Question for 002, does interest remain in Guarin? Or is all our interest in Carvalho right now? Cheers and sorry if already answered this. Greatly appreciate your info 002.

If juventus won't sell vidal why we would we sell them Chico after evra went unless they do business.
If they won't tell them to stuff off and sell him to another.

How do you know that we were ever really in for him, or that it wasn't Vidal that turned us down. Doesn't matter where Hernandez goes as long as we get a good price

Good call make him part of the deal or quote a huge price well above value sick of paying what other clubs want and selling our players cheap

It's quite simple really: Juve don't want to sell Vidal, United want to sell Hernandez.

Because this is not swapping footy stickers in the playground. Chances are United haven't offered what Juve want just like last summer and we've missed another world class midfielder.

If Juve are willing to pay what United ask for Chica then they'll sell him. That's what normally happens, Woodward doesn't seem to get the grip of this yet.

Nani and Anderson may not be worth much, but Hernandez is a good player to use in player exchanges. So is Kagawa in fact. I hope we use these players wisely to get the best out of the remaining 50 hours of the window.

Central defence is a matter of urgency. I don't think its an exaggeration to say that a top centre back may be the difference between 4th and 5th this season. Our attack is outstanding. We can probably deal with midfield provided Herrera is fit. The achilles heel has to be the shocking defence. A genuine player in this area may make a serious difference to us this season.

I think its time to throw the kitchen sink at Dortmund, as we did with Di Maria. Put whatever premium necessary on the table. Should we make a signing like Hummels and get top 4, the fee is paid off +.

Our situation makes reckless spending a necessity, not a hazard. CL football, merchandising & sponsorship give us the potential to turn success into hard cash like no one's business. Forget about Liverpool fans on twitter and get the deals wrapped EdWW.

I don't blame Juventus

If they don't want to sell now, it's because they won't be able to find an able replacement in such short time

If Utd really wanted Vidal, this deal would've happened earlier

I totally agree RedIsotope. Woodward is obviously very good for us on the commercial side of things. I think he should be left to do that and we should get someone else in to deal with the transfers. I hate to say it but a Director of Football might not be a bad idea.

I might sound a bit cynical but it didn't sit well with me when he gave the interview saying we've got money to burn on transfers. Surely potential sellers will be rubbing there hands together.

We should play hardball, you want him you pay this stupid figure or we take the stance you won't deal with us we won't deal with you.
If we want vidal keep slapping down the euros till they say yes, flex the muscles all these sponsorship deals give us.
We give in too easy.

If vidal is a no go why not try some sort of deal with Hernandez for chiellini? Just a thought.

What if its a case of United playing hardball then stumping up the money on transfer deadline day when there is no room for negotiating. Juve may well accept an offer that late with no replacement as they think his value will only depreciate from now because of his age.

Ozwald

A director of football does sound like a good idea. Right now however money has to be dished out. Teams in Europe are watching us fill out 90,000 seater friendlies in the US. We are sweating on the completion of a top to bottom first team rebuild, & there is an unnerving pressure to restore our Champions league pedigree. Its a bad combination, - and unfortunately, you have to pay for it.

In time it will become easier. Directors can sit back and pick off players at value once the existing squad is strong. Toni Kroos, Van persie, Carzorla, Fabregas etc. pop up every few years at reasonable prices afterall. Right now, however, the money has to go out the door. That for me begins with a world class centre back.

Cheillini is a good suggestion, but i'm not sure Juventus will let him go. At the start of the window there was Mangala, Hummels and Benatia. One remains on that list. Hummels won't be cheap, but what's the alternative? We are one injury away from lining up the defence that faced MK Dons. If that isn't a threat to top 4 and sustaining future profits, then what is?

The question to EdWW and the Glazers right now is "how much is this problem going to cost us?", not, "how much is this player worth?" No trophies, no CL, means no sponsorship, no empire.

Hummels is worth £20-25million. i'm not a huge fan of Hummels as some may know, but he is a world class defender, and with 2 days left on the clock, - after which we probably go into the new season unable to challenge our rivals, the value of Hummels is whatever Dortmund want for him. We left it too late, and its now boom or bust.

Could there be interest in Dani Parejo of Valencia? 10m + Cleverly and we can do away with the never ending Vidal and Carvahlo rumours.
Valencia seem to always be in the process of balancing the books, - a quick bargain would be nice for a change.

It seems to me there are some decent defensive midfielders out there. i'm a lot more worried about centre backs to be honest.

No coincidence at all.Its one of two things
1)vidal refused to come in till he got the no.23 shirt so we had to sell cleverly against our/his wishes.
2)We sold cleverly and started looking at all the no.23s(cause only a 23 can replace a 23) of various teams and agreed upon vidal.We could also have gone for michael jordan but he's retired

Ed02{Ed002's Note - If Hernandez and Welbeck leave do not be surprised by a bid for a striker. I am not aware of interest but Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is looking for another club but probably wants Champions League football.

I hope to see James Wilson used this season. I think he is ready to step up and needs game time. Any signings we do make up top could impact his development. I do like the idea of JW and AJ backing up our first choice strikers.

One thing that is a slight concern for me is that RVP is at the age where strikers especially can decline. Seems that football has taken its toll on his body over the years.

I still think we'll come to regret it if Welbeck leaves.

He's perfect cover for Roo and RVP, and he's been improving rapidly. Another year or two and he could be really pushing Roo and RVP for the starting spot.

If Arsenal or Spurs get him he'll do well, and we won't get a suitable replacement without spending a fair bit more than we get for him.

