Think we can all agree CB is where we most badly need to invest. For me I’d love to see us go for Varane or Koulibaly
RB - would Azpillecueta be tempted to leave Chelsea if they spend a second year in Europa League? Prem proven, leader at the back. If not him then Meunier makes sense
CM - Rabiot on a free is a no brainer for me! He could sit with Herrera leaving Pogba roam free. Younger, quicker and more exciting than Matic, allows him to be a squad player used to come off the bench to close a game out. Would allow McTom to go on loan and play regularly. I reckon we’d get a top player back if he got a years experience
RW - time to consider Bale again? (But actually get him this time) Martial on the left and Rashford up top is exciting but both are young and can be inconsistent. We need someone who can guarantee goals from the right and Bale does that (when fit) . Chong is an exciting prospect and signing Bale would give Chong opportunity to play 15+ games next season. If he doesn’t fancy leaving sunny Madrid I’d take a chance on Pepe, Dybala, Dembele or Bernadeshchi
Bulk up the squad with Alfie Mawson (replace Rojo) and Mitrovic from Fulham once they get relegated
Promote Tuanzebe, Gomes and Chong fully and bring Garner and Greenwood into the fold slowly
Ins: Outs:
Azpillecueta. Valencia and Darmian
Varane. Jones
Mawson. Rojo
Tuanzebe. Bailey (on loan)
Rabiot. McTom (on loan)
Gomes. Perreira
Bale. Sanchez
Chong. Mata
Mitrovic. Lukaku.

Agree0 Disagree7

Have there been any further developments Ed apart from interest in Douglas Costa and Koulibaly?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time.}

I would struggle to do that sort of window on fifa let alone real life.

28 Feb 2019 22:51:22
What a horrible list this is, azpilicueta? Rabiot? Bale? Why would you want Bale for? He will be injured most of the time hanging out with Jones than playing.

01 Mar 2019 01:24:42
Agree reman. I don’t understand the high praise for Azpilicueta. He seems to be stuck between two positions. He’s not good enough going forward to be a rb and not good enough to play in a 2 as cb. He’s perfect for 3 at the back to offer him protection. But yeh that list is not a great list of players. Add koulibaly, ndombele, Sancho and wan bissaka and that’s a great window. Not sure how successful we would be in attaining them all.

01 Mar 2019 04:53:37
Bale would command a huge fee as well as wage.
But, we do need an elite forward who performs week in week out.
We have far too many young players in our squad who can be inconsistent.
Maybe get rid of Sanchez and get in Robert Lewandowski?

In Central Midfield I would prefer Saul Niguez over Rabiot.
At 24, he would be a solid investment for the long term.

Koulibaly or Skriniar for CB.

01 Mar 2019 06:49:06
Avoid Bale at all costs the last thing we need is another 30something on obscene wages. Much prefer to see Lozano come in for a wide position.

01 Mar 2019 07:51:50
Kev, I’d like a pint of what you’re drinking mate 🙄

Bale may have been an option a few years ago but not any more. Mitrovic? Azpilicueta? Ole has shown how well this team can play, we have some youngsters coming through so we need to but probably 3 top level players to supplement that. Why would we send McT out on loan, the kid is doing really well and should now be a regular squad player. You want to seen him put on loan but promote Gomes and Chong who have no first team experience at all?

It’s all about opinions I guess.

01 Mar 2019 09:40:43
I'd quite happily take Rabbiot on a free this summer. He could play in the Matic or the Herrera role allowing some rotation. Also allows money to be spent on other players.

Koulibaly or Romanogli for CB. No to Bale, Azpi and Mitrovice.

TrueRed - I like Saul but he'd cost a lot.

01 Mar 2019 10:17:31
Saul is quality and worth the investment.
The Spanish contingent in our team could help him to settle quickly.
We need players like him to close in on City and Liverpool.

Rabiot comes with baggage so wouldn't prefer him. Another player I like is Julian Weigl of Dortmund.

01 Mar 2019 11:43:31
How many times have we flirted with Bale and he's not wanted to come to us? Feels like desperation with him. He doesn't fancy us, but we still have his name written in the bottom of our pencil case.

I'd rather we played youth than brought in an older mercenary who doesn't really want to come.
