We need a left back to strengthen the attack. We need a left winger to replace Rashford. If we can extend iglahos loan we have 5 forwards for next season with one new signing.
Is Sancho better on the left wing or the right?
Really don't want him but the rumors are strong.
Our priority signing should be a centre back. Idk who we're linked with.
Why don't you want him Dozer? He's very talented, can score and creates chances. The stat for 2019/20 is that he was directly involved in 36% of Dortmund's goals. Add that to the 17 odd goals he has scored himself, that's a heluva contribution.
I also don't get your anti-Rashford shite. He has scored 22 goals with 10 assists in an injury hit season. Compare him to another left winger, like Sterling who scored 30 goals with 9 assists in a full, injury free, season. I'm really not sure where you are going to find someone to replace a lad from the Academy who is actually delivering. Ok, so his end of season was pretty poor but so that finger could be pointed at most in the United team.
We are very strongly linked with Gabriel @ Lille. I'd agree that CB and LB should be a priority but I don't think Ole or the Board share our opinion on this.
I've stated this many times before. I don't know much about the player but Dortmund players tend to be crap elsewhere.
They seem to shine only at Dortmund. Perhaps one or two have been successful elsewhere but the crap to good ratio is almost 100%.
And their profile at Dortmund was huge, look at Dembele, Goetze, Reus, Kroos, Kagawa, Mkhi etc... so many big names.
I think Dortmund have a good marketing team to add hype to the players who're performing well.
And the transfer fee for a person who's scored 17 goals is mental. Greenwood has had similar with far fewer minutes.
It's like buying a stock that's already been through a huge bull run. We've missed the train. We're better off buying like City and Liverpool; they get good players for decent sums most of the time. And we're buying crap like Pogba, Di Maria, Sanchez (wages), etc.
