Ayoze Perez cost a similar amount to Mo Salah 

Yes but Salah wasn't a 40 goal forward back then and was coming from Italy, plus I'm guessing his wages are are or were at least double what perezs are.

If we are selling Harry and going to replace him with Dunk or the chap from Burnley, I hope he stays.  If we are to use existing resources to replace him, then personally ( not that that matters at all) all for rinsing OGS and Woody the Woodpecker.

As it stands Wan Bissaka cost more than Youri 

£45m for a right back with 'potential', one good season and a poor performance for England U21s vs £85m for England's first choice CB with 3 good seasons in the Premier League and a goal in the World Cup. Seems we should be asking for more from United.

Man Utd have elite level money but have dropped a rung in elite level status. When Man City, Juventus, Barca and Real compete for the same players then Man Utd are wasting their time as was the case with De Ligt. 

 

Man Utd want obtainable quality in now and Maguire fits the bill but they know they'll have to bid higher than Man City to get Maguire. I fully expect Maguire to go for about £80m-£85m as they know they'll have to blow Man City out of the water rather than both bids being accepted and Maguire making a choice.

Thanks SO1 great summary of the H situation. 

Don't thank me. Thank the Urban Spaceman :appl: He's the one who did all the work. I don't know how he has the patience to sort out this crap.

Doing the heavy lifting so we don't have to. :)

It's be a bummer if Man U drop out aswell as Looks like Man city have due to we wanting 90m.

Let him go for 75m to Man United, that's where he wants to be.

Has Harry actually developed significantly since when he first arrived? Or is it we've been the platform his career needed at this time? For me I think it's been the latter which makes me wonder why United want to spend so much on him?!

If Harry goes, why do we need to pay £40 mil or any amount for a “replacement”? We already bought two decent CBs last summer plus we have Evans and Morgan still. Save the money for a creative midfielder (besides Tielemans) - I am still not convinced Maddison is it. Or a really good DM who is as good as Ndidi in tackling but can make a pass or hold the ball up - eg. Kante!

I'm not certain on the quality of Benkovic or Soyuncu, I don't think we'd be in a crisis is Maguire left but I'd prefer to bring in an experienced Premier League centre back.

I'm the Urban Spaceman, baby
I've got speed
I've got everything I need
I'm the Urban Spaceman, baby
I can fly
I'm a supersonic guy

I don't need pleasure
I don't feel pain
If you were to knock me down
I'd just get up again
I'm the Urban Spaceman, baby
I'm making out
I'm all about

I wake up every morning with a smile upon my face
My natural exuberance spills out all over the place

I'm the Urban Spaceman
I'm intelligent and clean
Know what I mean?
I'm the Urban Spaceman
As a lover, second to none
It's a lot of fun

I never let my friends down
I've never made a boob
I'm a glossy magazine, an advert in the tube
I'm the Urban Spaceman, baby, here comes the twist
I don't exist.

We're 2 years transfer inflation on from Salah's transfer.

Salah was still an absolute steal 2 years ago. Slimani cost £29 a year before that....

Harry Maguire is going nowhere, except pre season training with Leicester City...

You heard it here first folks... :thumbup:

I think BR will manage to keep the squad together this season at least, with the promise that they will re-asses depending on how successful we are.

 

All of our desirable players are tied down to decent, long-term contracts, and we don't need to sell. Most of the first team have got plenty of years ahead of them too, and a lot of confidence with how the season ended, a pre-season with BR, no european distraction, and the likes of Tileman signing on a permanent and Perez joining really strengthens us. I can't see Maddison, Maguire, or Pierrera, or Chillwell leaving this summer

I think you’re correct we’re a platform for players to thrive I’ve not really rated Maguire for us except when he’s bought the ball out from the back I don’t think he’s a great defender if he joined United he’d be a disappointment with a massive price tag it’s hard to explain we’re not as good a side as Man Utd but imagine somebody like martial signing for us he’d be a cult hero instead of a bit part player

Unbelievable Jeff.

In the Leicester Mercury World, where words grow on trees, but grammar is a rare commodity and common sense can only be found on the moon.
