Career still in doubt as Hargreaves makes the cut

The much vaunted, new 25 player squad rule which came into being at 5pm on Tuesday has been little more than a fizzer as far as Manchester United were concerned. As the club reported on its official website “All of United’s players, barring those currently out on loan, are eligible to play for the Reds in the Premier League this season. United’s Champions League squad has also been submitted to UEFA, European football’s governing body and now has to be verified before being confirmed.”

Never mind who’s coming, who’s leaving United?

Just like most kite flying rumours of players coming into Old Trafford can be safely ignored, gossip about who Sir Alex Ferguson is about to sell should also be dismissed at least until an official statement is issued by the club. It does not mean that rumours cannot be noted however because where there’s smoke there can sometimes be a fire. Stories published over the weekend suggest that two key defenders and a promising young striker could find themselves wearing new colours by the time the new season kicks off.
