    Its not though. I know you think it is too attacking but a front 3 of Jesus, Mbappe, and Sanchez and a midfield four of Sane, Sterling, Carvalho, and Silva is a real possibility under Pep.

    Add to that, I think Pep's statement that he didn't play them as wingbacks is semantics. If he played a back three with no fullbacks and did play two wingers; they by definition would play as wingbacks even if they were called wingers. Sane was constantly coming back to defend against Everton in October.

    The 3 names you mention seem to be genuine targets but I think we can expect at least another 4 on top of that. Some on the fhe forum got a bit carried away picking fantasy teams with 7 attacking players for some reason.

    You might have a point tbh.

    Didn't want to start a new thread but CW tweeted the other day we were looking at Corentin Tolisso. Superb for Lyon today. Sounds Juve bound though, frustratingly enough.

    He would be worth the money and I doubt money will be such a limiting factor this window considering there are reports that we're willing to spend £50m on 29 year old Bonucci and £90m on 18 year old Mbappe!

    GK, FB's, and a CB are absolute priorities first and foremost.

    If we don't sort those positions out this summer you can have Messi and Ronaldo added to the attack, we still won't win anything.

    Well, we probably would because we'd actually score from the chances we create!

    Only one of those 3 mentioned is a cert, you can guess who...

    We'll also spend more on what is needed, 2xfullbacks, 1xcb, 1xcm

    Any attacker is a replacement and won't be out of our pockets, so to speak!!!

    Fantastic player and hope the links are true. Versatile, tenacious and potentially world class. But if he was to come, who's place he would take? Fernandinho would be my guess but doubt he'll be out the door.
