I was wondering how easy some of our supporters think it is to complete a transfer? I am no expert and presume that those on frees are simple, you just agree terms with the player and that's it. I can also presume that those that hand in a request are a bit easier, in that you approach the club for permission to talk to the player and if they want to sell they grant it and you agree terms with both the player and selling club. It has to be so hard with a club who don't want to sell, you can approach and make an offer, they can accept or decline your offer, you then have to speak to the player and his bloody agent and agree terms. Most players we are after I think have not handed in requests to leave, so it becomes a long bargaining session to see if you can meet the selling clubs valuation and also agree terms with a player? I think I am right Ed 002 will probably tell me I am mad

{Ed002's Note - it is not like that for those o. Frees.

17 Jul 2019 18:42:23
Thanks, how hard is it for those out of contract and on a "free"? I only ask as some people on here are demanding to know why and when we are signing players without knowing what it actually takes.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Stuff like this needs to happen and plenty of payments need to be made.
(a) Paperwork including obtaining International Clearance and Work Permits if necessary.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the Premier League. This eill be based on the assigned value of the transfer fee.
(c) Tax due on the assigned value of the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents (as an example, Liverpool spent £44M plus VAT on agent fees (nearly double the next highest) last season alone).
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Solidarity and Training Contributions (this can be significant payments paid based on the assigned transfer fee to clubs you may never of heard of).
(n) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (usually waived).}

Are there any decent football documentaries showing behind the scenes of a transfer. Geeky I know but I would find it fascinating to watch.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Quite frankly, of course not.}

17 Jul 2019 19:43:49
Thanks Ed002, now some of our supporters may see the reason why we have just not signed a player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - To be fair they are far from the brightest.}

17 Jul 2019 20:31:11
And some people think you are a journalist 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Many say I am a simple singer songwriter that came out of Laurel Canyon in the early 70s. Others say, I played for Arsenal, Everton and Millwall before a successful career in the Medical Law (specialising in left knees). Some even say it was my fadget design that was used in the patent for tentafere that led to air traffic control over Lake Havasu City being lost for 40 minutes on Christmas Eve 2014. Many finally figured out I am a tubby kid from Bolton.}

17 Jul 2019 21:43:11
Ed002, if they read this they might shut up about asking about player x and y?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I think Player Y will sign Friday.}

17 Jul 2019 21:51:32
You‘re asking for trouble there Ed 😂

Thanks a lot for the insight.

17 Jul 2019 21:56:24
oh, I had player Y as Bale, you sure it's not X?

I have now worked out the identity of Ed 002 and the truth is stranger than fiction. We are so so lucky. Thanks Ed.

If we going to sign Maguire is best to do it as soon as possible and have him on the squead this week so the club can focus on the next signing ( hopefully a midfielder) then a right winger. we need to speed up the process, this new players need to gel with the rest of the squad specially players coming from other leagues.

I'm sure everybody involved with the transfer is aware of that. These things take time. It's not like buying a packet of fags.

We should take however long is needed to get the best deal for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 15:33:08
still 3 weeks to go. we want the right deals nothing needs to be rushed.

we could have the perfect window if reports are to be true

wan bissaka
and dave signing a new deal

and possibly longstaff

if come the end of the window with all of the above we would have improved the team massively

im still expecting some players to go.

im not sure we will go for a RW this window and i don't think we would replace lukaku

and if pogba goes we need another cm.

Agree3 3Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:43:44
Must admit, I was a bit surprised to see him come on for Leicester in their latest friendly. I know Leicester can't be expected to put everything on hold just for our benefit, but maybe it's not quite as close as we thought.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jul 2019 17:51:45
Wazza's not bought a pack of ciggies for awhile. You now need photo i'd with proof of age, a doctors note, and to sign 67 page disclaimer in triplicate.

Sky just reporting we are looking at another centre back if Maguire they didn’t say who it was though.

Reports saying that Neymar has offered himself to Juve, Man Utd, Bayern and Real Madrid.
I would love it if there were no takers!

Seems like a negotiation tool to push the Barcelona sale on in my opinion, as good a player he is we don't need another diva in the changing room Lingard and Pogba are more enough in itself! and who's to say we don't break the bank on him for him to repeat the same he's done with PSG, let's get Maguire, Bruno and Milinkovic-Savic over the line!

17 Jul 2019 14:15:29
Maguire, Bruno and Savic sounds right to me!

I agree Harry.

By “I’d love it if there were no takers” I mean no one shows any interest us included.

He is the last player I would want at United.

2 words I have to say to Near

1 begins with 'F' the other is 'off'

Poison. wouldn't take the Shyster on a free.

Someone needs to bring him down a peg or 2.

Do other Ballon D'Or winners act like this.

Ronaldo, Messi, would they act in this manner.

The guy is simply a man child.

Couldn’t agree more Ken.

17 Jul 2019 17:54:30
I don't even think he's really that talented. Everytime I watch one if his games he's too busy rolling around. When did you last see him actually use his talent. Also both messi and Ronaldo can be petulant as well. Just neymar goes the next level.

Neymar isn't suited to the Premier league, best he goes back to Spain.

Is Rio coming back?

Either that or Rojo will become the new Michael Carrick and reinvent himself as a calm, composed defensive MF.

