Good morning Ed002. Do you know if there is any truth to the report that Utd have made an offer for Ruben Neves?

Thanks in advance for your insight.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of an offer.}

Lamestream Media (Express via Spanish Sport) now claiming FDG is refusing to move.
Hold the phone.

Hopefully FDJ does.

If true its pure stupidity to push for a deal a player does not want. Like the majority of players coming into this league he will find it veryd hard at the beginning and will need to adjust and take his bumps and share of criticism. Last thing we need is a player who does not want to be here.

29 Jun 2022 21:04:14
Would united be interested in bringing Depay back to the club?

{Ed002's Note - Sadly not.}

Gutted! Thanks for the reply.

Ed002, if you don't mind indulging. I don't recall if you have ever mentioned this name in recent times, but Tielemans. I know he is a target elsewhere, but do you know of any United interest, as I believe that he would be a fantastic addition.

{Ed002's Note - Youri Tielemans (CM) right now he will not sign a new contract so will be available in the summer at a reduced fee. His agent confirmed that there is interest from Real Madrid who are looking for a Luka Modric replacement, interest from Spurs and that he has been approached by a third party representing Newcastle. He is aware that other clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool, have scouted the player but not declared an interest. Interest of the Manchester sides has probably gone as both are looking at other midfield options but they will be back if they cannot get their first choice players - and MU are struggling. Arsenal and Juventus provide wildcard options but Arsenal will have to focus on fixing other issues in the squad first and Juventus, whilst needing significant midfield changes are looking to preferred options. I suspect that Real Madrid will shift their interest leaving Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal to work on a transfer.}

Hi Ed002, who would these first choice targets be for Man Utd that we are struggling with? I thought FdJ was first choice in that position and we look to be set to be getting him. Has something changed.
Thanks as always for your inputs.

{Ed002's Note - The club are struggling over de Jong.}

29 Jun 2022 14:49:12
ED002,


It looks like the club will struggle lost their "amateur" badge.

29 Jun 2022 15:17:05
Ed002. Many thanks for that. Have a good week.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

29 Jun 2022 16:24:42
Ed - as always respect you sharing the info etc but have there been developments this afternoon on the FDJ front?
Several large media outlets are now saying fee agreed and that the player is open to joining United and all that remains is personal terms. Is this now accurate?

{Ed002's Note - I am not the one to give bow-by-blow updates.}

29 Jun 2022 17:07:19
I don't think anyone other than those dealing with the deal really know what is going on.

People are reporting what FDJ is thinking, how does anyone truly know what someone else is thinking. At best it's a judgement made from comments he has said in public.

From what little I know, it's unusual for a club to negotiate with a player before an agreement has been made with the club.

Which means it's unlikely that the club is in discussions with FDJ yet.

That said, clubs also rarely bother submitting offers unless they know the player is at least open to joining the club.

From the outside looking in it looks like Barcelona need to sell, not just to raise funds but to save on wages.

The player would prefer to stay at one of the biggest clubs in the world and at a club that had a close affiliation with Ajax. At a guess I'd also say he'd rather play UCL football next season. At least that is what the player has said publicly.

United and specifically EtH really wants the player and sees them as a key component of the team he is trying to build. Again this is what is being reported.

Now we just need to let the people at both clubs, the player and his agent work together to work something out. I'm sure we'll know what is happening in the next couple of days one way or another.

29 Jun 2022 17:19:52
If we don't manage to get de jong after all this, the meme club have peaked.

29 Jun 2022 17:51:29
Laurie Whitwell has confirmed a deal has been agreed.

29 Jun 2022 20:10:23
I prey to god tielemans is not in a ubited shirt. Do so average imo. Save the money and would rather have fred and mc in cm and buy in next window a proper cm. Buying for the sake of buying is what we have been doing.

29 Jun 2022 20:43:30
Latest is that FDJ is traveling to Manchester tomorrow by helicopter. Big twist, it’s being piloted by Schniedurer and he’s finally joining too.

29 Jun 2022 20:55:24
Would just sum up our transfer dealings of the past few years if fdj doesn't want to join. Spend ages chasing someone that doesn't really want to come. Do we not atleast ask agents before we waste time chasing players that don't want to come.

29 Jun 2022 23:38:02
Danny,

When things don’t sound true they probably aren’t. Best to just wait and see.

