any of the eds think united will try push spurs for dier or are they concentrating on matic? is semedo still a possibility? rumours in portugal of a bid from us. thanks as always 👍.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Matic and Semedo. I would think Dier would be an option.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2017 01:41:38
I am a big fan of Semedo. He would be a great addition at right back.

19 Jun 2017 18:41:40
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
Graham Hunter on Sly now supporting Ed002s comments re: Ronaldo. There isn't anything directly linked to United about Ronaldo's current situation.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2017 19:12:23
United haven't said there was either tbf, just an easy link to make. Pretty sure United will keep an eye on it, but also get on with the transfers they are currently dealing with. Don't think anyone really believes Ronaldo will leave in the first place anyway.

19 Jun 2017 19:23:59
Is ELvis really dead?

19 Jun 2017 19:36:09
There, s a guy works in our chip shop swears he, s Elvis.
Hope we don, t lose track of the targets we are reported to be interested in. Ronaldo would be a great addition to any team, But not if we miss out on 3 or 4 other targets who are cheaper and younger. Think it's the old Madrid mind games again, Few years ago the Spanish council wiped out 400 million debt for Real Madrid, So 14 million of tax issues is nothing to them. We had Ronaldo, he was immense for us, But let him ride of into the sunset, Let us concentrate on achievable targets.

19 Jun 2017 20:35:12
Thanks for the replies.
I agree United haven't confirmed it either but it's not that surprising to see the media and several fans thinking/ hoping it could happen based on the situation. Plus Jose's 'surprise' comment could also point towards it in some minds.
Once again well done to the Eds for giving us a better idea on this one before it turns into another WS.

18 Jun 2017 09:50:11
Duncan Castles reporting we want Ronaldo. He seems reliable enough source.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 Jun 2017 10:01:19
Will end up at psg if he leaves.

18 Jun 2017 11:41:49
Will sign a new contract at Madrid and they will pay his tax bill.

18 Jun 2017 12:03:50
Madrid will not pay his tax bill. He may stay but the club will not pay for his mistakes if he is found guilty.

18 Jun 2017 12:44:36
Maybe not officially. but I'm sure Madrid will offer enough bonuses etc to give him more than enough to pay it off.

18 Jun 2017 13:27:01
Which will be subject to more tax 😐

Ronaldo ain't going to happen fellas. Let's move on.

18 Jun 2017 15:06:12
Di Marzio has just said Ronnie wants the move back and has told Mendes to do whatever he can to bring him back. Still seems a bit far fetched, can't see it happening : (.

18 Jun 2017 15:18:05
If and it's a big if he moves there is only one destination can you imagine woodys face if he brought him back! It would be the biggest transfer in football history imo both financially and in terms of exposure.

It would be a huge deal for the club.

Oh and if it did happen I would have a cheeky tenner on us for the champions league next season 😉.

18 Jun 2017 16:23:55
Does anyone think that Adidas would help with the financial if Ronny comes back and James along?

18 Jun 2017 16:57:39
666 Why would Adidas help make the move happen. There is no way on this planet that it would happen as it doesn't benefit them in any way, shape or form.

18 jun 2017 18:22:42
yeah they will be jumping with glee to see him plastered in nike at every opportunity.

19 Jun 2017 04:42:28
Bald Duncan gets his news mostly from mendes, it would be in mendes's interest to have utd interested in ronaldo would help in his new contract negotiations, by end of the window ronaldo will have had a change of heart thanks to a new contract and we will sign morata.

19 Jun 2017 07:08:54
Amazing talent and work-ethic apart, doesn't say much about him that he squeaks at paying his tax bill and throws his dummies out of the pram, demanding the parent club pay it, even though he must be worth hundreds of millions.

But we all know he'll won't leave Madrid this season: they'll come to some sort of deal. Let's concentrate on original targets and get them in before pre-season.

19 Jun 2017 09:37:26
He's kicking a stink up so Real pay his tax bill then he will sign a new deal with them.
Some united fans are obsessed with him, he left us 7 seasons ago. let it go for god sake.

19 Jun 2017 09:42:16
We need to move on from Ronaldo and build a team for the next decade. I hope to god we don't do anything stupid. He is not the future and the past imo.

