United Latest | Manchester United News
Sir Alex Ferguson has publicly pledged to buy ‘two or three players’ over this summer’s transfer window. The gaffer was speaking in America, where he revealed United’s list of fixtures for the 2011 pre-season tour of The USA. Sir Alex’s comments come as Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder is said to want to leave Inter Milan for OT…

Sir Alex praised the MLS’ growth over the past few years, saying he was looking forward to meeting three MLS club teams in July, before playing the best ‘soccer’ players in the league – in a match against the ‘MLS All-Stars’. United will end their pre-season tour of the United States with a mouth-watering test against Barcelona in Washington DC. Launching the tour schedule, Fergie said United’s American owners – The Glazers – will fund summer transfers.  
“We have certain targets in mind at the moment anyway. I think two or three will be fulfilled, there’s no question about that. The Glazer Family have always been very supportive of our desires to improve the team.”
the boss explained. “What we are good at is bringing young players to the club, like Chicharito for example. If you look at how, over the last six or eight years, we’ve brought in young players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.” 

“I don’t see why we should change from what we’re good at.” referring to United’s capability to produce men out of boys. “We will continue to buy, without question, and when the opportunity does arrive and we identify the right young players, that’s the way we’ll go. We’re particularly strong with young strikers at the moment for some strange reason. Sometimes it works that way…”

And as luck would have it, 26-year-old Holland midfielder Wesley Sneijder is apparently seeking a move to Old Trafford. United have, in the past, been extremely interested about the Inter Milan superstar, with Sir Alex speaking to both his agent and the Italian side over the possibility of a move to the Premier League last summer. Round 2 ?

40mill for finished article like wesley is reasonable considering its only half of cristiano’s fee. At least fergie knows his midfield is not good enough. We just lack creative force in midfield, the likes of kaka, iniesta or wesley will do it for us and we just need one marquee signing this summer.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 8:24:57 am

I agree with you but I think the marquee signing as you put it is a thing we are desperate for because the likes of all the top 4 teams are able to do… And its not a good thing to see us linked with top players then to have them snatched away by the big spenders this is why SAF and the rest of the guys have to play the game smart and hunt for good young talent in which he did very well last summer in bringing smalling and Hernandez.. But come in snijder

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 9:12:15 am

Its unlikely but I wouldnt say no to Sneijder. Kaka wont happen though he’s too old now for the fee that would have to be paid for him.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 9:14:03 am

I’d love to see snjieder in a Utd shirt, however I’m doubtful it would happen. Surely if he’s looking at young talent Pastorre is a key man. I’d also love to see Eden Hazard in red.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 10:34:27 am

3 players would b great but I think we should b aiming higher than the likes of rodwell. sneijder pastore and maybe Sanchez r more like it we need to buy players that r going to turn in to world beaters.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 10:39:40 am

Definitely need a goalkeeper, a replacement for Scholesy, and an understudy to Giggs.

Neuer / De Gea,
Schneider / De Rossi,


Nathan Quao

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 11:11:41 am

We need to buy players this summer ’cause honestly,we have looked bare and weak in certain games.We need a good defensive midfielder ’cause Hargreaves is a write-off and Fletcher can’t do it all.Our midfield has lacked bite and steel all season.Plus,we need a player like Sneijder to create the chances for the forwards.It’s worrying seeing Nani and Rooney do all the creative work.
And please let’s give Cleverly a chance to show what he can do or we bring in a left-sided winger to replace Giggs.Sanchez,Bastos and maybe Ashley Young will fit perfectly down the left and while we are at it,let’s sign Maarten Stekelenburg.We’ll need him.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 11:48:17 am

Let’s bring in Sneijder , Sanchez, young , Rodwell and De Gae


Sean 123 Mufc

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 12:19:21 pm

WELL WE signed Sneijder , it would be one of the best signing buy fergie in a long time . if we can match inter price there is no reason why they will expect the offer i think he is worth 35 million and that would be right i can see it now
Sneijder playing a killer pass to Rooney and he scores



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 12:23:29 pm

thoughts of sneider kaka sanchez all wont happen. united will and have to sign a goalkeeper. de gea and neuer seem da obvious two targets. de gea preference. da other will be rodwell who fergie has always wanted – he also covers midfield as well as defense which wit rio injuries is important. the third will depend alot on berbatov situation. If fergie continues da rest of year in preference of chico berba wont sign contract and now over 30 fergie will think of cashing in. Which leads to the talk of a swap deal with roma for de rossi who does want out. If united did bring in de gea, rodwell and de rossi alongside cleverly maceda wellbeck all comin back we be in a very strong position. vds, kuszczak, brown, hargraves, owen, berbatov all leaving



