Reported in Spain that Madrid are back in for De Gea, and he wants to leave. Price being mooted is £50m. Take it with a pinch of salt.

But if it is true, then this should be fun. If they wanted £70m for their backup striker, then how much is one of the top keepers in the world worth?

1.) 14 Jul 2017 11:24:47
£100m thanks Real.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Pickford 30 mil for an upcoming keeper. De gea the best in the world needs to be 100 mil +.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 11:46:08
Minimum 100 million.

4.) 14 Jul 2017 12:00:42
All depends for all we know there might have been a gentleman's agreement for him to leave made last summer and a figure agreed. That figure then would look cheap by today's prices. Time will tell.

5.) 14 Jul 2017 12:02:45
£60mill+Kroos please thank you.

6.) 14 Jul 2017 12:03:17
Toni Kroos and £60m.

7.) 14 Jul 2017 12:26:33
with no prior agreement in place between us and RM i would say £95mil and make him the most expensive player in the world - for the short term anyway.

8.) 14 Jul 2017 12:30:08
If he wants out it will be hard to stop. But it must be on our terms. Perhaps we could get the opportunity to talk to bale or kroos if jose wants them.
A question i asked on another thread would we need to sign a keeper or would be go work romero and Perriera?

9.) 14 Jul 2017 12:35:17
Easily worth £100m today. Kroos and 60 would be a good return but this isn't footy manager. I'd love us to just stick 2 fingers up to Madrid and tell Mendes he needs to be loyal to us given the recent business we've done with him.

10.) 14 Jul 2017 13:54:08
Haven't we already rejected a 60 million bid.

11.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:41
Don't think so bolger.

12.) 14 Jul 2017 14:31:43
Let's be realistic with the valuation, whilst the money at the minute for outfield players is crazy we are not going to get more than £60/ 70m for DDG. Keepers are important but not valued as highly as strikers.
At the end of last year I thought Mourinho for all his talk would have been happy with DDG going at a good price and starting season with Romero and the pereira who he thinks will be world class in a few years.
If DDG goes Hopefully we start conversations about Bale coming the other way.

13.) 14 Jul 2017 14:42:21
Unfortunately I think it's inevitable that De Gea will end up at Madrid. I've said before that it has the feel of the Fabregas to Barcelona to it and will eventually happen. I just hope we get the maximum amount for him. Jose seems to be getting decent fees for all the outgoings so far. I'd say between £80-90 million and he's yours. Then go after Jack Butland.

14.) 14 Jul 2017 14:46:48
Brad, historically goal scorers command the big fees. But with Liverpool rumoured to be happy to pay £70m million for Keita who's had one season in the bundesliga, why not stick for £100m for the worlds best goal keeper?

15.) 14 Jul 2017 15:09:35
Even if the player wants to go, we don't have to do the deal. It is feasible to hold the player to his contract. DDG seems like a good professional and he's already at one of the biggest clubs in the world with Champions League football.

However, I really rate Romero. I was at OT when he made his debut and I thought then he looked like an accomplished keeper. I have no doubt he would be an excellent number one for us.

If DDG is sold that leaves an interesting conundrum with Perriera. If I was Jose I would be asking myself, if Romero got injured is Perriera ready to step up straight away?

I think as that we need to reset the balance of our relationship with Real Madrid. They need to understand that they cannot just help themselves to any of our players and that if they are not prepared to be reasonable with players we want to buy from them, we are prepared to walk away and find an alternative.

Decided to play a drinking game last night, shot of whiskey every time the mentioned Sanchez's wages, just about saw the opening goal, but don't remember much after that.



20 Jan 2018 14:54:02
A Jose guide to building self confidence in young players, "this Luke Shaw is one of the best left backs in the world. "

Immediately drops him for a 32 year old winger.

1.) 20 Jan 2018 16:17:49
Never mind that. I just put Shaw in my dream team. Cheers, José.

2.) 20 Jan 2018 16:19:16
Or he could be giving him a rest after starting a few games in a row for the first time in ages.

3.) 20 Jan 2018 17:08:12
Yeah, got to rest him up for that big next game against Yeovil.

4.) 20 Jan 2018 18:03:34
SHaw has played 4/ 5 games in quick succession. Managing him well so he doesn’t injure himself.

