It appears that Manchester United have learned from this summer’s transfer debacle, and have begun actually sourcing alternatives in the very possible case that their transfer plans don’t actually come to fruition.
United employed the “if at first you don’t succeed try and until you become a laughing stock” plan and it worked a treat after Barcelona and Cesc Fabregas were harassed like the girlfriend of a clingy boyfriend. Having seen that fail, United scrambled around Europe looking at all and sundry then eventually settled for the girl next door, Marouane Fellaini.
This time though United won’t be caught with their proverbial pants down!
United are said to be interested in pursuing Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera again come this January but with the Basque club known for being hard to deal with, could turn their attention to France.
Club Call claim United will pursue Montpellier’s 23 year old playmaker Remy Cabella if a Herrera deal can’t be struck in an effort to add a creative spark to the midfield.
The midfielder has picked up the slack after Younes Belhanda left for Dynamo Kiev and hasn’t done too bad a job apart from on Thursday of course, when United ran the rule over him in his side’s 0-0 draw with Rennes.
Given a 4/10 by Maxifoot who claimed that Cabella missed passes, made bad decisions and let the game pass him by, Cabella definitely made the kind of impression you want to make on potential suitors!
Valued at €100m by his boss, I think I’d rather we stick with Anderson than pay that!
