For such a low release clause, it makes sense to gamble on this guy in a position that we all know needs strengthening before the deadline.
How will we tell if Martial is upset? He walks (yes walks) around the field with a face like a smacked arse already.Surely worth a gamble at such a fee
Except if he comes good he will upset Martial and potentially block Greenwood's path to the first team so obviously we shouldn't sign him..
I don't understand why we wouldn't want obligatory to buy?It's the selling club that puts the obligation to buy into the deal, not the buying club, otherwise literally anybody could take him on loan then just send him back.
It would take weeks for Ed and The Judge to bargain this down to 11.5 plus add ons plus more add ons so I can't imagine this being done in a day.For such a low release clause, it makes sense to gamble on this guy in a position that we all know needs strengthening before the deadline.
No, he's not just sitting in a used cars sales lot for anyone to take for a spin. The buying club can just as well include a fixed option/obligation in their offer. Plus the story claims that we offered a loan + obligation which they rejected.It's the selling club that puts the obligation to buy into the deal, not the buying club, otherwise literally anybody could take him on loan then just send him back.
Exactly. The sort of money being spoken about should be pocket change for a club like us.Basically you can’t lose with this one.
if he turns into a player you save yourself 50m minimum. If he doesn’t, youl likelystill get your money back.
makes too much sense for us!
Insurance to sign what off?If it was a free transfer you might get away with it, but not for a fee in the region of £20m, you wouldn't be able to get the insurance to sign it off for starters.
Gaich could also be a derivation of the Croatian surname Gajić. Many Croatians have emigrated to Argentina after WWII.Not to mention 3/4 of Argentinians have Italian ancestry and many qualify for Italian passports. Italy is the natural move for them and often legally uncomplicated.
Completely agree.I'd prefer us to do something like this rather than getting an expensive loan for someone who will come and be average. If we can sign a promising enough striker on the cheap, they might either develop into a decent player for us or we can sell them on for a similar fee (or loan them out if we want to bring someone major in). You'd think, with United's scouting power, we would be able to locate a fairly cheap young striker who would usually go to the likes of Ajax, Sevilla and Lille and become great. They would certainly get games in the last few months of this season. Gaich looks talented and Tim Vickery from BBC was very positive about him apparently. I doubt it will happen but this sort of creative signing excites me much more than Ighalo on loan or something.
I completely agree with everything you said, I was being sarcastic.How will we tell if Martial is upset? He walks (yes walks) around the field with a face like a smacked arse already.
The reason we are in this position is cos we have two forwards neither of which want to or are really capable of leading the line. Having someone who will make the runs for crosses, attack the near post, attack the far post, anticipate things would be wonderful again.
I'm tired of these blocking arguments. There are a few other Lingards in the team. We need good options for each position. Then if they don't show it in training or on the field they just don't play.
Too many players have just been stealing a living. These are man utd shirts these guys are wearing - they should be playing for them. Noone has a right to one.
We are in desperate need hence any sort of links at all. If we are judgibg this on low cost then we might as well not bother at all.How does him signing make a difference? In that case it’ll be nobody coming in and it’ll still be a lost season.
