Money isn't really an issue for United though. Your profit is so vast, you can spend loads and easily comply with FFP - unlike City for example and certainly most, if not all other clubs. I agree with you, that ideally you'd buy younger players who can play for many years. But if any team can cope with high wages, high fee & an older player it's Manchester United. Not sure money is factored much into the club decisions - hence signing Sanchez for the vast wages, given his age - not mentioning the fee. Manchester United are perfect for Mourinho in that regard, as they can finance his short term buys. But is Mourinho right for Manchester United? That's a difference debate I guess. I can clearly see how you think.
