    Where do all those names come from? I would be all for trying to get some more unknown players and hope we found the next Kante but it is also a big gamble to build on that idea given our current situation.

    In hindsight it would've made a lot of sense signing this guy in the summer, he's had a bright start to the season. Could've slotted into the side at no.10 or on the right :rolleyes:

    I saw him in 2 matches against Rosenborg - he was good but not great. And he didn't in any way stand out. Of course that was only 2 games, but he didn't look anywhere near ready for the P.L based on that!

    Some people fail to understand that we're weak both in first team and in terms of quality strength in depth. I mean look at our RW.....Mata, Jesse, FFS we might as well not play a RW at all. If Olmo has the potential to be a United top player then we should had signed him. If he failed to do that, then tough luck, we'll use him as a cover for Sancho or Brooks. We'll still need that irrespectively

    That's my thought exactly, at worst he becomes a good squad player in two positions we're starved of quality.

    He was clearly priced out of a move by Dinamo. No ones paying what they want (not sure I believe they want 40m euros, but you never know), he even said it himself last month.

    Dinamo is in CL so his price will go up. He'll definitely get sold in the summer, maybe even in January depending on the results.

    Wow. I’m very surprised no one took the plunge at that price.

    I am too. But thats my guess, lots of sources said the different prices. Saying all that here all expected him to leave. As a Dinamo fan I'm glad he stayed he'll certainly help the team in the CL.

    What? Dinamo expected at least 30 mil euros for him, that's why no one took chance with him. If his price was 15 mil he would be out of Dinamo long time ago.

    About thirty million seemed to be the general number.

    I like the look at Dani Olmo. But I was also wondering what does the caf think about Fabian Ruiz from Napoli. He looks really talented but is extremely underrated.

    Well we're complete shit so yeah, I'd take both. While we're on Serie A, Chiesa from Fiorentina although not under the radar is another hugely obvious Serie A talent that would be amazing for us, we (naively imo) must think we're going to be able to nab Sancho I guess. What could possibly go wrong :wenger:

    He's just not the type of signing we make but I thought the same for Fred tbf coming from Ukraine.
