Lots of talk about us both (United) being after him... Since I don't follow the french league I've only seen youtube-videos of him and heard others say he looked really good when Monaco met Spurs Looks quite alright, but those youtube-videos can make me look like the new Messi. Any of you seen any of Monacos games?

No i have not.  United do seem desperate to add a defender and are supposedly pole to sign Van Dijk with him also keen on a move to a big club. I am a bit surprised by this.

They have the money and sway to get them too, only thing in our favour getting a player over Man U is that we are a London club, but in general you go head to head with Man U for a player you wont get him unless you overpay

Yeah that's the worry with them having a blank cheque book.

Although we did get Kante and I'm sure they would have liked him in their side too. Greizmann though I fear will end up there, would love him at Chelsea.

You have to remember they were after Pogba in the same window

Well that and we are top of the league and Man U are currently outside top 4, also I imagine Conte has some pull

So true! I had to unfollow several footy sites on Facebook because I got tired of never ending Untied rumours.

On the bright side, we've proven many times that we can convince players to join us instead if we really want to.

do you think maybe Kante was a backup incase they didnt get Pogba? 

I don't think so. Kante said Mourinho spoke to him personally and tried to convince him to join, but that he preferred Chelsea, because he had a good feeling after his talk with Conte.

Utd may have a lot of money, but if they dont finish top 4 then they are going to need every bit of that money and more to land stellar agents. I dont see the likes of Greizman or even Sanchez willing to go to a team that does not play champions league football. If they don't mind then i expect that Chinese teams also wont mind competing with united. 

This is not to say that united will never get top free agents - just that they will need all their money and influence.

You can never tell who will be great just by youtube videos but you can certainly identify players who are not and never will be all that.

They have Mourinho though and that makes a bid difference when going for players.

Not anymore tbh. Conte is starting to prove he's on a similar level to Mourinho, and if I was a neutral player I'd fancy playing under Conte more than Mourinho especially if I'm an attacking player (I know we're talking about a midfielder here, I'm just generalising) Mourinho's system is so rigid and strict, but with Conte it's more free flowing and high paced.

We'll struggle to compete against Mourinho when it comes to defenders for sure.

I would choose Bakayoko over Vidal and Verratti, if Bakayoko cost £40mil, Verratti £70mil and Vidal £56mil. He would add much needed strength to our midfield and ability to get past a player when we are under pressure.

Why? Conte's Juve and Chelsea teams defend better than any Jose team Inter and beyond.
