    Oh wow! Interesting stuff. This would defintely increase our offensive threat. Perisic must be on his way there then. This will totally shake things up. Good work.

    So apply salt but hertyid added this:
    Word is Woodward is in discussions while Jose is bigging him up in the press. Good cop bad cop. Martial wants regular football and doesn't have good relationship with Mourinho. Let's see.

    Nope. Nope nope nope. Not giving in to hope on this one. Not until I see his giant eyebrows paraded around Wembley. I've been burned too many times late in windows...

    This would make me very happy. I was disappointed when Utd signed him initially... very good player in my humble opinion just needs belief in his abilities which I think poch will offer.

    In other news I can't believe how this thread goes from wrist slashing to league winning within the space of... I was going to say 24 hours but I feel like it's actually can be as little as the 2 minutes it takes to type some itk but I wouldn't change it. Bring on martial and Barkley. We dont need an rb trippier was fantastic for the last 8 games and KWP has the belief of poch behind him. Coys

    I wake up to 25 new pages in this thread and open it excited about reading lots of ITK, only to be encountered by pages of wank jokes and guessing games, as if this thread was filled with pimple-faced teenage boys thinking about their first kiss. Kudos to A&C, Rob and co in putting away the ban stick and keeping it a little more lenient tonight, It was quite the hilarious read. It seems like the excitement of the first signing of the window has even rubbed off on our excellent admin and staff.

    Hercules' and Gards' info is damn exciting and added to hertyids earlier on this page has me wanting to join in with the wanking jokes. That would be a statement of intent and help a lot on the space at Wembley. It makes me wary that Rose might be off as part of the deal though.

    I have a hard time believing we would have the funds to sign Martial even if United would sell to us. Imagine the fee they would quote in this market.

    Hmmm. Is Woodward in discussions with the player, Mourinho or us...

    Like many others on here today, can't see Martial happening without Rose as swap. But I would take this all day if we could get Sessegnon in too. I think Mourinho wants Rose badly and both clubs would be valuing at similar prices IMO especially with rumours of Chelsea readying potential bids of upto 70m banded around

    So Rose for Martial and then Sessegnon in as the new improved younger QUIETER Danny Boy...

    Happy days...!

    Hmm.. if this is the case I'm not sure how pro the deal I am. Sets a bad precedent - moan & bitch about your club, teammates and fans and you get rewarded with a big fat sale to the club of your dreams. By all means sell him next summer, hopefully that's what the agreement is if there is one.

    While I would normally agree with this sentiment, I think it's a whole different kettle of fish if another player -- particularly one as tasty as Martial -- is coming back in the other direction.

    EDIT: Not that I think we'll get Martial. I refuse to get my hopes up.

    Yes Martial would be pretty special. I worry though about getting rid of both our attacking wingbacks in one summer; they were such a big factor in our success last year, particularly in breaking teams down, and while losing Walker for Aurier I can just about handle (though it's by no means a given he'll hit the ground running) losing Rose as well I feel is a bit much. Personally I'd rather we sold him next summer for £70+ mil, ideally abroad, and in the meantime focused on finding a proper replacement and get our pacey wing-forward from the continent for half the price.

    Plus it's not a given Martial would immediately slot into our first team, especially given that it looks like we'll be prioritising a 3-atb. Effectively £70mil is a lot to be paying for what could well be, at least at the beginning, an impact sub.

    And finally, what happened to not strengthening our rivals? And 2 in one summer? There are better ways of improving our squad I feel.

    EDIT: Not that I think we're actually gonna get Martial either. I can't see Mourinho selling to us, I can't see him particularly wanting to come, & I can't see Levy not thinking there's better value to be had elsewhere. Frankly I'm pretty surprised the rumour's even lasted this long - it wouldn't surprise me if it was being promoted by our club to try and ward them off our players for the remainder of the window.

    As long as it is Martial, and not Frazier Campbell ...
