Haha when has their ever been any proof that Utd were competing with Real for Ozil?
The press says what they say and create a story - but the fact is Bremen themselves have said they only received 1 bid before the sale - which was also from Real. Utd were 'linked' with Ozil - but so were Chelsea and Barca - does that mean Real beat them as well to the player?
Also, when last have Real beaten Utd to a player they truly wanted?
What big players besides Ronaldo have Utd sold that they didn't want to (whom they got 80 million for)?
Indeed Utd rarely goes for the hyped players anymore - young talent like Ozil does fit their mold though - but he's not the wizard that people who do not follow Bremen make him out to be. Whether he will reach his supposed potential and show the form that he does for Germany, or become another talent lost to Madrid's bench - remains to be seen.
thanks for saving me the typing for those pricks
I think Ozil's wages and valuation didnt sit well with United.... Fergie said he didnt see any value in the market and hinted next season he will buy a mature player (to replace Scholes) but says we have enough experience in the squad for this season and the young players are talented and hungry which I agree with
We as fans just wanted a decent signing.....Chicharito may be it...I love that kid
I taking Modric next season...only man that can replace Scholes for me... will be 25 next season can play CM and right behind a striker..and he's proved it in the prem.
And I scouting wingers too...even though I safe with Nani and Valencia
