    Mourinho always wanted to play with Rooney and thinks he can get the best out of him but then he felt that way about Falcao

    Couldn't be put better than this!

    I think Rooney still has a role to play. He is the best playmaker we have. He is finished as a striker. He played well in the last few games last season when Rashford became the main striker. He also played very well at the Euros except for the last game.

    Good for him. Has to prove himself before coming back.

    Btw, Zlatan confirmed it:

    Zlatan Ibrahimović ‏@Ibra_official 2h2 hours ago
    Time to let the world know. My next destination is @ManUtd

    time to try him out in Fifa 16.

    You dont need Rooney to score goals anymore, you need him to make your team play well.

    My thoughts on Zlatan coming to United are positives. Who will benefit the most will be our youngsters. Zlatan could be with us for at least 2 seasons. The likes of Martial, Rashford, Lingard etc. will learn so much from him leading the line. Ibra has the physical presence in the box we've been missing lately, the killer attribute that turns to gold and he's fearless, doesn't give a shit about the defenders that will be going up against him. He can easily pass that down to our youths.

    Some fans might say him arriving at United is a bad move especially for Rashford but it'll benefit him so much. Rashy is only 18. If Zlatan stays for 2 years, he'll be 20. We've already seen what Marcus has to offer and what he can do and is our future. So with the 2 years being lead by Ibra, he could potentially become even better. IMO, if we had signed a young world class striker say Morata, then that would hinder the development of Rashford. Jose knows what he's doing hence resigning Marcus because Jose knows he has so much potential and will be world-class striker. Same goes with Martial.

    Its a great move. Martial is a left winger and apart from Zlatan there is no competition for Rashford.

    Zlatan
    Martial-Rooney-Mkhi

    Sign Matuidi and James, title challenge.

    Yes, we need Rooney. Just like we needed Bosnich when the only other option was Taibi. We need an actual midfielder and Rooney to be shipped to China. Can't see that happening, so I seriously hope he'll find some motivation to play. With Mourinho and Zlatan bringing some winning mentality to the squad.

    Real Madrid pulled out of Pogba race.

    At this point in negotiations, the basic transfer fee for Pogba is understood to start at around £85m (€100m).

    However, when taking into account add-ons and bonuses related to the success of the player and the club - as well as Raiola's fee - the total amount United could pay for Pogba's transfer could reach over £105m (€123m).

    This is not including the player's contract, which is expected to comfortably exceed £65m, were the club to pay him a basic salary of £250,000 per week on a five-year deal.

    These numbers are ridiculous and it is only for a single player. Is it worth it? I don't think so. We could have gotten 3-4 quality players in that price. How will Man U handle this in the long run with the ongoing debt?

    They can easily afford it but it's a really bitter pill to swallow since you let him go for free

    Real Madrid apparantly have egg on their face too as their b team was offered the chance to sign him, the b team manager went to Perez all excited saying 'we can have Paul pogba for just €100k' and Perez told him 'come back when he costs a hundred million' (H)

    When Pogba walks on the field for us for the first time at Old Trafford, the cameras should zoom on Ferguson in the stands. When Pogba left Cleverley was paid 70k a week, Ashley Young 120k. Juve signed him and offered 23k a week.

    That money is overkill, not worth it. He is good but his impact won't be as high as Bale or Ronaldo who were bought for cheaper.

    Yeah but the market is inflated. 100m players will become normal very soon.

    I so not see him as a top 5 player, maybe not even top 10. He also plays for that degraded Serie A.
