Lukaku to Inter looks good as done. Let's hope the club reinvest this into a top class attacking player before the deadline.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:28:56
If the latest 65m plus add on bid from inter is true it would be sensible to accept it. But it would be so difficult to do anything on one day 😜.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 18:29:13
75 million for Lukaku is a great deal.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 18:37:57
I know it doesn't matter to us how much the club gets for a player, I want to just say that if he was a Real Madrid player, they'd definitely get a better deal for him. He is after all Belgium's top goal scorer and has an excellent scoring record in league football. Saying that, I hope we seal this as we don't need "stars" who don't want to play for United.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 18:56:36
Great move for both club and player. Win win all round. Was never a Utd player and moving to Inter over Juve means he’ll be the main man for them.

5.) 07 Aug 2019 19:11:29
Is that from Fabrizio?

6.) 07 Aug 2019 19:23:00
Hopefully the kick up the arse required to pay what is needed to get Fernandes.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 20:28:21
£77m including add ons. I'll carry the big lump there myself, although i may need a bit of help. He must weigh about 20 stone, and has 3 legs apparently.

8.) 07 Aug 2019 22:09:25
Think it's unfair to say Lukaku didn't want to play for us. Seems to me he has been frozen out due to Ole wanting to play a different style of attacking football. He will score lots of goals if given good service. Not his fault we had no natural wingers and a poor midfield

9.) 07 Aug 2019 22:59:30
Ole wanted to play a style of football where the players control the ball so he was a bit useless to us. Good move for everyone.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 14:48:59
He’s a terrible footballer and above average finisher. Happier with Rash, Tony and Alexis up top.



01 Aug 2019 11:42:38
Sounds like all is agreed with Juventus for Dybala, it's just down on the player to decide now. Some journalists claiming he has already accepted it and we could see an announcement next week.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 11:49:24
Apparantley he needs convincing and his wages more than doubled because he wants to stay in Turin.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 12:23:36
What we don't want give him s@it loads of money just to get him.

3.) 01 Aug 2019 13:16:54
No one knows what we have offered it's all speculation but his agent wouldn't have even entertained any offers if the player wasnt down for moving. he is obviously keeping his options open but if he isn't part of juve plans

The deal makes sense for both players

Lukaku doesn't want to be here and won't be a starter for us. Dybala isn't wanted at juve and would start for us.

If we are to play 4231 he fits perfectly in the number 10 role either side of martial and james with rash up top.

He would improve us.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 15:37:38
It is same excitement when sanchez joined, Maria joined.

Although he is top class player I doubt he suit our style.
He reminds me of young Mata.

I think all Dybala fuss has been put to pressurise inter.

Dybala will either stay at Juventus or go to Spurs because of pochettino.

5.) 01 Aug 2019 15:58:21

Have you seen him play? Young Mata?

6.) 01 Aug 2019 16:00:01

Who told you that?

Have you spoken to the player, his agent, Daniel Levy?

It gets so tiresome reading the same garbage every day.

7.) 01 Aug 2019 17:31:51
🎣🎣🎣 Some people 😃😃.



30 Jul 2019 09:11:42
Hi Ed002, lots of rumours surfacing recently about a potential swap deal between Lukaku and Dybala. I was wondering if you were aware of any interest in Lukaku from Juventus?

I remember you saying Juve would be open to using Dybala in a deal for Pogba, but don't recall anything about Lukaku.

Also, if the interest in Dybala was true, would this have any affect on our pursuit for Bruno Fernandes? As they both play in similar areas of the pitch.



{Ed002's Note - Inter would still like to find a way to make Lukaku happen to satisfy Conte. Juventus has a preference for another but Sarri has said he likes Lukaku.}

1.) 30 Jul 2019 20:48:33
Thanks Ed, manic week ahead of us I think.



25 Jul 2019 08:26:25
Ed002, recent reports coming out that Bruno Fernandes may not be joining United now.

Do you know what's currently holding up the transfer?

We've been linked to him non-stop all summer.

Starting to get Gaitan vibes from this.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly - it is very, very tedious for me to keep having to tell the same story over and over. Manchester United has not made a sufficient offer for the player.}

1.) 25 Jul 2019 08:49:20
Try RTP.

