Ole's bought sensibly.
Worst case scenario I can see a loan deal happening for Bale.

Looks like we're serious about Reguilon

Grealish has signed a new 5 year deal with Villa, so thank fuck the story about him coming to us will come to an end - https://www.skysports.com/football/news ... villa-deal

I'm surprised by the preference of Reguilon over Telles. Telles is older, more experienced and has much better scoring, assists and chances created stats. Surely we could benefit from that over signing a 'young up and coming' player again.

Glad that's over with. Never seen the hype about him.

I know some die hard Villa fans and they rate him over Sancho, they go to every single game and obviously see how he plays week in/week out.

Hopefully I hear news of Sancho doing the same thing.

Looks like he is off to Spurs instead, funny how he really wanted to join United but is happy to sign for Spurs now. Telles is a better player IMO, think it might be for the best.

Word is that the Glazers have told Ole that it's just Sancho and no other signings and that he is to make do with the squad he has. Hence why we are stalling on Smalling moving, hence why we didn't pay the Upamecano release, hence why we aren't bothering with Thiago.

I get that finances will be tricky with no crowds and merch sales dropping and still paying out to keep the club running, I get that. I run my own business with 50 employees and I know just what it means to need to balance the books and keep a cap on spending. And so if we don't buy Sancho for £110m, well that's just good business sense. Not so good for the footballing side. But it's the lack of progress in other areas which really grates my nuts. Where is the DoF, why haven't we shifted the dross, why make all the noises pre-transfer window and then make man look like a fool during? And then there is this story about the owners taking out £90m in dividends and how the other owners of the top 6 haven't.

I don't think we'll get Sancho. In fact, I'm not confident we'll get anyone else.
