Morning, Manchester United fans
Transfer talk over David Raum and Lisandro Martinez has been spectacularly overshadowed by an amazing admission from United
CEO Richard Arnold.Arnold reckons the Red Devils have ‘burned through cash’ in WASTING £1BILLION – and rated last season a ‘f* nightmare’.
Meeting anti-Glazer protesters in a Cheshire pub, he savaged Ed Woodward’s reign, which ended in February.
Arnold said: “We’ve blown through an enormous amount of money.
“We spent a billion pounds on players, we spent more than anyone in Europe.
“You can’t go to our training ground and go ‘show me where that billion pounds is here’.”
On the gossip front, the Red Devils are said to be rivalling Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle and West Ham for Hoffenheim’s Germany left-back Raum.
And United are reportedly vying Arsenal in the race for Ajax centre-back Martinez.
It’s claimed the Gunners have already had a £25million bid for the Argentine ace rejected.
Finally, United will offer clubs a ‘try before you sign’ policy before loaning out starlets.
It means those clubs AND the Old Trafford youngsters would have a few weeks to see if they think the temporary switch would be right for them.
