Is the Sancho transfer now resolved?

GrimisnotDead

{Ed047's Note - yes he’ll be there on Friday


1.) 10 Aug 2020 16:31:33
Is that confirmed for sure Ed or something you think is likely?

{Ed047's Note - it was tongue in cheek prodigal, who knows if he’s coming or not.

The latest according to Dortmund is no but that could be just trying to get you to pay his way over the top valuation as you seem so desperate again.


2.) 10 Aug 2020 16:45:46
Where Altach Ed?

{Ed047's Note - anyone’s guess mate 🤷‍♂️


3.) 10 Aug 2020 16:48:54
All part of the fun of being a United supporter Ed.


4.) 10 Aug 2020 17:45:58
Could be worse Ed047, could be signing a past it 32yr old winger on huge wages on a 3yr deal deemed not good enough by his current club, coupled with wasting one of the worlds great midfielders by leaving him on the bench to collect his £350k wages, only to replace him with the likes of Xhaka😂😂😂. Topping it off by embarrassingly begging a striker to stay at the club who doesn't actually want to be there because you're THAT bad.

Talking of desperation, didn't you pay 3x over the odds for Lionel Messi? Sorry, i meant Nicholas Pepe🤣🤣🤣🤣.

{Ed047's Note - 🎣 I don’t half love you scholesy! 🤣🤣


5.) 10 Aug 2020 18:55:47
He said that about dembele and he was sold.

{Ed001's Note - yes but Dembele did a midnight flit, literally just vanished over night, fleeing Germany, that precipitated his sale after they found a number of other issues he had left behind. Particularly the state of his apartment, which ended up in a court case for damages.}


6.) 10 Aug 2020 19:28:29
At the end of the day, we know the price. If we match it he comes. My view is, if this is the managers number 1 target then we should get him, but I don’t make the decisions. It will be interesting to see what happens. I don’t think a certain date makes any difference to whether or not the player will be sold before the window closes.


7.) 11 Aug 2020 00:14:53
I expect a deal can still be done if we match their original asking price, but if Dortmund are smart they’ll flat out refuse to negotiate any further and just wait until EW gets desperate.

I feel a little sorry for EW as it’s a tough call as to how to approach this one and he’ll likely end up catching some flack for the way he handles this whatever he ends up doing. Part of me thinks he should have just paid the asking price straight away and got the deal done, but I also appreciate that it’s this kind of behavior in the past that’s lead to us getting bent over a barrel with every deal we make.

Ultimately though, I expect we’ll end up caving somewhere down the line and offering the full amount, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if Dortmund stick to their guns and keep him for another year (although I guess this might depend on whether or not Sancho pushes for a move) .


8.) 11 Aug 2020 05:25:35
Caolan

We as fans always say back the manager, give him the player he wants if he is the managers first choice and all . But sometimes we should be sensible in our business ideas too. Maybe sometimes the managers first choice isn't the best option all things considered.

And if you need an example as to when it is a success when a managers doesn't get his preferred choice just look at Liverpool and Salah.

Sarah wasnt Klopp's first choice. Actually he was 4th choice I think. But the club saw him as the better overall option and convinced Klopp to sign him. And rest is history.

Reports saying our bid for Josh King has been turned down by Bournemouth.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 31 Jan 2020 06:21:55
The very Josh King that used to play for us?


2.) 31 Jan 2020 08:14:36
Would prefer him then Slimani.


3.) 31 Jan 2020 08:37:07
i don't rate him what so ever. would he offer more than martial?

somtimes martial can be fantastic but he always drifts in and out of games for me.


im unsure on king don't think he would improve us.


4.) 31 Jan 2020 08:49:06
Agree don't want him I like the look of william jose looks half decent big and strong and knows where the net is.


5.) 31 Jan 2020 09:26:37
Martial has been given the No.9 shirt and a massive new deal.

When fit he will be the first choice central striker.

We aren't looking for a world class first choice striker to come in.

We need a rotation option who offers something different, ideally a back to goal striker who can bring others into the game.

