United Latest

It happens every year: one big name that just won’t go away for the last 24 hours of the transfer window. This year it’s Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell. As Tom Cleverley leaves Old Trafford for Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan, will Rodwell fill his space, or is it just another rumour ?…

We’re almost certain that Sir Alex Ferguson holds Rodwell in high regard. The 19-year-old England U-21 International has been hailed as ‘the next big thing’ in Premier League football, and has duly lived up to expectations at Everton. Rodwell has been linked with Manchester United in the past, and has been touted as Paul Scholes eventual replacement – not necessarily for United, but for England at least.

Rodwell has made 47 Premier League appearances, scoring 2 goals – one of which (on his debut) put The Red’s to the sword at Goodison Park last season in Everton’s shock 3-1 victory over Sir Alex’s men. 
The 6ft 2in starlet started his career as a center-back – very similar to Chris Smalling – however, he has developed into a defensive midfielder, and more recently played a more attacking role – as seen against United last season. Rodwell could also act as a box-to-box midfielder, with the stamina to race around the field consistently.

Midfielder Tom Cleverley has joined Wigan Athletic on-loan for the new season, despite Sir Alex stating he would keep the 21-year-old at The Theatre Of Dreams. This could open the door to a new signing in midfield, but it could also point to the boss reserving a place for Owen Hargreaves.

The Sun have reported that United are set to bid £10 Million, with under-form Michael Carrick included in the swap plus cash deal. Other sources suggest that Fergie may go ahead and bid the full £15 – £20 Million asking price. United Latest understands that the club are interested in Rodwell, but may hold-off on bidding until the January transfer window.

Sir Alex is a keen admirer of Rodwell, who has been with The Toffees since he was a 16-year-old. Many fans hope Rodwell will follow in Wayne Rooney’s footsteps – who joined United from his boy-hood and trainee club, Everton.

One obstacle may stand in the way of a possible move – Rodwell’s new 5-year contract. The youngster signed the deal before the end of last season, and the Merseysiders are keen to hold onto him. However, the deal was only thought to have been put in place to raise Rodwell’s price-tag if a club were to become interested in him.

Rodwell certainly has a future at Old Trafford if he and the two parties involved make one for him, but will he join the World’s biggest club by dinner-time… it’s sketchy, but as usual: we’ll just have to wait and see !

Dream on

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:02:03 am

typical deadline day rumour… complete non story untill there is anyone coming out with proof of a bid.


Dream on

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:03:22 am

and I’ll add that considering they turned down 20 mill last season they will want a bit more now he’s signed a new contract and become more of a regular in the everton team.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:10:13 am

going to bed now how i wake up and see we are in talks with everton . the best thing of all i am of work 20morrow doing a sicky i hope it is worth it


too effin good to be true

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 4:45:55 am

as much as i hope this will happen.. unfortunately, this is too good to be true..



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 4:47:35 am

Depressing news, much rather keep Cleverley as he one hell of a talent. Rodwell a decent lad but aint a big name by any means and aint that special, just a cruel blow for tom who deserved a chance to prove he is the next big thing.

No new news about it…hope moyes become new villa manager..it makes united easier to sign rodwell…

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 11:16:10 am

my mate works at OT and has just phoned to say he has seen Rodwell leaving OT after meeting with fergie. Looks like he will be signed today after all



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 11:37:00 am

If it’s true – Thanks for the news

If it’s not- Don’t falsely build our hopes up.

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 11:53:33 am

Nothing happen until now…
But its kinda funny..we not sign ozil for 13mil,but we spend 10mil + carrick for young lad..



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:02:42 pm

For those talking about Ozil, forget it, he clearly didn’t want to move to united. Its strangely quiet on the united transfer front considering its deadline day. That could be a good thing. All our deals these days are kept quiet



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:18:14 pm

Sky Sports News have reported from Eastlands that there is nothing going on at Old Trafford, looks like no signing after all.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:18:37 pm

well well n transfers today . we want glazers out



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:20:05 pm

Leighred thanks for falsely building our hopes up.

getting pretty boring at old trafford now, seeing as i’ve been here since 9:30. met a few people, saying theyve spotted carrick with his agent and a few other guys in suits. rumours flying around that a man who is reportedly rodwells agent is here. no one’s seen rodwell yet. going to stay until 6 o’clock. walking around OT now to make sure i dont miss anything.


man united

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 3:28:15 pm

an agent on talk sport said he thinks they will be one big siging in the next 2 hours. i put my money on cole going to liverpool thats carlton cole and i would call him a big name player. fergie is probaly chilling out at honme our in france on hoilday . i hate this to. all my liverpool fans our laughing that were not siging

i think i have wasted my time today. loads of liverpool fans teasing me too. havent seen any players around OT. always liars around saying rodwell is inside negotiating. i doubt that. hoping its true though.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 3:33:36 pm

Four Year Contract.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 3:35:33 pm

i think it was someone elses agent. seeing a lot of guys walking around though. a lot of them entering OT.


man united

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 3:35:49 pm

i think you need a few drinks after this. it could be true why agent on talk sport said one more big siging but i jiust think its cole. is there any reports down at ols trafford



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 3:38:42 pm

sky are only covering solid deals. look at the liverpool miereles deal. no one knew about it. united are very quiet when it comes to things like this. apparently united are going to sign defour. the rodwell deal is very quiet. i doubt it will happen.

Wigan Athletic have now confirmed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan deal. We’ll bring you some quotes from Roberto Martinez shortly.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 4:03:46 pm

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 5:47:16 pm

They can negotiate deals over video conference, players r only needed at medical.
Anyways, with or without jack we have the team to win the league and bring the trophy back where it belongs.
In fergie I trust.



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 5:48:14 pm

It is understood that only a medical now stands in the way of the sneijder transfer



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 5:49:26 pm

i seriously think we should have gotten a creative midfielder instead of rushing and buying BEBE


man united 2

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 5:51:15 pm

@ jezzo9. a friend i know who is a friend of sneijder cousin told me to tell you lot. he is in hollan peapraing for holland euro ganmes on friday



Tue, 31 Aug 2010 5:57:05 pm

Wesley Sneijder and Steven Defour linked with us in the last minutes, but United-Latest believes this will not happen. Jack Rodwell to United is a no-go, unless they’ve already agreed the deal.

Rafael Van Der Vaart to Tottenham Hotspur… well done Harry !

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 6:09:07 pm

Sneijder to United is pretty ridiculous now, I agree. But Rafa Benitez has no say whatsoever on Inter Milan transfers. He is NOT their ‘manager’, he is there ‘head coach’ !
