Any chance of a list of the players activly looking to leave at some point?

{Ed002's Note - This is the same as I have previously provided. The likes of Young (managed to get out); Smalling (move blocked by MU); Marcos Rojo (although not wanted and Fiorentina were very interested, MU blocked the move and he ended up on loan at Estudiantes; Angel Gomes wants out; Paul Pogba wants out and wants to get his career on track again with interest for this summer - else he will run his contract down; Tahith Chong desparately wants out and talking to another side; Jesse Lingard knows that Manchester United see him as potentially being surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and that the current coach is not keen on him - so, not unreasonably. there is an ad hoc agreement with Mino that allows him to look for other options for the player. Right now I am aware there have been approaches to several sides and that a couple might be open to making a formal approach, but there remains a concern that as an English player there is a high risk if he were to move to mainland Europe - so the interest could easily wane. Interest in England I am told is thin on the ground although at least two sides have been approached. I suspect the summer and decisions yet to be agreed at the club will define whether he stays or goes.}

Aside from embarrassing decisions made by non-football professional businessmen, no great loss here.

Chong been given chances and not taken them - looks too light weight for PL

Gomes - must be a reason he hasn’t had more game time. Other youngsters have taken their chances

Rojo - too rash and never United quality

Smalling - decent back up, can understand why he wanted to move

Pogba- please please go, you don’t want to be at United. Please go and start your career elsewhere.

Lingard - maybe needs a fresh start elsewhere, maybe too much going on off football pitch.

Gomez and Chong are dissaponted but that is based on promise not actions. On the whole I have no problem with any of that list leaving.
Creates financial room and space in the 25 to bring in new blood or move up some under 23s.
To be honest it is one of her positives Olly shoukd be praised for his strength to move players on, despite the club wanting to hold on certain circumstances.

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to OGS.}

Won't be dissapointed with the above players leaving. The player that really should be shown the door is Phil Jones.

ED02 thank you for the information. Just one thing - who s actually taking decisions? If I m not wrong some time ago you said that Woodward does not make footballing decisions. Earlier on today, when commenting about players being shipped out, you remarked that Ole is not involved in this.
So who s making these decisions?

{Ed002's Note - The club has a number of people who are responsible. Most of the supporters are not bright enough to realise that an accountant (mr Edwards) is not deciding which players to buy and sell.}

Will be a shame to see Lingard go, a combination of off field issues and a coach who doesn't believe in him has probably finished his United career. Will hopefully get back on track where ever he ends up.

05 Feb 2020 22:46:11
But he is a part of the team who negotiate for players?

{Ed002's Note - Who? What do you mean?}

06 Feb 2020 10:42:26
Grim, he needs to take some personal responsibility for his own performance as well. Too easy to blame everything and everyone else, rather than the player himself.

There are many factors involved probably. Every player is different, it's up to the manager how to identify how to get the best out of them.
