Depay > Bale > Reus > Ronaldo. That's how we should prioritize our LF targets this summer imo.
Among the names Reus is my favorite. Too bad he just signed a new contract.
New contract only meant we have to cough up more mate. His injury record is what worries me tho.
Why is Ronaldo and Bale on the list? they unrealistic targets
bale and ronaldo would mean de gea going the other way...
what I meant is if we prioritize Depay, and most likely we will get him if we do, then no need to bother with the rest, since we only need one LF.
I dont see us breaking the bank for Reus after we just got DM7. Robben is injured so Bayern could be chasing him as well and they seem to be able to get any German players they want
we are definitely not getting ronaldo and most likely not getting bale or reus.

unfortunately we have a lot of gaps in the team but i'd say striker CB central mid and fullback will be the focus this summer.
Why would we go after 32yo Alves when Clyne, Danilo and Widmer are available this summer? Crazy rumor.
yeah im sort of confused. I thought we want to improve our defense not expose it even more
not crazy, alves is familiar with the style lvg wants to play, and would be a free transfer. he's 32 but still easily one of the best fullbacks in the world going forward.
+1
- you would take him over clyne or danilo seriously?
- it's not like we lack cash to have to run after freebies
- market is full of decent RB right now, you want to bypass them all for a 32yo? what will we do in 2 years time when none might be available?
- short term fix < long term plan

- how can alves survive epl tackles and pace?
- he will last 2 more years top at barca, changing league requires adaptation, time is against him
- look at what happens to maicon
- he is as much liable in defense as rafael
He still plays at the top level, domestic and NT. He'd be a stop gap measure. Only has a few years left. The smartest thing for your club to do would be to go for Clyne.
+1
the point wasn't about whether i want him, the point is if anyone could justify utd being linked with him. i could see why lvg might be interested. so it's not so crazy that we were linked with him.

we were linked with and pursued vertonghen even though that made no sense to me given his injury record. i could definitely see lvg wanting him here, especially after we signed valdez.
+1
It's not every day that you have arguably one of the best RBs of the past decade, two time CL winner, who's in the starting lineup both for Brazil and for one of the best Barça clubs ever, available for a free transfer.
We're going through a transition where a lot of our players are young and somewhat inexperienced, especially in our defense with Shaw, Rojo, Jones, Smalling, Rafael and even DDG who are all quite young still.
In the past two seasons alone we've lost scholes, giggs, Gary Neville, vidic, Rio, evra who have all been leaders on and off the pitch.

I'm not a massive fan of Alves tbh but I could see why we would be interested in getting him. He would without a doubt bring in lots of experience to the team as well, not to mention he's still constantly playing at the highest level.
meh there are tons of possible explanations as to why we are linked with one player or another. at the end of the day what's matter is whether it makes sense for the club to choose one instead of the other. In this case it is clear to me that Alves is not the solution.
For people saying falcao's performance against bahrain means anything, Nicklas bendtner scored a hat trick against the USA. would you say he is now a world great? not to mention that bahrain ranks 104 in the world 40 mil is a big gamble to be taking on him and would personally rather we went with someone else. Bahrain was pitiful in that game and any decent keeper would have stopped a good amount of the goals including those of falcao. Do not get carried away as if he did something amazing in that game because he did not. Also yes some players do lose it quickly. look at torres. even at atheletico, he is half the player he was during his liverpool and early athletico madrid days.
+1
Dude, he's still a United player and people wanna see him do well, It doesn't mean that they are gonna splash the 50 mil to get him.
Just chill and hope that he will contribute while he is here.
+8
Its like when we finally scored against Yeovil, why we celebrated so hard when they are just championship relegation candidate? Its because we are United supporters, we are happy whatever the team achieves, whether it might not mean anything.
+6
he hasn't turned out the way we wanted him too when we signed him on loan.

but...

I still hope he gains some form for the last few games of the season, especially the upcoming tough fixtures
i do hope he does well.

the concern is that he's not suited to this system. falcao's strength is in making runs into the channels, he's not a hold-up player and LVG's forwards need to be involved in the play.

he's not even lost it either, he's just trying to play a different role and it isn't working out. he plays too much in front of the defence right now instead of on the shoulder.

remember teams sit very deep against united as well so there's no space in behind for him to run into.

it's been very difficult for him here. i have no doubt that he could be fearsome again but there's probably a better investment we could make.
Score 3 against City and Chelsea Falcao, then we can dance!
It sometimes happens like that in football, players just don't fit a system and they do much better for their national team or a different club than your own - case in point: Bendtner for Denmark is a different beast compared to Bendtner for Arsenal.

I would question why LVG didn't figure this out prior to spending such a huge sum on him. The man is reputed to be very methodical and observant, surely he could have seen that Falcao thrives on those through balls and running off the shoulder of the defender?
+1
I really like LvG but i genuinely think he messed up big time with Falcao. I remember to this day being so pissed when we got him because it simply was not what we needed.

