Its probably going to bit late in the window knowing how our club operates, at the moment we just seem to be making lowball offers that are never going to be accepted.
It'll probably be "United will sign players after the Euros. Player X doesn't want to get distracted while on international duty."
And then Euros goes by, and "United are monitoring and contemplating a bid."
Few weeks goes by, and "United lowball bids are rejected / United have to sell before buying, hampered by FFP."
Deadline day, "United managed to scrape 2 signings."
Both signings flops in debut season due to "lack of pre-season".
More deadwood to sell next season.

I jest of course. :wenger:

You don't know how our club operates, because the people making the decisions are entirely different people to previous windows. Why not give it a month and see what happens, rather than traipsing out the same old tired, lazy soundbites?
Indeed. Nobody has a clue what's going on, which in comparison to previous years, is probably a good thing.

10th of August when we finally cave as we always do and give Everton the 70m they're asking for for Branthwaite.

June 25th. I've got the same INEOS sources that the guy in the Ten Hag thread had so you know I'm totally legitimate.

Early(ish) in the window seems quite positive. I don't know much bout zirkzee, he doesn't seem prolific, but does add another attacking option and the noise suggests de ligt is done. Yoro and branthwaite strong rumours too.

Still mf concerns, rumours of ins and outs, VdB moving means nothing but do need 1+ first teamer in.
