I'm seeing rumours that Romero is joining Aston Villa. Any truth in it Ed's? It wouldn't surprise me as he's now 3rd choice and deserves much better than that.


{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with before, Aston Villa are very keen.}

1.) 02 Sep 2020 20:12:33
There are rumours linking Sergio with a move to Everton as well. I don't think we will be able to keep all of De Gea, Henderson and Romero happy so a move where he is first choice will be good for him I would say.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 18:21:15
Surprised Dortmund weren't interested in Sergio, thought they were looking for some decent competition for Burki.



27 May 2020 20:58:47
Hello Ed's,

Has the club shown any interest in Berardi? Also who are the back up targets incase the Sancho deal doesn't materialise. I think if he wants to play elsewhere then we should walk away from the deal. As you have already told us the fee with everything attached to it will be astronomical and could be a big mistake.

Thanks a lot and take care 👍.


{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in Domenico Berardi.

Ferran Torres (RW/LW) considered as a potential Jadon Sancho replacement but likely priced out of a move to Borussia Dortmund - will end up at Real Madrid or Barcelona in all probability at some point. But, if Salah were to depart Liverpool he could well become an option for them but for now that is not the case. The player has made no secret of his desire to join Barcelona at some point. Valencia have a replacement lined up but the €100M asking price would need to drop to make a transfer anywhere viable this summer. Juventus has enquired after his availability but would need to make sales to fund a move. A third party has suggested to Manchester United that Ferran Torres would be a better option to Jadon Sancho as the deal would be far, far cheaper for them.
Federico Chiesa (RW/F) much more affordable than Sancho but Inter remain keen although talks are now on hold. Fiorentina are willing to sell in the summer.
Isaac Lihadji (RW) Not be interested in joining MU and moving elsewhere.

1.) 27 May 2020 21:58:30
Thanks very much for your reply Ed.
Has there been further developments regarding Sanchez? Will the club give him a chance or are they looking for a club to take him.

{Ed002's Note - The club are desparate to get him off the books because of his wages - and he is no kiddie now. They will offer him about but finding takers might be very difficult.}

2.) 27 May 2020 22:41:38
Yeah I thought as much Ed. I heard a ridiculous rumour that we had offered Sanchez in a potential deal for Sancho. I can't see them being interested in that one bit. I think we will really struggle to get him to another club. There's obviously been no interest in him I take it by your response.

3.) 28 May 2020 15:54:44
Could sanchez be used as a back up to martial if the ighalo deal is unable to be completed.

Ideally would like to see him move on but we've got a need for a backup striker and he has played there before.

4.) 28 May 2020 16:24:38
£400k a week is not what you want to pay back ups I guess DSG.

5.) 28 May 2020 21:51:16
Pretty sure he's paid around 100K.

6.) 30 May 2020 08:45:27
Pretty sure he’s not.



30 Jul 2019 01:32:31
Di marzio reporting that Juventus would accept 20/ 30 million euros plus Lukaku for Dybala 🤔. What's everyone making of that?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 05:24:43
The fact that we would prefer Costs AND we would have to convince (offer stupid money) Dybala to move to United means I don’t think it will happen.

2.) 30 Jul 2019 06:38:36
Is he not saying utd are pushing for Dybala and everything now will be down to him to make the swap happen?

Dybala with all the talents has still not sure if fits in well.

3.) 30 Jul 2019 06:51:39
I've seen figures of Dybala wanting 175k a week. Whether that's true or not I don't know.

4.) 30 Jul 2019 07:38:17
I thought we don't do swaps .
I really can't make my mind up on dybala, talented lad but very up and down form wise I'm just not sure his style suits the epl .

5.) 30 Jul 2019 07:56:33
Hope we have a plan for Dybala.
Otherwise we shouldn't recruit just for the sake of signing.

However, he is a top player with his peak years ahead.
A player capable of producing magic and making something out of nothing.

6.) 30 Jul 2019 07:56:42
*Costa sorry.

7.) 30 Jul 2019 08:22:22
If he wants to come I'm all for it but don't want another di Maria situation on our hands where he's coming just for money.
Stay well clear if that's the situation.

8.) 30 Jul 2019 09:28:25
The worry is does Dybala want to play for United? By all accounts he want's to stay in Turin and fight for his place. This stinks of the Angel Di Maria situation again. We are making the same stupid mistakes again.

9.) 30 Jul 2019 11:47:35
As a player why would you want to continue at a club that obviously doesn't want him.

If that was me and I was getting offered to another club in my mind I'm not wanted.

10.) 30 Jul 2019 12:31:08
Is he the same Dybala who scored only 4 goals last term and was benched most of the time as his defensive contribution was minimal? He is not a right winger for sure and we usually don't play with a #10, and if we were to play with a #10 i would prefer Mata to play there.

