I would murder for Saul but there's no way this is happening.

Don't really believe Times anymore. They stated Jose Mourinho would have 4-5 new signings at the start of last season.

Was probably the plan to be honest, but I also don't believe them. In fairness we had 3 was it?

Dalot and Fred?

They suggested more and higher profile names IIRC. I don't think it was ever in the works though. None of Jose's requested signings were passed bar Fred it seems - and he was a spillover from a January chase.

We had one over-priced squad player, a youth player and 3rd GK. Quite possibly the worst window in recent history.

On topic: He'd be my #1 midfielder to sign. But like the rest say, it's super unlikely.

We'll probably use the cash from Pogbas sale
If we sell Pogba we likely need 2 more midfielders with Saul.

If we keep Pogba I think we need 2 midfielders anyway, which makes it even less likely that we'd spend over 100m on this guy and even if we did I strongly doubt he'd come.

Hmm would make sense then
It's going to hilariously watching him get slaughtered by our fanbase and the media next.

For being more expensive than Pogba but producing less or something along those lines.

I like him and think we should buy him and play him and I think he will make us a better team and help us win the league again.

Every year a rumour like this comes up, and you just know it's never ever going to happen.

He would laugh in our face.

When you agree a fee on FM and the agent tells you the player isn't even interesting in hearing the numbers :lol:

Just want to see Scholes hit a volley.
Hate such articles because you know its not going to happen yet there's a part of you that goes "but what if ugh, emotionally damaging. We should just sign our players now and early! I don't want a season of this.
