Ed 002, absolute kudos on the telles info, I said 3 weeks ago on twitter "if we sign a left back, it will be Alex telles " the story is breaking now that we have agreed terms and i'm a twitter god 🤣 you are the king of this business, never change 😘😘😘.

Deano1210

Hope we do get him but I read somewhere we are trying to get them down from 20 million, hope that is bull.


2.) 19 Sep 2020 08:57:57
You never know with us, personal terms always seem easy 🤷‍♂️ and I will blindly stick up for the club through thick and thin, but if we mess this up by haggling over a fee Brighton would be happy to pay I'll be pissed!

Time to put up i'm afraid, doesn't need to be a champagne signing but we need depth and telles would provide excellent depth, likes a goal too.


3.) 19 Sep 2020 08:59:28
PSG seem to be keen on him as well according to tabloids -saying its us or them now.


4.) 19 Sep 2020 11:17:05
PSG have Bernat who did well in the latter stages of CL and Kurzawa signed a new 4 year deal this summer. On top of that they signed a highly rated young lb from Ajax last year I think in Mitchell Bakker. So I don't think they see LB as a position of need when there is a short supply of cash. I know Bernat is curretly injured and Kurzawa has been suspended for 6 games but still you can't be signing players to replace a suspended player or injured player.

So the ball is firmly in our court in terms of Telles deal. I think Wolves may also be looking at him and they are getting money in from the Jota sale so they might offer a good option for him too.


5.) 19 Sep 2020 12:45:46
the injury puts him out for 6-8 months . I could see them as being serous rivals for Telles.


6.) 19 Sep 2020 16:37:27
Have we signed him?


7.) 19 Sep 2020 17:14:52
Not yet ken.


 

 

18 Sep 2020 07:53:38
Hi Ed, do the club have any interest in diogo jota?

Cheers Ed and have a great weekend 👍.

Deano1210

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}


1.) 18 Sep 2020 10:45:36
Thanks Ed 👍.


2.) 18 Sep 2020 18:11:00
Jota in talks with Liverpool apparently £35m. Seems cheap. And yet again others strengthen whilst we dither.


3.) 18 Sep 2020 18:17:17
Looks like he could be off to Liverpool.


 

 

11 Sep 2020 10:05:21
Hi ed, hope you are well, i saw yesterday that we may be back in for josh King, was just wondering if we have different striker targets atm as opposed to the update a few weeks ago .

Thanks 👍.

Deano1210

{Ed002's Note - Josh King (S) Manchester United failed to sign King in January and may well return. Aston Villa have an interest in taking Josh King. Enquiries have been made by other sides including Leeds and Spurs - but went no further.}


1.) 11 Sep 2020 10:15:09
Thanks Ed 👍.


2.) 11 Sep 2020 10:24:43
Probably would be an easy transfer to make given who his agent is and the connections he already has. Not sure if it would be the right move though. If he were to be signed, it would surely signal the end for Ighalo.


3.) 11 Sep 2020 10:50:47
Deano / angel.
If we signed king he would be back up for striker and wide forward.
It would appear that ighalo would be gone in jan if we sign king.
But we simply cannot keep adding players. We do need to shift some out. Romero? Dalot? Smalling? Jones? Rojo? Mata? Jesse? Unless we shift some or all of these guys out it will be very difficult to get me signings in as there is no space or wages available. 700 to 800k a week for that lot and if they play 20 games between them next season i'd be surprised.


4.) 11 Sep 2020 11:45:20
I agree Ken, the reason I asked about King was my assumption that ighalo will leave in January, i'm hopeful that we will move on quite a few in the next few weeks and replace them with one or 2 of good quality.


5.) 11 Sep 2020 12:23:38
King is average if thst, infact why don't we look at deeney?

We should be looking a players to improve us. King is no better than ighalo and if ighalo is leaving in jan we jeed to be looking at aomeone to give martial a run.


