if this really is the end of the Griezmann saga, so you think Man Utd will completely move on or do you think the move could be revisited in a years time. Maybe this will mean Martial is given another year to sort his head out. (Won't hold my breath though, the lad seems to lacking in the mental strength department).

IF talks were ongoing with United and Griezmann i don't see how they couldn't have anticipated this scenario whereby Atleticos ban isn't lifted, something just doesn't seem right.


2.) 02 Jun 2017 07:15:01
I would say that United probably didn't want to pay the full release clause or didn't want to pay it immediately.


3.) 02 Jun 2017 09:13:48
Read ED002 post about release clauses etc.


4.) 02 Jun 2017 11:33:24
Hi all, thanks to the Eds as always for the site. This is purely my guess.

United have decided to hold out one more year for AG because of two reasons, one because of the injury to Ibra and so a CF is now of higher priority and two there is a situation with AG that isn't desirable to the club, perhaps player attitude/ arrogance?

Lukaku looks to be the first choice now, he has prem experience over a number of years and although it hasn't quite proven himself yet in the bigger games, Jose believes he has it in him.
The 'surprise' Jose is referring to is either Neymar or Bale but this will depend on whether Martial is sold and/ or Rashford heads out on loan (not what I want but I can see it happening) .
For what it's worth I also think De Gea will stay but that is just a gut feeling.

Reading through Ballague's Spain round up.

He says that Rodriguez would prefer a move to us or Chelski and that there have been offers from England just wondering if any of the eds know if one of those offers came from United?

He did also say that Liverpool were interested but they were not his preference, which was nice to read

OR

Was he chatting the proverbial again?

PG.

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any offers since last summer that involve a straight cash deal.

Real Madrid did not want to sell James Rodrigues in January but they will listen to any very high bids made for the summer. Four clubs come in to the picture - Manchester United because they are seen as stupid enough to pay what most sides would see as way over the odds for the player who some would describe as a childish flake; Chelsea as the player has suggested himself that he would like to play for them and live in London - but they won't be held to ransom and have major concerns about his ability to settle in the very culturally different England - but this may not deter an offer; Juventus - but he is one of several potential targets and their interest is elsewhere; and Bayern Munich now that Carlo Ancelotti is heading there - again they won't be held to ransom. However, whilst the intention is that he will be sacrificed in the summer to raise funds, there are some significant things going on in the background that could have an impact on whether or not he will be leaving during 2016 - so we need to wait and see but I expect circumstances to be such that they may listen to offers. But they could block any move until the end of the window awaiting the outcome of a number of issues. His agent has spoken to three sides about James including Manchester City, Juventus and Chelsea to try and move things along. Manchester City are unlikely to be interested. Real Madrid has also spoken with PSG through a third party whilst discussions were being held over another player. They could bite later in the transfer window if he is still available. Chelsea have also spoken with Real Madid but are frustrated that they are running hot and cold over whether or not they will let him leave this summer and concerns remain over price and a move to London.}

I think Depay would be a great option for us down the right.

I’m probably wrong, usually am, but I’m thought I remembered there being some form of clause in the deal when we let him go to Lyon.

Any thoughts?

(Maybe one of the Ed’s could tel me if a clause existed, I believe it was first refusal or that United were to be informed if an acceptable offer had been submitted)

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - There are no clauses, references to butterflies or anything else to concern yourself with.}


1.) 28 May 2019 00:22:25
Just “no” would’ve been fine.


2.) 28 May 2019 01:11:54
He never played on the right when he was here. And I don't think such a media conscious player is what we need right now. It is enough of a problem already.


3.) 28 May 2019 00:52:39
When we sold him to Lyon we agreed a buy back clause and also a sell on clause. he's not had a very good season though compared to last season. I'm sure he's only scored 8 goals where as he scored over 20 last season.


4.) 28 May 2019 00:57:04
Sorry my bad he's scored 12 goals in all competitions this season. He does seem to get his fair share of assists though. I'm not sure we are interested though 🤔.


