Reports suggest that United are lining up Thierry Henry as the alternative in the case we fail to get Dimitar Berbatov. I have to say this is one of the most breathtaking rumours of the summer.
I mean, if it were true I would have to say that Fergie is losing his marbles. However, I must instead declare that the world has entirely lost its marbles: they can't expect Fergie to go after an overrated, injury-prone 31-year old who is highly unpopular at Old Trafford?
Now, one's wondering if those who print such nonsense have any specific aim with it? They can't be serious, can they? They can't believe that Manchester United are going to sign Thierry Henry who now can't cope with the slower, calmer tempo of the Primera Liga, let alone the fast and furious Premier League - and who was totally, utterly anonymous against United in the semi-final of the Champions League?
OK, I know what you say. Fergie tried to sign Vieira. But at that time it was not obvious that Vieira was totally past it - as a holding midfielder he loses less with ageing than a striker. And the other thing is simply that he's a holding midfielder - and Fergie was desperate to land one at that time, and one he always had respect for.
I'm happy we did not get him as it allowed Carrick to prove the doubters wrong and I'm sure no United fan in their right mind regret that Vieira did not join us. And not one of them are keen to see Henry in the red shirt of United, that's equally certain. I hope.