19 Jun 2017 10:03:29
Why the hell would RM pay his tax bill? They already pay his wages. If he doesn't pay his taxes it has nothing to do with RM.

Those who think RM will simply pay his taxes are living on another planet.

19 Jun 2017 10:48:17
MAZE. "why the hell would RM pay his tax bill"
Errr let me think so he doesn't leave the club.
This reminds me a certain my Ramos last season. says he wants to leave then gets offered a massive new deal and suddenly everything is ok again.
Ronaldo was 7 seasons ago, some people just can't let it go.

19 Jun 2017 11:59:22
14 million is nothing to Madrid in respect of keeping ronaldo at the club, he probably makes the club that and more by himself in merch etc so it would make commercial sense to hand him a chunky signing on bonus to pay the bill.

19 Jun 2017 12:13:47
Do you really think the biggest club in the world will be bent over a barrel? What happens when next season superstar has tax issues should they pay that also? Heck maybe they should just fix up Messi's tax bill too to keep the league attractive.

Get real. If Ronaldo has tax problems it is his problem nothing to do with Madrid. If he wants to throw his panties out his pram then RM will most certainly flick him the bird and send him on his way.

19 Jun 2017 12:33:21
Seen as janujaz got 5 million signing bonus when he signed a new deal with us. I don't see why it's so hard to believe ronaldo would get 14 from Madrid. Unless of course you don't think there's 9 million difference between janujaz and ronaldo - in which case you are the one on a different planet 😂
but hey. My bad for having a different opinion. I shall "get real" immediately. 👍.

19 Jun 2017 13:04:11
What has this got to do with januzaj?

19 Jun 2017 13:18:19
That if united give janujaz (average player) a 5mil signing on bonus for no reason, why wouldn't Madrid give ronaldo (world class) 14 million as a signing on bonus to pay his tax bill and to keep him happy - like simo1975 said, this is too similar to ramos and we all know how that turned out. let's be fair, we are probably just getting used as a bargaining tool for a new improved contract like we always do.
I get - and agree with - what you're saying about Madrid not being bent over the barrel, but for the sake of keeping a player like ronaldo for 'only' 14 million, they would be stupid not to. Especially when the replacement (mbappe by the rumours) would cost 10 times that.

19 Jun 2017 13:19:27
I personally would love ronaldo to come back, but if you held a gun to my head and made me put a bet on at the bookies, my money would be on a Madrid stay and a nice shiny new contract to go with it.

19 Jun 2017 13:47:24

"If he wants to throw his panties out his pram then RM will most certainly flick him the bird and send him on his way. "

Brilliant, made me laugh that statement has :-D.

19 Jun 2017 13:54:48
Just read that the Real Madrid president has called a press conference for tonight so we might find out more then.

19 Jun 2017 16:11:52
i don't think its the size of the tax bill that worries Ronaldo, (his company have £200 million worth of assets) but the possibility of prosecution just like Messi and Neymar. Maybe he thinks if leaves the country the prosecution will go away.

19 Jun 2017 16:19:30
If they were smart, RM would let him go. If they sell now they will probably get around £150m and will clear a massive wage off their books. Given his age and the probability that he only has 2 or 3 good seasons left in him - that seems like a great bit of business to me.

Conversely I think it would be a good bit of business for us too in the short term.

The only party that wouldn't benefit from the deal is Ronaldo himself - which is why I don't see it happening.

20 Jun 2017 13:56:13
£ 150m? You do know that the man is 32 years old ;D?

17 Jun 2017 14:31:41
Ramon Calderon stating that the Morata transfer has been agreed, hope it is true but i doubt it.

Agree6 Disagree2

20 Jun 2017 07:09:07
Are you still sticking with this story?

17 Jun 2017 08:56:48
Some Utd bloggers this morning saying we're letting Josh Harrop go. Anyone have any info?

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Jun 2017 11:20:50
Apparently Preston are after him? So it says in the LEP.

17 Jun 2017 18:12:50
Cheers Kidder. He goes to Preston, rips up the league and scores 20+ and we go back in for him next season for 15mill ish. With Keane in mind it Feels like groundhog day.

