Lukaku to Inter looks good as done. Let's hope the club reinvest this into a top class attacking player before the deadline.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 18:28:56
If the latest 65m plus add on bid from inter is true it would be sensible to accept it. But it would be so difficult to do anything on one day 😜.

07 Aug 2019 18:29:13
75 million for Lukaku is a great deal.

07 Aug 2019 18:37:57
I know it doesn't matter to us how much the club gets for a player, I want to just say that if he was a Real Madrid player, they'd definitely get a better deal for him. He is after all Belgium's top goal scorer and has an excellent scoring record in league football. Saying that, I hope we seal this as we don't need "stars" who don't want to play for United.

07 Aug 2019 18:56:36
Great move for both club and player. Win win all round. Was never a Utd player and moving to Inter over Juve means he’ll be the main man for them.

07 Aug 2019 19:11:29
Is that from Fabrizio?

07 Aug 2019 19:23:00
Hopefully the kick up the arse required to pay what is needed to get Fernandes.

07 Aug 2019 20:28:21
£77m including add ons. I'll carry the big lump there myself, although i may need a bit of help. He must weigh about 20 stone, and has 3 legs apparently.

07 Aug 2019 22:09:25
Think it's unfair to say Lukaku didn't want to play for us. Seems to me he has been frozen out due to Ole wanting to play a different style of attacking football. He will score lots of goals if given good service. Not his fault we had no natural wingers and a poor midfield
.

07 Aug 2019 22:59:30
Ole wanted to play a style of football where the players control the ball so he was a bit useless to us. Good move for everyone.

08 Aug 2019 14:48:59
He’s a terrible footballer and above average finisher. Happier with Rash, Tony and Alexis up top.

07 Aug 2019 15:48:06
Ed, you mentioned a while ago when you gave us your extensive update, that Zaha could be of interest to United. Would that still be the case? Just seeing he's handed a transfer request in and I'd definitely take him here. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 13:45:11
Gianluigi Longari who broke news that Koscielny would join Bordeaux 2 months ago is claiming Fenandes deal is done. Also reports he's meeting with the president of sporting to discuss his future. Probably bull but i'm trying to be optimistic here.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 14:02:55
Not happening mate, our transfer dealings are done. We will see a lot of Pereira in that midfield. Also we will see the rise of Angel Gomes this season.

07 Aug 2019 14:37:42
I'm not sure I get it, if he is a done deal why would he meet the president of sporting to discuss his future.

07 Aug 2019 15:00:37
We need midfielders, if we don't sign anyone until the deadline and sell Lukaku and others after that, than if I were Ole I would go, this is a joke, nobody deserves to work like this. And we know who's to blame (not only Ed. ) Stil hope we sign one or maybe two ;)

07 Aug 2019 15:12:05
Ziko:
Patience my friend, club is still trying to close the Sneider deal!
Messi bound to take a little longer than that one.

07 Aug 2019 15:12:23
27 hours until total meltdown on this site.

07 Aug 2019 15:17:10
I have no hope we will address any further signings. I expected 5, we have 2 I'm happy with, whilst James is just potential. still waiting on the club signing a rw, but I'm guessing we'll get another lw next window.

07 Aug 2019 15:18:21
If he comes then great, if not then we will cope. Let’s give Angel Gomes a chance. Some of his touches last night were brilliant.

07 Aug 2019 15:18:58
DW20, I'm expecting triple signing - Snejder, Gaitan and Perisic. We are playing 4231 so we have a good "3" on our hands!

07 Aug 2019 15:30:53
Anyone else on here wishing we go for Zaha?

Martial, Rashford and Zaha would be electrifying on the counter, then Pogba could almost have a free role with McTom/ Matic/ Fred/ Andreas sitting behind him.

07 Aug 2019 15:44:58
Can't believe we've only signed 3 players and spent a measly £145 million. Next thing you know we'll be giving youth players a chance. We have ruined the good name of Moneychester United.

07 Aug 2019 15:51:25
"If I was Ole I would go". Another great quote lads, keep them coming. Genius.

07 Aug 2019 16:04:45
Ed002 has described united as hopping between targets like a headless chicken. hardly a team wanting to give 'youth players a chance'. Do you honestly think kids are playing 30+ games this season?

07 Aug 2019 16:08:18
Ole's going nowhere of his own accord, he was blessed to get the gig in the first place and i'm sure he knows it. The only place he'd be going to if he left United is back to Norway.

