2015 Summer Transfer Thread


Recommended Posts

Manchester City are reportedly willing to pay £70m for Paul Pogba and make him the highest paid midfielder in the world with wages of £250k/week after tax.

They won't get him... Madrid will.

I doubt Bale is sold. Perez has crushed those rumors everytime. Unless he wants out he'll be there next season. Nordic probably is the odd man out honestly. But they could go in for Pogba, so would need to lose two. One won't be Bale though imo.

I'd say Barca more likely. Not sure where, but I remember reading Madrid weren't interested in Pogba.

Nah they are. Zidane confirmed it awhile back and he's been working Pogba ever since.

Hmm. It was Sky who reported they aren't interested. Only clubs with contact so far are City, Barca, and PSG.


Would be pretty surprised. Perez met with his agent last week ahead of the CL game in the RM hotel in Turin. I get the feeling Perez wants to deliver De Gea and Pogba this Summer, fill out the depth with some other signings (Danilo already done etc) and then ride out the rumored Winter transfer window ban.

Gareth Bale to Manchester United is almost a done deal, according to the Sunday Express journalist John Richardson.

Speaking on MUTV ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Juventus, Richardson claimed that the transfer is all but completed, with Bale’s treatment at the hands of the Madrid fans alleged to be the driving force behind the move.

‘I think it’s almost a done deal to be honest,’ he said.

‘I know somebody very close to Gareth Bale and the public are not hearing the real thing.

‘He’s very unhappy there and he’s unhappy with his treatment.’

Richardson’s claim was backed up by Telegraph journalist Mark Ogden, who agreed that a move is on the cards.

‘If I was a betting man and I had £50 spare to put on where he [bale] would go, I think he’d end up here this summer,’ he said.

‘I’ve just got this feeling that United want him, they’ve got the money to do it.

‘Bale’s domestic situation is that his girlfriend and his daughter are living back in the UK, and he doesn’t speak the language.’


Any deal for Bale would likely cost at least £80 million, but that fee is likely to be within United’s reach as they prepare to reap the financial benefits of their record-breaking kit deal with Adidas.

Earlier in the season influential Spanish newspapers connected to

Real didn't deem some of Bale's lack-lustre performances worthy of a merit mark while some angry supporters vandalised his car. Bale can now expect another torrent of abuse as he is singled out as the biggest villain of the club's Champions League demise.


Bale has struggled to learn Spanish and has found it difficult to embrace the Madrid way of life.


United also know that Real Madrid are desperate to land Old Trafford's outstanding keeper David de Gea.

De Gea has so far knocked back a new contract offer worth around £200,000 a week in the knowledge that he is wanted at the Bernabeu as the successor to Iker Casillas.

With still 12 months of his current contract to run United remain in charge of his destiny.

Although loathe to part with the Spaniard if it means losing De Gea in order to bring in Bale then it's something they would do.


Di Maria was ditched [by RM] once James Rodriguez, one of the stars of last summer's World Cup, was brought in along with Germany's Toni Kroos."
