To the editors, who are the club looking at as options for the positions of RB and RW?
Thank you!

{Ed002's Note - It may well depend on whether or not the club can sell Diogo Dalot, but ideally they would like Max Aarons at RB - but I suspect he would not be keen and would prefer a move to Everton or Arsenal if Bellerin leaves or Spurs if Aurier can be sold. For RW it is unclear if Manchester United will follow up on the huge embarrassment of last year with Jadon Sancho or if they will look to the likes of Leon Bailey, Dembele, Sarr or others they have looked at. They are not one of the clubs actively pushing for early transfer agreements right now and may have decided the two youngsters added last year may just be OK for them.}

Ed, is it looking like Dortmund may struggle to move Sancho on again this summer? Between C.V. strangling finances, agents fees and a supposed lack of interest from the top clubs could he run into his final year?

{Ed002's Note - Jadon Sancho (RW) Manchester United messed everybody around last year and he has again been offered elsewhere to those who had previously enquired, but they are still not interested. If Manchester United want him they are going to have to agree a deal before the summer. I would not be surprised to see interest from Liverpool but they have financial issues which could impact any offer.

His contract is not up in 2022.}

17 Apr 2021 13:03:21
Thanks Ed002! Max Aarons - still a Norwich departure even if promoted this season?

{Ed002's Note - There are a number of interested sides so perhaps.}

17 Apr 2021 13:59:40
Thanks again.

17 Apr 2021 17:20:07
Max Aarons is a good player and being so young he should still improve quite considerably. If he has any sense he shouldn't join us though.

AWB is first choice and you'd think he would end up a lot like Telles, playing in the odd league game but mostly relegated to playing in cup competitions or weaker opponents. If he moves to Everton or Arsenal he'd be first choice and would likely end up a better player in the long run.

17 Apr 2021 23:39:45
Because if he’s that good and if he thinks he’s that good himself, he’ll join and win that position as his own and leave less talented players to join clubs not as big as Man Utd.

18 Apr 2021 00:03:41
Trippier makes a lot of sense as cover and someone to bridge time while laird develops or not.

18 Apr 2021 13:34:23
At the time when we signed AWB I said on here that I thought Max Aarons would be a better fit for us.

He suits a side that will have the majority of possession and needs their full backs to get involved in the attacks.

I think AWB is a great player with huge potential. Just always felt his biggest strengths come when defending, which isn't something a full back should be doing too much of at a top club.

I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if we signed Aarons that within 18 months he would be first choice and AWB would be reduced to a back up role.

19 Apr 2021 13:54:23
I cannot see us buying a right winger this summer. First choice Greenwood and have plenty of back-up Rashford, Amad, James.
3 signings RB, CD, CF.

19 Apr 2021 15:07:17
We MAY just have dodged a sancho bullet by messing them around last season, so not every mess is necessarily bad news :P.

16 Apr 2021 22:44:21
How about Ricarlison as a transfer target? Is the jury still out?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2021 09:08:42
A no ta from me.

17 Apr 2021 09:40:13
I thought Richarlison liked to play as a striker type and will cut in from the right in the same way that Rashford does it from the right?

17 Apr 2021 09:48:18
Richarlison is one of those players a little like Nani, clearly hugely talented, but seems to struggle to consistently play to his ability.

Just as capable of having a 5 out of 10 performance as they are a 10 out of 10 performance.

I like him, he has a really competitive attitude, but unless he can turn the talent into consistent performances then he is in no way worth the 70m+ that Everton would demand for him.

17 Apr 2021 10:15:41
He be ideal for Barcelona. Think he be a squad player at United.

17 Apr 2021 11:43:41
Works harder than martial but doesn't have quite the same ability imo.

17 Apr 2021 11:43:41
Works harder than martial but doesn't have quite the same ability imo.

17 Apr 2021 11:57:18
Clearly Everton value him, in fact want to build a team around him, after rejecting (a somewhat surprising) £100m wasn't it? Think that raised a few eyebrows, I'd have bitten their hand off.

17 Apr 2021 12:19:27
You can say that again Ken😂.

17 Apr 2021 12:52:34
Where is this ability Martial has that everyone keeps referring too lol? A completely underwhelming player in my view who is in the wrong league.

