    Maguire would not have improved our chances in the Champions league in my opinion, he'd be out of his depth at that level.

    I agree Stones can sometimes be outclassed by top quality strikers which is why, if we buy someone, it needs to be a significant improvement on what we have rather than Maguire who is a downgrade on our current options.

    Worth bearing in mind that the sources claiming we were interested in him are by no means reliable. What we do know is that khaldoon openly and publicly laughed at the fee paid for vvd, so it's hard to see him being interested similar for maguire.

    £80m....

    Of course this will be reported as shrewd purchase and NOT inflating the market price like Lukaku, Pogba and the wages for Sanchez.

    They now have 3 of the only 5 £70m above players in the league. Well done.

    Edit: forgot about Morata.

    Funny how when it's United it's £60m + £20m. Nearly every transfer has add ons, yet only the full sum is normally reported. Next year they will have only paid £40m for him with £5m in add ons and in 5 years time they'll be calling him an academy graduate.

    And people will say it time and time again that we don’t have a free foreign space in the squad. Otamendi has a better injury record and is more physical so suits what we need so no chance we even replace otamendi with him.

    Can’t help but feel a bit disappointed that we have missed out on maguire and in the process a rival has been strengthened. Worry about playing the physical sides next season.

    Because we have no room in our squad for foreign players unless we sell.

    Red ST holder I know thinks he’s poor. He’ll be gutted they’re signing him.

    I await the masses of articles on how Utd are inflating the market & ruining football
