    Our wage structure would at least still be half in tact if we kept him. Easier to get rid too. Sanchez was just a pain money and football wise.

    To be fair Ramsey wanted similar wages to Mkhitaryan according to reports. I know who’d I would rather have in my team.

    He's shite and so is Sanchez. In hindsight, we should have kept him. Lower wages and less injury prone.

    I've always maintained that the mistake was buying him from Dorrmund.

    He was always streaky player with questions about his temperament. He even had a season with Dorrmund worse than what he ever showed with us.

    He was unbelievably bad today

    I think he messed it up literally every time he had the ball. Poor touches, ran into nothing, passed straight to Spurs.

    Know he's a confidence player but jeesus - he looks totally finished.

    It has nothing to do with confidence, his technique is just shit.

    He’s just a typical Man United player.

    He is absolutely dreadful. The Mkhi - Sanchez swap has to be the worst swap deal ever.

    Been taking lessons in desire and effort from Ozil.

    Get him outta here.

    It's like a lose-lose deal instead of win-win.

    He should have hammered Sanchez when he came on too, he could barely run and his legs had gone.

    I kind of feel sorry for him. You can kind of see that he's a sensitive soul. I think that booing when he was subbed on would have affected his confidence a bit.

    In hindsight, we should have kept him to sell him.

    Incredibly frustrating player. We must sell him to West Ham or Everton.

    Yup. In the post apocalyptic hellscape that is life as a Manchester United fan, watching him make a pig’s ear of promising attacking situations is one of the very rare occasions football gives me joy these days.

    And yes, that makes me a bad person.

    No one is going to buy him though.

    He is not good enough for Everton. He is not better than someone like Lanzini either.

    He needs to get out of England I think. Go back to Germany or Italy or something and try to get his shit together.

    Of course there are always interested parties. We just need to be willing to get rid of players.

    Wages. Didn’t he get a pay rise as part of the swap deal?

    It’s a bit weird because he’s not a dislikable sort of player at all. I actually feel quite sorry for him. Yet I still desperately want him to fail and relish every shitty pass he makes. This post-Fergie era has wrecked me.

    I think so, but even then he was on high wages over here.

    Well, he had only stunk up the place for 7 months at that point. His first season was decent enough statistically, and he was 2 years younger.

    I think we could’ve definitely fetched a decent price for him, 15-17m ish.

    Whoever was responsible for bringing him here should have been immediately fired.

    His character was seriously questionable during his time at Dortmund, everyone knew that he always crumbled under any sort of pressure even just by watching from TV, many of us raved about it when we were about to sign him, and yet someone decided it was a good idea to pay for that kind of player 30-40 mil, and all that in last year of his contract. I just can't understand how no one from our manager, scouting team, transfers expert team, etc. was aware of that and didn't stop that transfer. It's not like he was that good player to take that risk, he was your average bundesliga one season wonder ffs.

    Caf was creaming itself over him, let’s not rewrite history here.

    I copped like 2 pages of flacks for suggesting that he’s about on the same level as Ashley Young when he was signed. Even after he’s been crap for months in his 2nd season, there were still plenty defending him, blaming it on ‘the system’.

    Caf is creaming itself over any transfer, at least good part of the forum. However there are some people who actually watch football and learn thing or two about some players. Many of us here doubted his mentality after watching him just few times in the Champions League. And people in the club are actually paid to watch and learn things about players they are about to pay massive money for, unlike caf members who are mostly binge watching players from higlights, clips, for pure fun.

    Would have been funnier to see him go to Inter with Sanchez.

    The season that got him signed for Dortmund was the best i've seen from any player in the Ukrainian league alongside Shevchenko's last two. That was what got him noticed originally, he looked the most talented of that team with Fernandinho, Willian etc and he did play well for them in the CL, then he had turned his career around with a really good season in Bundesliga after a disastrous second one, add in that he was looking a big game player internationally at the time, carrying a minnow Armenia to within 3 points of play off places twice.

    I'm not a big fan of him and there were question marks too that have eventually proven the bigger side of him as a player, but it's just pure revisionism to suggest there was no reason at all scouts couldn't have thought he was worth taking a chance on. It's like saying City scouts should have been fired for buying Fernandinho.

    I never understand why we sold Iwobi and keep Mkhitaryan. I know probably because it is hard to find a buyer for him, but Iwobi is from academy and it means something.
