Ed is Griezmann leaving this summer?

I thought he was leaving in winter 2020 and Is Barcelona his most likely destination? .

Singh

{Ed004's Note - Looks like he will complete his move to Barca sooner than expected}


1.) 14 May 2019 22:28:38
Ahh thanks ed. Think me missed the boat on him a few years ago.


2.) 14 May 2019 22:53:58
Lucas hernandez has left, rodri looks like he's going to city and now griezmann as well as godin and filipe luis.

If there is one team that plays with the fight and intensity most fans want united to play with its atletico, we should have been involved for these players in all honestly (maybe not filipe luis) . Maybe they are above our level now as we need to look at the tier below.


3.) 15 May 2019 07:50:15
Godin is 33 nearly 34.


4.) 15 May 2019 08:57:49
I think we probably dodged a bullet with Griezmann a couple of summers ago. I get the feeling if he had come then he’d just be another on our list of players to offload this summer. For all his goals, his attitude stinks. The whole documentary thing last summer now this announcement yesterday, he’s another circus act who thinks he’s above playing football.


 

 

06 May 2019 20:53:35
Who would be interested in Sane and just how good do you guys think he is?

I don't think he is too happy at City and he could well be on the move soon.

Singh

1.) 06 May 2019 21:01:48
I think he’s a cracking player Singh, however I think we need a right winger as we have lots who can play on the left. If martial was too go and sane was available I would gladly bring him in.


2.) 06 May 2019 21:48:05
Brilliant player. Never going to happen.


3.) 06 May 2019 21:50:46
Id sell Martial and Sanchez to go for him.


4.) 07 May 2019 07:11:01
He’d be our best player, he’s got everything needed to Reach the very top.


5.) 07 May 2019 11:13:18
Given how pep was barking at him to run not walk, he would be treated the same as martial is.

He would also fail with the same issues that all our attackers suffer from, we are unable to get them the ball because we play out from the back like a poor mans wimbledon from the 90s.


6.) 07 May 2019 16:59:42
Never happen, we are fishing in the wrong pond now. If he came to us over bayern real barce, i would shout mercenary.


7.) 13 May 2019 07:08:24
He's a bit of a bel end anyway, got enough of them.


 

 

06 Mar 2019 16:32:34
Ed,

I know we are after Costa as a RW target. Could you please share if possible, who are we targeting for the the AM position? .

Singh

{Ed002's Note - Jaoa Felix as I have explained before.}


1.) 06 Mar 2019 17:06:43
Oh yes i forgot his name. Thanks Ed.


2.) 07 Mar 2019 04:39:16
I hope Hirving Lozano is another RW who is still of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


 

 

19 Nov 2018 11:59:43
Ed i hope you are well,

Are we interested in signing a midfielder in january?

There are lots of reports that we are going to bid for Lorenzo Pellegrini in january.

Anyways.

Singh

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timings of transfers. Clubs are often reluctant to sell in January as they cannot find replacements and certainlt Roma will not want to sell Lorenzo Pellegrini. But as I have said, Manchester United are looking again at LP who has been on the list since last January but he was well down the list of options available although remained of interest - but as they have failed to sign who Mr Mourinho has wanted he is again an option.}


1.) 19 Nov 2018 12:31:30
Sorry Ed002, Was Tony Kroos the preferred option by Mourinho?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death - why do I keep getting the same questions? Read the posts, use the search engine.}


2.) 19 Nov 2018 13:03:10
with the new champions league rule changes taking effect, I am sure we will see more transfer activity in January.


3.) 19 Nov 2018 12:40:44
Thanks Ed - is there any names you can give for a right sided midfielder?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Fred plays on the right of midfield if desired but most CM players are adaptable enough. The club do not seem to be attempting to look for specifically RM players.}


4.) 19 Nov 2018 13:26:30
Thanks ED. I don't think he will be a sensible choice as he is very inexperienced but you just never know how it work out if we sign him.


5.) 19 Nov 2018 15:16:53
Apologies Ed, meant more right sided forwards?

{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is an immediate priority right now Fresh. CB remains the priority.}


6.) 19 Nov 2018 17:37:40
wasted trip for Jose going to Switzerland than if he went to see Toby Alderweireld.


7.) 20 Nov 2018 10:06:22
Maybe Nico Elvedi ;)


 

 

13 Oct 2018 13:11:13
Ed any interest in lucas hernandez of atletico?

Singh

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is far from new interest.}


1.) 13 Oct 2018 13:21:44
Cheers ed. Have we ended our interest in alderwereld?

{Ed002's Note - The club were unwilling to try to complete a deal in the summer so interest is elsewhere. But LH would not be of interest as a CB.}


2.) 13 Oct 2018 13:32:26
Would skrinar be one of the first choices as a cb as he looks like a very good cb.

