AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu is 'very, very likely' to join Manchester United next summer. That is according to Bild's Christian Falk, who claims the Red Devils are already in advanced talks with his agent over a potential deal.

Just read the above. Also being reported in SempreMilan. Any observations by Eds?

Haven’t heard anything about him but at 26 he surely doesn’t fit the profile of player OGS would be interested in.


1.) 26 Nov 2020 17:04:08
[Ed002]: Hakan Calhanoglu (AM/ LW) Player wants a new contract - Milan could oblige - it may depend on what happens with loanee Bahim Diaz. Atletico and Juventus have asked his German-based agent if a move is possible for them. The agent remains keen on the idea to try the player out in England or Germany.}


2.) 26 Nov 2020 17:39:10
Thanks Ed002. Appreciated. What will be will be but he doesn’t appear to play positions we’re deficient in. Agent creating a market?

{Ed002's Note - The agent has been talking with Atletico and Juventus who both have a need an he is a cheap solution. He will likely agree a new deal with Milan which is what he wants - and he gets a good deal with taxes in Italy. As I have said the driver will be talks with Real Madrid over several matters and that includes BD. The agent is doing nothing wrong.}


3.) 26 Nov 2020 18:01:06
Thanks again Ed002. Your insight is always enlightening and welcome. I didn’t intend to give the impression I thought the agent was doing anything wrong. That’s his job after all.


4.) 27 Nov 2020 11:44:54
@scoobydog because he’s so old at 26?!
Are you Meryn Trant?


5.) 27 Nov 2020 13:04:23
Prodigal please explain yourself re Meryn Trant.
OGS seems to be shaping a younger profile team hence the post was supposed to be more of a question than a statement.

Reading interesting snippets re Marc Overmars and Edwin van der Sar are becoming of interest to United after they have hinted as to their time in Holland possibly coming to an end. Okay it is in the Mail but being picked up by other outlets as well. Any comments or observations from Ed's? I would love for it to be true.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what "are becoming of interest to United" means. It is no secret that the pair may look for an interesting option next summer of the one after but I don't see how Manchester United would come in to this.}


1.) 15 Nov 2020 19:49:27
Nor me Ed002. I was quoting and hoped you might be able to throw light upon it.


 

 

15 Nov 2020 08:46:30
Being reported that Alex Telles tested positive for C.V. again yesterday Saturday 14th) .


 

 

10 Nov 2020 10:18:29
Hearing more rumbles re Greenwoods attitude. Latest is a suggested bust up with Bruno re his lackadaisical attitude during training, arriving late for training etc. I do hope we don’t have another Ravel prepared to squander his talent.


1.) 10 Nov 2020 12:16:01
Isn’t it a coincidence that another young English forward for us gets it in and the press? And every time there’s an apparent story it’s Bruno who’s involved in a “bust up” or argument.

I’m not saying there’s not anything in the stories, but they are more than likely exaggerated. If mason wasn’t performing in training he shouldn’t be picked.


2.) 10 Nov 2020 12:17:54
This would be a bigger waste of talent imo. It’s difficult to comprehend a young player with the world at his feet can have such a rubbishty attitude. I think all of us would give our left testicle to be in his position.


3.) 10 Nov 2020 12:41:39
It was the Daily Mail, lads. Come on, now 😁.


4.) 10 Nov 2020 13:00:19
Not only Nouvamp.


5.) 10 Nov 2020 13:27:05
Fair enough, Scoobs.


6.) 11 Nov 2020 01:04:51
colan if the lads acting like a knobhead why should he not be called out. if he did it for england what is the difference doing it at united.

{Ed0666's Note - Arguably it’s a worse offense doing it for you’re country.


7.) 11 Nov 2020 10:20:20
Daily Mail? Seriously fellas? They have an agenda against a young, successful man of colour? Who knew?


8.) 11 Nov 2020 10:57:29
It wasn’t only the Mail. Man of colour? You will be expected to resign now.


9.) 11 Nov 2020 12:22:46
World has gone mad scooby. Media all over it like a rash.


10.) 11 Nov 2020 13:08:14
Indeed SAF.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is confident that Man Utd midfielder Andreas Pereira will join the club "in the next two or three days" 🤝.

Simon Jordan (Talksport) branded Gareth Southgate the ‘international Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ in a damning assessment of the England manager. 😂😂😂.


1.) 16 Nov 2020 16:59:37
Interestingly enough I think Southgate would be ideal for the role that Greg Clarke has just stepped down from. Like Ole I just don't think he is the right manager to get the best out of the players.


2.) 16 Nov 2020 19:39:13
I literally laughed out loud as I read it. 🤣.


3.) 18 Nov 2020 12:23:38
They both do play a similar brand to be fair. Overly reliant on counter attacking and set pieces. Devoid of creativity in open play.


 

 

13 Nov 2020 12:09:34
Woodward publicly backs Ole:
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward publicly backed Solskjaer saying: "On the pitch, while there is still hard work ahead to achieve greater consistency, we remain absolutely committed to the positive path we are on under Ole as the team continues to develop. ‘.


