    He's asked numerous times and said it public ally, reckon he must be close with Rio to get that. Will be interesting to see, long ball over the defence! haha

    Feeling the same way, all the news of him coming died out and now its reemerged, plus looking at Xavi form in the confed cup, must've affected his and Barca's position on the transfer, he's most likely using us just to strengthen his position at Barca.

    If Thiago would come do you think we'd try and play possession football, with Thiago being our Xavi, Carrick as our Busquets and Kagawa as our Iniesta.
    Bar thiago,, carrick and kagawa both played or currently play counter attacking football at their current or previous clubs. If xabi alonso can adapt to possession football at spain and counter attacking football at liverpool and madrid I don't see the point of changing the style of football over one player. RVP handled a possession style fine and now handles a counter attacking game at united fine

    Reports about Vidic extending his contract for another year, so really don't think we need or should buy a CB this summer. Ferdinand doesn't get injured alot as long as he's managed correctly which we'll continue to do. Vidic is fully fit now and there's no reason why he can't have a good season. Then we have Smalling, Evans and Jones who really had some fine peformances at CB towards the end of last year. Hope we don't get Garay, especially for the fee quoted. Not sure Baines is needed either. I'd like another CM to go with Thiago i think, someone box to box to provide energy ala Marchisio
    Is Garay necessary though? We have Smalling, Jones, Evans, Rio and Vidic. I think we'll sign a CB next season when both Rio and Vidic are likely to leave but not this season. Priority is the central midfield.

    Not much progress today regarding the Thiago transfer other than the guardian saying United have a 'good chance' of getting him. I think its probably gonna be a little quiet in the coming days.

    On another note, if United do end up getting Thiago who else would you like them to add? And who do you think Moyes will actually buy?

    I would like them to get a defender presumbly CB since United have had so many injuries on that font and plus Vidic and Ferdinand aren't getting any younger. Although I think we'll get Baines which might happen during the end of the transfer window since Moyes said yesterday some of the transfers will most likely happen late, IMO I think he was specifically talking about Baines when he said that.

    And maybe another winger since last season they were either out of form or injured, and Zaha will need time to adapt to the Premier League. Although I don't think Moyes will buy any wingers cause he'll most likely give the current wingers a chance to prove themselves.
    It's the weekend haha, you don't get much activity on the weekend. I think Thiago will happen next week. I agree with you in terms of bringing in another winger; Young, Valencia and Nani are not up to it.

    I think its just determining the word 'official'.

    We could be negotiating the deal that would buy Thiago and avoid all the annoying tax confusion, but until we settle on a deal and actually officially hand it over, it is isn't really 'official'. Maybe its like if you imagine like bargaining with your friend with him saying you can buy his car for £1000, but until you go hoime and get the money, you arent officially buying it.

    I'm sure Kagawa had a 'no official bid' days before he was a Manchester United player
    It's also a buy-out clause so we don't make a bid/offer but instead we either pay his buy-out clause which buys out his contract or we don't. Barca are also playing media games as per; they'll deny everything publicly until a deal is completed

    Henriquez brace for Chile U20s, a great turn and finish.. And a headed goal from a sick pass fairly similar to Carrick + Hernandez v Chelsea.

    Plus Varela gaining mass plaudits for his performance.. Seems like the players representing us are doing well and Varela is going great through so still more to see

    Is Henriquez a beast in the air or something? Whenever I see him scoring, it's often an header. I'm really excited by him to be honest.

    I'd forgotten about the latter tbh. He has to move on permanently now - can't imagine he wants to go out on loan. All of his loan spells failed miserably, not of his own making down to managerial changes and injuries but would have been intrigued had he been allowed to flourish in the same way Welbeck did at Sunderland.

    Bebe, just shove him in the reserves or loan him out.

    Fabio, having been pictured with his brother Rafael cruising to training in the company sponsored Chevrolet, is back also.

    Aye. It's Butt.

    Took me a while! Haven't seen him as a baldy yet. Scholes looks very apprehensive about whatever is happening there though! :lol:

    Think it was clearly done on purpose. Still respect fergie for building a squad around these guys, wished he did it again before retiring though, would be great if we had an english bayern/barca atm but the closest we have to that is liverpool :lol:

    Journalists and player (Vidic) alike have commented on his build whilst he's been back at pre-season, atleast thats a fairly good sign if he stays. Saying that, the guys strength.. is strength.. so you have to wonder what balance he tries to keep to.
