    Surely a WUM?

    For those of you who don't want to click on this, the author suggests that we are (or should be) looking into Yaya Toure, Charlie Adam and Gareth Barry. And I'm not joking.

    I don't like Fellaini but he does have a role in the team than need to be addressed. In my opinion we should go for a massive upgrade though. Someone like Leon Goretzka

    If we're going for a tall imposing player that can hold up the ball well and likes to get forward, Milinković-Savić is a good shout.

    Yeah, I wasn't talking about you but about the article itself, that lists Toure, Adam and Gareth fecking Barry as his possible replacements.

    Goretzka would be a nice addition to the squad — and so would be any capable midfielder to be honest, we really lack those. Don't think that the height and the physicality is that big of an issue when we already have Pogba and Matic tbh.

    Wow. You weren't kidding. That's exactly who they've recommended. Must be a joke.

    We definitely need a replacement. It's not about being a big-man or even so much a plan- B. We need players like him (more than one in my opinion) that have real grit and drive. Fellaini's performances improved with the media writing him off, his own (spoiled) fans booing him and a trio of MUFC managers.

    The more players with that fortitude we have the more likely we are as a club to escape the burdensome past few years.

    Sergej Milinković-Savić is the answer.

    You don't need to replace a part in your car that wasn't needed in a first place. Any lad from academy like Gomes, Buffonge should get a chance instead... or just get some poor, talented kid off the streets, if you ever think about creating a football legend for your own.

    Goretzka, Savić ? Sure, why not... Just hope the princess Fellana won't sue you for inconvenient feelings, you're causing him.

    I can’t imagine anyone is going to pay him more than he already earns he is just trying to get a pay rise. If he won’t sign a 2 year deal on the same terms then let him go and move on, he doesn’t deserve more money and won’t be a big miss. We don’t need average players tied down on expensive contracts.

    Neither fellaini or Herrera are ever going to be good enough to be any better than squad players. Both need to be sold/released and replaced over next 1-2 years.

    Two words I never thought I'd see. Love Fellaini though.

    The only player good enough to replace him is Modric. But he's getting on a bit and I don't think Real would sell.
