Hi all,
Eds - is the Sancho deal dead? The mixed reports in the media are driving me mad!

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - It is going nowhere right now.}


1.) 15 Sep 2020 13:47:01
Ed, thanks for your reply. Is the media representation of this deal (to your knowledge) fair? Is it one step forward one step backwards?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the media have said I am afraid.}


2.) 15 Sep 2020 13:54:04
Ed002 do you think Dortmund will sell in this window if utd pay up?

{Ed002's Note - They are not intending to and there have been discussions about options next summer already.}


3.) 15 Sep 2020 14:15:11
Ed, have United seriously started considering other alternatives?

Or will they postpone Sancho's pursuit to next year considering the huge finances involved.

{Ed002's Note - They have alternatives as I have previously explained.}


4.) 15 Sep 2020 14:17:00
Thanks for the info Ed002, another vintage performance from the geniuses incharge.


5.) 15 Sep 2020 14:45:59
Is a deal salvageable Ed?

{Ed002's Note - It is what it is.}


6.) 15 Sep 2020 16:10:13
Its a shambles, however as ed02 has staed before the price was baulked at by every other club. The amateruish part by united is k ow Dortmunds position and still messing around with the transfer. They should have paid up 5 weeks ago or moved onto alternatives then! My only hope for this club going forward is the Glazers selling (will this happen any time soon? ) and getting real football people at the club.


7.) 15 Sep 2020 19:09:25
United's Chief Negotiator tends to wait to the last week of a transfer window to try and get the best possible deal. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, Dortmund know there will be more suitors next year and are happy to wait. I wouldn't expect any movement at least for another two weeks.


 

 

07 Sep 2020 16:55:55
Few reports suggesting the obstacles have been overcome in United's pursuit of Sancho and a deal could be struck this week.
Ed, could this still happen?

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United know what they have to do,}


1.) 07 Sep 2020 17:31:54
Stump up the cash dude.


2.) 07 Sep 2020 18:58:03
Sounds like progress then Ed! Thanks again.


3.) 09 Sep 2020 10:35:18
Sounds exactly the same situation as 6 weeks ago tbh KG.

Pay the price or walk away.


4.) 09 Sep 2020 11:42:46
Yeah, it's not really progress when the situation is exactly the same as it was weeks ago.


 

 

25 Aug 2020 13:27:05
Credible ITK saying United have bid £85 million for Sancho with £25 million due in instalments. A bid Dortmund Would accept. Here we go again, more rubbish or finally is this happening?

KingGiggsy

1.) 25 Aug 2020 13:42:50
I don’t think it’s a credible ITK at all.


2.) 25 Aug 2020 13:43:59
I read this a few hours ago too. I'm sure it's rubbish but we live in hope.


3.) 25 Aug 2020 14:00:28
From what ED002 has said, Dortmund set a price. It’s really high. United believed they could get the player for cheaper. Made a fool of themselves, and are now looking at alternatives (Costa, Brooks) with Grealish more likely to be our big money signing.


4.) 25 Aug 2020 19:41:41
Credible and ITK in the same sentence? A first surely.
I hope a Sancho deal is done for obvious reasons. And not least as his plane has been taxiing for a good 3 weeks now. But we just do not seem to have the money for such a mega signing. We reportedly had £90m in cash in the bank when C. V. hit and accessed £140m of our £150m revolving credit facility to support us through the C.V. Appreciate Eds etc don't like going into the finances but that doesn't seem to suggest we are going into this transfer window all guns blazing to add the 3 or 4 quality players as a minimum we know we need. I strongly suspect we will have a net spend of £50-60m this summer. So a lot going out the door if Sancho is to come in. Hope I an wrong!


5.) 25 Aug 2020 19:51:57
When Dortmund set their deadline, they weren't messing about.


6.) 26 Aug 2020 01:06:31
Goldbridge at the wheel that’s how farcical this club has become.


7.) 26 Aug 2020 20:17:02
Wow, a bit extreme their Stiv, we haven't fallen quite THAT far yet!


