2-3 times. However Juve, City and wolves were interested and I trust their scouts
It has nothing to do with snobbishness and more so knowing a) there isn't an endless pile of cash b) you can't buy players for the sake of. 6 months of Fraser is unlikely to make a 20m difference.
Maddison makes no bones about being ambitious and would almost certainly love to be starter for Man Utd. The problem would be that Leicester are hoping to be in contention for top 4/6 and losing Maddison in the January window could lose them a spot in Europe and as well as upsetting their crowd base by selling top players. He is the top dog at Leicester & appears to be very popular with his team mates so he may want to see season out for his personal reputation.The money for Maddison would have to be stupid for him to leave in January and I don't see it happening. I do expect him to leave in the Summer & I think it will to Manchester United. I do worry that we are turning into your Southampton.
DLP (undecided who)
Those three signings would completely transform this team and give us a real push for Champions League football. I'm telling you.
I don't know about that but I checked it and it shown as 150k p/w (im using pounds) means already included as bonus. Would I take a 20% cut? Yes I would. Im actually thinking to take cut now to downgrade to tier 2 company due to poor treatment at current work.
What's your value then? Something closed to 10m is fair fees for a 31/32 yo player with only 1 year and half left in his contract. No club will be willing to even offer more than 15m, good luck trying to rip other club's money. They might just wait until 2021 summer window when he's free.
Would you take the 10m or hold him another season, pay another full year of his 150k/160k wages & letting him go for free? If Barcelona is happy holding 150k/160k for bench warmer then they can keep him another year.
United's wages structure is shambolic and that's why I went to the wages that similar to his current wages. If he wants much more then he can feck off to PSG, Juve or even China.
Don't be worrying about that and just go out and identify a great right winger for yourselves PLEASE!
Hwang already has 5 goals and 6 assists in 8 domestic matches this year and Minamino already has 3 goals and 2 assists in 7 matches...
I am very impressed with Hwang from a few games I saw him play. He seems has the quality to play in EPL. Minamino however to me looks too light weight and may not be able to handle the EPL game in a weekly basis.
Rumours that Thomas Muller wants to leave Bayern.
Take him in a heart beat.
He is a shadow of his goal scoring days in my opinion.
It’s going to be Eric Dier isn’t it
So are we. He'd fit right in.
Yeah, probably someone as uninspiring as that, a player that is available because no one else particularly wants him..
Olmo and Muller in Jan would work for me. If we sell Matic, someone like Sangare.
MEN list 6 players available in January, in positions United need to strengthen, because their contracts end next June. Eriksen is not available; he wants to go to Real. Some of the others are sure to be. Total Transfermarkt estimated fees for the other 5 are £101m. Actual fee paid with only 5 months to go should be at least half that. £50m for 5 players?
Although Ryan Fraser is listed as LW, 3 of his starts this season were as RW.
I've seen some debates which implied that Arsenal seem to be ostracizing Özil. He's on massive money but maybe loaning him for the rest of the season could be an option. We're crying out for a no.10 and he fits the bill, if it's only a loan and Solskjaer is still here.
Cantwell seems a great talent. Neat little player (21) who currently sits among the top of the tables for xG and xA. If he continues til winter then why not sign him?
Him and Fraser for the winter - maybe Zlatan as a stop-gap until we find a proper long-term attacker in the summer
There's a young Mexican midfielder we're supposedly competing for. Sebastian Cordova, age 22. Plays midfield, including attacking midfield.
Doesn't Özil have exactly the wrong attitude?
Sure, i have also heard some stories. Still, only a loan and Ozil would get playing time so he could position himself in the market. Much better for him then sitting on the bench. Both parties could actually profit from the move, IMO.
Except United only want leaders and warriors. To set a good example to the youth prospects like Greenwood, Gomes, Garner, Williams, Chong, Kovar, Laird, Levitt, Ramazani, Elanga, ... All of them.
The United Way is about having pride in the club, one's football, and playing for the team. Every player here needs to understand the importance of this. Don't need anyone who neglects to set a good example.
I'd bring in Mueller, Bale as panic options. I genuinely would because this is legit panic mode.
Thing is I bet neither want to come on, let alone on a short contract.
Bale on loan, Eriksson for 25m OR bruno Fernandez for 70m, Ndidi for 70m and Manduzkic for 15m. 4 players in Jan needed, would take our net for the season to 200m plus which we needed to donin the sunmer. Creative mid, defensive mid, right winger and a striker. It is unfortunate that Ben Yedder has gone.
