This is awful news for us. Now we are desperate in midfield and attack.
This place can't be helped at times. We needed a forward in the summer already. Now it's just getting ridiculous.No we don't. I thought we did but I've been convinced by hundreds of well written posts in the Haaland thread that signing another forward would block Martial's, Rashford's and Greenwood's development.
That isn't much of a test. They know they can get over £120m for him in the summer. I can't see them selling this window at all as they know they can get just as much in summer for him as they can this window, and with the form he is in, he is crucial to them qualifying for the next stage of the Champions League.Like it or not Woodward needs to spend big money or we can forget this season being anything other than another write off, test Dortmund with £100 million for Sancho and keep pushing as I think they’d sell in January if the offer is right and I think if told he’d be one of our main players Sancho would come.
I would go along with this right now, Probably about as good as we can get without being completely mugged off though I wouldnt hold my breath with dumb and dumber in charge of negotiations. Probably wont happen though as we know Woodward and judge need a whole month to make a single signing.Said it elsewhere but Cavani would be a perfect fix imo.
Doesn’t suit his style of play at all, and is also rubbish. We’d be no worse off playing Matic up front.OGS on 5 live just said they'll be looking at loans or short term deals for new striker so think Giroud will massively come into your consideration with him available from Chelsea.
Signing another forward would only upset Martial, stifle Greenwood, annoy James, vex Rashford, wind up Lingard, ruffle Mata's feathers, piss on Fred's chips, disgruntle Shaw and put a hitch in McTominay's giddy up. It would be both negligent and insane for us to sign players when we already have players. The Haaland thread taught me this.
No brainer to get Cavani for us. We have young strikers around and could need some experience up top.Hwang for me and if Cavani is rumoured to be only 10m then should be in for him as well
