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.

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.}



08 Jun 2017 11:07:16
Interesting comment from Ed002 on the Chelsea page about not to rule out Fabregas moving to MU.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 12:52:42
Isnt Fabregas one of the players who turned against Mourinho at Chelsea?



28 May 2017 13:24:25
Hi Ed002

With Carrick signing the new 1 year deal, does this mean there was no replacement found/ available as you previously spoke about? Did MU bid for Savic even though he signed the new deal and does this also mean Fabianho is a non starter also?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - You can put aside thoughts of Savic. Regardless of a new contract MU will continue to look for a new MF player but it is getting tougher with Fabinho but don't rule out a move for Kroos just yet.}

1.) 28 May 2017 14:53:34
is fabinho off to city then with mendy ed002?is bakayoko still going to chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - No, nothing is finalised.}

2.) 28 May 2017 15:24:59
Thanks Ed, hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

3.) 28 May 2017 16:59:24
Thank you for info on Fabinho Ed002 - would you be kind enough to elaborate further on why a move for him might be getting tougher please?

Many apologies if you feel this is an unacceptable request or is unimportant.

Personally, I'd prefer Matuidi who seems much better value for money and already has a relationship with Pogba on the pitch - though Juventus seem to be doing their usual shrewd business by showing interest in him/ quality older players who seem unhappy or are nearing the end of their contract.

{Ed002's Note - Because of serious interest from other sides.}

4.) 28 May 2017 17:53:45
Wow that was a swift reply Ed002! Thank you.

5.) 28 May 2017 18:11:08
Ed, on Kroos, I know it has been this way for a while but I'm very surprised that Real would be open to letting him go. I've seen you say he's been offered/ spoken about in deals involving other players but I don't think there is another player in Europe as good as him in the holding playmaker role so it's very surprising they'd be willing to let him go.

I'd be over the moon if we signed him. Ideally he would be deployed in a midfield 3 rather than 2 holding with a 10 ahead.

6.) 28 May 2017 19:32:51
Modric is the best midfielder out there in that Deep lying playmaker position, but he won't be sold at any price. Real also have asensjo (spelling) so I can see them willing roc let Kronos go. There's Veratti also who is very similar to Kroos. I would take A modric above all of them. Then I'd take Kroos just because you can imagine him fitting in very well with this ram alongside pogb and Herrera!

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.

Ed002, do you expect there will be many players leaving in the summer?


{Ed002's Note - From the first team squad, certainly a few. Obviously the club has identified some who wanted out who have signed new contracts (e.g. Jones) and will call time on some out of contract (e.g. Valencia. They need to decide what to do about others, some want out (e.g. Pogba) and some are not going to move easily (e.g. Sanchez).}

Great read Ed. what do you think will end up happening with Icardi?


{Ed001's Note - he will probably end up signing a new deal. Who else would want to take him and his nutjob wife on?}
