"Aston Villa are already preparing to begin talks to buy loan stars Tammy Abraham, Tyrone Mings and Axel Tuanzebe if they are promoted."

I won't believe it until I see it, but if we pay Rashford 300k/week, he better deliver instantly with 20+ goals. I have a very hard time seeing that happen.
The Glaziers are not really that interested in his goals , its what he can deliver in shirt sales and other merchandise that will govern how much they are prepared to pay . This club is about profit and borrowing collateral for the Glaziers , not about football

Because being a tabloid sports transfer journalist consists of essentially naming 177338485959 transfers and when you get one right, shouting “REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST!!!111!1!1!1!” like a god.
