Seen a few posts about getting in an understudy for Matic and was curious who people would suggest for this role. (Internal or Purchase)

For me, although not direct like, I would look to Wilfred N’Diddi, the guy is a machine.

Julian Weigl, Ruben Neves, Tanguy Ndombele are some of the midfielders we have been linked with.
Ideally we need a defensive midfielder who is dominant with good game reading and passing ability.

I like Ndidi think he’s a brilliant player. Depends what type of style we are looking to play. I feel at times we lack someone to control the tempo of the game, especially against the big sides.

Matic has been great since ole has taken over. He’s played further forward and his passing range has been impressive. My personal favourite to replace him would be ndombele. They guy is so talented, can dribble, pick a pass and tackle. Of course the dream is Kante but unlikely to happen. I’m also a fan of doucoure.

Ndidi is a great player, however, I'm not sure if he starts most weeks for us. He is great at being a distruptive player in front of the back four. Making tackles, interceptions and winning headers.

Yet when the ball is at his feet he is too limited a player for the top level of the game to be starting every week. His passing is soild and unspectacular. He can't control the pace or tempo of a game. He is a reactive player rather than a proactive player.

He would have been an ideal player to have against PSG, especially when we had our backs to the wall in the second half. But he doesn't add enough going forward to play in 80% of our games in the league.

I feel we are better off going for a deep-lying playmaker who can sit in front of the back four and dictate the tempo and drop back into defence when we are stretched.

Casemiro would be the dream signing, Weigl is another to consider.

Ruben Neves, Premier league proven and has some goals in him as well.

19 Feb 2019 14:46:41
Neves is a brilliant player and is only getting better. i'd take him every day of the week.

But, is he a like for like replacement for matic?

19 Feb 2019 15:23:05
Neves is another who would be great.

{Ed002's Note - £100M for an understudy?}

19 Feb 2019 15:55:17
Any chance Chelsea would sell kante?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but MU has no interest in him.}

I see Declan Rice as a good prospect. adaptable to both defence and midfield, still mouldable. probably cost lots of money but the good ones generally do.

19 Feb 2019 17:08:39
Declan Rice or Ndidi for me.

Could be interesting to see what TfM could do there too.

19 Feb 2019 17:20:25
Disappointing that United have no interest in Kante. Best defensive midfielder in the world by a mile. I'm assuming his price would also be very high but he is the best in his position so it would be expected.

Outside punt on Lucas Tousart? He's looked good at Lyon from what I have seen and plays alongside Ndombele but may not require £80m to get him?

Let it go, Mort. He's gone 😁.

19 Feb 2019 18:47:50
Would have loved Neves before he went to wolves, would love him even more now, young enough to be an understudy for matic.
Rice also a contender.
Money no object kante, Saul niguez.

19 Feb 2019 20:55:33
Casemiro with shadow Chem is up there with the best.

19 Feb 2019 20:52:39
Shame ed. Kante, for me, is exactly what we need.

19 Feb 2019 23:20:02
Any idea why we aren't in for Kante ED? If you have the time and inclination of course.

{Ed002's Note - For the same reason Manchester United are not "in for" Dylan Dykes, there is no interest in him.}

20 Feb 2019 05:11:20
Why would Chelsea sell the world's best defensive midfielder to a rival?
