Ed, Sky are reporting United are considering a bid for Ryan Sessegnon. Do you see us making a bid for him? Thanks.


{Ed004's Note - I've no idea. It looks like all the top clubs are keeping an eye on him}

1.) 21 Aug 2017 16:07:34
Apparently we are willing to buy and loan back like we did with Smalling. Seems a good deal for Fulham if they are willing to do business.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 16:38:50
He's certainly a player who looks very promising. However, he's nowhere near ready for the top end of the PL so a loan back for a year or two makes far more sense.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 15:24:51
More of an age issue with him, Ed002 said this months ago, possibly around January. You have to remember he is still a kid, whoever buys him will have to loan him back to Fulham. But, he does look like a talent.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 16:57:54
Seen him play a few times as my mate is a Fulham fan and I take his tickets when he can't go.

Actually started as a winger but injuries forced him into full back. His has a great engine and gets up and down the line well. Needs to work on his 1 v 1 defending a little but that will come.

His brother, Steven, was rated the better prospect before a bad injury, he's at Fulham too. Apparently he is a little reluctant to leave his family and his family will not let him go anywhere that he's not looked after. Not just financially.

Not ready for us yet but a loan in both the championship and maybe another in the EPL and he would be perfect to rotate with Shaw.



18 May 2017 18:47:41
I'll be the one who takes the Sly Sports bait today. Are we actually interested in Nainggolan? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Mourinho was very keen on Radja Nainggolan whilst at Chelsea who were not interested at the asking price for a player of his age - and if Manchester United are interested, he certainly won't be first choice for them.}

1.) 18 May 2017 20:34:29
Would be ideal player to add some energy to the midfield.

2.) 19 May 2017 07:33:16
Is he still smoking 50 a day and partying every other night? He's a brilliant player who'd improve our midfield immensely but he is damaging his own longevity with his lifestyle.



04 Jan 2017 10:42:59
Ed I'm assuming this is complete rubbish before I even ask, however, there are some rumours today that we are looking at Patrice Evra?

Apparently to solve our issues at left back which I wasn't aware we had since we're very well covered in that position. The only reason I can think of is additional cover since Darmian may be moving although Semedo looks to be the target for that?



{Ed002's Note - I really don't know anything of it.}

1.) 04 Jan 2017 14:13:53
Its based off Rio's twitter and everyone assumes stuff. Apparently its a coaching role next season.

2.) 04 Jan 2017 17:36:19
I would love to see Patrice back at the club in a coaching role. Great player, great guy.

3.) 04 Jan 2017 18:20:26
He could teach Luke Shaw a thing or two about how to look after yourself as a professional athlete.

4.) 04 Jan 2017 19:11:59
I would take him back for 6 months, just like Ibra with rashford, shaw could learn from him for the rest of the season before he moves into a coaching role, who better for shaw to learn from than one of (if not) uniteds best left back.

5.) 04 Jan 2017 19:16:32
Coaching role yes, playing no. We sold him when it was the right time to do so. The pace of the PL was leaving us and him vulnerable. Loved him while he was here, but can't come back other than as a coach for me.

{Ed002's Note - Do you think he is a good coach? Is Mr Mourinho happy with the coaching Evra has been doing to such an extent he has invited him to join the coaching staff?}

6.) 04 Jan 2017 19:34:41
I would give him a try ed, personally, but maybe my heart rules my head on that one. He was a very good full back and we have been a bit short in that department for some time. Can't see it doing any harm having someone with Evra's experience around the place.

{Ed002's Note - Typically Mr Mourinho would not have random ex-players coaching anywhere near the first team simply for sentimental reasons. Downhill from there.}

7.) 04 Jan 2017 19:39:03
Its funny why people would love to invite old players back as coaches, just to have them round like a sentimental thing.

Evra isn't someone going to be drafted in to coach left back, its laughable even considering it.

If he comes back he will be playing, because Jose thinks he can do a job simple as that.

8.) 05 Jan 2017 01:53:49
Ed has a point with the sentimental reasons actually, only have to look at giggs for that one.

