Course they have to be considered, have to fit in to the way of playing but not sure where this thing in England has come from where you can only have one top class player in each position, look at the top sides in Europe:His point is fair one. Usually you don't see a team with many ''equal options'. There tends to be a pecking order and a composition based on age, reputation etc. For example Mata works as a squad player because he's of a certain age. Lingard works as a squad player because his reputation is not that high.
So if we sign, let's say, Haaland and Sancho we'd have the following young stars who would all want and possibly expect to start
Now if Halaand is genuinely top striker material (in a few years) I would sign him regardless in the hope that either he or James would accept being second choice/rotational for a year or two. But I think the point that these things have to be considered is correct.
City: Aguero, Jesus, Sane, Sterling, Mahrez, Bernardo
Barca: Suarez, Dembele, Messi, Griezman, Fati (and they want to sign Neymar)
Madrid: Hazard, Benzema, Bale, Junior Vic, Rodrygo, Vazquez
Munich: Lewandowski, Gnabry, Muller, Coman, Perisic, Coutinho, Robben, Arp
PSG: Icardi, Cavani, Neymar, Di Maria, Mbappe
Only side doing well without massive options are Liverpool as they are jammy as hell with injuries.
Why do United fans find it so hard to understand that you need more than one option up front? Look at Bournemouth away, Martial/Rashford not working we had no other options but a just turned 18 year old kid.
