United - Welbeck and cash for Rodwell?

Man United are known to be long-term admirers of Everton's Jack Rodwell so news of a move for him in the summer is hardly surprising. What would be surprising though would be if Danny Welbeck was allowed to leave Old Trafford to bring Rodwell in?

'Rumours' in The Daily Mail are saying that Everton would only consider letting the England U21 international leave if Welbeck was included in a player-plus-cash deal.

With Sir Alex Ferguson stating that Welbeck, and the other youngsters currently away from Old Trafford on loan, will all return to play a major part next season its unlikely that he would agree to this deal.

An alternative midfield target, also according to The Mail, is Charlie Adam.

Man United were 'linked' with a transfer deadline day move for the Blackpool midfielder although this never happened and he stayed with Blackpool anyway. It is now being suggested that Man United are the favourites to land the Scotland international for 8m in the summer.

If United offer something like 20mil + Welbeck, I would definetly sell, Rodwell is a good player, but is heavily overrated, persistent ankle injuries and pretty average performances, if we can get that type of deal then Moyes will take it for sure, we need strikers and we need money

No way. I can see Fergie perhaps offering Macheda or Diouf and even then I can imagine them only going on loan. Money or nothing for Everton. Also, I reckon we would be better off waiting, he's a tremendous talent an all but, like Rob said, his injuries seem to be recurring and hindering his development. Don't want another Hargreaves case on our hands.

As for Adam, I reckon Fergie has got a genuine interest in him. I remember him saying his crosses were worth 10 mil alone and he does love his 'value for money' philosophy and by this I reckon Adam in a United kit is definately on the cards. Not the marquee signing many would expect but he's definately a dark horse, his passing is amazing both long and short, his freekicks are also very good as are his corners. His defensive game, if he joins, will only improve as well as other areas of his game.

As an Everton fan I'm not sure he would improve united's squad. A lot of comparison with Rio but hes never started at centre half for us and lacks incision to his passing to be effective in midfield. I did a blog post on his stats this week incl tackling, passing, chance creation figures if you want to have a look? you can view on the below link http://theexecutionersbong.wordpress.com/2011/03/23/transfer-crossroads-loom-for-midfield-stars/