Giroud would be the ideal signing, I just can't see Chelsea selling to a rival and if they would I see Spurs ahead of us in the queue due to Giroud preferring to stay in London.


6.) 31 Jan 2020 09:57:59
I think Chelsea will rather sell to us than Tottenham. plus Giroud knows he has a better chance of getting playing time with us over the next 12 months. Given his age he will also want a final pay day which we can offer better than Tottenham.
THe only issue is we are not interested.


7.) 31 Jan 2020 10:02:25
Some of you may have seen The Masked signer on TV (yeah, quality I know! ), and would have seen Teddy Sheringham as the 'tree'.

If we wanted to sign a tree, maybe we could sign him again. Be a cheaper option than Giroud.


8.) 31 Jan 2020 10:10:13
Shappy,

Martial lacks consistency. Also you said when he is fit. He is quite injury prone. He needs to be more aggressive. At times he is like a other Pogba, hands on his hips.


9.) 31 Jan 2020 10:53:25
I don’t rate Martial at all.

If we had sold him and held onto Rom, we’d be in a much better position this year. Martial is just a confused player, doesn’t have the instincts to make it as a striker and hasn’t worked hard enough to improve his wing play.


10.) 31 Jan 2020 11:14:26
I think Martial is a better player than many give him credit for. That said, he doesn't look like he will become the world class striker he looked like he would grow in to during his first season at the club.

He is a good at linking up play and is the most clinical striker at the club (Greenwood not withstanding as he is in his debut season and isn't ready to be first choice starting striker every week) . He doesn't make enough selfless runs or gambling runs.

In the right set up and tactics he can be a very good striker. Considering this season we have struggled to create good goalscoring chances, and Martial has spent time out injured (which often means a player needs a game or two to play themselves back into form) . Martial has 8 goals in 1458 minutes which is a goal every 182 minutes or a goal every other game. Which is a solid scoring rate. If he hand't been injured and we had been creating more and better goalscoring chances he could be close to being one of the top scorers in the league.

The real issue with Martial is his injury record. He just can't stay fit for a whole season. That's why we need another central striker, with Rashford struggling centrally and Greenwood being a year or two away from being ready to step into that role.

My favourite person for that role would be Raul Jimenez, but he certainly won't be available mid-season. So someone like Giroud for 18 months would be a great option to allow Greenwood time to grow into the role.


11.) 31 Jan 2020 12:10:23
Shaps, you need to change your name to Stato. Or get a hobby.

I have it on good authority that Woodward upped the offer on Fernandes when Ole threatened to bring back Alexis next season at the press conference this morning.

Lol., that’s good. 👍🏻.

Hearing reports that we are in talks with Antero Henrique for the Director of Football role. I thought he was off the Inter last week and we were in talks with Campos.

Falling for it again are we?


2.) 27 Jan 2020 18:51:00
Here we go PR machine in overdrive this is clubs excuse for there being no signings in January but we might have a DOF meaning no. need to protest because Woodward won't be in charge of transfers Win Win for the board again.


3.) 27 Jan 2020 20:18:06
Not falling for it Dan, just pointing out the regularity with which we are linked with a new DoF, our PR dept is busier than our transfer dept.


4.) 28 Jan 2020 01:00:12
I wouldn't get too excited anyway he hasn't exactly had glowing reports from his previous jobs.


 

 

05 Aug 2019 06:25:38
The Times reporting that Real have bid £27 million + James for Pogba, which United have rejected. Is there any Marid player that you would take as part of a deal, I cannot think of one.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 05 Aug 2019 07:57:08
Hazard ;-)


2.) 05 Aug 2019 08:08:22
Isco is the only one.


3.) 05 Aug 2019 08:11:33
Hazard, Vinicius Jr, Varane, Casemiro :)


4.) 05 Aug 2019 08:33:32
Varane+80M for Pogba instead of Maguire.


5.) 05 Aug 2019 08:46:07
Varane.


6.) 05 Aug 2019 09:18:21
Zinedine Zidane, at 47 he would still be the second best creative player at the club.

