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.

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing up Real Madrid’s front man, Klaas Jan Huntelaar as they look ready to release Carlos Tevez who is currently out of contract with United who aren’t looking likely to pay the £30M asking price for him.

With Tevez seemingly set to go, United may look to replace their man with a target of last Summer. Huntelaar was a rumoured target of Ferguson’s last Summer but opted for Dimitar Berbatov. Huntelaar is supposedly available at a cool 15-17 million pounds and Real would listen to offers.

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.
