Manchester United are in for Cruzeiro's Lucas Silva according to his agent Luiz Rocha.
GIVE THEM ANDERSON
United in with bla bla bla these player but nothing happend.woodward glazzer board n our scout are sheettt as usual..
+1
Liverpool will pay Balotelli £90k a week to play for them, while Manchester United will pay Nani £91k a week to play for Sporting Lisbon...

LOL somethings wrong!! We need to start clearing out the deadwoods! No more sentiments.
This is definitely a headscratcher, but tbf Nani's wage and contract was more of a Moyes blunder than sentiment.
eww gave him a 4 year deal and he's on 92 k per week, it wont be easy to shift him. he will want

a) a team that can afford his wages
b) a team that plays in CL, fights for trophies, and where he could be a regular

maybe if he has a good season sporting will take him back permanently. that's the problem with having these players on huge wages, it is near impossible to shift them if they suck. maybe if we cant get the targets we want we should make sure not to settle for less.
so easy for liverpool to sign a player... at a good price....
the opposite is true for us

di maria and khedira are technically up for grab... wondering if woodward give the authorization for LVG to make a move, hmmm maybe not....
+1
Makes you love United even more huh?

Gotta work hard for what you earn, no shortcuts.
We really need to take advantage of this early season.

Swansea: L (1-2)
Sunderland (A)
Burnley (A)
QPR (H)
Leicester (A)
West Ham (H)

After this opening round of fixtures, the 'tougher' ones begin.

Everton (H)
WBA (A)
Chelsea (H)
Man City (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Arsenal (A)

Point being, we need to really hop on the non-top-6-club fixtures when we can. We have another stretch in January and February where 9 games are sandwiched between two Tottenham games, the only top 6 club we play in that time period. I want to see some consistency that we didn't see last season, particularly against the smaller clubs.
Yeah, the next five fixtures imo are the deciding factor if we are title contenders this season. If we get at least 10-12 points out of those remaining 5, I think we will do ok in terms of the league.

Makes you wonder how we will do in cup competitions as well. I'm sure LvG will assess his squad and buy what he needs, if not this window, surely the next.
Quite a clever piece done by the Guardian on LVG's career, and the graphics are pretty funny as well--puts a little humor in the Iron Tulip. Enjoy guys.

The AZ formation look really interesting and chaotic, but don't know how its works lol, gonna check it out now...

Edit: Wow, didn't know that Dembele was LVG's key player at that time. That Dembele played some decent football comparing to today's Dembele.
It makes me wonder why we didn't go for Dembele when SAF was a round. Maybe not your marquee midfielder like Kroos or Fabregas, but he had a ridiculously cheap release clause (15mil?, 16mil?) and was a dribbling, passing, pacey workhorse.

"If one had to choose between shagging Ms World and dribbling from halfway down the pitch, past 4 defenders and scoring at Anfield, it would be a tough decision to make.

Fortunately, I have done both"

Legend.
LOL what a legend!

Reminds me of that quote that went "I spent 90% of my money on women and alcohol. The other 10% I wasted"
I don't know who said it though
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/aug/21/paul-scholes-scared-manchester-united-wilderness

This is ridiculous, he wants us to sign 4 real madrid players and dortmund's captain? come on paul, lets be realistic here.
+2
Yeah the list of players is just absurd.

I think he is right on a few things but I can't help but feel Scholes is pandering to the media diatribe, he launched that attack on Rooney during the WC for seemingly no reason at all as well.

He is my favourite ever player both for his game and his personality, I was very surprised that he went into a career as a columnist / pundit after football, it doesn't suit him, just feels like a big name on the same regurgitated gutter press.
We should just trying chucking £70m at Madrid for Khedira and Di Maria.
Varane, Xabi and Mats are unrealistic tbh, but even Scholes admits that landing them would probably never happen.
He's just using them as examples of players we should be going for. You can see the type of player that Scholesy thinks we need. Kroos and Fabregas would also fall in that category but of course we didn't go for them.
Khedira wants to leave also but we haven't been linked to him all summer. Makes no goddamn sense to me.

