'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Confusion Prevails

If it's true, then our beloved club's press officers make a fool of themselves. SkySports reported that United had confirmed Freddy Adu's arrival for a two-week trial.

The news in itself would raise a few eyebrows as the 17-year-old forward is regarded as one of the hottest properties in world football. But United have denied the speculation about his impending arrival today as Vital United had reported.

I'm a bit confused, to be honest, but that does not stop me from informing you he'll spend two weeks at United and if he impresses Sir Alex Ferguson, United could make a bid for him. He would not arrive until next June when he turns 18 but the Red Devils look to secure his contract as he is coveted by a host of European heavyweight clubs, including Real Madrid and Chelsea.

I sincerely hope I will not have to write about the club denying this information once again...

with all the big boys bidding though would this lead to him being a somewhat overpriced 18 year old with a lot ofd potential but as you rightly say has it all to prove where it matters.. on the pitch in the premiership..??
