Wesley Sneijder's been released by Galatasaray. Let the rumours commence.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 20:44:02
Exactly the type of player we need.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 22:03:48
6 years ago.



05 Jul 2017 10:43:25
Apparently Inter have rejected our recent bid of £40mil for Perisic.


1.) 05 Jul 2017 11:36:59
Time to walk away, good player but this deal is dragging on now and the cost is starting to go beyond what the player is worth.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:01:39
Unfortunately we are going to pay over the odds for any player because as ed002 has said teams see us as daft enough to pay these prices.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:08:44
We have set a precedents since SAF left for being stupid. Happening with Morata too - £80m is a joke and they've turned down £70m.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 12:23:00
Really fresh do you believe that?

5.) 05 Jul 2017 12:34:38
How do you mean Ken?

6.) 05 Jul 2017 13:20:57
What does it matter fresh? Don't worry about the money side. None of us have a clue about it. If that's the valuation, so be it.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 14:54:10
All prices quoted in the media are probably over inflated as it helps to sell papers or get hits. I doubt we are currently that high with our offer.

8.) 05 Jul 2017 14:57:02
It matters if it means we don't have enough for other players we need. I don't know if this is the case or not. If it doesn't affect other signings I couldn't care less what we pay. i'm assuming the owners know how much we can afford to spend.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 16:52:25
Not privvy to any info regarding madrid- man utd negotiations, but surely if they are playing hard ball they must realise they can get stung with big numbers if they go for DDG?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no relevance to what is being discussed with any other players.}

10.) 05 Jul 2017 17:29:42
This is crazy money for Morata.

11.) 05 Jul 2017 17:58:07
Your last line sums it up perfectly RWWD.

12.) 05 Jul 2017 17:59:10
I take it ed002 that real madrid have a valuation for the player and United have to match that or look for another target.

{Ed002's Note - OK if that is what you think.}



15 May 2017 18:45:58
Ed's I've heard today that we have agreed a deal for Brozovic at Inter. Back when all reports were saying Jose had gone to Croatia to tie up a deal for Perisic. Could it be that it was actually Brozovic?
Any truth in it?


1.) 15 May 2017 22:41:28
It's mentioned that he is a possible target.

2.) 16 May 2017 08:58:02
Is there an updated sharkopod? The one i last saw was one before the January transfer window talking about bastian n jose fonte!

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}



28 Apr 2017 12:17:40
De Gea is a gonna. Apparently for €70/ £59 mil.
All the reports are saying that James or Morata could be a part of the deal. These kind of deals don't happen though. It might help if we did want one of their players but I think if Jose went back to Real for any player it would be Varane he'd be after. If we could get that sort of money for De Gea I'd sell. He's the best at what he does but it's inevitable that he'll be back in Madrid before long.


1.) 28 Apr 2017 12:57:12
That's just newspaper talk so far. I wouldn't read too much in to it yet.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 14:08:45
It is only newspaper chatter now but I think this time it has a bit more feel to it of being possible- I wouldn't be at all surprised. don't know much about his house being put up for sale or let out is significant but since day one its been clear that he has a serious girlfriend and all his family in Spain, they were in Uk they went back last year . Yes he can afford private planes, fly his famiy over for a weekend or a day but let's be honest that's tough even for a job you love -5 years of it I think is probably enough for him now

Hope i'm wrong but I see him going in the summer, only positive is there do seem to be keepers available and if we get a top centre half and a DM maybe a very good keeper will be enough.

3.) 28 Apr 2017 14:30:00
won't even call it newspaper talk, whole ddg saga is madrid mouthpiece doing what madrid mouthpieces do best, chat Fellaini....

4.) 28 Apr 2017 15:13:10
haha, after last match that seems an apt synonym ed.

5.) 28 Apr 2017 18:27:22
CSM chat Fellaini lol.



26 Apr 2017 13:06:44
Is the reported interest in Belotti genuine eds?


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 26 Apr 2017 14:18:24
we cannot surely be interested in signing belotti, griezmann and silva. singing 2 of those i get, all 3 makes sense only if martial is leaving, which would be sad.

2.) 26 Apr 2017 14:18:24
we cannot surely be interested in signing belotti, griezmann and silva. singing 2 of those i get, all 3 makes sense only if martial is leaving, which would be sad.

{Ed001's Note - being interested in them all, does not mean an intention to sign all of them. The club has a list of targets for each position, they are all of interest, but there will only be one of them signed, if any.}

3.) 26 Apr 2017 14:27:26
ok that makes a lot more sense ed001, so i suppose griezmann is the no1 target with silva as backup, with belotti being considered as ibra replacement?

{Ed001's Note - from what I can gather, yes that seems to be the plan, if it all goes right.}

4.) 26 Apr 2017 15:02:42
hopefully it does, thanks ed001.

5.) 26 Apr 2017 15:06:56
Is this Andre Silva that is being mentioned?

6.) 26 Apr 2017 15:43:19
Bernardo Silva from Monaco Scholes 18.

