Evening Ed,
There is a report circulating that suggests conversations between Barcelona and United have not solely been about FDJ. Are other players being discussed as part of the deal or as separate deals?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of "conversations" - Manchester United need to make an acceptable bid if they want to sign the player - there is nothing to discuss until they do. I cannot imagine other players are part of any transaction.}

The club need to either to offer an acceptable price or move on. It really is as simple as that.

There is no point in spending a transfer window trying to negotiate a deal for one player, when there is a requirement to reinforce different positions throughout the squad.

If it was a case of FdJ being the only player we needed, then fair enough. The club appear to be dilly dallying.

22 Jun 2022 09:31:33
Totally correct if we sign Fdj but miss out on other deals as a result then we aren’t in a better position. We’d be better off completing these other deals first. Knowing us we will wait too long and other opportunities will vanish. Ajax are selling other players so by the time we go after Lisandro and Antony they will point blank refuse. Our transfer tactics are baffling at best, incompetent at worst.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that you understand the situation at all.}

22 Jun 2022 09:48:02
If I was to guess I'd imagine that if United were interested in another Barcelona player then I'd probably guess at Sergino Dest.

Plays in a position we need to strengthen, has played for EtH previously and is someone Barcelona are trying to sell to raise funds.

22 Jun 2022 09:54:02
Not to mention he is a former Ajax player Shappy which seems to be the only requirement atm!

22 Jun 2022 10:14:48
This is the player I thought of as well shappy. In response to Ed02 I probably don’t understand but uniteds transfer policy isn’t easy to grasp at times. Maybe budget constraints are the reason why we are working in this way but it just seems that a lot of time has passed with very little progress. Like you said either make an acceptable offer or don’t. It’s like we think all of a sudden Barcelona will just accept our current offer.

{Ed002's Note - It is not policy - you simply don't understand what is going on.}

22 Jun 2022 10:27:40
Fair enough, I’m sure it will become clear sooner or later. Have a lovely day Ed wherever you are ?.

{Ed002's Note - And you Tim. I am sure you will get some good news very soon.}

22 Jun 2022 12:15:01
Maybe with all the new people behind the scene, and also with Arnold tying to start as he means to go on, we are trying to undo the 'utd tax ' we have paid on players for years, and this is why it is taking so long?

22 Jun 2022 12:37:27
Thanks Ed. Like the cryptic “good news very soon” response above. It is looking like the club will get FDJ over the line.
Will Antony be the next priority?

{Ed002's Note - That is not how it works.}

22 Jun 2022 13:03:48
To be really cynical, wouldn’t surprise me if loads gets announced tomorrow to bury the news of the Glazer’s dividends.

Thanks to Ed002 as always for honest updates tho.

22 Jun 2022 13:11:58
Would you give us a bit of an insight into things in this regard please Ed? I’d appreciate it as I’m sure all others would.

{Ed002's Note - The clubs identify players and will be working across the full list to see what can be done - all at the same time.}

22 Jun 2022 13:22:15
Sounds way too sensible to be our club Ed - appreciate you as always though. So, what you’re saying is that we could see 1+ deals being announced in quick succession?

{Ed002's Note - No, I did not say that.}

22 Jun 2022 13:24:49
Maybe the club need to put an advert out in the local rag:-

Players needed for football club.
Must haves:- played for Ajax.

22 Jun 2022 13:45:12
Signings will be made, just a bit of patience.

22 Jun 2022 14:28:33
Multiple deals being worked on at once. Wouldn’t be surprised to see 2 announcements in the next week or so.

22 Jun 2022 17:10:22
I reckon we need 3 or 4 windows minimum before we see the resemblance of a proper ETH squad.

22 Jun 2022 18:57:14
I can understand EtH policy for Ajax players he knows. He is going into a dysfunctional dressing room and needs a core of players he can trust. Can he trust any of the current squad, I wouldnt.
