    Assuming we'd get 70 for Lukaku, I would invest as follows (realistically, I believe);


    DDG
    AWB ------------ LINDELOF ----------- MAGUIRE ----------- SHAW
    CARVALHO
    LONGSTAFF
    ---------------- POGBA
    MALCOM ----------------------------------------------- MARTIAL
    RASHFORD


    CB: MAGUIRE because there aren't that many better CBs available and wanting to join us
    CDM: CARVALHO is vastly underrated, he's the anchor in an over-achieving Portugal side. Could also do with NDIDI or SAUL but I feel both are unobtainable
    CM: LONGSTAFF seems to be the realistic bet, I think we need one more though, having LEMINA on the bench would provide good cover/rotation. I don't think FERNANDES is a good match for us, can see him being really frustrating if POGBA is kept
    RW: We all want SANCHO but it doesn't seem likely they'll sell him, and CHIESA is more or less Juve-bound. JAMES/LINGARD/MATA are not good enough to start so I'd like to bring in MALCOM or DEMBELE. Depending on how good GREENWOOD turns out, he can rotate ST/RW with RASHFORD and this new signing. I do not think an RW signing is likely though, we'll probably stick with MATA/LINGARD


    Bench:

    ROMERO, TUANZEBE, DALOT, LEMINA, McTOMINAY, JAMES, GREENWOOD


    Rotation:

    GRANT, SMALLING, ROJO, LAIRD, GOMES, CHONG, GARNER, MATIC, LINGARD, MATA

    Surplus:

    HENDERSON (loan), JONES, DARMIAN, SANCHEZ, LUKAKU


    Squad without surplus: 28

    Knowing Woodward, I am fully expecting a straight swap Pogba for Bale and £10m for a two year loan on Lukaku. The money will be spent on Bale’s signing-on fee.

    Nothing would surprise me Woody but please not to Bale. Although Bale was one of Woody's 4 dream signings on his list and he may still be obsessed with getting him to prove he is such a good CEO and always manages to get the targets 'he' wants.

    What about bringing in Diego Costa for a couple of years? He’d be a pretty good replacement for Lukaku or am I going mad?

    Agree with your post. Been saying foor a while they will pocket a lot of the money that's why I'd rather tsake players in excgange for Pogba preferably Casemiri plud £80m. You make an excellent point in bold part. I hope they sell the club to someone decent who doesn't have a shady background as soon as possible mate.