07 Aug 2019 16:16:28
Hmm kids let's see, well assuming you mean acadamy kids, we have rashford, tuanzebe, mctominey, greenwood and potentially gomes. In a season with Europa league, they're going to get a fair few games I would think. My condolences for the sad loss of the further 2 signings you expected this transfer window. Stay strong brother!

07 Aug 2019 16:27:19
GDS your sarcasm albeit bloody hell fantastic does not change the fact that we haven't had the transfer window that was required. We were playing catch-up already and we have lagged. Next window, we will be required to get the remaining players required in addition to what may be required then. For instance Matic going, Pogba leaving and what not.

People care of the club in different ways. I am sure you are the happy go lucky one who sees everything as perfect but if someone is saying that they aren't happy with this window then so be it. We have only added AWB, when we already had Dalot, and Maguire. What about RW, which is one position we haven't been able to fill since god knows when. CMx2. Still the Pogba conundrum looms. We don't know about Lukaku. Rojo, Darmian?

So in essence this has been an underwhelming window so far. We may still change that in the next 24 hours but i am not holding my breath given that we don't even know who we want.

07 Aug 2019 16:43:18
I don't class mctominay and rashford as 'kids' anymore. Nor lingard either for that matter. I suppose mctominay is still inexperienced but he will play games as Matic's career is concluding rapidly.

You are probably right though. Fred and Matic are our last two big Mr signings.

07 Aug 2019 16:51:07
We are doomed, doomed I say.
Really just listen to youselves.

07 Aug 2019 17:13:19
It's like being on the Titanic DW20! And Lukaku just took the last lifeboat to Belgium.

{Ed047's Note - the size of him he’d probably sink that too.

07 Aug 2019 17:22:12
GDS2, are you the clown around here? If Ole doesn't have the backing of the board on transfers, at a time they are most needed at United, why he would want to stay?

07 Aug 2019 17:28:52
Ed047 the icebergs would be scrambling to get out of his way. they would probably be faster than him anyway mind!

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣

07 Aug 2019 18:04:08
Why would he leave? "o you didn't get an extra player or two I wanted so I'm going to quit one of the biggest jobs in football and go back to obscurity? "

07 Aug 2019 18:16:15
Looking forward to the window being over so the spoilt brats leave us alone for 9 months to enjoy the season. Football isn’t all about transfers, it’s about the games, and I can’t wait to get to OT on Sunday.

07 Aug 2019 18:41:32
UA,

I’m not happy with the window mate, I’ve made that clear in a few posts, disappointed to say the least that we haven’t got a midfielder signed as I think it was important. But some of the hyperbole and reactions are hilarious you have to admit. You’d think we are going to get relegated with the team we have, we’ve spent more than any other domestic club this window and we have improved, transfers aren’t as easy as people love to make out.

There are also a huge amount of positives that some people are just totally ignoring instead of giving balanced views.

07 Aug 2019 18:30:24
I'm not moaning about the transfers, because I'm 90% satisfied with the window so far, you said it yourself GDS2, we need a midfielder, I still hope we do get one. I'm saying if we don't get a midfielder it will reflect on Ole, one way or another. Of course transfers aren't as easy as on Football manager. But I think for a club like United it shouldn't be that hard to find a good midfielder, even if we're not at the top or have CL football. There are plenty of options.

07 Aug 2019 19:47:45
Agree with CM out there, who are the quality We need like Bruno.

06 Aug 2019 20:33:35
Reports from France claiming a bid for Dembele of Lyon is imminent.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 20:52:39
Non non my cheri . A midfielder is needed not another striker. The only one coming in will be Eriksen 😃😃.

06 Aug 2019 21:45:37
Those retorts started about 2nd of June. The bid was made by carrier pigeon ( a 1 winged carrier pigeon)

07 Aug 2019 01:15:34
New story tonight Kenneth.

07 Aug 2019 07:45:18
Definitely not a new story ole.

07 Aug 2019 12:50:12
I know that, but seemingly we have reignited out interest in him.

07 Aug 2019 13:57:25
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has ruled out Manchester United target Moussa Dembele leaving the club this summer.

He told RMC: “He will be with us this season. There will be no other departures. "

07 Aug 2019 14:35:10
When will teams like Utd realise that it would be much cheaper to pick up the likes of Dembele directly from Scottish teams. The next one that will come to a top 6 team via someone else for x10 the fee is Tierney. We should be looking at taking a punt on these players rather than paying fortunes more a couple years later.

