United Pro's latest activity

  • Thiago Silva on a free transfer even purely for his leadership skills and winning mentality will be worth it. He's still got a few years left if managed correctly.
  • United Pro replied to the thread Sergej Milinkovic Savic.
    I'm fairly sure he can play there fairly competently. I remember watching him fairly deep last season and at times this season with Luis Alberto and Parolo/Lucas slightly further forward at times. He's arguably better further forward but he can...
  • Even if that's true there's no chance I'm believing anything coming from Delaney.
  • United Pro replied to the thread Kai Havertz.
    Alli's level has fallen these past two seasons but I guess my comment was more about how both players are better closer to goal and score quite a few goals when playing further up front. It'll be interesting to see Havertz in England, as imo due...
  • United Pro replied to the thread Kai Havertz.
    I've seen a few people comparing him to KDB recently. I've not seen an awful lot of Havertz, but he reminds me more of Dele Alli rather than KDB in his close control and movement.
  • I've not seen much of him but was impressed whenever I have seen him. Extremely tall but also very good on the ball. I remember reading articles on him last year comparing him to VVD, so I wonder how he's developed this season.
  • United Pro replied to the thread Willy Kambwala.
    Axel has a lot of the attributes to be a top CB. He has a lot of qualities that, on paper, would make give him a good partner for Maguire. However, his recent injury record has been atrocious and he's still very untested as a starting CB in the...
  • United Pro replied to the thread Willy Kambwala.
    Hard to say really. I remember watching clips of him and thinking he looked more talented than Tuanzebe (who was one of the best defender we've produced in years), but who's to say he'd develop the same way had he moved here?
  • United Pro replied to the thread Willy Kambwala.
    I remember reading similar stories a few years back on Upamecano, where we didn't pay a small fee for him (relatively large fee for his age at the time) and ended up missing out on him. There does seem to be a shift in that approach and we have...
  • "Does it make sense to limit our spending this summer?" as opposed to, I assume, unlimited spending. To answer briefly, yes it's not feasible to spend without a limit. If your point is, should we perhaps spend over our budget to strengthen the...
  • United Pro replied to the thread Jack Grealish.
    I had previously preferred United prioritse funds in a CDM over another play marker, but looking at the distinct drop in quality once Bruno is substituted out for Pereira (with Lingard likely to be sold), I think signing a creative play maker...
  • The problem with this approach is that it's firstly reliant on Greenwood starting pretty much every game next season and continuing to improve. 1 injury and the season could be over for us. Sancho also has 2 years left on his contract, so he...
  • United Pro replied to the thread Thiago Alcantara.
    Agreed, absolutely cracking midfielder and I would hate him joining Liverpool. Only thing I can see against the transfer is his age and injury record. The former isn't much of a problem as he's only just turned 29, but he will likely miss 10+...
  • United Pro replied to the thread Jack Grealish.
    Imo Grealish is first choice but we're negotiating for other targets (VDB, Tolisso, etc) in case Villa ask for too much.
  • United Pro replied to the thread Donny van de Beek.
    Deeper perhaps but I don't see many wanting him to play as a #6. I've seen most Ajax fans saying that he's better with freedom to go forward so either an attacking #8 or a #10. If we do sign him then it'll be interesting to see where he plays and...
