Rafael Van Der Vaart Drops Heavy Man Utd Hint

RAFAEL van der Vaart has dropped a blatant ‘rescue me from Real Madrid’s bench’ nudge-nudge-wink-wink to Manchester United.

Rafael van der Vaart’s WAG, Sylvie – easier on the eye than Rafael

With the signing of Mesut Ozil, it appears that VdV’s first-team chances at Real are slim to none. Hence the United hint:

“I could never play for another club in Spain and the truth is that if you are leaving Real Madrid, there is only one club you can join that is not a step down – and that’s Manchester United,” he is quoted as saying in the Express.

“They are a huge club and if the reported interest they have in me turns out to be true, then I would really have to sit down and listen.

“If Manchester United could offer me first-team football with the situation as it is at Madrid, it would be very hard to turn down. Alex Ferguson is a great coach and I would never think about joining a team where I didn’t believe I could win things, so all of a sudden that limits your choices.

“At Manchester United you know success is likely and that’s a big factor for me at this stage of my career.

“If [Real boss] Jose Mourinho makes it clear I won’t play much, I see my future in English football.”

Message received. But do United have the cash to fund a bid for VdV? We’ll see…

    Looks like a wishful thinking? I don’t think is gonna happen!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. max says:

    Neither do I, sadly. The horrible truth seems to be that Utd just don’t have the money to make the big signings of the past – but Fergie and Mourinho have a good relationship and if Madrid let VdV go for under 10million then you never know.

  3. Lloyd says:

    I think Utd would be better of trying to develop Anderson for that role rather than buying VdV

  4. Tatum says:

    I’d take VdV over Anderson any day of the week but I don’t believe the bullshit coming from Utd over transfers so I don’t think Fergie would splash out for a cup of tea let alone another player. Losing out on Ozil has made me bitter.
