    There's no reason for Woodward to fly back out about fabregas if barca aren't willing to sell.

    If Moyes seriously turned down signing Thiago because of fears about the physicality then that's rather embarrassing as a club. Convinced we are going after Cesc just to please the fans whilst he gets Fellaini and his yellow card every game attitude that certainly fits with the physicality.

    I already think Moyes made mistakes in what he has sad about Rooney and hanging him out to dry in the press about him being second choice to RvP. Be rather bad if we get into august with no significant and to be honest.
    There is nothing pleasing about being turned away by yet another world class footballer.

    I'm a bit behind on this because I have been on holiday, but The Guardian reported on Monday that Moyes declined to sign Thiago, who wanted to come, in order to pursue Fabregas. If that is true then I think Moyes really missed a trick; Thiago would have been perfect and great value.
    I don't think its true, there isn't enough in the two of them you would do that especially not with the prices. I think its journalists trying to string a story that makes sense together.

    I think he name dropped Fabregas because Guardiola name dropped Thiago and he liked that. But I think Fabregas won't come, nor will a bid be accepted. Making us look like we've missed two key signings (+ even poss strootman if we were really in for him) WHY U NO HV PULLIN POWA?

    Pep only named dropped Thiago because the deal was pretty much done already...

    On the bright side, if we don't sign a good CM, then we can give Nick Powell plenty of chances!

    I really want Adnan Januzaj to get a run in the team. Seems like a good prospect.

    He looks very promising but not ready/experienced enough to be a regular first team player.

    Adnan isn't a cm anyway. But he is lucky he plays in positions that we can sub him in/out without much impact so he should get plenty of games time hopefully.

    I'd quite like to see Januzaj too. Some fresh faces on the wings in him and Zaha could be quite exciting after a bit of a dreary year in those positions.

    Just wondering, I notice a lot of you call Januzaj "Adnan". Is that what he wears on his shirt or are you all just on first name terms with him?

    I think it might be that it's just easier to spell Adnan then Januzaj.

    Of course he could be Kusczak which is a pain to spell. So much so I'm not even sure I've spelt it right there.

    That is the thing that worries me. We have the toughest start to a new season since records began and people say that we can wait until the transfer window shuts?

    We need the players to come in as soon as possible and adapt to the teammates and manager as soon as possible to get off to start the season up and running.

    We should be the team that concluded the deal first logically thinking right? Yet, we are the last of the clubs to get a deal done! (Varela does not count).

    Those few games at the start of season are so important to moyes, that is why he looking for proven talent that is or was playing the PBL, that is why I think he did not go for Thiago as it might of risked the outcome of the season as he is relatively unproven and is risky. Cesc or Mordic would be perfect as they are great midfielders but crucially have PBL experience.

    So it all evolves around Moyes getting the best possible start that he can.
    This is definitely logical, and probably true. That said, I'm not sure how attractive United looks as a club, at the moment. Disregarding silly factors that some players give about the Mancunian weather, United no longer have the greatest manager of all time, can afford less in terms of wages than compared to, say, Man City, and are possibly about to lose one of their best players. Chelsea, with Mourinho looking to rejuvenate the club, and City, who have made a couple of decent signings, would, if I were looking to move to England, be more attractive places to play football.

    So yes, as you say, we have to sign a reasonably decent player reasonably quickly. Not just for your reasons (settling into both United and the PL, avoiding early pressure on Moyes, etc.), but because, whilst we still prove to the European football community that we can bring in good players, good players will want to be brought in. The better we make our squad, the more attractive it is to play there. Modric or Fabregas, or even Kroos (whose transfer rumours are pretty much dead) would be great signings, then, in terms of both results, and future trading.

    There were rumors a few days ago that he would be offered a new contract, he hasn't signed anything though and those rumors could just be rumors. I'd much prefer him to sign a new contract than to leave for the fees being quoted.

    Not yet, but I really hope that he does.

    He's a very good player and deserves a chance in the team. I hated how Sir Alex would drop him after one bad performance. Other players got away with having multiple bad ones in a row.
