Few articles going round suggesting that Mourinho tried to "tap up" Justin Kluivert after the game. I don't remember him being mentioned in the Sharkopod could an Ed confirm whether there is interest at all?


{Ed004's Note - I'm not aware of any interest. He is also a very young player so would be better off staying where he is}

1.) 27 May 2017 16:04:00
He spoke to him on the pitch after the game. Nothing in it although there is a clip of it with made up captions which is funny. In that clip he is tapping him up for sure haha.



20 Nov 2016 16:50:01
I was wondering if any of the Eds could confirm if we have shown any interest in Kasper Dolberg of Ajax?

Looks like a player with a lot of potential.


{Ed002's Note - You will have to wait for the update from me.}

1.) 20 Nov 2016 17:56:45
Definitely a talent.

2.) 20 Nov 2016 17:59:23
Thanks Ed002, shall I keep an eye on the euro pages or this one?

{Ed002's Note - It is probably already on the European pages - if not try the Chelsea page or the Manchester City page.}



15 Nov 2016 14:51:59
BBC and a few others reporting Schweinsteiger has met with Chicago Fire in MLS.

I think it would be a shame to let him go in January, he still has something to give.


1.) 15 Nov 2016 16:34:33
Top tennis knowledge?

2.) 15 Nov 2016 16:40:07
I'm going to the ATP Tour on Friday. Perhaps Schweini can tell me what's going on.

3.) 16 Nov 2016 12:08:31
Also confirmed by other outlets. he has met Chicago’s head coach, Veljko Paunovic.



03 Aug 2016 21:40:11
Just wondering if any of the Eds have any information regarding what United players (if any) have been made available for transfer?

I'm particularly interested in any Mata updates as I feel he has been great so far this preseason, would be a shame to let him go.


{Ed001's Note - there is not much in the way of players to sell, your squad was thinned out, but there are a few, such as Wilson and Januzaj that are available. It will be January that I expect a few of those that can't get in the team to move on.}

1.) 04 Aug 2016 09:07:02
Schweinsteiger, Rojo, Januzaj, Wilson are not in our plans.
I wish chinese clubs take them for 25M each.
Depay and Jones may also join that list if they put poor performances and show no sign of improvements.

2.) 04 Aug 2016 14:27:53
I think Ed001 is spot on. There are players that Jose won't fancy and not good enough but because LvG worked with, a small squad we would need to bring even more players in. 4/ 5 is okay. much more than that and you are spending first 5/ 10 games gelling.
I can see some loans and I hope some sales with the promotionso from u21s.

3.) 05 Aug 2016 08:56:11
Its just the blockers like Rojo who need to go. But I think we could end up stuck with some of them.

4.) 05 Aug 2016 09:23:35
Thank you for the insight Ed and everyone else!



07 Jul 2016 08:22:11
Reports Blaise Matuidi is currently in talks with Manchester United and has been allowed a short break from international duty. Mino Raiola is the players agent who is keen to engineer the move.


1.) 07 Jul 2016 09:32:19
Doubt it with frances semi final tonight.

2.) 07 Jul 2016 09:39:49
It will have to be a short break, he's playing tonight. lol.

3.) 07 Jul 2016 09:47:05
Yep good idea that. Let matuidi have some time off just before a European champion ship semi final. Sounds realistic 😂😂.

4.) 07 Jul 2016 14:15:48
Apologies this was originally reported 2 days ago, just forgot to post.

5.) 07 Jul 2016 18:37:23
All these Pogba rumours, Hope they ain't true, Is anyone player worth a reported 100million pound deal? . Since leaving mufc I've not really followed his career, but watching him in the euro, s he has not set the tournament alight. Would we not be better getting a few more players in and spreading out this rumoured 100 million, It's one hell of a lump sum to spend, Just wish we would spread it out amongst other areas what need cover . Another defender or two, Speedy left winger, and a midfielder who can spray the ball about the pitch with ease. Possibly another high class striker. I know it's all rumours and paper talk, but boy oh boy if we do spend 100 million on Pogba, he better win us the league, the champions league, the fa cup, and even the Ryder Cup.

6.) 07 Jul 2016 21:41:22
Foolish comment. What has the club's money got to do with anyone? Also, if Jose thinks it's worthwhile then who are we to disagree. Years of coaching badges and qualifications and experience far outweigh our experience on Champo and the Internet.

