    A shame that a major injury has hampered his form and progression.

    If United need to replace Matic, for me Neves is more suitable to immediately play as the first 11. He would just stay disciplined as the deepest midfielder and keep things ticking, while being able to play the accurate long passes besides Pogba. On that note, that would free Pogba from being the only one that can provide that type of passes.

    Rodri, from Ath Madrid, is also a pretty interesting player. To me, in the vs BD game in UCL, he is the more of a Carrick clone, from the style of play and physical stature.

    We don't need a Carrick clone, in the same way we didn't need a Roy Keane clone, we just need 2-3 top class midfielders that actually perform well together, know their roles and remain professional. What we do need in the squad is leaders and better footballers, particularly in defence.

    He missed both pre seasons under Bosz and Favre. Didn't suit Bosz's positional profile and under Stöger suffered like a lot of players from his coach's inability to get any structure into possession.
    Now he has Witsel in front of him who barely missed a minute and delivers good to very good performances like clockwork.

    It's not like he's free from blame, but it's hard to say where he actually stands given the last time he was first choice in a functioning team was under Tuchel.

    Yeah, he's the closest to Carrick i've seen.

    On Weigl, i still think there is a good player in there, even if he's going through a rough spell. Needs more time.

    BILD are saying he wants out in Winter transfer window, PSG and Tuchel likely to be involved in a loan with option to buy offer. Would love to take a punt on him though, especially in a loan with an option to buy situation, in that we can loan and if the new manager fancies keeping him, we can buy him. Think he could do well learning under Carrick coach too, seeing as how he is pretty much a clone, think he could slot into our midfield nicely too, just needs to find some of the form he used to have.

    I'll be shocked if Tuchel doesn't get him in January

    Why does he want out? Aren’t they top? I take it he’s out of favour then?

    He's only played 9 times this season. Witsel, Dahoud and Delaney are getting most of the game time.

    I'm not sold on signing Dortmund's bench players.

    We need some world class quality not a young player who has regressed over the past few years

    I was just thinking about him yesterday. I wonder how him and Verratti would do together.

    Wouldn't be against a loan with a view to a permanent signing but no way would I spunk big money on him right now. He's had a bad injury and he's not in great form at all. Talented player though and somebody i can see flourishing under Ole.

    He would want a coach he knows believes in him.

    Awesomely. He has the size Veratti lacks and the speed. That IMO would be one dangerous holding pair.

    He is good on the ball, but lacks the positional sense defensively. Has a blip in form for a while now and it is no surprise he was benched for most of the season. Tuchel could give him a fresh start and important role, with sharing some playmaking with Verratti, they could form a good partnership. Throw in Frenkie de Jong, and their midfield three could keep the ball for days without losing it.

    He hasn't developed from his early promise and I don't see how he and Veratti would work together at all. They are similar players but Veratti is much better.

    Verratti would just move higher up to the 8 position and Weigl would take the Motta DLP role. They had/have Marquinhos there

    You can't tiki taka alone. It would help Verratti a lot if someone came in who could fill Motta's boots. I don't know if Weigl could do that but it's a very small risk on loan with option to buy.

    Loan with option to buy is a no risk deal. Looked excellent 2 seasons ago.

    Marquis hi
    TBF Marquinhos has been developed for that role recently because they have no Weigl type in their entire squad aside from Veratti. That is why I'm convinced Tuchel will chase after him as he sees Dortmund trust the kid no more.

    You could make the argument a lot of our players have regressed over the past year. Under a different manager, they look a lot better. The same could happen if Weigl came here.

    If we are continuing with Pogba and Fred then, we need someone in Fernandinho/Casemiro /Kante mould - who can cover lot of ground and chase every ball.

    Not sure Weigl is that guy.
