    Defense: Cancelo and Koulibaly... They are the best available (De Ligt won't come)
    Attack: Dybala/Felix and Pepe... I think Sancho will stay one more season at Dortmund


    The midfield is a bit difficult because it depends if we lose Pogba and Herrera. There are quality players like Rice, Ndidi, Ndombele, Barella, Neves, Tielemans, Fernandes, Van de Beek, Havertz, ...

    If we sign just 2 mids, then Fernades and Ndombele.

    I try to be realistic

    Attack OUT - Sanchez and Mata
    Attack IN - Dybala and Chiesa

    Midfield OUT - Matic and Herrera (he is leaving anyway)
    Midfield IN - Rodri and Barella

    Defence OUT - Smalling ( could have picked Jones or Rojo too) and Young
    Defence IN - De Ligt and Wan Bissaka

    Get rid of Sanchez and Lukaku and replace with Dybala and get this feeling we will get Douglas Costa

    It's important to sign 6 players (CB, RB, CDM, CM, RW, ST) to compete for the league. We don't need players that will cost more than 100m, we could build a great team with quality players without spending a lot of money. Also, it is important to sell the deadwood.

    De Gea
    RB - Lindelof - CB - Shaw
    CDM
    CM
    - Pogba
    RW - ST - Rashford​

    We could sign Alderweireld and Meunier for 50m, also players like Tielemans, Pepe, etc that are quality and not expensive.

    IN

    Defence - Aldeirwereld, Koulibaly.
    Midfield - Neves, Tielemans.
    Forwards - Zaha, Cristian Pavón.

    Even these targets I'm not sure are realistic. But 5 of those 6 are young players. That is what the club should be going for, not some established 28 year-old of similar profile to Sanchez.

    OUT

    Defence - Jones, Young
    Midfield - Herrera, not sure the team can afford to lose 2 midfielders!
    Forwards - Lukaku, Sanchez.

    That actually is a consideration because Arsenal already couldn't fill their EL squad this season, and have now lost Ramsey and Welbeck.

    Wow, realistic ? I would say the chance of getting any of them is remote, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't disagree, but you're looking at a £400m lay out, and an income of about £20m ?

    De Ligt might not be realistic now, Rodri will also be hard to get if City are in for him. If we sell Pogba and Lukaku, i dont think it will be expensive at all. Of course also getting rid of Alexis and the other players confirmed leaving.

    Luka Jovic. We have to get him. We lack of a clinical finisher. Every top team has a prolific forward who is their top scorer. In our case, Pogba is our top scorer. It says a lot about our forwards


    Our player of the year is Shaw. The previous years, it was De Gea. That says a lot of about the squad in general. Lack of quality across the field.

    DEFENSE:
    De Ligt
    Cancelo

    MIDFIELD (If Pogba decides to leave):
    Rodri
    N'Dombele
    Havertz

    ATTACK:
    Sancho
    Felix

    I have noticed that Fernandes is more popular here than Havertz, do you think Bruno Fernandes is a better CAM? Or Wan Bissaka / Meunier than Cancelo?

    As Valencia, Herrera & Mata are leaving on a free I'm Not counting them.
    Also trying to keep it vaguely realistic cost wise and possibility of signing them wise.

    Defence:
    Out: Damian (5mil), Rojo (Free)(really need to get rid of Bailly and one of Jones & Smalling too but hey ho you said 2)
    In: Skriniar(40mil) & Sessegnon (30mil)

    Midfield:
    Out: Pogba (110mil), Matic (15mil)
    In: Tielemans (45mil) Rice (65mil)

    Attack:
    Out: Martial(40mil) Sanchez(-15mil as we are gonna have to pay his wages)
    In: Sancho (85mil) & Brandt (21.5)

    Out= £155 mil
    In= £286.5
    Net £131.5
    Vaguely realistic....Vaguely.

    Obviously Sancho isnt coming this summer and Jovic is off to Madrid while I doubt we're in for Cancelo and I still think De Ligt is going to Barca. Also I dont think we are seriously in for Tielemans even though it's a no brainer signing. Rabiot is the only one there I see us buying this summer.

    Midfield.- Partey, NDombele, and Fernandes. --- Matic, Pogba and Herrera out
    Attack.- Mousa Dembele, and Pepe.--------------- Mata and Lukaku out

    I would get in AWB, De Ligt (if we can't get him - Koulibali), Rice and Rabiot (not my dream player but he is free and that counts for a lot), Fernandes or Felix

    Out: Rojo, Darmian, Bailly, Herrera, Valencia, and possibly Lukaku (money in would be about £40m w/o Lukaku, maybe £90m with Lukaku)

    Cost for signing the players: De Ligt £75m, AWB probably £50m, Rice £50m, Rabiot free, Fernandes £75 M or Felix £90m

    Total cost: £250m - £275m

    So if we sell Lukaku - the net cost would be around £170M - we could even sell DDG and replace him with Henderson to lower costs down to £120M or so

    This would be a huge step in the right direction: We wouldnt win the league, but it will arguably be the most talented squad in the league - which could pay dividends in 18-24 months.

    Henderson, Romero, Grant
    De Ligt, Dalot, Young, Smalling, AWB, VNL, Jones, Shaw, Tuanzebe
    Matic, Pogba, Fred, McTominay, Rice, Fernandes, Rabiot, Chong, Gomes, Garner
    Martial, Rashford, Greenwood

    But to be honest, Smalling,Jones,Andreas,Darmain and Bailly should also go but it could take until next summer before we offload all the deadwood. Fellaini,Herrera and Valencia was a good start!

    If no De Ligt then Maguire, Pepe because I don't believe Sancho will move this season but we should go all out for him whenever he becomes available. If Pogba leaves this summer then I'd go for Felix too.

    We have lost our place in the Champions league in the last years. Every transfer window is going to be more difficult to sing top talents. I hope we have the ambition to sign what we need (like Madrid, Barca, Juventus, PSG, City, Bayern).

    Sometimes less is more when we sign the best players we can get (quality over quantity).

    If we are going to sign just 3 players, I would go for De Ligt, Sancho and Havertz.

    Pogba doesn't want to be here, then sell him and sign 2 midfielders. Same with De Gea, we have Romero and Henderson to replace him.

    Also, I hope Ole can get the best of our current players.

    It seems that could end up signing 6 players:

    Maguire
    Wan Bissaka
    Longstaff
    Fernandes
    James
    Yedder

    I guess that Valencia, Darmian, Herrera, Pogba, Lukaku and Sanchez may be the ones who won't continue in the club.
