Any truth in United being interested in Alex Sandro Eds? Or is Rose our number one target. Thanks as always.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Rose is the target - Sandro wants elsewhere his agent told MU when they enquired.}

13 Dec 2017 18:04:48
Thanks for the reply ed02. So would I be right in saying he's Chelsea bound?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement with any side at present - but with representatives of clubs and agents all being co-located for an evening and either a day or two many options have been discussed between them.}

13 Dec 2017 20:13:50
Interesting. Thanks again.

What's the situation with Mkhitaryan? Seems he's been frozen out and is well and truly out of choice with Mourinho. Can you see him leaving and potentially being replaced in January?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

13 Dec 2017 12:13:30
Why not replace him Barkley? Or Ozil.

Agree0 4Disagree

13 Dec 2017 13:31:01
Eric I think Jose wanted Barkley when he was at Chelsea? I could be wrong, but that’s a good shout by you. Not sure he’s good enough but there is a very talented player in there.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - In answer to the original question, Mkhitaryan is available and Mino has put feelers out to three potential suiters but whether or not he discussed him with any clubs on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday when they were together I don't know as his focus is on another player right now. But he is available and we will have to see.}

13 Dec 2017 16:13:22
Hi Ed002 - is the other player Raiola is focused on Donnarumma at Milan? Saw something somewhere that he was looking into whether or not the contract signed in the Summer was forced into. Is there interest in Mikhitarian from any of the sides in Europe and would a January sale have any impact on the club looking to sign Sergej Milinković-Savic in January? Thanks for all the good information.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - (a) Unimportant. (b) See above. (c) I have no idea what your point is - why are you complicating matters?}

13 Dec 2017 16:48:40
Okay thanks Ed002. With the last one just wondered if the club looking to sign Milinković-Savic was dependent on players outgoing either by raising funds or to make room in the squad. Thanks for replying.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would try to avoid complicating anything with such things as x replaces y or when anything might happen.}

13 Dec 2017 17:14:46
Thanks Ed002.

Rightly so, he's been very poor since the start of the season.

There have been rumours of swap deal involving Mikhitaryan and Joao Mario.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Dec 2017 00:47:48
How many swap deals have you heard of outside of suggestions on this site (Ronnie) and football "rumours" pages of papers? Unlikely.

15 Dec 2017 06:33:06
I don't say will happen, its just sharing rumours.

Or this could be one among the few swap deals to happen.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2017 06:57:25
Deals including players is not that uncommon, and many great players have been Included in such deals. Cannavaro, Bonucci, Deco, Torres, Etoo, Zlatan, Milito, Thiago Silva, Cole, Gallas amongst others. for some of the transfers the deals are done seperatly, like the Torres-Cerci transfer. But then you have deals like Zlatan-Etoo, Cassano-Pazzini wich are more of a swap deal. I think Bonucci also was swapped for 2 other players some years ago. Its not common in England though.

Rob Beasley, who worked closly with Jose when publishing his book last year is saying Utd WILL sign Bale in the summer. His Injury record is horrendous mind.

Believable0 1Unbelievable

12 Dec 2017 10:06:48
NO NO NO! If Madrid want rid we should steer well clear unless the fee is significantly less than the 80m they are likely to demand.

12 Dec 2017 10:43:15
Wouldn't take him either, he's rejected us more than once and can go see out his injury plagued career elsewhere.

Couldnt agree more scholes.

Agree6 0Disagree

12 Dec 2017 16:46:43
If the deal was for under 40m and Bale had a pay per play style contract, or at least a decent proportion of his wage dependent on him being fit to play then maybe. But to be honest I would prefer it if we focused on players who are fit and able at least 90% of the time.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It won't be anything like that being offered to Manchester United.}

12 Dec 2017 17:28:58
I know Ed002, that's why I wouldn't want to sign him.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Not going to buy the shirt when if he arrives in the summer then?}

12 Dec 2017 17:55:32
i believe 002 is hinting this is going to idiot ed's latest 'marquee' signing. I definitely see this happening, unfortunately.

