Hi Ed, was just wondering whether a concrete offer has been put forward to dortmund for sancho and whether the lines of communication between the clubs is open?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to blow by blow account but the clubs are a long way apart in terms of the finances and the agent fees.}

I'd imagine Dortmund would be more interested in a cash offer rather than an exchange of building materials for Sancho.

Can’t see it happening, it would be a steel at that price, but they’d block it.

Apparently were linked to Messi now. He's going to have a tough time knocking Greenwood off the RW position if he comes.

Dean Hendersons contract expires on June 2022 surely we will bring him back next year with some sort of road map that he is the future and he has that year to prove he is better than De Gea?
What we don't factor in is the pressure of being our No 1 as every mistake is critiqued like no other! He is only 22 but I think we run a risk of losing him if we don't prove to him he has a future! I think a year back here fighting it out with DDG would be beneficial to him!

Not if he's sat in the bench. Also, it's not much use if de Gea sits on the bench for £350k a week either. I think one has to go but there are only a limited number of clubs who will take de Gea on that money.

Imagine if Real Madrid came in for Henderson next year. that would cause a stir.

Ed002, I think you said Madrid aren't too happy with Courtois. Are they interested in de Gea and do you think there is a possibility they could move for Henderson?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid have no interest in him at this time.}

07 Jul 2020 16:48:28
Not great either if DDG is on the pitch making more mistakes getting 350k a week?

David being currently dissed and taken as a liability, is a big joke after all he did in “carrying” United post-Fergie era. Read Schmeichel’s view about this on the official United page. And that’s Peter speaking with experience and expertise. I am not saying we should not keep or ready Henderson, but we should also not dismiss De Gea in terms of what he can still offer.

Agree4 0Disagree

08 Jul 2020 09:56:54
Henderson is a promising keeper, but he is not at DDGs level by any means yet. If he patient, he will replace him. He needs a loan move never year to a bigger club, with more pressure on him.

Hi Ed002, appreciate this is the MUFC page but seeing as he is one of our targets - are any clubs other than us showing an interest in Grealish? Will Villa's valuation of the player change dependent on whether they manage to stay in the Premier League or does it not really work like that?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Jack Grealish (CM/AM) remains viable for Manchester United as he can play on the left and in a more attacking role - Aston Villa will need to let him go if relegated and have an FFP issue that could manifest itself as early as this coming summer - MU may well look to exploit that as he offers something different to Bruno Fernandes and other options are off the table at present. Whilst Grealish will certainly leave if AV are relegated, they may not be looking to slash his fee accordingly. There has been interest from Spurs but that will have gone now - they have money issues and would never meet the asking price in any case.}

07 Jul 2020 20:09:07
Ed002, would Utd have to pay over the odds for Grealish then?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Aston Villa will want a heft amount.}

09 Jul 2020 15:20:50
Grealish has been poor since the restart. Tonight he gets a chance to show his potential suitors what he can do directly.

Hi Ed. Are you aware of any strikers United are looking at? Everyone knows we are looking at Sancho but I don't think another winger is what we need. I personally don't feel Marital is the consistent 25/30 goal a season striker that we need. I love Rashford and Greenwood but still need a few seasons to improve.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed from what has previously been said.}

07 Jul 2020 08:44:51
It's funny how the target number of goals our strikers need to score always goes up with the number they actually score.

"Martial isn't a 20 goal a season striker"

Martial scored 20 goals.

"Martial isn't a 25 goal a season striker".

I disagree, Martial has been out injured for a total of two months this season, he has 20 goals in 34 starts this season. We have played 42 games so far, have 5 league games left, plus a few cup games.

So that's 8 games missed through injury, and at least another 8 games left to play. I think Martial would have every chance of scoring another 5-10 goals in an extra 16 games.

Mean while, most of those games have come in a team up until the end of January were struggling to create good chances.

Next season with Pogba, Bruno and possibly Sancho creating much better and many more goal scoring chances I think Martial has the potential to score 25-30 goals.

The only thing that can really stop him is injuries.

Totally agree Shappy. He's a fantastic player and is getting the numbers he is without the padding of penalties.

Agree5 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 09:45:29
I hope you are right Shappy. Martial struggles in a side where his back is to goal, but lately since the return we have been very good facing their goal.

