    James Maddison remains United’s priority target to play at No10, meaning Fernandes is likely to be deployed as a No8 and pivot alongside Scott McTominay in what would be Solskjaer’s ideal midfield three next season.
    McTominay---Bruno
    Maddison

    That'd be a quality midfield 3 if Bruno adapts well to the league and we can actually do a deal for Madders

    It works with Grealish too remember, if we can't get Maddison.

    It still wild to me that Fred has been dribbled by 54 times. That’s more than any other player in the squad by quite a margin. Next highest is James with 28.

    3rd highest in the league behind Moutinho and Buendia. I know he’s not strictly a CDM, but still has more defensive duty’s than anything really.

    Can’t wait to see Pogba, Mctominay, and Fernandes line up this season...feeding Rashford, Martial, and Greenwood.

    Agreed. It'll be great in the games where we know we'll have space for James to run into as well, that midfield should be great against most opponents and with any group of our front 3

    Maguire isn't even getting 50% of the criticism Victor have gotten.
    If you ask me, they're the same lvl. Maguire is twice the player in the air, Victor is twice the player when it comes to football intelligence.
    But he is english, so instead of replacing him with Tuanzebe we should praise him like he is the best thing that happened to us.

    Maguire is good but full of mistakes. He isn't world class but he got his best years infront of him.
    Our back 4 is better then it been for years and can't argue against that. It's all down to Lindelöf improving, the entrance of AWB, Maguire & Williams.
    Maguire seems to be a leader according to everyone in the club and that it was makes him more valuable. Because as a player, he isn't anything special but if he is a leader then he is well needed.

    I mean theoretically, Pogba pays for Maddison.

    If Ole prefers Maddison, we should be able to get him.

    Also, Bruno plays primarily 10 for Sporting.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see our pursuit for Maddison and/or Grealish cool a bit if Bruno hits the ground running there.

    James Robson posted an article today that suggests Bruno's long term future at the club is as an 8 with Maddison/Grealish as a 10, with Bruno only playing at 10 in the short term.

    Whoscored has him playing 11 matches at 10 and 10 matches at 8 this season.

    I think it's a manager's call situation and Ole seems to be calling him an 8 long term.

    I do think he'll start at 10 this season though given we still have Le Sulk and Andreas is poor

    If we get beat by Liverpool on Sunday, announcing Bruno after the game it would soften the blow.

    McTominay - Bruno
    Mata

    Wouldn't mind something like that against low defence teams.

    That's CB4 sorted for next season then.

    Given Smalling, Jones, and Rojo look set to leave, I doubt this is just a "save his value" extension. He'll be here.

    Happy with that if he can stay injury free and get back to form he showed in first season. He will easily be our starting cb again

    Our best CB when fit and inform imo. Don't believe he can stay fit but there is always hope.

    He's incredibly highly thought of from what I've read over recent weeks from people who have seen him play, the club must really agree if we're prepared to spend that much on him. Sounds like a serious talent

    from various football manager saves can confirm he will be very good

    Don't agree with this at all. Think Bailly will be 4th choice. 3rd at best.

    Can't see him cracking the starting 11, even if he stays fit for 3 years straight.

    I’m sorry but just no. Lindelof is like a lost puppy without Maguire next to him. Look how bad he was against City the second time. Lindelof has improved from his early season form but he’s still the weakest link in that back 4. Bailly and Tuanzebe both deserve a chance next to Maguire.

    Do agree with this though, Mata has shown his worth against low block teams all season.

    Also looks like we at least tried for Grealish. Hopefully we get him in the summer for less if and when they get relegated. Can’t blame them for wanting to keep him though.

    Was just about to post this. I think we'll be back in for him in the summer, they were almost certainly not going to sell in January. I really hope we get him in the summer, big fan of him.

    He hasn‘t played much because he was injured
