Could Sir Alex Ferguson be about to spring a major surprise in the transfer market?
The reason we ask is that newspaper speculation ha slinked united with a move for the Queens Park Rangers player Adel Taarabt.
The red-tops are reporting that Sir Alex was impressed by the performance the 23 year-old gave during his sides 3-1 defeat, at Old Trafford, on Saturday.
The speculation is boosted by making reference to the fact that the new Queens Park Rangers manager, Harry Redknapp, didn`t really fancy the player when they were both at White Hart Lane.
This is a rumour that has us sitting on the fence, we`d like to dismiss the talk as fanciful but something tells us there might be something in it.
