Next Kroos/Modric level midfielder.
Let's get him.
Never seen him play but sign him, if all the reviews are right.
Looks brilliant going by those highlights. Not sure what it would mean for Pereira though.
For all of you saying sign him are you envisaging him as a CM, AM or winger? He's probably better than what we have at the moment but is he better than Savic, Nabil Fekir or Jorginho? I would be happy with Jorginho as a playmaker and CM and either Fekir or Savic as the number 10 with the ability to play CM as needed. Is Soler better than these guys? There are so many good midfielders available at the moment that we could really improve our team if we sign two of them and clear out some of the dead wood from the squad.
Watched some of his vids and I think that is overrating him tbh. Doesnt really play as a proper CM .. more of an energetic RM and CM combo but not the elegant game controlling mid that we need. On the other hand that Savic kid does look the business, was pretty impressed with what I saw from him. Has a better footballling brain.

One good thing that came out of Neville's management of Valencia.
This guy in midfield three of Pogba and Matic. Herrera can fill in Carrick's shoes when the latter retires at the end of the season/out of contract. Fellaini is doing well under Mourinho, but if a good offer comes, he should be sold to make way for other players such as Pereira and Ozil(?).
Maybe Pereira being there is acting as another of United's Agent P to whisper sweet nothings in Soler's ears.
Soler, at least in this video, looks more technical than Herrera and has good weight in his ground passes. Good long passing skills as well and not bad at crosses.
Watching this video, man he's a very "Spanish" player if there's something called like that.
I can see the headlines already:
"Soler Eclipse: New United man overshadows Peps midfield maestros"
Yeah, technical type but not sure if they are disciplined enough to follow specific instructions like most top managers would demand especially Mourinho (at least defensively) but he looks pretty similar to the new generation of Spanish midfielders in the ilk of Isco, Asencio, and Ceballos.
"Soler-Powered United's Machines Trumps Oil-Funded City's Machines"
I am sorry...
Mourinho won't want a player unless he sees him disciplined enough, so I'm not worried.
And I thought mine was bad
Would be nice to have those type of players in the squad, that are skilful with ball control and passing. I dont mind a Fellaini type, just not as the Plan A or B.
Great buy imo
Tomorow : Madrid is interested in wonder spanish boy Carlos Soler.
Next week : Madrid seals their first Summer 2018 buy.
This man knows his onions.
This sort of "poor him" attitude is what is holding this Sleeping Giant of a club which is Manchester United back. We need ruthless decisions the kind Fergie made when he became manager kicking out the "bad eggs" of the drinking culture, now we need to kick out all the mediocrity..
I think he can be our David Silve type of esque
Soler for 40m would actually be a steal. I think he'll be our replacement for Mata/ Mhikitaryan.
Soler was born in Valencia and has climbed through the ranks from youth team to first team. If he's sold, or traded, to Man Utd just when his beloved Valencia are playing like title contenders, he'll set new standards for unhappy transfers when he arrives at Carrington. Whatever the cost, I don't think he'd be worth it because he would hate everything about Manchester and United.
Well, Peter Lim loves us so hopefully we can work something out. Even owns 50% stake in Salford City. Hopefully Gary Neville hasn't put him off.
Exactly. You are either contributing or you aren’t.
Ronaldo, Rooney, Scholes, Beckham, Giggs etc...all broke into the first team because they contributed from the outset. Yes they were rough diamonds but they were matchwinners even at 17/18 (well, most of them!)
These people that bang on like it’s our duty to nurture players are turning us into a soft touch. Shape up and take your chances or go and play for Sunderland
All those players got given a chance in the first team. Maybe Periera could contribute (has done on two loan spells) if given the chance?
Talks about a January move here now.
Over here as in Spain ?
Valencia needs money, they've been in the red three seasons running. We might be able to land him in January, especially if we toss in Pereira.
He has a €80m buyout clause according to AS https://en.as.com/en/2017/11/14/football/1510680253_054098.html
I think it is far less than that 40 million is what I have heard.
The Independent reported £40m as a possible price. And yes Valencia need to raise €45m to balance their books, so they may sell him for less than his buyout clause. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/manchester...-need-sell-carlos-soler-balance-books-1647135
If he is as good as advertised to push on for a starting spot in a 4-3-3 or 3-5-2, it would be nice to have a good stable of midfielders at 2x depth for once.
Or he might play out of his skin to show Valencia they were wrong to sell him
Not necessarily a good thing that he'd be on the market for peanuts, because there'd be a lot of competition. Going by what everyone's saying, we should be paying say €70m for him and securing it. Instead, everyone can afford €40m so he has so many places to choose from.
Thats common practice for Valencia unfortunately. Plenty of players who came through the system and played well for the first team, while Valencia were having a good half a season (another common thing for Valencia) and then the club cashes in on them instead of building the team around them for years, due to financial issues or coaches that have other plans. Theres also the fact that Valencia are relying heavily on loaned players, some of which have buy fees in their loan but thats no guarantee that a bigger team might not come in for them and turn their head.
Would bring back the drink if we ended up with a couple of players like Robson Moran McGrath and whiteside again in favour of mediocrity
I''ve seen him play a few times this season and I like what I've seen, he plays RM in the way Backham did but with more pace, however he can also operate in a midfield two which would make him a twofer given our current need for a RW option and creative CM cover for Pogba.
How is he viewed in Spain? I can't think of many talented Spanish players who haven't reached their early hype - his status in Spain would be a good indicator.
Is he really that good? Any regular Valencia watchers?
