Reports are now suggesting that we could be seeing up to 10 players leave in the summer including some very big names.

Van Persie, Falcao, De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Evans, Hernandez, Cleverley and Pereira.

Now, I don't mind seeing some of them go. Lindegaard doesn't have a future, nor does Cleverley, Evans for me is a disaster waiting to happen and Hernandez a one hit wonder. Pereira could be a big loss in the future but who knows at this time how he will develop.

I would however be gutted to see Rafael go and not Valencia who for me is rubbish in every position whether it be RB or RW, all he does is blast crosses and kick it past the fullback, Rafael is better defensively and offensively but admittedly struggles with fitness. DDG would be the big loss, I hope he signs on soon otherwise I really do see him going in the summer and being replaced by the average Krul. I'm also not that bothered to see the back of RVP or Falcao. RVP will be 32 by the start of next season and just isn't the player he used to be, he will no doubt stay though being LVG's golden boy. And lastly to Falcao, we had such hopes but he hasn't impressed and even with RVP's absence I don't expect to see him starting every game, Rooney and Wilson could be a potential partnership.

Whilst Young and Carrick will get new deals, as will Wilson.

I expect Falcao to start most games or Rooney to go back upfront. I can't see us playing Wilson as a lone striker but I really hope he get's more game time.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2015 18:27:41
I can see Wilson going out on loan with januzaj with depay and lewandowski coming in that would be a good replacement

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2015 12:21:07
Agree with most of the things fresh. Rafael is our best RB, he has a few fitness issues but I'd rather see him than see McNair or Valencia there. Coleman and Rafael there would be brilliant. And I so hope we keep away from Dani Alves.
Antonio Valencia is past his prime, he was brilliant, but 2 major injuries have just changed him.
Krul is better than average, but the most appropriate replacement should be Asmir Begovic. Lloris would be too expensive.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2015 15:41:07
Dont care how many players go what we need to happen is the manager (i say manager the clown who picks the god awful line ups and formations), to go. 8 months on and his team looks just as bad now as they did against Swansea on the opening day of the season. He is a complete clown who has no right to be arrogant after the rubbish he has served up over 8 months. No other manager in the history of football has ruined so many players careers Mata, Falcao, RVP, Di Maria, Rooney, Herrera have all be made to look awful this season by that clown.

Hi Eds
speculation in the media seems to be gathering regarding Di Maria and him being both unsettled/unhappy and a PSG plot in the summer? Anystrength to the rumours? Personally think he has looked and played average in the last few weeks and his passing has been abysmal but put that down to the reported intruder incident and him playing out of his preferred position
cheers in advance

{Ed002's Note - Nope - I can't help with that at all. PSG are suffering from sanctions and have other priorities.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

27 Feb 2015 19:06:40
Marquinhos plus 30Mil anyone? We can but dream.
After watching the Swansea game and Di Maria ambling about I just sense his heart isn't in it!
Hope I am proved wrong now with the sort of match winning performances he was putting in at the end of last season, .but I sadly suspect I won't be!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2015 08:18:11
untill he's played in a posistion that suits him (WIDE) for a decent amount of games di maria isn't going to be as effective.

its criminal we always seem to play players out of position.

@Ed002

You have given us an insight about the possible ins and targets for the summer, but what about the possible departures?

Do you know of any interest in RVP, Mata, Fellaini? And also is there any interest in Chicharito and Nani or could they return to stay at the club?

{Ed002's Note - It will depend what happens with the manager but Mata, Falcao and Rafael could well move on - perhaps De Gea.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

27 Feb 2015 12:38:25
What about Nani, RVP and Evans Ed? would I be right in assuming they would be available but that there might not be a viable option for them?

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hey ed(s), was just wondering what you make of what Andreas Pereira has come out and said about considering offers from Juve and chatting to Pogba? I've heard great things about his ability but seems like he's getting a bit ahead of himself here. i'm guessing he might be thinking by name-dropping Pogba that the club will be forced into avoiding another perceived embarrassing situation and deliver his payday. Was just wondering if you knew a little more. Thanks in advance!

{Ed001's Note - it is a similar situation, he is looking to leave as he knows he will get a big payday and playing time elsewhere. Not sure he is the same level as Pogba, but he looks to me to be good enough to have got in the team this season in midfield. Especially when there were injuries.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

26 Feb 2015 14:32:17
if a player has got that attidute, rather than keeping his head down and working hard to try and get in the team then good riddance,

hes done nothing to warrant a place in the team or anything to get a big pay raise

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2015 20:48:00
If De Gea does leave (and i hope he doesn't). What would be our chances of signing Rene Adler? Spurs would ask for the world if another premier league club is interested in Lloris. And I'm sure i read somewhere that he is a massive United fan.

