Buy a CM in January or play this guy there, seriously.
I commented in the live thread, but that ending 3 v 2 where both Bentancur and Matuidi wanted absolutely no part of the ball, was so shocking.
If you watch Mario's goal you can see Cancelo *not* take the first easy pass to Ronaldo that would have put him in a bad spot, away from goal. Instead he actually drives the ball into the defence to suck 2 defenders and then passes. Look how much time Ronaldo then had to setup his next move.
We need a CM with these qualities.
Play him at CM and Cuadrado at RB vs. some Italian minnow teams and test it out or buy a fucking CM.
Unbelievable performance. Yeah a couple of dodgy moments defensively (that “clearing” header straight to an Inter player in particular) but still much improved from his inter days. Not much else to say about him going forward, he is absolutely fantastic. Skinned Asamoah beautifully in the first half and laid on an inch perfect assist for the match winning goal. Immense player and so far our signing of the summer.
