Agree with your main point but not on the specifics.

Van Gaal identified Firmino before Liverpool signed him.


As for the other two: Mane was rated at Southampton and was clearly on the up and ready for the next level. In Salah's final season with Roma they finished 2nd with a record points tally. Joel Matip was always a decent player. Van Dijk and Allisson were others who was ready to make the step up.

Liverpool make intelligent buys for sensible prices. When Pogba leaves this summer his 100m needs to be invested in Jack Grealish - a player ready for the next step and another midfielder.
Would love to put forward Saul as the other midfielder but we are easily talking around £150m ish for him & Grealish. So if we only get £100m for Pogba then need to raise another £50m from somewhere.

Dybala’s agent said clubs didn’t agree and Dybala would not have been valued same as Sancho so that’s that sorted.

Sancho was a target last summer according to reports you believe and it didn’t happen, the speculation now and for a whiles has been that Chelsea are front runners so all that gossip your buying into is now contradicting you.
Dybala not being valued the same as Sancho isn't the point. The point was that we as a club were more than prepared to have a net spend of a £150m.

Sancho was a top target last summer and Dortmund's DoF backed those reports by stating that United had been in contact with the German club regarding the player.

Well we didn’t agree a deal for Dybala so that’s not true. Press speculation doesn’t make something true, sure you would claim that about the Chelsea/Sancho rumours.

Zorc refers to a Consultant and not even knowing what the Consultant said to Utd, hardly serious talks.

How do you know we didn't agree a deal with Juventus? Were Fabrizio Romano and Di Marzio fabricating the story? Both journos are among the most reliable for Juventus news. Alfredo Pedulla who is the mouth piece for the current Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri reported the same.

Regarding Sancho, Zorc said the following down below.

Speaking earlier this week, Zorc confirmed that United did make an approach for Sancho, but that Dortmund were unwilling to let him leave this summer under any circumstances.

“Both his discussions with the club and mine with the consultants,” he said.

“A meeting did take place. Manchester United invited the consultant. But according to what I know, the consultant told the club that no matter how much money they offer, we won’t let him go this summer.
