Hello Ed002. Do you have information about Martial being available for transfer this summer? If yes, what are his options?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have shown no intention of selling him but his agent is unhappy with the situation and will see if there are options available - so nothing has changed.}

12 Jun 2021 10:44:32
A shame Martial never developed in the way I hoped after that first season. I thought there was some potential to become a very good player back then.

So much ability but no desire.

And sadly no footballing brain - If you are a defender and can match him stride for stride what else has he got? Not bad at dribbling, butnot great in the air, will he out smart you in the box, or out muscle you or press you into a mistake, pop up where you don't expect him - . no, very rarely will he do any of that, and then when you tackle him a few times and he can't get the better of you after 60 minutes his head drops . A real shame.

He had a spell at the end of last season, but for me has never looked as promising as on his debut, when I believe he scored a cracker vs Liverpool. Just never looks up for it.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 19:13:24
Forgive me being naive but what can his agent be unhappy about? He’s really well paid in the squad, has got his No9 Shirt back and played up front all’s Eason until it was proven he want actually a very good striker?

If he or Martial have an issue then good riddance.

Agree3 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 22:02:21
Real Madrid online with an option to buy seems to the rumours. probably from his agent.

A good loan to bump his value or refresh him would be good idea.

Then Viva Ronaldo for one last dance.

While I agree that Martial isn't good enough to be first choice, I'm a little surprised at how quickly everyone wants to boot him out the door.

I mean if we got rid of every player who wasn't good enough to be first choice for us then at no point in our history would we ever have had more than about 14-16 players in our first team squad at most.

Martial doesn't lack for talent, he's quick, has good feet, great technique, can dribble, can link play and is probably only behind Greenwood at our club in terms of how clinical he is in front of goal.

He only has two issues, the first is he picks up a few niggling injuries across a season which can make it hard to maintain momentum when you're in and out of the side. However, the biggest issue he has is his mentality. He doesn't cope well when under pressure for his starting spot.

All that said, there is absolutely no point throwing him out the club while he offers a good squad option.

Rashford is best played on the left, while Greenwood is developing. My gut says Greenwood will eventually move centrally, maybe sooner rather than later. Yet currently he will share his time between RW and CF. That leaves a 34 year old Cavani as our first (and best) choice centrally. Cavani however does struggle with fitness and injury and that isn't likely to improve next season.

Martial offers good coverage for Cavani up top and Rashford on the left.

If we sign Sancho (which looks likely) then what looks stronger for us next season:

Rashford, Martial, Cavani, Greenwood, Sancho.

Or

Rashford, James, Cavani, Greenwood, Sancho.

I mean if someone comes along and makes a good offer for him then sell him and move on. But let's not try and force a good if not great player out the door for little reason.

When Tony was bought I had hoped for a Thierry Henry type in the making. he's been only good in spots but and he's no talisman and we need a leader up front too. This isn't a knee jerk reaction. Four or five years these questions have been asked. His on field body language is in stark contrast to Cavani - which is the standard he's aiming for. For me he doesn't even tick the box of "impact sub" because he's just not the bustling, harrying type to come on and unsettle opposition defenders. His standard at the minute is as an expensive sub - I'd hoped for so much more.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jun 2021 12:08:41
Shappy the point is he thinks he should be the first name on the team. He simply doesn’t warrant that. He’s been here long enough now but still hasn’t put together a run of form for long enough to be unstoppable. We have decent squad players as it is, we won’t miss him too much. He’s had plenty of strikers to learn from but I still see not much improvement since we bought him.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 11:15:43
Apparently we have now reached an agreement with sancho and have made an opening bid. according to various sources it's too low and won't be accepted but talks are happening. Hopefully we get this done and it doesn't end up like last year 🤦‍♂️.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

10 Jun 2021 11:36:13
Seems like it might be further than last year already to be honest, our opening bid seems reasonable for a negotiation to me, hopefully meet somewhere in the middle. He isn’t worth what we are paying but who is these days? He improves the team and that’s what matters.

Agree2 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 11:51:21
Totally agree, need to get this one done and get on to improving in other areas…going to be difficult with the euros on though as we aren’t exactly efficient or swift negotiators 🤣 Quick question to the Ed’s, are we back to a normal transfer window now? Ie it ends 31st August? Thanks 👍.

