Ed002,

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.}

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.

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.

@dev1l In Sanchez's case agreeing his salary is more difficult than agreeing deal with United.

@midfield_maestro
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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

There is a rumour that Real Madrid might want to sent Luka Jovic on loan - maybe they already want to get rid of.
@Ed. (Assuming he can join us in the next transfer window) can you see Jovic alongside martial and rashford up front? Can it work?

I think the 27m + James Rodriguez bid proved how little an appetite Real Madrid had for seriously pursuing Pogba.

The fact that they are now seriously exploring a deal for Neymar shows that the money is there if they really want a player. I think it also shows that the manager doesn't dictate the signings at Real Madrid.
In which case does it really matter how much Zidane wants Pogba, if other people at the club don't want him then he won't go there.

I think this summer was his real chance to go to Real Madrid. I think he might have missed it, unless he has a storming season this year and proves himself to be a "Galactico".

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Aug 2019 12:43:31
And yet in the run up to deadline day people were pointing to Madrid as an example of how to do a rebuild. Now we're talking potential change of manager who probably won't like some of the players.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Aug 2019 13:18:44
Have madrid bought well?
I 100% like the direction we have taken this summer .
Keep reading pogba will sulk because he didn't get his move, but you have to wonder what move? Madrid seem to have put money on the table for hazard and neymar.
Juve put dybala on the table for lukaku .

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Aug 2019 16:15:56
Just saying that's what a few people on here saying. That Madrid had identified players and moved quick to get them in and lamenting that we hadn't done the same. I think we had s good window. I'd have liked another midfielder to add depth but wasn't to be.

Agree3 0Disagree

14 Aug 2019 13:23:39
Seen a few reports that Rojo's agent is at the training ground trying to arrange some sort of deal.
Also that Ole is possibly going to relegate Sanchez to the Reserves. Also reports that Ole really wants him gone from any influence on younger players even it means him going out on loan (Roma still interested) with us paying part of wages. Not ideal, but personally I think the time has come.
This may may well be a load of mushroom compost, but I thought I.

Rumours that Sanchez got into a fight with Greenwood at training, that clearly is not going to help him at all. I really want him out of the club, caused a lot of troubles and didn't give anything in return to the club.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Aug 2019 16:02:26
I saw reports that Sanchez got angry with Greenwood because he challenged him in training. If so, that's not the attitude you want to help breed confidence in the youth.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Aug 2019 17:06:03
I hope it is true as it sends a message through the squad. The rumour is we are offering to pay some of his wages but still nobody wants him, even on loan.

We also need DDG to sign a contract to follow up Marrial and Rashford doing so.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Aug 2019 17:34:29
I want him as far away from the club as possible, he is done and dusted, has offered nothing so far, how the heck did the club get into this situation idk, some people here don't think Ole has what it takes to make it but if he gets rid of Rojo, Sanchez and have us playing very entertaining footy, he may well be the one who takes us back to challening, early days but i do like how he is setting the team to play and our average age, that's very important most of these players will flourish in 2,3 years.

Agree1 0Disagree

Why is the narrative that we were "lucky" because Chelsea hit the post/ bar twice?

If we hit the post those same people would be call us unlucky. They would say it was a poor shot.

Why is a shot that hits the woodwork called unlucky while a shot that whistles just past the post is considered a shot off target therefore a poor shot?

If your shot isn't saved by the keeper and it doesn't go in then you missed. It doesn't matter if you missed by a yard or by a kick of paint. A miss is a miss.

We hit the woodwork 14 times last season, had all those shots gone in we would have won and extra 7 points and qualified for the UCL.

So we're we unlucky to not finish fourth or did we miss vital chances? It can't be one rule for us and another for our opponents.

Not saying you were lucky you won. I think most people would agree with me on that.
What I am saying is that the 4-0 flatters United as you struggled to create much of note, and with better finishing from us the match could've been a lot different. We didn't take our chances, and you guys did. That was the difference.