17 Apr 2021 22:04:34
Not good enough. We need a striker guaranteeing 20+ goals a season. Also has to be one who leads the line like Cavani.

15 Apr 2021 16:54:43
Dont shoot the messenger but apparantly we a few are reporting we are in advanced talks for Varane.

Ed you mentioned we might look for an experienced striker to replace Cavani, has Ciro Immobile been looked at? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2021 01:25:19
Thanks Ed.

15 Apr 2021 16:28:00
Question to Ed002 if you could be so kind;
de ligt at juve was reportedly looked at by the club when he went to italy but I haven't heard many glowing reports since. Could he be of interest to man utd and vice versa.

{Ed002's Note - There remains a chance of a move this summer but Manchester United certainly won’t be involved in any discussions.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2021 11:46:50
cheers ed002- could be wrong but the amateurish behaviour of united might hinder the possibility of a number of players from coming in. Have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

16 Apr 2021 20:09:13
Or maybe the club just aren’t interested in him.

13 Apr 2021 20:00:29
Hi Ed002,
With Eric Bailly's contract expiring next year, what are United's plan for him?
And are there any interest in Phil Jones?

{Ed002's Note - The club still want Bailey to stay but he will look for other options this summer. Jones would need to drop down a division to find interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2021 09:44:12
I find it sad that Jones would need to drop down a division, when fit I think he is comfortably a mid table EPL player. I do wonder where his career will take him next, he is on massive wages, even more so for a Championship club.

I guess with Jones where will always be a feeling of what might have been had he not picked up so many injuries.

{Ed002's Note - He should stay at Manchester United then.}

14 Apr 2021 10:11:21
Boy did SFA get that one wrong. At the time Jones was playing as CDM for Blackburn and was seen as a future Man Utd and England captain. What went wrong?
Not the first time SFA was wrong either. Bebe, potentially the greatest player on earth. Unless you subscribe to the notion that every player is potentially the best player on earth, at some point.

14 Apr 2021 10:24:52
Ed002, at 29 with another 2 years left n his deal I do wonder what is in it for him if he were to move away.

He'd almost certainly be on lower wages, would probably be injured and unable to play just as often, and like you suggest probably at a team in a lower division.

Hardly inspiring reasons to quit United.

Might as well sit tight take his wages and leave on a free in 2023, unless the amateurs activate the one year extension clause then he'd get an extra years wages for nothing more than keeping the physio busy.

{Ed002's Note - Players are not all mercenaries. Most want to play as much as they can and the likes of Middlesboro or Derby might offer a good solution.}

14 Apr 2021 20:36:09
No matter where he goes he can't stay fit. May as well stay, get his wages and play in the carabao cup.

14 Apr 2021 22:51:06
Inter Miami with Ryan Shawcross.

16 Apr 2021 10:40:23
In an ideal world Bailley would stay but if we are looking to bring in an additional CB then I think we should sell and generate some revenue. When he plays he offers that additional piece that Maguire lacks, however it appears that OGS does not have enough faith in him so it would be a waste to keep him.
A return to Spain could be a good move for him.
On Jones, another that appears to have had a career ruined by injuries. He never really kicked on from those first few seasons but showed bursts of what he could do (even in the HM role) . If he can get clear of injury a loan season to the championship would be the best considering no one would buy him or likely even loan him in the PL. Should he be able to show he can last a season and perfom we may be in a position like with Lingard where the asset is greater after the loan and could get a buyer then. If not then maybe buy out his contract and free up a space on the books.

18 Apr 2021 08:08:54
Bailly needs to leave. Never fit and never going to be good enough as he can’t string 5 games together.

Give Tuanzebe a bigger role and replace Jones and Bailly.

27 Apr 2021 14:15:45
Tuanzebe has not been fit for 3 years either.

{Ed077's Note - he has been an ever-present in the matchday squads this season. He has missed only 6 games due to injury and on 5 occasions not been part of the squad (whilst still fit). But I dont trust his ability to stay fit playing twice a week.}

11 Apr 2021 00:28:13
Ruben Neves rumours surfaced again. jury out on him. Never really pushed on from his younger days but maybe time to leave Wolves. Personally like him. Better than Fred by a country mile.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Apr 2021 01:06:57
Would be a good signing.
I don't think we want or need a kante type but more a ball player.

