From the club. Man Utd do have money. They cant compete with Man City or Chelsea but then again who can. Modric will go and so will someone like Baines and you already have Kagawa. I dont think you need a striker at the moment. Kagawa, Modric and Baines would be a good window for Man Utd. Kagawa was a smart dea more then anything else. I was reading that they reckon that Man Utd will earn 20 million from Kagawa's name alone in Japan on their shirts.

If and that is BIG if Glazers are willing to offload some of the cash from the club.
I am reading how SAF is saying that price being asked for Modric and Baines is ridiculously high.

That is what I said that if Utd sign these two i will be happy.
And that will shut the window for this summer.
They don't need a new striker.

And as I said in one of my posts, Kagawa deal is firstly business signing, but we will see if it will turn out to be the real football signing.

I think Man Utd are willing to splash the cash but its the wages that are the stumbling point. Modric will be a Man Utd player this time next year unless Chelsea do something which I dont think they will.

The guys represented England at Under-16 and 17 level. Looks like a good prospect we will see how good when he goes out on loan.

He is a good young prospect. It was a race between Man Utd and Liverpool for him. I will find you a video of him if you want but I am just saying that Youtube can make the likes of Stuart Downing look good.

Reds speaking with Sigurdsson | Latest Football Transfer News | Sky Sports
Moyes - No Spurs contact | Sky Sports
M'Vila open to Arsenal move | Sky Sports
Vertonghen move 'still close' | Sky Sports

What do you think of Sigurdsson John? A good enough signing, or should Liverpool be aiming higher?

Good to see Newcastle aiming high and not sitting back on their great season, they are trying to sign Lille's Mathieu Debuchy one of Europe's most promising full backs, and one of Frances best players at Euro 2012 imo.
