With De Gea looking to probably leave during the summer, a strong goalkeeper will need to be purchased?

Geronimo Rulli
Alphonse Areola
And of course Jack Butland

These guys need to be in the mix at being purchased?

Thoughts anyone?

Also, again there are rumours about Laporte and Morata being looked at?

Is this BS? Or any truth in the rumours?

Believable1 Unbelievable12

06 Feb 2016 15:36:27
If DDG goes which I doubt with Jose coming in. I think Forster or Schmeichel will be looked at as well as Butland. Dave will stay though 😆😆.

Agree4 Disagree1

06 Feb 2016 15:52:59
Forster for me,

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Feb 2016 16:10:21
I just hope De Gea stays full stop. If we bring in some more good attacking players we should be fine?

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 16:10:54
Butland, Perin or Ter Stegen would be great options. All have experience in a top league.

Agree4 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 17:17:03
Forgot about Mattia Perin, he's a good shout!

Still hope De Gea stays!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 18:33:46
Would love Morata, he's built for the premier league and for me he's one of the best up and coming strikers.

Agree2 Disagree1

06 Feb 2016 18:47:36
forster butland are both a good shout as well as ter stegen.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 18:52:52
Where would he be going in the summer with Real likely to be banned?

Agree0 Disagree2

06 Feb 2016 20:11:10
I believe the ban has been appealed and they'll likely be able to buy in the summer.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 20:11:26
Real won't be banned. They will appeal it and delay the ban, Dave will be gone. Also doubt Jose will be here.

Agree0 Disagree4

06 Feb 2016 20:19:17
China £155mill LOL 😆😆.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 20:35:48
Butland or Forster for me. Hear Areola's a bit of a tit.

Agree6 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 20:39:57
The ban has already been delayed till after the summer. Keep up guys 😜.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 21:44:28
What Laporte rumours Ronnie?

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 23:16:09
Oh Wallace, really? Lol.

Agree4 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 08:17:01
Thanks Shappy 😉.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 09:19:08
Has to be Butland for me

Areola isn't ready, Forster isn't ready, Perin is the long term option for Juventus to replace Buffon, think Perin will end up at a top Italian team regardless

The only other outsider is Kasper Schmeichel but I think United would go all out on Butland.

Agree1 Disagree1

07 Feb 2016 22:32:40
It'll end up being Cilsen (spelling) . Ronnie - Butland is a decent shout and that's who I'd like but there's no chance it'll be the other 2.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 22:31:59
Hi ed 001 the jose rumours seem to have gone into overdrive have you heard anything? Also if lvg steps down as manager can you see him staying on in a capacity to oversee the academy changes? He seems to have done very well in that respect.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - no and no.}

07 Feb 2016 09:20:02
LVG will end up being involved with the Netherlands national team as a consultant or something like that.

Apparently, there was a secret meeting of the board can any off the eds confirm this?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

{Ed004's Note - We can't confirm this yet but we are preparing to send Bond (Ed007) in to find out if this is true}

05 Feb 2016 23:26:29
The signals are pointing to the special one.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 23:36:39
I was there, it's true. They're not happy with the biscuits that are being served in the board room. The glazers are not happy.

05 Feb 2016 23:20:27
Thanks ed004.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 02:34:02
"Secret", the clue is in your post.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - The clue's in the spelling of board... Or is it bored?}

05 Feb 2016 14:12:30
A quick question for any edds about,
Would it be possible for a club to put a clause in a contract to stop them going to a rival, or even to a PL club for a set period of time. Just thinking maybe this is why we are waiting for a certain special one.
A manager i once had was sacked and as part of his severance deal was that he could not manage another buisness in a 20 mile radius.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 Feb 2016 18:54:45
Maybe Mourinho wants to wait till the summer. Pre season to get his ideas across, enough time to assess the squad and a summer window to get his players in.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 19:09:11
Not without the agreement of the particpant.

