I don't usually post rumors but I was told by a contact at Atletico Madrid that they were considering Ruben Dias as a replacement for Diego Godin but the 60mil euro valuation of Benfica meant they decided to look elsewhere, but may look to him again. Juventus have looked at him as well but they too don't want to pay the valuation.

Considering that the Editor has told us we are interested and if indeed Atleti won't complete the deal I think he would be a great signing for us.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 21:34:28
That Dias looks a very composed and tidy player. Hope our interest is serious because in today’s day and age, £50m could be a shrewd signing.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 21:57:20
He looks a player, although I think he might take a year to settle a bit like Lindelof. He doesn't look the strongest and will need to be stronger in the EPL. But he has great technique, wonderful reading of the game and a bit of bite in him.

09 Jun 2019 22:43:43
He looks made for the Premier League to me fella’s, would me more than happy if we could bring him in, Bruno Fernandez was also impressive tonight. Could do a lot worse than aiming to sign both up.

09 Jun 2019 23:15:41
Spot on lads. I have been a bit concerned about de ligt when he is against pace which is why I’ve not been fully sold on the idea of joining. I know there is no chance, but I do think defensively he’s not the best. Great on the ball and he has the potential to be a great player. But first and foremost I want my cbs to be able to defence.

Dias looks like a good defender and keeps things simple. If there is a chance to sign him I’d be all over it. Alderweireld is another, koulibaly is too expensive and perhaps Milenkovic. Never been the biggest Maguire fan but he is an improvement.

Impressed with Bruno tonight, hope we sign him. The Portuguese team had really quality on the ball, something the Dutch perhaps lacked. Bernardo, Ronaldo and Bruno are all players with equisite technique. That was the difference for me. Bernardo is an absolute gem of a player. Combines talent with sheer work rate and industry. City have a great player on their hands. Thoroughly jealous.

10 Jun 2019 12:26:58
Bernardo Silva is absolutely class, I'm surprised how strong he is for such a small player.

Hopefully CR7 has put in a good word about us to Bruno and Dias, both look very good.

In terms of CBs, Toby would be my first choice. I know he's a short-term fix, but we need an instant fix to our defence, we can't wait 2-3 years for a new full back and centre back to develop.

09 Jun 2019 14:50:49
Lots of news nd rumour flying around that we have agreed Bruno Fernandes deal and it's almost done. He is next in line to join the club soon.

{Ed004's Note - Hopefully sign him up and Wan bissaka this week}

Agree1 Disagree3

09 Jun 2019 15:20:06
If true, James, AWB and Bruno are fa gastric signings and it’s business done early.

Hopefully a few on here will chill their beavers when the signings are made official.

09 Jun 2019 15:33:14
That would be a great start Ed004. I think this would allow us to continue to work on the other areas of need and slowly build. I also think these would encourage others to come and join the rebuild and believe in what we are doing.

{Ed004's Note - Then focus on securing a centre back and holding midfielder. Those 5 signings would be a top window. If Lukaku goes then replace him too}

09 Jun 2019 17:23:50
Now mentally picturing the usual suspects sitting around chilling beavers.

09 Jun 2019 18:22:39
I prefer my beavers hot, not chilled.

09 Jun 2019 02:43:43
Sky (I know) reporting a bid has gone in for AWB no figure quoted though, just substantial. Watch this space.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 05:48:55
Sky make things up all the time, they are just trying to generate clicks and interest. Their deadline day shows have become embarrassing, they build them up into being ‘the most dramatic day ever’ and they are always a compete flop. They also have their own betting site which is dodgy. Creae a rumour and then watch the money go on it.

09 Jun 2019 10:31:43
Fair comment AJH, I guess we’ll have to wait and see if there is anything to it.

09 Jun 2019 10:42:21
Sky Sources, means we read it in the metro.

09 Jun 2019 12:20:19
Love this to be true but I don’t see us paying over £50m for a fullback.

09 Jun 2019 12:32:49
IDK about the fee but the player yes, he is exactly what we need. We need him and a very good center back and i think the defense will be sorted out, after that Ole or whoever is calling the shots can concentrate on balancing the midfield out. A right winger should be a priority.

