Covering: De Jong deal stalls, Lisandro Martinez personal terms agreed, Cristiano Ronaldo’s £210m offer, squad arrives in Melbourne, David Beckham coming to Netflix, plus lots more…
With every day that passes in this Frenkie de Jong saga, I edge closer to spotting my first grey hair.
The constant updates in the media are fucking tiresome and, at this stage, I just want to know when the deal will be done or if United plan to walk away from the negotiation table at any stage.
I’m 26 and really shouldn’t be going grey.
The deal to sign De Jong is ‘stalling’ if you believe Fabrizio Romano. Meanwhile, the Spanish media want you to believe the midfielder doesn’t want to join United, although The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell is of the opinion that De Jong is open to a switch to Old Trafford.
So many contradictions but my gut feeling is Ten Hag would know by now if De Jong has intentions to play for United. It would be ridiculous to spend all this time on the transfer and not end up with our priority target.
The PR department would be working in overdrive!
However, what people at United must realise is that the mood among the fanbase will get a lot worse if things don’t improve – and tensions are always intensifying, especially after the extremely disappointing season we’ve just suffered and the fact our owners are fucking parasites.

On a further note, I must add, that I am not just talking about new signings. It takes a lot more than that to run a football club properly.
