Rumours popping up of us looking at Oblak this summer, with De Gea potentially going back to Madrid.

Would be a great deal for us, but cannot imagine us not giving Deano a shot first.

Weggy

1.) 28 May 2021 12:11:56
We did give Deano a shot this year and he wasn’t great, he did ok but he isn’t at the level we require at the moment to win the league. I think as Ed14 said if we can go and buy the best why are we messing about with players who aren’t really good enough.


2.) 28 May 2021 12:54:46
Oblak is generally considered the best keeper in the world at the moment. If that deal is possible I would snap your hand off, but I imagine it would be very difficult to do.


3.) 28 May 2021 13:12:07
I'd love us to sign oblak not sure it's realistic but it would be a huge upgrade on our current choices.


4.) 28 May 2021 14:11:45
I dread to think how many points goalkeepers have cost us in recent times. For me Romero should have been given more chances but there was too much going on behind the scenes between them all. On Oblak, it's clear to see the difference top GKs have made to City and Liverpool. They were shipping comical goals with Bravo and Karius.


5.) 28 May 2021 15:13:39
Spenno -i would have had romero in the europa squad minimum and wouldve brought him on for pens!
His record when he got game time was quite impressive considering the people playing in front of him.


6.) 28 May 2021 19:16:29
I said it at the time that it was a wrong desicion. No team has two numper 1 fighting for the spot.
Henderson caused us problems. Otherwise we would have De Gea numper 1, Romero numper two and Henderson on loan to see if he is good enough. Then this summer sell De Gea and either replace him with Henderson (if he proves his worth) or go and buy a world class keeper. In any case with Romero as numper 2.

{Ed0666's Note - De Gea has been crap for a while Henderson deserved his place on merit and now he’s crap I think plan C needs to be executed.


7.) 29 May 2021 08:27:42
the major problem is wages for ddg- we gave him an obscene amount of money and there's not many who will be able to or want to pay it.
Saying that we could be looking at £40m value on hendo either sell or player exchange. Romero wages off the books as well as grant pereira but that leaves us bare unless we get say oblak or no.1 and an other backup say johnstone. Would tick a lot of boxes.


8.) 29 May 2021 08:28:58
Plan C, we only do Plan A and even if it fails we continue with Plan A.


9.) 29 May 2021 08:51:15
I can't remember Henderson being crap - not sure where that is coming from. Henderson is the number one and he will be next season.


10.) 29 May 2021 10:29:46
Agree. For the most part, Hendo has done well when called upon. His distribution and command over his defense is streets ahead of De Gea too. I really don’t see the point in wasting money on another keeper when we still need a CB, CDM, RW and striker.


11.) 29 May 2021 10:52:28
Not sure how its ever a waste of money improving on what you have. Oblak is a different class to both of them and you will get another 5-6 seasons out of him -recouping money from De Gea, Hendo or even both of them is good business in my book - and as neither of those would want to play 2nd choice behind Oblak you are really looking selling them both at a net spend of practically nothing and improving your defence and team overall. wheres the down side?


12.) 29 May 2021 12:05:13
Oblak for De Gea swap looks mouthwatering. Don’t see Ole fancying Henderson as No.1 yet or possibly at all? With Donnaruma available on a free also surely a new GK is on the cards?

Whoever we pick GK will be one of Ole’s biggest decisions. But there’s so many of them isn’t there.

CB - Torres? Looks a deal that suits all parties. At least 3 CBs to go though.
CDM - Rice? Don’t see it.
RW - Sancho looks like the longest fligh ever from Dortmund to Manchester will finally land.
CF - should be in for Kane and Haaland. Wont be and just sit back and watch them improve City and Chelsea!


13.) 29 May 2021 12:36:43
With Cavani extending, Kane and Haaland doesn't make sense.

We need to address the core problems first - CB, CDM and RW.
If budget stretches, then a backup RB.


14.) 29 May 2021 15:03:52
I think GK is the last of our priorities. Whoever stays in goal we have good options. Henderson deserves a season if the coaching staff think he can be good enough.

