    Yeah, I wouldn't do it on all days BUT it looks like Ole doesn't want him and if it means Ed allows us to spend more on CHs and MFers (where we need it), I'm all for it on this occasion.

    I think you're missing the point of my post. Poster responded to me that we are basically better off for not haggling over 5 million - 10 million on a player the manager wants or a player the manager doesnt want in the squad as if "redcafe posters" were in charge we would overspend by 100 million over the course of a few transfer windows. All i was doing was showing the opposite end of that , something that actually happenened last year, that sometimes that leaves hagling leaves us without the player the manager wanted because we wouldnt budge on 5 10 million and also we get stuck with players like darmian for another year and end up getting even smaller bids becuase we were holding out for 3 million euro more.

    They want to pay a small amount now for the loan, with the rest coming in two years.

    They've gone all out on the David Bowie references. He liked a tweet when someone suggested that as a song for him, from the tune of Starman, don't know if they actually sing it at Carrow Road.

    Then they've mocked him up in the Ziggy Stardust face paint and A Lad in Form is borrowing from Bowie's album titled Alladin Sane.

    Not that I got all that at first either, had to google it!

    It shouldn't be this way but United need to follow Spurs example in being ruthless in getting rid of players before they become a liability, if trippier was at united the club would be holding onto him until he's 34 like we have with the likes of young, Valencia etc.. wish we would see sense to shift the likes of lingard and Matic on as their value is only going to drop further and further each passing transfer window.

    Fair enough but Ed would be risking him going somewhere else if that is the case. If they do indeed need cash, their probably just using us to drum up interest since everyone knows we need players. They probably read the Caf and see how many fans what him. Curious if Arsenal, City, Chelsea(not that it matters) and Liverpool fans rate him as high as most on the Caf do. Is he wanted anywhere else? I do not know.

    Is there any way to filter the tweets I see to ones that directly involved United? Sick of coming on and seeing 30 new tweets and thinking oooo shits going down.... And seeing that said shit is going down, but at conference clubs.

    To be fair, you should know by now that nothing unexpected involving United is going down.

    It will be in the Maguire, Fernandes or Longstaff threads.

    As well as continually spouting the absolutely idiotic, "it's not my money" twaddle, inexplicably refusing to realise that if you pay too much, or get too little in, then you WILL have less for the next signing.

    But then they'll argue that there's this unlimited pot, despite the evidence of the last 20 years.

    Hide Frigid C@nt or whatever his name is. That reduces them by about 90% immedo.

    There isn't much information about him as yet. All I know is that he's rated as a big talent in his age group and is a creative midfielder. Below is a vid of him playing in a futsal tournament for Lyon where he demonstrates his artistic abilities on the ball.

    Agreed, he has all the qualities that we are crying out for in my opinion.

    I think Maguire is a good signing too and will improve us but I think Romagnoli would be a fantastic addition. I do like the look of Longstaff I must admit and I hope we get him too, but while they would provide a good base for the season there will still be massive work to do next summer too to get the team back where it needs to be.

    Someone else's bench. He's shite and symptomatic of our descent into mediocrity.

    If it's 75m pounds and not euros for sure, take it. But the fee is too small in Euros.

    Yeah but inflation has also made the transfer market rate two years older and fatter

    Formal bids are pretty irrelevant though, a whole transfer saga can only have one bid submitted at the very end

    My slightly exaggerated point is that whatever he is paid is far too much given his lack of ability

    Are we supposed to believe that there is a tug of war between United and City? I'm not sure I believe City are really in for him. But it's a great narrative for Leicester.

    City were in for him, but i think they wont make a higher bid. There were several reports stating they arent in the race anymore. So technically it is true what he said, that bid from City was weeks ago though.

    Multiple sources confirmed that there were two bids, one form united and one from city. Why would Rogers lie about that ? If lcfc wanted to play with that to increase the price of the player, they would use the media. Rogers wouldn't risk lying about the offer.

    Thats true but is there anybody daft enough to massively over pay for him like we did? He has got a few goals for us but I genuinely think its one of the worst signings we have ever made, paying that much money for somebody with such an utterly awful touch, even in todays market he really isnt worth anywhere near what we paid for him

    Pogba was immense today and provided a reminder of what he can do that no other player in the side can. He has to stay at this point.

    They will come again next year and i hope we will ask for same amount ( if its 150-180mil ), next year think they will spit the money and get him. Pogba, fat cnut and Real overplayed a bit their cards this summer.
