I presume we are talking to the likes of a Fonseca or Tuchel/Favre behind the scenes. If they aren't ready to sign on the instant the season ends, then I snap Silva up immediately.You can't expect that off managers
My interview process includes 3 questions:
1) Will you commit to Mason Holgate at CB, and leave him the fuck alone?
2) Will you commit to Tom Davies is midfield, and leave him the fuck alone?
3) Will you commit to making young players (Lookman, Onyekuru, hopefully DCL too) a key part of your attacking rotation, and teach them in a positive manner?
You do need to emphasise we have lots of good players here already and they deserve game time but to single out players is nonsense
