Will young Saint become a Devil?

Luke-Shaw-423542After months spent following the same targets with very little success, Manchester United have today been linked with a surprise move for Southampton’s Luke Shaw, as David Moyes appears to be increasingly willing to explore other avenues after facing the prospect of missing out on Leighton Baines.

United’s £28m joint bid for Marouane Fellaini and Baines was described as “derisory and insulting” by Everton, and the United manager has now set his sights on the 18-year-old Southampton left-back, according to today’s newspapers.

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailManchester United have enjoyed a rather unimpressive summer, with their failure to land a major signings coupled with Wayne Rooney’s malaise making it a very difficult couple of months for new manager David Moyes.

However, on the pitch, the United manager got his career off to a positive start, lifting the Community Shield and winning his opening Premier League fixture in style, as the Reds thumped Swansea 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium on the weekend.

United make fresh bid

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailIf Manchester United were a teenager approaching a girl, it’s fair to say they wouldn’t have stand a chance. In fact, by now, they would probably be thinking that they’re destined to remain single for the rest of their life, such is the ineptitude and awkwardness they have displayed in the last couple of months.

To extend the metaphor even further, United yesterday received a literal slap in the face, after the equivalent of asking a girl out to, well, a fast-food restaurant, as the club offered £28m for both, Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.

United and Moyes suffer yet another transfer market setback

Fellaini with MoyesDavid Moyes’ era at United kicked off in fashion on the pitch, but the United manager continues to have no luck in the transfer window as United suffered another setback in their bid to strengthen the squad before September 2.

The latest reports suggest that Everton have turned down a £28 million offer from the Premier League champions for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini as David Moyes knocked on his former club’s door in an effort to secure his first two signings as Manchester United manager, since signing Uruguayan youngster Guillermo Varela.

Chelsea not going away despite United warning

wayne rooneyUnited might have started the David Moyes era triumphantly by thumping Swansea 4-1 on Saturday, but the first three points under the new manager are a distant memory on today’s backpages, which focus, yet again, on transfer speculations as the transfer window enters its final two weeks.

The man at the centre of attention is, rather obviously, Wayne Rooney. The saga surrounding the England striker’s future has been arguably the story of the summer, second only to the Luis Suarez’s shamble down the East Lancs Road and the doubts surrounding the future of the man who trademarked a goal celebration.

Moyes turns to Real Madrid star

Mesut+Ozil+Real+Madrid+CF+v+Athletic+Club+gUbt5U87e1alWhen the Premier League season finally kicks off tomorrow, whichever United XI will take the pitch against Swansea will have a very familiar look to the one that secured a record 20th league title last season.

United’s inactivity in the transfer window throughout the summer has been well documented as has the appalling lack of strategy the club seems to have employed since Ed Woodward replaced David Gill, with United missing out on Thiago Alcantara, before having various bids for Cesc Fabregas turned down.

United manager sends positive signal

David MoyesDavid Moyes has reiterated that Wayne Rooney won’t leave Manchester United and has also hinted that United are in discussion with “several players” as the Scotsman seeks to bolster the squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

United’s strategy this summer has been nothing short of shambolic, with Moyes missing out on the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas, while Everton remain adamant that Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines won’t leave the club, but the United manager remains confident of landing his targets before the transfer window shuts on September 2.
