    Wait and see is generally the best option for young players for sure.

    I am probably coming across as overly positive on Mitchell. I do think he's a highly rated talent but even if he wants to stay then he's not a cert to make it at United by any means. I was just genuinely baffled to see that post where someone listed our full back options for next season and had Laird as one of the four in the first team squad when afaik he hasn't even done any regular training with the first team vs Mitchell who has been around it for years, already made his debut, had first team football on loan etc.

    We don't have one good player for several positions. We are miles off talking about having two in every position yet.

    I know some people seem outraged by the notion of going for a right-back this summer, but is there a choice if we want to win titles?

    Dalot is not ready to take on the role; he is not even as good as Young at the moment. He has a lot to learn for us to be able to rely on him.

    We have to be aggressive if we want to win anything, so if it means signing a young established right-back (Wan Bissaka) then so be it. Dalot will just have to show he is good enough to take the position from him; if he cannot then he is not good enough I am afraid.

    People want us to win titles but then don't want us to be aggressive enough to build a team to do it. Being too lenient leads to an acceptance of mediocrity.

    Ethan Laird will break through next season and challenge Young/ Dalot! The money is much better spent getting in a play maker in midfield, natural right winger and a consistent striker imo

    Meunier or Sidibe are the RBs we should be looking at.

    Can’t we just buy Rafael back from Lyon?

    He’s about 29 now and a perfect age to add some experience to the rotation, leaving Young to be back up at LB, which we currently do not have.
