Ornstein saying that spurs are close to signing Reguilon. that's another one off the list 🤣.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 19:19:24
Yup. Romano just confirmed Spurs have lodged an official bid.
Maybe another one to scratch off the list.

15 Sep 2020 19:27:35
Maybe the fact madrid wanted a buy back in the deal has made united walk away.

Plus we have shaw and williams.

15 Sep 2020 19:32:25
Romano said this afternoon we were closing in on a deal. Not going to lose sleep either way over Reguilon.

15 Sep 2020 19:42:47
He probably in the future wants to be Madrid's left back to. so we would be better walking away from the deal if he's just waiting for Madrid to buy him back one day. Maybe put time into developing Williams.

15 Sep 2020 19:44:31
Caolan its nothing but an expensive loan by the sounds of it.

15 Sep 2020 19:47:27
Problem is shaw can’t stay fit and think Williams is better as Rb cover, he got badly exposed in games near the end of last year. Also don’t think we really have a backup for AWB adding another LB would enable Williams to switch. However it is what it is.

15 Sep 2020 19:54:46
AWB looked shattered post-lockdown and can't attack.
Shaw is injured half the time.
Williams is a right back playing out of position on the left.

We needed someone like Reguilon even more than a right winger IMO. Will be angry if he goes to Spurs.

15 Sep 2020 20:03:10
As Ed002 said Telles was first choice, in any case not Reguilon. In my opinion maybe he is a better choice too. I would prefer Telles or Mycolenko. I think the Ucranian is one of the best crossers in the game.

15 Sep 2020 20:06:51
Forgot to add I agree we shouldn’t accept the buy back so if that was a necessity for the deal then ok to say no.

15 Sep 2020 20:06:54
Laird is a fantastic prospect lads. Reguillion would have been a reactionary signing with not a lot of planning and as Scott had said, nothing more than an expensive loan.

15 Sep 2020 20:31:54
Reguilon was voted La Liga's best LB this year.
He can put in excellent crosses into the final third which none of our Fullbacks do regularly.

We really need an attacking fullback who can put proper crosses into the box.

15 Sep 2020 20:54:54
Spurs close to Bale aswell apparently, ah well.

15 Sep 2020 21:17:20
Romano saying he wants to play for United, but there's always Telles lined up, so not the biggest drama if he doesn't come to United. Glad Bale is likely going to Spurs, Grealish and Bale being scratched of the list the same day is not bad.

15 Sep 2020 21:17:23
I am not sure TRD but i think crosses is not the strongest part of his game. I think that he is more of a dribller which with runs creates space for others rather a crosser of the ball. I think that Telles provide better crosses and i also think that Vitally Matyvenko is a great crosser, the closest i have seen to Robertson.

15 Sep 2020 21:24:28
If Tellas was first choice and is available for a rumoured £20 million, why have we been negotiating with Real for Reguilon for so long, maybe Tellas isn't first choice.

15 Sep 2020 21:32:47
I’m not sure it makes sense unless it’s a bargain.

We have Shaw and Williams and so it would be one and one out. More pressing matters in Sancho and other opportunistic bits with Thiago and maybe Telles (again creates problems) .

Would like us to pay up and get Sancho in NOW.

15 Sep 2020 21:33:01
im really glad we aren't getting bale that would have been a disaster just got rid of one injury prone mercenary don't want another.
We definitely need to get a leftback and a CB if this board can manage it that is.

15 Sep 2020 21:39:17
Telles was an option, Regulion wasnt but became. Ehen Madrid decided to cash the player he became an option.
But it was Telles who we scouted and we wanted in case we decided to buy a left back.

15 Sep 2020 21:46:55
I feel Reguillon is playing in a stronger league and at 23 has higher potential than Telles.
He has earnt a spanish cap recently.

Most of all, he impressed against us in Europa.
Ran up and down the pitch whole game.

15 Sep 2020 22:02:05
Or maybe we aren't after a left back, centre back and Rw are priority tbf.

16 Sep 2020 05:20:09
It has been reported that Reguilon does not want to leave Real permanently without a buy-back clause. don't know how true it is but I think eds have stated that Spurs are more open to a buy back than us.

Who is his Vitally Matyvenko you mentioned? Even google doesn't seem to find him lol.

