    Arsenal fans can’t talk, we paid 30M for Mustafi, 30M for a teen CB, and could pay 60M for Zaha, who isn’t worth that.

    Alderweireld, De Ligt, Inter Milan CB's, Varane probably wouldn't be 80M and I'm not sure Koulibaly would be either. They all start at 100M and go down.

    Maguire will now constantly be compared to VVD and expect to have the same impact, which he won't.

    Toby is 30 years old. Utd want younger.

    The others you mentioned aren’t available. Varane isn’t joining Man U and Koulibably is quoted at over 100M.

    Don’t forget Utd paid 55M for Bissaka. That straight away dictates the market. You go for a more experienced and more established English defender, you’ll have to pay much more than 55M.

    United have overpaid for Maguire, but they can afford to and he'll improve them a lot.

    The market is crazy, everyone is paying ott.

    We paid 30M for a teen, bidding 25M for a LB who plays in a league that is comparable to league 1. Might end up paying 60m for Zaha, when he’s probably worth closer to 40M.

    It does boil down to whether Maguire will work out as United's VVD or not.

    Does he have to be Utds VVD or does he just have to help them get top 4?

    Can VVD even back up what he done last season? Doubt it.

    People are still living in 2012 with their valuations and understanding of the market.

    United signed Ferdinand in 2002 for £30m, PL TV revenue was £1.2bn then, now it's £9bn with this new deal.

    People need to catch up

    I understand the markets inflated and VVD set the tone for CB's but Harry Maguire is miles off VVD, miles.

    You'd just look at the market and see someone like Hummels go for 35m Euros who's a waaaay superior CB, even though, granted, much older and many highly talented ones that have an unknown ceiling such that Maguire for 80m is odd.

    VVD was obvious to become a monster. Maguire reall isnt.

    You look at markets like the Bundesliga and probably get Tah for 40m who's even younger and has a higher ceiling whilst playing on a similar level. It's just the English overhyping.

    But as I said, if money isn't an issue, he's a good buy.

    Tir Na Nog In Big Trouble If He Speaks

    Maguire is an English ball-playing CB who hasn't even reached his prime yet. If United have no problem paying the fee and he helps improve them as a team then the money won't be an issue.

    So will Bale join a club at his level like Palace or Watford or will he rot in the reserves at Madrid and milk his contract?

    There's more to a players cost than their talent.

    Thinks Jenkinson is Arsenal level and Bale is Palace level.

    English players cost more, you’re not telling us anything new.

    Tah is a good shout, but Utd want somebody who’ll come in straight away and perform, Tah will need time to adjust to the league.

    Nationality, the league they play in, international status etc.

    Never said Jenkinson was starter material for Arsenal. Said he played well in the limited ganes he was given by Emery with the exception of when he played wing back against Palace.

    Bale has been dreadful in like 90%, of matches for Madrid. That's why Zidane and Madrid fans want him out.

    British media are going ape **** about this and paintingg Zidane as the bad guy because they cant face up to that their media darlin wasn't as good as they made him out to be.