9.) 05 Jan 2017 12:54:49
evra got torn to bits on this site for his last 18 month?
people couldn't wait to sell him.

10.) 05 Jan 2017 13:49:23
Good man jred. You are bang on there. Short memories sometimes.

Wouldn't have evra near the coaching unless he proved himself in that department first.



29 Jun 2016 18:01:07
Ed's there have obviously been lots of posts about who's coming in at United but is there any news on interest on the likes of Mata and Blind leaving? It was reported they were likely to leave when Mourinho took over but there hasn't been much news since.



{Ed004's Note - I haven't seen many of our players linked with other clubs}

1.) 29 Jun 2016 21:41:35
Rojo, Blind, Mata and Fellaini hopefully find some suitors.

2.) 30 Jun 2016 11:14:32
Why blind Fresh? Great squad player.

3.) 30 Jun 2016 13:19:17
I agree Irish. I would like him to stay but I'm not sure he will. There are plenty of teams where he would command a regular starring place. We will have to wait and see there had been none of our players with the exception of Damian linked with moves away really.

4.) 30 Jun 2016 15:10:30
Ken I also really want Darmian to stay think next season will be a lot more settled for him.



17 Aug 2015 16:46:21
Eds, I know that previously you've advised United have kept tabs on Toprak, Dragovic and Hinterregger. Has there been any movement on any of these players since Ramos has agreed a new deal and for the past few days Otamendi to City has become clear?



{Ed001's Note - not yet mate.}

1.) 17 Aug 2015 21:39:10
Thanks for the update Ed001. Hopefully we see some movement on a CB soon, any of the above would be an improvement on some of the options we have.

15 Aug 2017 08:59:06
Moving on from the weekend I was wondering what is happening with any outgoings from the club? A month of do ago there were numerous players who could have ended up leaving but we haven't really seen any departures from the first team squad.

Rojo, Shaw and Young are injured, Jones started at the weekend and looked very good, Smalling looks likely to stay as Lindelof looks like he is going to be eased in gradually. Add to this Darmian seemingly confirming he is staying, Martial scoring and assisting at the weekend and Fellaini's move to Galatasaray being pulled is it likely we see any major departures before the end of the window?


1.) 15 Aug 2017 09:47:43
Money men will want to trim the squad, manager would like a fat squad to challenge with. I suspect a few will leave, but only when some arrive.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 10:20:57
You imagine that Young is off once he recovers. Possibly Blind if Rojo recovers as I feel Rojo is rated by Jose. Darmian is a matter of time.

Midfield looks pretty rammed too. Fellani will go end of this season. Mata, even though I love the guy, could be surplus, depends on how well Pereira does . I don't want Martial to go anywhere but if he does, I pray its only a loan or we get a buy back clause if we sell him.

Valencia is 32 and now has Lindelof, TFM, Tuanzabe chasing him down. wouldn't mind if he stayed as a squad player but definitely not starting next year. Especially if Aurier is coming in too.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 11:24:57
Dont forget we moved some players on; Bastian, Schniederlin, Depay and now Rooney and even Zlatan.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 13:24:04
Young was gone if he wasnt injured. I really don't think Darmian is consistent enough for a top 4 side and will go sooner rather than later . Blind is a strange one, reads the game well and is a decent hard working guy . but does he really have the managers total support? a decent offer and he could be a shock departure.

Fellani gone within 12 months, possibly Smalling in 12 months.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 21:17:59
I think a few will leave in January and if everyone was fit then they would be gone now don't know were these stories about Felliani going come from there no chance of him leaving this year or next Jose rates him and he clearly has attributes that help the team not the best footballer but route one not many better glad to See him further up the pitch battering people.

6.) 16 Aug 2017 10:28:04
If all the players were fit then 2/ 3 would now be leaving such as Young, Blind etc.
If Aurier is signed then Darmian will go.
Apart from this all the rest will stay until January when hopefully the injured players are fit and Jose can let a couple go like last season.
The wage bill is probably not too bad because despite the new signings we have got rid of Depay, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Rooney and Ibra this year.
Really don't want us to sign a wide player (unless Bale etc) as want to see Radhford and Martial to get their chance this season.



