khadeira is going to bayern.another player who could have improved our squad has slipped right under our nose. congrats woodword.
You forget that the player must also want to come.. If Khedira has the option to join either Bayern or United, as things presently stand the odds are that he will choose/or has chosen Bayern. They are currently one of the top sides in European football - let alone the world.
I agree with @stret it's also the players choice whether he wants to play for us or not.

Yes we're a big club but it doesn't mean every player we're linked to wants to join us.
He would have been a good buy but here's a player that has just come back from an ACL injury; so that knee isn't going to be as strong as it used to be which means another injury prone player in the ranks.

Bayern are fortunate to already have a vast amount of CM's so they can quickly have cover if Khadeira is injured.
What's with Di Maria's wife liking all the MUFC fan pics LOL

Football players their Wag's , kids and parents should be banned form using social media sites during transfer windows .

Now just waiting for Dailyfail breaking of United in sensational bidding war with Madrid fans FC for Di Maria .
Just bring them on a trip to North Korea.
So Di Maria and Khedira were not in the RM squad yesterday. Hoping for some good news.
I think di maria will end up at utd .but the downside is you'll end up paying exorbitantly high fee plus wages for him.Thereby putting a dampener on the excitement. I am excited for Balo because we paid loose change for him, if he would have costed us like 50 million i wouldn't have been happy at all. I think same is the case with Di Maria
and i think the downside is not so bad considering the upside di maria can provide if he joins us. besides di maria > balotelli.

@Ankitarora

lol

You're paying loose change for Balotelli because that's what he is worth given the risk and the fact his goal scoring for AC has been nothing special, a lot of the goals are from the spot, there is a reason AC are selling him on the cheap.

Di Maria is one of the best players in the world, many would argue he was Madrids best player in the latter stages of last season, this guy creates openings with the best of them.

You cant compare deals for the two, Di Maria is on a totally different level to Balotelli, no comparison.

yes obviously , Di Maria is worth 40m in my eyes , and since its an inflated market, gonna be like 50-55m. Great player.

Real question is , do you need Di Maria ? is scoring goals and creating chances a problem for united ?.. it think not.
Its gonna be Mata all over again.
@Karthik Now let's not sound too spoiled, the rest are...inconsistent performers

And by performers I mean clowns!!!

No no no just having a laugh, I rate Valencia. And Young has at least shown us promise, but they are not on Januzaj's level of penetration and skill. so unfortunately... unless they're AT LEAST CONSISTENT in their work ethic and production rate, they deserve to be ... AT MOST ... on the bench... that is, if we are to reach the top of the league ever again.
If we want to remain behind city and chelsea, then Young and Valencia can start and perform at their very best just a few times a season and get on the highlights every preseason.

To the Liverpool fan, United with and without Di Maria would be a difference like night and day. It may not be our most pressing concern over DMs and another defender, but make no mistake, we'll be a far scarier entity with Di Maria on the field. You'd be kidding yourself to imagine otherwise
Have you seen our wing options? Valencia,young and Januzaj!! Only Januzaj is good and the rest are s**t.

Considering we will be playing 4-3-3 at times,I do think we need Maria!! Players like him won't be available always.
I don't agree with that Ashup.

Mata despite being a great player possesses quality's that you could argue were already in the United team between Rooney, Kagawa and Januzaj. Mata was bought in the middle of a tragic season to try and give the club a lift, despite his unquestionable quality he was a panic buy.

There is no one like Di Maria at United, no one, Januzaj is the only player that possesses similar quality's and he is still so raw, no comparison between the two atm.

The fact Di Maria can play either flank and CM in a midfield 3 would make him an invaluable player and a fantastic signing should it happen ofc.

I do agree we need to patch up other areas as well but this idea that Di Maria would be a square peg for a round hole is bull imo.

For the record I do think chance creation is an issue at United, the attack is far too stale, everything is played in front of the opposition, our wingers save for Januzaj are incompetent, they don't commit the opposition enough and when they do they rarely go past players, in fact no one in the United team save for Januzaj really turns the opposition or goes past players, our wingers are also far too predictable and lack a quality final ball.

