Being realistic who do you all think we will get this summer. Can't see any big names arrive despite paper talk. James already in, ABW should arrive, Fernandes for midfield and maybe a CB. De Gea to stay for now, think Sanchez will stay too and hopefully we can off load both Lukaku and Pogba.

{Ed004's Note - Im hoping for something along the lines of Wan Bissaka, Milenkovic, Ndombele/Rabiot, Fernandes and a winger of some sorts like Pepe or Chiesa. Ideally Pogba stays and De Gea signs a contract. Likes of Lukaku, Sanchez, Rojo etc can leave}

Agree0 Disagree1

Just out of interest ed004, why would you want to keep a player who is unhappy and wants to leave?

{Ed004's Note - Because I dont trust the club to replace him this summer. We have a lot of other signings needed. He cant exactly throw the head up with Euros next summer. A lot of options in midfield for that french side}

Signing Ndombele and keeping Pogba would give us a very strong base with Fernandes in front.

If Ndombele is such an excellent player why United are not heavily linked with him? as Herrara already left the club and future of Pogba is uncertain.

{Ed004's Note - Because hes probably signing for PSG and was apparently Madrids back up option for Pogba and Juventus as well. Spurs seems to have had a bid of 60 mill turned down too}

Ideally, I would favour the following:

De Gea
Meunier - Varane - Lindelof - Shaw
Rabiot - Pogba
Rashford - Martial

It would suit that 4-4-2 diamond Solskjaer seems to like, and it would allow for a switch in play with Rabiot able to drop alongside Partay for Pogba to move forward and allow Fernandes to attack with the strikers moving out wide. With all of Rojo, Jones, Damian, Young, Lingard, Sanchez and Lukaku leaving. Tuanzebe, Chong and Greenwood should be promoted. I'd favour Meunier as a childhood united fan who can fill the role while Dalot develops.

I'd also get a young RW, someone like Chiesa would be great.

Realistically, I see:

De Gea
AWB - Smalling - Lindelof - Shaw
Fernandes - Pogba
Lingard - Martial

I don't think a CB will come in for the sake of it. Maybe one of the younger ones Ed has mentioned. I would like to see Tuanzebe get some game time and maybe Bailly finally get a good run to knock Smalling out of the team. I think Greenwood and Chong will be promoted to offer competition to Lingard and Rashford. With McTominay, Pereira and Fred being the midfield backups. I see Lukaku leaving but do not think he'll be replaced, hopefully Darmian and Rojo too. The rest will all likely stay.

Simply because EdW is a specialist in failure. Since he came, none of the managers he hired got all their signings before July.

@ED004. PSG and Juventus are not worth to play for as they are guaranteed to enter the UCL and guaranteed to get knocked out before semifinals every year. PSG and Juventus are good shelters only for out of favour Real Madrid and Barcelona players.