The unlucky part for us fans is that for all of our inexperience on (and off) the pitch, we were ultimately let down by our most experienced guy on the pitch. Azpi switched off twice, for your 2nd and 3rd goals. That was the real shame, for me at least.

You deserved to win as you took the chances you got. We didn't as we didn't finish ours. Simple as.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 08:28:56
Spot on that Shappy.

Jackson, "with better finishing from us the match could've been a lot different" and in other news if my Mum was male she'd be my Dad.


We were clinical, we took the chances that came our way. It's that simple. You can be lucky in the odd game winning by 1-0 but if you win 4-0 you fully deserve it, which I know you have already stated but some of the posts on the Chelsea page are laughable mate.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t concur mate I thought Chelsea were wasteful and should of been 2 up before you scored. That wasn’t anywhere near a vintage performance from you’re lot and if you'd have played City, Liverpool, Spurs on that form you’d have been soundly dealt with. I didn’t see anything from United that worried me but I agree you did make the most of you’re chances.

13 Aug 2019 09:09:12
Okay, so I don't speak for most other Chelsea fans on these pages at least :p

But on other platforms most echo my sentiments. We were wasteful and defensive transition was bad. You were clinical indeed. That's mostly story of the match.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 12:23:13
@Jackson

I pretty much agree with your assessment. I think we were lucky to lead at Halftime. But the 2nd half i think tactically we were spot on and deserved to win based on converting our chances.

Good Luck for rest of the season mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 12:26:27
Shappy, given the scoreline we can't say that we were lucky to win it but you can't deny that we were certainly lucky not to concede. De Gea was beaten twice and had to rely on prayers that the ball not deviate inside of the post.

Last season, away at Barca, Rashford went through on goal in the opening minutes and hit the bar.

I genuinely believe that had that gone in we would have beat Barca. We had them on the ropes in the first leg, we were all over them and their defence was in bits.

But that didn't happen, we made silly mistakes at the back and Barcelona were clinical. After the game we were pummelled by the press.

The main difference being, Barcelona were applauded for their performance in winning 3-0, whereas we apparently got lucky against Chelsea winning 4-0.

Dont put the ball in the net you don't score nothing to do with luck.

13 Aug 2019 16:42:04
If so, if that. If it was against Liverpool/ Spurs we would struggle, if Chelsea scored from their changes, then we would struggle. We would never know. The fact is, it was Chelsea, we scored from the chances we got, and won the game.

We didn't stop after 2-0 or 3-0 and kept going for more. There were a lot of positives about the way the team went about it in the 2nd half.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 19:51:17
My point is we scored 4, luck doesn't come into it when you score 4 unanswered goals. Yes Chelsea were wasteful and yes Dave saved a few but Chelsea not finishing isn't our problem and isn't your keeper supposed to make saves?


I thought Pogba was poor all game but then there are glimpses of the player you know he is, the ball for Rash over the top and the drive through midfield to set up DJ typifies him. For me he will worry teams and cause problems.


In Rash, Martial and Jesse we have players with pace who can run in behind and run the channels, this will also cause teams problems. I actually think we will be better suited to play against teams Like City, Liverpool and Spurs etc. Teams that will have a go and press high giving the pacey front 3 chance to stretch them at the other end, that's where Pogba will be very important for us with his vision, It's imperative he is motivated and he stays until replaced if we want to be top 4.


As for teams that will defend in compact blocks (that's where we will struggle) I think Maguire will become essential in bringing the ball out from the back and creating an overload in the middle. Can we break them down?

I thought we were poor at the back, great individually but we didn't defend well as a team, partly because Shaw was doubled up on for most of the game with Rash not really tracking back but I do think that will come.

City- I thought were phenomenal and are the team to beat again.

Liverpool- While good I thought Norwich created a few good chances, I have a feeling they can be got at this year. It's whether or not teams can outscore them.

Spurs- I thought ran out of ideas until Eriksen came on, he's important for them.

