Ed002, there is some reports in the newspaper this morning that MU are resigned to losing Pogba this summer, has the penny finally dropped and they will be willing to listen to reasonable offers?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot account for what the newspapers are saying or speculating about I am afraid. I have explained the situation as I know it.}

1.) 05 Feb 2020 11:48:31
No worries Ed, thanks for the reply.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 13:48:34
At this point he wouldn't be much of a loss. sell him and strenghten the midfield. Another CM (or 2 depending on the matic situation), RW added to bruno and we look a lot stronger in there.

3.) 05 Feb 2020 14:24:26
Surely by the summer with 1 year left on his deal plus the option of another, a club will meet uniteds asking price which should be lowered and come to an agreement.

4.) 05 Feb 2020 18:08:31
Dsg if we get the money we spent to buy him would be some achievement.

5.) 06 Feb 2020 11:17:22
We will have the usual clubs like Real Madrid and Juventus offering us 40 million plus two of there 30 year old plus players that don't even get a game for them anymore who don't want to leave anyway. I just hope that we tell them f**k off and at least get back the 90 million that we paid for him. If the likes of Maddison or Grealish are now valued at 60-80 million pounds, whether you like Pogba or not he is a better player then both of them therefore we should be getting top dollar for him. That's not to mention the amount of money he will generate off the field as well. I just hope United don't get there pants pulled down just because mardy arse Pogba and is agent are crying for the move. I can't wait to see the back of him and that agent.

6.) 06 Feb 2020 12:29:58
Simo, Pogba won't sell for more than 70m maximum. He hasn't lived up to expectation, wants out, has spent most of the season "injured" and will have a year left on his contract by the summer.

We might have to consider a player plus cash deal, but it needs to be a player we want. I would take a straight swap with Varane, or maybe Jovic plus some cash from Real Madrid, or cash plus one of Demiral or Bernardeschi from Juventus.

7.) 06 Feb 2020 13:34:25
Inter could be a sleeper for Pogba if they have the money. Previous with the manager I think.

8.) 06 Feb 2020 15:02:59
Maybe, but I doubt they do. They spent big in January, especially when you consider wages. With Brozovic, Brella, Sensi and Eriksen they have plenty of quality in midfield.

In the summer I can see them looking for a forward to be back up to Lukaku and Martinez or even a replacement for Martinez. While maybe a centre back might be sought with one eye on Godin getting older.

9.) 06 Feb 2020 19:12:39
I can see Pogba ending up at PSG. He’d fit in with the superstar status that Neymar and Mbappé have there. He would win titles and have CL football guaranteed every year. The owners will want a CL trophy soon and would probably pay the money.
It would be the perfect solution for all parties.

{Ed047's Note - where he can be a bigger dick than he currently is, if that is in fact humanly possible.

10.) 06 Feb 2020 20:16:55
Pretty much yeah.
It seems like Neymar does what he wants there and the owners indulge it.
I can see Pogba being the extra bit of quality they need to win the CL though.

11.) 06 Feb 2020 20:28:54
I may be wrong, he never gives his maximum in a game unless it suits him. We keep getting rubbish info he will do his best for United and he is injured again. The lad is really unlucky, hope he doesn't run down his contract and suffer a really bad injury the day before he leaves on a free. He had been too good a servant for that bad luck to happen.

12.) 07 Feb 2020 08:37:17
If Mmmbop goes to Real Madrid and Neymar goes to Barca, then can see Pogba going to PSG, as they’ll need the marque signing to replace leavers and they’ll also have the money.

13.) 11 Feb 2020 22:55:32
if they offer 30 mill bite there hand off because he is not worth that.



15 Aug 2019 11:27:30

Is there anything new regarding Sanchez leaving?

Much appreciated!


{Ed002's Note - Roma were told he wants to stay in Manchester and have moved on.}

1.) 15 Aug 2019 12:29:15
I'll imagine Sanchez will run his contract down.

2.) 15 Aug 2019 13:13:08
Thanks for the reply Ed.

Have a great day!

3.) 15 Aug 2019 16:13:43
Hatter that'll be the most effective running he manages in his time here.

4.) 15 Aug 2019 17:10:31


5.) 15 Aug 2019 19:20:05
Let’s see what happens. Hopefully OGS can get a tune out of him.

6.) 15 Aug 2019 21:33:30
Eric is Ole going to put a piano in the canteen?

7.) 16 Aug 2019 00:24:29
Let's give Sanchez a chance. He had a rubbish season last year but maybe I'd we get behind him he might turn things around. Let's be honest he was a really good player at Arsenal and most of us were delighted when he signed.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 07:09:19
Hrs had chances and he's only going to decline from here.

