Not a big surprise: Gaby Heinze wishes to leave Old Trafford in order to get regular first-team football.
Sorry folks, the last few days must have been pretty hard for you as we've been absent but now I'm back from my mini-holiday and will do everything to catch up with the events.
I had predicted a boring summer earlier but, unsurprisingly, I've been proved woefully wrong. Today the first thing I had found is that Heinze wants to leave then Gill is complaining over the Tevez deal and Alan Smith is still a United player.
Here and now we will speak about Gaby Heinze who is thought to be keen on a move to Liverpool - frankly, that would be dreadful. Let's hear Sir Alex on the matter first.
'Gaby's agent has advised us that he wants to move on.
'I am not too sure about that and we do not have a concrete offer but there is momentum regarding his next move, even if nothing is close right now.'
So, no concrete offer, he says. But sources seem to know that Liverpool have met his asking price £6.8m and are ready to push the deal through.
That's hardly a shock that he wants to leave. After all, he's a great player but in my, and it seems, in Fergie's opinion, he's only second best to Patrice Evra, therefore an automatic starting place would be out of the question. But I must admit that I find it strange that he is keen on Liverpool.
First, he could go to a bigger and better team. Secondly, he'd have John Arne Riise and Fabio Aurelio as rivals and though I consider Heinze better than both, he would be definitely part of Benitez's rotation system and would not be an automatic shoe-in - so his situation would not differ from the one he's in at United.
It is believed that Real Madrid will bid again for him but it's unclear whether Bernd Schuster would like the player. At Spanish clubs, of course, the manager has little to say about signings as those are arranged by a sporting director but the manager picks the team. Fabio Capello did not like Marcelo, apparently, but Schuster could choose the young Brazilian ahead of our Argentinian left-back - though I believe he'd go for Gaby's experience.
Ferguson reportedly prefers Heinze to move abroad - and most fans agree with him, as Gaby is a cult hero here and we do not want to see him in a Liverpool shirt. He would be the first player to move directly between the arch-rivals since 1964 - but I retain some hope that he won't write history.
