Reports coming out that we have agreed a contract and terms with telles and are now working on a fee with Porto. Hopefully true but in this window I wouldn't be sure. Fingers crossed though.

I've seen similar reports, along with the possibility of Traoré from Atalanta, but there are issues regarding his identity or something so United want to make sure the legal stuff is out of the way before making a bid.

I think PSG are in for him too by the sounds of it. Hopefully not, I think he could be a great signing, I think he’s good for a goal for a fullback I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

18 Sep 2020 19:46:28
So that essentially means we will dither over a couple of pounds and not get him 😂😂.

FR just confirmed we have agreed personal terms and negotiating a fee with Porto.
He is one of the 3 LB on the shortlist it seems.

Can't see anyone taking Jones to be honest not on the wages he is on and his injury record, we are stuck with him I think, can't believe we gave him another contract and didn't just let him leave on a free.

Burnley are apparently considering Phil jones I am guessing only if tarkowski goes.

We need to sell all 3. Maguire and Lindelof seem first choice, then we have Bailly and Tuanzebe and now Mengi. That’s 8 for 2 positions. Even selling the 3 leaves us with 5 which is the right number in my opinion. The one thing we do lack is a left footed CB so that is what I would be looking for if the 3 were to leave and loan out Mengi.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 18:16:04
Rojo is left footed 😉.

Rojo is two footed when he tackles.

18 Sep 2020 19:24:05
The most logical thing for Jones is a loan move to a PL club with us paying the difference in wages.

He must have thought all his birthdays arrived at once when he signed that new contract.

ED002, if you don't mind answering this question, but who do you think would be the ideal viable RW option for Utd to sign?

Thanks in advance. Although I appreciate that you maybe wiling to answer this question for obvious reasons.

{Ed002's Note - Brooks, Douglas Costa, Bernardeschi, Sancho.}

From what I've seen, Brooks isn't a winger and I would choose Sancho, Costa, Bernardeschi over him in that order.

Brooks being injured last season ultimately cost Bournemouth their EPL status. He is by far their best and most creative player. Bournemouth were comfortable mid table with him in the starting 11 and then got relegated by 1 point with him out of the team through injury.

He isn't a "winger" in the traditional sense, he is a player who plays more like a wide No.10, he is creative and comes inside to work with the midfielders and forwards to create chances, he is clever at finding half a yard of space and using that to find teammates to create good chances.

In many ways he adds something different to what we have, we have Greenwood who'll cut inside to score, Dan James who can stay wide and stretch play what we need is someone who can come inside and create.

Sancho obviously offers that as well as goalscoring ability. But then that is what Sancho is £108m and Brooks would be around £40-50m.

Brooks offers us something different to what we have while being better than Lingard, Andreas Pereira and Mata.

If I'm honest if we can't sign Sancho then the best front three we could have going into this season would be Greenwood, Martial and Rashford. For me Greenwood is going to be a top top player, maybe not at the Messi and Ronaldo level but certainly at the Bale, Neymar, Lewandowski, Aguero and Hazard level. He is got 17 goals and 3 assists last season. His debut season in a struggling side. There are only a few players I'd be happy to see starting ahead of him, Sancho being one, Mbappe might be another. But that level of talent. Otherwise I'd want Greenwood starting.

With that in mind if we can't sign Sancho then what we should be looking for is a top level rotational option who adds quality in depth and something different to what we have.

Players like Brooks adds that. Others could be Calvin Stengs, Viktor Tsygankov, Moussa Diaby, Leon Bailey or Bryan Mbeumo.

Agree6 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - that was not the reason they got relegated. Not even close. There were far more problems than an injury to him.}

18 Sep 2020 10:08:45
Eric, James is predominantly a LW and one could see how out of sorts he was throughout the season when played on the other side. Promote a youngster simply stands for proscratinate the need for a RW for yet another season. Chong isn't ready for the PL yet. He is too lightweight and gets shoved off the ball too easy. United needs a Sancho and they need it now.

Sarr won't be a bad shout given that Shappy has scouted him for half the season and has suggested him several times. 😁.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 10:15:22
Coach Daniel James better Eric? Who's going to do that?

Agree0 0Disagree

i would take brooks as i think he is class. I would also take perisic or Ismailia sarr as i think they both would add to our front line.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 11:08:24
Shapps you forgot Buendia :)

Sancho's versatility will help us. When Rash needs to be rested, Sancho can play on the left and Greenwood on the right.

Similarly we can rotate Martial with Greenwood. It will give us so much quality options upfront.

