Not really.Honestly a lot of the tweets and news stories regarding Sancho are about selling papers for the next few days on a deal that is mostly agreed. There is too much smoke for there not to be a fire. A quick resolution ends the story too quickly and leaves the papers and sky sports news nothing to talk about.
Where were you mentioned £60k? All I've seen so far was "up to £60k".£65k was the number I saw mentioned. £40k would be ok, a bit high but not crazy. Why was up to £65k mentioned though? If it's an increasing contract where he will eventually be on £65k it doesn't really matter if it's only £40k this 1st year since we'd still be commiting to paying it.
Dreadful is a tad harsh. I do pretty much agree though. Ironic also from SOuthampton as to me he is another Schneiderlin, very average midfield work horse that does simpel things adequately. They are looking to sell a far better player in Ndombele as the exchange, poor work.Then I will throw in my counter, think he’s a dreadful player that will not give them anything. They already have Dier as a fake tough guy in the middle compensating for his lack of ability, here’s another one. Typical Mourinho, going for someone with bite rather than technical skills.
Is a bit of a weird statement to me that twet. We need to sell centre backs regardless of purchasing a new one. We have two on loan surplass to requirements for starters. We need to buy one as three of the others cant stay fit for 5mins between them and one of the two that can is bang averageYeah always expected we would need to sell at least two CB's before buying a new one
Have to say he looked a decent if mentally unstable defender at PSG, has a mistake in him pretty much every game for Tottenham though, bet ther eglad to see the back of himIn other news, Aurier has given his approval on his transfer to AC Milan:
The article also mentions that Milan will have to sell one of Calabria and Conti to make way for Aurier.
Im interested to know what the wage demands are if there is any truth in this story. TBH I think the fee is high but certainly not ludicrous when you consider other deals over recent years and what SAncho offers usNot saying I necessarily believe the story, just saying I'm on board with United's stance in general on walking away from any deal if they are getting shafted. We overpaid for Maguire and the United premium BS has to stop. Somebody else can get rinsed or BVB can be left with an unsettled player.
That being said, I'm praying we get the deal over the line.
In this window at least, really cant fathom why we would be looking at signing a striker over a defensive midfielder? We have Martial and Ighalo until January at which point Greenwood can become the second striker and Rashford also available as a third striker for one spot.
He is obsessed with Scotty being a replacement despite everybody seeing from a mile off that he's not up to it to replace Matic.In this window at least, really cant fathom why we would be looking at signing a striker over a defensive midfielder?

DM we have Matic and thats it
Chiesa could be more of a Grealish alternative. He’s played centrally and up front as well this season. We could potentially get Chiesa and Van de Beek for the same price as Grealish.
I’m not as down on the idea of Scott eventually playing that role. I think he has struggled with it this season but that’s on the back of playing a very different role most of the season. I think with work and experience he has all the attributes to do it.He is obsessed with Scotty being a replacement despite everybody seeing from a mile off that he's not up to it to replace Matic.
I think we should give him Mctominay next season to see if he can do it. Literally all of Ole Matic and Carrick (2 best DMs in different PL eras) have said they see Mctominay as a DM. I personally don't see it but Im sure I don't know better than them so I'll give them next season to see if they are all wrongHe is obsessed with Scotty being a replacement despite everybody seeing from a mile off that he's not up to it to replace Matic.
How many times is he going to say that? Must be in double figures now.
