Heinze: United Should Decide

Heinze: United Should Decide

Gabriel Heinze could be on his way out of Old Trafford in the summer as a host of clubs want him. He's clearly only second choice behind Patrice Evra but the Argentinian does not want to leave at all cost.

Gaby missed almost the entire 2005/06 season because of a nasty knee ligament injury. His return was not as glorious as a lot of people, including myself, predicted. He had an average showing at the World Cup but the demands of the greatest tournament were too much for him immediately after his recovery so he broke down again.

After missing the first few weeks of the season, he returned but the old sharpness was gone. He still harried and bullied wingers but his effectiveness was reduced and compared to Evra's highly impressive performances, he looked a bit out of his depth. No wonder he's linked with a host of clubs who believe they could make the most of his undoubtable qualities.

'I accept injuries have been my problem," Heinze is quoted as saying in the News of the World. 'I know several clubs are interested in me, but the decision rests with Manchester United.'

And I imagine that will be a bloody hard decision for Sir Alex Ferguson who, I'm sure, is still a great admirer of the player. But if Bale is really is staying, really signs a new contract at Southampton and Gaby would really leave the decision to the club, then keep him. That suggests he would accept being a back-up for Evra and they would finely complement each other, with the Frenchman's attacking abilities and Heinze's toughness. Still, I don't think he would enjoy to be a substitute...

Hopefully he can recapture the form that endeared him to us in the first place, I for one would be sad to see him go.

Wish him the best... but I can't see him staying come the end of the season.
