Rashford to be given the number 10, leaving the number 19 shirt available. Bonucci currently plays in 19? Ok, I'm just thinking out loud. I don't really see Marcus being given the #10 yet, nor do I think we will go for Bonucci. But I would certainly take him at Utd. Born leader and could be fantastic, particularly in the middle of a back three. No credible reports of us being interested though?
On a side note; with Kohler signing with us (yet another sponsor! ) I keep thinking about sponsors helping to pay wages (e. g. with Ronaldo to Juventus, if rumours are to be believed) . I recall a while back there were rumours suggesting Adidas might help Utd pay wages when we were initially after Pogba, I think? It makes sense financially - Addidas or Chevrolet would benefit from having more big names at Utd, furthering their brands. Of course, sponsors do contribute to transfers anyway, albeit indirectly by the very nature of paying large sums to sponsor the club. What I am talking about is Adidas, for example, approaching Utd and saying "we would like X player at Utd due to their world-wide appeal, if you are interested? and we would pay X toward wages". Or if Utd would approach their sponsors in a similar fashion. Does anyone know if this (sponsors directly helping fund deals or wages) actually happens or is just paper talk?

Ed002 but be able to clarify things on this one. I remember a while back he mentioned something about Adidas potentially trying to play a part in moving Messi (an player sponsored by Adidas) to one of their major clubs, which at the time were Chelsea, Bayern and RM I believe but obviously never came to fruition. I may be wrong here but maybe someone can help because there was something along the lines of that! Hope this helps guys.

{Ed002's Note - No one will be paying the wages of Manchester United players.}
