Bit of a dilemma...

My current team is:
POTM Ibrahimovic
Hazard - SIF Eriksen - Mkhitaryan
Kante - Pogba
IF Alonso - David Luiz - Smalling - UP Valencia
Lloris

However, now MOTM Mkhitaryan has been released and is a CAM, a card I've been waiting for all year, I really want him. However, in order to afford him, I'm going to have to sell Pogba who I also really like.

Do I just stick with my team and hope I can afford him later? Or do I sell Pogba to get him? Which would present two further problems.

Who do I replace Pogba with? POTM Dele Alli? And who would I play at RM? Not sure I'd be able able to spend much on that position.

    What's your budget like atm? Mkhi will deffo drop tomorrow when the WL rewards are out, so maybe you could afford him then?

    Wait a few days at least, see when his price settles. I want that card myself, but will need to save for a few weeks with weekly rewards, unless I get lucky tomorrow instead of the usual discard packs.

    Well he's out for a full week, you definitely have some time to see where he settles at. But if he ends up somewhat around around Pogba's price coin wise, how much do you have to work with?

    Right now I don't have many coins, so would need to sell to buy. I'm assuming Mkhitaryan will drop atleast another 150-200k yet, which is when I'd look to start buying. Can't afford to at his current price (but he's only just been released).

    I'd be selling SIF Eriksen, NIF Mkhitaryan & Pogba, giving me around 650k in total. Minus Mkhitaryan's cost from that and that's what I have to work with :grimace:

    That would be the usual course of action, but with SBC Alli expiring tomorrow (best replacement for Pogba imo as an 'attacking CDM') then I need to put plans into motion now :weary:

    Dembele's good but he lacks that bit of quality Pogba and POTM Alli can bring

    Trust me Pog is huge in that role he'll be hard to replace, all those people saying Kante and another small cdm
    dont know how influential it is to have a bigman in that formation. Also mkh's High/high WR's might cause him problems in the cam role.

    This.

    I do agree that Pogba is hard to replace there, he's so influential in my team. Might wait a few days and see how I feel.

    Yea I mean Alli would only set you back like 50k~ or so after the packs at the worst, but he could be flat out bad, who knows lol.

    Maybe try out some different RMs and CDMs this week until about Monday or so to see where you're at

    Tbh I do often switch to the narrow variation IG, maybe I could just put IF Mkhi at RM then move him central IG? But would need a CAM who could play RAM.

    @SaifR Mkhitaryan is class, I enjoyed using him as a RM more than the pacey ones. I mean you will miss Pogba but I think attackers are more important.

    I'm myself waiting for his price to settle down so I can put him next to Ronaldo as I desperately need a left footed complete striker. I think tomorrow after rewards are out should be a good time to buy his card
