We're getting Varane for £34m plus add ons, apparently. As much as I slag off the people running the club, fair play to that.

Could this also be the impact of John Murtough?

Hope so...
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...

And there we were, all of us doubting the Boards choices for DoF.....if Murtough and Fletcher can get deals over the line quickly and without us paying over the tops, then what a huge step forward. It'll be a miracle to expect them to get much money for the dross in the squad mind....

They can't really be blamed for not being able to shift them if it does prove to be the problem we expect. They are hardly responsible for the mess anyway.

The most annoying thing is that Murtough has been at the club for 7 years now... consider how much money we've spunked unnecessarily in that time.

What the fuck is happening, when did we become a well run club?

We’re surely going to be looking to offload a few. No way are we gonna end up with a net spend of 200m. Lingard will probably fetch 20-30m, but anything we get for Pogba would have to be reinvested anyway.

Yeah the club seems to be doing well this summer. Sancho and Varane were clearly the priorities, and they’ve gone ahead and got them sorted out quite quickly. Sancho is big money, but Varane’s price seems fair, maybe even good value, by the standards of the market.

The word is now that the club is looking for opportunities, with midfield the priority, and RB and CB also something they might go for if a good opportunity comes up. In the meantime we need to ship some players out. I’d say the best case scenario is we sell Pogba and get a decent DM, then maybe Atletico will accept an offer for Trippier before the window closes.
