    Alexis Sanchez?

    You've then got Rashford, Martial and Greenwood.

    No number 9 admittedly but we should still be able to get goals.

    6 PL deal sheets submitted so surely you'll sign at least 1, possibly 2?

    Iwobi to Everton for 35mil is one of them <laugh>

    I thought Man Utd were keeping quiet about Fernandes, apparently not though.

    I love these transfer windows - they're full of ****e. We're in for this player, that player, snubbed by everyone from Neymar to Eyore - and on whose say-so. All this unsubstantiated crap is fed into news media as click bait for retards and people with nothing better to do than watch Sky Sports between loan shark ads at ten in the morning. No ****er on earth knows what any club is after - nobody in the media that is (plus Woodward), but still these hacks come in day by day with crap like - 'a source close to the club' or 'Sky Sports sources tell us". The clubs themselves have neither the time or the inclination to come out each time a rumour appears to quash it, so the media frenzy - all of it's own making, feeds off itself.

    We've done good business. Ole will keep some of the deadwood until he sees how we're progressing towards the winter window. If more need to go - so be it, if we need players in, fine, it's a re-building exercise, it will take several windows to complete.

    To me your starting back 4 is solid, up front fine again but still have problems in midfield.

    No idea what he meant, it makes no sense at all!

    I'm ok with our signings, although I agree there has been plenty of hysterical social media outrage from so called United fans.

    It's just nonsense. We've done a windows worth of transfers and if we need more in January then I would assume we will do more.

    If Pogba gets his head straight and plays well then midfield isn't actually that bad.

    If he doesn't though, it's not looking good there I admit. At least now with a decent centre half partnership we don't have to have three at CM all playing a defensive role.

    Despite all the fanfare - de Gea has yet to sign his new contract - European window still open until September. Just saying..............

    We should sell him! I have zero tolerance for players holding the club at ransom. Especially, if the basis for the gridlock is to earn more than Sanchez. If he doesn't want to sign and holding out to leave on a free, it is best to get rid of him now along with Sanchez (if his head is still not straight). We can then structurally reduce the foolishly high wage bill that yields poor return when you look at the performances over the years of chasing stars. Doing that will give us room to make smart acquisitions in the near future and with smart contracts that are incentivized hansomely purely on performance.
