Hopefully this up and coming academy kid realises his potential on loan.

29 Jan 2021 13:15:41
MrGoodKat, more like senior academy kid. Jokes apart good luck to him.

29 Jan 2021 16:03:30
yeah, it's unfortunate that he never continued playing well after 2018 WC - it's always more satisfying when an academy graduate makes it. Maybe the loan and getting out of Manchester will be good for him.

Ed, with the club looking at defensive midfield options do you know if they are planning on moving matic on? Still feel he is a very good player and if his minutes are managed well he can be very effective for us.

{Ed002's Note - Matic will stay another year.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2021 00:23:50
That’s good to know Ed. I think his experience could be very important to us.

26 Jan 2021 01:28:16
I think the club wants Magic to transition into a coaching role, ideally.

27 Jan 2021 12:53:22
Matic like Mata for me I am happy to keep for one year longer than is probably necessary. He still offers a decent amount when needed, good role model to either McTominy/ Fred, new addition or from the youth set up.

27 Jan 2021 21:11:08
Have you seen him tonight, don't think he will survive another year.

28 Jan 2021 20:04:56
I often think that ‘experience’ is misused. Just because he’s old and his legs have gone doesn’t mean he is any more experienced than Rashford whose player a couple of hundred matches in his early 20s. It’s certainly no reason to keep a player when their quality goes.

29 Jan 2021 10:32:05
Fresh, of course it does. How many UCL semi finals/ finals has Rashford appeared in, how many league titles has he won?

Players like Matic and Mata offer something without even being on the pitch due to there years of experience at the top level.

We have a severe lack of experience running through the team. DDG, Lindelof, Maguire, Bailly, Telles, Pogba, Fred, Matic, Mata and Cavani are the only players in our squad over the age of 26. Of those only Telles, Pogba, Matic, Mata and Cavani can say they have any experience of challenging and winning the top honours.

Of those 5 Pogba wants out, while Matic, Mata and Cavani are all 32 or older and only have a year or two left in them. So we can't afford to just cull the experienced players as we lack leadership and experience.

Hi ed, hope you are well?

Wondering if you have any information on the future of Juan Mata? I believe his contract is up at the end of the season and while there's been talk about Romero, Dojo, Lingard etc leaving, I've not seen much about Mata.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Juan Mata (AM/RW) is out of contract in the summer and has opportunities to continue his career in Turkey and at at least a couple of clubs in the MLS. Manchester United could look to extend for a year but it depends what happens with another player, and I suspect there would be options in England if that were to suit him. Right now as far as I know it remains totally open as to what will happen. In Spain an option exists but they are a second tier team.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2021 20:30:02
Thanks Ed.

With the future of quite a lot of players in doubt I think it'd be wise to keep Mata for another year. Can cover on the right or as the 10, he's never relied on pace and he still has the ability to find a pass or score from a free kick to change a game.

25 Jan 2021 12:52:17
Another day, another name linked. Todays its the turn of Jamal Musiala from Bayern Munich linked to us. Most likely just nonsense from the press.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2021 17:24:58
Really talented lad, I expect him to sign a new deal at Bayern though.

I think we have some great players in the under 20 age bracket and personally I think we need to now look at players who can make a more immediate impact. We signed the three Spanish lads in the summer (two full backs and a winger), we have Willaims, Laird, Mengi, Garner, Levitt, Mejbri, Elanga, Pellistri, Diallo and Greenwood who will all need to have clear development plans, be that creating a pathway into the first team now, or loans to enable them to keep pushing themselves and continue developing.

26 Jan 2021 16:39:16
A plan at Man Utd? Ha ha, that's a good one Shappy.

23 Jan 2021 02:58:30
Hi Ed002. Any truth to the reports stating that we've offered to take Eriksen on loan until the end of the season?

{Ed002's Note - Christian Eriksen (AM) Borussia Dortmund may offer a solution at the right price. Again PSG will look to an exchange with Leandro Paredes but Inter will again ask for some cash on top of any transaction but may be willing to forego that to resolve the situation. He is being offered to other sides as well with his return to Spurs, possibly on loan initially, being considered if Dele Alli were to depart. Christian Eriksen is seen as an option to Grealish by OGS but it makes no sense until the Pogba and Van de Beek issues are resolved and no offer has been submitted. It is difficult to see how he would fit in to the team as it stands right now. Leicester want a loan but cannot afford the wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2021 12:55:05
Pleased to see we are still thinking of Grealish - I’d love to see us adopt the Bayern model of buying up the best domestic league talent.

I’m not sure where exactly he would fit into the side but a player of that quality has to play.

23 Jan 2021 13:52:05
Looking at the current form Grealish will easily replace Rashy on the left. He can also help to rotate Bruno at no 10.

23 Jan 2021 14:07:25
Form is temporary mate.

I could only see Grealish being played off the right or in a very attacking midfield 3 alongside Fernandes and a defensive midfielder. It would be exciting viewing, reminiscent to Xavi and Iniesta.

