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.



09 Feb 2019 20:37:10
Hi Ed, how have you been this year so far? I was wondering if there is any United interest in Ndombele?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has, through a third party, spoken to his representatives to see if there would be interest, but others are already talking with Lyon.}

1.) 09 Feb 2019 20:56:41
Thank you Ed much appreciated.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 23:00:37
Manchester city are interested in him as 1 of a number of players to eventually replace fernandinho, someone I know was at the Lyon game just over a week ago to watch him and someone else for Lyon. This person who knows Paul Mitchell doesn't expect Paul Mitchell to come to us as a Dof either, not gospel just someone's opinion.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 17:25:02
I’ve not actually seen him play, can anyone shed any light to what type of a player he is?

{Ed025's Note - i think he is lined up to replace fenandinho at city next season caolan..



12 Nov 2018 22:41:31
What Neville said Sunday, the defence can't keep a clean sheet, the midfield can't pass forward and the front 3 aren't clinical enough, says it all in a nutshell really.
Whose at fault and how do we change it, well a mixture of tactics and quality of the players obvs but we are stuck in a weird position, change manager but for who? Stick and we drift, does maiden moans thrown at it for next season change anything, I don't know what the answer is.

A top Centre back alongside Lindelof, a right sided player and a dynamic midfielder would obvs improve things on paper but would anything actually change under this regime and by regime I don't mean just Jose. What a mess we are in, in terms of where we are aiming to be, I think we will struggle to make top 4 if I'm honest.

1.) 12 Nov 2018 23:43:43
Lindelof isn’t the answer.

2.) 13 Nov 2018 06:59:04
Depends what the question is FZZ!

3.) 13 Nov 2018 08:04:19
We have the highest wage bill in the country and are below bournemouth and watford.

We have an oppurtunity to get rid of a lot of players whose contracts run out at the end of the season, yet i am reading reports that valencia and young are getting contract extensions.

Baffling to say the least.

4.) 13 Nov 2018 08:47:28
Mourinho likes big strong players.
Matic is static and needs to be dropped.
We have some very good technical players in Mata and Perriera. Herrara is like a little jack russel and gets stuck in.
Bailly needs to play at the back again.

More importantly, can anyone see DDg signing a new contract or Martial.
We could lose a lot of players next summer.

I'd sell

Jones, Valencia (34) in August, Rojo, Darmian, Fellaini, Matic, Sanchez, Smalling, pogba is he wants to go, sell him. Lukaku, poor technically, not a top forward.

The worrying thing is DDG Mata, Herrera and Martial could all leave for free next summer.



10 Oct 2018 12:46:43
Any chance we will go in for Aaron Ramsey in January do any Ed's know?

{Ed002's Note - What I understand the situation to be is that Arsenal had reached a general agreement with Aaron Ramsey and his agent for a new contract but concerns were expressed about his "comportement" so a new deal is on hold but might yet be possible. Right now the two players that Unai Emery thinks about as possible central midfield replacements seem very unlikely options to the person I spoke with so it is unclear where this might end up. In terms of interest: Liverpool yes, and they would provide the best financial solution for the player. Juventus have at least four options in front of him so not right now. Milan yes they are interested - they have targets ahead of him but one is unaffordable at this time and attracting attention from elsewhere; the others are free agents in the summer but one is looking to head elsewhere and the other is Cesc Fabregas. I do not know of interest from Spain but, like Italy, wages would be an issue. Do not be surprised by interest coming from other English sides at some point.}

1.) 10 Oct 2018 13:44:28
Thanks Ed, very detailed response, much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Tielemans looks good doesn't he, been impressed my him, Ronnie would be proud wherever he is. Think he could go up a level? Guessing why he was loaned out means he wasn't at that level yet.

1.) 13 Apr 2019 12:34:45
I’m not sure WRD, I’d say Leicester are better than Monaco and the EPL is much better than Ligue 1. Didn’t he fall out with the manager?

2.) 13 Apr 2019 12:43:38
Attitude issues with him was there?

{Ed001's Note - he is a half-arsed player, a Pogba-lite. He doesn't put in the effort he should.}

3.) 13 Apr 2019 14:00:53
I must’ve just seen glimpses of him of late Ed, we don’t need another Pogba on our hands.



