Ed with us looking increasingly likely to nail a Champions League spot is there any new developments with potential incomings or is your update from a few weeks back the most recent info you are aware of?

{Ed002's Note - Much of this will change by the summer and there are major dependencies on (a) players leaving (b) if there is a change of manager, and (c) Champions League qualification. However, there is known to be (or have recently been) some level of interest in the following players:

GK: If De Gea goes perhaps Krul or Handanovic will be added. Romero was looked at but as an alternative to Valdes, so unlikely.

RB: Coleman would be expensive and remains "not for sale". Perhaps Clyne would be a better option. Alves is negotiating with PSG. Danilo of Porto has been looked at but is heading elsewhere. Darmain was looked at but there is no interest right now.

CB: It seems likely that Manchester United are looking for two centre backs. Mats Hummels remains the primary target, if available. The summer is certainly realistic, particularly given the Champions League situation and Dortmund are looking at a possible replacement. Godin may well alo be a serious target for the summer. Garay could certainly be an option for the summer - he will be leaving Zenit. Alternatively, 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 remains of interest to both Manchester clubs and Southampton. Tyrone Mings has been looked at but remains one for the future and with Rojo and Shaw at the club 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. There has been interest in Dragovic but if he forces a move from Dinamo Kiev I suspect he will end up elsewhere. Marquinhos won't happen as he has signed a new contract.

DM: Vidal is due to be sold in the summer and I suspect there is still interest. Nainggolan might, if his complex ownership can be completely resolved, be an option (and the ownership issues are far clearer than they were). Strootman has been injured for a while and whilst he remains a target there may be too much of a risk with his injury issues to make a move for him. 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. De Jong may be considered as an alternative.

M: Gundogan can almost certainly removed from the list of players moving to Manchester United this year but the club has shown interest. Pogba will be outrageously expensive and there is strong interest from elsewhere. Pjanic was a Moyes target and I suspect interest has gone. Transfer fee and wages are very high. Khedira has been of interest but a move seems unlikely. Matuidi is a player the club has considered but he has no interest in leaving PSG. Interest in Viktor Fischer will have gone completely.

W/AM: Whilst Depay is not seen to be ready for the EPL at this time, by someone very respected within the game, I suspect Manchester United will be able to complete the signing in the summer. Douglas Costa has been of sustained interest to Manchester United but I suspect he is heading elsewhere. A tentative enquiry was made Wolfsburg's Kevin de Bruyne but it I think it very unlikely that a move will be possible this summer. Pedro will leave Barcelona this summer as they start raising funds for rebuilding from January 2016 - it is not out of the question that the club could rekindle previous interest, but I think a move is unlikely. The club has now been approached about Arda Turan and there may be interest.}

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 move beforehand - if he does I don't think it will be to Manchester. Do not be surprised by a bid for Benzema. Cavani is being offered around the clubs who have previously shown an interest. Surprisingly, rumours of Manchester United and Manchester City interest in Danny Ings are true. Kenedy remains of interest and if a deal can be done he would likely go on loan. Interest in Bakkali has gone completely. Mandzukic will be sold this summer as Atletico look to fund a bid for Cavani. Manchester City see Mandzukic as a replacement for Dzeko and it is a solution that suits all. "Apparently" (an agent's "apparently"), Manchester United and Arsenal remain interested. Maybe not.}

Just wanted to say thank you for that update. Love to read them :)

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2015 13:45:26
Ed002 you said earlier in the month that Hummels remains the primary target for the CB postion if available but I've read a few pieces from who I would call decent journalists and they claim it is in fact Otamendi who is the preferred candidate at the moment.

Any idea if that's true?

{Ed002's Note - Whatever you want.}

Believable3 Unbelievable3

26 Mar 2015 14:34:15
i'd take otamendi all day over hummels. absolute beast of a defender and would mix well with the current argies in the squad. him and rojo would be a lethal partnership

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2015 19:49:55
We should go for garay also if possible and only be zabaleta short of the Argentina back 4.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2015 16:15:08
Eds, Do we have any interest in the young striker Diego Rolan? Plays in France? Uraguayan lad?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Graham hunter saying the city players belive a successfull bid for ronaldo is on the cards,

Any of the eds have any info regarding interest in ronaldo and if anyone has made any approch to madrid in regards to a possible transfer

{Ed001's Note - either someone is on a wind up or they are looking to get the betting market going. There are issues there but nothing is done, Madrid are looking to sell to raise transfer funds but there is not even close to a done deal there.}

I would like to think that he wouldn't go to City, if he leaves he will come to us or he will stay at RM until a move to the MLS calls.

