Talk Sanchez agent been in talks with Inter and Juventus. Wages stumbling block currently.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2019 19:37:29
His next move says a lot. Bet he stays and picks up the moronic wage we gave him.

15 May 2019 19:59:20
I think he will move. I think it will cost us but i doubt he will be here come next season.
Rash martial and jessie will stay i think and i guess mata lukaku and sanchez will leave this summer.

15 May 2019 20:59:28
Yeah, can't see how he stays. I think it will cost the club dearly but they'll move him on.

I'd imagine Ken if those 3 do go, there will be 2 incoming. Quick and agile forwards who can interchange I'd say. It's the way forward.

15 May 2019 21:02:23
I would keep Mata as he is one of the good guys to have around the dressing room.

15 May 2019 21:39:19
If Sanchez and Lukaku go then I'd be line to keep Mata for one last season. But apparently he wants 2 years. Personally I'd let him go. Too slow, doesn't offer enough on the pitch. But good to keep around the training ground.

16 May 2019 10:59:18
Tired of this good guy around the dressing room, given the state of our team i would suggest he barely has an impact at all. We cannot afford to carry nice guys for the sake of it. This squad is terrible we need players that can perform on the pitch as well as impact the dressing room. Mata is neither of those.

16 May 2019 15:22:54
Fantastic idea to have a nice guy around the dressing room for £5 to £7 million a year. let's bring a court jester in too while we’re at it.

16 May 2019 18:46:06
Singh i doubt you have ever been in the dressing room.

16 May 2019 19:11:52
Very true Ken but i am just going by what i know of him through the media. He could well be a nob. 😂😂😂.

16 May 2019 20:35:11
Nice bloke by all accounts singh😂.

17 May 2019 02:47:17
Nice guys are a bit of a luxury for us at this point.

15 May 2019 05:25:42
Ed002! A lot of media reports saying we are interested in pepe the winger playing for lille. Don't remember him being mentioned in sharkopod. Is there any truth to these rumours. Further, there has been no news on our interest in alderweild (spurs cb), are we still interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - There has not been any approach to Manchester United but there is a maturity issue making others think again at what is a very high price for the player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2019 10:07:18
Thanks for your prompt reply!

15 May 2019 19:55:50
Sounds like a good fit.

14 May 2019 21:57:58
Ed is Griezmann leaving this summer?

I thought he was leaving in winter 2020 and Is Barcelona his most likely destination? .

{Ed004's Note - Looks like he will complete his move to Barca sooner than expected}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 May 2019 22:28:38
Ahh thanks ed. Think me missed the boat on him a few years ago.

14 May 2019 22:53:58
Lucas hernandez has left, rodri looks like he's going to city and now griezmann as well as godin and filipe luis.

If there is one team that plays with the fight and intensity most fans want united to play with its atletico, we should have been involved for these players in all honestly (maybe not filipe luis) . Maybe they are above our level now as we need to look at the tier below.

15 May 2019 07:50:15
Godin is 33 nearly 34.

15 May 2019 08:57:49
I think we probably dodged a bullet with Griezmann a couple of summers ago. I get the feeling if he had come then he’d just be another on our list of players to offload this summer. For all his goals, his attitude stinks. The whole documentary thing last summer now this announcement yesterday, he’s another circus act who thinks he’s above playing football.

14 May 2019 16:50:59
Rumours that we have 'joined the race' for Youri Tielemans.

Agree1 Disagree1

14 May 2019 17:01:43
Be a really good signing. But ed hasn’t indicated we have any interest unfortunately.

14 May 2019 17:27:30
That doesn’t mean we’re not interested Park.

But what some have said is that his attitude is questionable.

He has looked good at Leicester. Hopefully he’s turned a corner but it might also mean he’s found his level.

14 May 2019 17:42:02
If he’s found his level at Leicester, he’ll do a good job for us. Think he’d be a good signing.

14 May 2019 18:32:14
Wazza, I'd bet it does mean we are not interested. Ed is on the ball when it comes to our interests and signings.

