Any truth to the reports united are in for bellerin? please say united aren't going to sell martial this summer just because of jose? eds? thanks 👍.

{Ed002's Note - They have mo approach to Arsenal but if he were available he might be an option - no more. Martial may well move.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed.

About Martial moving, is it the player who is considering his options going forward, or is the manager who is not happy with him.

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - He is a player the club think that they can improve on.}

16 Mar 2018 14:21:38
Ed002 who are we going to target to replace martial? Because the 500k guy we bought has performed like he is playing football for the first time in his life.

{Ed002's Note - There are options and the club will continue to look:
Gareth Bale (LW) - Will be offered to Manchester United but I think will be priced out of a move when his injuries are taken in to account - and he will likely have another option in England
Jose Arnaiz (LW) - viable option
Marco Asensio (LW) - unlikely because if he leaves he will likely be heading elsewhere and he is very, very pricey
Ivan Perisic (LW) - Manchester United could yet return although he has been struggling a little for form of late}

Thank you Ed. Much appriciated as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Selling martial would be absolute insanity. i know united are looking at justin kluivert too aren't they? but he's not better than martial and martial has massive potential. sounds like jose ruining another player. imagine martial under the likes of pochettino.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think about Kluivert too much and I am not aware of Mr Mourinho "ruining" any players - who do you have in mind.}

16 Mar 2018 14:36:58
Replacing martial with bale or perisic would be an absolute joke to be honest.

16 Mar 2018 14:54:12
Thanks ed002, have you watched or know what sort of a player arnaiz is?

Because out of that list only asensio is the only 1 I would like as I have no clue about arnaiz. Perisic is average, if mourinho wants to replace martial with him rather replace Mourinho first. Bale is injury prone and we have enough of those here.

{Ed002's Note - Perisic is a player who Mourinho has liked for a long time and he would be used to do a specific job - which Mourinho is very good at doing. You cannot simply buy what you see to be the best players and expect them to gel, you need to consider how players will fit the system the coach wants to play. He has shown interest in others in the past, such as Paulo Dybala, Keita Balde Diao and Lorenzo Insigne - and although Dybala is being courted by another Premier League side and Keita Balde only recently moved to Monaco, it might be a wildcard approach for Insigne, we will have to see. Franco Cervi might be another wildcard to consider. Anaiz is seen as a real talent by Barcelona but they are in danger of losing him if a place in the first team squad cannot be found - a right footed left winger.

If the club think they can imorove on martial they are bloody well right.

16 Mar 2018 14:58:37
to be fair replacing Martial with Bale or Perisic has no relevance .

As Martial is not a winger and the other two are.

I don't eant Martial to leave but he probably has to leave for his own career. He needs to play in the strikers position as that is where he is suited best.

By us targeting a Lewandowski type of player will make it harder for Martial to get games next year.

16 Mar 2018 15:31:21
Ed002 i don't mind if we replace martial with dybala or if the arnaiz kid is good then with him or anyone else mourinho thinks he needs to get his style going. The manager buying players that suit his style is important, but it doesn't seem logical to replace a player who is really talented will go on to be a really good player with someone who is nowhere near as good especially when you consider that martial is 22 while perisic is 30. That is going backwards to me as we are then trading what will be a long term loss to us for a short term success.

{Ed002's Note - Well the age is irrelevant if Perisic can do the job asked of him and Martial can't. In 2004/05 he added Thiago and Jarosik to do specific jobs and Chelsea won the league. In 2014 he added Filipe Luis and resigned Drigba and Matic to do particular jobs and won the league again. He knows exactly what he is doing.}

16 Mar 2018 15:50:48
Ed002 i don't for a moment doubt he knows what he is doing. But how did signing drogba eventually work out or not replacing ivanovic for that matter? He won the league all right but got sacked the next season by having the worst title defense in epl completely blowing moyes's heroics with us out of the water. It works out short terms comes back to bite you in long term.

{Ed002's Note - It worked out fine with Drogba, they won the league. Mourinho was not Chelsea manager when Ivanovic (who was replaced) left, Hiddink was. So I am not really sure what point you are trying to make.}

16 Mar 2018 23:18:55
Sanchez (albeit not on form), Rashford and Lukaku are all better than Martial. Never quite seen the love in with him?

16 Mar 2018 20:44:06
Thanks Ed002, seem to remember you’re a Chelsea fan so really know your stuff regarding Mourinho.

16 Mar 2018 23:57:28
Lol ed002. More perspective. of course Jose knows what he's doing.

17 Mar 2018 08:33:15
You say that Asensio is more likely to end up elsewhere. Could you perhaps say where he'd be more likely to end up? :) Really hope it's not Manchester City at least!

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

17 Mar 2018 13:33:35
Man city chasing dybala and chelsea chasing asensio.

17 Mar 2018 14:21:46
In all the red ink there above the most telling line from ed002 is 'jose knows what he is doing'
All our posters here that know better should perhaps list their managerial success against those of jose and see who has the better success rate.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion but i reckon jose knows more than any of us on here.