Also while chasing a game, bringing someone on like Rash or Sancho or Greenwood from the bench can keep the attack firing without drop in terms of quality.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 11:17:48
Shan, Sarr would be a great option if we are looking for a player similar to Adama Traore but don't want to spend 70-80m on them. Quick, strong, direct, with improving end product. I wouldn't call either of them clever players, they are knock and run wingers who rely on their raw power and pace to blow players away. Then once clear they look for a cross or cut back, both tend to play lower crosses rather than high ones, or they look to cut back to an on rushing player. It's effective, but a little one dimensional. Similar to Dan James but with power as well as pace.

Personally I prefer the tricky clever players who find pockets of space and appear to ghost past people. While looking at that we have in our squad and the types of situations we find difficult to circumvent I think that sort of player suits our needs better. A technical dribbler, who plays with their head and not their physical attributes.

While Sarr would be a decent signing he would only add a more powerful version of Dan James.

Agree5 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 12:15:33
Saint maximin from Newcastle looks a decent player, I wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him.

Shappy come off it mate what you been smoking?

Say your right and brooks who is average, 23 years old has 39 games playing at the highest level in english football costs 50 million

Why wpuld we not pay the extra 58 million for a plauer who is on a different planet to brooks, someone called brooks class further up 😂😂

Are people on the wind up today? Saint maxima sar and brooks 😂😂.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 14:01:55
bolger, Sancho isn't just £58m more than Brooks, that's just the transfer fee, then there is Sancho's agents fees which are thought to be in the region of 50m. Plus Sancho would be looking for wages in the 280-300k per week.

So the total cost of Sancho on a 5 year deal would be 108m in transfer fee, 50m in agents fees and 72.8m in wages over 5 years at 280k per week. Making Sancho cost a total of around £230m over 5 years.

Whereas Brooks would be a maximum of 50m in fees, around 10m in agents fees, and wages of around 120k per week (31.2m over 5 years) . Making Brooks cost a total of 91m over 5 years.

That means Sancho would cost 139m more not just an extra 58m.

While Sancho is clearly the much better player, my argument is based around only spending a huge fee on a player who is clearly better than Greenwood currently. Sancho fits that bill. But if he isn't available then what we should be looking for is a top quality rotation option with Greenwood.

TrueRedDevil, I'd love Buendia, he'd be a great option in my opinion. But the club don't have an interest in him and there seemed little interest on here in him when I mentioned him.

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 15:04:13
sancho is available for 108 million, we haven't even tried bringing the fee down. make an offer, why have we been after the player for months and yet we haven't made an offer.

Dortmund always sell there best players, they are a selling club.

the fee is irrelevant if he plays the way he does for Dortmund and provides the numbers he does currently the money will look like peanuts in 3 or 4 years time.

and agent fees and wages are not the issue, multiple sources have said the issue is the fee.

but if we are going to waste time and then go for the likes of brooks and sar, imo is ridiculous.

greenwood is better than brooks and sar so we should stop wasting time and look at getting a cb and a striker in.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 15:11:09
Shappy, not only a powerful version of Dan James but also a version that plays RW. Would give an option of the bench when Greenwood isn't working out. Valencia used to be the same when he first came to us and he was massive before he was cursed with the #7.

As things stand we are starting the new season exactly where we finished last. Who does Ole turn to when your front line isn't working or your left full back has his annual injury or AWB is unable to cross. He still wouldn't have who he might "trust".

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 15:20:52
also to add how much you think the club will earn from shirt sales alone having Sancho number 7

if we sold the players that were no longer needed instead of blocking and pricing players out of moves put that to the fact we have saved around 50 million on wages with Sanchez now gone.

its really frustrating every window is the same.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 17:05:57
bolger, I believe the club has been in discussions, but buying players is a little more nuanced than picking up a can of beans from Tesco. The Eds have said the total cost of signing Sancho is huge and has caused other clubs to walk away from any deal.

The idea that he will continue the same numbers he is achieving in the Bundesliga is slightly foolish. Very few if any offensive players move from Germany to the EPL and maintain the same volume of goals/ assists as they managed in Germany. Some of the defending in the Bundesliga is awful which inflates offensive players numbers. Maybe Sancho would after a couple of years be able to get his number back up to his current level but I highly doubt it would be instant.

While shirt sales are irrelevant as the money goes to Adidas unless sold via the club shop. We get nada from shirt sales as Adidas has bought the rights.

I think a lot of your frustration comes from reading too much into what the media is saying on a daily basis. My advice is either stop reading it or read it but don't believe a single word of it. Most is just made up to sell papers and get clicks. No amount of reading these articles will hurry along any transfers. They will happen when they happen or they won't happen.

Shan, Sarr wouldn't be a bad signing and he would offer us another option. I wouldn't be against signing him. It's just a personal thing, I'd prefer a more technical player who offers us something different to what we have. I 100% agree that we need to sign someone, we can't go into the season with Lingard and Pereira being the options from the bench.