06 Aug 2017 13:29:19
Question for everyone. With the eds confirming we have interest in both Perisic and Bale, who would people prefer?

For me it's Bale. As much as his injury record has been patchy over the past couple of years he is better than Perisic and has the ability to win games on his own.

Perisic may fit in with the type of player we need more than Bale but it's hard to overlook what Bale has done compared to Perisic.


1.) 06 Aug 2017 13:45:45
I don't know what happened to Bale's fitness. It's almost like Real Madrid put him on some steroid training regime and yes he's turned into a beast, but it's like it's messed up his body. He gets injured very easily. Listen if Perisic is going to cost £50m and Bale £90m. Maybe it's worth paying the difference for Bale. Similar age. Wages would be significantly more for Bale, but we were paying Rooney a Messi salary for years when he was producing Djemba Djemba performances. Bale can play RB, LB, LW, RW, CAM. He'd install fear into opponents. And more importantly it comes down to this. Forget the money.

Perisic or Bale?

2.) 06 Aug 2017 14:16:22
Bale all day long. Bale for 25 games will produce more than Perisic will in 38.

3.) 06 Aug 2017 14:41:38
Perisic all day lo g an twice on Sundays.

4.) 06 Aug 2017 15:04:50
One is a real world-class player who has done it in the EPL.
The other is perisic.

5.) 06 Aug 2017 15:28:52
Put perfectly Jred.

6.) 06 Aug 2017 15:30:49
Exactly, I think sometimes we act like the club CEO and not the manager. Forget the money. Think of which you'd prefer out of the two players. I don't know much about Perisic, but like Jred said Bale is proven in EPL. He is versatile and makes far more sense to me. If we are looking at a winger/ forward, RB and LB, then I'd buy just Bale and use Valencia/ Mensah and Shaw/ Darmian.

7.) 06 Aug 2017 16:05:08
Bale transfer to United has all the makings of a Di Maria part 2. A player who doesn't want to be here and is being forced out of Real to make way for their new Galactico. Not to mention that Eds have said that Bale has a situation medically and is a risk. Perisic for me.

8.) 06 Aug 2017 16:27:36
Bale is far more professional that Di Maria. If he were two move here he would give 100%. He's an honest footballer. Let's be honest tho, this is never going to happen so pointless thinking about it really.

9.) 06 Aug 2017 19:59:54
Periodic 40+ games a season, Bale 20+ and more than double the price with wages.

Perisic for me, at least he's on the pitch to help the team.

10.) 06 Aug 2017 21:38:17
27,31,48,44,42,41 games played for club only over the last 6 season is he as injured as people make out .

11.) 06 Aug 2017 21:47:14
Who was Perisic 3 months ago?

Who will he be in 4 weeks?

Bale every day of the week, he would be a massive coup, inject some real world class quality and fear as mentioned. Perisic would just be a hmm, so what signing, maybe he'd do well, but a bit of a Pedro type deal.

12.) 06 Aug 2017 21:58:50
How much do people know about Perisic? The odd game on tv, a bit of you tube? Gareth Bale is one of the worlds top players, a player who takes a team to the next level, has premier league experience. He is not an ordinary player, playing in Serie A, he has made a difference, part of a team that wins Champions Leagues. I cannot believe some would chose someone who may not take to the premier league over a proven top level player. For me it's down to ambition, and it's Bale by a country mile, Bale takes the team to a level Perisic can't.

13.) 06 Aug 2017 22:51:00
have to dsagree redman bale when he left spurs yes but last season average at best when he was not on the treatment table he is greedy and not a team player peresic when i have watched croatia has been there best player by a mile whether at wingback or left winger and is a team player if i had to choose peresic just because he is a team player.

14.) 07 Aug 2017 10:34:39
I like Perisic but the only time he would be Croatia's best player would be if Luka Modric wasn't on the pitch.



