Not so much a camp, more like one bloke.  Most say we sell if it’s our only way of strengthening the more pressing areas. If we can do that without selling then don’t sell. 

I'm can't work out why so many can't understand this thinking. 

 

Get YT in a class winger and a Vardy replacement we would not need such a strong defence. The opposition can't score if the balls in there box.

Its because

  • Sell one of our better players = selling club = sh*t club
  • We have loads of money dumb ass!, so we should keep everyone half decent and buy Youri
    • Oh and screw you and your new training ground, thats free innit

 

People are strange. I would be content to sell Harry if we got the 3 player position you highlight, as its for the good of the club/team/squad

Don`t believe this for one second, but £80m is quite a juicy amount of cash...

A desperate man utd will pay any thing, but just imagine if we managed to keep hold of our best players and overtook them in the league for the next 3 or 4 years. What would that be worth?

Probably a lot more than 80m

Of course, its a difficult scenario to judge. So many intertwined decisions to make

  • Money for re-enforcements
    • CB if Harry goes assuming we don't trust Benkovic and Caglar enough
    • Mid, ideally Youri, maybe one more depending on who else goes
    • Striker, learn from Vardz
    • Right Winger
  • Money for training ground
  • Money for Stadium expansion

 

Guess it all comes down to 1 question, do we have the cash to get all of the above without sellling players we want to keep?

 

Who'd be a club owner eh? (me, me, me, me...)

If Silva goes the other way we would probably only need 30m for Youri, one or two other acute additions is probably all we need if we decide to keep all key players.

 

We have took loans out for the training ground and stadium haven't we? so that should be in check regardless of outgoing signings 

 

so its possible we probably have got the cash to keep them.

You always need a strong backline. Defenders don't only play inside the box.

Their posts arent worded like that tho.

 

Its like this "80 million? snap their hands off".

or "I will drive him there myself".

 

Its as if they think they getting the money themselves.

 

For me its sell him if we need to, to get tielemans, otherwise keep him.  Never ever sell just to put money in the bank if we want to progress.  But its ok if its needed to fund acquisitions for the squad, but even then only one key player.

Whatever happens, Sky shouldn't be putting shit like this on their site.

It's massively disrespectful to our club, particularly as we've been English champions more recently than United.

 

Also, I'm convinced that neither side are super keen on him but Sky Sports seem desperate to try and spark something as there's no interesting transfers on the horizon. 

 

yeah wow thats just complete bullshit, even worse than refusing to put up odds for staying at Leicester city on sky bet.

Given you've decided to defend a phantom argument, allow me to re-quote the position I was challenging. 

 

Players, that's a plural. I suspect that anyone that wants to sell Maguire, does so conditionally, either on Tielemans being bought, or on being offered silly money. I highly doubt anyone wants rid in isolation.

 

Now, who else do people wish to flog, or were you just being contrary? 

selling because its silly money is stupid tho.  Also in 2019 60 million for a proven english national defender isnt silly money.

and it's something that could become a reality reading the man utd  tweet post in the do they mean us thread.

 

"I’ve said it before but it really is quite staggering when you sit and go through Leicester’s team and realise just how many you’d instantly take at Utd.

Periera, Maguire, Chilwell, Ndidi, Tielemans, Maddison all walk into our best 11! Its shocking really. "

 

 

the replies to it put you in the picture of how far man utd could fall if they don't start spending some serious cash, and if we want to be better than them, the last thing we should be doing is selling them our better players, we've bought and developed these players for us to get better, not to make other teams better and it's not as though we need the money, for us that's like saying my boss has just given me a 100 grand pay rise so i need a yacht.

Fair enough. I wasn't advocating his sale, personally.

Sky are gutted he plays for us. Huge huge gang of weirdos

Sky need a big signing every transfer window to justify their huge investment in the premier league and they don't care who the winners and losers are. No news is bad news for them

It's funny really. Many on here are concerned about selling to Man United as we are looking to compete with them and I do get that. If I had a preference, I'd rather sell him to Man City but they won't stump up that kinda money because they're not as desperate or stupid as that (not anymore anyway). I don't see how we can turn down £80 million if it came in regardless of who it is paying it when you weigh up the cost of a new training ground, potential stadium expansion and player signings. If that £80 million means that we can get Tielemans and a quality winger in and still have plenty of the original transfer budget left should we need it then surely we'll be a better side for it. Maguire is a good player but I don't consider him to be the most important player in our side, far from it in fact.

Why not just spend the transfer budget in that case rather than weaken one area of our squad, to strengthen another area that can be strengthened regardless.

Because we (probably) cannot buy all the players we need without some form of substantial outgoing (i.e.; Harry)

But no-one knows, its all theoretical anyway!

Hope you are right and we can get what we need without selling our top assets/players, as would much rather keep Harry, Ben and James (And of course all the others we would like to keep)

I wasn’t saying we could do that (great if we can), but if we could bring Tielemans in without letting anyone go. I’d rather that than sell Maguire this summer to find a winger and a back-up striker. 

 

Either option is a gamble I guess, will Soyuncu or Benkovic step up, will new signing make an impact... etc.

Why don’t we let the people in charge of the club decide what’s best for the club and we can all relax to be honest we have the best young team in the league and a manager that knows his stuff let’s just enjoy the ride or is that beyond most of us here?

It’s a forum, you know, for discussions and making points and shedding light on observations? If we just let the club get on with it we’d be even more bored and a little bit sadder too. If you don’t like the speculation I’d suggest you don’t view the transfer forum.......oh yeah, and punctuation too :doh:
