Hi eds with jose latest comments regarding our captain do you have any insight into him leaving for China before the end of Feb?

I doubt Rooney knows where China is. Fortune cookie always wrong?

Papers are going nuts, Rooney offered 35 mil a year, he will quit if not picked at the weekend . bit extreme moving your family to China for 3 year because you don't get picked for a game.
It was the same in January before the English transfer window shut, but it sells .
Rooney twitted today great to be back with the boys training . Sounds like he is on the move.

to be fair rooney hasn't made any significant movements for some time now.

Can't see him leaving mid season and to suggest he will go to China if he is not picked at the weekend sounds like nonsense to me.
He doesn't need the money and he will have more attractive footballing options in the summer. They may well not have the same financial offer as China but you would think that is not his primary concern at this stage of his life.
Staying at United in a bit part role may not be attractive to him but he might just want to see it his contact and move on a free after kicking his heels in the bench for a year or so.
Does he still think he can get into tyne England squad for the world cup? Will be achieve that sitting on the bench at United.
He is at a crossroads and will have decisions to make but I don't think he will make any major decision before the summer and Jose says he won't be forced or the door but he won't be in the team if he has his first choice 16 available to him that is clear.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 10:29:09
There's no way Rooney spends the rest of his contract sat on the bench, all he's wanted to do is play football.

The opportunity to re-join Everton has probably passed him by now that Koeman is in charge so his options are really limited.

His team around him probably want him to move to the states as he will continue to earn a bucket load there and will be one of the best players in the league. China is surely too much of a barrier for him.

Lazy journalism for me.

If he goes anywhere I'd imagine the US. I think he's got some property out there.

First time poster but followed the site for a long time. Best site around for me, thanks to all the eds who make it possible. Phenomenal job.

Have just seen something on the BBC gossip that Utd have renewed interest in Kroos. Was wondering if anybody could shed some light on this? Thanks in advance.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - It was expected that Kroos would leave last summer even though his initial beef was with Benitez. Howver, Zidane persuaded him to stay regardless of the interest of Manchester City. As I explained in the Sharkopod Manchester United are still considering Kroos but nothing was going to happen in January. Real Madrid, at least the manager, would like to keep him and not sell but there remains a chance that the club may offer him elsewhere to try and facilitate a deal for a striker. The interest of the three other clubs that Hebel approached in the summer will have moved on I would think.}

20 Feb 2017 11:49:01
I know it isn't a United question but wondering is the striker Paulo Dybala of Juventus?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

20 Feb 2017 11:55:53
Thanks Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

20 Feb 2017 12:49:16
I was considering posting the same thing purely because I'd love to see Kroos at United, but guessed it's probably red top fodder.

He'd be an ideal replacement for Carrick if we got him.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Feb 2017 13:57:23
I don't think we could do any better than Kroos. Verratti maybe but that's never going to happen. Kroos, Pogba, Herrera is a very good midfield 3.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Feb 2017 12:40:39
Thanks for the quick reply Ed002. Much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 08:38:18
Is there any particular reason why Verratti is unlikely to transfer to us? I've seen it a few times in comments, and I don't understand where its come from.

I don't necessarily think he will, but everyone appears to be fairly optimistic about transfers, until his name is mentioned.

If the reason is simply 'Champions League' etc then fair enough but I didn't know if he disliked Enlgand/ our club/ Mourinho/ specific players. Or is he just either a massive PSG fan or Real/ Bca/ other bound?

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 09:28:42
He has said on multiple occasions that the only club he would leave PSG for is Barcelona. He has said he has no interest in playing in the EPL.
Put those two points of view together then I think its pretty clear the chances of us signing him are almost non exsistant.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 10:21:56
If Verratti comes to the Premier League it be Chelsea, Italian connections and living in London

Plus it's pretty well known Italian players (apart from Zola) don't do well in the Premier League as they are not used to the speed of the league which is a big X for me

Personally he end up at Madrid sometime in the future, Zidane a big fan of his and his style be more suited to a style of Real Madrid

The Carrick position is a interesting one, Ander Herrara could be a potential replacement if is willing to commit to the position, do we buy a carbon copy version of him or do we decide we need someone a bit more of a bite in a Defensive Midfielder

I interested to see if someone like Modric would be available which could be a short term replacement in a Carrick mould, I think it be hard to get Kroos, Verratti or Weigl. Or do we get someone like William Carvalho or the Kessie guy from Atlanta to play more of a Defensive role.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - THere have been plenty of Italian players who have done well in the Premier League - Ravinelli, Di Matteo, Vialli, Di Canio, Carbone ....}

21 Feb 2017 11:02:52
so your saying he might not come to UTD then? :-)

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 11:54:25
I really rate Herrera but he is not a replacement for Carrick.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 12:07:25
Sorry ed002 maybe I was a bit harsh on Italian players but part of me feel like some of those where just a PR stunt to get fans into the ground back in the 90s, tbh though they did pretty well at their respected clubs but I don't think they were world beaters, they were just made to look good because they were at bad teams, tbh I probably being very critical on them.

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Clubs don't spend millions buying players as a "stunt" to get a few more fans to go to matches.}

21 Feb 2017 14:19:10
Did he not nearly sign for us in the Moyes era?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 06:19:03
Kroos / veratti/ thiago are for me the standout playmakers in the game today.
All 3 are at top clubs and will be in no rush to leave where they are. I would imagine none of the 3 will be forced out the door.
Veratti has said he does not fancy playing in epl and would prefer to go stay go home or head for Spain.
Thiago suffers quite a bit with injuries and bayern don't sell easily.
Kroos seems to be happier under Zidane.
I can see Jose signing a raibot / fabhino/ matic type midfielder high energy and more destructive than creative.
Personally and in an ideal world I would like to see veratti or Kroos but I just don't see that happening I hope I'm wrong.