In the case of your old manager he will have agreed to that clause and as such probably got a larger severance package for doing so.

Under EU law you cannot enforce such a clause on someone without their consent. Its against the restriction of trade laws.

So if such a clause is holding Mourinho back from signing with United then it is only doing so because Mourinho agreed to such a clause as part of his exit from Chelsea.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 21:46:47
We sort of did that with Kenyon. He went on gardening leave for a bit. I think its been done before with managers just not made public.

Agree1 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 22:59:57
Just a mad conspiracy theory that came to me today!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 23:20:04
None compete clauses are very common in business although I have no idea whether they are in football. I suppose with football clubs becoming more and more like businesses it would not surprise me.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 09:22:33
I think Mourinho wants to weigh up his options before taking a new club over, plus all the negative stuff that was coming out about him before he got sacked will of died off by then.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 17:17:35
t"Manchester United is the side that offered €190m for Neymar. He has still two years left on his contract but you all [the media] can be calm as my son is so happy here. "

05 Feb 2016 17:48:55
New contract by any chance.

Agree2 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 19:11:59
he told a judge during neymar tax court case .
so if its all for a new contract its a good effort .
you would also of thought barce would be aware if we had made them an offer.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 21:51:50
Call me cynical but usually when someone's agent, even if its their father, comes out and links us to their client usually in a week or two there's a new contract.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 22:02:08
so you think he lied to the judge.
would barcelona not know if there was a bid made.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 22:38:13
Jred, chill out man, morts just having a crack. We're all very cynical when it comes to these 'world class' players being linked to us. It is a bit of a running joke that they'll after a new contract.
Did Neymars father really say this to a judge?! Or is it more just lazy journalism?

Agree1 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 22:41:52
I genuinely believe he will be over here in the summer if it's with us I'm not so sure.
Project pep will be monitoring I imagine.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 09:00:00
I read one of the Eds writing that there is a salary cap for clubs in Spain and Barcelona are only just under it. Both Messi and Neymar are due pay rises in summer which would take them over the threshold and there would be significant consequences to Barcelona if they break the barrier. Therefore logically something would have to give, my guess would be mire likely Messi rather than Neymar who is the future and Pep at City may have more pull for that. Neymar may want a big pay rise but whether Barcelona can deliver it without sacrificing someone else is another matter.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 09:25:16
Neymar is the player Barcelona want to build around, they will find a way to keep hold of both, the league will not want to lose them so will probably give leanway towards Barca.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 10:40:11
Are this mornings reports, about JM close to agreeing a deal to become are next manager true.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

04 Feb 2016 10:57:06
No idea how reliable they are, but I my own opinion is that he will be the next manager.

Agree4 Disagree1

04 Feb 2016 11:51:58
The talk about Mourinho died down a bit, we win a couple of matches and play reasonably well, all of a sudden the Mourinho rumours ramp up again . It's almost like Mourinho and his people are worrying that things might turn around at United so they need to keep the pressure on.

Agree10 Disagree5

04 Feb 2016 12:54:38
Bilko!, I had the same thought. But given my objections to Mourinho didn't want to he the one to point it out.

The reports are from Sky Italia, which is an odd source. We are not an Italian team, Mourinho isn't Italian nor is his agent. No one involved in any deal is likely to be Italian or based in Italy. So I'm wondering where they would pick this up from.

Yet Mourinho having worked in Italy is likely to have some friends in the media over there who would maybe be prepared to let slip some infomation for an old friend.

The timing doesn't make sense, the club didn't buckle and go for Mourinho when the night was darkest. Yet would sack LvG and bring in Mourinho on the back of two good results and arguably our two best performances this season.

It doesn't make sense.

Agree9 Disagree4

04 Feb 2016 13:09:40
unless united know lvg is going in the summer and are already working on the next manager.

Agree7 Disagree6

04 Feb 2016 13:25:43
True jred, but it still doesn't explain how people in Italy knew about it before anyone in this country.

