Much Ado about Nothing!

Much Ado about Nothing!

It seems that the drama surrounding the transfer of Phil Jones from Blackburn to United is all but done and dusted.

As well as the implication that Blackburn wanted to hike the price up from the figure of £16.5 million United wanted to pay, there was also the added problem of Blackburn believing that United hadn`t played everything by the book.

It seems that Rovers felt United had been tipped off about the buy-out clause and were contemplating taking matters further.

But, with no complaint registered, after realising that United`s later bid was higher than an initial bid by Liverpool, it seems the problem has all but gone away.

Great to hear is what we say!

What I'm hearing is we have hit a compromise.. Us wanting 25 and you wanting to pay 16.. that £20.5m will be the figure.. even though it will be "undisclosed" imo..

Question. If Manchester United have done nothing wrong. The clause of £16 million is rock solid. Then why didn't they hold firm at £16 million, allow the FA to sort it out and rather then fork out a further £5 million? We all know that a) Jones was tapped up b) United had prior knowledge of the clause in Jones contract which defies confidentiality rules/laws and c) Fergy spoke to Jones before a other offer was made. If it was any other team their would have been heavy sanctions and it would have been laid into in the papers/media, but because it's Manu and Fergy, it's completely ignored. Who says Premier League football is a fair competition with even rules and punishments...

United have no money to spend ehh? It looks like we will be throwing some cash around. Hope we get Young and De Gea as well.
