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.
