Full backs are so important in the modern game, especially in the system we play we inverted wide players. Bissaka is good defending 1 on 1, but he’s shit with a football.

By all accounts, Dalot is doing really well at Milan. He’s still on 21. We should be having him back here next season and giving him a proper go.

When we signed Dalot he was rated as the best upcoming rb in Europe.

Probably a combination of shit coaching and never getting a run of games probably didn't help his development.

Then we went out and spunked 55mill on awb after he had played 1full season for top flight football.

Dont think Dalot will ever have a future at utd while ole is manager with Ed at the helm, as it means awb was a failed signing, and noone will admit that, same way as maguire will never be dropped, as he cost a world record 80+mill.

Media reports that we're interested in Leipzig's other CB Konate as a replacement for Lindelhoof

Might be legit or it might be United briefing to manage the disappointment from yesterday's game when Hoof rightly got most of the flak cos he's fucking shite

Not really sure if this fits in here, but bbc have talked to raiola, and he has this to say about transfers in the covid climate.

"European football's top clubs are facing billions of pounds of losses as a result of the Covid crisis, but Raiola rejects the suggestion that top players' wages and transfer fees - and therefore agents' commissions - will suffer as a result.

"I don't think there is a correlation," he told BBC Sport from his office in Monaco.

"For the extraordinary talents, there is always space.""

He really has a brass neck if he expects clubs to continue to shell out the transfers they have in the recent past in the current financial climate.

I cant stand that rat of a man.

Sure...but then again he’s just extracting maximum value from the assets under his management. All just a symptom of a fucked up modern football world. Eventually it will eat itself.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...

He's got an eye on a massive pay out when we try and sign Haaland again

Every top club being linked with Haaland. Raiola is putting him out there. He's definitely up for grabs this summer. Ole said he keeps in touch with him.

He would transform our play. Him and a Fernandes, oof.

I’ll give Raiola credit for being very transparent about his motivations. Him and Dortmund are looking to shift Haaland already this summer. So a season and a half will result in a huge payday. He’s also hawking Donnamura and Pogba.

It is a dilemma. Haaland is obviously a goal machine, potential megastar. But we’ve seen how Raiola constantly unsettles Pogba, tells him his coaches are using him wrong, constantly hawking him to other clubs. This will be Haaland’s third move in as many years...

If you were to spend big on either Haaland or Mbappe, maybe Mbappe would be the way to go. Seems more sensible, more professional.

Yeah that's the dilemma. He's good enough to build a team around, but he probably won't stay for more than a year or two cos Raiola will want another pay day, so you can't really do that. My head says no but my heart says yes, go for it, cos in that one season we might win the league.
