He’s always said he wanted to play for 1 of his dad’s clubs in England and he also signed for Dortmund in January.
Salzburg weren’t in the CL then though.

I‘d love for us to get him, I’m just trying to work out why a release clause would activate in January.

There is no chance we will get involved in the Haaland transfer.

It just does not work financially and would end up screwing us over.

The fees are going to be ridiculous (agents, Alfie, signing and wages).

The last deal was all set up to ensure this deal delivered maximum profitability.

Rumours are they want 800K a week. Our highest earner is on 400K.

The guy will go Real or PSG where they already have a player on that kind of money Mbappe, Messi.

Can’t even see United going for it at that amount.

Understand how you feel buddy , to me keeping Laporte and Bernado aswell as signing grealish will be an improvement from last year !

mate we didn’t chase Kane all summer ! We put a cheeky 100m bid which was actually 80mill plus bonuses , it was never going to get accepted, the club knew this ! We knew all summer he wasn’t coming and know in January we will have a better deal ! Feel a lot need to lay off social media / sky sports ! 500k for a 36 year old or 160 mill for Kane like they wanted , we are better than that ! We’re getting the best of the best In January and he’s a city fan !
WUM.

Tolm posted yesterday or day before that he got wind we was working on something but I don't see the benefit of signing haaland in January if we're still in Europe.
He'll be cup tied for the knockout rounds, that is unless we're planning to be out of Europe by then.
I want to believe it but I'm calling bullshit on it. I've asked @93.20blue for a bit more meat on the bone but got no comebacks so it's a none starter for me.
Sounds a fantastic idea but in reality nah!
You can register 3 new players at the end of the January window and it doesn’t matter if they have played for someone else as of about 3 years ago.

I'm not 100% certain but I don't think that rule applies anymore.

Manchester City
let's analyze @93.20blue's history.

Rodri - Said done on july 1 or 2nd - deal was announced on the 3rd - accurate.
Koulibaly (2019) - Said city are not interested.
Cancelo - At first, said won't happen UNLESS city sell danilo first - which was the case.
Cancelo 2 - On august 2nd, said cancelo was having his medical on august 6th. Cancelo was announced august 7th. accurate.
Angelino - Said on july 3rd that he's currently at the etihad signing the contract. he was announced july 3rd. accurate.
Sane (2019) - Said he was staying. He did in fact stay that season, though he was injured in the community shield 3 days before that post. Accurate
Laporte injury (2019) - Said he was out for 4 to 5 months. He ended up being out for 4 months. accurate.
Sancho (2020) - Said he's off to chelsea. inaccurate, but not city related.
United manager - Said they are getting allegri. Still have a PE teacher, so inaccurate - but again, not city related.
Skriniar & Ake - Said a deal in place for both. got one right, one wrong.
Aouar & Almada - Said two players whose names start with A will be joining in the summer, after prodding it was clear he meant Almada and Aouar. didn't happen. Inaccurate (though other outlets announced almada was done a while later - I think it didn't end up happening for different reasons)
Pep & CAS court - Said pep will sign a new contract after we'll win the upcoming cas court. Semi accurate - we won the cas court and pep renewed - but he renewed in november.
Dias & Koulibaly - Said on JUNE 24th (!!!) that city are going to spend big on a CB but he thinks dias is first choice. massively and impressively accurate as no one even mentioned dias at this point.
Ake & torres - Said on july 27th that they will both sign next week - and they both did. accurate.
Koulibaly 2 - Said on july 27th napoli are playing hardball and he expects us to go for someone else. accurate.
Aouar - Said on july 27th he was informed this is done but is being kept quiet. Inaccurate.
Harry kane - Said in summer of 2020 that we're working on a deal for kane. Several journalists in the year since have confirmed we were working on kane but diverted our attention to messi, so I denote this as accurate.
Koulibaly 3 - Said he was informed koulibaly was done, but is being delayed because of messi. inaccurate
Kounde - Says the club moved away from koulibaly and expects the kounde deal to happen, otamendi to be gone. inaccurate with regards to kounde, but didn't say it was done.
Grealish - "Keep your eye on grealish" in september 2020. who knows if we were actually in for him back then! but i will still denote this as accurate :)
Grealish 2 - Says fee agreed at 82m + add ons in july 16th. Perhaps that was the case, we won't know. i'll denote this as somewhat accurate.
Kane - Said kane deal was off on august 23rd. Kane confirms he was staying on august 25th. Accurate.
Ronaldo - Said on friday morning united are hijacking the deal. Extremely and impressively accurate.

That's all I got. To me, this seems very accurate overall, with a few blips that can mostly be attributed to the everchanging nature of football transfers, that can be on and off in the blink of an eye. I see no reason to doubt him for the most part.
