I'm playing Man Utd and Ivory Coast and I've just started on my third season after failing to advance past the group stages in the Confederations Cup having finished 3rd below Brazil and Germany. I am looking to sell Fletcher and Carrick as they are both about 30-32 years old now and have not been consistent at all in the past season. I am also looking to sell Ashley Young. I would like to know if you could recommend a good left winger to replace Young and a central midfielder to replace Fletcher and Carrick. I've been looking at Diego Perotti for my left wing, but he doesn't want to leave his current club Arsenal.
What budget ?

Eduardo Salvio , Andrea Schurrle , Juan Manuel Vargas ,Dzsudzsak , Emir Bajrami perhaps ?

Ivan Rakitic , Sahin , Javi Martinez , Inler , or jack rodwell :p
I think I'll be allowing Young to stay because I simply can't find a good left winger at the moment...
yes that's what i'm talking about , in 34 years old ( i think ) in my save , he won Ballon d'Or once with Real Madrid , should considering not selling him
Thanks for the input :)

Meh, about 174 million.
Well with that kind of money, i would look at neymar or willian for your left wing. Gotze might also be nice to check out.

As for the midfield, are you only looking for a work horse then? Hamsik is a nice playmaker though he might a little old by now.

Also with that kind of money, why not try a bid on ronaldo and/or messi? It is possible to get them.
As for the central midfielder, consider Fellaini, Muamba..
I would look for Fellaini but I think he plays best as a defensive midfielder and my formations don't use any defensive midfielders... I'll be looking at Hamsik. Don't think it would be realistic to get Ronaldo or Messi to Man Utd actually... anyway I don't think any one of them are willing to leave. I did actually scout Cristiano Ronaldo and he wasn't willing to leave Real, or so my scout reported. I also checked out Neymar, Gotze, Felipe Anderson and none of them wanted to leave their clubs. Meh. I'll be looking at Hamsik...
I'm also looking for a quality center back who is young and won't complain about not getting enough playing time, to replace Rio Ferdinand who has retired...
eu acho q vc deve olha para Pastore tbm é um bom meia
T Muller seria um bom...tambem Iker Muniain um bom jovem para o futuro eu tenho ele titular do meu save com o Man City
Jovetic tambem é um bom jogador
Sorry mate... I only understand English...
Hazard for left wing is absolutely beast. A young quality CB that won't complain for playing time would be a high potential regen.
why dont you try antoine griezzman? he should have developed pretty nicely by that time :)

also check out kevin strootman for the midfield
Griezmann is really bad in my save. I don't know why. Hamsik's club is crazy and has demanded $123M for him and I'm not paying such an amount even if he and my new signing from Juventus Arturo Vidal could make a very threatening midfield partnership... Will be taking a look at Strootman, thanks :)

I paid Lille $55M for Hazard in the start of the 12/13 season (currently I'm in the start of 13/14) and I mainly use him as an attacking midfielder, he's completely wiped out Tom Cleverley's place on the team and he's a great attacking midfielder although a little inconsistent at times - named Players' Young Player of the Year runner-up, second only to Sergio Aguero...
Tried to get Mats Hummels for center-back... Dortmund refused to sell..