BBC reporting that we have made a 67.5 million bid that has been rejected. Dortkund have refused saying they want 77 million and 4.25 million on top.

Two things stroke me about this, didn't we learn Dortmund last year set a valuation and you either meet it or forego the transfer and who is briefing the press about such details. Assuming it is us, I don't really like this way of operating strikes me as pretty classless.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 18:28:14
It's what us british are know best for we like to haggle. We will pay what they want but why not try and save a few quid in the meantime. If I'm being honest I can't see many teams bidding, I personally think he's a bit over rated and should go for raphina who would be a better option and value for money. He's a good player but the cost involved are massive. We should be looking at the guy they will replace him with as dvd seem to do well with buying and selling.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 18:38:30
Negotiating is how business works, it’s not classless. We aren’t far away from what they want, if the story is to be believed it sounds like we will be back with another offer soon and should get it over the line finally.

10 Jun 2021 18:39:25
Oakbark,

If you wanted to buy my car and thought it was worth £5000 but I said I’ll accept nothing less than £10,000 would you pay up or try and negotiate?

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 19:14:31
Dortmund are notorious for setting an asking price and not budging. We have offered £67 million when they wanted £77 million. Will we now waste the summer arguing over £10 million, which is the equivalent of Phil Jones medical bill.

10 Jun 2021 18:46:18
Ed, are you able to confirm whether the situation has progressed today?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - According to his agent, no.}

10 Jun 2021 19:37:15
Apologies I pressed send too early.

As I said my classless didn't refer too negotiations, that is part of it.

My reference was entirely to us yet again deciding to come out and post am unofficial message over the negotiations via Simon Stone of the BBC. I don't like this way of doing business I would prefer us to do our negotiations behind closed doors and not start speaking of it appease fans most likely. I just don't like this way of operating, in the past I don't remember us doing this. I don't see City or Chelsea operating in this manner.

As for the negotiations itself, Dortmund have clearly shown they set a price and we either pay it or walk away. We went through this last summer again briefing Mr Stone over the same issue. It makes us look unprofessional highlighting the exact same problem publicly again in my opinion.

11 Jun 2021 11:28:37
still unsure on sancho money mooted after we spent on amad and pellustri as well as having greenwood?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - even if all the clauses were met in the Diallo and Pellestri deals, we would still have a lower monetary outlay on those two than on the "additional" /agents fee in Sancho deal. I hope we don't bow down to the demands of Sancho's agents or it will set a very bad precedent IMO.

11 Jun 2021 17:59:37
ED077 - I think we have already passed that mate with other deals ie., mr pogba.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - then we should learn from our previous experiences}

13 Jun 2021 13:06:30
Dortmund are in a strong position. They actually don't need to sell anyone . I think we would be better off going for Traore and Neves from Wolves who are also available rather than wasting another window pursuing Sancho.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Jun 2021 12:58:40
Hi ed002, hope you are well?

Quick question about Diogo Dalot. Looks like the club are happy to sell him and with Mourinho taking over at Roma, do you see Roma becoming interested in signing him?

Obviously, Mourinho was the manager that brought him to United and you've mentioned in the past he was of interest when Mourinho was at Spurs.

Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Diogo Dalot (RB/LB) Milan want a cheap deal or another loan if they can but it will depend on Manchester United adding a replacement as cover. Milan have other options they are considering and want an early answer. I expect he will leave in the summer. No interest from Roma who have other plans.}

09 Jun 2021 15:32:26
Cheers ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Jun 2021 22:10:42
Smart move by the board to let a player who might be a potential regular Portugal fullback who can play both fullback positions, and is on lower wages and would be a good no2.
Didn't city sign somewhat similar play in cancelo for 2-3 times he's worth?
Our board and their stupid decision making.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 06:58:40
rohanarora8, and probably Ole doesn't rate him either.

Maybe it's a lot more fun throwing money around at other clubs and agents to sign their players and then struggle to sell the same players in a few years time.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 08:15:41
He is not that good defensively that's why we are selling him. Check out euro 21 semifinal, single handedly gave the other team a chance for a comeback. Made 2 errors leading to goals when in fact he was one of the most experienced player in the squad.

