I realise everyone is very giddy about Sanchez and he is undoubtedly a very good player but I worry about the implications.

It’s not my money and we are a rich club but if the reported salary numbers are anywhere near correct I’m not sure how other players will feel. This isn’t Messi or a Ronaldo we are talking about. Whilst he is very good I think some are getting over excited and elevating him to a level that he is not at.

We still don’t know how much his heart was set on City, l if and when he does sign it will be interesting to see what he has to say and how committed he looks. His attitude at Arsenal this year has been pretty poor and I just hope this isn’t going to be a Di Maria situation.

Of course he may arrive and bang in 25 goals and I’ll look silly but I’m not sharing the euphoria right now. We shall see.

Went does that not surprise me.

Why does that not surprise me?

Hes not Ronaldo or Messi but he's in that group just below. I imagine every player at united will be looking forward to play with him.

Plus his merch will shift well all over the world. New football rights deal coming up and even more money will be available.

Lets all stop picking holes and enjoy it. As long as his salary is not coming out of my bank, I couldn't care less!

I think the figures banded about are hysterical and extreme clickbait.

One thing i highly doubt the glazers would do is jeopardise their "investment" or at least create a financial headache with wages.

Most likely the deal will be heavily beefed up with image rights and cup a soup sponsors.

Simple way to see it is by next season, ibra, micky and mata will be out (pretty hefty wages) and sanchez, maybe ozil will come in, so any increas in weekly wage expenditure should not be too cumbersome.

Sanchez or Ronaldo. Or both . Ronaldo for me every time 😆😆.

For me sanchez is the biggest and most meaningful signing we are making since sir alex left to get us back to our winning ways. Our young team can learn a lot from him and i am sure he will raise the game of the players arround him as well.
if we make sanchez our highest paid, i can only consider de gea to be given such a contract.

Hi guys, long term reader, first time post.

Not too sure why people are worrying about Sanchez potential salary. Utd can afford it anyways but if HM is going the other way that'll be fair wedge we're saving by not paying him. Won't completely cover Sanchez' wages but it'll take chunk out of it so not as straight forward as "oh we're paying him 500k a week"

Have to disagree AJH. Whilst I agree in part about your fears of another Di Maria situation, I think the circumstances are very different. If Sanchez doesn’t want to come then all he has to do is reject us and wait for city in the summer. But he clearly has interest in us so I think we should not be so surprised about that.

The second point I wanted to make is that this could be one of our most important or pivotal signings to date. It seems that superlatives have been thrown round about city and how the will build a dynasty blah blah blah. Yet we are taking a player from them that has been nailed on for 6 months. It is showing the football world we are coming back and that sends a strong message to potential new signings in the summer when it comes to joining us or city. The media are bad mouthing us because they are scared and sense that the sleeping giant is waking from 5 years of under achievement. We are still 4 players short but we are definitely on the up. So I think we should stop worrying about it’s or buts and hypotheticals and just ENJOY this sort of signing which we all crave. I for one am relishing the chance of seeing a player of sanchez’s ilk grace the Old Trafford turf. And may be daft but if it were to be between current Ronaldo and Sanchez - it’s a Sanchez for me every day of the week and weekends too.

It would be different from Dimaria situation simply because dimaria hadn't played in epl before but sanchez has and very well at that.

19 Jan 2018 11:18:20
Fully agree Shaw!

19 Jan 2018 11:20:07
I meant Park sorry mate! 😂.

19 Jan 2018 12:00:28
I really do love the shafting City part of this and he is EPL proven: I was merely suggesting the salary might cause unrest and he isn’t the Messiah. I’m looking forward to him joining and hope he is desperate to impress. We have quite a few younger players so an older head will be useful.

I read an article suggesting that he has always kept himself to himself so the sulking suggestions could well be exaggerations.

19 Jan 2018 12:12:27
Haha no worries Danny 😂.

One of the things Sanchez will bring is the determination to shut the other team down in their own half. That's an area we have been lacking, especially when we're trying to close out games.

19 Jan 2018 18:33:49
right now it will be exciting times. however, offering a 29 year old a 4 and half year contract with week wage that ranges 300-500k just sounds too much. we may be in same boat as we were with Rooney and possibly Schweinsteiger and struggle to offload him in a few years time to make way for someone else.
