Ed there seems to be a media consesus that we have pulled out the race for Hummels. Is that true? Perhaps anowleding that Dortmund won't sell him in January.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - You are talking in clichés. Nothing has changed. If Hummels is available U will be interested. Dortmund will not make him available unless they can get their preferred alternative - right now that looks unlikely. Ergo ...}

Rumours in the express that we are interested in Aymeric Laporte and bidding for him as early as January ahead of arsenal. I've heard about him but not seen anything of him. Ed do you know of any interest there?

1st time poster long time reader, lassana Diarra is apparently a free agent at the minute does anyone think this could be a good stop gap to help out in midfield until January reinforcements can b brought in?

Hi ed
Wondering if you are aware of any interest in the Danish centre back kjaer of lille. He's young quick and powerful. Played really well against Everton midweek and I know fergie had an eye on him once???

Interesting That the Valdes rumour had been around a while.

13 Aug 2014
Despite being injured I did read a while ago that we had interest in Victor Valdes as competition for De Gea, following Valdes injury lay off but not heard much in a while. Not sure whether Valdes has found a club as yet. I also read that De Gea's girlfriend was encouraging him to move back to Spain and whilst there has been no suggestion he would, a good number 2 could be important

Hi Eds,

We were reportedly interested in Ilkay Gundogan of Dortmund before he got injured, does any interest remain and isn't he a better alternative to Vidal/Strootman, what's your view?

Japs!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him from MU.}

( 0 )
( 2 )

I think Gundogan is a monumentally big risk. He hasn't played for over a season and his knee has taken so long to heal. I'd have major concerns. I honestly think that the most cost effective move would be Khedira and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see us be front runners for him in January.

Fresh!

It's his back, not his knee.

I agree. but until his contract extension last year all of us really wanted him and if he's back up to speed and performing like we know he can, I'd love to see us make a move for him in the summer.

Japs!

If Valdes regains fitness and signs, this is a perfect back-up option

It will allow us to let Lindegaard go and get a bit of cash for him whilst signing an excellent replacement on the cheap.

I am sure Valdes would add more to the wage bill per year then we would be able to get as a fee for Lindegaard.

van Gaal has offered Valdes the chance to finish his recovery and gain fitness with the United first team. This is a great opportunity for De Gea to learn more about van Gaal's systems as Valdes' has played under him before.

Could there be an outside chance we even sign Valdes as a backup keeper?

Morning ed, is there anything in this Marcelo stuff? To me he is great going forward but wouldn't add a great deal to our defence. Not sure he is what we need really.

Hi ed. I've asked this before but still not clear why he isn't a top target. Are we likely to show a significant interest in khedira?

steermaria

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Right now there is serious interest from two clubs in Khedira (Arsenal and Milan) with a watching brief from Chelsea. It is not out of the question that Manchester United will be interested as Real Madrid push for a new contract. A move in January is unlikely, a pre-contract is possible and certainly that would be the preferred route for Milan and Chelsea. THis one will run a while.}

Hope we look seriously at him. Especially if van gaal sticks with this formation he is playing tonight! Khedira and blind holding

New name mentioned in the press today as an alternative to Strootman and Vidal. Luiz Gustavo for a fee around £20 million. Is it plausible and would it be a sensible signing?

Hi ed. Do you have any information on the reported interest in shawcross and galatasarays kaya?? Could they be January deals?

steermaria

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I am not going to talk about timing, but Manchester United are indeed "scouting" Shawcross but I am told they have not approached Stoke yet.. I have asked someone to check on Kaya.}

Wouldn't mind either of them both are injury free and decent defenders also experienced

Matas Beard Matas Beard

Thanks for asking! I'd like shawcross! Not seen much of other guy but shawcross would bring visit like qualities

steermaria

( 0 )
( 0 )

Shawcross gets too many cards because his positioning is awful and he is over aggressive to compensate for it. We don't need more people suspended than we are already getting. Every time I see him play he gets a yellow in the first half an hour or so, which would put me on edge for the remaining hour too.

I appreciate that he's one of ours, which is a huge benefit - I know he loves the club, he was brought through the youth team and he wants to wear the shirt but so do a lot of players, it doesn't mean they are good enough to actually play first team football for us.

I just find myself shouting at the screen whenever I watch him, I don't know why he can't stay tight to his man - it's like he'd be good if someone went through the basics of defending with him again.