14 May 2019 19:30:04
Angel, I’m not disputing that for one second, it’s a big reason I’m on here and the other pages several times a day and I appreciate their insights as much as anybody.

But I’m sure there will be times when something comes out of the blue. Maybe I’m wrong.

14 May 2019 19:38:53
If looking at Leicester midfield players I would look at James Maddison before looking at Tielemans.

14 May 2019 20:17:07
Ndidi is another I would look at.

14 May 2019 20:32:45
The best rumour going on is the aigning of Koulibaly. Wow i can't wqit if he comes in and we get rid of Smalling and jones from the first 11.

You will see a massive improvement and confidence in the team by having a player like Koulibaly come in.

14 May 2019 20:51:17
Do you think we’ll get him Singh? I think the last update was he’s happy where he is.

15 May 2019 10:01:38
Give Napoli what they want and we will get him. I don't he is too happy being in Italy either as he is usually targwted racially.

Money talks and if we offer the right money we will get him.

14 May 2019 12:26:07
Hi Ed02

I mentioned Steven bergwijn a while back, has there been any more movement from mufc for his services or is he likely to go elsewhere?

Hope your well.

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as it was as far as Manchester United are concerned. Several clubs still have an interest and agreement was reached between van Kooperen and another side, but that has a dependency.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 May 2019 03:19:13
Rumours today's says Pogba off to Madrid in a 140m deal? Excellent business than. only if that money doesn't go to pocket like Ronaldo's and we re-invent it immediately for rebuild.

Agree1 Disagree1

14 May 2019 06:20:03
No one is paying that for pogba, that's why madrid and juve are trying to include players in the deal.

If it was my decsion i would sell him to juve and get cancelo and dybala, provided they want to come, whether that's in seperate deals or a swap deal.

14 May 2019 07:09:39
That would be my ideal scenario as well DSG. Two positions covered and poison removed from our dressing room.

I’m sure it will drag on all summer.

14 May 2019 09:13:15
I have some concerns about Dybala, i think he might be a bit of a luxury player that the team isn't good enough to carry right now and I wouldn't want us to get Pogbas huge wages off the books and then give Dybala similar money.

That being said if it was a straight swap pogba for Dybala and Cancelo I'd totally take the gamble just to get Pogbas out of the dressing room, Dybala and Cancelo can't have a more negative impact on the team than Pogba has.

14 May 2019 09:27:38
I would rather do a swap with Madrid for Varane and Kroos. Highly unlikely obviously.

14 May 2019 11:45:37
MonDieu, why go for Kroos? He's already 29. We need to buy young players with pace, power and energy and obviously talent to compete at the top level. Preferably in their mid 20's.

We need to eradicate the quick fix mentality and stop buying the end-of-career type players who are probably looking for a final payday and target younger players with the right attitude and skills.

14 May 2019 13:05:14
We do need a few experienced heads in the dressing room to go with the young talent. But any older heads should already have premier league experience so less settling in is needed.

14 May 2019 13:45:25
Id personally love to see us buy wan bisakka and ndidi if we get that sort if money for pog.

14 May 2019 16:34:21
Would love Loftus Cheek and Declan Rice. They’d sort out central midfield out.

14 May 2019 17:27:19
Apparently Real won’t pay Pogba the wages he wants.

10 May 2019 09:15:14
Reports coming out that we're close to signing Swansea's Daniel James for £15m.

With how inflated the market is this seems like a low risk transfer, anyone know good the lad is / can potentially be?

Agree10 Disagree0

10 May 2019 09:22:28
I don't want to hype the guy up too much but i think people are saying he's the welsh messi.

10 May 2019 09:28:05
Had anyone seen him play?

10 May 2019 09:26:06
Decent lad with blistering pace. In the last year of his contract and playing in the Championship at a club who will see a drop in their parachute payments next season. So 15m seem about right.

