You left in a disgraceful and disrespectful manner. If you come back to United with Inter, please expect to be boo-ed.

We got a good fee for him and hopefully will re-invest either this January/ next
Summer.

Very good striker but he acted like a complete idiot to force a move and didn’t suit our style of play.

He’s probably filming that outside of McDonald’s.

Back in July Solskjaer said if we sell well replace...

I don’t see that happening

Another botched big money transfer in the post-Fergie era. Our recruitment has been unbelievably poor.

Good luck for him there. Think he'll do there far better than at Juve. Will be the main central striker (unlike with Ronaldo) and under the manager whose style will get the best out of him.

Not mad at him at all despite hating him as a footballer. He got what he wanted, and this move is better for everyone I guess.

I really supported him during his time at United but what a massive bellend he was to team spirit at the end.

Score a bunch of goals get the add ons. Conte gets sacked after a while, agitate for another transfer and we get our 10% sell on.

Madness to sell him without getting a replacement but I guess that's the way we're run as a club.

It seems only five minutes ago that he was making his United debut.

Great news. Shows Ole has a clear ideology and will not suffer players who don't fit in with it, irrespective of their reputation.

This has parallels with Benteke being shipped out from Liverpool quickly under Klopp... I think they also unbelievably got back the money they paid for him.

They also didn't sign a direct replacement and were criticised for it... A few years later look where they are.

You want another donkey? Andy Carroll is available.
Haha

Not quite... a mobile forward to replace him would be nice. At the moment our strikers are Rashford, Martial and Greenwood. I like all 3 players a lot but at least one of them will end up playing wide and they aren’t exactly proven world class yet.

Never seen a United player who was so poor at the basics you take for granted at the top level.

Strange one Rom bangs goals in but you'r never confident in his technique.

He was a big game bottler who regularly went on long goal droughts.

His level of fitness was disgracefully bad, I still remember last season against Chelsea at Old Trafford when he could barely move for the last hour he was on the pitch he was so knackered.

He's also shown himself to be unprofessional with a bad attitude that has left the club after pissing off the manager the squad and the fans.

He will not be missed.