09 Jun 2019 15:12:06
As much as I think we will eventually sign him, I wouldn't believe any outlet that has as much influence over a betting market as Sly Sports.

09 Jun 2019 16:28:34
£40m bid gone in.

09 Jun 2019 16:44:41
Is wan bissaka really that good of a player? I know the market is inflated so I won't get into money. But do you guys think he would be an upgrade on Valencia. From what I've seem he seems good in defense but doesn't really contribute much going forward. He takes the ball forward like Valencia used to do but there is no end product just like Valencia. His crosses aren't that good and passing is also average.
Maybe you guys have seen much more of him at Palace so please let me know what you guys think of him.

{Ed004's Note - He is a brilliant player. Outstanding defensively and has the most successful dribbles of any fullback in the league. Hudgson doesnt seem to give the fullbacks much freedom to get forward but he got a couple of nice assists last season. I think he would be a cracking signing}

09 Jun 2019 17:27:34
I agree with Ed's assessment of Wan-Bissaka. He has been really good defensively, arguably the best fb in the league defensively. And I don't think his offensive game can be questioned too much because as Ed4 stated, Palace aren't the most attacking team and Even if AWB was given the freedom to attack, he would be crossing towards Benteke, the most immobile forward in the league. He would produce better results crossing at a Lamppost than Benteke.

Even then for me personally, if we sign AWB and he turns into one of the best fb defensively but is only "average" in attack, I would gladly take it.

{Ed004's Note - I would argue he is the best fullback defensively. Only fullbacks I would have over him are Robertson and Trent due to their attacking threats.}

09 Jun 2019 18:32:03
Slight tangent but for those that have seen Palace would Zaha be a good option to develop. Both would be used to playing with each other. Not seen enough to judge and also there is the never go back rule!

08 Jun 2019 12:13:05
A few reports coming out now that united are getting frustrated and are surprised by the fees involved in signing british young players.

Have they been living under a rock for the past 6 or 16 years?

I completely understand that they have certain valuations for players and if they are quoted over that then they should back away in most circumstances and move on to other targets.

But prices for young british homegrown players have always been at a premium whether its rio ferdiand, andy carroll or kyle walker and i would be baffled if this was surprising them.

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Jun 2019 13:07:43
There’s no doubt a Manchester United tax is added to the value of any player we approach.

Daniel James being the perfect example. We are paying twice the fee Leeds were quoted only four months ago.

09 Jun 2019 02:52:55
Rooney Rio Andy Carroll sterling Walker

The list goes on homegrown cost a hell of a lot more.

09 Jun 2019 08:28:29
Except Rooney and Rio were worth every penny for our club!

09 Jun 2019 09:38:35
Very true Eric. As is Sterling for City.

Imagine what Scholes would be worth today 🤔.

09 Jun 2019 12:36:56
AT Wazza finally someone who really rates Scholes as high as me, if we had a player like Scholes in our current squad our defense wouldn't be as exposed as it has been the past years, he is what i would call MAESTRO. one of those players that don't get recognize in England but are truly hard to find.

09 Jun 2019 15:22:58
Remanutd he’s exactly the type of player we need. You see Rashford making so many runs but the ball moves sideways.

I remember a game we were losing, playing badly and Scholes was brought on. It was the end of his career. But he collected the ball four times and each time he passed the ball forward. He was so aggressive with his passing, fast and direct.

07 Jun 2019 05:50:13
Good Morning Ed002.
Eagerly waiting for your updates :)
Hope you get some time today.

{Ed002's Note - In terms of those having their parking spaces removed:
David De Gea (G) wants out - but the club may block it
Antonio Valencia (RB) MLS beckons
Matteo Darmian (RB/LB) there is an offer from Valencia
Marcos Rojo (LB/CB) not wanted but limited which countries he can move to
Ander Herrera (CM) wants more game time but club wants him to stay - will likely go to PSG
Paul Pogba (CM) wants out - but the club may well block a move - which could be a particularly dumb thing to do - they want to offer a new contract but were quoted just under £21M per season basic wage plus significant add ons
Juan Mata (RM/RW)
Alexis Sanchez (LW/F) there is no clear route to end the relationship - Likely not financially viable for Inter and Atletico would need to think hard about the risk
Anthony Martial (LW) Manchester United will be open to a good offer but getting one will be difficult
Marcus Rashford (F) Manchester United will price him out of a move - but Barcelona remain keen
Romelu Lukaku (S) like others he is keen to leave - currently priced out of a move to Inter.}

Agree7 Disagree0

07 Jun 2019 13:30:11
I would sell rashford to Barcelona,
But we will be told he is btitish and local we can't sell him. I'd bite their hand off.

