    Would this be a masterstroke by Woodward if it happened?

    Martial --- Rashford --- Dembele

    could be the missing jigsaw for our right side. Dembele would also get along well with Martial and Pogba in the team.

    Ousmane has a bit of Anelka about him. Stinker of an attitude. Might be best avoiding. Nicolas Pepe or Jadon Sancho might be better options.

    This thread is essentially modern journalism. Stories with no facts, added together to become truth, with some sort of zeitgeist as the source.

    I can't see why PSG would want Sanchez. They have Neymar, Mbappe, Draxler, Di Maria, Cavani, and Choupu-Moting. He would be a very expensive (salary) rotation player.

    It can only happen if Real go all out to get one of Neymar or Mbappe, which doesn't seem very likely either.

    I just can't see PSG buying Sanchez when they can barely find minutes for Draxler, why would they have a seriously out-of-form, overpaid player that can't even get playing time at United that doesn't have the options PSG has? They get linked with every big money signing but for the near future unless it's a DM or some kind of defender, I wouldn't put any stock in the rumors.

    This should probably be in the transfer forum. And I have no idea why Barca or PSG would be interested.

    Sanchez is perfect for Tuchel's system as a striker.

    Sanchez will thrive in any team that actually attacks.

    What makes you think Barcelona would sell a player that's almost certainly going to become a superstar?

    Bullshit media stories aside, there's absolutely no chance they'd sell him.

    Apparently he's got some serious issues with professionalism and attitude, which is a big part of why he's not featured as much and Artur has skipped ahead of him in the team. So, seems like a good fit with some of our squad

    So we add another player with discipline issue and prima-donna attitudes to our bunch which Redcafe frequently slates for similar issues already? What could possibly go wrong...

    If Sanchez’s form doesn’t pick up, we won’t be able to sell him anywhere in Europe. Our only hope then would be China. On the other hand, if Sanchez starts firing for us, either in the RW or as ST, we won’t want to sell him.

    I will gladly trade you the Brooklyn Bridge for a Dembele plus a Sergi. Straight cash would work to. I’ll accept a low down plus easy payments.

    Sancho looks like the real deal but if he ends the season at Dortmund I'm afraid well need 100+m to get him.

    I personally don't trust Dortmund after all talents they produced turned out to be average at other club and another league, with the except of Lewa and Hummels.

    Some players might have bad attitude depends where he plays and also the manager. Never heard Mourinho had a problem with Di Maria, but we and LVG had problem with him. Dembele is look exactly the right winger that Mourinho wants, I think both will respect each other. He doesn’t suit in current Barcelona style, they use wide midfield or playmaker more than a winger right now.

    After forcing his exit at BVB, I don't want Dembele anywhere near our club. Also now he has a problem with being a professional player (being late for games, for example)

    For me, it looks like he is a player to avoid. If he isn't even showing up for games at his dream club in time, why would he behave any better at another club?

    Artur plays in a different position. Perhaps you mean Rafinha?

    He's not wrong. Coutinho has moved up to LW from CM and Dembele dropped to the bench. Would expect him to play more with Messi out but sure, Rafinha started the last game. Pretty clear Valverde doesn't like his attitude though so maybe Rafinha actually will be ahead.. There was a moment in a game recently where Dembele kept on to the ball too long and lost it, camera panned to Valverde who had a look of disgust.

    So now we’re even scared about how their English talent will do in England!

    Sancho makes sense for more than one reason I think. That said, I’d gladly take Dembele too.

    Martial-Greenwood-Sancho/Dembele/Rashford could be something in he future.

    And?
    Its an investment not a cost. Do you think he will be worth less in three years?
    If we could get our hands on anyone of Mbappe, Sancho or Dembele; the transfer fee in itself is unimportant. I guarantee you that the club would invest that amount for any of those players. Or even all of them. Its not a cost to buy a young talented player. The small risk if is the transfer market nosedives. Otherwise the transfer fee in itself is the smallest of problems.
    The relevant problems are that we will not attract any of those players because of other issues like we look like missing out on CL, we play boring football and look way off any trophy anytime soon. And there is the manager issue as well.

    If we can shift Sanchez, we need to do it ASAP.
    His form is probably not going to improve, get rid before his value dips further. Who we replace him with is a completely different story, I have no idea, but yes, a legitimate RW would be perfect.

    Especially in a league where he gets paid the same wages against pisswankshit teams.

    It's no longer possible to justify playing Sanchez as first choice in Martial's favoured position, so he needs to either up his game, find a new spot in the team and force hs way in there, or accept being bit part.

    So I wouldn't put it beyond the realms of possibility of him beeing sold (though it would be incredibly embarassing seeing as we bought him to replace someone else who we'd also basically only just bought).

    Beyond that though this theory melts into the murkey waters of vague rumours, outlandish presumptions and just completely making stuff up in the hope it becomes true.

    If PSG came in for Sanchez, United would think it was Christmas Day.

    I belive them.
    Please PSG, or China, don't care, come for Alexis. He might go to China soon, he wants money and he's not getting any younger.
    Go on Alexis, China has great food, weather, sexy ladies, lots of different kind of food for dogs...
    And we get free of some serious wages and a player we don't need and did not do much for us. Except goal against Newcastle.
    He bexomes best payed act...player in the world, and maybe they might be stupid enough to pay a lot for him.
    Win, win.

    So if Barca is selling on the cheap, then we could have a punt. Dortmund ripped off Barca on the Dembele deal, because they knew Barca had Neymar money.
    If Barca is expecting to recoup that, then I think it is a highly costly punt.

    I still need to see Sánchez under the right manager before I decide he has (pretty much) Rooney’d all over the gaff.

    He can’t be this bad, surely. Given Lukaku’s current form I’d be tempted to to play him up top and flank him with Martial and (one of) Mata or Lingard.

    Dembele, if he’s available, is exactly what our right flank is crying out for, mind.

    We should not be giving up on sanchez before trying him as a striker. Run a few games with Martial --- Sanchez---- Rashford and see how it goes.

    I'd rather they take Lukaku to be fair. I have a feeling Sanchez would perform better as a striker.
