Support us in our quest for 264 subscribers before RedNews264 in August 2019 at

Last year, for 2018/19, we set a target of 254 and an incredible 389 Manchester United fans stepped forward during pre-season to support your fanzine.

The reason we do this - we're just a normal fanzine without any big business behind us - is to ensure we continue. Founded in 1987, bound by print, but now also available by pdf and in digital format as well, with the whole point of this campaign so that the fanzine can survive and flourish for its next season ahead without fear. It's vital we can plan ahead without worrying month by month. With sales at the ground affected by weather and a change in culture, 'is that the programme, no', we are an independent unofficial Manchester United supporters' fanzine which no longer can survive on just selling at matches, and we have to adapt to that change.

The advanced subscriptions protect us, which sees you the readers receive the fanzine for the following season, all 10 editions from August-May, and ensures the survival of Red News for another year. Thank you

Raphael Varane (Madrid) isn't coming to MUFC anymore, although its not clear if it was ever likely to happen anyway

Daniel James seems certain to join MUFC and everybody thinks its a good thing (well they will do until he makes his first misplaced pass in a United shirt....)

As does Newcastle player Sean Longstaff, who its claimed has agreed to join us. His name suggests we'd be signing a tall Polish player, but in fact it turns out he is in fact a moderately sized English midfielder.

De Gea has rejected MUFCs latest contract offer, but don't worry about it as Ed will save us #eek

Harry Maguire is still on our hit list, but with city also interested it appears most think we won't be seeing a Harry at MUFC next season

Pogba could actually be staying at MUFC and end up as captain

Mata could be off to Newcastle to wait on tables with Benitez

Pedro is another player linked - A young lad who plays as striker for Fluminense - Real Madrid wanted to sign him until he got a cruciate ligament injury - now we are apparently interested ... probably to give Phil Jones and Rojo somebody new to talk to on the injury table next season #hmm

50m on Rakitic anyone ? this appears to be the fee that MUFC would need to pay to get him from Barca so he could come and play in the Europa League and compete for the top four #hmm

... and we only have a few more weeks of this to come #joy