While I think Greenwood is good enough to play first choice and play most weeks, he is a young player and he will have dips in form. Therefore its vital to have a player who can come in for him and allow him a rest both physically and mentally. We saw Sir Alex do it a few times with DDG in his first couple of seasons with Lindegaard coming in for him for a few games here and there.

Regarding coaching - my guess would be one if the handsomely paid professional coaches at the club?

Regretably we did not, as I had been told, pretty reliably, Reguilon has apparently gone to Spurs. I don't like relaying info unless I trust it, despite this being a rumours site and I rarely post.

As I understand it Zidane had been absolute that he didn't want the player and wanted gim sold to generate funds. He also believes he has good enough options. The deal was all agreed, but then Perez via another director offered him to Spurs as they wanted the buy back and spurs took the bait.

Its a terrible deal and very short term. In effect Spurs have paid €30m during a C.V. with an ability for RM to buy anytime after summer 22 giving 3 months notice for €45m. So if Reguilon smashes it, Spurs must start from scratch in 2 years. Developed the player and get €15m in profit (less the cost of interest on funds to borrow) . If he bombs, Spurs have paid €7.5m per annum over his 4 year contract.

I do want to point out, that Utd walked away when the goalposts changed. They have done so several times in the past 2 years with 7 players they wanted where deals didn't meet the appetite of the club. There is only one exception to this. There is a possibility they also make an exception for Sancho, but this is less about the overall fee, but the type of triggers for add ons and the payment schedule. If those are negotiated the deal will happen, if not it won't.

I see a huge amount of criticism on here, which is natural as we would all love to treat it like Football Manager. But despite mistakes in the first 4 or 4 years, this group is settled into a focus and a plan and has learned a lot. They also are no longer driven by toxic fans in making their decisions.

Nothing they do will ever be seen as good enough. But for me anyway, we no longer sell even our unwanted on the cheap, a practice operated under Gill which only changed under Mourinho in year 1, and that too I applaud. Its about changing the perception of how and why we do transfer business in and out.

I hope you are right Cheshire. I hope we are going through the transition of learning and good results will follow in time. I only know what I read as I don’t have any connections in the game and negativity gets more press thank when something is going partly right. I am not too fussed about us walking away from a very overpriced player in Sancho, but hopefully the club have alternates lined up and are not backing themselves into a corner. Also, we should have done a lot of our business early. Hopefully we will become better at this sooner rather than later.

Cheshire they have had months to sort the above out with dortmund,


And we don't do tranfer business we try and mug teams off.

Woodward goes into a tranfer asking do they know who he is. The critisism of the club is justified the lack of footballing people doing the roles they should do is toxic.

If we had a club run the way it should by people who know what they are doing we wouldn't need to rant.

Which 7 players Cheshire Red?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 08:39:49
Do agree with you Cheshire to some extent: they’ve clearly got a plan which involves buying quality young players for the right amount (like other big clubs do) and not be taken for mugs again.

I believe they are planning for a title challenge in 2/ 3 years time, when Liverpool and City have passed their peaks, making sure they’re collecting class youngsters in preparation for that as well as blooding Unser 24s to step up such as Mengi, Hannibal, Garner, Shoretire etc. (I’m also hoping they get Benoit Badashille to add to this future team)

However in the meantime they need to stay in the top 4 which looks tougher given all other teams strengthening. They look short of quality squad depth and need options on the RW (I’d get Brooks and Sarr) as well as a CB (I’d go all out to get Upemecano now) plus the issue of selling unwanted players.

Tbh, I know they’re amateurs compared to the lady at Chelsea but they seem to have a plan. BUT they seem awful at getting rid of players who will never see the first team again and I think there’s a communication backlog in the management chain which prevents them acting quickly and decisively, thus a a D of F needed to grease the wheels.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 09:32:56
I don't understand why anyone praises the "not selling our unwanted on the cheap" policy.

Now, with a player like Lukaku, in the prime of his career and a very good player, who just doesn't fit our style, ok. You want to recoup as much as you can on one like this.

But players like Smalling etc? Totally different. Holding out for this marginally higher fee makes the club look greedy, incompetent, and like they have no respect for players who have given us most of their career.

We used to let these kind of players go fairly cheap. That was a GOOD policy. It let us move on players on large wages and get them off the wage bill. It also improved our image among players, because it told them that we valued their years of service.

Our current policy makes it look like we don't value the years of service, and it is costing us money, because we aren't getting a higher fee, we're just not getting anything while we continue to pay high wages to a player we don't want any more.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Sep 2020 11:11:15
In Reguilon's case, I really wanted us to sign him up.
But we are right to move on if Madrid wanted any sort of buy-back clause.

However, Romano did mention that United didn't meet Real's valuation of 30m.

