    Yep, Sky Sports News, most definitely are not considered one of the more trustworthy sources for info in any way shape or form, they are basically Indykalia in TV form. /s

    Every time SSN reports that 'Sky sources can [confirm/verify/report etc]' I just switch off or start laughing.

    A Madrid side with Bale would be terrifying on the break, Bale and Ronaldo down either wing. I would think it make sense for Spurs, he's clearly not staying, and £80m would do a lot for their side considering what they already have. I'm surprised Spurs don't try and get a Madrid player to go the other way, the likes of Di Maria or Coentrao who with Isco too would surely be surplus, and Madrid surplus usually goes cheap.
    Real would be foolish to get rid of Di Maria, he's one hell of a player!

    He was the main threat against us in the CL. That Ozil, Ronaldo and Di Maria front 3 is lethal AF!

    But yeah if Bale goes in, someone will have to leave!

    As well as anderson I really wouldn't mind offloading a winger tbh. With Zaha's arrival it's going to be really congested in terms of places, especially when you consider that Kagawa or Welbeck could play off the wing. Zaha also looks really promising and I think he's one of those players who would improve greatly if he had a consistent number of games. I'd prefer young to leave rather than Nani, since he's never really justified his fee every time I've seen him play. Way too predictable and one-dimensional + he dives a lot..

    Young actually played okay today, he put in a few good balls and almost got us a penalty.

    I don' t think we should sell any winger at the moment. Nani and Young have had injuries preventing progress. Give them another season to prove themselves. Valencia also has to pick up his game this season. I prefer Zaha to the lot of them though. Zaha is younger, more exciting, can cut in or run down the wing and is English.

    But yes, Anderson needs to go.

    Problem with selling Young is if we need to get rid of a winger its probably a right winger, and the fact how much are we realistically going to get for him? "How would our 28 year old winger on £100k+ p/w?" Not many suitors on those wages, and it not like we could cut the price by mum, we'd be lucky to flog him for £5m. I think he just had a bad season too, he was very good in his first and good at the Euros. One of Nani or Valencia would be most likely with the arrival or Zaha and the progress of Adnan who both seem to favour the right hand side. That's 4 player who like playing the same position.

    Seeing the videos in the Arsenal thread reminded me of Rio's tour diaries, he's got a few 2013 ones up, imagine there will be more coming.

    Spurs would be stupid to accept such an offer, especially if it was Young we offered.

    They dont really need a winger anymore even if they lose Bale (very unlikely) since they have just signed Chadli

    If Bale goes to Real it will be so frustrating, any Spanish player playing at a Spanish club who plays well and Real are interested, it's like - I'm not leaving Spain and its my dream to play for them and the selling club is like, no problem sir.

    A Welsh player, who is also a Man Utd fan, who was going to join us except he wanted playing time and Real are like, sure we'll have you too.

    Real Madrids transfer policy....

    Vibes from Bale suggested he might be happy to stay without categorically saying he'd stay. If RM makes an £85m bid and Bale says he wants to go - he'll be a goner. Spurs wouldn't to wait a year, Bale gets injured/has a drastic loss of form and the £85m valuation drops so better to accept now. We, despite an interest in Bale, wouldn't pay that amount of cash.

    Going public for a major transfer is a gamble for us but it might be that they're trying to put pressure on Barcelona to get them to listen or feel they can let the player know - if they haven't already - that they want him but even if it goes belly up then like someone said before, it's not as if its a young player whose no-one has heard of. It just means the club were maybe wrong to target a player so ensconced at his club rather than the method of trying to get him.

    Expect a third place finish and getting out of the CL group (then it depends on who we meet) at absolute minimum. We should mount a half decent title challenge, don't expect us to win it.
    Ok.

    I have said for a long time (outside TSR) that Man Utd need a top class CM to take them to the next level. I know a lot of you guys feel the same way.

    But how many new CMs do you want? And what type of CM(s) would you like at Man Utd?

    Cannot see how Cesc warrants such a bid price tag of 40mil at 26, Madrid seem to be keen on Vidal which could give us a shot at Modric and Marchisio has also expressed a desire to come to us, and Gustavo seems to be heading out of Bayern, if Cesc doesn't want to leave Barca I see no reason why we should bid so high for him and make a fool out of our club.

    Levy would wait until deadline day to sell to get the highest possible fee - and leave Spurs with no time to get a replacement.

    Not my first choice, but if Sir Alex thinks he can do this job, then so be it. I thought we would look to appoint somebody with top level club experience. I don't expect much from United this season. There hasn't been this much change within the club for over 20 years. Probably 3rd in the league. 2nd at a push. Nowhere in the CL. Our squad isn't good enough to get far in that competition. Hopefully a nice cup run.
    I agree. But you never know...with Fergie giving some assistance, Moyes might settle into the job well and do a good job.

    Of course, I have my doubts (due to the presence of Mourinho and Man City's money) and will wait to see how things pan out.
