So does anyone believe the rumour that Zlatan will leave at the end of the season?

Believable3 6Unbelievable

27 Feb 2017 17:02:13
He staying lol.

Agree4 2Disagree

27 Feb 2017 20:56:17
I'm not saying I believe it, but think it is properly narcissistic to want to tease the fans / press.

I guess he will do 1 or 2 more seasons.

Agree1 1Disagree

27 Feb 2017 21:14:10
It's smart business by his agent, probably get a pay rise aswell from it, tbh he deserves it.

Agree5 1Disagree

27 Feb 2017 21:22:00
If we get cl otherwise i'm not sure.

Agree2 2Disagree

27 Feb 2017 23:36:22
Good point on the pay rise but isn't it a simple activation of a 2nd year of pre agreed terms?

Perhaps he is trying to leverage a 3rd year?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Feb 2017 09:29:26
Not sure on his contract structure if it a pre-agreement with either a club option or a player option tbh

Maybe one of the Eds can shed some light on it.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is on a one year contract with the option of a second year if both he and the club agree. It is very simple.}

Hi Eds

Just wondering regarding the recent paper talk regarding Neymar to United, is it something that could happen this summer, do you think Neymar would be willing to leave Barcelona if say United meet his buy out clause?

Also is Griezmann still a player that interests Mourinho and United?

Believable1 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - (a) No, I would not expect Neymar to be joining Manchester United in the Summer. (b) Neymar is in a complex situation at present and I would not expect him to want to leave Barcelona this summer. (c) Neymar does not have a "buy out" clause. (d) I have explained about Griezmann on plenty of occasions and Mourinho wanted Griezmann at Chelsea and continued to want him at Manchester United. He will however be aware of why Chelsea's interest eased off and will be thinking about that - and with the move to a new stadium, that will also be a consideration.}

27 Feb 2017 12:21:48
Thanks Eds002

My apologies didn't use the correct terminology, I meant a release clause, that wasn't clear on my part

Thanks for the information, much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The "release clause" is of no direct relevance to Manchester United Shane.}

27 Feb 2017 12:42:30
Thanks Eds002, is it possible the release clause then is regarding Real Madrid

Also wondering would you possibly be doing another United sharkpod towards the summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - All players in Spain have "release clauses" as it is required by their local rules. There will be further Sharkopods.}

27 Feb 2017 13:01:16
Thanks Ed, have a nice day.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It has just started raining.}

You must be in Manchester then lol.

27 Feb 2017 13:13:40
Ed002 there is really only one of you in this world. I was laughing so hard as I read your response. I'd think you are "The Special One"! 😂😂😂😂.

I know Southampton had a nice rest.
And I'm incredibly happy we won it.
But we looked tired and laboured and Mkhi was injured too.
We have too many matches and it's showing. Zlatan said "He nearly died in the last minutes" and it was showing.

It's impossible for us to get a top 4, a Europe league cup and a FA Cup.
We cannot go and keep playing games with 14-15 players all the time.
Jose needs to prioritise top 4 above all.

I want him to use Bastian, Rooney, Fosu Mensah, Shaw more than he is.
It's not like they are as terrible as Morgan and Depay were.
Rooney can still lead the line, Bastian doesn't look out of sorts. Shaw's been untested. And Fosu doesn't even get a substitute appearance.

I want us to be all guns blazing for the Bournemouth game, play a defensive rotated side away to Russia, play the best XI against Chelsea and then at home play our best XI against Rostov, depending on our previous result.

Real Madrid are struggling with so many games, and we don't have a squad close to theirs in terms of quality. We cannot go so many games with same XI.
We can't play Herrera Pogba every game. Carrick can't start 3 times a week. And Bastian is a quality backup.

I'm surprised Jose doesn't rate Blind as he steps up his game, and learns his new positions very quickly.
Not to sound negative, but we cannot go playing like this. We'll injure a lot more players.

Believable2 4Unbelievable

27 Feb 2017 02:02:46
I have to disagree, the team won in a difficult game where Southampton played their game plan to perfection. I doubt they will play a better 90 mins all season.

