Morning Ed002, has the Lille striker Jonathan David been of interest to the scouting team? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Jonathan David (S/AM) Lille, like many French clubs were hit hard by the loss of broadcast revenue and will need to sell some of their more valuable assets even though they do not want to. Jonathan David is valued by Lille at an unrealistic €60M. Real Madrid have previously declared an interest but their focus seems to have turned away. An option for Madrid might be to pay a deposit on a transfer for 2023 and leave him at Lille or even try and negotiate Eden Hazard being included in a deal. He has been recommended to Chelsea by an ex player but they have preferred targets. The new Manchester United coach tried to take him to Ajax and could potentially look to taking him to Manchester United if they lose out on preferred targets. Barcelona interest has gone although Spurs, Newcastle, Liverpool, West Ham, Inter and Arsenal are clubs cited having sent scouts to watch him. Making the Champions League may be an important factor in any transfer.}

A Utd lineup including Fred, Antony, David is sounding quite informal. Is there a Brazilian Kevin and German Frank we can chuck in too?

2.) 11 Aug 2022 11:43:27
Interesting about EtH's previous interest in David. Personally I think he could be an excellent option being able to play through the middle or out wide. His technical quality, pace, and his intelligent decision making do mark him out as a player who should work well under EtH.

Fingers crossed we maybe move for him.

Reports on-line that United have beaten Lyon to the signing of Tyrell Malacia.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 17:16:27
Personally, I'd rather United signed David Raum, but Malacia would be a decent upgrade on Shaw and Telles.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 17:42:41
Malachia for €15m + 2 add-ons looks tremendous value. He’s had other offers for a few weeks but been holding out for us apparently.

Telles off now surely.

I suspect De Jong and Malachia are the two players Ten Hag expects to be completed in time for the Far East tour. But who’s next? Martinez or Torres at CB? Antony at RW? Eriksen?

At last the transfer wheels have started to move a little.

3.) 28 Jun 2022 19:13:21
Good chance that De Jong, Malacia and Bachmann could be done before the tour.

Could even get Eriksen is he decides to choose us over staying in London.

We could literally have 4 new players before the tour, with rumours of Antony or another flexible forward and maybe a CB if we can shift some off the squad list.

I think the Malacia deal has been forced due to Lyon pushing to complete his signing.

It's fortunate that Malacia and FDJ share the same agent, it should make it easier to simultaneously complete both transfers.

4.) 28 Jun 2022 23:05:41
Got to admit I’m more concerned about right back than any other position. Both of our options aren’t good enough and I can’t see that they ever will be.

5.) 28 Jun 2022 23:08:27
How is Malacia an upgrade on Shaw and Telles?

In what departments does he suffice as an upgrade? He's 22 year old and only been courted by the likes of Lyon and West Ham along with us!

I suspect it means he's likely to play second fiddle to shaw and be back up. Thus allowing Telles to leave as he's not going to get any better with age.

6.) 29 Jun 2022 10:07:26
Kevani, aren't you a cheerful delight.

I think Malacia will come in and initially replace Telles. He's an exciting young player who several Eredivisie pundits have called the best full back in the Eredivisie last season.

Telles has been somewhere between average and poor in all his appearances for United.

Malacia has the potential to be a top young player, and possibly in time an upgrade on Shaw. If he settles well and can develop well.

EtH has followed him to over 2 years and attempted to sign him for Ajax last summer. So I'll be inclined to trust his better judgement.

7.) 29 Jun 2022 13:47:51
As Shap says, EtH wants him that should be enough for us.

8.) 29 Jun 2022 17:35:18
I am glad people keep reminding us of the important fact that United's manager knows more about football and has more influence on United purchases than random people on the Internet.

9.) 30 Jun 2022 10:13:45
Its just fact how everyone is an expert on Malacia since we've agreed a deal and he's the best thing since sliced bread. Saying he's an upgrade on Shaw and telles when no one knows if he is or not.

I hope it turns out to be a good signing.

Just need a RB, CB, CM, RW and ST now.



