I know it's unlikely, and not on ed002 list but would anyone take bale on a season loan? Also, out of interest, what four players would you sign to make us competitive, or challenging over the course of the season on all fronts? If it was me I'd take 2 young promising players and 2 quality first team starters week in week out.

Considering the stick the likes pogba, rashford and martial have had over supposed “attitude issues” on here, surely that would rule any move for bale out of the question.

Hes hasn't exactly shown himself to be a top professional in the past few months.


2.) 07 Aug 2020 22:10:29
I'd say no to Bale. I still think when fit he'd be one of the top players in the PL but even if we miss out on Sancho, I'd look at a few others who are younger and could be signed permanently before even thinking about Bale.

As for the competitive on all fronts question, I'll say we need more than four players before we can mount a serious title challenge or compete to win the CL.


3.) 07 Aug 2020 22:32:28
Bale would be another Sanchez situation. No thanks.
I would love Ndidi but the price would be ridiculous. Fabrizano has stated that Partey is available for €50 mil so my 4 players would be Partey, Sancho, Telles and a cb, no preference as I don’t have enough knowledge on who I think would be good for us and attainable. Probably Gabriel.


4.) 07 Aug 2020 22:47:58
Think Zidane has mucked him about a bit, and now he is shafting him back. But if you got him playing he could be excellent Would love us to move for neves and jimanez or even Edouard, if he were to leave Celtic, twice the player Dembele was at Celtic. But think a centre back is vital first before blowing the budget on Sancho, who doesn’t really want to be at the club and limiting Greenwood’s progress. Would avoid Grealish aswell. Looking at Fernandes, he playes like it means something to wear the shirt.


5.) 07 Aug 2020 23:39:11
No to Bale.

If I had to sign 4 players it would probably be KDB, VVD, Messi and Mbappe.

Sorry, I’ve been outside enjoying the sunshine.


6.) 08 Aug 2020 00:51:12
bale on his day as good as anybody but them days have gone.


7.) 08 Aug 2020 02:02:00
We are more likely to see him on the pga tour that anywhere near his best on a football pitch again.


8.) 08 Aug 2020 08:19:32
I was a huge fan of Bale, but that ship has sailed.
His wages itself will cause problems to the club.

My ideal 4 would be Sancho, Saul, Alaba, Jiminez.
These 4 would make us title challengers.


9.) 08 Aug 2020 08:39:07
Who I would like:
lb davies, bayern
cb skriniar
mid saul
forward chiesa
who I think we'll get

Cb smalling
mid/ am grealish
rw sancho.


10.) 08 Aug 2020 09:06:51
I’d go for Sarr, Edouard, neves, skriniar. Two ready for first team every game, two to alternate with what we have to avoid stalling any progress already made.


11.) 08 Aug 2020 09:27:24
Bale? Is this the same Bale who was playing golf yesterday while his side got knocked out the UCL? That Bale. Absolutely not, he is in decline, injury prone, has a poor attitude and expects huge wages. He would soon knock Sanchez off his perch as the worst ever signing.

As for which four signings would I like to see?

Dream signings would be Sancho, Gimenez, Fabian Ruiz and Alex Telles

Cheaper/ easier/ more achievable signings would be Buendia, Gabriel Malaghaes, DvdB and Jamal Lewis.


12.) 08 Aug 2020 09:31:49
Skriniar is another CB who lacks pace.
Giminez of Athletico, Upamecano or Pau Torres would suit us better.


13.) 08 Aug 2020 10:13:04
Shappy what do you do on your days off?
Bale for united. Not for me but to be so self righteous to slag a bloke off for playing golf on a day off is pathetic imo.
He was not in the squad he was not allowed travel with the squad he was not on real madrid duty so why shouldn't he play golf.
The manager doesn't want him or play him a bit like bastian when he was here. What do you want bale to do sit at home on his day off?
Get a job working for the daily star with that bolloxology shappy. 😂
Not for united at this point i'd have loved him a few years back. Great player when fit and focused.
Amazing how some managers are considered bullys and called out by the likes if yourself but ole can cut the likes of dalot loose or zidane bale and there is not a word about it.
If your face doesn't fit and the manager doesn't fancy you then you have 2 options. Stick to your contact go through the family slog of training and adhere to the terms of your contract.
Or ask to leave.
Bale seems to have chosen the former which v is well within his rights and he has every right to play golf on a day off.


