park ji-sung lks to be a realistic and sensible buy. also micheal essien is very creativ as well. robinho is also a gd possibility.

as for the starting midfield, it would depend on the formation. if it was 4-4-2, then it will probably be Ronaldo, Keane, Scholes, Giggs. but hopefully it will be Ronaldo, Essien, Park, Giggs/Robinho.

essien is a defensiv midfielder isnt he? he plays ther for lyon neway.

if not him then sum1 lyk sydney govou (who can play anywhere) or xavi.

I don't think so but he could.

I doubt robinho can play well on the wing.

Essien is an unrealistic target for United cause he's gona cost 20mil pounds. Sigh if only Fergie had spotted his potential earlier on instead of askin Essien to be loaned out to Antwerp.


Besides, robinho is unrealistic too.

A realistic target (for now) is Javier Mascherano.

But if we're talking about playmakers, there's very few ready made playmakers out there in the market. All United can do is hope to play against some team with an exceptional player when they go on tour or in the CL qualifiers, just like how they picked up Ronaldo. This time it would have to be a playmaker.

No robinho is not a winger.