Get the glaziers'to sell off their shopping malls in florida and grow a pair, go balls out and raid spurs for their manager pochettino, alli, the korean son, that belgian defender whose surname is something like artiwald (apologies for shocking spelling) and trippier, then you'll have the d. n. a. of a manager who plays football the right way, a midfielder on the same wavelength as pogba, two honest, great defenders and a korean attacker who can fill about 4 different positions for team flexibility, failing that, just get pochettino, and like the saying goes;he'll turn average players into thoroughbreds, just as fergie did with a plethera of players, the d.n.a. should be ATTACK, not 'hold back'.

you can all wax lyrical about the arsenal game, but are arsenal really all that anymore? everything comes from the manager, and against the shining lights of world football, if you think united could beat them in free, attacking football, then fair enough, but the days of all out free flowing football at the theatre of dreams may become a thing of the past, the question is, are you happy to play percentage football?

I am not the biggest fan of Mourinho, but you seriously want a bottler to takeover from a guy who won 2 trophies last season.

Agree16 2Disagree

11 Dec 2017 13:43:47
3 trophies
We have lost points the first time in 40 games. at Old Trafford. Injuries have hampered us all season. Too jose it's a points game wether it's 3 or 1 as long as he does not lose. we lost against the best team in the premiership this year. Nobody moaned when we won league after league not so long ago.
Things will come good. let's take this one on the chin. we will be back .

Agree2 1Disagree

11 Dec 2017 19:31:59
Gentlemen, coming from a heritage of the emerald isle, and the long history of supporting the reds from most of my relatives; football in our neck of the woods is always a religion about the reds, so for those who say give jose another couple of transfer windows, i hope your right, and for me pochettino would be a good fit for the united philosophy of how the game should be played, i'm probably wrong, but, what other manager out there has that belief in playing attacking football?, i would say klippety klopp at the scouse sludge, even fergie said he'd be a success at liverpool and thought he could build an era of liverpool dominance, ask any supporter which team they'd prefer to watch (loyalties aside) and i think liverpool came top?

all i'm saying is jose IS a top manager, his record speaks for itself, i'm just asking the question, should the journey just be about the end result (as in the old days of 1-0 to the arsenal-boring, boring-even the fans had enough in the end) or is it about the journey itself, the highs, the lows, not taking the draw, but seeing how far the team can go?, only the fans can decide, you pay your money, you make your choice, maybe seeing the united teams over the last 20+ years has clouded my outlook, but i tell you what, i wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

Agree4 4Disagree

Poch is at the right club for him at the right time. He’d be crazy to leave just yet and needs to get Spurs winning some Cups at the very least.

10 Dec 2017 18:38:20
Well lads here we are. Completely and utterly out classed. They came to Old Trafford and made us look very average. The one thing I must say we have failed massively in recruitment.

I'll explain, we are currently playing with Valencia and young in the full back areas, Whilst they have performed admirably, they're not good enough. City have Walker and when fit mendy, a massive upgrade.
We move into the midfield and I must say they're light years ahead. Pogba is world class, but he wouldn't have made a huge difference there. Our options are Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Fellaini and Carrick. You could maybe bring young mctominay into that list. City brought gundogan off the bench for heavens sake.
Forwards wise we are okay, but the midfield and defence needs a huge improvement of quality.

There's a lot of areas that need addressed and unfortunately it takes a game like that where ( and I hate to say this ) we play someone just a step up in class.
We aren't a million miles of, but we aren't as close as we think I'm aftaid.
Caolan.

Pogba is world class but wouldn't have made a difference. Ok then.

10 Dec 2017 21:58:34
Sorry FZZ but what I mean is one player in pogba would not have turned that game around and we would have won 3-0. Look at the squad depth of both sides, if De Bruyne is missing for city they have gundogan, the two silva’s. who do we have? Fellaini, Herrera or mctominay?

Agree1 1Disagree

11 Dec 2017 02:28:50
To be fair, they were playing with a midfielder at left back, and he's done pretty well so far, apart from today's slip up.

Agree2 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 10:15:04
The day has arrived to show the world that this City team, lauded and eulogised by salivating journalist's are in fact fallible and vulnerable.

