Not sure who he is but that sort of fee structure wouldn't be too bad, wouldn't hamstring us for other transfers this summer.

Who is Daniel Harris is he reliable ?
By his own admission he doesn't do transfer gossip very often, I think all of his transfer news is in that Twitter thread. He spoke about Daniel James, Eriksen and Dybala last summer.

Why is he quoting himself?
He’s referring to his previous record of posting transfer tips on Twitter, I think. Above that, he references his post about Daniel James coming to United. I think his point is that he is not a prolific bullshitter and doesn’t post gossip for the sake of it

OK gonna show my ignorance here. I've never seen the guy play a whole match, just clips on youtube. Having 2 young kids has meant I've missed many of our matches this season, and seen absolutely no matches of other teams. Purely from youtube, this guy looks like he doesn't have express pace (I'm talking Kanchelskis/ Giggs/ Ronnie levels) and doesn't seem particularly strong, but has some nice dribbling skills and a decent eye for a pass.

Is that an accurate assessment? i.e., physically not top notch but a small skillful player with lots of talent. Am I underestimating him?
I don't know about top speed but definitely has explosive acceleration. Brilliant dribbler and very creative. Double figures for goals and assists the last 2 seasons.

I genuinely think we should not be going beyond 80 m for him.
There are a number of other players available, granted they are not english and might not sell as many shirts but we are in the process of building a team here and should not be paying over the odds for just one unproven in the league player.

He's the first person I've seen mentioning those type of figures, so if that ends up being right or close to correct then you have to say fair play to the bloke.

He doesn't do transfer rumours. So when he says something, he's not making it up, doesn't mean it will happen.

Yep. He rarely posts transfer related news.

Yep - freelance writer and a Utd fan. Does not partake in transfer bullshit so if he does say something then he has it on what he would regard as good authority.

We all love United
I don’t know where he gets his source from but he has to be pretty confident to pull those figures out if he doesn’t partake in transfer rumours like you lot said

Explosive acceleration (more necessary for wings anyway) but average top speed, brilliant dribbler, excellent reliable technique all around, very good quick interplay, versatile, very good movement, very good passer and brilliant vision, very good decision making in the final 3rd, good finisher, incredibly productive for someone so young and will provide the key pass or finish all the time.

He's as clear of a world class prospect as there is right now (and someone who was world class this past season anyway).
Good video showcasing his full ability, and both wings:

This does have the feeling of smoothness about it. Not like our last two transfers that felt like they could pull the plug on it any minute

Something must be fundamentally wrong within united's transfer system. When other clubs finish their job swiftly we seem to drag our legs to get any transfer done. Not getting bruno in last summer was a major fiasco. Hope they have learnt a valuable lesson.

The season ended 3 days ago.

feck - Sancho, Martial, Rashford and Greenwood are going to seriously be a threat if they all click with him. Be rare to see them all on the pitch at the same time I'm sure but our attack will be potent as hell.

His vision is very underrated.

This feels inevitable. Hard to get the muppet juices flowing when you know it’s a cert to go through.

Someone wise already stated in the thread that the feeling most of us have about this, might be because we follow only united related story's. So it might feel slow because of that and that you and me only read when its almost done for other clubs. I mean 90% of this thread is preparing bid tweets, nothing substantial as the tweets last 48 hours. This is going alot faster then eds usual work.

But i really understand your frustration. I would add aswell that we are a club which generates alot more fuzz then most clubs.

Even though it’s been obvious for awhile and it doesn’t even feel like a saga to me (because it isn’t one) my muppet juices are still flowing very well, a world class player on his way to fix a problem we’ve had for years.

I've seen every one of Sancho's goals, assists, passes and dribbles from these past two seasons about 20 times already yet I keep watching more compilations :drool: The muppet in me can't help it, what a player.

We are slow but you are also emotionally attached to United transfers. For example, If Kai Haverts goes to Chelsea..They have been going at it for a few months too.

Awful just awful, on the cusp of signing a player for 100 million, sack Ed, sell Ole.

A forward line of Martial, Rashford and Sancho with Bruno behind is actually a superb setup. All of them at the start of their career also. And to think we have Greenwood in our ranks also... we are a very lucky set of supporters if we get Sancho in. Excited.

When you put it like that. Still, I think I’ll probably tug one out when I see Sancho, Martial, Rashford in the starting XI.

Even the Torres deal to City for a mere €25m (+€10m addon) has taken many months for them to negotiate.
You'd think that what is likely to be the biggest transfer of the window will take some time to dot the i's.

That it's not as easy as agreeing a fee and wages over a pint and a bag of ready salted crisps at the back table of The Duck's Head is just crazy to me too. Absolutely bonkers. We should have had this deal sorted before the lad was even born.

Some clubs tap up players when they're teenagers. We are tapping up their parents when they are teenagers.

This is some Back to the Future style shit, right here.

Yup, his vision, decision making and passing ability is part of what makes him so effective and why combined with his dribbling, I think he's just as safe of a success as they get.

Gonna get a criticism/doubt I have off my chest before I get excited, he doesn’t have the same explosiveness as traore and he seems to slow down a bit with the ball that mightn’t suit our attack, but since he’s still young I’m sure ole will encourage him to keep it moving as quick as possible.
We technically could go 442 with pogba and Fernandes in the middle :keano:
