Rumours page on sky sports.

Sergio Ramos wants to move to United?

Using us to get a new contract again or some truth in this?

If you could help Ed’s that would be great.


{Ed002's Note - Sergio Ramos (CB) PSG wanted a January agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer but the player is apparently reluctant to commit. Real Madrid want to extend his contract but want to reduce the package he currently gets to help their quest to cut costs - if that gap can somehow be resolved it is the most likely solution. Interest from both the Far East and the Middle East is not attractive for the player. Whilst the Premier League would provide an interesting challenge for the player, at just about 35 years old with significant wage demands it makes little sense for the clubs. I am not aware of any approach from Manchester United and would expect them to look at a younger long term solution.}

Thank you Ed002 really appreciate you taking the time to come back to me.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 31 Jan 2021 13:23:18
Pau Torres is still our no1 CB target, although it looks like there will be very stiff competition from other top sides in Europe .

3.) 31 Jan 2021 14:07:08
Ed02 we're being linked with Jules Kounde, any truth to this in addition to White and Torres who you'd mentioned previously?

{Ed002's Note - Jules Kounde (CB) Sevilla rejected a significant offer from Manchester City last summer and Monchi has confirmed that Manchetser City remain keen still. He was recommended to Manchester United by an advisor but there has not been any approach just yet - and others seem more likely at this time. Real Madrid were the other side who were keen last summer and they are looking to add two CBs this summer with one agreed in principle, the other will be one of four on their shortlist which includes Jules Kounde. With one of those four likely not obtainable it would then come down to balancing the books with other sales and purchases.}

Hi Ed’s

Just seen that we are looking into the possibility of getting corentin tolisso any truth in this?

Thanks for your hard work aswell we all appreciate it.


{Ed002's Note - Corentin Tolisso (CM) Bayern Munich have made the player available for sale as they look to a shake up of the team and want to clear some out in the summer - and with Gretzka, Thiago and the up and coming Cuisance all playing in the same central midfield position, Tolisso is seen as surplus. Tolisso also had a serious injury issue last season but apparently all is well now - aside from niggling stuff. His representatives fielded several requests for loans from France and England in January but, like the agents of Thomas Muller and Jerome Boateng, he knew Bayern Munich would not be doing any business over the winter. There has been a discussion with one specific French side about the possibility of a summer move and the lady involved says they may just be interested if a suitable price was proposed given the injury history. There has also been a discussion with Napoli as a potential Fabian Ruiz replacement - but they are still sorting themselves out from their problems and have no immediate interest. If the price suits it is expected Arsenal will be approached to see if previous interest remains given the situation with Dani Ceballos - but right now they are heading in a different direction as well as they smart from financial mismanagement. A return to Lyon will no doubt have been discussed with the player but even if they let Houssem Aouar leave this coming summer the addition of the vesatile Bruno Guimaraes will already have covered that. Inter could add an option if money is OK there. He has additionally had surgery on his ankle which is keeping him out of the squad now the season has started again. I am not aware of an approach from Manchester United but he could be a cheaper option to the likes of Saul and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic if POgba were to leave.}



18 Jun 2019 14:43:23
Dunno if anyone has said this already and I know it’s sly sports but they’re reporting we’ve put a 36m bid in for youri tielemans.

Ed’s do you know if this is happening?

Thanks all.


{Ed002's Note - He was a target for Mr Mourinho and bereft of other ideas he has been of interest - I am not aware of any offer at this point in time.}

1.) 18 Jun 2019 17:00:20
I hope this one is true. Would instantly improve our midfield.

{Ed002's Note - By letting Pogba leave.}

2.) 18 Jun 2019 17:04:42
I hope Pogba leaves.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 17:48:07
Me too, instead of giving him more money just get rid of the guy already, he isn't that good. Sometimes i wonder how much Scholes would be worth in this crazy market. get energetic midfielders and most importantly people who want to be here.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 17:16:49

I hope Pogba leaves to be honest. He seems unhappy, doesn't want to be here and doesn't really provide a balanced midfield and limits us tactically. Certainly not the hardest worker on the pitch.

There is no point in keeping unhappy players who want to leave. I wish we followed a policy like Chelsea do in that they let unhappy players go and just try to get the best deal possible. They don't even seem worried about letting players go within the EPL.

Pogba's transfer fee and wages could be reinvested to bring in a couple of midfielders and build a much more balanced hard working midfield.

