What are your thoughts son Tosin Adarabioyo?

Obviously a free transfer this summer, but do you think he could be a shrews acquisition for Utd if they were interested in signing him?


{Ed001's Note - he is raw but an improve,ent on the options you have for the style you want to play. So he should be a good option so long as the wages are right. Physically good, but can be rash and loses concentration at times.}

Agree0 Disagree2

Thanks ED001,

I haven't really seen him play. Perhaps he wouldn't be a bad signing on a free transfer, whilst he may improve further given the right coaching.

{Ed001's Note - good coaching could transform him into a very good player. He is decent on the ball but not top end level but comfortable enough to do as a long term option. You wouldn't have to rush to replace him, so it would allow you to concentrate on the other gaping holes in the team and maybe he can grow into the player you need anyway. If I was looking from a Liverpool/Arsenal/Man City perspective, then he is not what is needed. But they all need just finishing pieces for a team. United need an almost complete rebuild, there are very few players there that you would say are good enough long term, Mainoo being the standout exception. So players like Tosin make absolutely perfect sense to fill gaps and allow a quicker rebuild.}

And that's a huge problem at United at the moment -Coaching and the lack of it . Not far behind poor recruitment as the cause of many of our problems long and short term.

The challenge the club face this summer is actually getting rid of the deadwood.

I'm hoping for some astute signings aswell.

{Ed001's Note - that is a problem all clubs face now with Europe's PSR in force.}

I think if we are looking to bring in 2 CB's he would be an excellent option at a reasonable price. We are going to have to be innovative with the window so this fits for me and allows us to look at another CB.

If we went into next season with Martinez, Todibo (or similar), Tosin, Kambawala, Lindelof then we should be good for next year with Lindelof replaced the following year.

{Ed077's Note - he'd be homegrown too.

15 May 2024 10:40:22
Think Tosin becomes an option of we are bringing in 3 CBs he would signal lindelof is also leaving.

Martinez, Branthwaite, Tosin and Silva?

Think they are all happier defending higher up the field than Maguire and lindelof and from what I know (touch wood) they aren't as injury prone as Varane, also you might get all 3 covered under varanes wage alone.

15 May 2024 10:51:42
Silva and Branthwaite would cost towards £150m so I don't see both. Of course depends on who leaves. Seems like exits could be more influenced by contract length/ expiry than ability or suitability suggesting Varane and Evans to go this time round.

{Ed077's Note - Varane is leaving. Evans is out of contract too so a decision needs to be made. I guess one of Maguire and Lindelof may leave dependant on the suitors for them. That's a big turnover in one ho if it happens like that.

15 May 2024 12:11:11
I think silva and Branthwaite may just be available for under 100m. Everton need the money, and the Portuguese papers seem to say benfica would rather lose Silva than neves so a deal can be done. The question then becomes do they want Silva or Neves more and which player do we have the best quality attainable back up for at a decent price etc. lots to think about.

{Ed002's Note - Silva and Branthwaite will not be avilable for £100M - it would cost considerably more to buy them both.

15 May 2024 12:44:55
We’re going to need a new RB as well.

15 May 2024 14:02:12
I imagine silva and branthwaite together would be more than £150m.

15 May 2024 14:35:41
Maybe my sneaky feeling is a little off then.

15 May 2024 15:55:25
In - Todibo, Frimpong and Tosin
Out - Varane, Evans, AWB.

15 May 2024 19:47:26
We’re going to need a new back 4.

{Ed077's Note - Dalot doesn't need replacing this summer.

16 May 2024 11:38:13
Surely need a RB to replace AWB tho?
