Fergie on alert over £17m clause & United set for transfer disappointment – Best of MUFC
With their rivals are splashing out lucrative sums on Europe’s hottest talents you’d think Manchester United are being left behind as the summer transfer market kicks. A modest sum of £16 million has left the Old Trafford coffers with Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa ‘s arrival followed swiftly by the capture of Crewe Alexandra star Nick Powell. The signing of Kagawa was seen as something of a coup around the continent but it’s 18-year-old Powell’s move to the Red Devil’s that has really set tongues wagging closer to home. The teenagers meteoric rise to prominence in the last 12-months has led to him being slated as a future England captain and it’s expected that he’ll have no issues with the step up from League Two to the Premier League. In fact Powell couldn’t have placed his development into the hands of a better man and there is no doubt Ferguson will mould him into a world class player over the coming years. The midfielder certainly has a maturity that belies his tender age not to mention his eye for a pass, self-assurance in possession and capability to score from anywhere on the field. United fans can certainly look forward to watching Powell’s development at the club as Ferguson continues his plan to inject youth into his ageing squad.
This week on FFC should are United set to fail in their top striking target and which Dutch frontman could Ferguson be about to turn his attentions too?
