Matic and Mata need to go at some point soon, immobile midfielders aren't needed in any form going forward

Lingards as done as Pereira

James might be worth keeping, loan spell could do him well, even at 20+

Defence isn't as urgent as it was, with Bailly looking his old self and Shaw actually fighting for his place surprisingly

Shaw is still a liability and I haven't seen enough of Telles to form a solid opinion. We are still light on the right and we could do with a top-drawer central defender and a striker for the long-term. We might get another season out of Cavani.

I think right midfields the priority, we're still starting Dan James there eh

Ole’s done well getting the shite out of the club.

Lingard, Rojo, Young, Valencia, Periera, Smalling all gone. 

Still have a job to get rid of Pereira. He hardly gets any minutes for Lazio. But yeah Ole has done a really good job there. Add Sanchez, Darmian, Lukaku to that.

Still Jones, Dalot, Mata to go and I think James is now in that group. Williams too tbh but he will get more time.

Anyone else think we need a ball playing CM before a CB? 

 

I like both Fred & McTominay, but their limits are clear by now. I hate to say it, but Fred isn't good enough to start for a title winning team. McTominay is a very good squad player.

A DM is vital. To free up Pogba & Bruno to dominate. Ndidi/Rice transform this team.

Garner will be ready for the 1st team after another good loan next season.

If Cavani doesn't stay, he also needs to be replaced by a younger version. I would take DCL for £45-50 million if Haaland is impossible.

I like Greenwood on the right and we also have Amad. Sancho isn't as important now, for me.

I think DM & ST are the priorities.

Do you think Rice has the passing ability? I know he'd free up Pogba but a lot of times it would still be Rice with McTomminay or Fred.

Rice has become a top DM. He will only get better. His line breaking passing is improving. 

DCL

Rashford-----------------------Greenwood

Pogba--------Bruno

Rice

Shaw-------Maguire------Lindelöf------AWB

Henderson

Subs: GK, Telles, Bailly, McTominay, vdB, Amad, Martial

Assuming De Gea and Cavani leave, that is. I hope Ole moves away from 4-2-3-1.

I do like that team but i'd be amazed if Ole left his double pivot.

Rice or Ndidi? 

Eitherway we'll be ripped off.

We need one of them.

Or an import from a different league.

Upside is they have both played over 100 PL games each and should settle easily.

But yeah, not sure the club would spend close to 150+ million on Sancho and Rice/Ndidi.

Maguire showed we wont get either of those for less than 70m. 

Worth looking at Saul Niguez or Kessie, although Kessie seems more of a Box to box.

Neither are specialist DMs like those two.

Tchouaméni is latest beastly French prospect from Ligue 1. Has Kanté/Partey type qualities.

I have grown wary of Monaco stars in recent years.

The most real hit or miss transfers.

Just keep buying French players. One out of three has to come good.

They have the best depth at CB & DM in Europe. So many 18-23 prospects.

Looking at their squad they have a good mix of quality players, young talent and experience. 

Issue is, you need to buy these young french players before they get to Monaco, or you're paying 3-4 times the price.

They got Tchouaméni for like 15m, they'll get 40-50m for him.

You can see why we need a DM.

Fred & vdB aren't natural holding players.

More than those two, I'm becoming more and more fond of Pogba on the left which leaves us with only McFred and Matic at CM. 

Pogba------Bruno------Sancho

---------Rice-------McTom-----

I like that midfield. Not sure how Rashford would feel though. It is still lacking passing behind the lines from deep though.
