    A midfield of Dybala, Pogba, and Ander would be frightening. Just not sure for which team...

    Is this the lad that was involved in an incident with Miazga in the match against USA?

    The highlight of his career will be that League Cup final where he almost trumped Zlatan and won it for Southampton.

    I never quite understood the fascination with Dybala. Is he a very good player ? Yes! Is he the best on the market ? Far from it. Would he guarantee us 20 goals a season ? Absolutely not. He has been a 1 goal in 2 during his time at Juventus, where he has played for the best team in the League by far. Lukaku is slaughtered at United for having the same goal pr game ratio as Dybala. Despite playing for Mourinho.

    So no...I am perfectly happy with Martial, Rashford and Lukaku - at least until they are given a season with a manager who attacks the opposition. I can't see Dybala being a major improvment. Not to mention the Argentina-part - which never is a good combination with United.

    I don’t get the Fellaini hate, I really don’t. How often has this man proven to be our last beacon of hope? He is an excellent squad option to have, Jones & Rojo however are surplus to requirement.

    I don't hate him as a person, by all accounts he has a good mentality and always works hard, but I hate the fact that a midfielder with such limited technical ability has been able to survive this long at this club, it's the perfect symbol of how our standards have dropped. He isn't a good squad option to have either, yes there have been a couple of times where throwing him up front worked but it's not some amazing trick that's impossible to stop, nor does any other top club keep a player in their squad solely to be used as someone to hoof it upto.

    True. I'd sell Valencia, Rojo and Darmian before him. It's not like we are stacked in midfield. Fred has everything to prove and Pereira is just not good enough I think.

    Get rid asap. He is nothing but a human manifestation of the mediocre attitudes this club has been displaying for years now. About the only thing he contributes is someone to chuck upfront at the end to play hoofball too if things aren't going our way.

    I don't see him as an excellent squad option personally. He's useless at the passing game, mediocre at best as a stand-in for Matic, and pretty good if you want to pump balls into the box to nick a goal. We don't want to pump balls into the box though, we just don't want to be that sort of team. I don't recall any top managers ever thinking this was the optimum way to grab a late goal - just Jose.

    So what is he good for, really?

    The very fact that our "last beacon of hope" for the last couple of managers has represented hopeful long balls into the box hasn't helped.

    Decent squad option to have tbf to him. If we are to sell then let's hope he moves to China so we can get a big a fee as possible.

    Agreed. I think people see him as a efergy of the Moyes era. They probably feel like since he's been here we've been awful. Once he's gone the curse might lift.

    Honestly though in the last 2/3 years he's been much better than the first. He's never going to be world class but he's a grafter, he does the dirty work and is great in both boxes. Won us more games than people probably realise.

    I won't celebrate/be sad with him leaving, but I will wish him the best if he does move on.

    I wouldnt let Fellaini leave now - because he is our fourth best midfielder after Herrera, Pogba and Matic - but if we sign one quality midfielder in the summer - he can go. But I prefer him to Fred and perreira as it is today

    If he is leaving, a Chinese club will be win-win. He gets paid a shit ton and the we get a transfer fee.

    Liverpool push Van Dyke up top and pump 100 long balls to him in the last 10 minutes of a game they are chasing. They could sure do with Fellaini as an option off the bench.

    Imagine if we actually used Fellaini in the correct situations, instead of playing him as a DM or playmaker. Get him in the box in the final 10 minutes and get crosses and longballs to him to cause chaos. We would not have qualified for the CL without Fellaini taking 3 markers with him on that Ashley Young cross against Juventus.

    This idea that Fellaini simply existing in the squad means we aren't good is unfounded. Long balls to players good in the air has been a thing for top teams for ages, both Liverpool and Juventus utilize this tactic at the end of games right now.

    Indeed. Guardiola used to stick Pique up front in the closing stages of a game when they were chasing a goal. Van Gaal and Mourinho both found Fellaini useful enough to be worth keeping around for these kind of circumstances and there is nothing inherently wrong with that approach. Ideally though, we probably don't want someone as limited as he is on the ball starting games in midfield.

    If we want an aerial monster as a plan B, we might be better off with someone like Sébastien Haller, who can also play a bit and contribute during normal phases of the game.

    Anyway, it would not be a surprising development if he wanted out - he and Mourinho were apparently pretty close.

    United fans have short memories. Fergie wasn’t adverse to chucking it long when required, with the likes of Bruce, pallister or even O’Shea chucked up front. Fellaini is that guy because we don’t have any defenders who can head the ball in that way, particularly when smalling is out