6.) 11 Sep 2020 12:54:23
Ighalo a big tall target man type striker who can hold the ball up and bring others into play. While I can see the benefit of having an Ighalo type striker as a plan B, I'm not so sure that type of striker actually suits us.

If you look at our forwards we have Rashford, James, Martial and Greenwood, add to that both Bruno and DvdB who play their best football around the box we actually have a front four who can all play in every position either wide either side, as a centre forward or in the No.10 area. This allows for a lot of positional rotation and movement of these players picking up space and swapping positions temporarily. Chucking a big target man up front who isn't as mobile or positionally flexible limits the whole attack.

While Josh King wouldn't be a player I'd have high on my list he is a player who fits well with the rest of our attacking players in that he can play anywhere across the front line, is quick and has actually come through our academy so knows the club well. Also he would be happy with a squad role allowing rotation without a change in tactics.


7.) 11 Sep 2020 13:02:39
Agreed ken. More need to be moved on.

And if we are looking to add squad depth, could we do better than King?


8.) 11 Sep 2020 16:05:03
We could possibly do better angel, I agree on that, I just get the impression there is a long term plan where the striker we actually want won't be available for some time so we go after round pegs for round holes until we are able to get preferred choices, king would be cheap, wants to join and knows the ethos of the club, so as far as we could do better, we could also do worse 🤷‍♂️.


9.) 11 Sep 2020 16:18:09
It friend angel. Imo if king and sancho signed he would become
3rd choice striker behind martial and greenwood
3rd choice right side behind sancho and greenwood
3rd choice left side behind rashford and James.
So as a 3rd choice in a variety if positions i think he is capable. In his prime. Good experience. Knows the club well. Ole coached him as a kid. Good pace. Can do a good job. Could make an impact off the bench.
Very good 3rd choice or squad depth player at 18m and cost less than half what ighalo get a week.


10.) 12 Sep 2020 05:02:35
Not sure where this thought that Ighalo is a ‘big tall target man’ last time I checked he was 5”11 the same height as Anthony Martial. He might not be the Best choice but saying he’s a big target man is doing him a disservice. His footwork and hold up play aren’t bad, when the ball is played into him it sticks and he brings other players into the game. I’d rather keep him than sign King but at the same time I’d rather have neither and sign some proper competition for Tony. Seems short to mid term we don’t have the money or the player isn’t available. We wanted Haaland and I think he’s the long term target for Ole with his release clause and nationality being a major factor I just feel we won’t sign in when the time comes due to competition from Real Madrid.


11.) 12 Sep 2020 09:13:30
Josh King has always been a menace whenever our defence have faced him.

He is physically really tough and has good pace.
Definitely suits our attack and he'll be happy to be a squad player.

Add to that he's a United fan.


 

 

31 Aug 2020 16:59:48
Lots of stuff saying paperwork signed and a medical under way, great stuff 👍.

Deano1210

 

 

28 Aug 2020 20:56:45
Hi Ed, just wondered if you are aware of us opening dialogue with villa for grealish as yet, and also if the reports of their interest in dalot and romeo are true?

Deano1210

{Ed002's Note - The players are noise in the total cost and may well pick perhaps £15M away if it happens. Agents have been talking and AV are open to a deal but would still want a significant amount of cash.}


1.) 28 Aug 2020 21:35:24
Cheers Ed, much appreciated 👍.


2.) 28 Aug 2020 23:41:58
Ed, apart from United, who else is interested in Grealish? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There is no serious interest although Spurs and more recently Arsenal have looked.}


3.) 29 Aug 2020 08:20:39
Grealish is a big fish in a small pond. If he was tk cost upwards of £40 million then he wouldn't be worth it for me.


4.) 29 Aug 2020 10:37:29
Hi Ed, value your option as always, how many (if any) do you personally think United will sign this Summer?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Four, or three; seven including youngsters.}


5.) 29 Aug 2020 12:25:34
Wow!
Can’t decide if this is a wind up or not.


