espn sources linking us to Saul Niguez.
Hopefully there is some truth.
He would be the dream midfield signing.


1.) 03 Apr 2019 13:39:10
I don't see it as plausible to be honest for a few reasons:

1.) The fee and wages will be vast to prise him away from atletico and away from potential other clubs interested. Only way is if pogba is sold which could happen.

2.) does he even want to come to us? I remember ed002 saying we had a deal agreed but pulled out because of the decision to part ways with LVG. that's got to leave a bitter taste in his mouth.

3.) City are rumoured to be interested, surely they are a better fit for him. Or he could look at how well things have gone for our last signing who chose us over city. A certain chilean attacker springs to mind.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has already met with Atletico on more than one occasion to discuss Saul - the issue is that they are far apart on price but they are also very much expecting Saul to leave this summer - and it would help to bring money in as they are looking at some significant changes.}

2.) 03 Apr 2019 16:22:59
The papers are now repprting that City has moved onto Rodri Hernandes as they seem as a better fit then Niguez.

Ed are you aware of this at all?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Manchester City page.}

3.) 03 Apr 2019 20:11:49
I just looked over on their page and he wasnt mentioned as a potential signing so i guess its crap news.



17 Mar 2019 17:35:13
Hi Ed,
Are Real Madrid still pursuing De Gea?


{Ed002's Note - There are a couple of sides who could look to DDG.}

1.) 18 Mar 2019 06:31:04
I'm guessing it's PSG and Juventus.



14 Mar 2019 11:55:24
Hi Ed002,

Are Dortmund open to selling Sancho in the summer considering the exit of Pulisic.

Is the interest from United genuine?


{Ed002's Note - No, they are not looking to sell him. A couple of EPL sides including MU have shown and interest but nothing has come of it.}

1.) 14 Mar 2019 15:42:38
He's young and inconsistent. Let him develop over in Germany for another couple of years.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 18:12:46
Yeah agree Shappy. The press is linking us to him almost everyday, so wanted know the truth behind it.

3.) 15 Mar 2019 10:50:18
Sounds like Woodward, build up rumours of big money transfer for rising star who's actually not for sale, chase him all summer with no success then on deadline day turn around and announce with signed a sponsorship deal with persil, gorilla glue and Kawasaki o an by the way I've signed Willian.



12 Mar 2019 07:01:48
Hello Ed002,
With Zidane reappointed as the Real Madrid manager, are any of their players made available?
And do United hold genuine interest in any of the players?


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Zidane or Manchester United but I understand that Jesus Vallejo, Isco, Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Toni Kroos, Dani Carvajal, Casemiro, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Modric, Theo Hernandez. In addition to that, Marco Asensio, interest from Inter offered as part of a deal with an English side but the player has said he does not want to leave and Sergio Ramos maybe will take a couple playing elsewhere and then a final year back at Sevilla - or perhaps stay one more season.}

1.) 12 Mar 2019 08:43:38
That's a huge number of players.
So we can expect transfer records to be broken this year.
I'm expecting Hazard to join Real which would severely weaken Chelsea.
Dani Carvajal is the only one I would consider for United from the above.

{Ed002's Note - MU has no interest in Carvajal.}

2.) 12 Mar 2019 09:56:28
True Red why not Casemiro?

3.) 12 Mar 2019 10:50:20
For Midfield, Saul would be a better option than Casemiro.

4.) 12 Mar 2019 13:42:37
Carvajal, Bale and Kroos would all improve us - not saying I want us to go for any of these guys though. If Ole is staying put, let’s Go back to the old blueprint if young hungry talent.

5.) 12 Mar 2019 15:41:30
I hope we avoid any of bale kroos or ramos this summer. Big fee and wages hasn't worked as you say eric get back to young hungry players. i'd personally love hudson odoi on our right side.

6.) 12 Mar 2019 20:54:07
Bigger question would be whether zidanes return opens up a possible move for pogba in the summer as opposed to players we can get off of madrid.

7.) 12 Mar 2019 22:57:15
That's my worry DSG.

8.) 13 Mar 2019 01:21:19
Pogba could be of interest to Real. Surely the papers will talk him up, whether true or not. If Modric were available, I would go for him. Tremendous player.

9.) 13 Mar 2019 06:40:51
Seriously Modric? He is approaching 34.

10.) 13 Mar 2019 08:05:59
Not sure I’d take any. Maybe Hernandez and maybe Casemiro. The others are on the wrong side of 30.

11.) 14 Mar 2019 23:39:01
We need fresh youngish blood in midfield.

