Di Maria is apparently desperate to come back to Manchester and misses the fans so I expect this deal to be done pretty quickly.
Yeah a couple of years of Ramos would be immense and my dream CB signing but never gonna happen in a million years.Milik-Cavani attacking duo, straight outta Napoli. <3
But actually, Milik is a bit injury-prone and his knees are sensitive. Hysaj would be a good signing, if he'd find his prime form - very good attacking RB and superb crossing.
I'd avoid Alaba because he isn't motivated anymore. I think he is going to City with immense wages.
Ramos would be lethal. The mentality would change drastically and we'd be title contenders. Although, who would take the penalties then?
Unless Utd have a sudden change of heart about Alaba's wage demands then don't see us going in for him, in regards to Depay I think that ship has sailed now but Ramos would be the ultimate free transfer on that list but seems impossibleFrom that list - Depay, Alaba and Ramos would be my top 3. I didn’t bother with Messi, as he looks dead set to city or PSG.
I feel like Depay would thrive in this United team. He unfortunately had the terrible luck of playing for LVG and Mourinho but you’re probably right in that the likelihood of a return is slim to none.Unless Utd have a sudden change of heart about Alaba's wage demands then don't see us going in for him, in regards to Depay I think that ship has sailed now but Ramos would be the ultimate free transfer on that list but seems impossible
They definitely would but seems Utd are sticking to their guns on the Alaba one which is madness because there are players on the payroll who are on far too much who could be shifted to make room for him, in regards to Ramos that is the ultimate CB signing for me but think our hopes went in 2015 and fully expecting him to sign new deal with Real soon.Ramos and Alaba, would improve us immeasurably.
We should seriously be looking at those.
In fairness I would take a 40 year old Ramos because... Ramos
Surely he would never play for us after 9 years with our big city rivalsRamos is the top of the list for me. I don't think he's the best "defender" in the world in terms in defense skills but I highly rate him for his influence on the pitch. he's a warrior and leader. he's a great figure to organize the defense and to hold the team together as a whole. he might be a high class cnut but he's the type you hate when it plays for other teams and you love to have in yours. couple of years in here while we're building our shaky defense would be great.
second choice would Aguero. I know his injury record has been bad lately but I think it'll worth the gamble for one or two season. imagine how much would city and their fans would feel if that gamble pays off and if not then we won't be losing much as a free transfer.
third would alaba as it will help us fill obvious gaps in the team but i'm pretty sure he'd pick the highest bidder which might not be us unfortunately.
the rest of the list are too old, unnecessary or not better than what we already have anyway
Yeah agree on both points sadly.They definitely would but seems Utd are sticking to their guns on the Alaba one which is madness because there are players on the payroll who are on far too much who could be shifted to make room for him, in regards to Ramos that is the ultimate CB signing for me but think our hopes went in 2015 and fully expecting him to sign new deal with Real soon.
Yeah would want us right at the front of the queue if the unthinkable did indeed happen, pity he hasn't got that same desire for a new challenge that Thiago had isn't it.Yeah agree on both points sadly.
Alaba would be awesome for his versatility and seems a player who has a lot of years left in him yet.
I’d love Ramos but agree the ship has sailed. I hope if he does leave Madrid that we make a serious offer to him though.
I think the typical one-year deal with option to extend is probably the right way to go, it minimises the risk.Why are we so determined not to pay him decent wages when we have plenty of underperformers on far too much
He is a top drawer option but try telling United that, apparently we have reservations about signing Upamecano and looking elsewhere but in regards to Konate there doesn't look to be any interest in him at allI think the typical one-year deal with option to extend is probably the right way to go, it minimises the risk.
If United can't somehow get someone like Konate or Upamecano then Alaba is not a bad option at all.
I assume CB is the second position you‘re talking about? He hasn‘t been world class at CB for 2 years. As a Bayern supporter I am by now happy when he has a good/okay match at CB.Alaba would be the perfect signing and is arguably world class in two positions. It’s too bad we’re put off by his wages.
Juventus it is then.Outsider option: Brian Brobbey (young Ajax striker) is also out of contract at the end of this season. He has stated he wants to stay at Ajax mulitple times, but the contract renewal is taking a really long time still.. He has always been rated very high in his youth and has done quite well in the minutes he has gotten so far. Downside: Raiola.
