Romano claiming personal terms agreed witgh Ugarte (same agent as Yoro) and he is keen on the project.
If we can get this one over the line it will be a brilliant start in the right areas of the team.

After United were banned from signing Todibo sue to the Ineos ownership of both clubs City have now signed Savio from Troyes, another club in City Group. How come this was allowed?

Have they set up the ownership differently to allow this to happen?

Do UEFA/ FIFA seriously think that the player would have been sold to a competitor if City believed that he could be a top Premier League player?

It's because we will be playing in the same competition as Nice.

They aren’t in the champions league. We can’t sign Todibo because we are both in the Europa League.

So how does competing in the same tournament change things? I don't understand why it would make a difference as long as the transfer was at a fair value. Either let the transfers happen or completely ban them. It does seem a way for clubs to keep hold of young players just in case they want them in future.

The deal between ESTAC Troyes and City was agreed before UEFA’s multi-club ownership rules came into force, they won't be able to do that kind of deal now.

Trying danny but it's a commodity in short supply in recent years. I am always hopeful.

Give it a rest for a few more weeks at least eh.

Yoro is bound to have a shaky start, 18 year old, first time in the Premier League, the media pressure of playing for United. That is why I hope we still sign De Ligt so Yoro can be introduced gradually rather than being thrown in at the deep end.

Like Mainoo, Garnacbo, Rasmus just enjoy watching them develop.

Mixed reports. has Yoro signed for us? If so, did he really want real as first choice? We've been here many times where we've landed a good player who's always had his eye on other teams.

Official now. I don't care if he wants madrid in the future, it means if he wants to achieve his goal then he has to play well, win win for us because we get a good player and a good fee if he leave.

100% agree mate. But we've had players in the past whove come to us and have looked distracted from the off. I hope he's here to play and win and make himself look amazing when he wants to move on.

Regardless of the Madrid fantasy, I believe he'll be with us 3 seasons. That'll then make him homegrown in England, which would improve his (and Madrid's sell-on) future options immensely.

With Militao, Rudiger and Alaba still at their current levels, it makes sense to play regularly and develop here. Who knows where we'll be in 2 seasons with a proper structure now in place after 2 trophies in 2 seasons.

Who cares?

Madrid is Yoro’s dream club.

United was Palmer’s.

And I’d love a date with Dua Lipa but it ain’t going to happen.

I'm not to concerned about whether Madrid was his preference or not, even if he stays for 2 years, if his development and potential is what everyone expects, Madrid will come in for him and we will make a decent profit on him, then we can invest in the next one. He may end up loving it at United if we can become successful again and give us a decade of service so either way, win win as far as I am concerned.

Unless he's rubbish!

Are we still going to push for Joao Neves or is he now PSG bound as per reports.

At the risk of being oversimplistic.

The fee for Zirkzee is covered by the Greenwood and Willy fees. Our budget has gone on Yoro, so we now need to sell to buy, depending of course on payment terms and so on. It looks like an in, out, shake it all about, kind of window.

17 Jul 2024 21:16:47
How do you know what our budget is AJH?

 4


17 Jul 2024 22:24:12
Zirkzee fee is being paid over 3 years.
We've no idea of the budget but of course you are right ajh we will need to generate funds any clear space for a couple more signings.
Pellistri hannibal awb lindelof ericksen sancho casimero look favs to leave with outside chances for mctom any Antony.
Not all will go but I can't see a big hitter like Bruno or rashford leaving.

AJH

Whatever you read about budgets i would ignore, not one guy out there that knows what they are talking about and its just click bait if you are reffering to 35 mill to 50 mill that is being quoted. its absolute bs imo.

The way I've worked it out is like this:

Zirkzee and Yoro both on 5 year deals so their fees are amortized at £18.5m per season (£42m + £36.5m = £78.5m total divided by 5) so impact on budget is pretty low. Their wages are reported at £110k pw and £65k pw, so that's much less that Martial who was supposedly on £250k pw.

Take Kambwala into account and they've pretty much paid for themselves FFP wise. Factor in Greenwood and I think we're in decent shape financially especially if we do Casemiro > Ugarthe and/ or Maguire / Lindelof > MDL / Branthwaite

Varane's wages off the books helps too.

i know fans shouldn't discuss finances, but. 🤷‍♂️😂.

Welcome to Manchester United Leny Yoro.
What a talent we have in our hands.
Perfect replacement for Varane.

Wow, Kyle Walker has been named in the official team of the tournament. Not sure I would of made that decision (actually I am sure) don't think he had a good tournament at all.

16 Jul 2024 20:21:36
He wasn't amazing and his positioning for the 2 goals in the final was suspect. Feels like a token gesture as we had to have 1 player in there as we were in the final.

I know I'm biased as a united fan but kobbie should have been in there, he has some future ahead of him. Only got in as a starter for us around the turn of the year and was England's best player imo. We are blessed, if he was at Brighton or some team like that and we wanted him he would easily cost us 80-100 million.

17 Jul 2024 07:55:42
I’m not a fan by any means but Pickford should be in there, Saka has been overlooked he was England’s best player imo.

Walker had a very poor final but was decent otherwise, he made 2 of England’s 8 goals (25%) .

 1


17 Jul 2024 19:06:34
Kobbie had a stinker in the final, no fingers can be pointed though as he was decent when he came in the games prior and helped the team a bit.

Generational talents are very few and far between, but like any other player, they need the correct coaching and development to flourish fully.

While it would certainly be naive to expect Leny Yoro to feel like he owes Lille some form of commitment, it would be an outright insult to the club if he chooses to dig his heels in for Real Madrid next summer in a move that would repay Lille nothing for the work they've put in to his career.

We, as a club, are in need of decent players who are also decent people.
Irrespective of this modern era of football ego - if Yoro treats Lille this way, then he's a little boy and absolutely not at all what we need, imo.

I'm torn on situations like these ork.
Of course like want to maximise their income from his sale.
By all accounts Madrid offered €25m we are at approx €50.
However they do not own him as a person and they don't have the right to shape his future career choices.
I would not like to see an academy kid of his talant and worth wait and leave for free for his own personal gain after they have developed him.
However he is writing his rights to challenge lille to accept a lower offer from Madrid if that's the club of his Choosing and his dream. He will be offered all sorts by lille to go to united in sure.
It's a tough one morally for both parties imo.
He will have people in his ear from all camps.
The only real questions for him to answer is where is he going to develop next to help fill his potential. If he does that the riches will come in spades.
Where is he going to play most?
What style of football suits him best?
Where will he learn most?
All big decisions for an 18yo I hope he has the right people around him advising him.
The last teenager and golden boy we signed from France left on a free this summer. They all don't make it.

Indeed Ken. Frankly at 18 he’s best playing every week at his own club and then getting the move he really wants in 2025 let’s be honest.

 0


17 Jul 2024 19:08:25
If he’s good enough he will play every week no matter which club he’s at.

18 Jul 2024 15:56:44
He won't play every week at united next season g nev.

It's great to see Malacia back in training. Hopefully he can get fit and stay fit this season and crack on.

16 Jul 2024 12:06:33
Same here hopefully the knee is all good and no lingering effects going forward. he will need some time to get back to fitness as not done anything for over a year.
