United Target European Duo!

United Target European Duo!

I just love Sundays!

Is there another day where there is so many rumours in the tabloids?

According to the Sunday Mirror Sir Alex is preparing to swoop for two respected names from the continent.

The first is a big target man, a striker that would provide the perfect partner for Wayne Rooney, his name - Marco Borriello.

Borriello is currently at AC Milan and it`s believed that a bid of £16 million would be required to bring him to Old Trafford.

The second is a midfielder who has already enjoyed time in the Premier League with Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth - Lassana Diarra.

Diarra, currently at Real Madrid, is expected to be more costly, circa £20 million.

Good buys, bad buys, a preference for one or the other, or should we sign both?

Your thoughts please!

I think United need two midfielders this summer. A creative, attacking midfielder and a box-to-box midfielder with some ability on the ball. If Hargreaves doesnt play for us again then we'd need another defensive midfielder - which is where Diarra would come in.

I just can't imagine we'd want to pay £16m for Boriello. £10m or less and I might believe it, but I'd be extremely disappointed if we did. I'd rather keep Berba and not buy anyone else than spend £16m on Boriello.

I agree with Tuscan on the Boriello signing,really I too would prefer keeping Berba than signing Boriello but in Fletcher I do feel we have a box-to-box midfielder.He has developed his game tremendously.

Diarra seems destined to spend his life drifting from club to club, shame I lkiked him at Stamford Bridge!

Im a fletcher fan, I just think if we had an extra box-to-box player who had a bit more quality on the ball we'd be better off when trying to play a 433 - especially if players are injured. At the moment, if Hargo is injured and fletcher cant play for whatever reason our midfield is non-existent defensively. In fact, its pretty close to non-existent on the attack as well. Someone like Rodwell, wouldnt take Fletchers place in the first team, but will definitely be a better all round player than him in the future.

Borriello? steer well clear of him,big as berba & just as lazy.He gets away with it cos serie A is slow paced.What do you think huntelaar's price is now?
