    If you could make 3 realistic signings to improve our squad next summer who would you go for?

    de Gea

    Wan-Bissaka Maguire Lindelof Chilwell

    McTominay Neves Pogba

    Sancho Martial Rashford​

    Chilwell, Neves and Sancho are all gettable players for United, follow the new strategy we seem to be using and would be improvements on Shaw, Matic/Fred/Pereira & Lingard imo.

    Yours?

    Chilwell is so ridiculously overrated.

    I've been very impressed with him every time I've seen him play.

    This. If we are to improve on Shaw we need a better player than Chilwell.

    Williams will eventually replace Shaw. Don't need anyone yet

    Yep. :drool:

    We're still not a perfect team though are we? It's a United forum, surely there's nothing wrong with discussing potential realistic signings who could improve us? Regardless of the time of the year.

    Neves can pass but can not shield the defense that well.

    No harm at all. But exactly the kind of thread which will undoubtedly result in heartbreak next summer :wenger:

    I don't think we'd see Sancho and Neves in the same window, without losing Pogba.

    Sancho, Maddison and McGinn coming in with Pogba going out would be realistic I think

    I am used to it. It's just a thread on a forum for fun dude.

    To be fair I won't exactly be heartbroken if we fail to land Ben Chilwell. :lol:

    Sancho has to be our #1 target.

    That would be the best possible scenario imo. It would be my favorite also.

    Can't see that being realistic at all.

    Even for Sancho I think you'll need to how some marked improvements as a team over this season to attract that type of talent.

    Wilfred Ndidi (not sure if it's realistic since Leicester just sold us Maguire), James Maddison, Federico Chiesa. Waiting to see how Rashford and Martial do this season, if they don't impress then we need to go all out for Piatek.

    Can't see us taking Maddison and Ndidi in one window, but Piatek is a good shout.

    Maddison, Sancho & a combative midfielder. Back up or improvement on shaw but not a necessity.

    Was wondering if Fred performs really well this season (bit like Lindelof last season after a poor debut season) and Pogba stays, would we still need two midfielders?

    Can I have Sancho and Havertz and then just skip the 3rd signing because I can’t currently think of a decent defensive midfielder type?

    DDG
    Bissaka Lindelof Maguire Shaw
    ????? Pogba
    Sancho Havertz Rashford
    Martial
    Havertz will never happen but Sancho is a deal I reckon we could do.

    It’s only based on 1 game. Unnecessary thread. It’s unfair to judge who can step up or needs to be upgraded at this stage.

    By end of season you might make a new thread ‘’9 realistic signings to improve us”.

    How do you improve a team thats averaged a 4-0 win in the league so far this season? It’s impossible to tell, but for the fun of it:

    De Gea
    Wan-Bissaka Maguire Lindelof Shaw
    Kante McTominay
    Pogba
    Sancho Rashford Son

    I think I’m being more simple here than what you think. New season just started, transfer window just closed, pleased with the transfer business & let’s enjoy the season.

    Don’t need to overthink who do we need to sign for improvement.

    Kante, Sancho, Alex Sandro/another LB that I'm forgetting?

    Perhaps someone like Thiago Alcantara if he wanted to come here to go and mix with McSauce, Pogba and well, Kante if he signed instead of Alex Sandro and we can put up with Shaw but I feel like if we got Kante then the midfield would sort itself out and we need a better left back than Shaw.

    Don't think there are any available, realistic strikers out there.


    --------------De Gea---------------
    --AWB - Lindelof -- Maguire - LB--
    -------Kante - McTominay---------
    ----Sancho - Pogba - Martial------
    --------------Rashford--------------

    With that front four interchanging positions and Martial moving up to make a front two at times whilst Pogba and Sancho float around.

    Being too enthusiastic.

    Shaw, Fred & Gomes would like to join the fun too.