06 Mar 2019 23:08:54
One of the best European nights, with a depleted squad, youth, away at one of the CL faves to win like that, welcome back United, so proud of them. It was like it was scripted, Ole managed that leg so well.
Brave taking Bailly off and introducing Chong and Greenwood.
Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred and McTominay was immense. I know he made mistakes but Dalot I like a lot. Hats off to RedRom who is lethal atm and the nerve of Rashford to take that penalty.

1.) 07 Mar 2019 02:48:25
The only caveat I would add to that WRD is a) Bailly might not have been taken off if he had not been hurt in a tackle so it may have forced Ole's hand b) it was a risk to play Bailly almost as a right back for the first time and against a class player like De Maria. We were lucky they did not exploit that side more as Bailly was not comfortable there all night and c) neymar and cavani would have made a huge difference to their team and even if we had a full squad to pick from I doubt we would have beaten PSG with those two playing. Still lady luck often favours the brave and Ole and the team were certainly that.

2.) 07 Mar 2019 04:35:27
Agree with you. Fantastic and we have taken a lot of people by surprise given our depleted squad and first leg deficit.

I myself expected us to put up a very good performance given our away form and provided that Ole and his coaching staff would be looking to prove a point after things went wrong in the first leg, especially with the injuries to key players. But to go on and win the tie away with such an assured performance and great team work was really the icing on the cake.

Special mention to Lukaku, since returning back into the first team, he looks hungrier and seems to be growing into his role more and more and scoring crucial goals - many have been critical of him, including me, but credit to him for what he has been doing of late (could have had 2 hat tricks in subsequent matches) . That penalty was so crucial and Rashford showed great calmness in the situation to put it in the back of the net.

Ole is putting his trust in his players and the players likewise are responding splendidly. And after this performance, Ole deserves the job more so than ever before. Delighted for Ole, his coaching staff and all the players for bringing the smiles back at United.

3.) 07 Mar 2019 05:25:39
Hendon, Neymar and Cavani would have helped them, bu then Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Lingard, and Martial would have helped us. Just enjoy the win.

4.) 07 Mar 2019 14:19:40
Hendon, di Maria and Draxler were two of their best players last night also. Do you think they'd have had the same effect with Neymar and Cavani on? It's all hypotheticals, but regardless of their team, to beat them with a midfield of Young, McTom, Fred and Pereira is ludicrous.



04 Mar 2019 07:49:33
First chance to post since the weekend, well we are winning games in a variety of ways aren't we and winning wether we've played well or not. The attacking intent is always there tho.
More importantly at no point in the Southampton game did I think we wouldn't win, when we was 1-0 down and pegged back to 2-2 I just believed we would win the match, that's a massive shift in my midnset and I'm sure most fans, and obvs that's the players mindset now too.
We go to Paris next and while it seems unlikely we will progress a famous European night would not shock me, all of which is massive compliments to Ole, Mick, Kieran and Carrick, I have not had this belief since the day Fergie left.
Ok we've not played scintillating stuff for a few games now but to keep on winning with so much injury disruption is amazing, 3 points off spurs and 12 off the top when we was what 11/ 12 off 4th at one point, if there was another half dozen games to go on top of the 9 I'd be quietly thinking of reigning city in haha, momentum is such a key thing and I feel this is the first time we've had sustained momentum in a very very long time.
I think Ole is nailed on now regardless and while he may he inexperienced and I know people will have reservations if the boys continue to fight for the cause like they have been then there is no reason, with a few additions in certain areas we cannot challenge next season.

1.) 04 Mar 2019 10:22:16
Totally agree Welsh.

Ole and the coaches have turned Utd around.
He has shown that he can motivate players and he has been tactically astute in some games.

You can’t win all the games that he has and say it is just down to raising the mood of the players. It’s more than that.

The question is when he is named as permanent manager will he change any of the coaching staff? Will he want Phelan and if so will he want to stay. Presume he would want Carrick and McKenna.

