If/ when the Sanchez deal is done, I would love to see the club moving on to getting Blind, Herrera and Fellaini out in the summer. I would like to see Jorginho of Napoli and Sergej Milankovic Savic from Lazio being brought lined up to come in the summer.

We need to see Smalling and Rojo moves on. I would like to Laporte or De Vrji brought in along with Tierney from Celtic and Aaron's from Spain as FB cover.

Finally good by Zlatan and hello Bellotti.

I doubt very much we will get most if any of these players as all of them will come with significant transfer fees. In all likelihood those players would cost circa £270-300m. I just don't see that happening at United.

But united play at the theatre of dreams so that is what I am going to do.

That would be an almost perfect window huggy! Personally I don’t think we will look to get another forward such as Bellotti now that it looks like Sanchez is coming. I think rashford will now be deployed through the middle more and I think that’s his best position. If we are going to sign a back up I would go all out for Vardy as I think his pace would be frightening for defences. Of course Dybala would be a pipe dream but we never thought Sanchez would be possible so he would be my choice to take the number 10 shirt from Zlatan.

In midfield, Milinkovic-Savic would be perfect and I think it looks like it will happen. I’d bring back pereira and integrate him into the squad along with Fosu Mensah. We would need another body seeing as though Fellaini and Herrera look like they will be off. Maybe someone like ndidi would be a nice squad player I have always been impressed with him when I’ve watched him play. Ozil would be my ideal signing I think the guy is a wonderful player when on form and he would be feeding our forwards for fun.

I’d bring in Fabinho to challenge Valencia at right back. Shaw looks to be winning over Jose but I would assess it in the summer because we know how injury prone he can be. Personally I would prefer to keep shaw rather than splash out big money on rose. I really like Jorginho but I can honestly not see us spending big on two midfielders. I like lindelof and I think he will come good so I don’t think we will invest in a cb. But if we did varane or Laporte would be a nice addition.

We have the makings for our best squad since 2008. It’s nice to have that feel good factor slowly returning. Style of play needs to improve but I’m am pleased with the direction we are going.

19 Jan 2018 16:30:06
I do think Sanchez is a replacement of Zlatan, just thinking. I would like two midfielders to be signed, DM and CM, Sergej M. S. being one, Rw, CB if Rojo and Smailling are to be moved. Not sure about the FBs as both Shaw and Fosu are doing well.

19 Jan 2018 16:35:21
Can’t see both of SMS and Jorginho coming when one will not be a starter, aka Jorginho.

Laporte is slowly becoming a dud, would much prefer Inigo Martinez if it was that style of CB we’re looking. The best move would have been Akanji from Basel, however Dortmund have already snapped him up which is a great move.

Happy to see Mourinho’s comments on Luke Shaw today, about time too. I think Tierney is a ‘bhoy’ through and through, can’t see him moving for some time.

Also, not sure I see the point in Belotti now we have Lukaku.

19 Jan 2018 18:30:18
I'm a massive fan of Jorginho and we really need a midfielder who can control a game. At the moment we are asking Pogba to defend, attack and set the tempo of the game which despite his immense talent is too much. Playing Pogba, Jorginho and Matic would give us a nice balance in the middle of the park.

Milinkovic, Jorginho, Jose Gimenez and Sidibe from Monaco would be the ideal summer window for me.

19 Jan 2018 19:27:34
Doubt wed sign that many players. I honestly feel we are not that far away, considering city are unlikely to be as good next year and we should get a full season out paul pogba.

With Sanchez coming now, i only really see 2-3 players coming in the summer especially considering the praise mourinho has lavished on luke shaw today.

We have 6 centre backs on the books and jose is unlikely to ditch any of them and that's plenty. Probably only looking at a centre mid to replace fellaini and ozil to replace mata.

20 Jan 2018 05:51:05
Great post, you are absolutely right that we need to get rid of last year’s player of the year, as well as the midfielder that Jose really rates, and also a player who can play in a lot of different positions that has never let us down. What we need is a team full of superstar players. There is no room for honest pros who don’t moan and do a job when called on. I’ll give you the full backs though.

