I have no idea if we or somebody else is interested but Kristoffer Olsson is a really good player. .

Positive and a humble character. Top pro. Always 100% committed. His first touch is very good.(to be Scandinavian) Often one or two steps ahead in his mind when he receives the ball, excellent vision and a good passer. Kristoffer is intelligent and honest in his approach. A team player. Often a producer of 7/10 or 8/10 games. He’s not a stand out player but when he‘s not playing you often miss his presence.

There are some question marks regarding his physicality and speed but he‘s doing very well playing with Sweden. It’s hard to predict how he would cope with the PL but he’s doing ok in Russia.

Whoever buys him gets value for money. Last thing. He’s nothing like Lindelof who‘ s soft and insecure when the heat is on. This guy has more power in his mindset.

Do you seriously think LuckyScout78 is a legitimate source?
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 neighbourhood

Because LuckyScout bought him on the FootballIndex and stands to make a few quick if he moves here.

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.

What exactly is a no brainer here? Olsson to United? That would, indeed, be a brainless decision.

I'm not sure why this thread is even alive (although @ivaldo might be onto something), but Olsson will never consistently play for a club even remotely close to United. He's not even been one of the best players at Krasnodar and the only reason he plays in the Swedish national team is because of a very lacklustre competition - all of his challengers being limited, defensive midfielders aside from 34-year-old Seb Larsson who's being employed as a winger instead. It is by far Sweden's weakest position.

Kristoffer Olsson will join a top 4/6 club in the biggest leagues after Euro 2020. If he hit his max level during the 3 three matches. Then he will catch the attention and eyes of the biggest clubs out there.

From transfer value of 4 mill Euro. Unknown right now. But i m sure the transfer value will rise at least 4/5 times more after Euro 2020 and more competition to get him.

United are so desperate and in need for a cm who can play both as nr8/6. This guy can do it both. Top composure on the ball and hard working. Good for United rest of the season and depth for the next season.

United youngster need a composure, skillful and creative cm behind them. Feed them the ball/passes and lead them. Olsson has play a big part to lead Sweden without Zlatan now. Ready and good enough to lead a sinking United ship. 10/11 days left.

Bruno, Federico Chiesa, Kristoffer Olsson and Jude Bellingham...Then United future will look really bright.
