He's a panic buy after the group of death draw in the CL. They will be hoping that his experience will help us get through the group, another attacking option when the current front 3 draw blanks.

Nowt we can do about it now but pray that Cavani has two great seasons and at the very least send Martial a message that if he is not 100% every single game, he can be benched.

We've signed another teen talent in Facundo Pellistri. With all the other young lads coming in this summer, it does seem as if the club are sticking to the strategy of signing em young and teaching them the United way. Maybe this is the 4 year plan, all these 16/17/18 year olds signed this summer will hit the first team.

We've had that policy for 3 or 4 years. We should be some of the fruits now, but we're not.

Telles is on. Matt Judge must have finally answered his phone.

And Dalot gone.

AC Milan have confirmed the signing of Diogo Dalot on a season-long loan.

A statement reads:

"AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of defender José Diogo Dalot Teixeira on loan from Manchester United FC.
"The defender has chosen to wear jersey number 5."

So 4 out for sure —Sanchez, Pereira, Dalot and surely Smalling. Perhaps up to 5 since Rojo training apart from the squad.

3 in—Cavani, VDB, Telles

Woody pretty lucky Real Madrid backed out of the VDB deal, otherwise he’d be destroyed for this window. Instead he’ll just be crucified.

No, he'll still be destroyed. And so he should be.

The Cavani deal already looked bad. After today, it looks comical.

When you see it written down like that the outgoings aren't too bad tbf, especially if Rojo goes too. But Sanchez is the big one being the biggest earner / fuck up. That's a fair chunk off the wage bill. Most of it will probably go on Cavani.

Neville nailed it on commentary. Going into the summer we were on an up- primed for 3 or 4 quality signings to kick us on. We've not delivered and others have strengthened. I think its floored not only the fans, but some of the players too.