1.) 13 Nov 2020 14:18:46
Well this could mean one of two things.

Either Ole's job is safe and the powers that be feel he is doing a good job and moving the club in the right direction.

Or, they are thinking about sacking him, but need to keep a "United" public image. So is backing him publicly.


2.) 13 Nov 2020 14:21:49
Blind leading the blind.


3.) 13 Nov 2020 16:59:25
Votes of confidence do not always achieve what they set out to do. Usually it’s look over your shoulder time. We will see.


4.) 13 Nov 2020 17:15:41
I agree with Red Man, the only manager I can actually remember getting the dreaded vote of confidence and still being in a job 3 months later was actually Ole himself last December.


5.) 13 Nov 2020 17:36:17
Shappy

I would be guessing but given the financial numbers I suspect they want to portray stability more than usual. It can be unsettling to shareholders if there is uncertainty

Nice to agree by the way.


6.) 13 Nov 2020 17:37:44
Id imagine they will stick with him unless things take a significant turn for the worse.


7.) 13 Nov 2020 19:35:25
Vote of confidence from the board? That means the last result against Everton gave him another 1 maybe 2 premiership games in the job.


8.) 14 Nov 2020 13:45:25
What like we drop to 16th Ken? 😂.


9.) 14 Nov 2020 22:49:33
Only way they will sack Ole is if he goes four or five matches without a win and the team plays badly.


 

 

07 Nov 2020 23:13:39
I can’t get excited about today. Okay we needed the win and we got it. But let’s be honest Everton played the sort of game that suited us and were way to open. We were still guilty of, at times, poor and naive defending and still a lot of wayward passing and loss of possession.
One swallow doth not a summer make and I’ll not be at all surprised to see a major disaster in our next game.


1.) 08 Nov 2020 01:34:32
Yes everton were poor, everyone we ever beat always is, I’ve pointed this out a few times, sometimes you just have to give credit, good win and hopefully we can go on one of them good runs.


2.) 08 Nov 2020 08:09:53
Fred and McT were fundamental for our win. They won a lot of duels and possession for rest of the players to flourish.


 

 

09 Oct 2020 10:35:50
anybody able to justify Lingard included in the UCL 'A' squad ahead of Greenwood who isn't? Given that Greenwood is a regular starter in the EPL and Lingard isn't. I am confused!


1.) 09 Oct 2020 10:39:21
Greenwoods age and homegrown status means he can be on the b list which allows the club to place him in the UCL squad 24 hours before a matchday.

Lingards age means he has to be in the A list if i understand correctly.


2.) 09 Oct 2020 10:40:33
Greenwood is in the squad. He doesn't have to be listed because he is home grown and under a certain age.


3.) 09 Oct 2020 10:41:01
Fairly sure that Greenwood doesn’t need to be named due to his age coming through the youth team.


4.) 09 Oct 2020 10:54:05
The club put out a tweet explaining the exclusion of Greenwood, Brandon Williams and Mengi. They are homegrown and U21 so don't need to be registered in the Assist. They can be included in the Valuation which can be updated until upto 24hrs before the kickoff on the matchdays.


5.) 09 Oct 2020 11:06:43
*A-list not assist
*B-list not valuation.


6.) 09 Oct 2020 12:09:54
Haha imagine thinking they picked lingard and not Greenwood. Same every year.


7.) 09 Oct 2020 14:27:48
Flip sake, Scooby. Do you not play Football Manager? 😁.


8.) 09 Oct 2020 15:08:25
Noucamp 😂😂😂 Actually no I don’t as it happens.


9.) 09 Oct 2020 20:52:42
It's where I get all my knowledge on squad registrations, mate 😁.


10.) 10 Oct 2020 14:22:07
I’m getting the impression it’s not required to. 😂
Thanks folks. All is now clear now. Fair to say I near parked a log when I first read the news. Phew.


 

 

05 Oct 2020 22:32:00
Telles apparently feels the “great honour” joining United and “cannot wait to pull on the famous shirt”. He appears unaware we’re only buying for our bench alongside DVDB. 😂.


1.) 06 Oct 2020 02:56:38
Or maybe they both are going to dislodge the ones already in the first team - both shaw and pogba haven't been at their best anyhow so wouldn't be a surprise. However, is Ole bold enough to make the decision to bench shaw and pogba is another question all together.

Will soon be moot anyway as heading the ball will be banned soon enough so high crosses will become obsolete.

Woodward has released a statement stating the board will back Ole in the summer transfer window. Appears the board have ‘acted’.

For all the good I saw and there could have been more good with possibly a goal or two for Cavani had Rashford not made bad decisions I still cannot get over the defensive weakness. A decent team or even this team if they had there scoring boots would have scored a few. Okay they spurned their chances but we gave them a few and after the subs we suddenly looked extremely vulnerable.
Taking the positives though we did look very good at times going forward. It's clear that Telles, DVDB and Cavani have to start more. Donny keeps us moving at pace and looks a great player. If only our defence wasn't so suspect we could field a more proactive midfield more often. But you just know that when fit Pogba will start and DVDB will be benched and we will need two DM's. Frustrating.
