Evening everyone,
Reports starting to surface suggesting PSG are going to bid for Pogba this Summer. Possibly have already made some enquiries but I'm not going to pretend I understand how the 'process' of a transfer works etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2021 18:52:27
It sort of looks like might be in the works for us to get Camavinga, and thus we can accept letting Pogba go for a more reasonable cost.

09 Jul 2021 00:58:25
It’ll cost more to buy camavinga than pogbas fee (Utd’s cut of it)

09 Jul 2021 11:40:12
Frankly, even if the agent takes half the fee, getting anything at all for him + saving on his wages would be better than continuing to pay his wages for another year only for him to leave for free.

05 Jul 2021 07:28:34
Twitter, that ever reliable source, going wild with rumours about Camavinga today: United apparently in talks and fee of £30m mooted!

Yep, if it sounds too good to be true, it normally is. Plus can imagine PSG, Bayern, Real etc would be very interested also,

But if remotely true, shows what an effective DoF can do - and all the opportunities missed in the past because of the clunky and beurocratic one at a time system.

05 Jul 2021 07:54:07
It's all coming from one source though, Fabrizio Romano, who is quite often on the ball when it comes to deals. Did mention that PSG are interested, but it sounds like United are in advanced talks with a fee more or less set as Rennes want to cash in before he becomes a free agent.

05 Jul 2021 08:11:38
Hi Ed002,
Will Camavinga be a Pogba/ Van De Beek replacement or for Matic?

{Ed002's Note - He would be a cross between NM and PP.}

05 Jul 2021 08:36:47
The question though would be if he would get any game time under Ole. And whether the player would be happy having a limited role in the first team?

Would Ole trust an 18yr old in his midfield?

05 Jul 2021 09:29:18
Ed, are the club now making a serious attempt to sign the player?

{Ed002's Note - There is plenty of interest in him.}

05 Jul 2021 09:41:28
Good signing if it happens, PSG would be a threat though if they made a move for him.

05 Jul 2021 09:44:23
Thanks Ed. Sounds like Pogba is heading off….

{Ed002's Note - To where?}

05 Jul 2021 09:58:35
Pogba to PSG?

05 Jul 2021 10:03:39
Maybe Donny is off, Pogba stays, Bruno, Pogba, Camavinga midfield 3.

05 Jul 2021 10:09:23
Pogba to PSG is unlikely as he's stared several times he'd be unwilling to move there out of respect for his father who was a Marseille supporter.

05 Jul 2021 10:11:31
Rennes like many French clubs have been hit hard financially by the circumstances of the past 18 months.

While Camavinga in January would be free to sign a pre-contract with a club outside of France.

They are up against the wall so to speak, they can't afford to lose him for nothing as he's probably their biggest playing asset. But they can't demand the sort of fee he would normally command under different circumstances.

Apparently he would rather remain in France for another couple of years, which personally I think would be best for him. He's young and he needs to be playing 90 minutes of top level football every week to continue to develop.

We have seen a few youngsters move to massive club's a little too early in their careers only do see their development stall as they don't get enough football.

I'd imagine he would need some convincing to join us at this stage in his career.

As for what sort of player is he, well he's everything you'd want Fred to be. A hard working but technically gifted player who is as comfortable playing accurate 50 yard passes as he is sticking his foot in. Good in possession and aggressive out of it.

05 Jul 2021 10:26:45
Still think it very unlikely we sign Camavinga but I'd be delighted. He's Pogba with a bit of discipline in his game who doesn't need everyone else to do cover his faults.

I'd guess it'd spell the end for Donny if he signed though.

05 Jul 2021 11:36:51
If this is true and we do, however unlikely, sign Camavinga, it would be a clever move by United:

If Pogba is intent on seeing out his contract and getting him and Mino a huge signing on fee, (most likely I think) then Pogba can be Camavinga mentor for a year to ease him into the first team, where he will then replace Pogba.

Also sends a message to Mini that they will not be held hostage to his demands and sorting Pogba out at last minute as they will have signed his replacement - stay if you want Pogba, situation sorted either way.

United might also be using the prospect of Varane to tempt him also.

05 Jul 2021 11:52:15
I have a feeling Pogba will be leaving from free next year.

05 Jul 2021 14:42:23
I bet Camavinga can't wait to be mentored by Pogba on on how to perform silly TikTok dances. How do do silly arm and hand celebrations. What hair colours / styles to have during the season.

