Poll: who tops your summer transfer wishlist?

Transfer season is in full swing, with Louis van Gaal having already signed £30 million Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven this summer. The Dutch winger is likely to be the first of four or perhaps five top quality signings in a busy summer that could stretch to another £150 million spree. At least if Van Gaal’s determination to mount a Premier League title challenge next summer matches the Glazer family’s new found willingness to release club cash for transfers.

Certainly, Van Gaal would like to bring in a central defender, right-back, central midfielder and striker this summer. If David de Gea moves to Real Madrid as expected then a replacement goalkeeper will also join the club in the coming months.

With the wishlist already lengthy it is little wonder that media gossip has run deep, with the fourth estate speculating Manchester United bids for more than 20 players. Topping the list are superstar names such as Gareth Bale, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Edison Cavani, together with youngster talents including Harry Kane, Felipe Anderson and Roberto Firmino. But given the choice where would, you, Rant’s readers spend the money?

Out of interest, Ed, who did you vote for?

Ed - June 16, 2015 Reply

Ha, I didn’t. Who would vote in this kinda nonsense!?

Haha, well quite!

FWIW, I voted for Morgan Schneiderlin – on the basis that UTD’s record without MC16 was appalling and, to the best of my limited knowledge, this guy would be the “best fit” in the inevitable phasing-out of Michael Carrick who is now approaching his mid-30s and has a pretty-lousy injury record these past few years.

My second-choice would be either Ilkay Gundogan or Sebastian Schweinsteiger – get the midfield right and I think that (gasp !) TheLads would be all-right with a healthy, returning back-four and, hopefully, TheWayneBoy can thrive with service from Depay, Mata, Herrera, and Di Maria. Well, these guys should score more than the “healthy, returning back-four” gives up !

No Pogba?

Pogba threw his toys out of the pram when Scholes came back. I don’t respect that.

If you want to play, and you think you’re better than Scholes, you have to prove it. Not hand in a transfer request.

Ever Banega is just the player we need in mid-field. The papers credited some interest from Moyes last January but the gossip stopped. There are clips on youtube. Two central defenders are needed as if it needed saying. Out of that list I voted for Hummels.

Rather a silly poll. Of course, it would be great to have Bale in our side. But it’s not going to happen. Just as we are not going to get Messi or Ronaldo. And that applies to just about all the others. So let’s look at what is possible: Yes, Lukaku would add a punch to our attack and he is still a youngster – but would Everton even consider letting him go. And what about young Dutch international Leroy Fer who showed his class in a very poor QPR side; Van Gaal must know a lot about his abilities; could he be a possible back-up to Carrick who unfortunately is showing his age.

Yeah, I’ll ask your permission before posting anything ‘silly’ again. You’d suck the fun out of a clown.

That’s a horrible mental image.
