Just a guess but I reckon Pogba to Barcelona and O Dembele to United is on.
not for a swap but similar to sanchez miki deal.
Think Martial may go to spuds in a similar type deal for Toby in return but I reckon it will actually turn out to be psg where martial ends up.
If the deal with spurs doesn't work out Maguire will be coming which will disappoint me immensely.

Let's wait and see, am I hot or cold eds?

Agree1 Disagree31

05 Aug 2018 20:26:09
I’d take Dembele for sure. We’d still need a Pog replacement though.

05 Aug 2018 20:47:02
If Pogba goes we need sms.

05 Aug 2018 21:55:35
Will you then change your name PogtheDog?

05 Aug 2018 22:37:21
Lol 12 dislikes, a lot of Harry maguire fans in the house. As Pogba said, 'football went home'

05 Aug 2018 22:49:47
Its got nothing to do with Maguire. Why keep banging on about that. How bitter are you.

05 Aug 2018 22:58:24
When life hands you lemons.

06 Aug 2018 00:27:49
Make an omlette?

06 Aug 2018 08:04:21
Lemons get a bad rap. They’re delicious.

06 Aug 2018 10:18:41
Lemon gelato is the best. Maybe with a scoop of mint choc or hazelnut caramel.

05 Aug 2018 16:01:26
Hi ed002.
You said that pogba and martial will obviously stay if we can't do deals for them.
Should any club move for them at this late stage are the club in a position to replace them with incoming players at this point?
So isuppose i'm asking is there a couple of deals for potential incoming players dependent on the sale of pogba and martial. I would imagine any player or club that we are looking to do deals with would be less keen to sell later in the window.

{Ed002's Note - Yes. The transfer window is still open Ken. The club has targets, as you know.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2018 15:43:09
Do you feel as if we will get Willian Ed001? Doesn't seem like anything is happening, only 4/ 5 days left and it's a priority position. Remember Ed002 saying Mourinho wants to sort out the lack of width in the team, only a RB added so far.

{Ed001's Note - no I think Willian will stay put. Sarri is certainly keen to keep him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2018 16:09:13
Oh crap😓, can you see any other rw coming in Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure someone will arrive for that position yes.}

05 Aug 2018 16:31:12
ED001, if you were the manager, who woukd you sign as a RW?

{Ed001's Note - Pulisic.}

05 Aug 2018 16:47:11
Ed1, is that something that you know or is that something like a feeling that someone would arrive? Given that we had been linked with Willian throughout the window, it seems like an anti-climax that he won't be coming in. Thanks for the inputs.

{Ed001's Note - that is seen as the main priority position that you have spent all summer trying to buy for, so I don't expect United to just give up because they can't get Willian.}

05 Aug 2018 17:24:11
Its all a case of who else is on the list and who's available.

05 Aug 2018 18:07:50
It might well be Dembele with Pogba moving the other way.

06 Aug 2018 03:57:26
Cheers ED001. How highly do you rate pulisic?

{Ed001's Note - he is extremely talented with a very good application to training. It is that which should see him go really far in the game. His parents are both professional sports coaches and so he grew up in an environment where he was shown that he needed to be dedicated and work hard to succeed and they are still big influences on him now. Plus he is a United fan, which could potentially add that tiny bit that makes the difference between a good player and a great player.}

06 Aug 2018 09:31:28
Cheers ED001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

05 Aug 2018 10:38:21
There seems to be a whole lot of reports stating that the toby deal is done, yet there seems to be very little substance in the reports .

I wonder if you would be kind enough ed002 to let us know if we have made any kind of breakthrough with spurs regarding theirs and our valuation in the player? .

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I can't help with "breakthroughs".}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2018 11:35:12
Fair enough.

05 Aug 2018 11:46:44
Ed002 did say for us to expect a couple of incoming and outgoings and with the alderweireld Reports getting stronger, we can only hope it's positive news.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I did.}

05 Aug 2018 14:42:25
Smalling and Rojo out and Toby wouldn't be bad business. Hopefully a right forward too.

05 Aug 2018 16:12:57
Do you reckon its a couple of incoming AND outgoings or a couple of incomings and a couple of outgoings? Might be reading too much into it but Alderweireld isn't enough.

{Ed002's Note - Give me a damned break from this.}

05 Aug 2018 16:54:59
Sorry ed think we're all a bit stressed knowing the windows so close and we feel 3 positions minimum need improving without players leaving. Obviously Twitter doesn't help, never mind sky who now say we are in for Maguire but will cost over £75m! Which I personally can't see happening, I trust you ed and think the club will push for alderweireld and hopefully a right winger I'm unsure who if not Willian, perhaps dembele in a pogba deal.

05 Aug 2018 16:58:11
And now we're back in for Maguire. Sky sports need to make their mind up.

05 Aug 2018 19:22:49
That question was intended for the posters Ed. My bad though.

{Ed002's Note - OK.}

07 Aug 2018 11:22:36
I think Maguire is purely a money maker for sky bet imo.

Sky sources don't get anything right at the best of times.

