I think another CB is required Maguire needs to move on and get a fresh start and you can’t rely on Varane.
 
Love the way some of our fans think City and Liverpool, well basically everybody else looks at a player on Monday, decides to buy them on Tuesday, then wraps up the deal on Wednesday ...

Part of life living in social media bubbles we just don't see the amount of nonsense being written about those clubs are we only see the Utd stuff in our bubble.

Given that Napoli are flying this season I imagine scouts from all the top sides are keeping a close eye on them but unless these players have contracts that include release clauses or are close to expiring trying to buy anyone off them is going to cost an absolute fortune.
 
Also part of life supporting a club that has drooled all over itself at the prospect of social media interactions, and has at times, dragged transfers out to increase them.

We don't have too, it's the bubble hoppers that do all the damage ....
 
Yep I just do £10 a day on clubcall to make sure I get all the latest factual news.

Just give me an email address and I'll give you daily factual updates for nowt, and save you £3,640 a year in the process.

I KNOW YOU ARE JOKING
 
Few rumours today that we're looking to sign him from Napoli.

He has a release clause in his contract some report it at 50m euro others at 60m euro.

26 year old centre back who's had a great season helping Napoli to win the title in Italy and reach the 1/4 finals in the champions league.

I think with Varane's injuries we do need another centre back.
 
we defo need another CB, we cant go with Varane, Martinez and Lindelof, with Shaw as back up.
 
I think Maguire looks nailed on to leave but if we are brining in another starting quality centre back then I wouldn't rule our either Lindelof or Varane also being moved on.

Selling two of the current centre backs would fund the signing of Kim.

Just leaves you with 3 specialist centre back options and Shaw as your 4th choice.
 
Been strongly linked with him since before the January window so there may be something in it, but then he does play in the same team as Osimhen ....

Wasn't overly impressed with him at the WC though he was apparently carrying an injury, for starters he looks too broad, he's quick enough in stride, but till he gets in stride he looks like a door trying to run, I did actually double-check that he wasn't wearing shoulder-pads, never seen a footballer that wide, it just looks wrong. But he's a very good footballer, just not sure he's right for United.

Would be a very astute signing as Varane won’t be able to play every week, especially not a couple of times a week. So he will be good cover but will probably get more than enough games to be satisfied.
 
I think he will end up as a starter alongside Martinez, Varanes injury record means he can’t really be relied on.

Agree. The Serie A defender of the year will start alongside Licha.
 
Been offered a new deal which would remove the buy-out clause, mmm, maybe there is something in the Axel Wilson Arthur Disasi Mhakinis Belho rumour. At the moment it's all coming from his side, but ....
 
All the noise around this one seems to be coming from the Italian side.

Would be surprised if Napoli can match what we are able to offer in terms of wages but if he's happy there like Koulibaly was he might choose to stay.

I think it's a wise time for these players to leave Napoli with the manager going it's going to be hard for them to move forward next season so could be the right time to leave.

Sounding more and more like a man with a very noisy agent.

Starting to sound more and more like BS now that there's suddenly a load of other clubs listed as being interested.

Why ?
The guy is very good.
It's normal that all big club want him at this price.

Because it's gone from Utd having a deal done to suddenly having 5 or 6 other clubs in the frame along with new contract.

Hasn't really been picked up by any of the Utd journalists in the UK either which makes me think it's not that close to happening. Utd might be interested but they haven't tried to get in and wrap up the deal which is how the deal was being reported.

They can't wrap the deal because of Maguire.
They must be sure he is going before buying Kim. At the moment Maguire want to stay, so ETH need to tell him that he has no future in the team. If Maguire stay there is no need for Kim. I want Kim because i thinks he is better than Varanne and more reliable.
 
Also Kim is not your priority target. ETH want a striker in first and see what fund is left for the others targets. This undecisiveness has alowed many clubs to come in and try to get him

United can't wrap the deal up yet as his lowish release clause only kicks in early July, and then it's only for a few days. You suggesting United pay Napoli a bit over the clause figure(circa £43m) to get the deal done now?

Not at all but the reporting on this deal all seems to be coming from Italy.

If it was all done just waiting for the date for it to go through I doubt we'd see the level of speculation we are still seeing and it would have been picked up by the more reliable journalists in the UK.

Just feels to me like our names been chucked around and it's stuck. Very hard to tell if we're actually in for him or not.

You don't have to believe everything you read - Maguire will be well aware of his situation, and if EtH brings in another CB(Km-J or AN Other) he will be pushed even further down the pecking order and more likely to push for a move.

Well it will because that's where he plays. But it's as likely to be a fan of Juve, AC Milan, Inter et al pushing the story to worry the Napoli fans when they were coming to the crunch time of the season, and hoping he(Km-J)loses focus than be any truth to it.

The UK doesn't do reliable journalists anymore, they are all chancers. Guess some have to be less crap than others though.

United's name has been used/abused since Adam was a lad, at least it means we are still relevant.

Well the links really started moving after Napoli had the title wrapped up.

Not totally true when the match report guys start saying a transfer is happening you know that it is on. The day to day transfer gossip guys aren’t worth paying any attention to.

Correct, which is why you will notice I don't really contribute to these conversations. I get sick of listening to them to be honest. It's all 97% bullshit. I done an exercise so I know that to be fact ;)
