Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted the Italian champions have had no contact with Manchester United over midfielder Paul Pogba.

On Friday, Marotta poured further cold water on the speculation in an appearance on Italian television, simply telling
Sportitalia that there has been "no contact" with other clubs.

1.) 16 Jul 2016 06:37:13
The old adage applies. Never believe anything until it is officially d
I am hopeful.

2.) 16 Jul 2016 08:38:06
Dortmund did the same with Mkhitaryan.

3.) 16 Jul 2016 09:22:45
Have we put a bid in to the player's club? The more credible sources (relatively speaking) seem to suggest we haven't as yet; more that we've only held talks with his agent around terms for the player. And if we haven't put in a bid, and he's supposedly our top target, then why not?!

4.) 16 Jul 2016 12:51:19
Juve are negotiating other deals for incoming players. Why would they confirm that they could be getting £100m+. Only increases asking price for players they're interested in. Reality is the market knows. But no pointing making it easier.



17 Jun 2016 10:44:11
Well Mino Raiola has popped up again saying they are working hard to convince Dortmund to let Mikhitarian leave for United.
I like the guy (Mikhitarian of course! ), but Dortmund are downright SOBs when it comes to transfers and usually end up getting their way - just like Tottenham.

Eds "do you think we can pull this off? "

{Ed004's Note - I would like to think so. This seems to be a case of Dortmund trying to save face. They'll want their fans to think they tried very hard to keep the player and that (if he moves) the offer they received was too much to turn down for a player who wants to leave.}

1.) 17 Jun 2016 11:14:42
Thanks Ed. I do think Mikhitarian will be a good acquisition but my Chelsea-supporting cousin thinks I'm under rating the player. He's hoping the deal doesn't materialise, how do you rate the player?

{Ed004's Note - Haven't really seen enough of him but his stats where extremely impressive from last season}

2.) 17 Jun 2016 11:18:36
Thanks Ed004👍.

3.) 17 Jun 2016 11:26:03
Is t Mkhitaryan in his final year of contract there is no way they will let's other player leave on a free transfer next season I think they will sell him.

4.) 17 Jun 2016 11:52:54
They did that with Lewandowski.

5.) 17 Jun 2016 15:08:46
I hope we get Mkhitaryan. Right footed option from the right but very good at it - a rare breed. He scores and lays on so many chances which Zlatan et al should make the most of.

6.) 17 Jun 2016 18:45:53
Mkhitaryan was obviously the best player this season in the bundesliga. He is pure class and will even get better.
Just to inform you.

7.) 17 Jun 2016 19:05:04
One word, Kagawa.

8.) 17 Jun 2016 20:51:33
Different type of player.

9.) 17 Jun 2016 17:18:18
just a weird club who keep losing players on a free or it always seems like no one wants to stay or extend. No other club is ever in the news as much as they are with key players not wanting to say, extend etc.

10.) 17 Jun 2016 22:02:05
But that's probably more to do with Bayern winning every year X, and they know any top players they get once they start performing eventually they're going to go and bayern take all their very best.

Must make it hard to stay motivated knowing that's going to happen especially if you feel you have the talent to be winning things and clubs that are going to be challenging for titles come in and offer you more money.

11.) 18 Jun 2016 08:05:58

To a degree yes, but if they had retained what they had, they can give Bayern a run for their money. supposedly great stadium and 80k fans every game, A lot of teams in many other leagues who don't win the league but are competitive seem to have more loyalty from their players. Something strange at Dortmund.

12.) 18 Jun 2016 13:41:08
Was thinking this the other day gcu it seems they never have renewal.

What is this I'm reading about Ribalta leaving for Zenith?

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse.

1.) 23 Jul 2018 19:04:05
I've heard that the chef at Carrington has been offered the head chef position at the Lowry Hotel. If the club allows this to happen I might have to pack it in with them.

2.) 24 Jul 2018 09:23:36
Nathaniel that is a very naive reply. A business is only as good as its staff. Staff of all levels seem to be wanting out. It’s a big concern, whether it is a good player or a good scout.



