Re: Football transfer zone season 2013-2014
On Rooney case, it all depends on the douche that is Paul Stretford. He is the main reason that Rooney is so overdemanding on the wages nowadays and values money way too much. I just hopes Rooney stays. I think he wants to stay as long as he gets a good playtime and that's up to Moyes. The question is how to make Rooney sign another contract with decreased wage package with Paul Stretford around? And how to make Rooney impermeable to lucrative offers?

Evra is linked with Monaco, who is searching for a left-back and will either want back their old player or buy Contreao from Madrid. Chicharito is not leaving probably but he's been on the radar of Athletico since a long time now and now that Falcao has officially left to Monte-Carlo, this may intensifies. I hope he doesn't leave - especially since Lewandowski isn't joining in. Lindegaard is nearly gone imo.
As for rumored players, there are many names but that was to be expected. When a new manager comes in, it's always the case. Reason:
- He'll be linked with players from his old club.
- He'll be having an eye on players he had on Everton radar.
- He'll be seeing some players United had their sights on under Sir Alex.
- He'll be given a possibility to sign players he dream of but never could struck a deal with Everton budget.
- United are usually also targeting some of the biggest star names.
When you adds all of it, that obviously makes a heavy list of players.
Fellaini, Baines & Jagielka are all linked to United right now thanks to the Everton connection. Btw, Fellaini is not a striker as you say. He's a CM that can play as both CDM and CAM. He played as No.10 at Everton, because Moyes lacked good striking options. However, Fellaini and David Moyes both admit that his best and favored position is at No.6. So, in case Fellaini is signed, expect him to partner Carrick cause United, unlike Everton, is far from shy in striking options.
He was eyeing Luke Shaw as challenger to Baines at Everton and he was interested in Yohan Cabaye, Adem Ljajic, Burak Yilmaz, Andre Awey, Erik Lamela among others back in Everton. Well, most of those won't really come to United imo; even Luke Shaw remains a possibility with his young age that fits United's policy. Cabaye would be a nice buy too but there are bigger names in that position on speculation list.
Then, we have players that United and SAF inquired/tracked down for some time. Thiago Alcantara, Victor Wanyama, Kevin Strootman, Ilkay Gundogan, Alexis Sanchez, Robert Lewandowski all among rumored targets for quite some time. I scrapped James Rodriguez since he is now a Monaco player. Anyhow, that's really an interesting list...
Fabregas, Benzema, Marchisio, Vucinic ect... probably all are players Moyes would have liked to have, but could never potentially buy with Everton meager budget. Well, Fabregas specualtion has really intensified in recent weeks, so it remain a plausible route. The rest, I'm highly doubtful of!
Finally, Gareth Bale, CR7, Marco Reus and to some extent, Frank Lampard all are part of the star names that United may sign. For Reus, it's practically impossible to me, with Dortmund's heavy-elite acquired status and the departures of Gotze & soon Lewandowski... Lampard signed a year-extension, it's still said that he wants one more year but I doubt he'll leave Chelsea. Bale is a target that United was always going to be linked with; though Madrid are hot-favorites. As for CR7, I think we all know the romance story.
But one thing I'm glad about, is that we're linked with many central midfielders and that's a great things. Thiago, Fabregas, Strootman, Fellaini, Gundogan, Wanyama, plus many above mentioned... are all wonderful highlighted names. Imo, 2 of those names would be signed to United this season with Anderson potentially leaving.
