Gueye would be a good matic replacement

He has a great engine too.

Agree0 Disagree6

His ability on the ball is just like McTominay. Can't pass forward.
Not united quality imo.

It depends on what you want from a defensive/ holding midfielder. Do you want someone to just break up play then make a simple pass or do you want someone who can create from deep and control the tempo of a game?

I think at the top level you need someone who can create and control the tempo as you shouldn't have to worry too much about breaking up the opposition as you should have the ball and control of the game most of the time. In which case a player like Gueye would be a passenger 90% of the time as he can't contribute to the offensive side of the game.

Gueye is decent but shappy is right. If we want to compete with the best I think we need a ball playing defensive midfielder. Basically we have never replaced Carrick. We need to improve our build up play from the back, especially against the big sides. We have lindelof already and someone like koulibaly next to him would improve that. Then a neves would be a fantastic addition.

Park; I think Matic replaced Carrick even if for a short term.

Gueye is bang average. No better than some of our deadwood. We need top drawer signings not another average squad player.

That’s a good point mbd. I’m a big fan of matic but we need to rotate him more next year to avoid him burning out.

McTominay replaces Matic, Gana replaces McTominay.

As stated above by some already, I think Gueye is quite overrated. He puts up decent to good defensive numbers but is very limited on the ball and not that great in the air. To add to that he is nearing 30 so there isn't that big a chance of improvement so I give a pass.

If we want to sign a Defensive midfielder from the league I think Ndidi at Leicester would be a better choice, younger, a bit better on the ball, better in the air. But do we need just a destroyer type player or a more rounded DM?

05 Mar 2019 07:38:38
I agree with you Deependra. I think Ndidi is very talented with room to get even better. He's a destroyer in there in the mould of a Kante. I know it's fantasy but Neves beside him spraying the passes and Pogba in front of them is my dream midfield trio for the next few years. Would obviously cost big money but I think signing them two midfielders would be astute business.
