    You'd have to presume Sandro would be on his way...which is odd as he's the better player. One of the most creative players in Europe in terms of chances created

    Shaw? Schneiderlin? 55m of rag money to Southampton in the last couple of years.

    I prefer Van dijk. Centre backs from abroad are risky. Van dijk has proven he's got what it takes to play in England.

    More likely than not, it's the Rag old head who is getting moved on.

    Of course, forgot about Evra but would Kolasinac go as back up?

    Not really, he goes to compete. Hell probably lose and share. Just like Sandro shared with Evra last season.

    Besides his versatility suggest he might get time at LCB in a 3 CB formation.

    There would be enough opportunities and Kolasinac is not of the caliber to demand a starting spot. That is probably reserved for Alaba, Marcelo, and maybe Alba. I doubt there are any other LBs in the world who could demand starting if they moved.

    Well according to the stats Otamendi is the best Centre Half in the League, But he is clearly a doer and not a leader. My only issue is his going to ground and he really has stopped doing this a lot.
    John Stones can play as a 2nd Centre Half or as a DM (for the formation switches that Pep Likes). Kompany will only ever be a reserve CH/RB/DM for us as far as I can see.
    That means we need One Centre Half and that is Virgil Van Dijk. He was sublime against Liverpool last night in the LC Semi Final 1st Leg. Premier League experience is vital so, for me, we break the bank. Both Van Dijk and Otamendi would be a wall of death for the opposition to break down.
