Why are Man Utd failing to sign top european players.


Over the summer United found it difficult to sign quality players.Why do the top european players not want to join United.Man Utd are a top european club,regularly play in the champions league,play in a huge stadium with big support and can pay top wages.But still they fail to attract the best in europe.Why is this?

No one wants to play for Moyes. Look how he treats the player who's best suited to play a position where they're lacking. Kagawa rots on the bench while every only else lacks creativity at the #10 role.

@TittleTan I don't recall that many players that were some of the best in Europe at the time United signed them.

This discussion is totally irrelevant. Manchester United have signed some of the best players in Europe in recent years and throughout the last 15 years +

Well United under Ferguson were probably the best TEAM in the Premier League for a number of years meaning that they didn't need to sign all those big names they've been linked with. The chemistry and amount of interchangeable pieces in the squad mean that they didn't have to rely on such big names. Of course big names like Rooney and Van Persie are present within the team but compared to other sides such as Spurs and Liverpool who heavily relied on Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, United didn't have to rely on them in order to pick up results. Nevertheless, I don't think they've failed in signing big names or players that improved the squad on Ferguson at least. Van Persie and Kagawa signed last summer who were targets for a number of big sides and De Gea the season before that was touted and still is one of the best up and coming keepers. I think United don't need to go out and spend ridicolous money in the January transfer window but they need more options in the midfield especially to get back where they have been for years.

@jimbo1984 evra is only 32 and were saying he's done so I don't know what there is to suggest Baines could keep going at the top til he's 34/35. I agree on evra and I want united to sign Baines, if that has to be the price so get it, I just hope they can get 1 or 2 mids too.

@Doozers20 he would be no.1 left back for at least 5 seasons.. Evras display agaisnt Newcastle shows we need someone else.. Buttner is crap.. The price is irrelevant.. If you wanna win trophies you have to spend big money..

@jimbo1984 I agree but not sure about spending that much because of his age, I'd take him in a heart beat though

@Doozers20 we went for him but only offered 14 mill.. He's the best in his position in the league.. Would have been better spending 25 mill on baines than 28 on Fellaini who we don't need

@tatendatdawg what top player from a top rate European side did fergie sign?

  ·     ·     ·   5 years

Doozers20 · Man Utd fan   In reply

@jimbo1984 yeah I'd agree with that though I think he went for Baines, I'd have sooner spent a bit more on gundogan if possible but bender would be decent

@jimbo1984 who would you have liked United to sign?

@Posford I was dying to see Kagawa play, Moyes said he wasn't fit, in the last 2 months he has played far more regularly.

@Doozers20 he deserves to play more regularly and I know with a lot of non-United fans we can't understand why
