Zlatan has signed a 1 year contract with is, seems like he will be back much before expected.

common_sense moyes

1.) 24 Aug 2017 14:28:26
Cue the meltdown.

Good signing for me as long as he is happy to be a backup / rotation, and I love the Zlatan song, glad we have another year of it.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 14:37:23
I agree as long as he isn't starting every game it can only be good for the squad and will also help to keep lukaku on his toes.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 14:38:36
I agree GDS, as long as he is happy being 2nd choice behind Lukaku then we are fine.

Obviously having Rashford or Martial getting more time through the middle is good and beneficial for them but ultimately Jose doesn't play strikers like them as his number 9. It's always a target man so it's unlikely that even if we have good cup runs they would have got a huge amount of game time there. It took Zlatan to do his knee before either were played there with any consistency last season. Really hope to see them given a lot of game time on the left or right.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 15:43:56
Doubt anybody has a problem with him signing again. The problem will come when/ if reputation trumps performance.

Shrewd move and remember me and a few others getting slammed for suggesting this may well happen at the end of last season.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 16:09:32
Lol it's a good move as long as he does x y or z .
What if he doesn't do what you want tho?

If fit ibra starts we saw that last season.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 16:16:48
Poor move. Step backwards to our better style seen this year.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 16:36:12
Jred - I think it's fair to add caveats to saying it's a good move.

Good move so long as he is treated as an equal and judged solely on what he does on the pitch/ training ground, not what the media, agents, reputation and Zlatan's own ego demand.

If he is afforded preferential treatment then it's an awful move.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 16:48:56
Great move πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

9.) 24 Aug 2017 17:03:13
I just hope he is not our supposed 4 th signing. Or our other forwards don't fall out of favour to get zlatan in the team. But if scores goals like he did before his injury it can only be a good thing.

10.) 24 Aug 2017 17:06:26

Fully agree, and as we have just signed a 90m striker I imagine the striker we have signed on a free who has taken a pay cut will understand his role in the team has changed somewhat from last season.

I know stand has made his mind up but none of us know how he will play, all I do know is that lukaku can't play 65 games this season and if we hadn't won the first 2 games 4-0 nobody would be complaining as much.

11.) 24 Aug 2017 19:15:27
But we have won the first 2 games 4.0 and looked very good doing it.

12.) 24 Aug 2017 23:01:45
Gds I promise had we drew our first two games I would feel the same. I like Zlatan, I'll support him and sing his song, I just feel he is detrimental to the way we attack and would rather see Rashford or Martial down the middle when Lukaku isn't playing.

13.) 24 Aug 2017 23:37:01

I agree, that's my point, but we played West Ham and Swansea, I'm not getting carried away just yet but I know things are looking better.

Can't argue with your opinion stand, I respect it but don't fully agree with it as long as he isn't first choice. As a back up striker he will be fine. Imagine 2 years ago turning your nose up at our club signing zlatan ibrahimovic. The other players all seem to love him, what he does behind the scenes might not ever be quantified, but I am sure we can agree he has a positive effect.

14.) 25 Aug 2017 10:47:39
Good move. Our new number 10.

15.) 26 Aug 2017 03:01:45
Three at the back which he as already tried out and said wanted to play may suit use lukaku and ibra at top mykie behind pogba matic cm with 3 at back and shaw and toni wb would be class.



03 Aug 2017 16:24:38
Marca saying if mbappe is to arrive bale must leave, i really hope we are trying to get him.

common_sense moyes

1.) 03 Aug 2017 16:40:38
I would only want us to consider Bale if he was less than 50m. His injuries mean he would be far too much of a risk for more than that.

2.) 03 Aug 2017 17:32:36
Swansea want near about 50 million for Sigurdsson, you seriously believe we would get Bale at 50m in this inflated market?

3.) 03 Aug 2017 17:46:15
Shappy 50m πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ he will sell for 80 to 90m i guess. i'd love him at united. Last season he only played 27 games he played over 40 for the previous 4 seasons so he is not a sick nite by any means. If we can sign him we should and he would be a great signing.

4.) 03 Aug 2017 17:55:58
One of the ed's has previously mentioned that there could be issues in his medicals.

