Hi ed
Please can I ask your view on the Rvp reports. Are we seriously considering selling? For me is think he is poor and I can't see him improving but not sure who can replace him because James wilson isn't good enough.

steermaria

Ed02{Ed002's Note - At the end of the season I would not be surprised to see him leave.}

Are you on a wind up? James Wilson is one of the best 18 year old strikers in the world. Are you really a United fan because you from previous posts you sound like as scouser on a wind up.

SteerMaria, are u saying Wilson isn't good enough yet or isn't good enough. He is class and will be a Utd great, has speed, runs with the ball and a natural goal scorer. He did more in 10mins y'day then RVP has in his last two games.

Prodigal 7, don't make me laugh!!! captain marvel, I mean yet, like this season ready to play every game. I agree he will be class just think we need someone more proven once rvp leaves. Especially if falcoa doesn't stay

Evening Ed!

Quick question regarding our centre back options. I have a sneaky feeling we might be interested in Jan Vertonghan (provided the price etc are reasonable), do you know of any interest? Also, if we do sign a defender (thats a big IF) would we also be losing a defender e.g sold or loaned out? Far too many four senior centrebacks, with two in the wings.

Thanks

Pabawan Jnr

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Apparently someone in the English "press" has suggested Jan Vertonghen is of interest to Manchester United. I am not aware of any such interest, but Manchester United will look to bring in a centre back in January. I am not aware of any leaving on sale or loan.}

Thanks ed! You must tire of all these questions when transfer season starts! Great player when fit. Strong, solid on the ball, good talker and experienced. Price would be a sticking point IMO. Would easy cost upwards of £15m

Pabawan Jnr

Personally I would hope that Verthongen, Shawcross or Vlaar are not targeted as I don't think that they are good enough for us. We do need someone though, that is clear.

Fresh, who would you target? I know Ed and LVG have both said that only longterm tatgets will be bought if available in jan. These would be Hummels, Kongolo and Rudiger. Jan V IMO, Has the experience and is the right age to play with rojo or a youngster. If he became availble for a decent fee (£15-18m) i wouldn't be surprised if we went for him. Hummels is injury prone, just as much as Jan V. But would be a lot more expensive and harder to attain. Personally, Fabian Schaar or joel veltman would be astute buys.

Ed, where do you think Reus future lies? With Barca's transfer embargo I doubt it will be there and Bayern doesn't seem too likely to me - especially after the comments of Ribery. I would love to see him on opposite wings to Di Maria.

Fresh!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Arsenal showed an interest in Marco Reus before his return to Dortmund. Tentative approaches made last summer by Chelsea and Manchester City resulted in a "not for sale" response. The player was set on a move to Barcelona but that fell apart when they moved for Suarez. Right now Dortmund would like either a new contract to be signed or to sell him abroad (Real Madrid) to avoid Bayern Munich exercising an option in respect of a release clause to give the opportunity for the player to make a move in the summer.}

Ed (s), more rumours today of a Shakiri / herrera swap and 6 milion coming our way. Is there anything to it? Seems so soon after herrera has joined (who I think has done well imo), swaps rarely happen but the fact they've now started specifying a value in money changing hands juSt seems like there is some substance to it. Have you heard anything? Is herrera not wanted/not settled?

Ed, do you have any info for us on Shaqiri? Apparently he had offers from Liverpool and ourselves in the summer and now wants a January move that will be around the £18 million mark. Would be a great addition to the squad to have on the right hand side to rotate with Januzaj.

Fresh!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool's interest was long before this summer and I am certainly not aware of any bid from Manchester United this summer. He is available for €20M or so if MU want to make an offer. Right now I would not hold your breath.}

Talk today of a cut price move for Fabian Schar in January as he is out of contract in the summer. Would this be a sensible move? I would say yes, especially for the price and the unlikelihood that we will get a Hummels in January. Also talk of Talisca from SL Benfica, scored 9 in his last 10 and is likened to Rivaldo.

Fresh!

( 1 )
( 4 )

Schar has been talked about positively for a few years now and certainly has CL experience. My only concern (not having seen that much of him) is why he has not been picked up before.I imagine price wise it has always been reasonable.
Will be interesting to see who becomes available once the CL group games come to completion with players no longer in that. Could change who we can get.

Brad76

I think at 22 and in a long term deal he probably hasn't had that many options to move on. And fair play to him for sticking around and learning his trade.

My personal opinion is that he can't be any worse than what we already have and will be a cheap, low risk deal! Correct me if I am wrong but is he not a right sided centre half too?

Fresh!