Agree3 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 09:49:32
Dalot might be able to play both the fullback positions, but he's average at best at both. I doubt comparing Cancelo with Dalot is fair, as the former is (as much as it hurts me to say) a much better player than Dalot.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Jun 2021 12:45:30
To the brilliant Ed002, a while back you mentioned that if United wanted to sign Sancho, they would need to press ahead with agreeing a deal before the Summer (potentially Euros? ) . Had the club made any progress on this front?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There are discussions going on with Dortmund but the club need to overcome the issues of additional costs.}

08 Jun 2021 12:56:20
Thanks Ed, really appreciate your time.
Have prices been agreed and now it is a matter of over what period the various additional bits are paid?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No it is nothing like that.}

08 Jun 2021 13:56:41
Thanks for the reply Ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Jun 2021 15:38:00
i think it might just get done this deal this time round.

maybe Dortmund want to see how well he does in the euros they can ask for that bit extra if he shines.

would be nice to get deals done before then but its unlikely

just hope this doesn't drag on all summer and we focus just on sancho

we still need a cb and a cm while also offloading

the men behind the scenes need to be ruthless this window.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have explained - Dortmund want transfers, in and out, addressed as soon as possible.}

08 Jun 2021 17:14:30
Its usually at this stage that Dortmund ask for a fee and United offer to pay a portion of the fee with the rest being made up of payments made when United win trophies. As United's trophy haul has been limited of late, Dortmund want the cash up front.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Jun 2021 20:37:08
Ed would this seemingly be related to the fees demanded by the "agent" of Sancho, from both Dortmund and United since he is seemingly the go between?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, and some other costs.}

08 Jun 2021 21:11:41
Thanks for the answer. The fee Dortmund want seems much more reasonable. I know you don't like to speculate, does this issue seem like something United can resolve?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Sure if they pay up - the other clubs his agent has been talking to are not going

08 Jun 2021 21:19:41
Right, that makes sense. Sounds like Chelsea have no interest in paying those extra costs, per what you've said prior. I hope United do it now, it's surely cheaper overall than last summer, but with this club.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Jun 2021 10:16:55
Chelsea currently have Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Werner and Mount who are either all comfortable or best suited to playing in the wide forward areas.

With 6 players for 2 starting spots I really don't see why they would be interested in spending a sizeable amount on a player Like Sancho.

Surely with Giroud (not a long term option), Abrahams (not good enough) and Werner (looks more suited to playing wide left) as striker options then it is a centre forward they really need.

While another top class CB wouldn't go amiss.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You have listed several players who will be leaving.}

09 Jun 2021 10:17:33

07 Jun 2021 16:35:02
Just a rumour but a delivery driver from Brighton I've chatted to today, season ticket holder, suggests Ole is looking at striking a deal for Ben White before his price potentially rises if he has a good Euro's?

Believable4 1Unbelievable

07 Jun 2021 16:55:03
That's where we make the mistakes. We wait till the price of a player goes through the roof. We could buy a player for 30 mil. Na let's wait till he is 75mil. We will pay u 300 grand a week and give u a 7 year contract.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - We have shown some level of interest in him..}

07 Jun 2021 18:09:22
Re Ben White, he could be perfect alongside Maguire.
He reads game well and is quite fast. He could do better aerially though.
Problem is that as soon we make our interest known, Brighton will hike up the price.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jun 2021 18:22:31
We could have an English summer, signing Sancho for RW, Trippier for RB, Rice for CDM and White for CB.

Apparently Maguire wanted more English speaking players.

Could potentially have Henderson, Trippier, White, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Garner, Sancho, Lingard, Rashford, Greenwood as our all English starting 11.

With Grant, AWB, Williams, Mengi, Tuanzebe, Galbraith and Shoretire on the bench.

I mean it wouldn't be a great United side, but we would have at least fully embraced Brexit.

Agree9 0Disagree

Afternoon folks
just read a number of (clickbait? ) articles that we have put a €45m bid on the table to atalanta for a guy Romero? Any substance? can't say I've much except he is an option to buy cb from juve .

Believable0 0Unbelievable

04 Jun 2021 14:13:27
He is one we are supposedly looking at long with Varane, Pau Torres, Kounde, Botman and Ben White.

He has been arguably the best CB is Serie A this season. He would be a difficult one to judge. Atalanta are far and away the most offensive side in Serie A. Which means the majority of the time his team are on the front foot, which means he is tested less often defensively. Conversely though because Atalanta are so attacking when he is tested he often had less support or protection.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - If I'm not mistaken Juventus own him right now..}

04 Jun 2021 14:23:54
Tom Heaton
Kieran Trippier
Pau Torres
Jadon Sancho

Another goalie if DdG or Deano leave. Pogba to stay.

