i Hope it is, but i think ur right, very unlikely that Inter will sell, Unless Rafa has someone else i mind!
Seems Morratti has told Rafa that he'll only buy Mascherano for him, for more transfers he'll have to sell first!
I love Wesley. I reckon he's a cracking player, out of the 4 dutch players who went to Real Madrid a few years back... Sneijder, Van der Vaart, Robben, Huntelaar. I rate Sneijder the highest. Been wanting him to join us since he was at Ajax. He's capable of that magic that our midfield is lacking in, in my opinion.
I would honestly give up my (future) firstborn to see Wesley Sneijder play for Manchester United. It's nice to be linked with all this young potential like Sotiris Ninis and Alexis Sanchez, but Sneijder is a proven world-class attacking midfielder. If he played behind Rooney it would be magical. Exactly the player we need, full of creativity and flair, good passing, can take free kicks, and can score. Sadly I don't think it's true. Even if Gill has been telling the truth and we have the money available, I can't imagine Inter wanting to give up a key member of the treble-winning squad, and I doubt Rafa wants to do us any favors by selling him to us. Oh well, I'll remain hopeful, but I won't believe it until I see him holding a United jersey at Old Trafford.
yeah, i guess thats me.
Berbs gives himself too much responsibilty to create, and then when he's given a hard time for not scoring he tries to do too much and it falls apart, he is a quality player, and he just needs something a little more creative behind him, seems to be that fergie has been playing a more "robust" midfield the last couple of years, we could do with a bit more guile.
would be a fantastic Signing, but if the news are true, Ferguson is being very optimistic if he thinks that he can take Sneijder by £25-30M. Last year he's valuated by only £ 10m. He was sold to Inter by £13M. SAF should have made an offer for him. If the Netherlands win the WC, Sneijder certainly will be a strong(And favourite) contender to FIFA's Player of the Year Award. In this case, it seems obvious that Inter will ask a value out of our reality to sell him.
Another problem may be the wages. I don't know how much Sneijder earns, but he should be one of the Inter's best paid players.. If United didn't want to pay 200k p/w to Benzema and 160k p/w to David Silva, i'm not sure they will afford Sneijder's demands. The club's wages structure would breakdown.
As soon as he talks to Rafa, he'll want to leave. haha. We'll have to wait and see on this.
I like Balotelli and I think Fergie could cool him down and turn him into one of the greatest. "United is one of the most interesting projects in the world" is that a reason to be cheerful? Does that mean while the Glazers have a huge amount of debt there is a plan?
Can anyone comment on the credibility of Freddie Boswell on Twitter? I've started following him recently have hearing that he was a fairly reliable source. I have a friend from Greece who can't stop raving about Sotiris Ninis, so I'm actually really excited at the prospect of signing him. This Freddie Boswell seems to think it's a done deal, I really hope this is a credible report.
As for Sneijder, I'm thrilled to see we made a bid. Perfect player to play in the midfield behind Rooney. I think it's a really good sign that there are funds available and that we are capable of going after the players we need. I doubt £29m is gonna cut it though. I expect the club will need to go back with an improved offer. Also find it interesting that we've inquired about Balotelli. All in all, things have taken a very positive turn today. Even if we don't sign Sneijder (I have my doubts about Inter letting him leave), it shows that the club is taking steps to improve for next season.
Balotelli is a risky signing. He's a good player, skilful, have a great potential, but he's brainless. I won't be surprised if I saw him playing at United and walking around the streets wearing a Liverpool shirt. He's a very problematic player.
But if you think, Cantona was problematic as well, and SAF fixed him as far as possible. Rooney also had a certain Bad boy reputation and Ferguson "took care" of him. Maybe Ferguson can do the same with Balotelli.
Macheda has not yet become the player I expected, but I still think he has a future at the club. I expect him to stay.
