    Ok, cool, this is a good idea.

    I'll try and reprise stuff I've already said and that is in running so to speak.

    United are not signing gaitan or strootman.

    It seems obvious now but wasn't when I first mentioned it: vertonghen to arse, and probably m'vila but his agent has spoken to inter.

    I was told about our interest in kagawa about six weeks ago but as far as my mate knows nothing has progressed dramatically since then. His agent spent last week in Italy talking to Milan and juve.

    Obviously we and city want hazard. Mate says he's told united that they are his preferred option but is also gobbing off to anyone that will listen in France about the money that city have offered. Nasri said he preferred us last summer then cocked off having agreed terms.

    City have met with rvp's agent and have at least been told that he'd consider a move there.

    As of last week fletcher has no plans to retire.

    Can't remember what else. I'll get back on stuff!

    I'll start then..this guy on twitter https://twitter.com/#!/FreddieBoswell7 saying that we've signed a player from Udinese(whom he wouldn't reveal the identity of) and we're hugely interested in Subotic(confusingly he also says that we've signed Subotic)

    I saw that. He's talking about asamoah from udinese. I checked on that one and matey hadn't heard anything. He said that Liverpool have watched him it no mention from anyone at united.

    Oh, and the news on pogba is that there is no news.

    I wonder why aren't we interested in or linked to Gokhan Inler. A classy central midfielder at the right age with 2 good feet. good passing and an eye for goal. Everytime i have watch Udinese and Napoli i've been very impressed with him

    Yep I really do. Was brilliant for Napoli in those two games against Chelsea. Seems to have a bit of steel/midfield destroyer about him as well. Exactly what we're after.

    People who may genuinely have inside knowledge on things tend to keep it to themselves, otherwise they don't have access to that knowledge for very long. People who like to spend all their time telling everyone they have inside knowledge seem to (in my experience) actually know next to feck all in reality.

    Why realise information when big money can be made is kept very quiet. If I had information I would nip to the bookies and make some cash.

    The thread is harmless though. If it's all complete poppycock it will be documented as such. Meanwhile, we can all reserve judgement on the validity of whatever is said, while we at least know where it is supposed to have been obtained.

    What was really getting on my tits was people alluding to having information from mysterious sources without ever saying what the source was and what the information was. Hopefully this will be an end to that.

    What Pogue said. I can't see the harm in having this thread. This is the transfer forum after all and most of it is speculation as it is as nobody but the player, agent involved and the clubs involved know the full story.

    Only time I've being remotely close to ITK, Stephen Ireland was telling friends and family he was gonna sign for us from City, and years before I saw "Nottingham Real-estate" magazines in the back of Darren Huckerbys Subaru WRX (parked outside hooters too) when he was on-loan at Forrest......both moves never materialised........

    Thus I have retired from international muppetry, just have a fap every now and then.

    It's entirely possible he knows someone at the club. However the chances of that person himself being aware of our transfer dealings is slim. So I agree with you but I doubt RedRichio is making stuff up unlike friendlytramp.

    Only Fergie and David Gill will know what's really happening.

    Also this thread will have a nice list so we can laugh at our ITKs in August.

    I know, and in fairness he does seem to be a bit more genuine, posting stuff he's been told as oppose to GoldT who just made up rubbish or posted stories that had already been posted, and then went mental when people didn't believe him.

    He probably didn't get the memo. All twitter posts should go in the twitter thread.

    No such thing as ITK unless you know SAF.

    Last summer my uncle met SAF at some public event and asked him about Nasri in which SAF replied that we had agreed personal terms and we were close to signing him...it goes to show that even coming from 'horses mouth' it is not always accurate!

    I miss GT. He single handedly proved that journalists know feck all about anything when it comes to transfer stories. That took serious dedication.

    That is entirely accurate though, since it's no secret that United had agreed terms and were close to signing him, until City made a bigger offer that United refused to match. So what you heard "from the horses mouth" was true.

    Apparently.

    Well firstly, stuff gets out all the time. It's almost inevitable. Ducker in the times said we'd agreed a deal for de gea in January and it was common knowledge that we wanted young a long time before we signed him. Everybody knows who wants hazard. The scouts have all been sitting next to each other at games.

    Anyway, modric. Some of this is common knowledge. Chelsea were trying to get modric last summer. I'm not really sure why but Daniel levy hates Chelsea and was super keen not to sell to them. There was obviously a figure at which he'd have to sell. Levy knew that fergie loves modric and went to united and said you can have him for x. United couldn't or wouldn't pay the figure but approached modric's agent to see if it was worth trying to negotiate. Essentially modric said that he only wanted to go to Chelsea so we didn't follow it up. We asked to be kept informed in future. Anyway, spurs have intimated to us that he would be available for the right price this summer and there's a suggestion that the player would be more open to coming to us. However, united are very very wary of getting into negotiations with spurs because levy just never blinks.

    I guess it's not really a corker of a story, but I think the jist is that modric is available at the right price and obviously less than last year and that we'd like him but it would be really complicated to pull off.

    I'm going to get pelters for that but it is what it is!

    It also shows that not even gill and fergie are 100 per cent sure, until the deal is effectively signed.

    Agree with this. I don't get "this is happening, it's done" etc. he doesn't give me figures because he doesn't know. All he can do is tell me who's being looked at, whether negotiations are going on etc.

    And he doesn't work for a club. It's a consultancy that clubs subcontract to to scout particular players/tournaments etc.
