web-fabgregas-gettyCesc Fabregas yesterday distanced himself from a move to Manchester United, insisting he wants to prove himself at Barcelona and that he’s not considering a return to Premier League.

The former Arsenal captain had been linked with a £25m move to Old Trafford but, in an interview with Spanish radio Onda Cera, he categorically dismissed the rumours surrounding his future.

For the second time in the space of three years, Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney has made the headlines with news reports indicating the 27 year old favours a move away from Old Trafford. New manager David Moyes is expected to hold talks with the England striker to convince him to commit his future to the red devils. Many United faithful, both players and fans alike, are pushing for a Rooney stay, but a few think otherwise. The question remains as to whether or not United should cash in on their prized asset.

United look to Barca stars

Tag: Transfer Stories @ 9:24 am

1357859002326Over the last couple of seasons, Sir Alex Ferguson’s well documented reluctance to recruit a midfielder became a cause of frustration for many Reds, with United’s engine room often falling short in big games due to a lack of physicality and technique. Things, however, could soon change.

The Mirror today reports that David Moyes has made Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara one of his priorities, after sending scout Jim Lawlor to Israel to monitor the progress of Spain U21’s captain at the European Championships and, at least according to the tabloid, United have already begun talks with Alcantara’s dad.

Out of Contract Midfielder tempts United

Nampalys Mendy - MonacoSome reports are linking United with a move for rebellious Monaco midfielder, Nampalys Mendy.

Mendy has informed his club of his decision to leave on a free transfer this summer and United are apparently on ‘high alert’.

A product of Monaco’s youth system, Mendy, compared by educated onlookers with France’s most infamous defensive midfielder, Claude Makalele, was integral to Monaco’s Ligue 1 success last season and United appear tempted to put their faith in youth once more with the 20 year-old French youth International.

In an interview with the Mirror, the Dutchman expressed his confidence ahead of next season – both in terms of personal form and club’s success.

“I have a feeling we can do much more and that we can win many more trophies,” said van Persie.

Ronaldo’s going nowhere but are United back in for Lew?

167812885-1866888Mondays are traditionally coated in melancholy and today’s newspapers do very little to ease the blues on those of us who expected to begin the week by reading about David Moyes’ first big signing.

Let’s start with quash some expectations, as the Sun has finally pulled the plug on their farcical attempt at convincing everybody that Cristiano Ronaldo would return to Old Trafford this summer. After weeks of “exclusives” and “inside scoops”, the tabloid has given in, as has the Mail.

Fletcher & Varela in, Rooney out?

Tag: Transfer Stories @ 10:45 am

133941275-1329510While Manchester City have been busy trying to atone for last season’s mistakes by securing the signing of Jesus Navas and Fernandinho – they might even appoint a new manager by February – United’s approach to this summer’s transfer window has been rather circumspect so far.

In fact, if the papers are to be believed, Arsenal could soon sanction a move for Wayne Rooney. In truth, the Mirror‘s article stinks of sensationalism, particularly as Arsenal chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, simply replied to a question, rather than formulate on a possible transfer.
