Reports are saying we are 'seriously' losing the race for Depay? Surely this cannot be true? I mean we could offer the best deal in the prem? And with LVG his supposed 'father' figure, it just doesn't add up? This hasn't got anything to do with agent fees has it? because I know we are a tad stingy on that front?

I wouldn't be too concerned about reports. Most reports suggest that he will leave PSV and that he favours us over Liverpool.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Apr 2015 12:07:59
He denied the reports himself because lvg doesn't discuss transfer targets or buisness with the media

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Apr 2015 21:04:15
If reports are to be believed we have asked PSV to keep us informed of Depay's situation. It would be a guess but if we felt there was a chance of getting Bale then it would explain that position. We wouldn't want to commit to buying Depay whilst there was a chance of buying Bale. That would probably give clubs who put Depay at the top of their list an advantage

Ed02, would you be able to give us an update on what's happening with Gundogan please? There were numerous stories saying a deal was pretty much done and now it's gone quiet, with Zorc stating that they've had no contact with us.

Are we trying to sort out a deal with the player / club and do you expect us to sign him?

{Ed002's Note - I will make sure posts get through but I am not providing any information to the MU page any longer.}

Don't let a sore lot ruin it for everyone who uses this site for your information alone, as i'm pretty certain without yourself this site would be knowhere near where it is(no offence to any of the other ed's, as much as we love you too, but i'm sure yous would agree too!)

A lot of people respect you, some people don't, but they are meaningless trolls, who do nothing but cause problems for others.

Ps. Except maybe 007, sometimes the buckfast gets to his head and he starts spouting Celtic nonsense :/

Was this rumour from a Chelsea fan? We have supposedly been his first choice as far as all the rumours I've seen in the papers go.

26 Apr 2015 20:26:38
no its from a mate whose also a united fan and works with lads who play footy with bales supposed best mates(sounds far fetched but is actually true). These are the mates that were reported by the media to have gone out with bale but was totally untrue. i replied saying no don't believe it he coming to us this summer ;) so remains to be seen. Just passing on what i heard.

That would be very disappointing. Bale is made for united IMO.

25 Apr 2015 12:07:20
ED002 I have seen you have previously said United have monitored Gabriel Barbosa from Santos but Barca have first option on him. You also said if Barca can raise funds then Dybala will wait for a move to Catalonia.

With both players effectively playing the same role and both being very expensive, if Dybala heads to the Noucamp would that leave Barbosa for other intrested parties such as United?

{Ed002's Note - Gabriel is of interest to Fiorentina, Chelsea and Manchester United. However, although much is expected of him he is only 18 and whilst there is an agreement between Santos and Barcelona that may be exercised in 2016, I suspect that he won't move there at that time. Chelsea will try and continue to strike a deal - but it may be a while away.

Dybala's situation is very different and you should not confuse the two. Barcelona's rebuilding does require them to move a number of players on and they have the further difficulty that they cannot make any incoming transfers before January 2016. As such, they are going to try and do a little horse trading this summer, like loaning a player to a club for 6 months and then he becomes part of a deal for someone else in January with cash or whatever passing hands then. In the interim, Palermo are aware of interest in the player and have already turned down three offers - two in cash and one including two players.

So there is no dependency between the two players - and I rather doubt Gabriel will end up in Manchester, unless it is in the away dressing room.}

Ed002, is there any truth to sky's report that manchester united are close to agreeing a deal for gundogan?

Strong rumours coming out of Germany from Sky Germany and Der Westen that a deal has been agreed for Gundogan to United.

Any truth or just media jumping the gun again?

And according to Jim White Benatia was supposed to join us last summer.

But anyway. Perhaps he could tell Hummels or Subotic to join him!

Add hummels, Vidal, Depay and Clyne and we're sorted for next season.

24 Apr 2015 13:59:23
Ed is it true that Schweinsteiger is likely to be sold in the summer?

I am a huge fan of Schweini and wouldn't mind seeing him here. He is a winner with a fantastic attitude.

I agree that he will turn 31 and we have better younger alternatives but this guy is class. Having said that I would not take him ahead of a Vidal or Gundogan but he is available for under 10mil then he is worth a shout.

{Ed002's Note - It is possible that Bayern Munich will listen to offers for Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer with interest being shown by New York Red Bulls and Atletico Madrid.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Apr 2015 15:57:48
4 or 5 years to late IMO but he is a player I always wanted UTD to sign. Absolute class player.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Apr 2015 12:25:50
Are We interested in ozan tufan? DM? Or can play RB?

{Ed002's Note - Bursaspor's defensive midfield player Ozan Tufan has been attracting the interest of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Atletico Madrid. A few months ago his father was been keen to point out that "other big European teams have sent scouts to watch Ozan play - AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, City and United." I would not read too much in to that for now.}

Any interest in yarmelenko, from us or anyone else?

{Ed002's Note - Dynamo Kyiv accept that Yarmolenko will likely move this summer with strong interest from Fiorentina, Inter, Valencia, Napoli and Dortmund. Bayer Leverkusen and Manchester City have dropped their interest but PSG are considering Yarmolenko as a possible option to replace Lavezzi this summer and it is possible that Spurs will look to him again.}

ED do you know if United are interested in Schneiderlin?

So far I have only read Arsenal related rumours.

To be honest I would go for Schneiderlin over Gundogan.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will look to Southampton's Schneiderlin this summer and I suspect a deal can be done "at the right price". It has been suggested that Spurs may also look to him but interest from Napoli has gone.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

22 Apr 2015 18:11:23
Apparently LvG sees Gundogan as a long term replacement for Carrick.

Hi Ed's

Any truth that MU are interested in Joao Cancelo?