 

 

15 Aug 2020 23:49:02
Another twist in the Sancho situation.
Sancho is allegedly training on his own at Dortmund for the second sequential day.
Coincidently (! ) Dortmund are on the verge of signing a versatile winger from Madrid on a 2 year loan deal.
Could this be about to happen?!

KingGiggsy

1.) 16 Aug 2020 00:42:14
dont see what the hype is he has done nothing to make me jump out of my seat.


2.) 16 Aug 2020 03:39:02
He is not the only training alone, Delaney and Dahoud are training separate from others.


3.) 16 Aug 2020 10:13:46
It's pre-season for them, some players have personalised training schedules due to knocks/ niggling injuries.


 

 

04 Aug 2020 11:08:11
Eds, any truth that we are also in discussions for Gabriel?

Thanks.

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Lille didn't want to sell in January although Arsenal pushed - the player has signed a new contract, but Arsenal opted to sign Mari - and are overrun with CBs and also have Saliba joining, opted to extend David Luiz and have Holding fit in addition to at least four other – so they can be discounted. Lazio have made their interest known as the seek a replacement for Luiz Felipe (CB) but Gabriel is not their first choice - although their first choice may well be heading elsewhere. Napoli know that they may well sell Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) in the summer and have an interest in the player but won't do anything until they are sure KK is to be sold - which could prove to be a very difficult task without a significant drop in the asking price. Southampton and Everton have both sent scouts to watch the player with Everton notifying Lille that they are very interested in taking the player in the summer – but there has been no “done deal” as many of the Everton fans think and it would take a significant sales pitch to see him make a move to a club with no European football. However, the Everton interest remains. Chelsea and Spurs have both looked and Chelsea fans have, like the Everton fans, convinced themselves a deal has already been done. In reality, he is not be top of the list of replacements have for any of the existing CBs leave although Chelsea have accepted that their two preferred choices. Spurs have a bigger problem in that they have an aging defensive squad supplemented by players who are only perhaps borderline good enough. Spurs have other options they are looking at but could prioritise Gabriel and have spoken with Lille. Prior interest of PSG was thought to have gone but with their financial issues limiting their ability to spend without sales - but it is back. Real Madrid have half a dozen CBs ahead of Gabriel Magalhaes but they are all too expensive so he becomes an option but they need significant sales before they can buy and have already put off their two major signings to next year – so I think they too can be discounted as they are also constrained by the “foreigner” rule in Spain. There is significant interest in the player and Lille say they have spoken with five sides who are verbally willing to pay the asking amount, but that list does not include Manchester United and they say firm bids have only been made via his agents. However, his agents who have a large number of Brazilian players on their books only have one player signed to an English side and took the opportunity to raise the issue of Gabriel with other sides whilst visiting London – and that includes Manchester United. I understand that the meeting took place in London without OGS present, but those present found the meeting encouraging. Everton need now to offer an acceptable amount to Lille and sell their project to the player. The player knows where he wishes to move to, and that is to join Osimhen at Napoli – but they won’t commit without an understanding being reached over Koulibaly.}

Great info, thanks as always Ed.

Eds,
Sancho to United a done deal?

KingGiggsy

1.) 10 Sep 2020 23:02:33
Yep was done and on Utd's twitter last week where have you been?


2.) 10 Sep 2020 23:09:43
According to twitter YES 🤣.


3.) 11 Sep 2020 07:08:32
Are you aware that agreements can be signed before the club makes an official announcement? Clearly not.
Several sources now reporting that a deal has been struck and all that awaits is Dortmund finding a suitable replacement. Don’t shoot the messenger, I thought this was a rumours site?


4.) 11 Sep 2020 07:23:25
Wrong. This is a banter page. Rumours are elsewhere 🤣.


5.) 11 Sep 2020 08:16:59
Apologies, didn’t realise the domain name of the site had changed.


