  • We seriously underrate Shaw on here, outside of Robertson how many left backs can genuinely be said as definitely better than Shaw is ? You only have to look at Rashford’s form in the final couple of games of the season to see how much better he...
  • I’d imagine it’s just £32 million over a couple of years saved on the wage bill unless it was adjusted towards our transfer budget but I wouldn’t imagine we work like that. Like you said though it’s genuinely a win/win situation as getting the...
  • https://www.theunitedstand.com/articles/single/fabrizio-romano-sanchez-total-agreement-on-a-free-transfer No fee but we’re not paying a single penny in compensation or pay off fees, could have been up to £32 million so this is an unreal deal for us.
  • Don't think there’s been a deal I’ve been as excited about since Rooney in 2004. I’m staying unzipped, just going to let it hang out until it’s completely done.
  • davidmichael replied to the thread Jack Grealish.
    I still think it’s more important to get a pure defensive midfielder in as once Matic gets tired he’s awful and with him being a year older and pre season not being as normal we need to manage his game time really well yet he’s our only defensive...
  • Probably close to a million a week in wages between that lot and then if you throw in Jones and Rojo it’s definitely over a million a week in wages, when you look at it like that it shows just how poorly we’ve been run post Sir Alex up until Ole...
  • This is literally surreal, if someone said to me this time last year we’d sell Sanchez and bring in Sancho as his replacement I’d have pushed for them to be commited to the mad house. If we manage to get Jones, Rojo and Pereira off the books too...
  • We’re a possible dark horse but it’d completely depend on who we got drawn against presuming we got through the group stage, the positive look at it is not many teams are going to improve their squad due to the pandemic. Unless Barca find a...
  • Thing is the injuries had really got hold of Vidic by the time he left and I think he knew himself he couldn’t play at the level needed in the Premier League whereas Serie A was much easier on him, that said he barely played much in his two...
  • I think this could be done by this time next week, plenty of time to do more transfer business then too.
  • I wouldn’t say Zlatan did as everyone knew he was very much a short term signing and was someone they could both learn from, Lukaku on the other hand was signed as our long term number one striker with Martial and Rashford expected to support him...
  • davidmichael replied to the thread Raul Jimenez to Man Utd?.
    Let’s give Martial a whole season of playing with Sancho, Rashford, Fernandes and Pogba and being used to the role seeing as this season was his first as a centre forward after playing wide for pretty much his entire career with us. I think...
  • davidmichael replied to the thread Raul Jimenez to Man Utd?.
    He must be angling for a new contract at Wolves so we’re being linked with him, would be a good buy but cost a fortune and we’re well stocked up front currently.
  • Pro’s: Good pure defender, good in the air, does the basics well, good pace, pretty much always fit to play, lots of experience, has something to prove, played in international tournaments and Champions League. Con’s: Awful on the ball, lapses...
  • If we manage to move on all of Dalot, Jones, Bailly/Smalling, Rojo, Pereira/Lingard and Sanchez then it’s believable we’d be able to bring in three players too with one obviously being Sancho. Personally I believe we need a defensive midfielder...
