No Santa Cruz But Berbatov May Come

No Santa Cruz But Berbatov May Come

Paul Ince started his Blackburn job in bullish fashion: he told Sir Alex that Roque Santa Cruz is not for sale even though the gaffer never said he wanted to go for the Paraguayan.

'If he asks me about Roque then I'll tell him he's not having him,' said Ince who would be prepared to let Bentley go, though.

It might be a 'blow' for Fergie (as the tabloids described it) but rumours say that a move for Berbatov seems likely. Personally, I thought he would rather go to Spain or Italy, with Spurs reluctant sell to another English club.

Other vague rumours were about Lukas Podolski - would be strange to sign a fringe player from Bayern Munich - and sadly, there was no mention of Andriy Arshavin who could do very well for United I think.

Mikael Silvestre's move to Rome (or Bordeaux) is in jeopardy and it was even suggested that the player himself would prefer to stay. Stay, then, Mikael - unlike a lot of other United fans, I still think you're useful as a squad player.

Oh, and Wesley Sneijder won't come to United as part of the Ronaldo deal. No surprise there.

im not silvestre's biggest fan, but if we got rid of him we would be short of cover at left back, with o'shea the only capable to replace paddy evra.

I must say, I think Man U are the antichrist - but if the only way Huntelaar comes to the Prem is to play for you lot then I really hope you sign him. I'd love to watch him play week in and week out. Cheers.