Arsenal- I really didn't see anything much from them, I thought Newcastle were always in the game (who looked very poor themselves) Auba is excellent and does what he always does.


All in all I'm excited, I'm enjoying watching us again which is amazing. I even got my Mrs cheering us on! I think we will surprise a few this year. I don't think we will be as far away as last year :)

Chelsea got done. Simple as that. Looking for ‘what ifs’ is just a waste of time. Going into a game against Liverpool tonight they need to think about team selection rather than hitting woodwork. Quick tip: play Kante in CDM. Simple. That centre back pairing was not up to it.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Aug 2019 20:49:48
this game reminded me of when we lost 3 nil to spurs having had 3 great chances to be 3 up, it happens from what i saw a 1nil utd would of been fair, but that's football chelsea were naive pushing for an equaliser and got caught out simple as.
I agree a city etc would of punished us but we will hopefully play better as the season goes on.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

10 Aug 2019 09:34:14
I have been very negative about this transfer window. Maybe because of all the hype about how this window would be the most important.

Well! The window was not good enough but i am still excited about the season. Although i think we are putting too much serious pressure on youth and being very reliant on them, i hope they come out very strong and give their best performance. I hope we suffer minor to no injuries as we are very light. It would be great.

If Ole is able to instil his attacking, high pressing game play and this team does not become a victim of fatigue then we may well finish inside the top 4.

Hoping all the best for the new season and hoping for a good performance and a win tomorrow.

I think we will start well and positively but will fade later in the season. Everyone is looking to Greenwood as the potential star, however, I wonder if Garner maybe the one who also surprises us in midfield.

Hes a good little player red man. Would also be nice to see him getting game time. We will need extra bodies in there.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 11:59:00
I think Garner, whilst not maybe providing the excitement of an attacker like Greenwood, might be the one who makes it to the very top. Very mature player, reads the game well, and has an eye for goal. I rarely hype up any young players - got my fingers burnt with Januzaj - but I think Garner is the real deal. With Greenwood and Gomes not far behind.

Agree4 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 12:45:50

10 Aug 2019 12:56:29
Maybe Ole is going to give some youngsters game time, which is why players like Matic and Young will be invaluable squad members. I’d we do play Greenwood, Chong, Gomes, Garner, we need some wise old heads to help them adapt.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 13:52:42
Yeah I think we all got wound up with the deadline. We are light in midfield and possibly upfront. Its a lot of pressure to put on a load of players who are teens an in the early 20s. We're all anxious. All we can do is get on with it.

Agree0 0Disagree

Lots of times people throw double standards around, yet at the same time suggest giving OGS more time than the last three managers. Why is that? The emotional sentimentality of a playing legend being in charge. But that isn’t double standards of course, its just because they love Ole. He is a legend to me, but a playing legend who has done nothing to deserve the managerial position. I doubt they would have appointed him if they had waited to the end of the season and the relegation form that was on display. He should be judged the same as the other managers were.

Today, I support the team as I always have, wish I could be there like I was for decades but I can’t. Get behind the team, wear green and gold and what will be will be, like we sang in 77.

Mort

My position on the strategic issues with the owners, the debt, the structure of the club has been aired on here regularly. The lack of success isn’t just down to the manager, we had one of the best in Mourinho yet they didn’t support him (and it cost us £20m more to sign Maguire a year later) and if he couldn’t succeed it tells you something is inherently wrong. However, that doesn’t make the present manager the right one. However he is in place so we support the team and get on with it.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Aug 2019 11:52:31
Give him more time than the last three managers? Who's been saying that? I think the general consensus is, like with all managers, a bare minimum of two transfer windows at the very least is required. Haven't seen anyone say he deserves more than Jose got. But I have seen a couple on here want him gone before a ball was kicked.

Well! Then why were the team in continuous negotiation for Dybala and Mandzukic?

Another lame excuse for failed window. I mean which team looking to improve on climb the table sells their best proven goal scorer, second best and most hardworking midfielder and replaces with no one.