07 Jun 2019 13:01:52
ED002 would you be willing to give your opinion on Daniel James as a player, and if you think he is a good buy, the right attitude etc.

{Ed002's Note - I am not really the one to ask but I understand he is a level headed young man and expectations are high.}

07 Jun 2019 13:12:59
Thanks a lot Ed.

07 Jun 2019 14:49:23
Worrying signs that the likes of smalling, jones and young will still have their parking spaces come the start of next season.

07 Jun 2019 16:12:08
They were all offered new contracts when they should have been shown the door.

07 Jun 2019 17:19:25
Cannot understand how unappreciated Rashford is among our own supporters. Look, he isn't the finished article, far from it. He needs to work on his finishing. But he's 21 years old, and a United fan. He has bags of potential, the fact that Barcelona are sniffing around is testament to that. He works hard and he presses from the front, everything we bemoan Lukaku doesn't do. I'm not saying he has to be our no.1 striker next season, I just can't get my head around so many 'fans' wanting to see the back of the best acadamy player we've produced in the last decade.

07 Jun 2019 16:03:47
Thanks for the insights Ed, any knowledge of who the club may be looking to promote from the U23s?

{Ed002's Note - I am not the one to ask. Sorry.}

07 Jun 2019 18:08:02
Great. De gea, pogba, rashford and martial. Figures we’d let our only potentially world class players leave. What a joke.

07 Jun 2019 18:30:28
Young, Lingard are the two players who have the potential to make even great teams like 70 Brasil and Barcelona (2010-2013) look mediocre immediately. City have 2 top class players for every position, United have people like Lingard, Young not worth at all even for Bench. Till now I don't know What is the best/ Favourite position of Lingard. Easily the worst player in the Current United squad. Personally I think the manager who get rid of Lingard will win the PL title for United.

07 Jun 2019 20:18:58
Have to disagree only on the fact he isn’t United’s worst player that honour could go to either jones, rojo, darmian, Young first and to say whoever sells him will win the league we’ll that's just ridiculous.

08 Jun 2019 02:48:22
Lingard is a worker but a squad player I'd keep him n try n shift the likes of Jones young smalling rojo darmain matic!

08 Jun 2019 06:14:47
I don’t understand some of our fans. The guy that would bite Barcelona hand off for rashford. You don’t think theclue is in the fact that it is Barcelona that want him might suggest he’s going to be a top player. A local lad, born and bred red but you’d have him out the door I presume because you don’t rate him.

Lukaku, Sanchez, mata, martial all need to go before him but maybe you’d prefer to get rid of our entire forward line in one summer. Tool.

08 Jun 2019 06:19:08
I can see why Ed gets so frustrated with united fans. Some of you are utter morons. I come on and read a lot, rarely post but I’m a season ticket holding match going red and I’ve never heard fans in the bar or the ground giving rashford or Lingard the stick that they get in here. You’ve got some guys on here with seriously flawed and unrealistic views of football, players and in particular our club.

It’s embarrassing to read the drivel some days.

08 Jun 2019 08:16:55
Pep and Klopp raised the bar so high such that getting 100 points won't guarantee you PL title. Having people like Lingard in the bench won't help United go anywhere near those two teams. There is no single player in Current United team who performs 8/ 10 every match not even DDG who was erratic lately. City without their Best player KDB and best left back Mendy and few other quality players missing they play same high quality football because of their top notch squad. It is ok if United beat smaller oppositions and teams like current Chelsea, Arsenal easily and finish third, 10 or 12 points behind City and Pool then we have to do bring in few quality players to close the gap. Now the situation is United are outplayed by smaller oppositions and they create more clear cut chances than United in the last 3 or 4 seasons irrespective of manager we have/ had. Teams like Bournemouth play better passing creative football than current United side. Only god knows what Woodward and OGS will do in the coming months!

