The Indipendent, Manchester: bid for Thuram
According to English daily the Indipendent,
Manchester United would have offered Parma some
11 million pounds for World Champion Lillian
Thuram. The frenchman is not a secondary goal
since Tottenham's refusal to sell Campbell.

***********************

Whoah! The most stupid rumour yet. Parma could perhaps consider it if they bid 22 million pounds. But even if that was the case I'm sure Lilian wants to stay in Italy.

11 million pounds are a ridiculusc price for Lilian.If they double this MAYBE there is a chance for them.

man united are known for their rediculous bids...they offered 15million pounds for aimar, even knowing that other clubs were ready to offer at least twice as much. they also bid for kily gonzalez in the amound of 6million pounds...those prices are just unacceptable......however, i did read ferguson in an interview saying that he wants thuram and veron on his team but they will probably not be sold.

If Man. Utd can pay more than 22 million, that would be a great deal. We could then use that money to buy two more young talented defenders.

FORZA! PARMA!

Thuram just a defender?!? What planet are you living on? He is as important to Parma as Crespo is so why should he be any cheaper. Isn't it just as valuable to avoid a goal against as it is scoring one?

Lilian is the best defender in the world. Remember that! Besides, he is always dangerous whenever he goes on one of his forward runs too.

Thuram is not just a defender.He is THE defender.He is the more complete footballer along with Figo right now.If I was his coach I would no doubt use him at many positions apart from the defence.He can pass,control the ball and has a mean shot when he tries his foot.

The 22 million price Carlito was meant to mean "he is not for sale" but if I would value him,I would value him more than that.

I would in fact love to see Thuram as right defender/midfielder. If we are supposed to use the 3-5-2 system we need wide players capable of defending. Thuram would be perfect. He's got pace, ball control, vision and understanding of the game, great passes and of course one of the best at defending. I think we only use half of his capacity as central defender.

Of cours we must sell him also sell
cannovaro to milan
buffon to lazio
Crespo to lazio or juventus

Ofcource not if we start to sell our best players we can better go back to serie B.
Look at Atlético M. they had great players 2 years ago and what have they now only a mere shadow of what they had!
Now all players of AM are leaving