We should be all over the key transfers now and get them done - CB, DM and a forward as the very minimum and work on moving at least 6 players on: Andreas, Jones, Bailly, Pogba, James, one of the keepers. Also assuming Romero and Mata will not be signing new deals.


15.) 29 May 2021 16:44:10
I think all will depend on firstly our budget and secondly whether Olly will get the money from any sales. I am not positive he will but if they give him a budget of £150m (which is paper talk) then that could go a long way if we can add sales on.
I might be at odds with others but I genuinely believe we can improve us going forward by improving to the defensive positions.
The right CB, HM and if we could get Oblak in would all massively release the team to not need 2 HM and as also the FB to press forward more.
In this case I'm in on Oblak although I doubt we will do it.


16.) 29 May 2021 17:43:30
TRD - Cavani won’t play 60 games. Probably half that. We need to bin the woeful Martial and bring in a quality CF.


17.) 29 May 2021 18:47:55
Halesini, Kane's insane valuation would blow our budget in other key areas.
Greenwood is enough to cover for Cavani. Kane would block his path.


18.) 30 May 2021 11:13:39
Torres seems like the obvious choice at CB and a deal seems very doable. The only other club I can see really pushing for him are Real, in which case we should be pushing for Varane seeing as how he is entering the last year of his contract.

I’m still not convinced on Rice, but I said the same think the year when we signed RVP instead of Lewandowski and was made to look very foolish in the years that followed. A cash plus Lingard deal could make it happen, I think.

Sancho seems like something of a certainty and I expect that’s where the bulk of our available funds will go this summer. If Spurs could be tempted by the likes of Martial and Hendo, I’d like to see us try for Kane, although would be very surprised if he doesn’t end up at City. From his point of view, it’s surely the better move by some margin.


19.) 30 May 2021 21:41:28
So you think Torres, Rice, Sancho and Kane lol
I can assure you the net spend will not exceed £100 million.


20.) 31 May 2021 12:37:28
I think we will go not be any worse if one of de gea and henderson stayed.
Both have their own qualities.
We however very harsh on Romero, I'm not sure what happened with him, but he was definitely a good shout for gk rotation. I don't think he had a bad game.
Although Heaton as second choice is very decent backup.


 

 

30 Aug 2020 22:04:50
Hi ed002, I remember you saying we would look to VDB as a potential Pogba replacement.

Do you know if this spells the end for PP at United? Or is the talks of him potentially renewing his contract with us true.

Overall I'm very excited with this signing, will be a great improvement on the midfield options.

Weggy

{Ed002's Note - The club have not responded to requests about Pogba.}


1.) 30 Aug 2020 22:38:06
Surely he’s a Fred replacement/ upgrade?


2.) 30 Aug 2020 22:55:55
Cheers Ed. Will be interesting to see how we handle the Pogba situation. Letting him go on a free seems like an awful decision.


3.) 31 Aug 2020 01:13:36
Should part exchange for Messi ;)


4.) 31 Aug 2020 07:24:02
But Prodigal we know Barcelona can’t top it up to get Pogba 😂.


5.) 31 Aug 2020 07:46:47
Pogba will sign a new contract. His agent gave an interview about this a the other week.


6.) 31 Aug 2020 07:49:18
I was thinking the same Eric

Will it be a midfield 3 of van der beek pogba and bruno.


7.) 31 Aug 2020 08:12:03
I wonder if we will move to 3 at the back if that’s the case?


8.) 31 Aug 2020 10:42:44
Then we need 2 wing backs eric.


9.) 31 Aug 2020 12:34:31
Agreed Ken. Said the same on another post - although Dalot is surely a wing back?


10.) 31 Aug 2020 14:38:34
At least means that poor player Mctominay will get less chances.


 

 

18 Aug 2020 19:17:48
Sky reporting we're interested in David Alaba alongside Chelsea.

Would make way too much sense to sign him, doubt it's true.

