The English giants are ready for a summer of spending at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Fergusen, the manager is set on rebuilding the team as their most celebrated veterans , Edwin Van Der Sar , and Paul Scholes have retired this summer. In addition Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand also need suitable replacement and their age seems to be catching up with them slowly. The most expected transfer targets are:
1. Luka Modric (Tottenham Horspur) : Following the massacre of the midfield at the hands of the Catalans in the Champions league final at Wembley Stadium, Sir Alex is keen on adding more creativity to the midfield. Luka Modric seems to be the best option as the spurs midfielder is in excellent form and is already familiar with the English style of game. The croation midfielder is also interested in a possible transfer as he recently said “When you experience playing in the Champions League, you want to keep playing in this tournament”. The transfer is supposed to be around 30m or more as Spurs are reluctant to sell their top star playmaker.
2. Ashley Young (Aston Villa) : The young englishman recently made mockery of Capello’s decision to not include him in the starting 11 by scoring in the few minutes that he was substituted into the game, and was in excellent form throughout. He has had a spectacular season at Villa Park and his team seems resigned to the fact that they cannot keep him for another season. The Red devils’ manager has set sights on the young flyer and is keen to add him to the squad and to add a little bit more speed to the aging midfield. Transfer amount is expected to be around 15m. Manchester united are ready to fight off Liverpool who also seems to be interested in Young.
3. David De Gea (Atletico Madrid) : The Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has long been linked with a transfer to Old Trafford since January. Seeing that the Dutch Goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar is out of the game having retired this summer, the Scot is out shopping for a Goalkeeper too. De Gea is topping his list as the young goalkeeper is an excellent talent to have. He will suit perfectly Sir Alex’s plans as the youngster is just 20 year old and already of top drawer. He sure seems interested as he said a move to Old Trafford would be too seducing to refuse.
4. Wesley Sneijder (Inter Milan) : Even though he signed a new deal with Inter Milan recently, the Dutch playmaker would be unable to refuse a move to Old Trafford if an offer was made. The Scot has long had his sights on Sneijder as he led Inter Milan to a treble the season before last. He has had a bad season with Inter Milan as they lost their Serie A title as well as the Champions league title to FC Barcelona as well. The hefty asking price for the midfielder will be the only put off factor for Sir Alex as he looks to add this brilliant and creative playmaker in the Red Devil squad.