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 12:57:02 pm

Neur, de gea might be good, someday.., but a team like united can’t afford to wait for that time to come or taibi and friends saga will come haunt us again. Buffon and casillas or pepe reina are top three keepers in the world right now. Buffon is plagued by injury while the other are almost impossible signing for us. Fergie should gamble on gigi buffon.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 1:35:46 pm

Manuel Neur – Goalkeeper

N.Subotic – Central Defender

W.Sneifder – Attacking Midfielder

M.Gotze – Central Midfielder

J.Rodwell – Defensive Midfielder

A.Sanchez – Winger

G.Bale – Winger

Neymar – Striker



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 2:32:14 pm

de Gael,Rafael,smalling,vidic,evra/Fabio,nani,jack Rodwell,sneider,valencia,Rooney,berbatov/chicarito(this is enough for 2011/2012 season and u Barcelona will finish if this line-up happen!!!



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 3:18:05 pm

I know it’s unlikely but we might as well try and buy Neymar?



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 3:55:10 pm

Y neymar cause he scored 2 against the jocks? Theres no way saf would waste 40 mill on him. Y all this talk about rodwell he’s not the man to replace scholes sneijder or pastore are the way to go.


niri b

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 4:18:08 pm

buying just a attacking cm that can hold the ball up will make the entire team look better. cm is the most important position on the pitch. we have the defensive cover in smalling for rio. wingers we have enough and with cleverly coming back we have a young one to be a giggs understudy. forwards we are stacked.

just need a keeper and we can suffice with just a acm but we could use some cover in dcm but not as necessary.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 5:42:54 pm

Charlie adam, Ashley young and neuer…



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 5:47:57 pm

Yeh I agree with every1,we do need more creativity in midfield.I think we need 2 bring in pastore n costa n maybe Ashley young.probs need another centre back aswell


Sean 123 Mufc

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:08:58 pm

I HERD TODAY man united want Sneijder watch the space



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:09:56 pm

Hw bout we try gettin Sanchez aswel.I like th idea of bringin in gud young south americans


Sean 123 Mufc

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:14:06 pm

what age is Sanchez



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:29:52 pm




Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:30:00 pm

young bale modric ( spurs probaly wont let any if them go but try with cheeky bid ) and loris from Lyon would do me



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 6:34:20 pm

Yeh but dnt think spurs will let em go easily though.I think th young south Americans is probs best way 2 go



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 7:19:14 pm




Wed, 30 Mar 2011 8:06:40 pm

If Sunday was the first time youv heard of Neymar then you obviously in any position to judge who United should and shouldnt buy.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 9:17:03 pm

Def need a big time player for our centre mid ! Iv never known uniteds centre to be this weak , him , young and a keeper I guess but think we should buy at least 5 players which I think fergie has up his sleeve anyways.



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 9:44:32 pm

I hope im wrong but i think it will be chamberlain, rodwell and de gea. Chamberlain was all over news in jan then all of a sudden nothing, this to me means man u or arsenal have already agreed a deal!! No sneijder or sanchez, we dont do marquis signings any more remember?!?!



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 10:10:41 pm

Adam.I Wudnt mind seein them come 2 OT,but I,d rather c them south Americans come 2 OT,in sayin that any1 of them r welcome as their r already gud playas.fergie or whoever will b managing utd in th future will turn them into world class



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 11:32:28 pm

Van Der Sar, Scholes, Hargreaves to retire
De Leat, Diouf, Mecheda Pogba to return

What do people think



Wed, 30 Mar 2011 11:53:05 pm

sneijder is the player we want. Ashley young nuer and a world class defensive midfield
chamberlain will happen and I’d get cover for rio to bring smalling on slowly metersecker has been mentioned
young is the player we need and sneijder young is a proven English player and sneijder well wat can u say bout him he is world class


Red devil

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 12:52:18 am

N’zogbia, C.Adam, Scott Parker. Why not? We would get all these proven premiership players cheap. Also, they play with pride. I would much rather sign these guys then spend a stupid amount on 1 guy. Maybe this would allow us more windows to strengthen other areas. Just an idea, however maybe not a bad one.



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 1:42:22 am

Eden Hazard 4rm Lille cud b another alternative 4 us.only 20 yrs old


Malay love

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 2:00:23 am

Bren why the fuck do u wanna sell park!!!???!!!
He’s been quality this season and has started to score more goals.
Plus, he’s best friends with evra, and I think his presence is a morale booster to the squad,


Malay love

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 2:06:46 am

Axel witsel?

