    Poor from the BBC if true. You generally expect BBC Sport to hold fire on rumours outside the Gossip Column or at least say "reported to" rather than the statement they have made on this.

    Well our front office and management has been pretty ****ing bad since Rosell joined :laugh:
    You dont remember the Laporta years then?

    It was Tito's fault Thiago left, not Rossell

    He's so humble about his life, it very admirable. Its the end of part 2 that really give me hope he'll come home one day.

    I realise the importance of background check that Man utd do. In general, People like Hernandez etc really make the difference to winning or loosing by their attitude/personality.

    As for Europe, we could still win the CL without any summer signings (our team now is better than the one Chelsea/Inter had when they won it). I'm not saying we would be the favourites to win the CL, far from it, but it's certainly possible. I think there are only 4 teams who are certainly better than us; the two German clubs and the two Spanish.
    You don't think City and Chelsea are stronger than us? Nor PSG or Juventus? I know you said certainly, and I wouldn't call it certain, but I think these four could probably beat us. We certainly struggled versus the English two at the end of the season.

    I don't think CL is a priority at the moment anyway.

    We don't really need Fabregas or Thiago we need a boss in the middle to protect the back 4 and just to give Carrick the ball like Viera and Keane of old. Someone like Sven Bender or Yann M'Vila since Fletcher cannot be relied upon and Jones is better used at centre back.

    What I don't understand is how comes we bid for Fabregas and we didn't bid for Thiago?
    Because United obviously weren't trying to sign Thiago. IanDangerously called it almost a week ago.

    But hold on, Manchester United's leading (armchair) fan and know-it-all Tommyjw said it'd take a high level of delusion to think United weren't trying to sign Thiago, and we know this must be fact because he saw it on Twitter, presumably from the always reliable Guillem Balague.

    Let's ignore the following quote from United's manager, David Moyes:

    "I never said at any time that he was [a target]," he said. "We're on with targets that we are chasing at this moment in time. At this moment in time and there are people we are actively chasing. At this moment in time we're happy with how things are going."

    In the Gaurdian it says that Moyes wants Fellaini and Cesc. I think that would be perfect.

    enough to know that your chances of getting fabregas are tiny as it is, but to get fellaini aswell is crazy. The thought of United spending atleast 55mill on their MIDFIELD is borderline retarded.

    The thought of us signing Fabregas is ridiculous, the thought of us spending £55m on our midfield is not.

    But why were we not trying to sign Thiago? Thiago is the same type of player as Fabregas but cheaper, younger and more realistically a transfer target as opposed to Fabregas.

    It just makes no sense that we go for a player that we are just so unlikely to get as opposed to getting someone similar that we are 100 times more likely to get. There's no logic in that.
