Question for the Ed's.

Why are most contracts set at a max of 5 years?

Surely if you sign a player at 20, you would tie him to 10 year or more?
If they fail it will probably happen in the first 5 years anyways and you could cut your losses at any time?

{Ed002's Note - The rules limit contracts to 5 years plus the season you are in.}

Agree0 Disagree1

Thanks eds.
What is the rational to that rule then? If both parties want the deal?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know why that period was chosen but it does not concern anybody at all.}

On the topic of contracts ed002, has there been any progress in the clubs efforts to renew the contracts of david de gea and anthony martial?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything having changed at this time.}

31 Oct 2018 11:25:09
Are both de Gea and Martial looking to depart or renew?

{Ed002's Note - Martial would like to leave but because Manchester United over priced him in the summer and would not consider any sort of part exchange dals they will likely look to extend his contract. Some sort of convoluted loan to buy deal was proposed but that will likely not be in favour of the player. De Gea will be regretting not pushing harder for the Real Madrid move but you can expect that there will be an offer coming for him - the player will need to make a decision.}

Ok thanks Ed. Would be good if they stayed but can understand the reasons for going.

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to the one year extension but that could also leave them with miffed players who don't want to be there.}

Could i be greedy and ask which club will be putting in an offer for De Gea Ed002? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - PSG remain keen.}

31 Oct 2018 15:21:44
Thanks Ed002.

Are united watching any potential replacments for De Gea? Or are they confident on persuading him to stay.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the options might prove to be:
Joel Pereira (GK) - MU may opt to utilise Pereira as first choice
Jan Oblak (GK) - interest from the club will be there but the desire of the player to move may not be still
Aleksandr Maksimenko (GK) - Spartak would not be keen to sell but he has been watched on a number of occasions.
Danijel Subasic (GK) Monaco are going through changes and would like to hold on to Subasic but they know a couple of high profile sides, including MU have been looking at him.}

Thanks for the reply ed, hopefully De Gea does get persuaded to stay with us.
