Reports surfacing today that we've made a 75 Million bid for Willian.

It's a difficult one really. we're desperate for a right sided player but we're most likely paying way over the odds for it no matter who we bring in.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 13:12:15
£75m for an inconsistent winger Chelsea fans wouldn't mind seeing the back off? Bloody hell this club!

2.) 27 Jul 2018 13:33:07
I think he is a fantastic player, I don't really think he is inconsistent at all. When Jose was there he was brilliant. The shape that Conte played meant he got less game time. As long as there is still money available the cost is of limited concern to me.

Plus blind Damian and rojo will bring in 40 mil which pays for half of the fee and frees up a ton of money in wages.

3.) 27 Jul 2018 14:19:13
worst winger at the world cup.

4.) 27 Jul 2018 14:55:28
There is contrary reports, ones suggesting Chelsea would accept offer of €75m from utd, others suggesting Chelsea are willing to drop the price after Barcelona opted against the deal.

There is no suggestion we have made the bid.

5.) 27 Jul 2018 14:59:05
Ed 002 always says talking about money complicates things so ill stick with that. If we want him and he turns out well then great for the side. Which i think he will.

6.) 27 Jul 2018 15:17:57
If we keep buying older players we will need a complete rebuild of the midfield in 2 years. Willian 29 herra 29 Sanchez 30 fellani 30 matic 30.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe Neville has some younger players in mind that he could use?}

7.) 27 Jul 2018 15:22:19
Hi all,
Thanks to the Eds as always.
I can not believe I have just read ‘inconsistent winger’! You must be joking? Willian has been Chelsea’s best player for the pas 2/ 3 years! When I think of a JM player, he is the first one that springs to mind. Driven both in terms of his defensive duties and intelligent attacking ability. Given today’s market I would pay that for him. Hazard is the inconsistent player currently on Chelsea’s books IMO.

8.) 27 Jul 2018 15:37:11
Twenty. or perhaps he's buying experience to win while he's here, when the overhaul starts, pereira fosu mensa gomes and chong will be ready to take over? He's unlikely to stay longer than this year I think.

9.) 27 Jul 2018 16:04:21
Ed002, are you hinting the idea of Gary Neville taking over one day?

I wouldn't mind that personally.

10.) 27 Jul 2018 16:31:56
Don't make me laugh boys. As a Chelsea fan I can tell you players don't get more inconsistent than Willian. KingGiggsy he's been no where near our best player for the last three years, he has a good first half of the season in 15/ 16 and other than that he's been either poor or had patches of brilliance. He was a substitute most of the title winning season with Conte preferring Pedro and last season Chelsea fans were disappointed with seeing him in the starting 11 up until February when he decided to turn up. If we get £75m from you lot we've well and truly mugged you off I'm afraid.

11.) 27 Jul 2018 18:44:04
We’ve got form for it tho. I mean we paid £40m for a slow laboured Matic, while they paid about £30m for Kante, one of the best in the world. Work that out.

12.) 27 Jul 2018 18:52:51
Knowing us ed002 it will be Phil!

13.) 27 Jul 2018 19:29:28
Sorry Stand, they paid 45m for Bakoyoko. Kante was the season prior to that. Keep up mate. You are just trying to knock us down.

14.) 27 Jul 2018 20:31:38
We actually regret selling Matid. Well I wouldn't have minded actually had we replaced him suitably but Bakayoko was truly awful for us last year although I think many still have faith he can improve! As I said though Willian wouldn't really be missed at Chelsea and you can do better.

15.) 27 Jul 2018 21:25:13
Matic is class. His replacement Bakayoko has been dreadful.

Signing Willian would be nonsensical given we have Sanchez and Rashford who can play there just as inconsistently.

16.) 28 Jul 2018 01:16:07
Signing Willian would be great at the right price maybe 35-40 million . I have to diagram with the negative comments about him, for me he us one of the most exciting players in the league and he can make something out of nothing. But i dpnt get why one of martial, rashford or lingard can't play on the right. Rashford and martial as the wingers would scare the he'll out if the best fullbacks and midfielders.



11 Jan 2018 14:17:20
Hey Ed002, you're probably getting an abundance of messages right now regarding this but I was hoping if you could share any info you know regarding this Sanchez bid?

I personally don't believe it's going to happen but it would be great to hear any information you might know about it.



{Ed002's Note - On the basis of something that was discussed this morning, it seems likely that Manchester United are showing an interest in Sanchez but it is unlikely to be a straight cash offer they are putting forward.

