    Ashworth - Compensation agreed

    Don't know if there is truth in this but apperently we have come to an agreement with them for 15 million - makes him the most expensive sporting director ever.

    If this is truth, I would think that means we're almost done with our replacement as we've always said we'll be holding hte line till we have our new person in.

    I saw a fan account that has been pretty good with their rumours.

    Personally, I'd like us to hold the hardline till after summer.

    Is this the fella, Jammy. I hadn't seen this lad's post and he's one of the ones who seems to have a genuine inside track on what's going on in the club.

    Wasn't him.

    That is now the 3rd different amount I've seen in 2 days

    According to Telegraph though Man Utd have only offered 2 million. . . that's less than we paid to Brighton, they must be having a laugh.

    2 mil!? 😆

    What a bunch of idiots 🤣🤣

    I read somewhere that Shearer was saying Ashworth is close to joining ManU.

    But seriously 2 mil!? They want him and offer peanuts. Good luck.

    The 6m to cover the PSR short fall makes sense + the further installments is smart business.

    We aren't the Cabbage patch club anymore, we don't need to sell and won't just roll over and let the Fraudies tickle our belly.

    They didn't want to do business with us for Henderson or Lingard, they set the precedent in terms of the professional relationship.

    As you sow so shall ye reap Manc Bassas!

    Cough out or shut up. Ashworth can tend to his cabbages for another 18 months for all I care.
