Calm down people sly have been more wrong than anyone on incomings at United this window. Now they have actually reported this about Barcelona I am more confident than ever we will sign him. They've got it completely wrong on the Fernandes deal saying it was all but done they chat a lot of nonsense. Got to ask yourself but the deal for Barcelona means loaning him out for 18 months he's 25 years old it seems a bit strange to do a deal like that to sign another player? I'm not convinced and think we will push on with a deal as this will give us a kick up the arse.

Sure Valencia in talks with Alcacer return on loan.

Selling Rodrigo and getting Fernando's would be great business for Valencia.

Then Barcelona get a 27 year old who is already equipped to play on league once loan finished.

Forget Fernandes what is our manager playing at?!

Mutiny is knocking at the door. Protests are planned for the weekend. We have a mountain to climb tomorrow night and Ole finally unveils his master plan.
Alexis Sanchez!

So we chase a player all summer then Barcelona come in with a few days left and swoop him.

The managers get sacked for not performing when do the transfer committee have there jobs on the line or do they get a free ride because it's so difficult?

I can't believe the club have allowed the team to become bare.

It just gets worse.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, I have explained what happened with him being offered to several other sides. There has not been any chasing, just simply no acceptable offer made.}

28 Jan 2020 16:27:25
It’s a pretty simple situation.

United want the player.
The player wanted to come.
Sporting open to selling.
United offered well below their valuation.
When it became apparent that United weren’t perpared to do a deal, he was offered to other clubs.

The only people who seem to be struggling with this are the United recruitment team and the English media.

If BF signs for Barca, or anyone else, its all down to Woody. He hasn't a clue about signing players and messes about while other clubs get on with it. Forget in Ole, you'll get nothing while Woody is there.

{Ed001's Note - it is not all down to him at all.}

Well ed001 whoever it is down to needs to go.

Whilst we as supporters may not be privy to the inner workings of Manchester United, from the outside it does look like the football side of the business is incredibly incompetent, with nobody seeming to want to take responsibility to sort it out.

There was a newspaper article during the week that stated we have five people doing different aspects of the DoF job. The article suggested that this is a positive!

But I think it underscores the issues we have with recruitment, too many chefs and a lack of overarching direction. I don’t think Woodward is directly responsible for transfer failings, I just think that the club’s internal structures mean there is no clear lines of direct responsibility for recruitment.

Whether he signs or not ( I personally couldn't care less anymore) has Bruno Fernandes surpassed Sneijder, Gaitin and Garay as the most farcical transfer rumour in recent history.

Who would have thought that Sneijder could have been topped.

Lets hope the Fernandes to Barcelona rumours are true because its plainly obvious we aren't getting him so next best thing is that it doesn't get rammed down our throats by joining one of our rivals.
He deserves to go to a team as good as barcelona were gonae regret this for a long time better believe it .

Looks like the writing is on the wall for Ole now. I feel bad for him because he hasn’t had the backing that a club like Manchester United should be giving managers. Nothing spent last January, minimal net spend in the summer once you consider outgoing players and nothing this January either.

To be clear, I never thought he was the right man for the job but if you’re going to keep a guy in the hot seat in spite of his clear lack of ability (this in itself is probably the most baffling part), the least you can do is support him in the market.

If the club don’t trust him going forward, he should either have been moved on already or at the very least his replacement should have already been lined up and be in a position to advise on what kind of player he’d like so that we can get them in and settled ready for next season (not to mention boost our slim chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League) .

Had the club already appointment somebody to oversee transfers (as they seem to have been talking about for years), the uncertainty over the manager’s future would have little impact on our transfer plans.

I don’t work in football and am sure there are many elements I don’t understand, but from the outside looking in, it seems as though the people in charge have about as much knowledge of how to run a football club than I do, if not less. Shambles.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 11:27:04
I'm hoping that we reach an agreement for Fernandes before the deadline, we need bodies in! I know Ed002 feels Cavani would be a big mistake, but surely a loan until end of the season would help us. He has quality and let's face it, we are hopeless. Slimani? C'mon! We are Man Utd last time I checked, so underwhelming and shows exactly where we are! So we couldn't get another couple like Dan James from the championship in? Each one of us could point out five obtainable players worth taking!

