If Maguire comes in, one or two will go. But the injury records of Jones Bailly and Smalling means they are hard to offload. 

Loving seeing the young squad take shape. We might surprise a few people this season. Certainly the bookies who have Ole chalked up as Fav to be first manager to go.

obviously not smart bookies - the first manager to go will be from Villa or West Ham given the money they have thrown around or maybe The Toon.

Every goal on tour was either scored or assisted by a player from our academy. 9 goals scored, and just 1 conceded.

Dybala swap for Lukaku is possible. Bruno Fernandes and Maguire also could still happen next week. Bailly out for 5 months. 

Forward options would be: Rashford, Martial, Dybala, Lingard, Greenwood, Sanchez, James.

Who's the striker? All wingers no?

Rashford will be playing down the middle but Martial can do that as well, as he did many times in his first season. 

But I think we will sometimes play with a forward three with the ‘no.9 striker’ being the deeper false no.9 role.

70 million bid for Harry fucking Maguire rejected by Leicester. 70! Don't know what's worse, wanting to pay that or rejecting it. Surely they can find someone better for that kind of money?

85 million bid accepted! Jesus fucking Christ.

The FFP reconciliation should be interesting given the amount of spending.

No they should be able to spend what they want. Man U is in no way defaulting on any loan or going bankrupt. That is what FFP was meant to be. Not the bullshit that is happening now.

I think Bailly would have gone for a decent fee but clearly not now, until January at least.

I would rather keep Smalling than Jones.

The price goes up when a player is a World Cup Semi Finalist.

Love the way Maguire’s thank you to Leicester tweet included a photo of the most important goal scored at Anfield over the last 29 years :D

Eriksen rumours but cannot see Levy selling him to united. Looking like Madrid can’t get anywhere near the £150M valuation of Pogba.