Are PSG interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that MU are picing him so high that the interested sides are going to step back. PSG have other preferences right now and they see hom as expensive.}

5.) 18 Jun 2019 18:49:44
Ed002, yeah if he’s Pogba’s replacement then great. I still think we’d need another midfielder on top of Tielemans or Bruno Fernandes if Pogba was to leave.
I’d like us to go for Doucouré from Watford.

{Ed002's Note - 12 a side next year then?}

6.) 18 Jun 2019 19:34:42
That improve our defence, probably.

7.) 18 Jun 2019 20:35:04
Just saw online Juventus put in bid for £140 million for Pogba
I don't know if I should laugh or cry?
I would take it if part of the deal would be to take Mr Sanchez off our books.

8.) 18 Jun 2019 22:52:34
Imagine pogba under saf, he'd be long gone, I like osg's transfer strategy, I just hope he can survive the bad times that are coming and improve his management, dark times are ahead for us, belief is what makes us strong and I believe osg will lead us if given the chance, pogba, Lukaku, martial, rojo, darmaian, get rid, smalling, Jones are united no matter there quality, young English and hungry is perfect way forward, what English lad doesn't want to play for United, sheer clear of raiolas players and find the next scholes Keane Neville Bruce pallister Irwin Cole sheringham giggs Beckham and a shearer who regrets what he could of had, Ferdinand the greatest defender in EPL history, vvd couldn't touch that boy in his prime, trophies say it all, even vidic should be laughing, our success is built on British players with a sprinkle of foreign magic, same as Liverpool's dominance in the 70s and 80s.

9.) 19 Jun 2019 00:01:21
Difficult to understand why United are targeting all of these ‘Mourinho targets’ when OGS has a different style to that of Jose. What is the plan? Surely there must have been some sort of arrangement on strategy when OGS was appointed to the managerial post. Baffling.

10.) 18 Jun 2019 19:55:11
002 I know you don’t like to speculate but can you see this situation being resolved? Surely it’s bad business to keep him, for reasons on both sides.

{Ed002's Note - MU should let him go for the best reasonable deal they can get and move on. It has to happen.}

11.) 19 Jun 2019 00:52:54
I hope Pogba leaves too.

12.) 19 Jun 2019 09:30:34
Fergie got rid of him. Enough said.

13.) 19 Jun 2019 09:41:05
Maze, I don't think it works like that. Ole and the other coaching staff will decide what they feel the squad needs, this will be be passed on to the chief scout and they will organise having players scouted to find players who fit the criteria.

The club builds up dossiers on many players. Players are in the main able to adapt and play in many different ways. When Ronaldo played for us, or Real Madrid, or Juventus or Portugal he has been asked to play different roles in different ways. As such it's not that surprising that the club are still interested in some of the players they were under Jose Mourinho.

However, currently the club have only signed one player Daniel James a player that was not of interest under Jose. So clearly there have been some changes.

But have the needs of the squad changed that much? We still need a commanding CB, we need more mobility in midfield, we are lacking a wide player who can go around the outside.

14.) 19 Jun 2019 07:18:25
Thank you Ed. Surely his position is untenable now.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to leave.}

15.) 19 Jun 2019 14:00:36

Completely agree with you. Just get the best deal and move on.

It would also allow us to move quickly for potential replacements like Rabiot and Tielemans instead of putting those on hold and risk losing out if we drag the Pogba situation too long and then end up losing Pogba and getting neither.

There is a very good argument to be made that we would be better off with Rabiot/ Longstaff, Tielemans and Bruno Fernandes / James Maddison in the squad instead of Pogba.

Similarly with Lukaku, are United pricing him out of a move as well? Reports have been coming out about Inter wanting to include Icardi/ Perisic and we aren't interested in either.

{Ed002's Note - MU will struggle to replace Lukaku so they know they must initially not look to sell.}

11 Dec 2021 11:38:31
So with this new style of play the targets we should be looking for need to be industrious

I’d be looking at Chiesa, verrati, ndidi and as a right back I do like the look of cash from Villa.


{Ed014's Note - personally not convinced they who you need and not sure industrious fits the bill but I know what you mean.

Bernardo Silva for me is the player that epitomises what the big clubs look for in a quality midfield player, obvious talent, hard work and a bit of a mean streak.

I’d also like to think with Dalot playing well that Rangnick could work with AWB and find a real player in there.

1.) 11 Dec 2021 12:24:29
Raphinha at leeds look a good fit as one of the attacking midfielders. High level of work rate, can beat his opponent 1 vs 1 and has an above average final ball which can be worked on.

That being said I assume there will be a long queue for his services after his club and international performanaces.

2.) 11 Dec 2021 12:36:43
We are overloaded with attackers.
Midfield is where we lack bite. Ragnick's targets like Amadou Haidara might be a real gem.

