Napoli wanted more for Koulibaly (90 million Euros if I remember correctly). Because Napoli weren't willing to compromise on their stance, City decided to pursue other options.Wasn't Koulibaly being mooted for a similar kind of figure not long ago,looks like they really do have a bad relationship with Napoli after the Jorginho stuff.
Would be strange. Why not do it for every transfer tweet?Personally feel like he’s just covering his arse in case Telles doesn’t sign and we sign someone else; then he’ll come out and say he knew it all along.
I wouldn't be averse to that either.I think he's predicting we'll go for this mystery option, that's why he's not revealing it yet. I still think it's Tagliafico, it makes a lot of sense, we have a good relationship with Ajax, he's not got long left on his contract and we've already been in contact with them this summer due to Donny.
No before Newcastle bid we offered 10m but Norwich valued him at least double with add-ons included hoping it would trigger a bidding war because we were the first and only team to bid at that time. We sacked it off and bought Tsimikas instead for a lower fee. Norwich reluctantly accepted Newcastle's improved offer because no one else came in for him a month later.I don’t agree that Liverpool get quoted the same as United. You were quoted 15m for their leftback and didn’t go for it. He went for the same price to Newcastle
I'd rather this happen and a bunch of our so called fans go and follow some other clubs to be honest. Such a large part of our fan base is embarrassing, far worse than anything Jesse has ever done. This is a guy who has lived, breathed and experienced the club more than anyone on this site, who the feck are you to feel you have the right to be like this?I agree
Knowing the board, he will get a big fat contract, end up retiring at 34 years at United, get into a coaching role leading to him becoming the united manager, end up being our director of football, and then finally an ambassador over 60. Which is still very very young.
That will be our Jesse, young and united forever.
Actually didn't tweet anything about VDB until Ajax coach confirmed there was a bid. So do your research. He had no idea.So much wrong with this post, it's hilarious.
He updated our abysmal Sancho chase way before any UK media outlet did.
Regullion was simple we would pay for him but wouldn't accept the buy back clause. So spurs swooped in and accepted the clause we wouldn't, nowhere did he say we had signed him (I checked his tweets) simply the fact we had a clause issue that still remained as a stumbling block.
Bang on with Van de Beek at every step.
Third LB? Have you considered that he genuinely doesn't know who it is... Maybe we just have a backup for Telles, make sense to have several potential targets for one position.
Intrigued at your 'badly wrong' claim, I'm far from his fanboy but you seem to hold a personal dislike for him.
I do expect a backlash!You can't upset the Romano fanboys with facts like this mate. They will have you killed.
Exactly why is he refusing to name this mysterious third target? It makes no sense at all. He's absolutely full of crap. He said we were signing Reguilon on the day he joined Spurs and apparently it never even got close to us as Utd were never entertaining the release clause from the very off.
He's got United news wrong all summer. Badly wrong in fact.
How would you know this?Actually didn't tweet anything about VDB until Ajax coach confirmed there was a bid. So do your research. He had no idea.
Said we'd agreed terms with Sancho and his agent in June. We didn't.
Didn't know Sancho had extended his deal last summer.
Hahahahahahah. How silly do you look now.
I have been for years, a long time ago. But err thanks for that?I'd rather this happen and a bunch of our so called fans go and follow some other clubs to be honest. Such a large part of our fan base is embarrassing, far worse than anything Jesse has ever done. This is a guy who has lived, breathed and experienced the club more than anyone on this site, who the feck are you to feel you have the right to be like this?
Just leave it as saying we need better in the squad, that's enough. All the pathetic insults and vile abuse thrown is noise, pointless noise. Would I be OK with him being sold? Yes, no real issue there but I'll never openly and consistently abuse the guy, I've more respect for him than pretty much any Internet fan of ours I see. This club has been his life, why can't you lot just call for him to go respectfully?
Because you're fecking children, that's why. Parrot each other, too lazy and/or stupid for reasonable, original thoughts.
How do I know what? He didn't know about VDB before Ajax coach spoke out. Nobody had a clue about that deal in the press it seemed. Definitely caught everyone out that one.How would you know this?