5.) 20 Jan 2018 18:26:29
José could at least have given me a heads up. That's all I'm asking.

6.) 20 Jan 2018 19:00:48
The game to rest him would be Yeovil, so he's fit for the bigger game against Spurs. Young was available for the first time in 3 games, and went straight back into the starting line-up. That tells me that Shaw is second choice, will get a run out in the cup game, but Young will be back in the side for Spurs.

7.) 20 Jan 2018 20:27:17
he's 22, he should be able to play 4 games in one day never mind over a couple of weeks, Young was solid today though, maybe it was to show Shaw how a professional player can be consistent, though we'd all prefer shaw not to go around Elbowing defenders!

8.) 20 Jan 2018 20:27:17

9.) 20 Jan 2018 22:00:43
We didn’t concede a goal today. Jose’s decision justified. Oh we won again by the way.



16 Jul 2017 11:56:22
"There are standards that you have to keep when you are at Manchester United. That came from the ­manager Sir Alex Ferguson when I went to United and it was then passed down through the dressing room by the likes of Giggsy, Gary Neville and Scholesy.

Over the last few years, it was down to me and Michael Carrick to keep the new players maintaining those ­standards.

That became more difficult over the last few years, with some of the ­players who joined the club. "

Rooney in an interview yesterday, as if he wasn't one of the biggest culprits in letting his own standards drop in recent years.

With all the talk of what a club legend he is, complete lack of class to stick two fingers up at his former teammates.

1.) 16 Jul 2017 12:33:54
Danny you missed the end off .
"There are traditions at United that have to be maintained. It’s become harder, but that’s not my problem any more. I’m just ecstatic to be back at Everton"

Everton player probably time to move on.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 12:44:29
There's no need to have a dig at your former teammates. Especially, when your own standards have gone into free fall.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 13:21:00
The fat scouser has the gall to talk about his teammates's falling standards after the performances he has given in last 3-4 years at utd, glad we got rid of him it was long overdue and this is supposed to be a utd legend according to some.

4.) 16 Jul 2017 13:57:07
Of course he's a legend. He's our record goalscorer of all time. You don't have to like him or even think he's a great player to acknowledge he is a legend.

Of course this is a done to death topic and the definition of legend is so loose as to make it almost pointless to discuss.

So I definitely won't press send on this.

5.) 16 Jul 2017 14:04:48
Lol how many people on here have been posting the same.
The traditions at the club have changed since fergy left imo, we are going out and buying 100 mil players, lost an english core etc .
I think Carrick is the only player left that you could tie in to the fergy neville etc mentality, times and the club have changed .
The winning mentality left and to be honest the squad has underachived.

Rooney has made a lot of comments since he has left praised the fans team mates etc never got a mention on the site for some reason?

Everton player now, so maybe time to move on.

6.) 16 Jul 2017 15:04:50
jred rooney isn't talking traditions though, he isn't complaining about fees or lack of english players, he is calling his ex teammates not good enough, it is not only laughable especially after his own performances but disrespectful of his teammates.

7.) 16 Jul 2017 15:41:51
Common sense
He was asked a question about lukaku and what you needed to be a striker and succeed at United .
He gave a long answer went into a bit of detail said it's not just talent you need but mentality, understand the club, handle the pressure etc.
Explained he was lucky had the class of 92 and explained and talked about the mentality of the dressing room under fergy .

A few websites etc chopped parts of the interview up put a head line on it and used it as click bait .

Fans like your self then get outraged by single sentence in a full interview while ignoring 13 years every cup possible record goal scorer etc etc.
He has said a lot of positive things about the club fans squad, it's very easy to vilify anyone if you want to .

He is a Everton player now tho so maybe time to move on.

8.) 16 Jul 2017 16:00:05
"Over the last few years, it was down to me and Michael Carrick to keep the new players maintaining those ­standards.

That became more difficult over the last few years, with some of the ­players who joined the club. "

These are his direct quotes and if this isn't a dig at his ex teammates then i don't know what is.

9.) 16 Jul 2017 16:17:10
It's very easy to take a comment out of context . Watch the interview .

In fact just read the posts above .
Your hate is very clear.

