My take on central midfielders is if you play a 2 you need 3 quality ones. Central midfielders are always getting injured due to the nature of the position - especially knee injuries.

Also you need 6 in total - Cleverley/Fletcher/Fellaini ok for 4/5/6 choice. Two are home grown, but obviously 28 mill is too much to pay for a 4th choice CM.

Vidal has been the biggest transfer farce of the Glazer era. People are seriously pissed off with the way the whole thing has played out. Its switched people off but there are still enough addicts and flakes to fill OT though.

VILLAGE!

I feel that this has been missed by the usual transfer wankery but we still don't have Rojo's work permit sorted.

Kind of sums a lot of things up....

£8-9 million is probably fair for everyone involved with Cleverley. He's got the EPT (English premium tax) and is still young enough.

I think he's been a bit of a scapegoat for the malaise but he doesn't exactly help himself with the TC23 bollocks. A move is good for him and good for United.

Zaha confirmed he's gone back to Palace as well. Although subsequently deleted the tweet.

Problem is, we'd have to pay £12-16M to bring in someone with his equivalent skills. We're getting screwed on every transaction these days.

A quarter of that £400m is Fellaini, Zaha, Hernandez, Anderson and Young who could all be gone by the end of the window or at least next summer. Dortmund trying to get Kagawa back too.