I think Ed002 said that he only knows of interest from Leeds. Could be media hype to put pressure on them to conclude a deal quickly.

{Ed002's Note - There is sustained interest from Leeds and Newcastle see Daniel James as a Potential Plan B to another player. Certainly players at Swansea will have been scouted as Premier League clubs search for home grown players, and certainly he is seen as a decent player but I am not aware agreement at this time.}

10 May 2019 09:47:12
Fast as . but raw talent-at £15m reported not a huge financial risk - giggs rates him highly and who knows ; a dele alli type opportunity.?

{Ed002's Note - It is rather different to Dele Alli as he would take up a squad place.}

10 May 2019 10:32:45
Decent player, only young would be an interestingly signing .
The lad is quick quick.

10 May 2019 11:32:45
Buy to loan out maybe?

10 May 2019 11:47:25
I follow my local side Forest quite closely and hence have a decent handle on all things Championship.

James has been a revelation this season, lightening quick, strong and two footed. Has all the attributes to make it at the top level and for me represents a shrewd signing (if it goes through) .

Giggs a big advocate also which has no doubt had some impact.

I think he will be in and around the first team. Maybe 20 appearances or so next season to break him in.

10 May 2019 11:50:47
ed002- I meant as in getting at a bargain price for a young lad with potential- Alli was apparently below £5m but his worth now.

{Ed002's Note - But he did not take up a squad place.}

10 May 2019 11:52:09
I think Cookyman maybe referring to the Dele Ali signing from a lower league team proving to be very successful by being a regular 1st team player and getting into his International team.

10 May 2019 12:05:29
Think that makes sense Eric, from what I've been told he still needs game time. So maybe loaning him back to a championship side or Leeds if they still want him / get promoted.

Defo sounds like he's one for the future.

10 May 2019 12:20:34
cheers ports- some people over complicate statements when there is no need.

10 May 2019 12:22:36
God forbid there is any positive to this haha, looks a good signing, sure we will have 'squad places' to take up. Would be very surprised if we loaned him back.

10 May 2019 14:56:29
ED002 do you mean that Dele Allis age meant he did nit take up a squad space.
Or are you implying that James is just a squad player at the best.

{Ed002's Note - It means that James would take up a place in the 25 man squad which Alli did not.}

10 May 2019 18:12:34
DSG, I just watched him on YouTube for three minutes and he's definitely going to be better than Messi and Maradona combined. Definitely.

10 May 2019 19:59:54
Reminds me of Bale in his early Southampton days. Blistering pace both with and without the ball. I can see why he's worth the gamble.

10 May 2019 20:58:16
Not sure clubs gamble. I would think they have researched and scouted him before making a choice on a move.

10 May 2019 23:26:58
FZZ judging by recent signings we definitely gamble and the house usually wins.

10 May 2019 22:39:05
Thanks ED002.

11 May 2019 10:12:25
I think after a long time we are buying a proper winger otherwise there are always inside forwards mentioned. We need lots of balance in the squad, be in first 11 or 25man squad.

09 May 2019 23:10:45
Jovic was supposedly going to Madrid but Frankfurt say no contact apparently is there any interest from United?
And is he frankfurts to sell or can business be done with Porto?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2019 01:31:42
I think Frankfurt have now purchased him from Benfica (not Porto) and so all dealings are with them. Smart business from Eintracht.

10 May 2019 02:02:01
He's nothing to do with Porto mate. He was at Benfica but is Frankfurts player now.

10 May 2019 13:29:30
My mistake thanks for clearing that up.

09 May 2019 18:00:34
Hello Ed002. I am not intend to ask or shoot on a random name. but with your detail insights it suggest that most or Jose targets are still target. so the player I would like to ask about is Justin Kluivert. Are United still tracking him? What's players status? He was very highly regarded as Ajax player but not settled at Roma. if you have time, please some information?