2.) 25 Jul 2019 08:53:01
My bad Ed, I just saw the latest updates on Sky and assumed something may have changed recently.

Thanks for your response.

3.) 25 Jul 2019 08:53:50

Read this page rather than the one with a betting site attached to it.

I can't believe people still believe things that sky say, they have been proved to know very little on so many occasions.

4.) 25 Jul 2019 09:08:34
I don't know which is more frustratingly tedious, Utd's transfers procedure/ sysyem (lack of) or the 'remix' questions for the eds which are actually the same old monotonous tune.

5.) 25 Jul 2019 09:42:01
Ed002's Note - The situation is that the amateurs dealing with negotiations for Manchester United are expecting their arrogant bullying will lead to clubs selling on the cheap or buying at inflated prices. Clubs are simply turning to look at other options as they are wanting to prepare for the season. }

6.) 25 Jul 2019 09:46:16
because united are wasting clubs time with pathetic bids.

if we are serious and want to move forward pay the money and move onto other players

i know the transfer process is a difficult one

but we know what its going to take to get maguire so pay up get it done, same with Fernandez

its really annoying that people who are dealing with the transfers think offering silly money that is nowhere near the valuation will get the players

we are just the same as arsenal in the transfer window. amateurs.

this may be an overreaction but if we are wanting to close a gap of 30 plus points we are not showing any signs of doing this.

anyway rant over.

7.) 25 Jul 2019 09:46:30
It is sounding like we have not made any offer.

8.) 25 Jul 2019 10:42:11
Perth. "A sufficient offer".

9.) 25 Jul 2019 11:19:03
Don't appreciate the bandwagon onto ed's comment, especially by some who have a history of pissing the ed's off too. I simply asked if there was any changes to the transfer after seeing a fairly big news source report a change in the situation, I did not intend on upsetting anyone.

I have been on this site for nearly 10 years and I am well aware of the 'rules'.

10.) 25 Jul 2019 11:23:48
And Simonmorris, that response was literally posted after I asked the question.

11.) 25 Jul 2019 11:49:42
Sorry weggy my bad you carry on then pal🙄.

12.) 25 Jul 2019 12:13:45
How I understand it is Sporting have told us their price. They need to raise money to fund their own refund as they're still replacing players from last years debacle. They can make the money they need off Bruno or plan b by selling other players. We're aware of that and lowballed them hoping they take the first offer. Sporting are sticking to their guns so we need to stop messing around and make a better offer.

13.) 25 Jul 2019 13:11:43
I can see us getting into the last few days of the transfer window and applying a scattergun approach. European clubs know that.

14.) 25 Jul 2019 16:19:35
I'm not sure I buy into this suggestion that Utd overvalue their own players when selling yet undervalue other teams players when buying. If you look at the independent CIES site on player values Maguire is worth 50-70 million euros and Lukaku 90-120 million euros. Our club seems to agree with this valuation. The situation seems more like clubs bump up the price when Utd are interested but believe they can mug us off when they want one of our players.

15.) 25 Jul 2019 17:05:11
It's only relevant if a club is willing to pay up. The whole concept of every player in world football having a set value is total bonk.

16.) 26 Jul 2019 10:00:29
I think that given there appears to be no other interested parties in for Bruno.

We are clearly aware of the "gentleman's agreement" between the player and the club for him having stayed on last year.

So we are testing the clubs resolve knowing that if they fail to sell Bruno to us after receiving an offer above the agreed amount then the club will be forced to pay Bruno £5mil (allegedly) .

So if they don't accept by our deadline day then they are going to either have to hope someone else offers more, accept our offer or. keep Bruno and pay him £5 mill from their empty bank accounts.

The question for me is . have we offered more than any other club will? if we have then stick to our guns and get our man for the price we want.

The only risk besides another club offering more at the last minute is the club suddenly coming into cash to cover the £5mil due to Bruno if they don't sell.


17.) 26 Jul 2019 10:18:04
The problem is Woodward aka the Glaziers puppet.
David Gill would have 3 options to choose regarding players and get at least one over the line
Should results not go our way it will be Ole given the boot not woodentop.
I know we can't demand players from other clubs, And when man utd come knocking it's only right the selling club can milk us for as much as they can.
It's time woody realised this. Pay the dam money.
Be laughable if Fernandes signs for one of our rivals when we have supposedley been chasing him, Then he goes and wins the balon dor.
Dont want a Fellani type signing at 11:59 on transfer deadline day.
Bit worrying also that not many of under performing 1st teamers are not up for sale.

