Is Sancho a good player to begin with? Never seen him. Nice video.

Clearly talented but also a bit lazy/egotistical, will be interesting to see how he evolves/integrates into a young United team with several players of similar issue

I would not gamble on him and certainly not at those fees, he was even getting benched at Dortmund due to his antics. Looking at his career, you can see he has a bit of mercenary about him. The good is that he is close with Rashford which may lend itself to better integration but we'll see

What mercenary you see in him, I mean compared to most other players in the game?

4th club in 6 seasons - The controversial manner in which he left Watford for City, again when he went to Dortmund and now back to United. His moves have always been involving money that have left clubs angry. At least City recouperate 15% of that sale to United and BVB make out handsomely - the latter of course has now become more of a feeder club like Pozzo's Udinese used to be

Sancho is overrated as fuck.

Similar to Sterling and Coman. The category of "I've no idea what his position is, but let's hype the fuck out of him just because".

Serviceable for the right club, problematic for almost everyone else.

He was 15 when he moved to City. If there ever was any controversy there it cannot in any way be the kid's fault.

This is a huge business. Whenever its boiled down to some psychological traits of kids/young guys it's 99% way off.

This. And his move to Dortmund was obviously mostly motivated by getting playing time at high level. BVB is known to be a good place for young players, they are good at developing them, as we can see.

Yeah, and how usual it is to count clubs a player was a member of before 18? ManUtd is pretty much his second club. Or 3rd if you wanna troll ManCity.

To be completely fair, he has achieved his objectives of a top 4 finish and even clear 2nd place. Chelsea and Liverpool spending most of last season being retards certainly helped him but you could say the same about us against Pirlo's juve. Even if your opponents shoot themselves in the foot, you still need to take advantage, and they did. The less said about Spurs the better.

What Jose says is fucking ridiculous, about "what is a failure for him is a success for others". Well yea mate, Solskjaer was a novice taking over a rebuilding phase while you're one of the most successful coaches in history being paid eleven times what OGS earns.

Having said this, I'll eat my fucking hat before giving Solskjaer an ounce of credit as a manager.

Hats stopped being edible since 1965, why do people still use this phrase?

good read, I think Barca can register new players and Messi as well in the end, just curious how they would do it, selling stadium name right?

Interesting to see who Real will want to replace Varane/Ramos. They need to buy new CB. Militao hasn't convinced me yet and to lose both Ramos and Varane in one window is a bit harsh.

Not many CB's out there who will be up to the task.

De Vrij, Skriniar or De Ligt.

Guess who is most likely to leave.

I didn't want to jinx it but yeah I'm afraid Skriniar will be the one that leaves. I don't think Real finds De Vrij a Real Madrid player, Juve doesn't want to sell De Ligt so yeah 1+1=2.

doubt that they would buy another high profile CB, Alaba/Militao will start, they would want someone cheap for backup
