    Starting to get a little excited with some of the news coming in if true.

    Manchester Evening News.

    In Talks for Tielemans and Wan Bissaka

    We are now the only ones negotiating for Maguire and Fernandes.

    Crazy!

    Not only is that absolutely unrealistic & parking the bus as you’ve got 6 defenders in that team. You also have Lindelof, Ndombele, De Ligt, Umtiti and Fred all out of position! Even though you have explained why, it just looks all completely bonkers with no shape at all.

    To balance the books. Ideally Lindelof should be kept and Smalling should be sold along with Darmian and Rojo.

    Cant understand why we haven't gone for David Brooks at Bournemouth. Fits the OGS model player and we desperately need someone with a football brain creating for us... Perhaps we are waiting to see what happens with some existing players i.e. whether Mata signs a new deal & whether Pogba pushes to leave?

    Might sell:

    Pogba, Lukaku, Darmian, Rojo, Bailly, Jones, Mensah (+ Fellaini already gone). Will probably try to move Sanchez out. Mata and Herrera leaves for free.

    Brings in what? £250-280 mill.

    Will buy:

    1. Maguire - £80 mill
    2. Diop - £70 mill
    3. AWB - £50 mill
    4. Longstaff - £40 mill (will not go for £25 mill)
    5. Rabiot (free)
    6. Bruno Fernandes - £60 mill
    7. Pepe/Brooks - £60/50 mill
    8. Pedro/Haller - £25/45 mill

    + Daniel James £15 mill

    Approx £420 mill.
    Ten out. Nine in.
    Net? £140 mill - £170 mill.

    Could it happen? Probably not. I’m not sure we will bring in any of these names to be honest (maybe with the exception of AWB).

    But I could see us buying two-three central midfielders if Pogba leave. Three if we buy a player like Longstaff. I would guess that we will buy a #10 similar to Bruno and an #8. Compared to Herrera and Pogba I would assume OGS would prefer two «complete» midfielders, both very adept at defending and attacking. Bruno Fernandes fits that bill as a 10. Rabiot, Ndombele and Lo Celso does as an #8. Maybe even Longstaff.

    We will buy a central defender and I would not be surprised if we ship out a few and bring in two.

    Furthermore, we should bring in a right winger and a center forward if Lukaku leaves.

    Maybe its not likely at all that we will bring in more than five players, like Ole said at one point of the season. But if we sell Pogba, Lukaku and Sanchez, combined with Herrera and Mata leaving, we will have to make several transfers. OGS did not predict Pogba leaving when he talked about bringing in five players. Probably not Lukaku either. And he probably did not predict how the season would pan out.

    Considering some of the players leaving are on high salaries we will probably have resources to do something significant too. It could also be in the managements interest to support OGS as he is a cheap (and popular) manager. Hell, it would also give him much needed credibility and «power» (reduced «player power»).

    Its all paper talk they have nothing to report as no one has bought anyone of significance yet therefore the press do what they usually for and make up stories to try and sell papers as they do at this time every year

    Straight from the horse's mouth. Pogba wants out. This has the potential to be our worst summer ever.

    It also has the potential to be exactly what we need. We’re not challenging next year whether we have Pogba or not. It’s time to rebuild around a clear identity of how we want Manchester United to play. Take the money for Pogba, De Gea and Lukaku, add it to the 240m already available and build a young, exciting team with the potential of challenging in three seasons. Everyone is banging on about how we need to overhaul the squad...well it looks like that’s exactly what we’re going to do. If we promote Greenwood, Garner, Gomes and Tuanzebe next season then I could see us having 11/12 new players. Exactly what was needed...provided we get the signings right.

    What has our recruitment in the last 6 years done to warrant this amount of faith?

    I think we should maybe take the opportunity to take players plus cash for Pogba transfer from that club. If we get full out fee, other clubs know we will be desperate for one of their players and we will get fleeced. Look at the fees being quoted for AWB and Maguire, joke.

    We only have until August 9th, my fear is knowing how bad our club is run, we will panic and end up with Gareth Bale, who looks like he doesn't give a shit about playing football.

    I love the transfer muppet that say we can sell our deadwood. Why are they still at this club? Because no one in their right mind will offer us £20m for Phil Jones. He’s probably earning twice what he could get from another club.

