Rumour that Real and Dortmund have an agreement in place for Halland for 2022.

yer man

1.) 19 Aug 2021 16:13:52
Let them, could not care less. We missed out on better players than him in the past.


2.) 19 Aug 2021 16:17:04
This sort of thing can happen if you have an open dialogue and good working relationship with the players agent.


3.) 19 Aug 2021 16:27:35
Who cares? Not me he was not an option for united.


4.) 19 Aug 2021 16:50:33
Lol shappy or maybe what the agent is demanding is not something we want to do.

We have greenwood anyway let him play in the striker position.


5.) 19 Aug 2021 16:58:58
Leeds born, City supporting footballer whose dad's leg got taken off by a United captain.
Think we had more chance of signing Gerrard in his prime.


6.) 19 Aug 2021 16:59:15
An open dialogue and a good working relationship with the players agent? Sorry but Perez refuses to deal with Raiola so to me it's nonsense. Perez and Raiola's relationship is at best as fractured as ours is with Mino.


7.) 19 Aug 2021 17:58:00
Perez is a president and doesn't deal with transfers.

Same as Pep is a manager and doesn't deal with transfers.


8.) 19 Aug 2021 18:11:10
Just out of interest Shappy, how many of Raiola’s players since Ibrahimovic was sold to Barcelona in 2009 have been sold to Madrid or teams managed by Guardiola?


9.) 19 Aug 2021 20:42:47
Isn't he JesseMessi's agent?


10.) 19 Aug 2021 22:04:24
Not any more Stan. They split last year. As did lukaku.


11.) 19 Aug 2021 22:42:57
Don't worry we will get Kane in 3 years when he is knackered. Probably pay more than d asking price of today too.


12.) 20 Aug 2021 07:25:22
Ed002 already said that Haaland was offered to United, but the amateurs rejected the opportunity.

{Ed002's Note - That was before he joined Dortmund.}


13.) 20 Aug 2021 10:42:02
we rejected because we didn't want to agree to the buyout clause that his agent wanted putting in TRD.

going Dortmund was better for his development anyway

will be interesting to see where he goes next, i think madrid.


14.) 20 Aug 2021 21:48:54
That's not true bolger.


 

 

10 Aug 2021 11:31:31
Rumours today that we are interested in tolisso and jovic, is there any weight in these and what do people know about them and do you think they would suit us and the EPL?

yer man

{Ed002's Note - Corentin Tolisso (CM) BM are looking to upgrade. Juventus and Lyon have rejected the opportunity to sign the player as both have other targets. West Ham have been struggling with their midfield targets and have asked after a price for the player - if it is below €20M it might be viable. Injuries and loss of form have resulted in Bayern Munich having his agent look for a solution elsewhere.
Luca Jovic (S) there was the option to return to Eintract Frankfurt on a loan with an obligation to buy but it depended on selling Andre Silva and not replacing him - but they opted for the well thought of Rafael Borre. Milan have a sustained interest but have opted for a cheaper solution. Inter want to take him as cover but they have much preferred options. Roma were offered him but the coach turned him Real Madrid will offer him in part exchange for others.}


1.) 10 Aug 2021 11:44:25
thank you for that ed 02.


2.) 10 Aug 2021 19:17:35
I'd imagine he'll end up at Liverpool, they seem quite keen on signing injury prone players😂.


 

 

27 Apr 2021 11:22:03
I don't know if this has been covered but with the rumours of united interested in Varane and pau Torres, has that stopped now Bailly has signed a new contract? Personally I'd have sold Bailly, due to his injury record, and tried to get both of them. They would be a great balanced back two but with Maguire being captain and costing £80m I guess he's not losing his prominence any time soon.
Failling that, If jones and rojo go, I'd bring in Torres first as we don't have a left footed CB. Might this be an option or are all bets of since the ESL collapse?

Sorry for the rambling but I hope you can work out what I'm getting at.

Thanks in advance. YM.

yer man

{Ed002's Note - No, Manchester United still have an interest in adding a CB and both players remain on that lengthy list.}


1.) 27 Apr 2021 11:38:31
thank you,
hopefully we get someone near the top of the list then rather than our sixth option :-)


2.) 27 Apr 2021 12:08:10
Rojo has gone.


3.) 27 Apr 2021 12:57:58
Centre back (Torres), defensive midfielder (Rice) and striker (Silva) would do very nicely.