07 Aug 2018 11:24:32
Sky sports only do it so people run to sky bet. Surely that should be looked at. Its a bit immoral that a media broadcaster can create stories and also have a betting arm. Imagine if the likes of William hill started doing the same.

04 Aug 2018 20:56:27
Several reports saying TFM going out on loan to Hertha Berlin.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Aug 2018 21:28:55
Would be a shame as would have like to have seen him get more minutes. Especially with Valencia out and Dalot an unknown quantity. Hope this doesn’t mean darmian won’t be moved on. Guess we will have to wait and see how this pans out.

04 Aug 2018 22:11:30
Surely means a Darmian is staying now. The Italian international could be a revelation in a 3-5-2, or indeed at right back used properly.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

04 Aug 2018 22:24:11
Intersting Ed. Darmian def leaving then.

Very, very busy time coming up with ins and outs.

05 Aug 2018 04:08:03
Tfm will benefit from that i hope he plays in his more natural position. Periera looks a better player following n his ex perience should have sent martial on loan last season we could have got back a much more rounded player.

05 Aug 2018 07:40:55
With darmian likely leaving and dalot and valencia injured i'm guessing we'll have to play tuanzebe lindeloff at right back?

05 Aug 2018 07:41:40
Darmian will go to Italy so there is still plenty of time to shift him out as the deadline only changed in the prem.

We may use him the first couple of games whilst we wait on Valencia and Dalot and then sell him.

05 Aug 2018 07:59:40
If a LB is signed, then we may even see Young shifted to the right with Shaw and the new LB on the left. Final few days may be exciting and nerve wrecking. Checking the sites every 15-20 mins.

05 Aug 2018 09:22:37
We have Valencia and Dalot, Jones, Bailly, Lindelof, new signing, Shaw and Young, enough to cover any formation without Darmian. Presuming Smalling and Rojo leave that is aswell.

05 Aug 2018 15:39:02
Personally I’d keep Smalling and sell rojo and add Toby. Job done at centre half.

Still think we need a real left back more than a right forward if we are to make another purchase.

If Pogba leaves we will most definitely need to replace him too.

04 Aug 2018 09:37:13
Negotiations started yesterday with levy, expect to them to progress quickly. (Photos will emerge today of the two chief executive meeting),

Agree5 Disagree8

04 Aug 2018 10:02:15
Hope its true but what is the source of this information!

04 Aug 2018 12:47:07
Hoggy,

Twitter, where all the confirmed rumours come from these days.

04 Aug 2018 13:07:28
No hoogy it’s not, a friend works in a department at Man Utd, stop being so negative. You want to bet eye brows on it?

04 Aug 2018 13:11:29
I deleted my Twitter, don't want to sound paranoid but I think people were starting to follow me😀.

04 Aug 2018 19:08:22
Oh leahy, joke is still as good 2nd time round!

04 Aug 2018 20:29:29
Interesting scenario.

Daniel Levy said he’d never deal with United again after Ferguson tapped up Berbatov back in 2008.

05 Aug 2018 09:56:36
SSN reporting 60 mil fee agreed.

03 Aug 2018 15:02:58
According to the 'London Press👀', we've agreed a deal with Spurs for Alderweireld, £55m five year deal. Discussing personal terms, hopefully true.

Agree12 Disagree3

03 Aug 2018 15:28:51
Be a great signing if true.

03 Aug 2018 15:58:43
Read same thing and immediately after saw another headline on Sky sports this time; Yerry Mina agrees terms with Man Utd lol.

03 Aug 2018 16:19:46
Could we be going for both?

03 Aug 2018 16:31:48
Could be if he wants to play a back 3.

03 Aug 2018 16:32:07
Maybe if Rojo and Smalling both leave.

03 Aug 2018 16:38:48
Eric - I think so too. A back 3 would suit us well, especially if we move Pogba on and let mata/ Lingard play at 10. Willian on one wing with Young on another - we will never attack with both wingers anyway. Will give Sanchez the chance to play up top with Lukaku who looked immense against Brazil in that position. Toby’s passing out of defence is also outstanding which is needed with a back 3.

03 Aug 2018 18:31:25
If we ship out Rojo, smalling and get mina, Toby . it would be fantastic.

03 Aug 2018 18:49:45
It would be great to get Toby. but doesn't sort out the rw and I carnt see us getting anyone for that position. but never say never transfer deadline not till Thurs a lot can happen from now till then or am I dreaming lol.

03 Aug 2018 22:12:04
I don’t know why on earth anyone would keep Phil Jones ahead of Mike Smalling. Jones has an injury record that could rival Darren Anderton. Admittedly, he played well for the few months he was fit and got a run in the team last year, he has rarely done it for United while Smalling has proved he is more than capable of putting in good - very good performances and has played with more consistency than either Jones or Rojo.

I’m far from a Smalling fan, however he is definitely a more reliable performer than Rojo or Jones and gives the medical department less of a headache. As a 3rd or 4th choice CB, Smalling over those two any day of the week.

As long as we can get some quality CB’s in that is. Unlikely though. Both Mina and Alderweireld have been mentioned a lot this week, both would be an upgrade on all three, so it would be positive business from Jose if he were to pull off a 2 in / 2 out move this summer. Alderweireld giving us the leadership, quality in possession and balls we are lacking at CB.

