Man Utd Transfer News: Fergie To Renew Interest In £12m Midfielder
Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Manchester United are linked with Adel Taarabt.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to renew his interest in Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt and is lining up a shock £12m January bid, the Telegraph are reporting today.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been a long-term admirer of the Moroccan’s and may try and tempt QPR to cash in when the window re-opens to provide new boss Harry Redknapp with much-needed funds to re-build his squad.
Redknapp has been warned he will have limited funds to work with in January as he targets a striker and a central defender and he may have to rely on the loan market if he can’t generate his own kitty through sales.
The former Tottenham boss indicated on Monday that he wanted to hang on to Taarabt but warned the midfielder he would have to work harder to keep his place in the side. Redknapp has had a frosty relationship with the 23-year-old in the past, calling him a “fruitcake” before selling him to QPR when the pair were at Tottenham.
So he may be tempted to sell if the right offer comes in order to raise funds for his own transfer dealings, with QPR valuing the player at around £15m.