4.) 27 Apr 2021 22:15:18
Not convinced about Silva. Is he really going to get 20+ league goals a season? I would love to give two of really good u23 team forwards a chance

And we desperately need another creative attacking midfielder.


5.) 27 Apr 2021 22:24:03
The defence is starting to look settled to me. My prediction is that no defender willl be coming in. All resources will go towards a CF.


6.) 28 Apr 2021 09:47:53
We need a CB, Varane, Kounde, Pau Torres for me in that order.

A CDM in the mould of Rice would enable us to play with one holding midfielder for certain games. Giving us a more offensive option along side them for breaking down those deep sitting teams.

Then for me a creative forward is more important than a ST. Are problem is that our strikers don't get enough good quality chances. We see when Bruno struggles we struggle. So a RW option who'll create goals rather than look to score them is essential. While Sancho might be the dream, his cost will be prohibitive. Raphinha at Leeds could be a great dark horse option. EPL proven, has a good on field rapour with Bruno. While is also capable of doing something special off the cuff to make a chance completely on his own.

A summer of Varane, Rice and Raphinha would be amazing. Although with our owners I doubt we'll see anything close to that good a summer.


7.) 28 Apr 2021 11:24:18
Are Varane, Kounde, Torres that much better than Lindelof - not from what I have seen.
We won't sign a RW - we have Greenwood and just paid best part of 50m on Diallo and Pallestri.
I honestly think big money on a striker, a back-up RB and a few younger players will be the extent of our business.


8.) 28 Apr 2021 11:57:39
Varane expensive and would question why real would sell him only to pay alaba big wages? Kounde don't know but won't be cheap would probably look to torres, - pace and young but again price when we come knocking? White and milinkovic could be the better options with fees and wages - also white played epl let go jones, tuanzebe (dont think he'll get his chance now) and wouldve said bailly but just extended so lindlehof. Rice would be good business but we desperately need a forward and would part ways with Martial. Tbh can't see all of that happening with C.V., budgets and we still unsure on sanctions for the esl.


9.) 28 Apr 2021 15:16:25
One thought about Torres is he plays left of centre and it's this area we are thin on if Ole is looking for balance.


10.) 28 Apr 2021 15:26:01
jgb, Varane is arguably one of the top 3 CB in the world.
4 times Champions League and a world cup winner.
Kounde and Pau Torres are being targeted by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern. Ofcourse they are miles better than Lindelof and Maguire.

Having a fast CB is essential as Ole intends to play a high line.


11.) 29 Apr 2021 00:03:00
Ben White looks like a young Jones to me, no thanks! Not seen much of the other go-to CB names, looks like the Leipzig pair are off to Bayern/ Liverpool too. Feels like we have a settled back four and Lindelof is playing as well as he has. Steady but unspectacular. I’d like to see a more mobile younger CB come in.
Rice will cost a fortune once English and Utd tax are added. Personally can’t see what the fuss is about. Ndidi would cost half as much.


12.) 29 Apr 2021 00:30:39
No disrespect but Ole has no clue as to what he wants to play. Speaks it during interviews and does the complete.


13.) 29 Apr 2021 08:58:17
Spenno, Leicester charged us 80m rising to 85m for Harry "Slabhead" Maguire. Ndidi is twice as important to how they play and a much bigger "key" player for them. They have almost certainly qualified for the UCL this year. In what world would they charge us less than 80m for Ndidi?

I agree Rice will be expensive. The "United" tax is something we have to pay for every player. The "English" tax is just one of those things.

But more often than not you get what you pay for. If you want a top class CDM who is proven in the EPL then you will pay a huge fee for them.

If you spend half as much on a player who has never played in the EPL then it's a gamble.

Last summer I was one of the people who thought Donny at 40m was a better option than Grealish at 70m. In hindsight it's hard to say that was the right call. Maybe Grealish might have gone off the rails or not have the mentality to step up to a top side. But he can certainly play in the EPL and have a big impact. Something we still don't know if Donny can.

Players like Laimer or Zakaria might be half the price of a Rice or Ndidi, but we know the latter two can cut in in the EPL.

Money will be tight this summer, its important that as many of our signings hit the ground running as possible.


14.) 30 Apr 2021 10:32:34
I suspect Cavani will sign for one more year. £14million and one last shot at the CL is a pretty strong draw, especially as he is probably the second name on the team sheet now after Bruno.