This is not a day for beautiful, champagne football. This is not a day for slow sideways and backwards passes. This is not a day to retreat or take a backwards step! On this day we fight! On this day we show character, we work hard, we contest every ball, every pass, every tackle, we play with fury and intensity and above all we believe! We believe in each other, we believe in the fans, we believe we can win. This is Old Trafford!

Hard work, intensity, organisation, concentration and belief will win us the game today. We need to test them like they haven't been tested before. Run the channels, get their defence turning, make tackles, put crosses and diagonal's into their box, contest the second balls, make them realise that this isn't a game of football but a game of character. It's about who wants to run further, about who wants to tackle harder, about who is prepared to sacrifice and not leave anything behind, it's about who wants it more! The time has arrived!

Sorry couldn't help myself. I've not been this excited for a game in ages!

Fascinating afternoon ahead!

He had his chance last summer. Personally I would question his desire. Don't want him at United now. Ferguson wouldn't bother with him again. Hope Jose doesn't too. It shows we are weak if we do sign him.

Agree1 2Disagree

09 Dec 2017 22:27:45
Dwelling on the past is a weakness. Comparing everyone to fergie is dwelling on the past. Believe in the current manager. I'm pretty sure he's in a better position than us to make a decision on who we sign.

Agree6 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 02:26:00
No he isn't redtash, that is heresy! People on here know much better. There are so many free top top top players available this summer. We need to sign them all and then Griezmann is the world class cherry on top. If they don't sign who we think they should then it is Woody or the Glazers who should go.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 03:47:14
Why is everyone against signing Griezmann. He's not a bad player is he?

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 04:39:02
Griezmaann is a very good player but going by what Ed002 has been telling us about the positions Mr Mourinho would like to strength, I don't see the point of spending that money on him, as this will hinder other purchases and he will be played out of the position with less effective.

The CM we are interested will cost a lot, means Pogba will be moved foword as I don't see either mid we're interested sitting on the bench.

Better we spend the money on other positions we are weak, rather than on Griez and play him out of the position.

Agree4 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 06:48:16
Aren't we better off moving pogba to play as the attacking midfielder to free him up a little from the defensive duties and bringing in another box to box midfielder if mourinho is not happy with Herrera?

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 08:22:45
I think that's what Mourinho intends to, has we have been told among of his priorities is a CM.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 08:25:55
I question his desire. He agreed to join United then cancelled it the last minute making the club look foolish. Saying he couldn't leave Atletico in the lurch. Move on from him.

Agree2 1Disagree

10 Dec 2017 09:57:32
Yes he's a good player. But I question the mental side of his game. I question his attitude, his desire. His constant snipes at the English weather shows he's not committed to coming here. He messed us around for months saying he was coming only to drop it to show loyalty to a club who are now trying to force him out anyway because they need the big bucks. And the fans turned on him.

Agree2 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 11:07:28
Agree with Shane and Mort. We went out of the way to bid and yet got declined but from AM but the player himself. Time and ride waits for no man. Am sure better options around and not like we don’t have the money to pay.
On another note we could sign Ashley Young’s cousin for the wings - Ashley Younger 🤣🤣🤣.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2017 14:11:54
Nonsense he is class player and we should do our all the sign him as he would take us to the next level. Yes he opted against joining us once but that shouldn’t stop us going in for him again. Need to put this ego aside.

Agree0 1Disagree

08 Dec 2017 20:28:41
So, first of all, I share my birthday with Jonny Evans so put that your pipe and smoke it. Secondly, I may have had a little wine tonight so forgive me if I am less coherent than Ronnie during a transfer window.

Sunday is a big game and I hope that Jose wakes up and has an epiphany but I fear it will not happen. I believe it is better to die fighting than running away and in football that is also true. Inspire the troops, give them hope and belief, rouse their spirits, fill their hearts with pride and desire. Let’s not turn up to stifle and try and nick a goal on the break. I don’t care if they are the best team, like Pierre the famous French fighter pilot, let’s go down in flames (google it) .

