    eh? Im not a Spurs fan, Spurs were a lot closer to signing Dybala than we ever were. For starters they were interested in him, I dont think we ever were.

    Ah shit sorry, must have a similar name to one. My sincerest apologies.

    We met his agent? He admitted so. We also spoke to Juve's sporting director. Safe to say we were interested.

    Im more a United fan than any other team in the EPL. Im Australian so I follow my home team mostly, Newcastle Jets. But I realise the brand of football in the EPL is just a step above what we have in Australia so I like to catch matches when I can(when it isnt 2am my time kick off).

    Yes we met his agent, but I mean that is where it started and ended. Apparently there were 'issues between the two clubs'. Dont know if that is a reference to the Pogba deal or something else.

    Maybe I should reword what I said to I dont know how serious our interest was.

    We should just paid him
    Martial
    James Dybala Rashford

    or

    Martial
    Rashford Mata Dybala
    Anything that keeps Lingard and Pereira out the team.

    Why did Spurs even want him? They already have Lucas, Son, Eriksen, Alli, Lamela and Lo Celso. They'd be better set if they spent the money upgrading on Winks, Sissoko and Dier.

    Kane
    Son Eriksen Lucas
    Ndombele New CM
    Rose Alderweireld Sanchez New RB
    Lloris
    They are a world class CM and RB away from challenging for the league. Dybala ain't what they need.

    The main issue with Dybala for both United and Spurs wasnt really the purchasing of his image rights, it was probably more to do with the court case that is still looming from his previous management company.

    Ah nice! You have one of my favourite championship players, in Wes Hoolahan. What a baller he was.

    Fair enough. Point taken.

    Yep. Until that is resolved, he won't be going anywhere I think.

    To strengthen the team? Hopefully he will contribute to a goal in a year.

    If he doesnt cement a place, PSG or Spurs is my guess.

    If he wanted to come to United we would have got him. He is the signing we should stay away from.

    No point signing someone on big wages who is looking at Real and Barca for a move?

    Because they are losing Eriksen is why they want him.