16 Sep 2020 07:27:07
Vitaliy Mykolenko is a 21 year old highly rated Ukrainian left back playing for Dynamo Kiev. He looks a great player.

16 Sep 2020 08:43:52
utd road luke shaw is one of the worst left backs in the league and always injured .
i don't think. i can go another season of watching him continually getting sucked inside leaving his side totally exposed we need a decent left back more than a right winger.

16 Sep 2020 09:57:40
Would you rather play for Spurs playing Europa League or Manchester United playing Champions League. I don't think that we were ever serious about buying him and the same with Bale. All the money is going towards the Sancho deal, that's the transfer United want.

16 Sep 2020 10:39:55
I've a question for all of you that want us to sign regulion, how many of you actually wanted us to sign him prior to the el latter stages? How much have you actually seen him play? I've seen him a few times this season and yeah he looks good going forward, but I don't think he's as good as people are making him out to be. Real wouldn't be open to selling him otherwise. I think a fit Shaw is better than him. Shaw and rashford seem decent when played together and we look a better side, Shaw opens up space for rashford and brings the width when rashford cuts in most of the time.

16 Sep 2020 10:49:25
The deal for Regiulon to Spurs seems to have been agreed.

I can’t say that I’m too bothered as I don’t think signing a new LB should be anywhere near a priority, but if Ole wanted him, it doesn’t look good that another target has slipped through EWs fingers.

At this rate I can see us panic buying someone like Dembele on deadline day for an obscene fee.

16 Sep 2020 10:54:52
Dannyc well said my man.

16 Sep 2020 11:57:49
redseven don't know how you can possibly say LB is not a priority shaw is always injured and he cany attack or defend i'm sorry but i think he's terrible and brandon williams is a right back not a left back.
Theres at least 10 teams in the premier league that i can think. of with a better left back than luke shaw there is probably more if i was to go through them team. by team.

16 Sep 2020 13:23:00
Scott if you think Luke Shaw is one of the worst left backs in the league I have to disagree with you there. He's probably our most improved player since the turn of the year. he's made more appearances in the last two seasons for us than he ever has. I think he is maturing and improving to become an important player for us. When he got injured in the southampton game I don't think we looked the same team without him.

16 Sep 2020 15:23:37
Damon86 Lyke shaw has played 156 games scored 1 and 7 assists if you or even worse the club think that's acceptable then i'm afraid that were in even bigger trouble than we think.

16 Sep 2020 15:38:30
The standard has to be raised.

Look at Robertson of Liverpool.
What an engine the guy has and how much he contributes to the attack.

16 Sep 2020 16:19:13
I’d say we need someone in at left back, if telles is that man, then go get him. Shaw isn’t dependable from an injury and positioning point of view. And Real Madrid letting Reguilon leave is a surprise, as was selling Hakimi. I think we need to decide on a plan. If signing prospects with the determination and drive to play for Man Utd is our way forward we should commit to that. That being the case the Kiev player fits the philosophy better. As would scratching Sancho (who will only be coming for the money) . Keeping greenwood out wide, getting in an alternative to rotate. Think Edouard should be signed to bolster centre forward position. I know a lot of people feel Scotland is a weaker league. But if we had signed van dijk and tierney at some stage as our prospects, we could have been sorted for years. For me, mykolenko, upemecano and Edouard, along with Donny would be an outstanding transfer window.

16 Sep 2020 17:53:27
“Rashford plays inside and Shaw bombs outside him? ”
Really? On what planet does that ever happen?

The problem with our left hand side is completely the opposite. Rashford plays far too wide and Shaw far too narrow.

16 Sep 2020 19:46:01
DOWNSIE exactly I've never seen that happen i must be watching a different luke shaw from other people he's no interest in bombing forward at all.

16 Sep 2020 20:26:53
Sorry, its Mykolenko. I don't know him very well but i think him amd Telles were the two players the team wanted and scouted. Yet i don't know very well Reguilon too.
But you can see from videos, in his best highlights, that even there you see zero good crosses. I think Reguilon is good with the ball at his feet, he dribbles a lot, but he is not a good crosser. He has a problem with the final ball. And the asist stats are not so good for a top attacking left back. On the other hand Mykolenko is clearly better at crosses and he seems stronger too. I maybe be wrong but i think yesterday played center back against Alkmaar. He seems strong, good defensively with excellent left foot and room for improvement. His price tag and reputation won't mean he is automatically a starter so i think he is the best solution for our left back position if we want someone to compete with Shaw.