14.) 08 Aug 2020 10:25:03
Ken, Bale refused to play against Man City this week.
That shows serious lack of professionalism.


15.) 08 Aug 2020 11:54:22
No he didn't TRD he wasn't included In the squad. stay away from the clock bait TRD.


16.) 08 Aug 2020 11:54:29
I would doubt the report he refused to play, think that’s just the Real Madrid soon on things because they too are probably wondering why a fantastic talent isn’t even making the bench. Don’t think the fans had turned against him til that point. I don’t think Dalot and ole is a comparison, because I think he is below standard required, but real are not what they were and bale could do a job.


17.) 08 Aug 2020 11:57:01
Madrid would love bale to pull a stunt like that trd so they could fire him for gross misconduct and save themselves 600k a week.


18.) 08 Aug 2020 13:26:31
Ken, How true it is who knows, but Zidane said in the press conference that Bale refused to make himself available. While people associated with Madrid are suggesting that they regret pulling the plug on his 1m a week transfer to China.

It's a right mess. While Bale has also defied club doctors to play golf while injured which may or may not have exasperated his injuries and delayed his return for the club.

While he was pictured mocking the club and acting like a fool while watching Madrid play a few weeks ago. The whole relationship between the club and the player has soured and while I don't lay all the blame for that at Bale's door, he should still be acting professionally.

I think its a very sad ending to what a few years ago looked like a fantastic career. A real shame.

{Ed047's Note - which is easy for Zidane to say knowing full well he had no intention of using him if he did travel.

Zidane is an arse and glad those maggots are out of the UCL.


19.) 08 Aug 2020 15:57:36
He has won lots helped his intl team to new unprecedented heights he is a multi millionaire. A bit like rooney you are left with the feeling he could have done even better than he did but overall i'd say he has fulfilled pretty much all his boyhood dreams and aspirations. Not that sad. i'd say he is pretty happy playing golf. He might even out last zidane at madrid.
Very few professional footballers think like fans. Its just a job to most of them. I think he has done petty well from his job.


20.) 08 Aug 2020 16:28:11
The only way Bale would sign is if there was a golf course next door to the training ground.


21.) 08 Aug 2020 18:15:46
Id love to see him have a good year or 2 somewhere. Bit of talk of juve, however true it is, they are the masters of a good free transfer and getting the best from aging players.
Could he be motivated again? i'm not sure. He seems to have just fallen out of love with madrid and the game in general.


22.) 08 Aug 2020 20:21:26
I would, just think of the sponsorship deals if he plays in the Ryder Cup.


23.) 08 Aug 2020 23:58:49
I always thought Bale would and should have ended up at Urd. But the way he has carried on for the last lot of months, would make me give him a huge swerve now. What sort of professional footballer would rather not play football. His agent is the only reason his name is even still mentioned. I'd forgotten he even still played football.


24.) 09 Aug 2020 10:38:28
Not sure that’s fair Nou. He’s played well for Madrid when called upon, and when he managed to get a solution last year in China, the club blocked the move knowing he wouldn’t be in the coach’s plans. If I was him I’d take my 500k a week or whatever and live in a wonderful city until someone came along for me.

{Ed001's Note - the club never blocked the move to China.}


25.) 09 Aug 2020 10:42:37
Albeit he has acted very immaturely in the sidelines.


26.) 09 Aug 2020 11:15:44
Did he just not fancy it and?

{Ed001's Note - no transfer fee was agreed. The Chinese club wanted him on a free.}


27.) 09 Aug 2020 13:00:15
Maybe a bit harsh, Eric. Just annoys me to see talent going to waste. You just know Ronaldo or Messi would be busting a gut to play football. Anywhere. And that's why they're top players. Does Bale really just want to be remembered for the size of his paycheck? Character-wise, I don't think the last year has shown him in a great light, and I think character is important when looking at potential signings.


