It’s obvious that we’re not going to sell Pogba and he’ll leave on a free after spending one more Mickey Mouse of a season at United, when his top priority will be avoiding injury.

We won’t buy a midfielder either. Get ready for another season of McFred protecting Maguire.

Coming from Fabrizio, it must be true. Just hope we don't get bent over by Real on the fees.

I reckon Varane is using us to get a new deal, but cos Madrid's finances are in a terrible state, they're prepared to let him leave

He's one of their top earners, and I reckon Madrid have an eye on the future when the chickens come how to roost ala Barca.

I hope we don't play silly buggers over the fee and turn this into a long drawn out affair, like we always do.

It seems different. It was obvious with Ramos.

I don't think it's going to happen.

Nah, it’s bollox. Our owners are playing it along to signal commitment and he’s using us to get a better deal.

I hope you’re wrong. Given that Ole doesn’t seem to rate any of our CBs beside Maguire and (maybe) Lindelof, we could probably do with two of them even.

To be fair to Varane, it’s probably a dodgy prospect from a football perspective. He’s been playing alongside Ramos for years, one of the very best in the world. If he comes here, he’ll have to deal with Maguire, whose job is to stand in one place showing a Brexit voter’s notion of “leadership”, while his partner has to cover all the ground and take all the blame for any goals conceded.

Madrid will either get him off their books completely or give him a not-quite-as-big new contract cos their finances are fucked. I reckon he'll take the latter.

Yup, I suspect you’re right Sid.