18.) 26 Jul 2019 12:48:49
Rock I think they are up for sale with regards to the under performers. The issue is, and rightly so, nobody wants them.

19.) 26 Jul 2019 14:10:46
That's so true. My bad.



02 Jul 2019 10:43:42
SSN Reporting that we've made a 70m bid for Maguire.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 11:00:24
Personally I don't rate him. At Leicester he isn't under scrutiny like he would be at a bigger club.

Also I don't think he suits Lindelof as a CB pairing.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 11:03:26
Yeah the rumours are gathering pace.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 11:20:54
There was no scrutiny in the World Cup either MH was there? I think he has more than proved he can cope with the pressure, it would be an expensive move but one that would improve us massively at the back. That being said, there are a few other options out there that I wouldn't mind so if he went to City I wouldn't be too fussed as long as we got somebody else.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 11:26:43
He is an upgrade on Smalling, Jones, Rojo and Bailly.
The midfielders can play higher up the pitch if a player like him can bring the ball out of defence.
But the 70m quoted price is insane.

5.) 02 Jul 2019 11:27:23
Tbf England played absolute dross throughout in the world cup until they came across Croatia, having said that, I like Maguire, think I'd prefer Dias but would welcome Maguire and actually think he, lindelof could work well.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 11:42:21
Pure fantasy football now, as I’ve got no idea how transfers work in reality, with all extras etc but just supposing.

Out: (approx figures lol! )

Pogba £120m

Lukaku £65m

Total: £185m


Bruno Fernandes £50m

Sean Longstaff £25m

Sebastian Haller/ Ben Yedder £30m

Too CB (Maguire, Kiulibally) Millenkovic or cheaper West Ham kid, approx £70m

Total out £17m

Would t. E bad business I reckon plus change for wham bars all round!

7.) 02 Jul 2019 11:42:41

He had a good World Cup but so did Pickford. I'd like us to sign a CB, a more agile, technical, athletic CB, like Rio was.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 11:51:38
We kept 7 clean sheets in 38 league games last season. 7!

We are currently in a situation where we are desperate to improve this defence and in Maguire we will get a proven PL CB who is now hitting his prime years.

9.) 02 Jul 2019 11:58:38
Mad hatter pickford is actually a good keep. Good shot stopper and is a decent guy it's his concentration that let's him down but he's still only young.

10.) 02 Jul 2019 12:38:03
We MUST walk away from any deal for Maguire. I feel there is better out there for a lot less money. Short term Alderweireld would be a steal and immediately improve us. One other alongside Alderweireld but I believe Maguire would be a very expensive mistake.

11.) 02 Jul 2019 13:08:46
I think that we need two top quality centre backs. Lindelof is our only pretty decent centre back but I feel that we need more than that. Both Alderweireld and Maguire would be very welcome.

12.) 02 Jul 2019 13:13:50
I think he is a decent player but £70m is totally too much for him (LCFC have rejected bid anyway I hear) . I believe there are far better players out there for that money and that's where we should now look. If City are after him as well as the papers believe then fair one, let them overpay for him.

13.) 02 Jul 2019 13:18:04
If they’ve rejected £70m walk away.

I’d like us to sign Toby if he’s gettable. It would be short term but we need a fix now.

Then we can look at someone like Dias in a couple of years when he’s developed further.

14.) 02 Jul 2019 13:48:21
The problem is we're running out of options. Koulibaly is too highly priced. Ed's said there's interest in Dias from elsewhere. Manolas has just moved.

Maguire wouldn't necessarily be my first choice either but he wouldn't need time to adapt to the pace of the league and I think that's really important. We need to come flying out the traps an hit the ground running. We can allow for 1-2 players to settle but not 4-5 which is why I think we're targeting British players.

15.) 02 Jul 2019 14:34:37
Milenkovic, Diop, Dias are still available.

16.) 02 Jul 2019 14:36:49
I totally agree Mort, the thing about the Maguire deal is our first offer is 70m so the chances are we may go back in higher. I would hope that we do the same thing and offer 70m for Koulibaily and then maybe see if Napoli are open to discussion after splashing out 32m on Manolas.

