  • we're back.

  • Welcome along to transfer.

  • It's all very leases from Manchester United is coming up.

  • We're live Old Trafford's Remember you can tweet the show at Sky Sports news news that hashtag trans fertile and there's plenty of other ways to get involved.

  • We start with the very latest on Bruno Fernandez is transferred to Manchester United has been pretty drawn out through this window, but we are edging closer to a conclusion.

  • Let's cross live to James Cooper is at Old Trafford for us and bring us of the day, later said.

  • But James before return our attention to transfer is we've got to start with that attack on United's executive vice chairman Ed Woodward's house last night by a group of fans.

  • Or what is the latest developments about what happened?

  • Well, first and foremost, thank goodness he wasn't there, neither with his wife or his two Children.

  • They were somewhere else, and we're party to that attack on their house last night that Cheshire police are investigating.

  • There was a mob of hooded Manchester United fans.

  • I put an inverted commas that say they're Manchester United.

  • Fans are not sure they represent most of the Manchester united fraternity.

  • But they threw fireworks trying to get in touch on intercom and then daubed paint and spray paint on the property as well.

  • So Cheshire police are investigating.

  • Clearly this criminal damage at stake there and Manchester United have basically said if anyone is found guilty of this, they'll be banned from the ground and they're waiting to see what the police say about it.

  • I think it's really interesting on this one.

  • Clearly, there are a lot of frustrations about Manchester United's worst season in the premiere league for 30 years.

  • Not not easy for Manchester United fans.

  • We've seen toxic songs here at Old Trafford last couple of weeks about killing and burning Glazer family and Ed Woodward himself.

  • I don't think most Manchester United fans have cried to that.

  • Certainly don't subscribe to the attack last night certainly online.

  • A lot of people condemning that while saying they are still frustrated with the direction that the club is going in and I think you know, to even suggest that Manchester United might have cooked this up themselves to get some nice PR Fred Woodward and public sympathy is absolutely outrageous suggestion almost as outrageous as the attack itself last night, and I think it just shows you the kind of discontent that's bubbling here at Manchester United but clear last night.

  • Despicable stuff.

  • People overstepping the mark and putting a real shadow over the Manchester Darby tonight at the Etihad Stadium.

  • Yeah, and obviously, Woodward involved with brokering this Fernandez deal.

  • Let's get the latest on that.

  • It seems to be moving quite fast after weeks of waiting.

  • We've seen some pictures, often on social media, at an airport.

  • James, do you know exactly where he is?

  • Well, I think that's the greatest irony of all this.

  • I think Edward would would have been sitting there quite come to be last night, thinking I've done the business for Manchester United.

  • I've got Bruno Fernandez over the line after some protracted negotiations between Sporting Lisbon of Manchester United.

  • Both had ideas about what they wanted to pay and they've sorted out a deal on the players coming to Manchester in terms of where he is right now, I think he's on his way to the Northwest.

  • I think it's a fairly relax procedure.

  • I expect him to arrive in Manchester this afternoon.

  • I think Manchester United could do a medical today if they needed to do a medical.

  • It doesn't matter.

  • They're playing Manchester City tonight.

  • I think all things being equal, though, they're quite relaxed about this.

  • Bruno Fernandez has been playing regularly for Sporting Lisbon, their star player touted as perhaps the best player in Portugal too.

  • So I think they're fairly relaxed about medical and expect that to happen tomorrow.

  • Maybe takes 45 hours, perhaps most of the day.

  • And that's to get some sort of confirmation either sort of early evening tomorrow or maybe first thing on Friday morning.

  • But I think Manchester United want to do a game tonight, get the mansion of Darby out the way.

  • Let him perhaps see for himself what Manchester Darby is all about.

  • And then the relax medical tomorrow in the signing for Manchester United fans to be certainly more overjoyed about certainly positive stuff coming out of traffic 24 hours where everything so far has been pretty negative, Yes, that the potential incoming.

  • But what about going looking like Marcus?

  • Rahul is heading out of Old Trafford.

  • Where's he heading?

  • Well, he's not playing much football.

  • The moment for Manchester United, not played for other gonna sell SHAR since November.

  • I think he's kind of surplus to requirements that has been kept in the fall because of the injury problems at Manchester United.

  • But you think you've got a first choice center back pairing at the moment of Victor Lindell often.

  • Harold Dwyer.

  • Give Phil Jones deputizing.

  • You likes of Axel twins.

  • A big You've got Eric bye back from injury as well.

  • We saw him training.

  • Yes, they're Carrington, so there's enough players there.

  • You've got players like Manya Matted.

  • You can step in a centre, half or even look sure it sent 1/2 if they want to play a three at the back, So there's plenty of players there to do that.

  • So I think that means that Marcus Rojo is probably the long end of the list.

  • You've also got Axl Transit becoming as well, so you know it'll get Manchester United are amenable to a loan deal with that studio entails.

  • It's where Marcus Rocco started his career in Argentina.

  • Loan deal, I'm led to believe, would stretch over to the summer, but nothing has been agreed as yet.