9.) 16 Aug 2019 07:24:01
Salford what has he done in a United shirt to warrant another chance?

Jesse is ahead of him and now arguably James and Greenwood too. James has already achieved 33% of what Sanchez has achieved. Difference is James did it in 20 minutes whereas Sanchez has had 18 months.

If he was serious about turning things around at United he should’ve pulled out of that international tournament to focus on his fitness and getting ready to claim his place in the team. But instead he came back injured and still isn’t match fit. You can’t keep giving chances to someone who isn’t willing to make it work for himself.

10.) 17 Aug 2019 19:54:42
At this stage, let Sanchez leave on a free looks like the best option for both parties, no?

11.) 17 Aug 2019 21:46:35
According to DiMarzio Inter have agreed terms with Sanchez but not yet with United.

12.) 18 Aug 2019 08:13:56
Widely reported that Inter are in the frame?

13.) 18 Aug 2019 14:34:32
@dev1l In Sanchez's case agreeing his salary is more difficult than agreeing deal with United.

14.) 18 Aug 2019 15:08:18
The proposed agreement apparently consists of a loan move for 1 year and option to buy next season set at 15m. While on loan, United will have to pay part of Sanchez salary.
Depends a lot on the amount.

15.) 18 Aug 2019 20:00:50
How about they take him for free now with no £15m to pay next year. We don't pay any more wages and throw Rojo and Darmian in for free. Everyones a winner.

16.) 19 Aug 2019 10:49:58
If we've got to pay some of his wages he should stay and knuckle down. Paying anything for a player to play for someone else is just a joke if you ask me.

17.) 19 Aug 2019 13:13:37
Why is that Damon? We gave Sanchez a massive contract.

It makes financial sense to subsidise some of the wages if the player moves, as the club he pays for is paying a portion of the wages and we are no longer left with the burden of 100% of his salary.

It also gets him away from the first team so we've not got a miserable player dragging others down.

18.) 19 Aug 2019 16:04:27
Exactly. If he's having rows with people in training that's going to affect the atmosphere. Its best he goes. Hopefully he impresses enough for them to take up the option.

19.) 19 Aug 2019 16:27:50
Well if a player isn't playing for our club and for another team they should be paying his wages. Just shows how bad the club is run to pay ridiculous wages in the first place. hasn't Sanchez had his wages cut by 25% like everybody else? It does seem now though this summer we've taken a different approach and walked away from stupid deals.

20.) 20 Aug 2019 12:13:05
It's not as simple as that Damon. Sanchez has every right to see out the remaining years of his contract on full pay. If we can offload him, and negotiate a deal which costs the club less in the long term, that surely makes more sense than keeping a player on full salary who has no impact on the team.



20 Feb 2019 10:44:43
Hi Ed002

I have had another listen to the Sharkopod and there is noting mentioned about a RB for MU, are MU looking at any RB or is the plan to use Dalot more next season with Ashley Young?



{Ed002's Note - I agree that they will likely need a RB with a good chance Darmian and Valencia will be moving on. I am not aware of their declaring any interest in anyone at this time.}

1.) 20 Feb 2019 11:06:43
Thank for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 20 Feb 2019 14:34:51
There’s a real shortage of quality fullbacks in world football these days. I’d be hard pushed to name a player I’d want to come in, maybe Meunier would be the best and most realistic option.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 15:06:44
Joshua Kimmich not a bad player!

4.) 20 Feb 2019 17:48:58
Wan Bissaka? kept TFM out of the Palace team last year.

5.) 20 Feb 2019 20:00:38
The very same TFM that can’t get a game For Fulham.

6.) 21 Feb 2019 20:48:34
Agree with Kimmich, he looks a great player good going forward and defending.

7.) 23 Feb 2019 05:30:55
Wolves' Doherty looks a really quality RB.



14 Feb 2019 11:31:44
Hi Ed's

I was just wondering if there is anything new on the futures of DDG Pogba and Sanchez?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Juventus remain interested in Pogba. If Sanchez were to leave it would need MU to pay most of his wages for a while. Right now it looks like DDG will stay at leaset another year but the two options are PSG and possibly Juventus. The PSG option will continue if Buffon takes up the one year option.}

1.) 14 Feb 2019 12:47:23
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 14 Feb 2019 17:14:30
Sanchez really has to go, but not if it means us paying his wage. I’d hope a Chinese club starts to circle.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 13:19:54
What does it matter if we pay part of his wage?

