Hi guys,
I don't know about you all but with all the crazy talk surrounding Man Utd, I could really use an Ed002 sharkopod to calm the good old nerves. Ed whenever you are free, we will be waiting.
Thanks a million.

{Ed002's Note - I have time issues at present but I can answer specific questions.}

Hi Ed002
Who behind the scenes is making the decisions toward re transfer targets
Does Ferguson or charlton have a say on anything?
Also do we view Fred as a player we are likely to persist with?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant who makes decisions. There are no efforts being made to sell Fred although there has been an approach to take him on loan.}

Hi Ed I see there's no Dean Henderson in the tour squad, is the plan to loan or sell him?

{Ed002's Note - Dean Henderson was at the Under 21 tournament and is not due back yet. I suspect a loan to Sheffield United will be the best option if he signs a new contract first.}

Ed if you don’t mind.
Have any clubs shown interest in Bailly, Rojo, Smalling and Jones?

I know you’ve said Rojo will be difficult to move, and I wondered if Smalling and Jones signing new contracts is to protect any value or because they are genuinely considered good enough for the medium term.

{Ed002's Note - To the best of my knowledge:
Eric Bailly (CB) Not for sale - Lyon enquired in February or March.
Marcos Rojo (LB/CB) not wanted but limited which countries he can move to - no interest being shown in himChris Smalling (CB) not for sale at this time
Phil Jones (CB) available but no interest in him.}

That’s positive that the right players look to be available at least. Jones signing a new deal I think will have made others think twice about going for him unfortunately.

Thank you for the prompt response Ed, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

I know this maybe a silly question but why is Rojo limited to where he can move to?

{Ed002's Note - It is not really a matter of discussion but some places - including the likes of Rojo and Keita - are restricted where they ca move to.}
