Hi Eds. Assuming that it's just tabloid guff but would Utd be looking at Frenkie De Jong as an option and if so if there a chance Barcelona would entertain a bid?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Frenkie de Jong (CM) Tolisso upgrade for Bayern Munich but Barcelona don't want to sell although if a significant offer (perhaps €90M) were made their financial situation would mean they would have to consider it. During discussions between Barcelona and Chelsea, options for a number of players were discussed but Chelsea do not again want protracted negotiations which led nowhere over another player last summer - they may make a take it or leave it offer including a player or perhaps two. Manchester City may provide another solution using Laporte as part of the deal - and don't be surprised if PSG or Manchester United switch their attention to him but both have preferred targets. I would doubt he will move.}

Hey Ed, who is United's preferred target? Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but not being in the Champions League may well be an issu.}

Preferred for CM, but not for DM right (assuming based on prior lists that they are separate considerations)?

{Ed002's Note - This is nothing to do with DM.}

Ed, is this an EtH preference of player?

{Ed002's Note - No. The club.}

Interesting Ed. I was told that the his agent is just using united to boost his profile in negotiations with Lazio for a new contract or a move to another Italian club on a bigger contract. The club placed that “he wants to go to Manchester” story because they were annoyed with his agent making up the interest.

Woukd much rather Konrad Laimer or Haidara than SMS.

Sergej would be very expensive option. Do u think we might go after Neves or Tielemans, they would be cheaper.

06 May 2022 19:08:05
Thanks Ed. Can you explain?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know what you mean.}

Surely this would mean another mistake made by the club? Signing a player that isn't the preference of the manager?

07 May 2022 07:01:04
How can the club and the incoming manager has separate transfer targets? Surely this compromises the manager?

We have a director of football and a scouting department, whos job it is to scout and identify targets then shortlist those who suit the style of play the club are looking to implement. They would then select the preffered options and along with the mananger decide the targets. At the moment they haven't done the last part, because our manager is not currently in place however, i would imagine they are "lining up their ducks" so to speak. So that once we have, they can go and make an effort for the players they agree on.

Groundhog day.

Not really ken, i would say this is the first season our director of football will be truly incharge of these things.

Dbrooks I meant the same questions over and over and people jumping to crazy assumptions and conclusions.
All will become clear in good time.