As to whether it would happen, wages might be one issue and Sanchez is looking to leave to win championships etc.. Manchester City are better placed to offer a solution to both of those issues.}

1.) 11 Jan 2018 15:40:38
Thanks for the info Ed. Sorry for asking but I don’t suppose you could elaborate on what was discussed this morning could you? I appreciate you’re probably sick of answering Sanchez related questions but will be interesting to see what’s changed. Many thanks as always!

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

2.) 11 Jan 2018 15:42:30
So if United make an offer for Sanchez it's likely we'll offer Mkhitaryan as has been reported?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what has been reported but it is one possibility.}

3.) 11 Jan 2018 16:04:55
Okay Ed, no worries! Thanks for the info.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 17:03:32
Sorry if this is a stupid question Ed, but would Man Utd make an offer for AS if they knew the player was only interested in going to Man City/ had no interest in coming to Man Utd?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. Who has said all of that?}

5.) 11 Jan 2018 21:30:36
Would be a fantastic addition. Wonderful player. Di Marzio reported it today, usually pretty reliable. But sounds like it is up to both clubs to come to an agreement.

6.) 12 Jan 2018 01:05:30
I said at the beginning of the season we should had gone for Sanchez.
Without a doubt we’d been a much bigger threat to City.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 07:52:03
Thanks Ed, appreciate your input.

Will be interesting if we do get hold of him as he's made it clear he wants to win titles and City are definitely a more suitable option for him. Money talks however.



28 Jul 2017 07:47:14
Ed002 if you have a moment could you enlighten me on any potential move for PSG's Lucas?

I remember a long time ago we were in for him but refused to pay the fees required?

I still rate the lad and think he could do a good job on our flanks.


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

1.) 28 Jul 2017 09:43:27
Cheers, it's a shame really. I remember getting very excited 4/ 5 years ago when I heard we were in for him.

2.) 28 Jul 2017 11:44:11
Another over hyped under performing "star"

3.) 28 Jul 2017 16:57:36
The thing is with young players.

They go to teams they shouldn't go to that early on in there Career by being ill advised.

Being greedy and believe there own hype.



16 May 2016 11:29:20
Well done to Marcus Rashford for making the provisional England squad.

Hopefully he gets some experience from this and comes back as a better player.


1.) 15 May 2016 09:25:24

They should have made the change in December and I firmly believe if they had we would now be comfortably in the top four. Once they didn't do that they were unlikely to say anything whilst there is something to play for. When SAF announced his retirement the first time it had an adverse effect and whilst there is denial over it there has been an impact at City from the Pep news. For me it needed leadership and decisiveness in December, we didn't get it, so have appeared as a rudderless ship since then.

The silence from the club probably tells us more. If they keep LVG on it will damage the club's playing prowess and image and I can't imagine the sponsors will be too happy, so for me I think there will be a change after the cup final. My worry is the choice of replacement, I hope they make a logical football decision not an emotional one. Three years and counting, with the present set up we have no chance of winning the league in the next 2 seasons and suddenly we will be building a mentality like we had for 26 years. Therefore right now we need a proven winner who could win the league. Like him or not when a manager of Mourinho's quality is available it would be utter madness to ignore him.

2.) 16 May 2016 13:07:29
I agree Redman. It is time for a change. Many don't approve of mou. I can understand that. However i don't see any better alternatives in terms of experience and with a better track record of winning.
He is the right man at the right time imo.
If we are stuck with Rooney he is the only man that I think could get another burst from him.
I'm hoping He will be appointed if not then i hope have a better plan than letting lvg see our his contracy.

3.) 16 May 2016 14:01:59
Fully agree. I think Mourhino is ideal for now as we find ourselves. Will definitely turn the team around and play to he strengths of the squad rather than trying to squeeze them into a preconceived tactical corset. I believe he will strengthen the squad prudently and not necessarily with Marquee signings.
Beyond two years, I take on board worries voiced elsewhere, and to a degree share them. Jose seems to be really wanting this job, and if successful, I think he will do everything in his power to keep it.
We also need to remember That SAF was no Angel when it came to the media.

4.) 16 May 2016 18:23:52
In my opinion it has to be mourinho . But I also get the feeling that Woodward is going to shaft us up the ring. Himself and van gaal seem to have a solid relationship. And which club these days do what the fans demand, I hope palace turn us over in the FA cup and I say that because, Than hopefully van gaal won't have a leg to stand on and he has to go.
Mour for me.

