Reading the posts - United interested in Torres snd Timber amongst other targets
Is it one signing or two?
Would that mean more sales than Bailly and Jones?
Will Tuanzebe be sold this window? He’s shown great promise as a kid but hasn’t really kicked on.

{Ed002's Note - Tuanzebe will leave as well.}

25 May 2022 23:30:24
Would not be surprised if it is both. Would allow for Bailly ane Lindelof to leave and generate funds. We could move to a back 3 or Timber has positional flexibility, we also don't know whether Verane can last a full season.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2022 05:21:58
For whatever reasons Tuanzebes chance has gone now. I think Bailly and Jones out is almost certain and there must be a huge question mark over Lindelof- If a bid came in from an Italian or Spanish club where its less physical I can see Lindelof going- never been strong enough, fans are lukewarm about him he just doesn't seem to fit at United.

Agree0 0Disagree

I think it would be easy to get carried away with these fantasies of selling half the squad. We'll need at least 4-5 players capable of playing CB against top teams so imagine we'll be stuck with Lindelof/ Maguire/ Varane for the coming season at least.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2022 08:16:58
I doubt EtH will sell Lindelof, he's actually pretty well suited to his style of play. Good passing range, mobile and capable of defending in the wide areas.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2022 09:06:39
And still no rumours of Maguire leaving……despite the price tag I think he’s the weakest one out of him, Lindelof and Bailly.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 May 2022 09:35:48
Lindelof is targetted by every robust striker in the PL he is as weak as a kitten-if ETH doesn't see that then the defensive problems will continue.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2022 09:46:24
Bailly, Lindelof and Maguire aren't good enough in my opinion but the best thing a player can be is available. Bailly simply never is, his injuries have been an issue since his first season and he should be first out of the door in my opinion.

On our CB's, I'm really wanting to see Mengi given a chance at some pointas he looks like he could be a good player. It's all well and good having these promising young players, however, if they never get the chance or we send them to a club that has been picked out of a hat on loan they will stall. We've seen it with plenty of players in the past few years, Fosu Mensah, Henderson, Gomes, Tuanzebe, Dalot etc. Not saying all or even any of them would have become world beaters but their treatment when they were clearly too good for u23's hasn't been great at United and we've seen too many not live up to what they possibly could have been due to it.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2022 12:59:08
RJ have to agree. Fosu Mensah was the big one I think. Tuanzebe been very unlucky with injuries at the wrong time. If memory serves right he picked on up as he was about to start v liverpool a couple of years ago and he really looked like breaking into the team.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 17:27:35
New name linked, young Valencia keeper Giorgi Mamardashvili as an understudy to DDG.

25 May 2022 17:35:07
Worth a few bob to the club when you get that name on back of jersey.

Evening Ed.
Are the club close on Timber? Do you expect him to join the club this Summer?

{Ed002's Note - He is an option as has been explained.}

25 May 2022 16:55:56
Thanks Ed. I’m getting impatient, we’re so slow at conducting business.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 17:06:07
Ed will we looking to buy two cbs or just the one.

Because we seem to be interested in Torres and Timber, Is it a case that we will look to buy both players as Timber can also cover at RB.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If MU want him as cover he certainly won’t be joining.}•

25 May 2022 18:39:17
Ole the window isn’t even open.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 22:03:32
Impatient before the window opens 😂 going to be a long summer for you.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2022 06:19:39
Trouble is our two main CB, Varane and Maguire both have big contracts till 2026, unlikely we can move both on at this stage, I can see only one CB joining at most.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2022 08:20:27
I expect to see all of Bailly, Jones and Tuanzebe to leave.

That leaves Maguire, Varane and Lindelof as our only senior CB's.

Of those three Varane has been injury prone this season.

While Maguire has been absolute dung. In fact he's been worse than dung as at least dung sticks to its man and can run.

I wouldn't be surprised to see two CB's come in. Defence is the biggest area that needs fixing and in order to play the way EtH wants he needs specific skills from his defenders.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 20:10:46
Milinković Savic rumours surfaced again this evening. Talk of a €55 million bid made to Lazio.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about this, repeatedly.}

24 May 2022 20:57:42
I know. Basically we want him, been the favoured choice to replace Pogba for some time but we’ll mess around with silly low offers and probably **** it up.
Or something along those lines?

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 22:44:12
Can’t see him as a ten Haag signing so where’s the point.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 01:01:26
What about Ten Hag though?

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 08:35:40
Why Tim?

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 12:11:55
From what I’ve seen of him he’s not really high energy or good at the press. Maybe I’m wrong but we’ve been linked for 3 seasons now and nothing. Is he a club signing or what the manager wants? That’s what I’m getting at.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 12:36:11
On the brink of becoming another Wesley Sneijeider this one…….

