MUFC found it difficult to sort that out & they got £ to burn & had more time than we do now.
How do you know this though? You're just assuming that's what happened. For all we know we could have been in discussions for a weeks...

The rumblings have been that he just didn't want to go there I'm not saying your wrong but I think to be going this late in the window for Dybala we must feel we can do something and JJ has +ived it as best we could get

But he didn’t fancy United so went over the top with wages
I’m hoping he fancies us and the champions league and playing for Poch, so will hopefully be more reasonable

Dybala deal near impossible to do due to his image rights. That’s a separate £15m payment in itself. He signed a contract with a images rights company, signed up to Puma via them then fucked them both off & signed for Adidas. It’s been a ongoing issue with him & them for a bit now.

They spoke a fair bit about it today on Totally football show European pod.
Looking at the fee quoted by Sky at 64,4 mill.pounds, it seems to be just about 15 mill. pounds less than the 80 mill fee that was mentioned for him last week. Clever Daniel?
My point is it would cover the naming rights fee...

Okay, what the actual fuck is going on?!

Can anyone summarize? (I'm probably not the only one that missed this complete meltdown)
We’ve had a massive bid from an anonymous Chinese club for GKN. Before we sell, we’re splurging the money on his replacements which includes half the Argentine national squad, a pair of twins and Bruno Mars. Did I miss anything?

I'm usually positive as they come but I don't believe we'll get Dybala or Coutinho for a second. The former I'd like but comes with too many strings; the latter - well Eriksen was better than him when he was at Liverpool and that's when he was good. And a "loan"? Maybe Poch can bring his best back...

Very happy with the Bruno medical ITK and if we can one of Lo Celso and these other two, that would be a decent window even at the cost of Eriksen.

It's RB that needs cover now if its true Aurier is going.

Just listen to today’s pod & James Horncastle breaks it down why Utd, or any other prospective buyer, will find it hard to conclude the deal. Add to that the strong desire of the player to remain at Juve. As I said not a ‘cut & dry’ transfer to do....

Loving all these links. Now is the time to go all in no doubt about it. Similar to that lot down the road really. If we can be creative with deals like Coutinho and get good instalment deals like Herc suggests then we could still have a huge window.

City, Liverpool and Chelsea very quiet, as are a lot of the other big boys. Poch wanting a squad refresh or his future could be in doubt. It all adds up. The question is can Levy deliver?

Bring in some real quality now and we could be competing on all fronts going forward. Better to go for it now and risk some quiet windows after (see Liverpool this summer) than gamble by doing the bare minimum and potentially lose Poch and key players if it goes wrong.

genuinely intrigued to see whats going to happen over the next few days, the fee agreed for dybala seems significantly lower than what was touted that united agreed not that long ago maybe daniels negotiated to cover the image rights or agent fees who knows. it would be a massive statement if we were to bring him in and show we can mix it with the big money boys in the league, eriksen is most likely going to leave id offer him to juve as part of the deal if im honest then it covers the fees for dybala that are being spoken about.

Dybala wants to come. It is about our team getting round the financial hurdles. He would be on par with H for salary, with same lucrative bonuses. Other stuff can’t print. Only believe it if we close it!

Oh, Fredo. Rookie error
Just think, if we no one moves tomorrow, are we really going to do 2 of PD, PC, GLC and BF while also adding Sess and possibly selling Eriksen in less than a day? So that's where I'm coming from.

Must encouraging thing about all this noise is that it feels almost impossible to finish the window poorly now, even if it’s not the absolute most exciting names being linked.