05 Jul 2021 14:56:13
The question should be, is he someone Ole wants or someone the club wants?

No point in buying the kid if our manager has no interest in playing him.

05 Jul 2021 17:20:50
Well. That went 0 to 100 very quickly😏.

05 Jul 2021 17:38:49
So Camavinga is more a replacement for Fred and Pogba would move to the left instead of Rashford.

05 Jul 2021 18:03:31
Maybe Camavinga should follow the route of Dortmund?

Ed002in regards to pogba

Psg Ed? The highest profile french player possible?

{Ed002's Note - Paul Pogba (CM) offered to Barcelona - may be available as a Free Agent in 2022 - Manchester United have wrecked the relationship with his agent. I doubt that the club would meet any demands which Mino Raiola would want to agree a new contract. They have extended his contract to 2022 and will need to strike a deal with Mino over any sale this summer (I am sure he would be open to taking, say, half of the sale fee) and hope a buyer can be found - this will need to be through a third party. PSG are in discussions to add two MF players but know that at least one of their targets is heading elsewhere. I don't think paying a significant fee for the hostage is part of their plans right now but if something can be done at a reasonable price they do provide an option - don't lose sight of them as a new employer as they are likely the most realistic option - even if they wait until 2022 and take him as a Free Agent. Real Madrid have a preferred target although Zidane would have liked Pogba. Pogba has made it clear he really wants Real Madrid to be his next destination but again the relationship between some in Madrid and Mino is not great. Juventus have other priorities in CM but there have been general talks and he might be a realistic option at the right price - but Juventus would look to including a player in the deal (Federico Bernardeschi) which would be great but he is also represented by Mino who the amateurs don't want to deal with. Juventus have a significant financial advantage due to tax laws in Italy and others departing but are planning on others and won't want to put the funds up for Pogba but at the right price could be tempted. Regardless, Juventus have other targets who would be way ahead of him on their list. So they too don't appear to be an option.}

05 Jul 2021 19:50:20
Cheers Ed. I hope we are sensible with price (my guess €50m? ) as its best for both parties if he moves on. We also have Van De Beek, and it might leave us less competition for, the player this thread was about, camavinga who would both cover his loss.

05 Jul 2021 21:02:32
Hostage 😂.

05 Jul 2021 21:56:58
If you were Pogba and wanted to play abroad and knew that next year could do so via a free transfer to a top club and pocket a huge signing fee plus huge wages would you not do so?

He is typical of most modern day footballers who want to play, win things, have a nice lifestyle and maximise their earnings in a short career which is always only one bad injury from being finished.

Allegiance to one club is rare and will increasingly be so. As long as whoever plays gives their all for the team when on the pitch and are not criminals or idiots off it then its something I have to accept.

The other thing to note is the lack of really charismatic managers in Europe not just England. I am talking about managers who make a player want to come to their club and play their hearts out. Apart from Klopp and Pep in our leagues who else is really like that. Abroad maybe Conte and Simeone but that's all. In Scotland Gerrard is that type of manager and in time looks likely to be so at Liverpool.

Such managers make a big difference. With due respect to Ole he is no managerial heavyweight so again it is no surprise he cannot inspire a player like Pogba to stay and sign a long term contract.

05 Jul 2021 23:19:07
Pogba stays for his final year then goes on a free. Can’t see anyone bidding for him at any amount we’d be happy with given we can’t profiteer from the extended year and would have to share a big chunk with Raiola / Pogba. And they can get a juicy signing on fee regardless next summer.

Van de Beek the interesting one for me. Clearly he looks outward bound too but suspect he was bought when we expected Pogba to go and Sancho to join last season.

Suspect Pogba stays, VDB goes and then turns into a worldie for someone else!

08 Jul 2021 17:29:56
You could make quite a team from players who contracts expire in 2022. Mbappe, Pogba, Varane, Goretzka, Camavinga, Ronaldo, Dybala.
To me that looks like a Madrid team in waiting and all for no transfer fee.

04 Jul 2021 08:23:42
Hi Ed002,
After the signing of Jadon Sancho, are United open to the sale of Daniel James?

And with United keen to add a new Centre Back, any update on possible interest in Lindelof/ Bailly?

