Club statement on DDG's transfer: http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Football-News/2015/Sep/manchester-united-statement-in-response-to-real-madrid-comments-on-david-de-gea-transfer.aspx?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=ManUtd

Doesn't seem like we did much wrong here...
Manchester United notes Real Madrid’s statement on the attempt to sign David De Gea and sell Navas to Manchester United. The Club feels compelled to provide some clarification with the following facts.

• Manchester United did not seek contact from Real Madrid for the sale of David. David is a key member of our squad and the club’s preference was not to sell. • No offer was received for David until yesterday.

• At lunchtime yesterday, Real Madrid made its first offer to buy David. A deal was agreed between the clubs, which included Navas being transferred to Old Trafford. The deals were dependent on each other.

• In the last several hours of the process, with Navas at the Real Madrid training ground, Real Madrid were controlling the documentation processes of David, Navas and Real Madrid. Manchester United was in control only of the documentation of Manchester United.

• Manchester United sent transfer documents for both players to Real Madrid at 2042 BST. David’s documentation was returned by Real Madrid to Manchester United without the signatory page at 2232 BST.

• At 22:40 BST, minutes before the deadline, major changes to the documentation came through to Manchester United which immediately put the deals at risk. • Only at 2255 BST were the documents that are needed to cancel David’s contract received by Manchester United from Real Madrid.

• At this point Navas’ documentation was still not returned by Real Madrid.

• At 2258 BST, the transfer agreement was sent back by Manchester United, uploaded onto TMS and accepted – all before the deadline.

• It is our understanding that the deals couldn’t happen because:

- Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents onto TMS in time (Manchester United did)

- Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents to the Spanish league in time, per reports it seems some 28 minutes after the deadline • The fact that Manchester United filed the papers on time was acknowledged by the Football Association, who offered to support that claim in any discussions with FIFA. The Club offered this assistance, as well as its own timestamped documents to Real Madrid but they have chosen not to go down this route.

Manchester United acts appropriately and efficiently in its transfer dealings. The Club is delighted that its fan-favourite double Player of the Year, David de Gea, remains a Manchester United player.
Good luck Anthony Martial! According to most people he might not be worth half of what you paid, but what's €50m anyway? I earn that in a measly 1700 years of hard work.
Not sure if this was already mentioned: "Manchester United Reportedly Turned Down Chance to Buy Marco Reus"

http://solita.net/2015/09/01/manchester-united-reportedly-turned-down-chance-to-buy-marco-reus/

ESPN FC is reporting.
Don't rub it in man. I saw that earlier today but I just refused to believe it
Won't buy this bs.. Unless Reus or his agent or bvb is the source.
Reus stand has been simple, he will not leave Dortmund. If he decides to leave then Bayern will not let him come to us or any other club without having a say in the matter.
Can understand the Hernandez departure as he clearly wanted out and we got a replacement in Martial.

But why the f**k did the club loan out Januzaj? Makes no sense. We literally have one option for the right wing and that is Mata who shouldn't even be playing there in the first place or god forbid the return of Valencia as a winger.

Really thought we would sign a surprise winger today, f**k I would have settled for Gaitan at this point.
+1
Yeah, exactly. I'm not sure why people are having a go at LVG in response to Chica transfer. He WANTED OUT. lol.

But the Januzaj loan makes no sense. I thought it might mean something else is happening - i.e., someone else is coming in.

On a positive note: Januzaj will play lots at Dortmund, which will surely progress his development. AND it looks like Pereira will step into the macth-day squad
I was daydreaming thinking "give those same new players to Fergie and watch us win everything". Boy, what wouldn't he do with the squad we now have...
On another note, thinking back on what Zlatan had said about LVG being over patronising and his control freak father figure issues, I think the lad had a point. Look at this previous "big" success, most were with youngish teams. A father figure can do wonders putting a motivating confident arm around the shoulders of impressionable youngsters... But it becomes a complete different ball game dealing with adults as IMO has been the case with Valdes. Don't come tell me a consummate pro like Valdes would refuse to play with the reserves... I see more of a relation issue here than anything else. How would you react if you'd had a professional career at the highest level and some coach talked you down like you were some upstart... Yeah, you might think FU out of principles because there are things adults won't take out of dignity.
I fear his overbearing mind set might stifle our creativity and has contributed to our lack of manhood on the pitch so far. I seriously hope I am wrong though and that we'll quickly grow back into a force teams a scared of - which OFC as we all know has nothing to do with size but attitude.
Just a few thoughts...
Ok and your point? We all know what LvG is like, his insanity is no secret and his methods are as controversial as they are successful.

