Have we shown any interest in Evanilson of porto, young forward.

bolger2

{Ed002's Note - Evanilson was subject to an illegal approach by an English side before he left Fluminense. Manchester United have scouted another Porto player but I am not aware of any approach for Evanilson.}


1.) 19 Jun 2022 18:58:29
Probably Liverpool, if it was an illegal approach.


2.) 19 Jun 2022 19:15:13
Thanks ed.

Erik ten Hag is now described as ‘satisfied’ by Manchester United plan to make important decisions together with him. That’s why he wanted a long-term contract. ⏳? #MUFC

Back room staff and buyout clause [€2m] payment to be discussed soon in order to complete the process.



Dare we say the club have made a good footballing choice?

Excited to see what happens in the summer now with outgoings, get hungry young players in and let him and his staff change the dire philosophy in this club.

Think this is great news for the academy players, with him coming from argubly the best youth set up in world football.

They may be a clear passage now into the first team for our kids.

Excellent choice and would do very well here if we gets the players to build this team.

Antony, Nunez/ Kane, Kounde,2 CMs and RB.

If we get these type of players and get rid of some of the players who are not good enough then we will see this team win some titles! .


2.) 12 Apr 2022 21:21:53
Unfortunately Singh, those signings would still not have us any where near challenging.
Clearing out the mediocre players has got to be priority this summer.


3.) 12 Apr 2022 21:28:04
While I tend to agree that the team needs a new RB, CB, CDM, RW, and ST I actually think we will likely see 3 maybe 4 signings at most. Or at least only 3-4 signing to go into the first 11.

I expect EtH to work more with many of the players we have and try to improve them before binning the lot. Making sure they don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.


4.) 12 Apr 2022 21:55:07
I think we will push for nunez, a cm and give garner game time next season, along with a cb if we can get rid of jones bailly and tunzube

Then if martial leaves a winger.

Hope we see vdb get game time and show what he can do

Interesting summer ahead.

But its not going to be a quick fix, we have to turn these players into actual footballers and its going tk take time.


5.) 12 Apr 2022 22:42:30
It’s quite unusual to see more interest in who we want to get rid of rather than who we will get in and a culmination of years of anger towards poor recruitment and poor attitudes. Really excited about what could happen and what a new side looks like. Enough players are leaving to mean a handful will come in, even from our youths.
Martial is a tricky one. I get the sinking feeling he’ll just come back and be the next player to run down his contract for 100 years.


6.) 12 Apr 2022 22:43:47
I think if we can sign a cb, rb, lb, a few midfielders, a winger, a striker and maybe a new keeper, we might finish third next season.


7.) 12 Apr 2022 22:46:07
There would be no point in taking on Ten Hag and having RR as a consultant if the club is not going to support them 100%. The board and the egomaniacal Woodward have painted us into a corner. The owners must surely know that the value of their investment is at risk. Success is a prerequisite of sustained value and another arrogance induced failure could potentially sink the ship entirely. The budget for new players may be a little more than we expect simply because the downside risk is greater than the additional debt.


8.) 12 Apr 2022 22:49:30
If Van der Sar came with him, and Van Persie also, we would have a real setup. Perhaps ETH can get DVB firing on all cylinders again.


9.) 12 Apr 2022 23:52:52
Would love Nunez, he looks an absolute stud. Not being in UCL would likely kill that though, he is hot property I think.

Just bring in the right type of player and back him. Set realistic goals for developing the club back to where it belongs. Forget about glamorous Kane and Rice signings that get the press excited. Support the guy. Give him a proper chance and hopefully he is the next big epl manager.


10.) 13 Apr 2022 00:19:01
Rumours that Pogba is being offered 500k a week to stay. If that is the case, the club is gone to ruin. If Ten Hag has asked the club to try and keep him then I have zero faith in his ability to improve us. If he has not been included in the negotiation then it would appear that he has no control over transfers.
Pogba needed to leave the club a number of years ago and any attempt to keep him is absolutely ludicrous.


11.) 13 Apr 2022 05:43:36
First positive choice on a Long looking Road,
Owners and Board need to support him for his blueprint of football. Nomore signings focusing shirt sales, no more tolerance to crybabies and toxics, no more value preventing contract extensions, proper Chances to hungry Youth, keep Fans On-side, shrewd eye for deals doesn't mater whatever time of year it is. And than we can hope, things will go upside.

Need to have " Just Football" in mind.


12.) 13 Apr 2022 08:09:58
I think we'll see nunez a cm and akanji come in. Antony if martial leaves. I don't think we'll see a huge amount of signings this summer, ten hag will want to see who he can improve and what youth can step up.


13.) 13 Apr 2022 08:56:04
Good news if its true Bolger2 - still not confident in this lot getting ETH in without at least a caberet of cock ups before conceding.
The priority must be for whoever to start the clearout, possibles/ good business = DDG, MARTIAL, RASHFORD
Need to go/ oocontract = tuanzebe, awb, bailly, matic, mata, pogba, jones, lingard, cavani, ronaldo.
wouldnt lose sleep but harder to get rid set = maguire, shaw, varane.
Basically a club reset but we can't get rid of all those in one window and replace them in squad, even using the youth team?
2-3 could be used in bargaining deals and 5-6 are out of contract: that's still a lot of players to bring in but probably attainable. If we dont, we will be no further forward (propbably further behind) than at any time in the last 8 seasons.
Audioflynn, I do hope you're wrong re pogba but if you prove correct any info on how to get a refund for 2 x season tickets would be welcome!


14.) 13 Apr 2022 09:38:56
RedWhiskey, I tend to agree. I think it'll be a striker (hopefully Darwin Nunez, but there is a lot of competition for him), a CDM and a CB.

Lots of Rumours surrounding Timber, who obviously would help EtH by having another player who knows him in the squad. He looks a very good young player, I do worry a little with his height, as generally CB's under 6ft have struggled in the EPL. However, he does look like a genuine future world class player.

Ruben Neves links make a lot of sense as well. EPL proven and settled, ideal CDM for an EtH system and supposedly available.


15.) 13 Apr 2022 10:15:55
Shappy I think we may end up with palhinha or however it's spelt. Not sure neves offers enough defensively. Creative yes and deep lying but I don't think he's the midfield enforcer we need. We have the attacking mid in Bruno, the water carriers in Fred and mctominay but lack a purely defensive minded mid. Whilst Fred and mctominay shouldn't be a first choice I don't see us bringing in more than one midfielder just yet. Garner will get game time and I think dvb will too. If it goes disastrously in the midfield battles maybe we will look again in January or the following summer.

I really hope we don't spent massive on rice. Not worth the prices being banded about. We could sort a lot more positions with that sort of cash.


16.) 13 Apr 2022 12:20:39
RedWhiskey, with the possession heavy style EtH tends to play I don't think he will look for a defensive monster at CDM. For his style what the CDM can do with the ball is far more important than what they do off the ball.

For example Alvarez averages 1.7 tackles a game, 1.6 interceptions and 1.5 clearances. Averaging 4.8 defensive actions per game.

Even Gravenberch averages 1.5 tackles, 0.6 interceptions, and 0.6 clearances, totalling 2.7 defensive actions.

Compare that to McFred who manage 2.4 tackles each, 1.1 and 1.2 interceptions and 0.8 and 1.6 clearances per game. Giving our midfield an average of 9.5 defensive actions per game, compared to 7.5 defensive actions of the Ajax duo.

When we then look at the average number of passes those players make the United duo average 88.4 passes per game compared to the Ajax duo's 109.7 passes per game.

Foe EtH's style of play it is what a CDM can do on the ball that is far more valuable than what they do off it.

For that reason I think someone like Neves is far more likely than a CDM who is more specialised in making tackles.


17.) 13 Apr 2022 12:23:37
Just for context Ruben Neves averages more defensive actions than Edson Alvarez while making a similar number of passes, with more variation of passes, more long passes, and more key passes. All in a far more competitive league.


18.) 13 Apr 2022 12:25:50
At least with Pogba, the negotiations for him to go anywhere else are simple, with his contract expiring soon with us. I do expect him to go. Ten Hag is no fool. He wants players who can press in all positions, and Pogba is not that kind of player. Highly possible he could leave early which could then open up the next step in the MF quickly.


19.) 13 Apr 2022 19:27:40
I wouldn't be against neves but if you look at the top two sides in the prem in recent years, they've had fabinho and fernandinho/ rodri. I do think a more defensive minded player is needed in the prem if we are looking to get to a level they are at.


20.) 13 Apr 2022 19:42:00
RedWhiskey, I tend to agree. However, I expect EtH will start off with what he knows and trusts and will then learn the EPL and look make adjustments to his set up down the line.