7.) 07 Jul 2016 21:59:28
Matuidi is a beast he managed to fly to England and have a medical, fly back, win the game and will doubt save the world before bed :)

8.) 07 Jul 2016 23:49:30
Eric - Some people were saying the same thing when we signed ADM, LVG knows what he is doing etc.

£100m seems too much for this guy when you benchmark it against what else is out there for less. The club spending a very large chunk of a transfer budget on this players does effect us, because it means that other players may not be signed, or other players need to be sold. Look how that impacted us last season.

Not our money but it is our club, I think there are far more intelligent things to do with £100m than spend it on Pogba. But then again it's not Jose's or Woody's money either so they can afford to take these kind of punts!

Where's LVG now after all the money he spunked? Probably sunning himself in Portugal with £10m+ extra in the bank, exactly where Jose and Woody will be if they get these big calls wrong. They even win if they lose, meanwhile we still support the club!

9.) 08 Jul 2016 05:10:31
I know what you're saying but Jose will know his budget. If he feels it's best spent on Pogba rather than two other players then we have to go with it. I don't agree with buying a player who don't want to join like ADM, but if Real don't have the money to buy Pogba then they're not in the race to sign him.

10.) 08 Jul 2016 06:10:33
I agree Eric, if the manager wants him and the board backs him then fair enough - he undoubtedly knows a lot more than most of us. However personally I think it is a gamble we don't need to take, especially as if we are not the players first choice. In a couple of years maybe Madrid will have the funds, then it's back to holding the club to ransom time!

I've not been overly impressed by Pogba all too often, for that type of money i would expect to see more.

11.) 08 Jul 2016 07:29:46
Eric. we're do you think clubs get most of their income from? . it's us the fans . without fans monies, a lot of clubs would go out of business. also I was just expressing my views on spending a massive lump sum on one player. chill out man . it's a rumour site.

12.) 08 Jul 2016 07:55:46
Haha I love this Beast. "I agree Eric, if the manager wants him and the board backs him then fair enough - he undoubtedly knows a lot more than MOST of us. "

"However, personally I think it's a gamble we don't need to take. "

In other words, I know better than Mourinho.
priceless Beast, just priceless.

13.) 08 Jul 2016 10:19:06
I'd say most of the money comes from sponsorship and TV deals to be honest these days for Utd. £100m is crazy money in anybody's language and frankly, it's pretty disgusting but that's the way our "beautiful" game is going so I'd rather us be on board and get someone like him rather than let others be ahead of us. I still think we missed a trick with Renato Sanches.

14.) 08 Jul 2016 12:43:55
money is nothing to do with the fans in my opinion if we can afford the best buy the best simple. We as a huge club have to pay huge sums for the best players we have a team full of world class stars pogba could turn out the best midfielder of his generation how much would scholes or keane cost now days a lot is the answer so we got the money spend on the best.

15.) 08 Jul 2016 12:57:42
Is 100mil disgusting when Sterling cost 50mil and Benteke is priced at 30mil?

id take a Pogba for 100mil over 2 Sterlings or 3 Benteke's.

Id take Pogba over 1 Benteke, 1 Stering and 20mil change even!

just my opinion though.

16.) 08 Jul 2016 13:11:12
It is funny how all United fans now are happy about spending over 100 million on one player. When city spent half of that, you would call them out as disgusting and ruining the PL. Really fickle lot.

17.) 08 Jul 2016 13:32:03

I know that was an attempt at a wind up and 'banter' but you have posted this underneath loads of posts saying why we aren't too happy to pay £100 million. Also, it is an entirely different situation, City were just spending unlimited funds that were not their own, just a rich owner who could spend whatever, that is what people were annoyed about, not what the costs were.

18.) 09 Jul 2016 05:43:34
IMO the 'worry' about Pogba going to Madrid is pointless.
If we sign him to a 4 or 5 year deal Madrid would have to pay big money to sign him away. (They can't by the way) .
In the next 2-3 years it is possible Utd return to being successful with Pogba at the heart of the team!
Paul may decide to stay at the club he joined as a boy, and became a United Legend with.
You just never know.
What people want can change over time.