I think Zlatan was underlining how much effort it took for him to win us this game, and also giving Southampton the respect they deserve.

No one was injured today, no doubt they all put a decent amount of effort in, but nothing like what Southampton had to put into this game, and they didn't even come out with the win! Our strongest 11 should play as many games as they can, Jose doesn't play Klopp football, there is no high press, and I think you will find many of our players ran a lot less far than their Southampton counterparts.

I see where your coming from but I just don't agree.

Agree6 5Disagree

27 Feb 2017 12:04:18
Agree with you both to a point.

I expect now we are coming to the business end of the season you will see rotation and to be fair Rooney and Carrick have just been out injured.

Sunday Mirror report we are in for Donnaruma.

Express report De Gea pushing to go to Real and is concerned he will miss his chance if Courtois goes.

Probably elements of truth in both.

Donnaruma would be a sound replacement.

Believable1 1Unbelievable

26 Feb 2017 14:23:35
I don't think he will go. he's had ample opportunity before and not done so. Spanish or not I think he will be with us after the Summer.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 Feb 2017 20:03:14
If R. Madrid come knocking DeGea will go, no doubt about it.
Donnaruma will be the next big thing IMO, he has already played 50+ games of top level football and at such a young age still, he could be with us for 15years.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2017 22:42:57
Only way De Gea leaves United if he puts in a transfer request in, United will obviously fight tooth and nail to keep him here, personally why do you want leave, your likely going to be United no1 until your retire unlike Real Madrid where they will either toss you out when you start declining or the next De Gea comes along.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2017 23:40:10
@Gordon when he had the chance to go he took it and a fax machine kept him at Utd.

The way the article is pitched is if Courtois signs he won't get the chance to go back to Spain playing at the elite level as ter Stegan and Courtois as youngish. And that is why he's going to push for the move.

I agree Donnaruma would be a good choice to come in but don't see it happening.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Feb 2017 10:09:07
If De Gea goes will need to go all out on Donnamruma, don't think I seen as a talented kid for a goalkeeper in my life, even the likes of Buffon, Casillas and De Gea who were pretty good at a young age didn't have his quality at the ages of 17/ 18.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2017 16:31:52
evra has stated a few times that one person wasn't so keen for him to return to united, any idea who is responsible?

Bernardo silva of Monaco is there any interest and if so is it seen as an alternative to griezman?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

25 Feb 2017 18:09:59
No idea on Evra but Ed002 has said there is interest from Man Utd in Silva.

With Silva being a left footed attacking midfielder who plays from the right, I don't see it happening unless Mata or others are sold.

Agree0 0Disagree

Hi Guy,

What is the injury with miki and carick? How long does it looks like they will be out for?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

23 Feb 2017 12:43:28
It's just guess work, but a thigh is usually 4-6 weeks, a calf could be 2-3. It's impossible to say though without knowing the full extent of the injury.

Either way, we are well covered.

Thank you Wazza.

Hi eds with jose latest comments regarding our captain do you have any insight into him leaving for China before the end of Feb?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - No.}

21 Feb 2017 21:36:51
I doubt Rooney knows where China is. Fortune cookie always wrong?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 23:02:56
Papers are going nuts, Rooney offered 35 mil a year, he will quit if not picked at the weekend . bit extreme moving your family to China for 3 year because you don't get picked for a game.
It was the same in January before the English transfer window shut, but it sells .
Rooney twitted today great to be back with the boys training . Sounds like he is on the move.

Agree1 1Disagree

21 Feb 2017 23:44:51
to be fair rooney hasn't made any significant movements for some time now.

Agree3 1Disagree

22 Feb 2017 05:50:08
Can't see him leaving mid season and to suggest he will go to China if he is not picked at the weekend sounds like nonsense to me.
He doesn't need the money and he will have more attractive footballing options in the summer. They may well not have the same financial offer as China but you would think that is not his primary concern at this stage of his life.
Staying at United in a bit part role may not be attractive to him but he might just want to see it his contact and move on a free after kicking his heels in the bench for a year or so.
Does he still think he can get into tyne England squad for the world cup? Will be achieve that sitting on the bench at United.
He is at a crossroads and will have decisions to make but I don't think he will make any major decision before the summer and Jose says he won't be forced or the door but he won't be in the team if he has his first choice 16 available to him that is clear.

