Alex sandro for me, easier deal to do if juve want darmian and need funds to buy ronaldo if what's reported is true.

Rose is a decent player, but he isn’t playing anywhere near his best at the moment. Sandro would do well in our system, give a bit more width down the left.

Fcuk Shaw, 4 years at the club and he has a converted 33yo winger ahead of him. Time for the last of the privileged few (Depay, Schneiderlin, Shaw) to get out of the club.

Nice. Shaw is still a kid who needs more support and guidance than most. I still think he has it.

Want Shaw to come good, if not Sandro, don’t see the appeal for Rose.

So latest rumours are we might not look at LB this summer and make a serious move for Teirney next summer. I really like the look of Teirney, plus he helps our homegrown quota.

Shaw looks like he has got himself in good shape, like Rooney I think he is a player who has to play consistently to maintain this fitness levels. Apparently the board are unwilling to sanction the sale of and English player who we paid a world record fee for as a teenager.

Plus we have Young who has been solid this season, and we've added Dalot who can play RB or LB.

Blind and Rojo might be sold this summer but if not then we have them as cover. Plus Demitri Mitchell who was playing very well in Scotland before his injury.

I can see why the club might be prepared to wait a year before spending 50m+ on a new LB.

{Ed004's Note - I still think we will make a push for Sandro. Its almost as if we are waiting to see who blinks first between us and Juventus. They want Darmian and we want Sandro. Hopefully something will be arranged that suits both parties. Also Sandro still hasn't signed the new contract offered to him weeks ago apparently}

Do they still want Darmian? They just agreed to buy Cancelo who is a RB, so do they need another one?

I can see them maybe needing to sell a player or two in order to raise funds and reduce the wage bill if they are serious about signing Ronaldo. But if that is the case then they simply can't afford to sell players on the cheap.

Sandro looks a very good player, however he has been below his best last season. How would he adapt to the EPL?

As said we currently have 6 players who can play at LB (Young, Shaw, Dalot, Mitchell, Rojo and Blind) . So how vital is a signing in that position especially when three of those six are young developing players.

We might soon have an issue with homegrown players as well if we are not careful. Carrick has left this summer as has Johnstone. Young will leave next summer and Jose apparently would like to offload Shaw. Jones and Smalling are constantly touted to be sold as well. This only really leaves Rashford, Lingard and Pogba who count as homegrown. Maybe waiting a year and giving Shaw and Mitchell a chance might give us another homegrown player is either can step up. If not then maybe look at Tierney next summer who would still be less than the 50-60m Juve want for Sandro this summer.
