Hi Guys,

I just looked over to the european pages and saw a question asked about Greezman and Diego Cista by Deano which was answered by Ed002.

Here it goes :

Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid were close to signing Diego Costa on Friday but played up wrecking the deal. Clubs do not generally look to business in January but Diego Costa may be a player they look to again. Griezmann is less likely to move in January than in the summer but with Vitolo available it is perfectly possible that Carrasco might be available - and I am aware of one club who are keen. With Manchester United adding Lukaku and making the dumb decision over Ibrahimovic then the need for Griezmann goes away unless there is a plan to push him out to left wing where he has now transitioned away from. So perhaps Griezmann would be an option for next summer (unless MU again sign Ibrahimovic), perhaps they will look to buy him and waste him on the left in January or perhaps they will look again for a left winger in January - we will have to see. }.

Agree0 Disagree0

Play griezmann behind lukaku and miki on the right or vice versa.

{Ed004's Note - I am hoping by January that either Martial or Rashford have nailed down a place on the left and that Griezmann is signed to improve on Mata. That way we would have a bench of probably Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Rashford/Martial and Ibrahimovic.}

04 Sep 2017 15:25:04
I think ed2 makes some very good points above.

04 Sep 2017 16:14:37
Personally I don't see the need for griezmann. We have Miki an Mata foe the number 10. We need someone for out wide.

04 Sep 2017 16:23:48

Griezmann is better than both of them players.

04 Sep 2017 17:53:27
I think Carrasco for right wing would be my preference.

04 Sep 2017 17:57:12
Miki's got how many assists this season and not even playing at full potential.

04 Sep 2017 18:56:02
Just because we don't have Griezman doesn't make him better than Mkhi and Mata. We've waited whole of last season for Mkhitaryan to get familiar to the league and it doesn't make sense to shift him to the right for someone who isn't even at the club. Who knows what will happen till next summer. Maybe Monaco produce one more world class player and we go all out for him rather than Griezman.

04 Sep 2017 20:08:57
If miki adapts to pur leage and plays to his best he will be a top top player.

04 Sep 2017 20:13:18
I don't see the point on splashing 100 mill on a fancy name when we'd have to move players around to accommodate him. Moving Miki turns him into another square leg in a round hole. Something I thought we as fans had had enough of the last few years and wanted to move away from. And not something Jose would be likely to do. Instead we'd be better off in signing a genuine singer or two.

04 Sep 2017 20:26:35
I hear Adele is available mort 😁.

04 Sep 2017 20:29:13
Good thinking Mort. Would improve the Christmas Karioke no end 😂.

04 Sep 2017 21:40:03
Play her in goal, nothng would get past her.

04 Sep 2017 21:56:06
Less of the body-shaming, Tony!

05 Sep 2017 09:34:38
If micki has a good season why spend a fortune on griezmann. Would rather spend the money on a quality wide player ( not bale) and also look at improving our full back options.

05 Sep 2017 10:08:14
Think it's pretty simple tbh if the manager thinks we need him he will try for him if not he won't.
I think the days of us buying players unnecessarily are over.

05 Sep 2017 10:31:53
Watched a lot of miki b4 he came to us and altho its a different league, he is immense when he's on form!

If he can hit that form in the epl he will be phenominal for us leaving no need for grease-man.

05 Sep 2017 13:49:37
When a great player like Griezmann becomes available and asking for the MU move (If true), then you sign him. Worry about where to play him afterwards. He'll clearly replace Mata in the side. However it's a squad game and I'd rather lose Ibra in the squad and sign Griezmann. I think then we are as good as any side in Europe on paper.

05 Sep 2017 16:11:46
He had his chance to move and blew it. We have higher priorities.

And by all accounts our kareoke is shocking.

05 Sep 2017 21:34:43
I usually agree with Ed002, but was Ibra really a dumb decision? Cost no transfer fee, will show up at a time in the season when the squad needs reinforcements but he won't be cup-tied like every other great player. I agree that starting next summer I'd rather let Zlatan leave if it means making space for a player like Griezmann, but to call it a stupid move, bc it might have stopped us from signing a cup-tied player in January? Simply don't agree.

{Ed002's Note - Stifling other players, stopping MU buying another stiker and costing enormous amounts of money. It was a dumb decision.}

05 Sep 2017 22:53:43
But wouldn't buying another striker, also on big wages have stifled the same players and also be a dumb decision.

06 Sep 2017 08:52:57
I agree Mort, that honestly is the first time have heard someone say resigning (which was always the plan) Ibra was a bad move.
Proven player, great impact, different dimension, vast experience.
No doubt he'll understand he cannot walk straight into the team and we know where he can play.
Had we signed a new player, we would have so many unanswered questions.

