Heinze Close To Real Move

Heinze Close To Real Move

Manchester United have reportedly allowed Gaby Heinze to fly to Madrid to discuss terms with Bernabeu officials.

The player himself is quoted as saying 'if a good offer comes in, I'm sure United will let me go.' Of course, you never know what's the truth in these news but it's very widely reported now.

I'd be sad to see him go, for we all remember his excellent first season at the club where he impressed everyone. However, he hasn't been the same since recovering from that horrible cruciate injury. His attitude and determination are still exemplary but lost a yard of pace and sometimes looked out of his depth.

I think it'd be better to let Silvestre go and keep Heinze as a normal, calm summer preparation, without a World Cup could do wonders with him. But if he leaves, my favourite Spanish team will be previously hated Real Madrid. With Becks, Ruud and Gaby there it'd be fantastic to meet them in next year's Champions League final.

For all you United fans who voted for Berbatov in the poll, FORGET ABOUT IT. Berbatov already rejected you once, as did Gareth Bale, so why would he want to come to you now? He can see that Spurs are on the up and have a great chance of breaking the top four, so he has no reason to leave. Spurs wouldn't sell Berbatov to United for £50 million!!! On the subject of Heinze, i wouldn't mind Spurs making a bid for him with Bale playing ahead of him.

I think we need a player like heinze in our team. Evra will be first choice but sometimes in tricky matches (eg. away in europe) you need a tough takling player who wont get caught out of position like evra sometims does.

O.A.L.Get a grip son.You are light years behind us and now Bebatov has proved he can do it in the Premier league the REAL big guns will properly go after him.And its only another season until Lennon returns north if he keeps progressing.

Give me Huntelaar over Berbatov anyday, listen mate if you couldnt break into the top 4 when Arsenal lost Henry for the season and had ***** all transfer funds after their stadium move how can you hope to do it now? Why would we sign Bale when we have 4 left backs (Evra,O'Shea,Silvestre,Heinze) in our squad its best to let him get a couple off seasons in the prems best of the rest league (outside of top 4) and then we'll sign him when he's sick of uefa cup action. Why is Heinze leaving yet Silvestre is supposedly staying, Heinze is a quality defender, sure his form has dipped since his injury but class is permanent and he'll be a much better player next season i'm sure, plus he can fill in for Vidic or Ferdinand if they get injured i'd be a lot more confident with Heinze filling in than with i would with Brown.

ha ha OneAaronLennon must be crazy. has it even been confirmed man utd made a bid for bale? and as for berbatvov if he had any sense he would come to a team capable of winning things instead of staying at a team who are always gonna struggle to make the uefa cup

Bit surprised by Heinze leaving you guys especially as we got Bale. I can only assume Fergie has only got a certain amount of money to spend and is clearing the decks for other players coming in. Let's hope you stay away from our squad especially Berbatov and will be interested to see where Nani ends up.

That probably means that Silvestre is staying. He's a decent enough left-back and might bear being second choice. Heinze deserves more than sitting on the bench so best wishes if he's leaving.
