Aparantly the dreaded man Utd delagation are in Madrid conducting talks for Saul niguez!

1.) 11 Jan 2016 19:09:06
He has a €24m buyout clause so if we've sent the right people then this rumour could have legs in it.

2.) 11 Jan 2016 19:09:49
I have no idea who he is and where he plays or how good he is. Can other posters enlighten me as to whether he is Utd material and is he likely to be the best available for his position.

3.) 11 Jan 2016 20:48:34
Along with Gerard Deulofeu, Oliver Torres, Hectorin Bellorin and Jose Luis Gaya - he looks like one of the next great Spanish players.

When I've watched him play he's seemed solid enough but there's still a lot of learning to be done. I can't imagine him making an immediate impact and wonder where he would fit as he's primarily a defensive minded midfielder.

That said I do think he'd be a good long term signing if managed correctly.

4.) 11 Jan 2016 21:21:55
Well Ed said she doubts a move is viable this window, maybe the summer unless something has changed in the last couple days.

5.) 11 Jan 2016 21:33:28
Oliver torres now there's a player. Wonder if he has a buyout price €30mill last summer 😆😆.

6.) 11 Jan 2016 19:27:36
Primarily a Central Midfielder, can also be deployed as a defensive midfielder or left wing?

He likes to get forward though?

7.) 11 Jan 2016 19:36:45
He's a midfielder who is equally adept playing as a box-to-box as he is playing defensive midfield. One of the most highly thought upcoming players in Spain. Makes sense with Fellaini likely to be moved on and Carrick probably retiring.

8.) 11 Jan 2016 23:55:59
As there are no comments from any of the Eds so far - I'm thinking that there are no legs in this.
Would he partner Schneiderlin or be competition for that place? would this mean that Felliani is OK for transfer?

9.) 12 Jan 2016 05:29:41
Hearing rumours about Carrick thinking of retiring at the end of the season, maybe discussed it with Van Gaal so he can look for replacements.

10.) 12 Jan 2016 13:58:14
Other players to be consider instead;

Sergi Darder
Stefano Sturaro
Marcelo Brozovic

Thoughts guys?

11.) 12 Jan 2016 16:59:25
You have way to much time on your hands dude.

12.) 12 Jan 2016 18:48:51
Saul has said he his committing his future to Atletico .
Think back a year or so ago when Woodward was courting Van Gaal when Moyes was in charge, and using Van Persie to help get him into the managers hot seat .
Why oh why aren't we repaying the favour and sacking van gaal and getting Jose in?
Hurts me to say I can't stand watching the team anymore and pray they lose games, so they can get rid of that bafoon we have as a manager.

13.) 12 Jan 2016 19:18:51

Massive brain injury, coma for months, I know, explains a lot eh!

So yeah, time on my hands I do have!

Ronnie 😇.

14.) 13 Jan 2016 12:50:29
We need a proven classy Central Defender and Central Midfielder.
And while there at get rid of that useless excuse of a footballer they call Fellaini. Absolutely embarrassing!

15.) 15 Jan 2016 08:31:57
Saul won't leave Atletico, he not for sale and is part of their long term project.



21 Jun 2015 22:02:14
Just thought I'd share this with you guys!! I've had a very interesting weekend.
I have a couple of contacts who have given me little snippets!!.
Number 1! ( an ex Utd footballer and international manager, still works for Utd! Related through marrage!)
He says we are working on a Stella signing but it's very complicated!
Number 2! ( an ex Utd trainee ( post class of 92 era) now a football agent with worldwide contacts and massive contacts inside Utd. I've known him for 20 years, he's an old school friend)
We tried signing otamendi in August 2014 but was too complicated! Looking likely he will sign.
Utd want cech to replace de gea but talks are still going on for de gea to sign his Utd contract( the delay though could allow arsenal to sign Cech. ( cechs choice would be to join Utd)
Number 3!! ( ex Utd international player who still loves Utd and has a massive influence within all his squads. I worked with him but class him as a mate.
He said, pogba, varane, lacazette definately no go's for Utd. But benzema and Vidal are strong possibilities. Talks have began but again complicated!
Number 2 also said if we end up losing de gea and Cech has already gone to arsenal it's going to cost us a lot of money for lloris!

1.) 21 Jun 2015 23:24:27
Nothing new gman,just what most papers are saying,cech looks like his arsenal bound.dont think we will sign Vidal or benzema,hope I'm wrong,I think we will go after stones,Coleman,Kane,Schneiderlin,schweinstieger

2.) 22 Jun 2015 07:25:22
I'll say what Leahy meant to say, thanks for the information gman, well done even if there might not be anything new. I hope Otamendi is signed, good strong, dynamic defender! Benzema is the dream, what a terrific signing that would be but I think that's going to be a drawn out saga. if you get any more updates please do tell, much appreciated!!