15.) 30 Apr 2021 13:21:21
I hope so grim.


 

 

10 Feb 2021 10:43:57
With some chatter around Ramos being interested in joining us, is there any real interest


or is this just about trying to talk up a better contract again?

sorry if its already been covered
im still uncertain about this, yes he is old (as footballers go, still a pup in the grand scheme of things ) and this doesn't give us much longevity yet he would bring some much needed insight and experience and maybe help the defenders we have with potential.

what are everyone else's view on this?

yer man

1.) 10 Feb 2021 10:53:59
Not sure why we would look at him.

Yes we need a couple of new CB's but Ramos would be scraping the barrel.

{Ed002's Note - Sergio Ramos (CB) PSG wanted a January agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer but the player is apparently reluctant to commit just yet. Real Madrid want to extend his contract but want to reduce the package he currently gets to help their quest to cut costs - if that gap can somehow be resolved it is the most likely solution. Interest from both the Far East and the Middle East is not attractive for the player. Milan offer a potential option because of tax advantages in Italy - but they will probably add Fikayo Tomori and it is likely the second CB they are looking for will be younger. Whilst the Premier League would provide an interesting challenge for the player, at just about 35 years old with significant wage demands it makes little sense for the clubs. I am not aware of any approach from Manchester United and would expect them to look at a younger long term solution.}


2.) 10 Feb 2021 11:14:59
thanks very much for your insight Ed.

and i see certain benefits Waz but definitely short lived but with the difference Cavani is making it would be more about teaching our current defenders the ropes, for all the money we have spent on CB's we still lack some experience to guide those already in the ranks.


3.) 10 Feb 2021 12:15:37
Yer man our CB’s aren’t babies! They’re not good but are probably as good as they will get.


4.) 10 Feb 2021 13:47:26
Thanks for the detailed info Ed002.

yer man - We've been linked with Pau Torres and Ben white. I know it's not Fantasy Football, but if possible I'd try for both if we can move some of our current CBs on.

Lindelof, Bailly (always injured) and Jones should be moved on with suitable replacements brought in.

I don't see any way we can move Maguire on. Nobody will be able to afford him surely.

{Ed002's Note - Pau Torres (CB) Manchester City have him as an option. Manchester United have him as first choice but only if sufficient sales are made. Barcelona has a sustained interest but price will likely be an issue and they may look to horse trade some players - but little will become clear before the election is completed. Bayern Munich have him as one of three primary targets to fill the two CB slots they need to address in the summer.

Ben White (CB) an alternative to Pau Torres for Manchester United, but seen as expensive because of the "English premium". Spurs have sustained interest but the funding will go on other priorities. Liverpool could look to white to boost their HG quota if they opt for aan expensive addition. Brighton will look to hang on to him.


5.) 10 Feb 2021 14:49:38
Would be a step back. Red card waiting to happen and very much into his twilight years.


6.) 10 Feb 2021 15:10:47
We are also linked with Jules Kounde amd Ibrahima Konate; both being suggested by respected scouts/ third parties.

{Ed002's Note - Jules Kounde (CB) Sevilla rejected a significant offer from Manchester City last summer and Monchi has confirmed that Manchetser City remain keen still. He was recommended to Manchester United by an advisor but there has not been any approach just yet - and others seem more likely at this time. Real Madrid were the other side who were keen last summer and they are looking to add two CBs this summer with one agreed in principle, the other will be one of four on their shortlist which includes Jules Kounde. With one of those four likely not obtainable it would then come down to balancing the books with other sales and purchases.
Ibrahima Konate (CB) could emerge as an option for first choice for Liverpool in the summer - Liverpool have been talking with his agent but whether or not Konate has been discussed in detail is not known, but his agent offered a different player to Liverpool. RBL will want to hang on to him as they will lose Upamecano in the summer. Money would possibly be an issue for Liverpool and any further illegal approaches to RBL players would no doubt result in a complaint now. Expect interest from Spurs as well and possibly Manchester United but he is far from first choice for them. Chelsea have shown no interest in him to date.}


7.) 10 Feb 2021 17:30:00
Thanks so much for all detailed information regarding CBs Ed002, always appreciate your precious time.

Looks like the “biggest” clubs (ie United, City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern, Real and Barca) are all looking to sign the best (or at least the most talked about) centre backs this summer. Concerning as a United fan to hear that Bayern want TWO of them this summer: guessing Upemecano is pretty close for them, leaving them needing one more: and if Torres is one of the two. Gulp!