28.) 09 Aug 2020 14:04:25
Agreed on the character front, and in no way am I advocating we sign him. Think the club have been stung just that one too many times now (Di Maria, Sanchez etc)


29.) 10 Aug 2020 12:42:32
I think Gareth is looking at the Euros for being his swansong. He will be happy to play a bit part role at Madrid for the year, turn up fresh for the Euros. The off on that golf buggy and his world golf tour with his mates.


30.) 11 Aug 2020 18:23:00
Maybe Bale doesn't like playing football and isn't bothered about a career so he is content to take the money and do nothing.


 

 

15 Jan 2020 09:59:29
So how is it so difficult to get a signing we need, surely Bruno Fernandes has a market value, which we are aware of before we try to sign him, he is sounded out and wants to come. Just as Ed says, amateur set up.

Day one. I know you want 60 million, how about we give you 50? No?

Day two, moving on from yesterday's discussions, how about we give you 50? Still no

Day three, maybe we have been unreasonable and undervaluing your asset, how about 45 and a defender we have been unable to shift for three seasons? No. We are a distance apart in valuation, we will leave it a few days.

Day seven, how about 50 million? No, okay talk to you tomorrow see how you feel.

What do you mean your client doesn't feel valued by us and is looking elsewhere! We are Man Utd!

DavieBhoy07

1.) 15 Jan 2020 11:02:01
Someone just reminded me that in theory we should still have the lukaku money to spend. he was sold at the end of the summer window and the money wasn't reinvested. At the time all the noise was that it would definitely be put towards future transfers, yet here we are again trying our best to not get a deal done. By the summer, that lukaku fee will have conveniently been forgotten by the board and prob disappeared into a dividend payment.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how it works.}


2.) 15 Jan 2020 11:20:13
People need to chill, the club are attempting to sign someone. These things take a certain amount of time.
I read somewhere that Sporting might be stringing out the negotiations so he can play for them on Friday against Benfica. Maybe that's true, although I would be surprised if it is to be honest. A dangerous game to play if the rumours are true that Sporting need the money. If he gets injured on Friday then that would potentially put the kibosh on the whole deal.
Either way, at some point I expect he'll be announced as a new signing.

Then everyone can get back to complaining that the club aren't going to sack Ole as they have just backed him in the January transfer window.


3.) 15 Jan 2020 11:25:29
That money is not one lump sum. They maybe got a 30 mill payment and the rest will come throughout Lukakus contract. So while we agreed an 70odd mill deal, we don't have that to spend. The books need to be balanced and spending money before you have received money is not how it works I'm afraid.


4.) 15 Jan 2020 11:26:36
Ed 002, in Football manager it does
:D.


5.) 15 Jan 2020 12:27:28
Shappy!

You pretty much said the same thing in the summer as well. "This things take time and blah blah". When window came closer, you said " We have still time". When the transfer window closed down and we didn't sign any midfielders, you wrote an essay about how we don't need midfielders by listing whole starting XI and how this team is good enough. Then as we started losing you said Ole deserves time as these team needs midfielders and at least 4 signings. So in short you have changed your opinions several time to defend the club.

My point is you need to have a reality check and understand that we have been screwing windows after windows for a long time and there is no point defending the wrongs going in the club and Ole is one of the wrongs.

The structure of the club is wrong but so is the choice of manager. All posters here trust the judgement of Ed002 and never doubt it. But when Ed002 said Ole is a wrong appointment, you turn your head around. We need a lot of investments in the team and there is no point dragging on the window if we are to pay the same price. e.g Maguire : Chased all the window to pay the same price.


6.) 15 Jan 2020 13:44:14
Fine then Srestha, get your knickers in a twist.

It's a well known fact after all that fans getting angsty on the internet makes top football clubs complete transfer deals quicker.

If we are going to sign him then it will happen, if we don't then we don't.


