Reported in Spain that Madrid are back in for De Gea, and he wants to leave. Price being mooted is £50m. Take it with a pinch of salt.

But if it is true, then this should be fun. If they wanted £70m for their backup striker, then how much is one of the top keepers in the world worth?

1.) 14 Jul 2017 11:24:47
£100m thanks Real.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Pickford 30 mil for an upcoming keeper. De gea the best in the world needs to be 100 mil +.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 11:46:08
Minimum 100 million.

4.) 14 Jul 2017 12:00:42
All depends for all we know there might have been a gentleman's agreement for him to leave made last summer and a figure agreed. That figure then would look cheap by today's prices. Time will tell.

5.) 14 Jul 2017 12:02:45
£60mill+Kroos please thank you.

6.) 14 Jul 2017 12:03:17
Toni Kroos and £60m.

7.) 14 Jul 2017 12:26:33
with no prior agreement in place between us and RM i would say £95mil and make him the most expensive player in the world - for the short term anyway.

8.) 14 Jul 2017 12:30:08
If he wants out it will be hard to stop. But it must be on our terms. Perhaps we could get the opportunity to talk to bale or kroos if jose wants them.
A question i asked on another thread would we need to sign a keeper or would be go work romero and Perriera?

9.) 14 Jul 2017 12:35:17
Easily worth £100m today. Kroos and 60 would be a good return but this isn't footy manager. I'd love us to just stick 2 fingers up to Madrid and tell Mendes he needs to be loyal to us given the recent business we've done with him.

10.) 14 Jul 2017 13:54:08
Haven't we already rejected a 60 million bid.

11.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:41
Don't think so bolger.

12.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:43
Let's be realistic with the valuation, whilst the money at the minute for outfield players is crazy we are not going to get more than £60/ 70m for DDG. Keepers are important but not valued as highly as strikers.
At the end of last year I thought Mourinho for all his talk would have been happy with DDG going at a good price and starting season with Romero and the pereira who he thinks will be world class in a few years.
If DDG goes Hopefully we start conversations about Bale coming the other way.

13.) 14 Jul 2017 14:42:21
Unfortunately I think it's inevitable that De Gea will end up at Madrid. I've said before that it has the feel of the Fabregas to Barcelona to it and will eventually happen. I just hope we get the maximum amount for him. Jose seems to be getting decent fees for all the outgoings so far. I'd say between £80-90 million and he's yours. Then go after Jack Butland.

14.) 14 Jul 2017 14:46:48
Brad, historically goal scorers command the big fees. But with Liverpool rumoured to be happy to pay £70m million for Keita who's had one season in the bundesliga, why not stick for £100m for the worlds best goal keeper?

15.) 14 Jul 2017 15:09:35
Even if the player wants to go, we don't have to do the deal. It is feasible to hold the player to his contract. DDG seems like a good professional and he's already at one of the biggest clubs in the world with Champions League football.

However, I really rate Romero. I was at OT when he made his debut and I thought then he looked like an accomplished keeper. I have no doubt he would be an excellent number one for us.

If DDG is sold that leaves an interesting conundrum with Perriera. If I was Jose I would be asking myself, if Romero got injured is Perriera ready to step up straight away?

I think as that we need to reset the balance of our relationship with Real Madrid. They need to understand that they cannot just help themselves to any of our players and that if they are not prepared to be reasonable with players we want to buy from them, we are prepared to walk away and find an alternative.

Just a post in praise of Lukaku. During the summer there was a lot of scepticism toward him, and debate about the likes of Moratta and Lacazette being better options. Coming toward the end of the year, he has been fantastic for us. Starved of supply and support at times, he's still on course for his best ever goal tally, plus chipping in with some assists. A player who has really worked on his overall game this year.

The only striker in the league I'd take over him is Kane. Close to player of the season for us.

1.) 29 Mar 2018 15:14:49
I was one of the ones who didn’t think he would fit and didn’t really rate him. I have to say that I’ve been really impressed with him, his link up play has been excellent and he’s always putting in a shift for us and never stops trying and even tracking back to help out. His link up reminded me a lot of Andy Cole/ Dwight Yorke, would like to see him partnered with someone maybe rashford upfront and create a partnership.

2.) 29 Mar 2018 16:25:07
Been really good for us was the type of striker we had been missing .

3.) 29 Mar 2018 16:47:52
Really good return from him imagine how many he would score if he had some creativity around him giving him more than one chance a game.

