nobody is going to pay us £50m for Mings.

Yes, I think this season has shown his limitations.  He's still of great value to us, especially if we go down, but I'd be surprised if we got anywhere near that if he leaves at the end of the season.

Think Axel's weakness was when the ball was in the air.

Yep and I suspect it's why he'll struggle to make it as a centre back at the highest level, more likely to be a defensive midfielder in my opinion.

I reckon he'll want to still play in the Premier League so as to be in a chance of playing for England. If he did stay with us, I think he'd make a good captain. He comes over well in interviews too, which will reflect well on us in this mass media age.

Quite. If Axel was going to be as good as Mings, he would already be getting a lot more games for Man U.

I would take 15 and Axel for Mings to be fair. I like him a lot but Axel will be the better player in the long run.

They can get fucked at that price mate. We paid £25m for him based on performances in the Championship, and that was on 6 months football after he'd been crocked for nearly 3 years.

He's now played a full season in the top flight and played for England alongside the man they just paid £80m for. Double what we paid plus Axel please, or get tae fuck.

Yes, and if we had taken him on loan this season we would be offering about £10m based on the last 6 months performances. We paid far too much based on excellent championship form, and the fact we were desperate to retain some of our promoted teams best players for continuity. I supported that at the time as it made sense and we had enough new players to bed in, but he has not been worth the money this season and his value has decreased not increased since we paid it.

There is a tendancy on this board when things aren't going well to don the shite tinted spectacles.

That's some next level attempt to talk the club down under any circumstances.

We signed Mings when he wasn't good enough to get in the Bournemouth team.

A year later he has played for England and, apparently, Man United want to sign him.

And his value has gone... down?

Agreed, LeeB.

If they thought Maguire was worth £80m, £50 is a generous price from an Aston Villa perspective.

Mings has been another hamstrung by the lack of movement in front of him meaning he holds onto the ball too long, he's not looked great but if we didn't get back at least what we paid, after his England caps and subsequent increased profile, I'd eat my hat.

And I'd eat it after it passed through.

You watch now, the revelation of a £20m release clause in his contract.

I think that's offset by the fact that he's been a member of a truly terrible defence this season and has made more than his fair share of mistakes.

So... Man U obviously wouldn't want to sign him, then. Panic over.