Strengthening defence does not mean we can ignore the ongoing attack problem.

It would have been far better to see the manager come out and criticise the board and his bosses wouldn't it? Would have been ideal prep for Sunday to say the day after the transfer window has closed to say he's really not happy with the squad he has.

Undoubtedly things are hardly in perfect working order behind the scenes at United but some of the reactions to this transfer window have been laughable.

@Srestha. "I mean which team looking to improve on climb the table sells their best proven goal scorer".

I'd hazard a guess the team that got fed up with a player who is stacking on the lard on a daily basis and has to be separated from colleagues being aggressive itching for a fight and finally fronting up to M Phelan after being late for a pre season match and missing the bus. The last incident OGS saw as the final straw. Conte is no push over and it will be interesting to see how long it is before lardy bloke falls out with him.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 08:00:34
Even the stories suggested Juventus offered those players to us, not the other way round. Plus Dybala would have likely played as the 10, not the main striker. Making a meal from nothing. I'm glad Greenwood is getting a look in, hopefully Chong, Tuanzebe and Gomes get a few games too.

This is the diary of football as there's so many ways to interpret the game. However I’m not sure Lukaku was the best at anything and I’m delighted he’s gone as he was clearly causing trouble.

Agree4 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 11:45:02
He was the best at scoring goals at the club, highest scoring attacker both seasons he played.

We have been to, d that the club was looking to replace him, but were more concerned with getting an extra few million than giving themselves enough time to do it.

Now the manager is putting pressure on a 17 year old with basically no experience at the top level by claiming he’s the replacement.

I've heard from a very good source here in cork that ole has had a meeting with Roy Keane a few weeks back, about a coaching role at the club, he even went to keanes house. Keane was interested but there's someone at the club who is trying to block it, I wonder who that could be.

Now I thought a manager can pick his own coaching staff, or is ole just a yes man.
A good appointment in my mind and if it goes wrong for ole everyone can blame Keane.

We should have Rio Ferdinand as a coach for me. Keane is a bit marmite as a coach, fine if you want someone to give the players brutal truths but not sure beyond that. He left us under a cloud saying what he thought in an MUTV interview if I remember rightly, so can you imagine what he might do now? Rio for me.

Not sure if he'd be a good influence at the club. Too old school and stubborn to change approach.

I think the replies are missing the point.

I’m not convinced of Keane as a coach, but Ole should have control over his coaching team.

With all due respect to Leahy, you're all making judgements on a rumour. This is how the urban myth of Ole being a yes man gathers steam. None of us knows what goes on behind the scenes, but repeat something like this enough times, and people start accepting it as fact.

And you know that's not a dig at you, Leahy.

NC99 Jose wanted Evra, Ed Woodward blocked it. The point isn't a myth, there is a element of truth.

Every rumour that seems to be a negative is a load of nonsense but when something positive comes about its fact.

Random question. can we still sell players to clubs whose transfer window is open still?

I ask because what is Darmian going to do for a year if not?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Yes Eric. Transfer windows relate to the registration of players. So MU can still sell Pogba to Real Madrid or Juventus.}

09 Aug 2019 03:41:03
This is the reason Pogba should of been moved on and a replacement brought in before the 8th.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 00:55:39
Not even our boards ineptitude can go that low ED, as to let Pogba go now.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - is it ineptitude to sell a player who wants to leave?}

09 Aug 2019 05:23:34
Ed001 If he is your best player and you were stupid enough not to buy a replacement it is ineptitude.

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he is not your best player, never has been the best player anywhere he has been.}

Darmian will do what he's done the previous two year when he's been surplus to requirements. Train professionally when required and then go back to italy and chill out when given permission.

Not a bad life if you can get it.

