Talks ongoing for Murphy. How f***ing much is there to talk about?

What concerns me is that in recent years all of our signings have been telegraphed weeks if not months in advance. The only name I can remember signing out of the blue was De Jong, in the window he signed there was really no rumour or anything that he was on our radar. Other than that there is always the usual somewhat credible sources (Caulkin etc.) putting the names out there weeks before they end up signing. And now there's just nothing, nobody even worth making a thread about  :lol:

Just had a look at the Cieran Clark thread. He was first linked by Caulkin on August 1st, signed on August 3rd. Sels, Murphy, Yedlin & Diame also seemed to be signed within a short period of time from being linked.

Man United haven't had this much of a squad overhaul since 1958

Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

How the f*** can you justify a £25m price tag for someone who clearly isn't first choice, having played 12 games last season. Bloody mental.

If anyone needed further illustration of how f***ing mad the market has gone or explanation why so few premier league players are moving, then there it is clear as daylight.

Because he's under contract, they can justify what ever they like.

They can ask, even demand, whatever they like for a contracted player but justify it ?

Looks like Everton are hoping other clubs are going to be f***ing idiots on prices just like they have been.

Transfers didn't seem to be a problem last summer.

We weren't signing premiership quality players.
If that's the case we're even deeper in the s*** considering they're now some of our key players. :lol:

Of course they can man, all they need to justify it is the fact he's ours and we can sell him for whatever we like.

This is all very naive.

We could have probably got him for £15m in January, since then prices have gone up. That's what happens if you sit around trying to be clever buggers.

Aye, Kyle Walker and James McCarthey for a combined £75m :lol: They're both inflated beyond an already crazy market.

He'll sit on the bench for the rest of his contract for that asking price.

I wonder what the actual selling price would be? We might be looking at £13m which is what Everton paid for him a few years back, they are obviously going to ask for a daft price in response.

If they really don't want to sell we should look for someone else. Except I have a feeling Rafa really wants us to do this deal.

Man this is depressing.

Rafa did say he really wanted to bring in British players, but these prices on them are just foolish.

How can we possibly spend £25 million on McCarthy man. We are so screwed.
Isla will apprently be a wing back in QPRs 3-5-2, so will have a chance to do some things in the final third, while being listed as a defender! ($$$$$$$).

Aluko will be playing upfront in place of Long, but is listed as a midfielder! ($$$$$$$).

I thank you  :smug:

 NUFC have resurrected interest in Sheyi Ojo but only as a loan deal. Still hoping for progress on Jacob Murphy - it's not one or other.

I wonder if we're considering playing one of them through the middle in the number 10. Its the sort of position that a winger could play in.

Everton are just looking at the market and setting the price accordingly...in that regard, 25mil isn't really that unreasonable.

The way to get these prices to drop is for clubs to stop paying them. Which is difficult when the likes of City and Chelsea have no problem dropping 25mil on bench players.

Not really simple though. Clubs are under a lot of pressure to ensure they stay in the Premiership. Once one club starts paying, that pressure ramps up.
People generalise too much.