Di Maria, Shaw, Herrera and blind were all fantastic additions to the team. But then we went and got another expensive striker, who has just come back from injury, which would mean that we'd have to change our system completely.
Falcao coming in meant that we'd have to switch to a 2 striker formation, when neither RvP nor Falcao perform well alongside a partner.
Falcao coming in also meant Rooney would have to drop to AM, meaning Mata would be dropped, or sometimes dropped to CM, which would affect Herrera's playing time.
The worst part is that I don't even think Falcao or RvP are as off form as it seems. Under the 3-5-2 or 4-1-2-1-2 formation, we were playing some terrible football and the strikers were barely getting chances.
I wouldn't be surprised if RvP or Falcao did a better job as the #9 in the new 4-2-3-1 formation we're playing than Rooney, but we'll never know since Rooney won't be benched..

And if Falcao is to start, then Rooney would play in midfield which would affect the good chemistry that we currently have in the 5 man midfield.

This is part of the reason why I'm nervous for RVP's comeback because it will surely mean using Rooney as a makeshift midfielder again, or worse, switching back to a 2 ST formation..
Falcao is a pure striker, and I don't get why we'd get someone that expensive, and not even play him in his most preferred position...
You guys are wanna watch this .. believe me ..!!

i am from new york city. many of my frds are supporting NYC FC and it saddens me that i can't ever support them as long as they are affiliated with man city.
My girlfriend was affiliated with Man City. Was.
+2
There's always the Red Bulls.
red bulls play in new jersey....
@Cheshire lol at "affiliated" :)
so i decided to play ps4 after a long break of 2 months. and it happened to be against manchester city. so by 90th minute it was 3 : 3 and in injury time i got a free kick right outside the D. rooney was the free kick taker and it was a beauty. To top it up who ever it was he ran away and quit as losers!!!!!!!
LONG LIVE UNITED!!!!!!
What the point of quitting at the end when you still gonna get that L lol
i always think those people who quit at the end either were done playing and just turned the entire system off, or accidentally broke something or pulled the power plug.
+1
probably rage quit,like this guy

The most annoying situation is when they stop playing after they concede a goal or two and when you start running around with a goalkeeper they magically start playing again... Cmon
Man the worse with FIFA is when you're playing FUT and the opponent rate quits cause he's getting his ass handed to him, and it doesn't count as a win for you.
Or when you're winning 4-0 and your internet freezes for a moment and it counts it as a loss plus affects your DNF score.
I was winning the FUT birthday final 3-1 at the 80th min or so yesterday and it disconnected, counted as a loss and knocked me out of the tournament. Got so mad.
I'd just like to take a moment to remember how important RVP was in our 20th premier league title win, Lest we forget already!
+2
Hear hear.
+1
Lets take a moment to remember how Nani won us trophies for the last millenium
^ A moment is not enough
+5
I really want Pogba here; I think he could be a driving force in winning titles in the future, like Cantona was. The more I think about it, I think he'll go to Madrid. We sit here thinking, where will he fit there, they're already packed there .. but then thats what I thought about Rodriguez.. LOL. So.. by Barcelona's director's logic... Modric will be moved on ... because, lets face it .. he's the ugly one there.. LOL. Lets get Modric. hhehahea
+3
I agree, I think we need to give it a try and sign him back. I know he may go for other club, but he is simply what we lack. If we get him, midfield is set for the next 3-5 years? We will just focus on improving Defensive line then and look into striking options.
My fantasy signings for this summer would be Pogba, Hummels, Depay and Danilo. Then Harry Kane next summer. LOL
+2
How can you even entertain the idea of comparing Pogba to Cantona? One is a hired sword, the other a true samurai. One is a disrespectful traitor, the other a loyal hero.

It's ridiculous to keep running after Pogba while he has disrespected SAF and the club countless times in the media, stating himself he would not want to come back, and even tried to lure our own players away. Even if he becomes the best in the world I would not give a damn, would rather have someone less talented but committed to the club and honored the shirt, the history, the fans.

So many other viable options out there. Why the heck do we have to sacrifice our mantra to get back one that does not even respect it?
+4
Now now, he is not a traitor. Fergie just didn't consider him as early as Pogba had wanted and therefore agreed for him to find another club. He has not slated the club, his agent has. I'd welcome him back if he was willing.
+2
@Mustangs that's where you're wrong.

Carlo Ancelotti's recently made statement that indicated there was no room for the French midfielder "Pogba" in his team.

Days later Mino Raiola "Pogba's Agent" had this to say:
"Real Madrid is used to buy players as if they were towels, and when they're done with them, then they get rid of them in such fashion."

Further denying that his client playing for Madrid is as likely as people say. Take from it what you will. Pogba may or may not want to rejoin us, but no way is him going to Madrid a guarantee either.

