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.