5.) 03 Aug 2017 18:13:12
It would be a massive gamble given the fee they would want.

If his ankles are no longer made from weetabix I would take bale all day long.

6.) 03 Aug 2017 19:17:29
He's 28, and his game is based on pace. He has muscle and ankle issues. Even as a 21 year old in the EPL he used to have to wear strapping to stop him damaging his muscles. He has 2-3 years left at the top, how much of that he can stay fit for is the real question.

Bare in mind his wages will be in the region of 15m a year. On a four year deal that's another 60m in wages at least. Plus agents fees and the like the whole deal if we got him for 50m would likely cost us around 120-140m. For a player who will likely play 25-30 games a year at best over the next four years, while declining and many of those games he will be working himself back to fitness and form.

If we have to pay 90m then the cost of signing him will be closer to 200m. That's just madness for a player who's best days are behind him.

We got our fingers burned with Hargreaves. Let's not keep signing crocks. Especially ones for 90m.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 19:32:17
Again, costs are indifferent to me. I'm only really worried about signing a player that significantly helps us.

Undoubtedly on his day a pure world beater. But there have been many issues regarding his injuries and I believe one of the Eds have gone into more detail on that.

I just don't believe he will stay healthy.

8.) 03 Aug 2017 20:28:33
I'm with Shappy, it's a no from me. If he was as injury free as Ronaldo it would be a yes, but he isn't and would be a huge gamble at his age and with the way injuries have been going of late.

9.) 03 Aug 2017 20:54:01
For me I'd love Bale to sign. Like said before the previous three seasons he played 40 games + a season. Not to mention smashing goals in for fun. When he plays he's a game changer the likes we haven't got and I really don't see anyone else of that caliber who is available. Plus whether some of the fans want him or not he's the forward signing Woodwood has been dreaming since taking over. So I think if United think he's available Woodward will be off to Madrid to piggy back him back to OT so he doesn't go lame again falling off the plane.

10.) 04 Aug 2017 08:25:54

But according to reports (take them with truckloads of salt), Real want to part ways with Bale but Swansea know their future in PL is in the dark if Sigurdson leaves and want to thus hold onto him if possible so their values can't be compared. Also Siggy was fit for most of last season Bale not really and McGregor one said "you're only as good as yourthe last outing".

11.) 04 Aug 2017 09:52:39
Shappy I tend to agree with most of what you say especially regarding the injuries and his game being based around pace but surely a fit and in form Bale would transform us into major contenders for both domestic and European honours. I agree given the figures involved it would be a financial gamble for the Club but players of Bale's calibre don't come on the market that often and if we seriously want to get back competing at an elite level then it's a gamble worth taking in my opinion.

12.) 04 Aug 2017 10:22:58
Are people SERIOUSLY suggesting they wouldn't want to have Gareth Bale in our team because of prevous injuries and finance? Get a life.
He's one of the top 10 players in the world. In the time Perisic has played 152 games, Bale has played 150!

Bale will tear up every defence in the prem and will bring back the 'edge of the seat' excitement we've missed for years. If he can play in 30 games a season of our 60 then brilliant sign him up. JM will play him in the best 30 games.

As for the money, it's not like we can't afford him is it? If anything it'll attract more sponsorship and allow us to demand more money from existing sponsors on renewal.

Shappy you usually speak sense but bore off on this one you're wrong :)
Don't sign Bale, in what world would you not?

13.) 04 Aug 2017 12:11:35
Spot on shappy.

14.) 04 Aug 2017 12:46:00
Its a no from me as well. Wasn't there a report other day that he'd injured his Achilles?

15.) 04 Aug 2017 17:44:23
i can't see it happening this season but I don't see the harm with Bale in our team whether we sign him for Β£50m or Β£100m. if it was my own money it would be a different story. Jose continuously spoke about the influence Zlatan had on Rashford, Martial etc would Bale not be a similar influence to a player like Luke Shaw, Demetri Mitchell?

16.) 04 Aug 2017 23:04:22
Funny that angel you didn't say that the other week when i said what Dier will cost is relevant to todays market!

17.) 06 Aug 2017 13:06:31
Agree withs Shappy.

