    if tevez, goes Rossi would be ideal as he knows united and has experinece of english, international and champions league football. I know everyone will be hyping him up because he scored 2 goals against the mighty USA! USA! USA! but i think that he would suit united very very well.
    if tevez goes united will buy Valencia, Rossi and Benzema cos they are all young (and maybe that brazilian kid Douglas Costa!)