17.) 02 Jul 2019 16:28:43
Personally i'd go for Toby. Experienced. No settling issues. Cheaper option.

18.) 02 Jul 2019 19:48:35
If we could get Toby for 25 and Diop for 50 then that would be a lot better way to spend £75m and would mean good bye to 3/ 4 defenders if we can sell them too and give us a much better pool of CB’s.

19.) 02 Jul 2019 19:58:35
Toby might want to stay or go on a free to juve next season or mnadrid.

04 Aug 2019 19:54:47
Looks like Ed002 was on the money again. Dybala is not set on joining us so we've pulled out. Looks like our board are starting to be wiser when it comes to these type of players.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 20:11:09
Wiser they should have known that in the first place, with herrera gone surely thay have to bring 8n another, plus fellanni gone,
Fernandes and longstaff would be great,

2.) 04 Aug 2019 20:42:13
if we do not bring in any midfield players i see wolves and everton fighting for top six. we will be lower.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 20:54:43
If we play 4231, we currently have pogba fred matic andre and mctom for 2 positions.



02 Aug 2019 15:26:48
Maguire reported as a done deal by the Telegraph. Deal agreed this morning. 90 million! Games gone.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 15:35:49
I think it will be a very expensive mistake. Fingers Crossed!

2.) 02 Aug 2019 20:34:13
Look at it this way then if the money bothers you.

Lukaku maguire swap
85m for dybala




28 Jul 2019 21:46:45
Bruno Fernandes is looking pretty upset in their game this evening. Waving goodbye to the fans too. Let's hope we can wrap him up this week, looks like a proper good player who would transform our attack.




24 Jul 2019 08:47:30
Interesting that Brendan Rodgers has said publicly that we have not met Leicester's valuation of Maguire.

The deal seemed good as done a week ago.

Could this be a case of Leicester trying to sign a replacement before announcing Maguire is leaving? That way they won't get quoted high prices as selling clubs will know they have a big chunk of money coming in from United.

Either way, I just hope we can sign him up asap so he can begin to settle into our defence.


1.) 24 Jul 2019 09:14:27
It may well be a tactic of Leicester to get the most they can from United? Which if it is, they can't be blamed at all, United have shown we're daft enough to pay over the odds for players over the past few years.

Alternatively, it might be United messing Leicester around and trying to knock down the price?

Ultimately, it looks a lot like the AWB deal, prolonged but will likely eventually get done.

2.) 24 Jul 2019 09:26:02
Weggy i think if Leicester go asking for any cb at the moment I'd say there is a good chance the selling club will have heard that maguire might be leaving and Leicester Jane a chunk of cash coming their way.
This is a case of a ckub knowing the player wants to go.
Knowing they will probably sell but don't want to lose a very important player to a rival even for a record fee
Knowing that the longer it goes on that united may go elsewhere
They are not just going to bend over and be complete submissive.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 09:46:38
Drop interest in Maguire. Who'd win or lose, you decide?

If utd are able to get someone Like Diop instead. Arguably a better player with EPL experience as well. Probably, marginally cheaper and definitely younger.

If Leicester hold on to their "prized" defender. They may miss out on an already ridiculous amount supposedly being offered. But they will not need to find a replacement.

If Utd were to get either of Dias or Milenkovic. No EPL experience, overall seen as better CBs than Maguire and not as expensive.

If utd end up messing up this CB business and are left with same CBs as last season. (I hope not! )

4.) 24 Jul 2019 09:53:24
This whole negotiation tactic of starting off with bids that they know full well are not going to be accepted is appalling. Leicester have money, have a very good squad, decent manager. They don't need to sell. Gone are the days of Man Utd rolling into town and cherry picking your best player.

It's a waste of time. If Leicester are firm on their asking price, then pay it or move on. Reports of us putting in derisory bid for Bruno Fernandes. It just pisses clubs off. These two signings should have been sown up. We have had a free run at both of them and both of them would improve our first 11.

I think Ed and the management staff may be getting blinded by Dybala or Bale and that's why we haven't gone in and secured Bruno.

I know this isn't football manager but we should have had a plan going into this window and relentlessly tried to follow it all the while we're low balling clubs with stupid offers as the transfer window edges closer every day.

