Jimenez won't be cheap and he's 29...

I don't disagree with your list, but not easy to find names, though I would swap your CM for a RW like Sancho.

Personally think Sanchez will return, so CF is not needed.
CB, probably someone like Ake. And then there's Sancho.

He wont be cheap but hed be a great addition and our relationship with Mendes would help us negotiate a fee everyone would be happy with.

We deffo need a CM as cover for Pogba or Fernandes ans Matic, Fred and McTominay arent AS offensively minded as the other 2.

RW we have Greenwood and James who deserves a 2nd season .

Dan James isn't good enough. He consistently gives the ball away. Very frustrating.

I like Dan James but we really shouldn't be using him as an excuse not to get Sancho!

Last night proved we need quality through the squad and whilst I think Dan James can have a future at OT as a squad player, filling in positions as and when, I don't think he's good enough to rely on to win things. I'd love to be wrong on that though.

We need Sancho, I'm sorry, But I don't want us to waste this summer, Get him, Pay Borussia Dortmund what they want for him, Also, I want us to get Grealish as well.

We won’t get a cf as ighalo is staying and martial is number 1. We need a forward like sancho as our options apart from front 3 are poor. James is average at best

But James would be a squad player, rotating with Greenwood.

Martial, Rashford and Greenwood have the potential to be top class but below that we'd only have James and Ighalo. I think we should get Sancho and allow some good competition between the forwards. There will be plenty of games for everyone.

We.need a CF.

Martial has yet to prove himself capable as a CF, Ighalo isnt good enough (despite doing well on loan) and Greenwood is too young to rely on at this level.

Jimenez at 29 would give us 3 very good seasons as a proper CF whilst Martial proves himself worthy and Greenwood moves centrally.

Lets not forget there are still a number of players that need to be shipped out permanently.

Jones, Rojo, Pereira, Lingard, Sanchez to name a few (Can also add Mata & TFM)

In terms of incomings, priority needs to be a RW.
We also need another attacking midfielder to add depth in quality when Bruno doesn't play.

Then you are looking at adding another quality CB and CF. Since we have Ighalo I wouldn't say a CF was top priority.

wasn't top priority**

We need a winger. We are so bad in wide areas. Greenwood is a forward and comes inside. The less said about our fullbacks attacking quality the better.

correcting myself when I didn't need to, whoops

We need Sancho, a player who can come in for Bruno if he needs a rest or out and someone to take Matic's place. A CB who is fast and quality. And finally, when Ighalo's time is up, another CF.

Agree with this. Although we may need to look at an alternative to Sancho if he's too pricey.

My point is that we get little attacking quality from our fullbacks, and I don't see us replacing them. So we at least need a winger to add some quality from wide areas.

Also, one of the most effective players you can bring on in a game is a good winger to terrorise the defenders. Look at our bench yesterday, there was no one who could really change a game.

We need

- top quality CB
- Top quality RB and LB
- Sancho

I think we need something in midfield, a Matic replacement at least.

Also, there's no way we're getting a top RB after we have just splashed out £60m on one.

The more I watch AWB at RB the more I am convinced we wasted 50m!

Shaw is also too injury prone at LB but I have been impressed of his forays going forward. AWB offers very little going forward at RB, odd occasions he produces quality but it's painful watching him attack on the whole.

If the FB positions don't get addressed CB should. Maguire needs a top notch partner.

AWB can deliver a good cross at times if he's in position, but overall just isn't comfortable with the ball at his feet.

And yes, a top CB would do nicely.

I get this impression too. just isnt comfortable with the ball at his feet. So little service from our full backs.

I envy Liverpool on that front, imagine what our frontline would do with quality service from the wings!
