    I see a lot of people mentioning Fabinho here, I thought his performances had dropped quite a bit this season?

    Right winger, Leon Bailey looked very good in very few Leverkusen highlights I have watched.

    We also need one more midfielder who can contribute both defensively and in attack to play alongside Matic and Pogba.

    The issue is that those prices are wholly unrealistic. I realise a contract is just a contract but SMS only signed an extension like 10 months ago? and he's contracted for another 4 years, Lazio have the power, not to mention they will be tough negotiators, couple this in with the fact he's one of the most exciting young midfield prospects in the world and you're gonna be talking 100mill minimum, most likely higher.

    If Fabinho is 40mill then he's had a poor season, which infact he kind of has compared to last season.

    There is no way Leverkusen lets one of the Bundesliga's exciting prospects in Leon Bailey go for 40mill, see Dembele for the kind of price we'll probably have to end up paying.

    The only one i can see being even remotely correct is Sessegnon, and that could go either side of 40mill.

    SMS could probably be gotten for £70-80m. Sessegnon and Fabinho will be around £40m. Heard they turned down €40m for Bailey, but £45-50m should get it done at least.

    We need a massive relooking (as City did this summer), to be a serious contender for the title. City will get stronger, so does Spurs, Pool and Chelski.

    Play 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 against small clubs. Sell a lot of player and strengthen a lot too.

    In : 260M euros (and keeping wages balance fine)

    Fabinho ==> 50M from Monaco (Young's wages)
    Alderweireld ==> 30M from Spurs + Smalling (Smalling wages)
    Alex Sandro ==> 40M from Juve + Darmian (Mata's wages)
    Jorginho ==> 50M from Napoli (Fellaini's wages)
    Bale ==> 90M from Madrid (Ibra's wages)

    Out : 70/80M euros

    Mata : 30M to Leicester
    Ibra free
    Smalling : In Alderweireld deal or 40M to Arsenal
    Pereira : 15M to Valencia
    Carrick free
    Blind : 15M to Roma
    Young : 15M to Crystal Palace
    Fosu-Mensah : Loaned again
    Fellaini free
    Darmian : In Alex Sandro or Jorginho deal
    Tuanzebe : Loaned back at Villa
    CBJ : 3M to Bolton


    4 - 3 - 3 (with subs)

    De Gea ( Romero/Johnstone)

    Fabinho (Valencia)
    Alderweireld (Jones)
    Bailly (Lindelof/Rojo)
    Sandro (Shaw/Rojo)

    Jorginho (Mc Tominay)
    Matic (Herrera)
    Pogba (New one)

    Bale (Lingard)
    Lukaku (Rashford)
    Sanchez (Martial)
