Good prospect. I think it's ridiculous that we would give Carrick in exchange though. Carrick has more to offer at this particular stage in time. Rodwell will only offer us something good in about 2 years time. Rodwell has only just signed a contract extension too. One day maybe we will get him, don't think it will happen this season. I don't even know what his best position is. I've always thought that he was a bit of a defensive midfielder but he seems to get forward an awful lot.
The People talk about £ 20m bid. The Sun talk about £ 10M plus Carrick. Rodwell has signed a new contract with Everton 3 months ago. And made it clear that he was snubbing United to remain at Goodison Park. David Moyes has said that only sell him for £30M at least. The transfer window closes tomorrow. Do the Math.
I think right now as he's just signed a new contract he's worth a lot more than he will be in 2 years time though. He'll probably get more games at Everton too, I think he's made a very good decision by signing a new contract. Credit to the lad. Some kids see a big club and jump at it, Rodwell obviously just wants to play first team football at the moment.
He's a good player. He can play as defender as well. But he's much better playing in midfield. I see him more like a CM than a DM. DM. For this reason, I don't think he would be a Hargo's replacement. He's a good prospect. Overpriced, but good. A player to be watched and follow his development.
I think £15M won't be enough to take him away from Everton. Not long ago, he signed a new deal with Toffees. Rodwell is a player that I like, and it would be great to see him wearing United shirt. But for £15m, I think quite unlikely
Don't love the thought, especially at that price. And to me, Rodwell is still unproven. Sure, he looks a bit of promise, but he's young and his career could go either way. I'd rather see us pay up for a more "experienced" CM, especially someone with some creativity, attacking flair and vision.
Rodwell will be a huge player i'm sure, he has the potential! As Moyes himself has agreed, Rodwell is't ready to play so much first team football but Everton don't have much options either so they have to play him every game.
Rodwell does indeed look promising - and I'd welcome his signing - but not at the expense of losing Welbeck. Rodwell is twenty now which makes me question his development as he is in and out of the Everton side whether through form or injury. I'd expect more so far from a player some seem happy to bin off Carrick to recruit. The versatility aspect is understandably highlighted but how many games has he actually played at centre back at a decent level and is he really any better than Smalling and Evans? Personally I'm more excited about Seamus Coleman who looks a hell of a player.
