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.

Fresh!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I can tell you that Marcelo will likely leave in January or the summer but I am not aware of Manchester United approaching either his agent or his club at this time.}

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.}

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

steermaria

( 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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Alright folks,
Just thought i'd ask the Eds about a possible return for Ronaldo to utd. Is there anything fans should be excited about or are the murmurs nothing but rumour and speculation? I guess what i'm asking is, does anybody feel like it is likely to happen in the next 2 windows?

T13   T13

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Nothing has chaged since I wrote this on September 11: It is fair to say that there is the possibility of Ronaldo moving in either January or next summer if a tense situation with Real Madrid cannot be resolved. Jorge Mendes has spoken with the player and the club and he has indeed raised the possibility of a transfer when meeting with Chelsea at Cobham as recently as Wednesday. He may well have raised the matter with Manchester United as well. However, I would doubt a move to Manchester United would be possible in January and regardless of that wages would be a major stumbling block. Next summer? Anyone's guess at this time and much will depend on what happens this season.}

Evening Eds. A player I have liked for some time now is Miralem Pjanic of Roma, formerly Lyon I believe? Has he been of interest to Manchester United or any other Premier League clubs at any point in the past?

UnitedForMe

Ed02{Ed002's Note - PSG and Manchester City both remain keen on the signing of Miralem Pjanic. Spurs might well be interested if he was available at the right price - but that would be very high. Manchester United also made an enquiry before apponting a new manager, but it went nowhere. Dortmund dropped their interest.}

I think this kid will get better and better. He's 8 in 8 at the moment with 3 assists. I think next season or even January is the time to pounce for him as if we don't one of our rivals will. I really think this lad has it in him to be a future Ballon d'Or winner. This is going to get me some stick but I think he would be a better option to Ronaldo due to his age, fee and wages.

Wages and fee really aren't an issue to united regarding Ronaldo. Can you imagine the income his return would generate with sponsors and sales etc.

I would do whatever it takes to bring him back. End if the day he's 29, and the best player in the world bar none, he could still play at this top top level for another 5 years!

I really really hope to see him come home, where he belongs!

Reports emerging that United will bid 25 million pound for Strootman in January once he has proven his fitness and gotten over his cruciate Injury.

Sabatini previously stated it would need to be a massive sum to tempt Roma to accept a bid for the player. So 25 million seems a little low in comparison to what he wants, that is unless we are hoping Strootman puts in a transfer request once he is aware of definite interest.

Just thought I'd pass along what I have heard and my opinions. Great work on the site Eds, Its very much appreciated

Rumours in one of the tabloids this morning that Mata may be used as a makeweight in the deal. If be tempted to spend the money and keep mata as well. Add a decent cb and that's a world class team

Mata is a better player who is worth more. The only way I can see him used in any deal would be if we got Strootman and £20m for him - but that won't happen.

Where would either Strootman or Vidal play? sure I know they are midfielders but its the defence we need to fix, get a world class cb or two and we are good to go. Evans is a mistake waiting to happen, smalling isn't good enough and Jones will spend to much time in the medical room.

lolface

( 2 )
( 1 )

Lolface, one can only assume if Strootman were to sign he would play the role that Blind played yesterday. This would put Blind on the bench as a Utility player. Saying that though he played outstandingly well yesterday and I don't think Strootman is absolutely necessary. Defensive reinforcements and quality are needed first.

JaMax JaMax

( 0 )

Can't imagine why we wouldn't need someone like Strooty. It's not as if our players never get injured, is it now?

And (hopefully) we will be playing more tournaments next season.

Using that logic, we absolutely need a RB (and I love Rafael to bits), a top CB (agreed they are hard to come by), a Strootytype, and one more winger.

Then we can finally, and safely, thank Mssrs Young and Valencia for their years of selfless service.

We COULD (a man can dream) be genuine CL contenders in 2015 if all those pieces fall in place. f^&% me, i half sound like a ''pool fan with my talk of "next year will be our year". that's what last season did to us I suppose.

Cjmax

You see if Blind carries on as he started I can't see him being dropped, sure it was just QPR but he broke things up and played the ball simply to a more creative player. I enjoyed his performance. Sure we will get injuries but we also have fewer games this year. I still think the defence or a cb is or should be priority.

If you look at our squad, it is pretty darn good now. We have a few world class names: De Gea, Rooney, Van Persie, Di Maria, Mata and Falcao. We have players who will improve greatly this year: Jones, Herrera, Shaw and Januzaj. We also have young players breaking through with a bright future in Wilson, Blackett and Pereira. We still have some who I don't think are United quality and will be replaced.

I'm hoping that Young will go and be replaced with Ronaldo and Fletcher/Anderson will go to be replaced by Strootman. That will make up a very trim but classy 25 man squad.

Don't think so. Transfer would for 55M£-60M£. Ronaldo will be 30 in February, transfer fee and wages approx 300,000 per week. Reus 25M£, 24 year, and wage max 150,000 per week, and you have player for the future. Would not pay for 30 year old player 60M£, even he was CR, make no sense.

Supporters are bothered about how much we spend on players because blasting all our budget on one player like Ronaldo, could possibly mean we don't have sufficient means to acquire the world class CM & CB that we need more at this moment in time. We could be shopping in the 2nd tier market again if we aren't careful.

Its alright saying it's not our money, but if the money runs out then it kind of is like our money!

