Close the door. It's cold in here.
Yeah true, after Bayern winning the title 8 years in a row they sure look a spent force
Maybe we're just not completely gullible and shit the bed at the first dodgy report?The people writing “obvious bullshit” or “classic case of....” or “nothing to worry about” are the ones who are worried about that Sky tweet. I can definitely see enough dithering from us to the point where we miss out on him. Wouldn’t be confident in us at all to get that done.
A great discussion is some good thing. Arrogant posts like this is not. CL knockout trophy? Should i mention how often United even failed to get to the knockout stages? Or how often it failed to progress, with games and results which were like jokes? If you didn't noticed the state youre club is in: the United of the last years got its own "Nowhere near Bayern shield", by miles.What titles? The effort title? CL knockout stages trophy? Nowhere near Bayern shield?
Assuming that "sending a message of intent" = spending loads of money, we've been sending them out for years. Now we have to actually pay for some of it.With Chelsea transfers they are sending a message of intent.
If we miss this, we should no longer claim we are one of the biggest clubs with aspirations of Europe. nNext summer the field will be littered with suitors if Jadon keeps his form. Take the plunge now and we are taking a very strong step to re claiming some greatness.
Same here. Aren't we in contact with Dortmund from almost a year now ? Not to mention we have so much players to axe, we can be more of a selling club this summer than purchasing.I am sure there will still be many that don't think it is a negotiating tactic from United and they are entitled to their opinion on that but I am still confident we will get this over the line.
People often say this but who wants to buy our shit? Nobody wants to pay for our players & even if they do, they then can't negotiate contracts because of how much we overpay the dross we employ.Same here.

We've found a buyer for Darmian, imagine that... and Inter raised surprisingly big sum for Lukaku, we simply need to start making things happen by actually doing something on the market.People often say this but who wants to buy our shit ?

Well apparently depending on which media outlet, they couldn't afford to bid for Hakimi. That was 30m euros.The reality is that, Dortmund might be in a healthy financial state, but they are definitely not a club that can afford to pass on a 50 million euros so that they can keep a player for another year.
Inter bid 40m, Dortmund could have afforded only 20, yeah.Well apparently depending on which media outlet, they couldn't afford to bid for Hakimi. That was 30m euros.
Yes, I agree with that.Inter bid 40m, Dortmund could have afforded only 20, yeah.
By healthy financial state, I meant that they don’t have to sell to cover debt or something like teams like Roma, for example, but they’re transfer budget will obviously be modest given the circumstances.
I think the fact that so much is reported on Deals ( mostly False information) over and over by the press makes deals seem alot longer than maybe they actually are. According to reports we have been Putting together a deal for Sancho for a year now when I in actual fact we may have just started negotiating or we may not have started any negotiations at all, we may want to see how all teams finish & what players are available , or how much we have to spend depending on if we are playing Europa league again next year or we are playing Champions League , there are so many moving parts . It doesn't help everytime you are on social media or pick up a paper United are the clickbait .I'm getting sick to death of waiting for us to complete transfer deals. Every year, these go on for ages beyond what they should, as if Ed and Matt Judge have got to write a trilogy on it first before they can sign anyone.
OR - and that's far more likely - the whole thing is complete and utter BS. I mean, come on now. As if they valued Sancho at 50m ... it's crazy how many fans will believe the shite that comes out of media outlets desperate for some clicks.I wonder where that source came from, that's a pretty bold statement insisting no more than £50 million, I know Woodward issued a statement a few weeks back about transfer funds and COVID but that's an insult to Sancho and Dortmund and maybe ruled us out of the race for him.
I don't believe anything from sky sports or any ITK on twitter, the BBC or manutd.com is what I look out for. All i was saying is that thats a bold statement to come out with, the figure and that sky news will have egg on there faceOR - and that's far more likely - the whole thing is complete and utter BS.

nah, they have nothing. Haaland will stay for one more year I guess, and that's it basically. They hope that Bremen stay up because then they have an obligation to buy Toprak for 7m or something like that, and Sassuolo has chosen to pick up the option to buy Toljan for a couple of millions ... and then they'll hope someone will finally take Schürrle off their hands, but that's doubtful. As for the squad itself, I doubt they'll sell anybody else for anything substantial.Do Dortmund have any other players they could easily sell to offset not having to lose Sancho?
Have to say they would be pretty fecked if they lost both Sancho and Hakimi in one window. That's their entire right side gone, and during a window where they're likely strapped for cash!
