If Jose did have £100m to spend in January, who would you all want him to go for. Realistically you're not getting any decent deals in jan but would like to know peoples preferred targets. I think we need a striker. An out and out goal scorer like Icardi or Cavarni.

Would get in Alderweireld and Pulisic, maybe over £100m but offload a few fringe players.

There's probably 3-4 positions that need strengthening, but it's hard to expect any shrewd signings available in January. Crying out for a commanding centre back but the market for them is ridiculously inflated. Maybe if Dalot is getting in the team more by January we won't need a right back. Matic can't play games in quick succession anymore, was getting run ragged by Sigurdsson yesterday after 10 minutes. I'd personally love to see Ndombele but would expect that's pretty much impossible in January. We still need a right winger, maybe this is one area where we might be able to do something. Nicolas Pepe is having a great season, someone like Zaha perhaps if we're desperate. I agree we definitely need a striker, an all round number 9. Lukaku is great when he's a luxury player like for Belgium when he isn't required for retaining the ball and developing the play.

Alderweireld, a striker and a Right winger. Would love to see Vardy and someone like Malcolm (as he is surplus to requirements at Barca) .

No Pulisic as i don't have any kind of faith in Dortmund players.

Alderweireld or skriniar and a rw winger of either zaha, Dembele or Malcom. Skriniar will be very expensive and difficult to sign in January, but still yet to sign a contract. The dream would be koulibaly. Top 3 cb in the world at the moment. Solid as a rock but can also play. Will cost a fortune and most likely he would be more inclined to join sarri at Chelsea.

I absolutely love zaha. He was brilliant against arsenal yesterday, always a threat and so difficult to stop when he’s on form. Equally I would be happy with either Malcom or Dembele. Malcom just hasn’t had a sniff. Doesn’t mean he is a bad player. But think he would be very exciting alongside our other attackers. Zaha is premier league proven so he tips it for me. I’m tempted to say a striker but I would like to see rashford and Sanchez given a chance to play up front. Think Sanchez could cause havoc with his movement. Also his best season was playing through the middle for arsenal. Lukaku needs to shed some weight and fight for his place. He has a tall ask on his hands at this current moment.

The frustrating thing is why didn’t the board back Jose with this ‘spree’ in the summer. It reeks of too little too late for me. Prices will be way more inflated in January as clubs will know we are desperate. Lack of planning again has failed us. Throwing money around paying over the odds for players in a panic because we have not got a proper football man upstairs to identify and endorse a criteria of player that united should be looking to bring to the club. Hopefully a couple of the aforementioned players can be signed as I think they would fit in very nicely and take us up a level.

I think the genius of ed Woodward knows no bounds. With what's a usually inflated price window coming up tell everyone what you have to spend. And then also don't bother to look at the going rate of players. Last January VvD cost £75m. Laporte cost £60m. Just what are we supposed to get for £100m? Not too top class players. Maybe should've spent in the summer Ed and saved a lot of mess.

Hundred percent with you mort. I feel exactly the same. Ridiculous to be honest. Won’t be able to secure a winger and cb for 100m.

29 Oct 2018 21:53:43
Maybe he’ll spend it all on Zaha.

29 Oct 2018 22:00:55
Bring Rooney Ibrahimovic and Schweinsteiger back.

29 Oct 2018 22:48:48
Douglas costa and alderweireld.

30 Oct 2018 01:34:32
Offer the lot for Kante.

30 Oct 2018 09:58:40
Samu Castillejo and Kalidou Koulibaly.

30 Oct 2018 11:46:03
I will play CB for a chippy tea and a few pints.

That would make sense if Woodward had come out and said we have £100m to spend, whereas the press have just realised we hardly spent anything in summer and still have money to spend, nobody is saying it will be in January or that anyone from the club has said it. That time of year already when people believe all they read?

{Ed002's Note - What is Woodward supposed to have said about £100M to spend?}

dont know what's in the kitty and what'll hapeen in the jan window, but a good bit of business could be getting £500k allegedly a week off the wage bill.
