Imagine, a midfield with Bale, Matic, Fred and Milinkovic-Savic

Like you imagining a decent keeper.

I’ve never seen Fred play and no idea if he’s any good. Woodward has been after Bale for a long time, so I could certainly see him coming here if he moves, but expect him to sign a new contract with Real.

Me too, unless he had a special relationship with Mourinho (did they cross paths at Real?)

I predict you will buy him, a player like that shouldn't be on the bench and he will be aware he's probably got 1 big money move left in him.

I also predict you'll play him out of position and he'll be loaned out to WBA by Christmas.

Bale is, apparently, on £400k a week after tax and Mourinho said, after the Sanchez signing, he wouldn't be signing any more players on that sort of money.

But still, it wouldn't be a summer transfer window without constant talk of Bale to United

Maybe if we get Pogba off the books.

I think Jose said he wouldn’t be signing any attaching players after we signed Sanchez, rather than anything to do with money. If the right player comes along, we will be able to pay whatever is necessary.

Not fuelling transfer speculation or encouraging players to use Utd as a bargaining chip is a step in the right direction. I would however, bet good money that by the end of the window we have signed a striker, winger or attacking midfielder.

There are not too many places Bale could go, but I think he will end up staying in Madrid. He’s one of the best players in the world, but his fitness, age and cost would be a big risk - if only he could stay fit.

I like Bale, but if he was Ronaldo & messsi rolled into one, he would not be worth the money being toted. His age & possible injury problems alone, make him way overpriced. Uniteds problems go much deeper than buying one overpriced, overpaid striker/fullback (wherever Mourinho decides to play him).

In this country that'd be close to £800k a week. People justified that for Sanchez as there was no fee, but whack £80m on top of that.

I guess he'll be happy to stick out his contract at Real Madrid.

So, Fred's a Red apparently.

That's not going to get confusing...

I’ve never even seen him play, but seems like our first choice and we need a midfielder - so will wait and see.

Looks like a couple of deals getting done early which is a bonus.

Rumour mill hinting at De Gea to Madrid...if that happens I give up, he's the best keeper in the world FFS!

...we'll probably replace him with Karius

I hope Rashford has a great WC and a big club comes in for him, he's never going to become a United legend it seems while that Portuguese tosser is in charge...really want Maureen given the boot, he's making me start to hate football!

Rashford did what Rashford does when he's not controled. Hernandez was ruined at United as well. Had we played Ibrahimovic & Rashford together this last season, we would have given PAYG city a run for their blood money.

So it's endemic at United then, "ruining" strikers?

While I agree that Zlatan and Rashford would have been a tasty pairing, how many games was the former actually match fit for last time out?

Unless we surprisingly win the title next season (maybe even if we do), I'm not sure why, but I can't see José sticking around after next summer.
