There is a rather convincing photo doing the rounds which clearly shows Woodward, Mourinho and Cech's agent along with a few other official looking gentlemen having a meeting. It's in a restaurant/hotel somewhere. Thoughts?

{Ed004's Note - Maybe just a precaution just in case De Gea does go}

Hi eds, does any of you know if we have any interest in Bruno Martins Indi? Looked good at the World Cup and Van gall obviously likes him, can play the holding midfield role or in defence, very powerful sort of player that we need.

{Ed004's Note - There is no interest in the player from Manutd}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 May 2015 16:28:10
We have the same player at our team - Tylor Blackett. And I don't think Martins Indi can play holding midfielder. He is a NO GO for me.

Gundagans missus as posted a cryptic clue on net, in the airport Dusseldorf to Manchester sign in departure's

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 May 2015 17:03:09
It was an airport sign, it had 2 destinations on it, one was a flight to Dusseldorf the other was a flight to Manchester. She put on it 'guess where I am?', apparently she was actually in Spain at the time and probably getting on the plane to Dusseldorf.

If I was female and a players gf, I'd do it all time for a laugh.

Lots of interesting and conflicting stories flying around - most are quite good news for us though.

A quick summary:

- De Gea: He may or may not go and as of this morning he is apparently still very unsure if he should move to Madrid. Madrid have apparently set a deadline to decide so hopefully that passes before he decides. Nevertheless, if he were to move on it sounds as though we have a good chance of getting Cech.

- Right Back: A position that is a little up in the air, the Clyne deal is very much on/off. But Dani Alves apparently has 4 offers on the table and has turned down Barca's last contract offer. You would assume that one of the 4 offers is from us?
We could well end up with Alves which I think would be a great signing with his experience, ability on the ball and attacking credentials.

- Centre Back: A toss up between Otamendi and Hummels. I still think that Hummels will probably move but it depends how hard we push. Dortmund will be resilient and will want to keep Hummels given that Klopp and Gundogan will be going. Otamendi at the moment probably looks the more likely - a good combative player, may suit the EPL better than Hummels actually.

- Number 6: It is clear that we need competition for Carrick, could Schweinsteiger be that player? For under £10 million for a World Cup winner, Champions League winner etc is a bargain. 3 or 4 years too late but he could still do a great job for us. I'd love him to come in/

- Another Midfielder? Will we get 2?! I think we probably need to. A box to box midfielder with good energy that allows Hererra to be a bit higher up the pitch to get involved with the goals some more. Gundogan is looking less likely by the day, Nainggolan is a possibility but at 28 is he right? The ideal one would be Vidal but would he leave Juve? Would they let him in the year that they reach the CL final but lose Pirlo and Pogba? I think we would do well to get him.

- Wings: Yay, we have Depay and not Sterling! Thank god he went for us! Do we need one more? Well, it would be a luxury wouldn't it. If Bale is available though we can't very well turn him down - but is Perez willing to let his favourite go? I'm not so sure.

The way I see it, we will have had a very successful summer if we sign Alves arrive on a free, either Otamendi or Hummels, Schweinsteiger for under £10 million, try and get Vidal and then make a push for Bale - but I think Depay, Di Maria, Mata and Januzaj as well as Young are very good options to have. Oh, and Cech for De Gea if he does run to Madrid!

i would be delighted if it panned out that way

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2015 12:11:37
How great would our defense be if we could get in Hummels and Otemandi. left and right so balanced. Ball playing and combative so would work well together.
Lot of money to secure both but why scrimp in an Area we all say we are lacking!!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 12:18:34
I would love that fresh. It would not need a healthy budget also :)

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 15:43:40
It would be around a £100 million spend but we could expect nearly £30 million back with the same of Evans, Hernandez and Nani. And if worst came to worse we would buy a goalkeeper like Cech for much less than we sell De Gea.

It seems to be quite a healthy looking plan to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 16:10:15
This discussion is cool! My opinions:

GK: I prefer De Gea to stay, but, in case he goes. I would bring Bernd Leno. He's supposed to be the next big thing when it comes to goalkeeping. Cech is a little bit on the injury prone side, although I'm a fan.

