Lot of rumours we have moved for segi Roberto.
Would be a surprise.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 15:06:54
Interesting rumour, I like him. But struggle to see where he fits into our team. Maybe back up in midfield and at right back.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 15:42:52
Would be a good back up like Shappy said.

Personally can't see the reason though, would prefer Fabinho if we wanted a backup CM/ RB.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 16:13:11
Not for the prices touted around.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:15
The lads a cm/ attacking cm got converted to play RB and lb just to get him in the team, he struggled at full back tho .
That's the Barcelona way, but he is not really a fullback and it showed.

5.) 07 Aug 2017 18:25:52
Mort 34 mill seems cheap these days .

6.) 07 Aug 2017 19:25:48
Just for your information, guys. Chelsea reportedly were willing to meet his release clause, but the player himself didn't want to move away from Barca. Make of it what you will.

7.) 07 Aug 2017 21:16:53
34 mill for a squad player who's be no more than cover is still a rip off.



04 Jul 2017 12:15:00
Do any of the eds have any idea if united still have an interest in lukaku.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, nothing has changed.}



15 Jun 2017 14:28:42
Reports Madrid have turned down a bid for morata and are holding out for 80 mil.


1.) 15 Jun 2017 14:47:17
If that's the case I'd say see ya and go look for a different striker.

How can they seriously ask for that much for someone who sits on their bench?!

2.) 15 Jun 2017 14:53:47
If that's the case and they come calling for dave the save. It's simple

We over price them as well. I can't stand Madrid.

3.) 15 Jun 2017 15:02:22
Bolger, I=if we follow the price for goalkeepers (Pickford 30 mil and Ederson 45 mil, there is no such thing as overpricing de Gea.

4.) 15 Jun 2017 15:18:09
Agree weggy walk away if there's any truth in 80 million we are trying to compete with real Madrid not finance their next superstar by buying there sub. Who else is going to give them anywhere near that, call there bluff and walk away or change target . I'd rather poke up Torino than real Madrid.

5.) 15 Jun 2017 15:24:54
The problem is we would be buying a player they don't particularly want and they would use the money to buy one the best young strikers in the world in Mbappe.

I'd rather pay an extra 30m and go for Mbappe instead.

6.) 15 Jun 2017 15:47:44

The problem with that is, that Mbappe doesn't want to come to United. You pay Monaco 200 Mil, Mbappe still wouldn't sign on the dotted line.

7.) 15 Jun 2017 16:44:33
Mbappe is so overrated one good season in france and there talking stupid money he's the same as martial but with confidence and playing in an easier league we need a number 9 Mbappe is similar to rashford, martial we need the finisher goal scourer! Morata'balotti, kane type player!

8.) 15 Jun 2017 17:30:18
If that's what Morata's price tag is get it paid and get him signed up, we can afford it, mourinho wants him and he wants to come. I would rather pay what they want than include de gea in any deal.

9.) 15 Jun 2017 18:09:20
Where does it end though GDS? At some point we have to draw a line and refuse otherwise the 200million war chest will only end up buying 2 or 3 players instead of the rumoured 5 that we're after.

I get the impression Madrid are just being arsey because they can't get De Gea from us easily.

10.) 15 Jun 2017 18:19:09
I agree GDS it's all speculation anyway.

The problem we're facing is the player is under contract, from what I've read Madrid would like to keep him and he has no real desire to leave other than to play more regularly which can't be guaranteed at any top Club he joins anyway!

Madrid can name their price, try and get the best deal for their Club and negotiate from a position of strength.

If we don't want to pay the money we go elsewhere but your probably talking even more money for the likes of Lukaku or Belotti and are either of them much better anyway?

If we don't go for any of the above who are the alternatives?

Do we go with just Rashford and Martial?

For what it's worth I don't think we'll pay anywhere near £80m and the deal will get done around £60-65m.

