Before I start, I should mention I am not a United fan but in fact a Chelsea fan. However, I'd like to share my thoughts on how, in my opinion, United should spend their money this transfer window. First of all, if De Gea leaves (which in my opinion Man United cannot let happen), they should go for Cech as much as I'd hate to see it happen. They should sign a RB, perhaps Dani Alves on a free as he seems to have not lost his ability nor physicality one bit. A centre back (or two) is a must, and for me it's going to either be Hummels or Otamendi. Although I haven't seen much of Otamendi I have heard very good things about him, although I have my doubts as only a year ago he was loaned to the Brazilian league. Hummels is very overrated in my opinion, not to mention how slow he is- would be an upgrade on what United have got at the moment nonetheless. A holding midfielder to replace/rotate with Carrick is essential and Bastian Schweinsteiger would be perfect as it seems he's available at a fairly low price not to mention he's still one of the best. Age shouldn't be too much of an issue (reminder that Carrick is 3/4 years older). You almost certainly need a box to box midfielder as well and I've seen you've been linked with Gundogan, Vidal and Naingolan. Gundogan or Vidal would be perfect for you if it wasn't for their injury concerns which seem to be big problems for both players and to be honest with you I have never seen Naingolan play in my life. A midfield three of Schweinsteiger, Vidal and Herrera would be scary! On the wings I think you're probably covered for the time being with Depay coming in as I would give Di Maria another season to prove his worth. Up front you ill almost certainly need another striker coming in with Falcao returning to Monaco and RVP not looking anything like the player he was only 2 seasons ago. The real debate is whether or not Rooney should be the lead striker, and for me he isn't good enough anymore. You should try to sign a player like Benzema, Higuain or Lewandowski (all long shots in my opinion) and let them battle it out with Rooney and slowly integrate Rooney out of the team as you've become far too reliant on him.
I'd like to apologise for the long post but I hope you stuck through it, I'd like to hear your thoughts?
Good luck for next season (although not too much)!!

good post Saim. agree with most of it, would love to get alves and schweinsteiger, hope we keep de gea but cech would b a decent replacement for a few years. i'd rather see a midfield of schwein, Herrera and mata simply because of the understanding that mata and Herrera hav. money can't buy interplay like that. its either there or its not.
I think i'd like 1 more year of rooney as lead striker RVP/Wilson as back up then get a top striker next summer. I think if we sign benzema or higuain they will struggle to keep rooney out of the first team as he's captain and LVG clearly rates him. I would hate to see us ruin another top striker like we did falcao


2.) 27 May 2015 12:11:10
Agree with you about the interplay between Mata and Herrera, however I think that midfield is a risk worth taking. All very good players and all different types of midfielders. It would offer the right balance in my opinion (and reading some of the comments on here apparently LVG likes his balance)!


3.) 27 May 2015 12:56:24
I certainly won't complain if we get vidal as well, always good to have options and perhaps carrick/schweinsteiger Herrera and mata lack a bit of steel. where do u think Chelsea need to strengthen Saim? Costa looked great first half of the season but then injuries/ suspensions hit. Will Zouma take over from Terry as first choice CB?


4.) 27 May 2015 13:33:08
I think we need to sign a right winger who can score goals, perhaps Griezmann (although I feel he may be a little lightweight for the prem) or maybe a cheeky bid for Bale which seems very unlikely. We need another striker to replace Drogba, maybe even 2 strikers because there's a lot of talk of Remy leaving as well (would be a massive mistake though)! I would quite like to see Lacazette come in as he's very young still and scored plenty of goals this season. There's also the Bundesliga top goalscorer who I must admit I've never watched (cannot remember his name, sorry) who is relatively unknown. A left back is also likely since Luis is probably off to Spain and we've been linked with Rahman who is pretty highly rated. Terry has to start the season at CB for me as he's been top class this season. If anything I would replace Cahill with Varane playing next to Terry and then slowly integrate Zouma into the defence- imagine a Zouma and Varane defence over the next 10 years! A centre mid would be nice as well, Veratti would be awesome although I can't stand the little rat! I guess it all depends on departures though!

We actually regret selling Matid. Well I wouldn't have minded actually had we replaced him suitably but Bakayoko was truly awful for us last year although I think many still have faith he can improve! As I said though Willian wouldn't really be missed at Chelsea and you can do better.

Don't make me laugh boys. As a Chelsea fan I can tell you players don't get more inconsistent than Willian. KingGiggsy he's been no where near our best player for the last three years, he has a good first half of the season in 15/ 16 and other than that he's been either poor or had patches of brilliance. He was a substitute most of the title winning season with Conte preferring Pedro and last season Chelsea fans were disappointed with seeing him in the starting 11 up until February when he decided to turn up. If we get £75m from you lot we've well and truly mugged you off I'm afraid.

I'd much rather see Cech lining up for you guys next season than for Arsenal, so I really hope you're right Gman! Besides, for them he'd be a significant upgrade whilst you've already got a top level goalkeeper so that'd definitely make it easier to take!

Don't pretend like you wouldn't snap our hands off to swap Rooney for Hazard. Besides, Costa isn't leaving!

John Terry with terrible positional sense and pace to make up for it? I think you've got the wrong player mate. JT was one of the best at reading the game and was never blessed with pace. He wouldn't go near your club anyway even with Jose there.

I'm sure Spurs are DESPERATE to lose £40m+ on their player to have the privilege of developing one of their rivals young stars for a season lol. And Dortmund loaning their biggest name out in the hope he stays fit so United can get a cut price next season when he's 1 year less on his contract and one year plus on his age.

As a Chelsea fan I can tell you that it depends on which Gary Cahill you'd sign on whether or not it'll be a good signing. On his day he's up there with the best but I think that day may have passed. He's had a lot of stick from us at Chelsea but he's been very solid for the most part of 6 years, won everything there is to win in English/ European football and is a leader. But I agree you should be aiming higher.

Ed002 but be able to clarify things on this one. I remember a while back he mentioned something about Adidas potentially trying to play a part in moving Messi (an player sponsored by Adidas) to one of their major clubs, which at the time were Chelsea, Bayern and RM I believe but obviously never came to fruition. I may be wrong here but maybe someone can help because there was something along the lines of that! Hope this helps guys.

Not a United fan but that gave me a chuckle RWWD. That's what I told myself the whole of last season as a Chelsea fan.