7.) 15 Jan 2020 14:52:17
So do you think that as soon as the window shuts we stop looking, stop negotiations and start again. Negotiations are going too long because we are clueless and unprofessional. Does it take two windows to negotiate a deal for a player that wants to come? Yes it does if you are an amateur and don’t want to pay the fee correctly. We should have at least one signing wrapped up by now and organising others, but the ability isn’t there to close a deal, and is definitely not there to negotiate more than one deal at a time. Shambles from top to bottom with this set up. But we move on and support the team tonight!


8.) 15 Jan 2020 17:20:00
How many windows did it take to negotiate Maguire? or AWB? or James?

Yes, the club tried to play hard ball with Sporting over Fernandes in the summer, and now they are back to try and sort it. Maybe they club didn't feel they needed Fernandes enough to pay the fee in the summer. Maybe they didn't think Pogba was going to spend 4 months injured.

I'm not saying the club is run well, just that there is little point throwing our toys out the pram just because a player hasn't signed by a date we feel is appropriate.


9.) 15 Jan 2020 19:49:11
Always excuses for this club shappy. Truth is, they are a mess, top to bottom.


10.) 15 Jan 2020 22:00:45
Angel, the last paragraph of my last reply I clearly say

"I'm not say the club is run well"

I'm not making excuses, just trying to add balance. When someone says the club can't compete a transfer while ignoring the three signings we made in the summer just reeks of petty one sided whinging.

The club are attempting to sign Bruno Fernandes, whether we succeed or not remains to be seen. But I'm not sure what complaining on the internet every half an hour because the club haven't announced his signing yet is a little pathetic.

We'll either sign him or not. By all means if the club balls it up a second time then kick off and stamp your feet for all the difference it will make. But at least you will be complaining about something that has actually happened or not as the case maybe.

It's like complaining that it's not Christmas yet and the government have made a mess of it on the 22nd of December.

Give it time.


11.) 15 Jan 2020 22:26:33
Sounds a lot like excuses to me. They are incompetent when dealing with transfers. That's the top and bottom of it. Big changes need to be made.


 

 

08 Jan 2020 20:21:16
There is talk of Chelsea agreeing terms with Dembele of Lyon. Although disappointed if it's true, I hope it is because we have plans for better. I would like to see Edouard brought in at the end of the season. Better all round player than Dembele and would be cheaper aswell. Need midfielders as a priority I think.

DavieBhoy07

1.) 08 Jan 2020 20:59:56
We have plans for better? Do Man Utd and plans go in the same sentence nowadays?


2.) 08 Jan 2020 21:03:16
True story, but surely after Haaland and now Dembele, there must be something happening behind the scenes. Hopefully two midfielders instead.


3.) 08 Jan 2020 21:06:21
Davie there is talk of him going to join rodgers at Leicester. Good move vardy won't last forever.


4.) 08 Jan 2020 21:09:39
Vardy at one point was a player we would have looked before. Now we are too stuck up and like fancy names instead.


5.) 08 Jan 2020 21:15:41
Used to love it when we just signed people, no drama, no talk for months, no competition. Hard to get used to the new climate. Talk about it for months, let others seal the deals.


6.) 08 Jan 2020 21:42:50
dont worry we have called peter crouch to come out of retierment so we can play route 1 football. we will be fine.


7.) 08 Jan 2020 21:56:31
Any thing is better than the dross were playing at the minute.


8.) 08 Jan 2020 23:50:50
We don't need strikers we need defensive and creative attacking midfielders.


9.) 09 Jan 2020 10:24:03
scholes and van nistelroy back in training.

09 Mar 2021 18:44:18
With Cavani's father saying he won't be staying next year, we desperately need an out and out striker, with his movement and how he occupies the back line, who should we target? Realistic targets.

DavieBhoy07

1.) 09 Mar 2021 19:33:09
Haaland ideally, but if not Ciro Immobile.


2.) 09 Mar 2021 19:54:25
Calvert-Lewin is maybe realistic, certainly more realistic than Haaland. I’d consider Andre Silva who is coming good and has the physical presence we need through the middle. Jovic could be considered also.


3.) 09 Mar 2021 20:31:24
What about Ivan Toney at Brentford? Championship top scorer with 25 in 32. Apparently they're valuing him at £30 million.