30 Jun 2022 07:59:36
The downside of being a Utd supporter is that they’re still the biggest attraction in the media for selling stories so we get these ridiculous and contradicting reports, and blow by blow updates of every single transfer. It’s tedious, frustrating and 90% made up.

I hate the transfer window with a passion.

29 Jun 2022 06:06:49
Hi Ed, have we bid for Martinez?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2022 13:59:49
Think we might be being used to push Arsenal to move. Apparently they’ve now upped their bid as a result of this rumour. Maybe we are interested but how much is the question?!

28 Jun 2022 16:15:31
It's being reported that we have agreed a deal for Tyrell Malacia. Can any of the eds shed some light on this and does that mean one of Shaw or Telles are on their way out and who would be interested?


thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Tyrell Malacia (LB/LWB) Ajax failed to persuade Malacia to move from Feyenoord last summer and have now shifted their interest to another as a more versatile Tagliafico replacement - but they face competition from Chelsea and Juventus - and possibly Barcelona, so they could look to him again. With ten Hag moving to Manchester it is not unreasonable to speculate that they could look to him, but would he be interested in a role covering for Shaw, but there is interest. Lyon are keen and have been speaking to Feyenoord. Feyenoord have a replacement already lined up.

28 Jun 2022 21:25:48
Thanks Ed much appreciated
And anyone showing interest in telles or any of the other existing full backs.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest in Telles.}

28 Jun 2022 21:45:51
Thanks.

28 Jun 2022 15:48:21
Rumours we have jumped in to try and get the kid malacia from feyenoord. Looked like he was going to Lyon but it appears we may have moved in and are trying to scupper that deal? Ed do u have any info on this please? Thanks.

Thanks Ed, sorry as it appears you’ve been asked the same question multiple times today. Sorry for making u repeat yourself. Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - no problem.}

Reports on-line that United have beaten Lyon to the signing of Tyrell Malacia.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2022 17:16:27
Personally, I'd rather United signed David Raum, but Malacia would be a decent upgrade on Shaw and Telles.

28 Jun 2022 17:42:41
Malachia for €15m + 2 add-ons looks tremendous value. He’s had other offers for a few weeks but been holding out for us apparently.

Telles off now surely.

I suspect De Jong and Malachia are the two players Ten Hag expects to be completed in time for the Far East tour. But who’s next? Martinez or Torres at CB? Antony at RW? Eriksen?

At last the transfer wheels have started to move a little.

28 Jun 2022 19:13:21
Good chance that De Jong, Malacia and Bachmann could be done before the tour.

Could even get Eriksen is he decides to choose us over staying in London.

We could literally have 4 new players before the tour, with rumours of Antony or another flexible forward and maybe a CB if we can shift some off the squad list.

I think the Malacia deal has been forced due to Lyon pushing to complete his signing.

It's fortunate that Malacia and FDJ share the same agent, it should make it easier to simultaneously complete both transfers.

28 Jun 2022 23:05:41
Got to admit I’m more concerned about right back than any other position. Both of our options aren’t good enough and I can’t see that they ever will be.

28 Jun 2022 23:08:27
How is Malacia an upgrade on Shaw and Telles?

In what departments does he suffice as an upgrade? He's 22 year old and only been courted by the likes of Lyon and West Ham along with us!

I suspect it means he's likely to play second fiddle to shaw and be back up. Thus allowing Telles to leave as he's not going to get any better with age.

29 Jun 2022 10:07:26
Kevani, aren't you a cheerful delight.

I think Malacia will come in and initially replace Telles. He's an exciting young player who several Eredivisie pundits have called the best full back in the Eredivisie last season.

Telles has been somewhere between average and poor in all his appearances for United.

Malacia has the potential to be a top young player, and possibly in time an upgrade on Shaw. If he settles well and can develop well.

EtH has followed him to over 2 years and attempted to sign him for Ajax last summer. So I'll be inclined to trust his better judgement.

29 Jun 2022 13:47:51
As Shap says, EtH wants him that should be enough for us.

29 Jun 2022 17:35:18
I am glad people keep reminding us of the important fact that United's manager knows more about football and has more influence on United purchases than random people on the Internet.

30 Jun 2022 10:13:45
Its just fact how everyone is an expert on Malacia since we've agreed a deal and he's the best thing since sliced bread. Saying he's an upgrade on Shaw and telles when no one knows if he is or not.

I hope it turns out to be a good signing.

Just need a RB, CB, CM, RW and ST now.