5.) 16 May 2016 20:16:17
Just a bit concerning that mourinho, s track record with young players, I admit this boring way ov playing can't carry on but wonder if a giggss scholes, g Neville partnership could work to get excitment back at our club, as good as mourinho is he never really plays attacking football.

6.) 16 May 2016 20:31:39
Newcastle played very attacking football this season especially under mclaren, gung ho style. That what you want then red locks?

7.) 16 May 2016 20:42:35
Has it done Leicester any harm either? That's how we use to play under fergie, a top cb like varane, a top right sided winger- forward and a box to box midfielder with a fresh approach is what I would like riddlet026 and to keep the young lads in the team.

8.) 16 May 2016 20:54:36
So did Leicester? And we used to as well, isn't that what you would like to see again riddlet026.

9.) 17 May 2016 08:43:31
Firstly, in relation to Mourinho and his track record with young players, do you think LVG would have picked the youngsters he has this season if we hadn't had injuries? No, he wouldn't have. Rashford has made a great impact on the first team yet LVG still comes out and says he isn't ready for the first team? Deluded.

As for fans not wanting to win the FA cup, that is just unbelievable. I have never understood this mentality and never will.

Finally, SAF was no angel, boycotting the BBC after the doc about his son and don't forget the trouble with Magnier over the horse spunk that led to the Glazers taking over the club. We need to get back to winning ways, playing great football. Look at the football and goals scored during Mourinho's first season in charge of Chelsea, great attacking football. Don't get me wrong, I am no fan of him courting our club in the way it has been portrayed, but we need a strong reaction now. Pep is going to City and I expect a resurgence there, they have finished ahead of us for the past three seasons, we cannot allow a fourth. Liverpool will be stronger next season under Klopp and Tottenham will be strong.

My first choice to replace LVG would be Pochettino but it looks like that is impossible, so the best available man is Mourinho.

10.) 17 May 2016 09:17:06
Yea, let's all hope we don't win the FA cup, and then hope we don't win anything next year as well, and the year after, when does it stop? Winning the FA cup is a huge achievement and we haven't managed it since 2004, whatever you think of the manager hoping the club doesn't win the cup makes me a little embarrassed of some of our fans.

11.) 17 May 2016 18:47:05
It gets more ridiculous every time I read it gds.
Why would any supporter want us to lose a cup final there is No rationale to justify it.



02 Sep 2014 01:13:39
So Danny Welbeck has left MUFC for Arsenal. What a sad sight seeing one of own home-grown players who had so much potential but never fulfilled it to our requirements.

I wish Danny the best of luck in London and hope he does well in the rest of his career. And I will never forget that Madrid goal he scored!

We have an alright replacement for him though in someone named Falcao? Never heard of him but all I know is he was in the world 11 or something last season? Seems like an alright prospect for us.


1.) I'm also sad he has gone but it's good to see new faces come in. Hopefully we will start winning some games after all of the money that has been spent.

2.) We need time to click, our starting 11 will be tricky. SAF had nothing but time and worked his system the way he wanted, anyone who was coming in to do anything either than what SAF did was going to have a roughy time. What LVG has done is great but he still needs time, new system, new personal, new style. He needs at least this season to get going and then we can be back on top 2015-2016

3.) Wellbeck's move is getting a lot of press/Twitter coverage because it was a surprise signing by Arsenal. His time at OT was up when Van Gaal came because the system demand clinical finishers. We need CL football. Would you rely on Danny to get you CL football? As much as I like him, I wouldn't.

4.) Always nice to see someone come through the ranks at united, but unfortunately his time was up a couple of seasons ago. never really made the grade, not really sure what his best position is.
£16m is great business for us. arsenal taking a back-up player from us, can't see that really haunting us what so ever

5.) Really shortsighted.

We now have 3 world-class strikers, 2 with knee problems and all at the age where they aren't really going to improve, with only a year or two before they start to decline.

Meanwhile we have sold the promising young striker who's going to be growing into his best just in time for the decline of the older 3.

Welbeck just needs some time up front instead of being stuck out on the wing. This is going to be just like Sturridge, and we'll be regretting this before long.

22 Aug 2017 12:14:07
Here's a what if question.

Lets say Barcelona don't get Coutinho, so they decide to place a £100m bid in for Martial.

Who here would accept it?

I don't think Martial is worth any more than what we've already paid but I also think he could be worth that price one day in this market.