4.) 09 Mar 2021 20:42:20
. forgot to mention Ronaldo too ;)


5.) 09 Mar 2021 21:21:45
While I have been far from convinced about Martial this season, I personally think it would be a mistake to spend a significant amount of our budget this summer on a striker.

Our problems are in defence. Man City have scored just one goal more than our 55 goals so far this season. However, what really has created an 11 point gap is our inability to keep goals out of our net. Conceding 32 goals to City's 19.

We need to spend on a top class CB AND a top class CDM who doesn't require another CDM to hold their hand through a match.

A tighter defence means we can play more on the front foot and will be able to create more goal scoring chances for our forwards.

So while DCL (60-70m-ish) or Andre Silva (40m), or any other top class strikers would be a great addition to our squad, they would need to come after the signing of a CB and a CDM if we are aiming to close the gap between us and City.


6.) 09 Mar 2021 21:35:30
A top class dm who doesn't need another next to him. who in our squad are we playing next to him that isn't defensive? Matic? Fred? Mctominay? We need a passer not a defensive mid maybe there's one on loan at Notts forest? he seems to be doing very well there. For me we need to start playing vdb in midfield alongside Scott rather than treating him as Bruno cover when your never going to rest bruno. Pogba needs to go anyone who thinks he should stay is crazy.


7.) 09 Mar 2021 21:36:58
Agree Shapps, If we get a solid CB and CDM, the whole team can play higher up the pitch.

Haaland is a dream signing.
Others to consider would be Lautaro Martinez, Andre Silva, Odsonne Edourd.
I also do like Danny Ings but not sure if he is United quality.


8.) 09 Mar 2021 21:40:43
In summary, we need a new spine to the team.


9.) 09 Mar 2021 21:53:46
Ings is a class player. Would do well in our team but can be injury prone. Our priorities lie in defence and midfield.


10.) 09 Mar 2021 21:53:55
Shappy, what makes you think we will score as many goals next term as we have done this term when Cavani has left and we have the Great Sulk up front again? It’s never a mistake to sign a good striker.

Wazza is spot on, we do need a new spine. Centre back is crucial, central midfielder who can dictate play (not a defensive midfielder) and a centre forward are what we need to win trophies. It won’t happen in the summer, we may get one of them.


11.) 09 Mar 2021 22:41:53
It’s why his father said he wouldn't stay that was interesting. His father said "I want Edinson to play in a team that fights for something important. ” Maybe progress isn’t playing in the Europa League and get a few extra points more than the previous season.

Realistic targets, see what Ed says on the rumours page.


12.) 09 Mar 2021 23:18:29
I think the priorities are top class CB cm and right winger. If we could buy a top class defender a top class midfielder and say Raphinia of Leed that would be a fantastic summer.
I would keep Martial upfront and buy Ings as a replacement of Kavani to rotate with Martial. I would keep Ings fresh and sharp and a fully fit Ings is upgrade on Kavani for me. I know many would disagree but that's ok.


13.) 09 Mar 2021 23:36:44
If Cavani does move on and Utd don’t sign a CF, it will dominate these pages throughout next season. Unless Martial produces that kind of display until the end of the season, a new striker is required. If Cavani stays, we’ll get away with it for another season, even though an attack-minded player of some ilk will be necessary.
But - and it’s a big but - whatever the shape of the squad, IF Haaland is available, we are talking about a once a decade player with his career ahead of him. We have to at least try, surely.


14.) 10 Mar 2021 00:58:07
I would keep Cavani Let him have a decent rest and then preseason build up. He will inspire the younsters.

{Ed0666's Note - I think it’s more that cavani wants to go to Boca while he’s still got some goals in his legs.


15.) 10 Mar 2021 07:00:48
Why didn't Boca pick up Cavani when he was a free agent?


16.) 10 Mar 2021 08:11:26
He will be a free agent in 3 months.


 

 

05 Mar 2021 14:51:38
If the Edouard to Leicester story for £15mil is true I think we are really missing out. Great player with massive potential! Would have liked him at Man Utd to continue to develop. Think we could be sorry in a season or two if that goes through.

