Hey ed002/ all,

Hope everybody is good 👍 just wondering ed002 is daniel james seen as the solution to the RW area or are united still looking for a player in that position?
Would certainly take savic as a pogba replacement if we could get him. Again i echo a recent post and thank you and all the eds for the new info and everything ye do for the site 🙏.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks. DJ is a LW, the club are still looking to a RW/F.}

1.) 08 Jul 2019 11:10:53
That's interesting Ed if the club intend to play DJ in his natural position.

But what does that mean for Martial. AM hasn't really had any competition since he arrived so hopefully it's the kick up the back side that he needs.

{Ed002's Note - You are making an assumption the kid will be a starter.}

2.) 08 Jul 2019 13:46:04
True Ed. Hope he takes his chances which i'm sure he will.

3.) 08 Jul 2019 15:14:14
Won’t martial be competing with rashford for the cf role?

4.) 08 Jul 2019 16:11:01
Hopefully Greenwood will be challenging Rashford, I really hope Ole gives him a chance this year.



09 Apr 2019 01:49:37
Hey ed002,sorry to bother you just wondering is it true that united are interested in declan rice? thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to WHU about Rice from MU.}



04 Mar 2019 01:27:45
Hey ed002/ all
Hope everybody is good. ed002 if you are about and get a chance to reply, just wondering is there any update on what positions united will look to fill in the summer and who they might be looking at? thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - The expectation is that will need a RB, CB, AM, RW. The players they have been looking at remain unchanged as far as I know but you could strike some from the list given previously, like Lucas Paqueta and Ozan Kabak. Other than that the options remain the same, many of which were JM targets. They would also need to replace any players unexpectedly leaving and take a look at the younger players and decide if they are up to it or not.}

1.) 04 Mar 2019 11:26:54
Ed002, do you expect there will be many players leaving in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - From the first team squad, certainly a few. Obviously the club has identified some who wanted out who have signed new contracts (e.g. Jones) and will call time on some out of contract (e.g. Valencia. They need to decide what to do about others, some want out (e.g. Pogba) and some are not going to move easily (e.g. Sanchez).}

2.) 04 Mar 2019 11:56:29
Thanks Ed, is there anybody looking at Sanchez?

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

3.) 04 Mar 2019 12:18:46
Thanks. have a great day!

4.) 04 Mar 2019 12:37:13
Thank you Ed002.
Is there any truth linking us to Benfica duo Joao Felix and Ruben Dias.

Also, will United face completion for Alderweirald considering he will be available cheaply this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, both players have been of interest to Manchester United since last summer - the are Mr Mourinho targets. Right now I don't see Alderweireld moving in the summer unless something changes - and not to MU.}

5.) 04 Mar 2019 12:48:57
does pogba still want out or is he getting influenced by his agent.

lets hope his form continues and we get the best price possible to replace.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

6.) 04 Mar 2019 15:02:25

7.) 04 Mar 2019 19:20:48
Very interesting thanks for the update ed. Apologies if you have mentioned it before but which rbs are we interested in?

{Ed002's Note - Florenzi was the player Jose Mourinho had scouted but I doubt he would be interested in the move after he declared that Dalot was up to stepping up.}

8.) 04 Mar 2019 19:28:13
When it comes to younger players ed002, is there any idea who the club has in line to make the step up to the senior team next year?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know I am afraid.}

9.) 04 Mar 2019 20:25:52
Ed002 you mention jones above as someone who wanted out.
I don't understand giving him a new contract then is it because the club wanted him to stay or because they can now look for a higher fee.
He is not really 1st choice so it seemed an odd move to extend his contract.

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with playing time - a club give commitments players will sign.}

10.) 04 Mar 2019 21:30:17
I agree ken. The only reason I can see us resigning Jones is so that we don’t lose an asset for nothing. It may be a way of making sure he doesn’t walk out for nothing. Just my thoughts.

11.) 04 Mar 2019 22:13:17
I don't understand how our club just doesn't let players leave who are not good enough. They let Pogba go for free but won't let Jones and Smalling move to free up the wages. No one is going to buy them unless they are free agents.
If we just look at City, we can see how swiftly they move players on who are not good anymore. If we had Yaya and Nasri instead of City then they would still be at our club.

12.) 04 Mar 2019 23:24:06
Sailor I think at the end of the day we have to acknowledge that the club is a business. And we are run to businessman (unfortunately) . But I agree if it was my choice I would let him and others leave for free.

13.) 04 Mar 2019 23:35:38
Didn't mangala just sign a new contract?

{Ed001's Note - it was a 1 year option they took up, not a new contract as such.}

14.) 04 Mar 2019 21:16:21
Wow i don't know what commitment the club could give jones on playing time. Is that not dependant on form and the form if others?
Excuse my ignorance ed but if the club fail to meet those commitments does that mean breach of contract or perhaps trigger a clause of any kind?
Just wondering as i can't see how a player of Jones's standing within the squad could command guaranteed game time.
There should be a clause in his on him being fit and available😂.

15.) 05 Mar 2019 01:24:24
Thanks very much ed002 i really aporeciate the response and very fast. is there an updated sharkopod coming at some point? thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Not for a while I would think.}

16.) 06 Mar 2019 08:28:01
Morning Ed001/ Ed002,

Thanks as always for all detailed info.