6.) 29 Aug 2020 13:54:20
Robbie they're definitely serious about signing players. It's just going to be at their pace and no one else's.


7.) 29 Aug 2020 14:02:49
Jurado, Carreras, Stevanovic be 3 youngsters, maybe a 4th and 3 senior team signings i'd envisage.


8.) 29 Aug 2020 14:30:19
With any luck - Reguillon, vdBeek and Sancho.
In reality - Grealish, Badiashille and a winger on loan such as Conan/ Dembele.


9.) 29 Aug 2020 14:45:12
WRD
We have also signed Joe Hugill, a young striker/ centre-forward.

Also have we actually completed the signing of Stevanovic eds?


10.) 29 Aug 2020 15:04:29
Thanks Ed. Plenty of time left I guess really. Frustrating that nothing has happened so far but perhaps then things are going on behind the scenes.


11.) 29 Aug 2020 15:56:26
Almost like people need to stop panicking and throwing their toys out of the pram at everything that happens and let the club make signings in their own time.


12.) 29 Aug 2020 17:09:43
I think we’ll sign Brooks, Badashille and Grealish.

Hi Ed, is amad traore one of our alternative to sancho?

Cheers Ed 👍.

Deano1210

{Ed002's Note - No Deano.}


1.) 16 Sep 2020 13:23:35
Great news in my opinion. He is not the type of player we need imo and Wolves would want huge money for him so that's a no go for me.


2.) 16 Sep 2020 13:32:39
Amad Traore plays for another team Deependra.
I think Atalanta.


3.) 16 Sep 2020 13:35:38
Deependra.
They are both different players.
Amad is a kiddie and Adama is the one from wolves :)


4.) 16 Sep 2020 13:36:42
Deependra

Amad Traore is an Atlanta right winger. It’s not the wolves player.


5.) 16 Sep 2020 13:54:29
Much obliged ed 😊👍.


6.) 16 Sep 2020 14:10:11
My bad. I was sure it was Adama. I am actually aware of Amad Traore as well. Largely because Ed002 has praised his brother, Hamed Traore.

Sorry guys.


7.) 16 Sep 2020 14:13:30
If utd are interested, he will be one for the future, reading has played less than 30min for the first team.


8.) 16 Sep 2020 14:25:37
Just another quick one if you don't mind ed, has our interest in David Brooks moved on any further, thanks again and sorry to be a pest 👍.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any changes.}


 

 

26 Aug 2020 17:11:19
Quite interesting the trial has been overturned so quickly, 🤔 maybe it wasn't as open and closed as people thought 🤷‍♂️

He is once again innocent until proven otherwise.

Deano1210

{Ed001's Note - or it could just be that the legal system in Greece moves more quickly.}


1.) 26 Aug 2020 17:28:56
Interesting that the solicitor for the prosecution has basically said that if they were to apologise then charges can still be dropped. Does that sound like they are totally convinced about the allegations?
Or maybe they are just very nice people?
Something fishy about the whole thing.

{Ed001's Note - again why do you all want to make insinuations based on ignorance? That is how it works in Greece. You can apologise and it goes away. It is a very bizarre system but it is one of the reasons it has become such a big party place, as people can cause trouble and then just apologise and get away with it. Depending on what it is they have done of course.}


2.) 26 Aug 2020 17:42:08
Im making no judgement at all ed, just watching it closely, the truth usually outs in the situations then we will see what really happened, if he is found guilty on appeal of the charges brought against him then all the punishment and vitriol he receives will be justified, if he i'd found innocent after a more thorough trial he deserves mercy 🤷‍♂️ my take on it anyhow.

{Ed001's Note - I just wish people would sit back and wait until it is done before commenting. Some of the stuff on here is so far wide of the mark. People are confusing lawyers' statements with what Maguire said etc. The problem is we will probably never know the full story anyway.}


3.) 26 Aug 2020 17:47:23
Yea Ed, and there are 'new' anti corruption laws in Greece (2020) which make bribery a very serious offence - more so than before. So why was Maguire's alleged bribery classes as a 'misdemenour'?
I've said before, I he has done what is alleged then he deserves all he get. I'm not even trying to defend him actually. I'm just saying that, in my opinion, it all seems a little bit like a kangaroo court scenario.
If he has done as suggested, he gets no sympathy from me at all. But it seems a big IF at the moment, that's all.