08 Jun 2019 15:06:59
Look at their managers though. The only reason these two clubs are reaching the heights they are. Plus it helps if you can buy any player you want as in city’s case.

08 Jun 2019 16:18:40
Ncs, it takes a lot more than a good manager to win trophies.

The current City team is one of the best teams of the PL era, and this is arguably the best team Liverpool have had for 30 years.

08 Jun 2019 21:49:05
Thanks as always for your very much valued insights ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Ross.}

07 Jun 2019 08:18:19
Hope the heads not too muzzy this morning, Ed002? Cocktails at 3pm, for me, would be a very unproductive following day :)

Just a friendly reminder of your promise of a cheeky peek at your notes of wisdom, if you can find time today.

I wait in eager anticipation.

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Players being looked at include:

RB, CB, CM, CM/AM, RW/F needed plus possibly a GK

Jasper Cillessen (G)
Ahmadou Dia (G) one for the future - there has been a meeting this week (Monday) but nothing came of it
Berke Ozer (G) one for the future
Kaylor Navas (G) now available but probably heading elsewhere
Mike Maignan (G) Manchester United asked for a price knowning that Lille have identified a replacement already
Andre Onana (G) will challenge Barcelona for a deal
Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) €75M asking price is seen as excessive and another English side walked away last year - interest from elsewhere

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) MU are interested and want to but AWB but the £70M asking price is well beyond what the value him at
Davide Calabria (RB) - has been watched by Manchester United, Lille, Spurs, Everton and Samporia but will certainly not be moving this summer
Thomas Meunier (RB) has been watched and an offer could be made - a safe solution
Mario Fernandes (RB) watched after being recommended by an ex player
Max Aarons (RB) seen as a viable option for the future but not one for the first team just yet - doubtful he would move
Joao Cancelo (RB) wanted by Mr Mourinho so probably a target again - but looks to be heading elsewhere

Kostas Manolas (CB) - expect his name to get some publicity but persuading him to leave Rome and move to the wastelands of northern England may not be easy - available to Italian sides at €36M but Roma are looking for €50M from English or Spanish sides. Strike him from the list.
Harry Maguire (CB) Leicester want him to stay but MU could return with a good offer - and he has the advantage of being home grown - but Manchester City are lurking
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) The club have been approached to say they can significantly increase the offer to the player and Barcelona will step back as they don't see the value - but the player will be told it is now or never for Barcelona as they will move on. Could be a very expensive mistake brining him to England and could cause a senior departure at the club. Very unlikely and another side have also put a very high offer on the table as well.
Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) ironically a Mourinho favourite and very, very expensive, so unlikely right now, particularly with discussions in hand with another club
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) a very good option
William Saliba (CB) a number of clubs are very keen on Saliba - particularly Arsenal who would like to strike a deal but want to do it without and auction that could push up the €30M starting price which they think is high for an 18 year old, particularly as they will only let him leave if they get an at least one year loan on the player immediately. This has removed the interest of Real Madrid. Manchester United see him as one for the future, but I would not be surprised to see MU look to an offer this summer. Benfica would also like to recruit him but I am not sure they are in the position to pay a significant sum and then loan him back for a year. Interest from Watford and Lille has become moot and if Southampton are keen on him, and there is no doubt he is a good player, they would need to negotiate an immediate move or end up in the same position as Benfica.
Raphael Varane (CB) was of prior interest of Mr Mourinho when at Manchester United and even if that interest were to return a discussion has already been held with another side - plus Madrid will try and tempt him to stay, although he wants out. I suspect he could easily be priced out of a move by RM looking to block the transfer. Juventus also had an enquiry rejected.
Niklas Sule (CB) watched by MU but Bayern Munich have no interest in selling - I would strike him from the list
Toby Alderweireld (CB) would be no more than a short-term solution and Spurs want him to stay and sign a new deal as they will already be losing one CB - I would strike him from the list
Milan Skriniar (CB) Financial demands of Inter are excessive (well over €100M) and will fend off interest with a new contract - strike him from the list
Ruban Dias (CB) - heading elsewhere according to Jorge Mendes but he was very much a target for Mr Mourinho and I would not strike him from the list yet - as the side he was due to join did not see the value in the asking price