3.) 11 Dec 2021 14:04:45
Rafinha and Chiesa? After investing in at least 3-4 wingers in recent times? I think those are two players who may well be on the move to big Prem clubs but I don't think MU will be the destination for either of them.



14 Jun 2021 19:39:27
Only my thoughts but would anyone welcome the signing of ward- prowse if it came out?

Just can’t get over how he’s so good yet no one wants to give him a chance.


1.) 14 Jun 2021 19:48:41
He’s never really impressed me. He’s decent enough and takes a mean dead ball but we need to be aiming much higher I feel. Not really a queue to sign him is there?

2.) 14 Jun 2021 20:24:13
He’s awful. Apart from set pieces he offers nothing.

3.) 14 Jun 2021 23:42:11
Great dead ball delivery but he is not top class in his general game and I'm nit sure there is a lot more untapped potential. So it's a no from me. That said I do like his style and energy he gives it his all every game and is a really good player for Southampton and they rely on him. He is a players player but not quite at the top table.

4.) 15 Jun 2021 00:53:21
Awful is slightly harsh, he’s a good mid table premier league player and does have one attribute (set pieces) that gives him a bit of a edge, he’s not at the required level to be winning league titles though for me and that has to be the players we aim for.

5.) 15 Jun 2021 09:27:52
He's a solid fairly average mid-table player, who just so happens to have an excellent dead-ball delivery.

Personally I think Winks is better than him in just about everyway bar dead-balls.

Yet the overwhelming response to being linked with Winks was that he wasn't good enough.

Top teams can't afford to carry passengers for most of the match. Having a player who only really has value to a side in a specific area of the game which might happen half a dozen times per game just won't work at a side expecting to challenge for titles.

6.) 15 Jun 2021 10:01:37
Nail on the head there Ken.

7.) 15 Jun 2021 16:49:32
Decent player, good right foot, and a good attitude. But if we've got genuine aspirations to challenge for a title, I think we need to be looking a bit higher, and that's meant as no disrespect to a good EPL player.



05 Jun 2021 10:10:29
Not really transfer news so to speak but I wouldn’t mind United looking at buendia at Norwich. Looks very good, creative, both footed and an eye for a goal too. What’s peoples thoughts on him?


1.) 05 Jun 2021 10:43:08
Shappy might have a word or a thousand to say about him 😁.

2.) 05 Jun 2021 10:47:19
Me too. I think he would make a good addition to the squad, as a rotation option at CAM or RW.

We still need a first choice RW independent of this though IMO.

3.) 05 Jun 2021 10:51:49
Great little player, looks ready for a step up👍.

4.) 05 Jun 2021 14:36:30
Consistent for Norwich now for a couple of years. He probably deserves a good move. He will do well i think wherever he goes. Probably needs to move to a stepping stone club before he get a chance at one of the really big guns imo.

5.) 05 Jun 2021 15:11:34
Would have him rathe than Dan James.

6.) 05 Jun 2021 18:52:16
He is going to Aston Villa as reports says.

7.) 05 Jun 2021 18:59:21
Just saw that Herrera 30m is a steal for him IMO.

8.) 05 Jun 2021 19:10:48
I think we have made the right decision and I stand by the board to not go after such players.
We should save our money as all our tactics mean we have to provide width only from the left. We can slot in any player on the RW as the primary job of a right winger is to get the ball and pass it back to a crowded midfield.
We could instead extend a contract to mata who has had loads of experience playing RW and will be like a new signing for us. Ole at the wheel.

9.) 05 Jun 2021 19:51:39
Rohanarora - The squad needs improving in depth too, not just the first 11. I think Buendia would have been a great signing as a backup/ rotation option at RW and CAM.

He may not be a traditional winger, but he puts a lot of good quality passes and crosses into the box from wide, and he has far better vision than our current wide options, perfect for picking up the movement of players like Cavani or Van De Beek, taking some of that pressure off Bruno.

10.) 05 Jun 2021 19:52:42
Buendia is apparently close to joining Aston Villa beating competition from Arsenal.

11.) 05 Jun 2021 21:26:38
Buendia joining Villa for £33m.

12.) 05 Jun 2021 22:36:45
A good signing for Villa and for Buendia I think, Villa seem to be slowly building a good team and gradually improving it each season. Nice to see because Villa is another potentially big club that can be in the mix for the spaces behind the biggest teams. Each team that competes and can take points off big 6 only adds to the excitement of the EPL.

I wonder with Villa is JT learning the management trade in the right way getting a good grounding and experience before striking out on his own. I rate Dean Smith highly, I thought he looked good at Brentford.