20 Jul 2018 19:55:12
Though I've always been an advocate of standing by the manager (whoever s/ he is), I honestly cannot wait for Mourinho to leave.

He always has an inferiority complex with popular, confident and expressive players as such, he cannot hide his dislike for them.

He mentioned captain potentials currently in the squad;

“The captain was Valencia last season, I think he’s going to be the captain, ” Mourinho said. “And when he doesn’t play we have to make decisions.

“Depends on who is on the pitch, if Smalling is, if Ashley Young is, if Herrera is or Mata is, if they are on the pitch they have an option.

“Matic has all the attributes to be Manchester United captain but he arrived only one year ago.

“But I never care much about the captaincy, I care more about the life in the dressing room and the leaders. The armband means what it means. ”

My question is, where is Pogba?

I like my captains to be vocal, active and give 100% even if they're technically not too gifted.

With that, from his list, Young, Herrera and Matic are good.

But Valencia, Smalling and Mata are no-go.

For me, I would rather Pogba, Lukaku, De Gea or any of Herrera, Young or Matic.

1.) 20 Jul 2018 20:12:07
I don't think he would mention Pogba when Pogba is happy to leave the club.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 20:30:10
Moreover Jose is also happy for him to leave. I for one can’t wait for Jose to move on.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 20:39:19
Has Valencia done anything wrong as captain to be removed? If he is still first choice he should be captain.

I agree with Jose on the captaincy. It is over emphasized and made out to be far more than what it is. What we really need is for players collectively to lead on the pitch and take respinsibility when we are down or have to close out a game.

One speech by Pogba at half time being broadcasted has suddenly got everyone clamoring for him to be captain yet the French team had a different captain who rarely spoke and made a mistake in the final.

Perhaps we should realize you don't need to be captain to show leadership.

4.) 20 Jul 2018 20:48:13
Fans are more bothered about the captain than players, don't need the armband to be a captain .
Looks like Tony will be our captain and first choice rb.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 20:53:08
Well said Refaith. Captains in football is not as important as it is in other sports like cricket. Where each decision is taken by the captain. Football is too fastforward for the captain to be involved making decisions all the team.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 21:06:32
Not entirely clear how effective you can be as Captain if you don’t speak the language.

7.) 20 Jul 2018 22:23:46
Making a habit of this today but again agree with jred, other players without an armband can open their mouths and inspire and lead without it.

8.) 20 Jul 2018 22:33:49
Captains make a difference on the pitch not in the dressing room, managers make a difference in the dressing room.

9.) 20 Jul 2018 23:41:34
Played Saturday football for years and our manager gave the captain's arm band to the less vocal or talented footballer. Always seemed to give the player a boost. Never questioned his commitment in the games then. Players who have it all should lead by example and prove to everyone each match why he is best.

10.) 21 Jul 2018 05:51:46
Guys, the first thing I think of when you say captain is a person who is vocal, respected and loved by players, shares a bond of friendliness with teammates and can pull the team up during the game by motivating and haranguing his players to give more.

Based on this, would you choose Valencia over Pogba?

Redfaith you got me wrong;
1. I'm not advocating solely for Pogba - I also mentioned Lukaku.
2. Pogba gave a speech every game not only the Argentina game (you probably didn't know) .
3. Younger players have a special connection to players like Herrera, Pogba and Lukaku because of their infectious playfulness.
4. Valencia is quiet and his English is still wobbly at best (how many years in England? )

On a final note, how many times do you see Valencia, Smalling or Mata in-game dishing out commands and guides to other players?

That's why I said Matic, Young and Herrera are all capable because not only are they vocal, but also technically adept (yes, Young also to an extent) .

But when you take all these qualities; leadership, vocal, language, technical proficiency, will and desire to win, tenacity respect and bond with team-mates, then look no further than Lukaku, Pogba and Herrera for captain material in the team.

The second tier can hold Matic, Young and De Gea.

But Valencia, Mata and Smalling? 😂.