  • In terms of other positives for United, we're trying to get a goalkeeper through the door as well.

  • He's in England under 20.

  • International is called Nathan Bishop.

  • He's been playing for South End, and, of course, so Campbell.

  • He's undergoing a medical today.

  • So Manchester United a moving pretty quickly that getting players in.

  • I think the only question mark is perhaps about a striker.

  • I think they'd love to do a deal if they could.

  • I think finding that player and bringing that player in looks probably more doubtful as the hours go on.

  • James, thank you very much for bringing us up to speed eso this Fernandez deal.

  • It does look like it's moving closer, although I'm sure I've said that quite a few times so far in this window.

  • But there has been another development this morning involving the Portuguese Stock Exchange.

  • Stay with us for this, Anton.

  • Just explain.

  • How does this Lincoln with this potential, Fernanda?

  • Usually, that phrase put stock exchange with No, this is actually interesting to stick with us.

  • So, as a listed company sporting up to release any details of sales, only major financial transactions.

  • So they've suspended their activity on the stock exchange while they wait for this quote major announcement.

  • Always the yesterday speculation would deal.

  • Being close with the Manchester United led to well, there's supports the share price rise quite significantly.

  • And that's a big deal because Sporting obviously have had financial problems as well, says a lot of eyes on it.

  • In order to keep sort of competition fair, they've suspended trading on it until they get this enactment done.

  • A CZ we know the fee.

  • We understand the fees around 55 million euros upfront, with two additional add ones of 15 million euros.

  • One relatively easily attainable, one more difficult to attain.

  • If the player, for example, is the Ballon door Manchester United win the Champions League, I wonder which one's more likely, but well, you know, it's that kind of, you know, it's so it's It's a big impact on sporting finances, which has a bigger impact for the business on a much wider scale.

  • So that's why we've seen this development today.

  • I think frustration is probably the word that we can use when summing up how some United fans are feeling about this situation actually matters just tweeted in four minutes ago, he says.

  • I'm so frustrated as a Manchester United fan with the Bruno Fernandez situation.

  • He also says the pole pole per situation, the strikers situation.

  • We need to sort it out.

  • No, and I think that's quite reflective of host on United.

  • Fans are feeling how much of a boost route this give not just the fans, but the Manchester United scored as a whole.

  • If they get this one over the light, you sign it for any kind of social.

  • It's big money, big player.

  • It's about bringing, experiencing thanks to a very good age.

  • You know, he's mid twenties.

  • I like his attitude.

  • I said it this morning with money transfers.

  • A realizes, actually, when he didn't get a move to talk to me in tears for Sporting Lisbon in the summer that six points behind Chelsea, a couple of wins Chelsea running away of it.

  • They've lost eight games this season.

  • No one wants that top four and United a still in all the cops.

  • Europa League is a real slog.

  • Around 32 is not around.

  • This extends around 32.

  • He's gonna be a massive sign of them, a real boost because it's great to have young players coming through But for me, it's always good to have him at the right Time is so much expectation on their shoulders, and you don't want that such a young age, you know you want him to flourish.

  • Even Harry Maguire's got the captain see, probably a bit earlier than what he would have expected, that this would give the whole team and social himself expectation.

  • But, I mean, this is a guy that's being spoken about being the bass player, important tickle at the moment.

  • So he is going to come in with quite a lot of pressure on assault on his soldier.

  • Sure about that.

  • I think that seems to be a bit of a similarity between how this Bruno Fernandez dealers played out.

  • And then what happened in the summer with Harry McGuire as well, all of the summer window.

  • Harry Maguire was the story.

  • We were talking about, how much Lester wanted for Harry Maguire and how much Manchester United.

  • We're prepared to pay for Harry McGuire and in the end, Manchester United paid the money.

  • I've got the player, but it seems to have happened again in this transfer window where sporting of named a price Manchester United have said.

  • We're not willing to pay that.

  • And then, as it's got down to the nitty gritty of the transfer window, United have ended up stepping up and paying the money.

  • I think there's a feeling at United that they would probably overpaying for players at the moment.

  • Now, whether that's because of the position they're in or the selling clubs.

  • No, the power, the financial power of not only Manchester United, but the Premier League as well.

  • But it has been a difficult time for no doubt for Manchester.

  • Yeah, but there is this, obviously, the cloud of negativity about Maine.

  • I had some business in the transfer window we knew, and I think look on the shoulder said that Edward would have said It's gonna take three or four windows to get what they want in terms of their their 11 or or their squad.

  • Look what they've done so far in the two windows.

  • It's not been that bad.

  • I mean, in the summer, we're all so waxing lyrical about what the business they done.

  • McGwire came in when the second came in, Daniel James came in and out.

  • Bruno Fernandez.

  • That's not that bad I think the problem for them is the Harlan Diehl.

  • Obviously, that fallen fruit off, she started to kind of bring that negativity up.

  • No, no, in the situation with Paul Pogba.

  • But I think if you just look at the four signs of the hole over the transfer Windows summer and this one, I think it's actually pretty good business for them.

  • But we all knew Bruno Fernandez has been a target for certainly this window, and they looked at him in the previous window, and any casual observer can see what Manchester United need.

