Just a thought from left of field regarding Digne and Benitez.
Would it be that Rafa was told to get rid of all the high earners within the club?
Bernard was on big wages, he was the first to go followed by Rodriguez and now Digne.
Was it a case of Digne being frozen out so he would ask for a move? Maybe that was the plan all along as we were going to have to sell to buy. I can see Gomes and Mina and possibly Pickford next as they're all on around 100k per week. I don't imagine a fire sale in January but I do believe they're the most likely to go next. Big wages and Pickford is the only one playing regularly. I am open to correction but I believe Benitez mentioned something like this in an interview not that long ago.
Mind you Delph and Tosun are two others picking up nice wages also but unfortunately not huge assets if we were to sell as they're both nearly out of contract.
As I say I might be well off the mark but it has crossed my mind.
Here's hoping for a big 3 points tomorrow and hopefully start picking up regular points.

Think you will find all players are available for the right price mate.

I have seen managers play good football with other teams then come to us and for some reason can not replicate it, i am talking basic stuff passing patterns etc. I think its more of a deep rooted thing withing the club and players. The last time i seen the players all united was under moyes before that it was i am struggling to remember and after moyes nothing even carlo a world class manager could not sort us out we finished 12th. I personally think rafa is of the mind set of if your not all in you will go and felxes his muscles if you will and uses lucas digne as an example. If you do not put everyrhing in you will follow hin out the door. And for me its long over due to many times we have players going through the motions getting paid rediculous money. Its just not acceptable. I could be wrong but rafa did say i have foxed a problem i am hoping the plod on approch of some of the players is the problem he is reffering to.

Kerry, you probably not too far off the mark. We have another 8 high earners put of contract in the summer, so they have to take a huge pat cut or leave.

We will probably then replace them with younger, cheaper players with a point to prove.

Some reports are now saying digne spat his dummy out because he was taken off set peices.

Kerry toffee I was thinking similar lines. Rafa needs to sell to raise funds. We had Pickford, DCL, Richarlison, Godfrey and Digne as players with value. If he had tried to sell Pickford, DCL or Godfrey there would have been an outcry. Richarlison is one who may want to go. So test the water, pick a fall out with Digne (the cheaper player) tell him to leave and wait for the reaction.

They are all replaceable but to replace DCL with similar quality or better will cost a lot of money and possibly the same to keep him.
Personally I would not be surprised to see Richarlison and Pickford leave next. Rumblings that Spurs looking for new goalkeeper and interest in Pickford won’t go away. Towards end of month might be interesting. £50 m minimum for Pickford.

I agree that there was likely a plan to clear the high earners but with Digne I am sure he could’ve just been made available and would’ve been snapped up by someone
The way this transpired I feel lowered his value.