From what I saw today, he is indeed on the verge of becoming the best CM in the Premier league.

Hi Ed's,
There has been reports today that Man United will offer Phil Jones as part of the Maguire deal.

Any truth in this?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I would rather doubt it as they are already working on a replacemen - although it is provingh difficult.}

17 Jul 2019 13:59:56
Can you offer any insight as to what is holding up the deal ed? Is it Leicester trying to find a replacement or are we still apart on a fee?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Nothing is holding it up - the clubs need to agree terms.}

16 Jul 2019 13:35:14
Hello Ed002,
Would there be a Man Utd sharkapod this week?
(If time permits)

OK Ed. Hope you have a pleasant journey.

{Ed002's Note - Numerous journeys right now - thanks.}

Ed 002 : with the danger of really upsetting the Ed, could I ask if Ed002 works as a European football journalist? Waiting in trepidation for the bullets.

{Ed002's Note - No I am a gentleman adventurer and rodeo clown.}

17 Jul 2019 07:55:37
Ed002, you forgot oracle/ time traveller. And I'm guessing the rodeo clown is for crowd control at one of Ed003's parties?

"One point Twenty one gigawatts! " - this is what Ed002 means when he struggles with time.

Almost Wallace, if you remove the words "adventurer" and "rodeo". The "Gentleman" part is a judgment call.

16 Jul 2019 00:02:18
BBC reporting that David De Gea has agreed a new long term contract at the club and it looks as though he'll sign it when he returns from pre season. Wondering if the Ed's have heard anything on it? Cheers.

If it's true, it's great news.
The back 5 will be sorted.

Apparently old slab has left Leicester's training camp to go for a medical?

Dont know how reliable Duncan castles is, but thought I'd share.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 20:50:21
We need a leader and someone who’s a bit tough at the back. He’ll fit in well.

Agree5 5Disagree

15 Jul 2019 21:52:06
Duncan Castles also is kind enough to say top clubs in Europe are laughing at us for paying this kind of money for Maguire, let them laugh.

Agree1 2Disagree

15 Jul 2019 22:29:49
I literally cannot believe the hullabaloo over the fee, it's even worse on twitter, accounts posting #glazerout and moaning about not spending money, then in the net breath complaining about transfer fees! Personally the fee could be £800 mil as long as it makes us better I couldn't give a rubbish, and make no mistake it will make us better.

Agree5 1Disagree

15 Jul 2019 23:49:21
£45m for Lewis Dunk makes Maguire look cheap. Let them laugh.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jul 2019 07:16:03
Deano that’s my biggest gripe with fans in recent times. Complaining we’ve not spent any money and also complaining about high fees and wages. It can’t be both.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jul 2019 09:55:05
Football fans use anything and everything to beat each other over the head with. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I'd rather the money be spent improving our defence for the next 5 or 6 years than sitting in a bank account.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 17:49:12
Fred to Galatasaray? . Hope so.

Believable3 13Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 18:14:56
Hope not, there's a player in there somewhere and with herrera gone, pogba potentially leaving and matic on his last legs. We'll be needing him. No sign of an impending incoming CM as of yet so i don't believe he'll be going anywhere just yet.

Agree15 1Disagree

15 Jul 2019 18:30:18
Fred started to look good towards the end of the season.
He will have a better second season like Lindelof.

Agree11 1Disagree

15 Jul 2019 19:13:59
I don't get how Fred's been written off by some already, he's a good player and given time he will show his worth. It's just taken him a while to settle in.

Agree10 1Disagree

15 Jul 2019 19:16:01
He has to have something if we scouted him and paid £50m!

Agree3 1Disagree

16 Jul 2019 09:20:38
He can't be that bad if Pep and Jose wanted to sign him. Give him another season, I think he will massively improve.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Jul 2019 01:39:10
In our squad there are 3 players in hoping for significant improvement from in particular.
In my opinion fred martial and sanchez could not have done any worse.
Loads of ability there but little to show for it last season.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 08:13:49
The Sun are still suggesting that Maguire is set to undergo a Medical today re a move to MUFC. However, The Telegraph claims that we have not yet met Leicester’s valuation and are reluctant to go beyond £60m. Are The Sun simply inventing click bait or is The Telegraph wrong. Either way this is somewhat strange.

Believable0 2Unbelievable

15 Jul 2019 08:28:32
I wouldn't worry about the smaller details. Everything points to him joining us so just wait for the announcement. You'll lose your mind if you believed every reporter 🤪.

15 Jul 2019 08:32:31
There’s nothing strange. Just newspapers making things up. Best to avoid them.

Ed002 said down the page, He expects the deal to go ahead. (i trust him)

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 08:43:34
If we get him then great. If not it's no big issue. Plenty of CB's out there. I'm hoping Bailey has an injury free season, could be a decent back line of AWB. Lindldhof . Bailey and Shaw. Decent hard working midfielder to break up the play. Striker who can hold onto the ball, Unlike Lukaku, who struggles to stop the ball bouncing of his body parts.

Agree2 1Disagree

15 Jul 2019 08:55:47
Did Ed002 not say yesterday he expected the deal to go through? Unless he says otherwise, maguire is a Utd player in waiting.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jul 2019 09:43:49
Ignore the papers and look down the page where Ed002 says “It should go ahead” more reliable than anyone else on the net.