3.) 22 Jun 2015 08:38:13
So we are looking at Cech, Otamendi, Vidal and Benzema. If we can sign those 4 a RB and player to cover for carrick that would be some transfer window.

4.) 22 Jun 2015 10:44:14
Your fine angelred,I can speak my own mind,never said there was anything wrong with gmans post,and if you read it again I said I hope I'm wrong

5.) 22 Jun 2015 12:18:26
I'd much rather see Cech lining up for you guys next season than for Arsenal, so I really hope you're right Gman! Besides, for them he'd be a significant upgrade whilst you've already got a top level goalkeeper so that'd definitely make it easier to take!

6.) 22 Jun 2015 13:04:59
We could have had Cech finalised days ago however recently de gea is that undecided that more efforts were put into keeping him! ( we could of got Cech but then definately lost de gea, we could end up keeping de gea which will keep everyone happy , me included!) just hope we don't lose out on Cech , lose de gea then are scrambling about at the last minute. My contact number 2 is adamant it'll be de gea or Cech as our number 1 next season!

7.) 22 Jun 2015 13:17:19
Leahy12 , I've not read a newspaper for over 5 years ( just live off sky news or sky sports news!! Just as bad I know ha! Ha!)
I found this website about 2 years ago now and just used to read it for fun , I do actually know check it at least once a day ( it's a credit to the eds well done!)
Every now and then I'll either make a comment but it it very rarely I make a post! I'm a sadist I think just waiting every day thinking today will be the day Utd announce sonething!! Ha! Ha!
When I do get info I'll try and share it !! I spoke to contact number 2 after we had signed rojo and it was then he said we are looking at otamendi too!! The purchase at the time was too complicated but looks like it'll be done this summer!!
Have a good day mate and I'll try and share whenever I can pal!

8.) 22 Jun 2015 13:35:25
Sorry guys meant to say masachist!! I'd never purposely inflict pain on you guys!! Honest!! Ha! Ha!

9.) 22 Jun 2015 15:45:00
Do that gman,post away pal and have a good day,we might have someone signed up in the next 2 weeks

10.) 22 Jun 2015 16:50:38
Was only joking leahy, but looks like cech has gone to arsenal so hopefully de gea stays

11.) 22 Jun 2015 17:39:15
We might get another season out of ddg,if he was going surely Real Madrid would have it announced by now.they usually mouth off that their player will be on his way,would be nice if we signed him with a buy out clause in his contract,be nice to get one over Real Madrid play them at their own game



16 Jun 2015 21:04:51
A near cert is ddg has gone and Cech is our no 1 replacement! Cech wants to come too! He has never said he wants to stay in london( Spurs or arsenal) he actually wants to stay in the UK so not to unsettle his children. They will stay in London ( whilst he is in Manchester) I live in worsley ( Manchester) and have spoken to a local agent(known him for over 20 years, I went to school with him) he has connections worldwide aswel as massive Utd connections.It's not 100% done but it's what Utd and Cech want!

1.) 16 Jun 2015 21:23:30
i already think we have our replacement in valdez, for some reason i just think we will use the money we get from dea gea to strenthern elsewhere.

valdes is still a very good keeper and the last game of the season he proved he still has very good reactions and is still a good keeper.

2.) 16 Jun 2015 21:41:58
I agree about Valdes. I've always rated him, just heard we are after Cech!! I wouldn't be unhappy with Valdes as number 1 with one of our youngsters being promoted to number 2.

3.) 16 Jun 2015 22:41:00
gman - what kind of discussions have we had?

IE have we spoken to his agent?, chelsea?, jose?

4.) 17 Jun 2015 09:18:07
We've spoke with his agent/ representatives!

5.) 17 Jun 2015 10:21:13
I think we would all be happy if this was true GMan, however I just can't see it.
I think he actually wants Arsenal move.
I also think we will either stick with Valdes or go for someone like Cilleson who may be willing to come in and fight for 1st choice even if not 1st choice straight away.

6.) 17 Jun 2015 11:04:18
We apparently enquired a few weeks ago to whether cech would be interested should de gea leave. The response was positive. Like I said it's not 100% but I was told he would prefer us to arsenal ( not the other way round). But this is football ( greavsie said its a funny old game) so anything can happen.

7.) 17 Jun 2015 12:18:02
Completely disagree about Valdez.
I think Bob Wilson in his 70s would have looked good at Barcelona over the past 10 years because the team in front of him were that good.
Sorry but in my opinion Valdez is nothing more than a shot stopper and always has been.
We definitely need a new keeper if DDG goes.
I agree with Cech, he would be a superb signing for us but is Cech decides to stay in London and go to Arsenal then we have to go for Asmir Begovic at Stoke who would be a snip rather than paying ridiculous money to that idiot Daniel Levy at Spurs.