5.) 24 Jul 2019 11:12:17
Diop "Arguably a better player" than Maguire? I don't think there's much of an argument there at all.
Dias and Milenkovic "overall seen as better CBs than Maguire". We wouldn't be getting a better player, we MIGHT be getting more potential.

Granted, I don't think Maguire has proven himself to be world class, however he has played better, at a higher level, for longer.
Other 3 have age on their side so could become superb players, don't get me wrong but I doubt many would agree that they are BETTER player right now.

If Leicester hold on to their "prized" defender. They may miss out on an already ridiculous amount supposedly being offered. But they will not need to find a replacement.

If Utd were to get either of Dias or Milenkovic. No EPL experience, overall seen as better CBs than Maguire and not as expensive.

If utd end up messing up this CB business and are left with same CBs as last season. (I hope not! )

6.) 24 Jul 2019 11:25:59
01jamham. How many years has Maguire "proven" himself as a top centre back? I would say at Hull he showed potential, but he was far from a top CB. At Leicester he has been very good for 2 seasons, not quite world class but very good. He is also 26 turning 27 this season. So is hardly a rookie. He has played 4-5 years in the EPL.

Has he got much more growth in him? Can he get to that world class level?

Milenkovic, Dias and Diop have all had very good seasons, arguably as good as Maguire has had. However, all of them are 22/ 23 years old and have much more growth in them. All of them could potentially become world class in a year or two.

So I think it's fair for people to ask is it worth paying 20-30m less for a player who is close to Maguire's ability currently but with more scope to be better than him in the not too distant future.

7.) 24 Jul 2019 11:54:18
cant believe no ones triggered aulderwelds release clause.

8.) 24 Jul 2019 12:35:24
Age is against Alderweirald. No Champions league means he could ask for huge wages.

Dias and Milenkovic are risks coming from other leagues.
Diop is rusty and not that great on the ball.
That leaves Maguire as the safest option.

9.) 24 Jul 2019 12:49:21
Its all very well saying get Dias or milenkovic instead but has anyone considered that they don't want to move or move to united? Also we have a young centre back who could be great. One of those two would only get in his way.

We enquired for diop and got told a price close to maguires.

10.) 24 Jul 2019 14:52:14
Personally I think we should walk away from the transfer. I think it would also send a message out to other clubs we negotiate with in future.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs have no interest in any "message" Manchester United have.}

11.) 24 Jul 2019 15:03:11
i would take auldiweild if the 25mill is still the buy out, forget paying 80 mill for maguire and let tunzuabe learn his craft off auldiweild and lindelof for a couple of seasons. if he progresses and becomes the defender we hope then great. auldiweild still got at least 3 good years left in him and i rate him as good as if not better than maguire. as for wages spurs are not known for silly salaries so i don't think he would be looking at asking for stupid money.

12.) 24 Jul 2019 15:25:43
Very well put Shappy!

Mort, the unknowns regarding Dias and Milenkovic are understood, but has Maguire made his intentions of a move to Utd clear? Diop price maybe can be negotiated as was AWB's.? .

13.) 24 Jul 2019 15:41:08
Mumbles, is the whole point of negotiations not to go in low, and meet somewhere in the middle? Not that i know anything about negotiating, other than on Football Manager.

14.) 24 Jul 2019 15:59:38
My point is that you cannot say any of those 3 are better players than Maguire, who has delivered over a number of seasons in the Prem. (a higher standard of league) . We also get to see every players error or flaw in their game scrutinised by the Sky Sports team, which is why I think people get so excited about foreign youngsters. We don't get to hear about their ok games or any mistakes

I agree that we will pay more for Maguire; and I too question whether he is worth reported fee.

I'd like to think we were trying to sign the best young talent from across Europe as well, and the players you mention probably fall into that bracket, however there has to be an element of balance and experience to a squad, especially in defence. We have Shaw (24) Lindelof (25) and Wan-Bissaka (21) currently as assumed starters.

15.) 24 Jul 2019 16:37:41
Nou Camp, if you're selling a car priced 70 grand and offer 40, you're going to tell me to piss off. There's an art to negotiations but starting off with bids that are insulting isn't a good start.

16.) 24 Jul 2019 17:30:07
No Stevie. That is not the way to negotiate. I do it for a living and would not be doing well with that tactic.