11.) 21 Jul 2018 07:59:25
Maybe Valencia, Mata and Smalling have been chosen for their length of service? Or maybe because they won’t be the types to question Jose’s instructions on the pitch?

12.) 21 Jul 2018 08:06:31
Neither Pogba nor Lukaku are captain's for their countries. That didn't stop them both rallying the troops at the world cup.

Ideally everyone should have a winners mentality and shouldn't need to be geered up by thier captain.

13.) 21 Jul 2018 08:37:04
How about what has Valencia done right?

We seem to have this noose around our club, that accepts ticking along as success. It was the same with Rooney as captain. Just maybe you expect your captain to not be Joe Average performer, even if you ignore the insane fact that our captain can't speak the language.

Same thing goes with the managers, too tolerant and too desperate to believe that a leopard will change their spots.

14.) 21 Jul 2018 09:40:42
I think WRD might not be far from the truth and that's in line with what I said.

Basically, Mourinho wants a yes man who not only obeys him but also does not have an opinion or does not have confidence to express himself.

15.) 21 Jul 2018 09:54:05
Let’s be honest, the only way is up.

Wasted when you wrote the post probably, Tony. Us old ones got it, mate.

22.) 21 Jul 2018 13:21:23
Don't think captain's need to be loved. I doubt one of our greatest ever captain's was loved too much. Feared, definitely.

23.) 21 Jul 2018 15:20:28
Valencia couldn't handle the No7 shirt . We are missing out by not selecting Pogba as Captain he is the best to motivate on the pitch and can speaka da lingo! 😆😆.

24.) 21 Jul 2018 23:14:25
Not when your opinion is contered
by facts yaz. Zanetti and terry nor cassialls were yes men. All strong characters who often fell out with jose but all kept the captaincy.
The nonsense was you just making stuff up. I agree with 2 of yoir choices as captain. Herrera wo t play often enough i suspect.
Jose said valencia will be captain weeks he plays hardly a ruining endorsement that some would
Have you believe.

Used to live in London and enjoyed a match at Fulham now and again. Great ground. Pleased they’re back. Villa too negative under Brucie but he’s done well to get them back and being competitive.



14 Oct 2017 14:43:47
This is not a knee-jerk reaction. But, for all Mourinho's good side, this is what I hate the most about him.

Imagine playing the worst defence in top teams, a team that conceded 12 goals in its last 7 games and you set up so negatively, isolate your striker, use Ashley Young as a RW while you had Mata and Rashford on the bench. And when you substituted, you took off Martial instead of Young.

How negative can you get.

They were running rings around us, players like Gomez, Henderson and Moreno lookin like worldclass players. We were second to every ball, afraid to commit and gave them incentive.

I don't even want to start on the marking type the coach ordered but time after time, they were cutting through us like knife through butter. I can't count the number of times a supposedly average Liverpool player took the ball through the center, dribble 3 or 4 of our players and drive into our box.

We have De Gea to thank though on the other side of the coin, his distribution today was as poor as I've seen it in a while.

And yes, I agree we lack flair players but the few we have (. Mikhitaryan, Martial) are shackled and made to play in a risk-free and boring way.

I don't want to tap about the disaster waiting to happen aka Smalling, he just isn't United standard even for the bench. Am I the only one who noticed the whenever he wants to pass there is a certain way he turns his body towards the direction then send his right arm opposite to where he intends to pass? Every time he wants to pass I know where it is going.

The players as a whole were second to every 50-50 and not fired up for the occasion like the scousers. I don't want to blame Lukaku as Liverpool players missed many chances and also De Gea was outstanding but I think he should have flashed his shot on the left keeper's right) instead of going across the face of the post and the game Would have ended differently because Kopp would have definitely changed the setup and it would have opened up for us.

I do agree that we are not there yet in terms of personnel and also, how we want to perform in the big games and maybe, at the end of season, this game will look like a point won rather than two dropped.

1.) 14 Oct 2017 15:08:00
Agreed, i'm very disappointed in the tactics today. Its pretty embarrassing.