Anything on Rooney to China before the end of their window?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

19 Feb 2017 23:05:46
Not likely at any time. He is already very rich and he loves it where he is even if there are too many footballers coming to Alderley Edge and knocking down lovely houses and building monstrous mansions in their place.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Feb 2017 10:31:08
Just paper talk, Rooney won't leave United at least until this summer and I personally reckon he will see his contract out then make a decision to carry on playing at United or somewhere else, he could also retire (very unlikely)

Agree0 1Disagree

18 Feb 2017 18:42:23
Hi guys,
There's been talk (although admittedly limited), about sergio aguero possibly moving to the red side of Manchester in the summer.
Is there any truth to the rumours and would you lot like to see him in a Utd shirt or do we not want City's cast offs?
Personally rate him highly as a player but not sure whether it would be wiser to go for a younger player with similar skill in Antoine Greizmann?

Believable0 5Unbelievable

18 Feb 2017 19:38:39
Paper doesn't refuse ink. Man utd stories sell papers get clicks etc. Don't let it bother you is my advice.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Feb 2017 09:11:59
Honest truth City would sell him to any other club first before United, 0% chance of happening, you just don't sell quality players to your rivals.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Feb 2017 11:16:38
I'd - gladly - eat my hate if that happened but just can't see City selling to us. Why would they?

If we were to pinch a star from a rival I'd guess Sanchez to be the most achievable. Just got a hunch about it.

Agree0 1Disagree

19 Feb 2017 20:21:58
I think Alexis is achievable but gut feeling they going to buy him to replace Dybala who going to go to Madrid in the summer

Our superstar signing will be Griezmann or no-one, think it be more about addressing certain positions ie LB, RB and buying some depth.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Feb 2017 08:35:28
Hi there Ed002!

Sorry to bother you but would you be good enough to shed any light on rumours that Lindelof has signed a pre-contract agreement with United, apparently warding off strong interest from Roma, who apparently want him to replace Kostas Manolas?

Thanks again for your precious time!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Lindelhof cannot agree a pre-contract with Manchester United as he is not out of contract in the summer.}

17 Feb 2017 13:57:08
Thank you Ed002 for your swift and definitive response. Very much appreciated.

These rumours about martial and rashford wanting out don't sound good .
Prob just paper talk.

Believable0 2Unbelievable

14 Feb 2017 10:15:36
We have to keep Martial. If it's true about Rashford then for me he's doing a Welbeck, it's way to soon for him to be leading the line and I like to think he's not that daft.

Agree0 1Disagree

14 Feb 2017 10:46:55
That same story/ news outlet has also linked us with Michail Antonio.

If they can't link us with new players then they write about how unhappy our current squad are! sad really.

Still not happy about me calling you out on your " martial is a arrogant p453" comment?

If so i apologise , move on.

No way rashford is unhappy, he couldn't have wished for a much better start to his career.

According to the report it's not the start of his career he is worrying about 😄
And rightly so, may I say.

Ever notice how when we're not winning all the players are happy and committed to the club.

But the moment we start winning and there are few negitives around the club half our players become unhappy and want to leave?

So far we have had Real Madrid trying to sign DDG again, Martial and Rashford unhappy. Mourinho trying to force players out the door to raise funds for Griezmann.

Negative United stories sell papers and get clicks, so when they can't write about us playing poorly then they need to make something else up.

Notice how Rashford wanting out only surfaced after Martial rubbished claims he wants to leave and Mourinho played him in a couple of games. Can't push that story anymore so they need a new name, oh let's go for Rashford. Watch after Rashford rubbishes it then it'll be Shaw.

15 Feb 2017 12:11:06
Its when they start doing Fellaini stories we should worry.

Shappy don't forget the newest one. Griezmann is having doubts because of the weather in Manchester 😂.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Feb 2017 07:01:50
And the very next day Mourinho and Rashford rubbish the reports and suddenly its Shaw who is unhappy and wants to leave.

Just ignore it until you hear something from either the player, the manager or the club directly.

Does anyone have any idea about long term left back plans? With Shaw seemingly un-favoured with Mourinho for whatever reason and with Blind, Rojo, Darmian also not looking likely to be a long term option is there plans in the summer to recruit? only defensive reinforcements I have seen rumoured are for CB / RB, thanks in advance.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

06 Feb 2017 14:06:39
No idea dobeg. On the face of it things don't look good for shaw but maybe Jose is just giving him the opportunity to improve his fitness.
Ed002 has said we have looked at the young lad from Celtic along with half a dozen other clubs. Apart from that I've heard nothing.
Blind seems to have fallen down the pecking order. Darmian is only a 2nd or 3rd option on that side. Rojo lacks a lot of key attributes to be a top full back but is probably the no 1 choice there at the moment. If shaw were to go it leaves a gaping hole in that position imo.
Hopefully Jose is playing the long game with shaw and hopefully shaw is responding and doing his best to get into top condition. Let's hope that is the case personally I have my doubts.

Agree4 3Disagree

18 Feb 2017 18:47:48
We have to remember what Jose did with Mkhitarayan before jumping to too many conclusions about Shaw not being included. I think that he's just giving him some time to get fully fit and keep him out of the team so he doesn't get any unfair criticism.
