    Jose Mourinho: ''So maybe we don’t get two, we get one, but we need one player to give us more options, the squad needs that balance, we have players that belong to the squad but cannot play for next three or four months, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, if Zlatan stays we have three or four players that only by the end of the year can be back to football''.

    Very interesting words for Mourinho.

    In what position do we need more options and who will give the squad balance?

    In which way does Perisic give us balance?

    we do need someone who can chip in with 10-15 goals a season so the suggestions here don't fill me with joy even though they are probably close to the mark

    Has to be a fecking left back, right?

    We have no Shaw, no Rojo, no Young..... who the feck is going to play there for the next 5 months? Blind? Jones?

    If we're going to have even a sliver of a chance next season we need a DM and a left back above all other positions. We also need a winger so that's 3 priority signings with nothing on the fecking horizon.

    I'm starting to wonder whether Jose is going to move to three at the back. I doubted it for a long time but it makes sense if he is bringing in Peresic.


    DDG

    Bailly - Jones - Lindelof
    Valencia --------------------- Peresic
    Herrera - Pogba
    Rashford - Lukaku - Martial​

    Shaw and Young are not out for that long. In fact they may be available for selection by the time the league starts.

    Seeing as José wants two signings, it's likely to be DM and winger. LB will be considered only if we sell Blind.

    He'll never play Perisic at wing-back. That's the sort of thing Pep does (playing attackers in defensive positions).

    Perisic will be a winger-cum-auxillary striker, and a good one at that. I for one am pretty excited to see him here.

    Now that Chelsea have signed Bakayoko, maybe Matic will be on his way to OT, but it seems Chelsea are keen to sell him to a club outside the EPL, Juventus and Inter being mentioned, but maybe Matic and Peresic will be the next arrivals.

    Yeah surely buying Matic for that kind of money would be our way of apologising for stealing Lukaku?

    The transfer window and long period through the summer withought football has been more excruciating than I can remember. On top of that there is so much at steak on next season, another season without the league for me is unthinkable

    What I would do:

    Fabinho
    Try to get one of Alexis, bale, or dembele but if we can't then try and get Lemar

    Thats true, but I think after Van Persie he'd sell Sanchez to literally anyone but us. Hope I'm wrong though, would absolutely love to have him.

    I'd temper that hope mate, I think it is going to take more time and with not getting Griezmann the side is still short on firepower.

    No chance. We're signing two more for sure. I just wish they were Sanchez and Fabinho but it'll be Perisic and Matic/Dier most likely.

    I'm feeling like it won't be Matic, Chelsea will absolutely sell him abroad if there's interest and there apparently is. No way they want to do any business with us for a while after the Lukaku issue. Dier may very well want to leave but it sounds like Spurs won't sell. If they go ahead and buy a midfielder then maybe we have a chance.

    Id like to say we get Nainggolan, although I think he'll end up renewing with Roma. Dendoncker would be a really nice acquisition, but I doubt he's for sale after Tielemans left. Fabinho seems to (sadly) be a non-starter, as the only outlets linking us with him seem to be of highly questionable repute. I could see Jose going for a surprise here, maybe a player like Wylian Cyprien, Morgan Sanson or Jean Michael Seri. But i'm going to go with Matuidi for this position.

    For the winger, I do think we'll eventually get Perisic, though i'd rather we go for Sanchez obviously. If in fact we don't end up with Perisic, I think Gelson Martins and Keita Balde Diao could be looked at as options.

    TL;DR - Perisic and Matuidi

    He said more options and provide squad balance. Has to be a midfielder.

    Should be: Sanchez and Fabinho

    Will likely be: overpaying for Perisic and Dier (Welcome to Manchester)

    I think we will only sign one and it will be Perisic.