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 12:36:45
I agree Tim_99.
I have watched him 3-4 times this year and he's isn't a high energy player and doesn't press.
I think he would find the pace extremely difficult in the Premier League.
Just my personal opinion but i would stay well clear, it's not the type of player we need.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2022 13:39:27
So eth has final say that's been made public and very clear.
Who do you think knows better on what eth needs? I would suggest he does.
If he sanctions a bid for any player then I'm sure he knows how he plans to use him.
Same goes for his coaching team.
Opinions are all well and good informed opinions are usually best.
I like sms I think he is a great player tehnically and has great physical attributes but he is not quick especially.
I will support any new signings and staff I don't pretend to know better than ETH.
Lots of crazy rumours and most are untrue but 1 thing is for sure no player will be signed without eth approval so let's not second guess everything too much. After all we are the real amatures not those in charge.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 15:18:53
Is it a football team or a 100m relay team we talking about? what's this obsession about being fast? He knows how to play football and i think he knows it bloody well and that is enough. Was Scholes ever fast?

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 15:19:25
For once I agree with one of your opinions Ken 😉.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 15:59:09
Seems like Italian media talk. It’s the same as last year and year before. Like the above post it’s turning into another sneijder/ gaitan.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 16:14:11
Was just thinking the same fireman, I agree with Ken!

ED002,

Are Utd still Interested in Max Aarons?

{Ed002's Note - Max Aarons (RB) Bayern Munich decided against a move as the cost was seen as too high and Roma opted for another last summer although could yet return. Relegation will see him leave this summer. A scout from Borussia Dortmund attended a match in March to watch another player and recommended the club look specifically at Aarons. Manchester United want him as cover only and that may well price him out of a move at something like £30M. Spurs have other targets after the player they opted for failed to settle. Whilst Everton and Arsenal are looking elsewhere right now, both could return to focus on Aarons. Roma may provide a wildcard option.}

24 May 2022 17:34:29
Hi ed002 or ed001, what do you think will be the better/ smarter choice for RB cover spending 30M for Max Aarons or promoting Ethan Laird from the U23s? Whilst Laird is unproven in the Premier league I also haven't watched any Norwitch games this season so I have little knowledge about both players ability. Thanks in advanced.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Laird as at least he has a chance of becoming good enough.}

24 May 2022 19:05:53
I know Norwich fans have been really disappointed with him this year especially since Smith has taken over.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 02:12:50
Thanks ED002,

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 09:00:11
Don't suppose we have any interest in Bowen do we 002?

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

23 May 2022 20:30:25
Hi Ed, my apologies if this has been covered recently, I think not since the new coach was brought in. There's news today from Villarreal reports that Pau Torres agent is discussing a move with Manchester United. Are they still interested and pursuing him following the appointment of the new coach, and would it be tied to departures beyond the expected (Bailly, Jones)?

{Ed002's Note - Yes there will remain interest.}

23 May 2022 21:28:10
But Shappy says he’s not good enough!

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 00:22:58
Shappy said he had concerns that Pau Torres may lack the physicality for the EPL and has tended to play in a low to mid block defensive set up and wonders whether he could adapt to playing a high line.

Torres has some great aspects about his game, however he is bullied off the ball too easily in La Liga for me, he also lacks aerial prowess, often beaten in the air. That is in La Liga, the EPL is a much more physical league and I wonder how well he could adapt to that physical battle, as it is something that he hasn't shown yet in his career.

Try watching him and see what you think, and consider how his skills might translate to the EPL. Lindelof looked a much stronger and more physical player in Liga Nos than Torres looks in La Liga.

Agree6 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:33:10
looks a good modern CH with the ball at his feet, but very easily bullied and looks no tougher than Lindelof which is a worry.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 08:32:48
From what I’ve seen of Pau Torres, I’d be concerned too. Tidy on the ball but not the most physical. He tends to turn inside on the edge of his box a lot too. A worrying habit for a centre half.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 09:59:17
If Erik reckons he's up to what he needs then that's good enough for me.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 10:18:36
What would be the point? We're getting Timber in, and we already have a limited transfer budget. I'd be amazed if this happens.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 11:14:02
Can’t see it happening:

Timber (presuming he arrives) will be the long term centre back, possibly playing right back or defensive midfield until those positions are adequately filled.

Also Torres very expensive when funds needed for elsewhere.

Obviously our defence has been the most awful aspect of our play this season but, with some proper coaching and a better midfield in front of them, I’d expect them to improve considerably.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 14:02:27
I doubt it Wallace. Ten Hag likes interchangeable players (rotate within 2 positions during the game) . That means highly mobile players. He also builds from deep which means highly technical defenders. Daley Blind is a prime example, and while not quick is very mobile and plays multiple positions. From our defence I only see Lindelof and Varane as being anywhere close to what he might want.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 May 2022 20:15:01
Ed,
Do you know if United are showing any interest in signing Merih Demiral from Juventus?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that they have made any approach. Another club has an option on him already.}

24 May 2022 07:46:37
Red Rosa,

He will will likely join Atlanta.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 09:48:57
Thanks Mad Hatter. Shame, he is what we need.