RB: Alves problem is his age. When a fullback starts to decline, it usually goes down hard. It's not like other position, as I think the fullback position demands too much on the physical part. I would go for Dani Carvajal, as Real Madrid made a little mistake in buying Danilo.

CB: Latest reports saying that Hummels prefers to stay broke my heart! Although, he's a little bit on the injury prone side too. Otamendi was a beast this year and, although I don't like his age, he would be a step up, no doubts in my mind. And actually, I would not go for Aymeric, at least for now.

LB: If we have the money, I would actually go for a leftback. I like Shaw, but his injuries demands at least another leftback, and also, we should not haste his development as he's only 19/20 years old. My choice would be Ricardo Rodriguez.

MC: That position is interesting, as almost all the best box-to-box players in the world had serious injuries the past year: Vidal, Strootman, Pogba, Gundogan.
Aside maybe one, and it's Koke. I would actually go for him, although he's not as good as the others, but mught become.
Schweinsteiger problem is his age, and kinf of injury prone too. Nonetheless, awesome player.

Striker: that is one problematic position! I can't see many young, or even full fledge strikers that are worth the money! Rooney might still be our best possible option. If Falcao and van Persie go, I would try to sign Lacazette. although 35 million pounds is a bit much.

Sidenote: Ronaldo and Bale? No for both as their prices are too high! The first one, although the second best player in the world, is more than 30 years old, and the second is too injury prone to cost 85 million pounds!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 09:39:05
Ed do u see any interest in lacazett considering his current for and our own strikers age group? Earlier we mostly have young strikers who are ready. But doesn't look likely as Wilson is bit raw though highly rated. Any info in this??

{Ed001's Note - there is lots of interest but they are not looking to sell and he is happy to stay for another season at least.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 May 2015 11:14:35
Cheers ed. Quoted price mark is decent enough for 30 goal a season striker. Lynn always play hard ball. It had costed us benzema as Madrid entered frame in last moment and bought him.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 12:30:59
Lacazette won't leave France just as Lyon get back in the Champions League and with a Euro Championships just around the corner. He will want to guarantee his place in the French squad and first team football at Lyon will do this for him where as he could move to a bigger club and sit on the bench quite a bit which could see the likes of Giroud, Benzema or even Gignac picked ahead of him if he doesn't play much.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 18:18:01
Ed can you please tell me if United are still interested in Gundogan? Are Barca also interested?

{Ed004's Note - there is still interest in the player}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 May 2015 09:44:57
Thanks Ed - do you know if its true that Barca have conducted a medical and he wants to join them in January?

{Ed004's Note - What would be the point of a medical 6 months before a move?}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 03:46:44
Its really surprising to see Ashley Young not in the England squad but Jamie Vardy made it. Can anyone explain this :S?

{Ed025's Note - neither of them should be anywhere near an international squad wayne, young has done well this season but thats a false dawn imo..

Believable0 Unbelievable2

22 May 2015 08:35:21
I've got to agree with ED25. While he's had a a good season he isn't a top player and is very predictable with his crossing. When you look at the top clubs with their wingers Ashley wouldn't get anywhere near them.

Personally I'd sell him and Valenica this summer before they reach 30

Agree0 Disagree1

22 May 2015 09:09:51
So on your opinion players should be picked on reputation and not form then?

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2015 09:11:36
False dawn or not, I believe players are picked based on current form, and Young's current form is worth a call-up. Even if on the bench, back-up for either flank.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 May 2015 13:03:08
Well I think Young would have been in there but according to Hodgson he had a slight injury.

I think it's a tad bit unfair on Young there ed25, England aren't exactly a fanastic football team and I believe his form would have him included, now if he was spanish/french/italian so on and so forth, then yes he shouldn't be allowed near an international team.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 15:26:44
Young has been good all season, the amount of goals he's been involved in shows he's doing something right! He's got his confidence back and he can beat a player and get a cross in much more consistently now than any of our other wingers. He's better than Vardy, Milner and Townsend anyway that's for sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2015 16:36:53
On form it's a travesty that Young hasn't made the England squad. Is there anyone better for England wide left form-wise? I can't think of anyone.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 22:18:06
I heard an incredibly stupid rumour that Pep Guardiola was assessing the managerial status at Manchester United and Manchester City. I don't believe this because it would be stupid to get rid of Van Gaal now considering he has only had one season. I just wanted these rumours to be confirmed as false.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