Declan Rice (DM) has been watched, but no declared interest and I expect the club are resigned to nothing happening
Sean Longstaff (DM) has been identified by OGS and his folks as a target but the player has apparently some concerns about leaving the wastelands of the North East for the wasteland of the North West - this will likely be a worry about getting game time

Idrissa Gueye (CM/DM) seen by someone well placed as too old - won't happen
Ivan Rakitic (CM) some discussions with another side resulted in a tentative agreement for him to move elsewere - but only if Barcelona make him available which will only happen if they can secure the replacement they want and set a viable asking price for a 31 year old. But they asked for €75M so that ended the matter. Manchester United should step away from any interest in the player.
Rodrigo Hernandez (CM) I suspect he will either go to Manchester City instead of Saul who they consider too expensive or to Bayern Munich - strike him from the list
Carlos Rodriguez (CM) MU have been scouring the Liga MX and CR has caught they eye - hard to see how a WP could be obtained
Saul Niguez (CM) - If Pogba is to be replaced, a potentially expensive option that Manchester City have stepped back from
Youri Tielemans (CM) seen as a cheap CM option if Pogba leaves - a long term favourite of Mr Mourinho again

Bruno Fernandes (AM) has been of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. I am not aware of any interest at all from Inter who have been credited with looking at him and the situation at Milan has hit meltdown so they can be discounted. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA - and like priced him out of a move to all but a couple of the interested sides. Whilst Bayern Munich and Manchester City have looked as well, they don't have a declared interest and have other AM targets. Manchester United remain very keen.
Joao Felix (AM) I though interest may have left with Mr Mourinho and very expensive - in talks for a move elsewhere but Manchester United are still watching the player - could be used as a RW
Luciano Acosta (AM) has been watched by PSG, Manchester United, Genoa, Lyon and Newcastle but Fenerbahce have made an enquiry. A WP would be difficult for England unless paying well over the odds and DC United will look to renew his contract. Scratch him from the list.
Paulo Dybala (AM/RW/F) - Player wants elsewhere but could be one of a couple of players Juventus could offer for Pogba

Jadon Sancho (RW) BD have no interest in selling - scratch him off the list for now
Nicolas Pepe (RW) concerns over attitude and step up - MU cannot afford a potentially very expensive mistake - scratch him from the list
Samuel Kalu (RW) has been watched by MU but would be no more than cover - scratch him from the list
Douglas Costa (RW) price may well be an issue as asking price is €80M and player thinks he will stay with Allegri gone but he has been offered in a trade to another side - very unlikely
Wilfried Zaha (RW) another option

Steven Bergwijn (LW/RW/F) has been watched by MU but discussions are in hand for a move elsewhere - but he could resolve the RW issue looking very unlikely
Hirving Lozano (LW) - strike him from the list
Justin Kluivert (LW/RW) would be a OGS pick and after a poor season in Rome offers will certainly be listened to - unlikely
Daniel James (LW) transfer to Manchester United is going ahead
Ryan Sessegnon (LW/LM/LWB) Manchester United remain very keen but after signing James and serious interest (and an offer) from elsewhere it is looking less likely

Sebastien Haller (S) OGS has had SH watched as a potential replacement for Lukaku if he is not priced out of a move - it makes little sense to me.}

07 Jun 2019 12:29:04
Wow!
Very detailed report

Hats of to you Ed002

Keep up the good work:)

07 Jun 2019 12:46:03
Thank you very much, Ed! Really appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - No problem, you are welcome.}

07 Jun 2019 12:54:29
Great stuff Ed002.

If we're able to sign De Ligt i'll be impressed. He seems Barcelona bound and recently reports saying PSG are interested too.

Also really hope we push for Wan-Bissaka, not many good fullbacks around these days.

{Ed002's Note - You need to read again about de Ligt - I said it was very unikely.}

07 Jun 2019 13:04:29
That's a shame Ed, thought he'd do well in the prem.

We seem to be interested in a lot of CB options, do you know if the club are intending on bringing in only one CB in or could we see an already established CB arriving as well as a younger player for the future?

{Ed002's Note - Please read it.}

07 Jun 2019 13:33:41
Thanks Ed002, have a great weekend!

07 Jun 2019 13:51:09
I think last night showed that de Ligt struggles with pace. When Kane came on he looked far assured.

