    My thoughts exactly. While I would prefer Jovic I also wouldn't mind a Lukaku swap for Icardi if lukaku wants to leave. People are saying they don't want Icardi and the baggage he comes with but he will go to another club with his baggage and score 20 goals per season for them.

    Moreover we need experience in this team. Having 3 young strikers be it Felix or Jovic including Rashford and Martial is not going to win us titles( Look at City Liverpool Chelsea Tottenham and even Arsenal's attack they all have experience). Sometimes when I look at the formation of us vs teams like Barca I wonder how we would get a goal with Martial and Rashford in attack

    Icardi also is or was the captain of Inter so he obviously has some leadership qualities which is needed in this team

    I'd rather have Lukaku in the team than Icardi.

    The one from Celtic. I said get him when he was there. I'm a fan of him, he's got good footwork.

    He was a person of interest to me too, but having seen him at Lyon, he hasn’t been that impressive at a higher level.

    It always does coming out of Portugal, we go through this saga every year with at least one player in that league where there's stories every few days and nothing ever comes of it. He ends up at Valencia, Monaco, Sampdoria or somewhere in Russia. I'm not saying this one won't be true, I'm saying Portugese newspapers seem to be fantastic at painting their players as wanted by all of Europe for outrageous fees when they rarely seem to go straight to the bigger teams.

    We start Jesse Lingard. I'd bite your hand off to have Isco instead.

    "...United have already promised at least three signings and Herrera's exit will increase that to at least four..."

    Ed Woodward reminds me of Mark Goldbrige for some reason.

    Well if it was upto Marca then we would be selling Pogba in exchange of Bale along with paying for Pogba wages for his whole Real Madrid stay .

    Coming to the tweet we need to ask for atleast 160 million pounds if not double of what we paid .

    I agree he comes across like real joker, with goldbridge I'm sure that's his job.

    I'd be fine with four signings if Herrera stayed. With him going we really need five, but if we really only intend to buy "real quality" then I can't see us buying more than four players, because that would take us way above that 230 million mark.

    Fail to get CL football and the wages go up for most players, while some are just not reachable in that case. I'm not too optimistic all things considered.

    Marca spout utter tripe and should be treated with the same contempt as trash like the daily star

    I actually don't mind Goldbrige. The way he winds people up amuses me but I admit he has the look of a joker. Woodward has the face of someone you can't take seriously.

    He rejected them because he thinks he won't play enough.
    Time for the media to spin the story and question his ability :)

    I think he'd be good enough for us

    Didn’t his dad come out and say that Jovic rejected Barca because he was unsure about a starting spot in the team?
    Right after that the great mes que un club comes out and says yeah well, he’s very meh, we never really wanted him, it’s not like we scouted him 15 times or something. The very thought of some player rejecting them is too much for them to take
    Just look at the picture used,Jovic all sad and heartbroken with a thumbs down emoji to boot :lol:

    It's because they both seem like Walter Mitty types, or real-life Alan Partridges.

    Yes but it's ok, because Barca will allow Ajax to give them first choice on all their best players, so everyone wins!

    So why do we always miss out on the best players and rely on mopping up what other big clubs are happy to get rid of?

    I would sign him to be honest. Him or Eriksen would be great. Both are Prem proven and are in their prime

    Because we are based in Manchester. And managed to break the world record and sign the most sought after player on the market from another super club anyway, and beat Manchester City, who I imagine you have down as one of the clubs who get all the best players, to two players in the last 18 months. Oh, and we beat every top club in Europe to Dalot.

    Basically, your narrative is false, and just the venting of a frustrated fan because our team isn’t the best.