( 1 )
( 0 )

Would not be a bad option especially at 10m. Could be the answer to the right hand side. Now if we could get Howedes in to the left side as as well that would give us a senior player, experience and youth at the back with an additional leader.
Allow for Blackett/Mcnair to challenge, Rojo to challenge for either centre or Left back. get rid of Smalling/Evans and we could have a productive January!!

KingGiggsy

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I am really not aware of most rumours. I am aware that AdM has spoken of his move from Real Madrid and the interest of Paris Saint-Germain. I would think perhaps someone has misunderstood something. I would not worry about it in the short term.}

Evening Ed!
Just wondered if we have any interest in Martin Hinteregger? Was he a moyes target? Lots of talk about him last season that came to nothing!
Eder Balanta, is he due to move sometime soon? Looks an outstanding prospect.
Keep up the good work!!

Pabawan Jnr

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Hinteregger was a player Moyes looked at. River Plate's Balanta is of serious interest to Juventus, Real Madrid, Galatrasaray and AC Milan. Napoli and Caniggia for Liverpool had shown interest when he was younger. He would need a lot of work before being ready to play at the highest level in Europe.}

( 3 )
( 4 )

Thanks for the swift response! I know it's a big gamble, but i'd love to see a prem team take a gamble on either of them. Balanta could be a future star IMO. But then again, i thought Jetro williams was going to be a star ha

Pabawan Jnr

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There is certainly EPL interest in Hinteregger but not MU. Much is expected of Balanta but he is not ready at this time.}

Ed002,

With a month and a half left for January its clear we need central defenders. You have told us about Hummels, and updated on Shawcross and Pique, but apart from them is there anyone else we are looking at who could be possible in January?

Is Howedes available?

He's young though and we already have good young defenders ie blackett mohair. Doubt he is much better. Varane proven and we need proven. Hummels ideal but he won't come! I don't think the best defenders want to come to us at the minute

Theres a story in the express today saying utd will go head to head with chelski for raphael varane.

And what is peoples opinion if we were to get him? I for one think he would be a great signing, but would still want a more experienced cb brought in as well.

Hi Ed's

Whats your take on Pique being dropped again by Barca, do you think he will be available for transfer and if he was would MU be interested?

Thanks

ne99il

Ed01{Ed001's Note - he has been having a few issues, the club have lost faith in him, the fans and media have turned on him and he is not playing well. There is every chance he would be allowed to leave, if they can replace him. If the embargo stays, then it is highly unlikely anyone will leave before the summer at the very least. They would like to move him on though right now.}

( 3 )
( 6 )

Wouldn't mind seeing Pique return: at the right price of course. Maybe a change of Club might see his form return. At 27 he's still young enough to have long term value, whilst having more big game experience than our back line put together. Furthermore speaking both Spanish and English would undoubtedly improve the communication at the back, which I believe is the major problem at the moment!

What do people make of the rumours united are having second thoughts on the falcao deal.
I would be a bit gutted to be honest i do wonder if the truth of it is we are going for 1 main striker and that's rvp

I think it's just journalists being stupid again to be honest. I hope so anyway, for me falcao is the best striker in the world

The papers write all kinds of stupid stuff. I believe his injury for what it is. I have had a similar injuries and what happens it takes a while for the rest of the muscles to build up to their previous best and you do tend to pick up injuries that are not related to his knees. On form he is better than Rooney, RVP and in a different league.

God Created United

Agree that he's one of the best strikers in the world; at least he was before his injury. I'm hoping that he will be back to his best but if he fails to demonstrate the kind of ability he showcased in Madrid I wouldn't be surprised if we think twice about signing him permanently. Whether or not we make his move permanent should depend on his performances with his cost and age being taken into account.

Are we maybe moving towards playing only 1 striker hence the backtracking on paying 44 mill and 300 k a week on falcao

Possibly journalistic guesswork, they need to fill column inches and if they have enough guesses one will eventually be right so they can claim to say they got it right. If and it is an if I would guess that perhaps working with Wilson and seeing the physical nature of the league has changed his opinion, perhaps he is looking for more pace?

If lvg has now decided that 1 striker is the way to go you would have to wonder if 44 mill and 300k for falcao would still be on the cards.
For me i think the lone striker is falcao best position and i would have him before rvp all day long but would lvg ?

Sterling.

redseven

My concern with Pique is his focus. I felt he should have had more of a chance when with us and liked what I saw back then. Right now he has a pop star partner and as with Beckham may have lost a little edge and focus on his football hence not playing as well or as often. I would think Barca can't afford to lose anyone during their transfer ban but if his focus is not there and should he be causing any problems in the club that may prompt them to consider it. I don't see him leaving Spain but a focussed Pique is a top player.
I would be guessing but Bale may be sacrificed for Sterling. Bale's injury record would warrant inspection but I don't think we can afford to spend £85m on a player unless we are selling a few. Just my take on it.
