Lots of reports of £55m wan bissaka done.



06 Jun 2019 08:53:44
Daniel James medical later today according to reports.

1.) 06 Jun 2019 09:34:46
So first signing is wrapped up.

2.) 06 Jun 2019 10:12:00
If all goes well aye. Maybe wishful thinking but looking at some of our supposed targets like Fernandes, Felix, de Ligt, we could see some more movement once the nations league is over.

3.) 06 Jun 2019 10:45:20
Really interesting signing this.

4.) 06 Jun 2019 12:12:39
the first actual winger we have signed since i can remember.

hopefully ole goes to the 4 2 2 2 that's been talked about.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 15:29:31
Bolger, the 2's play centrally to move the ball forward through midfield quickly.

James is best suited to a 433 or 4231 system.

Although I am pleased to see us sign a winger, I hope he can play on the right as well as the left, otherwise this signing will further unbalance the team.



14 May 2019 16:50:59
Rumours that we have 'joined the race' for Youri Tielemans.

1.) 14 May 2019 17:01:43
Be a really good signing. But ed hasn’t indicated we have any interest unfortunately.

2.) 14 May 2019 17:27:30
That doesn’t mean we’re not interested Park.

But what some have said is that his attitude is questionable.

He has looked good at Leicester. Hopefully he’s turned a corner but it might also mean he’s found his level.

3.) 14 May 2019 17:42:02
If he’s found his level at Leicester, he’ll do a good job for us. Think he’d be a good signing.

4.) 14 May 2019 18:32:14
Wazza, I'd bet it does mean we are not interested. Ed is on the ball when it comes to our interests and signings.

5.) 14 May 2019 19:30:04
Angel, I’m not disputing that for one second, it’s a big reason I’m on here and the other pages several times a day and I appreciate their insights as much as anybody.

But I’m sure there will be times when something comes out of the blue. Maybe I’m wrong.

6.) 14 May 2019 19:38:53
If looking at Leicester midfield players I would look at James Maddison before looking at Tielemans.

7.) 14 May 2019 20:17:07
Ndidi is another I would look at.

8.) 14 May 2019 20:32:45
The best rumour going on is the aigning of Koulibaly. Wow i can't wqit if he comes in and we get rid of Smalling and jones from the first 11.

You will see a massive improvement and confidence in the team by having a player like Koulibaly come in.

9.) 14 May 2019 20:51:17
Do you think we’ll get him Singh? I think the last update was he’s happy where he is.

10.) 15 May 2019 10:01:38
Give Napoli what they want and we will get him. I don't he is too happy being in Italy either as he is usually targwted racially.

Money talks and if we offer the right money we will get him.



17 Apr 2019 10:43:57
Hi Ed002, I was wondering if you'd any time for a list of players and positions MU are interested in this summer? Unless a Sharkopod is in the works? Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - RB, CB, CM, CM/AM, RW/F needed plus possibly a GK

Ahmadou Dia (G) one for the future - there has been a meeting this week (Monday) but nothing came of it

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) MU are interested
Davide Calabria (RB) - has been watched by Manchester United, Lille, Everton and Samporia
Thomas Meunier (RB) has been watched

Kostas Manolas (CB) - expect his name to get some publicity soon but persuading him to leave Rome and move to the wastelands of northern England may not be easy
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) a very good option
William Saliba (CB) - one for the future, but I would not be surprised to see MU look to an offer this summer - but I suspect it will go nowhere given the interest of others
Raphael Varane (CB) prior interest of Mr Mourinho could very well return but a discussion has already been held with another side - plus Madrid will try and tempt him to stay, although he wants out - I suspect he could easily be priced out of a move by RM looking to block the transfer
Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) ironically a Mourinho favourite and very, very expensive, so unlikely right now
Toby Alderweireld (CB) would be no more than a short-term solution and Spurs want him to stay and sign a new deal as they will already be losing one CB
Harry Maguire (CB) Leicester want him to stay but MU could return with a good offer - and he has the advantage of being home grown
Milan Skriniar (CB) Financial demands of Inter are excessive (well over €100M) and will fend off interest with a new contract
Ruban Dias (CB) - heading elsewhere