Weggy

1.) 18 Aug 2020 19:25:11
Forget about Sancho, put all our focus on Alaba if there is any chance of signing him.


But I doubt he would join us.


2.) 18 Aug 2020 19:36:54
Alaba is an excellent player. He can play LB, CM and CB which are all positions where we need quality. He would be an excellent signing but I'd guess he'd end up at City if he was to end up in the Premier League. He'd probably be first choice at CB or LB for them, he's worked with Pep previously and at the moment he has more chance of winning the big trophies there.


3.) 18 Aug 2020 20:40:46
Denials are out already and Christian falk whos a well known German reporter with ties to bayern says it’s not true. Made too much sense for us really we wouldn’t be that smart.


4.) 19 Aug 2020 07:04:44
Sorry but I think we need a special-ist centre back not jack of all trades. He is a good player no doubt and a great squad player but we need to get the very best we can for whichever position we need filling.


5.) 19 Aug 2020 09:24:01
He is beeter than Luke Shaw if not better than all defenders at utd.


6.) 19 Aug 2020 10:24:30
Alaba is a fantastic player and would slot straight into the eleven (at left back for me) . I can’t see it happening though. His age doesn’t fit the recent profile of our signings.


7.) 19 Aug 2020 11:27:25
Salford7

Alaba is a special-ist LB. He has been one of the best LBs in the world for the past decade. On top of that he is very good at CB and also can play in Midfield. So I think he isn't a "jack of all trades" and is more of master of many trades.

Alaba has been a starting CB for much of this season for a team that has done the domestic double and is in the CL semis.
That is quite an achievement by a "jack of all trades"


 

 

29 Jan 2020 10:22:45
Confirmation that our bid for Fernandes has been accepted. He will be a Man Utd player before the window closes now.

Player has been pictured at the airport.

Finally something to smile about!

Weggy

1.) 29 Jan 2020 11:40:32
Now it's time to start negotiating for a player that we'll sign on the last day of the summer transfer window! Cheers!


2.) 29 Jan 2020 15:21:17
Fortunately, for me at least, there is lots to smile about whether or not the transfer goes ahead.


3.) 29 Jan 2020 18:08:30
You had some good news shawthing?


 

 

28 Jan 2020 19:02:43
Fabrizio Romano has confirm United have sent a new improve offer for Fernandes. Agents seem more confident and Bruno could be travelling to Manchester as soon as tomorrow.

Let's hope the club seal this deal.

Weggy

1.) 28 Jan 2020 19:10:49
Took us all month to pay what he's worth, amazing.


2.) 28 Jan 2020 19:36:32
No it took Barcelona to enter the fray now it's up to the player I'm not sure he's gonae pick us I would imagine his mrs would rather stay in Barcelona than rainy Manchester hope I'm wrong tho.
If he does choose Barcelona them we only have ourselves to blame this deal should've been done weeks ago we have allowed barcelona into this deal when we had a clear run .


3.) 28 Jan 2020 19:59:58
Still so much negativity - for god sake cheer up - looks like we have a great signing.


4.) 28 Jan 2020 20:01:57
About time.


5.) 28 Jan 2020 20:09:29
What a waste of a month if we have just paid what Sporting were asking all along.


6.) 28 Jan 2020 20:14:41
Hard not to be negative tbh when we seem to be clowns in every facet of the club but you are right, a very good player if he signs, build the team around type of signing I'd dare say.


7.) 28 Jan 2020 20:34:40
We have got him for a good price and not what they wanted at all, good deal, thank god.


8.) 28 Jan 2020 21:10:52
No getting excited until. i know it's done and dusted its not negative it's just history of this club when it comes to transfers.
I will be ecstatic if it does go through this is just one of the pieces to get us back fighting.


9.) 28 Jan 2020 21:15:35
I thought the whole Barcelona rumour sounded ridiculous.

Barcelona spend 55m on a player (Bruno) so they can loan him to Valencia to sweeten a deal for a 50m rated striker (Rodrigo) .