19 Jun 2017 07:23:40
More will leaner than Michael for me- no great loss.

17 Jun 2017 08:53:06
I would rather go for Belotti than Morata! Belloti is more like a drogba type player - will be good to annoy defenders!

Agree8 Disagree6

16 Jun 2017 23:58:56
50m for dier? does mourinho really want him that badly?

Agree3 Disagree3

17 Jun 2017 14:26:56
He is the sort of player he likes, defensive midfielder but can also slot into centre back if needed during a game.

16 Jun 2017 17:00:06
Craig Norwood has just tweeted that Perisic is due for a medical this weekend.

Agree2 Disagree14

16 Jun 2017 17:44:48
No he never.

16 Jun 2017 21:05:00
My bad. someone tweeted from a copy/ fake account of CN.

16 Jun 2017 10:46:20
I see us linked with Andre Gomes from Barcelona 30-40 mill in papers today, they apparently want to off load him as he hasn't fitted in .

Question: I remember lots of posters here saying we should have been in for him 18 months ago -i don't know much about him- do those same posters still want him, has his underwhelming season put you off . and who would he replace if he fits us? . i understand we can't buy everyone but as his name has come up today.

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Jun 2017 12:13:00
In a heartbeat, cool on the ball and threads a great pass very Carrickesque.
The only query I would have about him is - How good is he at sitting and holding?
Not sure about that aspect of his game but this is the part we are lacking. At the price quoted (£30m-£40m) definitely seems to be worth a punt if he is available at all.

16 Jun 2017 12:29:42
i always readily admit I watch little european football, but I do remember some lads on here very annoyed we weren't in for him when it was obvious he was on the move last time.

16 Jun 2017 12:51:54
Didn't rate him much then. don't rate him much now.

16 Jun 2017 13:38:18
Every time i watched him for Barcelona he seemed more and more like a tom cleverley type player, lots of backwards and sideways passes, very little risk taking and not really brilliant defensively either.

16 Jun 2017 16:32:47
Would be my 227th choice. Don't rate him at all and the epl would not suit him at all imo.

16 Jun 2017 19:19:29
I agree with ken. I've seen him play on several occasions this season along side many of us I'm sure on both CL an La Liga. Hasn't impressed me at all.

17 Jun 2017 00:07:09
Another nonsense rumour as nothing is currently happening today on the transfer market. We only signed a player yesterday! I can't believe we haven't signed another within 24 hours.

17 Jun 2017 00:18:14
Pogba and Ander are far superior than him, don't see him being more than a squad player.

16 Jun 2017 23:48:07
We don't need him. We already have pogba and Ander in midfield to do the pretty stuff. We need a destroyer. A brick wall to shield the defence.

Someone mobile with a bit of pace and knows how to tackle.

17 Jun 2017 12:17:35
I think he would be a very shrewd signing!

His passing game is very good and definitely sit behind Pogs and Herrera allowing Pogba to play more advanced!

At 23 he will continuely get better!

17 Jun 2017 14:19:30
No thanks - a nothing player for me. Barely notice him and we have enough of those.

17 Jun 2017 16:59:10
Carrick was one of those players, don't hear much from him yet he made the team tick!

Barcelona aren't using Gomes in the right way in my opinion? I admit he looks dire in that Barça side, but use him correctly and he looks a worldie!

I'm sure José knows him well enough to use him more effectively? And he's only 23!

16 Jun 2017 02:27:54
I have a question for the Eds. With Donnarumma not signing a new deal at Milan is he a viable option for Real Madrid. Either way has interest in De Gea cooled or been dropped and could a deal for Morata change anything regarding de gea and Madrid.

{Ed001's Note - yes, no, no.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2017 09:09:58
If Madrid get a different keeper I could see De Gea staying with us for many years. there's no other club out there which could prize him away. we need to keep hold of him at all costs.

16 Jun 2017 09:29:59
said the same last night- the kid seems bound for Rmadrid -which sorts them out for 10-12 years - he can walk away in 12 months so RM can bid silly money now .25 mill as an opener and still expect to get him for way less than his real value, maybe even in January - will be a lot cheaper than DDG anyway for them.

16 Jun 2017 11:53:21
I'm glad De Gea is following the beliefs of United fans with regards his Mrs' moaning about Manchester:

United > Kids > Wife.
