    Links to Thiago. I think he would fit well in our Midfield with Sarri’s system, particularly if we hang onto Hazard and Willian.
  2. Transfer Talk Topic

    It's not, though. United's net spend over the past three years must be what? Half a billion? A few hundred million in the three or four seasons before that? For a club of United's size, history and stature, spending that amount and coming out of it with a League Cup and a Europa League is a poor result. (and fwiw, I like Jose and rate him as our best ever manager)
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    No, mate, you don't have to hate someone to recognise their flaws and their failings.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    You don't have to hate Jose Mourinho to point out that he's underperformed at United and has behaved like a petulant brat. Hell, he was a petulant brat when he managed us, though he was our petulant brat.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Two aging wingers on lucrative contracts that will be nothing but a burden to the club in a couple of seasons and a tank in the middle. Sounds like a Mourinho wet dream.
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Pulisic in impressive form last season and is looking up for it in pre-season. A good, young option to replace Willian if he goes?
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    I don't think it's fanciful at all. Milan have budget issues, Reina is a very good, cost effective short term option, Donarumma will fetch them a good fee. I can see it happening. Would be a great signing on our part.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    Do you know who I think would be a good fit for the Hamsik role in Sarri’s system here? Oscar
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Talk of Barcelona offering Ousmane Dembele + Cash for Hazard. Depending on the sum of cash, that would be tempting.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Donarumma (1st choice), Cech (2nd choice/mentor) would be the ideal IMO.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    Italian media saying our next choice after Alisson is Donarumma. My first choice tbh. Enormous potential and longevity.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think if Rugani is coming in and starts, Zappacosta also starts. As stated it's a coin toss between Zappacosta and Moses, but I think Rugani will communicate better with Zappacosta and settle better as a result. I can see this being the plan knowing roughly how Sarri sets up: -----------------------------Courtois--------------------------- Zappacosta----Rugani------Azpilicueta---Alonso ---------------------------Jorginho---------------------------- --------------------Kante----------Fabregas------------- ----Willian--------------------------------------------Hazard ----------------------------Morata----------------------------- Of those positions, I think we could look to build on Fabregas and Morata's places in the team - we have options in both positions, but there are probably improvements available. That third Midfield spot in particular would be better in the hands of a box-to-box type of player - RLC/Barkley can do this, but are they good enough?
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    I wouldn’t necessarily be hugely against selling Hazard, but we need a very big fee and need replacements lined up - I would demand Asensio and a substantial amount of cash myself.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Here's a radical thought (filled with very wishful thinking) - what if we demanded Asensio as part of the deal for Hazard - say £70 Million + Asensio, signed Dembele (Barcelona) to replace Willian and then use the change to get Martial. That'd be us sorted for the future. It'd inevitably hurt us short term, but long term we could be better off, with a really good, dynamic front three. Could also replace Courtois with 19 year old Donarumma, again making a profit. So, lets say.. ----------------------------Donarumma----------------------- Azpilicueta (C)----Rudiger---Christensen---Alonso ---------------------Jorginho------Kante--------------------- ----Dembele--------------Asensio--------------Martial-- ---------------------------------Morata---------------------------
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    Jorginho, Higuain, Rugani and Golovin.. Would that be a good window? I would say that's dependent on who we sell to pay for it.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    Sign Donarumma or Oblak and I certainly won’t lose any sleep about selling Courtois. Alisson I’m really not sure about.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    It's partly the position he plays - very, very rare that wingers continue to perform into their 30s - can only really think of a couple and one of them has really adapted to be more of an inside forward. Willian will only have one or two more seasons at the level we're used to, so why not cash in reinvest in a more long term option? In the age of FFP we have to be shrewd. As has been pointed out, the difficult part will be identifying the right options long term in the absence of a DofF or any real coherent structure to the club.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    £60m for Willian? Not ideal to sell him to the Mancs, but at Willian's age, that is a superb fee that we can reinvest in a more long term option - Martial for example.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    What exactly are our board doing? No news on manager, no news on structure/DoF, no sign of new players. We're at a cross roads at the moment and it's vital we get this right.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Pastore to West Ham for £17.5 Million... Surely that's the sort of deal we should be looking at?
  21. New Stadium Plans

    CapCo's Earls Court development seems dead in the water, and a lot of speculation they plan on selling of the site as the value has plummeted. Putting two and two together, but could it be the board is keeping an eye on Earls Court as a more viable development option?
  22. New Stadium Plans

    Have you got a link for the temporary visa thing? Can't see it anywhere
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Quite concerning that. Wouldn’t be surprised to see us put up for sale if the visa doesn’t materialise... I just hope it doesn’t get nasty and he doesn’t convert his shares back to debt and call in his loans. That’ll be curtains for us- unthinkable.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    When I watched a couple of seasons back, the four key players in that Monaco team were fairly obviously Silva, Mbappe, Fabinho and Lemar. Fabinho would be useful in a sense he is a defensive minded player, former full-back, good with the ball at his feet but will run all day. I think he’ll do well at Liverpool.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Fabinho to Liverpool. Could have been a useful signing for us.
