    Imagine the RAWK meltdown if we signed Suarez :lol:

    Luckily it's like if we were to hire Rafa as our manager. Fun to imagine, but never actually happening. And thank feck for that.

    Utter bollocks. Like we'd even talk to him or his agent after the shit he's done over the years. If Charlton felt Mourinho was never a United manager then you can only imagine what him and Fergie think of this little twat.

    If we're even considering Bale move, Woodward along with other board members who are contemplating that idea should be arrested immediately.

    Was it in English?? To be fair, it could have been lag on my stream, I saw his mouth moving but it wasn't in sync with the words so I just presumed he was speaking Spanish and they were dubbing it...

    Yeah, he speaks Spanish to the club social media channels. He can understand questions in English but much prefers to reply in Spanish as it is harder for him to put his point across in English as you can see from the one with Sterling.

    Yeah fair enough, hence my confusion on the matter. I didn't see the one with Sterling. Anyway, mystery solved.

    Sounds like a right nob. Being fluent is hardly a requirement but nothing at all is ridiculous.

    £70m? Really? Wouldn't even get Dortmund answering the phone. It's the Sun though so should we expect better?

    Sancho in, Mata and Alexis out would be a dream.

    Would love us to sign Sancho, ticks all the boxes. This week has shown us how much our gameplan can be affected by a couple of injuries, especially if we're looking to play the way Ole wants to play with speed and dynamism.

    Barcelona sign players to replace their older ones before they are past it. We wait until our players are ready for the scrapheap and then desperately try to find replacements. It's one of the main reasons we desperately need a dof, for long term recruitment planning.

    Compared to what Christian Pulisic went for, sounds reasonable.

    Might be annoying but yes he’s quite reliable. I might be mistaken but he was one of the first journalists who wrote that we were after Neymar. His father confirmed it a few months later.

    Luckhurst also wrote a piece on how United tried hard to sign Sancho from City, but City were making it very difficult for the player to join United. United were willing to pursue the signing even after City's stance and were willing to be patient but the player wanted out from City ASAP which gave Dortmund the opportunity to sign him.

    Custis is a decent source for United transfer news and I imagine we'll go back in for him in the summer.

    When did £70m become a laughable price for a promising young player? Sounds reasonable to me.

    Why would Dortmund sell for a reasonable price?

    If city/Liverpool/anyone else had been linked with him for that price, this place would be full of people saying that we’re a joke for missing out on him for such a good price and taking it as gospel.

    Because it’s us that's linked with him, the whole story is obviously bullshit... :lol:
