I honestly don't think that Axel Tuanzebe will play another game for United.  He really isn't good enough for a top 6 Prem side.  He's big and quick but he lacks concentration and 'in the box' nous.  Good enough for where we are but not good enough to play consistently for Manchester United.  IMO.

Although having said that, neither Chris Smalling or Phil Jones are good enough to play consistently for Man United, but do.

I totally agree Paulie, but both cost a bit of money and I think that's what they will do again.  It will squeeze Axel out of the frame and I'd expect him to not wait around.  I reckon United will break the bank for Harry McGuire from Leicester.

If we go up can we just spend whatever it takes to sign de ligt, he's just superb (I know we don't stand a chance).

Not looking such a great defender now😉

They'll just get the transfer ban overturned. Like they did last time. He isn't ready for Chelsea yet. They'd probably let us loan him again to see if he has improved since his last Premier League season with Abertawe... if we go up.

I think we will have no chance of re-acquiring him if we lose in the playoffs.

Apparently not.

I stand corrected. Ha ha ha ha ha.

(I still reckon we could get him if we go up)

It was great timing.

I think we  will too.

Wonder if we will give a contract to  Yoann Barbet, who was released by Brentford.

Why would we want a player that Brentford didn't want?

Brentford have a wage structure and will not break it for any player. It's likely Barbet wanted more than Brentford were prepared to offer. For what it's worth, he's a half-decent player but Villa could (and should) be aiming for a lot better if Mings isn't available.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Man Utd decide to loan Axel to a PL club next season to see how he copes at the top level before deciding if he’s good enough for their first team.

Hopefully us.

Here's a list that Dean / Jesus should be looking at closely for next season:
https://www.theguardian.com/football/who-scored-blog/2019/may/10/chelsea-on-loan-players-recall-next-season-transfer-ban


I'd keep an eye on DaSilva, Mount and obviously Tammy from that list with Hudson-Odoi is the only other Chelsea player I'd be looking at.

On actual rumours there was one yesterday linking us to Erkan Eyibil at Mainz. He's only 17 and really highly rated apparently, seems to be based on us having a scout at a game.

If we're resigned to losing Tammy, Maupay should be forward target #1 whether we go up or not.

Fits Smith's style of play perfectly, great finisher, excellent link-up play (similar to Tammy in that regard), and has already publicly praised Smith in the media just after he left. Feel he'd be happy to join as long as we met Brentford's asking price.

He's the only one from that team other than maybe Sawyers that we should be actively trying to reunite with Smith, IMO.

Adams can do one.

Tuenzebe is definately good enough for the PL if he can stay fit. Probably not top 6 but someone inbetween a Palace and a Wolves this season and certainly too good for relegation fodder.
