Correctly predicted France to win World Cup 2018
- Jun 29, 2017
There could be some truth to that, I had heard rumours that United thought that they could get a Sancho deal for about £60m, how true that is, we'll never know.We're not going to pay €120m, we don't have the money .... We had no intention of paying any big sums for Sancho, we've tried to get him on the cheap because of 'covid discount' and been left with our pants round our ankles.
But I've just felt all along that United were only targeting two positions this window, Creative MF and a RW (Grealish & Sancho) and thought that we would get the pair for less than £100m.
Donny was a stroke of luck, becoming available at less than half the price of Grealish, and the club showed that they can act swiftly if they have a mind to do so.
I've never felt that a CB, LB or Defensive MF were seriously on our radar, and even if we do sign Telles, I think it's just an opportunity that fell into our laps, similarly to Donny....
To be fair, I think that they are both terrific players and will definitely improve us, it's great business at £50M for the pair.
What concerns me now, is that the club now panic buy a couple of journeymen, who are no better than anything we currently have.
