Not long left now...
Despite my concerns about United's midfield and hope that they grab someone else, we've done some decent business so far.
Kagawa, RVP, Henriquez and Powell for a combined total of approximately £40M.
Still need more steel in midfield though.
How did you get to £40m DrPhil?
So man united didnt try to sign him this season?
We looked at levy's price last season and quite rightly told him where to go.
This season we didn't even bother and you had to sell for ten million less than last year!
As I said. Karma

It really smacks of sour grapes.
As a Spurs fan myself, happy to see him go abroad, even if that does mean a bit less money.
dr no said:TBH with all your recent snappy/irritated posts towards everyone else, labelling them childish or uninformed, while at the same time trying to convince us of your elation with being forced to sell your best player at a cut down price, your comments above appear more suitable to you.

Ferguson: We invest in youth, City pay silly money - FIFA.com
Why am I not allowed to take glee in spurs missing out on 10million extra - as revenge for Levy over charging us for Berbs. It's cause and effects. Evens up the universe.
Defo agree. We bedded in Chico two seasons ago and since then it's been more about Welbeck. Then Cleverly, Powell, Fabio and Rafael, Jones, Evans, Anderson, Smalling. All quite young
Sky News are saying spurs will get £30 million upfront plus another potential 8 million to come later.
Very good deal if true.

Think it was very bad SSN reporting he was sold for 23m£ yesterday, something that anyone with anything about then knew wasn't true. Oh dear I won't say I did say. Lol.
Aren't you missing the point though?
Everything Ferguson says there is contradicted by the van Persie deal; taken from the article:
Ferguson said that he was not going to be forced into a change of transfer policy because of losing out to their city rivals and would stick to investing in young talent while Abu Dhabi-owned City spent huge amounts on established players.
"We know City are going to spend fortunes, pay stupid money and silly salaries. We know that happens. We can't do anything about that," the 70-year-old told MUTV at the United player of the year dinner.
"We are not like other clubs who can spend fortunes on proven goods."
