Didn't see that one coming but I reckon that'll be a great signing.

    He can bang them in but 75 is probably a bit excessive, then again some of the prices for Premier League players are rediculous.

    We've denied we've agreed to that. I know we want more and I can guarantee one of Chelsea or Utd will pay it.

    Rooney is a separate deal, nearly done from what I hear.

    Not a Utd or Chelsea fan but if it was my club I would rather pay £75m for him than £72m for a Real Madrid/Juve bench warmer.

    75m is just the upfront fee aparrantly, doesn't include the addons. This fee could be huge.

    I agree and I think he'll be a good signing for United, I do think it's a little over the top though.

    The main issue is, when clubs see that United are hunting for one of their players they make them play premium because they know they can afford it, our shirt sales alone pay for most of our purchases... i mean look at Pogba, We took Zlatan on a free and his shirt sales alone paid for Pogba's entire transfer...

    If the lad doesn't want to play at Everton any more then getting 75mil for him is great. The only thing that baffles me about it is mourinho has twice got him out of Chelsea when he was the manager and lukaku hasn't changed scores goals but is a lazy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ at times

    Exacly Mourinho got rid of him because of his laziness don't understand why he'd buy him back now.

    Why does everybody 'presume' this.

    Ibra, pogba, even if ronaldo returned, would not have an impact on the price ye recieve from shirt sales.

    Ye have a contract with adidas. For 'X' amount of money, ye do not have to hit target sales, the contract is the contract, even if ye sell more than expected ye will not gain more.

    The only ones who gain from shirt sales of any club are your adidas/nike/puma etc.

    for example, if united only sold 1 lukaku jersey, ye would still get the same revenue in than if ye sold 1 million lukaku jerseys

    Clubs still earn alot of money selling their shirts on their own personal website, Manchester United made £23 per shirt they sold last year when buying pogba so while ofc its not all the money made back but from the partnership with adidas they made 75million and then the shirt sales individually from the website also made alot too

    Not sure about this think it would be poor business sense if a bonus system/payment for X amount more shirt sales wasn't built in to the contract

    But if you only sold 1 lukaku Jersey then Adidas and puma will only offer you $45 for a kit deal next time around. Maybe the kit sales don't go directly into club coffers that season, but it def makes a difference when negotiating the next deal

    How, adidas still make the jersey, the shirt supplier is always the main earner.

    First of all, it needs to be cleared up that United don’t get all of the revenue from shirt sales, far from it. Adidas don’t pay the club £75 million for nothing. In fact, the industry standard is for the kit provider to receive 85-90% of all revenue from shirt sales. However, as McKeegan rather confidently pointed out in subsequent tweets, the shirt itself is not the only way clubs earn money from shirt sales, there are also the printing and the badges. So let’s do the maths.

    According to United’s online shop, the printing and badges cost an extra £13.61. If we’re being optimistic, and United earn all of that plus 15% of the shirt revenue, that amounts to £23.82 per shirt. Which means, to cover the full £89 million, United would need to sell 3.736.356 Pogba shirts.

    As i was saying obviously they don't earn all the money but they earn around £23 per shirt and last year earned around 35million from sales

    Great reply.

    I knew adidas claimed the biggest percentage, didnt think it was up at 90% though.

    True and he's already proven in the PL. no way Morata is worth 90 mil like RM was asking for

    Also United's 10-15% royalty fee only kicks in when a target number number of shirts are sold, given how much they rake in from this adidas deal each year.

    I think Bayern Munich are one of the few exceptions where they get higher royalties from the kit supplier as they're part owned by adidas.

    As a united fan I ain't sure I'd be happy with the signing, if it were to happen.
    When you look at the likes of suarez and higuian going for the same sorta price.
    He maybe proven in the premier league, but I ain't sure he's done enough, or good enough for the figures mentioned.
    Personally, as hard as it is to say, I think arsenal have done better business in buying lacazette

    I wouldn't pay 90 mil for him if I was a prem league team, but I can def see how he is worth that much to Real.

    How long has it been since they've had a Spanish (and even better Madrid) born homegrown attacker in their front line? Raul was the last I can think of unless I'm forgetting someone... which is likely

    not to mention Morata is probably gonna be #1 striker for Spain at the world cup. You can't buy homegrown superstars.... well unless you're Real and you sold him to Juve in the first place lol

    I dont think he improves them alot from last year as he is just replacing ibras goals. Still think they need more before I'll start worrying. Good signing though...