28 Jul 2017 17:56:51
Eds, can I ask if there is any update regarding our players with a year left on their contracts?

As far as I remember we have Mata, Shaw, Herrera, Blind, Young and Fellaini with only a year left. There are probably others I've missed. Out of those probably only Herrera is on the majority of people's team sheet every week but Shaw could yet nail down the lb spot if he works hard, Mata is a great player to have, Blind is a good squad player and Fellaini is a Jose favourite.


{Ed002's Note - I have no knowledge of or interest in contracts. Sorry.}

1.) 29 Jul 2017 11:58:04
Discussions with Herrera are ongoing. I haven't heard anything about the others.

We could do with all of the players you mentioned being tied down apart from Young who will most likely leave on a free next Summer if not before.

While Fellaini is arguably surplus we only recently splashed out on him so surely it makes business sense to get another year added to try to recoup a bit of a fee. The same could apply to Shaw of course depending on whetheror not he steps up. This season is surely his last chance.

2.) 29 Jul 2017 12:59:58
Shaw, Young and Blind have extra year options on their contract. Mata will be 30 this season so might be offered one year contracts from now. Pereria's contract is also up this season.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 14:58:32
I just hope we don't mess around with Anders contract!



26 Jul 2017 05:11:30
There's been a bit of debate over defensive midfielders the last couple of days.

As an outsider to be signed how about Krychowiak from PSG? I've been a big fan of his for a while now. He is tall and physical, is excellent in the air but also has a bit more ability on the ball than someone like Matic who we are likely going to sign. Another little bonus is that he has filled in at centre back which displays his defensive qualities, particularly if we are going to play with a 3 at the back this season. Mourinho is the perfect manager to get him back to his best.

He would also likely cost less than Matic and is also younger at 27. While he is coming off a pretty disappointing season he was excellent at Sevilla and one of the standout midfielders in La Liga.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 08:26:54
I was thinking the same thing the other day. Massive fan of his when at Sevilla and thought psg got a bargain at 30m for him. Hasn't quite worked out for him at psg for whatever reason and I personally think he would be perfect for us. Strong in the tackle with a very good range of passing. Kind of like Carrick with more physicality. It seems Chelsea are interested and think it would be a very shrewd signing whoever does get him.

2.) 26 Jul 2017 08:35:58
His style of play fits well with the PL. I think one of the eds previously mentioned Arsenal also had interest in him as well as what is being reported with Chelsea. If Chelsea sell Matic to us for the fees being reported then replace him with Krychowiak they will have done some great business in my opinion.

3.) 26 Jul 2017 11:37:46
I was literally wondering why he's not been linked with us just the other day. He's also done well when representing Poland and PSG seem to be the only blemish.



06 Jul 2017 11:30:54
I think it'll be interesting to see how Lukaku performs for us. I have no doubt he will score goals and we struggled to do that last season with it being especially clear against the lesser sides.

However, at Everton he was playing in a team whose opponents are much more likely to try to attack them or outplay them. This gave him space in which to run into when he was able to play off the shoulder. Will he be able to adapt to having less space in behind when team inevitably sit deeper against us?

I certainly hope he does because he has all the physical attributes you'd want in a forward and he is also a good finisher when given the chances as well as someone who is able to bring others into play. £75m is a lot of money but we need goals and hopefully he will bring them.


1.) 06 Jul 2017 12:00:48
Defenders have been sitting tight to him for a couple years now. His strength will be crucial to him. I think he will be a huge success. Little wager on him as top scorer I think.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 12:01:01
Replacing Rooney with someone who has the touch of an out of form Rooney, can trap and hold the ball like a brick wall, it will bounce right off.
Waste of money.

{Ed025's Note - pleased then eric?.. :)

3.) 06 Jul 2017 12:16:19
Not really, a waste and when Jose goes we will be stuck with him, Belotti or morata would be better.

Lukaku can be anonymous, irresponsible spending, tell me it isn't rue Eds!

4.) 06 Jul 2017 12:07:31
Eric come on, he scores goals that's what we need.

5.) 06 Jul 2017 12:10:22
Scored over 20 premier league goals 3 season on the bounce. Rooney did that just twice in his whole career. Lukaku will be a good addition.

