Eds is there any truth we are looking at the lille keeper Mike Maignan as a possible de gea replacement? Also what do you think the likelyhood de Gea will leave this summer?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Manchester United asked for a price knowning that Lille have identified a replacement already - he is one of a number of players they have done this with. (2) He wants out and I expect the club have decided not to block it.}

1.) 04 Jun 2019 09:17:51
Hi Ed002.
In the earlier update you had said that United had looked into Ahmadou Dia who is one for the future.
So if De Gea is allowed to leave this summer, do you expect United to promote Romero/ Grant/ Henderson as first choice
Or, are they looking for a keeper from top European sides?

{Ed002's Note - I have just answered that MU are looking at GKs.}

2.) 04 Jun 2019 13:40:04
Good decision by the player for not blocking someone that wants out of the club and he has given quite a lot to the club.

3.) 04 Jun 2019 10:50:05
Thanks a lot Ed much appreciated.

4.) 04 Jun 2019 12:01:50
Is the interest in Maddison genuine Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There is plenty of interest from clubs but I doubt Leicester will sell at anything less than a ridiculous fee.}

5.) 04 Jun 2019 10:15:01
Sorry Ed. I thought you would namelist more GK targets.

Looks like this will be one of United's biggest ever rebuild in recent history.
Integrating the new players will be key aspect next season.

{Ed002's Note - Jasper Cillessen (G)
Ahmadou Dia (G) one for the future - there has been a meeting but nothing came of it
Berke Ozer (G) one for the future
Kaylor Navas (G) now available but heading elsewhere
Andre Onana (G) will challenge Barcelona for a deal
Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) €75M asking price is seen as excessive

6.) 04 Jun 2019 18:04:14
Thanks Ed :)
Donnarumma would be my personal choice out of the above list.
But it will be a huge task replacing someone of the caliber of De Gea.

{Ed002's Note - He nearly moved to England last year but it was called off - I am not sure that a loss risky option might not be best. Or MU may opt to block de Gea leaving and wait until next year.}

7.) 04 Jun 2019 21:34:34
Donnarumma isn’t the keeper we need at all, not unless OLG wants a poor shot stopped who is decent with distribution. Check out my recent post re: GKs United should consider if De Gea goes, there are far better options.

8.) 04 Jun 2019 19:35:02
Interesting to read that we will challenge to sign Onana if I’ve read that right.

{Ed002's Note - I think he would be the pick.}

9.) 05 Jun 2019 04:34:39
I believe at just 20, Donnarumma has massive scope for improvement
and at 6 foot 5, he will be well suited to the physical demands of English football.



22 May 2019 21:38:01
Eds is there any substance to the strootman rumours? I remember he looked pretty decent a few year back and we had interest in him, but has also struggled with injuries. Has anybody seen him play over the last few seasons? And if so what are your thoughts on us signing him?

{Ed004's Note - i highly doubt there is anything in the links}

1.) 22 May 2019 22:25:39
Matic, strootman and rakitic midfield three. That would be a pretty good setup if it was 2014.

2.) 23 May 2019 05:05:06
I would instantly take Rakitic for 3 years. Huge upgrade on Herrera.
He still offers lots of energy and is rarely injured.
He will be an experienced head to guide the young players around him.

3.) 23 May 2019 08:02:33
Totally agree Truereddevil, not sure what people are expecting but we definitely need experienced players mixed with the youngsters if that’s the plan. People will literally moan about anything. “He’s not the exact player I wanted so I’m going to slag him off” seems to be a general theme every summer.

4.) 23 May 2019 08:54:10
If Pogba were to leave I would have no problem with Racatic forming a new midfield with some younger players. If Pogba stays then build around him.
Racatic is a quality player.

5.) 23 May 2019 09:01:03
We don't play the way Barcelona play so rakatic will be in the same situation and when we got bs.

We don't keep and move the ball good enough for players like him to flourish.

If he was in citys team it would make sense but unless we are going to some how learn how to pass a ball and keep possession it makes 0 sense to get him

Strootman was a good player pre breaking his leg it's a shame really because we would have got him back in 04 I think it was.

6.) 23 May 2019 11:10:59
Rakitic looked out his depth against Liverpool. I think he'd struggle with the pace of the game in England. I'd also be against signing him given his personal views.

7.) 23 May 2019 11:17:38
Rakitic is a great player, my concern isn't his age, although I would ideally steer clear of players around 30 who have never played in the EPL. However, my main concern is would he fit how the Ole want's the team to play? He works very well in a possession based set up and if LvG was still our manager he might be an ideal signing.

If Ole wants to play a more pressing/ counter attacking set up then I'm not sure that plays into Rakitic's strengths. He isn't the guy to do much closing down or pressing and he tends to be better at recycling the ball rather than playing that quick pass to break the lines (although it hard to judge as Barcelona don't play that way) .

8.) 23 May 2019 13:45:16
Hang on, are we talking about Rakitic, Racatic or Rakatic?

9.) 23 May 2019 13:50:23
Just read that interview Mort, wow.

10.) 23 May 2019 14:32:10
Ports, he's the new Sneijder/ Schneider etc.

Danny, I know. Its a couple of years ago an he may have changed but I doubt it. Obviously people are entitled to their opinion. But those views aren't acceptable to me. Not for someone who would be representing a club with a diverse fanbase in a diverse country.

11.) 23 May 2019 23:48:28
Where can I find this interview guys?

12.) 23 May 2019 23:58:56
What interview.

{Ed033's Note - The Interview with a Vampire (Tom Cruise) :)

13.) 24 May 2019 06:29:50
Search for Rakitic interview 2012 on google.

14.) 24 May 2019 14:36:59
He says it was taken out of context, but it's hard to see what else he could have meant.



