Getting so damn bored of the De Jong saga, so many contrary reports of ' he wants to join and he doesn't ', I think we should step away and look at Ruben Neves, Prem proven and dominated us at Old Trafford last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop reading the reports then.
If he signs he signs if he doesn't he doesn't.
But I'm quite sure they will have a plan b if required.
It appears the manager wants fdj and must feel like he can help pull it off but who knows.

Ken, I think the club needs to set a deadline with Barcelona for de Jong or simultaneously work on bringing in an alternative with the view that if both deals work out then so be it; the club brings in two quality midfielders.

Like you say, these things could be happening anyway but how would we know?

09 Jul 2022 14:35:19
Are you sure there is a plan B Ken?

09 Jul 2022 15:02:07
I would think so spenno.
But I'm not sure how could I be.

Or, drag it out as long as possible, then say to the fans, we tried but the bad boys of Barcelona messed us about. Thereby saving £70m which they can take out in dividends in January.

09 Jul 2022 17:14:03
I think we’re being optimistic in the extreme if we think that there is a Plan B. I’d have thought that the club would have sounded out de Jong firstly and got a cast iron guarantee that he would join before pursuing him for such a long time. It seems that from the beginning, sound bites were coming from various quarters that he wanted to stay with Barcelona. And why wouldn’t he? We’re a bit of a shambles to be truthful.

09 Jul 2022 17:28:00
And reports coming out of Spain is that he's rejected the move anyway. Plan B might be James Garner.
Tbh, I would rather we got a DM instead.

09 Jul 2022 19:58:49
Frankie isn't coming. not now after those comments. i just hope they've got a plan b for midfielders because if United go into the Brighton game with mcfred. god help us.

09 Jul 2022 20:28:18
Woukd be relatively happy if we just sign Eriksen (boost midfield) Martinez (CB/ DM) and Malacia, plus promote a few youngsters such as Garner and Garnacho.

Though do think we need a striker.

10 Jul 2022 00:05:46
Please holy satan don't let Plan B be James Garner!
Ruben Neves gets my vote too out of the names doing the rounds. A step up for him, as opposed to SMS who is brilliant but for whom let's be honest, as the adorned Lazio captain it would be a massive downgrade at this moment in time.

10 Jul 2022 01:04:47
Why would it be a downgrade? Lazio can't win the title, probably won't be strong contenders for the top 4 either, he would be payed better at United, so he would at least be at the same level if he was to come.
I can't believe people say going from Lazio to United would be a downgrade, Jesus.

10 Jul 2022 06:49:08
Spenno, I too hope garner is not plan B, but unfortunately, its looking that way, and the Glazers get to save £70m in the process and that's the only language they understand. My money will be on someone who is a free agent who wouldn't need them to pay any big transfer fee.

10 Jul 2022 10:32:03
Trololo, every player we’ve moved for apart from an unknown leftback has opted against us or is hanging for yonks on committing. It’s a giant mess.

10 Jul 2022 10:46:45
It's abit harsh to judge Garner before he has been given a chance at the club. Whilst I understand the need for a top DM, we don't have the funds to go out and buy player after player.

Perhaps under the guidance of EtH, he might blossom into a top player.

10 Jul 2022 18:18:08
By all means give Garner a chance. But he’s never played at an elite level before so I’d seriously temper the notion that he’s going to hit the ground running and rip the league up.

10 Jul 2022 22:14:52

We don’t play at an elite level so should be fine. Will be good to see Garner given a chance, people want youth to be given a chance then when they are they whine and moan we are giving youth a chance and not buying a shiny new player.

Still think we will get Frenkie, doubt we will get Frankie.

11 Jul 2022 09:56:14
Spenno, who exactly do you mean? Nunez, who went to a clearly better team atm? De Jong, where we still don't know what will happen, and plays for one of the top teams? Or Ajax players, that would come by all the reports, if we figure out a deal with their club?
I don't see players from "lower tier" clubs avoiding us. Sure, we might be a mess, but saying that leaving Lazio for United would be a downgrade is nonsense.
