Kane would be a great signing not sure about Rice and Mount. You can get Caicedo instead of Rice, he’s miles better. And he’ll probably cost the same as well.

It's arguable that he is even better than Rice let alone miles better that's hyperbole , but he is younger so who knows in future that could very well be the case but certainly not currently .

:lol: Zero chance we're signing Kane, Rice and Mount in one window. That's well over £200m right there.

There is absolutely no way we sign 3 expensive English players this summer.

If the plan is to sell Henderson, Maguire, McTominay, AWB, Williams, etc then we will need English players for CL home grown rules.
We will obviously have to fulfill those requirements, but I cannot see us spending big on a load of English players with the recent luck we've had with them.

Why??

Keep them both. They are far from perfect but not a priority IF we get the other signings right
Who knows what is going on in the back ground. If both AWB and Dalot are happy with their lot and are model professionals outside of match day both may well keep. AWB specialising in one on ones is definitely as asset when building winning match day teams.

I would rather we picked up two of the best u 21 players from South America every summer from now on. Outrageous value. We have some leaders now. We just need the requisite energy skill and enthusiasm around them the likes of Alvarez Enzo and Caciedo would be starting and starring here by now.

Where would we get this money? With no takeover agreed, FFP regulations and the Glazers being unlikely to spend much anyway with the club being sold eventually I can't see us spending much at all.
We will get taken over and sell 100 million worth of players most probably. 300-400 million is pretty plausible.

And not a whole lot of good value in that spend either.
Kane and Rice would improve us considerably but yeah serious question marks over whether or not Mount is good enough plus Caicedo is arguably a cheaper, better alternative to Rice.

Caicedo doesn't have as much to his game as Rice. I think Rice could play as a 6 or 8.

Caicedo can play right back, meaning he can move into midfield from RB. That’s what seems to be the new trend nowadays.

400 million :lol::lol:
How much did we spend last summer?

With new owners, we will spend more than that, hence 300-400 million.

Kane and Rice/MacAllister is 150-200 ish, more for Rice. Kim Min Jae is another 45 Million. That's already 200-250 million. If we're also looking at players like Mount/Frimpong/New GK then it will be more than 300.

Elanga likely leaving too now that Rangnick is gone. We'd be down to about 5 or 6 home grown players and we need 8. Hannibal and Mainoo could take up a slot each, but will they stay or be loaned out is the question.

You must be a Chelsea fan then.
Well if you believe the noise coming out about us having just a 100m summer budget, I think we can do little worse than 50m on Mount + Kovacic. Of course I would prefer we go for better and younger players, but we will probably have to spend big on a striker and a GK. A midfielder like Kovacic would actually be a good profile to add to our midfield - someone who can carry the ball decently. I would also prefer if Mejbri and Mainoo can step up to take Fred’s/McT’s minutes but I don’t think either of them are at the required level.


They’d be an okay upgrade on McFred, but just ok. I’m not seeing them push us on, more just a mild improvement to the squad strength. I couldn’t see either of them displacing Case or Eriksen. We could do with a midfield signing who’s a clear upgrade on Eriksen.
Agreed. Would be underwhelming, but if the 100m summer budget is accurate, then we will need to spend extra wisely. At least Mount + Kovacic have decent league experience, I’m unsure how midfield signings from foreign leagues would fair. Do we then go for another loan signing like Sabitzer to patch a hole? Unfortunately I do not think Mejbri and Mainoo are at the required level yet, most they could do are cup games which is not good enough. I would be delighted if EtH thinks otherwise and if he uses them. If not it would be like Iqbal staying with us all season without getting any serious minutes.

Nah Caicedo's great but Rice is better right now. Rice would be amazing for us

You'd be underwhelmed by a top-5 striker in the world and two of the best young midfielders in the league? What would whelm you?
Kane is a massive upgrade but what does Mount bring to this team? Also Rice is 100m, for that money you'd think Caicedo is better value. I'd rather we go for Rabiot, have Eriksen as the 10 backup and spend that Mount money on Kim. +-50m for an average player on a 1 year deal is disgusting and unnecessary.

I don’t really believe our budget is that amount. Just a sign we have learned from past mistakes by Ed “loadsamoney” Woodward.

Disagree. I think caicedo is a far better all rounder. The stats back this up as does the eye test. Cheaper better younger. What’s not to like?

Is he, though? How much less would he cost, 20 million? As a direct Casemiro replacement he might make more sense but the next few years, with Casemiro still starting, we need a good passer next to him, and Rice is a better pssser than Caicedo.

I would say every aspect of his game is currently better
