    Kieran could move on

    Kieran Richardson admits he may have to look elsewhere in a bid to secure regular first team football.

    The 22-year-old has progressed through the ranks at Old Trafford but has so far failed to hold down a regular spot in the side.

    Richardson insists he would prefer to remain at United, but recognises that he may have to move on if he is to progress with his career.

    "If you're getting older and not playing on a regular basis, you do have to think about moving on," he told the News of The World.

    "I've already said I want to carry on being a United player.

    "I don't know about going out on loan because I've done that already."

    22 is old for someone who is still not featuring regularly. He is not good enough for Man Utd. After 4 years, his time is up, he should leave.

    Richardson has never performed up to expectation. A lot of time he made stupid blunders. Its about time sell him off together with a few others to recoup some money to buy a top striker.

    I feel for him that he wasnt able to break into the first team. In other smaller EPL teams he would be auto first choice.

    This shows the high expectation of SAF

    No United bid for Italian

    United have not voiced an interest in Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella, according to the player's agent.

    The 23-year-old Italian international has been linked with Old Trafford in recent weeks but, although agent Silvio Pagliari claims United are interested, no move has materialised.

    Pagliari told BBC Sport: "I know there's some interest from Manchester United. I'm very proud of it, as he is. But United have had no contact with me or with Sampdoria.

    "He'd be keen on playing in England, for sure. We have many things to think of, as many big clubs in Italy too are interest in a player like Fabio.

    "We can talk about Inter Milan, Juventus, Man Utd, Chelsea - this is no problem for the player as they are all massive clubs."

    A host of strikers from across Europe have been linked with United ever since Chief Executive David Gill's admission that the Reds could be tempted into action if the right target became available.

    Ronaldo tips Nani to succeed

    Cristiano Ronaldo feels signing for United will provide compatriot Nani with the perfect platform on which to further his career.

    The 20-year-old winger recently passed his Reds' medical and will officially join the Premier League champions from Sporting Lisbon next month.

    Ronaldo is excited by Nani's arrival and believes he will go on to become a top performer for the Reds.

    “I still haven’t spoken with Nani but I am going to do everything I can so that his stay in Manchester goes well,” explained Ronaldo.

    “I really hope he has the same success as me, or even more, because he’s got the ability to do this. He’s joining the right club to evolve as a player and as a person.”

    Nani will be joined at Old Trafford by Brazilian attacker Anderson and Ronaldo says he will take it upon himself to ensure the pair settle quickly into life in Manchester.

    “Whatever I can do for Nani and Anderson I’ll do with the greatest of pleasure because they don’t know Manchester or how the club operates," said the 22-year-old.

    Potters eye more Reds loans

    John Rudge, Stoke City's Director of Football, admits he would welcome more loan signings from United next season.

    Reds winger Lee Martin enjoyed a productive spell at the Britannia Stadium last season, and Rudge is keen to see more United youngsters lining up for the Potters.

    "If the opportunity arises then we will obviously be interested in any young players he might fancy loaning out," Rudge told the Sentinel.

    With United's players still over a week away from returning for pre-season training, Rudge concedes that he will have to bide his time as Sir Alex Ferguson assesses his squad.

    "I don't expect anything to happen too quickly on that front because managers like Alex usually wait until pre-season is underway to assess their squad, before deciding who can go out on loan," he said.

    Having missed out on the playoffs last season, Stoke are keen to recruit burgeoning Premiership talents as they aim to escape the Championship.

    "We all know the potential to be had if you get the right players," said Rudge. "Birmingham went out and got three from Arsenal - Nicklas Bendtner, Sebastian Larsson and Fabrice Muamba - and ended up winning promotion."

    Barca star in the dark

    Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen admits he is no closer to resolving his future.

    The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks and speculation has mounted in the last few days following the £16million arrival of Thierry Henry at the Nou Camp.

    Gudjohnsen himself remains in the dark over where he'll be playing his football next season, but says he is continuing to focus on life at Barca for the time being.

    “There is a lot of speculation but I haven’t spoken to anyone and am only thinking of continuing here," he explained.

