According to media reports. Thoughts?
So far so normal, but as his reputation grew Douglas began to be linked with Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona. "I know definitely that Manchester United sent a fax to my club, Gremio, asking them to release me to their training ground so they could see my skills," he said. "But the bosses of Gremio refused, saying that I already had the ability to play at the top level. They told Manchester United they could sign me without any trials. I like the style of Manchester United and if I could have chosen I would have preferred to go there, but they weren't ready, and Shakhtar Donetsk offered what Gremio wanted."
Yeah that's true ! I'd say a winger will be signed in the summer because a lot have been linked, not sure who though !i think once a winger comes to United he plays down both wings! lol, Valencia is the only exception, everyone else has been trained to play down both wings, even Giggsy!
