fellaini pictured in crutches today. we are down to just cleverley fletcher and herrera
you mean fletcher and herrera ;)

In all seriousness, the MC problem has been evident for years. Fergie papered over the cracks and now its so lacklustre. How can 3 managers so far not identify we are very weak in that area. Hopefully LVG will wise up.
If we fail to land Vidal, I think we should get Song on loan from Barça. He has ample amount of PL experience and we all know about his superb link-up with RvP when on the counter. Moreover, since it will be a loan deal, we can make a move for Strootman in the January window as he will completely recover by that time and given the kind of equation he shares with LvG, I'm pretty confident that he'll join us.
I think loan move will only benefit the club, not sure why we don't do it, less risky. If the players play well we sign him permanently it's a win win situation imo
If barca are indeed offering to pay his wages then we should go for him even if only to counterbalance nani's wages. We need more options in cm even if it is just for a loan

Regarding Blind: these days, United seem wary of buying players from the Eredivisie. That's why they didn't go for Strootman last year.
When did the last time United brought a player from Eredivisie that flop?
+1
Buttner...but he was not signed for the first team.
Yeah that does not make sense.

Didn't we get Jaap Stam, Van Nistlerooy and Ji-Sung Park from the Eredivisie? None of them flopped they were all great players for the club, its a market we've had a lot of success from.

As NiC said Buttner was signed as a cover player and nothing more.
he has mentioned "these days"
Even if "these days" United only manage to bought 1 player, and that is a squad player who happen to do alright for his role and we also manage to get a decent price for him. not sure what he's trying to say here. My only guess is he questioning the quality of the players but then again most people underrated Eredivisie players anyway
i think blind is a liability due to his lack of strength and pace. just another player who wont be capable of going past defenders on his own and will struggle to contain athletic opponents
Official: FIFA reject appeal of Barcelona against transfer ban, Barcelona won't be able to sign players in the next two transfer windows

What a joke this is! they temporarily lifted the ban so Barca could sign the players they want.
+2
Official: after considering the impact of such ban on Messi's future, FIFA, under the command of Sepp Blatter, has decided to postpone the transfer ban until at least Messi's retirement, or when he has moved to another club

As Marcos Rojo has medical, we're told Man Utd have yet to make a formal offer for any other player. 12 days to go. #mufc

ffs haha
I'm not sure exactly how transfers work but I think negotiations tend to take place before an actual "formal" offer is made.

Also I find it highly unlikely that the club would brief the press on any other formal offers we've made, most of our dealings have stayed relatively quiet until the deals were near completion.

Might not be as bad as it sounds, I could be wrong though and the club are just taking it far too easy... again.
+2
Yeah, I understand that more than likely interest needs to be clarified and negotiations started before a formal bid.

Just crazy that it has taken 3 months to make one formal bid (if true).
Yeah I totally agree mate.

Its been left too late... again.

Its really not good enough, least we've got three in so far, an improvement on last summer anyway, but going off reports we've failed to land a couple of real marquee targets.
Well apparently the guardian thinks we have tried to lure the likes of muller and reus and failed. Bit depressing but maybe with CL next season things will be a lot easier. We have just as much cash as any team our other and it is at least positive that we are going after the best players
In all talks about us getting a winger, if only this guy could fulfill his potential.

Still needs to work a lot in his decision making and finishing though.
+1
ty
Loves playing against Sunderland. Guess who we have next!
He's not a skilled player but a dribbler For ex like how Messi Glides through players

P.S not comparing players
Well it looks like barca's transfer ban is upheld, just waited for them to spend like 200 million euro this summer for that to go into effect
+1
Such a joke. "Now that you're squad is ready, here's your ban!! Oh, and if you're not ready, you can use the rest of this window to shore up your squad."

This isn't a shot at Barca, just how toothless FIFA is.

We're told Nani's wages around €6m (£4.8m) - that's what Man Utd will pay, in full, during his loan spell at Sporting Lisbon. #mufc

So Nani is on £92k a week... Absolute rip off for what we're getting out of him but a far cry short of the £120k a week nonsense that Graeme Bailey was spouting last night, that guy is an absolute weapon and I swear he has an agenda against us after his Thiago Alcantara rubbish was outed last summer, he took a lot of s**t for that from Utd fans.

So Rojo has cost us £20.8 million all in all counting both the fee and Nanis wages in the deal, potential silver lining is a change of scenery might be what Nani needs to rebuild his ailing career, you could think of it as an investment, he could return a reinvigorated player next summer or we can sell him on for something decent.

Considering City apparently forked out £32 million for Mangala who is about the same age as Rojo and they're both performing around a similar level in Portugal, Mangala edges it slightly but when you look at this summers WC Mangala was 4th choice CB for France and Rojo got in the all star team, doesn't look all that expensive when you compare the two really, I really like Mangala as well though don't get me wrong.

You tend to pay out the arse from Portuguese clubs anyway, just glad we got him.
+1
In my honest opinion,I think Mangala's got an edge over Rojo.

For me Rojo looks like a flashy defender, quick, technical, sort of attacking defender, and good at interceptions too.

But Managala on the other hand looks more calm and composed on the ball, with good positional awareness.Also, what we are lacking in the middle of the defense is a good commanding CB, who is also able to win aerial duels easily. I think Mangala comparatively looks more commanding in the air than Rojo.
Didnt the fee concerning Mangala go up to 42 million pounds?
Mangala was owned by a third part company that owned like 20% of his future fee.
Porto got a piece of the cake, but so did the company and also his former club Standard Liege. Thats why it took so long for City to complete the transfer.
Rojo will be great for LWB/LB cover and slots in perfectly as a LCB. Very sensible acquisition.

As mentioned by wenrooney. Mangala looks much more comfortable with aerial duals. With Vidic gone, we really need a beast in the air. Jones and Smalling can show flashes of aerial dominance but are not consistent enough yet. Plus, it is probably Evans' weakest area as well. Certainly an area we need to improve on.
@Wenrooney

I worded my post a bit wrong, I meant to say that Mangala does edge it slightly over Rojo, I've edited, I was just saying there isn't a huge difference between them or anything and when you compare the fees its not such a bad price.
Just realised we have to start playing Capital one cup from Round 2 instead of Round 3. Btw we're up against MK Dons. Let's not get defeated
+1
Apparently the club made huge offers for Muller and Reus this summer

http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/transfers/manchester-united-transfer-news-louis-van-gaal-tried-and-failed-to-sign-german-stars-thomas-muller-and-marco-reus-this-summer-9680611.html

A second report:
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/aug/20/thomas-muller-astronomical-manchester-united-offer-bayern-munich
I think this is probably true, everyone knows we want a winger that will create openings and/or get goals. The manager has already said we lack this kind of player.

Been reading a bit of talk that Reus turned the offer down as he was expecting Barca to come in for him this summer but they went for Suarez instead and left him in the cold, not sure if that's genuine or not.

I think we definitely wanted Muller, Van Gaal adores him, he made his breakthrough from the Bayern academy under him in the 09-10 season, fair play to him though, if he is Bayern through and through then so be it, cant complain about a bit of club loyalty to the club that made him.

Although I cant find an actual quote where he directly mentions United, he refers to several clubs:

‘The amount that foreign clubs were offering me was astronomical. But Bayern are my club, a change was not an issue for me.’

Clubs being in the plural lol.
Sky are saying the same, looks like we have been trying to land the superstars but have failed this summer on all of them like we did last summer. Not a great read
sound like there gonna be a much busy deadline day