Looking at the quality LVG teams I would argue Di Maria is exactly the sort of player that is missing from the system.

I don't get why signing Di Maria would prohibit us from patching up other departments as well, people need to stop talking as if there is a set budget and signing Di Maria would stop us from signing others, there is no logic to that at all.
Young is not a wing "option"... One of the wing position belongs to him permanently... this is one of world's unsolved mystery... :p

Tho Di maria would really be exciting... who cares if 80m is spent... it is not your money anyways and this ppl are disgustingly loaded...
all i was saying was di maria for 40 million great buy. but di maria wfor 65 million plus 270 k wage..not so much
@1990

I see what you are saying mate and also kinda agree, but di Mari would be more of a luxury signing. A position where you can play, since its 3-5-2
Valencia
Young
Januzaj
Rafael
Even Shaw can play LWB.

If I were a united fan, I'd rather see that 50 odd million spent on someone like

Khedira
Vidal
Bender
Miranda
..

You get my point.
If we was to sign someone like Di Maria the 3-5-2 would probably be abandoned, it was quickly changed after like 25 minutes against Swansea.

3 at the back wont work in the EPL, It never has, its good for the players to learn new things though and its probably the only way were going to accommodate Mata, Rooney and RVP in their preferred positions but it wont last, long term it wont be functional and LVG will sacrifice an individual for the needs of a team, he has shown that many times.
man in our position,i'd want di maria at any cost..have you seen how he played against bayern? better than ronaldo..
have you seen our midfielders play? absolute shite and no penetration at all. Our current wingers can't pass or challenge defenders to save their lives apart from januzaj.
i guarantee if di maria were to play for us we wouldnt be paying him 270k a week for him to pass backwards like young and valencia.
Why the hell is there a comparison between Balotelli and Di Maria? lol. Its like me saying Liverpool got ripped off for Lallana when we got Rojo for cheaper. Liverpool have splashed a lot of cash over the years and Rodgers has spent over £200m in 2 seasons. Not like they are penny pinching. It really doesn't matter anyway, just thought it was a weird comparison. Regarding any Di Maria fee, if we do buy him. Adidas will foot the bill in the end :)
jeez...

1) theres no downside, ever, for signing di maria, at any fees
2) is he the one we need right now? damn straight he is... valencia, young and zaha combined are not even as good as di maria at his worst...

In essence, Di Maria would improve ANY TEAM he wishes to play for, judging by his work rate and creativity. He could play most positions in midfield and right or left forward positions so if I were the money man at Utd, this would be the make or break investment for me this season. I think he is that good...
LMAO

Terry: Playing for Manchester United has always been my childhood dream. Hopefully I'll join them this summer

Giggs:No you won't!!
Aww, he's got a cute lil family

Rojo means Red! Let's hope he's a long-term gem like when we got Vida and Evra 9 years ago
Awww...his kid is so cute!
i forgot about the trip to mk dons on tuesday for COC. powell varela and wilson will probably start that game. also now makes sense why they didn't play vs liverpool vs the u21.
Excited to see Powell and Varela.
Varela>Rafael just my opinion,watched enough to make this opinion.
They both have equal potential, but Rafael could get dropped for Varela if he doesn't stay fit imo.
I'm excited to see them all in action but let's not get carried away here. Remember a few years back Rafa was the best RB in the league, second maybe to Zabaleta? That quality doesn't just go away. He's just had some trouble with injury (actually the whole team had).
Come to think about it... Has Varela even played game in the league? How can you say he is better without even seeing him kick a football in an United shirt (first team, premier league... I know he played for reserves etc)
Reece James, don't know why he was on the bench last game. That was a horrible decision.
Playing through a transfer deadline day press conference in my ManUtd FM2014 file today.

Reporter: "Perhaps surprisingly, we've yet to see you dip into the transfer market this window. Are there plans to do so before the deadline passes?"

My first choice: "We're going to try to get something done, watch this space."

Edit: Lol @ Kreddevil