Apparently they want to move. Witsel + lukaku want premier league, but I don’t know bout hazard, bit I reckon he wants to be playing a higher level, as they are young many major clubs want in on them.



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 2:39:44 am

Think SAF has to get a keeper and Reina makes sense as he is accustomed to premier league and therefore fits the bill , if he wants a short term replacement then Shay Given is a top goalie as is Jaskilinen ? Of Bolton. Expect to see Fergie surprise us all as he has when he signed Cantona, Blanc, Larson to name a few



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 5:46:19 am

Sanchez,Young,Charlie Adams n De Gea !


Chris m

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 6:37:05 am

Wow bren just like that hey lmfao giys wer gna get three more bebes didnt any1 listen to sir alex players like sneider bale etc we not gna c them kind of sighnings anymore wer gna produce our own stars thats y theyv done that deal for the young brazilians i doubt any world class sighning the very best i thnk we can hope at a push is a top keeper and ash young,bale,sneider,sanchez,pastore laugh it off



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 12:59:05 pm

Adams , Parker ? You guys nuts ain’t you ! They wouldn’t do fuck all playing barca or half good players ! We are Manu not Liverpool ! An we dont buy big??? Course we do if we don’t we will end up like the gunners!
Rooney, van, veron, berb , king Eric, cole, stam, bartez, rio, that’s just a few we have spent alot on ! A good team is one thing but as we are united and want to be the best it’s no problem buying a world star is it? All we need is a world class centre midfield player an a keeper buy I’d get young as well so have him, park nani and Antonio for wings. Snijder an fletch then Rooney an the little pea up top.


Sean 123 Mufc

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 1:18:04 pm

David Dae Gae agent says they opened talks with Man united and he has a Clause in his contract so if that is nearly a done deal we have two names left now young and either Sneijder or Rodwell



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 2:02:20 pm

well said young Is a must and rodwell and chamberlain. either de gea or neur I’d buy a defensive mid like a parker so sneijder can create for Rooney and Hernandez



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 2:53:35 pm

Get batman, superman n spiderman. Spiderman behind the gol i guarantee no teams will score! Superman as forward and batman as holding midfIeld due to his capability to catch ppl off guard.. LoL



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 3:23:19 pm

Atleast we are finally pulling our finger out & spending money, if we get Sneider i will dribble like a baby, i’d love De Gea, Sneider, Rodwell, Young,Sanchez or Seamus Coleman & Chamberlain….but we all know Fergie will pull someone out the bag none of us have even thought of.



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 4:21:28 pm

What’s this about Rafael Leao joining on loan till the end of the season?



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 5:58:51 pm

Stekelenburg goalkeeper

rafeal vidic smalling evra defenders

nani sneijder pastore valencia midfield

rooney chachrito striker

lindegraad fabio evans wellback macheda celeverely substitutes



Thu, 31 Mar 2011 11:39:29 pm

He’s said he’s goin with youth, so I reckon de gea, Henderson and rodwel



Fri, 01 Apr 2011 12:53:27 pm

I reckon Robin.. Batman’s apparentice.. Hah!


Andy the Red

Would love to see some established stars come into the squad but once again we will only spend a minimal amount which will be countered with outgoing players.

All this talk about Bale, Modric and Snejdier are not going to happen. There is no way the Gimps will give up to £35m for one player unless an equal amount was going out.

Players that may and should go are:-

Players in
De Gae

Coming back

Promoted to First team

Basically don’t expect too much, the gimps won’t spend unless there really is a deal in place fir us to be bought by the Arabs!

Fri, 01 Apr 2011 8:53:10 pm

Ribbed it’s very obivious u know nothing about football- other than maybe a Football managers games on ur computer-
Park is a class player but he is now 29 yrs old do do u offer him a new contract also when this new rule on forigen players comes in u have to have a certain number of home players . I never questioned his talant or ability he could teach others a few things about his passion for the game- I would also sell rio but no texts bout that- Its a question of numbers, age and ability.
Also if we Get money from the owners this summer we won’t get it for another while-
So we need to buy young gifted and if English would b of benifet this time talent.
It’s a question of numbers



Sat, 02 Apr 2011 8:55:11 am

Does anyone know whether Michael Owen can do a Bosman transfer this summer? From memory I think he signed a 2 year pay as you play contract 2 summers ago, seems like Fergie is willing to let him go as there’s been no talk of a new contract. Hope we keep him, as everytime he puts a red shirt on there’s a tear at Anfield