07 Jun 2019 14:13:06
Thanks, Ed. Who is the senior staff member who could leave if De Ligt was signed out of interest?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

07 Jun 2019 14:17:30
Thanks Ed for all the details, this should hold this page for a while.
Thank you Southern Monkey for such a pleasantly put question and repeating it ever so casually as a reminder. Some of us can learn a thing or 2 from you.

07 Jun 2019 14:43:58
Thanks, mbd. For all those that want to know the secret. Its called manners, and they're free. ;)

07 Jun 2019 15:10:17
Great stuff Ed thanks.

07 Jun 2019 15:36:46
i hope we don't get HM.

We should have gone for TA last summer not looking promising in the defensive side of recruiting.

its going to be a long summer.

07 Jun 2019 15:45:03
Fantastic breakdown ed002. Many thanks. Very comprehensive. Lots of options there for United. It will be v interesting to see who they will look to pursue in the coming months.

07 Jun 2019 15:45:41
Thanks Ed. Great!

07 Jun 2019 16:15:14
Thanks for that 002, much appreciated.

07 Jun 2019 16:15:27
Ed can I ask why you think players should be ruled out because of cost.
Surely if English teams have to pay over the odds because of the premier league, so be it.
If they think they could be good enough for a position they need to fill, do i5.
Sure you never know how they will react to such a move, but that’s true of any player whatever the fee.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs need to be finacially responsible - if there is no value in a player the the club will move on.}

07 Jun 2019 16:20:21
Thanks ED002. Another fantastic update.

07 Jun 2019 16:24:29
Brilliant stuff, cheers Ed. I've been posting on this site for years and the work you guys do is tremendous.

Looks like the Rabiot rumours are rubbish as well.

07 Jun 2019 16:37:04
Fantastic breakdown Ed002, I take from this that the club doesn't hold an interest in James Maddison?

07 Jun 2019 22:27:30
Is a player not on the list, on the list?

*Ed002- facepalm


Sorry, Shappy. The monkey's made me do it.

08 Jun 2019 01:26:40
Appreciate this update. A little worried at the lack of strikers on this list considering there’s a possibility that Rashford and/ or Lukaku could leave. I appreciate there are quite a few goal scorers who play in other positions linked with us, but I was really hoping to see us sign a top striker this summer. To be fair though, we need players all over the pitch.

08 Jun 2019 07:51:46
Ed002, great review of the potential targets and possible movements.

Just a general question but Do you think it’s realistic that we could see up to 15 players going in and out in one window or do you think this will be a list that will move over the next 2/ 3 windows?

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a potential big turnaround and just wondered what your thoughts were on the feasibility of such a lot of movement?

{Ed002's Note - If you include youngsters leaving then ceratinly. From the first team squad it is less likely. The club need RB, CB, CM, CM/AM, RW/F needed plus possibly a GK and a S and I suspect that will remain the priority whilst adding a couple (like James) who can be considered to be players expected to come through for the future. Targets change and many of the targets the club has now were previously targets of Mr Mourinho - and now coaching staff have changed so it would be reasonable that at least some new targets will emerge.}

08 Jun 2019 08:08:38
Thanks for the summary Ed002 much appreciated.

So summarising the possibles from the ‘unlikely’, ‘for the future’ and ‘strike from the list’.

GK’s (if we replace a departing DDG) from
Jasper Cillessen
Mike Maignan
Andre Onana

FB’s
AWB very high price
Thomas Meunier
Mario Fernandes

CB’s
Harry Maguire expensive and wanted by city
Nikola Milenkovic
Ruben Diaz

DM’s
Sean Longstaff

CM/ DM’s
Saul Niguez
Yuri Tielemans

CAM’s
Bruno Fernandes
Joao Felix
Paolo Dybala (if part of a Pogba deal)

RW’s
Douglas Costa
Wilfried Zaha

LW/ RW/ FWD’s
Justin Kluivert
Daniel James

Rumoured but not on the list and therefore NOT of interest to United - Maddison, Trippier, Rabiot, Ramos, Collins, James, Pepe, Bale, Dier,

Just read Barcelona have made contact re. rashford for 100 million any truth to this?