There is no common link between Mourinho, his agent, Manchester United or anyone who works at United. None are Italian or have any tangible links to people in Italy. Seems odd.

Agree7 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 13:32:41
who knows shaps there could be a common link we don't know about.
a lot of reports in italy allegri has agreed a 4 year deal with chelsea as well.

Agree3 Disagree3

04 Feb 2016 13:47:09
If results and performances continue to pick up and we got top four, the club might decide to go one more season of lvg with Giggs to take over after or possibly go with someone like Conte or Allegri for example . Mourinho may feel his best chance to land the job is to keep the pressure on lvg, keep the fans talking about him, chanting his name at games etc and force the club's hand.

Agree7 Disagree3

04 Feb 2016 14:06:45
i would be concered if a business as big as united was swayed by a story in the italian media.

Agree6 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 14:10:41
We are not chanting his name at OT.

Agree3 Disagree7

04 Feb 2016 14:49:04
You know I agree that Jose has a bit of a deserved rep and is a bit of a wild card but he's also a winner of the modern game which is something LVG isn't proving to be. Something I've thought about is how Cantona settled when he joined Utd, he was a bit of a trouble maker a maverick if you like but he found his peace at Old Trafford and became the catalyst for the class of 92 to thrive upon. Isn't it possible Jose could thrive and settle there too? Lots of top players have been and gone at Utd that couldn't handle the pressure that being at Utd presents. I dunno I like the idea of Jose joining, he has passion and a sheer drive to win. I'd have Jose over Pep everyday, Jose knows the premier league and just as LVG has found we have one if not thee toughest league to win in.

Agree8 Disagree6

04 Feb 2016 15:02:29
Jred, I don't think the club would be swayed by a report in Italian media or any other media to he honest.

But it does keep his name at the fore front of fans minds. And as Ed002 has said the reaction of some fans has made people within the club rethink previous ideas.

As for Italian media reporting a possible deal for Allegri to Chelsea, well Allegri is Italian and is managing an Italian club. If Chelsea was to approach him there would he several people in Italy who could leak that info. So it makes sense it coming out in Italian press. Of course it could just be hogwash. I don't rate the integraty of the Itailan media as any better than our own.

Agree6 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 15:15:20
i honestly don't think it is a big deal or very likely that jose is leaking storys to the italian media to keep his name in the fans mind because united beat derby and stoke .

sounds a bit daft to me but who knows?
allegri was just a bit of info, lot of talk about him going to chelsea.

i think lvg cards where marked when the ceo of addidas came out and questioned our style of play to be honest .

Agree1 Disagree3

04 Feb 2016 15:21:14
Matteo been slipping some inside info out 😉.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 16:15:05
Personally, I think that LVG leaves at the end of the season - hopefully having achieved 4th again, and then Jose comes in as he will then have time to mould the squad how he wants it.

Agree3 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 16:36:43
My opinion is that once Mourinho became available we were interested in him, however the board did not want to change manager mid season.

Considering Mourinho was coming off a bad stretch with Chelsea, and United were not enjoying the most fruitful of periods, combining the two (even with a January window) could have resulted in more poor results. This would have led to people questioning the board and Mourinho even more.

I believe Van Gaal is gone in the summer regardless of how he performs. Mourinho will be brought in and have a summer (interupted by the Euro's) to prepare (similar to LvG and the World Cup)

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed004's Note - I am not sure it's as black and white as that. I think there is a good chance Mourinho could become manager in the summer but there are a lot more factors to take into consideration. Personally I think lvg has until the end of the season to prove to the board he is the right man and there will be others interested or approached about the job imo such as conte, blanc, allegri etc}

04 Feb 2016 16:52:10
Where does this Allegri link keep coming from. I know Ed002 mentioned it a while back, but it just doesn't seem logical to me that we would go with another manager with no experience of playing or managing here. Larry White makes sense as he has played here, Jose total sense for obvious reasons. The Italians like Conte and Allegri just doesn't add for some reason. I'd be quite happy with either though. We missed out on the best Italian, Ancelotti.

