    As there are little rumours going around for us to speculate on, who would you have signed in place of some of our weaker signings?

    Rules
    1. It has to be a player that was linked to us around the same time as the player you’d replace him with was signed.
    2. FFP is still in place, so no outlandish fees.
    3. Just assume that the new signing definitely wants to play for us and would only come here.

    For me I’d have brought in Dybala instead of Bony, and probably De Rossi for Javi Garcia.

    Bony instead of Dybala (if the reports was true)

    Jonny Evans instead of Laporte probably save a bob or two (including taxi fares)

    Benzema instead of Balotelli
    And obviously missing out on Hazard was another big one.

    I would have kept De Jong and Barry instead of Garcia and Rodwell (shocking business) and would have kept Adam Johnson over Scott Sinclair purely for football reasons although now for PR reasons, it was the right decision to sell him.