Rice would be good but expensive, Neves makes a lot sense.

11 Apr 2021 10:59:30
Anyone who gives the ball away less than Fred is an upgrade. I like Neves. Rice seems a more obvious choice with possibility of involving Lingard to reduce the fee paid.

11 Apr 2021 13:33:00
Good player, would be an improvement on players we have in that position already. Not what we need at the minute.

Would only want him after other more important positions have been filled.

11 Apr 2021 19:40:05
Rice for me. Young, English, having a great season.

12 Apr 2021 07:56:28
Only rice? No curry?

{Ed077's Note - which curry rohan?}

12 Apr 2021 15:36:55
Arthur Curry the Aquaman, would help us with diving in the European games for play acting.

12 Apr 2021 22:37:20
I like Neves, not sure he's what we need though. IMO we need a modern equivalent to Carrick, who can block passing lanes and slow attacks long enough for us to get players back.

That would let us use players like Pogba or DVB more effectively in midfield, because they would have more freedom to push high up the pitch.

At the moment, we regularly see comments moaning about Ole using 2 holding midfielders, but the truth is we don't HAVE 2 holding midfielders. Fred and McT both want to run around, chasing the ball and pressuring people, but that forces their partner to hang back, which stops Pogba or DVB doing what they do best. We need someone with more positional discipline.

12 Apr 2021 22:59:49
Neves no where near Man Utd quality. Used to be good for a goal but haven't seen him score in ages. Not a great passer and doesn't look that quick. Absolutely no truth in this rumour.

13 Apr 2021 14:48:34
Agree with jgb. Not good enough. doesn't stand out in an average Wolves team.

14 Apr 2021 01:10:45
I’ve always thought the same about Neves, when I’ve seen him play against our midfield he hasn’t stood out as better than then or even as good.

Whilst I tend to think judging a DM on ‘scoring a few good goals’ is not ideal I think he’s overrated because of this and people think he’s better than he actually is because he’s scored a few worldies.

07 Apr 2021 11:43:01
Question for Ed002, if you're around.

You mentioned recently that we may look to a more experienced striker like Benzema this summer as a stop gap of sorts and I was wondering if Aguero may be an option in that regard.

Reports today are suggesting that he wants to stay in the Premier League and would consider offers from Chelsea or Spurs. I'm aware of the animosity between United and City, but surely we could afford to pay more than either club, can all buy guarantee Champion's League football next season and our Manchester location means that he wouldn't have to relocate his family half way across the country.

Have we or he expressed any interest in making a deal?

{Ed002's Note - No, Aguero won't be moving to Manchester United.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2021 13:53:37
Shame, Aguero and DDG are good friends and he would have been a nice stop gap for us.

07 Apr 2021 15:27:51
There is a good chance neither of them will be in Manchester come the start of next season.

07 Apr 2021 20:07:32
I wouldn't be surprised to see both back in Spain next year. If DDG does want to go, let's hope we don't make the same mistake as we did with Romero.

07 Apr 2021 21:48:59
Romero is very handsomely paid to sit on a bench every week.

08 Apr 2021 15:35:08
Still got that sinking feeling that Giroud is a candidate in this area. A scorer of great goals, but not a great scorer of goals, and you get the feeling Tuchel will be bringing in his own CF this summer (maybe Aguerro) .

{Ed077's Note - Giroud isnt a bad player for me. He would be a decent back up option but I am starting to think we need a starting ST.

Aguero to Chelsea? Improbable IMO.}

07 Apr 2021 11:37:02

Have Utd shown any interest in Vazquez from RM?

If they are, do you think he woikd be a good signing?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Lucas Vazquez (RW/RM/RWB) out of contract in the summer. Prior interest of Liverpool has gone. Spurs and Leeds are keen and Bayern Munich may offer him a role as cover. Agent has spoken to other sides including Manchester United but it seems unlikely they would be interested to me unless it is as cover for AWB as a wing back or at RW. It had been expected that a new contract would be agreed with ease as he has been playing regularly this season but Real Madrid are still finalising their plans for the summer and there are a couple of unresolved issues to be considered first.

His advantage i versatility on the right. Downside is he is coming up to 30 and the demands to sign will be significant.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2021 14:24:53
Thanks ED002.
