Ander Herrera BilbaoThis report is taken from regarding a bid made by United for Atletico Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.

Athletic Bilbao say they have turned down an offer from Manchester United for midfielder Ander Herrera.

Club president Josu Urrutia claims a firm bid for the 24-year-old was lodged on Thursday and immediately dismissed.

And Urrutia says the only way Herrera will leave the club is if he demands a move and his release clause – reported to be £30.75m – is met.

Martinez wants an end to speculation as United make new bid

Roberto MartinezRoberto Martinez believes it’s time the powers-that-be sorted out the timing of the summer transfer window to end unhelpful speculation surrounding players.

Martinez was speaking generally in a press conference about how disruptive it is to have transfers available while the season was open and I couldn’t agree more.

He was reacting after United tabled an improved £36m joint-bid for Fellaini and Baines earlier this week but had it swiftly rejected.

Reports emerging Everton star has asked to leave the club

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 7:23 pm

baines2_2441488bThey’re only rumours but TalkSport are reporting Leighton Baines has asked his club to allow him to leave thus paving the way for his dream move to Old Trafford.

The Everton fullback has up until now kept completely silent and been praised for his conduct while United attempted to lure him away. But, as the windows-end looms ever larger, it appears Baines has lost patience and changed his tactics.

Old United target could offer cheap last-minute option

Tag: Opinion Piece,Transfer Stories @ 11:25 am

Mesut OzilWith time now of the essence to finalise one or two of the ‘will-he won’t-he’ deals to finalise his squad for the season, events in Spain last night could offer David Moyes the opportunity to grab himself a last-minute bargain regardless of what develops with Wayne Rooney.

During Real Madrid’s fixture versus Grenada last night, Mesut Ozil trudged despondently down the tunnel signalling his dissatisfaction at the decision to substitute him.

Did this trigger the opportunity for Ozil to welcome offers from interested parties?

What’s the Mata with some United fans?

Tag: Opinion Piece,Transfer Rumours @ 6:35 pm

Soccer - FA Cup - Quarter Final - Manchester United v Chelsea - Old TraffordIt’s an unusual place to be in when you’re sat laughing at some of the articles and comments posted by United fans who claim to be ‘sick’ and ‘angry’ about United’s summer business and about the standard of it’s current squad.

Since July 1st when David Moyes officially took control of the club, the positivity, support and backing he’s receiving from United fans has quickly ebbed away in some quarters. It’s embarrassing to hear many Reds talk so negatively about our chances of title success this season and more depressing to hear many judging Moyes on his performance in the transfer market over his performance with the current squad. This isn’t Fantasy Football or Football Manager you know, this is real life for David Moyes.

Moyes’ tricky Premier League debut overshadowed

Tag: Manchester United,Match Preview @ 8:00 am

David Moyes on benchAs Manchester United debuts go, Wayne Rooney’s was amongst the greatest and most memorable of all time. Ronaldo, Macheda, van Nistelrooy and Shay Brennan all received approving nods via our Twitter following last night, but surely none compare to Rooney’s? Shame then how the want-away striker could sour the occasion for a man who seems intent on sticking by him.

Today David Moyes takes centre stage as he marches his troops to South Wales for an early evening season opener against Swansea City, a fixture that looks and feels difficult for a number of reasons.

But what will be occupying Moyes’ thoughts throughout what promises to be a cracking spectacle? I can’t see how it can be anything other than Wayne Rooney.

The extent of the ‘injury’ is unknown but with only 4 days until United kick their Premier Leage campaign off at The Liberty Stadium its another piece of news David Moyes would prefer not to hear (ahem).
