Fabrizio reporting that we are now trying to hijack the Malacia to Lyon deal deal, Feyenoord have accepted Unied's bid and its now up to the player.
Its all go over the last 24hrs.

Ajax apparently contacted United advising Arsenal have bid £35m for Martinez. Clearly no issue with him going but want a bidding war.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2022 12:34:06
Maybe, or maybe United and Ajax have a good relationship and United have asked to be kept informed.

28 Jun 2022 22:20:08
Fair play to Ajax. Great relationship of course. But they want to get maximum value for their player. So it can be both!

28 Jun 2022 11:05:35
Looks like the FDJ deal is edging closer.

Sky Sports News has been told the clubs have a "broad agreement" on the fee - believed to be €65m (£56m) plus performance-related add-ons.

Time for City to swoop in and match it….

28 Jun 2022 00:31:06
Alright Ed,

I've seen a report saying Athletico Madrid and lazio are interested in Anthony martial.

Just wondering if it's True.

I think myself hell end up staying and winding down contract.

{Ed002's Note - Anthony Martial (F) Will leave now his loan to Sevilla is over. His agent has spoken with Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, Newcastle, Juventus and Arsenal, no doubt amongst others. Lyon remain a club looking for a striker so a deal may be possible but it seems unlikely and they have other options as I have explained. It will be difficult.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002, With Moussa Dembele likely to leave Lyon with only a year left on his contract and United's past interest in him. Wouldn't some kind of a swap deal involving Martial and Dembele be a good solution for both sides?

Or is that just far too sensible for Manchester United to consider.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have no interest in him.}

28 Jun 2022 11:35:27
That’s a shame. As I said a few weeks ago, swapping Dembele for Martial would be a great bit of business for all involved. Guess ETH just doesn’t fancy him though.

28 Jun 2022 11:37:29
Signing Dembele is arguably a worse deal than keeping Martial.

Im sure people on here just want to sign people for signing sake, good Job not on the board or we'd be ****ed.

28 Jun 2022 12:30:28
I'm with you kevani.

28 Jun 2022 16:25:20
Dembele is poor.

28 Jun 2022 18:14:36
Dembele is another sulky French mistake waiting to happen…….

28 Jun 2022 19:20:28
Dembele is no better or no worse than Martial.

He has managed more than 20 goal contributions in 3 of the last 4 season's.

He's a solid steady eddy player who wouldn't cause a problem being second fiddle to Ronaldo.

He's not who I'd have as first or even second choice, but was really offered as a possible solution to get Martial and his 250k per week off the wage bill.

Personally I don't think there are many great striker options available currently. The fact that Benzema and Lewandowski at 33 and 34 are the two best strikers in the world, with to be honest pretty slim pickings elsewhere.

Beyond them there is Haaland and Mbappe, who we obviously aren't going to be able to sign.

After that there isn't another centre forward I'd feel confident in saying they'd score 20+ league goals next season.

28 Jun 2022 19:57:06
Utd have an eye on Dembele since he was at Fulham.

Had a bad season 19/ 20 but very good again last season. Imo excellent cover for a top 6 team, starter for anyone else.

27 Jun 2022 20:40:11
Evening Ed,
Will the club sign a new CB this Summer?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I expect so.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2022 21:42:52
Thanks for the reply Ed. Will it be Timber?

{Ed002's Note - Maybe.}

27 Jun 2022 14:43:14
Hey Ed,

Quick question, do United have any interest in Lisandro Martinez or are Timber and Torres still the preferred targets?

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Lisandro Martinez (CB) An approach by Manchester United may be on the cards but the clear two preferred targets are others. For Arsenal, if Saliba gets his wish to leave he would be one of several options the club has identified to provide an option to Gabriel and White. Ajax do not want to sell.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2022 16:05:10
Thanks Ed.

Have a good day!

27 Jun 2022 16:19:08
Fabrizio just reported that Arsenal is trying to sign Lisandro and Salina is still there. If they sign him, we can forget about Timber. Torres isn't good solution in my opinion, he can't play in high back line system, he's slow. Villarreal low back line - fast transition football. We r really going to ruin this super important transfer window.

27 Jun 2022 17:07:26
Antony, Martinez/ Timber/ Torres, FDJ, Eriksen, Bachmann appear out targets, maybe a Ruben Neves if things go that way.

27 Jun 2022 17:13:29
H94,

We aren’t. Or we might, but you have no idea that’s the case yet.

27 Jun 2022 17:20:13
H94, Torres isn't slow, I think he clocked the highest speed of any CB in la Liga last season.

Admittedly Villareal don't tend to play a high line so it would be an adjustment.