4.) 26 Aug 2020 17:52:54
Only know what I've read, and i'm not exactly Perry Mason so truth be told I've misunderstood quite a bit, don't know anything about the Greek legal system either, was just willing to give our captain the benefit of the doubt until no further doubt existed, nothing more, nothing less.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 17:47:23

{Ed001's Note - they can't just decide to class it as a different offence, stop looking for things that are not there. It is most likely that they have a different system on the island. Many semi-independent islands around the world also maintain their own legal system. To you it may seem like a kangaroo court, but that's ignorance speaking as you have no idea. I have no experience of their judicial system to make a judgement on it, I very much doubt you have either. It could very well be like the Isle of Man is here, where they have their own legal system, based on the English one, but with many differences. So why make assumptions based on a few half-researched pieces on the internet? I am sure every pro-Man Utd blogger is cranking out articles denigrating the legal system there in an attempt to claim Maguire is hard done by, just as every anti-Man Utd one will be doing the opposite. None of them will have done any real research and have probably based their nonsense on what wiki tells them. Why not just wait and see?}


6.) 26 Aug 2020 18:24:41
Ed1 i say we should stick to football and let it run its course and see what comes of it. Too many judges on here etc. My personal opinion is the appeal may provide more detail and a clearer version of events. Until that happens and a result comes, not much point stressing over it!

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Let's just wait and see.}


7.) 26 Aug 2020 18:30:54
Ed,

I think there was just a bit of an argument and abuse going on yesterday based on the verdict so I can see why people seem wound up about the whole thing on here.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know why people are so desperate to take sides one way or the other.}


8.) 26 Aug 2020 18:42:41
Ed,

Meet football fans 😂.

{Ed001's Note - they have become more and more tribal in recent years. It is disturbing how blinkered people can be and how seriously they take a game.}


9.) 26 Aug 2020 18:49:05
GDS I think it’s more than just football fans. Society seems like it’s changing. There’s less room for opinion, you’re either right or wrong. Really is a strange time, and I think social media plays a huge part in it all.


10.) 26 Aug 2020 18:49:46
I totally agree Ed, let's wait and see. That's what I've said in a few other posts. What you said at the beginning of your previous reply is exactly why I am sceltical about the whole think - "they can't just decide to class it as a different offence".
Attempting to bribe a Police Officer is a serious offence anywhere, including Greece - so why class it as a misdemeanor, which is a minor offence dealt with in small local court which is the case here? Just seems like a rush job to get a quick conviction.
I'm not looking to argue, or even wanting a reply to my post, I'm merely trying to explain why I'm sceltical about the whole thing.
I'm not trying to suggest he is innocent, just that a proper trial is needed is such a potentially serious and high profile case 👍.

{Ed001's Note - it is not a serious offence everywhere, you have just pointed out that it wasn't considered serious on the Greek mainland until this year. Why is it difficult to believe that on a Greek island they still class it as a misdemeanour? If Maguire's legal team saw an issue with that, you can bet they would have jumped on it. Clearly they feel it is normal to do so there.}


11.) 27 Aug 2020 07:05:18
Ed01 is bang on here Imo, truth is we don't really know what's going on . most united fans will give it the, one of our own mentally and close ranks, anti united fans probably opposite .

Truth tends to come out in the end but let's be honest, a lot don't care about the truth .

{Ed047's Note - my issue is the condoning of the alleged behaviour not whether he’s guilty or not, that issue will be sorted at his appeal.


12.) 27 Aug 2020 13:38:02
Spot on Ed. Even after the appeal goes through, no one will know for certain exactly what happened, unless you were there. God knows why there's so much furore on both fronts.