Also, Mike Smalling for the golden boot this year.

03 Aug 2018 23:56:10
DesHes

Maybe it has to do with the fact that once Smalling is around, Jose will always have a reason to play him (cos he's almost always fit) .

So naturally, we want him out of the way.


As for Jones, it'll be unlikely that he'll ever be more than a sub or backup (due to several reasons top of which is staying fit) .

04 Aug 2018 08:57:12
I would love to see us switch to a three at the back system, I think it works best for the players we have. However, under Mourinho it will only ever be used occasionally. He has said several times on tour that he is only using that system because of the players he has available on tour.

Once the season starts it will be 4231/ 433.

04 Aug 2018 11:04:57
Shappy was the idea behind signing Lindelof not using him in a back 3 with perisic as a wing back? Could still be an outside chance of that maybe? I think a back 3 of bailly and Lindelof either side of Toby would be very strong. Fosu mensah also looking decent playing there in pre season with his pace.
I doubt we will sign a wing back but maybe shaw and Mitchell could do enough on the left or young who played there for England.

04 Aug 2018 13:06:00
Man Utd have regressed. this was a tactic LVG wanted to implement. at the time he wanted to sign Vermaelan who joined Barcelona instead as United were taking too long. few years later and its similar situation. this seems the way Ed Woodward does his business and possibly why that Javier Ribalta decided to move on.

02 Aug 2018 15:38:43
Lots of stories that players are disillusioned with Jose. Can't remember SAF publicly criticising players as they are now. In any job a manager needs to visibly demonstrate a commitment to his or her employers. Jose continuing to live in a hotel, with his family still in London, doesn't really demonstrate great commitment or permanence.

Agree8 Disagree16

02 Aug 2018 16:21:28
Hi. Welcome to the page. Obviously you haven't been reading the page much going by your post.

SAF didn't publicly criticize, he just kicked them in the head.

02 Aug 2018 18:30:10
Looks like Spurs are having a clear out . Dembele, Rose and Auderwield. Be happy if we could get Rose and Toby.
Not sure on this Yerry Mina chap.
I'm sure Levy would like to rinse any interested parties for what he can . Or better still they don't move on and leave him up the creek.
But hopefully we can Toby at a decent price, In my eyes a a much better fit than Mina.
Then sell Smalling or Jones or Rojo for that matter.
Be glad when transfer window shuts . Doing my pigging head in.
Up the reds.

02 Aug 2018 19:11:09
Alderweireld a big yes but Rose a big no.

02 Aug 2018 22:48:17
Read on the Wolves page when digging for information around Sterling that Rose may end up there on a season long loan with option to buy at the end.

02 Aug 2018 23:40:42
So if pogba was to be sold this window, how much do you think he is worth? I think at least £140m. I really hope he stays tho. If he did go tho who would replace him?

02 Aug 2018 23:41:02
Smalling* apologies.

03 Aug 2018 00:04:09
I would be amazed if any team in the world was willing to pay £100mil+ for Pogba.

03 Aug 2018 06:52:26
Where Jose chooses to live is of no business to anybody but him and his family. Lots of people all over the country choose to live nowhere near where their jobs are.

Families and home are a permanent thing, jobs are transient where we exchange our time for money. Gone are the days mostly where people stay with the same employee for life.

03 Aug 2018 09:56:47
I'm guessing Jose lives on his own, so why wouldn't he stay in a hotel? He doesn't need to cook or clean for himself and I'm sure he is not staying in a studio apartment. Seems to be that some people want to find any reason they can to bring him down.

03 Aug 2018 11:25:54
Look at what lukaku said about Jose. He’s a serial winner.

{Ed004's Note - Don't you mean serial whinger? Media couldn't have reported something that positive}

03 Aug 2018 13:07:45
It’s getting ridiculous isn’t it ed. People only hear and read what they want these days due to the media.

{Ed004's Note - Exactly. Negative comments on Utd sell papers so it won't stop anytime soon}

03 Aug 2018 15:05:58
What would you do? Live in a 5 star hotel all in @ 5k a week ( paid for by Utd) . Or live in wilmslow.

02 Aug 2018 11:05:00
Noticed Diego Dalot has teken the No.20 shirt worn by Romero last season.
With Joel Pereira yet to go out on loan, do you think it's likely Romero will be on his way out with JP staying or am I reading too much into it?

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2018 12:16:30
I thought Joel Pereira already had gone out on loan to a Poruguese club.

02 Aug 2018 12:19:10
Joel Pereira will be going out on loan. He’s very highly thought of within the club, and they know he now needs game time to progress.

I think I seen somewhere, Romero is taking the 12/ 13 shirt.

02 Aug 2018 17:50:50
Romero has had number 22 I think.

01 Aug 2018 19:42:47
Ed some reports that kovacic as turned down a move to United as he  feels our playing style woukd be a bad fit with his own skills.
Any truth in it.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that. There are sides interested in him.}

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2018 19:54:03
Cheers ed.