4.) 29 Mar 2018 17:12:05
What I like about him, is that even when he’s not scoring you can see defenders are terrified off his presence. You can’t get too tight because he can turn you, and if you stand off he’s got blistering pace for such a big man. He stretches teams, something Zlatan couldn’t. He’s been a great signing and at 24 will only get better.

5.) 29 Mar 2018 18:06:08
Never a Man Utd striker in a month of Sundays.

6.) 29 Mar 2018 18:09:33
Good signing that could become great and his first touch is definitely improving 😆😆.

7.) 29 Mar 2018 22:12:51
Suppose we don’t want goalscorers juicer.

8.) 30 Mar 2018 02:29:41
Surely you would at least consider Aguero?!

He's been very good, and you seem to be able to see improvements in his weaker areas through the season. Been a great signing and 10 times the player Morata has shown us this season.

9.) 30 Mar 2018 11:05:10
For anyone doubting Lukaku look at his goals tally for his first season with us then go compare it with Cole, Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov. Some class strikers in there and Lukaku has outstripped all of them.

10.) 30 Mar 2018 10:50:11
I remember a year or 2 ago my lad said he'd be brilliant for us I went on a massive rant of how he was crap and I'd throw myself from something high if we signed him.

Fast forward a bit and he is my favourite current player the desire he shows every match is inspiring and a few of the current crop should take a look at him and hang their head in shame.

He has been brilliant for us and will only get better.



17 Mar 2018 20:57:33
Pretty sure that the only reason José actually plays Shaw is to publicly humiliate him.

1.) 17 Mar 2018 21:02:44
Really hope that he leaves and finds can get his career going again, obvious that The Bully wants to torture him.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 21:34:59
The bully wants to torture him, you make me laugh!

3.) 17 Mar 2018 21:51:15
I thought he was decent in the first half. He's going to make mistakes if he doesn't get a decent run, and knowing José is just looking a chance to embarrass him if he messes up. That said, Young's been playing well of late. I'd still be playing Shaw until the end of the season, taking into account the respective stages of their careers. Give him a proper chance to do whatever it is that José wants from him.

4.) 17 Mar 2018 21:56:53
Yeah it's all jose fault that Shaw is a waste of space.

5.) 17 Mar 2018 21:59:48
A 100k a week footballer who can't keep himself in shape🍩🍫🍪, its a mystery he struggles to get into the team🤷‍♂️.

6.) 17 Mar 2018 22:17:13
Bully? Jog on.

7.) 17 Mar 2018 22:24:13
Bully. The word had lost all meaning.

8.) 17 Mar 2018 22:32:21
He has been terrible. He will be gone by summer.

{Ed007's Note - Redlyon? He didn't even last that long!}

9.) 17 Mar 2018 23:08:08
Shaw doesn’t have the Sustained discipline to be an elite athlete. He’ll be gone in the summer and good riddance. Him, Martial etc are not committed enough or mentally strong enough to be Man Utd players. This obsession with young players is great as long as they’re actually going to be stars. Very few in our squad have it to make it to the top and it’s much harder than the class of 92 made it look.

10.) 17 Mar 2018 23:30:26
Nobody is saying that Shaw is a great player, or that he’s going to make the grade at a top club. But if José doesn’t rate him, then don’t play him. He didn’t play poorly in the first half and wasn’t a liability, so I don’t see why you’d sub him at halftime other than to make a show of him.

We have Young, Darmian and Blind who can play lb, so why play Shaw at all?

11.) 17 Mar 2018 23:30:41
Great point I tho k that is exactly what Jose said about KDB.

12.) 17 Mar 2018 23:39:33
Eric, how can you possibly know they're going to be stars at a young age? Lots of young lads develop at a different rate.

13.) 17 Mar 2018 23:42:41
Mourinho hasn't ruin3d anyones career. If shaw cannot be asked to perform the way he has been asmed off then he should rightly be subbed.

Atleast Mourinho gave him a chance to perform but again for some reason or another he didn't do what was asked of him.

These players are a bit too pampered for my liking they need to know they play infron of 70k plus people who come to watch their players give their all and at this time they are not.

14.) 18 Mar 2018 00:17:25
Bully. The word has LOST all meaning. Waaa waaa. Bullies everywhere.

15.) 18 Mar 2018 01:22:36
It’s a mental thing jred. Shaw is a talented footballer, but he is neither an athlete nor a professional and won’t make it at our club or the top level. As to why Jose plays him
He needs to keep him in the shoo window I’m guessing and rotate Young too who is x10 the pro he is.

