Given Wayne Rooney‘s recent pleas for Manchester United to fritter away millions in the name of ambition, the scope for the rumour-mongers of this world suddenly became vast, and it was only really going to be a matter of time before some of the biggest names in European football were mentioned in passing.

After various guff concerning usual suspects Gareth Bale, Franck Ribery and Wesley Sneijder did the rounds over the weekend, this morning comes the turn of Bayern Munich’s midfield hub Bastian Schweinsteiger to be linked with a big-money summer move to Old Trafford.

The big-money in question? 35 million of your English pounds to be precise, although quite where United are going to pull £35 million from is anyone’s guess – perhaps letting Anderson move t’other way might soften the blow a little?

    These newspapers can be a bit contradictory can’t they?

    One one page: “United are broke, the collapse of a giant”

    On the next: “United bid £50m for Ribery”


  2. who do we need now to fill the space in the midfield area,cos Carrick,Fletcher are not performing at all,and if we are realy looking forward to winning trophies we need to go to market come january to look for goood players that can fit in and complement the good players we have already.

    I think we need defenders as well,to help vidic at the back.

  3. Man U supporter says:

    I personally think John O’shea is the worst footballer on this planet. He is the first person that should leave Man U!

  4. please please says:

    please please please sell anderson and carrick they’re fucking terrible.

    Gareth Bale should be signed as Ryan Giggs’ successor, and Jordan Henderson should be signed as Paul Scholes’ successor, partly because these would not only be great signings but would keep to the home grown rule. Also Marc Albrighton would be a great signing, as well as promoting some of the players from the youth ranks.

    Agree with comment above about John O’Shea. Complete bumbling oaf.
