    Go full muppet and replace him with Griezmann. Snatch De Ligt from them too and sign Rabiot, AwB and Bruno. Ok time to wake up, dang it.

    That's why I said pretend, I know that the lad is delusional but it's at a point where he is probably the footballer that I respect the least. Funnily enough, people were celebrating when he left Raiola but then he proceeded by actually acting like a twat in the press.

    Seems to me you've made up a scenario in your head and now going from there.

    Where did you get this info about replacing those 3 with youth? We've been linked with Bruno, Rabiot, Oblak, Ajax keeper, Frankfurt striker etc. << None of them are youth.

    i won't go crazy hyperbole, but part of me wonders if we could genuinely see the end of De Gea, Lukaku, Pogba and basically no like-for-like replacements. After this lukaku story, i'm starting to wonder if the Bruno rumours are because Pogba is leaving :nervous:

    Is Ole going full nuclear?

    If anybody needs shipping out first, it's our entire CB collection, Sanchez, Young, Matic then Lukaku

    Yeah, I missed 'pretend' in your post.

    Yeah, its too blunt. Maybe deal is really close, that's the reason he said it. Hopefully we get good money and then sign a better player who suits how we want to play.

    Yes. He wants to go to Barcelona and has reportedly agreed terms. The problem (at least according to Duncan Castles) is the fee.

    Griezmann's release clause currently stands at €200m. This will drop to €120m later in the window. Atletico are demanding the full €200m for any Barca deal because they say the club reached the agreement with Griezmann prior to the reduction in value of the clause.

    This is presumably why he is now having to consider options outside La Liga.

    Linked by who though? The media? We were linked with Rice, Pepe and De ligt too, what happened there? Rabiot will stay as Leonardo has gone back. Oblak is inferior to De Gea. Bruno we might get, but that not enough if we sell the mentioned 3 players!
    The scenario I've made up in my head is most probably what will happen! That's what happens if you don't have a CL place and make a knee-jerk managerial decision!

    looks like we need to be all over that after the Rom bombshell. Whose currently/openly looking for a move that's an instant upgrade? Also might help Griezmann to get away from Spain after his flip flopping :devil:

    How else is anyone suppose to know which players we've been linked with other than media? Where have we been linked to youth to replace the likes of De gea,Pogba,Lukaku? ....Nowhere other than your own imagination.

    Somehow I trust Media links than whats inside your head, You know its a safer option.

    :lol:......Ok.

    He's not getting "shipped" out, though. He's an asset that can bring in a massive fee, and if he's not in the managers plans you cash in now before we devalue you even more. Its harder selling the likes of Young, Rojo, Darmian etc. Who wants that lot?

    We are one of the few clubs who might be willing to meet his wage demands (reportedly £350k per week net).

    I would guess that PSG would be favourites, though.

    Ed and Ole have a tough job on their hands. Our top players are clearly on their way out this year or next. Top players across Europe want to play with other top players, but they know ours are leaving.

    So I guess their objective is to buy potential and build top players...but Ole doesn't seem the wisest choice for that objective if you consider his CV.

    If he joins PSG then it is not at all a sensible career move. Yes they might dominate the league but it hardly is an achievement. Yes Man united are in a mess but he could have taken that as a challenge. Become a leader and bring back the club where it belongs. But again I don't blame him not choosing us.

    If we don't get a new CF, I think that can be enough, given that we spent big money in the midfield zone.

    “I have a contract and I have to respect my club. If something happens, you know, I think the teams and my agents have to do the talking. I just make my decision and stay out of it.” - Lukaku...talking about it.

    It's alright, we don't mind that. i think that every united supporter would take him on foot to italy.

    For the price we paid for him, he's nowhere near good enough.

    The simple fact that he can't win a header if his life depended on it and with his body says it all. that's without talking about his extremely bad first touch.

    Let's let him be another team's problem.

    Whilst I agree I think it's clear that Rashford is favourite if fit. If that is the case it is stupid to leave a £75m striker on the bench who hasn't really performed since his early form. Get rid and strengthen the team elsewhere... but that's the issue, it's whether we do that.

    Perhaps Lukaku is aware of the rather large fee we are demanding for his transfer, so he is coming out in the press with quotes like this to help reduce it by basically saying he wants out?

    Or I'm just reading too much into it.

    He could get the ball in the net now and then apart from that he was a complete donkey. Not up to standard.

    Griezmann Martial and Rashford as a fluid interchanging front 3 would be such a pleasure to watch. We'd have to get the midfield right of course for it to work though.

    Greenwood also waiting in the wings to replace either Martial or Rashford as I believe he will become far better very soon.

    Nice to see all that talk of us losing our better players. Not seen anything about getting rid of Young, Lingard, Jones and and and.

    Potentially losing Lukaku, Pogba and DDG in one window while sticking to all that shit we have. Jesus...

    As I said I liked him. Hope he stays in the reserves if Inter don't cough up now.
