Everyone saying we need a like for like replacement for Carrick but to be honest I think we might be better getting someone in the Makelele role, someone to break up play. We've got Pogba and Mkhitaryan who can pick the killer pass. Plus it will let Pogba and Herrera roam further forward.

Krychowiak is someone I'm a big fan of and I think he'd be a great addition if looked at. Not a like for like replacement but is quality nonetheless.

If we are going for someone who is more of a passer then for me Veratti would be ideal but he won't be coming in. Jorginho at Napoli is a very good player who controls the game from the central midfield role.

Bakayoko at Monaco is also someone we are looking at.

3.) 12 Jan 2017 14:41:56
Verratti would be My choice but that seems a non starter.

What about Leon Goretzka or Julian Weigl

4.) 12 Jan 2017 15:39:15
havent seen much of goretzka, but form what I have seen of weigl, would love him at the club. don't think there is any chance though.

5.) 12 Jan 2017 15:50:38
We could look for more of a destroyer rather than a builder in the No.6 role. But that would put a lot more emphasis on our other midfielders to control and dictate our play.

I think its difficult to work out the best way forward. A lot of people thought Carrick wasn't the right replacement for Keane, but at the time there was very few people who could have slotted into the team and played the same way with no drop off in quality. Maybe only Essien or Gattuso, De Rossi maybe.

So instead we looked to evolved, maybe with few options to Carrick who plays similar to him then maybe a change of tact is best. Kroos is the one who I Think could play the same way as well. Other than that we might have to look to someone younger like Weigl to build up.

So maybe a change to someone like Bakayoko or William Carvalho could work.

6.) 12 Jan 2017 16:24:24
Please not William Carvalho, he is terribly overrated.

7.) 12 Jan 2017 17:10:38
Jose could maybe spend the Schneiderlin money on Bakayoko from Monaco. Could do a good job as a number 6.

8.) 12 Jan 2017 17:26:20
I like the look of Bakayoko. If we're going for a similar style player, I'd love Verratti or Kroos, but ed has said we aren't interested in either so we must be looking elsewhere.

9.) 12 Jan 2017 19:11:29
i think kroos would be great and might be available

10.) 12 Jan 2017 20:51:24
Kroos would be a dream player. Best in the world in that position, even better than the great Carrick.

I hope we revisit his situation as it looks like he is on the way out

11.) 12 Jan 2017 21:37:40
I too would love Kroos. Ed002 has said he is available in the summer and Madrid have talked to two clubs about him. We are not one of them. City are unfortunatly

{Ed004's Note - I would look at trying to get Zlatan to talk to Verratti. A midfield of him and Pogba along with either Carrick or Herrera would be brilliant}

12.) 12 Jan 2017 22:36:13
I went with steak

13.) 12 Jan 2017 22:39:17
I like Kroos but he does not play As the deepest midfielder for Madrid and didn't at bayern. That is not to say he can't play there.
Super passing range. City are on his case and add stand says madrid would like to sell him in the summer

{Ed004's Note - Honestly think we will need 2 midfield signings anyways with Schweinsteiger, Fellaini, Schneiderlin and Mensah (loan) leaving. Would want to go into next season with Pogba, Herrera, Carrick, a DM (like Bakayoko) and cm (like Verratti, Kross, Tielmans) and Perriera as our options. We will hopefully be competing on more fronts (champions league) or worst case scenario we will have a better squad to compete in Europa and the league. Would definitely be higher quality}

14.) 13 Jan 2017 00:48:38
its where kroos plays most of his games for germany .
also different teams different options but look at the attributes he has and the strong points of his game and he should do great in that position

15.) 13 Jan 2017 02:16:20
Ed004 did you not hear fellaini is staying Jose lives him to bits😊

{Ed004's Note - He has a good relationship with Mourinho and he seems a likeable personality but I expect Mourinho to be ruthless}

Question for ed 002.

With all this talk of Griezmann being offered 220,000 a week to join, in your opinion are we going in for him now or will we push for him in summer?

The Dark Knight

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to try and answer questions about timescales. Manchester United has no agreement with his club.}

1.) 06 Jan 2017 23:26:37
Listen to the shark pod. It's very informative. Don't listen to the drivel the papers print week in/ week out.
In regards to Griezman, I doubt that AM would sell him in the jan transfer window unless a ludicrous offer came along.



13 Aug 2016 10:05:08
Santos president says Manchester Utd and Chelsea have contacted them about Barbosa, what do we make of that? I'd be happy with him for next season.

1.) 13 Aug 2016 11:15:41
I guess I saw the wrong quotes where he said that he met United, Chelsea and athletico officials to "further their relationships and not about the transfer of any player". Am I missing something?

2.) 13 Aug 2016 11:37:05
I just saw it on sly sports, probably bollocks anyway.

{Ed041's Note - third part owners, I think it's a no go. Look on the city page, ed02 put up a comprehensive take on it.

Let's be serious Chiswick, if Utd were seriously after him, they would probably get him.
