    There might actually be an interesting transfer deadline day again. It's looking like Cancelo will be our last arrival this summer through.

    I think we'd still take a centre half if the right player/deal can be found.

    Next summer we have Silva leaving. We clearly want to replace Otamendi as well. Ferna could leave. Sane will leave unless he extends his contract. Pep will want another Left-back if Mendy can't prove his fitness this season.

    So let's hope we don't get a transfer ban. The timing could not be much worse.

    There’s not a chance anyone else is coming in.

    If we bought someone, Bayern would immediately knock 40 mil off Sane bid and come knocking as we’d need a space. No chance.

    Time is really short now. The market for centre-backs has gone crazy this summer. I suspect we may hold out until January and hope things settle down by then. I just can't see us negotiating a reasonable deal in the time that's left. We'd probably need to trigger a release clause, which limits our options. Plus we'd need to sell.

    We have options at left back. Cancelo could play there. Angelino with improvement can do a job and we still have Zinchenko and Laporte if we were desperate.

    Rodri has come in to replace Fernandinho. Gundogan proved he can do a job there. De Bruyne is always an option. Bernardo and Foden are Silva's long term replacements. And we have a lot of options to cover Sane if he were to go. Mahrez, Bernardo, Sterling, Jesus, De Bruyne could all play out wide.

    The squad is in a good place if we get a ban. And we have young players who can step up if needed. No need to panic.

    We could manage, no doubt. But if we want to improve, we need to replace outgoing players. And just as Rodri replaces Ferna and Bernardo/Foden replaces Silva. We still need depth in the squad.

    Competition for the players replacing the outgoing players, if you will. :)
