That's the point to wanting to wait...

Think about it, you suggest that the team won't be as good next season/going forward yet somehow have faith this same group of players are good enough now to be a cup contenders. If the team is a legit cup contender now, it sure as hell should be 6 months from now.

As you suggest, there is little certainty that the team is 'real' enough to have that sustainable success going forward. If this team is just on some hot streak and will struggle next season, overpaying now for a deadline rental will do very little in propelling this club towards a cup. Hot streak cup wins are far too rare.
