002, or any of the ed's who may know, bit of a lesser known player, but is there any interest from anywhere in the lad Omar Abdulrahman of Al Ain in UAE? Fella seems to be causing a bit of a stir.

{Ed002's Note - Not recently. Abdulrahman has been courted by Sporting Lisbon and Manchester City, spending time with both during the summer of 2013, Ajax, Lyon and Hamburg (and probably others) also expressed interest in the player last summer.}

Ed004 I have seen you have mentioned Vietto as an alternative for the striking position. Do you know if we had hold any interest? I have seen him linked with everyone else but us in the media.

{Ed004's Note - I think he has been linked with us in papers but haven't heard Ed002 talking about him so don't think so}

With us obviously looking to fill a CB position in the summer and Hummels being the favourite, is there any interest in Laporte? I know there was a bit of speculation before the January window. I just assumed it was all paper talk.

{Ed004's Note - There is interest but he will be very expensive}

Hey eds/everybody,
Ed002 thanks as always for the update.hopefully clyne will come in at RB, seems hummels could be very likely and with you saying united want 2 cbs do you think they are looking for a younger cb like kongolo? wouldn't say no to de jong but would rather another cm.is danny ings more likely to end up at liverpool do you think?thanks Ed002

{Ed002's Note - I would not be surprised if a second CB arrived at all. Kongolo has been looked at. I am not aware of any MU interest in De Jong. Liverpool, Aston Villa, Leicester, Manchester City, Real Sociedad and Newcastle all have shown an interest in Danny Ings. Surprisingly, rumours of Manchester United and Manchester City interest in Danny Ings are true as well. My expectation that he will join Liverpool in the summer is wobbling a bit right now.}

Morning eds!

Just wondering if we have any interest in the young Austrian lad, Valentino Lazaro? Can play a number of postions, including Right back. RB Salzburg have a number of quality young players that could potentially have great careers IMO.
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - None.}

Ed with us looking increasingly likely to nail a Champions League spot is there any new developments with potential incomings or is your update from a few weeks back the most recent info you are aware of?

{Ed002's Note - Much of this will change by the summer and there are major dependencies on (a) players leaving (b) if there is a change of manager, and (c) Champions League qualification. However, there is known to be (or have recently been) some level of interest in the following players:

GK: If De Gea goes perhaps Krul or Handanovic will be added. Romero was looked at but as an alternative to Valdes, so unlikely.

RB: Coleman would be expensive and remains "not for sale". Perhaps Clyne would be a better option. Alves is negotiating with PSG. Danilo of Porto has been looked at but is heading elsewhere. Darmain was looked at but there is no interest right now.

CB: It seems likely that Manchester United are looking for two centre backs. Mats Hummels remains the primary target, if available. The summer is certainly realistic, particularly given the Champions League situation and Dortmund are looking at a possible replacement. Godin may well alo be a serious target for the summer. Garay could certainly be an option for the summer - he will be leaving Zenit. Alternatively, Howedes if available but I doubt a first choice. Virgil van Dijk has been looked at but there is interest from elsewhere and I cannot see him sitting on the bench. Miranda - only makes sense at a much, much lower fee. Terence Kongolo remains of interest to both Manchester clubs and Southampton. Tyrone Mings has been looked at but remains one for the future and with Rojo and Shaw at the club seems an unlkikely choice. Otamendi was of interest to Barcelona, Zenit, Chelsea, Napoli, Manchester City and CSKA before a move to Valencia in January 2014 and a subsequent loan to Atlético Mineiro. As Otamendi has only effectively been playing in Spain since August 2014 a move in January was unlikely - but he was of interest. There has been interest in Dragovic but if he forces a move from Dinamo Kiev I suspect he will end up elsewhere. Marquinhos won't happen as he has signed a new contract.

DM: Vidal is due to be sold in the summer and I suspect there is still interest. Nainggolan might, if his complex ownership can be completely resolved, be an option (and the ownership issues are far clearer than they were). Strootman has been injured for a while and whilst he remains a target there may be too much of a risk with his injury issues to make a move for him. Carvalho remains a player that both Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in and his situation remains the same. He is for sale, but the asking price would need to come down to make any move possible. De Jong may be considered as an alternative.

M: Gundogan can almost certainly removed from the list of players moving to Manchester United this year but the club has shown interest. Pogba will be outrageously expensive and there is strong interest from elsewhere. Pjanic was a Moyes target and I suspect interest has gone. Transfer fee and wages are very high. Khedira has been of interest but a move seems unlikely. Matuidi is a player the club has considered but he has no interest in leaving PSG. Interest in Viktor Fischer will have gone completely.

