    Assuming our best players move on...

    Henderson
    AWB - De Ligt - Lindelof - Shaw
    McTominay - Fred - Maddison
    James - Rashford - Martial

    Chist that's depressing even with the Dutch legend to be.

    Ins
    Mounier 24m
    Maguire/ De Ligt 60-80m
    Rabiot free
    Fernandes 60m
    Rice 40m

    These are all gettable with room to improve. De Ligt is the one who would be hard and if his transfer negotiations are going to be long into the summer go for Maguire.


    Outs
    Valencia free
    Herrera free
    Darmian 5m
    Matic 15m
    Rojo 10m
    Bailly 25m
    Possibly De gea 50m

    Total :95m
    4-4-2 diamond

    Romero

    Mounier-----lindelof------Maguire------shaw

    Rice cdm

    Rabiot----------Pogba

    Bruno fernandes cam

    Rom----------Rashy as strikers


    Back ups: Henderson, Dalot, Smalling, Jones, Axel, Young, Fred, Andreas, mactominay, Sanchez, Martial, Jlingz and Greenwood

    I think Pogba will leave next summer. We will then get his replacement +plus improve the front line. If Hazard does leave Chelsea and they get banned from transfers that team should be more than enough to get top 4 ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal who's transfer budget apparently can only get you a wan-bissaka.

    I’d like to see this team;

    De Gea

    Nelson Semedo / Cancelo
    De Ligt
    Lindelöf
    Shaw

    Ndidi
    Pogba
    Doucouré

    Martial
    Griezmann
    Rashford

    But I think it will be;

    De Gea

    Meunier / Cancelo / AWB / Nelson Semedo (could be any of these or anyone else but think this will be a priority position)
    Bailly
    Smalling
    Shaw

    McTominay
    Pogba
    Matic

    Bale (really hope I’m wrong - complete write off injury wise)
    Rashford
    Lingard

    Rabiot

    D. James
    Lingard

    I think we'll only sign two or at a maximum three players and not a large transfer outlay either.

    No.. I predict and assume nothing. I check my chairs with makeshift weights that weigh as much as me before i sit.

    Also always check the car for a car bomb.
    And can’t forget filling up each condom with water before i use. Can’t be too cautious!

    No but in reality I’ve done threads like these and if anything just makes whatever moves we make less desirable considering either we knew what we should have done etc etc.
    My advice, let it play out, enjoy the summer and play as much footy as you can yourself

    God. Some of these lineups are depressing. Probably right, but very depressing.

    Current guess:

    -Pogba stays for one more year at least as Madrid get Eriksen, with him seemingly on the move and Spurs eager to sell outside the Prem (and Bayern seem more keen on Havertz)

    -De Gea goes to PSG, Maignan is our replacement

    -We sign Wan-Bissaka

    -Our season is an incoherent mess so while our starting lineup is nominally:

    Martial----Rashford---------------
    ------------------------------James
    ------Pogba---Fernandes---------
    ------------Fred-------------------
    Shaw---LCB---Lindelof-------Wan-Bissaka
    ----------Maignan-----------------

    we also play a lot of diamond with Fernandes as the false 9 central attacker type with Martial and Rashford either side of him and McTominay or Matic in midfield instead of James, and even 5 at the back with Wan-Bissaka a fine right-sided center back type in a 3 and Dalot or James as the RWB.

    That would be a spend of about 50M on Wan-Bissaka, 70M on Fernandes, 30M on Maignan, 18M on James and I have no idea who the CB we sign is, but let's say 35M, for a total spend of just over 200M but with De Gea recouping 50ish, Lukaku high 50s plus add ons and some other little sales like Darmian for 8 giving us about 90-100M net spend.

    We finish 5th or 6th and Pogba leaves

    Think we’ll only sign three players. Meunier, James and some midfielder to replace Herrera. De Gea will leave.

    de Gea

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka--Lindelöf–-Koulibaly--Saw


    Rashford/James--Fred/McTominay--Pogba--Vidic/Maddison--Bale/Martial


    Rashford/ Greenwood

    AWB is for me a key player and with James or Rash we would dominate that side against any team.
    Fred i think did a great job when he got the chance. Yes he lost the ball from time to time but overall he manage to get the ball a lot more times than he lost it.
    Bale is also a fantastic sign if we can get the salary down to a more normal level
    Koulibaly: I think we should just pay what they want and get done with it, his one of the best and he will help us to top 4 next season, its almost like a guarantee.

    Another thing about youth. We see players that's 19 and cost more than £100 mill. If we use Greenwood then in 2 years he will be in that level so my point is, why not invest in our own players instead of buying "Greenwood" for £100 in 2 years if you get my point.

    The below is based on players who I think we have any chance of signing. i.e. None of the top clubs will go for them and they want some cash so they will choose us.

    Realistic/Negative - I think Pogba and De Gea will be gone unfortunately and there will be no interested parties for Eriksen so he will come here - probably for a ridiculous fee and will be labelled our star signing but in reality will just be a downgrade on Pogba.

    -------------------------------- Cillessen--------------------------------

    ---Dalot---------- Alderweild----------- Lindelof ------- Shaw --

    -------------------- Mctominay ---------------- Matic -------------------

    -----Lindgard------------------- Eriksen---------------------Martial--

    -------------------------------- Rashford ------------------------------



    Realistic /more positive - We keep Pogba/De Gea and somehow sign 4 players + James 5. Still not good enough to win trophies but should be top 4 easily and if it all clicks then you never know.

    -------------------------------- De Gea--------------------------------

    ---Wan Bissaka---------- Koulibaly----------- Lindelof ------- Shaw --

    -------------------- Rabiot---------------- Matic -------------------

    -----Pepe------------------- Pogba---------------------Martial--

    -------------------------------- Rashford ------------------------------

    You're really undecided on Maguire and Koulibaly aren't you? ;)

    Think either would do but its a sad state off affairs when you have to pay circa £80m to get a centre-half who isn't left-footed that is comfortable/better playing left side of a two.

    Herrera and Valencia replaced, CB upgraded. James signed to cover the wing and sancho put on back burner. Other possibility is lingard out and another cm in, the Rice or Longstaff singing that will likely happen.
