Leave a tender moment alone
Manchester United are reportedly preparing a huge summer double bid for two of Everton’s highly-rated young stars in Jack Rodwell and Dan Gosling.
Rodwell is said to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s priority signing and although his Everton counterpart David Moyes is reluctant to lose the midfielder, Ferguson is hoping an £8 million-up-front bid (plus hefty additional payments relating to appearances/England caps) may be enough to tempt The Toffee’s into cashing in.
Meanwhile, £4.5 million-rated Gosling is said to have impressed Fergie with his versatility and adaptability this season and, with the new ‘homegrown’ regulations set to be implemented soon, the United manager is understandably keen to add some young English talent to his ranks.
