WAGNH summer spending spree: how i'd handle things..

I am of the opinion that our team did not perform partly due to the fact that we kept insisting on shoe-horning our players into a formation that doesn't suit them. i believe with a 4-3-2-1 our team could have been way better. That would be the first thing i'll do when i take charge. with that out of the way its time to talk about personnel:

OUTS (permanent)

FERNANDO TORRES: While admitting that he has had a pretty decent season this year, i still don't see him as being good enough for us and i think it would be best if he'd just leave.. i think we could 15 to 20mill on him..

MARKO MARIN: i always wonder what could have been if not for his injuries. but i really dont think him staying would benefit us or him. 3mill

GARY CAHILL: gaz is a very decent defender, bar luiz that's what we have in our CB.. just decent players strength in depth but not quality, a quality defender is a priority, for that to happen someone has to make way.. cahill to me is our weakest centre back.. 5mill

RYAN BERTRAND: another player that i was hesitant to move.. i just feel ashley is at a stage where we should have a really clear picture of who is gonna replace him.. bertrand doesnt seem like hes the one. i think it would be best for his career to go to where he'd play regularly... 3 mill isnt bad for him.

Bruma ; one of those prospects who doesn’t look like he is ready for us… 3 mill

Benayoun, malouda and Paulo will be released of course.. thank you guys!

OUTS (loan)

Gael kakuta, Kenneth omeruo, josh mceachran, todd kane, Nathan ake, ruben loftus cheek, luke shaw, Nathaniel chalobah, piazon, thorgan hazard. I did not feel the need to explain them one by one cos all these players need experience that they can only get on loan..

ROMELU LUKAKU: is one player that confused me a lot. While I feel he’s ready to contribute, I feel he needs one more loan to smoothen out some rough edges in his game..

THIBAUT COURTOIS: one day, Chelsea will have to make a very tough decision of choosing between him and cech. I do not think that day has come yet.. we can afford to send him back to spain for one more season..


EDINSON CAVANI: ability wise, I do not need to explain this move as edinson is one of the best in the business now and with torres leaving we need quality up front so we can go back to being among europe’s elite.. I would pay 40million pounds for him..

YOHAN CABAYE: another player that would go into the first xi immediately, he would solve our midfield problems imo .. one might think is age is a problem, but I see it as an opportunity to have class on the pitch and give Oscar time to get used to the cm position (where I think he’ll eventually end up). 25 million pounds for Danielle.

IAGO ASPAS: aspas is a pacy striker/winger that would be a very decent option off the bench, he’d be great value for money and offers depth and versatility reports say a deal has been agreed with liverpool, but we could hijack it easily… 10 million pounds..

MARQUINHOS: a very good young centre back that would go straight into the team.. I’d reckon 30 mill would get him..

LUKE SHAW: a good young left back that has shown some interest in joining us, I say we sign him and loan him back to soton for the season… 7 mill..

ROBERT GREEN: could be tempted to a move after QPR's relegation…. 8 mill

Also I’d add PVA, KDB, and kalas to the first team:

PVA: ive watched vitesse a lot this season and I like what I’ve seen I think he’d be a good back up to cole and an upgrade from bertie..

KDB: massively impressed me and I think he’s ready, his versatility would get him games.

Kalas: with 7 defenders there’s the slot of sub right-back free (I’d end ivanovic as right back), kalas would be decent depth..

Essien: I feel he will be good cover and his experience will be vital



Azpi---------- luiz----------jt----------cole












Formation will be a 4-3-2-1 or 4-3-3, if we add moses, blackman and essien then we have a complete 25.. total spend of 120 million which the sales shall cover for.. that’s it.. I’m sorry if its poorly written.