12.) 15 Mar 2019 06:25:06
Agree we need fresh new blood not Madrid’s has beens.



28 Feb 2019 07:24:33
Hi Ed002,
With Frenkie De Jong moving to Barcelona in the summer, do Man Utd hold a genuine interest in signing Ivan Rakitic?


{Ed002's Note - Ivan Rakitic wants to stay but needing funds Barcelona will make him available but may seek a fee too high for buyers for a player who will be 31. Inter has shown an interest but have now turned elsewhere. I am not aware of any MU approach at this time.}

1.) 28 Feb 2019 22:56:18
At 31 if you factor in wages and transfer fee it makes no sense for us to sign him.

We have enough problems in the transfer market let alone trying to naively solve other clubs problems as well.

2.) 01 Mar 2019 04:43:35
He is a decent option to add strength in depth.
Proven quality player of the highest level.
And still has loads of energy in his game.
He could offer solid 3 years for us while Garner develops side by side.

3.) 01 Mar 2019 05:46:40
No disputing his qualities as player even though they are clearly on the wane now, but his wages will suggest that he is a first team player.

Havent we learnt from sanchez that buying players on the decline on massive wages isn't sensible.

Garner has matic and herrera already ahead of him, if he is good enough we need to make space in the sqaud for him now and get him regular gametime.

The 4th spot is still wide open.
Arsenal, United and Chelsea are all hugely consistent.
Looks like no one wants that spot. All 3 are capable of losing to anyone.

The match against Chelsea is huge. I believe winning 3 out of the next 4 will sneak us into the 4th spot.


1.) 23 Apr 2019 08:12:27
Worst case we might win the city game which would hand liverpool the title and still end up not qualifying for the champions league. We are a joke of a club right now. Hopefully there is some ambition shown in the summer.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 09:52:24
Worst case is us winning our local derby? No wonder people think we are a joke with fans like that.

3.) 23 Apr 2019 10:06:08
I don’t want top 4! Get rid of show boaters and rebuild properly without the pressure of losing in europe. We are mikes behind the elite of Europe so pointless entering the comp.

Play the kids in the Europa, and concentrate on getting back to where we should be in the league.

4.) 23 Apr 2019 10:49:48
Yes gds. Best case is we win the derby, city still ends up winning the league and we qualify for the champions league.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 11:17:15

Not being in the CL next season will mean another 2/ 3 years of 'rebuilding', as long as you are happy with that and not complaining when we have similar results to Sunday all next season then fair enough.

6.) 23 Apr 2019 12:08:10
Seems like it's battle of the dummies on Sunday :) playing Chelsea is the easiest way to regain form after a tough run right now.

I'm not looking forward to it lol.

7.) 23 Apr 2019 12:43:24
We need to beat City anf that should be our motive rach game. I don't care wjo wins the title but we shouldn't lose to City just because Liverpool qill have a chance of winning.



11 Apr 2019 05:27:03
I think yesterday we saw a glimpse of the football Ole wants to implement going forward. At times, the pressing was immense and we forced Barcelona into making mistakes. Not many teams in the world can do this to them. Fred sloppy at times, but he recovered a lot of balls and always passed forward.
He does suit our system. Maybe he is taking time to settle down similar to Lindelof.
Mctominay, the local boy playing between the 90 milion and 50 million man was full of energy.

The main difference between the 2 teams obviously was the quality. We don't have a genuine world class forward who can produce something out of nothing.
We defended as a team and I was really surprised that Barcelona did not have many genuine chances.

If we strenghten the squad wisely and implement the high energy football, we will definitely be a dangerous team.


1.) 11 Apr 2019 09:51:07
Agree with everything in this post!

2.) 11 Apr 2019 09:59:30
I suppose Scotland isn't that far away from Manchester!

3.) 11 Apr 2019 10:50:46
Great post mate.

4.) 11 Apr 2019 11:36:04
Surely, Once OGS gets his players rather makeshift players, our performance will be batter. I still have questions over his substitutions and favourism towards Rashford and Lingaard. Need to see after 1 window.



19 Mar 2019 04:58:27
Hi Ed002,
Is there any update on Adrien Rabiot. Do United hold genuine interest?


{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

1.) 20 Mar 2019 04:44:44
Thanks Ed. Just now saw in European page.



01 Mar 2019 10:56:25
So Antonio Valencia will be leaving in the Summer.
Ole hailed him as a fantastic servant for the club.

Who would you guys choose as the next captain for United?
Young might be one (although he might not play regularly next season), the other one I would like it to be De Gea.
Hopefully he becomes more vocal on the pitch.