20 Jan 2018 11:47:21
Morning AJH, we clearly have a difference of opinion or at least view point. I personally don’t think the players we have are good enough to keep up with the standards beins set in the blue half of the city. Now their performances may be a freak anomaly or it may be the ew norm. One thing I know for certain is that they will buy in the summer and will add to their squad depth.

I have nothing against the squad players, the park ji sungs, solsjars, the fletchers, Evans and O’Sheas helped us win many a title, but our squad depth and quality of second choice is lacking. Our performances and results dropped off when Pogba was unavailable and even the much maligned Fellaini being absent saw a drop off in performance. I did not notice a similar effect on city when Silva was absent. We can either evolve or b left behind.

And as I said in my post I accept it is a pipe dream and highly unlikely to happen, but being a positive person I like to be optimistic.

20 Jan 2018 12:02:25
You mean the standards being set by delph danilo otamendi sterling and co.

20 Jan 2018 12:37:21
I do, because the table does not lie. A little better squad depth and maybe we would not have dropped so many points over xmas and been a lot closer.

Where is our cover if pogba or Matic get injured? Will blind Herrera and Rojo suffice? In my view no.

I hate to say Herrera should go, he is a quality player with plenty of intelligence and passion, but in terms of style of play he is not quite right for the system we are likely to play. We have a year left on his contract so need to move him on while he still has value. As bad as it sounds maybe we should have taken barca’s Offer in the summer.

I would rather the squad player position so are taken up with youth products like tuenzebe, Fosu Mensah, peirerra etc. Let’s move on the average player on inflated contracts with only 12 months left instead of having to offer them even larger contracts to extend. THat gives the youth a chance and frees up wages for the likeable of Degea who deserves a huge contract as a top performing player who has delivered year after year.

20 Jan 2018 13:27:05
Where is city cover if aguero Jesus gets injured?

So you would be happy if we bough danilo otamendi and delph this summer?
You didn't notice a difference with out Silva? They scraped a 1.0 over Newcastle drew with palace scrapped a 2.1 against Bristol and got stuffed off the scouse .

20 Jan 2018 13:43:25
Wow, just wow Jared! Talk about twisting a post. I don’t recall saying I wanted any of those players. I would take city’s place in the league. Remind me how we did against Bristol. oh and I forgot we played Liverpool off the pitch didn’t we.

I did not say city had full cover in every position. Correct me if I am wrong, but they are still first in the league, still in the caraboa cup, still in Europe and still have better squad depth than us. Oh and they also play more attractive football than us.

20 Jan 2018 13:59:00
But you implied our players where not as good as city? So why wouldn't you want there players.

We got beat of Bristol with 11 better players on the pitch than Bristol. Maybe that tells us something

City are doing what all good teams do and playing better than the sum of there parts .

If blind fellaini Herrera are not good enough for United why are delph and co good enough for city .

What where your thoughts on lingard at the start of the season.

20 Jan 2018 14:29:49
I said city had better squad depth than us. And i think they do. They have long term planning in place. The i'd the manager they wanted and got him, they realised their keeper was crap and upgraded him, they realised injuries cost them so got better squad depth and cover at FB.

Squad places and wages are finite. If we are to promote youth and improve, then players need to leave. We are happy for Miki to move on, yes he has been inconsistent, but he played a massive part in us winning in Europe last year. Not just the final, but scoring all the way through.

Lingard was a player I did not rate as he was very inconsistent. I did not think he had the current performances in him. He has proved me wrong. I like Blind, Herrera and Rojo, but if we can upgrade much as we appear to be doing with Sanchez then players have to leave and I would rather it was the named players than the youth.

20 Jan 2018 14:36:58
I was one of the people beating the drum saying we should sign herrera, but I do not think he is adequate cover for matic or pogba. I have not forgotten the excellent job he did marking hazard out of the game or that it was him that sent miki into the box for the goal in the euefa cup final, but he has a season left on his contract.

Do you think he should be given a bumper contract to renew or do you think we should look for cover for matic and pogba.

I know lingered proved me wrong. You clearly don't agree with me and that is fine we are all entitled to our opinion, as such what would you do to the squad to improve it for next season? Who would you like to see signed (ignoring the messi's and renaldo's of this world) . I am genuinely interested.
