Nunez is a 6’2 lump. Klopp wont play him otherwise he would have kept Benteke

Christopher Nkunku is the better option
Just because he’s tall, doesn’t make him a lump. Lewandowski, perhaps Klopp’s greatest ever signing is about the same height. Not to mention Klopp was very complimentary about him earlier this season when we played Benfica.

With the way TAA and Robbo whip in the crosses, it could be advantageous. However, at the price being pushed around we won’t get near him.

I will admit though I’ve only seen him play about 30 minutes (he looked quite dangerous to me) but if you blokes have seen him play a few times then I will take your word for it. It’ll be interesting to see where he goes next.

we are apparently in for him so maybe there is something there, he clocked the fastest speed in the CL group stages, 3km faster than Mo

at 22, he, jota, diaz, elliott and carvallo are the future

Nkunku is the one, but the minute someone makes a bid, PSG will activate their buy back clause

Nkunku is my number 1 choice for United but im warming to the idea of Gianluca Scamacca as a left field cheaper option.

there is literally no point in bidding on Nkunku as PSG will just buy him back

scamacca is good, but you guys need a new GK and defensive line before buying forwards

Thats true about Nkunku. But they definitely need to sign a striker. Ronnie’s they’re only recognised 9 with Cavani gone and Greenwood in limbo, unless they fast track McNeil.

As for the defence, the Timber deal is close apparently, there was some issues with Timber worried about not playing regularly but Ten Hag has apparently allayed his concerns. They’re linked with Torres……..AGAIN. Varane’s fantastic, but the obvious injury issues are there. Maguire will not work in Ten Hag’s system. Tuanzebe and Bailly are on their way out, Lindelof is good on the ball and his long passing is usually very good, but he gets bullied out of the game a lot and is useless in the air.

They’re looking at a RB as well. Shaw and Telles will be the LB’s again because they want to bring Fernandez through to take Telles’s spot in the coming years.

who is timber? what happened to AWB? united fans were telling liverpool fans online he is 1000 times better than trent

Timber: Ajax and Dutch International. Very good defender that can potentially make the step up under Ten Hag.

AWB: OK first of all I didnt say that so I dont know what you want me to say about that, although I did say he was defensively very good but regressed this year, I never said he was overall better than TAA, also if your taking a rival club fans opinions on twitter seriously about whether they’re RB is better than your RB, then thats on you. (Harsh lesson I learned as a Sydney FC fan, no one is interested in offering fair and balanced opinion about your team if your team is successful) Don’t listen to rival fans on twitter because most of them only banter for some kind of imaginary online clout, you’ve been on twitter long enough, you should know that.

Sounds like it’s almost confirmed.

Yeah he’ll be yours. United will say they’ve pulled out, but thats just the usual spin from the club, he knocked them back because of no Champions League. Im alright with us missing out, its a big chunk of the budget to put into him when we need to invest in other areas. (GET A ****ING 6! WE’VE NEEDED ONE FOR AT LEAST 3 YEARS) I’d like Nkunku as the attacker signing, but he’s probably out of reach and too expensive, plus the PSG buy back issue, I hope United go for Scamacca instead.

Yeah I'm a big Juve fan. We're in shambles not only in the Champions League. Injuries to big stars like Chiesa and Pogba not helping either. Should have done everything to keep Dybala, now he's killing it at Roma. Calls for Max Allegri's head already, again.
