Manchester United’s Transfer Shortlist
By Ryan Kane.
As June comes to a close the transfer market heats up. Club’s battle it out for the signatures of big name players around the world. As always Manchester United appear to be in the thick of it all. Here is (an obviously incomplete) list of players that have been linked to Old Trafford in recent weeks. The list has been comprised through research of recent press reports, both national and international.
Ganso – Santos
Hailed as “The new Kaka”, the Santos wonder kid is reportedly being tracked by Manchester United, Manchester City and French champions Lyon.
Luis Fabiano – Sevilla
The Brazilian striker has been heavily linked to United and AC Milan after enjoying an impressive World Cup campaign thus far.
Klass Jan Huntelaar – AC Milan
Often linked with United in the past, the Dutch striker is believed to be on his way out of the San Siro this summer. Huntelaar scored in Holland’s recent win over Cameroon in the World Cup.
Sotiris Ninis – Panathinaikos
The 20 year old attacking midfielder has made six appearances for the Greek national side and is reportedly being linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.
Jefferson Montero – Villarreal
The 23 year old is being linked with a move to United after he announced that he wanted to join fellow Ecuadorian Antonio Valencia at Old Trafford. The Villarreal midfielder is highly rated in Spain.
Giorgio Chiellini – Juventus
Chiellini is believed to be a possible replacement for Nemanja Vidic at United, should the Serbian leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid. The 25-year old Italian has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich. The centre-back was an instrumental part of the Italian World Cup campaign…well what there was of it.