07 Sep 2017 20:12:08
Totally agree melwing.

02 Sep 2017 20:01:48
Qatari Royal family trying to buy Manchester United apparently. Be very surprised if Glazers sold without legacy bonuses or whatever.

Agree2 Disagree3

02 Sep 2017 20:42:44
Old story doing the rounds from 2011. i think the glazers will see through one more round of tv deals at least before selling.

02 Sep 2017 21:05:14
Yes I have no doubt this is regurgitated news. And I think with Brexit we will have the Glazers for many more years. Just my opinion.

03 Sep 2017 02:43:49
Surely Brexit and the resulting weak pound makes it a more attractive proposition? Or would it be purchased in dollars as it's listed on the NYSE?

03 Sep 2017 09:10:58
Unless after seeing how transfer fees have gone this year they don't want to be spending 300 million every summer.

03 Sep 2017 11:40:55
USD probably going to be smashed soon, (already getting hammered), so whilst GBP and USD are weak it may be an opportune time for a deal. Especially with Qatar sanctions and other geo-political problems emerging in Qatar they may want to act quickly to secure more solid overseas assets that aren't dependent on natural gas for example.

03 Sep 2017 13:14:44
Im sure Ed002 mentioned maybe 18 month back that the Glazers were actually looking to sell around now, can any of the Eds confirm this?

{Ed002's Note - The exchange rate has shelved plans most foreign owners had for selling for now.}

01 Sep 2017 11:36:34
Did Bruno Amorim actually sign for Us?

{Ed004's Note - Doesn't look like it}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2017 06:47:41
First of all, great work all the eds. And if i could bug you one more time ed002, did we even try to buy someone yesterday? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - There was an enquiry about Perosoc but they had already screwed that up.}

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Sep 2017 10:25:27
I believe we ended up going bare foot in the end, couldn't find a suitable perosoc's.

31 Aug 2017 22:06:31
City have launched a late bid for the much needed Dutchman Phil de Seets.

Agree16 Disagree1

01 Sep 2017 00:44:51
Good one mort.

01 Sep 2017 05:27:38
Nice one. I saw this on the Spurs site.

31 Aug 2017 22:13:12
BREAKING: Arsenal have had a £45m bid accepted for Chinese sensation Fu-Kin No-Wan.

31 Aug 2017 21:41:10
Mahrez to chelski so willian to utd. would be a good move for us IMO.

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2017 21:04:40
Any Sunstance in the rumour of Bacary Sagna to United?
Saw it on Bleacher Report earlier.
A one year contract may have its benefits.

Agree0 Disagree3

31 Aug 2017 22:11:24
Highly doubtful.

31 Aug 2017 08:08:46
Riyad Mahrez given permission to leave Algeria's team camp to complete a move to a new club. Manchester United bound?

Agree1 Disagree14

31 Aug 2017 08:15:56
Could also be going to Arsenal as a replacement for Sanchez.

31 Aug 2017 08:21:13
I like him but don't think he is a jose player.

If I had to guess, I'd say Wenger will bite the bullet and spend the money to buy him. I think they have ran out of other options.

The other alternative is Roma who have been trying to buy him all summer.

31 Aug 2017 08:56:00
Read that Arsenal were out of the picture for him.

31 Aug 2017 09:05:05
I would go for him. For 40m, more or less proven in the PL, will give more options on the right wing.

31 Aug 2017 09:06:10
BBC reporting Arsenal are not in contention to sign him.

31 Aug 2017 10:32:45
Barca bound.

31 Aug 2017 10:51:33
** **** Mourinho has been spotted in Central London. on his phone.

Gotta love Transfer Deadline Day.

31 Aug 2017 10:54:04
Chelsea or Spurs.

31 Aug 2017 10:57:29
Chelsea bound.

31 Aug 2017 11:40:59
We should go willian if that's true. better player and both play on the right hand side.

31 Aug 2017 12:12:29
Doesn't he live in London and own a phone for communicating purposes?

31 Aug 2017 12:39:47
Really hope not. Bad attitude an slacked off last season.

31 Aug 2017 14:04:14
good player.

31 Aug 2017 14:26:22
Good player, but no better than what we have. Pass, and wait for Greizmann for me.

31 Aug 2017 14:16:35
Neil custis is reporting we have bid for willian any of the eds know anything about this?

{Ed001's Note - no sorry.}

29 Aug 2017 10:42:07
Ed was reading that United might make a late bid for alexes sanchez as they see him better value than perisic just wondering if you know of any interest from United thanks.

{Ed004's Note - I'm really hoping there is some truth behind it. However, I think it is is highly unlikely}

Agree1 Disagree3

29 Aug 2017 12:56:07
I'd rather have Sanchez than Bale. I think Arsenal would rather sell to us than City. Maybe offer then £60-£70. Great player.

