Dying with hangover I decided to do my WAGNSSS, so here it is.
Lets start with the loaned players, from all of them I would just take back Lukaku, De Bruyne and van Aanholt. The first two for obvious reasons and the latter to compete for Bertrand for some minutes, and it would be good in case Ashley Cole gets injured. Depth is good. Ooh and Essien of course!
I would send Chalobah, Kalas and Omeruo to a premier league side, maybe to one which just got promoted and would send Loftus-Cheek to replace him at Watford. Piazon goes back to Malaga. Courtois goes back to Atletico de Madrid to get some Champions League experience. Ake goes to the eridivise or somewhere where he can get some regular playing time. The rest I don't really care as long as they can get playing time and keep developing.
I have a budget of 100 million pounds, but as I'm using transfermarkt price tags and they are in euros I converted it, so its around 117 million. Now let's do the shopping.
With just Cech available as both Hilario and Turnbull leaving at the end of the season, we should get a reliable back up for our number 1. I take Begovic from Stoke, he is really solid and would be amazing to have him as a backup. Price: 5 million.
I think that in our defensive department we are solid. Just need to get a partner for our David Luiz. I take Subotic from Borussia Dortmund, he is the one cleaning Hummel's mistakes up in their team, so he should be able to do the same with David Luiz's too. Besides he is pretty good, much better than what we have available. Price: 18 million.
Well, what can I say?? Our midfield is not good enough and that's clear. We need someone that can set the tempo of a game and pull the strings from midfield, but we also need some muscle. I'm not buying to suit a formation in particular but to have tactical flexibilities and to be able to adapt better to the opposition, just ask Barca how they adapted to Bayern.
To add muscle I take Fellaini from Everton, he is a powerhouse and we need someone to put Toure Yaya in his place the 28 times we play City a year. He is one of the best in the air, has great stamina and hair, and guess what?? He is belgian!! price: 28 million.
To regulate the tempo and to pull the strings, I take Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona. He is really good, young, and with tons of potencial. I think he is very capable of doing a great job here. His market value is 22 million but because of his lack of playing time his clause is 18 million until August, is a real bargain at that price.
For depth and potential I take van Ginkel from Vitesse, he is good and has an eye for goal. He is 20 and can learn a develop a lot, has great potential. Price: 6 million.
Here I take Schurrle from Leverkusen, I really like him and he is a young versatile player. He can be deployed as a winger, as a second striker or even as a main striker. He is fast and has a great right foot. He will be fighting right there for a starting spot. Price: 25 million.
As a striker option I take Chicharito from Man Utd, he is a real poacher and is something we don't have, he is always in the right place in the right time. I hate him, he is our kryptonite, but damn I would love to have ome of those on our team. He is used to the rotations system in Man Utd so I don't think there will be a problem for playing time. Price: 22 million.
All of them sum together 122 million, so I sell Marin for 7 million (sorry Marko, they left me no option).
So this would be our squad:
Goalkeepers: Cech, Begovic.
Right backs: Azpilicueta, Ivanovic.
Center backs: Terry, Luiz, Ivanovic, Subotic, Cahill
Left backs: Ashley Cole, Bertrand, van Aanholt.
Defensive midfielders: Mikel, Essien, Fellaini, Romeu.
Center midfielders: Essien, Ramires, Fellaini, De Bruyne, van Ginkel, Oscar(maybe), Lampard.
Wingers/attacking band): Hazard, Mata, Oscar, Schurrle, Moses, Ramires, De Bruyne.
Forwards: Lukaku, Chicharito, Torres, Ba, Schurrle
Too many for you? Send van Aanholt and van Ginkel on loan, and sell one of Ba or Torres for what they offer. I wouldn't.
With this squad we can play almost any formation we want. Personally I would love a 433 like this:
Azpi Subotic Luiz Cole
De Bruyne Fellaini Oscar
Mata Lukaku Hazard
And that's it, thank you for reading, hope you liked it :)