23 Jan 2021 15:02:55
Xavi and Iniesta had nothing to do with a very attacking midfielder. They were first of all good at possession, their job was to control games. Grealish and Fernandez as a pair are totally different kind of players.

23 Jan 2021 18:52:28
Wash your mouth out Fresh!

23 Jan 2021 19:34:55
Agree with Herrera. Grealish and Bruno I don’t think could play central together unless we had an absolute beast of a DM. And for me grealish despite rashford form right now does not displace him.

24 Jan 2021 11:18:38
You would need an avenger to play dm in a midfield with bruno and grealish to cover defensively.

24 Jan 2021 12:07:43
lol DSG. Thankfully we are interested in Rice, Zakaria and Saul.
Either one would be another step towards high quality.

24 Jan 2021 14:36:10
I'd go for ndidi if we are looking for a cdm. I love watching him play.

22 Jan 2021 04:39:51
Ed has there been any development in negotiations between MU and Pogba over a contract extension? Ed02 stated few weeks back that the club may use a third party to assist due to the poor relationship between them and the agent?

Just seems he's enjoying his football and I, for one, hope he stays!

{Ed002's Note - His agent is actively talking to another side about a summer transfer. They are still looking for options away from Manchester United for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jan 2021 10:20:38
They should let him move in the summer and respect his wishes. The club needs to grow up.

22 Jan 2021 10:55:55
In that case Ed, have the club yet accepted this and are they actively seeking a teplacement.

{Ed002's Note - They already have van de Beek and may not look for a direct replacement but look to strengthen elsewhere.}

22 Jan 2021 14:11:23
Saul please! And maybe a CF. Ed are any sides showing interest in Martial?

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

22 Jan 2021 16:55:24
Can you name the side ed?

How would this transfer work since we activated his 1 year extension? We would have to negotiate a few with the buying club and then negotiate a share of that fee with Pogba?

{Ed002's Note - PSG - I explained a week or so ago.}

23 Jan 2021 07:07:08
As Ed002 says we have the direct replacement for Pogba in Van De Beek, he does need a run in the side though because right now he's not happy and it looks like Ole doesn't rate him.

Personally I think we need a proper defensive midfielder. Someone who brings the energy Fred does but is better on the ball. Not that we are looking at him but Wilfried Ndidi would be an incredible signing. Bruno, Van De Beek and Ndidi would be an excellent midfield.

23 Jan 2021 07:31:03
If I remember correctly I think Inter held an interest in Martial as a possible replacement for Martinez should he leave.

{Ed047's Note - I didn’t know Inter were looking for more ground staff, he’d be ace at that stabbing the pitch with a fork thing they do as they only have to stroll around for 10 minutes each match doing it!

23 Jan 2021 07:41:54
I’m sure VDB is fully aware that Pogba is on his way and he’s been bought to replace him if Ed2 also has this information don’t you think? Truth is Pogba is currently undroppable.

24 Jan 2021 03:59:33
I'd like to see a Pogba/ Varane straight swap. Could solve both problems if it's true Varane is looking for a new challenge.

25 Jan 2021 09:57:51
He (Pogba) has had 4 good games and now some fans want him to stay. how fickle! Another thing i don't get on here is the love for VDB, he's had countless chances now and he's not affected one game. He's been very poor, almost lost in every game i have watched him in.
If he has been brought to replace Pogba then i world be very worried.

21 Jan 2021 22:51:16
Ed,

Are we interested in a brazilian player called Gabriel Veron?

{Ed002's Note - Gabriel Veron (RW) Palmeiras have quoted €50M as the asking price for the young RW which has made Barcelona and Juventus consider options. Manchester City will probably look to see how he progresses rather than agree such a large sum. Manchesteer United have added Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo in a similar position already and have not addressed their Jadon Sancho shambles but are like the other sides interested. Palmeiras may accept a single cash payment at a more reasonable price.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jan 2021 05:11:56
Thanks Ed I really don't know why they would look to add him unless one of Pellistri, Diallo or Veron if we sign him moves into a strikers position.

20 Jan 2021 14:24:57
Hi Ed002,

Any information about United's plans for Facundo Pellistri, Amad Diallo and Teden Mengi.

Would any of them be considered for loan to get more game time?
Ole said yesterday that Diallo is already making a difference in training.

Also are United any longer interested in Sancho after acquiring Pellistri and Diallo?

{Ed002's Note - Teden Mengi (CB) A January loan is possible. QPR have spoken with Manchester United. Pellestri may get a loan. Diallo will stay with U23s for now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2021 16:18:32
What is the plan for Hannibal Mejbri ed? if there is any.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing at this time because of his age.}

20 Jan 2021 22:49:21
I have to say a loan would be great if he can get into the qpr team he will gain great experience.