    “There were high expectations when I arrived and it’s normal that when a striker doesn’t score many goals people expect more of you. I also expect more from myself.

    “But after last season I will be more settled. I know how the club works, the language, and I will only have to focus on my game.

    “When I am in top form it will be easier to change people’s opinions of me.

    “I know that after not winning anything everyone is thinking of making lots of changes but I want to stay.”

    The Daily Mirror claims United will step up their interest in Gudjohnsen following Henry's arrival with an £8million bid being mooted.
    Wa... sad man duno where is he going to end up! Hmmm......guys do u think SAF will sign him? I think most likely no ....

    Parma claim Rossi bid

    Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi claims to have made an enquiry about the availability of United striker Giuseppe Rossi.

    The 20-year-old Italian striker enjoyed a superb five-month loan with the Gialloblu last season, hitting nine goals in 18 starts as Claudio Ranieri's side narrowly avoided relegation.

    Although Ranieri has since departed to manage Juventus, it seems Parma are still keen to take Rossi back to Serie A next season.

    "We spoke with the player, with the Manchester United Chief Executive (David Gill) and with Sir Alex Ferguson, too," said Ghirardi. "Now it's up to them to give us an answer."

    The Parma supremo admits his side face a difficult task in securing Rossi's services, despite alleging to have made a sizeable bid.

    A host of top European clubs have been linked with him, while the player himself has stated a desire to prove himself at Old Trafford.

    "Certainly it would be really difficult to keep the player, but we believe in this," he said. "From a financial point of view, we made our offer and I think it completely answers Manchester's expectations."
    If SAF were to release him we will have striker crisis as Smudge will be leaving, Ole ageing.....

    Newcastle and Portsmouth reportedly made 3.5m bids for him! Smith will not cost more than 10m I guess because he only have 2 years left in his contract.

    Iceman tipped for Reds
    Ex-Bolton Wanderers defender Mike Whitlow believes former team-mate Eidur Gudjohnsen would be an ideal summer signing for United.

    The Icelandic international striker's future at current club Barcelona is currently shrouded in doubt following the arrival of Thierry Henry from Arsenal.

    Gudjohnsen has insisted he wants to stay and fight for a starting berth at Camp Nou, but has also voiced an interest in joining United if he leaves Catalonia.

    And former Trotters colleague Whitlow believes Gudjohnsen could provide United with similar qualities to those possessed by United legend Eric Cantona.

    "I have no doubt he would be ideal for United and a big hit with the fans," Whitlow told the Manchester Evening News. "He's been a success wherever he's been.

    "Playing with Barcelona can only improve you. He has a rare quality of being able to link play and create opportunities for others as well as scoring goals."

    While Gudjohnsen isn't the archetypal goal poacher Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be scouring the transfer market for, Whitlow feels the 28-year-old has enough quality in other departments to be a success at Old Trafford.

    "Some suggest he doesn't score enough goals," he said. But you are never going to please everyone and I'm sure some Arsenal fans said Bergkamp didn't get enough goals.

    "But how much unselfish stuff did he do and how many goals did he create? Cantona was like that and I believe Eidur is a similar type of player.

    "It wouldn't bother Sir Alex if Eidur didn't get 20 goals a season because he would see what other things he brought to the party."
    U guys think Gudjohnsen can do the job?

    Good for Keane to get those rejects from Man u. Cos no reject in man u is not good enough for any team. Man u's reject is simply cant fit into game plan, tatics...... not that the players are no good! I will do the same if i were Keane!

    Default Re: Manchester United Part IV: English Premier League Champions!

    Anderson gets Man Utd work permit - At last!
    Brazilian signing Anderson has been granted a work permit by the Home Office to play for Manchester United.

    The initial application for Anderson's work permit was rejected because he had not played in 75% of Brazil's internationals over the last two years.

    But United, who agreed a deal with Porto for the 19-year-old midfielder in early June, have now won their appeal.

    United told a six-man panel that only Anderson's youth had prevented him from meeting the set criteria.

