That Sanchez Link

Our name keeps appearing in the race to sign the Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez.

Along with our noisy-neighbours and the Catalan giants of Barcelona, some serious money is being spoken about when it comes to procuring the signature of the Chilean winger.

Having Ashley Young joining us and with Valencia and Nani already on the books it`s hard to see any validity in the rumours.

Even more so when you read that our Champions League Final conquerors are the favourites to land the player having already offered a cool 23 million up front with another 5 million forthcoming, for his signature.

The fact that it is being suggested that Sanchez would prefer a move to Old Trafford doesn`t carry that much influence in this mega-deal methinks.

Think we might be interested, just to stop him joing our rivals. Park is apparently gonna be off, if you believe what you read anyway.

Thank goodness Barca are getting him. In the same way i'm glad Chelsea are in poll position to get Modric. They're good no doubt, but the fee's being thrown around are ridiculous and there are much better options available. I don't think either provide the midfield with what it really needs. Seeing as we're building for the future Sneijder seems less and less likely everyday (don't think there was much of a chance in the first place). Hamsik or Costa would make me happy.

i find it very ridiculous for u to think hamsik is gonna fit into united i hv watched him a couple of time n i dnt think he can deliver waht we need no doubt his a good player but not a big player.....we need a player who can dictate d play in midfield n modric or sneijder fit that bill n i dnt care what inter milan r saying when d time is right we gonna get sneijder cause i dnt think spurs r willing to let modric go.......

The lad knows where the goal is something our midfield has sorely missed and something we "need". He's physical presence and the attacking positions he gets himself in to alone will open up space for playmakers (Rooney), wingers (Valencia/Nani/Young) and strikers (Hernandez/Berby/Welbeck) to work in. Dictating midfielders are hard to find and often cost a bomb. Sneijder is cosy at Inter and Inter are under no obligation to sell, they can provide him with everything he wants. Tottenham may be obliged to sell but even still you will be looking at 30-35 mil for a player who boasts very few assists and goals and has his eyes set on Chelsea (idiot... :P). Rooney can very easily dictate a game so for me it's not something we're desperate need of, we proved we can cope without last season when Scholes wasn't playing and Rooney was off-form. We need someone who can create space and pick out a good throughball and who knows where the net is who won't cost over 20-25 mil. FFP implications come into action next season so there's no point buying a 25-26 year old who will be declining in 5/6 years where we're then back to square 1. Costa is my personal preference.

Also forgot Taarabt. Could be similar to Nasri if he makes it in the Premier League but much cheaper.

henry, fair point about Cleverley and I would love to see him play more but still there's an issue with a lack of competition in that position. You're right we're not Arsenal but I wouldn't mind their midfield which have all stemmed from a young set-up of unproven players similar to Barca's. The concerns about money come from the fact that we are still in debt, we're slowly climbing out but it's pointless destroying all our progress in a single short-term signing who might not even work out. I'd sooner us sign a youngster with massive potential on the cheap and have the years of service and resale value as in an insurance than the possibility of another Veron. To me, Costa ticks all the boxes.

Gremio demanded 20 mil from us for Costa but we refused to pay that amount for a player who was predominately all potential with no experience in other leagues or serious competition to showcase his actual talent against. Costa was upset at Gremio and wanted to leave and forced through a 6 million (!) transfer to Shakhtar where he signed a 5 year contract (doh!). He's still a bit inconsistent but can really turn a game around on his day. He's fast, an amazing set-piece taker and has a decent shot on him, he can spot and play a pass, open up defenses and has a decent cross also. He can also be utilized on either wing as well as through the middle and is a team player as well as possessing a decent work ethic. He was spotted at Old Trafford when we played Bolton after rumours of our renewed interest. Many clubs are rumoured to be interested in him including ourselves, Liverpool, City and Arsenal. With Arsenal being involved bells must be ringing, every player we've snatched from Arsenal's grasp so far have been brilliant, Ronaldo, Da Silva twins and Smalling to name a few. Arsenal lodged a cash + Denilson offer for him which was rejected with Cesar Bottega (Douglas Costa's agent) saying: "Shakhtar said no. They are not interested in Denilson and would want only money." Shakhtar are clearly willing to let him go but only at the right price, a price we should definately meet. He's also only 20 years old!! 15-20, 25 at most, million could be considered good business when you take into consideration his current ability, his potential, his resale value if he fulfills his potential, his resale value if he doesn't fulfill his potential, the possible years of service, the goals and assists he provides over that period, the money gained from marketing, etc, etc. Douglas Costa wants to play for Man U, he displayed that when he left Gremio and was spotted at Old Trafford and I'd much sooner have a player who wants to play for the club now than a player who wouldn't mind playing for us but isn't entirely fussed either way and who would cost a bomb and there's far less security.
