Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 7:19 am

Angel-Di-MariaManchester United have agreed a £59.7m fee with Real Madrid for the transfer of Angel Di Maria, who could be officially unveiled as a United player on Tuesday morning, after being spotted arriving at Carrington last night.

The arrival of the Argentine winger, who was man of the match as his soon-to-be former side beat Atletico Madrid to clinch their 10th European Cup in May, represents a huge coup for United, who have lacked a world class winger since Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford for the Bernabeu.

United on the verge of another new signing

imageNews travels fast nowadays, as do images of players arriving at airports and hotels. Tonight it seems Angel Di Maria is in town to become the latest new signing unveiled by Manchester United.

At an estimated £65m, Di Maria’s signing takes United’s summer spending spree beyond an eye-watering £130m yet, unbelievably, they STILL have NOT strengthened the most notably weak areas of the first eleven.

Welbeck seeking move abroad?

Welbeck scores at The BernabeuWith the news that Danny Welbeck expects to be told he has no future at Old Trafford, what lies ahead for one of United’s most successful Academy graduates?

It’s being reported the club will not sanction a move to any of their perceived rivals (ie the top six) which may rule out the reported interest from Arsenal and Spurs who have both alledgedly made enquiries.

Would a move to another English club below that top six tier be the best move for the 23yr old Manchester born forward or could he clip his wings and move abroad to further his career both at club level and at International level?

“United could do a Liverpool”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 6:56 am

_76193279_022045696-1Paul Scholes has said he fears for Manchester United’s future, insisting that unless major signings are made, the club could follow the same path that took Liverpool into the wilderness in the 1990s.

After a summer that started promisingly with the arrivals of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera and the appointment of Louis Van Gaal, United have dragged their heels for the last two months while their direct rivals have strengthened and Saturday’s defeat against Swansea was a timely reminder that the gap between United and the elite of English football is widening.

Hit the Glazers where it hurts

protestsThe transfer window closes in two weeks and we are yet to see last year’s problems on the pitch addressed. That is down to either two things; we are not trying, or we are trying and failing. On Saturday, we should have had a team out that could have won the game and that could have won the league but we don’t do that anymore. We lack ambition in the transfer window. I believe it is the former.

Ed Woodward had yet another busy summer this year, he left the tour early again. Last year the reasons were “Urgent transfer business”. I won’t dwell too much on last summer’s debacle as that was his first year in the job and I will give him the benefit of the doubt but now that he’s fully settled in I want to talk about this summer.
