  1. Apparently Zidane doesn’t want Eriksen. So that may be dead. And if it is, Eriksen may end up taking a new deal with Spurs. That’d be cool with me obviously. But hopefully we still bring in a couple new midfielders.
     
  2. I need to get off Twitter lol

    Every hour the N’Dombele story changes.
     
  3. 90m for Maguire
    60m for AWB

    That is straight bonkers. Spending 100m in a window used to be unheard of. Now you spend that and get Maguire.

    Yeah it's madness. Ronaldo going to Real was massive at the time. It's peanuts now.

    Fwiw I think both fees will be slightly lower. ~50 and ~70/80

    Imo, Allegri is the ONLY manager available right now that could keep pace with the rest of the top 6 with the squad available. Putting Frank Lampard in with 1 season's managerial experience, with no Hazard and no £££ to spend would be irresponsible and disrespectful to the clubs best ever player. Allegri is a proven manager who can navigate a big league and the CL, anyone else is just being set up to fail.

    I do not exist.

    Allegri has also just said he's taking a year off so I wouldn't hold your breath there. Stranger things have happened but still.

    I feel like Lampard is inevitable but I am not sure it's the right decision. Although he has worked fairly well with Chelsea youth at Derby this season. I just think it's way too soon for him.

    Yeah I've just read that he's not available. Impossible not to feel pessimistic about next season; Frank Lampard is an extremely intelligent man but he is still a rookie in management and will have to juggle 4 competitions, the two most important being ones he has zero experience managing in. They really need to find some way of cheating their way around the transfer ban lol - "Breaking News: Chelsea sign Lille forward Nicholas Pepe on 3 year work experience deal" :crylaugh:

    I would say hiring Lampard is a mistake for Chelsea but Solskjaer is our manager

    Looking forward to the Copa America starting tonight, at least partly because the transfer window is the most irritating part of the year.

  13. I feel like the Pogba/Eriksen stuff is holding up most of the moves this window.

    United subreddit is convinced De Ligt is signing with us. The masochist in me CANNOT WAIT until he signs with Barca. It's going to be a glorious meltdown.

    He's not going to sign for a club that's not playing in the UCL. His links with PSG/Barcelona/Juve are real, everything else has to be bullshit.

  16. He said Vertonghen is his role model. Too bad he wants to get paid mega wages.

    With all due respect to the club I support who in their right mind would join us this summer if Barca and Juve are in for them.

    Let's be honest, signing for United now would be career suicide.

    @fangclubb Supporter

    For a top player, yeah. Would be ridiculous. For younger less high profile players it's a good opportunity. The chance to "rebuild" United or whatever bollocks. De Ligt is in the first catagory.

  22. Signing with United wouldn’t be as bad as him signing with PSG.

    True, I was talking specifically about a player of his caliber.

    Both are bad choices when you have Barca, Juventus and probably Bayern as alternatives.

    De Ligt should avoid PSG, might as well just stay with Ajax for another year if he can't come to an agreement with Barca/Juve.