07 Aug 2019 15:27:25
So72, you mean like the signing of Daniel James from Swansea?

08 Aug 2019 10:58:50
Sorry Wazza, where in Scotland is Swansea?

06 Aug 2019 19:57:21
Let merrygoround begin Tottenham get bid accepted for dybala which in turn means they get money for lukaku hfully meaning we get Eriksson or fernandes. I'm not fussed which one comes both makes us a lot better.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 20:25:45
I can't see dybala at spurs not with their pay structure.

06 Aug 2019 21:01:12
The wages was just excuses for him he never wanted to come to us.
I would imagine personal terms might have been talked about before bid went in I think this deal will happen.

06 Aug 2019 21:11:27
Kane's their highest paid player on 200k. Reportedly we offered Dybala 350k and he asked for more. can't see it happening myself.

06 Aug 2019 21:17:56
Well, that was awkward, If swapping Lukaku with Dybala, Dybala's price was 10-15m more than Lukaku's, but now Tottenham's accepted bid is 64m, so Lukaku's price is 50m?! And how can Tottenham pay what Dybala and his entourage wanted and United weren't prepared to pay that? Sky Italy nice job.

06 Aug 2019 21:38:52
Wasn't Dybala asking for more money as compensation for not playing in the Champions' League? And, it is not just this season, I don't think United can promise consistent UCL football in the coming years. Hence, we have got to pay more than other UCL clubs for elite level players.

06 Aug 2019 22:36:20
And Tottenham are a team that can promise consistent CL football? C'mon, they are doing good lately, but if you think Arsenal, Chelsea and United will just satisfy with a battle for the 4th place, because City, Lpool and Tottenham will be subscribed to top 3.I think Tottenham will struggle this season.

06 Aug 2019 23:58:16
There's a bit of an Argentinian connection building up at Tottenham; Lamela, Foyth, Gazzaniga, Poch. add to that Lo Celso if they sign him and then there would be Dybala.

07 Aug 2019 07:11:38
They have a bit of history with Argentinian’s 🤔.

07 Aug 2019 08:16:22
Messi incoming next year then?

06 Aug 2019 17:28:53
Spurs put an official loan bid for courtinho, does this mean Erikson to us? Also we have a supposed interest in courtinho I think he'd be a great addition to the club!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 17:49:58
Coutinho is overrated. He's just a cut inside an blast it hit an hope merchant.

06 Aug 2019 18:07:59
A Brazilian Ashley Young.

06 Aug 2019 18:38:09
I think it's just a case of Levy dangling the carrot.
So we take our eye of the Fernandes deal.
Real Madrid swoop in for Erikson when our window shuts.
But the rest of Europe have another month to get deals done.
Be surprised if we get anyone in now.

06 Aug 2019 20:03:23
Spurs have bid for dybala now according to sky sauces hp and heinze.

06 Aug 2019 20:05:38
Hopefully we are not after Erikson, as Ed01 said back in July, he goes missing in the big games, not what we need at the moment.

06 Aug 2019 20:26:56
Is that a case of eriksen going missing in big games or spurs going missing in big games.

{Ed047's Note - both would appear to go missing when it matters for me Mort.

06 Aug 2019 21:49:46
Grim then who would you want? Eriksen is a quality player in my opinion, and he looks to be available. He would improve our midfield a lot, would add goals and assists. Not to mention his dead ball ability. Would be a great signing if you ask me.

07 Aug 2019 05:49:58
Kai Havertz is the one I would break the bank for, can play the AM position that Ole is currently rotating between Mata and Pereira. Unfortunately I think as with every decent German player he will end up at Bayern.

If Ole is going with 4231, then that would see a formation of
McTominay Pogba
James Havertz Rashford
Martial.

07 Aug 2019 09:15:10
But we know Kai Havertz is likely moving next year to Bayern Munich so he’s not available.

06 Aug 2019 07:24:03
Dybala deal back on after he finally had a meeting with Sarri? They should bin the transfer window altogether. This year has been the most tedious in memory.

Agree5 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 08:17:10
Where have you heard this, Mumbles?

06 Aug 2019 08:21:05
Mumbles, I think due to the many platforms accessible today, the transfer windows have become incredibly more tedious.

I'm sure that all of this went on years ago but news was only made available in the form of paper.

Now its everywhere. More rubbish than ever too. I'd imagine years ago, 'journalists' actually work hard to confirm and corroborate stories. So called journalists today are just regurgitating any news for clicks sake.

Man united are a big story and more is written about the club because more people will click on the story and the clicks mean revenue for the site.

