This thread is dedicated to Tweets that refer to teams other than Manchester United that are outside of the British Isles and in UEFA (e.g. Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Greece, Ukraine, Israel, etc.). For other Tweets, please use one of the other Transfer Tweets threads.

Anyone not following the rules will be warned and eventually permabanned from the thread.

DON'T

  • Post a Tweet referring to Manchester United or teams in the British Isles.
  • Post a Tweet from a banned source (see below for the banned sources) unless they have held an interview with a player
    • Also, don't post a Tweet from an aggregator that refers to a Tier 4 source or below. The same exception as above applies.
  • Post a non-English Tweet without a basic translation (either from another Tweet or in the post itself). Suggested translators: Google Translate, DeepL, Reverso
  • Post anything from aggregator accounts (e.g. Sport Witness, Reshad Rahman, iMiaSanMia) without the original source (as a second Tweet, link, embed, image, or a reference to a TV/radio show).
    • Exception: an aggregator's Tweet is retweeted by the source. The Tweet must then be accompanied by a message/screenshot indicating this. Otherwise, the Tweet will not be allowed.
  • Post anything from aggregator accounts who don't refer to the original source and tend to make stuff up for retweets/follows. Example, Proof
  • Post the following types of Tweets (post them in quotes/spoilers to avoid putting them into the feed)
    • Joke/Piss-take Tweets
    • Tweets that don't refer to a transfer story (e.g. a journalist posting their own opinions; example)
    • Tweets that refer to agent changes (without referring to the player's future), team ownership updates, or financial analyses (a transfer budget is enough info)
  • Post more than 3 Tweets per post. We highly encourage only 2 at most.
  • Post a comment referring to a rumour/report without a Tweet (e.g. "I've read multiple reports about United being linked to Haaland. If true...")
  • Post the full article verbatim from a Tweet. Provide a bullet-point summary instead.
  • Post anything that was tweeted more than three days ago. If it wasn't posted before then, nobody cares.
  • Post Tweets that are already in the thread. Check the feed before posting the Tweet.
  • Use the thread to moan (about the Tweets, United's targets, other teams' targets compared to United's, moaners, etc.).
  • Post off-topic comments or hold extended discussions over a single Tweet (that span multiple pages). Create a new thread instead.
Rules of thumb:
  • Article with no author = typically unreliable (exception: journalist websites like gianlucadimarzio.com)
  • If a Tweet gets deleted, then either replace it with another Tweet or delete the post.
  • Treat Fabrizio Romano as both a source and aggregator.
    • If Fabrizio Romano refers to another source, then provide a Tweet, link, etc. from that source.
Aggregators
Aggregators are Twitter accounts that collect news and reports from various media outlets and publish their summaries/key tidbits. They always refer to the source but often do not refer to the original article/news passage. They very rarely, if ever, post their own information; if they do, they prepend their Tweets with an "Exclusive:" or similar. Also, unfortunately, several aggregators (including some very popular ones) tend to alter the original info to either fit the content into a Tweet or sensationalise the original report. This is why it's imperative for everyone to provide the original source when posting anything from an aggregator. Aggregators also do not care about the quality of the source; they often publish Tweets containing info from unreliable sources.

Use the aggregators to either summarise the original source's info or translate the info from a non-English source. Basically, treat an aggregator like Wikipedia: use it to become more aware of what's going on in the football world, but recognise that it is not a reliable source of information.

What Kind of Tweets should I Post?
  • Player transfers, free signings, contract extensions, or releases
  • Managerial transfers, signings, contract extensions, or releases
  • Football executive appointments/releases (DoF, CEO/Chairperson, Head of Negotiations, etc.)
  • Transfer plans + any impacts to them
  • Transfer budgets + any impacts to them
The teams that you can post Tweets for: all UEFA leagues outside of the British Isles (top-flight leagues recommended)

The Caf now has its own pair of tier lists (one for United sources, and one for everything else). You can find them and more here. For your convenience, here is the list of banned sources (as of 3 August 2022):

Atleti, very interested in Carlos Soler.
  • First contacts between clubs, as advanced by Héctor Gómez.
  • It is a market opportunity because of his contractual situation.
  • The possible acceleration also depends on Saúl's situation.

Willy Gnonto market man: Sassuolo, Bologna, Sampdoria and Torino on his case
Gnonto is an 18-year-old Italian striker who currently plays for FC Zurich. His contract expires next season. He's already being sought after by many teams after his recent international debut. The teams interested in him (besides the ones mentioned in the Tweet):
  • Bundesliga clubs
  • Belgian clubs
  • PSV
  • Ajax
    • Ajax are advancing in on him and will meet up with his representatives next week.

EDIT: Source
  • Napoli's also interested in Deulofeu.
    • Bernardeschi's transfer won't affect Deulofeu's Napoli prospects.
  • Deulofeu prefers the move.
  • Gap in the fee between Napoli & Udinese
    • Napoli's offer: €12m
    • Udinese's demand: €20m

Juventus want to bring back Berardi. This is in response to Juventus losing out on Di Maria.

The other options according to Di Marzio: Filip Kostic and Mykhaylo Mudryk
Juventus back to Domenico Berardi : the first contacts with Sassuolo started

AC Milan, Renato Sanches one step away from the Rossoneri. Botman track moves away
  • Renato Sanches will sign a contract with a salary of €3m net/year.
    • Price: €18m - €20m
  • AC Milan are falling behind on Botman.
    • Lille demand €40m - €45m, which Milan don't want to pay.
    • Strong interest from Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle

Not sure why we don't hire a scout to concentrate on Juves youth sides and get friendly with their best players families etc, then when they're 16/17 I they're still good enough, get them to United.

Can't spell Mkhitaryan

Milan Skriniar is a player to strengthen the defence of PSG as revealed by Le Parisien. Paris wants to recruit in this sector this summer
