    Brave man, 1 centre back. Well, if they’re not good enough, get them out of the team!

    You could play Lukaku as rush goalie to add an extra attacking dimension

    That's 5 in 5 out. Won't lose out to much.

    Sanchez for what? €50 because no one in their right mind would buy him for 50m. Due to his wages his value is very low. 10m and pay half his salary maybe

    I will go with something like:

    De Gea

    Wan-Biasska
    Maguire
    Lindelof
    Shaw

    Rabiot
    Pogba
    Fernandes

    Lozano
    Rashford
    Martial

    I think DDG will run down his contract and leave for free next summer. Pogba will want to go but with how Madrid are going, they can't afford 130+ million without breaching FFP. Lukaku will go and Lozano can play RW and CF so will provide cover if required. James I think has been bought to provide Martial with competition as I think Sanchez will go. Rabiot on a free and 60m for Lukaku would allow for the four other buys.

    ...thoughts?

    I think this is easily doable for United in terms of money and realistic targets to fill positions of need. In a crucial Summer like this, if you think United can’t do >£200m net spend you’re kidding yourself. We’re already heavily linked with Fernandes+Bissaka (clear favourites atm) and are finalists for De Ligt.

    Only real concern is selling Lukaku and not adequately replacing his goals but that’s a risk I’m sure United and myself here are willing to take if it means balancing out everything else. I’d much rather that than getting a replacement ST but not getting a RW if you get what I mean. Rashford+Martial can primarily play as central striker while having Greenwood mix in games when need be every now and then as well. As far as I’m concerned, it’ll be a make or break season for Martial and/or possibly Rashford. We’ll see what they’re made out of and their future will be decided by themselves, whether or not to keep them or not depending on if they’re deemed reliable according to this season’s performances.

    - Wan Bissaka for right back
    - For centreback DeLigt if we're lucky, if not I'd go for Maguire. Keeping Smalling and Tuanzebe whilst selling Jones and Rojo
    - in midfield I feel we need to keep Pogba for one more season but we also need two more players. Fernandes seems impressive and van de Beek could be good value. I like Ndidi and Ndombele fits the profile too.
    - In attack Sanchez needs to go, as does Lukaku if the fee is right. I'd give Martial one more season to show his worth. I want Sancho but realistically he is not available nor can we afford him if we make the signings I have listed. So we wait until next summer for him. But young James can't be relyed upon straight away and Rashford is inconsistent so we need an attacker too but I'm not sure who the best option is on that front.

    I can only see our transfers being draw out because woodward. I don't think he will be allowed to spend much. The biggest signing will be Fernandes, Ole will fill the bench with Youth.

    Aside from all the muppetry on this thread, don't you need a squad of players to choose from to "predict the United first team"? We don't have an agreed squad yet. When the window closes then this thread becomes valid, maybe "predict the strongest starting line-up" though. All the FIFA and Fantasy Football wannbe managers are having kittens over who they'd like, not actually who we have to choose from.

    True. I think we’ll get AWB, but feck knows what we’ll do if Lukaku and Pogba go. Just over 2 weeks to start of pre-season and everything is up in the air.

    If Manchester United can't make those signings happen then we're not as big of a club as we think we are. I can't suggest better than making money over the summer AND end up with a better team/squad.

    Gk - De Gea - most likely stay at the club, I don’t imagine we will get good value for him if we were to sell due to his contract.

    LB - Shaw - No speculation on any left back targets. Guessing Ashley Young and Dalot will be backup.

    RB - AWB - Will probably sign him for £50m, good RB and probably our best option to buy at the moment.

    CB - Lindelof and Maguire. Maguire is decent, pretty reliable and English so that’s a bonus, hefty price tag but if he is the best option available then get him as our defence is shocking. Lindelof is ok, in my opinion overrated simply because the rest have been diabolical.

    Midfield - Fred, Mctominay, Fernandes - I think we have missed out on Rabiot, Pogba wants out and should be sold if that’s the case. Not many rumours on any other targets except Longstaff so unless something else is in the woodwork we are pretty fecked in midfield. One of the worst midfields we will have had in a long time. But hopefully something is happening which we don’t know about.

    Wingers/forwards - Rashford, Martial, James - screams inconsistency for me. Who genuinely believes Rashfords and Martials form is going to dramatically change over the summer and James isn’t exactly going to be a world beater in his first season with us. We need a striker and RW but I don’t have a clue who it will be so these are the three I have chosen.

    If it stays like this our defence will be more solid but we won’t get the goals no matter how many Fernandes has scores in the Portuguese league. If Pogba goes and we don’t get a world class replacement then we are genuinely screwed. Team morale will probably be better but is then it’s down to Ole to see if he can get the best out of an average squad. My prediction for next season based on that team is 5th - 7th. Harsh but reality in my opinion.

    First eleven:

    De Gea
    Atal - Linderlof - Koulabaly - Shaw
    Fred - Pogba
    Sancho - (Felix)(Dybala)(Havertz) - Martial
    Lukaku/Rashford

    Second:

    Romero
    Dalot - Jones - Smalling - Young
    McTominay - Winks/Pereira
    Lingard/Chong - Gomes - Rashford/Karamoko Dembele
    Greenwood


    Prediction for Ole United:

    Oblak
    AWB - Linderlof - Maguire - Shaw
    Matic
    McTominay - Bruno
    Bale/Lingard - Rashford - James

    Romero
    Dalot - Jones - Smalling - Young
    Longstaff
    Fred - Pereira
    Greenwood - Haller - Martial

    Ole might get a big name attacker in the summer like Giezman or Bale. I think Bale will be at United.