4.) 15 Feb 2019 17:06:48
It means that he isn’t off the books and the money isn’t free to use elsewhere. Why would you pay for a player to not be in your squad?

5.) 15 Feb 2019 21:42:36
Simple fresh he has a contract. We are in to him for 50m plus. He won't walk away without being paid off or without getting the same or the likes of that money from his new club.
With his form so bad its high investment and we are paying miles over the top.
Its the issue we face and the reason we can't shift squad players.

6.) 16 Feb 2019 09:28:34
I'm confused as to how how might know that fresh.



18 Dec 2018 12:45:58
Ed002 if you don't mind,

With JM now out of the picture, will the January transfer targets (if any) now change?



{Ed002's Note - Try not get tied to specific months but any potential targets that Mr Mourinho was behind will likely go from the table.}

1.) 18 Dec 2018 14:28:30
Thank you Ed, have a good day!

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

Hi Ed's

Are MU still trying to recruit a director of football?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 09 Mar 2017 20:15:10
Are you aware of how that search is going? I know we had an issue trying to get the guy who was first choice. Have any other options become available? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Not well.}

2.) 09 Mar 2017 21:04:15
Ed can you shed any light on who the possible candidates are and have we been in any sort of negotiations with any preferred target?

{Ed002's Note - It has not worked and the club need to rethink.}

3.) 10 Mar 2017 02:52:06
Heard it was Berta from Atletico we went for, heard rumors of Monchi from Sevilla was highly regarded aswell

Really intrigued on if Mourinho would be interested having one at the club as Mourinho likes to be more hands on regarding the management of a club.

{Ed002's Note - No it was neither of those.}

4.) 10 Mar 2017 12:02:33
Thanks for the information ed002

Something I wanna ask fellow fans, don't know your thoughts on us having one, I'm pretty wary of us ever having one as Mourinho is here, he likes to have control on all football aspects, he hasn't had good relations with the previous 2 clubs directors he had to work with Emenalo and Valdano

Just wondering Ed002 how is the restructing going regarding our scouting system, they overhauled it towards the end of 2016.

{Ed002's Note - There have been lots of changes to the scouting system at Manchester United and they will continue to change as they see fit - but for now it seems settled.}

5.) 10 Mar 2017 12:23:40
Thanks Ed002, have a nice day.

6.) 10 Mar 2017 13:13:02
Shane, I'm all for us having a sporting director. We didn't need one under Sir Alex but since then what has been the sporting vision for our club?

Ed Woodward is great at the commercial aspect of the club but we have had three managers in four years each very different with very different views on how football should be played. If we are to have a level of continuity we need a stable long term sporting vision for the club, that way we can shape the squad for the long term rather than having to completely change the playing staff every few years to suit the new manager.

Jose has already sold two players LvG paid 60m for. We can't keep doing that everytime we changed the manager.

7.) 10 Mar 2017 16:42:15
Fair points Shappy

Very reasonable answer and from your explanation I could understand why we should have one

I just feel Mourinho likes to do the majority of what a Director of Football would do, maybe it something we could re-visit when Mourinho leaves in the future.

8.) 10 Mar 2017 17:13:55
Shane, I think Mourinho will accept anything that makes his job easier. If having a man who can get the players in he wants when he wants is the outcome of having a DoF then he will happily accept I'm guessing.

9.) 10 Mar 2017 19:55:01
Ed Woodward already does that lol

A Director of Football isn't just about buying and selling players, he usually the "go between" of the board of directors and the manager

Personally Mourinho likes to be the manager that controls all the aspect of the Football side of a club, that's why he has had issues with his last 2 clubs, definitely at Real Madrid. Everyone knows how political the club is ran where the manager might only have a say in buying players, the majority of the time he not the one buying the players, it's usually Perez calling the shots

If United can find a person who is willing to carry Mourinho instructions out and make life easier for him then it could work but that's not a job description for a Director of Football, he basically being Mourinho Personal Assistant.

10.) 10 Mar 2017 20:08:49
Shane, name me a club Mourinho hasn't had a DoF at? As you say he has had issues with the guys at Chelsea and Real Madrid, but he also had to deal with a DoF at Porto and Inter.

United is the first and only club he has been at not to have one. I'm sure he'd adapt to what he has lived with for close to 15 years. Lol.

11.) 10 Mar 2017 22:33:12
He hasn't I don't think, I'm not sure but I think Luis Figo may of been the DOF at Inter at that time, I be brutally honest the Porto one no idea.

If it can work I be happy with it, I just think Mourinho likes to go his business his way.
