I just hope United do whatever they can and get Nunez in from Benfica. Ed without champs league, Do you think we have no chance of getting Darwin Nunez? Could he not be pursaded by a project or something? .


{Ed002's Note - It would make it difficult this summer.}

Thanks Ed,

I think it will be out of Kane or Lautaro we are going to push for if we can't get Nunez.

He has shown he's good in transitional play but seems like he's struggling in possession play style. Also his first touch is not good enough. Not to add his high price, it's very risky business.

Would it be any easier getting kane or martinez?

I assume they'll only be moving to champions league clubs as well.

{Ed002's Note - It is not quantifiable in terms of “easy”.}

Plenty of options in and out the squad next season if we can’t get someone like a Nunez.

Rashford can’t be Ray bad again with a proper coach, Martial might love him and be motivated, Ronaldo might stay? One of the young lads bagging 40 goals in youth football might get a chance?

Let’s get our scouts earning their corn and find a gem rather than the obvious of giving Lewandowski 500k a week to sign.

Kane is world class but I wouldn't buy him because of his age and probably super high price but he's so much better than Nuñez. Lautaro is also better but so far he was playing in system with two forwards, I don't think ETH will use the same system. What we need is complete striker, someone who has great technique and great finish, Nuñez is more physical. I'm not saying having his physical attributes is bad but I think his technique is not on high level.

The thing to remember is EtH isn't wedded to a particular type of striker. He has used Haller as a more traditional CF in this current Ajax side. Yet his last side had Tadic playing as a false No.9, and he got the the Europa League final and the UCL semi-final without a traditional No.9.

In our squad both Donny and Bruno could play as a false 9, with a little coaching I think Rashford could do well in that role too. While we have Ronaldo who may still be here next season who can play as a No.9.

Nkunku is another player we have been linked to who can play as a false 9.

So while in an ideal world we would get a complete striker this summer who is either world class or has world class potential, I can see an scenario where we sign a lesser known more of a gamble striker this summer and fill out the rest of the squad to suit EtH.

Both Liverpool and City have nearly 20 goals each more than any other side and neither play with a complete CF, in fact both play with more of a false 9 type striker.

Maybe the club can convince Dybala to join and he can play the false 9, or maybe there are other options, Jonathan David is another obvious option, Hlozek could be an interesting young option with lots of potential, or Myron Boadu.

Eric, with a proper coach ? I mean, Rangnick is a proper coach.

What Rashford is at, is way beyond "proper coaching"

Don’t agree Angel. Rashford’s issues are motivational, and with the exception of this season where everyone has been attractions bar Elanga and DDG can hold their heads up high, he has been our best player for years.

I agree that we can play with flase 9 but it needs to be technical player. Tadic has amazing technique, Liverpool plays with Jota on that position lately, he's not classic number 9 but has great technique. We can say the same for City players too. I wouldn't mind seeing Nkunku in our team, if we play Bruno there that's one less option in midfield. Dybala is amazing player but gets injured so often, I wouldn't go after him. David is very good and very talented, wouldn't be surprised if we try to get him since price won't be that high.

{Ed001's Note - Mane not Jota plays there now, Jota has poor technique.}

Mane plays there too but they switch. And I completely disagree that Jota has poor technique, he's not on the same level as Mane and Salah but still very good.

{Ed001's Note - ok you know best.}

Louis Suarez who knows a thing or two about goal scoring rates Nunez vvv highly and has urged his manager to sign him.

Firmino is excellent technically, Jota is closer to Aguero in his style.

Nuñez is perfect for Atletico. They very often play in 4-4-2 and he plays left striker in the same formation in Benfica. Simeone likes physical players.
