Man United made a bigger loss than Chelsea last season. Something else they pipped us to.

Looks like Chelsea have offered £8m plus Yossi for Meireles - £10m plus Daniel Sturridge and I'll be interested.

It just would make no sense for us, Meireles is better and younger, as you say Sturridge...or even Anelka plus cash would be the only deals I would see benefitting us.

I'd rather Meireles stay with us than go to a team competing with us for a top 4 place.

I wouldnt let him go at all unless we get a striker in, not another midfielder.

Depends on Raul - I'd rather invest in another forward and right winger than keep hold of him if he wants to go to them. If he wants to stay then just keep hold.

Do we need another midfielder? Thought we had plenty, it's more support up front we could do with cover for. Can't see Benyoun offering anything we have now. Unless we can get him on lower wages and Raul is on high wages?

I remember reading that Raul's on relatively low wages (c £25k pw). It's part of the reason he's unsettled, as he apparently arranged a verbal agreement for a pay rise with Purslow if he had a good first year, which the new owners then reneged on.

If you believe it, of course.

I read something during the summer that Raul has a deal where if he played a certain number of games it triggered a clause which bumped his salary up massively and FSG are not honouring that agreement as it doesn't fit with their new salary strategy.

I reckon that's why he is allowed to leave, it's purely financial. Shame as when he played up alongside Suarez and Kuyt it completely changed the pace and dynamic of the attack.

Edit - as above it was more of an agreement based on performance than number of games.

Meireles should be worth around the £20m mark,
oh i forgot he is not british, so he is worth less then what we paid for him around £10m

the guy should be staying, as he better then most of the midfielders we have anyway, if he goes it will be a bad loss for us

these players should be sold first & i dont mean going out on loan either - Joe Cole & Christian Poulsen, there dont offer anything too the squad at all

If players are on decent wages and are crap there's not a lot the club can do. Man City can't give their players away as they are happy to sit on their arses getting a **** load of money each week.

It looks like Poulsen will be gone this week, not sure about cole though. all the rumours around him have stopped.

horse-trading re Yossi do you think? Leave him and you can take Cole on loan?

A mischievous twitterer has planted a fake rumour saying Neymar to Liverpool to see if Sky Sports News report it as a story. Of course loads of people have actually started believing it with #Neymar and #LFC trending worldwide now!

EDIT: see above!

Seems as though Benayoun is joining Spurs according to t'internet - always thought they were short of small attacking midfielders....
