      People living in cloud cuckoo land if they think we will be looking at Erikson , Sane and Son

      why?

      I would love for us to go after any or all three of them, it would be a hell of a statement, the kind of thing Utd used to do every single year

      Totally agree with this....I think they all want to leave their clubs and worth £150m-£200m which we can afford.

      That's our squad done for the next 5 years.

      Lets ruffle some feathers.

      Rather have a fit Fekir than any of them.

      Top class.

      Wouldn’t say no to Fekir for a lower price but just don’t see it happening.

      Makes sense.

      He has proven his fitness last season so well worth the gamble for that fee.

      I thought there were reports of him going for £15m? At £30m I'd expect some clauses along the lines of subject to completing x number of games without disruption from that knee.

      I think £30m is doable considering that Ox came for £35m? May as well make it £29m, aesthetically better price.

      I've always believed Shaq suddenly came along at £12m and so we abandoned his transfer. ;D

      Here's a potential swap deal:
      1) Release Shaq at £25m for a £13m profit
      2) Sign Fekir at £30m for a net cash outlay of £5m

      Doable

      eh...

      We get who we get.

      Klopp coming in has shown that the much maligned "transfer committee" actually does a good job, and what we needed was a manager who pulled in the same direction instead of fighting for his "own" players, who invariably turned out to be not quite up to the task.
      We're doing the same things now regarding stats, analysis etc that we were doing 5 years ago.
      The difference is a manager who works collegiately and is prepared to listen instead of pulling in another direction.

      I think we should sell at least one right sided attacking player if we are to get Fekir. We currently have Salah, Mane, Ox, Shaq & even Origi if needs be, and then we buy the Sturridge replacement in F.Anderson or Zaha :D Would be amazing! I also wonder if Asensio is worth looking into.

      you will be saying that in 10 years time mate. His injury list and games missed over the past 3 seasons or so puts him in the high risk category someone we would have taken a chance on a few years back but not now so no he isn't coming but that will not stop people saying he is.

      If the rumours are true the club must feel £30M is worth the risk.

      €30m to be exact, which is around £26.5m, good fee for a rotation player. He played a total of 39 games last season.

      However, I don't think we are in for him anymore and I still believe it is more important to buy a quality rotation player for Mane Salah and Firmino. Keita & Oxlade can do the job in midfield next season.

      This.

      Brewster and Origi may well be solid squad players but they are nowhere near the level of our front 3 lads.

      We need to sign a Werner/Dybala/Depay level of player who can rotate up top.

      Dybala would be a wonderful signing, but frankly speaking I don't see him leaving Juventus (spoke to a lot of Juve fans here in Italy, all are telling me he won't leave).

      I think we should also target Hakim Ziyech of Ajax, really good player also versatile, could cost around £30-40m.

      If we sell Lovren to Milan we need a new CB.

      De Ligt is the the obvious choice but he would need to agree to come here for less than half the £340k per week salary PSG are offering him which is unlikely.

      Yea it would take a lot to prize Dybala away from the old lady. Would he perfect for us though.

      I'm a fan of Ziyech but he seems to be more of a creative AM.

      Neres would be a better choice to rotate up front.

      R.Dias looks quality. I think I would take him over De Ligt.

      For me, we should be looking at tempting the best lads away from our rivals.  Son, Sane, Eriksen, etc. 
      Make a statement and keep our front 3 on their toes, not daring to lose their place to someone that good.

      We made plenty of statements last season, don’t need to go and cripple ourselves financially just to get big name players. If a player is right for us then it makes no difference if it’s Eriksen or some unknown player. City tried making a statement by signing Mendy for £50mill and he hasn’t come close to reaching the level and quality of the £7mill Robbo from relegated Hull. We need the right players, not fantasy football. It’s quality not quantity where the transfer market is concerned.

      I would love us to sign 2 new full backs, and I bet there are a few good £10m-£15m full backs in the Scottish and lower English leagues that would do a better job than Moreno and Gomez at full back.

      I think Milner is the LB backup and Gomez is more than capable as RB.
