United - Trading With The City!

United - Trading With The City!

It`s not something we do on a regular basis and when we do it tends to be City buying our cast-offs.

But the Sunday press are adamant that we could be trying to lure Stephen Ireland to Old Trafford.

Ireland, the player of the season at City the season before last, has fallen from grace and is considered surplus to requirements as City flex their financial muscle assembling a north-west version of Real Madrid and we all know what they won last year don`t we!

Ireland, still only twenty-three years of age, would probably jump at the chance to move but City, awash with money, would probably want to scam a few million of off us, the press are even suggesting as much as £12 million!

Could a deal happen, we certainly won`t dismiss the possibility!

Would you seriously want Steven Ireland in your squad after the season he's just had? He is a boyhood rag (seems to be quite common in Ireland) so would jump at the chance, and I'm sure we'd be happy to increase your debt a little bit more, but most reds I know think he's rubbish. Most of us blues do too, despite his one excellent season for us.

fcb, that one season in fairness really showed what his capable of and the type of player he could develop in to.

Indeed famous, he looked the real deal, and will probably go on to become a real star. Unfortunately, he bombed last season and it would appear that our manager no longer rates him. For that matter, neither do our fans. Would be sad to see him go, but his head is clearly not in the right place at the moment and a change would be best for all concerned. It would be rather unfortunate if he "did a Tevez", ie became hugely successful for our most detested rivals, but that's football.

Wasn't it Giggs in their youth academy before he decided it would be in his best interests to join us rather than them.

In 1996 United paid City £500k for Tony Coton but he never played first team game.
