    I'd much rather Longstaff, at least he has potential. Lemina has failed in his last two clubs and has very little upside

    Bruno Fernandes, then Longstaff, then Savic and now Lemina. Wonder who we'll be preparing to sign tomorrow.

    No worries, I think I remember that as well!

    Yeah, I think the only worry for me with him is the injuries. Otherwise for 18m, I think he’ll be a good signing.

    Barella is definitive a top 4 cm player in every top league. The boy is really brave, not the biggest boy. But goes into tackle like crazy. And still really good as a cm playmaker. The boy has the top drive and guts.

    Netherlands and Italy have been down for sone years. Look like they are slowly coming back. With a more promising generation.

    Netherlands with De Jong, De Ligt and more.

    Italy with Barella, Federico Chiesa and more.

    They are coming.

    Southampton fan and Season Ticket Holder here.

    Lemina puts in a good performance about 1 in every 6 games.

    But that 1 game he's unplayable. It just doesn't happen often enough.

    Pogba and Lemina attitude wise are the same as each other and apparently they are both good mates.

    So make of that what you will.

    At £15M, he's worth a punt to a club like United as it's small change, he's too much of a luxury player for us,he got injured then he couldn't get back in the team under Hasenhuttl, this is at a time when we NEEDED wins.

    £15M-£20M he's worth a punt, I'd be happy to let him go for that, but with a sell on Clause just in case he does something and with better players around him he MIGHT.

    For a club like United, he's a squad player at best and I don't think he's what you need.

    I wouldn't read too much into that Video clip on his Instagram, another player we're trying to offload (Elyounoussi) looked the dogs nuts too in a heavily edited and speeded up video reel. Those snaps look good but what they don't show is the amount of times he loses the ball.

    As good as off to Inter.

    Lemina lacks consistency and his injury issues dont help either. I dont think we need squad players, i think we need starters at this point. Barella for example would be one

    Sounds more like an Arsenal signing .. They need someone to replace Ramsey.

    I think you are having a different conversation mate, stop trying to make an argument where there isn't one.

    Playing 41 games in the league and playing very well, which he has, is being premier league proven, a lot more so than Fred.

    Move on

    How do you know that's true? From my understanding he hasn't been out with a knee injury?

    You're right we don't need just anyone but I'd say he is an upgrade on all of those players without being anything special, so at 15-20M with us so short of quality midfield options I'd take him. I'd hope he wouldn't be our only midfield signing though.

    What would you consider to be the right strategy? Spending £50-60M on midfielders from Holland or Portugal? Fred was very highly rated and look what happened there.

    He looks like poor man's Pogba just more dynamic :eek: For that fee we can't go wrong. In the worst scenario he'll end up cleaning Ole's boots.

    Think McTominay is better than Lemina, who cannot defend for his life.

    The reason he was let go by Juventus. Although, the last injury was an Abdominal injury that ruled him out for 4 months.

    I would take him if he isn't our only signing however; looking at quotes from him in the last few days, he wants to play regularly at a bigger club?

    He is a DM so then we will have Scott, Matic and Lemina as a DM options? Whilst Fred can also play there. I am concerned the type of player we are signing because we need a box to box.

    I would sign someone like a Callebos from madrid who is a good passer.

    "Okay" – yep, that sums up the direction of the club. 6th to 10th in the coming season.

    With a budget of 100 million you can only aim at them or some championship player

    What you going to revisit? If Lemina signs (and that's a big if) it won't be replacing Pogba.

    I don't get your point. Totally different players.

    Looks like one of these strange links that gets a lot of coverage and then disappears very quickly.

    Agree with you (irregardless of the white text). He’s currently better than the Matic, Fred, Pereira, Scott we saw last season. For a small fee, worth a shot. Especially since it doesn’t look like Fernandes is coming.

    I just wouldn't be surprised if we end up only signing Lemina for midfield with Pogba either being sold or remaining but barely bothering to play.

    Never going to happen. He's the one source of creativity we have in midfield. If he leaves it won't be for a ball winning midfielder which Lemina essentially is.

    Don't even think we will sign Lemina anyway.
