United eye £20m Plan B as Nani talks stall & Why Fergie should move for Dede – Best of MUFC
You have to say it hasn’t been a bad start to the summer for Sir Alex Ferguson. Despite losing out on Eden Hazard he won the race to sign Crewe’s teenage star Nick Powell and completed the acquisition of Shinji Kagawa on Friday. After seeing rivals City nab the Premier League title in May the forthcoming season is huge for United after being knocked off their perch. Investing in youth once again indicates Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping to create a new dynasty at Old Trafford that will continue long after his impending departure. The 70-year-old has built and dismantled many a squad during his two decades at the reins but this has the potential to be the most exciting yet. Kagawa is a player described as being the missing link in attack whilst Powell has been dubbed a future England captain. Add into the equation the likes of Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling and Tom Cleverley and they have a strong Three Lions contingent aware of the United culture and customs. With Wayne Rooney as the spearhead backed up by the veteran trio of Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs the blend of experience and youth bears all the hallmarks of a Ferguson squad.
