I read some posts below where a few are of The opinion that signing sanchez would be detrimental to martial and rashford.
I think the opposite. Training and playing alongside a world class player like that can only improve them imo
Martial has magic in his feet but his movement off the ball is poor and his final ball has been inconsistent. If he can learn intelligent movement groom sanchez he will become a much more effective and rounded footballer.
Likewise with rash.
All 3 can play in any position acroos the from 3 or as a striker.
I don't think he will hamper their development he will raise the bar and show them what they need to do to get there.

Good shout. What he has that the others don't - at the moment - is end product. He's a terrier on the pitch with his work rate when he's on his game, but just lost motivation at Arsenal's consistent mediocrity.

Could be the difference and spark that brings us, say, an fa cup along with a deep run in the champs league (I believe he's eligible for both I think), plus min second place in the league.

Jan singings are risky but an established top drawer premier league player, that's still eligible for the cups, is as low risk as they come, putting aside the big money.

I thought Zlatan was doing that? They are young but they aren't kids anymore. There is only so much you can learn from watching others. Now they need to try it for themselves, make mistakes and learn from them. Another player taking away game time will only slow that process.

Let them win their place then they are both inexperienced and need to improve they will improve with sanchez there if they don't what club can they go to that don't habe better players than enemy already? Who is to say either of them won't improve enogh and lukaku finds himself on the bench or he plays on the right and mata finds himself on the bench.

Your right shappy their not kids so let them rise tho the challenge that's what competing is all about. Sancez would raise the bar . Are they up to it? I think they are but they have to prove it.

Sanchez would be a major upgrade and we need major upgrade's.

I'm all up for honing potential, but we struggle with this. I see a lot in Martial, I truly think he can be one of the best, but it's a toss of a coin whether he will be or not for me.

Rash - I don't think is good enough. He is effective in certain scenarios but he is average in too many areas, I haven't see much of a kick on and young players often start with a flourish and then fade away. I'm sure he'll do well, but Rashford is currently well below the standard required to be a regular for an elite club, if he kicks on then great, but I don't think he has the X factor to be one of the worlds best.

So in summary Sanchez is a must signings and to hell with any development ideas for the others, we tried it this way and nobody is pulling up trees - we don't know how to bring these players from 7/ 10 to 10/ 10 - so let's buy the 10/ 10 and hope some magic happens with the potential stars of the future.

Could agree more Beast. The more I see on Rashford the more I wonder if he can be top top class. He has a lot of pace which is great, but his decision making, finishing and composure worry me, even at his young age. Martial on the other hand I feel can be as good as anyone. But as you say, if he actually gets there is still up in the air. Sanchez is one of the top 2 or 3 players in the league and if attainable we should do everything we can to bring him in.

Is he world class?

Is he an upgrade on Martial? Rashford?

Great player, 'phenomenal' according to Jose.

He would be a great addition, but I wouldn't lose any sleep if we didn't him.

I think Martial is better.

Cheers Stand.

Patzi - I think Martial could be better than Sanchez, but he isn't better than Sanchez now, not even close for me. Sanchez turns up the majority of games, Martial doesn't turn up the majority of the games.

We need consistency from our attacking players because Jose plays so negatively, if just one of our attackers is sub-par it seriously hampers our attacking potency. Sanchez could carry a team, he is pure passion. Too many of our players tend to go missing or pass the baton onto somebody else.

If Sanchez is gettable and we decided not to do it for the sake of Rashford or Martial I would be truly amazed. Fortunately I think Jose would be just as short-term thinking as me with this one.

Come on. is he an upgrade on Martial and Rashford? Did you just ask that.

Beast, I disagree about Rashford (I know, you’re surprised) . He is not playing great right now but I think he has everything and needs a solid run. Jose was asked about him missing chances and he said he wasn’t worried as he has been phenomenal in training so let’s hope he can pick it up on the pitch. I think he has all the attributes, he needs effective guidance and coaching and let’s not forget that he really is a kid.

Martial and Rashford are best off centrally. Think that's they key issue.