{Ed002's Note - Most certainly but much will depend on whether pne faction of the press and the toxics get their way.
Milan Skriniar (CB) Financial demands of Inter are excessive and the said they will sell for €75M in the Summer of 2018 - expect that price to be well over €100M now but Manchester United remain very keen and may be able to negotiate
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) financial viable and a target from his time at Chelsea
Rúben Dias (CB) Manchester United's manager has held a discussion with the player's agent
Toby Alderweireld (CB) Chances of him joining remain as they were - it will be difficult
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let him leave for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme – so might be possible but the price could be through the roof.}


3.) 13 Oct 2018 14:57:32
Thanks ed. Some interesting choices and they all look like top up and coming defenders apart from Toby as he is very experienced.


4.) 13 Oct 2018 14:57:46
Is it more reasonable to consider josé was at the serbia game to look at milenkovic as opposed milinkovic-savic?

{Ed002's Note - I would not make such assumptions. Perhaps he is able to look at two players at the same time?}


5.) 13 Oct 2018 15:30:43
the man knows no bounds!


6.) 14 Oct 2018 10:59:57
Fantastic info Ed002, thank you! As mentioned above, looks like we’re considering quality defenders.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously these are the targets of the incumbant one.}


7.) 14 Oct 2018 11:51:09
Great Info ed would the main targets for Jan match those as the summer? right wing central mid and CB? Maybe a right back could now be added with Valencia causing problems. I know all is dependent on Jose still being manager and won't be easy in January.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about the timing of transfers, particularly in January. You likely have unrealistic expectations for January and the club had no interest in going after many of the players that had previously been identified as potions. The club has however continued to look at players, but these are players that were primarily identified to meet the brief that Mr Mourinho identified. Additionally much will depend on who leaves.}


8.) 14 Oct 2018 10:59:57
Fantastic info Ed002, thank you! As mentioned above, looks like we’re considering quality defenders.

{Ed002's Note - This would be entirely dependent on the incumbent manager staying of course.}

Hi Ed,

I hope you are okay but i just had a question for you.

.............

Singh

{Ed002's Note - Wrong page.}


 

 

31 May 2019 12:30:26
Ed,

If Lukaku leaves, Is there a player we would look to replace him with and do you know who would that be? .

Singh

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware right now.}


1.) 31 May 2019 13:46:35
Would be very worrying if we don't bring in a back up striker to rashford. I don't think he's ready to lead the line alone for us.


2.) 31 May 2019 15:06:53
Thanks Ed.


3.) 31 May 2019 15:51:18
It depends on how we are going to line up. If we play with one striker then Rashford, Martial and Greenwood means we have enough players to cover. Although you could argue wether those players are good enough or ready.

When we talk about having to replace a player we should look at the contribution they made last season.

I would argue that you could sell/ release Valencia, Darmian, Rojo and Grant without replacing them as none had any impact for us last season. You could argue that Mata and Sanchez didn't have much if any impact so wouldn't need replacing.

Although if the club want to move forward then it's not replacing players who had minimal impact that's needed but an upgrade on those who played often but didn't impact the team.


4.) 31 May 2019 15:56:08
I am sure they will have plans for bringing someone else in but they may also like the idea of Radhford, Martial and Greenwood competing for the front position whether as a 1 or a 2.
Whichever is the scenario I want us to energetic up front.


5.) 31 May 2019 16:46:35
Shappy,

So you would be happy with Rashford or Martial leading the line next year?

Lukaku is a better striker currently then both Rashford or Martial but he is just not a striker that is suited to us as he lacks overall gameplay and loses the ball far too often.

I wouldn't want Lukaku in the team but i would be against just havin Rashford or Martial leading the line as i don't think they are fully ready or they might just not be good enough.

Anyways let's see what happens.

Rashfords problem. is he takes too many shots and just tries doing everything on his own.

Martial takes fewer chances but looks like a lazy player that doesn't give his all.

I don't think any of these two fill me with confidence.


6.) 31 May 2019 20:30:46
Greenwood isn't ready and needs to be eased in. Rashford is inconsistent and Martial I've given up on. We would need another.


7.) 31 May 2019 22:09:02
Singh, you will never know if they are either good enough or fully ready if you don't give them a full chance.

What do we have to lose? there's hardly any high stakes champions league games next season where rashford, greenwood or martial will get exposed.

Although the recent tribute to the 90’s and fergies time is getting tiresome, one idea that will never old is giving young players a chance.

Factor in that we have so many other areas to strengthen, striker is the least of our worries.


8.) 31 May 2019 22:25:04
No I'm all for giving youth a chance. But say one of them has a serious injury. We're down to two. What then.


9.) 31 May 2019 22:42:52
Oles preferred formation seems to be 4-3-3, that leaves two to battle it out for that central striker spot.

We could actually sign some wingers to play on the wing for once. That would be a novel idea.


10.) 31 May 2019 22:43:39
Its a gamble going with Rash and Martial. as our main strikers but you guys could be right you never know what they will produce.


I think if are going to go with Radh and Martial as our main striekrs then we definitely need a goal scoring midfielder like Fernandes and he might turn out to be a brilliant signing for us if we manage to sign him.


11.) 31 May 2019 23:05:20
Play Sanchez up top.


12.) 31 May 2019 23:11:12
We have a proven 20+ scorer in our ranks in Sanchez. However everyone is a lost cause on this site. So dull.


