50 million reasons !
We're signing martial for 50m!?!?!?!?
now coming up to a very busy fortnight ladies and gents, with hopefully plenty of ITK and match talk, the site might need that little bit of funding to help Rob out to keep the servers up to speed. plenty of posters should = plenty of donations.
sorry @Archibald&Crooks if i'm talking out of turn, but with you being so busy deleting post, members and all the other headaches I've not seen any pushing for donations
Nice, its pretty easy to understand in black and white...
I'm surprised if we're bidding for Martial that we wouldn't bid on Mahrez. Not as good but more likely to happen I would have thought. At least we're looking at the right caliber of players.
If the ITK is correct then Martial's agent is making it known he wants to leave United.
He probably indicated that if we could get a deal worked out with United that Martial would sign on with us. Potentially puts a player (that we had interest in previously) that wasn't on our list for this summer on our radar and we take a shot.
I think and I may be wrong that we were looking at Martial for the £20m mark earlier in the summer of 2014 but got priced out once the big boys started sniffing.
I suspect it's why Danny Levy now waits for the whales to finish feeding before jumping into the frenzy.
£50m for someone not in your first 11 seems still extreme imho
Would love Martial. If swapping Dier or Rose was what it took I'd be happy with that.
He wants to come. And if we are coughing up £50m there might be a chance
Why are we quoting 50 million for martial? JJ's reply was in relation to why he didn't decide to move to us in the first instance
If Siggy is worth £50m, Martial certainly is.
Anyone, especially young kids, faced with the opportunity to earn huge amounts of money is extremely unlikely to turn it down. Playing football isn't a 'calling' it's a job. The facts are also clear that playing for Man U, Chelsea or City means you are very likely to win medals, awards and national recognition. So it's not hard to see why they pick the glamour clubs
True but we got sissoko and gkn for around £40m.
£57m if add in Janssen. I'd swap all 3 for Martial and we'd be paying less in wages overall. If only we learned over the years less is more and can actually overall be cheaper.
true but irrelevant,
its not a matter of what he is worth, we just dont pay that sort of money for anyone
What I find so frustrating is Walker fell out with Poch, which could be similar to Martial and Mourinho. Poch thought I don't need you Kyle, similar to Mourinho and Martial. Both managers and clubs think they'd rather have a chunk of money. Walker says I only want City, nowhere abroad, we sell to a rival despite knowing it'll massively improve them. If Martial was to say I only want Spurs and I want out now they'll either let him rot or force him abroad.
I know financially it's vastly different between us but the crux is they don't want to strengthen a rival whereas I guess we need to raise funds. It's just a real shame how things are for us, cos Martial would win us the league but I guess Jose knows that.
I was thinking the same thing earlier, but I've been busier than a three legged cat in a litter box lately, so renewing my monthly $10 donation.
Thanks for the timely reminder
