It's not where your from, it's where your at
Murmurings already about the limited nature of Ronald's contribution. The consensus seems to be that he needs to be a static poacher with fuck all else to offer.
What were they expecting though? He's nearly 37. He's not a winger anymore he's just a goal poacher who won't do any defensive duties and neither does Fernades and Pogba which leaves them totally exposed in the middle with McFred. Any half decent team can and will exploit that.

They need a decent defensive midfielder and not spunk their money on a vanity player

What?? Did he expect that deal from us?
Apparently he was willing to take a significant pay cut.

Also our board were not willing to pay a transfer fee for him. Which is fair enough because Juventus wanted him out of the club and off their books.

The rags however, have got such a shrewd business model that they paid the full asking price for the transfer fee and are more than happy to pay Ronnie his full £500,000.00 per week after tax.

But don't worry about them. According to those rags that I come across he's bringing at least that much into the club from his shirt sales alone.

Can't wait to see it happen.

The Only Team in Manchester!
Sancho is over-rated and was over-hyped by the media based on his performances in the one-club German league and a few cameos for England playing against pub teams. He is just another young player with potential a bit like Saka at Arsenal. United have made yet another transfer blunder and the Ronaldo signing is also a mistake. They are trapped in the past.
The hype over Jaded was also in part a dig at Manchester City, as we supposedly let a talented youngster slip through our fingers.