09 Jun 2022 22:16:48
According to ' Inside Futbol ' ETH is personally intervening in the Darwin Nunez situation and is locked in talks with his agent Jorge Mendes in a bid to rescue a deal for the player, time will tell?


1.) 09 Jun 2022 23:28:37
Be careful tattoo

Duvet my comment and say your lieing.

2.) 10 Jun 2022 11:19:25
Bolger, you don't know what the truth is.

We just have to wait and see. A long way to go.

3.) 11 Jun 2022 19:39:02
Bolger you speak with fork tongue my friend.



22 Mar 2022 17:11:11
Is Richarlison a genuine MUFC transfer target or is this lazy red top tattle because he looks miserable at Everton?


{Ed002's Note - Although I expect him to move in the summer Manchester United’s interest is elsewhere as far as I know.

1.) 22 Mar 2022 17:59:30
Thanks Ed002.

2.) 22 Mar 2022 18:38:51
A tall englishman with a prominent nose in London?

3.) 22 Mar 2022 19:14:54
We only sign below average Brazilian's so seeing as he's slightly above average he's probably far too good for us ?.

4.) 22 Mar 2022 19:22:11
From a whisker away from Barcelona to the Championship… decent player though.

5.) 23 Mar 2022 02:35:56
Just what we need. Another stroppy, sulk in the team.

{Ed077's Note - our Everton Ed has said that he is a grafter and works hard. I don't think there are many in the Man Utd squad that can be accused of working hard?

6.) 23 Mar 2022 06:12:34
But he doesn't he again play LW.
How many LW players is actually needed :P.

7.) 23 Mar 2022 09:52:22
Ed077, I don't doubt it. My brother-in-law is a Toffee and he raves about him. The young lad just always seems to be in a permanent strop. When you have a teenage son, you can recognise the signs ?.

{Ed077's Note - well, he plays for Everton, so you can surely understand him being miserable most of the time.

His diving/play-acting antics are a bit off putting for me though, Inspired by Neymar, no doubt.



07 Jun 2021 16:35:02
Just a rumour but a delivery driver from Brighton I've chatted to today, season ticket holder, suggests Ole is looking at striking a deal for Ben White before his price potentially rises if he has a good Euro's?


1.) 07 Jun 2021 16:55:03
That's where we make the mistakes. We wait till the price of a player goes through the roof. We could buy a player for 30 mil. Na let's wait till he is 75mil. We will pay u 300 grand a week and give u a 7 year contract.

{Ed077's Note - We have shown some level of interest in him..}

2.) 07 Jun 2021 18:09:22
Re Ben White, he could be perfect alongside Maguire.
He reads game well and is quite fast. He could do better aerially though.
Problem is that as soon we make our interest known, Brighton will hike up the price.

3.) 07 Jun 2021 18:22:31
We could have an English summer, signing Sancho for RW, Trippier for RB, Rice for CDM and White for CB.

Apparently Maguire wanted more English speaking players.

Could potentially have Henderson, Trippier, White, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Garner, Sancho, Lingard, Rashford, Greenwood as our all English starting 11.

With Grant, AWB, Williams, Mengi, Tuanzebe, Galbraith and Shoretire on the bench.

I mean it wouldn't be a great United side, but we would have at least fully embraced Brexit.

4.) 07 Jun 2021 18:22:52
dev i think the price is already high. When Liverpool wanted him Ed002 said us that he will cost 50 millions or something (if i remember correctly)

5.) 07 Jun 2021 19:34:12
Could he bring Bissouma with him?

6.) 07 Jun 2021 20:08:13
We’ve already fully embraced leaving Europe rather expertly Shappy on numerous occasions.

7.) 07 Jun 2021 20:39:56
Who doesn't speak English at United? Lol pretty sure maguire gets by just fine, needs to worry about his footballing ability rather than language barrier of him and Scotty Mac.

8.) 07 Jun 2021 21:26:19
Shappy that was a poorly written story in the newspapers

Imagine the captain of man united turned around and said that and thwn was allowed not only to get away with saying it but then the club doing what he asked.

9.) 07 Jun 2021 22:27:28
If Maguire is making demands like that and the club is listening to him then we really have fallen in stature. Fudge what he wants, if it’s true, we need to be going for the best available.

