I hope we are both wrong @IDFD but I have the same worrying thoughts, I do think we will see a right sided attacker come in but then the rest is a mystery.What I think we need to buy and what we will buy are two completely different things. I think we’ll see a budget CM come in and a blockbuster right winger and that’ll be that.
Oh Saul would be mega money but the guy is the real deal, apart from Pogba we lack creative class from midfield and that’s where we are really lacking.In midfield we could go for Saul, but the price being mentioned is pretty crazy, alternatives of Doucoure or Rice, I would be happy with that.
Isn’t Darmian out of contract as well in the summer?I think we’re now resigned to losing Valencia Herrera Mata. So that’s 3 gone.
Then I’d expect to lose Darmian and Rojo. With Fellaini gone in January that’s a quarter of our allocated players out the door in 6 months.
Absolutely mate. Need to move on Rojo, Jones, Valencia, Mata, Sanchez and some of the other fringe players. Maybe even move on from Matic who's really regressed this year and if that were top continue could hurt us.It has to be doesn't it? I agree with rich on this. I could think of 7 or 8 players that could easily go. Bring in probably 4 high quality and promote the likes of Chong, garner and Gomes, without having to rush them through.
Yeah his father who is also his agent said he's had an offer from Utd but he's seeing what else is out there rumours are Barca are interested as they see him as a useful squad player for them.Read today that we have offered Mata a new deal but he’s leaving his options open. Even though we’ve offered a new deal I fully expect him to leave as he’s not first choice anymore and he doesn’t quite fit in with the philosophy that Ole is trying to implement.
I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the only players to leave are Valencia, Rojo, Mata and Darmian. Sanchez is going to be so hard to move on and I can see Ole giving him one more chance next season. Whether Herrera stays is anyone’s guess, I have a feeling we will come to an agreement with him but the lure of PSG may be hard to turn down as he’s guaranteed trophies at least on the domestic side.