@Drde you know too well that there was more to that story, than what you make it seem. Both parties made mistakes, it is what it is...
But, if there's the slightest of chances that Pogba might be willing to come back due to unfinished business...We would be a fool not to go after him!
+3
@mustangs you would sign harry kane after one good season? not even wait to see if he can replicate the goalscoring form in his second season
Pogba is on every top teams wishlist. Although I do think Madrid will lure him. Perez is always out for the hottest product and Pogba is the biggest in Europe. Khedira is already on his way out at the end of the season. Madrid might try to sell Isco,Modric or Illarrmendi and than go out for Pogba. Plus I won't take Ancelotti's word for it, he might not even be at Real Madrid next season.
I only hope Harry Kane is not another Andy Carroll
Depay would be the first name on my wish list. One of the hottest young prospects in Europe, plays in a position where we lack depth and has a connection with LvG already.
Earlier this year, Strootman would've been on it for sure too, but now I genuinely don't think it'd be a good idea to get him. I really like Schneiderlin and if he's available I'd love to get him too. I don't think he'd be that expensive either.
Dani Alves on a free transfer wouldn't be too bad either although his wages will definitely be on the high side.
I don't know if I'd be happy with us breaking the bank for Hummels. He's obviously an amazing player but he's pretty injury prone and his price tag will most likely be massive.

I'd sell my soul to have Pogba come back to us, lol. Whoever manages to sign him will have the best midfielder in the world for the next decade or so. I think I'd cry if we ever managed to get him back
@Drde: emotions aside (we still don't know the exact account) I compare him to Cantona in sense that Cantona was the piece that propelled us to title. We have a good squad.. What we need now is a tarismatic character. Pogba will dominate his position for years. The only thing worst than not having him would be him move to a Pl title contenders.

@cjaystacks: I did say Harry Kane after next season. I know the perils of one season wonders.
Pogba is scum
+2
It is SAF mistake to let him go, I have never denied that. However SAF have never kept on hammering that story in public, once he did it, but then when the boat has sailed he let it sails in peace. All that ensued have come out of Pogba's camp to ensure the club is shed in negative light.

And don't tell me his agent is the only one responsible. Pogba pays his agent ffs so if he does not agree with what his agent is doing, a word from him and those bullshits would have stop. But no. He could have denied his agent's talk in public (like many others did). But no.

As for Pogba not once did he show some gratitude towards the club's academy, coaches or fans. Every interview he did was to justify why he was forced to leave, how SAF ill-treated him, not once did he shut his ego up to speak objectively, or just shut up. If I have not forgive him then I can't forgive him even more now that he tried to poach Pereira away from us.

I wish him the best in his career. Will support him like any others if somehow the club signs him back. But I would never wish/call/wait/long for his return.
You do know the media likes to ask questions and any answer will be blown out of proportion. You're making too much of a deal out of what you heard lol...
Having worked in television and newspapers I can assure you that all those questions have been prep in advance, given long beforehand to the interviewee and his agent, and only with their consent shall the interview be conducted. So they meant what they said and know damn well what follows.

I'm making much of a deal out of this only because I don't think he deserves the shirt, the history and the fans of MU after what he and his agent have said.
Pogba's beef is mostly with SAF, he recently admitted he still loves the club did he not? Besides, we didn't do much for him other than most notably give him the chance to shine at Juventus. But hey, its your opinion if you hate the idea of him coming back, but I wouldn't mind him here, he's done nothing to warrant a negative view from me.
+1
I respect your opinion too mate but his "love the club" quote comes out how conveniently around Jan along with the transfer window. What I see is not commitment but a media fishing ploy by his agent to feed the rumor mill and subsequently raise his price tag by dragging us in his suitors poll.

Shameful bastard.
we'll have to take your word for it
well.. halftime in colombia's game and falcao already has a brace

2 goals and an assist in 30 min

Against BAHRAIN

Hope it boosts his confidence.
+5
meh , it is against Bahrain though,

may be that will boost his confidence and we can see the better of him in the near future!

@Karthik24 lool

Lol we're in sync
+3
A goal is a goal is a goal. He didn't score in the U21 match... Glad he's getting game time and hopefully some sharpness back into his game
+1
It might be against Bahrain, but if he was as awful or as past it as some people are claiming he is. He wouldn't have scored those goals either.

The difference is that he's getting service in that game or at least more than he usually does at Utd.

I'm not going to pretend like there weren't some goals he should've definitely scored when he was getting chances, but some people are foolish to really think that a player of his quality can lose all of it over night.
It isn't as "Black & white" as people think. I wouldn't be surprised if he moved to another club and continue his career like his "stunt" at United never happened.

....then those same people will be outraged and murmur about what could've been.
+4
It might be against bahrain but how many times have we played him through on goal this season? apart from the game away at qpr I can't remember any
+1
so much more space in these clips than he gets playing for us
