Rashford is on too much money and has been suggested.
I'd go after Ivan 'Punter' Toney.
Imagine him and Zaniolo in the same team ..

All true enough, but Rashford isn't an up and coming player, he's an established international at a club that don't need or want to sell him.

By all accounts they might want too.  Reports are that both parties are unhappy.  That's what got me thinking about him.
At the end of the day whoever Unai signs will be the right fit.  It's just nice to discuss amongst lovely fellow supports whilst we are all very tired (and struggling to do any productive work) today.

I'd bet he'll outlast TenHag, at which point he wont be unhappy any more.

That's it, he looks like he's going through the motions until the next bloke comes in. Rashford is a very good player, but he'd cost a fortune, be on enormous wages and they'd never want to sell him to us. Just doesn't strike me as an Emery type player at all, there's much better value out there, as the purchases of Torres and Diaby have shown.

Whoever comes in they're going to have to be bloody good to get a sniff.

The lad at PSG looks handy and his contract is up in the summer.

Can we just sign Frimpong from our German feeder club please.

If we're looking there I reckon Boniface will become a top striker in the next couple of years.

Certainly has a great conversion record in Germany.

Boniface certainly sounds on brand for the best looking team in the Premier League.

Hearing Man United fans they want a big clear out
But itís totally unrealistic, Most of the players they list are on £1 million a month, no one is going to be paying that for the same reason as they want to get rid of them

I think our midfield that totally dominated outplayed and outclassed Man City last night cost about 17 million, so it can be done.
I know we will have to start paying big money for players we want but wages I think will always be the biggest problem

and on top of that he seems to have everything you want in a modern striker. He reminds me of Benteke in the bits I've seen of him.

I'm sure they're not the only ones who did it but you'd have to question the decision making at Man Utd when they've ended up with a rake of players who aren't performing but are costing them a fortune, and can't be gotten rid of without losing them more money.

I assume we'll have to start paying some of our players more, and starting new players oh higher wages than we've done in the past, but I'd hope there's someone sensible making those calls. Chelsea and Man U are perfect examples of what happens when there's clowns calling the shots.

Honestly I'm so hungover that I still can't see it.

Yeah, that one is far too obscure a reference when the characters are dancing in front of me. Being at an open bar event and hearing the result come through was a really bad combination.