Is there any update on the Lucas Silva situation Ed002? If Vidal dosent materialise, i'd really like to see Lucas Silva bought.

He may be raw potential, but at least we know he won't have to mature on the pitch. His game is already about vision and passing.

Carvalho has similar qualities, but this Silva strikes me as a unique player. Do you think United are in a good position to win negotiations ahead of other interested clubs?

I have a real good feeling we will sign two more midfielders this window. Many players leaving.

Zaha - Cleverley - Kagawa - Hernandez - Welbeck - Anderson - Lindegaard - Rafael - Varela - Fellaini - Vermijl - W.Keane.

Can we find them all a club though? Not long left now and so much to do. Doubt all will go, many will depend on incoming players too. Then there's the loan outs too.

When is carrick due back from injury?

He had surgery on his ankle ligament injury 6 weeks ago tomorrow (Thursday, July 17th), and was rumoured to be out 10-12 weeks.
So that has him returning at some point in October - depending on how quickly he rehabilitates.

I work in a bar which many of the united players frequent, and Carrick was there for the bank holiday party we threw. He was still in a cast, so I wouldn't expect any time soon. Incidentally, Fellaini was there too and I didn't see them so much as look at each other the whole night. He was on the other side of the place with Everton players. Take from this what you will

Alonso will be moving from Real to Bayern. What are the chances that Real will move for Vidal to replace him?

It would be the ultimate kick in the teeth if Real ended up using some of the Di Maria money to fund a move for the player we actually needed. I suspect we'll find out soon enough. Unlike us - Real get things done quickly.

Would they replace Alonso having already signed Kroos earlier in the window? Is Alonso leaving because of the Kroos signing or are RM selling Alonso and looking to replace him?

That really would stick it in and break it off especially with Guarin going to Juve(allegedly)

That's probably why they give Modric a new deal last week, so when they sign Vidal he doesn't kick up a fuss and try and force a move.

Deyno - It's hard to say. Alonso is getting on a bit now and the word is that he asked to leave. He signed a new three year contract last season and he's been a fantastic player for them - so I imagine they will have wanted to keep him. There's a chance it's because he was worried about his game time next season but I imagine he wanted to get one more big contract in before hanging up his boots.

Assuming that Bale, Ronaldo, Rodriguez and a striker (Falcao) are going to be first choice - RM currently have Modric, Kroos, Illarramendi and Khedira battling it out for 2 midfield spots (I think Isco would be back-up for Rodriguez).

Khedira looks like he'll leave in the next twelve months and so I expect he'll be used as backup rather than being first choice. Illarramendi made a fair few appearances last season but wasn't particularly impressive and I don't see him having a long term future with the club despite his hefty price-tag. That leaves Kroos and Modric as first choice and adequate cover in Khedira and Illarramendi.

I don't think Real need Vidal - but I can very much see them signing him. It's a very 'Real' thing to do. The thought of Falcao, Bale, Ronaldo, Rodriguez, Kroos and Vidal in the same team is frightening though. Probably the best and deadliest front six ever assembled.

I thought that money is going to the falcao transfer

Pretty sure the money they get from us is going on the falcao move

I would not be at all surprised if they take Falcao on loan for the season for a fee with a view to buying him outright next season. Either way Falcao will not cost £64m. I expect he could be signed for between £40m and £50m. We will see shortly.

Ed lots of reports today in press and websites about a deal for vidal being agreed has there been any developments?
Does anyone else think it's a bit disappointing that sky think a measure of the epl success is the amount Of money spent, I know we all want money spent and players brought in but just imagine if that was invested in english football or more youth development.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement between the clubs at this time.}

Just been told off a good friend (who has a few good connections) that Juventus want Kagawa as part of any Vidal potential deal. Patrice Evra has apparently been raving about Shinji, and his suitability to the Italian game - which on reflection l, I would have to agree with. I think Kagawa would become a star in the Italian league. Their slower paced, technically favourable game would be right up his street.

Interesting if true!

I was having this very conversation yesterday. Kagawa would be great in Italy and is wasted with us. If we offered Kagawa, Hernandez and £10m I can't see Juve turning it down.

I think Kagawa is a good player and on the whole has been played out of position a lot but, it might be time for him to go, we've got too many no10s

After last nights game and his lack of ability to play a 5 yard ball to a team mate I can't see Henandez having a place either in the squad.

Offering Juve Kagawa, Hernandez and £10million would be no good to them, would it? Aren't they struggling financially? Wouldn't it be better for Woodward to offer them what they want for the player and stop messing about like he did last summer with Fabregas and Thiago?

That's what he was referring to Frink.

I think the game changed for the worse when Kagawa came off last night. I've always been a huge fan but the thing that annoys me the most is since he moved to us he seems to have lost a bit of fight and determination on and off the ball, especially running with the ball at his feet, just never tries it. Such a shame and maybe it is time for him to move on for that reason.

Why would Kagawa be so suited to Italy?

He was great in Germany, which is more like the EPL than Italy.

Apparently Januzaj was the player Juventus wanted initially. Reports earlier today have said Vidal has said goodbye to his teammates.

I've seen a few articles about Rojo facing a possible jail term, I wander if this is anything to do with a hold up on the work permit?

I hardly think we would spent this amount on someone that was possibly going to jail, although I don't know exactly what happened as I wasnt there I would stake a good wedge of money on this incident being blown way out of proportion.

Either way, the delay doesn't help us one bit. Actually couldn't have come at a worse time really! With our defence looking as poor as it does.
I agree though, I am sure we would have done the research before splashing the cash.