13.) 05 Jun 2021 22:36:54
Gone to Villa - found his level.

14.) 06 Jun 2021 15:23:14
Eric, You are right, he will now play with Grealish a player who is very much on the same level as Buendia.

15.) 06 Jun 2021 19:17:55
Nonsense Shappy. I know you’ve got a thing for this guy, but the fact Villa have got him says all I need to know.



12 Aug 2020 19:05:11
So after reading what the ED’s have said and people putting their thoughts across for a right wing spot how about we look at buendia from Norwich. Looked good is young and created a lot of chances probably cost us about 20m rather than 200m.

I’m all for Sancho but if we don’t get him then would people be okay with this choice.


1.) 12 Aug 2020 19:18:21
Tommy Robinson for me.

2.) 12 Aug 2020 19:23:21
Shappy, is that you?

3.) 12 Aug 2020 19:40:02
Honestly I’ve seen nothing from Buendia to suggest he’s anywhere near a top half player. There are levels, if we can’t get Sancho we need to target players such as Chiesa for example. For me now is the time to be aggressive in the market and really try and make the team much stronger.

4.) 12 Aug 2020 20:08:08
Have you really seen Chiesa? He really isn’t that great. Not sure how he’s become the ‘go to’ name in the Sancho debate.

5.) 12 Aug 2020 20:39:26
It's a no from me.

{Ed047's Note - but to which one though, Chiesa, Buendia, Shappy, Tommy Robinson or Sancho? 🤷‍♂️

6.) 12 Aug 2020 20:51:31
No thanks to buendia.

7.) 12 Aug 2020 21:12:32
Burnt is a good shout😂.

8.) 12 Aug 2020 21:45:44
Chiesa Would have been a great shout and a lot cheaper but he does not want to leave Italy.

9.) 12 Aug 2020 22:04:58

10.) 12 Aug 2020 22:05:30
Or train Dan James properly.

11.) 13 Aug 2020 03:25:37
Spenno I’m glad you’ve said it. Chiesa is a decent player but he’s not nearly as good as Sancho. Also Sancho is English and the Premier League is much more like the Bundesliga than the Italian league so he will most probably adapt far quicker. If we can’t get Sancho I think Coman, Neres, Adama Traore would all be far better options than Chiesa.

12.) 13 Aug 2020 06:09:14
Dalot for RW.

13.) 13 Aug 2020 07:18:09
David Neres would be a good shout. Can cover all across the front 3. I think we have had previous interest aswel.

14.) 13 Aug 2020 08:11:22
if we are to go for anyone else if we can't get sancho, i would go for adama traore. if he can work more on his end product he could be frightening.

15.) 13 Aug 2020 08:29:13
What happened to Dybala move from last season - would be awesome on that right hand side forward role.

16.) 13 Aug 2020 10:00:07
I hope we get sancho as he can play either side, if added to our frontline now it would be then any 3 from 4 and we should be able to keep them fresh .
In the thread I notice people are throwing names out as who they would personally consider as an alternative if the sancho deal is not to happen .
Il throw a name in Alain maximin he plays mainly on the left but he's right footed and does get used on the right aswell . he's really quick and really skillfull and reminds me a lot of traore . Fans love watching this guy and he gives the any 3 from 4 scenario as he plays left aswell .
Maybe we need to see him playing more on the right but was just a thought . The guy isn't really a move inside and join the striker type he looks more of a terrorise the fb type.

17.) 13 Aug 2020 10:41:56
id like the club to sign sancho failing that a loan with option to buy dembele at a fixed price if he proves himself would be my choice.
Kingsly coman would have been a great option but ed002 said that ship has sailed i think.

Hudson odi looks like a top talent but there may be baggage i don't know, he has signed a long contract in jan so unlikely with Willian and pedro leaving.
Traore is another futile chase and I'm sue again ed002 said we've shown no interest. He is unplayable at times.

Buendia chiesa tommy robinson don't appeal to me if James was coached well and improves can be much more effective than them imo.
Grealish is another target ed002 says. He wouldn't be my first choice nor would he be my last he is versatile and gives quality cover for a few positions he would improve the squad no doubt.

Im very relaxed about signings this summer. With so much uncertainty i wouldn't be criticle if we didn't spend. We need new players but we just have to wait and see. Papers and click sites will have a field day until then. I quite enjoy all the speculation fake news and reading all the opinions coming from the guys on here. Some mad names get mentioned imo.

Lots of people saying Chelsea will be great im not so sure it will be easy to knit a new front 3 together that easily that said i do like werner.
I think spurs will do better and i think arsenal could take giant strides forward if they secure a good cb and no6.

