    ok money in this instance maybe didn't play a factor, not too sure though, it is Bayern the most atractive proposition in Bundesliga, many players let run their contracts and move to Bayern in a free. At that point other teams have the same chance to sign those players? or players might think they will have a better contract with more money and a chance to win that Bundesliga year after year. Not much of a choice

    Always liked Rabiot. He’d be a good signing I think. Sancho would be the dream move in the summer for our right wing.

    Hasn't Dybala been below par this year? Only "big" player there is Neymar.

    Would love someone like Mbappe or Sancho to be honest.

    Dybala has had a down year, I think Juve have been trying to play him on the right wing, and it hasn't worked out, plus he doesn't seem to get along with Allegri. But I still think we should go in for him, it would be different for him on our right wing, under Ole. We should buy low on him.

    Take the lengthy discussions to the relevant threads lads. This isn't the thread for it.

    Sancho most realistic and probably the best fit for the team Ole is building.

    Can’t see PSG ever selling us Mbappe or Neymar.

    Sancho is actually a RW so I’d take him over Dybala based on the position we need sorted.

    Well said.

    I’d really prefer to stay away from Raiola’s players but I wonder if de Ligt should be an exception?

    Whoever is still genuinely interested in Bale, needs their head checked.

    - His calf muscle problems persist; he's missed a month this season again and we're only now entering the busy end.
    - He's on ~600k pw which would be a huge pain in the backside when we get to renew contracts. If he fails to spark, we got another Sanchez situation on our hands.
    - Whilst technically a great player with some amazing performances, he's struggled for consistency pre and post Ronaldo-era and has failed to become the main man and fulfil expectations.
    - He's turned us down on any given opportunity.

    Feck Bale

    Come on Mike, don't be a killjoy.
    He still has several good years of football and you know that he is precise at important moments.
    Expensive? We free you from Rashford, you can include him if you want.

    That salary can't be right, there's only two or three clubs in world football that offer those wages and none of them are in Italy.

    Even if it was Euros, it's still not that must less that he £ equivalent.

    No wonder Arsenal told him to feck off.

    And how come Juventus seem to have unlimited funds anyway?

    If true, this can have a massive effect on the rest of contracts at Juve. I am more inclined to think that he has a nice signing bonus which bbc included in his wages.

    Reckon it's because he's joining them on a free, with wages that high surely no sign-on bonus for him.

    Even if that is essentially amortising the sign-on fee, it still sounds like a lot. Well over the top in fact.

    For example, if in the CEO's mind 150/400 comes out of the salary budget and 250/400 from the transfer budget it might seem more palatable. Till you realise that 250k pw is still about £40m over 3 years for Ramsey. Would anyone else pay him that sign-on fee or anywhere near?

    Insane if true, this kind of deal will be the death of football as we know it, who's paying the wages ? Certainly not all those empty seats in the Allianz

    What's Bayern Munich gotta do with it? I think the death of football for the average Joe was when Neymar moved for almost quarter of a billion.

    Isn’t it usually a problem when signing players on a free transfer, that you have to pay more wages?

    Also, as they are not paying a transfer fee, they can amortise this across the length of the contract.

    They're saying the same thing. 400k is gross, 250k or so would be net I guess. English media report figures in gross, in Italy they report it as net.

    7.5m net is 250k a week gross I think is what he is saying.

    7.5m a year is about 145k a week net.

    That's the name of the Juve stadium since 2017, probably need the naming rights to finance wages for Ronaldo and Ramsey ?
    Can't believe I'm mentioning Ronnie in the same light as Ramsey !

    Well that's disappointing, I'm dreading the day United sell the naming rights to Old Trafford.