Ken check out the minutes in his last 2 seasons and 40 games is deceiving as he was being subbed in in many games with 15 to 20 minutes to go or subbed out in many that he was starting.

His game is suited for La Liga and Madrid more than the vigour of epl. Ronaldo and him hardly do any tracking back and are there to run in acres of space on the counter and the frankly the competition is La Liga outside the top 5 is quite poor and its mostly a question of how many goals the top teams can score.

He is very injury prone and will break down in the epl.



31 May 2017 14:40:37
Looks like the madrid journo was correct, Griezmann just confirmed that his agent has spoken with the club and he has spoken with his teammates, with everything now in the club president's hand. Over to you woody, get this deal done.

common_sense moyes

1.) 31 May 2017 15:09:57
He could have asked his agent to negotiate a new contract, informed his teammates of his intention to stay and left it with the club's president to draft. You never know.

2.) 31 May 2017 15:12:17
Where you get that from pal?

3.) 31 May 2017 15:38:40
Using us to get higher wages from athletico πŸ€” Also the transfer ban is still in place so they can't sign anybody this summer unless they sign and come in jan.

β€œIt's in the hands of the president. We'll see what happens. "griezmann.

7.) 31 May 2017 17:20:34
He's clearly a media whore. Seems to be new quotes from him every few days.

8.) 31 May 2017 17:23:33
Titchmatt google it, these are griezmann's quotes. Stockport he just signed a new contract last year, transfer ban will have very little effect on this as he has 100mn clause, pay atletico the money and he is ours, atletico can't do much about it.

9.) 31 May 2017 18:04:39
Whole thing is already getting on my ample bosoms πŸ˜‘ he seems he cannot keep his trap shut for 5 mins.

10.) 31 May 2017 18:13:38
CSM, I think the eds said before that release clauses for Spanish based players are only relevant if the buying club is based in Spain. We could offer Β£200m and Atletico could still say no.

{Ed004's Note - Those rules changed this year}

11.) 31 May 2017 20:02:22
Something tells me Greizmann likes the spotlight and would be quite happy for this saga to continue for the whole summer. Hunker down people.

12.) 31 May 2017 20:32:22
If we want him then offer the €100m and see if he signs on the dotted line. If not then he can piss off. Hate all the will he won't he bullsh*t. He has a buyout, or however it is worded, and they will want every Euro of that and rightly so. If we want him then it is straight forward, let's then see if he wants to come and put it to bed quickly.

Just read on liverpool site that utd have bid more than 75mn for mbappe, so have we given up on griezmann?

common_sense moyes

{Ed002's Note - This is not a new bid. It was a question raised in an interview today and Vadim Vasilyev gave the reason that the bid was rejected as their wanting to keep him. So there is nothing new.}

1.) 18 May 2017 18:52:26
Thnks ed002, i hope we do try and sign him.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have tried but are aware that Monaco don't want to sell and it would take a far higher offer to induce them to sell. The player wants to move to Real madrid but is aware that he could end up on the subs bench if he were to move this summer.}

2.) 18 May 2017 19:08:22
Personally i think he should stay where he is. Perhaps Monaco will lose a couple It looks like tielmans is coming in who will be a good replacement for bakayoko or fabhino should they leave.
He would be well advised to spend the next 12 months learning how to replicate the brilliant movement of falcao. He will get the move of his choice next summer after the world cup if he continues to develop.

{Ed002's Note - They are willing to lose a couple and Bakayoko will certainly be one. They could be enticed to lose more by enormous offers of course.}

3.) 18 May 2017 19:20:59
Is it just me, or would others prefer we didn't sign players who have obviously got there hearts set on a move to Madrid, Barcelona etc? Yes we had a very good ronaldo for a few years but we still haven't replaced him with anyone good enough in my eyes, other than a young guy who is already coming through our own youth ranks anyway.

Rather than sign an Mbappe who obviously wants to be elsewhere, I'd rather pay an extortionate fee for someone like Kane. He's probably not as good as Mbappe will be, but he is a genuine goal scorer, and worth his weight in gold going by this seasons goal shy showing. He'd probably not look to move abroad at any point so we'd get more than our money's worth. We missed out on shearer when he would have been great for us, I think Kane could be the same kind of player.

