    How seriously were we in trying to sign him up?
    If we had had any chance I still don't believe we've missed him

    The chanting of Raiola, from Juve fans, is just going to feed this mans ego even more. Not a good sign.

    Not sure if serious. Bonucci has been poor since he left to join Milan. Anyone could bench him at this stage.

    Poor by his standars, which were one of the best defenders in the world. He is still better than Maguire.

    If I remember correctly, Napoli finished 3rd in their CL group and then went out to Arsenal in EL.

    Thought he would aim higher than playing in Seria A. If he does well, then a club from Spain/England might activate the release clause in 3 years.

    Remarkable any on here deluded themselves into thinking we were ever in with a whimper. The Utd rebuild won't feature the obvious elite players of now and the near future.

    I hate Raiola and think we should stop trading Raiola players, we have enough problems with him!

    Feel like this thread title will still be accurate in a season or two.

    He isn’t a Raiola player, Raiola was just involved with brokering this deal. De Ligt has a different agent

    Never said we were. I can fully understand him going to Barca but not to a semi retirement league when you are a coveted 19 year old

    A bit gutted that we missed out but it is what it is. He would have been perfect for us. Young, quality, leader. Such a shame.

    Yeah missing out on him proper stings,if only the club wasn't in such a mess then maybe we would have had a chance.

    Didn't help the guy brokering the deal got Utd's back up with the Pogba comments. He probably made them just to spite us.

    75mil is a lot of money for a poor man’s Maguire.

    Poor by anyone standards to the point where only Juventus were interested in signing him back... your opinion, very few share it.

    Napoli have played six games against English teams in Europe in the last two seasons and lost five of them. They would have no chance of getting top 4 in the PL and the rest of Italy would struggle to make the top half.

    So roughly £280,000 per week as a basic plus another potential 50% (£420,000 per week) increase with add ons (if they are achieved). Probably heavily based towards winning the UCL, I’d guess.

    That’s a lot of money for a 19 year old. Imagine his next contract :eek: (assuming he continues to develop as one of the best CB’s).

    New tax system might also have an effect in landing these talents in Italy along with Raiola .

    And now you all know why players love Raiola. He may be a bastard, but he makes them all filthy rich.