Declan Rice (DM) has been watched, but no declared interest

Ivan Rakitic (CM) some discussions with another side have resulted in a tentative agreement for him to move elsewere - but only if Barcelona make him available which will only happen if they can secure the replacement they want
Rodrigo Hernandez (CM) I suspect he will go to Manchester City instead of Saul who they consider too expensive
Saul Niguez (CM) - If Pogba is to be replaced, a potentially expensive option that Manchester City have stepped back from

Bruno Fernandes (AM) has been of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. I am not aware of any interest at all from Inter. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA - and like priced him out of a move to all but a couple of the interested sides. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets. Manchester United remain very keen and Milan have a creative solution in mind and it is certainly not out of the question that he will move to one of those sides this summer.
Joao Felix (AM) interest may have left with Mourinho and very expensive - in talks for a move elsewhere
Luciano Acosta (AM) has been watched by PSG, Manchester United, Genoa, and Newcastle but Fenerbahce have made an enquiry. A WP would be unlikely for England.

Jadon Sancho (RW) BD have no interest in selling
Samuel Kalu (RW) has been watched by MU but would be no more than cover
Douglas Costa (RW) price may well be an issue as asking price is €80M
Wilfried Zaha (RW) another option

Steven Bergwijn (LW/RW/F) has been watched by MU but discussions are in hand for a move elsewhere
Hirving Lozano (LW) a Sanchez replacement - else it is hard to see him getting any game time


David De Gea (G) wants out - but the club may block it
Antonio Valencia (RB)
Matteo Darmian (RB/LB)
Marcos Rojo (LB/CB) not wanted
Ander Herrera (CM) wants more game time but club wants him to stay - will likely go to PSG
Paul Pogba (CM) wants out - but the club may block it
Juan Mata (RM/RW)
Alexis Sanchez (LW/F) there is no clear route to end the relationship

1.) 17 Apr 2019 11:48:55
Based on the info ed has provided, I would be happy with the following happening:


Koulibaly (unlikely we'll get to CB's it seems)



Only issue I have is I can't see all those players leaving, some will find a way to stick around another year. Also can't see us get any of our first choices.

2.) 17 Apr 2019 11:51:33
It's also crazy how Douglas Costa could cost up to 80m. he isn't that good surely? I'd rather Zaha who is prem proven and much younger.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 12:07:54
Thank you very much ed you’re a star.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 13:00:47
Thanks a lot Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

5.) 17 Apr 2019 13:45:25
Thanks Ed, this is amazing!

6.) 17 Apr 2019 14:53:39
weggy agree with most of your ins as probable but koulibaly is pricey as per ed002 so think if anything, a 25m punt on toby for a few seasons may be possible. don't know much on Milenkovic, but a name not listed by the ed is the cb Andersson ; cheaper alternative?

As for the outs totally happy with your list as it is very close to ed002 with pogba a possible and sanchez a tough one to shift. Would add to the list DDG, not as a gut reaction to last nite alone but its apparent that he wants to go. Get the most we can and march on: after all not much point in keeping someone who is as unhappy as he seems. His reactions, reflex saves and saves with his feet are impeccable but I really think his commanding of the box at set pieces and distribution is [poor. don't have any idea who could replace him but we have romero and henderson.

7.) 17 Apr 2019 14:54:03
City fan here

Gutted about Saul. Honestly thought he is heading to City but then absolutely thrilled about Rodrigo. In Spain they call him the next Busquets.

Thanks for the info Ed02.

8.) 17 Apr 2019 15:03:50
Thank you Ed, top class as always.

9.) 17 Apr 2019 16:47:15
Having read the player profile on Nikola milenkovic I'd be quite excited to see him arrive sounds like he could be well suited to the epl.

