David Villa, David Silva and Manuel Neuer… All these names may not join Manchester United on January or even next summer as the club is in £700m debt due to the Glazer family takeover years ago.
Manchester United have just dropped their pursuit of Partizan Belgrade‘s teenage midfielder Adem Ljajic. United couldn’t bring the highly rated youngster last season because of his age, this led the Serbs to say that United withdraw their interests due to their financial crisis:
Partizan president Dragan Djuric said: “Maybe the real problem is that they are in financial crisis.”
Manchester United have dismiss those suggestions and stated the decision has been made only after investigating the player progress and how good he can be for United.
As United fans, we hope this story won’t affect the club activity during the coming transfer window. The squad is really in need for strength in some area as I said before. A striker who can score in every game would be a great addition to the squad as Michael Owen is not the man we knew 8 years ago.
Last game against Tottenham in the Carling Cup proved that there is no place anymore for Nani , who came in 2007 for £17m, after his blast at Sir Alex Ferguson over his suspected poor man-management last month. United are willing to sell the Portuguese for £10m. Both AC Milan and Juventus are interested.
If Nani leave the club, we will need a replacement for him…Or you can say for Cristiano Ronaldo… Nani couldn’t prove that he is an ideal replacement for Ronaldo and with him leaving, an extra winger will be good for the team to increase competition for places. Giggs is 36 years old and Park Ji Sung has just returned from injury. I would like to see David Silva or even an Englishman like Aston Villa Ashley Young.
Reports also suggest we are going to bring Manuel Neuer as a replacement for Van der Sar. But SAF said he has fait on Ben Foster and Tomasz Kuszczak.
In less than a month we will be able to know the truth about the club massive debt. Will the Glazer fund Sir Alex Ferguson January signings? The answer may be yes or no! However, it depends to Sir Alex Ferguson who said weeks ago that he doesn’t need new players to his squad…and this is the scenario am afraid from!
Will United splash cash on January?