6.) 11 Sep 2020 08:26:22
Get over yourself lol 😂
If one is to be pedantic one would point out that you didn’t post a rumour, albeit on the banter page, you asked a question as per the punctuation.


7.) 11 Sep 2020 09:42:18
And then got annoyed when he got banter back 😂.


8.) 11 Sep 2020 12:18:47
If Sancho deal is very close, it will be the talk of the town.


9.) 11 Sep 2020 13:29:01
It will be announced on the stock exchange first when it happens.


10.) 11 Sep 2020 18:57:32
Not sure I see it happening but who knows. hopefully we get at least a couple in. It’s going to be a long season and squad depth will be very important so we need as much quality as possible.


 

 

30 Aug 2020 15:12:24
Ed,
I'm dreaming that the club will sign Sancho, Van de Beek, Grealish and possibly a CB.
Am I being unrealistic?

KingGiggsy

1.) 30 Aug 2020 15:43:17
Yes, you are dreaming.

I suspect the club will sign Grealish and a cheap RW option.


2.) 30 Aug 2020 16:30:01
Probably a cheap RW who's primary position is Cam or Lw.


3.) 30 Aug 2020 16:39:39
I think the three named players all together is unrealistic, yes. vdB, Sancho and a defender would be an excellent (and achievable) summer.


4.) 30 Aug 2020 16:52:49
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas - but it's years since I saw one.


 

 

18 Aug 2020 12:50:37
Eds, is there interest from ...................

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - Wrong page.}


 

 

13 Aug 2020 10:54:46
I cannot wait to see Sancho lining up alongside Marital, Rashford, Bruno and Greenwood next season.
Also looking forward to the look on non-United fans faces when the deal is completed.

KingGiggsy

1.) 13 Aug 2020 12:52:46
Where does Greenwood play? Sub supposedly?


2.) 13 Aug 2020 13:29:33
Patrick 4 player for 3 positions. Lots of games for everyone. James backs up the 4.


3.) 13 Aug 2020 19:43:54
You seem positive the deal is happening King Giggsy. I'm really not so sure it will go ahead. The price is ridiculous and way over the top. Unless it comes down 20 million at least I don't see it happening. Wages and agent fees seem to be a problem aswell as the transfer fee. All in an extortionate deal which ED02 has indeed told us.


 

 

04 Jul 2020 11:10:37
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.
Rumours that alongside agreeing the Sako deal with Arsenal, the agent of Sancho has also agreed personal terms with United? Any truth to this Ed?
Obviously unless a transfer fee can be agreed, nothing will happen but encouraging signs of true.

Thanks.

KingGiggsy

{Ed002's Note - Try searching or reading the posts.}


1.) 04 Jul 2020 12:04:28
Personally speaking I’d love us to upgrade Luke Shaw with Saka.


2.) 04 Jul 2020 13:12:56
We can already upgrade on Shaw with Brandon Williams.


3.) 04 Jul 2020 21:35:55
Williams will serve a purpose and be a squad player. Tbf to Saka the guys is going to the top.

Hi Ed, value your option as always, how many (if any) do you personally think United will sign this Summer?
Thanks.

OK - what about an additional registration step? No idea what the legal GDPR implications are for the me site but accountability is the issue here.
Re: paid subscription, at least you’d be getting paid for the rubbish ;)

KingGiggsy

{Ed001's Note - I think making it more difficult to register is going to have to be the next step, as at least it will slow down the re-emergence of the troll after deletion!

As for the subscription, I am not sure it would earn enough to make it worth the trouble it would take. Plus I like that we provide information for free, that is what the internet was meant to be and should be imo.}

Eds, have you considered a paid membership? Doesn’t have to be huge but something nominal to help cut out the rubbish?

KingGiggsy

{Ed001's Note - yes, many times considered it, but then you are blocking off those who can't afford it from access to the information. Secondly, people expect this much from a free-to-access site, can you imagine how entitled the trolls would be if they paid money for it? In my experience, sadly, trolls are just as likely to pay as any other people.}
