Oh, it's January again and transfer rumours are in full flight. Fergie's insistence that he won't dip into the transfer market to sign additional defensive cover did not deter the papers from linking us with three centre-backs: Bolton's Gary Cahill, Juventus' Giorgio Chiellini and Palermo's Simon Kjaer.
Of these three, Gary Cahill is not the level we should be looking at, Chiellini's confidence has been badly dented by a few turbulent months this season when Juventus have been leaking goals while Simon Kjaer, though massively talented, expressed his intention to stay at Palermo at least until the summer.
But even if we won't sign defenders, we are certain, according to media sources, to add a little creativity in the form of Sofiane Feghouli, Grenoble's young playmaker, hailed as a new Zidane. According to his club, he's allowed his head to be turned by interest from Europe's big clubs and that's why he appeared only sporadically this season after two largely successful campaigns. He is a quick, skilled and creative player which we clearly need.
But don't worry, if we don't get him, we'll still have Karim Benzema! Oh yes, the French striker who was Fergie's number one target in the summer but United was priced out of a move by Real Madrid who landed the player. Now, according to several newspapers, they are ready to do a Liverpool and sell him on after only a half season as he's been disappointing so far, scoring five goals in fifteen games.
Will Madrid admit he's a flop and sell him? I don't know but do we want Real Madrid rejects? And do we want a player who seemingly can't cut it in the Spanish league where attackers generally have more space, time and opportunities than in England? I'm not sure. But some sources claim that he will have another few months to prove himself in Madrid as United decided to wait until the summer before launching an assault for him.
