As much as I hate we could be buying another CB, the lad looks like a tank and hopefully will be able to stay fit.
Similar style to Steve bruce's "Striker!"Ghostwriter?
Yeah, I only meant it pains me that we're having to buy another one, when money should have been spent enough there already.I have no qualms about buying yet another CB as long as at least 2-3 of our current lot are gone.
Rojo and Smalling on a permanent and Bailly or Jones - that would be fine if we are aiming to buy a new CB again. I'm quite glad in one respect that our coaches can see (if this is true) that Lindelöf and Maguire isn't a good enough partnership.
Could be many reasons. We may have already agreed in principle to that, he may feel like he owes Real a bit more, so they could be negotiating a slightly higher release clause. He may not be our first choice.So why wouldn’t we activate the clause right now and agree terms for a summer switch?
If you were going with that we would leak goals like a sieve. We need a better CDM than Fred, I wouldn't even regard Fred as an out-an-out CDM.As much as I'd like a CB, if we bought Grealish, Sancho and a striker I'd be really happy.
I'd love Ndidi, but can't have everything!
FredPogba is as good as gone in my eyes, so I guess the sale of him will go towards funding this
Grealish - Bruno
Sancho - Striker - Rashford
My point is that when top teams come for a player the player chooses where to go and we are far away from being favorites at the moment.Yeah we saw with United pulling out of the Dybala deal that top players won't come here. Makes perfect sense.
I don't think anyone expects us to get top 4 now. Either this is all paper talk or we know sancho is interested in coming even without CL football next season.Sancho would add a lot of quality to our starting 11, just hope we can somehow scrape top 4 and convince him to come.
I think most top clubs in Europe would take him for £100m.I actually think we'll get him.
I just can't see any other clubs dropping £100m, or they have other areas to improve.
I also envision the Pogba saga to turn into a nasty affair if nobody meets our valuation (Madrid have already starting murmuring about the price tag)
With Ziyech looking like he’s going to Chelsea plus the glaring fact they need a new striker, I can’t see Chelsea spunking over £100M on another winger.I think most top clubs in Europe would take him for £100m.
I personally can’t see it happening, he’s more likely to join Chelsea than us if they do set their sights on him in the summer.
Not sure he’s what they need right now. They’re in a similar position as us re a goal scorer. They badly need onePlease don't be true.
Would suck if we spent the entire summer chasing Sancho, and fail.
While Chelsea wrap up this fella in February for about a third of the price
People were arrogant enough to think that we'd have a clear run at him because we're so desperate for a RW and others are not, but of course it doesn't work like that. What did we expect? that Bayern, Liverpool, City, etc, wouldn't be in for him?Of course they are, every big club is going to be after him...