17 Sep 2020 09:57:15
Maybe we will see more of Dalot this season. He’s had a bad run of injuries - let’s not write him off just yet as he looked good.

17 Sep 2020 17:51:12
You aren't getting Bale because Spurs have beat yous to it same as Reguillion and because your club has an inability to get a decent transfer over the line a club size of Man United who cannot deals over the line is a total shambles only Woodward could go month after month after month and still can't get top target what is this guy doing in negotiations clueless then masks it up with signing of Van De Beek absolutely terrifying.

17 Sep 2020 23:13:40
Try taking a breath and using some punctuation.

18 Sep 2020 11:32:34
We should just sign Borna Barisic from Rangers. One of the best crossers of a ball from full back in Europe, croatian international with interest from teams across Europe. Would be a big step-up but Tierney and Robertson have handled it no problem.

15 Sep 2020 18:28:11
I have read that spurs are close to a deal for Reguilon, maybe we did not want him?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 19:07:01
theres talk of a madrid wanting a buyback clause there's no way we should even entertain that idea so for me i'm glad we walked away.
We definitely need a left back tho so hopefully we get telles tbh i would rather have him anyway.

15 Sep 2020 21:27:56
What is wrong with the buy back clause, just get big Phil Jones to change his name to Reguilon and off he goes to Madrid in a few years time.

15 Sep 2020 16:45:01
A mate who works in finance is trying to convince me that the Saudi Royal family only bid for Newcastle to test the water with the UK Government and the Premier League and that they are only interested in Manchester United.

I at first said bull##it but after he went into everything including the excuse the Premier League gave and Ashleys threat it got me thinking.

Am i right in thinking they bid for Man Utd in the past and that the Glazer family said 2 billion and its yours.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 18:22:45
If they offered 2 billion then fair enough. Would not want them close to United. rubbish family with a bad regime.

15 Sep 2020 18:36:31
I thought they valued the club at £4billion mate?

15 Sep 2020 18:56:11
Think it will cost more than £2 billion to buy United, remember MBS was rumoured to have had an offer of £3.5 billion turned down a few years ago.
We have long standing commercial deals through Saudi Telecom and signed a partnership with GSA back in 2017 to develop football in Saudi and I think that is as far as MBS wanted to go.

15 Sep 2020 18:12:40
Either way I'm delighted the Premier League told the murderous barstewards to do one.

15 Sep 2020 14:07:01
Hello everyone
Eds- With Roma looking likely to sign Marash Kumbulla (a player who we had looked at) ; does that end their interest in Chris Smalling? If so are there any sides showing any interest in Smalling?


{Ed002's Note - They ideally want two CBs and have already added one. It is possible that they will also look to replace Matias Nani as well. But they are not happy with trying to deal with Manchester United.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 18:38:55
Thanks ed

Also is there any truth in the reports linking us with Uros Racic from Valencia eds?

{Ed002's Note - Uros Racic (CB) Valencia would accept €5M for the Serbian. West Brom interest went when it looked like a Work Permit would be an issue.}

15 Sep 2020 13:16:04
Hi all,
Eds - is the Sancho deal dead? The mixed reports in the media are driving me mad!

{Ed002's Note - It is going nowhere right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 13:47:01
Ed, thanks for your reply. Is the media representation of this deal (to your knowledge) fair? Is it one step forward one step backwards?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the media have said I am afraid.}

15 Sep 2020 13:54:04
Ed002 do you think Dortmund will sell in this window if utd pay up?

{Ed002's Note - They are not intending to and there have been discussions about options next summer already.}

15 Sep 2020 14:15:11
Ed, have United seriously started considering other alternatives?

Or will they postpone Sancho's pursuit to next year considering the huge finances involved.

{Ed002's Note - They have alternatives as I have previously explained.}

15 Sep 2020 14:17:00
Thanks for the info Ed002, another vintage performance from the geniuses incharge.

15 Sep 2020 14:45:59
Is a deal salvageable Ed?

{Ed002's Note - It is what it is.}

15 Sep 2020 16:10:13
Its a shambles, however as ed02 has staed before the price was baulked at by every other club. The amateruish part by united is k ow Dortmunds position and still messing around with the transfer. They should have paid up 5 weeks ago or moved onto alternatives then! My only hope for this club going forward is the Glazers selling (will this happen any time soon? ) and getting real football people at the club.