 

 

11 Apr 2022 22:52:31
This rumours of other clubs wanting ten hag, i actually think is good news in a way

We actually get to see if the club actually care about the football and winning things and not just about the ££££££££.

Apprently ten hag wants assurences agreed for him to sign, if we lost out on him we all know its because the powers at be are like 90 percent of the players and don't give a crap.

Part of me still has hope that the club is trying to implement a structure and going forward we will start doing the right things.

The city v liverpool game is solid proof that when you stick to a plan, build a squad to match a managers way, buy the players to fit that style and stay on that plan even if there are some bumps along the way.

bolger2

1.) 12 Apr 2022 10:45:30
Club is backed up against the wall here. They will have to succumb to his requests if they want him and I think its an open secret now that he is the no.1 choice.

Interesting few weeks ahead. But if he does get the job, it will mean that they agree.

However, I'm not sure how solid the clubs word is.


2.) 12 Apr 2022 12:26:34
I don’t think it’s unreasonable that a manager coming into a club in the mess we are currently in would want more control over transfers and the overarching structure surrounding the team. The past ten years have shown that the current set up isn’t working and that managers will fail within it.

This is a key moment - either the club will cede control to Ten Hag or bring in another manager to fail within their run by committee structure.


 

 

25 Mar 2022 13:31:09
we all know what kind of stuff scouts look for in players when we go out and are looking for a certain type of player, I assume its a lengthy process,

but who is it that goes out and scouts managers? what do they look for and what type of scouting goes into looking for a manager,

there's obv more than just looking at his CV and thinking he's won "this" let's get him.

be interested to know if anyone knows what the process is and what typically happens.

can imagine its a lot different to looking at players.

Welcome are first signing. now let's get de jong done, a cb and a forward, any sales use it to get an added cm if possible and away we go.

bolger2

1.) 01 Jul 2022 19:20:36
Ornstein reporting we are in talks with Ajax for Martinez and he’s keen on the move. Looks like the club is moving for who ETH wants ??.


2.) 01 Jul 2022 20:00:54
If we can get de jong, martinez and anthony or gnarbry for me i like him, a rb and another cm i think that's the perfect window.

Lets hope we can get the players in, but i'm liking what i'm hearing about the training sessions already.


3.) 01 Jul 2022 21:49:20
It looks to me like emphasis has shifted away from Antony and onto Martinez with . gulp… Martial getting another chance. Don’t think that guy has ever sprinted in his life but I think Martinez would be a very useful signing.


4.) 01 Jul 2022 21:51:06
Martinez any good? Don’t know much about him.


5.) 01 Jul 2022 23:11:53
I reckon Martial's going to be worked so hard in training that he'll welcome the relative respite of an actual game. EtH is going to have to break him down and rebuild him if we're going to see any value for the £13m pa Woodward decided to reward him with, rather than let his contract run out.


6.) 02 Jul 2022 01:43:27
Martial has talent. He lacks attitude. He must surely be embarrassed by the failed trip to Spain. Maybe it brought him down a peg or two. Maybe EtH will sort his head out.


 

 

20 Jun 2022 17:25:07
I think timo werner would be a good shout under ten hag and the way he likes to play.

Dont shoot it down i know he's been a shadow of the player he was before he came

But haller wasnt exectly cutting up trees for westham and under ten hag especially in europe he looked a different player.

I get lower leuages and stuff but i think he is worth a shout.

Maybe see if they want martial in exchange ??.

bolger2

1.) 20 Jun 2022 18:14:03
Werner is a very good footballer, works very hard, excellent movement and really intelligent with his runs, opens lots of space for everyone else. He just isn't a good finisher and that was supposedly why he was bought.

Warner makes a team click and better as a wide forward.

Gets a lot of stick but that's solely because people judge him as a No 9.


2.) 20 Jun 2022 18:25:44
I’d do a straight swap, we’re either stuck with Martial as no one wants him, or could give Werner a go. Chelsea aren’t that stupid I’m sure ?.


3.) 20 Jun 2022 18:26:51
I'm not so sure. Werner seems to play his best football when given acres of space to run into and when he doesn't have to think too much and play more in instinct.

When presented with too many options he often delays making a decision and the space gets closed down. While if he can't use his pace to get in behind he struggles with his movement to find space.