 

 

18 Aug 2020 23:53:34
David brooks 🤔.

Deano1210

1.) 19 Aug 2020 08:31:41
Upgrade on Dan James. Free. Not high wages. Makes sense.

But we should be looking at higher quality players.

He's a squad player at best.


2.) 19 Aug 2020 08:55:23
before his injury he looked a fantastic player, if he could regain that form then I think he would make a great signing but it just depends if his injury will effect his progress, from personal experience ankle injuries never seem to heal 100% although I wouldn't of had the treatment he gets!


3.) 19 Aug 2020 09:36:17
Good player, would be a great signing at a decent price as an alternative to Grealish.


4.) 19 Aug 2020 09:48:50
Well about 12 months ago there were a lot of calls for him on here. He’s talented, hopefully get get past his injury. Looked sharp when I watched him post lockdown.


5.) 19 Aug 2020 10:18:15
That's a yes from me.


6.) 19 Aug 2020 10:29:25
Would be a great squad player in my opinion. Is he really free, rohanarora8?


7.) 19 Aug 2020 10:58:54
David Brooks is talented and homegrown, on current ability he is better than all options we have on the RW bar maybe Greenwood. He would be our second best No.10 behind Bruno and he would allow us to rotate without such a drop off in quality.

I've said before I'm in two minds about the sort of player we need for the RW. I think Greenwood stands a serious chance of nailing down that position for the next few years before moving centrally. If we miss out on Sancho we could end up spending 50m+ on someone like Chiesa who ends up spending most the time on the bench unable to displace Greenwood.

Signing someone who is an excellent player, proven and settled in the EPL for a relatively small fee for them to rotate with Greenwood might be the best option.


8.) 19 Aug 2020 11:33:55
Well for the cost of £80m on Grealish - you get Brooks, James Rodriguez, and still have plenty of change left for a CB or DM.


9.) 19 Aug 2020 11:43:56
Another step in the right direction for me, would be an excellent squad addition.


10.) 19 Aug 2020 11:56:12
Brooks gets a yes from me. Good signing IMO. Is Sancho really worth all that? no I don't think so. We should be looking to sell like 3 of the 7 center backs that we have and get at least one more, Hopefully Twanzebe can stay fit this year. And a CDM is a priority in my eyes, Matic's legs are almost gone and we don't have anybody like him there, I like Ndidi a lot.


11.) 19 Aug 2020 12:49:35
Some tabloids saying this morning Brooks is available at anywhere from 25-40 mill (daily fail) depending on your choice of red top -so not free.


12.) 19 Aug 2020 12:50:42
I'm really sorry, I confused him and Ryan Fraser. My opinions were on Fraser.


13.) 19 Aug 2020 13:16:52
That's a no from me, then 😁.


14.) 19 Aug 2020 13:20:39
Do players like David Brookes make any of the starting 11 worry about their places? I think if squad players don't worry the first team for their places then I would rather not bother. No one on our bench gives any competition to anyone but matic in the whole team.


15.) 19 Aug 2020 14:43:04
He's a good wee player, Mnk. I've had a soft spot for Bournemouth since my wee cousin played there in the mid-90s, and I watch a fair bit of them. He'd be a decent squad option. No one is saying he'd be a guaranteed first-teamer, but he's an intelligent, tidy, creative player, who by all accounts is a model pro on and off the pitch.


 

 

14 Aug 2020 10:19:04
So todays sancho related drama is news outlets reporting the problem is stemming from the agents fees.

If only someone had told us about this months ago 🤔🤔🤔🤔.

Deano1210

1.) 14 Aug 2020 10:37:54
I think it’s time we admit that sancho isn’t coming. he will probably head to Spain or even Liverpool next season. I’m really not sure who we will bring in this summer, I just have a feeling that it could well be a disappointment for ole and for us. Hope I am wrong.


2.) 14 Aug 2020 11:03:49
Still more than 50 days to go. It will be mad to commit all money towards Sancho.