29 Aug 2017 13:19:13
It's a nearly done deal to City. All that is holding the transfer is Arsenal's last bit of self respect. Once they come up with how to face the fans, the deal will go through.

29 Aug 2017 13:51:05
I said yesterday I really can't see a better solution for us.

29 Aug 2017 14:11:47
A lot of us have said it all summer. He would be the ideal player to take the number 7 shift. Such a shame we're not interested.

29 Aug 2017 15:32:23
I seem to remember before he signed for Barcelona either him or his dad were United fans?

29 Aug 2017 15:48:31
Remember that time Sky Sports reported Gundogan to United was a done deal and he ended up at City. wouldn't it be nice if it happened again with Sanchez just in our favor this time.

29 Aug 2017 16:18:31
50 mill an smalling.

29 Aug 2017 17:37:10
Sanchez is a mercenary and will choose the club who pays him the most. City will just keep adding more money on top of what we offer.

Arsenal would probably prefer to sell to City as Arsene hates Jose with a passion. Add the fact we have no confirmed interest.

Have to say it's extremely unlikely, but if we did become interested then we may be able to stand a small chance.

The new Manchester United number 7, and I do believe he was a fan as a child. Means nothing these days mind. So I'd be surprised.

29 Aug 2017 18:09:27
It's the signing I have hoped for all summer for us.
Adding him would seriously put us up there as serious contenders on all fronts
We would have a great depth of attacking talent, especially playing in 4 competitions
Sometimes that one signing can make the difference and I truly believe he would be it.

29 Aug 2017 18:10:29
In my opinion I would be less surprised if we end up with mahrez than sanchez. I don't think we will sign either really and kinda hope griezman is still our target once a. madrid can replace him.

29 Aug 2017 18:26:54
Draxler to Man Utd and give him the no. 7!

29 Aug 2017 20:18:05
Jose wants Mahrez.

29 aug 2017 20:40:27
get the feeling that the next couple of days will be even more crazy and frantic than usual.

29 Aug 2017 20:51:37
Syd apparently he turned down a hefty pay rise. Its RvP part 2. Ambition over money.

29 Aug 2017 21:47:45
If an absolutely world class player like Bale or Sanchez become available, great. But I don't want us to buy another attacking player just because. Perisic, Mahrez, no thanks. I think we're fine for this season, and have the option for Griezmann in january or next summer. If an opportunity comes up, take it, but I don't want us buying just for the sake of it, especially if the player doesn't improve our starting XI. For instance, I don't know if either Perisic or Mahrez starts over Mickey, Mata, Rashford or Martial. I doubt it, and therefore, we don't really need them, especially at those prices.

29 Aug 2017 21:15:44
Nothing wrong with mercenaries Syd imagine if we got Hannibal in for the right side and B. A as a midfield enforcer and maybe Murdoch as striker back up 😂.

29 Aug 2017 23:32:14
We need a proper winger and one like Sanchez able to play of both wings is a real asset. Additionally I would love to see Bale here too. Can you imagine Sanchez Bale Lukaku up front salivating at the thought but I know it's most unlikely. Unless Madrid sign someone I can't see Bale being released. Sanchez I think will fancy playing with City whose attack is very strong and style will suit him and he is probably more likely to win the titles he craves with them than us at the moment.

29 Aug 2017 23:39:53

30 Aug 2017 00:25:24
Lol mort. It's good to have Sydney's synical self back, but to be fair you could argue that hefty pay rise wouldn't be close to what man city would offer.
But I hope your still right. I still like to theorize once your rich, you don't obsess over more money generally. But I could be wrong.

30 Aug 2017 02:02:08
No way we could BA on that plane on deadline day. Unless we could get him to drink some nice cold refreshing milk 😂.

30 Aug 2017 02:16:53
Surely Murdoch is a goalie. All he needs is a dodgy moustache.
Jones as Face, maybe?

30 Aug 2017 20:11:19
Do you pity me ken?

31 Aug 2017 11:42:51
Don't think we are one bit interested. we are looking for a right sided player and he likes to play on the left.

28 Aug 2017 22:17:59
Reading a lot (mainly skysports) liverpool big in for lemar but also small rumours we are now in for him? just wondered any of the eds about know anything about this?

Cracking site been reading for yrs with couple of posts (now under new nane due to hotmail) keep. up the good work eds! No idea where i'd be without this!

{Ed004's Note - I don't think there is anything in the rumours that we have bid for him}

Agree1 Disagree2

28 Aug 2017 23:31:18
Cheers ed! What do you make of him? As i say to a lot friends i only see these players in champ league which have looked good but for the prices branded are they really worth it?

{Ed004's Note - Lemar is a very good player. Not as good as Silva or Mbappe. However, he has a brilliant deliver and great technique. Just lacking a bit of pace to be a truely elite wide player}