Guessing Real also will get Alaba from Bayern over the line, so will need another one also. (though isn’t Varane soon to be out of contract? )

Hoping City’s need for a top CB is less pressing g now given Diaz’s amazing form, and Liverpool look more financially constrained than others.

Thus, looks like we’re all fighting for a small elite pool of CBS!

Ed002, I know you’ve been amazing and given feedback on Pau Torres, Upemecano, White and Konate but don’t suppose you’d mind giving us your opinion about who else might be on our priority list of CB targets as well as Torres and White please? No worries if you can or you feel that you’ve given us enough already.

{Ed002's Note - Raphael Varane (CB) and that is about it for CBs. If he does not sign a renewal he will be sold in the summer - possibly leaving Real Madrid needing to add three CBs. Manchester United have other targets but could be tempted. Do not be surprised to see Spurs rejig their summer plans to buy him. Mr Mourinho will look to a way to sign Varane for Spurs in the summer. The player wants a new challenge and PSG will likely push for him in their quest for a leading French player.}


8.) 10 Feb 2021 18:16:48
Thanks so much again for your wonderful information that keeps us all intrigued and excited in these dark times and for your precious time. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


9.) 11 Feb 2021 15:43:38
Great insight as always Ed002.
Ramos for me would be a disaster, I am not convinced that his antics and play away from Spain/ Real Madrid will work quite so well. He will miss certain games due to the amount of red cards he gets. Icon and great player for RM but i feel we need to pass.
Verane I would be interested in if he can stay fit, crazy to think he is only 27 as seems like he has been around forever. Whilst a right footer I believe he can play on the left side of the CB's which is the side we need to prioritise. Maybe a swap deal with Pogba as both are entering the end of their deals.
Of the other ones mentioned I think that Torres, Konate or Upamecano (probably headed to RM/ Bayern) should be where we look as a strong leader who could make the difference to the other CB that plays with them. Diaz and Van Dyke made such a huge difference to the whole unit and this is the type that we should be looking at.

{Ed002's Note - As I said, I am not aware of any interest in Ramos.}


 

 

21 Sep 2020 11:05:14
Hi eds, Is there any interest from united in Marc Roca of espanyol?
I know it might seem like we are overloaded in midfield but still think an out and out deep lying midfielder is required and they might give the defense some much needed protection when Matic is playin. Roca seems to be one of the best prospects in the position.

yer man

{Ed002's Note - None.}


1.) 21 Sep 2020 11:29:12

13 Aug 2021 23:11:20
Saw a rumour online that Varane will wear 19.
Amad has been announced as 16 (mu app)
Can any of the eds help with whether the shirt number could ha e held up the final details of a signing and how do image rights for a number usually play out if at all relevant?

yer man

{Ed002's Note - No it wouldn’t.}


1.) 14 Aug 2021 00:44:52
I get that players have brands etc which have been built around their Jersey no. There is also a big deal made of certain Jersey numbers at different clubs and a desire to keep players happy and comfortable if they like a certain no.
I'm not suggesting this is the case with varane at all as I've no idea what caused the delay, but I can see where clubs can run into issues.
By all accounts martial didn't like losing no 9 to zlatan.
No7 is a coveted Jersey at united as is 11 imo . 10 at Madrid no9 at Newcastle.
Messi has gone back to his old no 30 at psg so no10 was not a big deal breaker to him obviously.
Clubs can't swap and change too often as fans pay for replica jerseys so all in all its a tricky one.
Personally apart from nos11 7 and maybe 16 at united there are no other iconic nos at the club despite us having had great players in all positions at the club.
I'm not even sure at Liverpool what the iconic nos are? Maybe 7 9 or 6.
Chelsea? City? Spurs?


2.) 14 Aug 2021 01:07:08
The issue is image rights. He has signed his contract prob be announced weekend.


3.) 13 Aug 2021 23:22:00
Thanks ed, just trying to come up with a valid reason for the delay and there doesn't seem to be one 😂.


4.) 14 Aug 2021 09:47:30
Apparently we are still trying to cross t's after having dotted all the i's. Sounds valid!


