thats why teams would accept these transfer fees. with that type of money, you can pick up a pretty good chunk of players at a lesser value.

Platini against Real Madrid's transfer movies. Lol what's he going to do, make a transfer cap?


I wonder where the hell Real Madrid got all this money, especially during a recession.

Yea I heard Robben, Sneijder + Cash for Ribery but then again why would Ribery want to go to United, I mean Tevez is all but gone, Van Der Sar is going to retire after next season, their midfield got exposed in the CL final I just don't see a good reason why anyone would want to go to a team that just lost their best player, all of a sudden Man U don't look so mighty after all without CR7 in that lineup.

If that's his goal then yes, go right ahead but if you want to win trophies next season then i would have serious questions about united for the next few years unless they make some serious upgrades and they way United play doesn't suit his style, atleast I don't think I mean just look how great Rooney is for England but yet United still wants to use him basically as a midfielder.

yeh Rooney is wasted on the wings but who knows maybe they will finally be smart and put him in front.

They buy a winger or two, and Rooney and Berbatov upfront and United is fine.

They still have a strong midfield and world class strikers and defense.

Vidic and Ferdinand all of a sudden will turn bad?

Rooney and Berbatov all of a sudden will suck?

Anderson wont get better???

Ok. United isn't a 'declining team' like you are pretending it is, and with the Ronaldo money, even if they only spend 20 million of it, they will be able to find a suitable enough replacement.

There defense is solid as a rock no doubt abut that but I think Ronaldo made alot of those "strong midfielders" look better then they really are cause they had lanes to open up and do what they please because Ronaldo had so much of the attention on him but we will see, alot of things can change from now till the start of the season.

ok you think wrong then, because the United midfielders are just as strong when Ronaldo doesn't play-that's right he doesn't play all the time, and even just with Park playing on the right instead United are just as dangerous and the midfield looks just as strong.


Anderson will get much better. He's only like 21. 94 million Euros is more than enough to buy a winger to replace Ronaldo, even 2 wingers to replace Ronaldo that would allow Rooney to move up top and form a partnership with Berbatov.

Losing Tevez as well as Ronaldo though, you are right that does hurt the team, but United have 94 million euros to replace them, they will be fine

The thought of Man Utd being "just as strong" without Ronaldo

Well Rooney was played on the left because of his work ethic, and the fact that if played up front, there would have been no space for Tevez or Berbatov.

United need 3 players to become the best team in europe.
Striker-Perhaps David Villa, we need a pacy goalscorer to complement Berba up front. Or even better, Benzema.

Winger-Unfortunately, neither Park or Nani are cut out to be a first choice player at united. Ribery would be superb, but he may be overpriced.

Midfielder- If Hargreaves doesn't return as strong as he was, which i fear won't happen, then we need to go after a big strong athletic midfielder. I like Anderson, but he's not aggressive enough to partner Carrick. Obviously Fletcher and Carrick should start, but I think a 3rd player sitting behind these two would be needed. Hopefully if hargreaves returns fully fit then this won't be needed.

2009/10 Lineup:
GK: Foster
LB: Evra
CB: Ferdinand
CB: Vidic
RB: O'Shea
DM-Hargreaves
CM-Fletcher
CM-Carrick
RW-Ribery
LW-Rooney
ST-Benzema/Berbatov

For home games, drop one of the 3 midfielders, and play Benzema and Berbatov up front.

Would be crazy expensive though.

Eh, it's pretty evenly split between Liverpool and United.
