Still not sure that the sanchez deal is done. Fabregas is their no 1 target and they won't want to spend any kitty til that deal is done. They would then need to offload villa to fund the deal of Sanchez and at nearly 30 years old I can't see huge money being paid for him.

Even after all this there is still confirmed interest in Rossi and barca have had a bid rejected!

Also the fact that soriano is prepared to go in the deal means little. He is a B squad player and would be happy to go to ANY epidural team to be involved in first team duties...

Just my thoughts

According to the bookies we are big favourites to sign rodwell and nasri. Not bad. Anything other than Adam will do. Ronnie wants to come back imo but we could never afford him

ever increasing talk of a deal for Fellaini involving Wes Brown going to Everton emerging from Merseyside.

Moyes has to sell before he can bring in anymore players and Fellaini and Rodwell could well both be on their way to United.

Barca have agreed a deal for Sanchez 33m with jonathon soriano goin the other way looks like we are missing out on players now thanks fergie.but I think we should sign shaqiri and javi Martinez in the midfield if fergie is looking to the future wot do u think ed?

It has come to light in Spain that Sir Alex has made a bid for Affelay although he was only bought to Barca last season, Sir Alex is ready to pay £9m for his services.

But personally as he can play as a an attacking midfielder or on the wings, I think hes the perfect buy for Man United

Any thoughts Ed? {Ed004's Note - I don't and do not think he will be bought}

looks like sanchez is definitely joining barca with barca offering arsenal villa and 5mil for fabregas But will villa go?
this will leave them with 35mil which will be used for sanchez.
Manchester united are looking at n'zogbia and sneijder is definitely still on the cards!

My source tells me that these rumours relating to Obertan signing for Lille may in fact be the result of Hazard signing for United. Have to wait and see, but my source said a deal may be on the cards....


Not that im doubting you or your "source", i just find it quite funny that your "source" has only just told you about it since the Obertan story was on SSN, coincidence, i think not. Though i hope im wrong as i think Hazard is someone that we need.

de gea, young, and jones are all done deals..

we are planing a bid for Hazard on 20 million

Nasri is going to stay at Arsenal.

Sneijder can maybe come to the club, but then nani would go in the other direction.

Sanchez is not going to happen, neither is nasri. Sneijder is still a possibility! The other deals are already done, young, de gea and jones. With one other midfielder on the cards, which will be rodwell or diarra!

Man Utd are now only marginally off even odds to sign Jack Rodwell on - 11/10.

I would be ok with this because he is a good player.
BUT>>> Not the AM or Scholes replacement we need. He is also a barrier to the progression of Tunnicliffe, Pogba and Morrison, especially Tunnicliffe.

Good signing guys?

Believable = yes
Unbelievable = no

Alex Ferguson likely to step up his interest in Celtic's £10 million-rated Israeli midfielder Beram Kayal. Reports suggest John O'Shea could be used as a makeweight in any deal. {Ed007's Note - £7/8 million and O'Shea and you got a deal :-) we'll half the agents commission}

Looks like weve missed out on sanchez, sky have suspended betting on him joining barca and barca have offered villa to city/chelsea to finance the deal, sanchez will just take villas place in the team, berbatov to newcastle? brown to everton? o shea to spurs/villa? gibson to sunderland? nasri will saty with arsenal, modric will either stay with spurs of sign 4 chelsea... just hope we DONT turn our attention to charlie adam.

A few people have spotted Sneijder in and around The Bellagio in Vegas. He's been having pictures with some people in United shirts, obviously that doesn't mean anything, but they've asked him whether he's going to move to united and he's said "We'll see...probably". Crap source I know but it is something!

Believable13 Unbelievable11

i play football with a lad that is close friends with rio ferdinand and wes brown and according to him united are set to offer around 45 million + berbatov to arsenal for jack wilshire and kieran gibbs. Really cant see this happening but would love it to be true. do you think arsenal could be tempted with a deal like this? {Ed004's Note - Why Kieran Gibbs?}

Believable2 Unbelievable26

19 Jun 2011 13:19:32
Ed - any news on possible Eden Hazard interest? The chance of signing Xherdan Shaqiri sounds great, but i'm worried we'll miss out on Alexis Sanchez now with Villa being offered to Chelsea/City. I think Sanchez initially showed interest in Utd as he didn't want to sit on the bench at Barcelona but do you think if they shift Villa that he'll go there?

barca's transfer budget is £45 million so how can they buy sanchez for £30 mil and also make contact with arsenal to buy fabregas? maybe sanchez could be heading to manchester

Perhaps Barca aren't telling the truth to supress expectations of clubs who have players they are interested in. You don't really believe any club would come out and give an honest declaration how much they can spend do you?

19 Jun 2011 12:16:32
bit of information for you that indirectly affects us. Barca's main target is fabregas. Thats where they want to spend their transfer budget. In order to sign sanchez as well they need to sell hence the supposed offering of villa who sanchez would replace in the starting line up. That's why he's leaning towards them at the moment. Its a good wage package, for the european champions and guaranteed starts. We can't really match that but it depends on them selling villa. City will bid for him but would he go? Back to arsenal wenger doesn't want to sell unless he gets what he wants. Also he doesn't want to lose nasri in the same window. But nasri wants to see some ambition and may force the issue. But doubt they'd sell to us they'd prefer a foreign club. Wenger is also looking at signing ben drew.

GREAT !! ED dont you think we are desperate for some decent midfielders. nani is about the only half decent midfielder weve got.
