We backed him with a £45m midfielder, it’s very uncertain times atm with COVID I don’t think it’s totally unwise to hold back on spending. We probably won’t even get fans in the stadium again this season..£30m is a lot when you're not trying to back the manager and doing things on the cheap.
(assuming Sancho isn't coming)
Yeah, Madrid dictating a transfer to us. They can feck off. Glad we nixed it. Same for Bale. We're not making mistakes like ADM and Sanchez as long as Ole is the manager. If nothing else, he's slapped some sense into Woodward on what type of player we need to be going for. Yes, I'm confident Sancho will be done by the 5th.So he wasn't 100% coming to us at all then
Getting Sancho done by October 5 is key to this whole discussion. A backup LB was never our top priority, but RW clearly is. And we have the opportunity to bring in an extraordinary talent who wants to play for United, but we’re haggling like a rug merchant over an insignificant difference in valuations relative to projected revenue growth over the next decade.Yeah, Madrid dictating a transfer to us.

And ?Mendy is only 25 years old. It’s highly unlikely he’ll be finished as a footballer at 27.
They spent around the same on Sessengon who's proven even less just a year ago.Spurs signed a left back for a lot of money who they’ll have to give back again if any good
Ajax even publicly announced the fee.I think you’ve been sufficiently answered by other posters. But all reports put the fee including add ons at £40 million total - you’re thinking of the fee in euros.
The only reason Williams was converted in to a left back is because he wasn't as good as Laird at right-back. Describing him as 'extremely talented' is beyond hilarious, good solid player with some attractive qualities but he's shown nothing to suggest he's extremely talented. I'd say the only players who fit that description in our team are Pogba, Greenwood & Martial. But it's clear we have a very different set of standards.What a load of rubbish. Williams just turned 20 and had his first season of senior football. Where was Reguilon at the same age?
“Everything indicates” wtf is that? Maybe the new long term contract the kid signed just a month ago? Williams is an extremely talented young full back, also versatile and will have a good future here. Reguilon is 4 year senior and more proven, but nothing indicates that Williams can’t get to that level. I’ve watched Brandon through the youth teams and the kid has always been a standout performer, writing him off after a bad patch is laughable.
And then you also throw Laird into the conversation while the kid barely played senior football and can’t catch a break from injuries. Talk about a load of rubbish with a post like that.
I don't get the hate either, I would have liked the buy back fee to be higher but other than that, with Mendy there ready to step up there is no guarantee Madrid will come back for him when Mbappe would be moving soon.I feel like I'm the only one who thinks Spurs have done okay here. He is clearly very talented, obviously there is a chance that he fails as there is with any signing. At worst they are being payed a few million to have a good player on loan for 2 seasons.
Although with that said he probably won't reach his potential under Mourinho.
What are you trying to say? First you suggest that RM are stockpiling players and then you suggest us to loan Reguilon out. Loaning is more like stockpiling then selling with buy back clause.I was joking. And if your happy that your club are effectively thumbing their noses to UEFA/FIFA in their attempts to stop clubs stock-pilling players because that's exactly what they are doing by abusing the transfer system like that once they find a gullible enough club(Hi Tottenham!) to help them out, good for you. It's not like Real Madrid are strangers to Unethical practices is it?.
If you haven't got a place in your squad for the minute loan him out for two years if need be like clubs have been doing for years.
Yes, only seen the one game, but that was all needed to convince me, reminded me of prime Evra going forward with the ball, which is something at such a young age. Personally rather sign nobody at left back and keep Williams as the back up if we can move for Mendes next summer to prioritise Sancho or alternative plus a centre backNuno Mendes is the one i'd like us to get.