Everybody is losing their minds over inconsistent and often drab performances, the fact that we got rid of so many players (tell me how many of those players deserved to be playing for United, let alone walk into any other top team in the world - not many) and that our transfer dealings have been more or less a joke but that's not LvG's fault entirely.

In the end, United are not a sinking ship anymore because LvG steadied it...it might take some more time for all engines to start firing again
+1
Also Fergie played people out of position all the time which cost us a certain Paul Pogba. He often played boring football and ground out many results especially in his last years.
He's also the guy who let the squad deteriorate to the point where 3 years on, only 5 players are left from his era (with Carrick and Rooney looking like husks of their former selves) and who handpicked the disaster that was Moyes
+1
Valdez has himself admitted that he is a hard person to deal with on and off the pitch. Do you think SAF would have treated Valdez any different after he refused to play and posted rubbish on social media? I'm glad we don't have a doormat manager. And lvg for his part has bought in experienced professionals like Schweini with whom he has worked before.
TCC talking sense?
*Blink*
lol
One of the add ons clauses for this deal is that Martial wins the Ballon d'or, apparently that's how highly they rate him.
+1
In that case, I sure hope we end up having to pay 80m Euros for him one day!
They should add a clause if the virus is ever interested in Martial then virus should pay Monaco £50 mil on top of what they pay us. #AntiVirus #Malware

Martial can become an instant hero by downing the visiting merseysiders.
Source on this.

That is an unusual add-on but if true then it really is a massive statement.
yeah these are the add ons -

€50m(£36m), plus €30m addons (€5m each time he is league top scorer up to 3 times, €5 if he wins Golden Boy, €10m if he wins Balon D'or).

if any of these do happen then it will be well worth it
So is that mean Lvg will gv more chance to our youngster?pereira lingard mcnair wilson.these kids not hv many chance at united compare to AJ,so thats why we loaned him bcos lvg hv seen enough what he is capable where its time he get loan.
pereira is super talented have no clue why we haven't seen any of him yet, except in glimpses. Mcnair is still too inexperienced to play cb regularly, he can pass the ball though.
That's one thing i will always disagree with Van Gaal.
Pereira and (imo) Lingard are much better talents than Januzaj, yet he trusts him over them.
Baffling.
I'm glad he was loaned out
There was a time when Manchester United was shelling out 30million or more for a player, almost everyone would know who that player was.

I'm disappointed that no matter how big the prospect is, 36million seems excessive for a player who is pretty much an unknown and unproven.

He doesn't even look as talented as Ronaldo at 19.

Since he is the new No.9, I will compare him to our previous no.9, Berbatov who cost us £30.75 million.

As much as I would like to be upbeat about this new signing, I cannot help think about the other player(s) we could have signed for 36 million.

I hope i'm wrong though and marshal proves to be a wonder signing (or maybe just adds to his pressure to succeed with such a price tag)

Someone tell me LVG has not gone mad.
LOL Schneiderlin said Rooney had no idea who he was and asked him who Martial is.

"He doesn't even look at talented as Ronaldo at 19". Even? Mate... Ronaldo at 19 was instantly one of our best players. 2 years later he became without a doubt one of the most talented players to ever play in the Premier League.
And that transfer happened 10 years ago. The market then and the market now are completely different. A player like an 18 year old Ronaldo in today's age would probably cost around 40m pounds, especially with everyone having access to Youtube/Twitter etc.

Almost nobody here has even ever seen this guy play and already they're turning their backs on him. Sure it's a huge pricetag, but at least let him play one game before we criticize him to such extent.
+1
I think i'm being pessimistic here looking at his vids and stats but i certainly don't see him having more raw talent than ronaldo to justify the price tag.

however, i do hope he does well, bcos if he does it means that we do well as well...

apparently thiery henry rates him so i guess time will tell....
Wild speculation at best. Yes the money's ludicrous but nobody knows yet. I'll pay heed to opinions once we've had tangible stuff to elaborate on. Until then...

I'll concede I find it stupid to spend that much on a virtually unknown when we have confirmed absolute class in Perreira and no less than solid quality in Wilson and Lingard.
But that's the thing mate, why are you comparing him with Ronaldo? Memphis, Sterling, KdB, Hazard, Pogba, Neymar all don't have the same amount of raw talent than Ronaldo did. That's why Ronaldo is where he is today and why he's been the top 2 best players in the world since '07.
just think of it like this. hes worth 1 andy carroll + 1m
Congrats on signing Anthony Marshall :3

Jokes, its Martial (literally, no fancies). Can't believe my mates are going like "Marshall" xD
what if he turns out to be the new bebe
What if he turns out to be the new Henry?

Semantics mate, lets give the kid a chance, he is here now for better or worse.
+4
what if that what if doesn't happen
+3
bebe is bought 7 mil by the way. this guy better not be the same
