Sir Alex denying he was going to get De Gea. That is how it works.
In the world of tweeter (and football) subtle descriptions of negotiations are generally lost. People want black and white. "Is he going?", "Has he signed?". And we are at the stage where things are not that clear yet. Cue insults and so on
Things I have said and I stand by
There is a payment from Manchester United in regards to Falcao's transfer
Things I have never said
Falcao has signed for Manchester United
Some will get the difference. Most won't because they hear whatever they want to hear. Ah well
In transfers, there is the possibility of giving some money as a refundable deposit or down payment to guarantee bona fides (as explained by @EWHK70 in Twitter. Sorry mate, explaining a story people don't want to hear will mean in you being abused)
Falcao belongs in a big percentage to a third party, an investment fund. They are asking for guarantees from those that are interested in him (Chelsea being another one, PSG too, possibly others). Payments have been made. The one who pays the totality of the buy out clause (with the agreement of the player) will take him. The others will get a refund.
If people do not like the story, you will get abuse. That is how it works in this world. If the transfer eventually doesn't take place then I was wrong (when I never said it will)
Never mind. Talk soon
