Got it from a good source that the deal has taken place tonight, and an announcement will be made in the morning.
Initial indications are that there will be around £30m in transfer money, but the emphasis is on attracting future stars, rather than a quick fix.
This falls in line with what Rafa and Parry were saying recently.
No names were mentioned, but at least one big signing will be unveiled within the next few days.
Given that David Villa was seen today in a Liverpool Restaurant, it seems likely that he could be the first of many.
Parry hinted at this on SkySports.com when he said "we are working on a few things at the moment" with regards to transfers, because of the injury situation.
He went on to say that there will no-one be leaving anfield.
I am starting to get excited now, nothing against Parry, but he has always been reluctant to put his hands in his pockets at the right times.
Although DIC have said they will not use the club as a rich mans plaything (like Abramovich), they have indicated that they will make transfer funds available when Rafa wants them - as long as they make good financial sense. I guess this means not spending 20-30m on someone over 28, but someone like C Ronaldo would be a good investment.
I really feel this is our time now.
If we can get those elusive few players we have always been short of, and this doesnt necessarily mean superstars, then I can see us winning the title sooner, rather than later.
Thoughts, anyone ?
evo normaly i agree with what you say but i believe parry has done a great job hes built the club up and attracted the investors. maybe the money just hasnt been there for parry to hand out
and on the takeover i believe it has already happened except for the signing of a few little details
after the world cup everyone said he would leave United, you wish, and as for a one trick pony Bollocks, one of the best and most exiting players in the game at the moment, in my humble opinion.
But you say not C ronaldo but someone like him , who ?
Anyone got any serious comments on this subject?
I've not seen any annoucements yet today, so maybe counting chickens before they hatch. But seems to me its just down to the lawyers dotting the i's at this point.
For opening up transfer budget, I'd not say no to Villa, but not sure that would be our priority right now. Personally think we need a winger more than a forward between now and the end of the season. Not because I want to put down Pennant (although wish he were performing more consistently) but with Garcia out for the season, and Gonzalez hurt, we need some help out wide.
I like the way you have inferred that I am fat, without actually seeing me. Comical actually. Not bad for a bluenose.
But it just goes to show the level of intelligence of your species.
Bigevo actually originates from the fact that I am quite a large bloke - 6 foot 4.
If your mummy ever lets you out late, you can find me working the doors in town - you can see for yourself.