Ed have utd shown any interest in sarr from watford at all? Thanks in advance.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Ismaila Sarr (RW/LW/F) has had a disrupted season after moving from Rennes and has become available with Watford being relegated and Wolves have enquired after him - wanting to be kept informed just in case Adama Traore is sold. Crystal Palace have him on their list of potential Wilfried Zaha replacements, but he is not their first choice, although they could turn to him if their first choice heads elsewhere. Liverpool are interested inasmuch as he is another player like Adama Traore that Klopp has had his timgue down the throat of, but whilst he would make a good replacement for Shaqiri condideration would need to be given to (a) would Sarr want to limit his playing time to that which Shaqiri gets, (b) he is not Home Grown, (c) he would block Harvey Elliott's progression, (d) he would cost £40M or thereabouts, and (e) like the last few players asked about, would depart for AFCON when it happens as he is Senegalese. I am not aware of any approach to Watford by Liverpool or Manchester United, but either club may have spoken with his agent. If Mane or Salah were to leave LIverpool, it makes a great deal more sense and would provide the funding. If Manchester United are done with Sancho it would be another option. Cristiano Giaretta (a strage choice) has arrived and it is unclear what his remit will be - and Watford don't need the cash so cannot be forced into a cheap sale.}

17 Sep 2020 08:40:13
Thanks ed.
Would Perisic be seen as a Sancho alternative, if Inter came in for Smalling with an offer including Perisic.

I personally think we shouldn't have dug our heels so deep with the Smalling to Roma deal. At least the window is still open and hopefully we facilitate deals for players on the fringe instead of digging our heels in too much.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If Perisic were to sign it gives a short term solution only.}

17 Sep 2020 09:06:13
I think Peresic would be successful In the PL and would continue our history of bringing in a player we looked at in previous windows and even under different managers!
Do I want him, not necessarily but If the Sancho deal is not happening we need to move to whatever the alternative is.
Positives would be that Greenwood's development would continue as I would expect him to see a lot of games. The money Peresic would cost would not prohibit other purchases so we may see another CM as well as LB and possibly even a CD.
Negative is I think this is the window for Sancho as if he has another good season other clubs will be in for him.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Sep 2020 09:31:36
The money involved in the Sancho deal is ridiculous. We are in the middle of a global C.V., economies are screwed. The club cannot justify £120m+ on one player anymore - fans slagging off the club for not recklessly spending are extremely naive. Those days are on hold I think until we are through it. The failure to sell fringe players for much needed revenue is an odd one though.

Put the deal on ice for next season and bring in a short term option or promote a youngster. Chong could have done that job in my opinion.

Agree3 0Disagree

@Eric, they better payup for Sancho now or in a few years you all will the decision to walk away, Halaand. A thing with very good players is that the fees are usually difficult to pay but over time you will be happy you did. He even an advantage in the EPL being English.
Again he may end up at your rival club in the premiership and then it's be rubbed on your face consistently.

Perisic is pretty much two footed. He is comfortable on both wings but he has played more on the left side. He used to play in the centre as well during his time in the bundesliga.

I think Perisic would be a good stop-gap for a year or 2 if we don't sign Sancho this year but still not give up all hope of signing him all together.

I am a big fan of Perisic and will not mind him joining us. However he is a LW who turns 32 in Feb. This is a stop gap solution if at all it is a solution for our RW problem even.

i have to agree with a few on here. I think Perisic would eb a fantastic addition. He is fast and is fairly stong so will adapt to the league well. He can play as a wingback as well which is really useful as we setup with a back 3 against the top 6 and it allows brandon to play on the opposite wing, again its better than having AWB there as his dribbling is not great at best. We will finally be in a position to haev two wingbacks playing on their natural side allowing us to put crosses in.

Would prefer to go for someone like Domenico Berardi.

Perisic has never played on the right. Played 90% of games in last 6 years on the left.

Would have taken him as well as first choice **RM before Ken said he played on the left most of the time. I think we need depth and he's just won the champions league, so has plenty of experience.

**Not sure Sancho is worth the amount quoted. We will have a lot of teams banking up against us like England did against Iceland and Sancho didn't pull any trees up. We will pay 120m euro+ for a unpolished frustrating young player if we are not careful.

It's ok staying he's a good stop gap but a good stop gap for who? Sancho will may not want to go United next season. If he carries on his form this season everyone will be trying to buy him next season. We may not even qualify for the Champions League. I don't get this obsession with "STOP GAP"

Sim, me too. If we can't sign Sancho fine. I'd be a little disappointed but I would be okay with it. But move on and sign another young player who could become that world class RW we are looking for.

The year Ronaldinho moved to Barcelona instead of us we moved for a young Ronaldo instead. The rest they say is history.

If we miss out on Sancho then so be it. But let's look for someone else and move on.

Why are we not looking at Ismalia Sarr as a back up to sancho.

Perisic is an ageing left winger who should be avoided at all costs. An absolute joke if we sign him.

Neres or Chiesa for me but not seen any links so doubt it.