22 May 2015 03:37:21
Think he's said in the past that he'd like to manage United in the future. I think what these rumours are hinting at is that he is looking at the possibility of taking over after Van Gaal, maybe not straight away. I think he knows that if he ever managed City, he'd unlikely be able to switch to United after.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 May 2015 16:29:30
Few reports coming out today that arsenal have signed Vidal.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

21 May 2015 17:03:29
No word of it on the Arsenal page.

Vidal would be great for him. Don't really believe it though.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 17:06:45
I think arsenal are probably in for schneiderlin who I happen to think would be a good fit for us

Agree1 Disagree1

21 May 2015 17:33:31
Hopefully they're like the "Depay to liverpoo" rumours and we end up with him

Agree3 Disagree1

22 May 2015 16:41:21
There doesn't seem to be any real sources for Vidal to Arsenal, just all the papers linking each other. Pinch of salt I reckon.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 14:07:46
Argentinian site reckons United has a deal for Otamendi's contract, probably still to sort the 50m euro transfer out.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 May 2015 13:54:21
Hey to whichever Ed is around, was just wondering if you were aware of anything new regarding Otamendi? Ed002 previously said there was interest but it would be difficult as he only recently moved to Valencia. I feel like the internet has gone crazy re. a move to us after one or two dubious reports, but it would be great if it was true!

{Ed001's Note - there is nothing new, not right now. It is just an assumption after the comments regarding Hummels coming out of Dortmund. All that was actually said is that Hummels is no longer looking to force a move, that he will be happy to stay if no deal is done. Personally I doubt Dortmund will do a deal, as they are going to be losing Klopp and Gundogan, so they will not want too much turnover. In that case, Otamendi is the next on the list and United have been watching him closely, so it would be likely that talks will begin the moment Valencia are ready.}

21 May 2015 14:32:21
Thanks ed, appreciate the info!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 15:19:47
was we the club that had a bid rejected in january for otamendi?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know to be honest.}

21 May 2015 13:37:05
Reports are saying Sterling is not on Manchester Uniteds radar

Gareth bale is not on Uniteds radar at the moment, although if madrid give any impression that they are willing to sell bale then United will do whatever it takes to get him to old Trafford

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 May 2015 14:09:48
I doubt we will go for Bale, he'll stick at Madrid another year I think.

We Have Depay, Januzaj, Di Maria, Young and Mata all for the wings, that's plenty in my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 May 2015 15:33:33
For me Mata is not an option on the wing far to slow and doesn't get behind the defence which is why we struggled to create chances. All out great team wer built with pace and power down both flanks and with Depay signing and talk of bake it stirling it look alike that's the way we are looking to go. mata needs to be playing Central where he can cause more problems with his passing and movement.

Agree5 Disagree0

21 May 2015 16:21:43
Sorry did u say mata doesn't get behind the defence he's scored majority of his goals by getting behind the defence he's not quick but he times his runs well!

Agree1 Disagree1

21 May 2015 21:45:14
I meant he doesn't go down the wing passed a player most of his time is spent drifting into a more central position. Can't remeber him going past someone to the byline. We are very one sided when it comes to crossing from deep positions only really happensdown youngs flank. Valencia rarely takes a man on either and when he does his cross is a hard low ball in. Valencias pace and strength with mata's technical ability would be a dream

Agree0 Disagree1

21 May 2015 09:11:40
Hi eds is Hummels really staying put?

{Ed001's Note - nothing is decided, Man Utd are trying to make a deal happen, Dortmund are trying to keep hold of him. It will no doubt drag on a bit this one, as he has not rejected United, just said he will wait and see what happens.}

Believable3 Unbelievable0

Hey eds/all,
Anybody know is there any update on the bale situation?balague and a few reports are saying he's going nowhere.just wondering is he still available by madrid or have things changed?also seems hummels is staying with strong reports of otamendi?thanks

{Ed001's Note - nobody wants to pay what they are asking right now, Madrid will wait and see what happens with FFP, as that might change everything.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 May 2015 10:15:21
Ed I know you guys don't like talking money but would you be able to confirm that real are looking for a world record leek deal for Bale?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what kind of money they are looking for, sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 11:56:08
No no no Ed, I think as Bale is Welsh they want to be paid in leek, the national vegetable. Wouldn't 1 leek be a world record leek deal?

