Is he normal?
It might very well be true. We paying Ashley Young around 120k aren't we? Also, we weren't the only club in for him with Chelsea also sniffing around so I don't think it's that unbelievable that we've 'out offered' Chelsea to make sure we get our man.

Ben Fairthorne doesn't exist. Well, maybe he does but he certainly isn't a journo who has worked with x, y and z company and has a zillion sources. He's indykaila with a dicky bow.

When I, and a lot of others, view the twitter thread, we want to see actual news, not utter crap spouted by ITK69 about something plucked from their arsecrack and retweeted and favourited into oblivion just because it links Suarez with a move to Caledonian Thistle or some other nonsense.
Yeah, I don't get why people bother. It's easier when someone identifies 'with their own name' and says where he worked because all you have to do is Google it. The fact he gives out 'his name' gives him credibility, but his Twitter personna isn't real and he's no different to others. No point bothering with him.

Highly doubt he'll come in and be our 3rd/4th highest earner. Hardly a credible source either.

27 million and 160k per week really shows why most clubs should just go foreign, this british tax is getting more ridiculous by the year, we better be signing the next maldini if this is the case

There needs to be a twitter equivalent of Karl Pilkington's "Bullshit Man", were he just responds to tweets with "bullshit" and then moves on to the next one.

If we actually do think he is worth it, Woodward needs a good wobble to wake him up from his fairyland!

Again it's debatable. We've lost quite a few high earners so there's some wages freed up. If we really wanted him badly then I can believe he will be offered good wages to block any other clubs out of the deal completely. We simply don't know. I'm simply saying that to say it's BS is uninformed and there are some logical reasons as to why we would offer that much.

Very good was awesome for Montpellier. He is very technical but doesn't have 1 inch of physicality in him.

160k a week for Shaw sounds like something Chelsea would leak, giving their fans an excuse as to why they couldn't get him perhaps?

This, anyone who actually believes United will pay him this needs their head checking.

no way will a lad under the age of 21 get that type of deal at United. Dont even think Chelsea or City would even pay those wages themselves for Shaw.