{Ed002's Note - Actually it is a very good question that I have been sat on for a few weeks. Justin Kluivert (LW/RW) would be a OGS pick and after a poor season in Rome offers will certainly be listened to. He has been another Monchi disaster that has not worked out (and he is not the only one) and I have to say he could be used as a bargaining chip to perhaps eae the extraction of a player from Manchester United. OGS is seen as very much a soft touch and he could potentially be a player those that deal with transfers could use to keep him happy. I hope this helps.}

Agree1 Disagree0

09 May 2019 18:59:49
Are you able to say who the utd player is ed? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It surrounds Pogba.}

09 May 2019 19:00:46
Amazing share. I never knew my question would bring cat out of hat.
So far his name is not mentioned anywhere and I guess if he was target than, he might be under monitor. and who knows while in EL, he can come in and settle.

09 May 2019 19:03:07
If you don't mind my asking, in implying a player to extract do you mean a player roma is interested in or somebody who Ole is desperate to keep but the hierarchy want out?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is nothing to do with Roma wanting a player.}

09 May 2019 19:04:17
Roma interested in Manchester player? Anyone other than Darmian?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

09 May 2019 19:17:14
Thanks ed much appreciated.

09 May 2019 19:17:41
Is he represented by Raiola? I thought Ed will say Darmian. but Pogba?

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}

09 May 2019 19:22:13
OMG. he is also Mini Raiola player. I think by asking this I have hit a jackpot Ed002. You are a star. no a galaxy.

09 May 2019 19:30:53
Both Kluivert and Pogba share an agent, so moving Kluivert to United might "grease the wheels" so to speak with Pogba leaving.

I liked the look of Kluivert when at Ajax. I think he might be a similar case as Depay in moving too soon.

09 May 2019 20:09:38
Who sees OGS as a soft touch and is there any truth in it, if so was that why he was appointed?

{Ed002's Note - Everyone.}

09 May 2019 20:27:45
So how long do you think he will last?

{Ed002's Note - No idea.}

09 May 2019 21:21:07
A left or right side player I ask?

{Ed002's Note - ?}

09 May 2019 21:24:12
I’ve never really seen him player so was wondering what Kluivert’s best position is.

09 May 2019 22:09:09
He hangs to the left.

10 May 2019 10:19:26
People can take ole at face value as the nice young baby faced player he was

But he was under a manager who took no nonsense. I would be very surprised if ole hasn't learnt how to be harsh when needed.

Plus I've heard from within someone of the club he has ripped into the players a fair few times since he's been manager.

Anyone watched klivert to give a view on how he is as a player?

When pogba hopefully gets sold I hope we use some of the money to try and sign neves and saul. would be 2 good signings imo.

10 May 2019 18:40:23
Thanks Ed002 for all your insights and information a always - we are very lucky to have you.

Glad to hear there seems to be a will to move on Pogba. In my opinion, he is a negative influence at the club as it seeks to rebuild. I really hope they find a way of moving Sanchez on too.

Interesting to hear about OGS being viewed as a soft touch. I guess this attitude could have positives (ie handling sensitive players) but also negatives, such as more business-savvy people taking advantage. You would hope, however, that others at the club would intervene and not let this happen.

Thus, my question Ed002, if I may please, is that is it just people in the football business (ie non players) who see OGS as a pushover, or is it the players as well? And, to take it a step further, is this possibly a reason why he was appointed, as he wouldn’t argue with the board or contest decisions in the media like JM? Essentially a “yes” man with no real bite? (Please forgive the crass assumptions and my ignorance of how the game works! )

Hope this isn’t the case as we need a strong personality with a forward thinking vision (shared by his team) if we are to unravel the mess we are in and plot the foundations for a new era.