How often are players like Fabregas, Kroos, Di Maria, Khedira available?! If we don't get at least one of them, I'd be really pissed. Just like we let Thiago and strootman go last season as well
+2
Khedira and Di Maria are our most realistic targets atm. Considering their situation at RM we can get both.

Just give them Fellaini and Anderson ;)
+1
i dont care about getting di maria to be honest, we all know we need a CM or two and CBs. spending 50 million pound on a winger would be stupid if we want to continue using this 3-5-2 shape.
By the looks of it I think LVG would prefer to play a 433 but we only have Januzaj to play on the wing atm.
So this guy get a six months ban for doing this lol what a joke

"Di Maria asked to go in the summer and has rejected an offer from the club, The player has to look for a solution.

"If when the transfer market closes he's still here, he will work with us like last season and there will be no problem.”

- Ancelotti

Faint hint of a chance? PSG publicly ended their interest in Di Maria a few weeks ago, bit of talk they might go in for him on loan though...

He also confirmed Khedira has asked away from the club as well.
@Kreddevil / Badge

Cant see us getting both, too much competition sniffing around Khedira, most notably Arsenal and Bayern.

Di Maria we've got an outside chance of getting.

PSG have already said they cant afford him with the FFP stipulations but there is talk they might take him on loan, not sure how that would work as they have a wage embargo as well and have not sold anyone significant I don't think, they've brought in Luiz too who is hardly on pocket money, I don't see Madrid covering any of the wages neither.

Have Monaco made any major moves this summer? I cant think of any, City and PSG took the FFP bat to the face and I think Monaco are now watching their step, if they wanted Di Maria surely they would have asked for him in part exchange for J.Rodriguez, I've not heard of any interest from Monaco anyway.

Probably the only reason I have any optimism on signing Di Maria, there doesn't appear to be stiff competition atm, big ask getting him to drop from a CL winning team to a team trying to get back in the CL though...
Ancelotti on Khedira situation: “It’s a different situation to Di María. He’s not asked to go. He’s rejected an offer to renew, but has a year of contract. We’ll see what happens."
If we can get both of them it will be a succesful summer for woodward right?i know our defend weak atm but for me with khedira n maria joining us we can cover the defend a little bit.is there any top club need to sign any midfield atm,the answer is only us i guess..
http://m.bbc.com/sport/football/28883329

It's on BBC too. Must be somewhat true. Aren't Monaco after him? I feel like a sugar daddy club will buy him.
@StretEndArising

Cheers for clearing up the Khedira quotes.

Sky Sports said Khedira had also asked to leave which doesn't look to be the case, although with one year left on his contract and a rejection of a new deal he might as well have.
@MUFC1990

Agree on that.i really hoping to see a new cm cdm for us,it hv been our weak spot for long time but i would not say no for maria.he is world class winger n much better winger that we have atm since CR leave.hopefully we can bring 1@2 player before its close..
Since PSG want Di Maria, why don't we go in and get Veratti from them, I think they might be willing to negotiate :P
@REDDevil98
Veratti? When was the last time you looked at your team sheet. lol. How many small playmakers are you hoping to horde?
Better than getting no one, United have Fellaini so that might even out LMAO
So both khedira and di maria have asked to leave the club. I wonder if we will get either one.
Yeah I've posted the quotes above mate, couldn't find the Khedira ones.

Straight from the horses mouth, both would be pretty damn amazing but just one of those two would be brilliant, I'd like to say I was optimistic though lol.
Maria or khedira if one of those??
actually nvm both have rejected contract extension but only di maria has asked to leave. either way we should bid on khedira, he's a great player and only has a year on contract. hopefully his wages are not ridiculous.
I prefer Khedira if I it between those two, we need a CM that command the midfield and Khedira would be perfect if we can't get Vidal