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea spoke with Benfica about Cancelo in January 2014 but nothingcame of it. I am aware that Valencia, Manchester City, Real Madrid, West Ham and Liverpool all took a look at him las season and Valencia remain interested.}

Ed002, am I right in assuming that you are referring to Manchester United and Juventus when you say "neither interested club". ?


{Ed002's Note - Right.}

22 Apr 2015 10:44:52
What's the situation with Gundogan at the moment Ed? You mentioned he was signing a new contract a few weeks ago but hasn't - is being linked with a few different clubs again. Do we have any interest?

{Ed002's Note - Gundogan was refusing to agree a new deal and Dortmund were willing to let him leave as he was seen as a shadow of his former (pre-injury) self. A couple of clubs were interested, including Manchester United, but a recent approach about his availability was responded to that a three year extension has been agreed between the club and player and details are being finalised. However, he again seems to be stalling on that and both Manchester United and Arsenal have rekindled their interest.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 11:59:37
Is he a shadow of his former self or has he recovered now he has got fit again?

{Ed002's Note - Some good games and some poor.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 12:32:00
That is a really interesting update Ed002. Thanks.


This was Gundogan's season back from long term injury and I think it is expected in such situations that the player may not hit top form. We have seen how it has affected Falcao.

Gundogan has played well in some games and I am sure that our and Arsenal's interest means we don't have concerns over his injury or his form.

With a proper pre season if he can get back to his previous best next season, he could prove to be a very shrewd signing, especially since he will come cheap due to his contract situation. He is a very mobile player with a good passing range and also has good tactical awareness. He has something we lack, the box to box qualities and driving through midfield by taking players on and beating them.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 09:44:14
Griezmann mentioned today ( in telegraph I think) a top player who I'm sure we would be interested in should he be made available. Is there any interest from us or elsewhere?

{Ed002's Note - Griezmann only moved last summer, and Atletico has no intention of selling. Arsenal and Chelsea and Manchester United previously looked at the player (when he was at Real Sociedad). Whilst Griezmann has said on a number of occasions that he has no plans to leave Spain anytime soon, both PSG and Bayern Munich would be very interested if he became available.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

He said his name is pronounced the spanish way? he dreams in spanish? and talks to his dog in spanish. Something tells me he won't be leaving Atletico anytime soon.

Just wondering if Utd have shown any interest in Khedira, considering he's available on a free transfer? Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - Not really.

Real Madrid are looking much less likely to offer a new deal to Khedira now that Silva has arrived. He is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any side outside of Spain now and AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Arsenal and Schalke 04 sre all interest. Each of these clubs has spoken with thge representatives of the player. The player's representatives have also approached Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich to guage interest as Khedira is keen to play in the Champions League next season. Chelsea and Arsenal are both concerned about the player's on going fitness. At the end of the day, if he can prove his fitness, Liverpool or Schalke would likely be the best fit for him.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

21 Apr 2015 21:45:10
Ed did we actually bid for him on deadline day a few years ago or was it all speculation? Seems odd Madrid would turn that down to let him go a few years later on a free

Afternoon ed's. A couple of rumours in the last couple of days. Albeit slightly suspect publications but a couple say that we have made a formal approach to bayern for lewandowski. And a couple of others saying we are looking at Jackson Martinez too. Remember reading somewhere regarding martinez that an agent or someone else frim Porto suggested martinez would be moving this summer. I've tried searching but couldn't find much on these 2 and can't remember them being in ed002's overall update.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any bid from MU for Lewandowski and it makes little sense as he is not looking to move. Porto are prepared to cash in on Jackson Martinez with varying degrees of recent interest from Valencia, Inter, Arsenal, Roma, Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Juventus. However, whilst Porto will seek his full release clause of 40M euro but would likely need to settle for less (€36M for want of a number). Two bids from Juventus were turned down and Milan baulked at the asking price. This has left Valencia who are looking to make improvements again this summer, Napoli who have spoken with Porto and the player and have "broadly" struck a deal twice - but have struggled to get the detail finalised - and Arsenal who would need to match the Napoli deal. Spurs and Roma are still a possibility but the price will not be attractive. Atletico and Juventus have certainly moved on. His agent has sounded out Manchester United to see if they are interested.}

For me we need a big, powerful forward at the club. Look at the influence Fellaini has had. I'd be happy with any of Lewandowski, Martinez or Cavani.

Also apologies for my drunken rant at you the other day. About a week ago and probably too insignificant for you to know which post. I can't Remember exactly what was in it but I know it wasn't very affectionate. Quite rightly the post didn't see the light of day.

Colleague of mine from milan mentioned Inter supporters expecting bid for Rafael if the club can't strike a deal for bacary sagna!

I think inter would be a good move for Rafael, shame it hasn't worked out, mostly due to his injury record, no doubt the lad has talent.

Hi Eds

Its been reported that Utd are tracking Eduardo Sasha and Rodrigo Dourado from Internacional

Any substance?

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea but it would be strange - Rodrigo Dourado would stand pretty much no chance of getting a work permit and it would be an unlikely deal. There is nothing noteworthy about him as a player. Eduardo Sasha is a player another premier league side were watching about three years ago - he has an unusual ownership situation. There is an interesting story about Vitoria de Guimaraes being told by ESG last summer that he could be available for some ridiculous fee - I don't recall the number now.

I can think of another player from Internacional that is sitting in the reserves that Manchester United could be interested in, but these guys do not look likely to me.}
