Above is our team with the 4 key positions that remain unsorted left empty and the hope that Pogba stays. Now we know that there's no way our board will buy Ole starting quality players in 4 different positions and that the budget is likely limited to one big signing, so which position do we plough the big fee into?
CB - Recently Maguire and Lindelof have been playing solidly but many of us feel we need a pacey, athletic CB to partner Maguire long term, of course Axel is still here and we are in talks with Bailly over a new contract. Depth in this position is fine but quality and reliability are question marks.
DM - Matic is past it and the McFred thing can't continue next season if the team is to progress, both are box to box workhorse's who are very mediocre on the ball, neither are holding midfielders that can anchor the team and give Pogba more attacking freedom in the double pivot.
RW - We have an exceptional young talent in Mason who is plying his trade out there as he matures but it's probably not seen as his long term position, and we've got Dan James who is the McFred of wingers and Amad who looks talented but is an unknown quantity.
Striker - it's looking like Cavani will leave and his fitness issues have meant we haven’t gotten much from the signing. That leaves us with Martial who has had a very poor season and Mason who is still learning to play #9 at senior level. The problem with this position is the lack of quality options to sign.
Could we get a poll @Damien @golden_blunder please.