15 Sep 2020 19:09:25
United's Chief Negotiator tends to wait to the last week of a transfer window to try and get the best possible deal. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, Dortmund know there will be more suitors next year and are happy to wait. I wouldn't expect any movement at least for another two weeks.

15 Sep 2020 12:21:07
Ed, what do you think about S. Romero `s situation. Now that henderson will feature more in some of the league games and cups, where you see Romero as he is still a very good keeper. Yes he is available but with around 3 weeks left for the window to close.

{Ed002's Note - I expect Romero will leave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 13:30:33
With Aston Villa looking like completing the signing Emi Martinez, which clubs are looking at Romero ed2? Also why did Villa back away from Romero?


{Ed002's Note - Racing Club have offered him a chance to return. He was simply one option considered by AV.}

15 Sep 2020 16:16:48
I'll be amazed if a top level club doesn't buy him. He's a quality keeper that would improve many sides. In many ways I prefer him to de gea.

15 Sep 2020 09:35:41
Gareth Bale 1 year loan with pption to buy at the end, perhaps Real subsiding some of his wages or waiving a fee to get him off their books all rumoured today.
Any truth we are looking to turn to Bale Ed?
I have read across the site thar Bale doesn't want to play football, I'm not sure that is true, ZZ won't play him and so he is picking up a big wage, problem has been nobody could afford him to buy or loan and Real also wanted a fee so I feel a tad unfair on Bale to say he has given up.
Problem i'd see is we sign Bale and he just won't be fit for a while or its a risk in terms of injuries but we do have Greenwood to rotate with him which may work on that basis.
If we was also to sign Stevanovic with Bale for a couple of years, Greenwood eventually going central, may not work out too bad, a risk as I say in terms of Bale himself but on his day he is unplayable and the savings from Sancho fees we could strengthen elsewhere, mind you we need to sell players first.

{Ed002's Note - Gareth Bale (RW) - if the finances can be sorted out Manchester United could opt for him as an alternate to Sancho.}

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Sep 2020 10:18:19
Thank you Ed.

15 Sep 2020 10:21:57
Bale when fit and motivated is excellent. Even 30 games a season from a fit and motivated Bale makes our squad considerably better. His contribution would outweigh that of James, Pereira, Mata etc you'd expect.

The issue for me isn't even the fitness side of things, it's more the motivation element. He's achieved everything he could have at Real from a silverware perspective but from an individual one not so much. Does he still have the drive to be one of the best in the world? He gets to stay in a lovely city with good weather, good food, gets to play an incredible golf course at the Santander Madrid and when he is at work he gets to play football for one of the biggest clubs in the world, earning a massive wage doing it. He's living the dream and motivation must be hard to muster when that is the case.

I think it is a risk but based on the other options of Perisic or Costa, I'd still edge towards Bale but that's probably more in hope that he rediscovered his best form than expectation.

15 Sep 2020 10:36:18
Bale can single handedly win games.
I do like the option of Greenwood and Bale rotating on RW.

15 Sep 2020 11:00:44
Bale ‘could’ singlehandedly win games, past tense.

Now Bale is finished. Massive wages, atrocious injury record, no work ethic, and doesn’t seem to care about playing.

15 Sep 2020 11:01:12
No problem rotating with bale as he'll be rotating with the operating table anyway.

15 Sep 2020 13:00:57
Id be happy as ed said if the finances could be sorted.
A loan with an option would be ideal imo and fairly low risk.

15 Sep 2020 14:16:32
I'd be disappointed if we sign Bale. I don't think short term options are a worthwhile investment. Look at Ighalo, as much as you might want him to be a success. The reality is is that he isn't going to challenge for a first team spot when everyone is fit. He's just there to make up the numbers.

If we can't sign Sancho this summer then I doubt we'll ever sign him. Next summer he'll either be more expensive than this, or if he isn't and is actually available cheaper then we will likely face strong competition from other sides, possibly even the sides that he would prefer to move to.

The only scenario which isn't a terrible idea when signing Bale would be on a heavily subsidised one year loan deal. He is 31, has a chequered history with injuries, is a player who relies heavily on pace, and has shown little desire to play football over the past few seasons.

