I love how Utd fans are raging at Woodward with a ' I can't imagine how OGS must be feeling watching all of this'.

It hasnt dawned on any of them, for even a second, that one of the main reasons the likes of Sancho and Dembele are not pushing for a move to OT is most likely because of OGS.

He's teflon. Long may it continue.

Harry Redknapp on SSN asked about United's transfer window.

"Well they've certainly signed some players"

What an absolute shambles of a window from them

All that 'Sancho is in a WhatsApp group with Rashford and they play Modern Warfare online together' false hope.

My gut tells me that Sancho doesnt want to go there.

Um didn't we pay £35m for Ox?

Ben White sounds worth it if he can improve their defence and they make a couple of decent midfield signings.

They'll have Saka back too.

Leeds had 25 mil turned down for him last summer, was always looking at 40 plus for him with a years worth of prem experience. Think we might have been interested if he had played CB last season rather midfield.

Though if they send 100m to Villa and 100m + to Spurs, then there may be a trickle down effect where those clubs, or clubs those clubs buy from, having the cash to buy some of those we wish to offload, and giving us a bit more spending power to strengthen.

So £200m plus on 2 players?

You've got to wonder how do Pep and the Man City scouting department manage to locate these top class players?

You have to laugh at the sheer denial.

I’d love to see him back his words up by going even just 1 season without spending.
Should be more than achievable given the squad he already has.

Maybe it would have been better if they’d won the CL? Football is eating itself alive.

Until some kind of spending regulations come in we can look forward to watching Coty dominate.

The problem is that, as illustrated last season, whilst a decent amount of teams can compete with City in a one of game. Over a season when they can rotate so effectively they end up winning a ridiculously high percentage of their games.

It is quite frankly amazing that we went toe to toe with them for 2 years.

Good job they're not guilty of any financial irregularities, or people might question were all this money comes from, given the lack of/low crowds, lack of player sales...

Grealish is a quality player no doubts, 100m is way too much though. Kane though he probably is worth the 100m plus in todays market and would score a shit load for them. Ffs the squad they have already, adding Kane and Grealish to an already ridiculously talented squad and it would be hard not to see them cruise the title again.

Grealish is like Lallana - £100m is madness

yeah big time. I know Villas form fell away when Grealish got injured, but the hype for him is unbelievable. I nearly hope they do sign him for big cash.

With Kane, i get it that he is a good striker. And to be honest, i didn't think he was as good as he was until I saw him live. But I don't think I would like LFC to sign him. He wouldn't fit in with the way we play. I don't think he would fit in with the way City play either to be honest. His build up play has improved over the last year or so - but I don't think he is an aguero replacement to be honest