10 May 2019 22:51:11
Ed002. the red devil reply was completely out of character, was it your P. A? Ha .

11 May 2019 08:37:56
If you don't mind me asking Ed, how would Raiola's ban affect this, if it affects anything?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you are referring to - I don't know what "this" is. His ban has no impact on Pogba moving to Juventus if that is what you are referring to.}

11 May 2019 11:47:21
Thanks Ed, I was referring to the Pogba/ Kluivert element mentioned above, with both players being Raiola clients. How exactly would the ban work if you don't mind me asking? Reports across various news outlets claim it would prevent transfers of his players, but it would be harsh for the players to be penalised for whatever he is being penalised for.

{Ed002's Note - Mino's ban is for three months. Pogba can still move to wherever, and Kluivert will be able to move during the transfer window.}

11 May 2019 13:14:05
Sepp, one doesn't 'hang', one 'dresses'

09 May 2019 17:55:31
This Director of Football rumour mill is just another example of the absolute shambles we have going on internally at the club.
We were linked with some experienced, proven DoF such as the fella's from Roma and Juve, Van Der Saar, Luis Campos who done exciting things at Monaco, even an internal appointment like Marcel Bout but now I have read Rio's name and Fletcher's name. The mind boggles.

Personally I am still happy with Solskjaer, it is so easy to say we should have gone for Poch now they are in the final however, recent form in the Premier League seems to be forgotten. I like the way Ole has been conducting himself, I like the what he has been saying. People seem to forget that this is still not his team, he was brought in to steady the ship and he overachieved in this and suddenly people get carried away and think we are fixed. We are not, there are to many ego's in the team and to many incompetent individuals internally driving the club.

If we get the wrong appointment of a DoF then no manager, Pep, Poch, even the great SAF will have problems to turn this ship around. The otherside of it is if we get the right person for DoF, will they be given the autonomy for the rebuilding of the football club. My fear is not but either way we need a strong minded, proven DoF, otherwise it doesn't matter who is the gaffer, we will just fall further and further behind the 5 teams above us and more worryingly 3 or 4 clubs below us.

Agree7 Disagree2

09 May 2019 18:15:40
Here here.

09 May 2019 18:20:23
Unfortunately Ports we have been liked with many highly qualified people as potential DoF, Luis Campos, Fabio Paratici, Monchi, Andrea Berta, Ralf Rangnick, Michael Zorc and Edwin van der Sar. As well as potential options who have never performed the role but could maybe step up such as Paul Mitchell or our own Marcel Bout.

Now we are being linked with Rio Ferdinand, Darren Fletcher, Paul Scholes and Patrice Evra. All good players for us, but none have held a similar role.

For me this indicates that this DoF or Technical director role won't change much if anything about how the club is being run. We have approached the best and none want it. What does that tell you? Now we are looking at ex-players with no experience. This to me suggests that what we are looking for isn't someone to come in and change things and shake things up, but someone to come in and act as a buffer between the people currently running things and the fans. Someone else to blame when it all goes wrong. Someone to do the boring day to day jobs maybe that the current people running things maybe see as beneath them or a hassle. While the big key important decisions will still be made by the same people who have been ballsing them up for the last 6 years.

{Ed025's Note - i think your right there shappy..

09 May 2019 20:39:06
Good post Shappy and that's why the club ain't going anywhere.

10 May 2019 02:12:41
Guys I understand the thoughts but I don’t recall it being said that Fletcher would be the DoF. I think they were just talking ‘a role’ within the club. Given the recent diluting of United values and ethos I think having ex players around the club (who experienced the winning culture) is a good move. I like that management seems to have recognised this and is prepared to bring some back in. It has to be the right role though. A DoF should be knowledgeable about the job.

10 May 2019 10:28:34
Spot on by the way ports.

10 May 2019 16:22:38
Is it possible that the person that the club want as DOF is currently under contract elsewhere so they are keeping quiet on any rumours until the summer.
There appears to be so many different links for the past 6 months from creditable options through to completely left field.
I might and and probably am wrong but I would like it if the club are trying to stop these leaks out of the club and the work has gone on for the right person to come in.

11 May 2019 13:27:29
If we're going to have an ex-player as Dof, Roy Keane gets my vote.
