All this agent stuff is baloney, the agent works for Ferguson, not the other way around.

If Ferguson wants to stay, he'll stay.  If he wants to go he'll go.   Might appease some people to think that some big nasty faceless agent is manipulating him but truth be known he has a mind of his own and it will be his decision at the end of the day.

Personally I think he'll be off, the writing is on the wall.

a better description of their job role is personal manager/advisor.

You are being kind there, the phrase I had in mind was parasite.....

Pogba's agent stands to trouser about £12m if he engineers a move, no wonder the media have been full of stories about PP going elsewhere...….

Agents are killing football and it looks as though Ferguson will be the next 'money maker' for someone....

Wasn't there an example last summer window where Man Utd wanted a player, he wanted to go to them as well but the agent wanted £5m for himself or the deal was off? Then Man Utd sensible pulled out of the deal themselves.

Almost everybody on here at some time would if
Asked for a pay rise
Used a mortgage broker
Made a selection based on a comparison site

But because it’s football and there is unconventional emotion..agents are parasites .
If it was your son/brother/cousin you’d want them though get the absolute best deal they could ....all the balls about feelings for West Brom would be our the window .
If youre going to get told off, get told off for doing something not for doing nothing..

I don’t agree with half of my spellings 😄

But seriously, if your son was offered 20k a week at Albion, and 40k a week at Leeds ...what would you say to him.?

I’m probably being stupid here, but with Manure making a substantial bid for Jude Bellingham from the Blues can someone explain to me what the difference is with his and Ferguson’s (and there’s we’ve lost for the paultry 230k compensation fee)  contracts? Is it just as simple as them going for Bellingham now rather than waiting until the end of the season? And in that case would he then be available for 230k as he can’t sign a professional contract until he is 17 anyway?

Bellingham WILL be signing a contract at Blues so he will be secured by Blues for a few years, Ferguson contract is expiring.

Bellingham is one of the first names down on the Blues teamsheet every week, making their midfield tick at 16.

Ferguson is 19, has been converted to a full back just this season, and despite our fans getting ahead of themselves, is yet to truly convince.

It's the difference between a superb talent and a possible talent.

Edit: Plus United are idiots who overpay for everybody.

But he hasn’t yet, so is actually a free agent

Right now he’s a free agent (not yet 17 so can’t sign a pro contract), and so United would have to pay compensation set at a tribunal. The £230k fixed compensation fee ONLY applies if he went to a non-English club.

Now I'm confused. I thought he was an Albion fan, at least his kids are.

Ben foster says a lot to the press... he’s a joke. The adulation he gets, whilst Mowbray gets pelters for similar comments is a joke

Given his performances against Villa it wouldn’t surprise me if he was a villa fan

I haven’t got that penalty incident out my head yet

Me neither, and he is definitely Villa.

Alan Nixon reporting on Twitter that Palace fancy having a go at signing Ferguson “despite foreign interest”.   Have seen elsewhere a suggestion that bid might be around £4m