10.) 17 Apr 2019 17:11:23
Just another name: wasnt so long ago you were a liverpool fan. not at all sorry to see you go. I hope changing the team you support 3/ 4 of the way through a season so you can 'celebrate' silverware helps you sleep better at night.

11.) 17 Apr 2019 16:57:15
Thanks Ed, and great to see us build from the back.

12.) 18 Apr 2019 11:28:27
Thank you Ed.

13.) 18 Apr 2019 14:42:49
Always good to hear what ED02 knows. very interesting as always


14.) 19 Apr 2019 08:33:04
Nice work Ed.

15.) 19 Apr 2019 10:58:27
Very interesting thanks for the info Ed.

Must admit I know little or nothing of many of those which, considering our recent transfer record, might actually be a good thing! I just want a new wave of hungry, up and coming players in our team.

Sell anyone who has doubts about staying and taking on the huge challenge of turning us into contenders. Or those that want to stay but are total rubbish.

16.) 19 Apr 2019 18:46:47
Hi Ed, I was a little surprised to not see Bailly on the outbound list, would you expect him to stay?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no effort to sell.}

17.) 19 Apr 2019 23:29:45

Zaha. Lolz!

18.) 20 Apr 2019 08:55:02
Thanks Ed, it's going to be interesting to see how he fits in next season, especially if another CD comes in and with Tuanzebe back in from loan.

19.) 20 Apr 2019 10:43:33

You mentioned on the European pages that there was interest in Nabil Fekir; is that still the case? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, there has never been interest from Manchester United.}



02 Apr 2019 09:01:00
In the news today we are to appoint a technical director later this year.

1.) 02 Apr 2019 09:49:08
I thought we have been attempting to do that for nearly 3 years now.

Although the idea that we will appoint one later in the year seems to suggest the club know who they want to appoint and they are currently in a job.

2.) 02 Apr 2019 12:02:12
the club seem to finally getting there act together and running things correct,

it may have taken longer than it should but hopefully they make the best appointment.

3.) 02 Apr 2019 12:39:34
Its Mike Phelan.

4.) 02 Apr 2019 16:14:26
Rumour is they are going to appoint someone who is already working for the club. One possible appointee is the chief scout. Ed 002 is this just the usual paper talk and if not do you know if he has the requisite knowledge and skill set to take on the role.

{Ed002's Note - I have dealt with this over several months including a few days ago - try searching please.}

5.) 03 Apr 2019 00:07:04
Sorry Ed. Will do.

"After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else. "

Says pogba.

{Ed004's Note - It really is a deeply worrying time at the club. Best players want to leave (De Gea, Pogba etc), loyal professionals over the years going (mata, herrera, valencia), questionable attitudes with our main youngsters (Martial, Rashford, Shaw) and a tonne of average players on highly inflated contracts (Jones, Young, Rojo, Lingard etc). Does anyone expect Woodward to get this club in order? Ole will be the fall guy this season but again we will start with a team thats just not good enough to be competing}

1.) 16 Jun 2019 11:42:46
Its been happening for years and until we press the restart button we are not going to go anywhere.

Woody and his gang are the main problem and then the players have no interest in playing for us other then money.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 11:44:47
Welsh Pogba is a scourge on this club and is the epitome of pig headedness that SAF worked years to rid this great club off. He should be gone and his likes and the likes of his rat pack mates should never be seen at OT again.

Lazy and selfish- good ridden to average players with **** attitudes (Maze, 2019).

3.) 16 Jun 2019 11:50:17
Why do you think we are linked with Longstaff by the rags. clearly a direct replacement for Pogba.

(Tongue in cheek for the record)

4.) 16 Jun 2019 11:45:17
Ed 002 says its nothing to do with Ed Woodward 004 so can't blame it on him.

