Fergie braced for £5m bid & Sao Paulo open to transfer negotiations with United – Best of MUFC
After experiencing relative success in the transfer market already this summer with the signings of Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell last month Sir Alex Ferguson has hit the buffers in his recruitment drive. Brokering a deal for Brazilian international Lucas Moura has proved increasingly problematic with conflicting reports stating that his move to Old Trafford is imminent whilst others insist the 19-year-old will be staying put in his native land. Moura’s future intentions are unclear at this current juncture and United chief usually withdraws his interest to avoid becoming ensnared in long-winded negotiations. The fact Ferguson is persisting with a move is testament to the midfielder’s talent and the 70-year-old clearly sees something special in the teenager that he wants to harness and develop. Investment in youth has been Ferguson’s mantra this summer as he begins the process of leading the Red Devil’s through another transitional period.
This week on FFC should United think twice about his pursuit of Robin Van Persie and which Bulgarian forward could soon be leaving Old Trafford?

Quote of the Week
“Fair play to City. You’ve got to be a good team to win the league, so I wouldn’t take anything away from them. But if you gave us the last few games of the season and put us in that situation again, it wouldn’t happen. It was just madness. That’s down to us, though. We take full blame for it and don’t look to anyone else.” Rio Ferdinand insists Manchester United won’t repeat last seasons title collapse in the upcoming campaign
