United Set To Spend Big?

Posted by Keano! on June 13, 2009

Controversial owners of Manchester United, the Glazer’s, have produced a rare statement saying they are fully behind Sir Alex’s plans for the team and have funds ready and available for the Scot to use as he pleases.

With Cristiano Ronaldo’s pending £80M transfer to Real Madrid, United will be showing some impressive balance sheets for the season gone by with the revenue raised from merchandising, TV rights, competition successes and now, transfers.

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?

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.

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.

Tevez, Nani & Park Set To Leave?

Posted by Keano! on May 29, 2009

Manchester United may be about to get rid of four first team players after Ferguson admitted that the team would be re-shaped after the final loss in Rome last Wednesday. Carlos Tevez who didn’t return to Manchester with the United squad is now a free agent as his two year loan deal with United ended when United’s dreams of lifting the Champions League trophy for the second successive season came to an end.

According to The Daily Mirror Tevez looks a sure certainty to be playing his work-horse style football elsewhere next season, but a surprise claim that Ji-Sung Park could be on his way out have surfaced too. Park who scored some notable goals this season, such as Chelsea away and Arsenal away in the Champions League, was thought to be a favourite of Sir Alex’s but the South Korean may see himself moved on to make way for a well known United target in Antonio Valencia of Wigan Athletic.