{Ed004's Note - Unfortunately if youre head of a company the buck stops at him. Something isnt working and hes made no moves to correct it. We have been 'apparently' searching for a department of football for atleast a year now.}

5.) 16 Jun 2019 12:10:28
Pogba has wanted to leave since he arrived. He tried to leave last season too. But if he really wants to leave he should perhaps hand in a transfer request.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 12:10:57
I do agree, he is the face and the mouth piece so the buck should stop with him.

I think until it goes bad bad, like no one buying tickets/ merch and not showing up to games etc then nothing will change.

We are customers to them not supporters.

7.) 16 Jun 2019 12:17:03
Ed004 you missed out the biggest problem of all, sanchez’s contract.

A lot of our problems started after january 2018 when he joined.

Not surprised our best players want to leave as they can't trust our recruitment and managerial choices one bit.

Look at our last two big signings fred and sanchez. Saying they have been abysmal and awful is a huge understatement.

{Ed004's Note - I think the worry is replacing these players. Look at Madrid who have already signed 5 players. We needed that before we had to replace Pogba, Lukaku and De Gea. So realistically we have Lindelof, Shaw and Rashford to build around}

8.) 16 Jun 2019 12:43:57
Yh i don't trust the clubs recruitment at all, we basically need a whole new midfield now herrera, fellaini and pogba have left and matic has declined severely.

Even if mctominay, or a new signing like longstaff turn out to be very good players, its a pretty poor environment to put them in.

{Ed004's Note - Bruno would be a start but we need two more alongside him and can't really think of who we have been linked with. Ideally, hard working and energetic midfielders like Saul, ndombele etc. None of Matic, Fred, Pereira or Mctominay are currently good enough to be first choice}

9.) 16 Jun 2019 12:58:23
Ed, I've been saying this for some time re Woodward. Why have Real signed 5 players and we're screwing around negotiating. We should've got targets sealed and done. But Woodward will argue the toss with the agents, then go and give people like Sanchez a £500k a week contract. The man is a total idiot and a control freak, who thinks he's right all the time. And people like him bring down organizations.
For me, sign 3 of Rabiot, Fernandes, de Beek, Madison, and that should sort the midfield out. Sell Pogba and Matic.

10.) 16 Jun 2019 13:02:13
I think we will go back to a two man midfield personally and then play with a second striker behind rashford.

Especially if juventus are keen to include dybala in a deal for pogba then that could be a solution.

Then at least we could have a front 4 of martial, rashford, dybala and a right winger.

{Ed004's Note - I think if Dybala comes in it would be to play as a number 9. Thats where his best performances from Juve came from. Front 3 of Rashford, Martial and Dybala should be interchangeable. Bruno in behind and then probably 2 cms with mobility like Ndombele. Major surgery now needed this summer}

11.) 16 Jun 2019 13:13:15
Mino Raiola has clubs by the balls. I bet he has told Ed Woodward he can have De Ligt or any other of his clients if they sell Pogba and now this will be the beginning of his exit strategy. You can see why Fergie did not like working with Mino. would not surprise me one bit if Gareth Bale on loan is part of any deal with Real Madrid.

12.) 16 Jun 2019 13:28:17
The only issue now is with the state the first teams in we will over pay in wages for anyone we sign. Then u have our own players getting mass wage rises when signing new deals. Rashford if he's demanding 300k a week thinking any other club would pay him that is laughable. Personally pogba ddg going isn't the end of the world but we have to get sanchez out and dramatically drop the wage structure down. Weve become a underperforming club that pays mass wages on average players. Its going to be very interesting how woodward can actually get some sort of a team together that's for sure.



14 Jun 2019 11:56:35
Hypothetically who would people prefer, wan Bissaka or Cencelo?

1.) 14 Jun 2019 12:23:41
AWB as he is Younger, home grown, already played in premier league and performed brilliantly.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 12:33:15
I would go for Cancelo. He is proven at the highest level.
Mainly because the asking price of AWB is absurd.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 12:42:14
if we can get cancelo in a pogba deal i'd take it.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 12:42:34
Just focusing as them on right backs i would take wan bissaka over cancelo as he's younger, better defensively and has promise going forwards.

