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

Bale, Hargreaves, Heinze

According to one of the leading tabloids (I'm sorry but I must not reveal that it's the Guardian I'm talking about) United are set to sign Gareth Bale from Southampton.

This tabloid claims that Southampton sources confirmed Sir Alex's interest in the player and they suggested a deal could be done early next week. The United manager did not wish to comment on this matter.

Bale's arrival could mean the end of Gabriel Heinze's United career but though AC Milan are thought to be interested, it won't be anything as straightforward as just selling him to Italy. Speculations are rife he could be used to secure Owen Hargreaves as Bayern would be happy to get Heinze.

By the way, the Canadian-born midfielder suffered an injury setback and is set to be out for another month but I don't think that would stop Fergie from signing him if he got the chance.

Back to Heinze: I'd be sad to see him go as he was one of the revelations of the 2004/05 season but Patrice Evra is constantly performing better than him now. He didn't really find his form after his lengthy injury and Bale has 10 years advantage ahead of him. And if Heinze's sale could really help us to secure Hargreaves, then so be it. Sadly, but we should let him go.

Of course, if we don't buy Bale then there's no way we could let Heinze go.

To be honest, I don't think Heinze would love to be a backup player at Bayern and the Bavarian's first-choice left-back is surely Phillip Lahm and he has the advantage of being younger than Gabby.

lahm could play at right back and heinze could play at center back i would be sad to see him go but hes not as good as he was in his first season and he dont seem to be going to get back to that. so i would swap hargreaves forhim and bale is a great talent and id be happy to see him come but if we dont get him we should look at baines at wigan

by the fact that ferigie gave a no comment must show his interest in bale....

we offered them a good deal too! by buying Bale and loaning him back to them for the rest of the season or even longer! that would have allowed us to keep Heinze a bit longer! please guy's dont give on Gabby! he is good at his job! he scares the ***** out of me!! and he's a good balance with Neville after all! dont forget freinds, he's had a bad injury and its going to take him a while to get his confidence back = he's only 27!! Neville is in his 30s and he is still the best right back in England if not the world! and speaking of age you cant question Larssons ability and fitness not after the villa game! come on you reds! see ya Chelsea!!
