Dunno if anyone has said this already and I know it’s sly sports but they’re reporting we’ve put a 36m bid in for youri tielemans.

Ed’s do you know if this is happening?

Thanks all.

{Ed002's Note - He was a target for Mr Mourinho and bereft of other ideas he has been of interest - I am not aware of any offer at this point in time.}

I hope this one is true. Would instantly improve our midfield.

{Ed002's Note - By letting Pogba leave.}

18 Jun 2019 17:04:42
I hope Pogba leaves.

18 Jun 2019 17:48:07
Me too, instead of giving him more money just get rid of the guy already, he isn't that good. Sometimes i wonder how much Scholes would be worth in this crazy market. get energetic midfielders and most importantly people who want to be here.

@Ed002

I hope Pogba leaves to be honest. He seems unhappy, doesn't want to be here and doesn't really provide a balanced midfield and limits us tactically. Certainly not the hardest worker on the pitch.

There is no point in keeping unhappy players who want to leave. I wish we followed a policy like Chelsea do in that they let unhappy players go and just try to get the best deal possible. They don't even seem worried about letting players go within the EPL.

Pogba's transfer fee and wages could be reinvested to bring in a couple of midfielders and build a much more balanced hard working midfield.

Are PSG interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that MU are picing him so high that the interested sides are going to step back. PSG have other preferences right now and they see hom as expensive.}

Ed002, yeah if he’s Pogba’s replacement then great. I still think we’d need another midfielder on top of Tielemans or Bruno Fernandes if Pogba was to leave.
I’d like us to go for Doucouré from Watford.

{Ed002's Note - 12 a side next year then?}

18 Jun 2019 19:34:42
That improve our defence, probably.

18 Jun 2019 20:35:04
Just saw online Juventus put in bid for £140 million for Pogba
I don't know if I should laugh or cry?
I would take it if part of the deal would be to take Mr Sanchez off our books.

Imagine pogba under saf, he'd be long gone, I like osg's transfer strategy, I just hope he can survive the bad times that are coming and improve his management, dark times are ahead for us, belief is what makes us strong and I believe osg will lead us if given the chance, pogba, Lukaku, martial, rojo, darmaian, get rid, smalling, Jones are united no matter there quality, young English and hungry is perfect way forward, what English lad doesn't want to play for United, sheer clear of raiolas players and find the next scholes Keane Neville Bruce pallister Irwin Cole sheringham giggs Beckham and a shearer who regrets what he could of had, Ferdinand the greatest defender in EPL history, vvd couldn't touch that boy in his prime, trophies say it all, even vidic should be laughing, our success is built on British players with a sprinkle of foreign magic, same as Liverpool's dominance in the 70s and 80s.

Difficult to understand why United are targeting all of these ‘Mourinho targets’ when OGS has a different style to that of Jose. What is the plan? Surely there must have been some sort of arrangement on strategy when OGS was appointed to the managerial post. Baffling.

18 Jun 2019 19:55:11
002 I know you don’t like to speculate but can you see this situation being resolved? Surely it’s bad business to keep him, for reasons on both sides.

{Ed002's Note - MU should let him go for the best reasonable deal they can get and move on. It has to happen.}

19 Jun 2019 00:52:54
I hope Pogba leaves too.

19 Jun 2019 09:30:34
Fergie got rid of him. Enough said.

19 Jun 2019 09:41:05
Maze, I don't think it works like that. Ole and the other coaching staff will decide what they feel the squad needs, this will be be passed on to the chief scout and they will organise having players scouted to find players who fit the criteria.

The club builds up dossiers on many players. Players are in the main able to adapt and play in many different ways. When Ronaldo played for us, or Real Madrid, or Juventus or Portugal he has been asked to play different roles in different ways. As such it's not that surprising that the club are still interested in some of the players they were under Jose Mourinho.

However, currently the club have only signed one player Daniel James a player that was not of interest under Jose. So clearly there have been some changes.

But have the needs of the squad changed that much? We still need a commanding CB, we need more mobility in midfield, we are lacking a wide player who can go around the outside.

Thank you Ed. Surely his position is untenable now.

{Ed002's Note - He wants to leave.}

19 Jun 2019 14:00:36
@Ed002

Completely agree with you. Just get the best deal and move on.

It would also allow us to move quickly for potential replacements like Rabiot and Tielemans instead of putting those on hold and risk losing out if we drag the Pogba situation too long and then end up losing Pogba and getting neither.

There is a very good argument to be made that we would be better off with Rabiot/ Longstaff, Tielemans and Bruno Fernandes / James Maddison in the squad instead of Pogba.

Similarly with Lukaku, are United pricing him out of a move as well? Reports have been coming out about Inter wanting to include Icardi/ Perisic and we aren't interested in either.

{Ed002's Note - MU will struggle to replace Lukaku so they know they must initially not look to sell.}
