According to Rodney Marsh United have had a "quiet word" with Guardiola. I know probably a load of rubbish but thought I would share.

Hi I'm a first timer on the site but looked an admired for years!! Has anyone got any more news on marquinhos looking more likely he is coming to United but just don't know if it's now or the summer? Thanks

Cjl55555

Ed02{Ed002's Note - The issue with Marquinhos remains the price and his lack of experience at the top level (given his price). Paying way over the top for someone who is perhaps fourth choice makes no sense.}

Is Dragovic looking likely? Hearing different things from different media outlets.

Also, are Spurs trying to get Depay in this window? If they are then I do hope we make a push for him too and don't just leave it. £15 million for someone who could be a real world class start is excellent.

Fresh!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I explained about Dragovic yesterday when Dinamo said they knew of interest from several clubs but had only had the one offer at that time. PSV's Memphis Depay has attracted interest from a number of clubs with Manchester City, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Spurs, Marseille and Manchester United looking to see of a deal can be struck this past summer. Marseille signed Batshuayi and dropped their interest in Depay and UEFA sanctions will block any move from Manchester City before next summer. Newcastle and Spurs are known to still keeping an eye on the player with Manchester United and Everton being suggested as possible destinations as well. Someone very knowledgeable about football in the Netherlands has suggested that a move to Newcastle would suit Depay better than the likes of Real Madrid or the Manchester sides as he would need a couple of years to establish himself in the first team and sitting on the bench will not help him at all. He has also advised against a move to Spurs, and his views are well enough thought of to likely remove them from being an option for the player himself.}

For those of us, who know nothing about him Coukd you give an update on whether this is a good buy, will he play with Rojo or likely still want another CB. Seems bit out of left field

Brad76

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Being a "good buy" or not is subjective. Dinamo Kiev know he is going to leave and he wants to move to England. I am not sure if he would be a regular starter for Manchester United or a squad player - he is no Hummels.

I should have included Roma in the list of interested clubs.}

Why would we pay a fee for Falcao to then swap him with Cavani. Why not a straight bid.

Hi Guys

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that David De Gea has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid.It states that although United have been discussing a new contract with him for weeks no offer has yet been made.It suggests that David will join them in the summer.All this but no fee has been agreed between the 2 clubs.
I do not know how reliable this is and I personally hope it doesn't happen.Real can keep Bale and I want us to keep David.

With Chelsea being strongly linked with Cuadrado have we shown any interest, or is there a chance of snatching from the clutches of jose by matching his buyout clause?

Guy

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Barcelona were looking to replace Dani Alves with Cuadrado but due to the delay in the sale of Alves lost out to Fiorentina in the summer who finalised the purchase of the rights held by Udinese. That gave them full control over the future of the player but efforts to get an auction between Monaco, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona failed. Manchester United would certainly like Cuadrado, but it would have to be "at the right price". He remains of interest to Chelsea and they have scheduled talks with his agent, but they too will want to avoid an auction and the price they have in mind is far from that being asked by Fiorentina. He has not been playing particularly well and Fiorentina would likely consider a January sale if they can sign a replacement - and if they can get a decent price.}

Hello ed 2.
Pls shade some light on our potential interest in pogba and marquinhos

rodio17   rodio17

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Chelsea remain keen on Paul Pogba and would like to strike a deal for next summer. Although Real Madrid moved on from their previous interest, there is every chance of a summer offer including players in part exchange. Again, Manchester United would like to strike a deal. With Barcelona unable to sign players before 2016 and PSG and Manchester City in a difficult situation with UEFA and subject to financial sanctions, that effectively only leaves Bayern Munich as potential buyers, although PSG may well try to sell to raise the funds for Pogba or offer players in exchange.

PSG have no intention of selling Marquinhos just yet. They have said that Manchester United and Chelsea are interested and that Bayern Munich are very interested in the player.}

Are we showing interest in him? Best midfielder in the world within 2-3 years IMO.

