Ideal scenario would be to sell Ade & Defoe if there are offers and get Hernandez in and probably give chances to likes of Kane & Shaq.

Having said that, I can't see United selling Hernandez to us, given the kind of ambition we have shown till now. They would rather loan him to Athletico Madrid (who are after him), than sell to us.

We can't go into the season with just two out and out strikers. It will leave us too light and all it will take is one injury and we'll be on trouble, irrespective of all the attacking quality we're bringing in.

Kane bless him is just not going to happen for us. I think the Chamionship is his level at the moment and we're moving on in quality compared to seasons past.

From the dutch league? Maher, more pace, good pasning and more of a goal threat, and I think we need to add a bit more goals to the team. Different from Eriksen I know but think this guy will continue to grow. Otherwise a draxler, kovacic and some others. Hamsik would have been a dream but probably not realistic.
Eriksen has out scored Maher in every league campaign, so not sure why you think Maher is more of a goal threat. Eriksen is also faster than Maher from what I have seen and Eriksen creams Maher in the Assist charts too (and we need a creator).

Draxler is not realistic, he would cost 60m and he would reject us like he has other top teams. He would also be more of a Lamela alternative as he is a more direct goal scorer and less creative than Eriksen.

Kovacic goal scoring is not as impressive and he doesn't create as many chances as CE does.

Hamsik would be out of this world but he isn't realistic at all, as you said.

3 Strikers for one position is too much, what we need is someone who can also play there if required so essentially 5/6 players for the front three positions all interchangeable.

Chadli was bought in as a player who could play across the front line and up top, but given the current spending I imagine that the goal posts have moved in terms of the quality we want as a back up...

3 big names, no. but if the 3rd is a youngster who we genuinely believe will make the grade then 3 should work, almost like what the scum thought Vella would be for them. I'd love that to be Kane or another from the ranks but AVB will have seen enough of him to make that call. Personally I don't think HK is going to make it with us.