Agree4 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 10:16:09
Agree Shappy.
Martial and Rashford are both on 20 goals.
And we still have games left in the league, FA Cup and Europa.

We must also remember that Bruno arrived only in January. The goal scoring ratio since then is the best in the last 7 years.

Now we have Greenwood waiting in the wing as well who looks ready to seize his chance.
Patrice Evra recently mentioned that there has been a huge change in Martial's attitude and desire.

I too have been a critic of him, but he is proving many of them wrong.

Agree2 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 12:28:30
Greenwood is also starting and scoring at the moment!

Martial has not played the CF role for long but he’s learning quickly. Plus we have ighalo off the bench who is the perfect mix of quality and experience.

Agree3 0Disagree

08 Jul 2020 11:09:50
I can see our front 3 next season (whichever it is out of Martial/ Rashford/ Greenwood/ Sancho/ Other) performing similar to the Liverpool front 3. Interchanging positions rather than an out and out number 9 which allows Martial to score the goals he did the other day. We have said this before but if the front 3 can score around the 15-20 goal mark each we will be there or there abouts.

Matic officially signs new contract until 2023.

Believable3 0Unbelievable

06 Jul 2020 12:28:48
Good thing. He is a class act when on form and fresh. He looked very leggy 6 months ago but like a lot of others he has had a new lease of life since bruno came and he has options ahead of him when he looks forward.

Agree2 0Disagree

Agree Ken. Seems to be a top professional and a good influence on the team. I was pleased to hear him speak about Scott in particular. Sensible.
Question is if we are willing to give a 31 yr old Matic a 3 yr deal, could we offer willian the same? i know this is unlikely, but may be a shrewd piece of business. knows the league, still has pace, good work ethic and adds experience to the front line. Will allow greenwood to develop more over the next couple of years. Maybe free up some cash for a quick CB, AM cover and postpone the move for Sancho?

Will highly depend on wage demands, I‘d say.

Ed02 I know you have stated on several occasions in the past that pogba wants out. Given the C.V. and the knock on affect this is having financially for clubs to afford the type of fee his transfer would attract. Have you heard of any changes his thinking given the Bruno partnership and the potential of the team going forward with a few key signings? Are the club actively trying to extend his contract? Thanks again.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I have no way of knowing what he is thinking I am afraid. The club are not speaking with his agent at this time.}

06 Jul 2020 09:32:13
I think Pogba stays next season. If we continue to play well and look like competing he’s more likely to sign a contract extension though Champions League will be a factor too. That said I don’t think Real and Barcelona are chomping at the bit to sign him anyway.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 10:10:01
I think he will stay this summer, I don't see anyone offering what the club values him at. However, I don't see him signing a new deal. I don't see him changing his mind, he wanted Spain four years ago but settled for Manchester. Nothing in the past four years has changed his mind and I don't see anything over the next year doing so either.

He'll stay next season, then leave next summer on a free probably to Real Madrid which is his preferred destination.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 11:19:25
Thanks as always Ed. Would love him to settle down and finally fulfil the potential he has and drive the side forward. We can always hope!

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 15:22:26
He won’t leave on a free next season. Not in a million years. He’ll either go this summer, sign a new deal or leave for free in two years.

I imagine he will end up signing a new deal at the end of the summer transfer window when it becomes clear the club aren’t willing to budge on their valuation and then end up getting sold the following summer. At his age it doesn’t make sense to stay at a club that you don’t want to be at for another 2 years when there’s a possibility of only having to stay for 1.

Just wondering what people's thoughts are on Nathan Ake? Left footed cb, should be available for a decent price if Bournemouth get relegated, definite upgrade on Jones and arguably baily. I'm thinking sancho, grealish and Ake isn't a bad window. Maybe ruffle a few feathers and go for aubamyang.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

06 Jul 2020 08:37:33
He's an OK player but I don't think he is an improvement on what we already have.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 09:00:08
He's a decent player, however I think he suffers fron the same lapses of concentration or going missing that Maguire suffers from. The difference is Ake has pace to recover more often.

I would have waited until a little longer than a few days since our side tore him and his defence apart though before suggesting him😂.

Agree6 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 11:14:01
😂😂 Nows as good a time as any shappy, think his pace is what's needed next to maguire.