Agree3 1Disagree

22 Feb 2017 10:29:09
There's no way Rooney spends the rest of his contract sat on the bench, all he's wanted to do is play football.

The opportunity to re-join Everton has probably passed him by now that Koeman is in charge so his options are really limited.

His team around him probably want him to move to the states as he will continue to earn a bucket load there and will be one of the best players in the league. China is surely too much of a barrier for him.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 13:32:22
Lazy journalism for me.

If he goes anywhere I'd imagine the US. I think he's got some property out there.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Feb 2017 15:46:52
Il tell you something, I could care less for the rubbish papers write at times but hats off too Wayne Rooney, he's handled not being a key figure this year with the upmost professionalism something I honestly didn't think he was capable of, I thought the toys would of been thrown out the pram but couldn't be more opposite. well done wazza and good luck for whatever you're career future holds.

Agree10 1Disagree

23 Feb 2017 11:16:01
Straw that breaks the elephants back missing Sunday.

I think he'll go and i wouldn't blame him. It's time, but he won't like China. He won't move the family over either imo, so he will be lonely as hell. Back by the Summer playing for Everton or Tranmere.

Agree0 2Disagree

23 Feb 2017 16:23:15
He has to make the bench now with miki and Carrick out.

Agree0 2Disagree

23 Feb 2017 17:01:01
Jose has said he still hasn't started full training.

Agree0 2Disagree

23 Feb 2017 23:26:34
I heard the Chinese have offered him a free bottle of fanta when he buys a starter and a main. so my guess is he will be off to china.

Agree2 1Disagree

28 Feb 2017 14:02:44
I can see why you guys can't see Rooney in China since he's such a lad, but "he doesn't need the money" might underestimate the kind of money we're talking about. Even rich men could still aspire to be wealthy. and yes, there's a big difference between being rich and being wealthy.

First time poster but followed the site for a long time. Best site around for me, thanks to all the eds who make it possible. Phenomenal job.

Have just seen something on the BBC gossip that Utd have renewed interest in Kroos. Was wondering if anybody could shed some light on this? Thanks in advance.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - It was expected that Kroos would leave last summer even though his initial beef was with Benitez. Howver, Zidane persuaded him to stay regardless of the interest of Manchester City. As I explained in the Sharkopod Manchester United are still considering Kroos but nothing was going to happen in January. Real Madrid, at least the manager, would like to keep him and not sell but there remains a chance that the club may offer him elsewhere to try and facilitate a deal for a striker. The interest of the three other clubs that Hebel approached in the summer will have moved on I would think.}

20 Feb 2017 11:49:01
I know it isn't a United question but wondering is the striker Paulo Dybala of Juventus?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

20 Feb 2017 11:55:53
Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

20 Feb 2017 12:49:16
I was considering posting the same thing purely because I'd love to see Kroos at United, but guessed it's probably red top fodder.

He'd be an ideal replacement for Carrick if we got him.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Feb 2017 13:57:23
I don't think we could do any better than Kroos. Verratti maybe but that's never going to happen. Kroos, Pogba, Herrera is a very good midfield 3.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Feb 2017 12:40:39
Thanks for the quick reply Ed002. Much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 08:38:18
Is there any particular reason why Verratti is unlikely to transfer to us? I've seen it a few times in comments, and I don't understand where its come from.

I don't necessarily think he will, but everyone appears to be fairly optimistic about transfers, until his name is mentioned.

If the reason is simply 'Champions League' etc then fair enough but I didn't know if he disliked Enlgand/ our club/ Mourinho/ specific players. Or is he just either a massive PSG fan or Real/ Bca/ other bound?

