At the end of this season Nathaniel Clyne will only have 1 year left on his contract. Would be a good buy in the summer.

Falcao interview

http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Exclusive-Interviews/2014/Dec/Radamel-Falcao-exclusive-interview-with-Inside-United-magazine.aspx?pageNo=1

Van Gaal's pre Aston Villa press conference

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nI1mbJ7JzU&feature=youtu.be&a
In every interview Falcao gives it's clear he's desperate to play and impress. He's also stated multiple times he wants to stay here permanently.

Seriously I hope he doesn't put too much pressure on himself that it affects his performances. Really want him to succeed here, seems like such a positive, genuinely nice guy.
+1
so carrick IS actually captain. he is second to rooney in official captaincy but apparently we have 2 captains and a vice captain

http://www.footytube.com/news/guardian/manchester-united-s-michael-carrick-is-lauded-by-louis-van-gaal-L36177
"I have three captains," said Van Gaal. "You have a sequence: Wayne Rooney is one, Carrick is two, Fletcher three."
So this is probably what we will see tomorrow.

-------------Wilson--RVP
-------------------Mata
Young--Rooney--Herrera--Valencia
------Evans----Carrick----Jones
-----------------De Gea

Hopefully Falcao can get around 30-40 minutes.
Carrick against Benteke is suicide.
If you want to worry about anyone then you should worry about Evans. Carrick has done a good job in defense.

Also Benteke has only scored 1 goal so far.
There are 3 CBs. Carrick won't be marking benteke on his own.
If Carrick is played in a 3 men defense, Benteke will pair himself up against him immediately and in all likelihood dominate Carrick aerially and physically.
That's not to slate Carrick, but you have to pick your battles when playing him in defense. He's not a centre-back by trade, and some scenarios don't suit him.
Even Smalling got floored by Benteke two years ago. Jones is a more suitable opponent, and it will be easier for him to mark Benteke in a back 4 than a back 3.
Lukaku tried to pair himself up to Mcnair and that didn't work out for him, so I'm sure Carrick will be fine.
I would like to see this team tomorrow:

DDG
Rafael - Jones - Evans - Ugh
Carrick
Herrera - Rooney - Mata
RVP - Falcao
+2
Rafael wasn't training with the team so I don't think he is fit for the Aston Villa match
He has trained fully for 2 weeks already.
Ya but he didn't train with the team for the Aston Villa match so I doubt he will play.
While speaking to reporters at the Aon Training Complex on Friday, van Gaal was asked to provide an update on the two South American defenders. "Rafael is not injured," the boss explained. "He was already fit last week, but I have to select and I have to compare.

"When I have more players fit, I have to select. You will have to wait and see, of course. I have to compare. Rafael? I can take him in the 18. Rojo? No. We have five injuries and one [Marouane Fellaini] is ill, so they are not coming up. Rojo has a rectus femoris [thigh] injury."
Rafael didn't train with the team, that is all I am saying. You would think a player would train with the team the day before the match if he was going to play.
Expiring contracts:
June 2015: Falcao, Carrick, Wilson, McNair, Amos, M. Keane, R. James, Fletcher, Anderson, Cleverley
June 2016: DDG, Jones, Rafael, RVP, Lingard, Smalling, Evans, Lindegaard, Powell, Chicha, Henriquez, Young

Add to those Mata & Fellaini, whose places are not yet secured, and Nani & Zaha, who are dispensable, there might be some truth after all about a BIG overhaul of the dramatis personae this summer (and next) for a midfielder, a right-back, one or two central defenders, a wide player and a striker.
Young's contract seems to be taking a decade to expire
+1
I think Mata's spot is secure unless a big offer comes in for him. With the CL we'll need depth and his quality will be needed as CM. He's still our best pure #10 and his numbers since he joined us are frankly pretty damn impressive despite it all
+2
I agree LVG might keep Mata for squad rotation if we get back in CL but I still have a feeling he has not been that impressive despite all the stats. This article explains it somewhat:

http://eplindex.com/62763/impressive-square-peg-juan-mata-perfomance-analysis-liverpool.html
Mata is still a world class CAM. Imo his current form isn't that far from his glory days at Chelsea, the main difference is that he has to share the spotlight more.

He's still one of the best, so I would hate to see him go
young got a 5 year deal same time de gea and jones. cant believe he's been here almost 4 years already.
I just realize that most of the CBs we are being linked with are right footed. Except Vertonghen (lefty) and Howedes (a bit ambipedal like Evans).

I figure that we need 6 CBs in our squad and under LVG principle, there must be 3 righties and 3 lefties. Blackett and McNair/Keane are back up. Rojo is the only senior lefty and Jones is the best righty. So Smalling and Evans are the most susceptible to go if we sign a new CB.

If we sign a WC CB (right footed), it is most likely Smalling who will make way cuz Evans can play on the left. However, recent performances dictate that Evans deserves the boot more than Smalling. So our only options are aforementioned Vertonghen and Howedes. Though neither are really WC.

Do you know any other left footed or ambipedal CB that we can go after?
+1
I know his injury record isn't great and he's been struggling a bit for form, but I'd still love to see Hummels in red. At 25, he has so many years ahead of him..

Nicolas Otamendi has also been linked with a move, which is an interesting rumour.

Don't see any 'big' transfers this winter, which means I don't see us signing a CB because it has already been made clear that there will be no short-term buys. Highly unlikely our top CB targets will be available in Jan. I do think we'll see 3-4 academy players though. More than a few exciting youth prospects being linked with us..
Evans would be my choice, still making daft errors at his age, costing us points! Smalling has potential to be really good as long as he stays fit
aymeric laporte, lefty, brilliant, only 20. saul niguez, mostly a midfielder but left footed and brilliant, also 20.
Didn't know Laporte is a lefty. Thx. His release clause is 30+M though. And Bilbao is not going to negotiate.
The way van Gaal deals with the media reminds me of the old Fergie days. Where he would put them into place and unlike last season where the media were making a mockery of Moyes.
+2
exactly my though, lvg's character is really needed to manage a heavily media exposed team like united.... so glad we have him
thats what annoyed me the most about moyes. he says the most retarded s**t in the interviews
Tabloids mostly daily fail and star report that De Gea has agreed to sign a new contract at Old Trafford and has rejected any possibility of moving to Real Madrid. Although there is nothing official yet, I hope there is some truth to these stories. It will be a massive boost for us!

Edit: No new contact yet is the latest update.