Agree Ed. I’m not sure why people think PP is our best player, although football is about perspectives. He can be 1 in every 20 games. I don’t buy that we look better with him in the team. Defensively we have to carry him, and most of all he wants to leave. No need to reply with his goals scored stats, we know he’s a good penalty taker.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he looks good in highlight reels but he is ineffective over 90 minutes. Not my idea of the best.}

09 Aug 2019 07:47:07
Obviously CSM completely forgot about Jones, Tris.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no doubt.}

09 Aug 2019 08:55:24
Agree with ed. He is a very good player for about a third of the season, touching on world class every now and again even. He is our best midfield player in the games he turns up for but not our best player as he doesn't turn up enough.

That said, it would be stupid to let him go with no midfielders signed, in my eyes. Therefore it'll probably happen;-)

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I would rather play youth team players who will at least give their all. Might inspire the rest of the team as well to up their game.}

09 Aug 2019 08:55:57
Out of interest Ed001, who do you think is our best outfield player if not Pogba?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Wan-Bissaka probably. Though I would take Rashford and Lindelöf over Pogba as well.}

09 Aug 2019 09:57:30
“We don't look better with him in the team” what a ludicrous statement. Yes i would much prefer to see matic or fred ahead of him. Give over lol.

Agree6 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 10:30:31
Sorry DSG totally disagree, how many goals do we concede because Pogba goes walkabout. I can think of at least 3 from last season alone. He's a total liability. He plays well for a short period when he gets his own way, but when out backs are against the wall, such as when Top 4 was in our own hands last season, he goes missing. He's not up for the fight. He wants to play for the best team in the competition so he can show boat knowing he's going to take all the plaudits. Add to that he's a lousy person, he's just not the type of character I like to get behind.

For those reasons I do not think we are a better team with Pogba on the pitch. Of course it's not as black and white as that, 3 or 4 games a season he looks world class and wins us games, but for the remaining 30+ games he's a liability who has no interest in putting the graft in to get us back to where we want to be as fans.

Ole was right, he can offer Pogba a new challenge. If Pogba is up for it or not is a different question entirely.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 11:40:04
We need PP in the side. Who else is there to create an opportunity for the front three other than him?

I do however think that Ole will play him more and more in the no.10 role in a 4-2-3-1 system after being unable to sign Dybala etc. though, due to the aforementioned lack of tracking back. Then two of McTom, Fred, Andreas and Matic will sit behind him.

Agree4 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 12:54:23
I've been thinking the same, push PP further forward. We're really light though in the middle. Whereas at 10 we could have PP, Lingardinho, Mata and Gomes. And I'd rather see Gomes get minutes.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 16:36:46
You do not know the man personally, how can come to such serious character judgements?

Our whole team went missing, if you expect any midfielder in world football to drag us to success in the state we were in last season, you will be looking for a long while. How many goals did we concede because matic can not properly screen the back 4 or becuase luke shaw will neverr close down the wide man. Our whole team went to pot last season.

Pogba is one of the only players in our team brave enough to ask for the ball in tough situations, graft works both ways, he lacks it defensively but offensively he is always willing to try things and create chances. that's what a team is all about, some players are good at some things and poor at other, its all about the blend. that's why i am looking foreard to see how mctominay and pogba do as a pair, they complement each other well.

Agree2 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 17:09:51
I am not the biggest paul pogba fan, but I think he has handled this window very well, and should have earned a modicum of our trust back.

Also I don't like to go against the Ed's but imo there is 0% of him leaving this window.

Agree3 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 19:35:13
A ciuple of early defeats and he will be busting a gut to get out and it will all be rather unpleasant.
I think a few early wins and all the talk will go away until the next window.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 05:24:08
You big tease Ed002:)

This is the first time I'll not agree with you Ed001. At this point, we need Pogba in our team.

As for the rest talking about "ambition" "passion" "commitment" "loyalty" and all that, we're in a different era. Pogba may not be the best but he's among the best ballers and since his arrival at Manchester United, he has not featured in the best five players in the world. Any appearance in any selected world-level team is based on his international duties. He has no chance of winning the Premier league or champion's league in the coming days. The club aren't showing much ambition to strengthen yet you all want him to smile and keep it up to show "he loves the club".