10.) 16 Jul 2017 16:19:50
Who cares what he said he is an everton player.
You don't expect him to show a bit if class he is latgely poorly educated and he will revert tp type. Its just as well he had scholes carrick etc to keep his standards up or he could have been pictured drunk in a taxi while on club and national duty or pi##ing on the street or in a 3sum with some tramp.
Nothing he does or says now has any relevence to united. Just another ex player same as william prunier . He will say good things and bad things who cares its his perogative.

11.) 16 Jul 2017 16:50:59
People care because it's another chance to have a go .
And on this page some never miss the chance to slag certain players off

Everton player now maybe time to move on .

12.) 16 Jul 2017 17:06:23
Scholes is a good example of an ex player who has had a lot to say about the standard of the united team as well as people like Ferdinand Neville etc all great players fondly remembered by most fans . Even if they are just ex players like purneier .
At least scholes waited until he left club, only kean could slag them off on the club's own channel while he was still at the club .
Could be an arse kean but another important part of united history, so many great memories who could forget that CL semi final against juve .
It's games like that that make supporting a club worth while.

13.) 16 Jul 2017 20:54:57
You'll never give up Jared 😂😂.



29 Jun 2017 12:25:06
Any truth in the rumour that clubs are looking to buy and sell players that supporters don't want to be bought and sold? It's all over the media at the moment, and it's making me very worried. Hopefully it won't be the same as last summer when the same thing happened.

1.) 29 Jun 2017 12:51:43
I've heard that a helpline is being set up for anxious fans to call.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 12:59:23
i think i might need that number, i have drawn up a list of players and Jose doesn't seem to be interested in any of them, is he mad, surely I know better than him who this team needs.

3.) 29 Jun 2017 17:15:27
We should form an orderly queue behind Ronnie.



23 Jun 2017 20:52:20
There are players for sale! Why aren't we buying them?

The papers keep talking about players that other clubs are selling, but we don't buy them. This is getting ridiculous, we could have bought about 100 players by now if we'd buy the players for sale.


1.) 24 Jun 2017 16:45:37
Spot on Danny. Liverpool have bought 2 players that we had no interest in but they were for sale so why weren't we in there making offers? It's a disgrace.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 19:21:14
Will Hughes today, sold for less than 10m AJH. 10m! That's about a tenth of a Pogba, and we didn't buy him. Disgraceful, are we even a football club anymore?

3.) 24 Jun 2017 21:36:35
At the risk of being sensible, I always liked Will Hughes, another talent who injury seemed to stifle, shame as he like a real prospect.

4.) 25 Jun 2017 12:26:14
He did look like a prospect, will have a good opportunity to make the step up with Watford.

Now enough with this sensible nonsense. WE STILL HAVEN'T SIGNED PLAYERS.

As far as I'm aware, they don't have an option on the player, PSG have made a commitment to purchase Mbappe next summer.

{Ed001's Note - that was what held up the deal happening is that Monaco wanted a guarantee they would sign him for the agreed price at the end of the loan or they would not agree to loan him.}

That's just stupid.

Rio and Vidic have been replaced by Bailey and Lindihop (one excellent defender and one with a lot to prove)

Scholes and Carrick - Pogba and Matic (most expensive cm on the planet and a proven EPL winner.

Rooney Tevez Ronaldo - Sanchez Lukaku Martial (perhaps not the same league, but a potentially top class attacking trio by any standards) .

We have some top class players, but the performances aren't where they should be. However, making false equivalences to previous teams is just a bit sad.

Today was poor. Pogba shouldn't have been playing if he wasn't 100%. Rotating Shaw and Young is silly. Smalling is an absolute liability, could have been done for a penalty, and his stupid dive led to the goal. Not sure why Lindihop or Rojo aren't given the nod ahead of him.

Biggest issue is not being clinical enough. Final pass today was very poor, and on the few occasions we did get through the finishing wasn't good enough. With Sanchez we should be kicking on and trying to get close to City, but in current form I'm not convinced we will stay ahead of Spurs and City. Something doesn't seem right, and we have gone backwards since the start of the season.

I'd prefer to keep the EPL as it is, but the reality is that a breakaway league will happen sooner or later. There's too much money to be made from a euro super league, and trying to stop it, over the long term, is like trying to hold back the tide with a fishing net.

Just talked to him, said he's going to play 5 man defence Maccy Tommy, Matic and Jessi in mid, with Lukaku and Ibra up top. Young in goal.