I see us signing nobody. Complete embarrassment.

Has ole really just insinuated alexis has a future with us?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 10:56:23
He's doing everything in his power to try and spin it that we have a plan for the future. The players will be better next season, Klopp got time and look at Liverpool now, Alexis will come back stronger. It's to deflect away from the here and now.

Agree3 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 11:03:43
That’s expected, he has flopped at Inter so we won’t have buyers and he isn’t going to give up his wages.

This press conference was the most predictable of the year so far: more injuries, Sanchez like a new signing next summer, hard to buy in January.

It’s obvious that the club hasn’t learned anything from the past few years, and it will all start again when Ole is sacked before the end of the season.

Not sure what else a united manager is meant to say about someone who is currently a united employee

Is uniteds manager meant to say no matter what he will never play for us? He is garbage?

If you want Sanchez gone do you big up the player and hope it sparks interest or belittle the player and hope other clubs think it's some bizarre reverse psychology?

Schnauzer1 - it is not what he said, but when he said it. Why now?

We need to get out of this current cycle and the only way to do that is hope that the Glazers sell the club to someone/ group that put footballing people in charge that know what they are doing and we start to invest in the infrastructure as well as the team/ squad.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 11:21:30
Could be honest and say he's not in our plans hence why he's out on loan and is free to join another club maybe?

Agree0 0Disagree

This club is a joke. Too many 🤡🤡🤡

I really don't know what to say anymore. It has gone beyond anything we have ever known in recent history.

At some point you all will see Ole for what he is. Sanchez shipped out as part of the great new plan last summer, the much heralded Solskjaer clear out. Now he says Alexis will prove everyone wrong. Nice clear plan isn’t it.
The club is an utter mess and having a former player with no clue what he is doing as manager will eventually be too apparent even for the Ole can do no wrong fans. Are there any left beyond Rosspique? The downward path continues.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 13:13:30
Pogthedog- I haven't seen the whole interview do you know how Sanchez became part of the interview? Was there a sanchez specific question?

DanJames you only realistically say a player isn't in your plans when there are offers on the table that the club is willing to accept for a player and you're trying to push them to accept.

If we haven't got offers the club are ready to accept saying he isn't in our plans is only going to reduce what other clubs offer and then we definitely will be stuck with sanchez next season.

Its the unfortunate politics of modern football management.

The problem is he wasn't asked about Alexis he brought it up himself and made himself look silly.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 14:08:01
You've almost managed to push them all away Redman. A few left hovering I suspect.

He has to try and get a tune out of this team and this squad. I'm sure he is voicing his concerns internally.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 14:26:13
So has Alexis finally found the right mentality.? isn't that what OGS said? Getting rid of those that had not got the right mentality.

Just as expected, ole's self preservation selections have claimed another victim. Matic is most likely out for the city game.

If cult members were to be believed, apparently it wasn't selfish but rather for the good of the club that ole picked a full strength squad, must be really helpful to the club to face city with 1 fit midfielder.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 14:34:54
If you believe Matic is the difference between overturning a 3-1 loss against City then respectfully you know nothing about football.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Jan 2020 16:24:42
That was never the point, but then again you think ole is our savior and doing a great job so no wonder you will deflect. This was what I was worried about looking at the team and have been proven right.

We lost pogba vs rochdale, rashford to a useless fa cup game, matic vs tranmere, when we don't have a squad to go the distance in more than 2 competitions.

Difference between a fit matic and injured matic is we will play the magnificent periera in a mf 2 vs city. Which is definitely not the way to overturning any lea.

Injuries happen, they happen in games against lower league sides in the the domestic cups, they happen in European cup matches and they happen in league games against both title challengers and relegation battling club's.

Players are passed for to play or not by the medical team.

The fact is that most players are carrying some kind of knock most of the time. Having spoken to a few professional footballers it's pretty common.
If a manager was to only pick players who didn't have some kind of knock they would be lucky to be able to name a starting 7 let alone a starting 11 and 7 subs.

If Rashford didn't pick up that knock against Wolves in the cup then he might have picked it up in the league, or the Europa League.