24 Mar 2015 14:25:09
LOL

I am with Ed. What a joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2015 19:37:00
Eds,
Nedved has been quoted by tabloids saying that Juve received a bid for Pogba. Could you clarify what club bid for him? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - PSG.}

Believable3 Unbelievable0

22 Mar 2015 09:47:11
Good morning. Now I know you don't take much notice of tabloids but this mornings rumours seem particularly strange. Firstly, Di Maria wants out as he doesn't want to 'prove himself' under LVG. Secondly, De Gea is refusing to sign a new contract and his value is going down as he only has 18 months to go until he can leave on a 'free'. Any views Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Manchester United looking to sell Di Maria at this time nor of Jorge Mendes looking for interest from any other club. I would ignore anything about the value of De Gea or "running down his contract". I have explained that there is interest in him and he might leave - hence the club enquiring about the availability of other goalkeepers. I expect he will want to see what options he has and then make a decision.}

Thanks (as usual) Ed002. Your insight is invaluable.

Not really united related but I can't stop laughing after reading this
"Manchester City are hopeful of luring Jack Wilshere to the Etihad Stadium and help the Arsenal midfielder rejuvenate his career."
Like they did with Roswell, Sinclair.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

22 Mar 2015 12:15:31
Did you know Roswell never actually played football. It's just a conspiracy theory that he did.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Mar 2015 05:35:17
Not untied related but I would like to say a very big kudos to Ed002. The daily tabloids are now printing that Atletico Madrid are targeting Cavani this summer a story which Ed002 told us about last month!

I don't know who you are or how you get your information bro but I bow to your knowledge Ed002!

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. Post of the day.}

Believable3 Unbelievable1

21 Mar 2015 11:07:52
Ed with you saying that PSG may be willing to sacrifice players in order to generate funds such as Marquinos, Matuidi, Cavani etc. Would Lucas Moura be avaialble at the right price?

{Ed002's Note - Probably, because at the "right price" most players can be available, but MU have no interest in any case.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Mar 2015 13:21:04
JMB I think Depay would be better value for money both in terms of wages and transfer fee in that winger/support striker role.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Mar 2015 08:11:46
Hey Ed002, I know you said we have interest but just wondering where do you think ings might end up?is he still most likely to end up at liverpool?Is there anything in the otamendi and laporte rumours from yesterday?thanks as always

{Ed002's Note - My expectation was that Ings would move to Liverpool. I have no idea about any "rumours", I don't read Twitter or any newspapers that would contain such things.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Mar 2015 19:27:16
Ed, I take it you are no longer as confident in your expectation that Ings is off to Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - No, I have explained that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2015 06:28:44
Hi ed

Is thiago alacantara subject of any interest?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - No and there almost certainly won't be this summer.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Mar 2015 11:18:54
I believe we were interested in him under SAF but we signed Mata under Moyes so chances of Thiago are less.

{Ed002's Note - He has been injured for a year.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2015 12:09:44
Edd's. Have we shown any interest in aleksander mitrovic, young tall strong Serbian CF?

{Ed002's Note - There is a lot of interest but none from MU.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

19 Mar 2015 11:09:44
Good Morning Ed002

A quick question for you if i may I was wondering whether the targets you have let us know about for the summer window are being targeted by the club or LvG i know this is probably a silly question but again i was wondering if all our targets could potentially change if LvG is replaced in the summer

Thanks in advance

{Ed002's Note - To some extent it will be a mixture. As I said at the start of the post, there will always be dependencies and I cited (a) players leaving (b) if there is a change of manager, and (c) Champions League qualification.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

19 Mar 2015 19:31:17
Thanks Ed

18 Mar 2015 22:29:02
Hi Eds, is there any interest in Lazio's Felipe Anderson? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002'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.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

18 Mar 2015 21:13:52
Hi Edds if your about could you let us know is there any truth to united wanting to sign roberto firmino after his agent was spotted next to uniteds scouts cheers

{Ed002's Note - Firmino will very likely move from Hoffenheim in the summer with Barcelona (who would delay a move until January) Arsenal, Dortmund, Zenit and Schalke probably all interested. Manchester United have looked at him again. Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Shakhtar and Inter have dropped their previous interest. I am aware that Everton, Dynamo Kiev and Liverpool looked at Firmino last season but did not declare any interest with his agent. Roberto Firmino was previously subject of a rejected bid from Southampton.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 Mar 2015 11:42:52
Just wondering if we have/are showing any interest in Daryll Janmaat of Newcastle ED?

He was a favourite of LVG at the World Cup and has gave a decent account for himself at the Toon.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 Mar 2015 10:49:14
Ed002 if you are around, with the likelihood of de gea leaving this summer, do you think its possible united will try use it as leverage in an attempt to sign bale?the thought of losing mata and de gea this summer is sickening. i'm not really looking forward to this summer. thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I would not be certain that both, or indeed either, will leave. Valencia have said they would want Mata back if he became available, but others may well also be interested. Also, I would not necessarily tie any transfer of Bale and De Gea together. The price Real Madrid are looking to achieve for Bale is extremely high and I am by no means sure there is any interest in him from Manchester United at this time. Even though it is common for clubs to discuss players as part of transfer deals, it fails to materialise in many cases. If for no other reason than perhaps a club does not want the other player, or perhaps the player is not keen. Long gone are the days where a player would be sold to a club without being involved in agreeing the move. So it is all possible but we will need to wait to see what happens.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

19 Mar 2015 10:42:46
Mata for Otamendi?
The players swaps rarely happen and I can't seem to remember when united had one except for us loaning players like Campbell, Nani, etc as part of deals

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Mar 2015 09:55:50
Morning all
eds- any truth to the valencia/mata rumours? Seems a bit crazy blowing £17m after so little time and with the possibility of 4th place he is at the very least an excellent squad player imo.
cheers

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what rumours you are referring to, but Valencia have made no secret of the fact that they would like to take Mata back one day.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

17 Mar 2015 13:08:05
Ed are we interested in Schneiderlin?

With Pogba extremely expensive, Vidal saying he won't leave and Strootman's injury concerns I think Schneiderlin could be a very good midfield target for us.

