Silva could have been bought but we stirred away from it. Same as Sneijder and Nasri. I repeat, its not my intention to criticize the management in here but to merely say what, in my opinion is, the major stumbling block for United on this particular issue. I agree with your final part. On the other hand things are getting more difficult lately. Agents are complicating things up and we're not the top of the pack in the EPL anymore(in terms of salary). Shitty and Chelsea can pay more then we do.