    Bent makes £16.5m Tottenham move - 1 more striker down, when is Man Utd going to sign 1? I think Torres is also heading for Liv, but these are overpriced strikers anyway.


    Today's transfer rumours:

    Carlos Tevez's "heart is in the Premier League" according to his representative Kia Joorabchian. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United want him. (Various) - It will be great if he join Man Utd but I think we can't afford his transfer fee this season.

    But that has not deterred Real Madrid, who also want Chelsea's Arjen Robben and Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas. The Spain midfielder is devastated by Thierry Henry's departure. (Sun)

    Liverpool have wrapped up a deal for striker Fernando Torres. Luis Garcia and £20m will be heading Atletico Madrid's way. (Various)

    Charlton are set to invest some of the £16.5m they received for Darren Bent in Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts. (Independent)

    Bent's arrival at Tottenham will trigger another move with Jermain Defoe going to Aston Villa. (Independent)

    Although elsewhere it is Liverpool and Manchester United who are leading the chase for the England striker. (Mirror)
    - Hmmm??

    Frank Lampard wants his future resolved by Monday. Juventus and Barcelona want the Chelsea midfielder. (Various)

    Another Chelsea midfielder could also be off. Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp says he would "love" to sign French veteran Claude Makelele. (Mirror)

    Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce does not know if strikers Michael Owen and Obafemi Martins will be at the club next season. (Various)

    Arsenal will trigger a £13m buy-out clause for Martins as they search for a replacement for Henry. (Sun)

    And Manchester United will offer £4m and Alan Smith for Owen. (Sun) - WFT?!?!?!

    As well as Smith, another new arrival at Newcastle could be Edmilson. Barcelona's Brazilian midfielder is a free agent. (Star)

    Anderson's £18m move from Porto to Manchester United could collapse as he does not have enough caps to satisfy work permit rules. (Mirror) - Day dreaming???

    Aston Villa's Steven Davis is on the verge of signing for Fulham in a £4m deal. (Guardian)

    And Cottagers boss Lawrie Sanchez is set to go in for another former Northern Ireland charge in Sheffield Wednesday's Chris Brunt. (Express)

    Malcolm Christie is mulling over a move to Nottingham Forest. (Star)

    Sunderland, Derby and Coventry want Blackburn defender Andy Todd. (Mirror)

    But one player Sunderland definitely will not land is Leighton Baines. While the Black Cats have offered £3m for the full-back, Wigan want £6m. (Sun)

    Rangers will make a final offer of £5m for Bordeaux winger Julien Faubert. (Express)

    But Bordeaux chairman Jean-Louis Triaud says Rangers have missed out on Julien Faubert as they have received a better rival bid for the winger. (Record)

    Celtic have agreed a £400,000 fee to sign Netherlands Under-21 striker Marceo Ritgers from Breda. (Record)

    But Rangers have lauched a late, higher bid to beat Celtic to Marceo Ritgers' signature. (Sun)

    Gary McAllister says Rangers would win the title from Celtic if they sign Robbie Fowler. (Various)

    Bolton plan to gazump Everton and sign Sheffield Unuited's Phil Jagielka. They have tabled a £5m bid. (Mirror)

    Auxerre are resigned to losing full-back Bakary Sagna to Arsenal. "He wants to wear the Arsenal shirt," said club president Gerard Bourgoin. (Mail)

    Between Owen and Tevez....I will prefer Owen although Tevez is a joy to watch and will add more casts into MU global circus team which consists of the chief clown Ronaldo, deputy Rooney, and potential PFA young clown Nani and last but not least Amazon clown Anderson

    Owen is a natural goal scorer, not only he poach, he can spins, turns and out dribble any world class defenders, his only weak point is header but we have Ronaldo, Vidic and even Ferdinand if duty calls......with the assists from the midfields and wings....Owen wil be the leading target man....nevertheless opponent can also expect long range missiles from the like or Ronaldo, Rooney, Scholes and Carrick

    Other than that he is just 26 or 27yrs old and this is the prime period if he stays healthy....also he should cost much lesser than Tevez although the former is a few years younger.....he will be the last signing that we need if there is no more target man like Huntelaar in sight