31 Dec 2018 17:10:53
Has anybody else heard that apparently Chelsea have agreed a 45 million fee with dortmund for pulisic? If that's true that he's going at a decent price I think we should put a bid in. He looks like he has a lot of quality from the times I've seen him play, he's still only 20 years old so room for improvement, and he plays on the right, somewhere we have seemed to struggle over the last couple of years.

1.) 31 Dec 2018 17:32:37
I've not seen much of him but he's very well rated from what I've read.

We definitely need a RW but I'd like to see Chong given a chance. I'm surprised he's not been included since Ole's appointment does anybody know if he's been injured?!

2.) 31 Dec 2018 18:29:23
isnt chong a left footed player? i would really like a right footed player storming all the way down and put in some serious good crosses for our strikers or with an eye for goal. i'm not saying Chong should not be given the change, i would love for Ole to start building the next man utd team with some of the players than we have and some youth from our academy, i keep hearing good things about a few of them. let's get back to our ways i'd say.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 18:40:31
Pulisic is not even a regular at Borussia these days.

4.) 31 Dec 2018 20:14:29
He’s not as good as he’s made out to be. Being from the USA had helped hype him up til now. I could be proved wrong but I agree with Remanutd on Chong being the brighter prospect over Pulisic.

5.) 31 Dec 2018 21:58:16
Fits perfectly for the type of player Woodward would like with an influence in the American market. Sancho has taken his place in the team in the past few months. But still a quality player.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 12:31:32
One of the major reason for Pulisic not being first choice at Dortmund any longer is because of his contract situation. Then when Sancho got the chances he took it and made himself a first choice player. As for Ching being "better" prospect than Pulisic, well one has been involved in the senior setup for 2_3 seasons now, the other has hardly made 5 appearances for the senior team. You can't compare these two right now before Ching plays more regularly in the senior sides. We all know looking brilliant in youth setups doesn't always transfer into first team.

7.) 01 Jan 2019 13:02:58
What’s wrong with giving one of our own a run out rather than paying £45m for an unproven American?

8.) 01 Jan 2019 13:52:24
Nothing is wrong with that Eric but we as fans need to stop comparing players all the time specially when the comparisions don't make much sense. In this case, saying Chong is better prospect than Pulisic isn't fair I think. There isn't any thing to suggest Chong won't be good; he might end up being better than Pulisic fair enough but at this moment there can't be any basis to suggest that in my view. One is a budding flower, another is a fruit; you can't say a budding flower will be better when it fruits. (sorry for poor analogy (? ) )



27 Jun 2016 08:27:47
Eds do you think that its is likey mkhitaryan and ibra will sign now? Or just slysports making things seem closer than theybare? thanks.

{Ed004's Note - It is now very likely IMO that both will sign}

1.) 27 Jun 2016 19:49:18
Thanks ed.

2.) 27 Jun 2016 22:39:49
Doubt Draxler will come then, that's a shame.

Not a rumour but has the unlike button been removed?

{Ed002's Note - Only for posters who abused it.}

1.) 18 Jul 2019 21:09:42
erm so some can see it and some cant?

2.) 18 Jul 2019 21:39:52
So what have I done to have it removed?
Can't think of anything.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 22:25:04
But Ed, I also don't think I abused the dis/ unlike button but erm, I may have been trigger-happy 🙌🏽🤣.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 22:28:09
I think Ed002 might have caught a few fish there. 😅.

5.) 18 Jul 2019 23:38:12
😂 wow some people will believe anything.

6.) 18 Jul 2019 23:50:35
I've unliked all the above comments. 👎.

{Ed033's Note - Ah, we've caught the unliker. Book 'em, Danno! :)

7.) 19 Jul 2019 07:16:48
Haha hook and line 🐟.



28 Mar 2019 10:11:33
I'm glad we've announced ole now. Perfect timing, give us another push in the months when we generally find form. I've a feeling a few new contract on the way for DDG and rashford, the only way is up. #GGMU #Olesatthewheel.



27 Feb 2019 17:36:41
I say we start chong and gomes tonight along with sanchez in a front 3. Give these 2 a chance and we could be very pleasantly surprised at what they can offer. I'd say that potentially they can be the replacements for sanchez and lukaku in the summer. Ole will get the job, and we have a manager that will give them their chance and don't have to spend fortunes on attacking players so we have the money to strengthen the defence properly.



08 Feb 2019 21:04:21
Hi eds do any of you have any inside info into the next manager? I personally think if ole gets us into 3rd he deserves the job, but apart from him and pochettino is there any other front runners?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing at this time.}

1.) 08 Feb 2019 21:17:21
Thabks for the quick reply ed002.



13 Nov 2018 18:47:28
Is it just me or do we look like a team that doesn't actually try or put any effort in? I allways have and allways will love this club, but I hate watching us play. It's getting to the point when I would rather enjoy spending time doing other things and not dictating my schedule around united games. I never thought I would say that! I've been in kolkata for 6 weeks with another 4 to go so watching games means staying up late, and I have to say I've fallen asleep more than not.

I don't get how Fred's been written off by some already, he's a good player and given time he will show his worth. It's just taken him a while to settle in.

Good post, I think Loftus cheek is going to be a great player, hopefully lampard gives him a good amount of game time this season, because he could be a key player for England moving forward.

{Ed002's Note - That won't be happening.}

I'd take 100 Mill and pjanic or moise kean, kean looks like he is going to be a beast.

{Ed002's Note - Kean will head eslewhere. MU has no interest in Pjanic and he won;t want to drop down a level. These numbers are stupid.}

I'd be disappointed if it is true captain, the captain surely has to be the voice on the field every game. he should not be getting much game time when you consider Shaw, awb, Dalot should all be ahead of him.

Ed if Pogba was to leave would we look at signing both potentially?