My tips for the summer, so no doubt I will be completely wrong on all counts lol.

Cheers guys- was a new name to me so thought I'd ask on here. Cheers Shappy for the insight. Good bit of business if it comes off for atalanta= buy at 16 almost triple your money and don't even have to get his name plate for car parking space!

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 19:51:51
I don't think we will buy a central defender. I knows that's going against all the rumours but my gut is Sancho, Trippier, Midfielder.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 20:49:53
Could we be looking at 2 new CBs or is this just spreading out net wide and see who bites.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 21:49:22
I think a defensive midfielder is the position we need to fill the most. Fred, McT, Donny and Pogba are all more suited to a number 8 role alongside a defensive partner and are all being held back by having to cover those defensive duties between them.

A striker would be nice this season, but we at least have Cavani, so not signing one now isn’t the end of the world.

Similarly, we could really benefit from adding a RW, especially a creative one who offers something different from the paces inside-forward types we currently have out wide. However, if we have to make do with Greenwood as first choice on the right again… not the worst thing in the world.

CB and CDM though, are absolutely essential IMO.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Jun 2021 02:09:49
The hype about Trippier is he’s just won La Liga and might be happy to be a rotation RB for a minimal fee. He’s a very solid player who would help our squad without busting the bank. Not every signing can be a worldie. Although of course we need a couple of worldies as well.

Agree9 0Disagree

06 Jun 2021 12:20:38
Yh tripper is being brought in as a squad player to rotate with AWB.

There doesn't need to be any hype, just needs to be better than williams and dalot, which he is.

Agree2 1Disagree

06 Jun 2021 13:14:40
Seems a bit if a waste to me this. Get Dalit back, and make it clear he has to improve and challenge AWB for a startling spot. Units he’s so far behind quality wise? Not sure as not seen him play much being in Italy.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jun 2021 14:31:46
Why isn’t Laird being considered as cover/ competition for Wan-Bissaka? especially if the reason for trippier isn’t he’s more attacking then Wan-Bissaka. I get Trippier is more experienced but I’d be promoting Laird and giving him a few games over preseason and then throughout the season. Don’t see why we’d pay money for a RB. That money would be better off else where.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jun 2021 14:54:21
Ports, ordinarily I'd advocate promoting a youth player over signing an older player. While Laird looks to have the ability to be a genuinely top class player. However, I do think Laird needs at least another year on loan, probably in the Championship. The lad has 24 League 1 games under his belt. While he has had a few injury issues previously.

While you could also argue that our squad lacks a little experience. AWB is a talent but still has lots to learn. Having a player who has played at the top level both domestically and internationally, as well as having just won a league title against the odds. He will have loads of knowledge and experience he can impart on our defence.

With potentially a couple of older more experienced players leaving having an old head who also won't block the pathway long term could be a good deal.

Agree6 0Disagree

06 Jun 2021 22:59:59
Wouldn't Tripper transfer depends on what happens with Dalot. Feel like it goes hand in hand. Think we should sell Dalot. He a wing back that more suited aboard. I can see Milan buying him or a Spanish team picking him up.

Morning all.
Wondering if any of the EDs can shed any light on Martial leaving this summer please?
For me, he seems the obvious saleable asset to bring in some much needed funds for the essential minimum of four purchases we require this summer.
Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There are no plans to sell him.}

04 Jun 2021 09:30:52
I'd imagine players like Pogba and even DDG would be ahead of Avram's favourite player in line for the exit door.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 10:16:11
If the plan is to keep him, I just don’t understand where he fits in. OGS is obsessed with either Rashford or Pogba on the left, it seems almost certain that Sancho will come in on the right, where Greenwood and the ever-impressive when given the chance Diallo are also good options. Cavani certain to start the big games up top, with Greenwood and Rashford other options through the middle. That’s without mentioning James, Elanga, Shoretire.
Where does Martial play?

