Feathering the Nest

You just can`t keep a certain Jose Mourinho out of the news can you?

After receiving a five game ban for his antics after the Champions League semi-final first leg, against Barcelona, you`d have thought that Jose might want to retire from the public eye until the furor has died down.

But not Jose!

With Mourinho expected to be amongst the front-runners to replace Sir Alex Ferguson when the Scot finally calls it a day, the self proclaimed 'Special One` has spoke out about the rumoured chase for the Dutch midfielder, Wesley Sneijder.

Sneijder, who Jose managed whilst at Inter Milan, has been the subject of much transfer speculation and Jose has urged United to snap up the twenty-five year old talented midfielder.

Now, playing devils advocate, can we suggest that Jose would like United to make such a move because he envisages arriving at Old Trafford with his former charge already settled into life at Old Trafford?

Sneijder is easily the best CAM in modern football by a country mile. I would love to see him play for us and he too has stated he would love to play for ur however, I won't be holding my breath. Though circumstances at Inter have changed I reckon he's still too happy and cosy to want to leave and for the price he will demand (unless under 40 mil) I would rather us invest into 2 midfielders rather than one. If we were to get an AM, is it wrong for me to say I would prefer a much younger Douglas Costa? He already is showing great ability he will also provide stiff competition for other players who want to play an attacking mid role (Anderson & Cleverley) and finally he has amazing potential. With the left over money maybe we should look to invest into a DM but that might not be necessary.

FamousNo7 is right, as much as I would like us to get Sneijder, with Hargreaves basically going to the glue factory we need 2 midfielders an att mid urgently and a def midfielder, Douglas Costa has looked very good in Europe this season, Gotze being another possibility, the def mid is a much harder one to work out my only inclination would be Diarra from Madrid as much as I hate the midget he might just do the job. As for Jose if and when he becomes Utd manager then I will care what he says and thinks, for now he can ***** off.
