United Confirm New World Class Addition Is On It’s Way

By on July 27, 2011

Either Sir Alex Ferguson was purposely trying to dissuade Manchester United fans from getting their hopes up for a new signing, or David Gill doesn’t keep the United manager informed on transfer activity.

Just as United fans and pundits digested Ferguson’s comments that the club were not looking at any new signings because their main targets were unavailable, David Gill comes up with some comments to give revived hope of a new midfield addition.

“We are looking at one more player to bring in,”


said Gill, as millions of United fans’ ears listened with delight. Gill, the Chief Executive of the club, has always insisted that the manager has money to spend on players if he needs it, and it is this central midfield position now vacated by Paul Scholes that will require a substantial fee to fill.

Ferguson has expressed a specific interest in a few players in that position; namely, Arsenal’s Samir Nasri and Inter Milans Wesley Sneijder, with the latter being the favourite among fans. Nasri will cost in excess of £20 million this summer, or absolutely nothing next summer, providing he doesn’t sign a new contract with Arsenal, while Sneijder will be a £35 million purchase. It’s a big fee, but Ferguson admires the Dutchman hugely, and sees him as the natural replacement for Scholes. Gill continued:

“We’ve been looking at a particular position and two or three players in that position, but nothing’s imminent at the moment.

“The important point to understand, and Alex has made it clear, is that we need someone who’s going to improve the quality of the squad.

“We’ve got a great squad and to get into that squad you need to be a world-class player. There’s no point, if you can’t get the players you want, in buying someone for the sake of buying someone.

    You have kept us MAN UTD in the dark over this Snijder issue. If U are not having him in yr plan, pse sign Lassana Diarra. Outside his being an enforcer, he is an option for right back.
