$70M for a Real Madrid bench warmer? Woodward must be insane, Suarez, Neymar, Bale are worth that money not a guy that Zidane didn't think was good enough to take an out of form Benzema out the starting 11. Morata is worth $30M max no more. Why are we paying over the odds and teams like Juventus keep finding very cheap, good players? Its insane.

In the membrane.

Few questions:

1.) Are you worried that the amount we spend on morata would put us in some form of financial jeopardy.

2.) Are you able to put forward players better than morata at the same value because i hate to break it you, 70m wouldn't get suarez, bale or neymar in this current market.

3.) If no to 1 and 2 are you just afraid of being mocked by your peers (whether it be at the school, workplace or old peoples home) if morata flops and we've wasted that amount of money.

He maybe just thinks 70 mil for a player who played 90 minutes 5 times last season is a lot .

14 Jun 2017 19:10:53
I agree it is a lot but don't see the point in complaining about it, everyone knows when man utd go for a player the price escalates to unreasonable proportions in most instances.

But it is what it is, like i said i doubt well be able to find a similar or better quality player for less money. You either leave it and trust rashford and martial to do the job which i wouldn't mind or you put the money down and hope morata does the business.

Fair questions and points DSG. £70m won't cause us any problems whatsoever and if Jose thinks he'll do a job then he'll pay it, no matter what anyone's else thinks. There aren't many out there who are either available, better, want to come here or wouldn't cost a whole lot more than him. Who cares what people think or say? We have always been disliked and people have a go no matter what happens, so f*ck them.

As long as we address all the problem areas in the team/ squad, and it is done within our means, I guess what they cost doesn't matter to us. If over paying on a player means other areas are neglected then it becomes a problem.

14 Jun 2017 19:42:54
Is the £70million up front or is that figure including lots of achievement add ons like Martial?

14 Jun 2017 19:51:03
Remanutd, completely agree with your opening post. Morata is not good enough nor is he worth that money. I don't usually care about the money side but IF reports are true then we are having our pants pulled down once again.

Ive been vocal about not wanting Morata and hope I'm proved wrong but I cannot see at all how he will be a good signing.

14 Jun 2017 19:55:49
Remember Van nistelroy? 19m and had to wait a year because of his injury. Look how that turned out. Rio's fee at the time : countless examples of high fees Morata if he comes, might just prove to be a bargain the way prices are going up, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Grimisnot dead- a very good point.

14 Jun 2017 20:03:20
Fair point DSG why do we even care about the fee?

Your dead right the likes of Suarez, Bale and Neymar would cost double that. Everton want £100m for Lukaku, it's well over £80m for Belotti Monaco want over £100m for an 18 year old kid with only 6 months of professional football behind him. The money in the game has gone crazy.

If we want him then that's what we've got to pay we'd all be up in arms if we didn't sign anyone!

If the money isn't going on players it's only lining the pockets of the Glazers get it spent!

The only relevant question should be will he improve our team? If Jose thinks he will then what's the problem?

We've had this stupid debate before with Pogba and we saw last night just what a talented player he is!

I agree with Brendan if we're overspending at the expense of neglecting other positions or players then it may be a problem but I've seen no evidence that we're going to stop any time soon.

Let's just be happy the Club are prepared to spend money and not keep it for themselves.

In the past it has sometimes been said that getting into a national team has been easier than getting into our team . At the moment it is easier for morata to play cf for Spain than Madrid. If cr7 had been injured for say 3/ 4 months I suspect morata would have scored well over 30 goals and bearing in mind that you always have to overpay for a quality striker 70m would seem about right.

14 Jun 2017 20:07:10
I personally don't know much about Morata and I haven't seen him play that often tbh but I imagine the club and the manager know what they are doing .

That £90 million for pogs ain't looking that expensive anymore 😂.

14 Jun 2017 20:22:01
The prices currently are ridiculous for Strikers, but that needs to be tampered with the fact that currently these are guessed figures and may differ in reality. Also there appears a dearth of quality strikers and that also increases the price.
On Morata I have tried to look at his play over the past few years (from videos online. yes i Know! ) and he looks more and more like a Mourinho striker. Seems qhysically strong, quite tall, seems to be good with his back to goal to bring players on to him, good in the air. He is skilful as you would imagine from a Spansih player but he does seem well suited to rthe PL.
Lets hope this one goes through.

It is a lot of money. But so is every other transfer.

Couldn't care less what he costs. Good player IMO and a very good signing.

14 Jun 2017 21:07:39
People do tend to get upset what a player cost or gets paid depending who the player is.

14 Jun 2017 21:45:57
Totally agree Angel. The money is nuts no doubt. players can't be judged against their price tag its what they do for the team. Trevor Francis first million pound player. Never scored 20 in the league but scored the winner In a European cup final for forest .

14 Jun 2017 22:02:26
Yeah Ken. I used get a bit bogged down in price and wages but honestly I don't really care. I only hope that there is a good balance to the squad and we can push on and win more things.