{Ed002's Note - Daniel James (LW/RW) may be lucky and get a loan. Eric Bailly (CB) new contract but could be available. Nothing on Lindelof.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 11:50:26
ED002, is there any news on plans for Garner?

{Ed002's Note - James Garner (DM) It has been made clear to Manchester United that the player now wants to be in consideration for first team football and there is an acceptance that even with Matic coming to the end of his career they will look to throwing money at a replacement rather than giving him the chance to prove himself. This has opened the door to Nottingham Forest to consider him as an option - but they will know that interest from lower end PL clubs like Brighton will be joined by those looking to achieve promotion and build a side that can challenge in the Premier League - this will include the likes of Reading and Norwich.}

04 Jul 2021 13:55:01
Pretty idiotic from the club on this one. Garner is a good prospect who could likely contribute in games against lower end sides and in cup competitions next season. Matic is well past his best and seems to be knackered by November.

Is it likely United will sell Garner or just look to loan him again?

{Ed002's Note - I would think loan.}

04 Jul 2021 14:38:53
Thanks for info Ed002.

Re/ Garner possible move away from United, do you think this will be a loan or a permanent sale?

And, given yiour inside knowledge, is this because United just don’t rate him highly enough to make the first team, or do they want to loan him out for another year to see how he gets on at say, Brighton, adding muscle and getting used to the Pren etc?

Thanks for any reply.

{Ed002's Note - probably a loan.

04 Jul 2021 17:09:12
Thanks for reply Ed002, always grateful for your precious time.

04 Jul 2021 19:03:29
Thanks ED002, It must be rather demoralising being a Utd youth player.

{Ed002's Note - They need to rejig the system a little still but clubs are aware there will eb a need to move twoard more club developed players in the future.}

04 Jul 2021 21:47:21
Thanks ED002.

06 Jul 2021 23:08:30
Would love to see Camavinga at Utd… but he doesn’t feel like a Utd signing. Then again neither does Pogba. Certain players suit certain leagues.

04 Jul 2021 09:16:56
Looks like Mutough and Fletcher having a blinding window:

(RUMOURS obviously - will leave facts to the wonderful Ed002)

Sancho hopefully done

Varane really wanted

Dan James to Brighton
Donny to Real Madrid (loan or buy)
Bailey to Villareal
Lingard to West Ham
Martial for sale
Pogba to PSG or Juventus

Hopefully free up funds for Trippier and Camavinga

Loans for Garner, Amad, Pelliatr, Shoretire, Elanga and Mengi.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 09:32:58
Since they were appointed I have always wondered what exactly the roles of Murtagh and Fletcher are and who is responsible for what. I have an idea of what they do in my head but truthfully it's difficult to whine about them when I am not really sure who does what!

04 Jul 2021 09:25:05
Wallace,

ED002 has said Camavinga won't be joining Utd.

04 Jul 2021 10:12:25
Can see Varane and Trippier coming in, can't see a CM unless significant sales are made.

04 Jul 2021 13:30:53
We will see if PSG will acquire both Pogba and Camavinga if that's the case.

04 Jul 2021 13:42:45
What’s the point in signing trippier? We have AWB and trippier will want to be starting most games. Makes 0 sense to me.

04 Jul 2021 16:12:39
Whiskey,

Because exactly that, we only have AWB, why do city have Walker and cancelo? Because they have a lot of games.

04 Jul 2021 16:58:09
Cancelo covers left back, Kyle walkers played CB. Hence why they can manage the two of them. I see no reason to sign a starting level right back. We have far more pressing issues. CB and DM. A second right back when we still have dalot and Williams on the books is just a waste of money. And even moreso the rumours that atletico want 30-40 million for Trippier. That sort of money could be reinvested in positions we actually need.

04 Jul 2021 20:04:29
All the rumours and moves look good on face value but I will reserve judgement until the window is closed.

Judging them on who they can move on will be a key measure for me.

Sancho and Varane would be an A grade window on incomings.

05 Jul 2021 06:26:59
Romano has just posted about negotiations progressing for Camavinga with a €30 price tag.

05 Jul 2021 08:40:42
Telles needs a partner on the bench and Trippier makes sense.

05 Jul 2021 16:24:01
Whiskey,

We need 2 full teams to be able to compete, that’s what city have and if we want to do well in all competitions we need players who can cover all over the pitch.