You guys really think Cuadrado's that good? I'm highly skeptical about him. Playing like a world beater in Serie A is different to actually being a world beater.

I've seen a bit of Serie A this season and have seen him quite a few times, personally i don't see what all the fuss is about tbh. Every time I've seen him, he has been very average and that is in a poor league. Wouldn't go anywhere near £28m for him.

Anyone know anything about these players?

Fresh!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There is some confusion here. (a) Otamendi was of interest to Barcelona, Zenit, Chelsea, Napoli, Manchester City and CSKA before a move to Valencia in January 2014 and a subsequent loan to Atlético Mineiro. Manchester United and Arsenal remain keen but as Otamendi has only effectively been playing in Spain since August 2014 a move is unlikely unless a very significant offer is made. (b) Villareal's Gabriel Paulista is of interest to Arsenal with discussions going on this week. (c) It is Santos' Gabriel Barbosa that is of interest to Manchester United.

Ed, is Barbosa not Barcelona bound? Or has there interest faded?

JaMax JaMax

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Barbosa continues to be of interest to Chelsea and Manchester United. However, much is expected of him and there is an agreement between Santos and Barcelona that will be exercised in 2016 in all probability. As Barcelona cannot sign players just now, Santos will have the option to sell hime elsewhere.}

No doubt Ed002 will have my head for even mentioning this on the United page but I will endure the wrath anyway.

Thomas Muller gave an interesting interview to the DPA and has also been reported by ESPN in the past few days. In the interview he claims that sometimes training days at the Allianz Arena are tougher than Bundasliga games for this Bayern team. Albeit this Bayern team is a colossal force but when a player is making these types of comments it does make for interesting reading into his mindset.

Thomas Muller doesn't seem like the type of player to me who is happy to go on without a challenge week in week out. You look at his work rate, aggression and passion in tough games which obviously highlights the type of character he is. Yes he may love Bayern, he may love Bavaria and he may love Germany but he (like most top players) will want a challenge at the height of his career.

If he decides to move on from Bavaria for these reasons (not that I am saying he will) where to shall he go? With Barcelona's ban, PSG trying to balance their books and Juventus having limited resources in a poor Italian league his options would be limited. Yes we all know R. Madrid will most certainly sign another 'Galactico' this coming summer and Muller may well be that star.

His only other possibility would be the EPL and if this were the case then surely if United gain CL qualification we would be an attractive proposition. Is it a pipe dream? Maybe. Is it inconceivable that one of the best clubs in the world could sign one of the best players? Not at all.

Thoughts?

Juanmatasbeard

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I have explained what my expectation is for Muller this summer on a number of occasions. Try the search engine.

You need to remember that most footballers are, like most fans, dumb as a box of rocks. Looking in their "mindset" for something deep and meaningful is a complete waste of time.}

Not at all." Then talking about signing Muller which I think Ed002 has made pretty clear that he's confident he'll be at RM by the end of next summer.

Hello Ed002, I hope your well.

I've seen u mention athletico are worried about losing Koke in the summer, I was wondering what clubs are interested and if United are one of those clubs, obviously barca are out of contention this summer and Real M would I'm guessing struggle to strike a deal with there city rivals.

I remeber u hinting Pogba to Chelsea is possible this summer I think, therefore it may not be feasible to buy the both. City are alrealdy getting punishments from ffp.
Would that leave just bayern us (and I'm guessing we would have to sell to due to ffp), arsenal and psg(who as well will have to sell) that may be able to strike a deal?

Just curious more than anything

I'm sure if a player like Koke becomes available we will have interest in him. Our shortlist will be full of players of his age, quality and talent. We are one of the biggest clubs in the world so I'm sure we will be keeping tabs on these types of players, whether we can outmatch other clubs financially for them our match the players ambitions is a different story.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - No, that has not happened. You think that MU just jump ad hoc at any player available and buy them. Ridiculous.}