    No one wants the shite in our squad and players don’t want to leave because of their ridiculous salaries. Hence we can’t shift them.

    Probably been said before but we can use Pogba funds to purchase a number of quality options for the midfield.

    Longstaff at £30m
    Fernandes at £60m
    Maddison at £60m
    Rabiot at Free (circus risk).

    That as a diamond could really work.

    Hey, after selling Pogba we will have a lot of chips for rebuilding. Already have after two quiet windows. I hope we will get players who wants to play for United. There are talented players available. If everything goes well, we could have very interesting team for next season. Why not better team what we had last season which finished 6th?

    That would involve a football structure at the club making strategic decisions.....something we don’t have. Secondly, we have owners who are fond of keeping money. The concern most have is we will not reinvest adequately - and it’s more than a valid concern.

    Im quite sure we will reinvest easily over 150 million (or even over 200M) this summer if Pogba leaves. 4-6 players are coming in. Slow start but this will be busy summer.

    e. Minimum is two midfielders and one defender. And actually we will need CB and RB both. My guess is that this will be record breaking summer for United.

    I'm trying to find positives... If there's an exodus of our key players DDG, Herrera, Pogba, Lukaku surely the Glazers will remove the incompetents: Woodward, Judge, scouts etc right??

    Doubt it - if we sell DDG for £50m, Pogba for £120m, Lukaku for £65m and only reinvest circa £150m on 4 players (James £15m, AWB £50m and the balance on two midfielders- one ready made, one younger player) then promote academy players to fill the gaps in the squad to still be in the same competitive position they will all be laughing to the bank.

    My guess is they are banking on other players (Rashford, Martial, Lingard and McTominay + a new midfielder) stepping up in the production, and the overall cohesion resulting in an overall better season than the last one. If it works we may be in a position to get better quality recruits next year, if not they made money on transfers (and didn't have to spend any of this year's budget), at least.

    Lukaku leaving now for a decent fee is better than selling him for cheap next season.
    One less year left on Sanchez and others contracts.
    If PP leaves, then less contact with Raiola.

    Sell Pogba. Get coleso in from betis, bruno and youri while get maguire and awb as cb and rb respectively. If lukaku left, get Haller in. Finally, get a CDM (Rodri,Ndidi)

    Henderson
    AWB----- Lindelof------ Maguire/ Deligt---- Shaw
    ---------------------Rodri/Ndidi------------------------------
    ---------- Coleso/Fred/Youri ------ Youri/Coleso/McT
    --------bruno/coleso/Mata
    Rashford/Greenwood/Lingard---------Tony/Rashford/Haller

    With Pogba leaving we are going to have to make 6 signings excluding. Rb, cb, 3 cm's and an attacker whether lukaku stays or goes.

    RB AWB
    CB Maguire
    Cdm Neves/Ndidi or someone who mashes those 2s abilities. A Cdm who excels at winning possession and also good at initiating attacks from deep
    CM Rabiot
    CM Tielemans/Bruno/Maddison
    If we go for a striker Haller/ if we get a winger Pepe.

    For all these players Manchester united is a big step up. Wouldn't be disappointed about where they are but would relish the chance to show what they got. They all still have room to improve too.

    We're buying Angelino back from PSV for 12m yoyo's, I'll be delighted if we are, apparently PSG wanted him for £25m

    no idea, but Zinchenco played DM for Ukraine a few weeks ago, I think no one trusts Mendy so Angelino is a relatively cheap option who will also class as HG and Club Trained

    If we end up with Shaw and AWB as our fullbacks, PP goes, and Rashford Martial + new signing are the ones up front, then the new midfield would need to create a lot of chances and score a number of goals.

    Andy Goldstein on Talkshite last night claimed he had a source, that had been reliable in the past, had told him that we’re after a player that none of the papers had mentioned yet, I think he said it was an arsenal player, I’d turned off before he revealed it, anyone hear who it was?

    Interesting. I wanted us to sign Auba since he was in Dortmund but wasn't sure if he'd be as awesome after seeing him at Arsenal. However now with Ole he might be exactly the kind of striker we need.

    So disappointed that we've kept Mata when we should have released him. Unbelievable that we may have signed him up for more than a year.
