    Nope, the following players can play right back

    Rafael
    Fabio
    Jones
    Smalling


    The following players can play left back

    Fabio
    Evra
    Evans

    That's more than enough.

    At the risk of being accused of insanity, does anyone else think De Laet could be the O'Shea replacement? I'm not saying that he'll play regularly, but certainly as a back-up player that can play across the defence.

    It's insane, some people just don't understand how football works, United held all the cards here. Player power always wins in these kind of situations.

    The same goes for Nasri btw the way, if the lad wants to leave, Arsenal will have pretty much no choice in the matter.

    ha ha, the thick Liverpool fans thought Kenny had pulled off a "masterstroke" when in fact he got made to look like a desperate feckwit and ended up with egg on his face.

    Venkys getting a quick lesson in the matter of football it seems.

    Lets hope Nasri wants to come to us...

    even if he goes elswhere...really tough on Arsenal.

    Well you've used Fabio twice, and there's a strong chance Smalling or Jones will be standing in for Rio for a fair number of games. Just an injury to Fabio could leave us with two options either side. That should still be enough with a little luck, but it ain't more than enough.

    Great signing, wonder if we'll see him deployed in defence or midfield first?

    It is a signal of their intention... to still be outdone by us at every turn.

    Indeed, i was just curious how they'd try and spin it after being flat out rejected twice by the lad even offering more money, they seem to be living in complete denial and are certain they made us up our bid as "we had to match theirs or there was no deal".

    Idiots, as bad as venkys with their lacking of understanding regarding release clauses.

    I'd rather O'Shea didn't leave for that reason, but don't think we should sign a fullback if he does go. We should have enough, like you say.

    if they had not inserted that 16 million 'trigger', we could well have had to pay upwrads of 25 mill.


    now any other club wanting to do business with them will be highly cautious.


    cant wait for them to go down.

    stick to chicken farming lads. ;)

    Not really its what many have said and expected, we paid the release clause and dependent on the clubs future success included add ons etc etc we havnt paid 20 million for him, in 5 years we might have.

    it will be the reported 16.5 and probably things like "if we win the league and he plays 15 games then another 2m etc". These are good add ons to have as they are all dependent on our success.

    If we've activated the release clause, why on earth do we have to pay even a penny on top of it?

    Looking for the answers...
    I read somewhere that it could rise to c.£20m if United win the League next year, and Jones' appearances for the England first XI etc.

    They appear pretty fair add on's for a player of his potential.

    It's a goodwill thing dependent on our club doing well, pretty normal in cases with young players.

    A sweetner? a lets get it done now and not drag it through the courts all summer gesture?

    The fact remains as his agent confirmed yesterday his release clause is set in stone, our bid was 16.5 million and thats what we're paying, as Steve Keane just said on SSN over the course of time if the addons are activated via our on field success it could reach 20, its not 20 today.

    Goodwill doesn't come into it, he had a release clause, we paid it, the clause was triggered, he's our player (if he agrees terms). £4m+ worth of goodwill, I don't buy it. It may well be that Liverpool's interest and Blackburn playing hardball had indeed forced us to throw in the add-ons to make sure the deal was done and didn't get dragged out.
