Does anyone know why our official website are still running this

"Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos. '

And why he has not officially been signed?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2018 08:17:59
Personal terms perhaps not ironed out or location of the player and getting a pic of him sat down with a shirt.

07 Jun 2018 09:18:10
That looks like he has officially signed to me, what more do you want?

07 Jun 2018 15:08:22
Gds i want world domination. moo hah ha

Was just curious as to why it did not officially say he has signed. Just says we have an agreement with his club. I thought the contract would have been sorted prior to his medical. and just needed his signature when completed.

07 Jun 2018 20:13:25
Guess it’s work permit related.

08 Jun 2018 06:45:14
They have to make a Brazilian themed signing video featuring him and Neymar but Neymar is busy atm so we have to wait?

06 Jun 2018 01:39:27
Good to see a bit of work being done with Fred and Dalot. going to be a big summer this year for Mourinho to try and wrestle the title. It's pretty obvious he is going with mainly older and trusted players. No more time for Shaw and maybe unfortunately Martial. Shedloads will be spent and I think it will look something roughly like a 4-2-2-2 or 4-4-2 diamond like Mours days at Inter. With the wingbacks providing the width.

CB - Toby, Bailey
WB - Dalot, Sandro
DM - Fred, Matic
AM - Bale, Pogba
CD - Lukaku, Sanchez

That is a pretty strong, powerful and Mourinho-like team. Can't say that I always love his style of play, demeanor or treatment of players but we got to back him. With this team we could do damage next season. Would like to hear everyone's thoughts.

Agree1 Disagree1

Can't see us getting Bale to be honest. Even if we do how often are all 11 fit and it turns out how you expect? How much have you seen of Fred for example to know he will suddenly be in as first choice, I assume most had Schneiderlin in that spot when he signed just because he is a shiny new signing. The important thing for me also is the full squad, not just the signings and first 11.

Also, Dalot is 19 with little experience, there is minimal chance he replaces Toni V this season in my opinion.

05 Jun 2018 19:48:34
Sounds like Aston Villa might be having a fire sale. Jack Grealish anyone . Can be a worldie on his day and a type of player Jose loves! 😆😆.

Agree0 Disagree3

05 Jun 2018 19:53:21
Never seen or read him being a Worldie BRFO. Good player but yet to cut it consistently at Premier level and at price being mentioned I would sooner go elsewhere.

05 Jun 2018 23:51:16
For the right price however i would have a punt especially if we loose homegrown players? Carrick, Smalling and Jones.

Whats the minimum requirement in the team.

05 Jun 2018 15:28:01
I love the way Karius has contributed to the world of sports science. After having the world's experts examine all the medical evidence given to them, they have educated me in a way that I believe that the answer was always there but undiscovered. Don't have someone sh*t in goal for a professional football match.

Agree1 Disagree3

05 Jun 2018 20:38:52
I don't understand what your point is? Ignore the concussion because he's crap?

06 Jun 2018 12:40:14
Lol! Nice one Sepp.

06 Jun 2018 14:18:56
Lol there's always one. Yes Sepp that is what he means, he was 100% serious as well.

06 Jun 2018 18:31:44
You're right, GDS2, it was hilarious.

06 Jun 2018 21:42:13
What? Don't get this one supasub.

04 Jun 2018 18:23:37
Wonder how it feels to make Fellaini your first summer signing after the departure of a legendary manager #emeryOut! Given (hopefully🤞🏻) Welbeck, Fellaini and Sylvestre and got Sanchez and RVP in return, oh how the tables are turning, so satisfying.

'Long ball Mourinho, could never imagine a player like Fellaini at Arsenal, wouldn't suit our 'beautiful' style of play' hehe🎈🎁🎉🎊.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2018 22:52:14
How will we win without him? : (.

04 Jun 2018 22:53:21
He'll improve them. He'll play the N'Zonzi role that Emery had at Sevilla. He will also make them less susceptible and more potent in the air and he's free.

05 Jun 2018 00:59:18
He'll play the N'Zonzi role even though he can't actually play football?

05 Jun 2018 00:59:18
He'll play the N'Zonzi role even though he can't actually play football?

06 Jun 2018 22:04:44
He can’t okay the N’Zonzi role for us but miraculously can for Arsenal? He’s clearly off otherwise he’d have signed - good luck to him wherever he goes but I won’t be sad to see him leave.

07 Jun 2018 07:23:47
He always tries hard. He offers a plan B and is a regular in a decent Belgium team because he can play good football not just because he is tall. I would keep him as a good squad player if it were possible.

04 Jun 2018 11:29:10
Not United related but how on earth can the Germans leave Sane out of their squad? He must be absolutely gutted, been on fire this season, and I could bet money he has a better return than most of the German forwards being taken instead.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jun 2018 11:51:44
It’s crazy! He has been sensational this year I’m a real fan. Proper old school winger who keeps the width. Apparently he has struggled of late playing for Germany and low hasn’t really found a way of using him effectively. Think it is a mistake because he has had a great season. Would have loved him at united.

04 Jun 2018 16:05:43
I know it's inSane. Or should that be out-Sane.

05 Jun 2018 09:54:46
Bet its Jose's fault.

05 Jun 2018 11:16:13
Asked to play a different role for Germany and to be honest hasn't played that well for Germany.
Doesn't look that good for Germany, sensational for city .
What a difference a manager and tactics can make to a player.

