    I remember when Andy Carroll being sold for 35mil was the highest fee paid for an English player

    Daylight thievery was a hallmark of Franco’s regime. Story checks out.

    We inquired earlier in the calendar year and were told the same valuation. They’ve been high on him and won’t cheap out on his sale.

    Didn’t Tuchel suspend him like a half dozen times and do everything he could to get him out of Dortmund?

    Madrid’s willingness to let such an important player go should be a huge red flag for United.

    I think 70 million euros for a 30 year old had something to do with it.

    I am not criticizing the move, just seems like a lot.

    It’s astronomical. And it still doesn’t address their issues at GK, CB, FB, or striker. It’s a band aid on a gunshot wound, but this is United so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.

    They’ve needed to buy a DM for years so I’m not going to fault them for paying what it takes to get one of the best in the world

    The concern would be wages and whether he declines halfway through the contract.

    He’s a 2-3 year fix when they need a total rebuild. And it’s another player on what I assume are massive wages.

    good for him though, he’s got quite literally nothing left to prove at the club level and if he’s able to earn generational wealth and set up his family then more power to him. By all accounts a great teammate and solid human being so I wish him well but wouldn’t ever want the responsibility of having to protect Harry and Lisandro.

    Poor Alonso. He won’t get to live out his dreams of having Barca ask him to reduce his wages after signing a contract.

    Laurie’s article says it could go up if they make UCL but could “drop significantly if they continue to miss out on UCL”