Nobody was complaining when we had 4 strikers in 99, in fact it’s the main reason we managed to do so well managing the game time, AWB can’t play every game and competition in the squad is perfect.

{Ed014's Note - it makes perfect sense to upgrade both your starting and 2nd 11. Albeit you want the 2nd 11 to be constantly pushing for a first team spot.

In essence you don’t want a huge drop off in quality between the two. Liverpool paid that price last season.

06 Jul 2021 11:11:26
Totally agree Ed14

Whiskey mentioned we have Dalot and Williams on the books but I am guessing neither of them will be at the club this season, definitely not if we signed a right back to challenge AWB.

{Ed014's Note - Trippier would be a great backup for AWB for me. That is a definitive improvement.

02 Jul 2021 19:12:13
Evening all.
Ed, with Heaton signing and Lee Grant putting pen to paper on a new deal, could DeGea be on his way out? Any suitors?

{Ed002's Note - David de Gea (G) Manchester United may need to choose between Henderson and De Gea with the other moving on. Italy might have a solution. Wages will be a major issue in any transfer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2021 12:12:39
Thanks for the reply Ed. Is there a preference by the club either way as to who moves on?

{Ed002's Note - I think the time has come to make a choice and it probably should be Dean Henderson. The issue with DDG and any sale will be his wages.}

03 Jul 2021 12:43:17
Really interesting. Henderson had a brilliant time at SU and he’s looked assured most of time since becoming regular for United. As a fan, it’s hard to looked away from De Gea though, he’s been tremendous for us. Sounds like a potential transfer that could run the length of the window. Thanks for time Ed.

03 Jul 2021 13:22:31
I don't think anything will take away what a brilliant player DDG has been for us, and it's criminal that after 10 years of service he only has 4 proper trophies (not including community shield's as they are glorified friendlies), including one one league title.

That said a key factor of being a top club is knowing when to move players on before you become saddled with a declining player on huge wages.

An argument could be made that during the final few years of Sir Alex the club tried to squeeze every ounce out of aging and declining players rather than spend big on bringing in top class replacements.

With players like Rio, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs and RvP all over 30 when Sir Alex retired and still a key part of the side.

Maybe if the club had moved a couple of those players on and brought in quality replacements for them then maybe DDG would have more than a solitary title, a couple of domestic cups and the Europa League for 10 years service.

I'm not saying Dean Henderson is definitely the answer, but he probably deserves a genuine shot at nailing down the position.

We gave players like Carroll, Foster and Howard more than a season to prove themselves, and arguably they had done less than Henderson to deserve a shot.

03 Jul 2021 14:22:35
I think Hendo has been ok without being particularly inspiring. A few wobbles but generally 'ok'. Let's hope the gamble (if that's what this becomes) pays off as the back-up options are grim if it doesn't work out and all of a sudden a GK becomes a priority next summer while we watch big Dave tear up Serie A in the form of his life like Lukaku.

03 Jul 2021 14:36:00
Ed, are many of the same clubs as mentioned a few months ago still interested in Henderson? Sides like Chelsea, Spurs, Dortmund (I think they were mentioned) .

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have not made any approach for Dean Henderson. Borussia Dortmund have opted for someone else. Spurs have Henderon on their list of Lloris replacements but are in talks over another.}

03 Jul 2021 15:02:43
Spenno, if we can get a CB and a CDM this summer, which isn't out of the question then looking forward to next summer then what are the priorities?

In defence we are more or less covered in the full back positions. Maybe a RB, but hopefully Williams has a great season on loan and is more than capable of stepping in. At CB if we sign a top level CB this summer then I don't see us needing one next season, especially if Mengi has a good season on loan, he could be capable of stepping up to being the 5th choice CB behind the likes of Maguire, new signing, Lindelof and Bailly.

So we probably don't need a signing in defence.

In attack our wide areas are looking pretty stacked with Sancho, Rashford, Greenwood, Amad and James. With players like Pellistri, Elanga and Shoretire waiting in the wings (pun intended 😂) . We will need another striker with Cavani leaving. Whether that is as a first choice or as solid competition for Greenwood depends much on his development this coming season.