17.) 24 Jul 2019 17:32:00
Shappy none of the 3 of them have any epl experience except for milinkovic who was gotten rid of by city.
Dias is the only one of those that had a good season last year.

18.) 24 Jul 2019 18:13:52
Ken, you must be older than you look. It appears you're getting a bit forgetful.

Issa Diop plays for West Ham, and West Ham were in the EPL last season.

Diop had a very good game against us prompting Mourinho to praise the scout who found him.

So Diop does have EPL experience. So it is only two of those three who in fact have no EPL experience. 😘.

19.) 24 Jul 2019 20:35:19
That's correct shaps.
But that is the jose you told us knew nothing about cb's isn't it😘.

20.) 24 Jul 2019 21:33:03
I think the only reason we are in for Maguire than other CB targets is his ability to win headers in either side of the box.
Used to be Vidic and Cristiano before.
Smalling is probably our only centre back who is good in the air.
Rojo is short, Jones average, Lindelof and Tuanzebe seem more technical and Bailly is rash.
None of them are good headers of the ball.
Also we might see Lukaku leave who wins a decent amount of headers both sides, and maybe one of Pogba and Matic which would only leave the current squad with let's say Matic (who isn't a good header of the ball but still tall), McTominay and Smalling (who isn't a starter) .

I think Maguire fits the bill and the requirement we have more than other players available in the entire market.
Maguire, Tuanzebe and Lindelof who are excellent with the ball on their feet and 2 of Smalling, Jones, Rojo and Bailly is a very decent CB set.

21.) 24 Jul 2019 23:27:20
Not rojo he needs to be sent on loan or something. He is a danger to himself let alone everybody else.

rohanarora8, have you seen the aerial presence of Diop and Milenkovic?

The way it's going, it looks very likely that Pogba will remain at the club for 1 more year.

Juventus don't seem to be wanting to pay in a full cash deal and do Madrid have the funds after the big signings they've already made?

I wouldn't be upset if Pogba stayed one more year if he kept his head down and fully focused on performing well. Then the club could work quietly behind the scenes with potential buyers and we could see him leave gracefully at the beginning of next summer.

That would require 1. Raiola to shut his gob and stop spouting BS to the media and 2. Pogba to also keep quiet and focus on being a professional footballer.

Unfortunately I can't see this happening and I am fully expecting an ugly saga where Pogba leaves as a villain.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 12:37:53
Too much fantasising in your post Weggy.
He won't get his head down and is agent won't keep his mouth shut.
It's best for all parties if Pogba leaves as soon as possible so we can get him out of our dressing room and re-invest in other players.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 12:39:08
Yep, Pogba and Raiola have been vocal because they have been encouraged to by perspective buyers. I don’t think we will lower our valuation, and neither Juve or Real can afford that. If it drags into August it’s going to be painful - Pogba trying to force a move, and no possibility of bringing in a replacement.

That’s why I think the club need to come out and say that no player will be forced to stay at the club, and Pogba can leave if a suitable offer is made. Put the pressure on Real and Juve before the window shuts, and don’t give Pogba the opportunity to control the narrative.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 12:56:13
His agents antics are intented to put pressure on the club and force through a sale. He wouldn't be doing that if there wasn't a real chance of a move happening.

We are about to embark on our toughest season since Sir Alex retired. We need to clear the decks and bring in the right type of player to build. However, fans should be aware that will leave us fighting it out with Arsenal and Chelsea for fourth place. The fans need to accept that now and not throw out toys out the pram when it becomes clear that 4th is the best we can hope for. That is why this will be out toughest season.

Therefore, we can't afford to have the Pogba circus distracting us all summer. The club needs to do a deal as soon as possible and let the club move on.

{Ed002's Note - You seem unable to grasp how transfers work.}

4.) 10 Jul 2019 12:54:52
Thing is why is pogba bit telling his agent to be silent.

This is was is annoying the fact stuff comes out in the press all the time.

If he wants to move keep it I house and go about your business professionally.

Hes still got 3 years left so we don't need to panic and sell him and in knowing the way they both work if he isn't sold it wouodnt surprise me if he signed a new deal before the end of the season.

