    Just don't see him performing that much better than the options you already have in his prefered positions. Even if he plays to his highest standards he won't make you that much better as you already are the at a historical high level. And how he will cope with being in/out from the team is anybody's guess.

    Amazing arsenal haven't received a bid for him yet. You'd think financially savvy clubs like Bayern and Juve would be all over him.

    Uh, they may be cheap and directly working with his agent to bring him in for free in the summer for all we know. They don't need to go through Arsenal.

    Sanchez is not going there to be a back up. Probably Guardiola has given him reassurances he will be replacing Aguero in the starting line up and no doubt they will have been preparing since August for him to arrive so I don't think just 6 months or so is enough time to change any plans they already had for him.

    Transfer fee would be a bargain, but there'd probably be a signing-on fee and the wages would be astronomical. Over a 4 year (say) contract the wages would add up to a huge sum - e.g. at 300k per week = over £64m. Or if the wages were £400k/week = over £83m.

    Saw a video on MEN website that said Sanchez replied "What one?" when asked about joining Manchester. 'Sources say' etc, obviously.

    They're savvy. They don't pay 300-400k a week in wages to anyone :lol:

    You are doing what Mara does every time Barca sign a player but not when Real do.

    Let's put it this way: we've been paying that to Zlatan and used to pay similar about 2/3 of that to Schweini, Falcao and Di Maria.

    We can afford it and would much rather pay it to someone who can make a difference every week.

    I don't think he will come, but money certainly isn't an issue.

    Because there is no point bidding if he wants to go to City... or, hopefully, United.

    We're a gigantic club, we can do that.

    That's what properly massive clubs do.

    Yeah I was just surprised that we’ve been negotiating for some time now. I thought it all just happened over past 48 hours or so. Certainly a good sign - means that Arsenal and Sanchez are at least open to idea of dealing and coming to United.

    Edit: Also British media don’t have a fecking clue.

    Yeah, saw your other post after replying.

    I suppose Alexis would have made his feelings clear to Arsenal if it were a No. Still, they would ignore that hoping to raise City but

    1. Why would City allow a smear campaign of sorts if they were 100% confident?

    2. Surely we are not stupid and would tell if the guy is not half-arsed about it?

    Still less than 50-50 though IMO

    The fact that it all comes from the foreign press tells us that none of this intended to come out until the deal was going to be concluded in one way or another. In fact, no one knew in the British press about our interest.

    Now they do, City briefed them - the supposed narrative - about his heart being set on City. If that was the case, we wouldn’t have attempted to go for him, just as we didn’t go for Pep before he signed for City. Heck, you can name countless other instances when clubs aren’t negotiating with a certain individual because they enquired and got a short reply. What’s the point on being on a wild goose chase?

    So you’re right, (I hope) we’re not that stupid trying to sign a guy who won’t entertain the idea of coming here.

    As I've already said, the post I replied to referred to "financially savvy clubs like Bayern and Juve" .... but don't let that stop you banging the drum about how "properly massive" and "gigantic" your club is.

    Exactly, it'd be so unlike us to chase a player that we had no chance over?

    Factor in the agent. He wants a humongous cut if reports are to be believed. Those guys play the media outlets like a bank of harps. This is a web of conflicting interests, the Arse, the player, agent, the Emptyhad Mafia, other clubs... even within United there may not be unanimity
