Maguire to Man Utd / Man City

Recommended Posts

This is all made up media and fan guff. If he was for sale Man Utd would have known how much we wanted for Maguire from the very first phone call. Why put low ball bids in when they’d know it would just drag out and they’d have to stump up a huge fee and possibly de-rail their own season and piss their own players off, there’s no point in doing that as Maguire would need to be integrated into the Man Utd squad and become familiar with how their team works and plays. Man City knew as Pep said in an interview he’s a Leicester player. To me that proves that Maguire wasn’t for sale in the first place and both Man City and Man Utd had been told that from the off.

I actually think either deal is done already or utd wont stump up the cash and it is dead in the water. All this about £95M etc and us raising the price is pure bollox to string it out in the media. If this is a done deal by the weekend what else are they going to talk about until Thursday. Plus I think it is all engineered to make us look like we are the bad guys in all of this as they cant upset their beloved united and its worldwide army of clickbait.

some of the comments on that tweet lol

 

why would you want to sign for a club with a fan base like that! I know most prem teams (including ours!) but United definitely seem to have some of the strangest fans in the league!

Wouldn't be surprised for this to all fall through. United seem adamant they won't pay £80m + £10m add-ons, which is what we've requested this entire time. 

 

No doubt we'll be painted the bad guys in this

I really do recommend spending no energy on this whatsoever - it's all smoke and mirrors. He'll either be sold or he won't.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not taking anything for gospel, but I am starting to get nervous and twitchy that reports are now starting to appear about wanting £90m (which is more than anything previously reported) , Harry not playing tonight because of his frame of mind, and him getting “more and more frustrated”.

 

I really hope we don’t play ourselves into a bad position.

 There's also 'reports' of us wanting £95m this morning too. I'd take it all with a pinch of salt. According to previous 'reports' we will only accept bids of £80m, £85m, £90m & £95m. According to 'reports' fees have been agreed. According to 'reports' he's having medicals. Honestly I take it all with a pinch of salt.

 

I don't for once minute believe we will play ourselves into a bad position. I am sure Maguire knows the score and has been told the clubs stance. If anything its YANITED that is causing Maguire to become 'frustrated' by low balling us with their 'bids.'

This has been easily the most exhaustingly stupid transfer saga in recent memory - surpassing Mahrez.

It's Mahrez all over again minus the tantrum. Same rumors, tweets, low bids, "asking price not met", "he stays", "he goes", " we don't need to sell", "they can fck off"...

 

It didn't go too bad at the end.

Aren't we already at that stage? Even if Maguire goes now for the fee we want - our first game is in 9 days and the window closes in 6. Why would we want to strengthen a direct rival, lose our best defender, spend £30-50m on a subpar replacement and have no preseason or bedding in time with them?

Who cares? Football pundits are fickle people with short term memories. At Christmas when United are leaking goals and we're ahead of them in the table they'll be asking why United didn't buy a decent premier league proven centre back and asking if we're going to upset the so called "big six" and stake our place in Europe next season!

 

Now let's keep hold of Harry (he'll get over it when we're winning everything - knowing he'll end up at a better club than United next year) and go and buy that winger to finally replace Mahrez.

I'm glad that neither of you are running our club

Doesn’t that depend how much extra we will have to pay to get deals done in the final week ????

 

three weeks ago we could bluff sellers that we could go elsewhere

The wisdom of Yoda - either sold he will be, or sold he won’t. He must either stay or go. No other path is there.

It is that simple, there is so much in my life I cannot control, so I really cannot afford to get het up about this. I'm slightly more concerned about the dam down the road giving way....now that does cause me anxiety.

Manure, the red caf, sky and the rest of the media would go into meltdown ...     :D

You're right HPF. Nothing we can do about it and already far too much effort has been wasted speculating on something none of us know anything about or have any control over.

 

Situation looks bad in Whalley Bridge - hopefully the rain will ease off and give the engineers a chance to save the dam

So what is actually happening with this? Have they actually bid? Or is the mass of panic purely down to him not playing tonight.

 

I'd crease if we played him tonight and told United where to go!

If we let Maguire go and sign fecking Dunk, well, greatly angered I will be, and we all know where that leads.
