I like this idea, we attack with 6 and defend with 6
If we sign cancelo I see white on the bench about as frequently as stones has been for city.It's a bit copycat of Pep, but who cares. I just don't see him demoting White to the bench. He's shown himself to be an outstanding player for us & is super reliable & stays fit !
Havertz hasn’t worked out under several managers though. I really dislike this trope of “saving” broken players, because it seldom works out.I think he’s incredibly talented and there is untapped potential there, who in the right set up, could thrive. From an attacking point of view, I really like the idea, but from a defensive point of view, I can’t see it working.
Having both Havertz and Ødegaard is CM is too light. They both work hard, but are both half hearted in their duels.
I honestly don't think it's that deep. Bringing in Cancelo you get very good options at both LB and RB. With a minimum of 46 games across comps next year and likely at least 52+ games, going up to 63 games if we are fortunate (though unlikely).Dropping White would be a major surprise. If we are looking to bring in Cancelo, he is possibly thinking along these lines...
White. Saliba. Gabriel
Cancelo. Rice Zinny
Saka. Jesus. Martinelli
