Manchester United chief exec Ed Woodward flew back from Australia to handle what was deemed urgent transfer business today, but who is the player/players that United are looking to wrap up?
Last week David Moyes confirmed that United’s attempts to bring in new faces were progressing well, and whilst United’s number one target Thiago Alcantara joined Bayern Munich, United have continued to make moves in the transfer market.
A move for Cesc Fabregas was mooted and whilst Cesc told Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova that he wanted to stay at the Nou Camp, Barcelona are said to need the money thus making a move possible.
Another player that Woodward could be wrapping up is Fellaini, the midfielder’s buy out clause is nullified in under a month meaning he would no longer be available for £23.5m. United have been linked with Fellaini heavily and in the past few days it has been reported that he would fancy a move to United ahead of Arsenal, allowing him to link up with former manager David Moyes again.
But the most interesting player that could be heading to Old Trafford is a player we have been linked with before, and whilst the rumours died down are now back with a vengeance!
Daniel Levy was adamant that Luka Modric wouldn’t end up at Old Trafford, unlucky David because it appears the decision is out of your hands. According to Sky Italia, Manchester United have reignited their interest in the Real Madrid player.
Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that the player is ready to move on from the Bernabeu now Mourinho has left and United are ready to provide him with a home.
Modric, as you will remember was the deciding factor in Real’s win over United at Old Trafford scoring a spectacular effort that essentially put United to the sword.
It could be a curve ball, and United bringing in a player that we aren’t even expecting. But having missed out on Thiago, the news that we’re actually going to bring in someone, someone big according to Sky too, makes for exciting times.
PS. I left Ronaldo out on purpose, if he comes back you’ll be able to see my reaction to it in the British press. I’ll be the guy arrested for doing naked star jumps in front of Buckingham Palace or in layman’s terms – it’s not going to happen.