Will he be able to stay fit often enough to play a decent number of games?

If he can stay fit is he still able to make a difference in the faster more physically demanding league?

Would he be a positive or negative impact on our young squad?

If he can stay fit, and if he can still play at the level he was at a few years ago and if he can find his desire to play then he would be a good signing.

But that is a lot of ifs. While his wage demands have the potential to cause another Sanchez situation.

A one year loan deal where we pay half his wages and a proportion of that half is performance related. Then it wouldn't be an awful move.

But then what happens if he does well? Should the club sign him permanently next summer? And at what cost? Or if we can't sign Sancho next summer and Bale flops who do we sign then?

I think if we can't sign Sancho then we should look for a diamond in the rough type signing. Someone young, with potential who we could sign and rotate around with the likes of Greenwood, Rashford and James in the wide positions.

Mbeumo, Tsygankov, Stengs, Neres, or Leon Bailey.

Players who can play anywhere across the front line, have talent and could make a huge jump up if placed in and around better players.

17 Sep 2020 17:45:40
Why would anyone be excited about Bale. there was a semblance of a plan, young, hungry players, Bale is simply a galactico signing. tbe higher ups have known for months what it would take to get Sancho and have acted, as usual in an amateurish way again and will now panic buy someone who doesn't fit.

Bale will be injured first game he plays and will be out. it's a disgrace tve club acts like this, no ambition apart from bringing in money.

17 Sep 2020 17:46:27
I don't think its fair to state he has little desire to play football, Madrid have ostracised Bale for that time period in the main, ZZ didn't exactly want to play him, if I recall Real blocked Bale going to China to play football, let's be fair even if Real wanted to let him go rather than blocking him leavinv these past 2 years who, except the Chinese club, would be able afford him, those that could afford him didn't need him, so that leaves Bale stuck really, easy to say take a pay cut etc but until recently Real wanted a hefty fee for Bale as well so tbh I don't blame Bale for picking up the wage Real agreed to pay him when he signed if they don't want to select him.
The Bale for Wales shows desire and work ethic as did the Bale for Real prior to all of this, I feel if Bale came here he would have a lot to prove and have desire and work hard but as I say his fitness and then injuries would be my concern.

14 Sep 2020 22:22:12
As Roma and United have ceased all negotiations for Smalling. Roma now close to signing Kumbulla. Can this window be any more embarrassing, feel for smalling and to have the move fail over 2/ 3 mill. Amateurish as usual. Never mind new signings we can't shift our deadwood, we always overvalue them and wonder why we don't have any takers.

Agree7 Disagree0

14 Sep 2020 22:30:55
I don't see how 20 mil is overpricing one of the best defenders in Serie A last season. For example, if Roma could value Dzeko for ~20 mil last season, while he was on his last year, why can't we value our players at 20 mil? Every club can put up a price and not move an inch when United wants to sign a player, but we can't do the same?

14 Sep 2020 23:02:36
This might work out well for Utd. Smalling could be a decent partner for Maguire.

14 Sep 2020 23:17:27
Your point works the other way also. We’ve been complaining about the price for sancho and wanting a cheaper deal due to C.V. yet aren’t willing to budge on our valuation for Smalling. Can’t really complain about Dortmund if that’s the case. Also we have 7 CBs would it not be wiser to take slightly less to get a few of those off the books?

14 Sep 2020 23:21:43
For years we have been asking us not to overpay for players and not to sell players for cheaper than they are worth. We are doing just that and moaning about that as well 🤷🏼‍♂️.

14 Sep 2020 23:21:50
I'm with trololo on this one, when any other club expect us to pay the asking price why shouldn't we expect the same in return. Smalling had a decent season last year and if roma want him so bad they would pay it.

14 Sep 2020 23:31:59
I don't get how 20m is over pricing the best defence in serie a last season. really? Your going to go off his good season last year rather than the 8/ 9 mediocre ones he's had with us before that?

Forget what other clubs do with us this is about smallings transfer and smallings transfer only. plus other clubs know we'll eventually pay up not everyone is as stupid as us.

15 Sep 2020 01:29:02
Also why would you want to sell the best defender last year in Serie A (if that’s true) when we look at the 6 other options we have.

{Ed0666's Note - because Ole is making the decisions

15 Sep 2020 07:00:51
A soon to be 31 year old CB on massive wages with just over 18 months left on his contract.

Get a grip lads, it's Chris Smalling, not Fabio Cannavaro.

