But yeah, signing players who are rejects from elsewhere isn't ideal either.

Reeks of woodward tbh, but I don't see him moving anyway.

If we sign players from teams who are worse than us then they're shite, if we sign players from teams who're better than us then they're rejects.

You've actually swallowed that whole article as the truth, haven't you?

If he leaves it's because they don't want him. If you're daft enough to think he can't wait to give up winning Champions Leagues and league titles to play with bogbrush and phil jones then more fool you.

So? It's not like they don't make mistakes. They didn't want Robben.

I know the Di Maria thing has stung a bit, but surely Bale would arrive at United determined to be the best in the league.

I'm sure we'd all have Bale here tomorrow if we could.

Unfortunately i'm sure we're all probably aware that this story is 99% bullshit.

Haven't actually read the story tbf.

I actually get the concerns about fitness with him, but I just think these days we hemorrhage money and it barely matters. Rooney has been picking up circa 200,000 per week this season while being sat on his arse plenty of the time. Not to mention Basti.

Don't think the club are arsed these days. Bale would be the type of glamour signing that will appeal to them. It's not that much of a risk.

Basically it's unfounded daily mail crap. Typical of the flimsy tenuous crap you get served up from May until September. Basically, and this literally all it f***ing says, is that United will be 'encouraged' to make a bid on him if he doesn't start the Champions league final. As if our entire summer transfer strategy would come down to whether he starts one game or not. I mean f***ing hell it's beyond stupid. A player like Bale would require the best part of 70-80m setting aside to sign him, as if we'd just bid on him like that on a f***ing whim and it wouldn't effect our entire summer budget.

They'll have to drag him away from Real Madrid and if he does happen to decide to leave as unlikely as that is, there will be an almighty stampede to get him from Europe's top clubs.

As a player I rate him really highly but as a person i can't stand the c***. He's a f***ing smug prick who seemed to get some kick out of f***ing United off down the years.

Mourinho wants a winger. Dembele was first choice. He's probably not gettable this summer so that's why Perisic is now on the radar. The Bale story is probably Mou giving it a go before he has to settle for Perisic.

So that would make him a reject, as I said earlier. The merits or otherwise of signing a player in that context are a different matter.

I'm not red tinted enough to say 'he had his chance' but we'd all prefer a player who wants to play for United over one who's only there because his first choice binned him off, surely?

As I also said though, the fitness issues would concern me most and they would likely worsen with age.

100% woodward IMO, as it is every summer leaking the same shit to the press

One of them also said De Gea was going & United are trying to sign Keane, Lindelof, Griezmann, Fabinho and another forward/winger (Rodriguez or Perisic). Plus the talk is that Mou wants to sign either Oblak or that Milan kid if De Gea goes.

Who knows. We need goals plus a beast in centre mid. Anything on top of that will be a bonus. I reckon Michael Keane is a done deal. Griezmann is 100% done imo.

yeah that makes sense mate; link us with Messi and sign Obertan etc.
