I'm assuming we lose toby cause of his buyout clause, so need another CB. I'm fine with vert and sanchez as main pair, and I like foyth more than you but he cant be 3rd option yet, so it doesnt need to be a big name or expensive, just a good veteran 3rd option
Need 2 central midfielders at least, this is the biggest one. Including 1 of them needs to be top class.
A new backup striker and another attacking mid since lamela csnt be counted on to stay healthy
Also need new fullbacks
So that's at least 7 players, I expect closer to 4 or 5
The huge problem with a backup striker is the reason we have someone like Llorente. You can’t get anyone that good because they know they will likely never start. Ideally getting someone like Son who could play elsewhere when Kane is up front would be the solution.
I really can’t stand Lucas at this point. Yes he saved the champions league against Barca. And he had a great August. But he’s been useless 90% of the time outside of that. He’s missing clear chances
Yep, I said it a few pages back, if we can get 100m for him or whatever I take it and run, I like him a lot but hes too inconsistent, and like you say his reputation is so much more than he has played lately
Agree on the depth and the striker thing too, ideally a wide player, who can deputise, not gonna be him but someone like rashford
Say we have money to buy 1 big name player and then 3 mid level, the big name has to be a cm, the other 3 like you say just create depth. Cant have games next year where only attacking options off bench are llorente and lucas
