Tuanzebe and Greenwood will probably start vs Chelsea. Not two new signings, but two new players in the first team rather than the same old faces.

Ed Woodward will not fly out to China for the last leg of Manchester United's pre-season tour as the club continues to work on two transfers.

Woodward has been present on every pre-season tour since he assumed the executive vice-chairman role in 2013 but will not travel to Shanghai, where United are preparing to play Tottenham on Thursday. United managing director Richard Arnold was in Singapore and has flown onto China.
MEN story.

Chief executive in "actually doing his fucking job" shocker

If it's true maybe the penny has dropped

Not that the glazers would ever let a penny drop in their presence

Didn't he do this a couple of years ago to attend urgent transfer business but we ended up with no one?

The problem with this bellend is he's from the Kenyon school of negotiations. Finds out how much the selling club wants, comes back with a low ball offer, rejected never to return again.

Lets all be honest, whether he stayed behind or not, he's doing fuck all to get any deals over the line. That said he must be one of the thickest skinned CEOs around atm. The amount of abuse he's taken in print, on TV and on radio since the season ended has been impressive. About time too.

Simon Stone's a big fan though.

Yeah, but he’d be a shit businessman if he asked the price and just paid it, wouldn’t he? Only the oil clubs and the behemoths that are Madrid do that. Even Barca pull shenanigans and they’re wedged. And Madrid are baulking at the fee for Pogba..

True enough. But there's negotiating and then there's what United seem to do. How long does it really take to get a deal done? There's also a whiff of deja vu coming out re some of the linked players. Rodgers saying one bid has come in at the start of July for Maguire then nothing (despite all the shite in the press Inter admitted only one very low bid was ever received from United for Perisic). Fernandes, linked all Summer. Lisbon's president admits player would like to move to PL but as it stands no bid. Now we've got Lille President saying Pepe deal nearly done, no mention of club, United bid (and rejected). Now if true did they think the deal was nearly done then they received the fax/offer?

It's not quite as bad as last Summer, but it's pretty close. At least the two signed look alright and as yet we've not signed a 35 year old GK.

I'm also fucking fed up of hearing 'big clubs' moan about fees when they're happy to trouser whatever they can get from sponsorship deals, TV deals and the rest. The landscape isn't what it was and selling clubs with good players that big clubs want can't be bullied anymore.
