Searching for that Centre-Back

The necessity to find a decent centre back, with Vidic leaving and Ferdinand rumoured to be retiring this summer, has seen two more names emerge as potential replacements.

According to the tabloid press, this Sunday, United are paying keen attention to Virgil van Dyke and N`Koulou.

The former, aged twenty-two is currently on the books of Celtic having signed for the Scottish side from FC Groningen for 2.6 million last summer, whilst the latter, aged twenty-three, is on the books of Marseille who, it is said, have rejected a bid of 11 million from Napoli for the player.

Moyes, talking about bringing in a new centre-back, is quoted as recently having remarked,

"I think the hardest thing to do is introduce young centre-halves. It`s harder even than introducing young goalkeepers."

"With the quality of the strikers in the Premier League, it is probably the most difficult position and you tend to look for experience."


It will certainly be interesting to see who Moyes does, eventually, decide to bring in.

So we've gone from Mangala and Zouma to Van Dijk. Jesus Moyes is a genius its no wonder Everton have plummeted down the table since he left.