13.) 31 May 2019 23:39:57
Eric, Sanchez is not the answer he is never going to score 20 goals for us let alone in 1 season.


14.) 01 Jun 2019 01:24:51
Be great to get an experienced striker in that our younger strikers Rashford, Greenwood and Martial (hard to even class as young now, should really be doing the business regularly) could learn from while also taking the burden off them. Maybe a Cavani or someone along them lines.


15.) 01 Jun 2019 06:54:10
Hard to class them as young? Greenwood is 17, Rashford is 21, Martial is 23. Get a grip.


16.) 01 Jun 2019 09:33:15
Apparently if Lukaku goes ole wants to add height up front. We all agree we need an older experienced player preferably premier league proven.

Woodwork here's this he'll sign Crouch.


17.) 01 Jun 2019 09:55:50
If we bring in new players on the wings then we would not necessarily need an additional CF.

With a new quality RB and RW plus someone at LW then Martial, Rashford and Greenwood would be enough for one season at least.

If they all get a reasonable amount of game time then in 12 months time it would be clear if we needed a new striker and if Martial needed to be sold etc

Ole has clearly stated that the rebuild will take 2/ 3 seasons.
We need a top quality CB and RB so that we defend better and have balance on both sides.

If Pogba also leaves and we bring in some CM and AM players then we have a real chance of improvement next season.


18.) 01 Jun 2019 10:20:17
Having a strike force of Rashford, Martial and Greenwood wouldn't be my ideal situation for next season. But if we play a single striker system then we have enough players as three is the most you would want.

I would have concerns over whether Rashford and Martial are ready to carry the scoring burden, yet unless given the chance we will never know.

In an ideal world Martial would be replaced as well. But then we can't replace 15-18 players in one window which is what we need. So we will have to accept that we will have some players here next season we would rather have replaced.

On the whole I think Martial fits better into what Ole wants than Lukaku. So if one of them have to remain next season it's better if it's Martial.

{Ed004's Note - Hoping for Felix and James myself. Feel like Rashford and Felix can both play as the striker, Lingard and James can cover right side while Martial would be the main man on the left they can all play there. Greenwood would then have a proper chance of breaking into the side as well. If Fernandes rumours are true, the you would expect him and Pogba to contribute goals from midfield}


19.) 01 Jun 2019 13:12:19
The worrying thing is i think we are not signing a cb this year and are deciding to give Smalling and co another chance which will be a huge mistake.

There is also a report that Solsjaer is against digning a cb but Woodeard wants Toby because he has a small release clause.


 

 

07 May 2019 12:30:33
Ed,

Are we looking at Dybala after missing out on Fernandes?

Singh

{Ed002's Note - All of Mr Mourinho's targets remain of interest to the club.}


1.) 07 May 2019 12:43:28
Imagine signing his targets after sacking him. What on earth is going on!


2.) 07 May 2019 14:14:55

So tragic, a devastating event.


 

 

08 Feb 2019 12:05:09
Jones signing a new contract. He is good defender but just isn't fit enough i hope qe have checked his knees before giving him a new contract.

Singh

1.) 08 Feb 2019 12:56:22
I don't think its the end of the world, out of him, Smalling and Rojo he is the best defender. That might not be saying much, but if we are to keep one based on ability Jones is the obvious pick.

It's his fitness that is the problem. But if we promote Tuanzebe next season and sign one new CB, while selling Smalling and Rojo that would give us a choice of 5. Which should be fine even if Jones does get injured brushing his teeth.

He also helps with our "homegrown" quota.


2.) 08 Feb 2019 13:37:16
Personally would keep smalling over him. Smalling has scored some vital goes and for me is the best out the 3. Distribution can be poor but his strength and aerial ability is decent for a backup.


3.) 08 Feb 2019 13:46:48
I think its a emotional decision to give him a mew contract because he is home grown. He has all the talent but just isn't fit enough.


4.) 08 Feb 2019 14:49:32
I absolutely would not keep Smalling next season. With the EPL ready to introduce VAR Smalling would be giving away at least one penalty every week. He just can't defend without holding on to players.

Once VAR is introduced he will have nowhere to hide. Get rid before we see his value nose dive.


5.) 08 Feb 2019 15:21:24
I was about to say we should sell Smalling to Liverpool next season and see how many points he'd cost them with VAR.

May 2020 and i bet Ole will be sacked by then. wouldn't these players look at the bigger picture and think to themselves that if the manager isn't good then he won't last long.

Interesting times ahead.

Dont know how good Diop is but i just hope we don't spend 60 mil plus on Maguire. He will be another Jones and Smalling but a expensive version.

Koulibaly will be the one for me and i think he would have the same type of effect as Van Dijk. I think De ligt will be more suited to City or Barcelona and i don't know much about Romanagli.

Huge expensive mistake if we sign him. If you think signing Sanchez was a mistake then this is even a bigger mistake.

Not worth the 70 mill and i would rather go with Jones and Smalling then sign this guy as he is younger version of Jones and Smalling.