We now have belief that we can win games and beat anyone. Top 4 and the FA Cup are more important than the CL for us this season. I only say that as we are a couple of players light of being able to compete with the top sides in Europe. Thus even if a miracle happened in Paris we are very likely to come unstuck going forward.
Despite that it is great that the team go to Paris with belief and it will be a good football lesson for the younger players.

2.) 04 Mar 2019 11:00:28
PSG are a great team. We were well and truly beat in the first leg but I'm still looking forward to the game. If we can score the first goal then it's game on.

Spurs have been dragged into the battle for top 4 too which is crazy considering where us, arsenal and Chelsea were 2 months ago. The most pleasing aspect of our games is how we've played when we've come up against adversity. The fans deserve a huge amount of credit for driving the team on too. They've been nothing short of spectacular!

3.) 04 Mar 2019 11:22:33
Yes, if we score the first goal early on, the game will be very interesting.

I fear for the midfield.
Our first choice trio of Pogba, Herrera and Matic are out.

It will be the first ever time Fred, Andreas and Mctominay will be lined up together.

4.) 04 Mar 2019 14:07:08
Good post Welsh. Unfortunately I can’t see us getting the win against PSG on Wednesday. We have our whole midfield out and I can’t see our second string beating a top side at home. However, I want to see us got out and there play to win. To go out there and put all their effort into overturning this deficit.

I agree that there seems to be a harmony with the back room staff. It will be interesting to see if Phelan stays beyond the season. I would like us develop either McKenna or Carrick as our next manager. Both know what it means to be part of our club and should be groomed as the next manager. We should aim to go down a similar route Barcelona have down by promoting coaches from within. Each manager should have the values and traditions of the club instilled in them.

5.) 04 Mar 2019 17:00:30
Psg are a top team, playing at home with a 2 goal cushion its a huge ask especially with our injuries .

6.) 04 Mar 2019 17:39:12
Psg away is the longest of long shots but you never know odd results do happen.
We have a brutal injury list and can't field any of our 1st choice midfield 3 and we will possibly be missing 2 of our 3 preferred forwards.
Ole will probably change the system to a front 2 which lukaku iterates better in.
We could see the likes of jones play in a defencive midfield role alongside fred and mctom with periera playing at the tip of the diamond.
But if martial is available i can see a front 3 of martial lukaku and rash with mctom fred and periera in midfield.

Get a goal first and they may get twitchy but i expect their class to tell in the end.

{Ed002's Note - Results happen in all games Ken. I predict a result against PSG.}

7.) 04 Mar 2019 19:51:10
Yes ed002 i think that's a fair prediction😂😂 i'm hoping for an unusal or odd result. If we win away at psg with these injuries i think that would be an odd result.

8.) 04 Mar 2019 19:56:35
Ed002. You seem to be very happy today.
Can you tell me if any clubs are interested in morgan sanson from Marseille he was held in high regard i believe by many . How has his season been and is there any interest from united?

{Ed002's Note - I am always very happy Ken. Spurs and Arsenal have shown an interest in the past - but that was 18 months ago when he moved to Marseille. Right now, they do not want the sell, so no one is looking.}

9.) 04 Mar 2019 20:16:46
Cheers ed002. I think he is a good player. If they are not looking to sell i'm not surprised.
Have a good evening.



30 Dec 2018 22:18:06
Is there a link to the Sharkpod? Can't lovate it.

{Ed033's Note - So presumably you would love to locate it.

Haha thanks Ed, must’ve been the wine.

2.) 31 Dec 2018 11:03:52
I think people should try youtube iff they can't find the Sharkopod here. Easily accessable over there.



29 Dec 2018 20:04:06
Armageddon is nearly upon us. Our only hope is that Pep and the greatest team that ever lived in any time ever buck up. What a dire situation. I have my tickets provisionally booked for North Korea in May.

Don't worry lads. When it gets down to squeaky bum time and all the players and Klopp come out with the usual "we're just going to treat every remaining game as a cup final" everything will be grand because Klopp will lose every one of them.

4.) 29 Dec 2018 22:34:29
After seeing their celebrations after the West Brom game, I dread to think what's coming if they actually win the thing.

{Ed0333's Note - it will be the parties of all parties mate.