11.) 30 Jul 2019 12:42:46
Mata's too slow these days. We only kept him on because we lack experience. Dybala had a poor season because he was pushed out to accommodate one of the best players of all time and the best player currently playing the game.

12.) 30 Jul 2019 12:54:07
Why would he go for Dybala and Bruno Fernandes?

13.) 30 Jul 2019 21:59:55
Not sure about Dybala, especially if Ole expects him to press. Not to mention that he looks a bit too frail at times.
Re: Bruno, I can see him being comfortable in the Mata role or else in a 4 4 2 diamond.



06 Jul 2019 21:35:14
Have we made an offer for Milinkovic-Savic Ed's? Or is it nonsense. Thank you 👍.


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



25 Jun 2019 00:06:36
I have seen rumours circulating that Bruno Fernandes will not be joining United and will be joining Liverpool instead. Obviously don't know if there's any truth behind it but it will be a blow considering he's been on the verge of joining us for weeks if you listen to the media.


1.) 25 Jun 2019 12:29:48
I think the lesson here is to not listen to the media, we will sign a few players, hopefully ones that we want, all the guff you read in papers and on Twitter is exactly that, people filling pages.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 17:09:03
He would be a great signing for Liverpool. He’s just what their side is missing. If they aren’t trying for him, they should be. It’s a frustrating window so far, trying to stay positive.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 06:58:00
Total agree it is frustrating and drives me mad!
Like a drug you can not control and you look for that signing to feed the addiction
When you see other clubs signing players and we don't!
But we know that that glimmer of hope we sign that star player to bring the club forward!

Dan James off to Leeds then. I wish him the best for the future and hope he does very well there. It does seem as if we are trying to make room in the squad for a midfielder to come in. I think the performance of fred and matic in the Southampton game and fred's performance yesterday proves we desperately need a midfielder.

Let's then lads 🤞.


1.) 30 Aug 2021 20:23:26
If the fee is anywhere near the £30M quoted then we are mugging them. And apparently West a ham only offered £15M for Lingard.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 07:46:58
What’s wrong with mugging Leeds?



27 May 2021 11:22:17
Well firstly I'd like to say I'm absolutely devastated with the result. We make no substitutions til the 100th minute and when we did it was a baffling one to say the least. When Cavani equalised that was the time to seize control of the game yet Ole did nothing. As horrible as it sounds we are not going to win things under him we will get good results here and there but time and time again when we need a result most there is no plan and it ends in failure.

Also on De gea I thought he was so weak on them penalties I was pulling my hair out. I've had the feeling for a while now that we need a new goalkeeper all together if we are going to be successful. It's no coincidence our best sides have been with Schmeichel and Van der sar in the team as they were more than Goalkeepers they were such a huge presence aswell.

It's awful to lose the final game and especially a cup final as it seems to hang over u all through the close season. Very very weak from Ole last night though and the in game management was amateur to say the least. Absolutely gutted guys and hope everyone is well ❤.


1.) 27 May 2021 11:38:12
Clubs a laughing stock from top to bottom. Get used to it boys as nothing will change. We’re the clown owners even there last night. Poor second rate manager who is totally out of his depth. Overrated players and overpaid. The list goes on. Anyway it can’t get any worse oh wait there’s a champions league final on Saturday.

2.) 27 May 2021 12:26:50
Damon86 it was a horrible way to lose, but DeGea has given his best years to your club and during the days when you guys were really abysmal he literally kept you guys in the top half of the table on his own. Perhaps his time at the club has come to an end and personally I would have put Henderson in goal for the game but DeGea has been an amazing player for your lot and what he’s done for you club should not be tossed aside like that.

3.) 27 May 2021 12:57:54
De gea hasn't been an amazing player for us for about 3 years or even longer now. Regardless of that anyway the game shouldn't have been allowed to reach penalties we should be winning the game no excuses. The buck stops with ole. Simple as that.

4.) 27 May 2021 13:00:51
when any player i don't care who it is is not performing to the level required for a sustained period they need to be sold. Thanks for the memories but get out your not what we need anymore. No room for any sentiment at all. No loyalty should be extended beyond their useful life a a player.

5.) 27 May 2021 13:11:30
I have to agree with you there Ken. A lot of fans have said De gea didn't seem bothered 🤷‍♂️.

6.) 27 May 2021 13:39:43
I'm not just saying ddg its any player Damon mate.

7.) 27 May 2021 15:40:19
Yeah definitely you can't live off what you did in the past as a player. You need to be ruthless in this game in order to be the best.



09 May 2021 17:33:24
Hello Ed's,

Which position within the team is seen as the main priority for strengthening in the transfer window?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I would think a GK, possibly a back up RB, a CB, a CM and a versatile forward.}

1.) 09 May 2021 20:20:45
Johnstone Varane Laimer and Neto/ Sancho would make me happy. Add Pogstay and Cavani that would be a good summer
For fantasy I would replace Fred with Bissouma. Don’t see it happening though.

