    Really? You don’t reckon he’d want to step up to United?

    Atletico Madrid were reportedly interested in the summer but he's got a strong affinity with Celtic and apparently wants to be there if they win 10 in a row. I guess it is possible but isn't a sure thing.

    Ben Chilwell is excellent. We need to sign him.

    I like Lascelles at Newcastle, think he's gone under the radar a bit, just as good as Harry Maguire and would be a lot cheaper.

    Lemina at Southampton looks classy. He could definitely cut it at a bigger club.

    That Axel Tuanzebe from Aston villa looks a proper United player

    Yeh that's where he's played for us, he's such a good dribbler, his close control is so good, can easily beat a man and his vision is very good too.

    Which British players are ready for the step up? It's always nice having a British core of players.

    I’d have no problem with Dalot and Ricardo Pereira at RB. Ben Chilwell and Shaw at LB

    A name that has not been mentioned, Andre Gomes of Everton. He is a very tidy midfielder with good ball retention ability.

    Doherty of Wolves as well has been a prominent full back that has been critical to some of Wolves better performances.

    Fraiser of Bournemouth. Very similar to Shakiri and is a good offensive threat.

    Being honest, I don't really see any that are obvious.

    That's what scouts are for I guess. It's probably easier to pick out the players that should leave the club rather than the ones that should come in.

    Was surprised West Ham managed to signed him.

    Do you think could possible be down to wages may or the fact he thought Chelsea was the best place for him at the time?

    If you are correct and he chose Chelsea over us it is worse than I thought "
    Hate it when this happens.
    Why do you think he chose Chelsea right at the end mate?

    I was always under the conception of we were too tight to pay Hazard's agent's fee although I could be wrong, I never blamed what I thought was the issue on Sir Alex (at the point I thought the owner's were being with the money) and used to debate it with my mate.

    At the time we had so much pull and the greatest manager in my opinion ever in Sir Alex Ferguson I thought that we would definitely have got this guy.

    That's interesting, and a good reflection on his character, I'd say.

    Everytime I watch Leicester he always looks good. Very good player indeed.

    Quite surprised Doherty has only had two mentions, very attacking and creative on Wolves right hand side, think he’d be a good fit.

    Wan Bissaka also highly rated at Palace.

    Solly March is a bit interesting, although he might not become that much better than he is.
    Digne at Everton has some very good stats this season. Same with Ryan Fraser.

    Doherty has been largely excellent for us this season, but he wouldn't work for anybody playing a back four, whether its at this level or below as he cannot (even by his own admission) defend. His strengths are shown up by our system and his flaws are largely covered. He has the odd day where the Doc of old returns (see Huddersfield), but I'm still struggling to believe it's the same bloke who was a diabolical full back for us 18 months ago. All credit to him.

    Yeah I was watching the Fulham game and the commentator was saying he can defend, which he 100% can't and he basically plays as a winger anyway. Seems like a similar situation with Alonso at Chelsea, that the team completely suits him and makes him extremely effective.

    I love him! He was the biggest influence in our promotion season, faded a bit last season in the prem, but it came out later he was suffering from depression after the death of his dad and his wife leaving him and taking the kids back to France. He's playing more again now maybe 15-16 starts this season, but on his day he is brilliant.

    Leicester have some real talents there! Maddison, Ben chilwell, Ricardo Periera, Ndidi and Maguire. I would happily take any one of them. They are all superstars in the making.

    I would love to see Neves and Wan Bisakka, make the step up. Neves seems ready now but Wan Bisakka definately needs more time, and he's English so one to watch for sure.

    Andre Gomes of Barcelona you mean, its possible they may look to sell at the end of the season after the loan, especially if Rabiot comes in.

    I'd have no interest in Andre Gomes, hasn't impressed for Everton, didn't impress at Barca.

    Chilwell is the one for me. He's not exactly below the radar, so I expect a few clubs will be in for him.

    What about Watford's Abdoulaye Doucouré? He'd be a very good squad player.

    Yea that one. He has put on some good display whenever I watched him play for Everton. Good on the ball, strong, technical gifted and a very tidy passer. I would definitely have him here over Fellaini, but the only problem is that he plays a role somewhat similar to Pogba. Rather give the secondary hybrid number 8 and 10 role to one of our youth product.


    Another name that has not been mentioned.

    Ademola Lookman.

    Played well at Leipzeg last year. Desperately wanted him back. Think Paul Mitchell would have had something to do with scouting him.

    He could be better than a squad player. The player we should have got instead of Fred. We should see if City are still interested in Fred and then get Doucouré to replace him.

    Is he? I know he’d been linked. I thought PSG were close to signing De Jong as a replacement for Rabiot. Maybe they could be going for both?!

    I've liked the look of Lerma from Bouremouth. It's still far too early to say he's going to make it but I think he has talent.

    I know Koulibaly is the big target for the summer, but can we approach Napoli for Fabian Ruiz as well? Guy seems to be the perfect replacement for Mata/Herrera/Fellaini in central midfield.
