Those Rashford wages <img src="https://i.imgur.com/jd3u2I3.png" border="0" alt="" title="Done" class="inlineimg" />
United have a history of paying average players huge wages, so it's hardly surprising. Apparently they upped Wan-Bissaka's salary from 8k to 80k a week. I'm sure with a bit of competent negotiating they could have easily gotten him for about half that.

Giving those wages to ordinary/unproven players potentially fucks with other teams

Actual good players are gonna look around and if guys like Rashford are on 200k, then they'll want to be on double

On the verge of signing Ayoze Perez for £30 million :hmm

Potentially getting £90 million though for Harry Maguire would be sensational :lol

Surely there are way better ways to spend that Maguire money?

Bring in Tielemans on a permanent, and possibly look at some of the young centre backs in the Bundesliga such as Konate or Upamecano to replace Maguire

Atletico confirming Joao Felix but at the same time selling arguably the best midfielder in La Liga to Man City. No idea what to make of them next season, such massive upheaval.

Rodri is basically the Busquets replacement for Spain, definite upgrade for City on Dinho. Pep gonna have the PL title on lockdown for a few more years then.

:griez soon :mark:

Rodri is a cracking signing.

Fair play to woodward and the glazers. They've allowed city to build a dynasty unopposed. Our grandchildren will be city supporters.

Yeah they will have to replace Godin, Luis, Hernandez, Griezmann (which they have done tbf), Rodri and possibly Partey if someone pays the release clause for him.

This is why i think splashing 100M on Felix is not a great idea. The guy has potential but has only played one season in the top flight, and numbers tend to be inflated in Liga NOS.

I think there are plenty of bargains to be had around europe and they could have used that money more appropriately.

For example, Vertonghen has a 25 million release clause during the month of July. He would be a good (even though short term) replacement for Godin.

Sarabia was available for 18 million before PSG snapped him up. There are plenty of young full backs they could take a chance on. Tielemans is on the market, and they could have used the entirety of the Rodri money to try snap up Ndombele who is fantastic.

I just think there were better ways to spend that money than taking a huge gamble on Felix.

They've raked in about 270 million from the release clauses of Rodri, Lucas, and Griezmann. Then another 40 million from selling Gelson and Vietto.

Might even send Diego Costa off to China as well. Probably still plenty more in the bank to spend on the rest of the team.

I'll just say that Partey is one of the most overrated players around, he's got the first touch of a donkey. If they cash in that's no big loss.

They got Hector Herrera on a free, he was excellent at the World Cup but that's literally all i've seen of him. Marcos Llorente for 30 million, was already better than Casemiro, there's your Rodri replacement.

I forgot they signed Llorente to be honest.

I still think they could have used the money smarter. Felix is a huge gamble for me despite the promise he has shown. I can understand they wanted to jump the queue in case he turns into a superstar, but right now i think you can improve the squad as whole with that 100 million or use it on more proven players