However, a very comfortable and successful living awaits him at a mid table club. Same with Martial who sulks far too often and doesn’t get his head down and work enough to be a top player.

I can’t abide laziness and wasted talent in any walk of life and these two have it in abundance. Not willing to put in the work to make it. When you’re paid 80-100k a week so young though why would you bother. If they had half the attitude of Lingard they’d be ripping up this league for us. Too many cruising in our squad and they need shipping out to a less demanding coach and club.

16.) 17 Mar 2018 22:33:48
What else do you call it? He publicly shames Shaw all the time, only other person he slagged off was McTom - despite there being 6-8 that he was angry with apparently and Matic playing as 'an island'!

Both Shaw and McTom didn't play on Tuesday, so how can they not have responded as he claims?

He is picking on easy targets always does it, never hear him attacking the big lads or players that do equally as poor as the easy targets that may bite back. If that isn't a bully not sure what is.

Bully = 'A person who habitually seeks to harm or intimidate those whom they perceive as vulnerable. '

17.) 18 Mar 2018 05:29:42
Great post reic.

18.) 18 Mar 2018 09:41:12
Are any of you seriously going to say that shaw isn't overweight? Its obvious. PUT DOWN THE FORK LUKE! that's all he's got to do. Live your life right for 20 years then turn into razor ruddock. Ita a joke. he's another Anderson. Arse is too fat to be a pro footballer. Get rid of him if the attitude don't change by end of the season.



16 Mar 2018 16:47:51
Jeez, that press conference. José's ego on a full rampage for 12 minutes.

Look everyone knows that José inherented a relatively poor United side. But, he has been given hundreds of millions to set this right. The reality is that he hasn't been able to get the most out of the players at his disposal. Yes Pep started with a better squad, but what José doesn't seem to grasp is that in less than two years Pep has improved his players.

We have a team of very good players who are incapable of playing like a very good team, that's on José, and all his ranting doesn't change the fact.

1.) 16 Mar 2018 18:52:55
I actually wonder what they do in training all week.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 19:27:36
Going by the lazy arse way the players approach the game and the lack of movement they must be smoking tabs and eating the clubs 'cows forehead and potato' pies during the 'training' sessions.



13 Mar 2018 21:21:08
This is all José's fault. Started safety first, and let them take control of the game. Poor management in the biggest game of our season.

1.) 13 Mar 2018 21:36:53
Plays for 0.0 when we should have been going to Sevilla and looking for goals like Liverpool got at Porto. All these top notch players and all restricted from playing their own way. Even Sanchez cannot shine under Jose. Doubt Messi would either. It's not the players, it's the style of play. Imagine SAF with these players.

2.) 13 Mar 2018 21:37:35
Credit where it is due. Fair play to Sevilla, they actually tried to win the tie. They didn't play for the 0-0 or resort to pre-war football as we have done so often this season.

They were a Ben Yedder away from sealing the tie in the first leg. Fortunately, they played Muriel, who is terrible.

Let's look on the bright side, no more European fans will have to waste their money coming to Old Trafford this season.



13 Mar 2018 20:08:59
Fellaini is not plan A for a team hoping to win the CL.

1.) 13 Mar 2018 20:32:07
Just throw the ball into the tower.
The first 135 minutes are to avoid conceding. And then Mou complaint about the atmosphere.

2.) 13 Mar 2018 20:33:12
Your right, Mata would be a better bet in this game.

3.) 13 Mar 2018 20:43:50
McTommy or a half fit Pogba would be a better shout. Fellaini has his uses, but not starting alongside Matic in a two man midfield. If we moved the ball any slower, we’d be playing some football/ curling hybrid.

As far as I'm aware, they don't have an option on the player, PSG have made a commitment to purchase Mbappe next summer.

{Ed001's Note - that was what held up the deal happening is that Monaco wanted a guarantee they would sign him for the agreed price at the end of the loan or they would not agree to loan him.}

Can’t see him staying. He’s reaching the last peak years of his career, and wants to be a starter. Same with Fellaini. We have a big investment to make in midfield over the next few years.

To be fair, Liverpool just did what people have been saying for months, target City’s weak defence and they’ll make mistakes. Shows how a mix of pressing high at the right times, and attacking their defence with pace can pay big dividends.

Wait and see the difference next weekend, we’ll sit back to soak up the pressure, and City will look a world class team again.
