Hi Eds. Just wondering do you expect Manchester United to attempt and get either or both Alexis Sanchez and Ozil in either the January transfer window or this summer?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer sensibly about when transfers will happen but MU have not shown any interest in Alexis Sanchez. Oezil might be a possibility at some point.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish we had purchased Sanchez in the summer
Yeah would had possibly been £50m as in last year of contract, however we’d be so much stronger this year going forward.
If had the choice this coming summer when both are free, I’d still only take Sanchez. Ozil half of the time you forget he’s on the pitch
Should Zlatan not extend another year, use some of his wages to lure Sanchez.

04 Dec 2017 18:35:39
Thank Ed002 as always.

02 Dec 2017 10:22:58
Sly reporting United Interest in Leon Goretzka.

Agree1 Disagree3

02 Dec 2017 10:45:39
I hope so, he's a fantastic talent.

{Ed002's Note - This is old news.}

02 Dec 2017 11:25:17
I think 002 told us that united met with his representatives a couple of months back but that his destination was probably elsewhere. But that we had shown interest.

{Ed002's Note - Quite correct.}

02 Dec 2017 12:25:13
Ed do you think we’ll know where he is going by the end of January. Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - Unless it is Bayern Munich the I would think so.}

02 Dec 2017 13:12:27
Hi 002 have united followed up on that initial interest and had more talks or have we moved up the pecking order for his signature do you think? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any "pecking order" per se and MU cannot speak to the player before January.}

02 Dec 2017 13:26:00
I'm sure if Jose wants Goretzka then the club will do all they can to get him. He will want a substantial signing on fee and wages, but MU can pay this. It's going to come down to the player himself and as it stands he wants elsewhere, but the fact MU are interested, that's a good start. It means it's possible.

30 Nov 2017 20:47:29
some of my work colleagues based in France believe PSG will not take up the offer to sign Kylian Mbappe but are confident in signing Alexis Sanchez instead. they think he's off to Manchester united or city and i think this must be why united or whoever leaked a comment that united need to sell before they buy as £160M will be a large pay out for a single player. sounds fantasy football but it was what we were waffling about this afternoon.

Agree2 Disagree7

01 Dec 2017 12:46:45
As far as I'm aware, they don't have an option on the player, PSG have made a commitment to purchase Mbappe next summer.

{Ed001's Note - that was what held up the deal happening is that Monaco wanted a guarantee they would sign him for the agreed price at the end of the loan or they would not agree to loan him.}

30 Nov 2017 17:55:43
Reports in Spain, that Mourinho flew to Madrid on Wednesday to meet with Griezmann. Any truth in this Ed do you know, or is it just click bait.?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know where he was man. My knowledge of click bait may precede yours by a couple of decades. Not really sure what you are referring to but way back Mike Dicken and I were involved in an incident in New York. I doubt that is what you are referring to.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2017 12:06:41
RIP Mike Dicken - brief search reveals quite a character!

{Ed002's Note - Mike went quite a few years ago now.}

Good thread below on the merits of selling Martial or not.
To be honest I thought jose would sell him and he was open to that as per ed002.
I wanted him to go on loan this season in the hope that playing every week at a high level la liga or serie a that he would come back a more rounded experienced player.

I think he has only started 3 league games this season and like all young players he has been inconsistent . He has done well in cl and league cup and off the bench I the league but is that enough to bring him on quickly enough.
He imo is one of the best close control dribblers in world football. He oozes talent but because of his demeanour he looks lazy at times and lacks intensity concentration and focus at times during matches.

Playing weekly his movement and decision making will improve dramatically ( this is what infuriates me when watching him) . This is where I think jose has a dilemma. Because rashford is in the exact same position.

We have 2 great young talents. But while they are learning and developing they will have as many unproductive games as productive couple that with our requirement to compete in the top comps its hard to develop both at the same time and give them enough starts and doubly difficult when they ideally want to play In the same position.

When both play together if they are both on an off day we look toothless but hot when they are on form we look hot but to be honest that's 50/ 50.
Time will tell but i don't see us developing both.

Agree0 Disagree4

28 Nov 2017 19:52:06
Let's be honest developing kids isn't Jose strong point .
Jose has a lot of good traits but that's not one of them .
Tonight is the 11th game martial has started this season with another 8 from the bench .
Lads still only 21 so not doing to bad.

28 Nov 2017 22:34:12
Nice goal too.

29 Nov 2017 09:46:08
Martial is on a different planet to Rashford. He has speed, control, sange-froide and great vision. Rashford has speed. But is otherwise a car crash.

29 Nov 2017 12:50:18
I like rash but martial is a step up imo .
Can't believe people are talking about selling a young talented player like this.
Or saying he will never be a top player or has a poor attitude.

The lad is 21 still has a lot to learn but has absolute bags of talent.

29 Nov 2017 14:01:06
You really don't rate him that highly Ken do you?

I know he can be inconsistent, I'm going to put that down to age but even on a bad day, he is genuinely one of our only players that has the ability to go past a man and do something incredible. I think we would suffer offensively if he were to be sold or sent out on loan.

He of course needs to iron out the inconsistencies but for me he has to be kept, he is in that bracket of top top players (right jred) I understand now lol, and every young player has inconsitent spells. Just look at Raheem Sterling.

29 Nov 2017 15:16:58
I think Rashford. Is going backwards in his development. Is it because he is regular in the first team now and feels that's it
I've made it.
And please could we have lukaku playing in Velcro kit, the ball might stick to him then, He has been woeful of late.
Good display by lindelof tho.
Rock the red.