DavieBhoy07

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have no interest in him.}


1.) 05 Mar 2021 15:36:31
I hear a lot about him davie. I've not seen him much as watching celtic as well as United this season might make me go blind.
So you think he can cut it in the epl? Big boots to fill at Leicester. Vardy has been amazing there.


2.) 05 Mar 2021 15:01:23
Didn’t think there would be Ed, thanks for the reply. We will no doubt pretend to chase Haaland and offer derisory amount after three months.


3.) 05 Mar 2021 15:50:03
Ken, it has been a tough season for me. Eyes have been bleeding at some points! He has a lot of quality and has great attributes to step up. Every few years a player just has that bit more than everyone around him. Van dijk, tierney and to a lesser extent Wanyama. Edouard is the next one then possibly Ajer. He is different to what Leicester have, not a run in behind like Vardy, more a false 9, dripping deeper and linking play. Just when I see what we have in Martial, OE is twice the player. Will be worth £40 million within a month of a £15 mil transfer.


4.) 05 Mar 2021 16:14:59
Cheers dave. Let's hope it improves next season pal.


5.) 05 Mar 2021 22:20:07
Well at least he can’t be accused of not knowing what his best team is, probably the comment levied at managers the most.
OK, it’s not the team anyone else wants to see but there you go :D
Come on the team is second. Lighten up you miserable lot, would anyone genuinely prefer Moyes, LVG or Mouinho back? There was such vitriol against all of those eras. Ole’s obviously not going so let’s see where we end up and what he does with the next window when I hope and pray the never-ending CB/ RW positions are resolved.


 

 

05 Jan 2021 16:52:03
With our current squad having somehow managed to be in a great position at the turn of the year, what players would people recommend to make our squad and staring eleven able to continue to develop and keep the momentum? I don't think we will invest much in this window if at all. For improvement I would love us to invest in not project players such as the young Atalanta boy, but the level above that. Say 22-26 year old players. If you had a choice to take on three players this window, what positions would you fill, and with who? Ideal football manager world style question. I'd like pogba out, swap for Bentacur. Pau Torres and Buendia.

DavieBhoy07

1.) 05 Jan 2021 17:44:03
Aymeric Laporte (or Alessio Romagnoli)
Saul Niguez (or Joshua Kimmich)
Kylian Mbappe, swap for Pogba.

DavieBhoy07 never said about being realistic.

However if I was to go for more realistic players than it would be as follows:
Pau Torres (seeing that he is our 1st choice for CB according to ed002)
Yves Bissouma
Ismaila Sarr (not sure on RW off the top of my head)


2.) 05 Jan 2021 18:02:05
I would go with Torres because he is our first CB target but only in the place of Harry Maguire. I don't think these two are a good compination, Torres wants an aggressive CB next to him and Harry wants such a player too. Then Bissouma because we need a busy box to box with quality and a trust Ed001 opinion, he is proven and i believe that he will be good from day one. Then Sporting's left back and loan him back for 1.5 year so be ready next year to replace Shaw .


3.) 05 Jan 2021 18:17:39
Pau Torres and Upamecano as the new pair for CB.
Saul Niguez or Declan Rice for CDM.


4.) 05 Jan 2021 18:22:00
Saul, Haaland and a CB (Upamecano or Torres) .

I guess I only need to elaborate on Haaland, since pretty much everyone agrees that we need CB and midfielder.
Both Rashford and Martial need a chance too much to score a goal. i'd rather see them play as wing forward or a second striker. Yes, we have Cavani, but he can't play every game, as good as he is. So, when he doesn't play, we need someone to score, a true striker. I think Bruno would have 5-10 assists more this season, if he had a true striker upfront.

Had we sold Pogba on the summer then Saul would have probably been a realistic signing.


6.) 05 Jan 2021 18:51:32
Upemecano and Torres would be massive! Bissouma has looked good every time I’ve seen him aswell! And Haaland is one of the biggest missed chances I can remember! He was always going to be outstanding! We definitely need a true number 9, the difference with Cavanis movement when in the team to another level. Martial just can’t get that consistent level and rashford, both quality, but not central for me. Would still like a punt on Edouard if he was to leave Celtic.

