    Pft, you're just saying that to get a bigger contract where you are now.

    Particularly as we don't want him.

    I seriously cannot fathom why anyone would want us to sign this guy.

    Ditto. I doubt city want him either. His agent is desperately trying to get him an improved contract.

    Exactly my meaning (I should probably have made that clearer) - if we signed him after the strength of the MUTV denial then I'd be stunned.

    Benfica won't pay him a lot. More likely he's trying to find his client a rich club somewhere else by pretending there's interest from United. Not the first time it happens.

    That MUTV denial was hilarious. Almost sounded like we were offended to be linked with him!

    I think he'd be a signing along the line of Valencia and Young. Valencia is obviously getting somewhere near world class as a winger now and Young is top class too but when we signed both the majority of our fans were a little underwhelmed.

    I think it's our value policy. I think of it in Football Manager terms!

    Signing players of a current ability of 160-170/200 and potential ability of 180/200 for £15m-£20m represents a more stable return on your investment than going for a player of 160-170/200 and a potential ability of 190/200 for £30m+

    I think we are fairly confident as a club that we can get the "Value" players up and around the ability we need as a squad player while risking big money on players who potentially have a higher ceiling obviously offers greater risk.

    Then every now and again you get a Valencia who manages to go above and beyond expectation and looks like a bargain for £17m and similarly in the higher risk strategy, you get players signed for £30m who never reach their ability and are considered a flop.

    As Sam says, it's like the club were almost embarrassed at the very suggestion of signing him :lol:

    I know, what a laugh. We've worse players than Gaitan already playing for us. He's obviously not the muppets choice and they're getting a bit giddy about the MUTV denial, despite MUTV generally talking shite. The denial they're talking about was probably the one a few months ago in the papers.

    Kagawa may skewer the hopes of Hazard but signing him will at least pout an end to this story.

    Gaitan's agent making noises about us being interested points to United not signing the player. United generally ask the players, and their representatives to stay silent on any possible transfers.

    Agreed. and it s the same story with hazard - he mentioned us a couple of times. For me it s a clear indication that neither one or the other is coming to OT.

    well it's always hazardous to skewer hopes but I'll be more than pouting if we don't sort out our mf mess

    I would be surprised if we signed Kagawa (strong possibility) AND Gaitan (I have doubts that we are actually wanting to sign him).
    They're of similar profiles, position-wise.

    We don't need Gaitan so not sure if we are, or if we should be, sniffing around him.

    I think it's over. We're getting Kagawa and Gaitan is heading to Wigan.

    Definately over probably wasnt even a runner, chances are we used the supposed interest in him as a nice smokescreen to keeping an eye on kagawa. The hazard interest was always gonne get outta the bag at some stage.

    His agents a massive tool

    Doesn't look like it. Maybe Mendes has him on standby in case he moves Nani on.

    Let's see. RedRichio said Hazard was going to City. He ended up at Chelsea. RedRichio said Vertoghen would go to Arse and M'Vila to be completed soon as well. Looks like it will be Spuds to get Vertoghen and no word on M'Vila yet. RedRichio said there is no chance of us getting Gaitan.

    Id be putting money on Gaitan to United if I were a betting man.

    I don't think he would fit in now but they were calling it a done deal a few months back...

    I completely forgot about this fella. Is he even real or was he dreamt up to fill the papers when transfer speculation was otherwise slow?
