    South stand level 3.
    How much have we to play with realistically. Read something about PL FFPR and us not being able to spend a lot? I know that’s all relative but will it be enough for say Sanchez and a CH or choice of one?

    Probably enough to get Sanchez. He's been the only target the club has been vocal about.

    He's bringing Chewbacca with him.

    we'll have enough for Sanchez and a CB, but hence why we're linked to multiple CBs and trying to haggle as much as possible.

    Ive always felt that signing a player in January is a sign of desperation , but obviously the Jesus injury puts a different slant on things . From being ambivalent about Sánchez , it’s starting to make sense . I think the United interest is a ‘ red herring ‘ and nothing more than a spoiler.

    I think of more interest is where we might go in the Summer : some of the players linked with City make absolute sense : Inigo Martinez , centre half at Real Sociedad.
    Philip Max, left back at Augsburg
    Fred, defensive mid at Shakhtar Donetsk
    Jean Michel Seri, attacking mid at Nice
    Kalidou Koulibaly, centre half at Napoli , ditto Faouzi Ghoulam at Napoli

    ( I’m genuinely struggling to come up with a home grown talent that would be genuinely available or even bring anything to the table, although Tarkowski and Mee have been outstanding ) Throw in a summer bid for a Dybala, Icardi or a Lewandowski and we could really push on from a League title which is ours to lose. We need to strengthen the squad , otherwise we’ll make the same mistakes of recent years when we’ve had our boot on the throats of rival teams and took it off. Guardiola doesn’t strike me as a manager to think he’s got anything near the perfect squad of players at the moment . This City set up will get better and better which will only make rivals around us more desperate. Any thoughts ?

    Sanchez is probably the only logical player to buy in this window and I'd wait for the summer for the rest. Seri is a good shout. I wonder if he's good enough to play Fernandinho's role.

    Sam Lee’s latest article regarding Sanchez and United’s interest claims that we’re also trying to tie up a 3rd player (after Sanchez and Evans) who would arrive in the summer. Is he referring to the player Mullock was talking about a few weeks ago?



    Who is the mystery player??

    Most likely to be Fred or Weigl, strongly linked with both in a position we need to strengthen but both cup tied in the Champion's League so a January move makes less sense than a Summer one.

    Isn't he more of an attacking mid? We already have 6 for 2 spots. Plus we can register one player from the Europa and that looks likely to be Sanchez.