5.) 30 Dec 2018 00:13:11
Don’t be that like guys flipping heck we got rid of the “special one” for you. 😂😂 plus we just opened up a route into the top 6 for you👍😂😂.

6.) 30 Dec 2018 00:33:35
Ed0333, I'm going to need an extra prescription of diazepam, mate.

7.) 30 Dec 2018 07:01:12
If they do win it then fair play to them. They play great football, Klopp is a force of nature, he has bought well and made them believe. Like it or not he has brought to Anfield what we have been lacking recently - passion, commitment, team ethos, attacking flair, belief, enjoyment. I won’t be happy but I’ll shake their hands and say well done.

It also puts to bed this nonsense of City being the best team ever, interesting to see how Pep copes as the pressure cranks up.

Right now, City and Liverpool are a big step ahead of everyone else and it reminds me of when United and Arsenal were dominating, I can see the 2 of them battling it out for a few years. Who knows, if Poch had has some money maybe he could have taken Spurs up a level.

Our challenge is to step up to the plate and get the next appointment right. Like it or not, the standard was set last year by City and is now being set by Liverpool.

8.) 30 Dec 2018 08:26:31
How dare you talk sensibly and reasonably Tony.

{Ed001's Note - oh come on, it had to happen one day. Law of averages said he would produce a post like that if he typed enough! ;-)

{Ed001's Note - awww we love you really mate, it is our way of showing affection.}

10.) 30 Dec 2018 13:45:09
Being nice is something new from United fan bro. All these years with United friends around they are so arrogant and mean when we talk about football. Not always it will be a banter from my United friends. In last few years they are brought back to earth. This turn around I love it.

11.) 31 Dec 2018 00:46:35
Klopp = serial run-up 😆😆 come on Spurs.

It’s surprising, while in one aspect I am happy that the club won’t pay silly money for someone to stay they’ve been happy enough to pay silly money on players that have not deserved it, yet with the best Gk around they won’t break k the bank to keep him, baffling, is this a case of they won’t give him what he wants full stop Ed or with the wages issue at the club they just can’t? Would like to think we are moving away from silly wages despite how I’d like him to stay on.

{Ed002's Note - The club has to be financially responsible with the wages.}

Hi Ed002, hope you are well. Could you give us a brief description of the structure of our club at the moment and how a DOF would fit in if you have time, apologies if you’ve been over it before, I think we are all a little guilty of not fully understanding this at our club. Thanks as always.

The manager is not the issue at this club, I said all along stick by Jose, the club not doing what José wanted and the players downing tools for him, Ole gets United and what it takes to play for them, he may not be the best manager in the world but to call for his head to replace him is ludicrous we need to stick by a manager and let him manage or we will forever be in this circle. Pep could walk in here today in the structure we have with the players we have and struggle.
Things need to change up above and we do need to be ruthless cz there are some absolute dross at this club and some rotten eggs, Japanese knotweed attacking the house I believe Rednev called it 😂 he is bang on btw.

I think Ole described it best in his recent interview and Fergie used a few of these phrases often, take ownership, have hunger and desire to win, play without fear, are they for and going to run themselves into the ground for the club and teammates, it’s more about a personality type as much as it is a skillset to be united quality imo.

What a terrible state of affairs, hoping certain teams wins and lose and not qualify so we can have a modicum of success. Big work in the summer, I agree on a post above about Ole wanting to change how we play, I feel Ole wants to be a pressing, high energy team with counter attack, as we’ve gone thru change after change we need to have patience now and Ed needs to let the football men make the football decisions, including transfers.

I think it’s that the managers haven’t been allowed to do their job thru restless fans and Ed Woodward not adapting to them tbh.

Wazza it is Ashley Young’s fault he turned straight into messi or that he continually gives the ball away or as a former winger he can’t cross a ball, it’s no good defending the indefensible, he’s a professional footballer and has been playing full back for years now, he should know how to cross a ball at least tho he wasn’t that good a winger let’s be honest. It’s time to move away from average players buying high fee or high wage types with no loyalty, often past their peak and recruit younger, better players that will work together for years to come that actually get that ethos and at least work hard for each other.