We set the bar high when we shelled out over £60m for the relatively unknown Martial, we can't blame Madrid for trying to get the best deal for their player.

11.) 15 Jun 2017 18:49:14
Danny IL try and offer a view as why a few struggle with morata price . What's causing his valuation people don't see it in his record, sub then 15 in two seasons at juventos then back to Madrid bench again, nobody saying he's a bad player . Is valuation because there's fierce competition for him forcing the price up, maybe but haven't heard much about that . Or finally is price seeming so high cause they don't want to sell, but they seem fairly keen to negotiate if that's the case, maybe they are only willing to negotiate because it's to good a deal for them not to . Personally I'd walk away explore other options and see if there stance changed a little if all interest went because of the price . Hopefully figures of 70 or 80 million is wild paper talk.

12.) 15 Jun 2017 22:20:06
These fee's are getting beyond a joke. Maybe it is just me but if we need to splash the cash wouldn't it be better to go after a Lukaku, Snachez or Costa who have proven guaranteed goals in England?

13.) 15 Jun 2017 22:36:31
40 mil. Is a good price for him.
When clubs see us coming they put the price of a player up.

14.) 16 Jun 2017 00:06:41
I would want us to go in for Aubameyang. Seems his move to PSG has broken down. He's rapid, scores goals. sign him up!

15.) 16 Jun 2017 07:17:20
I would take Aubameyang all day long - especially now the SUN (! ) is reporting Morata is offered 350,000 quid a week -.

16.) 16 Jun 2017 09:14:26
With you here MAZE.

If we're going to over pay for a striker we might as well go for one we know is capable of doing it in the PL.

Signing Lukaku for 80m makes more sense than signing Morata for 80m.

17.) 16 Jun 2017 13:45:31
It all comes down to how badly they want to sell him and, to a lesser extent, how badly the player wants to leave. If, as Zidane maintains, they don't want to sell him - then I can see them holding out for silly money. If, as I suspect is the case, they're looking to use the money as part of a bid for another player, they will try and get as much money as possible but will not push too much on the price for fear of scaring us away (as we are one of the only clubs stupid enough to pay that kind of amount right now) .

I can see us signing him for around £65m - which is way too much considering his true value but not so bad when you consider how much players like Carrol and Pickford cost in the past.

Personally, if the price rises much higher than £65m, I'd like to see us turn our attention elsewhere. I still maintain that every player has a price - and so if we're going to spend an insane amount I'd rather we throw the money towards the very best strikers like Kane or Dybala.

Their clubs may say that they don't want to sell - but offer the right amount and eventually they will bite. The players may say they don't want to move - but if you offer them enough money they will change their tune.

For what it's worth (and before people start making this point), I hate that I find myself making this suggestion. There was a time when I believed that the reputation of the club and the prospect of playing for us was enough to attract the best players - but that time has gone and football has changed. We haven't been competitive at home or in Europe for four seasons now - so we need to bring in the right players to get the club back to the top. If that means spending - then so be it. At least we're spending money generated by the clubs success rather than being bankrolled by oil.



01 Jun 2017 14:35:10
Matic rumour gathering a bit of pace.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 18:39:12
Good player IMO.



01 Jun 2017 11:28:55
Reports griezmann no longer a target and hasn't been for the last few week .
Big money striker will be the big signing.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 11:42:35
So lm hearing jred. Also hearing A. M want most of the payment upfront. Maybe, so many journos being briefed at the same time could be a negotiating tactic in order for madrid to lower their request. Either way buckle up, this saga may surpass twilight.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 11:54:33
It didn't say he is no longer a target anywhere.

According to the reports, he is still a target, he just isn't the top priority anymore as Jose wanted a no. 10 but following Zlatan situation, will now prioritise a striker.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 12:15:12
These are the comments made by Di Marzio yday, making wave now and have been recycle in other people's words. This is a proper roller coaster, i can't be asked with this transfer anymore!

