i really have no idea what the heck is going on at man u. first van nistelrooy can leave. a week later, real are close to signing him, with only the transfer fee to be settled. and now. the offer has been flat out rejected. and i have my doubts that real would want to push their bid so high, and even if they do, it might not be in time.
fact: manchester united football club is broke
we have 12 million from the obi mikel sale. that is far far from enough to land a player that we need. even michael carrick will cost around 15 million
my question now is: we had around 11-15 million back in january, such that we could obtain nemanja vidic and patrice evra (the latter of which i am still not too happy about. he has yet to shine at this stage, and his counterpart in vidic is a much better performer for the team)
there was money back then, when we weren't in dire need of players. now we are. without van nistelrooy, we're gonna lose our teeth. there is the jaw in the midfield, and the mouth in rooney, but there won't be a way to finish off the opponent, without someone like van nistelrooy.
problem is, he just might stay, and his thoughts regarding playing for the team remain highly suspect. here's my take: i wouldn't want what could very well be the fate of my team resting on a guy who isn't too happy with life around him. he might just decide to screw up. i doubt he would, because the only way to maintain his status in this world is to score goals, so he has to bang some in to make sure he's still wanted.
but i'm really really wondering what's gonna happen soon. and something better happen soon. the season starts in about a month. that is precious little time to sort things out before the shit hits the fan.
we have a million players in reserve. but that's just the problem. they are reserve players. backup players. they need to have someone to be backup to.