Agree3 Disagree4

04 Feb 2016 19:09:24
I would not be surprised by any turn of events at the minute. The quietness on Mourinho could be Because interest has gone or never there. or because it is a done deal and everyone's just sitting quietly. Mourinho wherever he goes next year will be refreshed and eager from his Break.
The Allegri thing to us may seem odd but we don't know what connections the clubs have across the world. and as 002 has said it is the long plan.
Others will be considered I believe. Conti I like but with the euros would be another later starter.
Lvg could turn it all around.
Who knows!

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 20:04:01
Well, the club need to do something about it, before we become a mid table team year in year out.

Agree1 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 20:59:10
Allegri is playing some good stuff with Juve Shappy. I read before from ED002 that was suggested as being the LVG replacement in 2017 though I like many thought that script had been ripped up now.

I have a strange feeling LVG may see his contract out now lol.

Agree0 Disagree5

04 Feb 2016 23:02:09
Barring a miraculous change in events and footballing style, LVG is gone in the summer I think.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 23:43:21
I think LVG will be gone the moment that a top four finish becomes mathematically impossible. Looking at our fixtures I think that will be after we lose away at Spurs on Saturday 9th April. Giggs will finish out the season and then we'll see a new manager come in in the summer.

I still think Jose is the best shout but can see Conte and Blanc being in with a shout too. Conte would be a close second choice although he wouldn't be able to come in until after the Euros which I think should be avoided (both Moyes and LVG started late and got off to poor starts as a result) .

Agree1 Disagree2

05 Feb 2016 00:46:44

After we lose at Spurs? Are we that defeatist that we are throwing away games before we have played them? I think if we win our next 2 games top 4 is very much a possibility, we are due a run of form.

Agree3 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 01:48:55
Why let hope get in the way of a good story GDS.

Agree4 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 06:38:23
It was an Italian Journalist that had broke the information about Pep signing with City months and months ago. Perhaps it could be the same guy that is touting Jose to be at OT next year. In my eyes, perhaps we never bought anyone in January as the board are setting aside the cash for the new manager in the Summer.?! Who knows!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - no it was not, the story came from Qatar actually. Nothing to do with an Italian journalist.}

05 Feb 2016 08:08:33
It was an italian journalist who broke the pep to bayern story if I remember right.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 12:10:31
Ed001 first mentioned the Pep to City link (through a Dubai connection) nearly a year ago now. It wasn't until about 6 months ago that our press really picked up on it.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Feb 2016 19:27:55
Hi eds

Reading in the times today that man utd are relocating fans for the home game against midjitlland due to a lack of demand for tickets meaning they may not open the SAF stand.

Is this the sort of issue that has been mentioned before in regard to the board and their view of lvg as less demand obviously means less revenue.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - yes, but this is more down to the size of the opponent than the manager, so will not impact on any decision, especially in the middle of a good run.}

04 Feb 2016 00:17:00
If memory serves me right the exact same thing happened in the Europa league under Fergie as I was moved from the north west quadrant as that wasn't open. So seems like if it is only the 3rd tier not open that there is more demand than 3 years ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 01:07:24
LVG has been criticised for boring football as much (if not more) as for poor results, so why would Mourinho be the automatic choice to replace LVG?

Unless it is because Mourinho's antics will entertain us if the football doesn't?

Seriously though, I can see he has to be under consideration, but I just don't see him being the automatic shoe-in a lot of people seem to think he is. I think Conte may be the best choice, but Blanc might be the first one offered the job.

Personally, while I like Mourinho, I will be disappointed if he gets the job.

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Feb 2016 21:45:14
Giggsy off to Celtic?
