We're not getting Haaland this summer but, as much as I'd love to see Kane in our shirt, I'd support this. With Cavani's form these past few weeks, a no. 9 shouldn't be high priority this summer. Sancho fits the bill in terms of being young and reasonably attainable without breaking our wage structure or getting into a bidding war, as we would with Kane. He'd also make us more flexible, being roughly equally good on both wings. Could take the starting spot with Rashford or Martial as the no. 9 when Cavani is out. A front three with Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho interchanging would be so exciting. I also haven't given up on Martial yet and would be sad to see him effectively written off.

Any chance it'll be done before the Euros? I can't stomach another entire summer of telling myself that I'm not going to pay attention to this saga only to click into this thread every 10 minutes.

When does the transfer window open? I read 9th June somewhere, but people are talking about this week, or possible deadline before the Euros.

and no chance this thread gets that far this time! If anything it could all over by the end of the week



......or after the Euros.
I'd bet there's nada happening before new kits are ready to launch, so July earliest.

In my opinion, if we don't hear big big big talk this week, with it practically being a done dealio, it'll be after the Euros. I could understand the Glazers wanting a big deal in place before the fans forum, but maybe they don't think like me, which lets face it is quite likely.

9th June and Euros start 11th June. Deals could be done before then but they seem to mostly be free agent (Aguero, Garcia)/players with release clauses (Konate) going through at the moment.

Greetings historians who want to understand how the Caf descended into absolute chaos in summer of 2021.

Hopefully this is the last annual Sancho thread.

I think this'll be a lot more measured, straight forward, and less manic than last summer. Famous last words maybe, but I just don't know how even us can over complicate it this time.

They want to sell for 80, why cant we put in a bid and close the deal...

I know its not FM but 5 signins in 1 summer cant be that tough for a club like UTD (except Grealish other signings would be easy to get)

Sancho(80) + Grealish(70) + Saul(40) +Aarons(30) + Varane(50) = 270 + If possible Lewondosky as a free agent
Martial(50) -Pogba(50)- Jesse(20) -VDB(40)-DDG(50)-Perrera (10)-Dalot(10)-Lindelof(30)=+260

With a net 10M budget we will have this

----------------------------------------------------------Cavani/Greenwood-------------------------------------------
-------Rashford/James -------------------- Bruno/Hannibal ---------------------Sancho/Amad-----
--------------------------------------Grealish/Fred----------------Saul/MCT-------------------------------------------

------Shaw/Telles------------Varane/Axel------Maguire/Baily----------------------AWB/Aarons--------

----------------------------------------------------Henderson/Heaton-----------------------------------------------------

The most obvious transfers in our recent history. Maguire, Bruno, Sancho. Each one taking about 2 years to get done. At least they are definitely of the requisite quality. I’d rather slow methodical transfers than lashing panic money at the likes of ADM or Dybala or whoever.

Nobody will pay 50 for Martial. And it might be tough to get 50 for Pogba with 1 year left, unless a swap deal, but then we have to get Ronaldo since Juve seems like the only likely destination (though staying is more likely) now that Zidane is no longer with RM and there is a bit uncertainty about their rebuild.
We won't sell VDB until next summer earliest, but even if we wouldn't get 40 now. We won't sell Lindelöf as we need an experienced backup that doesn't get injured if someone sneezes on them. Won't get 50 for DDG either on that salary, and I personally think it's Hendo we will sell for 40ish.
Grealish will probably cost more than 70. But it's fun to play FM.

I'll get excited about a new signing when we win a title. Until then, taking pleasure in something is the preserve of winners only.

We just need another video of Ole talking to staff and players, that'll create 200 pages alone of lip reading experts telling us its done

I'd say there's a decent chance he gets announced on Friday June 4th before the fan forum if nobody tells Phelan first and it suddenly leaks earlier. We'll get maybe Jadon, but at least Ole contract extension (I know some disagree, but it will happen so), Pogba new contract and some investment plan to make repairs to Old Trafford.
