    BBC reporting that we aren’t willing to pay the £68 million that Sporting want.

    I’m surprised that none of our managers have walked since Woodward was appointed.

    I like that stance though, for once you won't be held to ransom. Bruno isn't guaranteed to set the premier league on fire. Getting someone like Maddison in the summer for less than 70m would be better than getting Bruno for that price imo.

    Yeah, like that’s actually going to happen. Maguire went for £85m. We’re talking Coutinho money for Maddison.
    City spend a lot of money across the board but are never held to ransom in terms of fee's, they have never spent more than 60/65m on a single footballer. United adopting that thought process would be good to see.

    City spent £70m on Mahrez for him to play second fiddle to Sané (until Sané was dropped). They spent the equivalent of another £60 on Cancelo, a bench-warmer. They spent £50m on Stones, who has been nothing but a laughing stock at the back.

    Heck, even you guys paid £70m for Pepe, who was a massive gamble. But you needed a winger as much as we need a 10. Are you telling me that we shouldn’t take a similar risk with Fernandes?

    Mahrez was 60m. My point still stands, Mahrez has been excellent for City on the whole, he also doesn't play the same side as Sane. I can see why your board are being tentative spending 68m on a Portuguese league player, would make sense spending 40m on Soumare and then going in for Maddison next summer. No way he's Coutinho money either, maximum of 80m.

    The club want both. :joy: Considering you clearly haven't been following United news (unsurprisingly as you're an Arsenal fan), take the word from people who have been following United transfer reports all window. Ole wants Bruno now and one of Maddison/Grealish in the summer.

    From a logical point of view getting Bruno and Maddison is pointless and something I don't think you'll do. Think about it, you aren't going to play Bruno deep, if you do its a complete waste. You'll sign one of them and then a deeper CM in the summer. Or vice versa.

    We've discussed it in the thread multiple times and I have no intention of going there again. I'm simply informing you as you've been banned of what so many reports have stated this window.

    Reports are great and good to create conversation. But you have to be more logical with the majority of reports.

    Ive said before for me personally its not ideal to sign bruno and maddison/grealish but bruno can play the roaming playmaker role /more b2b as he has done half of his games this season, the other half have been at number 10, but due to it being 50/50 on playing deeper, it may not be his best role/position but the 4231 we use doesnt use his best role/position, we could play both just in certain games, teams that sit further back, obviously wouldnt play both vs the top 6 teams.

    11.52 he posted a "oh and hi" in the Arsenal thread.

    Curious how we will line up at Liverpool.

    Think we're going the regular 4atb.
    Greenwood ST and Martial LW or James LW and Greenwood RW?

    Assuming Rashy isn't fit.

    If we do go 4atb, I think Ole will go James LW, Greenwood RW if Rashford isn't fit, I don't think he'll want to put Greenwood directly up against Van Dijk so will keep Martial upfront.

    I think this is most likely but personally I believe DJ is better at RW.
    Where he can put the crosses in.

    Yeah €80m is definitely too much. Sporting need the money, we're the only club in for him, they need to come down in their valuation.

    We've put in a stupid bid, Sporting want a ridiculous fee. Can both sides just stop messing about and meet in the middle.

    They get the money they desperately need, we get the player we desperately need. Win win.

    I don’t mind not wanting to overpay but we’re actively trying to underpay. 39m is a joke.

    Saying that a club wont buy two 60m+ footballers for one position when a lot of other areas need funds isnt talking ****.

    Fair play if united do, but again, just being logical.

    Midfield is our major area of need.



    This has been reported elsewhere too. United want Bruno now as a long term Pogba replacement and then a 10 in the summer.

    I know it looks like big expense but remember that Pogba will be sold.

    It is when the people who actually have sources at the club are saying that's our transfer plan to target those players. Just give it up ffs.

    I think playing Bruno deeper will be very stupid. He can do a job but the balance of your midfield wont be right

    We probably won't play that way every game. It'll probably be like that against lesser teams having the two different creative options in midfield, then will change the balance for games against the bigger teams.

    I agree with not overpaying for Bruno. I think he is worth 40-50m.

    The problem is us not having a back up. It took us 1-2 weeks after first January for us to start to look at transfers and we locked onto Bruno and him only.