If we had a good game end to end and drew then yeah fair play, but to play like we did today and draw that way feels like a loss and for me personally I feel a lot of resentment towards Jose. With all the money we spend and we are still holding onto results for draws just isn't good enough.
What happens if we get the likes of Bale or Griezeman and we expect to play this way, surely they would have a word.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

2.) 14 Oct 2017 15:10:01
They created 3 good chances and one was off a rebound. We have two fit midfielders. The players were awful today, first 20 minutes we got behind Moreno 3 times and the ball into the box was awful. Liverpool might ship goals but they also have the potential to put 5 past you. I understand people want us to go and attack etc, but at anfield that would play into their hands. I'd rather a point than going and attacking and losing by 3.

3.) 14 Oct 2017 15:11:28
I think the scouse are a better team than people are given them credit for played city of the park until mane got a red .
All managers have good and bad points and performances like this can be seen as a negative .
On the other hand it's performances like this that have served Jose so well during a very successful career.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 15:16:48
Jred, weren't Liverpool losing 1.0 when Mane got sent off? They were holding their own for sure, but they were not playing City off the park.

It was a negative performance and if it wasn't for a wasteful Liverpool then we wouldn't have even succeeded in this game plan.

But I do agree that our attack were toothless and that gave us little chance of ever scoring, surprised Klopp didn't take advantage of that.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 15:24:36
No idea where you got that idea from Jred, played city off the park? City were winning by the time Mane got sent off.

You should play for Jose you would be a good defender for him.

6.) 14 Oct 2017 15:33:52
Tactics and result was as predictable as Norman wisdom heading towards a banana skin at the side of a swimming pool . Didn't like our approach at all but come the end of the season JM will think there's more than one way to skin a cat . I think Liverpool are a bit better than people think and without our best defender and best midfielder it's not a disastrous result it's just the way we got it I can't say I'm a fan of . Not really sure why smalling was highlighted as poor we were under pressure most of the game and didn't concede it was lack of bodies at the other end but that's not smallings doing .

7.) 14 Oct 2017 15:34:08
They where by far the better team syd up until the red card and had far more chances against city in the first half than they did against us .
If it wasn't for a wasteful Liverpool team you would of been a couple up ;)

City are a fantastic team the scouse up until the red where good against city and to be fair where good against us today .
I fancied us for a win today but the scouse are a better team some are given them credit for.

8.) 14 Oct 2017 15:49:37
Even conceding a goal we were the best team during the city game, the sending off DID change the game, denying that would suggest to me you aren't receiving enough benefits from the 'gumment' but as I've stated already based on form united should have took it to Liverpool but Jose was too hesitant, towards the end he brought on an extra defender. SAF would have gone all out, hence my respect for him and lack of it for billion pound Jose. The fans were good today (both sides) but united were boring, you can say thy succeeded in their aim but it doesn't bode well if you don't aim to attack an out of form Liverpool team. Lukaku wasn't effective, rashford should have started martial did diddly squat I think lingaard is useless but atleast that lad puts his all in. You any not agree but I'm not here to stir just provoke debate.

9.) 14 Oct 2017 15:50:10
What's to defend we have been fantastic this season .
Liverpool where far better than city up until the red but aguero done what lukaku never and took the one decent chance .
The scouse played well today as well so far play to them.

10.) 14 Oct 2017 15:25:20
According to Jose he was waiting for Klopp to drop to a two man midfield and then push for a counter attacking goal. But Klopp never pushed for that winner neither. But Klopp has done that all season. When he's needed goals he still sticks with a 3-man midfield. Takes attackers off and replaces them, never adds attackers to what's already on the field. That would frustrate me as a Liverpool fan.

Jose played for the draw, but we were lucky to escape with a draw. This bus today was opened up many times and if they had scored it could have been a disaster as we had no way to change the game.

