  1. They are probably losing Grealish though. There are reports that if/when Grealish leaves, Villa will put in a bid for Todd Cantwell.
  2. Barca, Juve and Real Madrid release statement regarding super league. https://www.juventus.com/en/news/articles/statement-from-barcelona-juventus-and-real-madrid-30-07-21
  3. United's preseason game against Preston has been cancelled due to 9 players and staff from United testing positive for covid. The positive tests were from lateral flow tests. The staff and players are in isolation while they await the results from the PCR tests. The game against Everton is still expected to go ahead. Also confirmed that Rashford will undergo surgery next week and is expected to return some time in October. Alex Telles picked up an ankle injury in training and will only return in September. Hopefully Shaw is okay for the start of the season as it was reported that he played through several injuries including broken ribs at the Euros. Eta. John Percy reporting that City have made a formal offer of £100m for Grealish. Eta 2. United issue statement that after further testing yesterday and today there are no positive cases within first team group. Premier league satisfied that covid protocols have been followed and the squad can return to training immediately.
  4. Marotta did give an interview a few days ago saying that Inter will not even consider any offer for Lukaku. ETA. Di Marzio reporting that progress is being made between Chelsea and Sevilla for Jules Kounde. Optimism that the deal will be concluded soon for a fee of around €30-35m + Zouma.
  5. Looks like Chelsea are going to land Kounde.
  6. That was just a convenient excuse. Alaba left Bayern because they refused to bend over and pay him €20+ million per year. He will happily player wherever Ancelotti wants him to since Real accepted his demands and handed him a 5 year contract at €24m/year + a signing bonus.
  7. I'm fine with Bailly and Lindelof as backups. Tuanzebe has shown some potential in flashes but right now he is most definitely not better (or even as good) than either Lindelof or Bailly and is as injury prone as Bailly is. He's also not a youngster anymore either - we need to send him out on loan or sell him because he is clearly 5th choice at United now. We are not doing his development any favours by hanging onto him just because he's an academy product. Phil Jones is unsellable.
  8. All the Glazer hate is for them saddling the club with debt from a leveraged buyout which has seen close to a billion pounds drained out of the club to service that debt. The Glazers get more than enough returns out of the the club regardless of how United perform on the pitch since the club pays out more in dividends every year than all the other clubs in the premier league combined.
  9. I don't think we will get anything more than €50m for Pogba. Maybe we will look at Neves if he leaves since we would need someone to replace his long passing range from deep. The Camavinga talks have died down and was reported that the player prefers a move to Spain. The profile of midfielder that Solskjaer has been trying to get in and that we have reliably been linked to under him has been B2B ball carrier types (Bellingham and Camavinga) so I wouldn't be too surprised if Renato Sanches' name pops up. Yeah. I'm not too fussed about losing Pogba. He's class on his day but those days are few and far between. He basically only shows up for about a third of a season and is either injured or meh for the rest. I'd have been more disappointed if we renewed him on 350-400k wages. He's done nothing at United to warrant that. Bruno has done more for United in 1.5 seasons than Pogba has done in 5 seasons.
  10. Some reports coming through now that talks with Real Madrid are at an advanced stage and it's just final details to be sorted out - fee expected to be around €50m. There's also increasing reports that PSG are going to make a formal offer for Pogba.
  11. Looks like United are close to reaching an agreement with Real Madrid for Varane.