Please forgive my ignorance/ naivety here, but, if a player is out injured for a long time, do the club claim it back through insurance or do they just have to suck it up and keep paying the basic wage? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It depends. Clubs rarely make insurance claims on players for injuries unless they are career ending or very lengthy. Many players are under insured because of the costs and many players are not insured at all.}

17.) 06 Mar 2019 11:45:13
Thank you for the swift and informative answer!

18.) 06 Mar 2019 12:08:18

Really interesting question.

Ed002 thanks for the response.

19.) 09 Mar 2019 10:40:01
Can someone please link me to where this stuff is about Pogba wanting to leave? I have tried searching but can’t find it. Just cannot work out why he would want to leave? Fans love him. He’s a main, if not THE main player. Etc.

{Ed002's Note - Search on Pogba.}



07 Dec 2017 20:50:23
Is it true that united are looking at sandro from juventus?


1.) 07 Dec 2017 21:07:38
Yes it said so in the daily fail🤡.

2.) 08 Dec 2017 09:00:50
Am Sure Ed 004 name dropped Sandro a few days ago.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 09:25:57
Heard Chelsea were favourites for him.

4.) 07 Dec 2017 23:53:55
Ed002 didn't bring him up in the sharkopod so I'd ignore it unless something's changed in which case Ed002 will say in the next 1! All eyes on rose i think, would be nice to see him come in during Jan but got to expect it to be a summer move if it's going to be.

5.) 08 Dec 2017 13:39:40
Duncan castles. Don't know if he's got any cred.

{Ed004's Note - I may have name dropped Sandro but I’ve no ‘inside information’. Just think he would be an excellent signing}

6.) 08 Dec 2017 16:34:03
Duncan Castles is very close to Jose. Recently wrote a book on him. He does a transfer podcast as well.

{Ed004's Note - Really hoping there is some truth in it. Valencia/Young and Sandro/Shaw are good wide options for the rest of the season}

7.) 08 Dec 2017 19:30:01
Can't see it happening. Think we going to have to plod on regarding left backs until the summer

What everyone thoughts on Dortmund Raphael Guerriero? Would anyone like to see him join and what position you have him playing?

8.) 09 Dec 2017 11:26:48
Wouldn't surprise me if both MU and Chelsea want either Sandro or Rose. There will of course be other targets too, however it seems the writing is on the wall for Danny Rose. He has planned his exit and Spurs want him gone. So if MU or another interested party can agree a deal with Levy, then he will leave Spurs. He hasn't played a great deal, but before his injury he was excellent and he has been decent from what I've seen recently when he's selected. If he signs then I think he will be a great addition, especially considering the style we play.



13 Nov 2017 17:50:00
Hey ed002,just wondering are you doing a man united sharkopod when you do the others this week? thanks as always.


{Ed002's Note - That is my plan.}

Hey ed002

Firstly thanks very much yet again for the latest info you have passed on. Just 2 quick questions if you get a chance to reply, you mentioned on the liverpool page united were looking at a striker on a free just wondering is that mertens? And is jude bellingham a genuine target for the summer? Thanks ed002 and thanks again for all the latest info.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Mertens. There is certainly interest in Bellingham but he would not be for the first team just yet.}

1.) 16 Feb 2020 12:50:14
ED002do you think United would buy him and loan him back to Birmingham as it would help his development?

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know if that is an option being considered.}

2.) 16 Feb 2020 17:04:39
Thanks ED002,

Do you think the club will look to target more homegrown players as a result of Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not a problem for MU right now, bit like all clubs there is a need to comply.}



10 Dec 2019 23:17:28
Thank you ed002 for the latest update as always 🙏 do you think olè will last in the job?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained that the club would rather not move him on at this time.}



27 Nov 2019 23:15:16
Could somebody please direct me to uniteds striker / forward targets that ed002 has so kindly mentioned before? thank you 🙏.


1.) 28 Nov 2019 05:45:18
I believe the interested targets are :
Strikers : Dembele, Timo Werner, Mandzukic, Haaland.
RW : Steven Bergwin, Jadon Sancho
May have missed few others.

2.) 28 Nov 2019 10:33:31
Moussa dembele is a target for January, juventus will offer mandzukic and Emre can plus cash for pogba, Madrid will offer bale plus cash for pogba, haaland is a target.

3.) 28 Nov 2019 11:39:44
NorthEast United FC will offer Gyan plus cash for pogba ;)



31 Oct 2019 23:42:49
Ed002 is it true that united are looking at kalvin phillips and emre can? thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Kalvin Phillips may have been watched but I would not expect anything to come of it - Can would be scraping the bottom of the barrel and talks are underway with another side about him.}

1.) 01 Nov 2019 10:57:33
Don't know much about Phillips. I have to say i'm not a big can fan. He is pretty average. Matic periera and fred are all equally as average. Our midfield options are very poor when everyone is available and even worse when we have an injury or 2.
Its an area that needs major surgery imo. Its been weak for years.



22 Jul 2019 23:19:45
Just want to say thanks ed002 for all the info as always its greatly appreciated by all of us 🙌

Just really shows how much of a mess the club is in 🤦‍♂️

You mentioned about olè ed002,do you see him lasting long? sounds like maguire and fernandes will be the next 2 in and after that anything could happen 🤷‍♂️

Do united still retain an interest in longstaff ed002?thanks as always 👍.


{Ed002's Note - (a) We will see how he doe. (b) Yes.}