{Ed002's Note - You have known for a year about this. Now you are all whiny about his agent.}

5.) 10 Jul 2019 13:03:34
Waiting a year could suit all parties tbf. If real don't have the space or money to buy him this year it gives them a year to get rid of some their excess players.

Also if pogba stays and helps us get back into the champions league we will be selling next year from a more strengthened position as we can attract the appropriate calibre of player to replace pogba.

{Ed002's Note - Rubbish.}

6.) 10 Jul 2019 13:30:57
It's fairly simple boys, pogba wants out.

7.) 10 Jul 2019 13:34:52
I'd say its frustration. Pogba wants out and has done for a while. Raiola, I'd imagine is just doing his best for his client.

I'd like to see pogba get his move, providing that we get the correct player. But I highly doubt that will happen.

8.) 10 Jul 2019 14:43:48
Best business all round would be to agree a suitable deal for pogba to leave, he doesn't want to be here and it makes no sense to keep an unhappy player at the club. All very well Ole saying we don't have to sell we are Man Utd but seems pointless keeping a player against his will.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 15:01:37
For me, this is the club trying to swim against the tide.

We have a player who has wanted to leave for the last year.
His attitude has had negative impacts in the dressing room.
There are clubs interested in buying him.

In a situation like this it is in the club’s best interest to work with the player to find a solution in which he can be sold for a fair price. If we could recoup something close to what we paid for him it would be a good deal for everyone.

In contrast, we seem to be pricing him out of a move, and making it more difficult to find a solution. Yeah, the club doesn’t ‘need’ to sell, but it’s better for the club if they do sell this player, and I think that’s the crucial thing.

10.) 10 Jul 2019 15:03:27
im not fussed about him wanting out, just go about it in the right way.

his agent seems to be the one whining about it.

11.) 10 Jul 2019 15:07:03
Then the club need to accept a compromised fee which could have been done before the rest of the squad flew out for pre season.

Even if it potentially means accepting a fee less than what we paid to bring him in, they need to make a decision.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 15:34:02
Although it is obvious he wants to leave I don't believe he has yet formerly requested a termination of his contract and a transfer. It's conceivable that the club are trying to put him and his agent in the position of having to make the request. If he and fat bloke had any honour they'd do the decent thing and make the request in timely fashion in order that we can arrange a suitable replacement. Snakes playing games for extra money!

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you mean about requesting the “termination of his contract”. Maybe you just know rat shit about this whole matter?}

13.) 10 Jul 2019 16:13:47
DSG why should united compromise a fee when the player signed a contract for a set number of years, he can't then just say oh i want to leave now and then we have to make a loss.

regardless if he wants to go or not he singed a contract so he should abide by the contract or if a team come calling who is willing to pay what we want then he goes.

although that's not what is going to happen it should be. players come and go YES.

but all parties should act in a certain manner, and atm his agent is not.

14.) 11 Jul 2019 16:47:03
I hope posters will, with some speed stop this argumentative nonsense.
Do you not see it is nobody's interest to keep winding up Ed 002 who continually supplies top notch reliable info which most of value.
Every year idiots make 002 go silent just at a stage when the transfer window is hitting up.
Please show some restraint otherwise it will not just be the Eds who get a little narked with you.

Don't appreciate the bandwagon onto ed's comment, especially by some who have a history of pissing the ed's off too. I simply asked if there was any changes to the transfer after seeing a fairly big news source report a change in the situation, I did not intend on upsetting anyone.

I have been on this site for nearly 10 years and I am well aware of the 'rules'.

My bad Ed, I just saw the latest updates on Sky and assumed something may have changed recently.

Thanks for your response.

Simon stone is supposedly a mouthpiece for the club. Only reports what he is told from club briefings. He is very reliable when it comes to United news.

Lets hope he keeps improving and when De Gea eventually leaves we'll have a top keeper ready to take his spot.

Really impressed by Gomes too, looking a lot better this pre-season.

Hopefully he gets his opportunity this year.

Werner would be my personal pick.

Only 23 and has lots of talent. Fast and strong so will fit in well in the Prem too.

He is also known to be a big admirer of Manchester United and has said he would love to play for us. Also 1 year left on his contract I believe.

If newcastle want 50m that's crazy. The lad played 9 games and had a bad injury.

I'd rather we wait til they're back in the championship.
