Sky sources understand United are in negotiations for Pogba, 100 million

Fucking madness.

Why the tits did Valdes ever leave Barcelona on a free? His career has gone slowly but surely down the swanny since

Cos he couldn't get a game and isn't actually that good a keeper
Simply simply lovely

He left of his own volition after deciding not to sign a new contract! said he would leave a season in advance.

Worst career decision ever.

Ibe going to Bournemouth is a weird one since all the kopites I know said he was going to be better than Sterling and seem to rate him.

He was only 30-31 when he announced he wouldn't be signing, in keeper terms he had plenty time in front of him. I reckon he either called Barca's bluff and hoped they'd up their offer or someone would sign him on a pre contract but he obviously didn't factor in his knee falling to pieces during his last season. Either way, as Hill has said it's been a terrible career choice. Even going to Utd went tits up, he thought De Gea was on his way to Real and he'd get number 1 but between Real's fax machine not working and LVG falling out with him, that idea soon went south as well.

Yes strange.

Almost as though they were trying to feel better about themselves that their best players always want to leave them...

A few kopite friends of mine say Ibe's attitude isn't the best.


On Pogba, is he really worth 100 million, 300k a week? Football takes another turn for the ridiculous with this one.

AZ are supposedly selling this Janssen on the advice of Moneyball baseball expert Billy Beane, who says Spurs are overpaying.

I read the opposite the other day, that he'd said not to sell at the price Spurs offered as he was worth more?

Yeah, Beane told AZ to hold out for more. The analytics people I've read all really like Janssen.

Sky Sports is reporting it wrong then.

The relevant point is: the bloke's name is Billy Beane lolol