29 Nov 2017 17:11:28
Angle
Lol.
Martial looks a talent looks a threat and season looks up for it .

For his age and position I don't see much better out there .
You have to give these young lads a chance .
To be fair to Jose he has so this season with martial.
Looks better playing striker as well, that's where the lad himself wants to play .

29 Nov 2017 19:54:11
Why sell a player for £80 mil that would cost us £150mil to get close to replacing him?

29 Nov 2017 21:39:48
Please lay off Rashford as he is a young kid and will have ups and downs. Also he is under a lot of pressure knowing he has Martial Lukaku and Ibra fir competition in his preferred role as central striker. His end product is generally very good. Cut him some slack.

30 Nov 2017 09:14:55
The problem is that Jose appears under pressure to always play Rashford as he is being positioned as a locally grown brand. He is not technically good enough to make it. Won't be best option is to take advantage of the elevated pricing for young stars and sell him now, focusing on Martial.

30 Nov 2017 11:10:51
Angel. I do rate him. I've said above and have always said that he has a dribbling talent that is nearly unrivalled. I never advocated selling him although I thought jose would sell him because he is not know for his patience with young players.
I think the issue is we have 2 players that play I the same position so it would be difficult to get them both enough game time to develop both quickly enough from the club's point if view but akso from their point of view. Martial will only improve with experience like all young players. I thought he would struggle for game time under jose like 40 starts and if he does get 40 starts rash won't so it will be difficult to get both up to speed and keep them happy.

30 Nov 2017 11:54:19
Ken
You argued with me last season he would never be a top player .
Round about the time you where posting Jose would sell him .
Coincidence?

30 Nov 2017 20:16:20
Jred you have a more select memory than Boris Johnson.
You argued that cattermole was as good as matic.
Jose was open to selling him as we know.
I have been 100% consistent on martial. He is getting more game time than I thought he would and has done very well this season in some games and has as the manner said improved both his play and his application so fair play to him it's paying dividends for him and the team.

Fair play to the manger for getting more out of him and fair play to the player who by his own admission was not concentrating fully on his game last year.

30 Nov 2017 21:42:59
Ken
Of course you have Ken, can't imagine why anyone would think differently .

Bags of talent will be a top player imo.

30 Nov 2017 21:58:17
Matic cattermole doh . Lol like I've had to say before I was pretty drunk the one time I posted that .
I was trying to make a very drunken point . Badly .

30 Nov 2017 22:44:14
Phones laptops tablets and guns. should never be in the possession of a drunken man lol xx.

01 Dec 2017 08:41:50
To he fair it's not like i went on about it for a full season.

02 Dec 2017 03:33:32
Both are young and run into blind alleys, time is the only cure.

28 Nov 2017 15:41:23
"Jose wants to sign a new left and right over the next two transfer windows. [james ducker] #mufc"

I'd be amazed if he didn't want that.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2017 16:36:53
James Ducker, mystic bloody Meg. Lol.

28 Nov 2017 17:20:07
I asked him for the lottery numbers. He said its 6 numbers between 1-59.

28 Nov 2017 17:31:57
The predictions of a man named James Ducker
Are obvious even to a sucker
Jose wants to sign
Two players, that's fine
Now bring it on Pep you mother-f.

28 Nov 2017 17:32:19
I know, Jose what's a left-back and right sided forward. No sh! t haha.

28 Nov 2017 22:59:58
RWWD is the winner of this weeks best post 🤣.

28 Nov 2017 01:25:27
20 man squad reported for tomorrow miki, fellaini and shaw not named in squad darmian blind and jessie included.
Is fellaini injured? Or perhaps he is saving him for the arsenal game. Shaw and miki appear to be in the bad books.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2017 11:14:31
Wenger doesn't like to play against physical teams so fellaini is a good option for us against arsenal.

Id have still taken him for watford though.

28 Nov 2017 13:36:43
Fellaini was limping bad against Brighton. Definitely got injured. Hopefully he's back for Arsenal game though.

27 Nov 2017 20:16:54
Hi Eds. Saw a report today saying Martial is unhappy at United and that he is wanted by Real Madrid. Any truth in this? I really hope not. Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea how happy he is but Real Madrid have pretty vast plans over the next two summers but I think he would be no more than padding, so I doubt it needs to be a concern.}

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Nov 2017 21:54:41
Glad to hear it. Many thanks.

27 Nov 2017 13:33:27
There's still some rumours of Ozil and Willian floating around for January. Either or both would be an improvement.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2017 18:13:51
Really big fan of Willian. think he would be a fantastic signing. Ed002, I know you've mentioned he could be an option for us before. I can't remember if you said anything about him in the sharkopod so I am sorry to ask again, but is there any possibility Jose might turn to him again?

{Ed002's Note - There is a possibility but Chelsea would not sell until they have sufficient cover and have told one suitor that he is unavailable.}

28 Nov 2017 07:35:25
Many thanks for that ed.

25 Nov 2017 11:28:21
Don't think pogba in sqaud today.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Nov 2017 13:14:02
Would be disappointing. We are a far better side with Pogba in it.

25 Nov 2017 13:42:07
He is in the squad.

25 Nov 2017 14:07:06
Glad you are right, just heard he wasn't at the hotel with the rest of the sqaud.

25 Nov 2017 14:50:37
I know he’s not not been amazing at left back, but surely Jose can coach Rojo to be our main left back? He’s better than Blind and Young, has decent pace and distribution and plays there for Argentina!

25 Nov 2017 18:51:56
Rojo is a better CB than LB.

25 Nov 2017 22:18:53
Young has been great at left back and nothing I’ve ever seen in Rojo would make me think he could do a better job there at the moment. We need a new left back and if not I think young is the best one, as does Jose.