2.) 10 May 2021 12:01:53
Ed002 - that's a pretty expensive shopping list if going for quality in all though positions - wouldn't for a moment disagree that its needed but could you think the megabucks could/ will be available after the last 18 months?
I suppose that a few million could be offset by sales as we have a lot of players not getting minutes on big pay deals.

{Ed002's Note - Well at least 2 of the 4 first team GKs are leaving in the summer and even if they promote one then they will still need one. If either of the other two leave then the club will need to look at the higher end. TFM left without being replaced and I am told by someone close to the situation that there is no suitable replacement in the U23s. I expect at least Jones to depart and the stand out youngster Lukasz Bejger has gone. So A decent CB is needed - and that might be the big spend of the summer. In midfield something needs to happen with regards vDB, Lingard, Mata and PP. So I can see an addition. The club need to see if the two youngsters who arrived last summer meet their RW needs or if they need to return to screwing around over Sancho or looking again at their huge list of other options. The club will look to keep Cavani to save money on buying a replacement - but that might be a false economy.}

3.) 10 May 2021 13:12:30
Cheers Ed002- makes more sense after you fill in the background thanks- totally agree re cavani - can't wait for the sharkapod going to be a very interesting summer window.



05 Feb 2020 14:28:29
Who's idea was it to bring Ole in Ed's? Was fergie the driving force behind it?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - It is not someone you would know.}

1.) 05 Feb 2020 19:10:42
Nope, it was mine and GDS's idea. We made a proposal to the board with our "vision" of a bright future with a manager who's greatest managerial achievement was scoring a goal and doing his knees in celebrating it.

Me and GDS are kind of a big deal behind the scenes at United. But if you guys keep pushing for Ole to get sacked we're going to look pretty stupid.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 20:14:44
Oh dear 🤦‍♂️😂😂.

3.) 05 Feb 2020 20:17:50

4.) 05 Feb 2020 20:23:56
Lolll 😂😂 I don't think the original poster was aiming at anyone in particular but he was rather questioning the setup at United.

5.) 05 Feb 2020 20:47:24
Exactly Singh you are correct.

I'm a little concerned for Shappy's well being at the moment with that crazy outburst 😂😂😂.

6.) 05 Feb 2020 23:10:36
"But if you guys keep pushing for Ole to get sacked we're going to look pretty stupid. "
Already do.

7.) 05 Feb 2020 23:43:24
It was funny as hell.

8.) 06 Feb 2020 11:29:00
Haha Shappy 😂 classic.



28 Jan 2020 16:24:35
Calm down people sly have been more wrong than anyone on incomings at United this window. Now they have actually reported this about Barcelona I am more confident than ever we will sign him. They've got it completely wrong on the Fernandes deal saying it was all but done they chat a lot of nonsense. Got to ask yourself but the deal for Barcelona means loaning him out for 18 months he's 25 years old it seems a bit strange to do a deal like that to sign another player? I'm not convinced and think we will push on with a deal as this will give us a kick up the arse.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 17:34:08
Sure Valencia in talks with Alcacer return on loan.

Selling Rodrigo and getting Fernando's would be great business for Valencia.

Then Barcelona get a 27 year old who is already equipped to play on league once loan finished.

2.) 28 Jan 2020 18:13:15
Forget Fernandes what is our manager playing at?!

Mutiny is knocking at the door. Protests are planned for the weekend. We have a mountain to climb tomorrow night and Ole finally unveils his master plan.
Alexis Sanchez!

3.) 28 Jan 2020 19:52:49
I would say my predictions are not looking a bad shout at the moment. I could smell a rat straight away with the deal with Barcelona. Didn't sound realistic but here's hoping and let's finally have something to be happy about after all the doom and gloom.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 20:13:31
That's why I have serious issues with sky sports news being a sports news broadcaster and also a betting company.
Wonder how much was lumped on Bruno to barca.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 21:03:55
Just ignore them. And every other, 'in the know' source. Transfers will happen whether fans stamp their feet or not. I understand we live in a world where people demand instant and constant updates. Personally, I don't feel the need to have a blow by blow account of every possible detail of every possible transfer. When they happen, they happen.

6.) 28 Jan 2020 21:09:48
Exactly I checked the odds and we drifted to 5/ 2 with Barcelona clear favourites at 5/ 4. A couple of hours later then Barcelona are out to 8/ 1 and we are 1/ 16 on. I felt confident as soon as Sky broke the news of barcelona being in talks.

Romero should have been given a go at number one. De gea is allover the place pretty much every game. Maguire, Lindelof and De gea is not a good mix and they are awful together to be honest. I can't see how we can keep both keepers happy either. We've handled this so bad it's unreal ED02 is spot on when he says we are run by amateurs. Absolutely clueless!

We can't rely on Cavani for longer than a game or two so that's a ridiculous shout. As good as he is he misses a hell of a lot of games through injury. 9 appearances all season I believe in all competitions.