For me the bigger concern is that he isn't particularly physically robust. He can be knocked off the ball too easily for me, and isn't dominant in the air despite being 6'2. Things that could count against him in the EPL.

27 Jun 2022 17:51:29
Already written off Timber. He is not first choice CB for Netherlands (only played 8 times) yet seemingly turning United down due to Van Goal comments on only picking players for the Netherlands who play regularly. Appreciate World Cup year and all that but he's 21. Maybe he thinks United will come in for him again? We shouldn't.

27 Jun 2022 17:52:16
I think if ten Hag wants them they are the right players. He knows better than anyone what he wants so if it’s Timber or Torres so be it. Personally don’t see Ajax selling a bunch of players, and not convinced we’ll strengthen at CB.

27 Jun 2022 18:34:07
Spanish Lindelof Shap.

27 Jun 2022 19:10:02
Whoever Ten Hag wants is good enough for me.

27 Jun 2022 20:42:39
Shappy loves a tall unit at the back ?.

27 Jun 2022 21:56:24
I kind of get where you coming from by saying torres is a tall lindelof but fot me he's better on the ball and in the air plus added bonus he's left footed united have struggled with finding someone to play left cb maguire takes to many touches in the left side when on the ball!

27 Jun 2022 22:35:45
Torres is probably better on the ball then Lindelof, probably more mobile and is quicker.

However, I also think he's weaker both in the air and in physical ground duels.

I'm not convinced his skillset suits the EPL which is the most physical league in Europe, and the league that has the most aerial duels.

I don't think Torres is a bad player, just one who's weaknesses could potentially be more exposed in the EPL due to the nature of the game here.

28 Jun 2022 13:17:34
#Shappy
I feel like Torres is club target because his name has been mentioned long before ETH arrived. His price is 60-65m€, we can sell Eric, add that money and go after De Ligt. I'm sure ETH would love to have him. I won't be surprised if we hear "United are showing interest in De Ligt" but two weeks later he signs for Chelsea.

26 Jun 2022 19:48:36
Hey Ed sorry to bother you on a Sunday evening, reports tonight that Fulham and united are close to agreeing a deal for Andrea's pereira, any truth to this? Be good to finally move him on and get some funds in. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Andreas Pereira (CM/AM) Flamengo wanted to turn their loan in to a permanent move but their finances are not in a good state and Murtough wanted to hang on to the player. He was offered as part of a deal offered to Benfica for another player but that did not happen. Fulham and Fenerbahce offered options and I expect Fulham will win out.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2022 11:43:47
Thanks for the response Ed, hopefully he will move on, it’s best for us and his own career. have a lovely day ?.

26 Jun 2022 20:03:04
Fulham in advanced talks ofr ANDREAS PERRIRA around 10 mill quid . plus add ons. v good business for us if true. good luck to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 20:31:31
Just heard this. Great news for us and Pereira. £10m - that could be the money we have been haggling with Barcelona for De Jong over the last six eons.

26 Jun 2022 23:06:51
Who’s doing the transfers at Fulham, Ed Woodward?

27 Jun 2022 06:31:34
GDS, I don't care, but if they are prepared to pay 10m for Pereira then maybe we should show them around our training ground of misfits and freaks and see if we can shift them a few more players.

27 Jun 2022 09:45:20
Haha I agree, £40m for Eric Bailly would transform their defence.

27 Jun 2022 10:35:15
Pure class GDS. Let’s hope the remaining players unlikely to feature under Ten Hag will be moved on swiftly too. Suspect Pereira by far the easiest to shift though!

27 Jun 2022 10:59:37
Halesini, I agree. While Pereira isn't a great player, he isn't on ridiculous wages and is fit more often than not.

The ones we will struggle to shift are those on high wages and/ or spend more time on the physios table than on grass.

27 Jun 2022 11:27:03
We’ve got a number of squad players who either through form or injury record just aren’t good enough to hack it in the premier league. Bailly has looked great at times albeit often rash in the challenge but, like Jones and Tuanzebe, seems to be made of glass. Maybe the like of Palace, Everton, Southampton they could stake a claim at first team football but their injury records suggest they wouldn’t play all the time. Their wages just won’t justify the investment.

Phil Jones is on £110k a week
Eric Bailly is on £87k a week

Highly unlikely someone else is going to pick up that kind of tab.

27 Jun 2022 15:46:31
But who'll win the player of pre-season, now?

27 Jun 2022 17:14:09
We might keep him for a couple of games of the tour and then let him go after that Nou. Let him hit a 40 yard volley.

28 Jun 2022 13:37:37
Personally I'd rather sell Fred and keep pereira but we all know that won't happen.
