I think you are wrong.I can't see us signing a RW this summer, and even if we do, I can't see us going after this guy.
Lets be realistic for a second. We have Amad, Pellistri, Elanga and (Greenwood) in that position already. None of these above are likely to leave, and all are only a year or two younger than Antony.
Also RW is way down on the priority list for this summer market.
I think it is more likely we will chase a hybrid ST/ wide forward type of player (Nunez & Richarlison come to mind) than a dedicated RW.
I hope I am wrong.
Greenwood - no chance we will play him again, even if he doesn’t end up in jail, playing him would seriously tarnish reputation of this club and anger our sponsors.
Elanga - not talent enough to play as starting 11 under ETH, can do as back up though
Pellistri - still far from first team level
Amad - physically not quite up to this league, although he seems to have talent to make it here one day
So we are only left with these players for our front 3:
Key starter: Ronaldo, Sancho
out of form/misfit: Rashford/Martial
Backup: Elanga, Garnacho, Diallo
We definitely need another starter, and perhaps better off selling one of Rashford/Martial.