I’d bite their hand off. I like the lad, but I don’t think he will ever be a world class player, at least not with us. His finishing just isn’t quite good enough.

07 Jun 2019 17:30:48
Buy Rashford and Take Lingard for free! one of the worst players around.

07 Jun 2019 23:25:19
Mm,

Do you like Lingard? Hard to tell from your posts, get off the fence.

08 Jun 2019 05:26:41
@GDS2 If I like Lingard why am I asking to sell him for free? I also said he is one of the the worst players United have.

08 Jun 2019 07:56:37
How is he one of the worst players we have? Scores winners in charity shield, FA and league cup finals. Works tirelessly and several high quality coaches and manages have spoken of his excellent movement And work rate. He’s a red and is a team player. Yet somehow In a squad containing smalling, Jones, young, Valencia, darmian, Rojo, Sanchez, Lukaku, Fred, and the rapidly declining matic and mata you honestly believe Lingard is one of our worst players? Words fail me.

08 Jun 2019 10:26:25
Midfield_maestro it was sarcasm. Exactly what a comment like that deserves.

09 Jun 2019 11:57:17
@AirforceRed so just because Lingard scored on Cup Finals which United (any other big club) consider secondary competition is he worth a place in the bench? CR7 missed a penalty in shootout in UCL finals against Chelsea, you apply same logic to CR7 also if he is with United now and sell him? Vincent Kompany scored a screamer against Leicester which virtually won them the PL and he is top quality defender even now, more than enough quality to be on the bench for city has been shown door by Pep (May be indirectly) . If Pep thinks Kompany is not good enough to be on the bench then Lingard is also not good enough to be anywhere near on United bench if United needs to match Pep's City.

Lingard, Smalling, Jones, young, Valencia, darmian, Rojo, Sanchez, Lukaku, Matic should all be sold no two ways about that. I am 50/ 50 on Mata.
Can give Fred a chance as it was his first season.

Just read somewhere that PSG have made a £70 million bid for David de Gea and that DDG's agent Jorge Mendes will meet with PSG reps in Qatar later this week to negotiate a deal.

We won't get anywhere near that amount for him.

06 Jun 2019 10:44:52
Just announced that buffon is leaving?

06 Jun 2019 11:02:55
70m sounds reasonable, better than letting him leave on a free next year.

06 Jun 2019 11:39:09
Romero for the year. See how he and Henderson (at Sheffield United) get on then decide next summer what to do. If neither are up to it then dip into the market for a goalkeeper who's good with the ball at their feet. Hopefully we won't need to buy one with them two. If Dave leaves then thanks for the great service. We'd be in an even worse position without you ❤.

06 Jun 2019 11:40:13
I'd snap their hands off at 70m. He is on a free next year and won't sign a new deal.

06 Jun 2019 12:10:52
agree with shappy snap there hands off for that amount,

we need to be making the defense a priority and we wouldn't need to rely on the keeper as much as we have done over the years.

06 Jun 2019 12:34:04
Anything over £50 million is good business. He might have twelve months to go but if PSG want him now then they'll have to reach a deal acceptable to us.

06 Jun 2019 17:07:46
Hazard £88million with a year left on his contract.

I'd hope to expect £60 million or around that figure.

06 Jun 2019 21:37:16
70 millions on De Gea is good pay out since they can use this money to get Oblak from AT Madrid.

06 Jun 2019 08:53:44
Daniel James medical later today according to reports.

Agree4 Disagree1

06 Jun 2019 09:34:46
So first signing is wrapped up.

06 Jun 2019 10:12:00
If all goes well aye. Maybe wishful thinking but looking at some of our supposed targets like Fernandes, Felix, de Ligt, we could see some more movement once the nations league is over.

06 Jun 2019 10:45:20
Really interesting signing this.

06 Jun 2019 12:12:39
the first actual winger we have signed since i can remember.


hopefully ole goes to the 4 2 2 2 that's been talked about.

06 Jun 2019 15:29:31
Bolger, the 2's play centrally to move the ball forward through midfield quickly.

James is best suited to a 433 or 4231 system.

Although I am pleased to see us sign a winger, I hope he can play on the right as well as the left, otherwise this signing will further unbalance the team.