10.) 08 Jun 2021 08:23:29
WRD, Cavani?

11.) 08 Jun 2021 08:42:03

12.) 08 Jun 2021 11:02:37
Are people genuinely believing that? Imagine Maguire turning round and saying it and then thinking it is ok to tell me media as well!

13.) 08 Jun 2021 13:05:51
Cavani, if I remember rightly, is not only our best striker but been one of out best defensive players, I know its a rumour but it's also nonsense if true which I doubt it is tbh. The outage if it was true would be huge.

09 Jul 2022 12:05:37
Getting so damn bored of the De Jong saga, so many contrary reports of ' he wants to join and he doesn't ', I think we should step away and look at Ruben Neves, Prem proven and dominated us at Old Trafford last season.


1.) 09 Jul 2022 12:41:40
Stop reading the reports then.
If he signs he signs if he doesn't he doesn't.
But I'm quite sure they will have a plan b if required.
It appears the manager wants fdj and must feel like he can help pull it off but who knows.

2.) 09 Jul 2022 13:34:13
Ken, I think the club needs to set a deadline with Barcelona for de Jong or simultaneously work on bringing in an alternative with the view that if both deals work out then so be it; the club brings in two quality midfielders.

Like you say, these things could be happening anyway but how would we know?

3.) 09 Jul 2022 14:35:19
Are you sure there is a plan B Ken?

4.) 09 Jul 2022 15:02:07
I would think so spenno.
But I'm not sure how could I be.

5.) 09 Jul 2022 16:14:01
Or, drag it out as long as possible, then say to the fans, we tried but the bad boys of Barcelona messed us about. Thereby saving £70m which they can take out in dividends in January.

6.) 09 Jul 2022 17:14:03
I think we’re being optimistic in the extreme if we think that there is a Plan B. I’d have thought that the club would have sounded out de Jong firstly and got a cast iron guarantee that he would join before pursuing him for such a long time. It seems that from the beginning, sound bites were coming from various quarters that he wanted to stay with Barcelona. And why wouldn’t he? We’re a bit of a shambles to be truthful.

7.) 09 Jul 2022 17:28:00
And reports coming out of Spain is that he's rejected the move anyway. Plan B might be James Garner.
Tbh, I would rather we got a DM instead.

8.) 09 Jul 2022 19:58:49
Frankie isn't coming. not now after those comments. i just hope they've got a plan b for midfielders because if United go into the Brighton game with mcfred. god help us.

9.) 09 Jul 2022 20:28:18
Woukd be relatively happy if we just sign Eriksen (boost midfield) Martinez (CB/ DM) and Malacia, plus promote a few youngsters such as Garner and Garnacho.

Though do think we need a striker.

10.) 10 Jul 2022 00:05:46
Please holy satan don't let Plan B be James Garner!
Ruben Neves gets my vote too out of the names doing the rounds. A step up for him, as opposed to SMS who is brilliant but for whom let's be honest, as the adorned Lazio captain it would be a massive downgrade at this moment in time.

11.) 10 Jul 2022 01:04:47
Why would it be a downgrade? Lazio can't win the title, probably won't be strong contenders for the top 4 either, he would be payed better at United, so he would at least be at the same level if he was to come.
I can't believe people say going from Lazio to United would be a downgrade, Jesus.

12.) 10 Jul 2022 06:49:08
Spenno, I too hope garner is not plan B, but unfortunately, its looking that way, and the Glazers get to save £70m in the process and that's the only language they understand. My money will be on someone who is a free agent who wouldn't need them to pay any big transfer fee.

13.) 10 Jul 2022 10:32:03
Trololo, every player we’ve moved for apart from an unknown leftback has opted against us or is hanging for yonks on committing. It’s a giant mess.

14.) 10 Jul 2022 10:46:45
It's abit harsh to judge Garner before he has been given a chance at the club. Whilst I understand the need for a top DM, we don't have the funds to go out and buy player after player.

Perhaps under the guidance of EtH, he might blossom into a top player.

