They don't need to sell, they don' t want to sellDante wrote: ↑Sun Jun 09, 2019 6:35 pm£40 million bid rejected apparently. Palace valuing him at £60 million.
Premier League players are going to be expensive, especially home grown ones, but I dunno it seems a bit much.
He's only 21 I suppose, so in theory you're paying for years of service, but I'm not sure.
It's way too much for an U21 player, we should walk away from the deal, it's daylight robbery he's just, not that good !Glorio wrote: ↑Wed Jun 26, 2019 12:34 pmLooks like it's almost done. £45M up front + £5M add-ons.
@Sigma, he's not really unproven - he's played brilliantly a full season in the premiership (not saying much - but people are talking about 105M for Joao Felix) , but how many fullbacks can you honestly say were better than him last year? You had Trent, Walker, not sure who else tbh. Of course he was playing without the pressure of a big club, but he was very impressive.
Hopefully, we try again for Zaha.
I have high hopes for this kid (Wan-Bissaka). And while it is quite a punt, it's a worthy punt.raycreative wrote: ↑Wed Jun 26, 2019 9:24 pmThe more i think about this the more i am prepared to give the lad a chance but there is a big BUT
I suspect,maybe unfairly,that Ed Woodward has been pushed into this quicker than he wanted, due to the bad feeling
I have spoken to several scouts who are friends that tell me this lad a serious chance
He is athletic and fast and has a good power of recovery.I was told to imagine Dennis Irwin which will do for me
Then you get to other side.Although the lad looks potentially expensive he is not
They have paid Crystal Palace £50m ish but will get back £20m from Zaha(Palce can then go and spend close to £100m and still be in profit)
From Wan_Bissaka's point of view the lad has gone from a £30k a week salary to a £70k a week salary which is a huge step up for him
From United's point of view £70k a week is cheap.What are City paying Kyle Walker?
Again from United's point of view a 5 year deal will cost them £50m plus £3.5m for 5 years so a total cost of £67.5m(The lad will stay on £70k a week even if he wins the world cup!!)
So 2 hopefully good years down the line and the lad goes for a new extension to his contract and will be told as EVERYBODY is to fornicate off.
He plays year 3 so now he has cost £50m plus c £10m in wages and he is a star.With the anticipated rise in the market they might get £80m/100m
Glazernomics at work
Also it will be a big ask for the kid to settle in immediately.He gets until Xmas with me
Now the big BUT
We need,i think we all agree 4 to 6 players and this is just one
I hear we are closer to McGuire than City.The main reason is that his agent,Paul Streford,(He of Wayne Looney fame) believes he can maniulate United more and get more agents fees out of United
Now whilst McGuire is a solid centre half and better than what we have he is no Rio and will never be
He can hold his own against mid table teams but can't stop the big players.I believe he is in his right club/level at Leicester
We need better
And who is to come in to the key aras in midfield?
Who will be our Toy Keane captain like player?
Who will be our Paul Scholes playmaker to help Pogba?
Not Fred or Sanchez
And who will replace Lukaku?
A long long way to go