We are United, a team steeped in history and tradition, we live or die by our standard, there are times to stand up and be counted, Sunday is one of those times. We win, or we lose in a blaze of glory, to be a United fan there are no in betweens.

Time for more wine.

Believable7 4Unbelievable

09 Dec 2017 01:43:34
Jesse's performance at Arsenal will have given him food for thought. Maybe we can press high with a few players and cause some chaos amongst their back line. Worry is that Matic and Ander would have to play out of their skins.

The motivational piece is way more important than formation. Win your battles all over the pitch and you'll get a win.

Not a fan but have heard a rumour that not only do you fellas want danny rose, but that jose would also like deli alli as well, i know you'll all say, 'well who doesn't and the likes of Barcelona and madrid are sniffing around, and the fact that daniel levy still hasn't forgotten how you snatched a certain bulgarian from them, and yes, alli is playing in a very good side, but the whisper is he may feel he can't progress any further; and the stimulus of playing champions league regularly and mixing with the best players could raise his game even more, so fair enough if you say 'codswallop! ', but that's what someone told me, the thing is, if alli did indicate he wanted to join you, i reckon levy would ask something ridiculous like 200 million, out of pure spite! anyways must dash, got to take my tablets now for the hallucinations i've been having! oh yeah, stuff city!

Is it just me or does anyone think Alli is overrated. And I would have a preference for other LBs before rose too.

I think we will be signing Rose. As ed002 has stated on spurs page that he is leaving in january.

Agree0 1Disagree

i've heard they want to delay official signing of Rose until deadline day after our game with Tottenham.

Agree0 1Disagree

09 Dec 2017 11:19:57
Dele Alli has bags of potential, but he mustn't settle for mediocrity and from what I hear he is not. He has acquired help regarding his representation and for his endorsements too. So there is every possibility if MU, Barcelona or RM wanted him, he would want the move. Levy will be very hard to deal with, however I'm sure he'd rather part with Dele than Kane. If I was Levy I would cash-in on Dele and pay Kane a king's ransom in salary to make him Spurs' main man for the next 5-10 years. Then reinvest the Dele money smartly and continue to build around Kane.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 12:46:25
Danny Rose will be a great signing. I’d keep Shaw (at least until the summer) and let them battle it out for the LB/ LWB spot and equally do the same with Valencia / Young on the right. On that note hats off to Young for his incredible form.

If we need to raise funds, Blind and Darmian are obvious casualties in this for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 13:06:50
I think Darmian would raise a tidy amount, he's a decent fullback in Italian terms. Blind due to his utility is also another decent player.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2017 02:31:58
Deli Ali suddenly become rubbish, after a slowish start? He's a young lad. His form is going to be hit and miss at times. I'd have him here every day of the week. Makes things happen and takes chances. Mind you, José would soon knock that nonsense out of him :)

Ed002 didn't bring him up in the sharkopod so I'd ignore it unless something's changed in which case Ed002 will say in the next 1! All eyes on rose i think, would be nice to see him come in during Jan but got to expect it to be a summer move if it's going to be.

Duncan castles. Don't know if he's got any cred.

{Ed004's Note - I may have name dropped Sandro but I’ve no ‘inside information’. Just think he would be an excellent signing}

08 Dec 2017 16:34:03
Duncan Castles is very close to Jose. Recently wrote a book on him. He does a transfer podcast as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed004's Note - Really hoping there is some truth in it. Valencia/Young and Sandro/Shaw are good wide options for the rest of the season}

08 Dec 2017 19:30:01
Can't see it happening. Think we going to have to plod on regarding left backs until the summer

What everyone thoughts on Dortmund Raphael Guerriero? Would anyone like to see him join and what position you have him playing?

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Dec 2017 11:26:48
Wouldn't surprise me if both MU and Chelsea want either Sandro or Rose. There will of course be other targets too, however it seems the writing is on the wall for Danny Rose. He has planned his exit and Spurs want him gone. So if MU or another interested party can agree a deal with Levy, then he will leave Spurs. He hasn't played a great deal, but before his injury he was excellent and he has been decent from what I've seen recently when he's selected. If he signs then I think he will be a great addition, especially considering the style we play.