4.) 01 Jun 2017 12:39:49
No there not.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 12:44:27
The reports say united turned there attention to a 9 when ibra got injured weeks ago .
Makes sense to be honest a new 9 could cost a 100 mill.

6.) 01 Jun 2017 13:10:24
Wasn't we after a winger and a striker anyway and now all of a sudden it's one or the other.

7.) 01 Jun 2017 13:54:44
My dad reckons it will be Morata and Bale coming in with DDG going the other way.
Claims someone in the know told him it's being discussed. He made similar claims last year about Bale so maybe take his comments with a pinch of salt!
That said would not say no to the first part.

8.) 01 Jun 2017 14:18:09
Jred, DI Marzio came with this yday. Griezmann was only 3rd pick and now everyone is reporting Griezmann isn't priority at all but still a target. The same sort of information but Di Marzio mentioned it first. Around 10oclock this morning ballague and a lot of others where having there opinion on AM ban, with a lot of them saying the exact same thing as balague, and that was all United need to do is activate clause which they are happy to do.

Few hrs later, a hear say article has hit on BBC about how Griezmann is no longer Priority with Moratta lukaku n other players being ahead of him. coincedently very similar to Di marzio yday!

Roller coaster and no one knows where it's stoppin!

9.) 01 Jun 2017 14:34:01
Either way it's a different story from a different source.

"Perisic is determined to stay, There was a moment [when he considered moving], but then he spoke like a footballer who is interested in doing the right thing for his professionalism and he drew a conclusion"

Big words from the inter manager.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 15:43:15
He was overpriced and MU didn't pay the asking price. I guess it's over with now or he's teasing interested parties to make a further bid? I don't know, but I guess if we don't pay the asking price then Jose isn't desperate for him or he has someone else in mind either this summer or next?

2.) 14 Aug 2017 16:46:07
He would be a decent signing, and probably over the course of the season might get us a few points here and there. I don't think he is significantly better than want we have, and he certainly doesn't have as high a ceiling as players such as Martial and Rashford who have both played in his preferred left wing position.

I don't think he is a transformative player for our team like someone with the talent of Greizmann could be. Nor is he the "missing link" player such as Matic. Just a very good player in his peak probably over priced.

Of course had we lost yesterday he would be an essential signing and exactly what we need. Lol.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 18:08:08
Am amazed Chelsea let Matic go to us, they are saying they're not upset at losing him but not so sure they're trying to convince themselves there, there manager clearly is upset, then again Roman needs those pennies for his divorce doesn't he.

4.) 14 Aug 2017 18:38:38
Lukaku starts and so should Rasford imo looks a threat every time he plays .
Big season for martial then you have linders mata and miki.
Not at all bothered if we don't sign perisic.

5.) 14 Aug 2017 19:12:20
We have rash and martial for the left, so ideally we need someone for the right. Unless Rash switches flanks which he has played before and martial plays left.

6.) 15 Aug 2017 07:23:25
Mata, Lingard, Miki.?



13 Aug 2017 20:28:42
Interesting comments by Jose on lindelof, not sure how much of him we will see before Xmas.
May depend if Jones can stay fit, which I hope he does I think Jones and Bailly could do very well together .
May see lindelof at rd give Tony a rest?


1.) 13 Aug 2017 20:46:17
Depends on who's signed I guess jred. But I wouldn't mess about with Bailly and Jones if they stay solid. They had a great understanding today and Jones battered everything. I hope he can stay fit, sadly he looks solid after 6/ 7 games then pulls a muscle. So frustrating. But I think he knows this is his last chance. I can see Smalling getting sold though. Maybe saved by Rojo injury, but he's the least safe in my opinion. Same with Young if a left back is signed. Blind can play in several position, although master of none. That may keep him at the club. No Darmian interestingly. Depends on whether or not we sign a fullback I guess, but we could get decent money for him. One or two players hanging on by a thread I think.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 20:47:26
I think aurier is being signed to add that competition for RB.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 20:55:46
Jose has talked about how good the dressing room is and yet we are being linked to a player that has been banned by his own club for the last 2 seasons .
And people want him?