8.) 17 Jun 2015 13:17:34
i persoinally think we should be getting bernd leno he is young and amazing or yann sommer tbh another very good keeper.

i think valdes has always been over rated yes he is a good shot stopper but he has made a lot of errors when playing for barcelona and isn't the most assured.

would worry me if he is our no.1 and our defence don't improve

9.) 17 Jun 2015 14:11:33
I personally think we should wait and see what happens with DDG first. United have had and successfully replaced world class keepers twice in the last 16 years. With LVG's experience I'm sure that, if DDG leaves, we'll be just fine.

10.) 17 Jun 2015 18:53:59
I'd like to see Jan Oblak or Jasper Cillessen? Although Yann Sommer and Bernd Leno would also good? Basically, any of the 4! I think our goalkeeping coach worked wonders with De Gea, and I think he'll do the same with whoever comes in! From outside looking in, our defence will be much improved too taking that, we'll be set!

11.) 17 Jun 2015 18:57:18
If de he's goes we should go all out for Lloris! We need a decent, fit GK to slot in, having PL experience is a bonus.

12.) 17 Jun 2015 21:05:16
I personally think Begovic is a great shout very good all round gk with loads of prem experience meant to have a buy out clause of 8m if ECL team make an offer so also buy Leno will be a top class gk



15 May 2015 12:36:12
One for the eds!! Do you know if we will be one of the clubs taking to petr cech? Many thanks

{Ed004's Note - We aren't}

1.) 15 May 2015 13:25:48
Cheers pal. I know arsenal and Liverpool will more than likely be in talks but wondered with the uncertainty around de gea signing a new contract , if it would make us put a contingency in place! Thanks again

2.) 15 May 2015 17:19:54
Gman if I had to guess then I would assume valdes is the contingency



22 Apr 2015 09:44:14
Griezmann mentioned today ( in telegraph I think) a top player who I'm sure we would be interested in should he be made available. Is there any interest from us or elsewhere?

{Ed002's Note - Griezmann only moved last summer, and Atletico has no intention of selling. Arsenal and Chelsea and Manchester United previously looked at the player (when he was at Real Sociedad). Whilst Griezmann has said on a number of occasions that he has no plans to leave Spain anytime soon, both PSG and Bayern Munich would be very interested if he became available.}

1.) 22 Apr 2015 16:56:28
He said his name is pronounced the spanish way? he dreams in spanish? and talks to his dog in spanish. Something tells me he won't be leaving Atletico anytime soon.

Depay and griezzman to be our robben and ribery?????



19 Aug 2015 13:34:22
So Chelsea have now turned their attention to pedro!!!
Looks like they didn't want to pay the money needed for griezzman ( who in my opinion is an all round better player)
Wonder if utd are going to bid for griezzman now!!



21 Jul 2015 13:43:18
So we are after a new striker, a surprise name not linked before!
We do we all think it could be?
I'll go for theo Walcott.

1.) 21 Jul 2015 15:00:48
Griezmann or Reus I think I will go for. No one else seems realistic.

2.) 21 Jul 2015 15:11:48
I still think the new striker is Depay and the new signng is a winger.

3.) 21 Jul 2015 15:46:07
Mariusz Stępiński



13 Jul 2015 20:35:21
Saido berahino!! What do you guys think?
We've shown interest in the past, he's got rid of aidy ward and he's in the USA too!! He would be a great signing if his head is in the right place!

1.) 13 Jul 2015 21:11:13
Are you looking for the pool site?

2.) 13 Jul 2015 23:21:02
Think he would be a good signing happy to play second fiddle to Rooney and fast and a good finisher all day for me



24 Jun 2015 20:15:57
Cheers 001!! Nothing surprises me in football nowadays though. I'll keep a look out for Rosales!!

{Ed001's Note - I don't know if there are any work permit issues or anything that might affect a deal, it was pure chance I found out about him. I was actually talking about how few decent right backs there were with someone and he told me to keep an eye on Rosales as United are watching him. I have not watched Malaga play, but he had looked decent in the Copa. The person I spoke to had recommended him as a Clyne alternative to Liverpool and Man Utd but he believes only United are having a look right now. No idea if they will move for him, that will be down to LVG to decide when he has had a good look at the scouting reports. It does seem there are very few options around for the position though, so it is entirely possible he could be chosen.}

1.) 24 Jun 2015 20:53:11
I agree. I just wouldn't be surprised if he keeps it as it is!

This is going to go on till the last day of the transfer window. Utd have a contingency in place if it does, I think it's paying oblak's release clause!! Could one of the eds confirm if they know of a release clause in lloris's contract too, I've been told that it also includes one.
