Hi ed002. I note you say pogba still wants out.
There can be only a handful of clubs who could afford to finance a deal like that.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

I think you said both the spanish clubs are less interested now.
So does that leave juve as his best and preferred option ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Ed I might be way off and know it doesn't happen often, but are juve looking to involve another playerin the deal if it happens.

{Ed002's Note - Yes they will do.}

Probably unrelated and reading too much into it, but is Pogba the only player to not wear a suit to away games?

Do you know if united have any targets in mind to replace him if pogba were to go ed or is that still a little unclear until we appoint a new permenant coach.
Also with the numbers being so big do you think that we will have to change the policy on player part exchange in order to get a deal done?

{Ed002's Note - Saul Niguez would be a target. Manchester United has an interest in a Juve player so it is possible.}

Shame to hear that about pogba tbh. I would have hoped he would have wanted to stay. The Juve player isn’t Douglas Costa is it ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is.}

Are united reluctant or willing sellers ed?
I know you said before that the club were looking to sell him is that still the case or do they hope to retain him now?
Saul is a very good player i'd rather that they both played for united.

Whats your view ed on OGS. He has obviously surpassed all expectations and appears now to be the favourite for the job? Are you surprised with the results achieved?

{Ed002's Note - MU would like him to stay but he wants out. I am not surprised at the results as the club deliberately made the change when there was a comparatively easy run of games.}

Thanks ed. I like costa but would never in a million years swap him for pogba. But then I’m not in charge of running the club. If Saul did come in I think that would be the best possible replacement for pogba. Eriksen is another. Either way I can’t think of many that would improve on pogba when he’s playing the way he currently is.

If Pogba really wants out, we need to replace him with Saul Niguez.
Douglas Costa will be a good option for Right Wing.
Maybe selling Pogba can sort out 2 positions.

Selling pogba next season would be the stupidest possible thing we could do. We need a cb, a rw, a mf to backup or replace matic, a rb and that's without including the fact that we need to get rid and replacing atleast 1 of sanchez or lukuku.

if we sell pogba the new manager whether OGS or Poch will have a disastrous season given he is our only creative player who can come up with the goods from mf. Saul is a decent player and i would like us to sign him regardless of whether pogba is sold or not as he alongside pogba and hererra would be fantastic but as a pogba replacement he would be a mediocre signing.

Douglas costa is another that would be an expensive failure, first thing we need to do is get idiot ed away from transfers, his galactico signings like sanchez, lukaku and adm have done enough damage to us.

I said elsewhere on here that the club should be looking at Jadon Sancho (if he is interested in coming) but wondered if someone was whispering “bargain” in Ed Woodward’s ear about Douglas Costa. We do seem to have not bought the best or the best potential in most cases for a while. Personally I wouldn’t look at Costa and would look at young high potential young talent like Sancho or Hudson Odoi for our right side but who is making the recruitment decisions?

Costa isn't good enough and doesn't offset much of the value of pogba.

Ed02, if Pogba does leave is it to a European club or could another English club be an option?

{Ed002's Note - An English side was approached in the summer and they were not interested so I would think it unlikely.}

With Bayern’s two aging winger (Robben and Ribery) if Costa was any good as a winger they would have kept him instead of letting him go to Juve. Surely.

{Ed001's Note - it is attitude rather than ability that saw him leave. He was fed up with those two being in the team ahead of him and wanted out and wasn't prepared to listen when told that things would change.}

Costa wouldn't be a replacement for pogba, ed has said we would look at saul . And he will cost a packet .
I will be very surprised if pogba leaves in the summer.

If the reason for Pogba's discontent was Mourinho and with the latter now gone . .
Might his upsurge in form indicate a change of mind is possible? Or does he just love life in Turin? If so, why did he leave? Much more money allied to he knew the place?