15 Sep 2020 08:31:05
If smalling was one of the best defenders in serie a. It says more about how poor the defending is in serie a.

15 Sep 2020 09:26:00
Smalling best in Serie A?
In that case, most of the top European clubs would have been fighting for him.

Bonucci, Koulibaly, Skriniar, Romagnoli, etc, would be laughing :)

15 Sep 2020 09:53:15
Ok guys, this is my opinion, and I will try to "defend" it.

@Tim - I haven't mentioned the Sancho deal, but every deal we try to make, in general. VDB deal seems like a rare one, where we didn't have much trouble. Why don't you try looking the other way, Dortmund won't move from their price, not even for 1 mil, they won't even let us pay in installments, so why would we budge to any other club?
It depends what stance we take now. If Roma doesn't think that deal is ok, they can walk away. If we don't think that Sancho deal is ok, we should walk away.
What I agree on, is that we need to offload players, but not for any price. Should we give him to Roma for free? Or is there perhaps interest from some other clubs?

@Dbrooks Why wouldn't I go from that?
1. How many good seasons did 0, for example, Maguire have? Was this a very good season for him? How many players get a transfer after just one good season?
2. In those years, how good was the squad? Was it all his fault? Was he really that bad? How good is the squad now? Could he perhaps play better with these players? Why do some people see him as a better partner to Maguire?
3. Maybe there is a league that suits him better? Don't you think he could play for 3-4 years easily in Italy?
So, obviously, you agree with our transfer policy in past years? You wouldn't change it? You wouldn't like for us to not overpay the players, and you wouldn't like for us to sell our players for a decent amount? God forbid that things change! Maybe I'm too optimistic that things will change, but I would like us to try. Especially now, when there are 2 transfers that can show things have changed.

@Footballgoesincircles One of the best is what I said, and as he was picked in team of the season of Seria A, I guess that is pretty spot on. You would sell him because there is no interest in Jones and Rojo, possibly no interest in other options as well. He is bringing interest because he had a good season. And, as Ed said, maybe he isn't in managers plans. In my opinion, he would be a good 3rd or 4th option. I do rate Baily highly, but he is injured far too often.

@Angelred He is not Cannavaro, that is why he would cost 20 mil, not more. I already gave an example of Dzeko, he was in his last year of contract, while being 33 years old at the time, and Roma still valued him 20 mil (which Inter refused to pay) . I would rather use him, than undersell him.

@W16wes Sure, why don't you look up how English clubs did against Italian? For example, Liverpool didn't manage to beat Napoli in 2 games last year, and Napoli finished 7th place in Italy. It is a different style of football there, I can agree to that.

The problem here is where Tim got his info from. From a quick search, it suggests the move is still on, that Smalling is a priority and that any deal for Kumballa does not negate a deal for Smalling. Of course, none of this is from any reliable source or official channel. The fact he missed the team training and promo shoots seems more reliable.

Fair enough points. there just seems to be a lot of mixed messages coming out at the minute and as usual we seem to not have a clear plan or strategy. We have so much deadwood to shift and whether we agree on how much they are worth or not, those players all got new deals they should never have got. Thus creating this mess.

Dzeko was a proven goalscorer mate. You pay more for attacking players anyway.

Sure, I agree on that, but he was still 33 years old in last year of contract. I just took it as a close example, what they did to Inter, and what are we doing to them. Maybe karma, or something :D
Still, Smalling did very good for them, he blended in very well, and was voted in team of the season, in his first season. That should count for something.
I guess if it was a question of only 1-2 mil, we would already sell him for 18-19 mil total. But it seems Roma isn't even that close to our price.

Comparing Smalling and Sancho is ridiculous. You can't say "If dortmund can be like that, so can we", because the difference is that Dortmund don't want to sell Sancho. Utd do want to sell Smalling.

When you don't want to sell, you overvalue, this puts most buyers off, but if they are willing to pay up, you get enough to replace the player and come out ahead on the deal. There is no reason at all to budge on your valuation and meet the buyer half way.

When you DO want to sell the player, their value is what teams will pay for them. If you don't budge and at least meet them halfway, you don't sell the player and are stuck paying wages etc on a player who is only going to go down in value.

This is not rocket science boys.