For me he looks perfectly suited to a counter attacking team, rather than an intelligent possession side.

I'm not sure he's ideal for EtH's set up. I'd have thought someone like Luka Jovic might suit EtH's style better. He thrives from having players close by to play off of and uses good movement to find space. I wouldn't be against taking him on loan from Real Madrid for a season with a buy option. Could be a good way to bring in a player in a position of need without blowing the budget.


4.) 20 Jun 2022 18:30:59
Big no from me.


5.) 20 Jun 2022 19:07:19
Okay so Luka jovic is shappys new crush. Not sure why.


6.) 20 Jun 2022 19:42:11
I could be wrong but did shappy not desperately want Darmian before we signed him? I remember there was a poster really keen, but I can’t quite remember who it was for sure.

Whoever it was, that suggestion turned out well.


7.) 20 Jun 2022 21:29:19
Yes please to Timo Werner.


8.) 20 Jun 2022 22:04:05
To be fair I am sure we have all hold players we wanted signing who would/ have been busts.


 

 

09 Jun 2022 19:35:32
So what do people make of ten hag flying out to meet mendes?

Not comparing him with fergie but has a fergie feel, heard liverpool are trying to get a olauer you want and jumps on a flight to go talk to the agent to try save the deal.

bolger2

1.) 09 Jun 2022 19:47:20
OMG…. He phoned you on the way to the airport did he, to tell you that’s what he is doing!
This is getting worse by the minute.


2.) 09 Jun 2022 21:11:32
Bolger you going to lose your head by the time the window closes.


3.) 10 Jun 2022 09:57:42
Mendes also represents Asensio who we have been linked with too. So maybe that's what the meeting was about?


4.) 10 Jun 2022 10:03:29
It's a transfer rumour site. See no problem with what he's posted.


5.) 10 Jun 2022 12:06:32
Redwhisky, I didn't say there was. I love reading rumours to fill the time. I just wouldn't want to get too stuck in it.


6.) 10 Jun 2022 14:37:34
The club have officially denied that eth went to this meeting.


7.) 10 Jun 2022 18:31:23
Exactly Ken, some be;Evie all the drivel and don’t stop to think who let's out these stories to drive up price, it’s been going on for years…how many times was Ramos going to leave Madrid! Some people will never learn and realise it’s just business and well done if Agent or club as got another 10 mil by doing it. that’s life, in business to play on peoples thinking.


 

 

08 Jun 2022 23:16:02
So a new set of staff but same old dithering,

What actually was the plan that the club and ten hag sat down and talked about, what did we bs him in taking the job?

Why did he terminate his contract with ajax early to start his work at united,

We have sat and waited for the best part of 4 or 6 weeks discussing the likes of nunez and timber and de jong and we will most likely end up with none

So much for a different approach, no wonder we get called amatures

We should have had timber and nunez signed up by now like ten hag asked and then we concentrate on de jong.

Great way to start for ten hag as if his job ain't hard enough.

If anyone says the window isn't open other teams have already agreed to sign players we are just the same as always slow and pathetic like the way we play.

bolger2

1.) 08 Jun 2022 23:31:01
Stop reading twitter and it will make life seem a lot better. We will sign 4 or 5 players in the window, big deals take time and we don’t want to overpay for players as we have done in the past.

Apparently the club are doing their business a bit quieter this summer, not briefing the press all the time like Woodward used to, so anything you’re hearing is just for clicks.


2.) 08 Jun 2022 23:40:47
How do you know a) that we haven't made any offers, b) that other teams have not made better offers, c) that the players and clubs in question are the ones stalling, waiting to test the market, d) exactly who EtH really wants and who will fit into his plans, and e) how much of an overall transfer budget we have? If we go in and overspend on a player who really doesn't want to join us wouldn't that be exactly the sort of mistake we've been making time and time again. Is that what you're suggesting we should do?


3.) 09 Jun 2022 00:05:19
I am sure ETH will have not taken on the job without certain minimum guarantees about transfer activity. He knows how much of a rebuild is necessary and must have a list of targets.

Liverpool don't need lots of players so they can push the boat out on one player if necessary. We need four or five if possible and everyone knows how desperate we are so they will demand top top dollar on each transfer. Add to that the fact there are very very few really top top players leaving and that we are not in the champions league and it all results in a difficult transfer window.

We all would love Utd to sign players like Nunez De Jong to name just two but we have to be realistic and more importantly be patient.

