if this really is the end of the Griezmann saga, so you think Man Utd will completely move on or do you think the move could be revisited in a years time. Maybe this will mean Martial is given another year to sort his head out. (Won't hold my breath though, the lad seems to lacking in the mental strength department).

IF talks were ongoing with United and Griezmann i don't see how they couldn't have anticipated this scenario whereby Atleticos ban isn't lifted, something just doesn't seem right.

I would say that United probably didn't want to pay the full release clause or didn't want to pay it immediately.

Read ED002 post about release clauses etc.

Hi all, thanks to the Eds as always for the site. This is purely my guess.

United have decided to hold out one more year for AG because of two reasons, one because of the injury to Ibra and so a CF is now of higher priority and two there is a situation with AG that isn't desirable to the club, perhaps player attitude/ arrogance?

Lukaku looks to be the first choice now, he has prem experience over a number of years and although it hasn't quite proven himself yet in the bigger games, Jose believes he has it in him.
The 'surprise' Jose is referring to is either Neymar or Bale but this will depend on whether Martial is sold and/ or Rashford heads out on loan (not what I want but I can see it happening) .
For what it's worth I also think De Gea will stay but that is just a gut feeling.

Reading through Ballague's Spain round up.

He says that Rodriguez would prefer a move to us or Chelski and that there have been offers from England just wondering if any of the eds know if one of those offers came from United?

He did also say that Liverpool were interested but they were not his preference, which was nice to read


Was he chatting the proverbial again?


Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any offers since last summer that involve a straight cash deal.

Real Madrid did not want to sell James Rodrigues in January but they will listen to any very high bids made for the summer. Four clubs come in to the picture - Manchester United because they are seen as stupid enough to pay what most sides would see as way over the odds for the player who some would describe as a childish flake; Chelsea as the player has suggested himself that he would like to play for them and live in London - but they won't be held to ransom and have major concerns about his ability to settle in the very culturally different England - but this may not deter an offer; Juventus - but he is one of several potential targets and their interest is elsewhere; and Bayern Munich now that Carlo Ancelotti is heading there - again they won't be held to ransom. However, whilst the intention is that he will be sacrificed in the summer to raise funds, there are some significant things going on in the background that could have an impact on whether or not he will be leaving during 2016 - so we need to wait and see but I expect circumstances to be such that they may listen to offers. But they could block any move until the end of the window awaiting the outcome of a number of issues. His agent has spoken to three sides about James including Manchester City, Juventus and Chelsea to try and move things along. Manchester City are unlikely to be interested. Real Madrid has also spoken with PSG through a third party whilst discussions were being held over another player. They could bite later in the transfer window if he is still available. Chelsea have also spoken with Real Madid but are frustrated that they are running hot and cold over whether or not they will let him leave this summer and concerns remain over price and a move to London.}

COULD United match PSG for Neymar or would the money we've spent recently prevent us from making such a move because of FFP?

Seems pretty much nailed on that he will go to France but just intrigued to know.


Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - No, MU cannot sign Neymar.}

we could afford Neymar but the glaziers would not likely sanction the deal would we be able to lure him here I doubt that as well but we could most defiantly afford the fees.


3.) 02 Aug 2017 18:06:56
Ed2 with a deal of this value what is harder for the club's in regards to ffp to get past is it the actual fee or the ongoing wages.

{Ed002's Note - It is both - there are many facets to FFP.}

You guys need to move on and we are still football club that needs to check and balance its books the last time I checked.

5.) 02 Aug 2017 22:21:44
Can PSG afford Neymar?



21 Apr 2015 23:07:33
This player sat in the reserves at International, was Andersons loan deal anything to do with our interest in him? Gladestony (on a short loan in 2011)? If so, what's your opinion on the lad?

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Don't think he is keen on a move to England. Apparently because cigs are too expensive.

What about Rashford? Jose make it very clear via the press that he did not want to hinder his progress.

One good season in a league were Gignac is the main man. Enough said.

Im presuming that you all watched the press conference live. I watched it and at the time I had no reason to believe that he aimed this at Wenger. He was answering the question "Do you believe that you now have a point to prove? " At the end of the interview Sky threw the quote up with a picture of both managers.