{Ed001's Note - I seem to remember Carmarthen Town paying 20 leeks for their new striker....}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 16:54:34
How about Ronaldo? Unhappy once again. I think one of Bale or Ronaldo will be going this year - but which?

{Ed018's Note - Ronaldo won't be leaving}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2015 23:38:57
Apparently we have inquired about Sterling? Don't get it. if he goes to any of the heavy hitters in the league lfc certainly would't allow it to be Mufc. But then again surely United aren't just trolling,we are above that. Has his agent intimated that he would like the move if it was possible?

Believable1 Unbelievable4

21 May 2015 09:34:17
Maybe Liverpool are using United here to show defiance to their fans. We won't sell to United, making a sale to Arsenal/City more acceptable.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 May 2015 09:50:08
Well Ed1 has confirmed there was an enquiry. The way I see it is Sterling holds all the cards, if he decides he wants to go to X club his agent could tell X club and they in turn tell Liverpool either you sell him to us now or next year he buys out his contract (Not as basic as it sounds, search Webster ruling for more info) and comes to us with you getting little to no compensation. This is all very simplified of course but it puts Liverpool in a tough situation where Sterling can within reason call the shots and force a transfer to any club that offers Liverpool a reasonable sum for the lad.

My personal opinion however is that there is more chance of Anderson getting fit than there is that Sterling plays for MUFC next year.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 May 2015 10:10:53
An enquiry in private that became public somehow. Liverpool are playing games IMO and have every intention of selling - as they did with Suarez - knowing that the player wants out. It's about timing and price and placating their angry fans (and pundits!!)

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2015 16:55:22
I'd be gutted to pay over £40 million for Sterling. I don't usually care how much a player costs as long as he is the right one but Sterling is quite simply not worth anything over £20 million. Yes he has some tricks, and yes he is young but he still has such a long way to go - especially his finishing.

So pleased we have Memphis instead.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 May 2015 23:26:33
A couple of reports that we have possibly reached an agreement with Otamendi but still to reach agreement with Valencia. I think if there is any truth in this then we will also move for Garay (will be a rcb and an lcb). When Rojo plays it will mean besides Zabaleta we will have 3 of the starting 11 of the Argentina national team, not too shabby.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

20 May 2015 22:12:06
Michael Zorc announces Hummels has decided to stay at Dortmund. Press move straight on to Otamendi, amazing how unashamed the British Press are.

Believable2 Unbelievable2

21 May 2015 09:36:28
Has he said he'll stay or is it just him saying that he has held talks with the player and his agent about the future and it went well?

Hummels is happy to see out his contract if Dortmund don't want to sell him.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2015 08:33:59
I feel for you Ed, he really is crap. How he has lasted this long at United is astonishing. He'll fit right in at Everton though ;-)

{Ed025's Note - thanks for that brendan..he is one of the worst i have seen mate, but still ahead of rojo, mcnair and jones.. :)

Believable0 Unbelievable1

20 May 2015 19:29:50
That took forever to come through :-)

Jones has gone backwards hugely, McNair is only a kid so a bit unfair, Rojo will be a good squad player for us. I quite like Everton though, so I hope Sunderland stay up and buy him like they do most of our not good enough defenders :-)

{Ed025's Note - so do i brendan.. :)

18 May 2015 09:17:46
Morning Eds,

I see the newspapers are suggesting we are looking to do a deal for Felipe Anderson, do you know if there is any truth behind the reports?

{Ed007's Note - Atletico Madrid have approached Lazio about taking Filipe Anderson as a replacement for Arda Turan. Manchester City have a declared interest whilst many clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have had him watched recently. Lazio have offered him a new contract which he may well agree to.}

18 May 2015 11:02:35
Hi everyone, I have heard last night that United have made strong enquiries about GK Bernd Leno of Leverkusen. I haven't seen much of him have any of you guys?

