Whilst All Appears Graceful on the Surface….
Underneath might be a different matter!
Whilst all appears to be quiet on the transfer front, although in all honesty we might be resembling a graceful swan whereby everything looks serene but beneath the surface a whole plethora of things might be taking place.
Hopefully one of the plethoras of things will be looking around for a respectable, nay world class, centre back.
With both Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand having departed Old Trafford we`re vulnerable in that position and continued talk of signing the Arsenal defender, Thomas Vermaelen, hasn`t filled me with confidence.
However, lurking in the media gossip columns this morning is the suggestion that Manchester United are amongst a gaggle of clubs that are, supposedly, in the race to sign the Roam defender, Medhi Benatia.
The defender is rated in the £30 million bracket and as for other clubs supposedly looking at forcing a sale for the 27 year-old, then look no further than Chelsea and the Spanish giants of Real Madrid. However, I can`t help thinking that the price is a bit too steep for someone of that age.
But, just perhaps, this is a move that is being orchestrated beneath that graceful aura being given off by that aforementioned swan!
