Costa speaking in the press today, "Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

"It's a shame, I've already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. But it is clear that the coach does not count on me and does not want me there. You have to find a team. "

If this is the case Eds would we have any interest? Or am I just particularly poor at maths?


{Ed004's Note - I highly doubt we have shown an interest and I wouldn't want him here}

1.) 08 Jun 2017 08:48:51
He doesn't want to stay in England.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 09:13:58
Was he not one of the players that fell out with Jose the other year.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 09:55:19
Imagine the flak Jose would be getting for allegedly texting a player and saying "I don't need you you are out " doesn't seem a decent way to treat a player who has helped win you a PL in your first season . horrible knb that he is.

Balague is claiming that Pedro to us will be finalised this week.


1.) 18 Aug 2015 13:50:07
That that deal dead then ha.

2.) 18 Aug 2015 16:27:51
Balague is not very reliable when it comes to transfer rumours, although Pedro is definitely on our Radar and should be wrapped up sooner rather than later.

Football365 reporting that Zlatan is recovering much quicker than previously thought and may earn a contract to the end of the year. Can anyone confirm whether we would be interested in this deal and if so how would it affect our shape.

I'm all for it as long as he does not play every game like last year.

If the beginning of November is likely then it could be four quality strikers that all offer slightly different things just like 99.



1.) 12 Jul 2017 14:12:51
Can u see zlatan sitting on the bench.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 14:17:34
Makes good sense to me. If he is back by October then we can at least give him a 3 month contract and see how he goes in time for the Winter window and MLS opening up. Possibly may mean we let Martial go on loan with a call back clause, if we sign a winger like Sanchez/ Perisic.

We'd have to be pretty unlucky to have both Lukaku and Rash get injured before October and adding the insurance to any Martial loan deal would be sensible. Especially if he is going to struggle for games.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 14:20:40
Nah, not for me. I think we need to move on from Zlatan and start building a team for the future.

Zlatan was a good addition last year for his goals and winning mentality but in my opinion bringing him back would be a step backwards and would block the progression of our younger players.

There's no point having younger players in the squad just to have them sat on the bench and never playing.

Also, in 99 we played with two up front.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 14:38:55
Mancman on the money.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 15:32:28
He probably is. I'd love for us to play two up top against most teams again. I know it won't happen but it would be nice wouldn't it?

6.) 12 Jul 2017 16:25:08
Romelu Lukaku said he had asked Zlatan for permission to wear his shirt number. I found that an odd thing to say of zlayan was released. So there may be some truth in this rumour.

{Ed002's Note - ZI is still there getting fit.}

7.) 12 Jul 2017 17:42:11
It makes perfect sense. United can make it work for the first half of the season, and then when the schedule gets all heavy, we can add a striker to the squad for the second half of the season. He should be able to overcome the injury, especially if he's to be a supersub for us. Letting him stay and rehab at Carrington is brilliant, and makes it a lot easier to avoid paying for morata or belotti now that we have lukaku.

8.) 12 Jul 2017 18:57:13
I wouldn't hesitate sign him up. Short term contract and greizman next year.

9.) 12 Jul 2017 19:50:14
Ken I would rather one of the younger players got a chance this season than a 36 year coming back from an Injury who will be off in the summer .

10.) 12 Jul 2017 20:25:40
He's off to LA Galaxy apparently.

11.) 12 Jul 2017 23:18:06
I understand that view jred but the squad is pretty thin on experience. I think overall last year he had what appeared to be a very positive influence in the dressing room and training pitch. Hugely respected by the younger players and his mindset appears to have rubbed off on a few and if all goes well and we are in a good position someone like him wiuld slap down any silly talk or complacency. I just think his experience and stature wiuld be a huge asset. Obvoiusly it would depend on the deal and terms and his game time expectation/ demands but i can see a lot of positives that outweigh some negatives and personally a good gout feeling about it. Hard to explain that but we all have them i'm sure.