Hi, Seeing as Donnarumma has rejected a new contract with AC, I was wondering if this could mean he could be a target as a replacement for De Gea, or could he be the one heading to Madrid? Any update would be great. Thanks.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 01:25:43
Ed002 recently said real still hold an interest in DDG and in case he goes Donnaruma is one of the options we are looking at. I don't know about Real being interested in Donnaruma my guess is why wouldn't they be but today's news seems like a win win for us.



27 Apr 2017 09:28:43
Allegedly Oblaks representative has flew into Manchester. Papers have automatically linked this to United and De Geas departure. Could an Ed confirm whether this meeting is taking place or whether its more likely a meeting with Manchester City. I thought they would mainly be searching for a keeper.


{Ed002's Note - No idea, sorry.}



03 Mar 2017 12:28:01
Just a quick couple of questions for an Ed if possible.

What is the likelihood of Lukaku moving in the summer and would United be considering him? I know rumours are he may be signing a new contract but could that be just a way of driving up his value before the summer? And is it common for agents/ players to do that?

Thanks in Advance.


{Ed025's Note - its looking like romelu will be signing a new contract at everton very shortly kurtis but as you say that means nothing, his agent mino raiola has already stated that even though his new contract will be signed that it will not guarantee that he will be at everton next season, contracts are not worth the paper they are written on to be honest mate and if a player wants to orchestrate a move then there is very little the clubs can do about it..

1.) 03 Mar 2017 12:46:33
Jose completely dismissed him at Chelsea, can't really see it happening to be honest.

{Ed025's Note - in my opinion chelsea would be the only club in england he would go to stretfordender, its more likely that he will go abroad mate..

2.) 03 Mar 2017 17:00:17
Bring in griezmann this summer to play behind ibra and replace Rooney in the squad provided ibra stays this summer.

Then sign lukaku potentially to replace ibra if he leaves next summer. Although rashford or martial could be ready to fill that slot in the coming seasons.

Sounds logical to me lol.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see romelu going to united myself DSG..

3.) 03 Mar 2017 18:19:59
Thanks for the reply and insight Ed025! I think you're right, I couldn't see him going anywhere but Chelsea/ Abroad.

{Ed025's Note - no problem kurtis..



17 Jun 2016 12:56:38
Nico Gaitain to move to Athletico Madrid. That should but an end to the stories linking him with United. Looks like we'll just be signing Sneijder this year then.




02 Sep 2015 18:30:31
Some would say dissapointing, some would say excellent. I think one thing everyone will agree on is that this has been a very stressful transer window.

Just thought I would take time to thank all the Eds for all their hardwork this window, they have been so informative and its nice to be able to get genuine information from a trusted source. Also just want to say Welcome back to Ed002, hopefully we see you stick around and our posters have learnt from the previous mistakes that forced you to leave.

Keep up the good work!

Played it in his strongest position on the wing I would say its not a bad signing. One bad season yet but based on our attacking options on the wing currently I'd take it! Another tabloid trying to sell a story no doubt.

Personally think it will be Chelsea, he has always loved the club. I don't think we will see United doing any business for a while yet.

I expect that it would be quite hard to take Oblak and Griezman from Athletico if the rumours are true. I think it could be plausible, he wouldn't need time adapting to PL and was one of Leicesters pivotal players last year.

Lindelof will be signed this window, there is a sell on clause from his old club that has been causing delays.

I do not think we will be signing Fonte.

{Ed002's Note - Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a decent player but comes with a lot of baggage. He moans a lot, was unhappy at Dortmund due to him seeing Klopp's panic-based kopflose huhn style of training and play creatively stifling (as did many other players at Dortmund) . Chelsea switched their attention to Mkhitaryan briefly after losing out on Griezmann - but it went nowhere for a couple of reasons and they were quick to step away. Players who moan don't get far with Mr Mourinho. }.

Most CBs on the market thing DDG is leaving, meaning that they will actually have to do some work if they sign for us.

LVG has already made it clear Blind will be starting as the left centre back, so i don't see him starting in a midfield three.

Based on preseason comments from LVG and performance of Schweinsteiger I believe he is likely to be on the bench with Carrick, Herrera and Schneiderlin starting. But football is a strange game anything can happen.