Twitter is the devil during the transfer window lol.

06 Aug 2019 08:23:37
Apparently, Alfredo Pedulla (reliable in Italy, I hope) mentioned something is back on the table. Not too sure, though. I think it's just lousy paper/ journo talk.

06 Aug 2019 08:43:37
Some Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla who's close to Sarri said he's willing to accept our offer. How true it is I don't know. It may be Juventus' last attempt to force the lad out the door.

We'll know how true it is in the coming days.

06 Aug 2019 10:37:24
I quite enjoy the chaos of the transfer window. Providing we end up with the right players once the window has shut, I’m happy to go along for the ride.

I’d still be happy with Dybala providing he cane for the right reasons and gave his all. I can’t blame the lad for looking for a big pay check, but am a little worried by how big the numbers we are hearing are.

06 Aug 2019 11:04:28
A Juve fan friend of mine told me some behind the scenes stuff that triggered the proposed sale of Dybala.
Apparently in the latter part of the season, Dybala when to the training ground with a list of demands for an improved contract. Juventus felt his demands were not justified and decided to ship him out.
According to him he ll end up at Psg who already informed him they re ready to meet his demands.

06 Aug 2019 11:37:39
I don't see we returning to Dybala, he has already acted like a mercenary and will only complicate things if he is to come and join.
Saying that we did look below average in midfield when Pogba is not playing and when Matic is there. So if we can add a solid midfielder to the fold then we will be set. I still feel we will get one more first team player in before the window shuts on thursday.

06 Aug 2019 11:58:08
dev1i. lol Seriously?
sounds total bs.

06 Aug 2019 13:05:12
My auntie is called Flo and she is an old lady and her bingo friend Doris said that her butchers window cleaner said that a bloke in the Eagle and Child told him that you can tell dev1i anything and he will believe it . and i mean anything 😄😄.

06 Aug 2019 13:23:55
BFRO I thought it was a song and tried to rap till I saw dev1i.

06 Aug 2019 13:41:15
@Truedevil when it s too good it probably isn't. Especially when it concerns Juventus.
I think Dybala will soon be gone, and most probably Costa too. However they ll manage to get good money for them even if they want them out.

06 Aug 2019 14:06:04
Pedulla is the best when it comes to Sarri coached teams. The best after our very Eds of course :)

06 Aug 2019 14:29:26
I find the eagle an child a bit cramped. I assume you mean the one in oxford.

06 Aug 2019 17:10:25
No Mort Ramsbottom near Bury.

06 Aug 2019 17:10:40
Romano tweets definitely off lol.

05 Aug 2019 14:57:58
Does any one know why lukaku is training with anderlecht?

Has he been frozen out?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 16:16:08
Let him go, let him go.

{Ed025's Note - love it mort..

05 Aug 2019 16:39:32
Lol Mort 🤣.

05 Aug 2019 16:39:40
the cold never bothered him anyway.

05 Aug 2019 17:49:07
He's to slow to catch a cold.

05 Aug 2019 17:55:16
Bolger,

Are you quoting Frozen?

I hope so.

I am going mightily embarrassed if you are not and I have just announced to the web that I know the words to the songs in that film.

In my defence I have young daughters.

05 Aug 2019 18:01:09
Jonny Blaze, having young daughters in your defence is probably better than having 80m Maguire and Smalling.

Sorry. Liverpool fan. Couldn't resist.

05 Aug 2019 18:24:24
Don’t worry hhan, your man van dijk will soon be the most expensive defender in the world again when Liverpool sell him on to a big club in a season or two.

05 Aug 2019 18:25:05
Clearly your wit is lost on most, Mort.

05 Aug 2019 18:35:12
Jonny I have 3 kids mate I've watched that film to many times Haha.

05 Aug 2019 18:37:13
I was following on from mort it was only suppost to be "olaf"

Let's just hope inter can sven the money to buy him.

05 Aug 2019 19:24:19
It was an open goal an was bored at work.

Always up for a laugh.

05 Aug 2019 20:26:39
Lol bolger 🤣🤣.

05 Aug 2019 20:41:10
BigV

In answer to your OP, quite possibly frozen out for revealing the sprint stats, I imagine some of his fellow professionals are non too happy with that either.

05 Aug 2019 21:26:09
Maybe found his level back at Anderlecht.

05 Aug 2019 22:22:18
He wanted to go to Juventus but his touch took him to Anderlecht.

05 Aug 2019 22:22:45
I've got it. He was training with United and had to chase his first touch.

06 Aug 2019 07:15:20
It's a long way to Italy hopefully this is the first leg of the journey. Just hope the next leg is not at home.