Knows the league and won't cost as much as the other 3 I mentioned above.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

17 Mar 2015 16:36:07
Kondogbia for me

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2015 19:02:43
Edd's, is it true we are interested in karim bellerabi from Leverkusen?

{Ed002's Note - Eintracht Braunschweig failed to make Bayer Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi's loan permanent in the summer amidst interest from both Hamburg and Hoffenheim. Interest from Stuttgart seems to have gone although both Chelsea and West Ham have had the player scouted this season - Chelsea as a replacement for Schurrle but they have another solution in hand. However, any move this summer is most unlikely as he has signed a new long-term contract with Leverkusen.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Mar 2015 10:44:59
Is there a chance Gareth Bale will leave Real Madrid in the summer and are united still interested in him?

Believable1 Unbelievable7

15 Mar 2015 10:07:51
is it true united scouts have been watching Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have had folks watching Mat Hummels as he returns to full fitness. There are clubs that still maintain an interest in Aubameyang but they do no, as far as I know, include Manchester United.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

15 Mar 2015 13:45:47
ok cheers for the info ed :)

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2015 09:38:46
Ed002 just a quick question regarding your in depth transfer summary.

There was no mention of Aymeric Laporte who we were linked with in January. Has this interest now gone?

Also with Schweinstiger still not penned a new contract yet is it possible he may leave for a big payday given he is now in his 30's?

{Ed002's Note - (a) What interest? Try the search engine. (b) I don't know what you mean "big pay day". Schweinsteiger is already eking out a reasonable living.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Mar 2015 10:50:13
I thought that there was interest in Laporte too.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2015 12:37:54
Sorry ED I have just seen that you have stated you expect Laporte to go to Barca after thier ban and that Madrid are waiting in the wings if Varane leaves.

My bad, should check before I post!

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2015 18:16:37
Hi Ed's. Thanks for the update Ed002. Palermo's president has said that they have received a €40 million offer for dybala. He's keeping tight lipped on who it is from. Any idea on who it is from? Could it even be an offer from us? I remember reading a similar story a few weeks back about a declined offer, could just be the same story regurgitated?

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Manchester United. The offer has not been accepted but it is enough to perhaps facilitate some discussions - which is what the interested club are looking to do.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Mar 2015 10:05:59
Ed002 - you said to remind you on Friday about posting an updated detailed version of a summary of Man United's potential recruiting this summer. Well it's Friday!

If you have time to do it mate I would also be keen to hear what your choices out of all the players available would be.

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Much of this will change by the summer and there are major dependencies on (a) players leaving (b) if there is a change of manager, and (c) Champions League qualification. However, there is known to be (or have recently been) some level of interest in the following players:

There has been interest in Dragovic but if he forces a move from Dinamo Kiev I suspect he will end up elsewhere. PSG had no intention of selling Marquinhos but he may well be sacrificed in the summer to raise transfer funds. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea are are very interested in the player.

DM: Vidal is due to be sold in the summer and I suspect there is still interest. Nainggolan might, if his complex ownership can be resolved, be an option. Strootman has been injured for a while and whilst he remains a target there may be too much of a risk with his injury issues to make a move for him. 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.

M: Gundogan is refusing to agree a new deal and is seen as a shadow of his former (pre-injury) self - could be a dumb move but he will be available and Manchester United are interested.

Pedro will leave Barcelona this summer as they start raising funds for rebuilding from January 2016 - it is not out of the question that the club could rekindle previous interest, but I think a move is unlikely. The club will be approached about Arda Turan but I do not know if the club will be interested at all.}

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 - if he does I don't think it will be to Manchester. Do not be surprised by a bid for Benzema. Cavani is being offered around the clubs who have previously shown an interest. Surprisingly, rumours of Manchester United and Manchester City interest in Danny Ings are true. Kenedy remains of interest and if a deal can be done he would likely go on loan. Interest in Bakkali has gone completely. Mandzukic will be sold this summer as Atletico look to fund a bid for Cavani. Manchester City see Mandzukic as a replacement for Dzeko and it is a solution that suits all. "Apparently" (an agent's "apparently"), Manchester United and Arsenal remain interested. Maybe not.}

Very well summarised.

Thanks mate.

Gundogan, Vidal, Garay and Depay with maybe a forward coming in too would be decent. All should be getable for a reasonable cost.

Thanks for that summary Ed002, interesting stuff.
