Frankly I have not watched much of Sancho or Odoi, but the frenzy about them has caught my attention. One question for all that have seen them play, are they a better option than bringing Depay back?

Both seem to do a better job on the right wing than Depay.

Sancho seems great but I wouldn't underestimate the affect of playing in Germany out of the spot light.

Not seen enough of CHA looks a talented player but very young.

Depay has improved dramatically since he moved, did we have some sort of clause to buy him back? If we do I'd take him back, he was the right player but at the wrong time. He would fit into this style 100%.

No doubt Depay has improved since his move to Lyon. But has he improved dramatically or has a run of games in a comparatively weaker league enable him to find his best form?

I wonder if he would be able to perform to the same standard in the EPL at a club that is constantly playing under the spotlight of the world's press.

Great players have struggled under the weight of the United shirt playing in the unforgiving EPL.

I think he is an excellent player, but I question whether he has the mentality and attitude to make it at a top club.

I think we should look towards other players now and let Memphis seek out the right career path for him.

Thought Depay played on the left wing?

25 Mar 2019 13:03:05
To me Sancho and Odois work ethic and image alone would be tempting rather than Depay who just wants to be famous and extravagant.

25 Mar 2019 14:19:13
Shappy, same way we can't be sure either Sancho or Odoi won't struggle with the weight of donning the Utd shirt. To be fair, Depay has also been good for his national team not just lyon.

The Eds did say the move was too soon for Depay, add that with the number 7 Jersey, and you get double the pressure. Even Valencia with his experience at utd could not handle that pressure. Perhaps now with a bit more maturity he can fill slot back in.

You are right Steve, Depay is predominantly a LW as is Odoi, Sancho though seems more of a RW.

Just to weigh in on this as a Chelsea fan who's seen nearly all of Callum's minutes for the first team.

He was thought of as a left winger purely to start the season, but he's looked as electric, if not more on the right where he's less eager to cut inside and instead utilise the space on the flank.

25 Mar 2019 16:06:21
Sign both, gives plenty of options. Move on Liberace and Mata.

25 Mar 2019 18:05:45
Liberace?

25 Mar 2019 18:22:18
Sancho and Hudson-Odoi would both be able to take the pressure of being at Utd. They are class acts that are well above their years in terms of development.
To think that Sancho had the intuition to leave a PL side and then go to Germany and make a success of his early career speaks volumes. Hudson-Odoi wants to do the same. Neither player was phased by playing for England the other night.
You can always say that buying any player is a risk but with the right manager and players in the squad to help these young players there is no problem.
Anyway Utd have tried the proven pro in Sánchez and look at what that has provided.
I would take either of these without any hesitation.

25 Mar 2019 19:16:06
Sanchez Ken.

I posted about these two young players and it went on the discussion page. Odoi and Sancho are very young but look high potential. I would prefer those two to Bale and Griezmann for example, but whether the decision maker at the club will think so is what matters. Bale has had a number of chances, so enough of chasing him. Sancho and Odoi is risky but I think has a potential high upside.

25 Mar 2019 20:58:27
Names like bale sell papers but I think we will buy young this year .
That said people like there star names.

No chance Chelsea will let odoi go to United, I wouldn't be surprised if we got Sancho tho .

We have some good young players at the club but people always want to buy established names .

26 Mar 2019 06:25:57
Can you imagine the uproar on the site last January if we had of thrown a couple of mill at sancho and not gone the "extra mile " for Sanchez when he was available?

Can you imagine the uproar if we didn't buy griezmann but gave a player like Chong a chance?
Would people really give these young lads a chance to develop, learn the game have dips in form?
It was only a few month ago people wanted rid of shaw and martial, look at the stick rash was getting .

26 Mar 2019 12:45:21
That was when we were losing our identity. People have started to remember what United are about. I think most people would give them time. There'll always be the odd cabbage who wants everything now. After all Sanchez has proven such a hit.
