You say that rumours should cease now we have signed three players? You're not too familiar with the English tabloids then!
For everyone who's got a heart attack when saw the headline: Djibril Cisse (and no other Cisse, as there are tons of them) won't join Manchester United, whatever happens in the summer.
However, he could be still important for us. The Mirror claims that Nicolas Anelka will be allowed to join us if Little Sam secures the services of the Liverpool striker, currently on loan at Marseille.
Of course, David Gill and Phil Gartside denied the whole Anelka story but the paper says sources confirmed the United chief executive had indeed made an enquire about the Frenchman's availability...
I hope it's not true so go on to happier things. Javier Saviola, one of the most coveted Bosmans is ready to join United, according to various sources. The little Argentinian told the press that he considers his Barcelona career finished and he's looking to leave - no big surprises there.
United are set to fight with Real for his services - now that's truly insane as the player denied back in January that he would ever move to Madrid. Saviola is not a Luis Figo and as Barca fans love him he would not want to betray them, according to the man himself.
The two Spanish giants (looked rather like dwarfs throughout this season but that's another story) will be involved in more transfer dealings regarding United as both want to sign Gabriel Heinze - the Argentinian defender so far has not committed himself anywhere, he'd been quoted as saying the only thing he knows is that he's a Manchester United player at the moment. Hopefully, the same thing will be true on September 1.
Would you have thought we are after the new Ronaldo? You say we've already signed Nani? Yes, but there's another Ronaldo out there, this time 17-year-old Hungarian starlet Roland Varga of MTK Budapest whose agent told SkySports that though the kid had trials with Espanyol, Tottenham and other clubs, they'd be glad if the reports in his homeland about United's interests were true. He's said to be a striker so I don't really understand how he could be the new Ronaldo no. 2 but that hardly matters.
And... that's it. It's been relatively quiet in terms of rumours recently and while I did not keep my promise of writing about a lot of players I'd like to see here there's certainly one such footballer above. A little hint: he's older than 17 and he's not French and he's not a United player right now.
