Well if thats true, and United know that and are still staying and putting out briefs that they're still confident, then they can expect and deserve all the backlash they get when he goes to Chelsea.Obviously we want reliable updates from tier 1, but when someone who’s quite established in the game says something like that, it’s worrying.
He’s got nothing to gain for bullshitting about it as he doesn’t really have a dog in the fight.
Im taking what Redknapp says more seriously than all the tweets we’ve been seeing.
Pretty sure Fergie is aware that 'Arry is on Talk sports and various media outlets a lot. Has Fergie lost it then?I was just guessing it was Fergie due to his good relationship with Harry.
But whoever it is, I’m not doubting Harry has spoken to someone high up in the hierarchy.
To be honest people in a club aren’t as secretive as you would think. I’ve met one of the non-executive directors at Utd in a business meeting a few times. He was openly critical of Jose while he was still manager and also shared information which you just wouldn’t expect to hear from someone on the inside.If someone from the very top of Utd is telling things to people who go out and blab it to the media, then that guy needs to be sacked first and foremost.
It sounds peak Woodward era that does.Well if thats true, and United know that and are still staying and putting out briefs that they're still confident, then they can expect and deserve all the backlash they get when he goes to Chelsea.
It makes no sense for us to be sticking around if they know for a fact he wants to go to Chelsea. If he truly does, then you can expect us to be out of the race pretty soon then.
Absolutely.It sounds peak Woodward era that does.
If it pans out in a bad way now, it shows we've not learnt a thing.
I’ve no idea who it is mate but if our chief executive is being recorded chatting about stuff going on in the club with some lads down the pub, I don’t think anything is watertight when it comes to info being leaked.Pretty sure Fergie is aware that 'Arry is on Talk sports and various media outlets a lot. Has Fergie lost it then?
It makes no difference to them. They still have to sort his wages out either way.I’ve no idea who it is mate but if our chief executive is being recorded chatting about stuff going on in the club with some lads down the pub, I don’t think anything is watertight when it comes to info being leaked.
What I would say is, IF it is true that he does want to go to Chelsea then a lot of things add up to supplement that side of the story. The fact that Barca were offering him to Chelsea when they already had an agreed deal on the table with Utd suggests Barca may have been aware already that FDJ would leave if Chelsea came in for him. I’m just guessing. But yeah not comfortable with what he’s saying at all.
And we are still throwing out briefs that we are confident as of yesterday. Wtf is going on?Stumbled across this tweet. This ain’t good news! Apparently Harry Redknapp has been told from someone at the very top at Utd that de Jong wants to go to Chelsea. I’m wondering if it’s Fergie who’s told him this.
We all get that the key to recruitment is to get the proper top player in, rather than get someone who is slightly better than what you have then have to upgrade them soon after.Absolutely.
If United know for a fact that he wants to go to Chelsea, then whats the point in sticking around and briefing we're confident? It makes absolutely no sense at all.
This whole transfer is an absolute mess. It needs to be done one way or another sharpish
A few weeks ago I laughed at people saying this was our worst ever saga.
Yup which makes this all the more confusing.
FFS geebs, this thread is moving so fast it's hard to keep up. But yeah, i've never wiped them on the curtainsYeah but bet you didnt have to wipe them on the curtains
We're going for the magic 2000!It's the best thread on the caf
I’m guessing Chelsea will by hook or crook pay extra to cover the wages. If it’s true FDJ is happy to go to Chelsea then I think it will get moving pretty swiftly. Even possibly a compromise on FDJ part. Either way I think chelsea would just pay whatever it takes.They should remember that him wanting to go somewhere isn't the actual issue here, it's the Barce/wage thing.
So it still wouldn't be a swift conclude.
It's at the top if someone from United had told Harry that and we're throwing out briefs that we're confident. JesusA few weeks ago I laughed at people saying this was our worst ever saga.
That sounded silly when we had the Fabregeas nonsense, the Herrera mystery suit gang and delayed a window, the year of Sancho and the long Wan Bissaka and Magure pursuits to only pay the exact original fee.
But I think this could actually get quite high up the list now as silliest one yet.
Well no, the responsible thing to do would be to walk away if thats the case. No shame in admitting things have changed.To not look like absolute idiots, but just regular idiots?
