    Lucas is frustrating as hell and never really got the consistency his talent deserves. The stats have improved, his highlight reels are stunning but when you watch him across 90 minutes he's a player that will have you tearing your hair out.

    Just grab Mahrez, playing for United is about more than just football ability, it's self belief, confidence, actually enjoying being in the spotlight, conducting yourself in front of the press and public etc, basically you are either a United player or not, I have'nt seen or heard anything that suggests he would'nt be.

    Between €25m and €40m depending on sources. I guess a deal could be agreed around 30m.

    In my opinion the one target we should be going all out for is Christian Pulisic, this guy has it all, yes he is young and inexperienced to date, but i go as far as to say it would be like signing a young Ronaldo like we did many years ago. He's also American so i'm sure the Glazers would love that, he's also a Manchester United fan. He would cost a fair wedge but would love him to fill in that much needed RW slot for the next 10-15 years easily..

    Does anyone here rate Aubaumeyang? Not seen much of him but based on his stats he could add a lot of pace and goals to our attack

    2015–16 39 goals in 49 games
    2016–17 40 goals in 46 games
    2017–18 21 goals in 23 games

    Martial/Lukaku/Auba front 3 would be sweet

    I agree with you to an extent but I did read something last year where he was on loan at a team in Scotland from La Havre and he said he pretended to be injured one morning to get out of training in the snow .. Defo not united mentality that

    That was a trial at St Mirren 8/9 years ago when he was a teenager. He did well, they asked him to wait for a decision, he didn't like the snow, got homesick, went back to France.

    George Best got homesick and left Manchester without telling Busby. Thankfully no-one said "that's not United material".

    Not sure if Mahrez is top class but would be a step up and he looked like he had a good attitude when Leicester were winning the league and he was a key factor?

    Not the type of player United should be looking for at RW as he doesn’t have any special passing capabilities and is often hurt. Unless we get that type of player in a new CM signing I wouldn’t want him.

    Auba and Lukaku aren't creators. I wouldn't mind getting Auba and play them in 3-5-2.

    We really can't look past Mahrez. Goals, assists, creativity, passing, pace, crossing, shooting, dribbling, set piece taking - he's got it all. A counter attacking threat with top notch decision making, close control, ability in tight spaces and a mentality that rivals them all; selflessness, selfishness - it really can't get better than that. A no brainer.

    I am warming upto the idea too, he has shown, he isnt just a one season wonder,which people thought he was last year. I think he is a good option in the current climate and is at a good age of 27(in feb). Also can play in UCL and there is an advantage to that, he also will be priced moderately at around 40 million.

    First I've heard of that, but it's more a case of what you do when your a United player, I'm sure a lot of players have pulled sickies, I'm still for signing him.

    I love him, and think he's a great fit for us at RW but I think he'd fall out with Mourinho.

    I wanted us to get Mahrez during the summer when it looked like he was leaving Leicester on deadline day. Would suit our counter attacking style against the bigger teams while also providing trickery on the right when looking to break down teams the sit back.

    This. I don't understand why we arn't in for him yet. Even if we don't see him as a long-term option he would give us the much-needed flair on the right while still giving us the creative impetus and incisive passing that Mata and Miki provided there.

    Apparently Duncan Castles said that Thomas Lemar is high on Mourinho's wish list but we might not have the funds to make it happen this month, whereas Liverpool possibly could with the sale of Coutinho. I know Lemar usually plays on the left but I wonder if he could function on the right for us.

    Lemar is the Mourinho 10 that we lack.

    Id take Moura simply because at just 25 a world class coach like Mourinho would improve him. But IMO Mahrez should be our number one target.

    Seems he’s going to Liverpool. Another solid signing.

    Damn, would have been a great signing since we don't have a single proper RW in the squad at the moment.

    If Liverpool sign Mahrez then they would have 3 players who can play rw better than anyone we have for the position.

    Plays on the left mainly. Think he's been playing as a #10 recently.

    Wouldn’t that also be 3 players who would likely be off to the African cup of nations when it comes around. Liverpool have apparently said there is no intrest in Mahrez and he isn’t a target. Honestly don’t see how or where he’d fit in their system.

    Just read an article that Usain Bolt has supposedly been talking to SAF and Pogba about playing for United. He has a trial with Dortmund in March but he seems to think he can make it as a footballer. This would probably be a Woodward dream signing.

    @Adam-Utd @SS thanks, didn’t know that. Damn it, was hoping two of their now best players would be missing for part of a season.