Beast, we will almost certainly get Strootman and to be honest, no world class centre backs are available, they are few and far between. I'd be happy of we got Strootman and Ronaldo and didn't sign a centre half. Out score the opposition.

Fresh!

( 1 )

Fresh I don't understand your certainty about strootman as think Roma will put a very pretty price on him moving, I don't know how long his contract is but know he signed in last couple of seasons so would expect he has a few years left and Roma can thus play hard ball over price. With regard Ronaldo I would obviously love him back but agree we shouldn't pay loads on him to the detriment of other areas needing attention as he could easily pick up an injury that puts him out for a long period. We could feasibly buy two quality CB for what he may cost and wages wise.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - The major stumbling block to anyone signing him will be the wages. I would think he might be looking for one last hooray with a three or four year deal before retiring to a film career in Hollywood - perhaps a year or two on the US circuit.

I also suspect that if Real Madrid accept he is going to leave that they may look for a straight swap with Aguero. Don't be surprised.}

Several places reporting the possible departure of Mata in January with Juve being strongly tipped as a loan with option to buy next summer. Any truth Eds? would think this if true could be a real bad move as he could prove more vital next season in CL?

Can't believe it if we sell him. Just play him as CAM and Di Maria as a winger/RM. Problem sorted.

I don't see any point in getting rid of Mata. Granted, this year will be hard to keep all our players playing regular football but if we get top four and back in CL next season we'll need these world class players. What better player is there to play behind the likes of RVP and Falcao.

RVP is not getting any younger and Rooney is not as influential as he used to be. Mata is 26 and the best number 10. Hence I don't think we will sell him. Also people are assuming that we will have all of Rooney, RVP, Falcao, DiMaria and Mata fit always. We will need players like Mata to go for League title and Champions League next season.

This is just paper talk as there is nothing else traffic wise going on. The next few months will tell if Mata will fit into LVG s first team so let's see what happens.

There are a lot of players that should go before him. But, if we are looking at bringing in a Ronaldo or Reus as well as keeping Januzaj happy then he may have to go.

Fresh!

Can not see him leaving in jam even if we sign Strootman, but come the summer this may happen. If we change to 4-3-3 where does mata really fit in. Falco/rvp as main striker di Maria to the right. Hoping for Reus on the left. Strootman as dm, herrera in front of him and another strong cm next to him, Vidal or pogba would be choice at present. If he was happy to stay and fight for a place in this system fantastic as he is a quality player and the more we have in the squad the better the squad will be.

The very idea of selling Mata is something we should not even be contemplating.

If this was to happen (which I highly doubt) then we should try to get either pogba or vidal in a deal to bolster the still weak midfield we have.

If we play with 2 strikers (falcao & RVP) then mata will struggle to fit in. But if we play with a lone striker assuming falcao that is, then we can have di maria on right rooney on left and mata behind falcao.

Kagawa's gone and now there's rumour's that Mata's surplus to requirements too? So who play's in the No.10 role?

I hear from multiple (semi-reliable) sources that young dutch and PSV superstar Memphis Depay has conveyed his interest in possibly becoming a Man utd player as early as january. Thoughts anyone?

Reports appearing that Davide Petrucci has left United by having his contract terminated by mutual agreement. He is apparently joining Romanian side, Cluj. Another promising youngster bites the dust.

Are you sure it isn't a loan or a sale? As the Romanian window doesn't shut until Monday. If his contract was being terminated he could join anybody.

Sydney! Sydney!

Ed07{Ed007's Note - His contract has been terminated, Syd, he can't sign for anybody though, to do that a player needs to be free while the window is open. If an English/Italian/French etc team wanted to sign Petrucci they wouldn't be allowed to register (or play) him until the window opens again in January.}

Cheers for that Ed. Seems odd his contract wasn't terminated two weeks ago, or odd that he wasn't sold even for a couple hundred grand a couple weeks ago. I guess the club are trying to get the wage bill down.

Sydney! Sydney!

Ed07{Ed007's Note - He was out of contract next summer and knew he would have very limited game time at Utd this year but I agree, if he had been freed during the window he would have had better offers than Cluj. It's only a one-year deal he's signed with an option for a further 2 if both parties agree, perhaps Utd weren't going to renew his deal and he just wanted to be playing before becoming a free agent next summer and what options open up for him.}

He may of had great potential but good riddance if this is his attitude

Petrucci had immense potential when we signed him. If he didn't have his injuries he would be a great player now, not many players you can say that about. Imagine missing two years of football with pelvis issues when you are just 17/18. He never recovered from that.

Sydney! Sydney!

Ashame pettrucci had bags of talent but was very unlucky with bad injuries, wish him well

Red79,

I'm confused, what attitude? Wanting to play football regularly rather than taking a wage for doing nothing all year? What an person.

Come on GDS, he's not a Utd player anymore, now we're supposed to turn on him and pick holes in his character.

He was no good anyway, waste of money, can't believe he didn't retire when he first got injured. He's not local anyway, bet his agent's a wh0re, wasn't born in Manchester, we should bring Vidal in to replace him, what jind of name is Petrucci anyway? Etc.

(Can we sign Vidal now?)

Fair play to him. Could have sat in our reserves for 12 months collecting wages or move to a team for regular games and the chance of attracting a bigger teams eye. Shame Anderson doesn't have the same attitude. Hopefully the lad avoids injuries, he'll probably be in serie a next summer.

Reports all over the place that Strootman has sacked his agent & appointed the same agent Van Gaal & RVP use. Just passing on what I read.
