I was thinking about our striker situation and I agree we need one because Rash doesn't look ready and Martial is a risk. But I don't think we should gamble on somebody like Morata or Belotti for the money being asked.

I'd personally go for Vardy, probably less than £40m, would work his socks off and we need that from a striker. He would feed off of Pogba all day long and is proven in the league. We'd get a good two years out of him and I believe he would be happy being rotated as well.

I normally hate the idea of not signing world class players. But I'd make an exception here as I think he could be a revelation with his pace, movement and eye for goal. I'd much rather chance him than pay double the money for the other players we are linked with. Anybody agree that Vardy could be a smart bit of business (I also like that he was loyal to Leicester last season)?

I think there is method in your madness, it's a fair point but I'm not sure it will go down well.

14 Jun 2017 17:02:28
Sorry beast but it's a no from me, appreciate your selling points tho.

14 Jun 2017 17:20:42
Beast, I have been thinking the same thing someone like Giroud Aguero Benzema or vardy may be easier to target and would help Rashford and martial.

14 Jun 2017 17:23:16
Nah beast stick to your guns utd should sign world class . I'm guessing yr post is because u don't rate morata or find reported prices for him absurd. I like vardy but if we are dreaming dream bigger mate if the choice was simply vardy or morata I wouldn't be against it but there's a few I'd try for first.

14 Jun 2017 17:36:47
I think we need 2 strikers so why not both haha.

Personally I think we should bring Hernandez back along with morata.

14 Jun 2017 17:54:05
I actually agree with Beast on this. But not if Vardy is the only striker but yes if he is in addition to a belloti or Morata. I am sure he would get us goals with his pace in behind which was what we missed last season. He is also clinical in front of goal unlike Rash or Martial.

14 Jun 2017 18:01:21
I agree with some of the sentiment here but not necessarily the player mentioned - not sure Vardy is quite good enough nor does he seem like a classic Jose striker so may not fit in?

Would you sign Vard, Jred? It is unclear from your post.

14 Jun 2017 18:10:41
Nice post Beast, thinking outside the box etc. Personally I think Rashford is better option than Varday now, very similar in many ways if played more centrally but he hasn't been given too much time this season to work on that cohesion with Pogba etc. My main concern about Morata is the price. £40 - £50 million max for me but if the club can afford it I guess I shouldn't moan. He is a very good footballer who can mix it up. Not my first choice though.

14 Jun 2017 18:19:05
I think vardy is very much on the decline. I think he had been a breath of fresh air i like the way he plays but he ciuld teach rash and martial a lot in terms of running off the ball. I think he might regret not taking the arsenal move in years to come.

14 Jun 2017 18:36:13
I like vardy he must be a pain in the ar5se to play against but not really a Jose striker not sure he gives you much more than rash or martial.
I think either of them could do a similar job

But it maybe wouldn't be a bad idea, I think beast makes a good point could be a smart bit of business .

In short I'm not sure lol.

14 Jun 2017 18:47:31
Haha thanks for the honest response. I think the same regarding what Rash and Martial offer, so think we need an option in the Jose mold of a striker to give us that different option.

14 Jun 2017 19:16:36
I think that's what Jose will go for.

14 Jun 2017 19:31:11
Agree with that BEAST!

I also think Rash has the potential to esily surpass Vardy BUT at the moment, i would feel confident that Vardy would put more away for us.

Good call mate.

14 Jun 2017 20:02:19
People saying we need a world class striker and that's absolutely right, we do, but who is available?

14 Jun 2017 20:10:49
I would have rather had a punt on defoe before vardy tbh I honestly think he would be the epitome of small fish in a big pond I don't think he would perform at all .
Only my opinion.

14 Jun 2017 20:17:03
I don't get it why buy vardy because he would cost half the price of morrata. Get two years out of him. Yet moan if we pay double that for a 22_23 year old.

14 Jun 2017 21:11:50
I would get both Morata and Vardy in that case if he doesn't mind being sub. He could come on for 25mins and run the tired legs at the back a bit.