 

 

20 Apr 2021 23:36:32
I wonder if any of the eds can shed a light on the players contract scenario if we had continued with the esl. If their were clauses for champions league wins and we were no longer in it through the clubs esl decision, could the player claim breach of contract?

yer man

{Ed002's Note - I have have no idea what you are talking about.}


1.) 20 Apr 2021 23:48:32
Sorry for not being clear if there was a win bonus in the contract for winning the champions league and the club pulled out of the competition could the player claim breach of contract and leave? I know its hypothetical now but just curious.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


2.) 20 Apr 2021 23:54:14
Thank you.


 

 

18 Apr 2021 22:16:36
I wonder if any of the eds can shed any light on the rumoured new super league and why the suggested teams think it is better than the current set ups of national leagues and eufa competitions

Thanks in advance.

yer man

{Ed002's Note - It is being driven by thoughts of a different future and more money.}


1.) 18 Apr 2021 22:32:58
Thanks Ed but rich fat cats getting fatter isn't likely to benefit the majority of clubs and potentially alienate fans who just like things as they are. I don't disagree that eufa and fifa maybe need something like this to shake up their power bases. They are surely currently their own closed shop but not sure this is the best option.

{Ed002's Note - You are making this sound like something new. These ideas are discussed regularly and folks from China and the US all want to offer up a money making idea. Only last year Manchester United and Liverpool’s owners conspired over Project Bigfoot. The Liverpool owners want to start building a soccer empire and have linked up with Damian Comolli’s Toulouse after selling more than 10% of their business. Other clubs have different drivers - the Spanish clubs to get out of their huge financial holes. All the rights would be traded to JP Morgan for underwriting funding for x years.}


2.) 18 Apr 2021 22:46:55
Yea it's no longer about clubs who have formed out of works teams it's all about big business and making money. I find that sad.


3.) 18 Apr 2021 22:50:34
I guess that's what happens when clubs are run by bankers, investors and economists.

{Ed0666's Note - you spelt bankers incorrectly mate


 

 

01 Nov 2020 18:45:06
Far too cautious in everything today
Cautious in the selection and cautious in everything they did. Pogba is always prone for blundering into someone.
They seem to afraid to play attacking football at old Trafford.

yer man

1.) 01 Nov 2020 18:53:31
Anyone know how many penalties Pogba has conceded for us now? I think it's at least 4 or 5.


2.) 01 Nov 2020 18:57:18
Arnie, Pogba has conceded 3 penalties since June.

No other player has conceded that many in the whole of 2020.


3.) 01 Nov 2020 19:05:51
It's not a rumour!


4.) 01 Nov 2020 20:01:19
Are we blaming everything on Pogba again?


5.) 01 Nov 2020 22:17:57
I just thought we could blame him for things that he's responsible for. Pretty radical, I know, but it's a change from all or nothing.

To reply to your first query grim they would get camvinga for free next year but so could united or psg
So maybe they are paying over the odds now to make sure they get him and make it look like they made a premium signing because they weren't getting mbappe.

Grim i recently read that he had been used as cm, dm, rb, and rw but saw himself as a deep playing midfielder and wanted to play there thus his wanting to leave.

yer man

{Ed077's Note - I think you maybe thinking about Marcos Llorente. He played quite a bit at RB/RWB for Atleti last season. Although he isn't looking for a move away.


BTW Atletico can't afford his wages and bonuses, hence why he wasn't played as much last season. His form and performance were mostly secondary.

For what it's worth I think he is a fabulous player, 2nd best CM in the world behind Kante.

Ive stated this too previously. A Two man midfield with mc t or dvb slightly deeper like carrick used to play and bruno being a proper midfielder an AM and not a false striker. Pogba dvb and jesse to change it from time to time. Rashford left sancho right with martial and greenwood covering or alliwing them ti switch wi gs during the game like we used to with cr7 and giggs. Then two from ronaldo cavani greenwood rashford and martial. Loads of ootions there.
Letting matic and mata go and getting another proper deeper midfielder like ndidi philips or bissouma. Neves has mouhtino behind him usually so doesn't cut it for me.

For me it still has to be George Best. he had balance, tenacity to tease players like Ronaldo does and great all round, right, left, head. Probably the best dribbler you could get and with those boots, balls and pitches. Ronaldo definitely goes close and his longevity is an example for those who seem to think over thirty and its a downhill slope. Only Stanley Matthews kept the quality going for so long. Best was the greatest but Ronaldo definitely the best in recent times.
