Tiger Fighting, October 2 The well-known Italian transfer reporter Romano accepted an exclusive interview with Manchester United’s self-media platform utdreport, and talked about many player transfer issues related to Manchester United.
October 5th is the deadline for the summer window transfer in recent years, but so far Manchester United has only signed one Van der Beek. Rumors about Sancho are still going on, Telis’ transfer progress is still in progress, and Manchester United also has transfer rumors with Cavani, Jovic and other players.
-From the beginning of the player sale, do you feel that Manchester United's attitude has changed when it sells unwanted players this summer? In the past, the club seemed willing to sell players at low prices, but this summer, Manchester United seemed to insist on their valuation of players.
Romano: Yes, it is certain that Manchester United are changing their attitude, they want their own prices, so they will say, ‘if you pay, then you can take the players. If you don't, the players will stay. ’. I think this is good. At different times, players like Smalling can leave the club on loan in June or July, and now Manchester United will get the money they want in the last few days. That's why I think this is a good way for Manchester United to negotiate. The club’s attitude towards players who are about to leave the club will change. When Rome submits their new offer, I hope Smalling will leave as an official transfer, and Smalling will most likely return to Rome. Dalot is the same. Roma and AC Milan hope to loan him, but Manchester United hopes to let the players leave by means of permanent transfer. This is the club's new attitude.
-Roma and Manchester United have been negotiating for a long time on Smalling, and the two sides are expected to reach an agreement. Can we expect other Manchester United players to transfer to Serie A? We know that Roma and AC Milan are interested in Dalot, but is it possible for the two clubs to reach an agreement with Manchester United on the permanent transfer of their players?
Romano: AC Milan provided Dalot with a loan contract with the option to buy. Dalot wants to join an Italian team, so the player can accept a transfer to Serie A. In addition, Everton was interested in him, but Manchester United refused because Manchester United wanted a permanent contract. Roma's plan is to match Manchester United's asking price for Smalling, which is about 20 million euros or less. But they also want to loan Dalot or Mensa. Roma is negotiating with Manchester United on Smalling and Dalot. It is difficult to see Dalot as part of Smalling’s transfer because Manchester United only wants to get a transfer fee, so let’s see how they decide on this.
-Let us focus on the next player who is less likely to leave the team than ever before-Pogba. Last summer, you reported that Juventus regarded him as the number one target, but due to the financial constraints caused by the new crown epidemic, any transfers seemed to be shelved. Is it possible for Pogba to terminate the contract and transfer freely again, or does he really see his long-term future at Manchester United?
, In the next few weeks we will see how the player agent Raiola and his contract are, and they will make a decision in the next few weeks. They said, ‘keep quiet during the transfer window and will make a decision later. Pogba focuses on the stadium, not transfers and contracts. Raiola will focus on the player's contract later, not now, this is their decision, because Raiola is busy with many other transactions and so on. At the moment I think Pogba is very happy at Manchester United, that's for sure.
，在接下来的几周内，我们将查看球员经纪人Raiola及其合同的情况，他们将在接下来的几周内做出决定。他们说，‘在移转窗口期间保持安静，稍后再作决定。 Pogba专注于体育场，而不是转会和合同。 Raiola将稍后而不是现在专注于玩家的合同，这是他们的决定，因为Raiola忙于许多其他交易等等。目前，我认为波格巴在曼联非常高兴。
-Manchester United is looking forward to signing Teles at a low price, while Porto insists on asking for about 20 million euros and then sells Smalling to Rome. Will the transfer continue?
Romano: I think Manchester United’s position is clear. They said they would not pay 20 million to 25 million euros for Teles. If
-According to reports, free agent Cavani and Real Madrid striker Jovic have been recommended to Manchester United. How likely is the club to introduce one of these players? You have also mentioned Manchester United's interest in central defenders. Are there any relevant players?
Romano: There is no goal in the center back position. At present, Manchester United's attention is focused on the left back and forward positions, and of course there are wingers. Manchester United is considering different transfers, whether there is a chance to find a central defender is possible, but not sure.
I think it is possible for Jovic to stay at Real Madrid because they are considering selling Mayoral. Jovic has been recommended to many clubs-Roma, Milan, Manchester United and Bundesliga clubs. I think Manchester United will not regard him as the first choice now. Cavani was also recommended to Manchester United, but he wanted a long-term contract and a good salary. Manchester United is considering other candidates. More than 100 players are recommended every month, so these rumors are normal.
-Sancho was not selected for the German Super Cup list between Dortmund and Bayern this week due to illness. All summer you said that Manchester United would have to pay 120 million to take Sancho away, otherwise it would be useless. Now that we have entered the last week of the transfer window, will this change the status quo? To what extent this transfer depends on whether Dortmund has enough time to sign a replacement player, or will they sell the player regardless of Manchester United's bid?
Romano: This is why Dort said that he believes Sancho will stay. Dort confirmed that Sancho will not leave the team. They want 120 million euros or will not transfer. They have insisted on this attitude for three months. This is the decision of the Dortmund club. At present, Manchester United will not bid 120 million euros. For two months, Manchester United has been considering re-quoting, but it was unsuccessful. The attitude of the players has been like this. ‘I’m very happy to stay in Dortmund. Obviously Sancho wants to transfer, but this is not only for himself, Dortmund also has a list of replacement players. But obviously,
罗曼诺：这就是为什么多特说他相信桑乔会留下的原因。 Dort确认Sancho不会离开球队。他们想要1.2亿欧元，否则将不会转移。他们坚持这种态度已经三个月了。这是多特蒙德俱乐部的决定。目前，曼联不会出价1.2亿欧元。两个月来，曼联一直在考虑重新报价，但没有成功。球员们的态度一直是这样。 ‘我很高兴待在多特蒙德。显然，桑乔想要转会，但这不仅是对他本人，多特蒙德也有一些替补球员。但是显然
Dortmund's insistence on using an intermediary to negotiate in this transfer caused trouble to Manchester United. Do you know why they insisted on this approach instead of directly negotiating between the two clubs?
Romano: This is part of football. Other clubs also have this approach. Not only Manchester United, but other top clubs have middlemen, so I don't think this is the problem. In today’s transfer market, transfers are part of football.
Dort said that Sancho will not be sold after the "deadline" on August 10, but they still negotiate through an intermediary, and revealed that they would pay a transfer fee of 120 million or the player would not leave. With fans still unable to guarantee their return to the stadium this season, does Dortmund have a secret way to obtain assets to cash out?
Romano: I think there is really no secret. Every player in the world has a price. You must respect Dortmund because their attitude has always been the same. I don’t think they want to sell Sancho,
We will see clubs like Liverpool and La Liga clubs joining the competition.