5.) 28 May 2019 06:20:11
Yeah another player with poor attitude.


 

 

24 May 2019 22:21:43
I’d like to think that United are considering Ricardo of Leicester at some level.

Even as a plan B to WB.

. I’d prefer Ricardo, the lad is disciplined.

Peter Griffin

1.) 24 May 2019 23:13:58
Prefer him to AWB? Why?


2.) 25 May 2019 08:07:53
I’d take Meunier and let him play alongside and help develop Dalot who was our brand new shiny teenager last summer for £20m and teach him the game.


3.) 25 May 2019 11:05:56
Only price would make him a better signing, the only other who comes close to AWB is TAA at Liverpool and we ain’t gona get him.


4.) 25 May 2019 11:21:29
Same. Meunier would cost about 30 million less which can go into the centre back fund.


5.) 25 May 2019 11:42:30
If we're looking at attacking full backs, then Ricardo. If we want more defensive-minded full backs, then AWB.


6.) 25 May 2019 14:32:16
Nou, AWB is as good going forward as he is defensively. He was a winger until coaches at Palace discovered he’s very good at tackling.


7.) 25 May 2019 17:07:31
Maybe at Palace he just doesn't get the opportunity to get forward as much, which is fair enough. Haven't really seen him as an attacking threat.


8.) 25 May 2019 19:17:53
He has a decent cross on him and can get past a man, pace to burn. He reminds me a bit of a modern day Ashley Cole, but less physical and more technical to suit today’s game. Saying that if AWB achieves half as much as AC he’d have a great career.

Ed’s if you have time.

Do you think Man Utd will be watching Bales situation at Real? Ed Woodward will probably be drooling at the though of finally getting Bale in.

I really hope you say interest has passed but I believe that’s a carrot that Ed W can’t refuse.

Gracias.

Peter Griffin

{Ed002's Note - Bale's situation is perfectly clear and won't change. He is available but the price is through the roof. Manchester United has identified targets and I am not aware of them changing to include Bale.}


1.) 19 May 2019 18:25:41
That’s a relief to hear Ed. Overly expensive and will be 30 when the season starts. We made a mistake paying Roo year stupid money at 30. We’ve repeated the mistake with Sanchez (although slightly younger) . Hopefully lessons have been learned.


2.) 20 May 2019 09:19:36
Pass, on Bale.


 

 

11 May 2019 23:22:47
Decent player with the right attitude. But we can’t keep giving out big contracts to 29 year old.

You can’t keep making the same mistakes and expect the same results.

Peter Griffin

*different results.

That’s what you want to see from your football club! Work ethic and absolute commitment. Liverpool are making the headlines for ll the right reasons and hats off to them and it good luck in the final. The best we can hope for is a leak of someone’s salary. Only way we’re making the back pages.

That team deserves a trophy this year. Very unlucky that there’s another team in the league that could keep up with them never mind in Europe.

I might get slated for this post but take your blinkers off and appreciate. Bravo.

Peter Griffin

{Ed0333's Note - wow love you Mr Griffin 😍

Regardless of rivalries liverpool bossed it.

Fair play to them.

It’s fair enough to want big money for stars really isn’t it?

I’m sure the wages that we would have to offer to get Beat Barcelona to MDL would be the final nail in the coffin regarding DDG talks.

Icardi would be nice. As long as his wife stayed in Italy.

Don't think he is keen on a move to England. Apparently because cigs are too expensive.

That’s some list you’ve reeled off though. The Dutch have been blessed in that department over the years.

I think another left back would be nice but not a priority. Doesn’t have to be a world beater just needs someone that will work hard and provide a good option when Shaw has the dips in form that he is prone to.

I think work rate should be what we are looking for in any player this summer. Like one of the Ed’s said about Klopp. Attitude 1st and then talent and ability. Can’t think of many players that have come in post SAF with the correct attitude. Lindelof and Herrera the exceptions for me.
