If any of the Ed’s are around, just looking at the info given by ed002 and news coming out from various different places, it looks like we’re wanting at least 2 cbs, a full back, a midfielder (maybe 2) and a forward. The first choices seem to be Silva £60+ and Todibo £35m+ at the back, Ait Nouri £30m+ at left back, Neves £70m+ in midfield with maybe either Fofana £25m+ or Hjulmand £45m+ and then Olise £55m+ as the forward. Is there any way that this type of summer would be at all financially viable?

{Ed002's Note - putting aside the money these are all targets as I have explained.}

I think it would be a fantastic summer but I really struggle to see us spending £250-300m especially without champions league football. Hopefully we can make some good money with sales. Would selling the likes of Greenwood, Williams, Hannibal and other academy players make more of a difference than selling the likes of a Lindelof?

Sell as many as we can hopefully.

Fingers crossed there’s actually a pretty high volume of sales this summer Eric, even if we have to take a hit on the fees for some of the players such as Donny and Sancho. Get them out and get their wages off the books. Just with Sancho, Casemiro, Martial and Donny leaving permanently we’ll be looking at almost a million pound a week freed up. That’s got to make a big difference.

Those figures seem a bit light. Nice were wanting €50-60m for Todibo in Jan. Benfica want €100m for Silva, Neves has a €120m buyout clause too. Ait-Nouri is 40-50m.

They are light, I purposely went to the lower end of the price range and added a plus to show how expensive it would really be. Although muppetiers has Todibo at around £35m, those prices are the release clauses of Silva and Neves so with it being the summer window they might be available a little lower. Ait Nouri I reckon around £35m would be a good price, wolves are in a bit of a financial pickle aren’t they?

Eric’s right: sell as many as possible and let high earning wages go also.

(Please excuse crass maths now)

Martial, Casameiro, Varane, Evans Sancho: combined weekly salaries of 1 million per week? So 50 million per season? Amortised, get one or two top players with that.

Fees for: Greenwood, Sancho, Maguire, Eriksen, Pellistri, Hannibal, Alvaro etc: maybe bring in another 100 million? Again, 2 or 3 amortised top signings there.

Plus United allegedly have 100m to spend on top of that also.

So long as top players want to join the long term journey, then we could feasibly bring in 4 or 5 top players this Summer.

I think with planned outgoings and changes to PSR and transfer caps, Utd could spend a lot this summer.

Realistically we need £500-600M investment in the playing side alone. This could be over 2 or 3 seasons but if it was me I’d mortgage against the future and buy now.

I think we need to consider also that clubs will still look at us as easy targets in the transfer window due to past performances and transfer fees. I do feel INEOS and SJR will change this over time and we will operate a lot better moving forward however the Summer window will, I imagine also involve us setting the tone of how we will operate so, I guess some targets we will walk away from and then it will be a case of do we buy others for the sake of buying? I'm quite excited for this window to see how we do but I'm not expecting as many wholesale changes as maybe some others. I do hope I am wrong though.

Bradders pretty sure ed002 has said Benfica will look to get the full €100m for Silva. If they do so then they have no need to sell Neves at all, so would hold out for his full release clause. Plenty interest in both will also drive their price up to close to their release clause given Chelsea are said to be interested and Boehly and co haven’t been shy of spending an arm and a leg on a player.
