    I really think with the style of play OGS wants at ManU, and coupled with his belief in youngsters, Weah could do well for himself to engineer a move to ManU next season. He wouldn’t be first choice, but he could get a ton of Cup minutes to go along with spot starts. And Weah has a similar style to Rashford who’s flourished under OGS. It’d also be a cant-miss marketing opportunity for ManU.... Chelsea has Pulisic and ManU would have Weah - essentially the two most talented attackers the US has to offer (excluding Sargent who’s locked in a new deal).

    We're having all this speculation when KjbertKjbert could save us some time and admit this player in a position we need to improve at is none other than

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the chatter here was someone that Man City was familiar with?

    Noticed that Negredo is without club now. He's 33. Same age as Villa when he came over.

    Not a chance in hell you could buy him 2x the value transfermarkt has there. The bidding would start at $15M, and I would suspect end well into the 20s.

    My guess, based on nothing much:
    Stevan Jovetic.

    29, plays for an NT that will still call him up.

    Right in the price range of Mitrita, but also might be someone Monaco would just ditch since he’s probably one of their higher earners.

    Downside: has hardly played due to injuries in the last year or so. But that might be why he’s cut rate, too.

    Just a guess. I wouldn’t dance naked if it happened, but if he were healthy he could turn us into contenders.

    He is a pure finisher. Exactly what we need. Where'd you pull that name from? Can't see the team being that creative though.

    I don't think you can get Jovetic as non DP.
    Negredo I think on the other hand you could.
    That being said either I would gladly take.

    At first I was embarrassed that I didn’t immediately recognize this man. Then I google photo searched it and didn’t feel embarrassed at all.

    The DP thing isn’t a big issue if we’re actually ditching Medina as has been speculated.

    I’m not sure a bull is what we need. I am also not really a fan of Negredo. No reason. Just not the type of player I enjoy.
    Pulled directly from the deep recesses of my mind. Or my fat ass.

    Was really just thinking of guys I wanted us to shoot for at launch, and he was always high on my wish list.

    I’d take Giroud as a DP and there’s talk that ManU is willing to send Alexis Sanchez out on loan, so take him as a loaner with ManU picking up his salary to keep it as TAM or less. He’d either rescue his mojo in MLS or it’s too far gone to matter what league he’s in, so why not come stateside for a year.

    Do you think we're gonna Zlatan a DP-type player first year and then up him to DP second year? I think we have enough TAM for that right?

    Lampard's return.

    Signing a striker.

    What's next.

    Yup. This would never happen, although with Mitrita and Weah up front, damn, that’s a ton of sauce. Would be so entertaining.

    I think he’d be quite really pleased with that move.

    Speaking of Nice, remember when there was the rumor that PV wanted to buy Medina for 7M? Damn, in hindsight....
