He's on £65k per week apparently, can't see Jose selling him to us regardless.
Totally agree, I think he would thrive under Poch but I would be stunned if Utd would sell to us.

I also expect they will be after mental money for him

If he scores one more goal for them United have to pay Monaco another €10m. He's either in their long term plans or they'll want him out quick.

As if. Absolutely no chance. Actually think he'd be great for us but he'll have bigger offers if he leaves Utd. Missed the boat on this one methinks

He would be brilliant for us but can't see United selling to us.

I would like us to be looking at these players below.

Iheanacho
Martial
Mahrez
Isco
Lacazette
Sessegnon

He's a decent player, so far no more than that. That lot would only deal with us if we were getting utterly screwed so I'd advise anyone at the club not to start calling Mourhino. More likely if Zlatan and Rooney leave they'll want to keep him.

There was an interest from him to join us in 2015. The stumbling block was the fee that could not be agreed (or more to the point Levi could not get his way). Player power is paramount and alas as we have discovered in the past along with many other teams with players going on strike.

If he wanted away then he would have the upper hand, and although Man U are a big team, Tottenham are now an attractive proposition, probably at this moment in time showing far more potential than most teams around us.

Also Man Utd are close to having to fork out an extra +/- £25m as per the terms of his transfer which is something they need to take into account if they are unsure about keeping him.

The days on teams screwing us are imho behind us, and the draw of joining a young team potentially on the verge of something special is definitely growing.

What I am trying to say in a very roundabout way is that I don't think this is as whimsical as some say.
