    he would be an amazing signing, and a better option than thiago, but we really need a midfielder and singing cesc would make us a massive firce to be reckoned with. But him coming is unlikey but maybe rvp can convince him… add fellani along with cesc and then we are golden ;)

    I would be happy with Fellani and Fabregas. This will give us power and poise to our midfield, which we need.
    If we keep Rooney, we will be in pretty good shape for the new season. The idea of spending £20m on Baines is stupid. Yes he is good player, but we simply do not need him.
    Sell Bebe, Macheda and wait to see what happens with Bale, maybe next season.

      @Stephen: I think more realistic signings would be Fellaini and Modric. And both would be an upgrade to everything we have in the middle. Fabregas I think is just a smokescreen!

      A middle three of Modric, Felliani and Carrick would be very solid and can hold against any midfield on earth! We can play three in the front with these three in the middle.

    All this apparent scrambling to bring in a big name, 30M midfielder makes the Pogba fiasco look even more bizarre. At least Moyes seems to recognize it’s a problem, even if his top targets are probably not realistic. Clearly we’re now in reactionary mode after years of failing to scout, or attract/ retain the best youngsters.

    Im not too sure about Fellaini if im honest. A good player without question, but for £23m I think id want something more than just good.
    He’s a physical presence, which is certainly something we’ve lacked at times the last few years, but then he does seem a bit of a dirty player, his passing isn’t anything to write home about, and most of his 5 years in the PL has been spent as an AM rather than a CM, so do we even have a lot to go by to determine hes good enough to play in CM for a prolonged spell?
    As I say im just not sure about him and for the money hes likely to cost, I think there are probably better options elsewhere.

      @tonymontanna4united: With Fellani, we know what we are getting. He is used to the Premierhip and could be our version of Yaya Toure. With the Belgium, Moyes has said he will end up a holding midfield player, rather than further forward. My concern is I do not want us to be the new Everton, if we sign feckin Baines, then I can see up playing log ball, which Everton did.
      On the plus, Fellani can put his foot in am dicate games more. We have played on the fringes for too many seasons now and against Chelsea we were totally out played in the centre of midfield.
      I can’t see us getting Fabregas, but a player like him would be ideal. You cannot blame us making a bid, but it was a long shot.

    Alex Song is a more realistic target.

    Or we buy no one and play Adnan Januzaj in the middle. The boy has got skills.

      @The_Philosopher: He doesn’t have the skills to play in the middle yet, he’s 18 years old and still wet behind the ears.
