SAD NEWS!!!! Wayne Rooney's goodbye

Image
You can tell a lot about a man in the way he says goodbye. John Terry stage-managed his own send-off from Chelsea this weekend with all the subtlety and grace of a hippopotamus at the wheel of a forklift truck. Just as happened in Moscow in 2008, when he insisted on taking what he anticipated to be the Champions League winning penalty only to feel the ground slip from under him, the workings of hubris came back to cuff him resolutely round the ear. His tearful send-off after 26 minutes, through a guard of honour of his colleagues, was meant to serve as an appropriate full stop to a wonderful, stellar, trophy-strewn career. Instead it looked cheap and contrived, sending a shiver of distaste down the spine of many observers. Compare that to what happened to Wayne Rooney on Sunday. There was no marching off at 10 minutes pointedly to coincide with his shirt number. No phalanx of applause. Rather, starting his team's final league match of the season to ensure freshness in the legs of…

€98m!!! Griezmann edging closer to €98m United move

Image
Antoine Griezmann has given the clearest indication yet that he will join Manchester United this summer as Wayne Rooney prepares for what is likely to be an emotional end to his Old Trafford career when the club face Ajax in the Europa League final tomorrow. United are preparing to trigger the €98m release clause in Griezmann's contract with Atletico Madrid and the Frenchman last night claimed that negotiations over a move to Old Trafford were 60 percent complete. Asked on French television about the prospect of joining United, Griezmann admitted it was "possible" and said he expected his future to be resolved in the next fortnight. Griezmann is due to marry his fiancee, Erika Choperena, in Madrid this weekend and plans to go on honeymoon once France's games against Paraguay, Sweden and England next month are out of the way. United have been discussing the framework of a deal for Griezmann with third parties for months and are now close to signing the 26-year-old, w…

INCREDIBLE!!! WORLD RECORD BID.......Report: Man Utd launch world-record bid for PSG star

Image
Manchester United are reported to have made the first move to sign in-demand defender Marquinhos by lodging a £60m bid for the PSG star. Spanish newspaper Sport claim Jose Mourinho’s side have made an offer of €69.4million to bring the defender to the Premier League – a deal which would break the world-record fee ever spent on a defender if the deal were to go through. The current record actually belongs to PSG, who spent £50million to bring Marquinhos’ Brazil team-mate David Luiz to the club from Chelsea back in 2014. United are vying with Barcelona and Real Madrid to sign the versatile Brazilian star, who can operate either at the centre of defence in a flat four, as part of a three-man defensive unit, or as a right-back. Sport believes PSG are keen to keep hold of the defender, but United’s desire to spend huge money on luring him to Old Trafford means they will likely be swayed into the sale. Marquinhos, who has 17 caps for his country, joined PSG in a €31.4million deal from Roma i…

BAD NEWS!!! as Manchester United fans fear David De Gea's exit to Real Madrid is imminent as they react after star posts message on Twitter: 'Look what they did to Iker Casillas... stay and become a legend!'

Image
Although the Spanish giants remain coy over any transfer dealings, it is understood the club are hoping to wrap up the deal as soon as the window opens to avoid the saga of 2015. 
And de Gea's message to United fans on Twitter, after missing the 3-0 win over Middlesbrough in the last Premier League game of the season, has fuelled speculation from supporters. 
The three-time winner of the Sir Matt Busby award is adored by United fans and many took to Twitter to reply to the No 1's post.


Supporters fear the worst and want the Spain international to stay in the north-west and earn legend status at the club. Madrid stalwart Iker Casillas left the Spanish outfit to join Porto in 2015 after over 700 appearances at the club. 
The star's parents claimed he was forced out of Madrid by club president Florentino Perez and United supporters do not want de Gea to suffer the same fate.
One fan tweeted: 'Don't go to Madrid. Look what they did to Casillas. Stay here and become a legend…

$45.5million Signing for Man Utd as Mourinho Ready to Finally Agree $45.5million Signing for Man Utd

Image
Jose Mourinho watched former side Chelsea lift the title yesterday after winning their 30th PL game of the season. On the other hand, his Man United team finished 6th. After spending heavy cash on top quality players last summer, the Red Devils have finished no fewer than 24 points behind the champions and that is just not good enough. Jose needs to step up big time next season and is ready to splash more cash to further reinforce his squad this summer. If reports in the media are anything to go by then the former Blues boss is once again interested in Nemanja Matic. The Serbian international was linked with Man United last summer and even in the winter transfer window as well. Now, according to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, Mourinho is ready to finally secure his signature in a deal worth 35 million pounds ($45.4million). Matic was a key member of the Chelsea side that won the 2014-15 title under the management of Jose. He was also fantastic in this season’s title winning c…

"The idea that Manchester United have 108 million followers or fans in China alone for example - which is what this research purportedly showed - is patently ludicrous," says Nick Harris, editor of sports finance website SportingIntelligence.com.

GOOD NEWS OR BAD NEWS...WEDNESDAY IS FINAL!!!

Image
Even the most ardent opponent of Manchester United would acknowledge that the club has fans right around the world. But the statement that it has a global following of 659 million adults - out of a total five billion adults in the world - is still quite staggering. This is not just a number picked out of thin air, though. Manchester United used a market research company, Kantar, to carry out a worldwide survey. The company polled nearly 54,000 adults in 39 countries between June and August 2011. Some were surveyed face to face, but most answered questions online. It then extrapolated from these survey results to produce a figure for each of those 39 countries - and for the rest of the world - taking into account such things as the popularity of football in these countries, and whether players born in them had played for Manchester United in the past. Of the 659 million figure, Kantar says roughly half (325 million) live in the Asia Pacific region, 173 million in the Middle East and A…
