    I also believe I said it was a trial and to.see if he could develop into a centre back.

    Not many people get past him and he's fast. You train the tenancy to.slide.out of him and he could develop into a quality centre back alongside Maguire and Varane if you get him.

    They are killing me with these "square in the middle of the workday because that's night time in Japan" group stages.

    agreed. on the other hand, it's helping to ease the pain of the end of the euros, as it gives me something to focus on at work other than..work.

    Its not.just the sxn saying although I'm not saying they're not.the initial source. The rumour tracks with other things I've been reading over the last few days so it's plausible.


    Signing Son up for an extension is a good.move, I think Spurs would miss him almost as much as Kane if he went too.

    can be copied/pasted when rich starts going on about united not being big enough, or wealthy enough, or whatever. four of the five biggest transfers in the history of the league, all during a time in which united supposedly wasn't spending enough - the oil clubs are nowhere to be found.

    We need a CDM, this summer.

    Are we going to buy one?
    So far it seems unlikely

    It's not about spending, it's about getting what you need when you need it.
    We needed a CB last summer, didn't get one.

    And that doesn't factor in net spend. United sold Lukaku & Fellaini the summer they bought Maguire, both of them brought in more than Maguire cost to buy so the club didn't really spend any money on him.

    He should only get that after the end of next season, assuming he's won something.
    At least it's only a 2 year extension.

    sounds like something is happening with verane's move this morning, although he's still attending training with real madrid.

    big window for united. big wages, big expectations.

    Exactly the sort of player the club should be signing.

    Elite level, a serial winner with at least 5 good years left in him

    hmm, interesting. good long-term plan to replace silva, especially with rudi and christensen out of contract next year atm. cash + zouma is the deal being reported.

    striker should be addressed, but the fact that we heard nothing on this one previously and it seems to be humming along leads me to believe we're playing things close to the chest this window.

    real madrid supposedly have upwards of 170 mil with the verane money coming in, and are still aiming for mbappe. i don't know how psg makes that move, unless mbappe makes it known that he no longer wants to play there. aside from being a generational talent, he's the face of world football atm, marketing-wise. i'd guess his value to that club is five or six times that fee.

    Varane is a quality signing. Loving our business so far.

    Now add a defensive midfielder and I’ll be ecstatic.

    Sounds like Kounde to Chelsea for £25million + Zouma is pretty close to completion.

    He's a solid CB, smart signing

    it's a good price tag that should allow us to go make another signing or two without having a huge imbalance (assuming haaland is not happening). that's less than what milan paid us for tomori, and we have accumulated 50-60mil from selling off tomori, giroud, and parts of the loan army.

    Money to put towards Rice, who wants to go to Chelsea so it's just a matter of agreeing a fee with West Ham

    Malen to Dortmund is officially done.

    Not a like-for-like replacement on Sancho, and seems more like a Haaland replacement coming in a season early. I like the signing; he seems like yet another guy that can come in, produce, and then move on for a much larger fee than what Dortmund paid for him. I figure, we signed him for 30million, so we should expect a bid from United in two years at about 75million.

    I do think we need someone on the roster to step up and take on more of the playmaking duties so Malen and Haaland can finish. Plenty of guys who could do such a thing - Reyna, Brandt, Hazard, just to name a few. Time will tell who can and will.
