If the Sanchez to Juve talk is true, maybe we can get Cancelo the other way.
Age doesn't have any correspondence with capabilities aside playing experiance. Evra succeeded here because he had the talent to make him one of the best in Europe. The concensus on this site is to give Dalot time in his position because the same was done with Evra. The argument is that Dalot isn't poor as a fullback because he's inexperienced, he's poor as a fullback because he lacks the quality defensively period. No amount of time is going to substantiate that hence the club are looking at replacements to begin with.
If Dalot was half as good a fullback as most deluded fans say, he would be considered for development urgently and we wouldn't need a right back at all.
You must be kidding.
He’s at Inter anyway
No. Im not kidding.
You dont think Soares, an established premier league player and International is a worse option than Young?
Granted he isnt a world beater and not a fancy name but he is an actual rb unlike young or valencia.....
I dont think it would happen anyway but some low key signings that bring better balance to the team is what we need
Not sure if this has been posted yet bur Cancelo has come out and said he wants to stay at Juve. That's one off the list then
Wan Bissaka said something similar. So, I guess Meunier would be the best option considering he would cost 25m.
You can't look beyond wan bissaka and aurier
Soares would definitely be better offensively than Young, but defensively he's not near good enough, think he'd struggle as often as Young does.
Inter have an option for 9M and nobody seems to think they'll pick it up, that can't be a sign he's good enough for us as anything other than a backup, and it doesn't seem like Dalot is ready to start.
Wouldn't want Aurier here. He's hardly been a positive signing for Spurs, and we shouldn't be signing there cast-offs.
Definitely agree on AWB, however it seems he will stay at Palace for another season.
Just get Wan-Bissaka and be done with it. Adding him and having Dalot would mean that we don't have to worry about this position for 10 years. If we don't go for him now I can see him going to Spurs or shitty. Just do it.
It's that simple.
Ahh I meant muenier

Apparently PSG are negotiating with that Atal kid. Maybe to replace Meunier?
Let us hope.
Youcef Atal is a beast. Another man of the match performance today. That makes 8 for the season.
Contributes at both ends of the pitch. He's such a baller Nice have used him as a midfielder & attacker too on the right side of the pitch.
Crazy if we are not in for him. Forget Meunier. This is guy to get.
How is he defensively because that's seem to be priority for our management if we are looking to bring limited footballer like Wan-Bissaka.
Sime Vrsaljko is modern RB who is coming back from injury and will last for many more years and Atletico will let him go 100% for like 15 mil so it's not big gamble either. He would be upgrade on anything we have. We could rotate him and Dalot on that position.
Probably cost less then Meunier too. Buy.
Jamie Jackson is saying we'll be targeting a Left back in his Guardian column.
Vrsaljko is a great shout, if he's available for 15 mil we should be all over him.
I said it before in this thread. He is the best RB we can get this summer imo. He has a lot of potential, been really good already and will cost not so much. It seems PSG are in for him.
Yeah PSG would know all about him I'm sure. It would suck if we helped them offload Meunier for something like €25m and they got a better, younger Atal for like €20m.
He's going to be available for 18m € as far as I know. At least that was info I had some time ago prior to his surgery. I know he's doing very well on recovery an we could/should "steal" him.
How about Maitland-Niles ? Arsenal do need the money. He was not very good in the final vs Chelsea...
If we can get Wan Bissaka for 50m or less then we should be all over that. Best case scenario in my mind is we sign a left back and then agree to buy Wan Bissaka for cash + Ashley Young. (I can dream right?)
An experienced RB and Young, Laird and Dalot to cover both sides.
Not quite sold on Wan Bissaka but really struggling to think of names. Suppose Barca won’t be interested in letting go of Semedo?
Meunier might be our best option actually. Have no clue who Atal is
Wan Bissaka definitely, but £70 million is too much, would go to £50 million, but that would include add one for appearances, International call ups. That would tighten up the right side immeasurably, Dalot would be a decent back up for both full back positions and also Fosu Mensah would be an alternative.
Could probably buy Atal and Alex Telles for less than the price of Wan Bissaka, allowing us to move on to other targets with both fullback positions strengthened.
Tierney and Vrsaljko also
... Or Meunier and Alderweireld (I prefer to sign a CB than a LB this summer).
Wan Bissaka as a defensive full back and push Dalot up to right wing. The lad can actually cross on a good day, and is decent at finding space. Dalot can also be a backup for the RB position since he'll have to rotate with the rest of the attackers we have, and can compete with Wan Bissaka if we decide to buy Sancho next year.
Either that or we bring in Meunier for a smaller fee and make Dalot his understudy. Finally we put "bird shit" in Young's mouth which will make him sick and he'll have to sit out most of the season.
Dont get why so many talk about Dalot, a lot of hype when we signed him, looks talented but he has literally not done anything as of yet, also personally not sure he is actually that good defensively....but hey everybody wants full backs that can attack?
Yet Wan Bissaka has player about half a season more, has been defensively probably the best full back in the league this year but a lot of people dont want him as they dont think he can attack at all, which I disagree with anyway.
21, English, defensively already superb and for me is good supporting in attack, and should be much better if he was at a side that is playing attacking football. Sure, his crossing and final ball needs a lot of improvement but this Bissaka cant go forward band wagon, no way we should sign him, baffles me. The fee is stupidly high, so was Walker, so was Van Djik and £60-65m as crazy as it sounds I think will be talked of as a good deal in a few years time
Defenders must be able to defend first and foremost. Robertson and TAA have warped a lot of minds with their excellent performances this season. Watch teams shut off their space next season and see what great attacking players they are then. And although Robertson looks like he can defend, TAA is ropey.
Someone who can run, tackle and knows where to stand in defence will do for me.
Well it is not easy to stop them since a lot of teams need to fall deeper in order to stop Salah and Mane getting too much space. This then allow the fullbacks to bomb forward.
Yeah, same way Marcelo's space was shut off.
This is what Woodward thinks and almost certainly will happen:
This is what fans think:
AS Roma's Alessandro Florenzi. Good technique on the ball, good crosser too but quite small.
The times I saw him play, I was impressed with his attacking skills. But I can't see Ole going for him. Good player though.
Leicester got Ricardo Pereira for what, 25m?
He's looked good everytime I have seen him too.
I don't know if he will leave too. All these Roma's players hardly leave their club. Totti, de Rossi et al. I think he's been touted to replace de Rossi as the next captain or so.