Highly unlikely, but I'd rather try for him than Mbappe.

4.) 18 May 2017 19:40:00
To me Mbappe is potentially another martial cost a lot n be inconsistent at a better level let's be honest the French league isn't the best he is good but not proven over a few seasons i'd stay away from paying stupid money for him!

5.) 18 May 2017 22:26:38
I would agree with you Brendan about Kane. Pay what's needed and he will be here 10 years. Guaranteed goals and can play a bit unlike Lukaku for example for me.

6.) 19 May 2017 07:48:48
I disagree with brendan when you sae Mbappe is better then kane not at the moment kane scoring in a much better league over 3 seasons consistently scores all types of goals all round attacker for me perfect for a united number 9! Just never going to get levy to agree to sell him let alone Tottenham!

7.) 19 May 2017 18:09:12
Statezz I said as good as Mbappe 'will' be. Kane is better currently, but more experienced. I think Mbappe will be better in the end, but I'd take Kane if offered a choice.

I'm not panicking yet but I did think that we would have a few more deals done and dusted.
I honesty think that we are wasting valuable time on trying to sign Morata. He's a decent striker but the money we have offered 60 million plus and the money Real Madrid want 70 million plus is ridiculous.
What are peoples thoughts on Lacazette. Lyon want 50 million EURO'S for him. Personally I haven't seen much of him.

Every year the same trf window not open but because we haven't already spent 300 mil on 5 players it is already a disaster. Chelsea spurs and arsenal haven't signed anyone and the players signed by city and Liverpool aren't players i would have wanted anyway. STOP PANICKING. We had a productive window last year and i am confident we will this year.

{Ed001's Note - Arsenal have signed Kolasinac.}

10.) 29 Jun 2017 10:06:31
I would not be surprised if a number of deals for clubs get announced over the weekend/ next week. As the Eds keep saying the window does not open until the 1st.
Jose will have given a list of targets for the areas he wants and that list will have 2/ 3 options that I am sure we will end up getting.
I guess the reality is that the players we want are not ones there clubs want rid of which personally i think is a good thing. As such negotiations take time unless we go crazy with our money offers which we have all said we do not want the club to do.

why is that angel, lingard is an average player who isn't good enough to be at utd. He won't be starting for any of the top 7-8 teams, yet he earns 100k for doing it. Now i am not one of those guys who think footballers should not be paid big wages or anything but if someone like isco who if blindfolded and had a leg tied up will still have more footballing ability than lingard earns half of what lingard earns, there is something seriously wrong.

Shan for me martial should be ahead of rashford, but any which way I think he will get decent game time. We will play around 55-60 games should be enough to rotate the squad. Also mkhi will play no 10 in most games I think it will be a 2 man mf in many games so it will give rash and martial good game time.

shan i would get rid of lingard, he is everything that is wrong with english football right now, 100k per week for a player who won't start for any of the top 6-7 teams in the league. Bale/ griezmann, lukaku, martial and rashford alternating, as the front 3 with mkhi/ mata behind them for most of our games, everyone would get enough games.

Was southampton performance from mkhi also down to mourinho's tactics, i hope he gets dropped atleast for the big away games, he can't keep the ball with any regularity, when he is not assisting or scoring he is giving the ball away that's how inconsistent he is, his stats paper over a lot of the rubbish performances he has put in this season, i don't think we can say he has played really well for 90 mins in any game yet he has more assists than most of our players in whole of last season, but when there is no end product like against southampton or liverpool you can see how much of a liability he is on the pitch.

Jred are saying that pep didn't have luck, because I remember them winning a CL final they would never have reached but for a blind ref who denied 3-4 legitimate penalty shouts against them v Chelsea. And as article says he took a Bayern team who were the best in Europe when he took over and got them humiliated by equal teams in CL, some real best manager stuff there. Also only reason he kept winning the Bundesliga the way he did is because he bought out his opponents best players, something he can't do that in England that easily, he didn't win the league last season, i wonder why.

What happened against Everton was something you saw a fair few times under Sir Alex not this rubbish.