Might not be a tough decision for you lot but I'm finding it difficult to decide on what I'd do.


1.) 22 Aug 2017 12:46:57
Easy decision. Its a no. I wouldn't sell them Fellaini even they offered 100 mill an messi. can't stand them as a club.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 12:52:54
Id say no. There is no point in selling Martial for 100 mill and then going to buy another player with potential.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 12:53:38
The money is irrelevant. Who would you buy to replace him? This is why Liverpool are not interested. EPL clubs have all the money they need. World class, or potentially world class players are in short supply.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 13:53:43
I wouldn't sell Martial, Rashford for anything. The club doesn't need the money we need to get back to being one of the 3 best clubs in the world. Lingard, Smalling, Darmian and even Mata i would be willing to sell.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 14:49:22
It's a no from me too.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 15:48:02
If we could agree a deal for his replacement before word got out, I'd go for it.

Unfortunately, if other clubs found out about the deal in advance they'd take us to the cleaners and thus I expect we'd end up with an inferior player in exchange. After this window I can see prices continuing to rise to the point where £100m for Martial will look like a steal.

That Liverpool are able to turn down £100m+ for a player of Coutinhos standard still astounds me and is quite a scary reflection of where transfer fees are heading.

7.) 22 Aug 2017 16:25:24
£100m. i am afraid that would be a yes from me.
I know he has potential, could become top quality but right now that is way above his market price.

8.) 23 Aug 2017 09:44:45
So we can pay 120 mill for someone who is on par or potentially not as good with less upside? Answer is no. If anything can be learnt from what is going on in football at the moment is hang on to your young talent.

I was huge fan Dembele and kept going on and on about him before he went to Dortmund, I am not surprised about yje numbers as most teams will price what the player is worth down the line than what he is worth today.

I think Neymar for what he went for if you ignore marketing and branding value stuff as a footballer is not worth half the money. Like 95% percent of Brazilians will have a short shelf life and IMO overrated.



31 Jul 2017 08:00:59
I don't understand some of the criticism on the Matic signing. It was only 5 years ago we were starting Carrick + Cleverley as a midfield 2!

Yes he might be classed as a 'Chelsea reject' now after the babyyakodokolala signing, but he's still a PL proven defensive midfielder, something we are seriously lacking within the squad.

50m is a lot of money, however as we all know prices have gone crazy this season and I can't see that changing. Walker just went for the same price!

Overall a quality signing and having Lukaku and Matic both added to our squad is a great push onto next season, we have a tendency to do well with signing other premier league players.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 08:36:38
My only criticism is the timing. Would have been nice for Matic to get a bit more of a pre season with the rest of the lads to hit the ground running at the start of the season. I'm sure there are valid reasons though.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 09:33:31
I think we were pursuing other targets and genuinely wanted Dier - when that wasn't possible we finalises the deal.

He is excellent at what he does and will be a great signing. Not required in every game but certainly needed in the big ones and in Europe.



20 Jun 2017 07:47:36
I'd love to see Ronaldo return but it's just too unlikely for me. The price and wages he would require just seem too much and this stage of his career.

Based on what the Ed's and the media have said I think a realistic end to the summer would be this:

Morata or Belotti to definitely come, looks like Morata is first choice. Either will improve us a lot, just hope we don't overspend on them.

Fabinho or Matic. I personally would like Fabinho because he can cover RB as well as CDM but I have a feeling we could see Matic return to a Mourinho sqaud, he was one of the best midfielders in the prem when they won the title under Jose and it looks like he's being pushed out slightly by Chelsea.

Semedo, Ed mentioned this guy a while back and now the media have jumped onto it (do they watch the sharkopod too? ) . I haven't seen much of him but it sounds like he will be great to have alongside Toni going into the next season.

Finally Perisic (If the price is right) . I've rated Perisic whenever I've seen him play for country but I wouldn't price him at the rumoured 50m. However if the club value him at that price then so be it, he's a hard working player who I think could provide the right workrate to allow the likes of Rashford, Miki and Martial to perform better.

I have faith Mourinho has the right plan to take us forward this season.


