A couple of days ago the press was rife with "United trying to sign Manolas" rumours.

Then today it turns out Roma are negotiating a new deal with him.

Sound familiar? Never trust the press, wait until a player is photographed holding up the shirt posing with the manager or chief executive. Even then don't totally trust it, I can still remember the images of John Obi Mikel in a United shirt.

As tough as it is, don't buy into it. Don't give them reason to continue printing rubbish, building up your hopes for nothing than their financial gain. Let's have a window where we ignore the press. We all know after all that we aren't likely to sign anyone this window.

The only thing of any truth or accuracy in a modern newspaper is the date and I even check that.

Apparently Roma have FFP problems and they have a business model of selling older stars and replacing them young players with potential. I’m not sure how true that is so maybe somebody could correct me.

I like Manolas and at the price of £36m it’s a good deal. But I feel we should be going for the top tier of cbs with koulibaly, skriniar, alderweireld. Signing Manolas and let's say koulibaly would be counter productive imo. Especially as it would block tuanzebe’s progress and game time.

But I agree with shappy, Manolas is probably angling for a new contract. He’s recently signed with raiola and I wouldn’t want us to make the same mistake and go into bed with him again. We should have learnt our lesson from previous dealings. Unfortunately newspapers are all garbage today and the only reliable news is found on this site.

I think we all read them shaps but i think only the most naive belive them.
Today its coutinho, yesterday manolas the day before koulibaly.
The list goes on and all the way back to sniejder and all those before him.
With the internet being what it is and with twitter being what it is there is practically no credible news sources left.

LOL. there is another tonight from boot room about why Liverpool do not need to battle us for the signing of Militao as they already have enough right backs. Why buy another. because he plays CB maybe haha. 17 games played this year and all at CB. they just write what they want snappy.

Shappy do you remember Aaron Ramsey news? I think even our website reported he was our player.
