Switching Keeper Targets

Reports in the tabloids this Easter Weekend infer that Sir Alex Ferguson has switched targets when it comes to signing a replacement for Edwin van der Sar.

Previously, United had been rumoured to be targeting David de Gea but it`s now understood that the young Spaniard is, currently, reluctant to leave Spain.

Therefore it appears, according to the media, that United are now casting a watchful eye towards the young Portuguese keeper, Rui Patricio.

Patricio, currently playing for Sporting Lisbon, is rated at 10.5 million but the paper reports that United have made an initial bid somewhere in the region of 7 million.

This could be a rumour to pay close attention to!

Fergie will you just sign a new keeper to shut these papers up please! Which keeper haven't we been linked to?

De Gea reluctant to leave Spain? Or Athletico reluctant to sell to manure now that they've signed a collaboration agreement giving us first refusal on their players? Mwahahahahaha! http://www.click-manchester.com/sport/manchester-united/1211915-manchester-city-land-lucrative-atletico-madrid-deal.html

That wouldn't prevent us outright from getting De Gea fcb... You'll have first option but the player would still get the choice of what club they want to join. All just a ploy to get first dibs on Aguero, you wouldn't stand a chance against the lure of Real or Barca so you desperately attempt to ensure you can turn his head your way first.