W/AM: Whilst Depay is not seen to be ready for the EPL at this time, by someone very respected within the game, I suspect Manchester United will be able to complete the signing in the summer. Douglas Costa has been of sustained interest to Manchester United but I suspect he is heading elsewhere. A tentative enquiry was made Wolfsburg's Kevin de Bruyne but it I think it very unlikely that a move will be possible this summer. Pedro will leave Barcelona this summer as they start raising funds for rebuilding from January 2016 - it is not out of the question that the club could rekindle previous interest, but I think a move is unlikely. The club has now been approached about Arda Turan and there may be interest.}

FW: Santos' Gabriel Barbosa continues to be of interest to Chelsea, Fiorentina and Manchester United. However, much is expected of him and there is an agreement between Santos and Barcelona that will be exercised in 2016 if he does not move beforehand - if he does I don't think it will be to Manchester. Do not be surprised by a bid for Benzema. Cavani is being offered around the clubs who have previously shown an interest. Surprisingly, rumours of Manchester United and Manchester City interest in Danny Ings are true. Kenedy remains of interest and if a deal can be done he would likely go on loan. Interest in Bakkali has gone completely. Mandzukic will be sold this summer as Atletico look to fund a bid for Cavani. Manchester City see Mandzukic as a replacement for Dzeko and it is a solution that suits all. "Apparently" (an agent's "apparently"), Manchester United and Arsenal remain interested. Maybe not.}

Ed002 you said earlier in the month that Hummels remains the primary target for the CB postion if available but I've read a few pieces from who I would call decent journalists and they claim it is in fact Otamendi who is the preferred candidate at the moment.

Any idea if that's true?

{Ed002's Note - Whatever you want.}

Graham hunter saying the city players belive a successfull bid for ronaldo is on the cards,

Any of the eds have any info regarding interest in ronaldo and if anyone has made any approch to madrid in regards to a possible transfer

{Ed001's Note - either someone is on a wind up or they are looking to get the betting market going. There are issues there but nothing is done, Madrid are looking to sell to raise transfer funds but there is not even close to a done deal there.}

Nedved has been quoted by tabloids saying that Juve received a bid for Pogba. Could you clarify what club bid for him? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - PSG.}

Good morning. Now I know you don't take much notice of tabloids but this mornings rumours seem particularly strange. Firstly, Di Maria wants out as he doesn't want to 'prove himself' under LVG. Secondly, De Gea is refusing to sign a new contract and his value is going down as he only has 18 months to go until he can leave on a 'free'. Any views Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Manchester United looking to sell Di Maria at this time nor of Jorge Mendes looking for interest from any other club. I would ignore anything about the value of De Gea or "running down his contract". I have explained that there is interest in him and he might leave - hence the club enquiring about the availability of other goalkeepers. I expect he will want to see what options he has and then make a decision.}

Not really united related but I can't stop laughing after reading this
"Manchester City are hopeful of luring Jack Wilshere to the Etihad Stadium and help the Arsenal midfielder rejuvenate his career."
Like they did with Roswell, Sinclair.

Not untied related but I would like to say a very big kudos to Ed002. The daily tabloids are now printing that Atletico Madrid are targeting Cavani this summer a story which Ed002 told us about last month!

I don't know who you are or how you get your information bro but I bow to your knowledge Ed002!

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. Post of the day.}

Ed with you saying that PSG may be willing to sacrifice players in order to generate funds such as Marquinos, Matuidi, Cavani etc. Would Lucas Moura be avaialble at the right price?

{Ed002's Note - Probably, because at the "right price" most players can be available, but MU have no interest in any case.}

Hey Ed002, I know you said we have interest but just wondering where do you think ings might end up?is he still most likely to end up at liverpool?Is there anything in the otamendi and laporte rumours from yesterday?thanks as always

{Ed002's Note - My expectation was that Ings would move to Liverpool. I have no idea about any "rumours", I don't read Twitter or any newspapers that would contain such things.}

Good Morning Ed002

A quick question for you if i may I was wondering whether the targets you have let us know about for the summer window are being targeted by the club or LvG i know this is probably a silly question but again i was wondering if all our targets could potentially change if LvG is replaced in the summer

Thanks in advance

{Ed002's Note - To some extent it will be a mixture. As I said at the start of the post, there will always be dependencies and I cited (a) players leaving (b) if there is a change of manager, and (c) Champions League qualification.}

Hi Eds, is there any interest in Lazio's Felipe Anderson? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid have approached Lazio about taking Filipe Anderson as a replacement for Arda Turan. Manchester City have a declared interest whilst many clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have had him watched recently.}

Hi Edds if your about could you let us know is there any truth to united wanting to sign roberto firmino after his agent was spotted next to uniteds scouts cheers

{Ed002's Note - Firmino will very likely move from Hoffenheim in the summer with Barcelona (who would delay a move until January) Arsenal, Dortmund, Zenit and Schalke probably all interested. Manchester United have looked at him again. Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Shakhtar and Inter have dropped their previous interest. I am aware that Everton, Dynamo Kiev and Liverpool looked at Firmino last season but did not declare any interest with his agent. Roberto Firmino was previously subject of a rejected bid from Southampton.}

Just wondering if we have/are showing any interest in Daryll Janmaat of Newcastle ED?

He was a favourite of LVG at the World Cup and has gave a decent account for himself at the Toon.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ed002 if you are around, with the likelihood of de gea leaving this summer, do you think its possible united will try use it as leverage in an attempt to sign bale?the thought of losing mata and de gea this summer is sickening. i'm not really looking forward to this summer. thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I would not be certain that both, or indeed either, will leave. Valencia have said they would want Mata back if he became available, but others may well also be interested. Also, I would not necessarily tie any transfer of Bale and De Gea together. The price Real Madrid are looking to achieve for Bale is extremely high and I am by no means sure there is any interest in him from Manchester United at this time. Even though it is common for clubs to discuss players as part of transfer deals, it fails to materialise in many cases. If for no other reason than perhaps a club does not want the other player, or perhaps the player is not keen. Long gone are the days where a player would be sold to a club without being involved in agreeing the move. So it is all possible but we will need to wait to see what happens.}
