    Ed. Re Sanches ” I know his career paths well Nine.” Apologies Ed I know you do poor terminology from me.😊

    “SERGIO RAMOS has reportedly received transfer offers from Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

    The Spanish centre-back will become a free agent on July 1 following the expiration of his contract with Real Madrid.”??????

    No need to apologise at all Nine! I wasn’t meaning to sound funny about it.

    Sergio Ramos could be a decent option for a year, much like Thiago Silva & Cavani have been (albeit both were extended) but I’m not sure City need him do they? They are so strong at CB. PSG would be my bet. Utd may turn to him as a last resort if they can’t get Varane/Torres/Kounde or the like.

    Ed, yes I totally agree with you on Ramos. PSG look like his most likely destination to me too.

    Sky Sports reporting United have agreed a deal for Jordan Sancho for a fee in the region of Β£73m. Some good negotiating by United if accurate.

    Well Sean has been telling me it’s done for about 2 years πŸ˜†

    Very shrewd of Utd to have waited a year and not been pressured into paying silly money for him.

    We’ve just announced Patson Daka for 23m. Everything I’ve seen so far suggests he could be good.

    Great signing foxy. Very cheap aswell

    Do you not think 73m is exspensive Ed mate?

    We have seen a few players struggle to make the transition from Germany to the pl??he is English though so it be much easier

    Just wondering as it’s still massive mate. Not saying he’s not worth it just think it it’s big big money

    He could be the key to unlocking stubborning defences like villareal.

    Huge signing. Big lift for utd fans

    It’s a lot of money Sean and, like any transfer, is a risk. But considering he was quoted at more than Β£100mil last season and his numbers justified such a fee IMO. He’s only behind Messi for goal contributions over the last few seasons and is only 21. The risk is reasonably small as we’d not struggle to get back a large chunk of that fee if he doesn’t quite cut it.

    I’ve not been this excited about a transfer since Pogba came in (the less said about that the better πŸ˜‚). Even ignoring the money side of things, I genuinely can’t think of a winger I’d have rather we bought than Sancho. Utd have chased him ever since he was leaving City. We tried to get him then but waited and waited until he was available for a reasonable fee.

    Not suggesting it’s a bargain by any means. We can only judge that over the coming years, but I think it’s a very reasonable fee based on his potential and current ability.

    I do think the success of Sancho makes or breaks Ole at old trafford.

    Completely agree Harry. If Sancho flops, Ole is gone.

    Fair to say though that I’ve been wrong in the past when getting excited about buying players from Dortmund. There’s a real mixed bag of imports from Dortmund in the PL. Mkhitaryan and Kagawa flopped massively. I had high hopes for both. Nuri Sahin was not great (albeit via Madrid). Gundogan and Pulisic have been good, though.

    Hard to see Sancho not slotting right in. The end for Martial now?

    Bissaka, maguire, lindelof, Shaw
    Mctominay, pogba
    Sancho, Bruno, rashford,
    Cavani

    That’s a tasty starting 11, world class anchorman to replace mctominay and top centre back to replace lindelof and it would be phenomenal. Maybe tripper in for bissaka as he is far better in support of attack.

    Maybe ole now has a good enough team that the transition excuse is now expired and they should challenge? Jose or conte would be expected to seriously challenge with the players ole has I reckon.

    Lucky, I’m not doing the Conte/Jose/Ole debate again πŸ˜‚. I’m delighted Jose has gone and Conte isn’t at Utd.

    Completely agree though about Ole. He gets a CB and a midfielder then he absolutely has to put up a strong challenge or he’ll be gone and rightly so. This would be his 3rd full season so he has to start winning things now or at least coming very close in the big tournaments.

    The problem with the side you listed Lucky is that Cavani is old and definitely in his last season. It remains to be seen whether Greenwood can become a number 9, for all his talent. Also, Pogba has 1 year left and could well be gone which leaves a very average centre midfield, which is where games are won and lost against the top teams.

    You look at that Utd side though and, aside from Shaw (who walks into City’s side), would any more get in City’s side? Possibly Sancho. Possibly Bruno. So it’s still some way off being good enough to topple City. That’s ignoring the fact we’re also up against the European champions, though. 2nd and close the gap further and win a cup should be the minimum requirement though.

    Bit of a relief for me really Ed, I grew up fearing utd. Do me a favour and give me a couple of seasons notice when you think you close to challenging again so I can prepare myself πŸ˜€