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 11:43:43
i expect pogba to leave this summer unless Ole wants to shoe-horn him into midfield of play alongside bruno with a CDM like rice / saul in midfield. so we will have martial, rashford, cavani, greenwood, sancho and james as our forward line options - pretty decent if you ask me.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 13:49:48
He is only obsessed with Pogba/ Rash on the left as Martial is unfit a lot. When fit he starts there regularly.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 14:17:56
While I don't think Martial is going to prove good enough to be a long term first choice option. He is still far above any of our other sub options.

If we sign someone like Sancho then our front four will be Bruno, Rashford, Sancho and Cavani.

Greenwood will be the first choice as an attacking sub either wide right or up top.

That leaves Martial, James, Diallo, Pellistri, and Hannibal as other options assuming Mata, Lingard and Andreas Pereira leave this summer.

Most of them are kids with little experience. Considering Cavani will likely pick up several injuries next season it makes little sense to sell Martial.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - Martial is on a lot of money to not even be the first choice attacking sub.}

04 Jun 2021 15:16:15
I can't see anyone stumping up the cash for Martial nor paying his wages. So I don't think he leaves sadly. I would much rather seeing his playing time given to one of the youngsters coming through.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 20:19:00
Martial has been bang average for 80% of his 5 seasons with us. He's not consistent enough. Clearly has talent but its nothing without consistent application.

One of the Eds noted on the City page that United were looking at Kane back in March. That may have cooled now that Cavani has signed but there is 1 or 2 years tops there and likely Edi plays what, 30 of our potential 60 games next season?

We do need another striker but it absolutely is not Martial.

I know it's a pipe dream but Martial + Lingard + cash for Kane would solve 3 problems in one hit!

Dear Baby Jesus .

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 21:59:06
Unlike many, I like Martial, and if we didn’t also have Rashford, I’d want to see him kept as LW. However, we do have Rashford at LW, and sadly I don’t think Martial is going to learn the movement and positioning need as a CF, or at least not soon enough to take over from Cavani.

We can’t afford to wait another 2-3 years for him to learn, we need a CF good enough to take over from Cavani by next summer, and right now, Greenwood looks closer to being ready than Martial does.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jun 2021 19:35:11
Evening Ed,

If you have time.

Been reading a few more murmurs of Trippier being a strong possibility. Any update on that?

Also been reading that there may be a De Gea + cash for Oblak situation on the table but that depends on Henderson been sold. Does this have any validity?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Keiran Trippier (RB) Atletico will sell. They are likely hoping for Everton interest as well as Manchester United but that may have left with CA.

Jan Oblak (G) PSG will offer an option if available.}

Thanks a lot for that Ed. Much appreciated.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2021 09:04:10
Trippier would be excellent for us.
For those games where we play against a 5-4-1 and rely completely on Bruno or Pogba to do something special, Trippier’s delivery would be invaluable.
No brainer IMO.

Solid EPL proven RB who is quick, works hard and has an excellent cross on him. At 30 years old he'll offer a great rotation option with AWB for a couple of years. While with a bit of luck AWB might learn some of Trippier's attacking traits and improve his all round game.

2 months ago you posted this shappy changed your mind again again again again again?
Secondly, I find signing a RB frankly ridiculous in itself. In the past 4 years we have spent 20m on Dalot and 50m on AWB both primarily RB's. We also have Williams who is naturally a RB and Ethan Laird who is doing very well on loan.

Why spend money on a RB who isn't better than AWB when we have Dalot, Williams and Laird already at the club who fulfil that role?

I just think its madness and further proof of how poorly run we are as a club.

I think Trippier is a good option to be fair. Prem proven with Spurs and Burnley before that. Much more attacking edge than AWB so gives a different option. I think if Dalot was going to stay we would have know about it by now. He was a Mourinho buy when clearly we prioritised the wrong 'young Portuguese defender' when you consider we were linked with Ruben Dias around same time period. Another great CB option we let go to a rival!

The first question is how we spent £50m on AWB if he doesn’t fully meet with what Ole wanted? 2. Why can his attacking not be improved by coaching? 3. Dalot was one of the most highly thought of young right fullbacks in Europe, how did we not coach him better? 4. Williams has the United DNA and all that, would accept being back up, so why ignore him? 5. Laird.

So great idea to spend our money and buy another right back. Lastly, is Trippier one of the 3 main purchases? Trippier, Heaton and who is the last?