{Ed002's Note - Zero whilst the club has no interest in him. Try Krul.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Feb 2015 10:16:12
He won't leave, not for the time being anyway I don't believe.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Feb 2015 12:14:53
I hope not Brendan i'd rather play Valdes than sign krul.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Feb 2015 12:53:14
Ed what is the deal with Robert Lewandowski at the moment. He seems to have wide spread media attention from the tabloids claiming he isn't happy at Bayern, doesn't like playing the false nine role in Peps team and that Bayern would be happy to receive a major fee for a player they got on a free transfer?

Assuming last year Lewandowski could have choosen any team on the planet is this just fabricated garbage?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the tabloids are saying but there is no "situation" with Lewandowski and no thoughts that he is unhappy nor looking to leave Bayern Munich.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Feb 2015 14:04:07
That is a shame, I was hoping he would be near the top of our list.

Thanks mate. Thought as much.

24 Feb 2015 10:19:01
Hi Eds, what would you say the likelihood is of us landing Dybala in the Summer keeping in mind the club has already confirmed interest??

{Ed002's Note - Very, very, very slim indeed.}

23 Feb 2015 22:03:54
Good evening Eds; any truth in the rumours that Nigel de Jong will be joining us? I've read somewhere that we're in 'advanced' talks.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so.}

Hi eds /all
any substance to the Lucas Biglia rumours or the kid Danilo? cheers

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. Someone representing Manchester United was at the Lazio game against Genoa a week or two back. Keep in mind that the club have representatives at many games.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Hey eds/everybody,
Ed002 thanks firstly for that well detailed info about the summer.i take it the general rumour of LVG wanting a RB, CB, WINGER, CM and a STRIKER are true then?do you think united might look to sign 2 cbs rather then 1?i also like the way united are looking at young players too with LVG looking to build on the youth.thanks Ed002 again if you get time to reply.

{Ed002's Note - Much will depend on any staff changes at the club FAce. I don't know about any "general rumours" but clubs are always looking to bring kids in - but I can't help so easily there. As for centre backs - if they push for Terence Kongolo then one other will arrive as well.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Feb 2015 13:32:03
how good is kongolo ed? never heard of him

{Ed002's Note - I have no way of measuring "goodness".}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2015 06:03:09
Hello Ed002 firstly thanks for the detailed reply, when you mention staff changes, is that in terms of manager? in your opinion or knowledge do you think LVG will be manager of manchester united come the summer?.
thanks in advance

Richie

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation Rickie and my opinion is moot on the matter.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2015 19:24:21
On hearing what Gary Neville has said, on sacking Van Gaal would be a mistake . Seems the corridors of Old Trafford are starting to leak news . Unless of course Giggsy has given him the heads up. Sack him for me . He his no better than Moyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2015 15:45:26
Hi Ed's

Is it true that Everton are looking to sign Santiago Arias in the summer, and would that mean they might be open to a bid from MU for Coleman?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Hi all,
Eds, thanks as always for the site. Ed002, I noticed you asked for a reminder today about giving some ideas of Summer transfer targets, well please consider this a reminder my friend!
Look forward as always to reading your post!

{Ed002's Note - Thanks for the reminder.

GK: If De Gea goes perhaps Krul or Handanovic will be added.

RB: Coleman would be expensive and remains "not for sale". Perhaps Clyne would be a better option. Perhaps Alves.

CB: Mats Hummels remains the primary target, if available. The summer iscertainly realistic, particularly given the Champions League situation. Garay could certainly be an option for the summer - he will be leaving Zenit. Alternatively, Godin or Howedes if available but I doubt a first choice. Virgil van Dijk has been looked at but there is interest from elsewhere and I cannot see him sitting on the bench. Miranda - only makes sense at a much, much lower fee. Terence Kongolo is of growing interest to both Manchester clubs and Southampton. Tyrone Mings has been looked at but remains one for the future and with Rojo and Shaw seems an unlkikely choice. Otamendi was of interest to Barcelona, Zenit, Chelsea, Napoli, Manchester City and CSKA before a move to Valencia in January 2014 and a subsequent loan to Atlético Mineiro. As Otamendi has only effectively been playing in Spain since August 2014 a move in January was unlikely - but he was of interest.

DM: Strootman has been injured for a while but he remains a target the summer. Vidal is due to be sold in the summer and might be an option. Carvalho remains a player that both Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in and his situation remains the same. He is for sale, but the asking price would need to come down to make any move possible. Previous interest from Monaco, Inter, Chelsea and Juventus has gone because of the price. Nainggolan might be an option.

W: Depay is still not really ready for the EPL at this time but I suspect Manchester United will look to making an offer. Gaitan is certainly an option.}

FW: Santos' Gabriel Barbosa continues to be of interest to Chelsea, Fiorentina and Manchester United. However, much is expected of him and there is an agreement between Santos and Barcelona that will be exercised in 2016 if he does not beforehand. Do not be surprised by a bid for Benzema. Cavani is being offered around the clubs who have previously shown an interest. The club continues to look at other options as well. Inter, Chelsea and Manchester United are keeping tabs on Fluminense's Kenedy but he is far from ready for the EPL right now.}

Thanks ed.