3.) 14 Aug 2020 11:15:24
It’s an irresponsible amount of money in an unprecedented time. I don’t think there will be deals of this magnitude taking place in this window like there would usually be. For me I can’t see anyone else vying for his signature either, I feel Utd should sit tight for another season and go all then, when things are clearer. Leaving the RW position up in the air. A loan signing perhaps, or more diverse player who can operate on both wings and still be of use should Sancho still be a target next summer.


4.) 14 Aug 2020 11:18:35
Normally I would say that Dortmund are posturing to get the deal they want, and they may well be.

However, this seems more like they are putting their foot down. They have a phenomenal player in Sancho, Dortmund with Sancho have a shot at winning the league next year, without him they are only playing for second place.

He has three years left on his deal and they are under no pressure to sell. They set their stall out early, this is the price and it needs to be done by this date. I still suspect a deal could be done but only by paying the 120m asking price with no stipulations. However I don't think we will pay it.

Time to move on and find better value elsewhere before we end up scraping the barrel on the final day for a wildly overpriced decidedly average player.


5.) 14 Aug 2020 11:22:44
It just smacks of an incompetent transfer strategy.

Sancho has a ridiculous price tag. Every other interested side has rightly deemed it too high, and moved on. Yet, here we are thinking that a club with no desire or need to sell will just lower their price because Man Utd are interested.

The selling club has set their price. The player isn’t going to go on strike. Either pay it or move on to other targets. Same nonsense with Bruno last summer, they just don’t learn.


6.) 14 Aug 2020 11:28:04
The deal will happen. Ed won't want to lose face.


7.) 14 Aug 2020 11:47:21
Tim,

If we can’t afford him he won’t be going to Liverpool.


8.) 14 Aug 2020 12:10:49
Why gds2? Next summer salah or mane could go for more than sancho would cost. But you don't know that nobody does.


9.) 14 Aug 2020 12:54:42
James, I'm almost certain that the only way to get the deal done now is to agree to the 120m asking price. They might accept installments but not based on performances.

They won't sell for a penny less than 120m.

So Ed Woodward's options are lose face by not signing him, or lose face by caving into their demands and over pay (in this market) .

Being a money man if he is going to lose face I'm sure he would rather do it without spunking loads of money up the wall.


10.) 14 Aug 2020 12:55:28
Ken - because Mane and Salah will both be 29 by next summer transfer window, with styles reliant on pace. The usual clubs that would attract these players (Barca and Real) are both struggling financially and unlikely to solve their issues this summer given the overall global situation, so I can't see them stumping up more than it would cost for Sancho for a player with no resale value - why wouldn't they just sign Sancho instead? Unfortunately for Liverpool I think they've missed the last chance to get seriously big money for their 2 most saleable assets.


11.) 14 Aug 2020 13:11:47
Yeah they kept their assets and won the league and cl. Thank god for not in charge.


12.) 14 Aug 2020 13:22:40
If sancho doesn't go this year and things start to return to normal he will go for far more next summer .

I don't think it will be much more the 100m either way. I see a difficult season ahead in terms of finances for lots of clubs. Incomes will be down substantially.


14.) 14 Aug 2020 14:08:57
Ken - as a fan I'd always rather have trophies than the money, but Ed2 has repeatedly told the Liverpool fans that they are basically skint so I can't see them buying at £100m+ unless they sell. someone for the same or more. Who in their squad is going to go for that type of money next year?


15.) 14 Aug 2020 14:37:35
AA80 They will still spend 60m this summer skint and all.
If they get 60 70 for salah or mane they can top up the rest to buy sancho next summer easily.
What would vvd command if he fancies a move? He was tapped up by Liverpool who is to say madrid don't tap him up next?
Nobody knows what will happen.
Id like sancho at united but if we can't afford it or its unreasonable we will move on to another target.
If Liverpool have a season next year like they did this their finances will ease and improve substantially. They can't spend big this summer but they will be in a better place next summer.

