Update on Available Trio!

Update on Available Trio!

With the transfer window set to slam shut on Monday 1st September, the indications are that as well as bringing in some last gasp players, Louis van Gaal will also be looking to let some go.

The indications coming from within Old Trafford are that, as we`ve reported previously, the following trio are available at the right price and if the move suits Manchester United:-

• Danny Welbeck
• Tom Cleverley
• Shinji Kagawa

The latest we have on 23 year-old Welbeck is that any supposed interest from Arsenal has cooled.

As for 25 year-old Kagawa, any chances of a move away from Old Trafford might be hampered by an injury sustained in the Capital One Cup mauling at the hands of the MK Dons.

But, of the trio, Cleverley is proving to be the most interesting. One newspaper I collected this morning, is inferring that Cleverley isn`t too keen on leaving Old Trafford this summer and is prepared to bide his time and leave on a free transfer next season.

Now if that information is correct, it strikes me to be a little strange that the 25 year-old is, basically, prepared to sacrifice a year of his career and also jeopardize his international chances, by remaining, at best, on the fringe of things at United.

Your thoughts on any of the above three being available would be most welcome but particularly the insinuation relating to Cleverley.

Letting Cleverly go on a free might be the best option in his current form we'd have to pay someone to take him of our hands. Welbeck and Kagawa being let go makes no sense though Welbeck admittedly couldn't score in a brothel. If anyones going it'll be Hernandez in part exchange for Vidal and Anderson to anyone who take the useless bloater.

Still would be shocked if Welbeck was allowed to leave. Especially seeing as Hernandez looks likely to leave and that will only leave us with him and Rooney and RVP who typically can't be relied upon all season long.

I think Kagawa's departure has an heir of inevitability about it and it's just a case of do we let him leave now or next season.

Cleverley for me needs to go, he needs it and his career needs it. Why he would drag out another year of being scarcely used, looking out of his depth when playing and getting abuse for it is beyond me.

Somewhere along the line the lads confused constantly recycling possession as being the way to play football and completely stalled in progression because of it: "I watch Spanish football a lot. If they pass the ball sideways but keep possession, the fans clap them ... Their attitude is that as long as you have got the ball, the other team can’t hurt you ... My job goes under the radar at times". With comments like that you've got to question how much the lad really understands the game. Anyone can play simple 5-yard backwards and sideways passes, it's not particularly hard. If that was the way to play Tom every game would end 0-0. Ultimately playing sideways and backwards is OK when you're trying to set the tempo or get a stranglehold on proceedings or patiently probe but when it's all you do and all you're capable of and it's not resulting in anything notable then you're evidently doing something wrong. He's been wrongly scapegoated but with comments like that he hasn't helped himself.

Its a shame Shinji couldn't get more game time but as it stands we could afford to lose all 3 of them if we can get our priority targets in.