Midfield is the other area where things get interesting. McTominay is a solid option, and if we sign a CDM then that makes two. But next summer could see an exodus in midfield. Pogba will probably leave on a free, as will Matic with his contact up. While if Donny doesn't kick on this season I would expect him to leave as well. Garner if he has a good year on loan might be ready to step up to a squad role. We will probably look to bring in someone else in midfield, unless either Donny proves himself or if Hannibal is ready to step up.

So realistically next summer we will need to bring in a forward with probably Cavani and Martial leaving.

And maybe a midfielder if Donny doesn't step up this season.

Therefore if we need a new keeper because Henderson doesn't prove good enough I'm sure we could stretch to that.

03 Jul 2021 15:14:43
Well of course it’s impossible to answer what Utd’s priorities will be next season as we don’t know the outcomes of the two windows before that! But for sure, a main CF is clearly going to be needed. Which players past their prime will be available then? Benzema? I just of course. But that will be the priority, and then a midfielder of some ilk, as Mata and Matic will be off and who knows what shape the midfield will be. Too many variables.
As for Henderson, all we can do is wait and see. When he does his Karius impersonation in an important fixture we shall see what happens. But they have obviously made a decision, one way or the other. Maybe we’re wrong and Hendo is more likely to go.

03 Jul 2021 16:37:20
Spenno, how many mistakes did DDG make in his first few years?

Henderson will make mistakes, every keeper does. It's about how they pick themselves back up afterwards and whether they can learn from them.

From what I saw of him last season with Sheffield United he fronted up when he made mistakes and he learnt from them. He was also one of the top 3 or 4 keepers in the league that season. So I think he has enough about him to give him a go. Obviously it's a world of difference playing for Sheffield United and Manchester United, but we'll never know if he can do it unless we give him a chance.

03 Jul 2021 20:42:47
Its not about mistakes. De Gea made mistakes in his first years but still we all could saw the potential. Is this the case with Henderson?
Henderson had only a very good year with a mid table team as many goalkeepers has. Including our newcomer Heaton who had a fantastic season with Burnley. Really is this the criteria?

03 Jul 2021 21:56:32
Herrera, based on current ability and not past performances Henderson and DDG are at a similar level.

The difference is Henderson is in the ascendency, while DDG is declining.

03 Jul 2021 22:12:00
The thing is that you compare Henderson with De Gea of first season and the mistakes of the two which is wrong. Making mistakes is the one and the potential the other.
All players make mistakes and that's means (almost) nothing. Comparing the two we can see a young De Gea making mistakes but having the potential to be world class and Henderson making mistakes but don't seem likely to become world class. That's what matters (being world class) and not the current ability. So either we believe Henderson will be world class and stick with him or we don't believe it so we stick with a tested keeper like De Gea and next year we replace him with a top keeper. That's suit us, as Henderson will bring more money now instead after the average year he will have next season and next year it would be easier to find a buyer for De Gea as he will come close to his contract.

03 Jul 2021 22:34:57
That's the difference, I think Henderson has the ability to be a top class keeper.

If they are currently both at a similar level then surely it makes sense to gamble on the player on the upward trajectory rather than the one on the downward trajectory?

Then if it doesn't work out then replace him next year?

{Ed014's Note - makes sense to get rid of both and just buy a quality keeper.

It’s all this pissing about that gets you nowhere!

03 Jul 2021 23:28:37
Its not a position to gamble. If they are not good enough then as 014 says get rid of both. And if we can't rid both this summer, then the easiest way is to keep De Gea for now who has a shorter contract.
Although they are not at the same level. If you mean same performances maybe, but not the same level. De Gea has concentration problems and make mistakes. Henderson has not the same reflexes and has some bad positioning. Its easier for De Gea to recover from his problems than Henderson to up his game to the required level.
Generally i am with 014 on this. Its not a position to gamble so if you can go and take a too goalkeeper.

04 Jul 2021 06:12:48
If it was so easy replacing someone in the squad - people need to remember how we struggled with the GK situation before we got Van Der Sar. There is no guarantee that a new keeper would solve the situation especially someone coming in from another league.

First we need to make sure that our defense is solid and stable to give anyone replacing DeGea a decent chance of succeeding.

DeGea's strengths are his shop stopping and quick reflexes and has shown that he is mentally strong when he struggled in his early times at the club.