12.) 12 Jul 2017 23:32:32
Ahem gut feeling. i'm over the gout thank God 😁.



12 Jul 2017 10:54:37
Eds - a couple on here speaking about the possibility of Sanchez. Is there anything to this?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 12 Jul 2017 11:22:23
Lol short and sweet.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 11:31:14
Haha, that's put to bed that rumour.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 13:43:49
A bit disappointed that we aren't interested. Would hate to see him go to the Etihad. I think he's a strong player in his position and perhaps getting him would mean we don't need to sign another forward. If we sign Perisic, however, I wouldn't be too disappointed but we would still need a Forward in my opinion.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 13:49:58
Cheers Ed - just as I thought.



04 Jul 2017 10:47:41
News today that Morata may be completed by Thursday for 60mil.




07 Jun 2017 15:08:45
I'd put lots of money on it being utter dog poo but Football365 reporting that we are willing to pay Ronaldo's release clause.

100% won't happen - would be nice and all but he's not going anywhere.


1.) 07 Jun 2017 16:00:56
iirc ronald's clause is €1bn.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 16:08:36
Transfers have gone mad but 1 billion is pushing it.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 16:49:15
You do release we can't trigger aronaldos release clause because we are not a Spainish or Portuguese club.

4.) 07 Jun 2017 18:06:22
would we not make a billion back In shirt sales? 😂.



05 Jun 2017 13:17:10
I know some of the EDs aren't a big fan of him but Renato Sanches for 30 mil must be worth a punt.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 14:32:23
If he was, everyonw would be after him. I'm sure Jose knows all about him and would go for him if he deems fit.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 15:20:20
Why would we allow Bayern to recoup the majority of their transfer fee for a young player who hasn't been able to cope with the move from Portugal? We lucked out not signing him last season, and would be daft to go back knowing that he isn't ready to play for a big club away from his home. Best thing for the lad is to go back home for a few seasons to get his career back on track.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 16:41:08
I Would prefer we go in for Douglas Costa. I think the player is quality. We lack wingers that can hug the chalk, stretch and get in behind fullbacks.

{Ed004's Note - I wouldn't be against a loan with an option to buy (after 1 or 2 years - similar to Coman) but can't see Bayern being tempted with that. If we played 433 he would be good cover for Herrera}

4.) 05 Jun 2017 18:56:32
Do you think Jose will be able to work his magic with the kid being a Portuguese n all? Looks like it is the culture change he is struggling with - where are ronaldo Anderson and Nani when you need them! Also doesn't look like Sanchez would shy away from work. Might be a decent purchase if we can get him for £25 mil.

{Ed004's Note - There's no way of knowing if Jose could get the best out of him. Jose doesn't seem to excel with youth}

Took his goal well today and looked dangerous and direct.

I thought jones looked calm and composed today - brought the ball down well under pressure a couple of times - showed good pace and kept distribution was solid and simple.

You seem bitter about a past experience there Beast ;) BTW totally agree re Sanchez.

Because he is our most naturally talented striker and needs an arm round his shoulder and coaching to fulfill his potential to be one of the world's best perhaps?

I tend to agree with Redman - similar to when we had Robbo as club captain and Bruce as team captain. I'd be happy for Carrick and Herrara in those respective roles.

I have a feeling we're getting both. That would mean those two, Pogba, Captain Herrara and Carrick into three. With injuries and games that looks good in there - fellahin I to leave, Carrick to leave next year with tfm or tuanzebe taking his place in the squad.

"you never even wanted to be in Europa League yet now you are lauding it like it was the greatest achievement in the history of football. "

No we didn't but we are delighted to win it. Not hard to grasp.

"United fans have always taken the mickey out of anyone considering that worthwhile in the past. "

You love a sweeping statement don't you? Personally I love my team winning trophies large or small.

By the way Liverpool's treble was legitimate and a fantastic achievement.

Can we all be friends now?