11.) 14 Oct 2017 16:05:06
I agree with jred on this one to a large degree. I also fancied us to win today but when i saw the team it was obviius that there was no real attacking intent.
Liveroool are low on confidence but do have some very good players and have the best record against the top sides.
The manner of our approach was disappointing but not surprising. Its what jose has done for years.
Darmian is ponderous and negative in every respect but that's why he was picked today.
I think darmian had a negative effect on martial too as he offers no support and creates no space or time for anybody ahead of him.
Still in all a point at anfield is never the worst thing but the manner of our approach is hard to take on the back of our great start.

12.) 14 Oct 2017 16:06:27
Liverpool's attack are good, their midfield are good, their defence are dire. Goalkeeper is dire. The game went pretty much as I expected. We park the bus and let them have the possession, then counter and try and punish. Problem is our attack was p1ss poor and our bus was very lucky, Jones was comical at times. Darmian tragically poor.

So I didn't underestimate Liverpool, I am just disappointed we didn't have a good go. Set pieces were awful too, just a very poor performance and very lucky not to concede.

13.) 14 Oct 2017 17:20:17
Jones made 1 mistake the whole game.

14.) 14 Oct 2017 19:12:38
One potentially catastrophic error, another bad one. and a couple more little errors. Jones has been mostly good this season, but today was far from his best game. But he's human and I have a feeling he may have been injured.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that once Smalling is around, Jose will always have a reason to play him (cos he's almost always fit) .

So naturally, we want him out of the way.

As for Jones, it'll be unlikely that he'll ever be more than a sub or backup (due to several reasons top of which is staying fit) .

Consistently grab headlines? Has he ever independently issued pressers? He was asked his opinion and he obliged.

Why haven't you been complaining about Mourinho slating his players via same medium?

There is no player that wants to be under such a negative and toxic manager. Ed002 explained that Mourinho is friendly towards his players but he doesn't forgive and he keeps grudges which is bad for the players.

& you can't just use players' seeming demeanor to detect if they love the club or not. Just take Berbatov as an example. Different personas and temperament.

You guys act like these players are robots or insensitive.

Of course we know what Pogba is all about.

He said it.

He's about attack, desire to win.

He questioned playing defensively against teams like Wolves and now Derby

Last year we got kicked out by Bristol City - maybe you lot have forgotten.

We had only 3 shots on target today and almost every other match we've played in the last three years.

Martial plays beautifully one week and is benched for 5 more weeks.

At least, Pogba made a statement towards Mourinho, and you guys have all been on his neck. But last season after the exit to Sevilla in UCL what did Mourinho say? I ask you lot, what did he say?

He desecrated on the club, its fans and ethos.

He flirted with PSG through out last season. I didn't hear him give his respect and dedication towards staying at United until after PSG appointed Thomas Tichel.

Who amongst you gave a rats ass or even pretended that Mourinho was out of line? Who complained that Mourinho doesn't love the club or wasn't committed?

It's disheartening that football fans fail to grasp clear and unambiguous stuff.

I do accept that Pogba stepped out of the line. That the dressing room or tactics room is the best place for such a discussion.

He was asked a question regarding lack of attack and he said "WE ARE MAN UNITED, WE SHOULD COME OUT AND ATTACK. ESPECIALLY AT OLD TRAFFORD". He was asked why they didn't play that way and he said the manager should be asked not him.

How the £#&@ can anyone say he doesn't care about the club? He said "we".

And all you man chatting BS here about Pogba not coming out to dedicate himself to the club are high on something.

How is he going to dedicate himself to a club that tried to sell him all summer and a warring manager who never forgives or let go of a grudge?

Long story short, you can keep barking up the wrong tree but the problem is very easy to see.

You guys are unbelievable, lol. Turning on a player who not only had his foundation but is also a United supporter.

What makes you think you're more of a fan than some of these players who not only support the team they play for but also have their status intertwined with the success of the team?

BTW, how's the game going? Hope now that Pogba is not on the pitch we're playing better.

You guys surprise me, it's like people just watch football but are oblivious of the game. Wolves, Derby, Watford all play is like we are the small team and they are united.