I think the key to January signings is ONLY sign a player if it is a player you would sign in the summer. i. e. a long term target.

Very few of the best players are available in January. I don't think signing our 4th or 5th choice CB in January for example because they are available is a good idea. We would be better off waiting a few months and sign our first choice in July.

That said there are two players who we might be able to sign in January who would be potential summer targets in my opinion. That being Pau Torres and Declan Rice. Both are players who fit the bill of what we need and are ideal targets. While I think both could be bought in January as they are at clubs that will neither be challening for titles or battling relegation.

So those two would be the ones I would consider. Them two and Emi Buendia obviously😂.

Two things.
Firstly I would think not going through with the Lewandowski transfer, which he himself confirmed at one stage was very very near completion while he was still at Dortmund is another big miss for us in my view.

Secondly has Odsonne Edouard played right wing. If he can fill in and cover at RW then he becomes more attractive option. I am just asking this because one of the older version of FIFA he is listed as a winger.


9.) 05 Jan 2021 20:14:11
I don't see us bringing anyone in unless they are able to secure one of the top CB targets. Upemacano is summer at best but likely elsewhere so Tores seems to be everyone's choice (not seen enough to judge) . HM will be for the summer and will be tricky to get the top targets mentioned that have the defence ability and skill for a pass (saul and Rice) . RW should be left to summer to give the current crop a season along with the new players brought in. Same with midfield, we are well stocked with variety as well.
The left field one would be an additional RB and Aaron's would give us extra attacking down that side and allow AWB some rest.
I feel we have a plan in transfers (whether we have the team with Woodward to pull it off who knows)


10.) 05 Jan 2021 20:49:17
Edouard? Decent championship player at best if that, ighalo is level above Edouard.


11.) 05 Jan 2021 21:32:51
Torres who seems to be our first choice centre back, I don’t know much about him but neither do I know much about Upamecano.

Rice in the middle - would make a world of difference to the team.

I don’t think we need a right winger and we ought to give Diallo and Pellestri every chance whilst Greenwood remains first choice. I’d have to go for Haaland - he’s one of the top 3 strikers in the world and will take over the mantle from Lewandowski.

An extra luxury? Grealish. Do a Bayern and buy the best talent in your domestic league.


12.) 05 Jan 2021 22:09:09
Edouard a championship player? Have you seen him play? I’ve seen every game he has played in Scotland and also 5 games for France u21, where he has become their top goal scorer ever at that level. Must be some Championship team! Maybe you thought, van dijk, Armstrong, Tierney etc were also championship at best? My point is, you buy players just below the top top level and work with them. I have seen he is better than Dembele (Lyon) and pundits have said he is the closest to Henrik Larsson they have seen at Celtic. I remember he wasn’t that bad. But to be fair, like I said take a punt. But ighalo better, wow.


13.) 06 Jan 2021 08:58:58
If Edouard is Championship then Martial is League one.

Odsonne Edouard is a top prospect and in my opinion at the right club would challenge for the golden boot within two years in the EPL.


14.) 06 Jan 2021 10:36:25
Rice has really impressed me this season. I must admit i kept thinking what's all the fuss about but as i said he has really stepped up his game. If Rice is a genuine target i would be looking at trying to get him ASAP. If he has a good EURO'S his price will go up 20-30 million and we all know that West Ham just love Man United taking there best players. They still haven't forgiven us for taking Paul Ince over 30 years ago.
Rice and Pau Torres would be 2 great signings and would really improve the first 11.
I still think that we need a proper out and out centre forward. Haaland would be fantastic but not realistic.

Trying to be optimistic about the next few days, actually excited about dembele potentially signing (if we get him fit he is outstanding) . Agent pogba doing the groundwork behind the scenes would indicate his happiness at the club. Could also bring the best out of Martials game. With Sancho not favouring us, I'd say avoid. Hopefully Dembele with a loan to buy option could keep our budget for telles and a centre back. Upemecano, telles and dembele along with donny would be an incredible window and would help us push on all fronts. And the two boys coming into the U18 squad tonight show great potential and shows we are future planning.

