Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson might have had a lot of success in the transfer window in the last two decades, but the manager has said that it will be extremely difficult to replace a player like Paul Scholes.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that the top priority for the club in the new season is to reclaim the title back from Manchester City. Manchester United finished in the second position last season after they lost the title in the last few matches of the campaign. The club have a great tradition of winning titles in every season after finishing second in the previous campaign. They have achieved this record in the last five occasions they have finished in the second position. Manchester United have made some key signings in the form of Dortmund midfielder Kagawa.
German champions Borussia Dortmund have made it quite clear that they do not have the intention of selling star striker Robert Lewandowski to Manchester United in the summer. Manchester United have already secured the signing of a Borussia Dortmund player in the form of Shinji Kagawa.
Just when it seemed that Sir Alex Ferguson will be able to strengthen his squad even more, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has said that any interest in the Polish striker will not be entertained by the club. The 23-year-old is currently on international duty with Poland at the Euro 2012. He scored for his international team in the 1-1 draw with Greece.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that his team will certainly lose the chance to retain the title if they lose against Manchester City in the Manchester derby on Monday night.
Many have been predicting that this is the biggest Manchester derby of all time, as both teams will be coming into the match with an opportunity to win the title. It is more difficult for Manchester City because they have to win in order to have any chance of winning the title. However, even a draw is sufficient for Manchester United, as they will be heading into the remaining two matches with a three-point advantage.
Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has said that it is extremely painful not to be in the first team on a regular basis.
Even though Dimitar Berbatov has come of age at Manchester United in the recent seasons, Sir Alex Ferguson has often resorted to using either Danny Welbeck or Hernandez as a partner for main striker Wayne Rooney.
As a result, the Bulgarian – who was signed for a record £ 31 million a few seasons ago – has found himself on the starting 11 only five times in the Premier league this season. There have already been a number of rumours linking him with a return to Germany, where he rose to prominence before joining Tottenham.
Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs was recently awarded a one-year contract extension. Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has said that Ryan Giggs is a player who is worthy of the new contract he has signed with Manchester United.
The 38-year-old is one of the oldest players in the division, but continues to represent Manchester United at the highest level. He is the only player left in the division to have scored in every season of the Premier league since its inception. More than the records, Rio Ferdinand believes that it is the professionalism and the quality of Ryan Giggs that has made him worthy of the new contract.
Championship side Hull city have opened the transfer talks with Manchester United over the future of winger Robbie Brady. The future of Robbie Brady has come under intense speculation recently after the winger has been performing excellently at the KC Stadium.
However, caretaker manager Nick Barmby has already said that the future of the winger does not remain within the club and that it will depend upon the decisions of a number of other people. Now they have taken the first step by opening talks with his parent club at Manchester United over the possibility of a potential permanent move.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be celebrating his 70th birthday on the occasion of the visit of Blackburn Rovers. Speaking ahead of the match, Sir Alex Ferguson said that Tottenham cannot be discounted as just another team this season. He says that Tottenham have the ability to launch title bid given that they have a game in hand over both the Manchester clubs at the top of the table. After the exit from the Champions League at the hands of FC Basel, Manchester United have been on an excellent run of form.
Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned the decision of the referee to award Newcastle United a penalty in the match against Old Trafford. Newcastle United equalised through the penalty and then managed to hold on till the end. The penalty was viewed with a lot of criticism from various quarters, although many would feel that Manchester United have had their fair share of dubious decisions gone their way. It is probably the first in a more than 100 matches that Manchester United have had a penalty decision against them. Still, it has caused United to miss the opportunity to close the gap on Manchester City, who could only draw against Liverpool on Sunday.
Manchester United's Michael Owen has been ruled out of action for anything up to six weeks, which means that United will be struggling to get him fit for the Christmas rush of games.