  • They need creativity, and they need leadership, which is exactly what they're getting.

  • Proof in unders.

  • The difference between the window now and the window in the summer is they could dilly dallying the summer.

  • There were no matches, actually, and I should have played host matches this month.

  • How much how many more points we have in the Premier League?

  • If they'd have had, you know, Fernandes in their side, that's the problem.

  • That's the frustration from the fans.

  • And I think that's I think that's understandable.

  • And something I wonder about is well, is the you know, Manchester brought this player into the spotlight more and then they're dilly dallying.

  • I like that freeze that use Dave.

  • You did.

  • You did.

  • I like a dilly daily and it kind of makes me wonder what other teams haven't come in for him.

  • Because if Manchester they're taking their time not wanting to pay the money, why has another primary lead club not gone?

  • You know what we're going to sign him exposing, moved elsewhere is that the sun implies, you know, he's a very, very good player.

  • It's expensive as well, but United have to get him.

  • He's the he's the key for Manchester United.

  • It's a it's a massive signing for them.

  • It's big money, big money for January as well.

  • Yeah, absolutely.

  • Manchester United fans.

  • I don't know what you think.

  • Use that hashtag transfer talk, Get in touch job.

  • But let's get the state of Pelino.

  • Andi Steven Burg Wine has signed a 4.5 year deal at Tottenham and has taken the 23 shirt vacated less than 24 hours ago by Christian Eriksen.

  • Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal with Flamengo for defender Pablo Marie into Milana, considering pulling out of the race to sign Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud this month.

  • We're gonna talk about that a bit later in the show.

  • You see Milan have rejected a bid from Bundesliga side her to Berlin for top target Christoph Pee on Tech.

  • That's according to Skye in Italy.

  • Chef indicted are closing in on a deal to sign the Dutch striker Cairo's If Covic and Southampton are set to complete the loan signing of Carl Walker Peters from top by news of it undo to bring you know, Anton, what can you tell us?

  • Yeah, Wolves have completed signing today Enzo Luis, who is a young holding midfield that they brought in from Dijon on loan until the end of the season.

  • If he impresses, then they can make that deal permanent.

  • They've agreed on option in that contract.

  • A swell your men.

  • You go into the under 23 sides, but I expect him to be named also in the Europa League squad going forward as well, so you may get a chance in that swell.

  • And, as we said earlier, wars divorce.

  • I got another player coming in for a medical today as well, so it's exciting times that wolves, they're finally getting the business done.

  • Rules fans.

  • Let us know what you think.

  • Stay with are still to come on.

  • Transfer talk.

  • Tottenham have secured the services of Steven Burgoyne.

  • But could there be more than before the window closes?

  • Hi there.

  • Welcome back to transfer talk.

  • We are going to get the very latest from Arsenal.

  • We have been telling you that they're close to agreeing a deal with Flamengo for Pablo Mari.

  • And it seems that Flamingo have said goodbye to the player.

  • So this one looks like it could be imminent.

  • Actually, Flamingo tweets it just after 12 o'clock alongside a video, all the players based bits and it roughly translates as the time has come for us to say good bye to this defender who arrived a flamingo to make his mark in our history.

  • Pablo, Marry thank you for everything.

  • So obviously we are awaiting confirmation that that move to be confirmed to Arsenal.

  • We are expecting it would be a little move with an option to buy the deal worth 12 million poems if Arsenal work, exercise that options by in the summer.

  • The loon feed, thought to be £4 million with a further eight million to be peed if they teak up the option.

  • And further to this, we also know that Flamingo have signed central defender Leo Pereira's a direct replacement.

  • So another sign that this was moving, aging close this one's edging closer and flamingo saying goodbye to marry on social media.

  • Adlai Papel Mari is exactly what our snow need.

  • Yeah, on dhe kind words as well from Flamengo.

  • There he was only there for such a short time, so to say, has already made their place in history.

  • I guess that kinda shows how good a player they think he is.

  • I watched him against Liverpool in the World Club company was fantastic and that as well.

  • So I think I'll store and get a good player.

  • We know they're struggling defensively right now, more to injuries, and I think I'd better not really knowing who he trusted that back that back line.

  • My staff is injured slightly sprained ankle will probably be out for a couple of games.

  • Calum Chambers.

  • We know it will be out for the whole season due to the crucial knee ligament injury.

  • What I do wonder, though, is what happens.

  • William Sullivan when he comes back from Lone, he's gonna come back.

  • What happens of him, you fool.

  • It was gonna be a lot of shopping at the back in terms of finding that kind of best centerback parent will be David, Louise and Mari.

  • Will it be William Saliba?

  • Miss Taffy?

  • So karate is what's gonna happen there.

  • So look, he's got options.

  • That's what they need.

  • They need options.

  • Is the left side of center back as well?

  • So you might be able to cover the left back as well as you.

  • Probably two players.

  • Ultimately there is on loan.

  • Obligation to buy is obsolete obligations by actions by as well.

  • So let's see what happens.

  • But definitely a positive sign in for arson.