I might get sticks for this but I would also consider Pogba if he commits to us and maintains the current standard.
He is pretty vocal on and off the pitch. The responsibility could possibly bring more out of him.


1.) 01 Mar 2019 11:21:56
Herrera. Most of our best captains have been midfielders.

2.) 01 Mar 2019 11:31:55
Herrera is a great shout.

3.) 01 Mar 2019 11:47:14
Herrera is the obvious candidate. Lindelof could be a good future option, but I don't think he's ready just yet.

4.) 01 Mar 2019 11:59:42
I do not think Pogba is captain-material. For me as a captain, you need to lead from the front and need to work hard on the pitch and set an example. Pogba's languid style and his antics when things don't work well for him on the pitch, would probably not go down well with his teammates.

5.) 01 Mar 2019 12:50:44
Pogba has become a father now.
Maybe that will keep his off field antics in check :)

6.) 01 Mar 2019 14:07:44
I might be stuck in a bygone era, but I think that the club captain should be someone who actually wants to stay at the club, so I wouldn’t give it to Pogba.

7.) 01 Mar 2019 14:09:20
thats if pogba is still here in the summer.

his agent will still be hawking him around.

8.) 01 Mar 2019 16:19:34
De Gea, throw in the armband as part of a negotiating tactic.

9.) 01 Mar 2019 16:46:49
Id give it to jessie.



14 Feb 2019 12:40:13
Hello Ed001,

United are lacking a solid right sided forward and a right back. Who do you think would suit the club and the counter attacking style?

Sanchez, Martial, Rashford all prefer to operate on the left side or through the middle. Mata lacks pace.

I really wanted us to sign Mane or Bernardo Silva before they joined our rivals.

Few posters have sounded out Jadon Sancho. He has proved himself for just 1 season, so I am not really convinced of him.

Ed002 had suggested Douglas Costa as a target. He has pace but not sure about his end product.


{Ed001's Note - Pepe would be good for right wing and Reece James for right back I would suggest. There are not many good full backs around but he has stood out as looking far too good at Championship level and should be in that Chelsea team really.}

1.) 14 Feb 2019 16:16:02
How about Cengiz Ünder for RW?
Also sorry for the random name but what of Mário Fernandes of CSKA for RB?

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in any of these players from Manchester United.}

2.) 14 Feb 2019 18:29:54
Nicholas Pepe seems to be a great shout.
But will he be ready to take the next step?

Malcom comes to mind, who showed promise in Ligue 1 but is struggling at Barca.

{Ed002's Note - MU has no interest in Pepe.}

3.) 15 Feb 2019 07:27:09
Ed are you able to disclose who the clubs targets are? Does it remain Costa and Koulibaly?

{Ed002's Note - Both are still of interest to the club Fresh!}

4.) 16 Feb 2019 06:50:40
I don't understand why the club would buy Douglas Costa when a young talent like Jadon Sancho is around. Perhaps the club football decision maker knows best, again?

{Ed001's Note - who says Sancho would be interested in joining?}

5.) 15 Feb 2019 23:55:56
Is that right? Man Utd have no interest in Jadon Sancho?

{Ed002's Note - They have no declared interest. In confirming Manchester City's option when asked this week Watzke also said there has been no approach for the player who is not for sale. When he left MC at least Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal expressed an interest but he had his heart set on Dortmund.}

6.) 16 Feb 2019 12:16:22
Thanks ED02 great info, good to know.

Agree Ken.
We need to be targeting a pacy right sided attacker in the mold of Sancho or Nicholas Pepe for our fast counter attacking style.
I've not seen Bergwijn play tbh.

Park. Lukaku must be kept, we cannot afford to make too many changes in one window.
We never know if a new player can settle in immediately.

UA we are already in this mess because of poor purchases. Trippier is not going to help.
Ideally we need 4 good fullbacks because this position will drain the players if we play high intensity football next season.

Dalot can cover both left and right fullback spots. We have struggled badly when Shaw is injured/ suspended. So 3 fullbacks fighting for 2 spots will provide good competition, will keep them on their toes and bring the best out of them.

Agree with Shappy's list. But I would definitely sell Jones.
Fred deserves another chance.

I believe Wan-Bissaka, Koulibaly in defence, Saul in midfield and Sancho in attack would massively inject much needed quality to the current squad.

Ole breathes Manchester United.
He epitomizes how a player associated to Manchester United should conduct himself.
Passion, desire and hunger to fight for the shirt.
Only a plastic fan will think Ole isn't a legend.

Exactly DSG.
We absolutely have to get transfers correctly from now, manage wage structure, sort contracts.
