Brendan you have £80m to spend before transfer deadline

Recommended Posts

Imagine if Top says to Brendan - ' You agreed to become our Manager because we sold you our vision for making a substantial push in the Premier League towards the top four. This would necessitate a significant investment in our team. In keeping with our promise, the £80m we have just received for Harry is all your's to spend before transfer deadline day. We want a marquee signing to show that we mean business.Over to you Brendan'.

 

If you were Brendan, who would you splash the cash on, taking into account Top's requirement for this to be a 'marquee' signing that would smash our transfer record.

Tell Rudkin to walk into Bournemouth's training ground with a very big briefcase with £70m in it and tell them we're taking Fraser and Ake. Job done. 

And drop Gray off while he’s there

Marquee signing isn't always what a club needs; id rather sign lower key players, just as talented but without the ego and media circus to follow.

 

I'd look at signing a player like Fraser or Suso, attacking wingers who could add an extra dimension to our team. I'd then push to reinforce our centre midfield roles with a player, Suso would also fill this role.

How about a return for Riyad - it's a 'yes' from me

A no from me, he was a great player for us.

But he agitated way too much for a move, a move that is still working for him.

 

what stops him doing the exact same again.

Why Ake? He's in a shocking defence and we're going to be short of height at the back. Surely that would be madness?

If we're talking marquee signings we could make with £80m I'd be going after Gareth Bale.That's a position we could strengthen and would send shockwaves through the football world.

To be fair to Riyad, he wasted two years of his career during a period where we woefully under performed

How about Saul (the guy who scored against us for Athletico Madrid in the Champions League) - only problem is that we would then be overloaded with midfielders

So?
 

Why would that mean we can suddenly lure regular starters and key players from one of the best clubs in Europe lol ?!

Great player and would be delighted if he did sign (pretty unlikely) , but think I'd prefer us to go for a more direct winger with pace. 

 

We already have both Maddison and Tielemans who can play the slide rule passes like Ziyech can. Someone with a bit of running power with a threat in behind might mesh better with the way our team is put together.

In my opinion he's the next best defender outside the top 6 after Maguire. He is on the shorter side but theres a bit more to heading than just height. He's quick and surprisingly strong for his build and the numbers don't lie, he gets about...

I think he's a very good defender in a very poor Bournemouth defense. Stick him next to Evans with Chilwell and Pereira, he'd boss it.

There's a lot here but I think the key one to pick out is 0 errors leading to goals. Even Van Dijk has one of them and he's ment to be the best defender in the world! It doesn't matter how good you are, no one can be a one man defense.

I haven't really seen much of Jadon Sancho, but would he fit the bill?