I'm not saying he isn't a decent player, he's just not United quality. In fairness, he's probably about Stoke quality.

On another note, oppose to looking around the world for a squad player who can player defensive mid, I think the Korean lad from Swansea has looked great for a while - I thought he looked good when on loan at Sunderland too. He'd tick a box and just provide cover for Blind when we need it. In real terms we've signed Blind who should be in that position long term, we just need someone to occupy it if he's injured, or doing 'a Raheem' and pretending to be tired.

I'm sure shawcross could be trained to improve and would be a good addition as he knows the premier league and helps stoke keep a good goal difference! I'd personally like a defensive midfielder to play with blind and helpful to letting the top 4 attack

According to fifa agent francois gallardo, we already have an agreement next summer for dani alves. I hope not. Don't want him anywhere near our team. Probably one of my least favourite "top" players as I've seen enough face grabbing g and peaking through fingers from the likes of him and busquets for years to come.

Hi ed. Do you see us bidding for Hummels even though it's unlikely he or borussia want him to leave? If not is vlaar really our own main target at cb?

steermaria

Ed02{Ed002's Note - If Hummels is available I would think MU would bid. I cannot help about Vlaar.}

My only issue with Hummels is that we seem covered at the left side. Yes he is probably a step up from Rojo but surely we are putting time into him this season. i would have thought a right sided CB the priority. Unless he wants to do 3 again!

Hummels can play in either the right or left side as a centre back, I don't think it makes a difference.

I don't think hummels is in any hurry to leave Dortmund. And vlaar is far too injury prone.

Do we have any agreement for a permanent deal already in place for Cleverley, Chicharito and Nani?

I see Nani has been playing well for Sporting and Chicharito has been decent. Cleverley has been a main player for Villa and has started all the games.

If we do not have an agreement in place and if they perform well this season their value might go up a bit.

MUMBAI_BOY   MUMBAI_BOY

Might get 20 for Chicarito 10 for Nani at a push and 8 for Cleverly

Matas Beard Matas Beard

I might be wrong but is Cleverley not in his final year so next summer we would not receive a fee as he would be a free agent? We might get a very small fee in January if he made it permanent.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - At this time that is correct.}

Hi Eds, just heard on eurosport that Juve are expecting Vidal to complete a move to United in January. Although i see this unlikely, do you have any information on the matter ?
thanks in advance

strebor83   strebor83

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Juventus will be aware that interest remains in Vidal IF he were to become available. MUFC will still be interested IF he were to be available - but they will not be interested in postering or screwing around. There has been a little incident with Vidal that perhaps folks are over-reacting to. These things pass. So one for the "maybe" pile still.}

Interesting media reports that we might buy Vlar and Delph from Villa in January. Both of them apparently out of contract at the end of the season.

Welsh Paulo

I don't think either would be a bad move. But I am sure we can do better than Vlaar. Delph as a good young English squad player though.

I am a massive fan of delph, but I'd steer clear of Vlaar, defensively average, slow, and shocking on the ball.

I wouldn't be ecstatic with this but wouldn't be unhappy either. Vlaar has done ok under LVG in the past, not greatest in the world but would be useful cover esp with young Paddy out now (although will be back by Jan). Def short at the back. Price seems steep if true

Aj21

Vlar is sensible. Delph, why would we want more squad players for our midfield, whoever we buy in there needs to be top class?

The Beast The Beast

Beast, I think we need one more 'top class' addition and then we do need to upgrade on the squad players in there because at the minute we only have Fletcher, Powell, (Cleverley), Anderson and Carrick.

Most interesting if true.

it appears Tony Strudwick, the first team fitness coach since 2007, has been moved from his usual role to a job looking after the physical development of the club's younger players. It Looks like Lvg has now put someone he trusts and has known a long time, Jos van Dijk in the role.

Many have been frustrated and annoyed by the number of injuries picked up particularly in training. LvG has been here a few weeks and potentially identified an issue and possibly one of the causes. LvG resolved the injuries sustained by Robben and is now looking at our injury prone regulars. If this works and is true the reason why it is interesting becomes clearer.

Ed reports today that Reus contract talks have stalled. Would there be more to this story or is it just posturing on the players behalf. Also a few reports about us returning for pique, again would you think tare is anything more to those reports or is pique's contract probably up for renewal soon? Thanks ed's.
