Are we buying anything this year?

  1. The same thing happened last year, United bought Valencia, Owen and Obertan early in the transfer window. After that we were linked with players like Villa, Silva, Benzema, Luis Fabiano and many others I dont even remember any more. He said then: "The maket is not right, we arent going to buy players this summer anymore."

    I thought ok, he will suprise us with some world class player, that will give us the edge after selling Ronaldo, we all thought that, even the papers they were linking us wits some players even after Fergie said that. But nothing happened, we didnt buy a world class player, and we lost the battle in the Premiership and Champions League because Rooney got injured for couple of games and there was nobody to step up.

    So this year the same thing is about to happen, we buy Hernandez and Smalling early and Fergie says again the market is not right after a bunch of players stating that they would love to play for United like Luis Suarez, Mesut Ozill, Silva, Luis Fabiano, Alexis Sanchez... Ferguson added: 'We've looked at a few options. We did consider David Villa but he was always going to Barcelona. I just don't believe there is value out there at the moment. I'm very happy with the strength of our squad as it is. After this i am afraid that last years transfer scenario will repeat... (hope not)

    And now the papers are linking us with Sneijder for 25 mill, and they say it is serious. After winning CL, Serie A, and coppa Italia the best player for Inter MIlan for 25 mill?? And to add to this, his coach in Inter is Rafa...

    Schweini
    Tamas Hajnal
    Jermaine Jones
    Daniel Jensen
    Misimovic
    Frings
    Barnetta

    I don't remember us having any German players. We've had a few Youth/Reserve Germans, can't think of any others...

    If someone paid more than £20m for Ozil, it would be ridiculous. I think he's been overrated probably due to a lack of quality at this year's World Cup.

    Other options? Definitely need someone like Sneijder. Who can score and create.

    I like Schweinsteiger but I think we need someone who will score and create goals regularly. Schweinsteiger doesn't score enough in my opinion.

    Just heard Hargo isn't going on US tour and won't be fit for new season. So we need a DM now too. Can't keep relying on him. Waste of money, waste of time.

    I didn't like him as a player before WC 2006 infact I hated him before then, and then after WC 06 I wasn't too impressed.

    "There no value in the transfer market" when did it ever stop Sir Alex before? He's payed too much for numerous player, Berbatov being a prime example. There is no money and won't be until we sell players. There are players to sell but no one will pay good money for our rejects. It's a vicious circle "catch 22" and teams will catch up and pass us in the near future.

    I think Berbatov is one of the reasons that Fergie won't pay over the odds anymore.

    Another post in the papers today, that SAF turned to Mesut Ozill for 25 m. He had 1 year left on his contract and i think 25 mil are way to much!!! 15-20 is resonable

    according to FreddieBoswell on twitter, thirty clubs are interested in Ozil with Barca favourites to sign him.

    How about Stephen Ireland? We could get him on the cheap.

    Ireland may be a good signing reinforcement. Cheap, young, skilfull and definitely he'd come to United shity trying to prove something to Shity.
    Moreover, He's a kinda problematic. He's not the kind of player who accepts well the reserve role(that's why he wants to leave shity). And i don't think he'd figure in first team so soon.
    Moreover, There's that fateful story that he escaped to a hotel with his girlfriend and said that her grandmother had died. haha

    Fergie's denied making bids for Ozil and Sneijder. So we're back to square one really.

    Ozil lacks something and I can't think what, maybe he could learn whatever it is with us. I wouldn't be against signing him, can we match other offers though.

    He's young (something SAF likes now), there's potentially a greater sell on value, Werder Bremen won't be asking ridiculous money (I think). If he can spend £10m or so for Smalling and Hernandez who haven't done anything yet, then i'm sure £20m or so is available for someone who was touted as one of the best players at the World Cup.
