Doucoure of Watford for starters, if we are talking defensive midfielder.
Ndidi is a better player than him for that role
The question I ask is that we want Ndidi, Maguire, Tielemans, Chilwell and Maddison, from a Leicester team that hardly set the world alight last season. Personally I think Maddison is a number 10 and do we need him. Maguire is overpriced for the amount he will bring and Ndidi is okay, but only that. Tielemans I like and Chilwell would improve us.
Him and Tielemans would be excellent business by us. Never happen though
This is a fair point although I think he’d be as or more expensive than Rice.
I’d honestly rather get a bomb of a fee for Pogba and build a more functional midfield and attack at this point. It’s exhausting continually thinking about providing the perfect conditions for our supposed talisman to succeed in as he strolls about the pitch like he doesn’t give a toss.
Why wouldnt he leave Leicester?
Thats what I think
Because of their asking price.
I mean, it's really not that hard and it has nothing to do with making it work for Pogba. It's about the team and the team will benefit with a destroyer because Matic is not as good at breaking up plays, and is slow.
Are you talking to yourself?
had a long night
If we want a ball winner in front of our defence, then we should be going all out for either Ndidi or Gueye. Both are amongst most tackles and interceptions every season in the Premier League. Fantastic readers of the game.
even if he wants to leave you assume he wants to sign for United?
No of course not, we have had a few shitty seasons and are clearly the same level as Leicester now. Good point Jimmy.
Agreed re Matic. My point though was that if Pogba isn't here for the long term I'd much rather go after a different profile of player.
I'd hate for us to buy Ndidi if Pogba is leaving in all honesty. You alluded to that yourself. Much rather go for a DLP in that instance to pair with an all-action type like Ndombele.
This is all probably irrelevant though as it seems we're definitely after Rice.
because that was my pint wasn't it, not that other more appealing sides might be interested in him
Guinness for me please.
Interesting how long ago I posted that and how it reads like something I would still post today. I wanted him with us as a squad player then. Today, he would fit into our first eleven nicely.
If we do attract better players like you insinuated, Ndidi would still be a great player to bring off the bench.
Ndidi is ahead of Choudhury at the moment but being that Choudhury appears to be more versatile than Ndidi that could change this season. Brendan Rodgers works well with young players and he make take him to that next level.
I haven't seen evidence of this when I watch him. He's got the legs and the hunger, but I have serious doubts about his passing.
If we're going to a 4-2-3-1 I'm more intrigued by Doucoure, who also isn't a brilliant passer but attracts a ton of attention through the middle by making great runs and linking play with his mobility rather than sitting deep and picking passes.