Hendo for me though is the complete GK overall and he just needs to work on his reflexes and needs to calm down a bit in situations where he seems to be in a rush at times. With age on his side there is room for improvement.

For now if we are able to get in a proper CB and organize our defense properly then all we need is a reliable GK and Hendo fits the bill. He is not top class but someone with the abilities we need at the moment.

Given a choice I would keep both with DeGea as No.1 and Hendo learning and gaining experience with enough opportunities to see what he is capable of. Next season if we have enough trust in Hendo being No.1 then sell DeGea otherwise get in a new keeper to replace both.

04 Jul 2021 08:05:03
People are probably scared of what will happen if we sell Henderson and he shows class for another team.

Imo, England rarely has a top class keeper, I honestly can't remember a top team having English keeper recently. There was a big hype around Hart, but how long did that last?

Sure, I can't see the future, maybe Henderson is the one, but i'm not convinced. I don't see the talent Shappy is talking about, but then again, i'm no expert.

04 Jul 2021 08:18:02
Henderson has not had a proper full season with United under his belt.
I would give him an year before judging him.
There must be some reason Chelsea, Bayern, Spurs were interested in him .

04 Jul 2021 10:14:30
People talk about buying a new keeper like it's popping to the supermarket and picking one off the shelf.

In truth there is only one possible keeper who may in theory be attainable who is pretty much guaranteed to be an upgrade and that is Oblak. The issue is that Atletico value him at 100m.

All other top proven goalkeepers are already at top clubs and it would be very hard to sign them.

In my opinion any other keeper we could sign would be as much of a gamble as either giving Henderson a run or sticking with a declining DDG. Imagine if we sell DDG and Henderson and the new signing flops, we then have a choice of Heaton or Grant.

DDG's decline can be linked back to the last world cup and his poor performances with Spain. From which he never mentally recovered. I wonder how spending the last few weeks sitting on the bench while Athletic Bilbao's keeper starts for Spain will have impacted him mentally?

Will it reinvigorate him and make him push to win back his place, or will he decide that his international aspirations are over, and he has little left to push for. He's the highest paid keeper in the world, sit back and coast to retirement.

If it's the former then we could see him get back to close to his best. If it's the latter then he will likely continue to decline maybe at a faster rate.

Either way sticking with DDG is a gamble, making Henderson the No.1 is a gamble, signing a player from outside the league without experience of playing for a club with huge expectations is a gamble.

Whatever choice is made it will be somewhat of a gamble. Signing a new player is a the biggest gamble as you can have no idea how they will settle. Going with one of the keepers we have and know is less of a gamble as you have more information to base that decision on. But it's still a gamble.

Personally I'd back the player whose on the up rather than the player whose on the decline.

Heard that Rafa Varane is taking a 3 week break to reflect, wants to then speak with Carlo Magnifico and we have to deal with Perez.
Pau Torres has been names in Spains Olympic squad also so may miss first few weeks of the season if we signed him.

With carlo magnifico I'd expect magnificent advice . we could be in trouble then.

Doesn't sound like a player who is itching to leave does it?

Might be worth his while to just see out his contract in Madrid.

29 year old defender of his calibre as a free agent would have a lot of suitors.

Hi Ed, I know you don’t like to give answers about “close” and things like that so I’ll try to word a useful question.

Has their been any changes on the CB front for United? Pau Torres being a top choice, but it seems like Varane is more available and United will make a push for him

Do United have a chance at signing Varane? Especially with PSG looking at Ramos?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed. I have explained the targets. I am not sure what you are expecting.}

Hey ed,

Just on the topic of transfers, any possible update on the outgoings for the club?

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

Nothing is close in these CV times. All transfers will remain 2 metres apart.

03 Jul 2021 08:40:42
It's not a rumour!

27 Jun 2021 13:37:50
Ed002, is there any truth to the United being interested in Camavinga rumours?
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Yes - this has been explained may times. I would not hold your breath.}

What a super young player. But I can’t see it. Has Real/ PSG all over him.

28 Jun 2021 07:28:34
I definitely won't be holding my breath, United seem to take somewhere between 6 to 12 months to complete transfers once a target has been decided. As seen with Maguire, Bruno and Sancho😂.

We can dream I suppose. Camavinga, Varane and Sancho would be an incredible summer window and improve the squad significantly.
