  1. 9. Álvaro Morata

    To be honest, he’s on his way with his current goal drought.
  2. Alexis Sanchez

    Well, if it really is that much then, congrats United.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    Genuine question, if he leaves, will you still support/follow CFC?
  4. Andy Carroll

    Come on Tomo. Liverpool are definitely showing more ambition than us. Barkley and Ox draw some similarities, but they’re both good transfers. Keita is a top player and as good as Rüdiger has been, Salah has been on another level or two. The point is, do you really think the board are capable of reinvesting the money as well as LFC are right now? When we’re targetting dross like Carroll, have signed average players like Zappacosta or Drinkwater or even Bakayoko who has a lot to prove? This is the problem. The club’s been signing dross for ages now. What the hell is going on?
  5. Emerson Palmieri

    Would be interesting at least. Not sure he’d be the same player after that ACL injury he’s coming off. We love signing injured players?
  6. Andy Carroll

    He’s being sarcastic.
  7. Andy Carroll

    If we must go for a “cheap” English targetman can’t we even go for Chelsea fan Charlie Austin instead? Jesus.
  8. Andy Carroll

    Jesus Christ it’s actually happening. Fucking Hollywood FC.
  9. Andy Carroll

    Add Zappa to that, £135m.
  10. Alexis Sanchez

    I’m just going off media reports tbh for the wages stuff. Logically speaking, we’d have to start offering these guys those sort of wages anyway if we wanted to keep them - they’re world class players. My point is that we should be looking at Sanchez and that the cost is worth it. I’m not saying the club’s interest is real either, in fact I said the very opposite a few pages ago: the main reporters reporting this are Utd/Manchester based reporters, and it’s quite clear that Utd are just looking for a narrative to embarrass us with again. I’m trying to argue against the notion that it won’t be financially worth it - it’s more than likely the same stance the club is taking over this, hence why we aren’t really looking at Sanchez. I just think we should be.
  11. Alexis Sanchez

    We are offering to make Courtois the best paid GK in the world and Hazard is already being offered a 300k contract, so that’s just a moot point imo. Has nothing to do with Sanchez. If we want to keep Hazard and Courtois we’re going to have to pay up anyway. Also:
  12. Alexis Sanchez

    Yep. This is spot on. People just look at the money and don’t want to realise that there are way more pros than cons.
  13. Alexis Sanchez

    He was gonna join City for 300k which is what we’re offering Hazard. Sanchez is pretty much on his level. I would add that 50k because we’re struggling with goals in this side big time. We won’t sign big players at all with that attitude - it won’t be long before having a top player on 300k is the norm. Look at the overall financial package - about a £100m over the length of his contract - that’s fine. If Sanchez had years left on his contract we’d be paying that or more anyway. Mahrez is great, not better than Sanchez imo. Besides, only a year or two younger. Let’s say we sign him for the £60m they want (Puel is now saying he’d be worth a £100m next season) and give him wages at 175k pw over a 3 and a half year contract like Sanchez would probably get. That’s about £90m for his whole contract - is Sanchez worth that extra £10-15m? Absolutely I think.
  14. Alexis Sanchez

    Logically speaking if we’re getting rid of Batshuayi, Sanchez is not only a perfect foil to play as a back up CF but would also be perfect in the 343. Makes too much sense. Mostly Utd reporters reporting it. It’s not happening guys, don’t get your hopes up. United are just trying to embarrass Chelsea again and Roman won’t stand in the way of it like he used. Sky are fanning the flames for clicks. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
  15. Alexis Sanchez

    This “Chelsea make late bid” stinks of Utd trying to sell the narrative that they beat us to a signing again. Look how at how it comes from a Manchester based journalist. I wouldn’t get my hopes up at all.