7.) 26 Apr 2017 15:54:33
Out of the above three i'd go for Griezmann, playing just off Rashford who i'd make our first choice number 9. Wouldn't mind a 442 either with tony and Rashford up front and Griezmann in behind. Can still have Pogba play on the left side of a midfield three to an extent!

8.) 26 Apr 2017 16:22:34
So if Beloti is considered Zlatan replacement would that mean that we are also after one other as well (Griezman / Silva) . Only ask as Griezman was discussed even before Zlatan injury.
Any thoughts how we would accommodate Griezman, Miki, Rashford, Herera and Pogba etc. Or could we see a big player depart.

9.) 26 Apr 2017 17:39:57
Brad, we will once again play around 60 games next season, so don't worry about fitting every player into the same team week in, week out.

Our squad is on the large side now yet we don't seem to have a fully fit 5-a-side team.

10.) 26 Apr 2017 18:13:28
Wazza, fully appreciate that. I was more thinking that all of these would expect to be first team not rotation how would we fit in to a system.
ED02 Has suggested above that Herera has pissed off Jose and possibly available so that would resolve one issue. Shame as he has been quality but in Jose I will trust.

11.) 26 Apr 2017 20:16:11
I have absolutely no idea what Herrera has supposedly done however he's one of 2 players I'd rather have at the club than Jose. The other is DDG, but now it looks like they'll both be off!

I didn't get to see the game last night, took the missus to the cinema.
How did they play? Which player was getting all the stick on the live chat? From what I've seen in pre season, we look to have a really settled squad and some of the football has been really nice good to watch. The Mkhitaryan goal last night looked like a well executed counter attack, something Jose's teams have been good at in the past. I'm feeling extremely positive with our squad and the season ahead.


1.) 03 Aug 2017 13:06:56
Was despicable me 3 good?

2.) 03 Aug 2017 13:31:58
Haha Already seen that! Went to see Dunkirk. Great film. Worth missing the football for.



31 Jul 2017 16:05:00
Matic confirmed.




31 Jul 2017 08:42:10
Changing the subject from all this Matic and Fellaini talk. The most positive thing I can see about our midfield this season is that we have 3 players in Carrick, Pogba and Herrera who can all captain the team. Something we have been missing since Roy Keane left the club.
I think it's vitally important that the captain plays in a position where he can grab a game and change things. For that reason I would like to see it given to Pogba. He is fast becoming the natural leader in games. I know it is only preseason but he has looked immense so far. Herrera is a great deputy for him too, a very clever footballer who dictates the positions of players, as we saw with Mkhitaryan in the Europa league. All in all I think our team is starting to see some leaders emerge, again something we have been lacking for a long time.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 08:49:02
Matic and Fellaini also great captain material. Ha.



27 Jul 2017 11:33:45
One for Ronnie this.
Rumour is United will have a scout at the game between Anderlect ad Antwerp tomorrow to have a look at Dendoncker.
Do any of the Ed's know if this is correct?


{Ed002's Note - DEndoncker was of interest when JM was at Chelsea.}

1.) 27 Jul 2017 11:56:13
Cheers Ed002.



18 Jul 2017 21:41:06
Rumours tonight that Spurs are in for Kovacic at Real who's often used as a deep lying playmaker. Could this free up Dier?
They've bid €25 million which would be peanuts for a very good midfielder.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 10:31:39
I'd rather United go Kovacic for 25 Million Euros then for Dier at the price they are quoting.

Couldn't think of a less Poch player. He won't press and rubbish down like the Spurs players do.

I think if it wasn't for the injuries to Young, Shaw and Rojo then we probably would've sold a couple of our defenders by now. Blind, Jones and Smalling would be the obvious candidates. Although I do like Blind as a decent squad player, he didn't do himself any favours against Barcelona in preseason.

Care to name any names? If this turns out to be true then we've got a lot of 'clearing out' to do yet. Something that would be really disruptive to our squad.

Why would it? he's not fit until November/ December. Why can't we have 3 or 4 strikers in our squad? The potential signing of Perisic is more of a threat to Martial, but again why can't we have 2 or 3 top players competing for the attacking positions.

If we get into the knock out stages of the CL and Zlatan becoming available at Xmas might not be such a bad thing. Rashford and Martial will get plenty of game time this season. Having a player like Ibrahimovich to call upon isn't a bad option if you're going for 2 or 3 trophies. He won't be a long term signing but could make a difference if our squad is a bit stretched later in the season.
It doesn't stop us going back in for Griezmann in the summer. We will never get a player of Bale or Griezmanns calibre in January anyway.

Beckham, Heinze, Van Nistelrooy, Chicharito, Ronaldo Di Maria and Owen.

The over reaction to last night is embarrassing. Driving in to work this morning and I heard fans writing off our season before it's even started.
Admittedly we weren't at our best last night but we weren't that bad. Real played the ball about well and we struggled but the fact that we were needing drinks breaks tells you the conditions weren't great.
Lindelof needs time to settle. Matic looks like he's been here for years and Lukaku will get goals. Yeah he should've buried the rebound from Pogba's effort but he got his goal and will do so in the PL.
The games that we drew last season will be turned into wins this season and we'll be right up there challenging.
