    [Fernando Burgos] Manchester United are offering Casemiro a 5 year contract and to double his wage to 10M after tax
    We're apparently going to pay a fee of €70m to secure him. Madrid would be mad to refuse that. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Let's just take a look at players we've signed at the back end of their careers (over 27) going back to 2010:
    Owen - Done before arrival at 29. RVP - Done in 6 months at 29. Mata - Never seen his Chelsea form. Done in 2 years at 27 lmao. Jesus christ he wasn't even old enough to qualify. He makes the list for declining hilariously early.  Falcao - LOL. Victor Valdes - . Forgot he played here. Done before arrival at 32. Schweinsteiger - Done before arrival at 30. Sergio Romero - Bless. Mkhitaryan - Done in 12 months at 28.  Zlatan - Great but done in 9 months due to cruciate injury at 35. Matic - Done in 6 months at 28. Alexis - Done before arrival at 29. Odion Ighalo - Never had it. Cavani - Decent the 20% of the games he was fit for at 34.  Alex Telles - Done on arrival at 27. Maybe never had it.  Raphael Varane - Never fit at 28 Cristiano Ronaldo - Scored goals but is an albatross for the club at 37.  Impossible to see how this could go wrong.

    On paper it's as good an upgrade you can buy but you just know he'll come here and lounge it up.
    As much shit as McFred have justifiably received they've never played with a consistent DM. I imagine it brings Donny and Eriksen into play as CM's too with less pressure defensively. 
    Still think we need another option in there but this is obviously the De Jong budget being put to use. Linked with Dest and we'll probably sign a keeper.

    This more or less confirms we've wasted an entire summer chasing de Jong who never had any intention of joining. Some contacts at this club.

    There's still a chance that he stays. But it would be difficult to turn down that type of money.
    He'd be another ally for Ronaldo.
    On paper, we get an elite DM. But I'm always wary with these high profile signings.

    Have seen links for the above all in the last 24 hours. By reputable sources as well. I’m sure there’s some embellishment but I have no doubt we are at this stage where we’ve found we have money that was reserved for FDJ and have no plan to use it.
    The links to Antony starting up again. Talk of a “massive bid” - We’re gonna spend €80m on a guy who’s less accomplished than Memphis was when we signed him because the coach loves him. That coach could be gone in a few months time.

    I would take any of the 3 Chelsea players we've been linked with as well, they'd improve us instantly.
    My concern is mainly around the fact that they aren't anywhere near enough. I'd say we need a LW, but we really need a ST and DM/CM. Our need for a RB is probably equally important as our need for a LW as well, so unless we were to improve these areas as well I doubt they'll be able to make much of an impact.

    I'd love it if he walks. Would bring unprecedented scrutiny onto the Glazers and board.
    It was always a terrible fit if we weren't going to take up Ralf's advice and overhaul the squad. No amount of coaching genius can get De Gea or McFred playing Cruyff-ball. I really doubt he done his due diligence before taking the job - I know top managers always back themselves but it was plainly obvious that he would inherit a shitshow. If they weren't going to back him to the tune of £200-300m then it was always going to be a disaster.
    He was the hottest coach in Europe and probably could have waited for Pep to step down and take the City job. His reputation will go up in flames here. The media already have their claws out.

    I actually think it's possible.
    Both club and the player may want to cash in at this point. They're stacked in midfield and are going to be moving on soon anyway. He will obviously get huge wages, the reported fee is around €50m. Similar situation to Varane except he's even older. They're a well run club that plan ahead - United are a shambles that are desperate. 
    He will flop.
    Now this is a signing that would make sense. He'd be starting in a few weeks.

    I'd reiterate what everyone else is saying. No idea how good he'll be and whether he's ready to play first-team football for us regularly, but considering how poor we are in midfield I'd much rather we kept him and let him have a run in the team to see what he can do, rather than go with the players we know aren't up to it.
    If we are desperate for funds there aren't many players who would command a fee, but selling Garner for £15m doesn't give us much to play with either.