6.) 06 Jul 2017 12:34:15
Did you see his performance against Liverpool, that's he is really like half the time never looks interested.

{Ed025's Note - it is a flaw in his game eric..

7.) 06 Jul 2017 12:53:03
That would seem to seem to suggest we shouldn't be signing him, what's the chances Chelsea snatch him from under our noses ed?

{Ed025's Note - i would be guessing eric mate..

8.) 06 Jul 2017 13:01:46
he scores goals, we need goals, he's available, it's a no brainer for me.

I agree GDS, as long as he is happy being 2nd choice behind Lukaku then we are fine.

Obviously having Rashford or Martial getting more time through the middle is good and beneficial for them but ultimately Jose doesn't play strikers like them as his number 9. It's always a target man so it's unlikely that even if we have good cup runs they would have got a huge amount of game time there. It took Zlatan to do his knee before either were played there with any consistency last season. Really hope to see them given a lot of game time on the left or right.

I think there are players we could potentially sign or currently have who are more consistent than Martial. However, I would not like to see him go.

For me he has more potential than Rashford but is more frustrating. He is someone who will either been seen as one of the best on the planet in a couple of years or he will be playing for a mid table side doing the odd brilliant thing followed by 6 weeks of underperformance. The left wing position is up for grabs and for me he should start against West Ham there.

Mata is a different case. Fantastic player but probably isn't first choice in any position regardless of what system we play. Great player to have in the squad who is likely to make a contribution but if we see a £20 m plus offer I can see him leaving.

Good signing. Likelihood of Pogba playing on the left of a midfield 3 with the license to roam a bit more. Also gives us a specialist defensive midfielder in our squad.

I'd read earlier today he also apparently got 7 assists last year which is more than any of our players.

I understand your thinking here Shappy but I think you're right in that you will be in the minority here. He is a top 5 player in the league and I genuinely believe that we would get more impact from 3 years of Sanchez than 5 or 6 from Moura. He is one of the group of players below Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo. We don't have an outfield player who is at that level.

Attitude wise with Sanchez it's hard to argue for someone who may have laughed when his team concedes or doesn't shake his managers hand. However, we have players who have been deemed troublemakers or unprofessional as well and they are still in the squad. They may have not have done things like that in public but undoubtedly there will have been incidents behind the scenes like at any club. To me Sanchez seems to get frustrated with his team mates in the same way Ronaldo does. He wants to win and wants to be the man. For me there is nothing wrong with that and at times over the past few seasons we could have been doing with more of that in our team.

Sanchez played a lot of his time with Barcelona and Udinese on the right as well so if he was deployed there he would be fine.


{Ed004's Note - I am worried about Sanchez's age and the fact he will start to decline but he was easily one of the top 3/5 players in league last season. If he is signed I expect him to either play on the right drifting in centrally where Mata plays or playing through the middle when we play sides lower down the table. Could be a massive boost midway through the season having a genuine world class player join who is more than capable of 20 goals a season}

No one in the side can come away with a lot of credit following a performance like that. Bristol City were great and deservedly won. It looked like we just expected to turn up and win comfortably without much effort.

A few players who played last night such as Darmain (worst fullback in the league), Rojo (we should be paying teams to take him) and Mkhitaryan will be lucky to be here past January. Shaw, Blind, Ibrahimovic and Romero will also probably before the start of next season and obviously signings will be made to replace some. However, bringing back Fosu-Mensah and Periera as well as promoting Tuanzebe would for me be the right way of replacing some of the above.

Name - Mighty reds

Occupation - Troll

Last seen wearing a full Liverpool kit holding a signed poster of Ragnar Klavan. He could possibly be looking to speak to someone called Maureen who he always has on his mind as he is a fan of the hoofball Maureen plays.

If anyone has any information on this person's whereabouts please make contact. While he has history of disappearing following big Liverpool defeats it hasn't stopped us all worrying.

Krychowiak to West Brom is the biggest shock for me. Really is a top quality player who has had a tough season.
