Manchester United should be looking to move on Michael Keane, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Rafael Da Silva, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Tom Cleverley, Maourane Fellaini, Anderson and Danny Welbeck. These players should raise £86 million. I would accept £50 million for these players. They have been given so many chances to impress the hierarchy at Manchester United and have failed to deliver. There may be debate but there are no signs of improvement.

Also, I think Angel Di Maria would be a terrific signing for the team, however for the right price. I personally think we should not pay over £48 million for him. He transformed himself as a central-midfield player and was Real Madrid's best player besides from Cristiano Ronaldo. The comparisons between the transfer of Juan Mata are irrelevant because Di Maria can play anywhere across the midfield and is willing to sacrifice himself for the team.

Although, if Gareth Bale is worth £86 million, then in my opinion, Angel Di Maria is worth paying £95 million for.

The new manager won't be announced until it is too late for the new man to spend any of the clubs finances. It will be another year of loan signings turning up for the wage and not the club. Here we go again!

The debate around Liverpool signing Mario Balotelli is still yet to conclude, however I think that Mario Balotelli is an excellent signing for the club.

As a Manchester United fan, I respect Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers for what they achieved last season and how the players bought into the vision of Rodgers. £75 million for Luis Suarez is an excellent deal for the team, considering he was going to be unavailable until late October, he was disruptive on the team on occasions and bought the club into disrepute several times, and put Brendan and the club in difficult situations, but Luis Suarez is a world-class footballer and now he is playing alongside the world's best in Lionel Messi.

During his career, he has got to the Euro 2012 final, won the Premier league, won the FA Cup, won the Champions League, won the Serie A twice and won the Italian Cup. He has had previous success in his early career and is still relatively young at 24 and can have further success. He is a powerful, strong and quick striker, who scored a lot of goals even when he was not regularly being picked at Manchester City. He is a player worth taking a gamble on and they are getting a bargain at £16 million and with him getting older, he is more likely to wise-up and behave.

Even if Brendan Rodgers is worried about the potential signing, he has Sturridge, Borini and Lambert currently at his disposal and has Markovic, Lallana, Sterling and Coutinho in midfield if there was ever a problem.

What are your thoughts? Open to anyone.
Don't say your not a true MU fan, it is not a crime to repsect another team, regardless of whether your rivals.