Which gets even sillier when you consider Jorge Mendes has been brought in by Sporting to help move Bruno Fernandes. The same Jorge Mendes who has an excellent relationship with Peter Lim the owner of Valencia. So why would Valencia want Barcelona to buy one of their targets so they could loan him, just at a time when they receive a fee for one of their players in the same region cost wise as the player they would like to buy.

It's bonkers, and probably absolutely horse 💩. If Barcelona want to sweeten a deal for Rodrigo they could probably do it for significantly less than the 55m it would cost to sign Bruno.


10.) 28 Jan 2020 21:23:27
Well hopefully Bruno realises that Barcelona only want him, so they can loan him out to get the signing they really want which is a striker from Valencia I believe
Depends on what Bruno wants from his career, To be worshiped at MUFC or quite easily be a bench warmer at Barcelona, Hopefully he makes the right decision and is an absolute star for us . Just the pick me up us fans need right now. Feel more comfortable tho when he is pictured holding up our shirt.


11.) 28 Jan 2020 21:47:16
Good to finally get our man. But isn't the £70m basically what they were asking for from the beginning?


12.) 28 Jan 2020 23:22:46
It’s £46m + add ons so a pretty good deal, we won’t mind paying the add ons if he does well.


13.) 29 Jan 2020 01:47:12
Rock the red - his wife might fancy being a beach warmer in Barcelona though.


14.) 29 Jan 2020 09:07:04
The one saving grace of this whole farce is that it does seem that the deal which has finally been agreed is in fact a decent compromise between what we wanted and what they wanted, not just a panicked last minute capitulation.

The lower starting fee is what the club apparently wanted, but the add-ons mean Sporting should get the bigger fee they wanted eventually.

I'm probably just still drunk from last night, but I can't help wonder whether Ed maybe isn't quite as incompetent as we thought?

22 Jan 2020 19:26:15
Jorge Mendes has come out and said the Fernandes deal currently isn't looking likely to happen this window at this current state.

We want to pay less than the asking price and neither side is looking to budge yet.

Raiola has also made some comments regarding Pogba, sounds like they're going to hopefully move in the summer. Will be interested how the club reacts after losing pogba, he is on paper our best asset.

Hey Ed002, are you aware of any changes in Ole's position at United?

Results really aren't going his way, football is fairly dire and the fans are beginning to turn. Are the club still backing him or is he on his last life?

Currently 'stranded' in Mallorca due to this thomas cook situation.

Had some time to watch the game and I'm starting to wonder how the club thought letting Lukaku leave without a true replacement would work? Quite worrying that we put so much trust into some younger lads who clearly aren't there yet.

After watching Napoli this weekend I can't help but feel Llorente on a free could have been a good stop-gap as he was on a free.

Let's hope the lads go out there against Arsenal and prove they're good enough, but I'm not feeling confident. Hopefully our flight home gets delayed for a week or two 🤣.

Let's hope they beat Rochdale first eh.

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.

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,

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.

I'd expect this one to go on until the end of Jan and we'll eventually pay up.

The club is under pressure and if we don't bring in a top quality player Ole will be thrown to the wolves. Signing Fernandes could potentially save our season if he hits the ground running.

Red Man, Sancho is probably not worth that kind of money but he is one hell of a player, only Messi has more goals + assists over the last 3 seasons.

Personally I am not fussed by the costs, it's doesn't concern me.

I read it fully several times Ed002 and really appreciate the work that goes into providing this info.

I full respect your decision as you don't need to do this for us. The transfer window seems to bring the worst out of a lot of 'fans' and unfortunately the brunt of it is aimed at people like you or journalists providing info.

Hopefully this will push those idiots away from the site so the rest of us can enjoy discussing things again.

Let's be honest, Di Maria, Lukaku and Herrera were all good enough. Di Maria wanted out, Ole didn't want Lukaku and we messed Herrera about too much.

Sanchez was a complete failure.