I think a lot of teams will be in a better place next summer and there will be less uncertainty.
Hence I tbink BD will get more for sancho next year.

What I’d like to know is. what exactly have we been doing during the lockdown etc. We are always disorganised in a transfer window and never seem to have a strategy, but this year with everything you would have thought they would have been prepared properly. As ed002 has said many times AMATEURS.


18.) 14 Aug 2020 15:38:55
Why do you think a lot of teams will be in a better place jred?
Their finances were only affected for 3 months this season next year it will be a lot longer than that. Debt payments have been shelved by lots of clubs so getting them back in line will take precedence before squad investment.
Cash will be tighter. Costs will rise significantly like for most businesses.
Next seasons finances and incomes will be lower than this season without doubt.
So i don't know why you think clubs will be better off financially, in nearly all cases finances will be worse next year, how much worse will depend on restrictions of course.


19.) 14 Aug 2020 15:44:52
I understand jred your thinking but i really only believe that successful clubs will be better off next season.
Tv money and prize money and sponsorship money is linked to success. So very few will prosper the rest, i think we will be included in that will not be better off income wise.
That's why i think liverpool will do will be in a better spot. Maybe city.
With so much uncertainty about its hard to see many clubs spending big for the next couple of Windows. Of course some will. We have 350m in the bank in cash for example but others are not in such a fortunate position.


20.) 14 Aug 2020 16:21:11
Maybe we have moved on and are looking at other options and that's why no official bid has been made.


21.) 14 Aug 2020 16:39:13
Ken you have answered your own question.


22.) 14 Aug 2020 16:42:02
Teams down the pecking order who rely more on match day money will have a harder time . But I don't think the likes of Carlisle will try to sign sancho regardless.


23.) 14 Aug 2020 17:11:35
Dortmund are playing hardball. They have an asset on a reducing contract that could brake his leg on the first day of the season and be worth half that by nest season. Dortmund have always been a selling club but also pragmatic. They remain competitive most seasons while giving youngsters a place to shine. They buy low and sell high. They want 120 mill Euros and want most of it upfront and that's the key issue. Not that we won't go that high.

Dortmund have us by the balls. Everyone knows we want Sancho. Everyone also knows that United are total mugs when it comes to negotiating. We may look at other targets but if we don't buy Sancho and go sniffing elsewhere, other clubs know that the Sancho money is sitting there and will pull our pants down and we end up paying 80 mill for Grealish or someone.

I beleive the deal will happen. It's posturing. United knew all along how much they wanted overall and can't be shocked that they want most of it upfront like Dembele. Their finances are just as insecure as most over clubs so when a golden cow like United come along when times are hard, they will milk is dry.

To be honest the only people talking about a transfer are BD.

Absolutely.

Hopefully with a bit of pressure off we can end the season with a trophy.

You never know with us, personal terms always seem easy 🤷‍♂️ and I will blindly stick up for the club through thick and thin, but if we mess this up by haggling over a fee Brighton would be happy to pay I'll be pissed!

Time to put up i'm afraid, doesn't need to be a champagne signing but we need depth and telles would provide excellent depth, likes a goal too.

We could possibly do better angel, I agree on that, I just get the impression there is a long term plan where the striker we actually want won't be available for some time so we go after round pegs for round holes until we are able to get preferred choices, king would be cheap, wants to join and knows the ethos of the club, so as far as we could do better, we could also do worse 🤷‍♂️.

I agree Ken, the reason I asked about King was my assumption that ighalo will leave in January, i'm hopeful that we will move on quite a few in the next few weeks and replace them with one or 2 of good quality.

Fabulous bit of business the alcantara deal ed 👌.

{Ed001's Note - I am very happy with it. And Jota for that matter. Not sure about the Turkish centre-back as I have never seen him play but it would pretty much complete the squad. What surprises me is the lack of outs from United though. I would have thought the fat would have been trimmed by now.}
