We meet West Brom today, however, before we get into that, I’d like to discuss this rumour about Özil favouring Manchester United as his next destination.
Well, I don’t know what to say really.
Manchester United do look like a winning team at the moment and any star worth his salt (like Ozil is sometimes) will want to be part of the project Mourn’rinho has going up over there. This, however, puts Juan Mata’s position in question.
Can we do a swap? Will Mata want us? Can and will we buy an even better player? It’s left to be seen.
It’ll be a double whammy hit on our finances though if we lose Ozil and Alexis on free transfers when we could have made nearly or over a hundred million (£100m) from the sale of both players. Being the business person that I can sometimes be, I would have sold them to whoever and whichever club came up with a reasonable fee frankly.
Even Manchester City.
You say we’d have made Manchester City stronger?
LOL. Like they aren’t stronger already. Just look at their strike force.
And Manchester United? Lukaku is scoring goals for fun.
Anyways, my hope is that we get the better end of the deal by keeping both players and losing out on all that money. I also hope we’ll replace them with almost like for like players. It’ll be sad if we don’t.
