9 players for essentially 3 positions... seems unrealistic especially in the current financial climateMartial plays either as a striker or as a LW. Now According to transfer rumours we're aiming to get Graelish, Sancho and a striker (Dembele?). Meanwhile we'll get rid of Lingard and Periera while Sanchez will return to the fold.
Graelish is more comfortable as a LW, Sancho as a RW (although he can play on the LW) and Dembele plays as a striker. That means we'll have
LW: Rashford (FIRST TEAMER), Graelish, Sanchez, James and Martial + Sancho can play there.
STK: Dembele (FIRST TEAMER), Greenwood, Sanchez and Martial
RW: Sancho (FIRST TEAMER), James, Chong, Sanchez.
Graelish and Rashford are better then Martial on the LW while Dembele is better then Martial upfront. Will Martial accept a reserve role? I doubt it.
Spending what 200m on Sancho, Dembele, Graelish and then perhaps another half a million a week in wages plus another 350k on sanchos wages?
in the current financial environment Id be shocked if we did that
Doubt anybody will take sanchez off our hands so next season I think we have
Rashford, Greenwood, Martial, Sanchez, James, Chong already - perhaps we buy one player on top of that
