Couldn't understand it if we signed him. Unlike 1999 we don't play with 2 orthodox strikers very often so it'll be very hard to give 4 strikers enough games. I can't see it happening without us moving another striker on.
Honestly feel that Welbeck given time will be just as good if not better than Lewandowski. Wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if this is just his agent drumming up interest, remember that this time last year we had signed Nicolas Gaitan..
I'll still be surprised if this happened. If it did I can't help but feel it will be down to him being good value for money because I still can't see a need for him. People have touted that he can play wide but I can't see it, certainly not in a 4-4-2.
This whole story stinks of an agent using Utd to get his client a new contract.
United have 4 international strikers why would we buy another one?
He's a good player but nothing about this deal makes any sense to me so I think it's an agent trying to get him the best possible contract he can at Dortmund and leaking stories to the press to push up the wages.
It's possible although personally I think there must be something behind it. We've were interested in him for most of last season and signing van Persie doesn't seem to have changed that. If it turns out to be true then it'll be a good signing but we'll still need to sign a midfielder, and possibly a winger and centre half depending on who stays and goes so I can't help but feel it would be an unnecessary investment in an area we're already incredibly strong.
I have felt for some time there are some issues between fergie and rooney. I would be not at all surprised if we sold rooney to finance a midfield player.Speedy is right though, there are other positions we need to strengthen.
That move would make more sense, probably the only thing Juve are missing is a regular goalscorer upfront. I doubt Lewandowski will go anywhere until the summer because he can't play in the CL for another club.
