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

Juve Want Heinze

Gabriel Heinze could move from Manchester United in January as he has limited opportunities in the first team with the excellent form of Patrice Evra. The Argentinian left-back is wanted by Juventus who are currently in the Serie B.

Gaby has never regained his true best form after his injury and he'll find it difficult to get ahead of Evra in the pecking order. No wonder a host of clubs are interested in him, as his quality is still undoubtable. Now it was Italian giants Juventus who expressed their interest in Heinze.

'I know Gaby, I saw him playing in France for two years,' Juventus manager Didier Deschamps said in an interview with French radio station RMCInfo.

'At Manchester United he is used as a left full-back but I don't think it is his best position. I think he is more a central defender.

'Considering the number of left-sided defenders at Manchester United, if there is an opportunity and he is attracted, why not?

'He is a very good player of an international level. He is a leader, a winner.

'Gaby also has the advantage of having a European passport.'

Of course, I said I would be willing to let him go if we were able to secure Gareth Bale of Southampton. However, the young defender seems to be out of our reach, for his agent stressed his client would be happy to remain a Saint. That means for me we should not let Gaby go. As Deschamps rightly pointed out, he can operate as a central defender, too and there are two more players at United who can play on the left side of the defence and in the centre of it: O'Shea and Silvestre. The former is mainly used as a midfielder and the latter is not in the same league with Heinze in either position.

So my conclusion is: if we want to sell someone, sell Silvestre. Milan and Juventus will surely not sign him and our financial gain could be more modest than in the case of selling Heinze but the squad would be all the better for it.

i dont think thers many players that would go to juve at the moment. if we get bale then we should sell him but silvestre coming in at left back if heinze goes i cant bare to think of it

Heinze is a footballer and will want to be playing. If that's his route to first team football than he should be playing in Serie A come next season.

Juve will always be linked with a number of players. Surely they won't buy Chimbonda AND Heinze. Of course, Gaby can still say, he'll have plenty of opportunities: we play in the league, the FA Cup and the Champions League.

Surely we should get rid of Silvestra before we even consider of- loading Heinze?