06 Aug 2019 08:31:13
Surprised nobody had the real answer, united players had some time off this week so lukaku was over in Belgium and went training with them, he has done this before, it wasn’t instead of training at united. Great frozen banter though guys.

06 Aug 2019 09:25:42
GDS, you party pooper.

05 Aug 2019 13:44:35
Di Marzio reporting that Juventus are still interested in striking a deal for Lukaku and could return with another offer of a player. Douglas Costa would be a great addition.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 14:21:17
A straight swap for costa would be something.

05 Aug 2019 14:23:18
Why not pay extra $30 million and get Cristiano? Just saying.

05 Aug 2019 14:50:31
Wouldn't have costa for free.

Rumour was matuidi, mandzukic and cash for lukaku.

05 Aug 2019 14:52:26
We have some decent young forwards. We need to give them a chance. We should sell Lukaku without replacement. I still think we will do that, but for a little less than we have been holding out for once the window in England closes.

If we need anyone else, it is in midfield. I'm glad Dybala is off. We should spend the money elsewhere.

05 Aug 2019 14:55:11
I really hope not. Another player with serious attitude problems who has struggled in both Germany and Italy since leaving Ukraine. He’s missed about half the available games each season and has a pitiful goals return considering he has been playing for the dominant team in each league. I wouldn’t be happy signing him full stop, even if the deal was forty million + Costa for Lukaku. A straight swap would be a terrible deal for us.

05 Aug 2019 15:20:09
Take what we can get for lukako and use the money to fund Bruno or savic either would close a good window for us in terms of the players we will have bought and those that we have kept namely ddg and pp.

05 Aug 2019 21:26:40
I’d still be keen if Dybala deal can be worked out.

06 Aug 2019 09:38:58
if they included Bentancur in the deal for Lukaku it would be great.

05 Aug 2019 11:49:09
Ed002,

I know you don't do blow by blow updates and you might not have time to do a sharkopod anytime soon, so I went and saw the last target update that you'd shared with us. Dated around 17th April. Obviously, I've only looked at the Midfielders, as that is the need of the hour.

The following names were on the list of potential targets.

1. Declan Rice - We didn't declare interest, just watched him on a few occasions

2. Rakitic - I think he might be available, but not sure if our interest is sustained

3. Rodri - Moved to city, so out.

4. Saul - Expensive, will definitely not consider moving down

5. Bruno - No acceptable bid submitted by us.

6. Felix - Atleti got him, out

7. Acosta - WP issues, that mostly rules him out.

Another name that we're linked with is SMS, but his move depends on Pogba moving out again, no idea what is happening on that end.
Longstaff is another player that was looked at, but again, no development in that.

Now, from the list, we can rule out at least 2-3, mostly because they joined another side and some we aren't getting. Are there any other players that we're interested or do you see us getting a new MF before the the transfer window ends?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Rakitic will be moving this summer - we'll see what happens.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 13:25:22
Would love Rakitic for a few years: seems like a creative hard-working midfielder. Could be a good combination with McTominay and Pogba.

Still think we need Bruno though - at game Saturday and lack of options final third.

05 Aug 2019 13:44:17
What I like in Bruno Fernandes is that he can play CM and CAM, so no worries if we play 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. Really, really hope we do get him, as we were not seriously linked to any other midfielder (except Longstaf) .
P. S. Nainggolan to Cagliari. Where that came from
;D.

05 Aug 2019 13:55:16
Ok I'll bite

To us perhaps ed002? Would be a pleasant surprise?

05 Aug 2019 14:28:42
Same here, I would have wanted Bruno to come in, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

On Rakitic, wouldn't he be a short-term fix? I know 31 isn't too bad, but then again, is he what we need?

05 Aug 2019 14:29:31
Doucoure from Watford always puts in a shift would be good replacement for a now very slow Matic. 😍🤣.

05 Aug 2019 14:47:23
I would take a punt on John McGinn him and Mctominay in the engine room with pogba further forward pullin the string for Radshford or martial would be a good way to go.
.

05 Aug 2019 14:51:47
Rakitic is a horrible individual so he's out.

05 Aug 2019 14:57:33
I’d be very surprised if we went for Rakitic. We seem to be targeting young, hungry players who will be in the side for years to come. Rakitic would be expensive and would
need to be replaced in a year or two.
