Torn with this deal. He had to leave the club at some point (I know it’s only a loan), I would have definitely been up for this deal at the start of the summer but with our limited options up front, it leaves our front line paper thin. Hopefully there is a free transfer somewhere.
Hopefully he plays well for Inter and we can sell him on next summer.
Good for both. He can't cut it in the prem anymore and needs a slower league. Simple as. We dont know what sort of influence he is on the squad in training or whatever, but I cant imagine it being a good image earning that much sitting around playing like shit.
A shame how his transfer turned out tbh. In his prime he was brilliant and exactly what I wanted United to have, he was just so shockingly past that point unfortunately.
Can not miss something you did not have. He did not offer/we could not get out of him us anything more than unbalanced wage structure. Might as well get rid. One can only hope that this would mean that we are now in position to get some decent midfielders in on summer (do not expect us sign anyone during winter window).
Our shortsightedness knows no bounds. Bought on a whim when Martial was playing his best football; loaned out on a whim paying a portion of his wage whilst looking paper-thin in attack and with the transfer window closed.
Provided he stays fit, I think he will be excellent for them. His time previously in Italy at Udinese was the best he's looked throughout his career, imo. He may have slowed a bit since, but Serie A is a league where pensioners can still flourish