Maybe sign on loan or free transfer. We need mostly experienced players even if they are old, so long as they are fit. Then Ole can plan ahead for players in summer. However with the negativity surrounding Ole esp from media and some fans - a heavy defeat against Liverpool can change things in new direction. But with our players back from injury and Liverpool being not that great at Old Trafford - We have a chance.
Dani Olmo is the biggest no brainer ever.
Eriksen is not going to join us, the rest we have a shot at if we want to pay the money.
The player that Man United need to connect midfield with strikers is definetely Bruno Fernandes,the guy is crazy.Here are best stats of him last season. Imagine having him and Martial in same team.
are supporters really calling - as the Sun claims - calling for the return of Memphis Depay? Why not go for Bebe and Taibi while we're about it...
Giorgian de Arrascaeta. 25, Born: 1-Jun-1994. Plays attacking midfield for Flamengo (Brazil; who have him on a fairly long contract, till end of 2023.) and Uruguayan national team. Also has an Italian passport. Currently averaging 1.4 goals or assists each match (10 goals, 8 assists in 14 matches over 1158 minutes). He would be a massive upgrade on Mata. Wouldn't cost the earth. £20 - 30m? The Brazilian season ends in December.
There are rumours about Ole going for Mathias Normann, 23 year old, a box-to-box, from Rostov for about £20m. Could be a bargain.
I'm not sure. Looks like he's still developing. United need players who can walk into the team and make a position their own.
Maybe because when they left they didn’t go on to become the talisman for their countries & outplay the league they went to.
Depay may or may not be the answer but the absence lute ridiculous way people go about ignoring his rather obvious improvements since leaving are beyond infantile.
We apparently have a reasonable buy back, I remember Jose’s ‘we control his future’ comment & aren’t in the habit of spending wildly - we could do worse than Depay, infact we currently are & some.
Our priorities should be:
1. Harry Kane
2. Harry Kane
3. Harry Kane
Bruno Guimarães. Contract till: 01-Feb-2023 Age: 21. Defensive Midfield. But a very attacking variant. I'd call him box-to-box. Plays for Paranaense in Brazil. Has an Spanish passport. Likes the ball (averages 67 passes per game, with 90% pass success). Chelsea rumoured to be after him for £36m quoted price. December is the end of the Brazilian football season. Replaces Matic/Fred and any other, so-called, defensive midfielder here (sell those two after buying this guy)
I would go for
Timo Werner - great goalscorer, fast and could also play the counter attacking style of play. Relatively Young and cheap buy out Clause.
Krystof Piatek - also proven goalscorer, Not to expensive, could be lured away from a miserable Milan team.
Erling Håland - If possible, sign him.
with one striker in
Then for CM:
James Maddison - Expensive but pure class.
Blaise Matuidi - Just to get some fecking cheap reinforcement to pur midfield.
Gareth Bale on loan - since we have no RW, and he could do the job.
Kurzawa only has 6 months on his contract, would solve our left back position either on the cheap or for free, though I'm sure many big clubs will be chasing his signature to join for free in the summer.
Same goes for meunier, I know we have Bissaka but meunier is a far better on the ball and would give us a good option for trying different systems that would rely on fullbacks for creativity out wide like 3 at the back or a diamond midfield.
There's a stack of South American players we can sign in January. Their season ends in December. Most Argentine and Brazilian players have contracts ending on the 31st of December. Many players are contracted with shorter contracts than European clubs give and contracts frequently run down. So a lot of contracts end this coming December. The very best players are obviously on longer contracts and must be bought. Average prices are considerably lower than the top European leagues. Even top prices don't go above £20m within South America itself. The majority of transfer fees paid are often closer to English Championship and League 1 fees. Lack of money doesn't stop us replacing the deadwood here. It's lack of will. I'd say at least half the players in the squads of SuperLiga and Brasileirão Serie A are better than our deadwood. It's hard to get work visas - but at least 35 players in the Brazilian and Argentine top leagues already have EU passports; so work visas will be no problem for any of them we get. However, some of them are on loan from European clubs. A small number of players match perfect for us scenarios: EU passport, registration owned by the club they currently play for. Young, far better than our deadwood.
Players in Brazil and Argentine, with EU passports, who are better than our deadwood. Name/Position/Age/Club. Green = those you'd be stupid not to sign; who would walk into our team in their favoured position.

We need players with the ability to create in the final third, not just counter attacking pace merchants. Good suggestion. Is he half british by chance?
With top 4 probably out of reach if Solskjear gets the sack in the next month or so, should we be putting more emphasis on signing players that will also be eligible for the Europa league as the only real hope we look to have this season to qualify for the champions league is if we get in a new manager of high quality and win the Europa league.