1.) 20 Jun 2017 07:57:06
Hey Weggy, I like all that but my worry is creativity, who delivers the magic? I know we have Pogba and Miki but I do think we have been lacking a spark.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 08:38:25
agree with all that weggy although I do like Amuydingdong from Dortmund as I've seen him regularly and like him a lot - I also worry where is that spark, the magician we need. Mata hasn't quite done it for me . Miki might step up alongside Pogba, but we haven't got that Hazard, Willian, sanchez player (yet anyway) who can really make things happen when on form that defenders are wary of.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 09:20:13
100 percent agree AJH every top team has at least one player who is capable of winning a match with sheer brilliance. In a way Zlatan was partly that guy for us last year but as good as some of our current players undoubtedly are they are not contenders for World player of the year. That is the level to which we should aspire.

4.) 20 Jun 2017 09:28:27
AJH, I think that player was meant to be Griezmann but as you already know that transfer seems more unlikely than Ronaldo right now.

Perhaps our interest in James is legit and we may see him come in?

I think we should give Miki the CAM spot and see what he has to offer, he has always taken time to get rolling at previous clubs so I expect a better turnout from him this season.

5.) 20 Jun 2017 09:51:26
That player has also got to be given the freedom and trust to express himself .
Miki and pogba in particular have the talent.

6.) 20 Jun 2017 11:40:35
I think it is Jose's style not to have that x factor in the team if a worker will suffice. Jose's teams have never been flash. I think if that was Jose's prerogative Miki would have been the player he was at Dortmund last season.

7.) 20 Jun 2017 13:36:43
I think our issue last year wasn't the lack of magic, it was being clinical in front of goal, what we need is someone who can finish off the chances.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 13:47:58
If I remember correctly, Inter have to recoup some money t be in compliance with FFP. Like Ed002 says, I do not like to get into money, however I believe it is around 30 million. If that is the case, UTD can sit around and stand firm on whatever price they wish to pay, as I believe Inter will budge on their end.



16 Jun 2017 14:39:02
Ed002 are you aware of any potential move for Ronaldo?

Rumours popping up about him wanting to leave Spain, unsure if it's all BS like usual.


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with MU.}

1.) 16 Jun 2017 19:28:23
Would united be interested ed if he did decide to call time on Spain?

{Ed002's Note - No doubt they would be on "red alert".}

2.) 16 Jun 2017 19:28:49
It is true he wants to leave then?

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page.}

3.) 16 Jun 2017 20:42:15
I asked about this on euro pages lads. 001's response was it's far too early to tell. I'm sure all will be revealed in due course. Will probably all be resolved and he will remain.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 20:46:42
Apologies I've been a bit unclear there. 001 only said it's too early to tell. The rest was my own opinion.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 00:25:01
Have to be aware that Ronaldo and Mourinho had a rocky relationship at Madrid towards the end, very unsure if Ronaldo would come under Mourinho.



19 May 2017 17:30:38
Angel Gomes included in the squad training today. Mourinho says he will take part in Sunday's game vs Palace.

What an achievement for 16 year old lad who's been at the club for 8 years already. I hope he gets a chance and shows off what he is capable of. Could be a very important player for us in a few years time.


1.) 19 May 2017 17:41:07
Delighted at this news.

2.) 19 May 2017 19:50:53
Great news for him and the other lads. A dream come true. Big opportunity to play on the biggest stage.
The only hope I have for them all is that it gives them the taste for more and that they dedicate themselves everyday in training and work on their game in order to get another chance.

3.) 19 May 2017 22:25:54
Very surprised, the lads a talent but he looks like school boy.

4.) 19 May 2017 23:43:08
The dawn of a new era 😆😆.

5.) 19 May 2017 23:46:13

That's because he pretty much is, great for him though to see what level is required, he's got a lot of ability but is 2 or 3 years away from being good enough, I can't wait for Sunday though to see some of these kids, it will tell us a lot despite it being a nothing game.

6.) 20 May 2017 00:26:23
He's arguably the best player we have outside our first team squad, and he's 16. He's that good.

7.) 20 May 2017 08:34:43
Like i said he is a talent, but he really is physically just a kid.

8.) 20 May 2017 16:41:02
Only found out today he's Nani's cousin.

It's a bit worrying when we prioritise keeping the likes of Jones but seem to not be worried about losing Herrera. Who in my opinion deserves an extension and should be valued higher at this club.

He's spent a good chunk of his time at the club injured or stuck in the reserves, so I think it's fair to give him a new contract after his recent spell of form. If in 3 years from now there is still no real improvement he will most likely be gone.

100% Agree dude.

We have a very strong squad and if we were to suffer any major injuries we have a strong back up in nearly every position. Add a LB and another Winger and we'd be tipped to win the league next season I'd imagine.

It's been like this for many years and will continue to do so.
