    Well let's not forget that we spent 50 million last summer, it might have not been on a world class player but it was still 50 million Sir Alex had to spend. We might have a similar amount to spend this summer. We could have offered similar wages for Hazard as City and Chelsea but they are also the European Champions and English Champions. All we can do is make assumptions as to what happened. I remember reading many assumptions about our finances in the past and then we spent 50 million.

    And so what if we sign Powell and Clyne, 2 players with a lot of potential. As long as we get the quality players we need all will be good! Getting established and youth players is what all clubs should be after. If at the end of the transfer window we haven't got the players we need we will all rage! but it's only May and there is plenty of time to get deals done.

    Let's not forget he also rejected City. Chelsea must have some kind of mega deal to tempt him there, maybe Abramovich gave him his yacht.
    Probably told him he would play most weeks. Not the case at city. Even a $#@!y bastard like hazard would know that.

At the start of these transfer rumours I thought we couldn't go wrong with either, and that's what I still think. He'd be a fine addition to our squad.
    $#@!ing this. He's bloody good. He's quite and effective. It's just like hazard without the attitude.

    Your owned by rich owners who don't give a $#@! now. Abramovich bloody loves football and I can't speak for the city owner but hes there most weeks.

    But we're not in a bubble. United, as Metal pointed out, is still in the green. We have our own money. Abramovich may love Chelsea and football, I don't doubt that. But someday, might not be tomorrow or in 10 years, he'll be gone. That's a fact of life. It is a dangerous game to play having private owners.

    Chelsea and City are in their bubbles where life is grand but someday that bubble will roll over a spike and the fallout will be nasty. We've seen this in other businesses.

    Football clubs should not have a majority owner, I firmly believe that. If someone super rich out there loves United, buy it, pay off the debt and turn the club private meaning nobody owns it.

    Football clubs should be like traditional companies, think of it like a black box. Revenue goes into the box, something happens in the box (product) and out comes profit. The profit is what you spend.

    We don't know what went down wouldn't surprise me if we pulled out of the bidding when it went to 20 million.

    We didn't win the league or get no where near as far in the CL this season as well so I doubt there's 50 mil to spend this season. Some of the earnings have to go on the debt payments.

    General football news.. Ljajic dropped from Serbian squad because he refused to sing anthem. (apparenlty he's not ethnically a Serbian) Quite sad that they would drop a play based on nationalism/politics... football is meant to bring people together.

    I'm quite certain that wasn't the reason and also that he won't get the number 10 at Chelsea. What are they going to tell Mata? "You're last season's news son, step aside for our newer young star."

    Great news if true that we've got Kagawa, softens the blow of losing out on Hazard.

    I still think we could do with another centre mid a box to box player. Not sure who that will be Javi Martinez, Garcia from Benfica. A replacement for Hargreaves, Fletcher. Then a left back and squad is looking strong.

    Loving the angry posts.

    But, no one has mentioned the rumoured £6 million the agent is getting. If that was the fee, BOTH Manchester clubs will have told Hazard to do one. I'm sure the clubs stated they would no longer pay over the odds for agent fees. £6 million buys Nick Powell by the way.

    Not too fussed to be honest, I'd never heard of Hazard until he started flogging himself on twitter.

    United should chuck in a cheeky bid for Muniain or Iniesta, yeah I know it would never happen, but you never know. Iniesta might fancy a new challenge.

    If they sign Kagawa(I hope they do) no doubt they will get the transfer fee back in days with shirt sales in Japan alone. I hear gingham is big in Japan.

    And what's with the Jones bashing. He chose United over Arsenal for less money, yet Hazard would have been the greatest thing since... well Hazard. I'd rather have 11 Jones' in my team, than 11 Hazards'.

    I hope they do, still think he'd be a great signing. He also gets goals, plus his marketing would be a great addition.

    They need to announce it soon to appease the fans and sell season tickets.

    Appease the fans or appease twitter?

    I swear with each passing year, patience is getting shorter and shorter. There are only a couple of months left, of a transfer window that hasn't actually opened yet.
