Rumors about us selling Pjanic in the summer
But anyway Pjanic or Bentancur isn't the main focus.
you should question me about why 4-3-1-2 rather than 4-3-3 or whatever.
The point is Dybala. Dybala is a striker. Shoudn't drop to midfield to start the action. He should be up there with Ronaldo or Mandzukic for whoever you want.
Anyway just a messy dream of mine.
Having THAT midfield (sub Pjanic if you like) with Pogba and Ndombele providing quality and engine would be awesome. Having Fekir has a link between midfield and attack another wet dream of mine. Some would rather call James Rodriguez or Isco but imo Fekir is a more wide product specially in the goal zone.
Too bad that Mercato would be expensive and would make us sell someone.
Namely Pjanic or Dybala probably Dybala.
As Lyon is fecking expensive shop and demostrated that can hold players like Fekir for years.
Even with international interest from big and rich teams.
De Ligt gonna cost us lung and half (as we say in Italy)
Pogba even more than De Ligt
So it's an impossible market unless Jeep renew the contract for 70-80m per year from the currently 18-20m/year XD
Midfield certainly isn't and people are worried that it's our weak point as is. Starting lineup isn't either imo. Bench probably is better. It's basically Alex Sandro vs Marcelo, Pjanic vs Tonali/Bentancur/Can and Mandzukic/Dybala vs Icardi.
Even when we play Dybala out of position (attacking midfielder or right wing), he is still more effective than either Costa or Bernardeschi.
Time and time again it has been shown that we play better when Dybala is on the pitch. With Dybi we are much better at penetrating teams down the middle. Without him, we resort to aimless crossing and abysmal football.
The problem is that we don't know how to play attacking mids, SS or wingers. We know how to overload a midfield and throw in a ton of random crosses, which only tall strikers benefit from. Then when we see that Dybala, Costa, Cuadrado, Berna don't score in our weird system, we want to sell their asses and get a Mandzukic, Pjanic or Matuidi more.

We have some of the absolute best attacking talent, but we are ready to get rid of it all (Dybala, Costa, Cuadrado, Sandro) to get some new random young Italians. It's the same every season.
