    Martial's performance today shows that we probably need a left winger which adds to our transfer list. If Fred and Mcctominay come through then I don't see the need for a DM

    However given Martial's inconsistency and our lack of RW I think we should us the 4-2-2 diamond next season. Our squad should be like this



    .................................DDG................................

    Meunier......Linedlof.........Koulibaly..........Shaw

    ............................Mcctominay.......................

    ....................Saul..................Pogba.................

    ..............................Fernandes.............................

    .................Rashford............Lukaku............

    We should sign Lozano too. He would be a great rotational option when we want to switch formation as he can play LW/RW and the lad actually wants to play for us too

    That's insane. You don't sell a proven PL striker and replace him with an unproven graduate player. Especially when we're already light upfront. There's no reason to sell Lukaku unless we're upgrading him.

    That's nowhere near a title challenging team. Hope we go for something like this

    DDG................................

    AWB......Lindelof.........Toby..........Shaw

    ............................ Rodri.......................

    ....................Fekir/Erikson.................Pogba.................


    Sancho.............. Rashford............Martial


    Get rid of Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Rojo, Mata, Herrera, Sanchez

    Midfield would be a million times worse than what we got with Pogba

    If we want to play a diamond, we might need to upgrade the full backs (more so than we believe) so they can offer us the width we'd sacrifice.

    Good spine, but Lukaku is not good enough. We should go for Piatek or Felix, different player types but an upgrade on Lukaku. But that would take our spending to unrealistic levels.

    Saul McTom
    Fernandes Felix Pogba
    Rashford

    That is a cool 250m plus 80m for Koulibaily. Lukaku and Martial might fetch 80-100m so it might be doable but still unlikely.

    If I was running the club then I would go crazy this summer, find every available penny and have an absolutely massive spending spree. This is a unique summer as there are a number of very special young players who are very likely to move and we should be competing for all of them. We obviously wouldn't get them all but we should be aiming for De Ligt, Sancho, Felix, Jovic, Wan Bissaka and Hudson Odoi.

    Plus adding in the factors of us having a new manager who needs backing, having not spent much last year and being so far behind our rivals for far too long.

    See Bayern for an example. Being prepared for 2019/20 by arranging future signings.

    Central midfield is poor. Not enough quality.

    Where does this infatuation for Madsison comes from? Not good enough for united
    Furthermore, while it's good to look at the academy for players, most of them aren't ready for 1st team football.

    Garner, greenwood, Lard,... All nice prospects but they need time and someone to learn from too

    Rabiot, Rodri, Sancho, De Lijt and the addition of a full back either left or right will be enough. I think a left back is more needed personally with Dalot being a regular next season. Someone like Rose would be a good addition to rotate with Shaw.
