Sorry, what I meant was - why are we even discussing somebody who plays at a club and league that is nowhere near what we should be considering. Saw a bunch of posts praising him here. Whatever he does in that league is about as relevant as some kids playing nice ball in my neighbourhoodDo you seriously think LuckyScout78 is a legitimate source?
What exactly is a no brainer here? Olsson to United? That would, indeed, be a brainless decision.Bruno Fernandes is probably the best we can hope for but it is not enough. We need more players with football in their brain and in their feet. A player like Lingard desperatly needs shipping, while Matic, Mata and Pogba are all as good as gone and also need replacement. Mctominay is out til the end of season. Pereira is not a central midfielder and badly needs competition. One thing is for sure i do not want to be Fred this spring because he's gonna have to play a lot of serious football to save this team from sinking.
Some of the comments in this thread are from people who need a reality check. United is not a top team anymore and cannot challenge for top players. No player from the top 2 tiers wants to make a transfer to United when they can go to functioning teams all around Europe. And we can't fill the whole bench with players like Chong and Gomes who needs a good loan before we can hope that they learn to apply themselves in senior football.
However we badly need a rehaul. The bench needs to be filled with good smart footballers who approach their prime. It doesn't matter that they are "25 too old". United have come so far down the pecking order that we need players who care about winning, that can provide the starting eleven with at least and aura of competition and that are suited to the modern fast paced football - not 19 year olds that might win the Balon'dor in 5 years.
It's a no brainer if these players are central players in their national team, like Olsson is for Sweden.
Are you him or his agent? He's average and have no business in playing for United.This guy will give United so much good depth to cover the creative options from central midfield. Even with Pogba and Bruno out. Playing beside McTom will still make a really good central midfield partnership.
You don’t find a better allround cm player for the price of 20-25 mill £ in today football market. A Luka Modric kind of cm player.
Adding with Sancho and Chiesa. An example without Pogba and Bruno in the worst case.
Sancho - Olsson - McTom - Chiesa + Rashford/Greenwood - Martial/Rashford
His Krasnodar will play against Russia top team Zenit tonite at 19.30 Pm. About 30 minutes.
Strength the depth and options of cm. Kristoffer Olsson is a really good cm and football player. Fast and skillful as Bruno. Adding Sancho and Chiesa then United will have a really strong squad next sesson.
I was 100 % Bruno was the right player to buy last summer. And i am 100 % sure United shall get Kristoffer Olsson. Special for the price of 20-30 £ mill. Consistent, aggressive and hard working player and performances week in and out. United will not regret if United buy Olsson. A hidden gem in football.
Adding Olsson, Sancho and Chiesa. Then United will be completing the quality of the creative and attacking squad depth. Then only strength the defensive left.
Buy Chiesa to play as left winger,then move Rashford back as CF.