That makes for very pleasant reading. I would love to see get Hummels, Clyne, Vidal, Depay, Gaitan and Cavani/Benzema with RVP, Falcao, Valencia, Nani and Evans leaving the club to make room.

We have been linked with Gaitan for so long that it would be good to have him to see what he can do and how well he links up with Di Maria. I suspect he may be a replacement for Mata.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2015 16:19:13
Thanks Ed for your opinions.
I think this year will be as much about outgoings (even manager) as incomming.
We will need to balance the books on wages as the Eds have explained many times which could mean that we need to do as Chelsea have done and sell before we buy. On that front I can imagine a scenario where we release some big players (Mata, RVP, ADM) in order to get others in that give us better balance and take the team forward.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think it will be too hard to balance our books. Evans, Nani, RVP, Falcao, Rafael :(, Anderson, Hernandez and Mata could all be potentially leaving. Could raise a bit of money on those sales as well}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2015 12:54:56
Right Ed. I think we would find it difficult to offload Nani and RVP though due to other clubs not wanting to meet their cur wages/wage demands?

Hi everyone,
Was just posting to let you all know of some very possible summer bussiness deals.

PSV's manager has spoken about Memphis Depay and mentioned that he will most likely be leaving in the summer to join a bigger club. It is being speculated that LvG may swoop to sign the Dutch youngster.

Paul Pogba's agent has stated that his client does not hold any grudge against Man Utd. In fact Pogba has been quoted saying that they were some of his most fond footballing years. don't rule out a huge summer bid to re-sign the French midfield maestro.

With regards a world class central defender, Mats Hummels will be much more likely to accept a deal once he has captained his stuggling Dortmund side to safety in the Bundesliga. Again he would be costly but in my opinion would be a remarkable piece of bussiness.

Other big players touted for a move to Manchester include Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and the young Brazil and PSG defender, Marquinos.

I welcome any responses to this post from you guys and the Edds, thanks!

Hi Eds

I seen some rumour about the Brazilian Kennedy and we're showing interest, is that the case/

Sorry tried search but couldn't find it

{Ed001's Note - is it not Kenedy? The Fluminese lad? If so I was told Wolfsburg, Porto, Sporting and both Milan clubs have shown interest, but I don't know of any other.}

Hi all,

Quick question, sly sports have an article quoting hamann. He speculates that lewandowski isn't having the best time at Bayern and that he is perfectly suited to a few English sides namely man utd. Is there any substance to this? Also any information the eds have on him would be great.

Thanks

Hi Ed,

Is the reports about RM willing to cash in on Ronaldo in the summer true in order to fund a massive spending spree for the likes of Hazard etc?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, someone has been teasing you. Twitter?

There are lots of others to be sold but they will be looking to keep Ronaldo.}

How keen are we on icardi ed? Also is this Kenny from Brazil as good as it sounds and could a deal be on the cards?

{Ed002's Note - Inter's Mauro Icardi has been subject to interest from Atletico Madrid and Chelsea. Inter want to have him sign a new deal. I can't help with the other question.}

A question regarding Reus. Ed002 - You've made it clear not to hold our breath over us signing him, you also mentioned that a number of clubs (Chelsea and Madrid if I recall correctly) have backed away from previous interest for whatever reason. I'm not fussed about the reasons but I am curious as to what clubs, if any, are still interesting in Reus?

{Ed002's Note - Reus is staying at Dortmund next season. As such any interest is now on the back burner. You are right about Chelsea and Real Madrid - they both met with representatives of the player and the club but walked away.}

Are you aware of any interest in geis from mainz, seems like a hot midfield prospect?

16 Feb 2015 09:54:25
It looks like Roma and Cagliari may have already started negotiations to work out Radja Nainggolan's ownership so he is 100% Roma's. Ed002 have United been in contact with either Roma or Nainggolan's agent about a potential transfer? I just wonder as you've mentioned him possibly moving to United if his ownership situation is sorted out.

What are other people's views on him? Watched him again today and he looks like a solid midfielder, similar style to Vidal albeit more defensively focused. Maybe a cheaper, less risky alternative to the Chilean?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any contact Ozwald.}

Eds - with the much publicised move for Kevin Strootman looking less likely due to his injury concerns and the Pogba auction looking like an expensive game, what is our postion on William Carvalho?

We have been linked in the past and the lad is a competitive mountain of a man who would add steel to our midfield. I understand he will not come cheap but would he be available and would we be interested?

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - last I heard, which was in the summer, he was not currently under consideration. Arsenal are still monitoring him, I don't know if the Strootman injury will see United go back and take another look at him though, sorry.}

Hi Ed's

With Kevin Strrotmans latest injury, do you think he will still be a target for us this summer?

Thanks

{Ed001's Note - I would expect it to be assessed closer to the summer, checking on his progress, but I would think that this would see the club moving focus, even if LVG doesn't.}

Thanks for the reply. I'd love to see us moving for someone like Pogba but I may be wrong, but with SAF still in the background at Old Trafford that may be out of the question.
