not just about the goals. he's got technique, dribbling, change of pace, strength aerial ability, defensively solid, and his passing has really improved while at juventus. each season his chance creation goes up and last season he had joint most assists in serie a.

hopefully this saga ends this weekend or by monday! crazy to think we're only about 2 weeks away from the first league game!

fun fact is if we do land him, it would mean we've signed the statistical (as in whoscored.com rating) best player in serie a, bundesliga, and ligue 1, all in one window, without CL football. quite impressive.
Money talks also of course big history of MU
Except Pogba other signings were fair market value...so its not about money for sure.

Even we managed to make couple of good signing without CL this season...especially Kante sacrificed CL and dint cost much either.

Its about identifying right targets ahead and the club selling the plan to the players
Bazinga is right, we were throwing money at players like bale and Muller previous summers but they snubbed us. Money talks but it is more than that, not sure we would have gotten our targets without mourinho for example.
+1
Imo mourinho plays a huge part in our signings,even if we had lvg and with cl football I doubt we'd get close to luring any of them.
a bit of nostalgy

Mou on why Fosu-Mensah and Smalling left out of training, but no word from him on Pereira or Schweini yet.

"Fosu-Mensah is not so much injured. But he has this little thing that we want to be careful with given that he is young. He is separate from the group until he is 100 per cent back."

"Chris Smalling has had a recurrence of an old injury from the previous season. We shall see what happens, but already he is suspended for the first game against Bournemouth."

Don't tell me Smalling is burnt out because he was overused last season. We should probably sign another CB just in case. Our glass wall is very fragile.
No deal done between Clubs
Its a game between Italy press and UK press who announce it first and who is worse.

- Mino Raiola (@MinoRaiola)
+1
"Mino Raiola" has less credibility then Metro
+3
i'm fed up with Raiola and part of me wants us to shift our attention to other targets

The Italian Ballague

Raiola is so unprofessional. The man is truly the embodiment of greed. Oh and scum
Can't we just round up all these greedy football agents and send them to ISIS? I'm sure it will help in making the world a better place.
+2
Agreed. They would bleed ISIS for every last penny, thus ending the conflict in the middle east Lol ;)

Just came across this. Dunno if true

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set a new kit sale record in the 1st week after the unveiling of the 2016/2017 home kit.

Worldwide 7.6 million shirts have been sold with Zlatan's name on it generating £76.3 million!
Source? lol that 7.6 million is very close to Sweden population :P

Its based of twit from some random guy...but if true it will be all over internet in no time and nobody will be surprised.

But its funny how the article is trying to prove the source of incomes to justify 100m for Pogba is easily affordable...ofcourse it affordable and united will make money of Pogba shirt sales as well. Its not about feasibility of the deal which is making news.
+1
Not sure but that's impressive if true. But don't think all that revenue is going to us, it is going to go to adidas. Something like 90% of that revenue.
Zlatan can sell more shirts than world's population. That number is fake!
+1
SiF is right, it's a myth that a player can "pay for themselves in shirt sales" because almost all the profits go to the kit manufacturer and not the club. Really it seems like the manufacturers should help pay transfer fees since it helps them so much
It also doesn't matter how many shirts an individual players sells; it matters if an individual (or group of individuals) helps a team sell more shirts overall. Let me explain:

Let's suppose United sold 20 million kits last season. You might be able to say, "Wow! Ibra BY HIMSELF has sold around 1/3 as many shirts as our entire team sold last year. He is repaying his transfer fee with kit sales!" However, what if United only sells 19 million kits overall this season? -Sure, Ibra comprised a huge percentage of that 19m, but United would actually generate less money overall from kit sales. It's great for Ibra if his name is on 30% of the kits sold this season, but United needs to actually sell more kits overall.

Also, I'm not sure how accurate this is but according to this link Barcelona were the #1 kit sellers last season with 3.6 million sold. If that is true, no way there have been 7.6m Ibra shirts sold:

lol of course theoretically yes, but dont be so hypothetical, ibra has his own brand. he has deals from vitamin water, to clothing line, to perfume. he's probably in the top 5-10 marketable players in all of football. he will sell a lot of shirts from even casual football fans all over the world, so there's no practical chance our overall shirt sales will go down. he'll add to the number we sell, but of course it is difficult to say by how much. given he was a free transfer, financially speaking you have to say this could be our best transfer in a long time both for cost to performance and marketing potential.

in terms of gross shirt sales, it is difficult to know which club sells the most. i have heard last season was barca but also heard last season we sold the most shirts. it depends on who you ask and how they calculated their totals.

