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

No Offer For Bent

United are thought to be ready to launch a 9 million bid for Charlton striker Darren Bent as early as January. The prolific forward has scored 7 Premiership goals this season and as the Addicks are struggling in the league, their most prized asset could be eager for a move soon.

Manchester United are believed to be keen on Bent but they face a real fight as Charlton have already indicated they are not willing to sell him.

'Darren signed a new, improved four-year deal in the summer and we have no intention of selling him,' chief executive Peter Varney told the South London Press.

'He's a key part of our side and of our hopes of staying up. There have been no enquiries from Manchester United or anyone else for that matter.'

I think he would be great for us but his arrival would mean the end of Smudger's United career for sure.

i wouldnt say he's that good to be playing for you. would u want him?
green giant 12
Yeah, I'd be happy to see him here. Good competition for Saha and Ole.
midlothian99
yes i want him espcially judging sahas performance last night bent can gurantee us 20 league goals a season and i think charlton will have to realise if we want him we will take him
rooneyisgod
It would be very harsh to judge Saha on last night's performance. I hope he'll deliver against Chelsea. Still, we need another striker as Smith appears to heading for the exit door, Ole is 33 while Rossi is still not ready.
midlothian99
Yeah Bent would be a good signing for you. I'm not sure it's a great move for Bent though. He's young and wants to be playing regularly, not in a squad rotation at United.
getintoem
ferguson has proved with saha if u get goals u stay in the team and thats what bent will do
rooneyisgod
reckon smith's career is pretty much over regardless...and he knows that too....if utd want him I am sure that they will get him....
ernshaw
more talk of torres today i think id prefer bent
rooneyisgod
Yeah, he's a lot cheaper and he wouldn't expect to be in the first team at once.
midlothian99
yeah and everyone knows he can get goals in the premiership
