I think you mean bloating the market Carl. I put it down to the condemned meat sales and all the gas it gives off

It’s always been them inflating the market:
- Keane on £50k per week
- Rooney’s multiple pay rises every time he threatened to leave
- Pogba world record fee
- Sanchez’s ridiculous salary

And that’s just a few examples in recent years. Not to mention the occasions throughout their existence where they’ve required outside investment to buy players or drive their business.

Looking forward to watching Pogba’s inevitable contract re-negotiation coming up shortly.

They are now the club that has to attract players with over inflated salaries. It seems no badge is worth more than the next. Who knew?

Watch DeGea with the ball at his feet and it's debatable that Pep would want him ahead of Ederson.

Just read this now in the MEN re Sanchez:

"Yes, Sanchez is on an eye-watering amount of money, but this is the wide-eyed youngster who dreamt of walking out at Old Trafford and had Cristiano Ronaldo posters on his bedroom wall."

Ronaldo's 3 years older than him.

There might have been other reasons for that.

Fuck me, talk about rewriting history, they're bizarre. They'll lap it up though, to heal the pain of the 26 million a year that they're forgetting he's being paid.

He did idolise Ronaldo.

"The Brazilian one of course, known as ‘The Phenomenon’." quote from Sanchez when he was at Arsenal.

Already has it's own thread, but Pep revealing that we were offered Pogba and Mkihitaryan in January by their agent has to be one of the funniest stories in this thread!

Guardiola claimed he was invited to sign Pogba two months ago but it appears he was referring to the January window, particularly as he said Raiola also offered him Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined Arsenal that month.

Guardiola’s claim, if true, indicates Raiola was trying to engineer a move for Pogba even before the player lost his starting place. The first indication of problems between Pogba and Mourinho came when the player was withdrawn at Tottenham on 31 January. The France international is expected to start at City on Saturday.

Guardiola mentioned Pogba when asked about Raiola’s verbal attack on him. “I will answer him; I don’t understand why I am,” he said. “Finally, the people discover my secrets – a bad guy. I’m a coward. I don’t understand why I am a so bad guy. I never speak with him so his opinion [about me], I don’t know. But being a guy who two months ago offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us. Why?

“Why he offer? He was interested in Mhikitaryan and Pogba to play with us? So he has to protect his players and has to know he cannot bring the players to a guy like me, like a dog. And comparing a dog is bad. It’s not good. He has to respect the dogs.”

Pressed about Pogba, Guardiola said: “Pogba is an incredible player … A top, top player.”

City’s manager was sarcastic when asked what he thought of the offer. “I said no,” he said. “We don’t have the money enough to buy Pogba because he is so expensive. I’m surprised because I am a dog. He wants his players to come to here. So, no. No way.

“I am not a good guy. He deserves his players to play with better guys. But, he knows as well I am a top manager. Thank you.”

Shortly after Guardiola’s comments became public, Pogba posted a tweet which appeared to respond to the City manager. “Say what?” he wrote.

Raiola denied the conversation had taken place. “I never spoke to Pep Guardiola. I would not speak to him about players, I would speak to Manchester City. They are a fantastic club with a fantastic manager.”

What conversation? Raoila denied it took place, Pep said he never spoke with the guy. Clearly the offer was made via the club, not Pep.