4.) 13 Aug 2017 21:30:22
Who wants him?

5.) 13 Aug 2017 23:03:36
Said the other day that lindelof will be eased in and that's the way it should be, injuries permitting, not everyone can settle like bailly did and we should be patient with the young swedish centre half.

6.) 14 Aug 2017 10:03:16
Rightly so. He's looked very slow defensively sometimes, and premier league is anything but slow.
Bit of cup action and 1-2 rare start. I think he'll get time to adapt like Mkhi.



13 Aug 2017 18:19:30
What a team performance, what more can you ask for .
The first 11 played great we looked a proper team from front to back .
You build a team and we saw that today imo, Jose has said how good the dressing room is we look strong and quick with plenty of options.
Lindelof not even on the bench I'm sure his time will come but I hope Jones stays fit .
The lads coming off what was a very strong bench all done well.

If Jose can get the best out of this squad, like he did today we will go far, options everywhere.


1.) 13 Aug 2017 18:30:01
Good post jred, I am sure some will find fault and issues but 4-0, dominating, creation chances, I agree that the whole team did really well. One of the best performances we have seen for some time.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 18:45:33
How can you find fault in that? We were direct, fast, entertaining, ruthless. And we controlled the game from start to finish. Absolutely amazing performance.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 19:01:26
SchMid, it's more that people will say that was great, all we need to do now is swap x with y and so on. Sometimes you just have to sit back and applaud and today was one of those times.



13 Aug 2017 15:17:02
Lindelof, Carrick and herrera don't even make the bench and that's with young, rojo and Shaw injured.
Options options options.


1.) 13 Aug 2017 15:34:27
Herrera does I guess.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 15:37:19
Herrera is on the bench.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 15:22:04
Herrera is on the bench.

4.) 13 Aug 2017 15:42:30
Herrera there.

5.) 13 Aug 2017 15:53:40
Just seen herrera on the bench, still going to be a fight for a place this year.

6.) 13 Aug 2017 15:54:59
it will be a toking today i get a sense. said earlier 3-0 or 3-1 now leaning towards 4 or 5 nil maybe they sneak a goal.

7.) 13 Aug 2017 15:55:02
Hope bailly and jones r ready for chicarito.



10 Aug 2017 19:02:58
Could be interesting if we do sign aurier was he not banned in 2016 for putting some thing on the internet of him slagging the manager and ibra off .


1.) 10 Aug 2017 21:19:50
Yeah blanc and ibra 😂 But ibra is not signed to us at the moment so we can't be worrying about his feelings.

Eric but Tony will be first choice and play most the games do you think aurier would come to sit on the bench .
Or do you see Jose dropping Tony?

15 Aug 2017 20:08:23
I though the ed said it was a deal that could be done as the player was available .
Is he really a massive upgrade at RB?
Do people think Jose is going to drop Tony?

Nobody has the perfect team and every team will struggle if there best players are injured that's football.
I don't think the cob position is anywhere near as important as people make out, games won't be won or lost there .
I don't think a wide player is essential either we have a very good attacking unit .

Also just because you buy a player doesn't mean he is going to do great, look at lindelof and miki last year .
If Jose can get the players playing well and playing as a team we will be there or there about.

Young lad who struggled in his second season.
Loads of talent looked good preseason and in his cameo on Sunday.
If the team plays well he will improve as well imo, people are very quick to get on some players backs.

I think we will be fine with out 2 new full backs .
People want attacking full backs but Jose's will have to defend first, which they do . I think they do what there told to be honest .

Rose at lb looks a decent player but hasn't kick a ball since January is curently injured and his injury record is up there with shaws.
103 league games over the last 5 seasons .
Any RB will be an understudy to Tony as well imo as Jose seems to rate and trust him.