15.) 10 Jul 2022 18:18:08
By all means give Garner a chance. But he’s never played at an elite level before so I’d seriously temper the notion that he’s going to hit the ground running and rip the league up.

16.) 10 Jul 2022 22:14:52

We don’t play at an elite level so should be fine. Will be good to see Garner given a chance, people want youth to be given a chance then when they are they whine and moan we are giving youth a chance and not buying a shiny new player.

Still think we will get Frenkie, doubt we will get Frankie.

17.) 11 Jul 2022 09:56:14
Spenno, who exactly do you mean? Nunez, who went to a clearly better team atm? De Jong, where we still don't know what will happen, and plays for one of the top teams? Or Ajax players, that would come by all the reports, if we figure out a deal with their club?
I don't see players from "lower tier" clubs avoiding us. Sure, we might be a mess, but saying that leaving Lazio for United would be a downgrade is nonsense.



19 Apr 2022 11:29:56
Monchi at Seville stating that the door may not have closed on Martial moving permanently, Say's a deal will be much cheaper than people think, maybe £7 million. Let him go at a big loss or price him out of a move and be stuck with him?


1.) 19 Apr 2022 12:01:13
The reality is we will lose Cavani, we have lost MG, and we could lose Ronaldo if he isn't prepared to stick around in either the Europa League or Europa Conference.

Leaving Martial as the only special-ist striker at the club. Rashford could play through the centre but in truth has always looked more comfortable and better coming from the left.

We won't sign 2 strikers this summer so if Ronaldo leaves maybe EtH will give Martial a chance.

As fans we all have our opinions and views on our players. We have seen them play for many years often under several managers.

Yet EtH plays a very different style of play and is in truth a very different kind of manager.

As fans we have to accept he might see things differently to us and might be prepared to give players a chance who we'd rather see leave the club.

Maybe he will pick Henderson over DDG.

Maybe he will give Maguire a chance.

Maybe he'll stick with Fred as first choice.

Maybe he'll give Donny a run of games or maybe he won't.

Maybe he'll play Sancho on the right, or the left, or even bench him.

Maybe he'll make Rashford a CF.

Maybe he rates Garnacho above Elanga.

Maybe he doesn't think Ronaldo suits his style but that Martial could.

At the end of the day we all have our favourite players and others we don't like or rate.

But if EtH plays them or not it will be for a reason. Ultimately if the team plays great football and we challenge for titles and win things do we really care if Henderson, Maguire, Fred and Martial all start over DDG, Varane, Bruno and Ronaldo?

Football is ultimately a team game and a manager picks the players who work best as a team and not as individuals. That was our complaint under Ole, that the team was set up for individuals. We have now gone for a very different manager, with a vastly different approach.

Let's wait and see who he plays and more importantly HOW the TEAM plays.

2.) 19 Apr 2022 12:34:31
If EtH is given the full control that we hope I think there will be players that will stay and go that as fans we will not necessarily agree with but we have to see how they play under the new regime and style.
Martial may suit what EtH wants to do and could be like a new signing for us and if we have to evolve slowly there may not be the cash or desire to bring in more than one striker this window so with Cavani out, Greenwood not available and who knows with Ronaldo it may be that we have to see what Martal can do.
Hopefully we will bring in one striker (Nunez/ Isaak/ Oshimen), bring through someone from the youth team (McNeil) and then utilise our wide players if needed.

3.) 19 Apr 2022 13:54:35
What has Martial ever done to show a new manager he is 100% committed to the cause, that he will work his socks off to be successful for himself and the team? By all reports he has hardly endeared himself to the Sevilla fans.

Players like Vardy, Puki, Bowen at WHU, Welbeck, and the young strikers at Villa and Leicester all embarrass him with their work rate and application. Never mind the stikers at teams in the hunt for silverware

The bloke is a total waster.

4.) 19 Apr 2022 13:54:38
I couldn't care who stays or goes as long as the manager has olayers that want to play for the badge and give the fans performaces to be proud of,

That goes for the likes of de gea, ronaldo even bruno, if they ain't 100 for the cause and ain't playing for the manager send then packing.
