Beginning to think this might happen.

Judge reports to Murtough instead of Woodward now, as reported by Laurie Whitwell and David Ornstein. Judge is the negotiator but Murtough is the first point of contact for other clubs.
Maybe read this article...

"Murtough (...) does not oversee the club's recruitment, with the director of football negotiations Matt Judge still the point of contact to discuss a prospective target's terms.

The recruitment process is still largely overseen by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the technical chief scout Mick Court, as well as his team in the recruitment department."

Compared to our window when we last finished 2nd :lol: And we’re not done yet.
It's fair to keep in mind that in 2018 our actual spendings were relatively high due to owned cash from previous transfers. While I can understand fans being naively upset, I don't understand how a manager who was most likely aware could be as petulant.

Only first place is good enough now.
Sancho and varane are massive statements of intent.
Roll on the start of the season.

I've read that article from Luckhurst and it contradicts what Ornstein and Whitwell reported.

Looks like we got Varane for what we saved on holding back from signing Sancho last year. Cheers Dortmund.

I've asked this before but never got an answer: Would Varane likely be LCB or RCB in a partnership with Maguire?

I would really like to see Maguire play as RCB, I think it would elevate his play at bringing the ball out of defence to another level...

Only United could've been so shite for years yet still be a dream for top quality players. That said money talks...money talks.

£34 million going up to 50 with add-ons. What a deal. Well done to whoever negotiated this.

Maguire will be LCB. He’s excellent at it and has a good relationship with Shaw.

I’m looking forward to seeing AWB with Varane on his left and Sancho ahead of him.