Believable8 Unbelievable0

18 May 2015 19:50:30
Personally I would love him to come, genuine competition for Valdes from a young GK with a good amount of experience. It would give him a year or so to settle in and challenge Valdes then take the mantle over if he progresses as well as he has to date.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 May 2015 22:35:47
I see Valdes as a number two and no more. Krul, Begovic, Cech, Lloris and others will be looked at, but for me Lloris at a good price would be a good signing.

Agree0 Disagree4

18 May 2015 23:26:57
Syd krull is the worst keeper I have ever seen rather have mr blooby in goals

Agree8 Disagree0

17 May 2015 19:22:31
Well ed
I don't know if the bale rumours are true wouldn't mind seeing him at old Trafford though, But I think our main objective should be midfielders could you tell us which ones United have genuine interest in.

{Ed004's Note - Nainggolan has been looked at, so has Gundogan, I'd guess the club has looked at Pogba (though highly unlikely)}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

17 May 2015 21:19:16
Ed004, you think we are looking at potentially bringing 2 midfielders in this summer. Naingollan and gundagon being good examples of the 2 types we need.

{Ed004's Note - Not sure how many we want but I would be happy with that}

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2015 23:59:52
Vidal and gundogan

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2015 11:28:42
Reports from italy United have agreed deal for samir handanovic! Any truth in it eds?

I believe De Gea will join Real Madrids new wave of galacticos, unfortunately for us! For anybody that's interested, some paper reports they'll be making bids for pogba, veratti and reus as well! As I said, the new "wave".

That summer they signed Ronaldo, kaka, benzema and alonso was unparalleled.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think the reports of Handanovic are true but I think De Gea will leave}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

17 May 2015 13:16:54
What's your take then ED on who will be our No.1 should De Gea leave?

{Ed004's Note - I would probably go Valdes and sign or promote a number 2 with potential. I don't follow enough goalkeepers to know who we should sign. Maybe Cech if Chelsea would sell him to us. Otherwise invest the money on outfield players. We could have a decent amount of incomings on transfers this season. Potential De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Nani, Hernandez, RVP and possibly Young/Fellaini. Hoping Di Maria stays tbh.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2015 13:34:17
I wouldn't mind Handanovic but I would move heaven and earth to sign Cech. No way will Mourinho let Arsenal have him, do we have a chance? We got Mata after all.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 May 2015 13:56:15
They'd probs rather sell to Liverpool than us or Arsenal to be fair

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2015 14:48:47
Would no one fancy a little punt on Kasper schmeical (spelling)

Agree1 Disagree1

17 May 2015 15:37:18
Lloris - Cech - Begovic

In that order.

Agree5 Disagree6

17 May 2015 17:57:01
I agree Sid if we were to sign another goalkeeper but I've said it before, Valdes was signed for the day Big Dave was sold.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2015 17:57:22
Thanks to ed by the way for your opinion!!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2015 18:06:59
Mourinho would no way sell to Arsenal and Cech would have no interest in a team outside the CL so that is Liverpool out the question and Man City who don't need a keeper. If he stays in England then we are the best bet, but he could just as easily move abroad. I do expect us to make an enquiry though at least.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2015 18:56:20
Ed is valdes good enough to be our number1 next season,I don't think he is,there was a lot of question marks about his last few seasons in barca,he comes off his line when he is supposed to stay and has let a lot of goals in on that alone,I think if ddg goes we have to go and get a top keeper.

{Ed004's Note - I'm not sure. I think he will be our new number 1 but I would like a replacement for De Gea. However, I can't think of one?!}

Agree2 Disagree0

17 May 2015 19:19:10
We should go for Lloris!! Still only 28 so would have a fair few years of him in his prime. He's way to good a keeper to not be playing champs league.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 May 2015 20:26:10
Hey guys. Long term reader 1st time poster, (please be gentle) De Gea will be a great loss. Handanovic looks a great keeper but paries instead of catching. A young keeper that could learn from Valdes experience is Simone Scuffet. He looks a very talented young lad. Also haven't we bought a young eastern European keeper? Sorry can't remember his nam.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 May 2015 21:53:55
His replacement must be Leno

Agree1 Disagree0

18 May 2015 09:13:03
I don't particularly believe we need a young goal keeper. Just someone to fill the gap for a few years until vanja milinkovic-savic (who looks a great talent) is ready to step uo
