Maybe if it was the 90s I'd be worried about United getting him.
Yeah because I care about what impression I give out on an Internet forum. Am I doing this correctly?
Taken the time to learn? It’s mentioned like 874 times a day every day during the January transfer window. Anyway, bye.
CHO CM1 CM2 Sancho
Go 4-4-2. Seems Pogba and Herrera might be off, so rebuild a central midfield that can play as a 442.
Not saying this is my preference, mind, just exploring options.
I agree. But this 'composure' can only be gained by having more game time. The old chicken & egg conundrum.
I wonder if it's possible that they might know a little more about this sort of thing than you.
I remember when the Arsenal fans said that a couple of years ago too!
So you can tell whether a player is or going to be at 19? This average player came on in Paris against PSG, sorry how many times does that happen for one of the biggest clubs in the world if you are average? Some people come out with another level of stupidity to prove their argument. Your logic is because he's not dont doing what some of the best talent in Europe were/are at the same age, he's average....?
Worked up and throwing insults at people.
then send him on loan
He's been one of our best players at U18 and U23. Not many 19 year olds come on against PSG in the CL? Not a bad start to his Utd Career. If he was your Son, would you think in football terms, he had done nothing to date?
Are we actually being linked to him or what?
Someone said that the times said we're interested but I can't find anything.
Matt Hughes (no idea if he is reliable or not) says we will bid for him in the summer along with Bayern and that Chelsea are currently insisting they won't sell.
I can't think why we wouldn't be interested. His generation of players is one of the most talented England have ever produced and he is close to the top of it. His contract will soon be down to the final 12 months and he seems to want out of Chelsea. I expect a lot of clubs including ourselves will already have sounded his agent out over a move.
To be fair (probably jumping in late), CHO is much better than Chong from what I've seen. Chong looks like a kick and chase merchant who is excelling at youth due to his size. His passing and shooting looks too raw. Just my opinion, though.
They have no problem selling to other PL teams, if he's going to leave on a free or they can get £50m in the summer they'll take the £50m.
He's not even started a game for Chelsea its not like we're trying to sign Hazard.
Lot of time for this post. I hate the assertions that some people have on players when their careers haven't even started.
He's started 7 games for us (18 apps in total). Not a lot but I cant think of any other players who have more (who were 17 years old when the season began).
It’s crazy how childish that got simply because I didn’t know you can’t sign a pre contract with a club in your own country
Nice try Ole, but you're stuck with him.
Yeah sure why not of course you are British. Wonder what you'd think if you were Dutch.
you need to know every rule.
Too much sand as their best player has 1 year contract and their best prospect in same position.
I’m referring to people who are comparing him to Hudson Odoi, who is clearly way ahead of him development wise. Chong is clearly developing at a slower pace, which is obviously fine and takes nothing away from his achievements so far. However, it is ridiculous comparing the 2 at the moment, anyone claiming otherwise need their head checked. They’re the same people who wouldn’t want us to sign Sancho, as it might hinder Chong’s chances.
If we are bidding (as a few reports suggest), then surely we have spoken to CHO's agent and have been given the go ahead.
Would love if we could replace Sanchez and Mata with Sancho and CHO, although I'm not sure if CHO will get more game time at United
CHO is easily the more attainable (and cheaper) out of him and Sancho. I can see us going for him.
They're not. They're desperately trying to get him to sign a new deal iirc.
CHO and Sancho either side of Martial and Rashford.
Make it happen, we need to blitz non top 4 sides so enough with one up top v Burnley at home.
Plus we have tactical flexibility or are able to cover for loss of form with that front 4/3
The only way we sign him is on a free next year. Chelsea won't negotiate with us.
Good player but we should be going for Sancho.
What has nationality got to do with anything? Also, I'm Irish.
Don't see why people are so excited to fill our team with Chelsea and City academy products.
Also very naive to think buying Sancho and CHO would have no impact on the playtime of Rashford Martial and possibly Greenwood in the future.
It doesn't matter what academy a player comes from. If they're good enough to replace who you have then I don't see the problem. Greenwood is a special case but will also be a CF so I'm not worried about his progress if we sign either winger.
Imagine a front three of: Hudson Odoi - Rashford - Sancho
Not only would it be a very exciting, talented, rapid and young trio, but it would also be great for the English national team if they all trained and played together on a daily basis. Kind of a throw back to the old United days when we always went out and bought the biggest british talents.
I would love that.
We need to buy both Sancho and CHO and hope they fulfil their promise. We are seemingly unable to buy the very top players but surely we can recruit the best young English talent at least.
You are such a muppet I admire it.
I would say we need to buy one of them though, and that one will be Sancho for now, because I think CHO will either stay at Chelsea or go abroad.
Shopping at Arsenal is nothing impressive.
Who cares what academy they are from. If they are better than what we have and there's a clear plan for them then get them in.
Bizarre logic. Wouldn't really call Sancho a City product anyway.
Guess we shouldn't sign anyone then...
Best not sign anyone and hope naively that the kids will come good. What could go wrong.
