Aaaaah? But he could be thick as well.
In other countries than England, this transfer is seen as ridiculous, so everyone is like United are morrons, they have lost their mind etc.
Deal done always knew it was gonna happen
BBC, Sky, Press Association and numerous other sources.
Apparently he's the third most expensive defender in history behind David Luiz and Thiago Silva.
Does anybody remember how much Thuram went to Juve for? Wikipedia says 41m Euro, but that was in '01 so I'm not sure how much it works out to be.
The club hasn't confirmed it so far.
Oh. Not really for us to bother. We need a good left back for a long term. And tbf it is a high fee.
Yes, however, BBC have. BBC do not print things unless they have checked. Luke Shaw also confirmed it on his Twitter, then removed it.
Considering the price PSG paid for sideshow bob, this is a bargain.
hopefully it will be confirmed soon and I can get back to work.
Back in 2001 the british currency was worth alot more than it is now iirc.
If you consider the price PSG paid for sideshow bob, everything will be a bargain.
United are probably busy photoshopping a picture to put on twitter...
divide that figure into Fourteen yearly instalments if he's as good as the fee says, and it will prove to be a bargain.
Yeah, it was probably around £20m at that point.
He looked good for Southampton last season. If he can maintain and keep improving upon that level of performance, he would be worth the price we paid.
I'm not even Chelsea.
Yeah, that's true.
Who the feck cares what the fee is? I hate the obsession with them these days. Look at the player we're getting, not the fee.
Not entirely sure, but it was around the £25-27m mark. But still, insane money back then.
Is more obscene the new deal for a run of the mill player like Valencia
Dear God, he must be off to Chelsea so?
Chelsea are thunder cnuts if they tried to hijack the deal. Clearly their deal for Luis Felipe doesnt seem to progressing well.
Well yes, I see no issue here.
What agreat couple of days. Really gets me through the shit work day.
Ah Jesus Christ, it's fairly obvious it is beyond the point of hijacking now, he is clearly a Manchester United player.
If Luiz is worth 50m then 30m for Shaw is an absolute bargain
If Luiz was from Croatia he'd cost £15m. And if Shaw was Irish he'd cost £5m.
Beautiful 2 days! Keep those signings coming!
What a nice week to be a United fan! 2 deals rumoured and then......... COMPLETED!! Keep up the good work boys!!
Have we Chelsea yet?
What if Luiz was irish and Shaw was Croatian?
What part of Luke Shaw doesn't Chelsea, didn't you understand?
Yes, of course now he is. But there are suggestions that they did try and hijack it. Obviously not today but leading up to today.
He chelsea'd too much so now he thinks everyone else should Chelsea.
Same was true of Rio, Rooney. Not so ridiculous now.
