depending on next Wednesday result reckon we'll get greizmann (if we win). its a rumor that will run all summer

other than that possibly another striker, be surprised if lukaku isnt linked. mourinho likes a big target man striker to lead the line. and a left back will probably be signed also

Reports 8nnspain of De Gea to Madrid gathering momentum. Apparently they have agreed to pay up Navas' two remaining years

As for 8ncomings at Old Trafford i see a centre forward (potentially two), a winger, a centre back, a left back. Think this could be a record breaking transfer window for total money spent

do think there was a bit of a gentlemans agreement with de gea when his contract was running low, bit like ronaldo. got him to sign a contract and have another year but we will sell him and pocket some nice money from Madrid.

were getting linked with schmeichel, but i wouldn't overly fussed about keepers. ive been fairly impressed with romero whenever hes played

Yeah. I wouldnt resent him for it

Romero is a strange one. Doesnt exactly fill me with confidence. Good shot stopper but his decision making needs to improve. But i dont see schmeichel as an improvement on romero in the slightest and mourinho seems to trust him. Only really oblak or neuer id go for to replace De Gea (i know buffon is in that same tier but he'll likely retire if juve win champions league)

Must say the press have been driving me crazy. Sure they think we're playing Football Manager with the data editor switched on

Think of the players we've been linked to id like griezman and chicharito in attack, hirving lozano on the wing, gaya at left back

Unsure on centre back. The odds on seems to be Lindeloff but i dont know that much about him

Pretty hard for attacking players to flourish at Madrid really - considering you're constantly in Ronaldo's shadow. He's a very good player, and he has the potential to be world class, but I don't see how he fits into Utd unless Jose is going to play a tad more expansively next year

Well, you think thats exciting! We're close to bringing up our average age, so low in our defence especially, with the signing of Zabaleta. Roma may sneak in for him though

Summer is always maddening

Be interesting to see what Chelsea do this summer. They definitely need to strengthen playing in the CL again.

I expect Costa to go to China, which will mean Lukaku/Morata in + maybe 1 more. Upgrades at Wing back needed, as Moses and Alonso have ceilings. Bakayoko from Monaco linked to play in the middle with Kante.

Think liverpool have agreed an £8m fee for a scottish left back from Hull. Unsure of his name though

Aye Olly, we'll what happens when and if we do sign him. I think Mourinho got hos sognings spot on last summer so happy to trust him. As you say though we need to be a bit more expansive with our style. If it does happen though. What becomes of Mata?

Michael Keane back to Man Utd for £25m seems likely now. Should see Jones out the back door. Still don't think it really solves anything for United, they still would need an CL experienced defender signed.

Keane, Smalling, Bailly & an injured Rojo is pretty awful.

Financially the Keane move makes sense as we have a sell on clause with him.

As John points out we need at least 1 more centre half. Can we get better than Keane for the fee touted?

Lot of talk about James, complete luxury/vanity signing but I think he is a terrific player so am happy enough to take the risk.

Young, English and Above average? Burnley should hold out for the £49 Million we got for Sterling....

Would be a decent signing, assuming it would be Bailly and Keane starting pair.

Haven't seen enough of Robertson, but seeing as we have had an ageing CM at LB all season I expect us to be linked with every LB going.

All the talk out of the club is that Milner will be first choice left back next season. Moreno is likely out of the door and then we'll bring in a young player to replace him. Probably Ryan Sessegnon at Fulham.

As good as Milner has performed out of position I still feel our performance suffers not having a proper LB there. Ryan Sessegnon is what, 17/18? Would mean Milner being starting LB for more than one more year in my eyes....

I think the sell-on clause is a big influence - can get a decent PL centre half who fits in quota wise for 25% less than market value.

Or more likely we get him above his market value because of the sell-on clause, being English and generally being Manchester United means we pay more.

Relative market price. Overpaying for English players is market price, in that context.

Troy Deeney is being heavily linked with a move to either Birmingham or Leeds United. That's surprising, Leicester only put in a £25 million bid this summer and he's been reasonably successful in the Premier League, you'd have thought other sides would be interested. I know he fell out with Walter Mazzerazi, but he's gone now so seems weird that he'd leave over that.

Lacazette to Atletico is an interesting one, given that at present they are not allowed to sign anyone.

Will he wait and see what happens with any appeal, or make a different move to someone who can definitely buy him

And a bid for Iheanacho, apparently.

I'd still just rather take Negredo and accept a half-decent striker is all we will be able to get.

There is actually a few strikers that West Ham could take a look at this summer. 

Alvaro Negredo - did quite good at Middlesbrough in a tough situation
Jermaine Defoe - former Hammer, scored 15 goals last year, would be a one year option at best though really
Michy Batshuayi - surely will leave Chelsea considering the lack of faith put in him by Conte, would be a good signing, imagine there may be competition from abroad though and maybe from better sides, perhaps a loan move isn't too unrealistic. 
Fernando Llorente- did well at a struggling Swansea side but may be too similar to Carroll?
Troy Deeney- looks to be leaving Watford, he's scored goals for the past two years, older and may stand out at Watford because of his importance to the side. Better as a partner than he is as the main forward. 
Daniel Sturridge- If he leaves Liverpool I'd be surprised if West Ham don't at the very least enquire. May not want another injured striker from Liverpool though.
Loic Remy- Struggled at Crystal Palace after injury but as a potential cheap signing he's not bad for a shout. Scored goals for QPR, Newcastle and Chelsea in his first year. 

I'm sure there are a few others that I'm missing, but actually think that this year there a few decent options for West Ham on the market.

Also talk of Michy Batshuayi being a makeweight in a Chelsea offer for Lukaku.

Having said that, there are also rumours of Tammy Abraham being a makeweight instead, which I find hard to believe

I'm so "meh" about so many of them. Negredo has been underrated this season and for a while, Defoe id only want as back up. Deeney the same.

Batshauyi and Iheanacho are the only domestic options that I could see being really exciting from the domestic options.

Although a small part of me wants to see us sin Wilshere, Sturridge and Phil Jones to join Carroll and see if he can have the most expensive injured wage list possible.

Griezmann says there is a 'six out of ten' chance he joins Man Utd this summer.

Basically it's done, just sort out the transfer ban & win the Europa League. Replacement is Lacazette