But cancelo could kill two birds with one stone, fill the gaping hole at right back and help facilitate pogbas move away from the club as he wants out.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 14:01:43
I'd favour AWB, although Cancelo is still a big upgrade on what we have. If Pogba is going to Juve, I would hope United would have a look ask for one of Pjanic or Bentancur as part of a deal. However, that's fantasy stuff. Sign AWB, ask Juve to pay the money for Pogba then go for Saul to replace him. That's the ideal situation for me.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 14:05:20
Wan Bissaka for me. Cancelo is great going forward but has been a liability defensively which is why allegri wanted to sell him. Wan Bissaka is younger and premier league proven. Either way, both are upgrades.

7.) 14 Jun 2019 14:45:38
I haven't seem them both play to be frank, so I can't judge.
But based on most of the comments here, it looks like Wan Bissaka would be the right option.

However, I watched few clips whenever a name is associated with us and looks like Aaron from Norwich would not be bad option at all.

Anyone who has watched him properly can suggest.

8.) 14 Jun 2019 14:53:01
Wan Bissaka any day of the week. He is better in my opinion and he is exactly what we need at right back at this moment.

9.) 14 Jun 2019 15:51:12
I saw Cancelo play for Inter at the San Siro. He was bloody awful.

10.) 14 Jun 2019 16:37:09
Wan Bissaka, he wants to play for us.
Does Cancelo?

11.) 14 Jun 2019 22:05:42
Cancelo is awful. Steer well clear.

12.) 14 Jun 2019 22:32:53
If Juventus are willing to get rid of Cancelo already does that not ring alarm bells?

I know they need to sell to buy if they want Pogba. there's other players they could sell to fund the deal.

Id try get Pjanic in any deal if not Dybala and play him in the no.10 role.

Id rather go for Wan-Bissaka as he was the best RB (defensively i think) in league last season.

Hes a lot better RB than Dalot who personally is poor defensively and all over the place.



13 Jun 2019 18:30:41
Hi ed, do you see clubs streaming their own games and fans subscribing to their club to watch anytime soon?

{Ed002's Note - No, the clubs have a contract with the PL.}



11 Jun 2019 22:25:02
I was wondering, I realise its not the page for it, but could there be a manager update for what clubs are interested in what manager?

{Ed002's Note - Right now MU are not looking for a new managaer.}

1.) 12 Jun 2019 07:35:36
I know, I meant clubs around Europe and their interest in what managers, as I say I realise the united page isn't the right page but just a thought.

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages.}

2.) 12 Jun 2019 10:12:05
Thank you Ed.



12 May 2019 20:15:07
An absolute embarrassment we are. Big job on for Ole now, worse than we ever thought, need to all stick together now, hope ole identifies a style, a system and the right players this summer, at few more years of pain possibly first tho.
On more positive news, Armageddon part 1 successfully avoided.

1.) 12 May 2019 21:25:28
Absolute joke of a club. The players couldn’t give a toss, do you think there really bothered when they get in their super cars back to their mansions and their millions in the bank. It might hurt them for a milli second not like us fans who eat sleep and breath this great club. Bin the lot of them. Sick of these overpaid clowns. I’d chop my arm off to play 5 mins at Old Trafford.

2.) 12 May 2019 22:10:43
Probably have saved a few that De Gea let in as well?

3.) 13 May 2019 08:43:50
There is much to consider and perhaps a lot is true but the darkest hour is just before the dawn. We as fans can't be the only worriers. surely owners are casting a concerned eye as potential revenue has dropped. They are business first and foremost and the core product being football so this surely can't last.
Anyway, three or four committed, character filled players (not even worldies) would help. let's not despair, this is a huge club and we have been down before.