I do think too many fans will consciously or subconsciously be expecting too much of this first transfer window. I don't care if takes two or three transfer windows to get things right. Do you guys reading this expect three or four big signings immediately and if they don't happen how disappointed will you be?


4.) 09 Jun 2022 00:33:59
Im not reading twitter and its not about being patience

Its a pretty well known fact that's been said on here more than once our main target for striker was nunez, main defender was timber/ torres

De jong just happend to become available

The difference between us and other clubs is when they want there A player they get them they don't dither and wait for 5 or 6 weeks of talks then go sorry mr ten hag youll have to go for plan b or c now.

If city want a player what do they do? They don't mess around for weeks they go get the player.

Its not about over spending its about being proactive and strong in what your plan is, if the play was to get nunez and timber for ten hag the club should have gone and got them.

But again we have shown how slow and poor we are in the market and we will now prob have to overpay to get them in or we end up with 2nd choice players.


Why start to change things and plan when we can't stick to the play we came up with.

Its really comical the way we are ran.

Look at villa, they had a plan, stevie g wanted xyz and they went and got them in.

We have just shown why we are a small dog with a big mouth but has been spayed.

Salford its not about big name signings, i wpuldnt say timber or nunez are big names but they are players the manager wanted

Hes been here what since may 16? And what have we done?

I have had patience for 10 years, now we looked to have changed direction and got people in to sort out the mess of what neglect the football side of the club has been left in and look we are still doing the same things and making the same mistakes.

No wonder ralf took the austria job, he saw what clowns are running things still and wanted out. Why be a consultant if no ones going to listen, pretty pointless.

But hey no need to worry we can always change the grand plan again.


5.) 09 Jun 2022 00:43:33
There is a reason why liverpool and citys recruitment has been so good and its because they identify the players the manager wants for that specific style

And they go in and get them.

They don't wait and then get 2nd 3rd and 4th choices, this is part of the reason we are where we are.

We are not quick enough in getting the right players in. We wait and waot and then miss out

For example if anyone listended to a colum woodward did after he left united we were actually in for thiago before liverpool but we waited and waited and then the powers at be didn't give the go ahead and liverpool came and swooped in.

Another one close but no cigar.

{Ed077's Note - Salah was about 4th choice player when Klopp was looking for a forward. Jota was 3rd on the list.


6.) 09 Jun 2022 01:46:45
Bolger, chill bud, don't stress. Give the window time to develop instead of panicking in June.


7.) 09 Jun 2022 06:45:30
Bolger you seem to know a hell of a lot about us and what’s going on behind the scenes, considering you don’t read Twitter what’s your source because you seem to know everything about ETH plans?


8.) 09 Jun 2022 07:05:41
Hi all
Let’s be honest what’s happening is no surprise we are unable to offer champions league so players will wait and see if champion league teams come in for them.
I hope that the new set up does not, like previous years, once number one or two target fails they bring in players over the hill to fill the squad and spend most time in the medical department!
Long time to go yet have patience until internationals have been completed players have a tan from hols then see the real reality and not media rumours!


9.) 09 Jun 2022 07:33:09
Don't forget that Liverpool have Financial problems aswell. The club have taken out quite a few loans over the past couple of years due to C.V. etc. They will need to sell players aswell. Mane will likely be sold this summer, but I'd imagine they would need to sell a couple more players aswell.


10.) 09 Jun 2022 08:33:43
its not football manager or fifa you don't just go out and buy as many players as you can. i suspect that he left Ajax early in order to asses the squad he has and see what he can improve behind the scenes and then make transfer decisions off the back of that. and to think we can sign the likes of nunez or anyone else that city, liverpool or any other big team have their sights on is wishful thinking. we are going to have to go for the best of the rest not the start signings you want.


11.) 09 Jun 2022 08:36:36
I try to tell myself that a bit of patience and planning is required with these things but watching the club stumble awkwardly over one transfer at a time and lose them one after another has been a problem throughout this awful period in our recent history. This taking our time and offering peanuts approach might be alright if other teams didn't exist.

I'll always try to take things with a pinch of salt that appear online - how do we really know anything after, in terms of who or what or when is being offered, but there is so much noise about from yesterday afternoon there must be something in it.