Please seal the deals Ed.

The irony of Pogba allegedly persuading Dembele to join Utd is mind boggling! Just let that sink in!


 

 

24 Sep 2020 20:32:42
Feels like it's all getting a bit embarrassing now. We needed numbers in but instead we are pinning our hopes on a deal getting made for our whole budget with Sancho, who isn't even keen on coming.

Spoken to Sancho to know he wouldn’t want to come? If he doesn’t want to, I’m sure his agents etc would have communicated that to us.


2.) 24 Sep 2020 21:00:55
Ed002 says he is agreeable, do we need a player who agrees to come, agent fees were cheaper for the clubs we wanted to go to. Think we should be signing players hungry to wear the jersey. If we sign players desperate to come, when it goes wrong we can’t question their desire.


3.) 24 Sep 2020 21:51:00
Surely sancho is worth 28mil. More than Harry maguire.


4.) 25 Sep 2020 06:17:15
Thought Sanchez was supposed to be a Utd fan. That worked out well.

I’d say we need someone in at left back, if telles is that man, then go get him. Shaw isn’t dependable from an injury and positioning point of view. And Real Madrid letting Reguilon leave is a surprise, as was selling Hakimi. I think we need to decide on a plan. If signing prospects with the determination and drive to play for Man Utd is our way forward we should commit to that. That being the case the Kiev player fits the philosophy better. As would scratching Sancho (who will only be coming for the money) . Keeping greenwood out wide, getting in an alternative to rotate. Think Edouard should be signed to bolster centre forward position. I know a lot of people feel Scotland is a weaker league. But if we had signed van dijk and tierney at some stage as our prospects, we could have been sorted for years. For me, mykolenko, upemecano and Edouard, along with Donny would be an outstanding transfer window.

I would doubt the report he refused to play, think that’s just the Real Madrid soon on things because they too are probably wondering why a fantastic talent isn’t even making the bench. Don’t think the fans had turned against him til that point. I don’t think Dalot and ole is a comparison, because I think he is below standard required, but real are not what they were and bale could do a job.

I’d go for Sarr, Edouard, neves, skriniar. Two ready for first team every game, two to alternate with what we have to avoid stalling any progress already made.

Think Zidane has mucked him about a bit, and now he is shafting him back. But if you got him playing he could be excellent Would love us to move for neves and jimanez or even Edouard, if he were to leave Celtic, twice the player Dembele was at Celtic. But think a centre back is vital first before blowing the budget on Sancho, who doesn’t really want to be at the club and limiting Greenwood’s progress. Would avoid Grealish aswell. Looking at Fernandes, he playes like it means something to wear the shirt.

So do you think that as soon as the window shuts we stop looking, stop negotiations and start again. Negotiations are going too long because we are clueless and unprofessional. Does it take two windows to negotiate a deal for a player that wants to come? Yes it does if you are an amateur and don’t want to pay the fee correctly. We should have at least one signing wrapped up by now and organising others, but the ability isn’t there to close a deal, and is definitely not there to negotiate more than one deal at a time. Shambles from top to bottom with this set up. But we move on and support the team tonight!

He was given the armband today when the captain went off, that could suggest he is good enough and mature enough without another loan.

Ken, it has been a tough season for me. Eyes have been bleeding at some points! He has a lot of quality and has great attributes to step up. Every few years a player just has that bit more than everyone around him. Van dijk, tierney and to a lesser extent Wanyama. Edouard is the next one then possibly Ajer. He is different to what Leicester have, not a run in behind like Vardy, more a false 9, dripping deeper and linking play. Just when I see what we have in Martial, OE is twice the player. Will be worth £40 million within a month of a £15 mil transfer.

Didn’t think there would be Ed, thanks for the reply. We will no doubt pretend to chase Haaland and offer derisory amount after three months.

Martial is hard to watch. He constantly tries to go through spaces that aren’t there and his decision making is really poor. We need that proper number 9 with the movement and instinct.