{Ed002's Note - I understand from an ex-Germany player that Sane has attitude issues that means other players tend to keep him at arms length. As such he is not seen as a "team player" and that is the reason for his exclusion.}

05 Jun 2018 11:43:10
Cheers ed, Germany play a very different style to city I don't think it suits him as much . Looks a far better player for city.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with style. It is to do with with his "I've made it big" attitude and even though there was a great deal of surprise about him being left out there was not too much shock. There had been an attempt at an intervention using a third party but he wasn't interested. I have no doubts Guardiola will explain everything toi him.}

05 Jun 2018 11:57:43
I think you should be picked on merit and he has been average for Germany.
Looks a far better player for city playing a completely different role .

05 Jun 2018 15:52:49
Is it similar for Nainngolan? I literally can't believe he hasn't been selected for Belgium.

I bet you could make a phenomenal team of 'black sheep' for the World Cup if you had a misc team, some incredible players not selected for their nations.

03 Jun 2018 22:23:12
Think we need a new keeper as well, now.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2018 13:08:50
Why Stevie?

04 Jun 2018 13:44:33
Dave made an awful mistake in the Spain/ Switzerland game. Time for him to go. He's on a downward spiral.

03 Jun 2018 16:13:50
Has our interest in Youri Tielemans dried up? 😂.

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Jun 2018 20:55:02
Ronnie? 😂😂.

02 Jun 2018 09:36:43
Remember when we all wanted William Carvalho, well he's free to leave Sporting apparently with them trying to arrange a transfer for him.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jun 2018 12:25:28
WRD, I wonder if we all wanted him and of those that did, how many have seen him play. I have never seen him play, nor Fred, nor most p the overseas players we are linked with. If Carvalho was that good, good enough for us, he would have been snapped up by now.

Pastore has been mentioned recently, there’s a reason he is being released. Moura was another one, hardly set the world on fire at Spurs has he?

This isn’t aimed at you my friend, but it does seem that many people get over excited about signing someone, anyone. Dalot is a perfect example. He may have huge potential but he has only made 6 appearances for the first team and yet people are massively excited about it. 6 appearances for Porto does not make you ready to play for United any time soon. It seems that a new signing must be better than what we have, irrespective of who they are.

My views on Jose are well known but the shake up in his backroom staff is very interesting, I wonder if he has realised that he needs to freshen things up and consider other approaches. If he has then I think we will get more out of the players we have.

As for new signings I think Toby would be excellent, he is far more assured than our current CBs. I would do hope Lindelof develops more, he started to look much more confident so maybe it was a Vidic settling in period, albeit a longer one.

We need creativity, energy, and dynamism in midfield, I have no idea if Fred has these, we also need to play Pogba where he can do damage, and get the best out of Sanchez who right now looks like a very silly signing. Rashford needs to be encouraged not slated in public, I still think Shaw can make it with the right management, and beyond that we probably need to strengthen the FBs and have them play overlapping energetic football. I have no idea who those payers should be, but I won’t be wetting myself every time a new name is mentioned.

02 Jun 2018 14:03:16
No offence taken Tony, my post was slightly tinged with tongue in cheek.
Totally agree with your post pal. I am guilty of it too tbh, I find myself saying let’s get Fred and Milinkovic-Savic in to strengthen and I must admit I’ve seen nothing of Fred and very little of SMS, good reports on them but that’s the basis we go on now rather than research.
Agree on needing energy and tempo and dnyamsim.
For me Toby would be a top signing, Lindelof as you say improving and Bailly we’ve seen the ability.
Shaw when he plays has done little wrong. I’ve also a feeling Sanchez will come good next season.
Pogba is the interesting one, jeered by French fans last night I believe, I feel on one hand he is harshly treated then on another I don’t know if he has it in him to step up, we will see.
Let’s hope the back room shake up has a positive effect on the players mindset and that translates to the pitch.
I find myself much like the fan base regarding jose, very split, always wanted this to work.

03 Jun 2018 09:40:36
We all wanted him? Are you kidding? We can’t all agree on anything . I posted water is wet last month and got seven dislikes and started a thread that lasted three days and included an argument about how Jose prefers London water to Manchester water.

03 Jun 2018 09:43:52
Agree totally. Posted the other day asking if anyone knew what type of midfielder Fred is and if he’s any good. Hardly got much back as none of us actually know. As for SMS, Pogba ripped up the Italian league and I think he’s been a good signing for us, just used too deep to be as effective but his actual stats are good. Why is SMS now the magic replacement? Who is he, again what type of player is he etc?

Dallot I have honestly never ever heard of - he certainly isn’t being bought to replace Valencia now but sounds lire like a Utd signing of old which I like in theory.

Proven players we know will be no risk are joe now what’s needed: Alderweireld, Rose and Bale who bar injury, are proven at this level and would improve our team hugely. For all we know, keeping Fellaini could be better Business than spending 100m+ on an unknown quantity.

31 May 2018 16:10:14
I would have thought Lowe would be the new Madrid coach as they wanted him a while back.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2018 10:19:34
I think they're aiming for someone a bit higher.

01 Jun 2018 12:08:07
Wenger or Poch.

01 Jun 2018 22:12:02
Oh please give it to Wenger and let him smash it. Arsenal never knew what they had. No other manager could have done what he did at arsenal.

02 Jun 2018 00:03:34
Had a cheeky £10 on Wenger just makes perfect sense to give it to him on a 12 month rolling contract and wait for Poch.

02 Jun 2018 15:54:18
I think exactly the same Angel I'd love him to go there and win UCL it would be hilarious.

03 Jun 2018 22:32:17
But if wenger wins it with real then that means we don't win it and that's less funny.