12.) 09 Jun 2022 10:50:45
Unfortunately we are all cynical due to previous experience and no amount of positivity will change that only actions.
Reality is that transfers are complicated, with other teams competing, players and agents having priorities we may or may not be able to meet due to our current position. The window does not officially open until tomorrow (does not stop others but is a reality) and the Internationals going on will delay things with players will delay things.
I think we will see movement on some of these over the next few weeks and it could be that negotiations are happening with players that we do not even know about, not much of the gossip so far seems to be coming from club which is a change.
Lets be patient and see what happens this month.

15.) 09 Jun 2022 13:42:50
I don't really 'get' the transfer process. Why they seem to drag on for yonks. Why if a player simply isn't interested that two weeks later we're still talking to their agent - isn't that something that can be established pretty quickly? I guess the whole thing is a giant game of cat and mouse without clubs wanting to reveal their hand too soon for fear of looking too keen to the selling club or alerting other clubs to the interest. And we don't know what (if anything) has happened here regarding Nunez, whether he simply has his heart on one other team.


16.) 09 Jun 2022 13:53:52
Hi Ed
Many conflicting rumours on potential incoming players.
Who do you think the smart money should be on for us to sign?

Agree with most replies that we just have to be realistic and patient. Thanks Ed 077 for showing other clubs have similar problems.


20.) 09 Jun 2022 17:46:16
You lot moan when the club was letting out potential signings now the same lot are moaning about guessing the clubs potential signings, you lot not got a life.
ETH will sign who he wants if the player fancies it too, no amount of whining and making up stories by anyone on here change that.
It’s business media makes stuff up, clubs make stuff up, players make stuff up, agents make stuff up oh and forgot Shappy and Bolger make stuff up!

What will be will be.

Duvin no one is guessing on the target, the eds and multiple accurate people have all named tbe same players.

Romarno stated 2 months ago united wanted nunez and here we still are

And if you check all my previous posts i never actually post anything about players but i'm relying the info on from someone who is more accurate than most

I wouldn't call it making stuff up.

Clearlly maguire isn't the only issue, that defence is the worst defence united have ever had.

Wouldnt keep 1 of them, even varane, multiple champs winner, world cup winner and he is just as bad as the rest.

All 4 full backs are average, where do we start we are clearlly unable to offload them all but where to we go from here.

Positionally there are awful, no one speaks, they are always the wrong side and they can't play it out from the back.

Poor de gea is surrounded by muppets.

Ironic thing is de gea probably isn't the style of goalkeeper that's suited to ten hags system.

Which means we may end up needing a whole new back 5, although wouldn't mind seeing henderson in goal and Varane with a new partner.


2.) 23 Apr 2022 18:20:58
Varane is rubbish as well. If you haven’t yet seen it you never will. Injured all the time too.

{Ed014's Note - apparently he is good at heading the ball out from the back, not sure what else you want! ?‍♂️

Have been saying it FZZ. He is just a fancy name and not the captain and didn't cost 80m. He hasn't been any improvement from what we had.

If your good enough your tall enough why are people obsessed with our cbs being tanks.

If you have a brain and a good player you don't need strenth,

How many strikers are units in the prem, what strikers hold the ball up and use strenth very little.

If he's good enough which i'm sure ten hag knows himself.

I think he will stsy at brentford, makes more sense for him, family settled, has danish team mates, danish manager and he's going to play more given the world cup is in december aswell.

Dont think he's the type of plsyer to choose money.

If we can get de jong, martinez and anthony or gnarbry for me i like him, a rb and another cm i think that's the perfect window.

Lets hope we can get the players in, but i'm liking what i'm hearing about the training sessions already.

We have saved around 50 million in wages from the free contracts that have left

Add the 25 percent in wage drop for no UCL if that makes much difference

Im hoping jones bailly telles awb martial go, will tunzebue leave aswell as williams although i like williams

But if we get de jong this lb a cb and a forward plus a late cm addition depending on sales i think that will be a great window

Let tan hag and his proper coaches coach.

Can not wait for the season to start

Come on the boys.

So it only matters if an offer is put in that means you want the player

It was put by the eds on here many times city were interested.

But they were interested ken that is clear.

I agree mumbles with all what you say.

He is not good enough but in the season we just had he was one if the only few players that gave a crap

And if like some other players who are getting a clean slate if ten hag can imprive him which good managers can he might shock a few in here.

Not saying he's world class or will be, but he's what the rest of the teams attitude shoukd be.
