We didn't let him go. We offered him the biggest contract the club had ever given a youth player (more than he earned at Dortmund). He chose to leave, and we bought Mahrez 12 months later.
Are you saying you know for definite that the club did all they could to keep him. I got the feeling he wanted more oportunities for first team football and we said no? is that incorrect?

I think he's simultaneously over rated and under rated. I don't think he's as good as world class as his stats would suggest. However he's clearly still insanely talented and you don't get the stats he does without being a great player.

We've seen for England that he's not of the level where he can just make shit happen out of nothing in a non-cohesive team (whereas we saw Sterling being somewhat better on that front), but we've also seen that for Dortmund he's absolutely mint.

If he signed for United we'd see those inconsistencies play out and it'd ultimately serve them well. There'd be a few games where there up against a parked bus and frankly Rashford and Greenwood's abilities to whop it and Martial's brilliant dribbling might be more useful than Sancho's skills. But anytime they try and counter attack Sancho will probably put two guys on their arse, play a cracking pass and then follow it up himself with the finish.

Not 100% sure at the moment...

Your first paragraph just tied my heads in knots...

Rashford >> Sancho.

What is the point?

I doubt there's many Utd fans who think their weakness lies with their wide forwards. Huge waste of money.
The last proper RW we had was Nani. It’s been a neglected position for years.

Unfortunately it's looking more and more likely he's United bound, but one positive we can take from it is that our sell on clause will cover most of what we paid for Torres.

Sancho is clearly the better player as it stands, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Torres putting up similar numbers in City's side compared to Sancho in United's.

You’re always very negative towards City and very defensive towards United. Why is that?

And on your point, Liverpool and City had barely anything to play for after the break because the title was basically already won and City were always going to finish second. United had to win most of their games and PiGMOL could barely afford to slip up.
Edited for accuracy.

Why they taking another loan out to buy him? There revenue is going to take a massive drop there accounts are out soon and won’t look pretty but yeah let’s get another 140m loan so we can buy a player two faced scum bags.
