Aguero To United? Good Idea

According to goal.com, one of the least credible sources of the planet, United are ready to enter talks to sign Atletico Madrid's Argentine striker Sergio Aguero. Apparently, he would cost about Ł50million and the site reckons Aguero himself wouldn't be against a move to the Champions.

Now, I think it is a great idea: he's a quick, tricky, skilled player who would be an excellent addition to our front line. However, he allegedly prefers Serie A to the Premier League though so far only his father-in-law, Diego Maradona's advice hinted towards such a preferance: Maradona told Aguero he should go to Inter Milan.

Well, I'm not holding my breath: Atletico do not want to sell and despite goal.com's information I think it's highly unlikely that United would pay the quoted price even if the Spanish club could be talked into an agreement.

Didn't Sir Alex say that he will not be buying new players? :)

I highle rate Aguero, I like him more than his compatriot - Messi. He tracks back, his workrate is amazing.. But do we need the same sort of striker as Tevez? He is very overrated(60 mln), his wage demands are astonishing. Also he is very lightweight and didn't prove himself in Premiership(unlike Tevez). Don't think it's a good idea. Benzema is more realistic option..

Seems a good player, but I'd have serious concerns about the size of our team if we did buy him. Apart from Vidic and Rio we'd have no real height in the team making us vulnerable at defensive set pieces and weak on attacking ones. Also its a lot of money for some one with not PL experience. Also with Veron, Heinze and now Tevez leaving us - I'm not sure we'd get glowing references!

Aguero will go where the future is right for him. He'll see that Manyoo have lost Ronaldo and Tevez and he'll go somewhere else, if he has any sense.

I thought you fellows did not overpay for players? And plus, he's demanding 120k a week, AFTER taxes. So that works out about 240k a week for the club. That strips what Ronnie (Was) and Ferdinand are earning by a mile. Dont think this will happen. And Hey, it's Goal.com! Did'nt they declare a few days back that you fellows were after Iker Casillas? Hahaha.. Zae, I dont think articles from that much are worth publishing!

Now now, Goal.com is a fantastic comedy site whose opinions generate great light hearted debate. Im waiting for them to report that Ronaldo is already unsettled at Real and is looking for a big money swap back to United!

Even if this rumour is true and we match his buy out clause,his wage demand is something out of this planet.

Precisely, he would'nt want to come to England, anyway because of the tax laws.

The tax laws are starting to turn the tables back in favour of the bigger spanish clubs, being a professional footballer is a short although highly rewarding career and unless you get the chance to sign for the club of your dreams players will follow the money lets be honest we'd all love to play for Man U but if we were footballers and had to choose between 2 clubs of equal stature, Inter or AC Milan, for example we'd go with the biggest wage. I would love to see him in a Utd shirt but the tax laws would scupper any deal.
