    Depends on how much you are willing to pay for a player of that persons ability.

    Basically I doubt you will be paying many players over 200k but Chelsea wouldn't go for a player that warrants 200k+ straight away, if we did we will probably give that player 200k though.

    It's like Barcelona and Real Madrid vying for a player. Real have more money but the amount they are going to pay isn't going to be much more than Barcelona would pay them if at all, so you're left with other factors to consider(strength of team, manager, location etc)

    If a job offers you 200k a week and another job offers you 210k a week I don't think the higher offer will automatically get you that person essentially.
    Agree, but United are stronger financially then Chelsea and general pulling power is stronger. Also, we have a reputation for paying huge wages so whereas you would hesitate, so we'd just pay them that even though they may not be worth it.

    How have I not heard about this guy until now. Is he good and is it worth paying £30mil for him. I don't want MU to make the same mistake as last year of buying loads of BS players.

    Location is probably the primary factor behind moves, and is then swayed by other secondary factors (which can become primary if played out enough). Why would a Spanish player want to move to Manchester ahead of London? It's ****, to put it frankly. Football is a job to them.

    Money is a secondary factor, and as I said only can become primary if there's a large discrepancy between the two.£20-30k won't sway the vast majority of players, if you're talking £50,000+ then fair enough (but it means we're constantly inflating players values).

    London is the better of the two, but Manchester is still a great place to live. It isn't somewhere like Leeds where the gap between the two is huge.
    Manchester's got levels too.

    Good to see the business underway early. Ibrahimovic should hopefully be confirmed in July as it seems him and his agent are waiting for their PSG deal to officially expire to get a loyalty bonus. In an ideal world you'd sign a defender with experience but they are hard to come by and available, so Bailly seems to be a player with the potential and will have a coach in Mourinho to beat the defensive, tactical improvement in him. I don't envisage Pogba re-joining, he's only going to Madrid or Barcelona - don't think he fancies a return to the PL if he knows he can go to one of them and if he has a lively Euro Championships could forsee Zidane taking him to the Bernabeu with Kroos sold to Man City.

    Don't know what it is exactly but I know they definitely need to free their wage bill immediately.

    Let's flip this, why would Chelsea be more attractive?
    - owner who wants to win (Abramovich vs. Glazers)
    - London
    - currently have a better squad
    - missing CL likely to be a one off season compared to Man Utd who have missed 2 out of the last 3

    Nobody will ever come out and say it will they? But, Ronaldinho, Hazard, Cesc all come to mind.