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 09:28:42
He has said on multiple occasions that the only club he would leave PSG for is Barcelona. He has said he has no interest in playing in the EPL.
Put those two points of view together then I think its pretty clear the chances of us signing him are almost non exsistant.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 10:21:56
If Verratti comes to the Premier League it be Chelsea, Italian connections and living in London

Plus it's pretty well known Italian players (apart from Zola) don't do well in the Premier League as they are not used to the speed of the league which is a big X for me

Personally he end up at Madrid sometime in the future, Zidane a big fan of his and his style be more suited to a style of Real Madrid

The Carrick position is a interesting one, Ander Herrara could be a potential replacement if is willing to commit to the position, do we buy a carbon copy version of him or do we decide we need someone a bit more of a bite in a Defensive Midfielder

I interested to see if someone like Modric would be available which could be a short term replacement in a Carrick mould, I think it be hard to get Kroos, Verratti or Weigl. Or do we get someone like William Carvalho or the Kessie guy from Atlanta to play more of a Defensive role.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - THere have been plenty of Italian players who have done well in the Premier League - Ravinelli, Di Matteo, Vialli, Di Canio, Carbone ....}

21 Feb 2017 11:02:52
so your saying he might not come to UTD then? :-)

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 11:54:25
I really rate Herrera but he is not a replacement for Carrick.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2017 12:07:25
Sorry ed002 maybe I was a bit harsh on Italian players but part of me feel like some of those where just a PR stunt to get fans into the ground back in the 90s, tbh though they did pretty well at their respected clubs but I don't think they were world beaters, they were just made to look good because they were at bad teams, tbh I probably being very critical on them.

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Clubs don't spend millions buying players as a "stunt" to get a few more fans to go to matches.}

21 Feb 2017 14:19:10
Did he not nearly sign for us in the Moyes era?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Feb 2017 06:19:03
Kroos / veratti/ thiago are for me the standout playmakers in the game today.
All 3 are at top clubs and will be in no rush to leave where they are. I would imagine none of the 3 will be forced out the door.
Veratti has said he does not fancy playing in epl and would prefer to go stay go home or head for Spain.
Thiago suffers quite a bit with injuries and bayern don't sell easily.
Kroos seems to be happier under Zidane.
I can see Jose signing a raibot / fabhino/ matic type midfielder high energy and more destructive than creative.
Personally and in an ideal world I would like to see veratti or Kroos but I just don't see that happening I hope I'm wrong.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Feb 2017 20:30:01
Anything on Rooney to China before the end of their window?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

19 Feb 2017 23:05:46
Not likely at any time. He is already very rich and he loves it where he is even if there are too many footballers coming to Alderley Edge and knocking down lovely houses and building monstrous mansions in their place.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Feb 2017 10:31:08
Just paper talk, Rooney won't leave United at least until this summer and I personally reckon he will see his contract out then make a decision to carry on playing at United or somewhere else, he could also retire (very unlikely)

Agree0 1Disagree

18 Feb 2017 18:42:23
Hi guys,
There's been talk (although admittedly limited), about sergio aguero possibly moving to the red side of Manchester in the summer.
Is there any truth to the rumours and would you lot like to see him in a Utd shirt or do we not want City's cast offs?
Personally rate him highly as a player but not sure whether it would be wiser to go for a younger player with similar skill in Antoine Greizmann?

Believable0 5Unbelievable

18 Feb 2017 19:38:39
Paper doesn't refuse ink. Man utd stories sell papers get clicks etc. Don't let it bother you is my advice.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Feb 2017 09:11:59
Honest truth City would sell him to any other club first before United, 0% chance of happening, you just don't sell quality players to your rivals.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Feb 2017 11:16:38
I'd - gladly - eat my hate if that happened but just can't see City selling to us. Why would they?

If we were to pinch a star from a rival I'd guess Sanchez to be the most achievable. Just got a hunch about it.

Agree0 1Disagree

19 Feb 2017 20:21:58
I think Alexis is achievable but gut feeling they going to buy him to replace Dybala who going to go to Madrid in the summer

Our superstar signing will be Griezmann or no-one, think it be more about addressing certain positions ie LB, RB and buying some depth.
