If they are willing to sacrifice Odegaard and Pogba wants to go, I’d make that deal. In the most ideal world, I’d get Odegaard regardless and play him with Pogba in a 3. He’s hard working off the ball, and brilliant on it. With a proper energetic DM behind them, the team can dominate the midfield area in every aspect of the game.
So we only need to buy a Kante level player to make that work.

I think we should plan our midfield with players that compliment McTominay.

I see the Longstaff talk has started again with some fans. I pray like last window it doesn't happen and in any other subsequent window to boot.

Wait, people still don't rate McTominay?

Are they blind?

We need two midfielders to play with him.
Exactly. He’s a rising star, he’s going to be a monster of a b2b CM. Anyone with eyes should be able to see that he’s already a key player, someone with the inner drive and a future captain.

I think if we had a midfield good enough to win the title, he would only make the bench

At times you wonder whether these people actually watch our games or not.
And i wonder if people have forgotten what it takes to actually win the league. Hes got talent but i'd say he would be a squad option at liverpool or city, not a guaranteed starter at all.

Can someone please fix it so quoting tweets doesn't keep making it appear as a new tweet on the alerts bar?

I'm guessing they don't essentially need to push for him in January as reinforcing midfield and back up striker are bigger priorities.
Agree that we should be going for striker and midfielders in January.

It mentions about Sancho in January but not about striker and midfielders in January. This could just be cleverly worded to make it seem as if we are in for striker and midfielders in January when we are not until the summer.

McTominay has been just as good as Jordan Henderson or Wijnaldum and they may be 1st XI players in a title winning team. He’s also still pretty young at 23 so could be great at 26-28.

Do we really need Sancho for a £100 million price ? It just feels too expensive.

Depending on the money available - I would try to get the following players in

Haaland - and if we can't get him, sign Jarrod Bowen who is available for pocket change.

In midfield Sander Berge will be available for less than £40 million. And I wouldn't mind Grealish to be honest but I doubt Villa will let him go.

Those are the rates. He’s a world class talent, and will develop into the top 3 PL players I reckon either here or at a rival.

I know it is - but with James performing as well as he has - I can't really justify spending £100 m on Sancho when we have other positions we need improvment more. Don't get me wrong - he is a brilliant player, and I would love to have him....but...a winger isn't what our main priority should be.

With Sancho, you will most likely get the money back with lots of sales, kinda like Juve did with CR7.

Just because we sign Sancho doesn’t mean he is our main priority either.

That's not actually a thing. Juventus don't get paid for the number of shirts sold in a kit deal, not would there be £100m+ worth of shirts with his name on them sold either.

He's already better than Henderson and he's 23. Have a word with yourself.

But that is what been reported by Juve, that they made the money back very quickly on his merch... reported in newspapers so you know, they like to add some color.

I disagree. Right winger has been our weak position for many years. We need a quality right winger asap.

They don't. They want someone with a higher FIFA rating.
Get over yourself. It’s not some footballing consensus that Scott McTominay is a top class midfielder or something, people are more than entitled to see things differently. And he isn’t better than Henderson, and certainly not Wijnaldum either.

Of course he is. In almost every thing that matters:
  • More goals
  • More shots per game.
  • Better passing.
  • Far better defending. More tackles, interceptions, clearances and blocks
  • More "dribbles", or rather: taking the ball forward.
Henderson's ball control is better and he's harder to dispossess than Scott; but Scott plays a faster paced game.

McTominay isn’t a better passer than Henderson.

Better passing? What the heck?
