United Raid Brazil

Posted by Keano! on June 8, 2009

Brazilian starlet Dodo is looking set to join Manchester United this Summer in a move which will see the 17 year old join up with International teammates Rafael & Fabio Da Silva. Dodo, who currently plays with Corinthians, is expecting the move to be complete this Summer he said and it has extracted angry comments from Carlos Alberto, 1970 World Cup Winner.

Alberto was angered that big clubs like United were poaching around and snapping up young talent for pittance when the same player would sell for considerably more in the bigger market. But since the level of finances isn’t as high in South America, they gratefully accept the “low” offers from the worlds best.

A Tiger In Campbell?

Posted by Keano! on June 7, 2009

United youngster, Frazier Campbell who spent all of the 2008/2009 season on loan at Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur as part of the Dimitar Berbatov move, could well see himself playing his football at the KC for Phil Brown and Hull City next season.

The Englishman was a massive influence on the Hull side when they gained promotion to the Premier League in 2007/2008 scoring 15 goals in 34 appearances for the Tigers. He rejected Hull at the start of last season and ended up going to Tottenham Hotspur where he didn’t really have much success despite scoring twice against Liverpool in the Carling Cup.

United Move For Valencia

Posted by Keano! on June 7, 2009

According to reports from SkySports News, Manchester United have made a bid in excess of £16M for Wigan Athletic’s Antonio Valencia. It is understood that Spanish giants, Real Madrid, are going to challenge United’s bid for the Ecuadorian as he was apparently high on Florentino Perez’s list of “I want him and him…”

After a rather disappointing two seasons at United, Portuguese man Nani is seemingly second fiddle now to Ji-Sung Park and can’t get too much of a look-in these days at United. Sir Alex is supposedly willing to listen to offers for Nani as he looks to bring Valencia to Old Trafford.

Buy Or Develop?

Posted by Keano! on June 7, 2009

It’s the same case every Summer, and reports seem to get crazier by the year. It is of course, the United transfer wheel and speculation on who the wheel will stop at and bring back to Old Trafford. This Summer so far has been no different with Wigan’s Antonio Valencia, Bayern Munich’s Frank Ribery, Lyon’s Karim Benzema and Real Madrid’s Klass Jan Huntelaar all having reports linked to them that the English Champions are lurking with interest.

The departures list is also heavily populated, with Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Cristiano Ronaldo, Fraizer Campbell, Tomasz Kuszczak, Danny Simpson and Carlos Tevez all linked with moves away from the club although some of them are complete media talk and seriously doubt there’s any truth to the stories. Gary Neville to Middlesbrough being the main one.

Ronaldo’s Price Tag Reads £75M

Posted by Keano! on June 6, 2009

In the wake of Florentino Perez’s claims that he would be looking to bring Brazilian ace, Kaka, to Real Madrid and follow that coup up with Manchester United’s star, Cristiano Ronaldo, according to The Mirror, Sir Alex Ferguson has stuck a price tag on Ronaldo reading £75M and not a penny less.

The price, which would be in excess of €85M, would be the highest transfer fee ever and Real Madrid are capable of funding the switch. Perez recently claimed he was going to turn his attention toward Ronaldo as a deal with Kaka is seemingly complete although the story is not yet officially confirmed.

Perez: Next Up, Ronaldo!

Posted by Keano! on June 4, 2009

Real Madrid’s new president who was once responsible for the famous Galactico’s at Madrid has stated that he will look to bring the worlds best to Madrid this Summer. Florentino Perez who looks set to complete a €65M deal for Kaka from AC Milan has wasted no time in indicating where his attention will turn to next, and it is of course, Cristinao Ronaldo.

Despite Real being a little more quiet this Summer and United adamant Ronaldo won’t be going anywhere, the deal is surfacing again with Perez reportedly committed to paying £80M to United to secure Ronaldo’s signature. Ronaldo recently said he was unsure where he would be next season after defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League final. Real are apparently going to bide their time this Summer rather then taking last seasons bullish approach with offers ever second day almost.

Nani Optimistic About United Future

Posted by Keano! on June 3, 2009

Much maligned Winger, Nani has stated that he is happy at United and insists he is going nowhere despite reports that Sir Alex is going to offload some of his squad. Nani who didn’t play as big a part in United’s season as he did last year will feel he could have played more often in the season gone by, but despite the lack of games coming his way, he still loves it at the club.

The Portuguese has 6 goals and 4 assists to his name for the 2008/2009 campaign with some stunning goals it has to be said. Despite these stats, United fans aren’t entirely impressed with his lack of end product and consistency, some believing he is trying too hard to copy his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo.
