Man Utd Transfer News: Fergie To Renew Interest In £12m Midfielder

By on November 27, 2012

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.

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.

Fergie has shown interest in Taarabt in the past and was close to making a move when QPR were promoted from the Championship in 2010. He has continued to monitor his progress in the Premier League and the Telegraph claim United are now readying a £12m move when the transfer window re-opens in January.

    Ferguson will be crazy to sign that guy. Dat is how he bought ashley young and now young is a total flop. Ferguson shuld better go for fellaini, strootman, or wanyama, Period. Can’t him Oscar at Chelsea? Spend £25m on a proven midfielder once and for all, than going for all this £12m – £16m midfielder. I beg Ferguson, please.

    Fergie should help himself by solving his defence and midfield problems.