ibra will sell shirts
rooney always sells shirts
martial will sell shirts
heck,even mourinho will sell shirts

if we get pogba, he will also sell shirts. easy to predict a huge uptick in shirt sales. last year basti martial and depay shot to the top 10 early on in the season, i imagine ibra and pogba will crush in sales.

http://www.totalsportek.com/football/clubs-with-most-shirt-sales/

this site has 3 united players in the top 10 global shirt sales (martial at #3, basti at #4, rooney at #6). also has us selling more shirts than anyone. it was released 6 days before the one you posted. not sure which is more accurate.

given we broke records in shirt sales by 50% i'm inclined to believe that we were actually the top shirt sellers: http://www.totalsportek.com/money/new-manchester-united-adidas-kit-record-breaking-sales/
Some guys leaving including Schweinsteiger. Great player but he was worth more when SAF tried to sign him up.

Daily mail says Pogba is a done deal. Nothing from Sky yet so maybe another rotten egg from DM.

Should be done soon because Mou wants to get his unit ready wwell before deadline day. He'll leave it late for slight tune ups in certain areas but he wants his incoming players on book by then.

Do your business early, watch everyone else bungle around in anticipation of the deadline later.
I like bastian,he had a fantastic career but i'll be ok if he leaves.
Reading the articles about these 9 players leaving,i get a bit worried.not that i believe what they write but still.why should guys like cbj(he signed a new contract),schneiderlin,tuanzebe and fosu-mensah leave?
Jose just lost some good words for tuanzebe after the wigan game.and reporters are writing that he may leave?complete idiots
Lel Fosu-Mesiah is not leaving, he is Jose type of player, maximum he will go on loan
Certainly a change from our previous way of doing things, that is waiting till deadline day to pull surprises.

Sorry to interrupt this forum; but @Kayslay check your comment wall bro.

Everyone to kayslays wall!

Yes sir!
I'm putting up a KEEP OUT sign
Easy.i followed sergios call,spent about half of my day on your wall but now theres nothing more to see.in the end i was starring for 2 hours on your wall hoping for a picture of pogba in the united shirt to pop up.but nothing happened...i'll chech someone else's wall maybe i get more lucky there ;)
+1
Expected flame war. Disappointed.
+2
We will have the best squad in Englad if we sign Pogba combined with the joint best manager in the world. So yes we will be a force to reckon with. The fear factor finally maybe back.
+2
Hopefully but it'll take time for players to gel together this season. But with the squad we have now, I'm expecting a top 3 finish here
All the top teams have strengthened or will buy soon in the next month. It is very very difficult to tell who will have the best squad in the league right now.

If Arsenal get Mahrez they are going to be a handful

Liverpool have bought very wisely with Mane and Wijnaldum. Add Coutinho/Firmino to the mix with a fit Sturridge. That looks very very good up top.

Chelsea have got Kante - their midfield was non functional last year and this might be the phillip they needed along with Conte.

Hard to tell man. I fear every top team that City meets this year lol
+7
I can see your point with City, Chelsea and even Arsenal but Liverpool squad hasn't really impressed me. They have a world class coach though. That will surely make a difference.
+3
i don't think we could be called the "best squad" in england just because we changed a manager and signed 4 players. This team still has the same weaknesses that have yet to be addressed for a few seasons running. A weak defence and the usual disjointed attack that relies on individual moments of brilliance instead of teamplay. The team also needs to unlearn LVG mentality and learn jose tactics.

I'm not trying to be negative but I'm being realistic to realise that this team of ours, who have not come close to challenging the title for 3 seasons now isn't just gonna transform overnight into the "best squad". I do hope that we will though. Jose has a rebuilding job on hand and we would do very well to be challenging for the title this season. I hope we sign more than 4 players and continue to clear out the deadwood.

Still, the best team in England last year was a team called Leicester.

So, how many players did they buy and for how much?
Being the best team and having the best squad is completely different things. If we sign Pogba i dont think there is any other team that have better squads as it stands currently. How it all comes together, im not sure. We will have to wait and see.
Chelsea finished 10th last season but I think they have arguably the best squad depth in the league right now.
+6
Not sure about being the best, but you will DEFINITELY be the most expensive. By a long shot.

If you fail to get a top 4 finish, Mourinho will be sacked.
+1
On paper maybe, on paper Leicester had no chance last season. Won't really know until PL starts, especially after injuries.
+1
we'll hardly have the best squad. we don't have the best strikers, mids or defence.

and pogba is an expensive luxury, really not impressed with that signing.
