One Manchester United fan suggests four realistic signings to improve their starting lineup, while Chelsea supporters wonder how they can replace Eden Hazard – all in Your Says of the Day.
So the transfer window is now officially open and with it comes United linked to over a hundred players with values ranging from free transfers to 250m. Obviously 95% of those won’t happen but there are a couple which definitely will. The question is – who are we actually likely to get this summer? And who will we realistically keep hold of? I think we might see the following first team next year:
Wan-Bissaka – Lindelof – Maguire – Shaw
Fred – Pogba – Rice
Sancho – Rashford – Martial
Wan-Bissaka – 40m
Maguire – 50m
Rice – 50m
Sancho – 100m
Think we will hold on to both De Gea and Pogba but not sure if we will get the signings we want and may have to go for our more “2nd choice” options without CL.
Would love to see Varane or Umtiti instead of Maguire and Dybala brought in to replace Lukaku to add on to the above but doubt those two will go through.
One player I definitely hope we stay away from is Griezmann, has been a shadow of the player he was 2 years ago.
I’m also warming up to the idea of having Bale PURELY ON LOAN if the fee is 5m as is being suggested.
Sympathy for the Devils
Yeah but Bale is a left winger, where will Joel Glazer’s ‘Pele’ Martial play if we get him?
@killyboye – think Bale can fill in on either wing (even RW cutting in which I believe is where Real Madrid play him most of the time).
To be honest I’m severely running out of patience with Martial – highly talented but the attitude stinks and we’ll need to replace him next season if he doesn’t come good.
Sympathy for the Devils
Maguire would NOT be £50m nearer £70m i would say
Sancho has categorically stated he wont move to united….
rumours of a Pogba Swap for Dybala and Costa though…that would be good business IMHO
No point in discussing Hazards future any longer, his gone and the only reason it’s not officially announced is because as expected we managed to reach the El final. Its normal practice, however a player like that does come around often and it’s been a delight to watch his great and unusual skills and retain that humble attitude unlike those other 2 mega stars in Spain and Italy.
Agree with all the above, I haven’t got a bad word to say about Hazard and its been an absolute pleasure to watch him in a Chelsea shirt for the last seven years. One of the best players to ever wear the badge. Not sure if he has made legendary status though, as wanting to leave for another club does tarnish that a bit. But I wish him nothing but the best.
Once he’s gone, we should offer CHO the number 10 shirt providing he signs a new deal. Show Bayern that two can play that game!
He is going. After the final. Period. Nothing indicates otherwise. CHO, it’s still early, immense talent, but now injured and Bayern do not stop lurking. Should he decide to go, we would need a replacement. We cannot start the season with Willian and Pedro and a relatively young and unknown Pulisic. Can Willian and Pedro step up? Hopefully so but look at our game against Leicester. Just so dull. They did nothing meaningful
Reading today that if Chelsea provide some kind of assurance/guarantee regarding his playing time next season then CHO is warming to the idea of signing a new contract and sticking with Chelsea
Complete common sense for me and both the board and the player can see that if Eden does leave us then he is a very strong position especially as the Club has made it abundantly clear they do not want to lose him. Now they must back up the rhetoric with action. KTBFFH
Get Icardi with the £100m that we may get for Hazard. that guy can guarantee us 30 goals a season. and let Giroud join whichever club he wants, send Higuain back to Juventus. bring back Abraham to deputize for Icardi. in that way he can more game time and can learn from him. I think two strikers will be enough for us.
Get Ben Chilwell from Leicester. he is solid defensively with loads of pace. and has the added advantage of being English and homegrown. I’m afraid City may nick him. keep Emerson to deputize for him and sell Alonso to the highest bidder. get an out and out right back and bring back Reece James to deputize for him.
I don’t think if we need another CM at the moment. send Kovecic back to Madrid. and bring back Mount to take his place on the team. with 4 wingers of Pedro, Willian, Pulsic and CHO I will be tempted to add Nicolas Pépé and sell Willian as he seems to have started to decline. sell him while he has some value. our problem is sorted in that way.
Icardi sounds a like a great idea. He is a proven goalscorer. But is he good enough in the hold up? We need a striker who can score but also who can hold the ball. Drogba, Costa were able to do so. Just checked wikipedia, he hasn’t won any major trophy. It will be good to have someone hungry for trophies. Us Chelsea, we like winning trophies. Recently, the only years we did not win a trophy since 2010 were 2013-2014 and 2015-2016 I think, Mou part 2.
I realise it’s only paper talk, but the Mirror are reporting Herrera will earn £300k a week at PSG. Can’t be true.
If that is true then Ed needs to be commended for once. I have no doubt that Mata and De Gea are also looking fortunes. I’d let them go rather than pay it. Now we just need to f**k Sanchez off as he is the elephant in the room of all contract negotiations. On top of improving the squad i hope that we see a massive clear out of deadwood on inflated salaries this summer. That is vital if we are going to get the club back to some sort of normality in contract terms.
