    Hope that's the type we go for, it's the only area of the pitch we are really light if Fern gets injured or banned, with the latter more likely.

    Would we be going for an aggressive box-to-box DM like Fernandinho, or a playmaker that's a good tackler like Alonso? Always liked Vidal but I don't think we'd get him.

    I think David Luiz is a good option and the most realistic. Can’t think of too many other CDMs who can also play CB.

    Bayern supposedly want rid due to his poor attitude. That said, he probably lacks the defensive restraint to play in the Fernandinho role.

    BARCELONA have reportedly apologised to Brazilian club Gremio after a picture of Arthur in a club shirt appeared.
    The 21-year-old is highly fancied to make a move to Europe and Barca are favourites to sign him.

    The La Liga giants had sporting director Robert Fernandez out in South America scouting Arthur for the last week.
    And a snap of Fernandez with Arthur wearing the famous claret and blue of the Catalan giants was posted online despite a deal not being done for the midfielder.

    Barca have already been told they will have to pay £44million for Arthur because of his release clause.

    I was going to suggest something left field and suggest a return of Jerome Boetang might be an option, seems Pep had the same idea once...don't think it went too well

    Max Meyer.

    This kid has been made into a great DM this season. I think he would be perfect for us. He is still only 21 and out if contract next summer.