I think liverpool won't do quite as well and i think city will do better. 90 points will win the league imo next season.
Plus 20 points is what united chelsea arsenal and spurs will be targeting. That puts them in the mix up until april. Liverpool start as naive favourites along with sours and arsenal they will have the best pre season prep and rest time.
Looking forward to the new season after hopefully 2 more games this season.

18.) 13 Aug 2020 11:10:06
Tommy robinson certainly makes it known his position is right wing. Don't think he is allowed on some social media sites anymore so at least that is one less distraction.

19.) 13 Aug 2020 11:34:24
What haired if he has to cover in the left? He is very uncomfortable on the left.
Due to his inflexibility i think we should leave him alone😂😂😂.

20.) 13 Aug 2020 12:44:05
Poor Tommy. His only crime was, well, breaking the law.

21.) 13 Aug 2020 13:29:00
Hey ken, you’ve left out Arsenal, we will be a different animal next season.

Not saying we will win the PL.

22.) 13 Aug 2020 14:38:09
Malaga, in all fairness though haven't Arsenal fans been saying that since 2005?

23.) 13 Aug 2020 14:44:57
Read it again malaga😂.



24 Jan 2020 14:08:54
tell you what this relegation battle we're in is tough to watch. let's hope we can make that 40 point threshold in order to stay up.


1.) 24 Jan 2020 14:59:06
If Martial gets injured, we may well end up in relegation scrap.

The problem is, the transfer windows shuts, no signings means were up the creek without a paddle.

Perhaps this needed to make the Glazers realise that Woodward and co aren't running the club properly.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 15:37:25
If Martial gets injured it might just be a blessing in disguise, he lacks everything you need to be a top player. he's amazing 1 game then mediocre the next 5.
I would much rather play Greenwood who actually knows where the back of the net is.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:40:04
Herbie- it won't be a blessing disguised or otherwise

united offer very little attacking threat as it is.

Everyone has their own likes and dislikes for players which is fair enough but I do feel when people judge martial they judge him against the wrong types of player.

Martial isn't a number 9 like a Vardy, a play on the shoulder, fox in the box style 9.

He is more a false 9 a bit more like a firminio, a link man, if we played 2 up top he would be comparable to a 10 compared to firminio martial is doing well and doing the role he is asked to do.

Sancho is world class based on numbers he’s produced in one of the top European leagues and champions league. He’s up there with world class players so that would mean he’s world class. He didn’t play for England because our manager is too defensive to try and play our attacking players.

Saul got dropped towards end of last year because he wasn’t playing well so why would we want him too just be mediocre with us?

Do I think we can challenge with this team yes. We improved right wing and we have improved centre back. Are the centre mid options needing improved possibly but let’s not become spoilt we have two world class players added this year and I’d be okay with going into the season with the team as it is.

They could look at it as an opportunity.

The world cup is in Qatar and would need to be played in the winter months as it is too hot in the summer. therefore by finishing the season when they can and then moving the next season on a few months it would be beneficial to them.

Say they won't be able to play football til july there is 10 premier league games per team, 3 games from the fa cup, 6 from europa league,6 from champions league. 25 games for teams still in the competitions stated.

even if they played 2 games a week your still looking at 3 months which would take you to end of october. You then have the off season so that would effectively move the new season to january or february depending on time they allow for offseason.

Then that off season becomes available for the world cup!

BOOM instant money going to FIFA, UEFA and all the FA's.

I think the best option for us is ten Haag, he built an Ajax team that deserved to get to the final over spurs and they almost got there. His team then got cherry picked so he had to build again, which he has done and once again his team is thriving. He’s a great tactician, plays attacking football, bloods youngsters, turns mediocre players from other teams into high performing players and is ruthless when it comes to transfers in and out.

Think it would be worth bring van der sar as Cheif executive and overmars in as DoF so that you have the three from Ajax working together.

That’s my take on it.

Ole can’t come out and say lingard is not part of his plans as that drives his price down.

I think DVDB will play more this year he’s put in some serious work to bulk up and climatise to the premier league and I don’t think it’s gone unnoticed.

I think he still had a lot of dead wood that aren’t good enough to clear. The games that your implying we need an attacking change, we have had all the players capable of making an impact on the pitch already. We need depth before ole can actually make the changes you want him to. We have improved and play a lot better but you can’t compare it too when we had fergie as the team and manager were all world class.

Remember fergie took 3 years before it clicked for him.

I’d like Santo from wolves. He plays very good football and also looks like he gets his players to run through walls.