So we have dithered so long on the fee for Reguilón, Spurs have now jumped ahead of us with a bid accepted by Real tonight. Think that is pretty standard practice for United these days.

GrimisnotDead

1.) 15 Sep 2020 19:59:53
Or perhaps Spurs was willing to keep the buyback clause in the deal and we wasn’t. Perhaps MU wanted full ownership of the player and not to develop him to be potentially world class and have Real Madrid come in and take him back.

Pulling out of the deal is Absolutely right thing to do if that was the case.


2.) 15 Sep 2020 21:32:31
Were we even interested in him? Seems like he’s been offered to clubs rather than actually identified and scouted.
I don’t want to sound like a fan who rubbishs a player because he signs for another club but it seems like he was offered, we listened to Reals offer, didn’t like it and walked away. Spurs have agreed the buy back clause so he goes there, simple.


3.) 15 Sep 2020 22:23:50
Or maybe we prefer an alternative such as Telle?


4.) 15 Sep 2020 23:39:21
Dave logic isn’t accepted during transfer windows!

Good to see MUWFC signing players of the caliber of Christen Press and Tobin Heath. Hopefully a trophy will be on its way this season.

Defo Grimisnot. The progress they have made is awesome hopefully they can push on from a great season.


2.) 07 Sep 2020 20:59:14
They are looking a great team, Casey is good for them.


3.) 07 Sep 2020 21:08:27
She conducts herself like a proper united manager.


4.) 07 Sep 2020 23:06:03
she should take over our first team then.


5.) 08 Sep 2020 07:17:48
Interesting point, do you think Casey could make the move to managing a mens team. A few female managers have done it with limited success, Scotland and a few on the continent. I guess its only a matter of time before it happens in England.

Does anyone know if Gabriel Heinze is in contention for a coaching post in Europe. He was linked with Rennes a few years back then Marseille a few months ago.

Has anyone seen the new zebra stripe third kit?

GrimisnotDead

1.) 31 Aug 2020 07:41:09
Yes unfortunately.


2.) 31 Aug 2020 08:11:17
The Adidas kit designer must be a Liverpool fan surely, it’s the only thing that makes sense. Either that or he was high 🤣.


3.) 31 Aug 2020 08:32:23
It looks like it has been attacked by lion and then sown back up to make a kit.


4.) 31 Aug 2020 09:22:34
Is it definitely that black n white monstrosity, or is it still just a rumour? If it is it's awful.

That said I don't like the home shirt either. It reminds me of sitting waiting for my Commodore 64 games to load from the tape deck as a child. Retro at least I guess.


5.) 31 Aug 2020 09:40:09
I think that prison inspired kit might have been more appropriate under LvG, when it looked like our players were playing with a ball and chain around their ankles😂.


6.) 31 Aug 2020 09:51:51
Hi Brendan. good to see you mate hope all is well.


7.) 31 Aug 2020 10:03:13
If the leak is true, it's horrendous.

I wasn't a fn of any of the kits for the forthcoming season but having seen the away kit in person I quite like it.

I hope we don't have to pull out the 3rd kit too often other than to please Adidas in the next couple of weeks.


8.) 31 Aug 2020 10:34:39
I'm good Ken thanks. You?

Seems slightly less negative around here at the minute which is good.

I agree with Wazza. Home isn't great, third if true is just terrible, but the black one is surprisingly decent when seen in the shop.


9.) 31 Aug 2020 10:40:42
Its a shocking kit. Worst one I've seen for years.


10.) 31 Aug 2020 14:29:55
😂we have signed a player, better start moaning about the strip 😂. Some odd 3rd kits this year.


11.) 31 Aug 2020 15:17:09
I thought City's was awful when I saw it, and had a little chuckle at the thought of them wearing it. Then I saw our third shirt and wished we had the City one 😂.


12.) 31 Aug 2020 15:26:45
Just can't see this one being well purchased. its manky😂
Im good thanks Brendan. Looking forward to a new season.

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.

Ole is lucky, he already has an excuse in that the club have not made the required reinforcements. If we start with a poor run of results the fans with first turn on the owners and CEO before Ole.