Yet if any of you had a better offer than your employers that would lead to a more successful and beneficial future for you and your families you would take it without thinking - isn't it hypocrisy?

Remind me how many trophies Bale won at Madrid. Maybe he should have stayed at Spurs they would have at least won the FA Cup.

On a final note, 8m not saying loyalty is not good, but ambitious and also visions have to match. Also, do remember we're at an age where "playing for the badge" is becoming history.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - what are you wittering on about? People expect Pogba to break sweat and make an effort, it's his job and he is well paid to try. Instead he strolls about being a lazy get, it doesn't matter what era you are in. Have you not seen the top 3 last season play? All 3 had 11 players on the pitch making an effort, which is why they are the top 3. Pogba apologists, excusing him being a lazy tit despite being paid millions to stroll around the pitch laughing at the fans paying his enormous wage to do f all, are just embarrassing. Clueless.}

10 Aug 2019 08:30:36
Pogba is not a main midfield player, he doesn’t have the strength, tackling, ball retention or running to do it. Put him in a free role as a No10 for want of a better description just behind the forward/ s and he will create and score. He needs solidity behind him, not be the solidity. We now have a more solid defence, but midfield isn’t. Play him as one of two in central midfield and he will have the occasional good game but mostly be caught in possession and see players run past him.

I would have sold him this summer, I don’t think he is committed to Europa glory or possibly scraping fourth. I would suspect the decision makers, having staked a lot of money for his social media presence, don’t want to lose face or clicks by selling him. If he stays I suspect it will be a Cristiano type arrangement, stay for one more year and you can go next summer. The fact he has stayed so far, there is nothing to say the financial gurus won’t sell him in the next few weeks of course, indicated a lack of leadership throughout the club, including the precious manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 11:13:32
Couldn't have put it better myself ed001. But if I did, I'd be attacked on here. Some people really believe pogba is going to turn a switch and become 'THAT' player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - people keep defending him but fail to notice that the problem is not that he can't tackle, for example, because he is a bloody good tackler. The issue is that he can't be arsed to put a challenge in. He is the problem, not the position he is played in. He has an attitude that stinks on the pitch. I have no issues with what he does off the pitch, he doesn't drink, smoke, do drugs, he keeps himself in excellent shape. His issues are all on the pitch with a complete lack of effort. Look at the difference with Santiago Cazorla when Wenger asked him to play deep. He gave 100% and was outstanding, because he tried. You can forgive a player for being crap, what is unforgivable is when they are lazy and don't even try and make the effort. If they don't try they don't deserve anyone's backing.}

10 Aug 2019 11:42:08
Now all of that compounded by the fact he doesn't want to bloody be here.

But people on here think he is going to change his mind.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - they are like lovesick teenagers who won't accept the woman of their dreams has no interest in them.}

10 Aug 2019 12:08:01
Why the need for digs like, 'precious manager', Red Man? Fine, you didn't want him as the manager, but he's still been a great Utd servant, and probably deserves a bit better than spiteful little comments like that. Sounds a bit childish, to be honest.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 13:01:54
It’s a case of the E, peror’s new clothes for me. We see the odd great pass or flick but over a game he regularly disappears. We can argue all we like about how good a player he is but ultimately he doesn’t want to be here and doesn’t appear to be giving everything for the cause. Talent is great, but without effort and application then it is too often wasted.

Bit of information about Mejbri who was only born in 2003, (I feel old)

Joined Monaco in August 2018 after spells in the academies at Paris FC and AC Boulogne-Billancourt. Monaco paid £1million for the teenager when he was just 14. Played eight games for France u16s and is also eligible to play for Tunisia (dual citizenship) . He made one senior appearance for Monaco last season.
Mejrbi and his family became locked in a legal dispute with Monaco after the Mejbri family claimed the Ligue 1 club broke a contract agreement.
United are believed to have been tracking the teenager for six months with a number of other clubs including Bayern Munich and Arsenal who were said to be interested. £9m is believed to be the fee.
