Summer transfer speculation hots up: First United signing in the bag?

According to the latest news United are about to capture long term transfer target Owen Hargreaves in a move that will cost the Red's around £17m.

Here at United blog towers, we believe Hargreaves will be a great signing, because unlike some of Fergie's more recent signings like Djemba-Djemba and Kleberson, Owen is the real deal, he's an all round midfield player who has a great engine, he can also pass, tackle and score goals.

If United want to go one further next season and win the Champions league then strengthening the midfield is vital, the same applies to the forward line. United also need to sign not one, but two strikers, as it's likely that Saha will be sold due to his almost always constant injury status. United do not want to be in the same position as they found themselves in last January when they were scratching around for strikers like some mid-table second rate club. The big question is, how far does the Glazers ambition stretch in terms of giving the manager the spending power required to match and keep up with Chelsea?

  2. There's no guarantee that Rossi is coming back. He is set to discuss his future this summer.
