United to buy new striker as old names are relinked to the Reds?...

Despite Fergie ruling any move for a new striker before the transfer window closes in a few days time, reports continue to suggest that United might well sign a new forward in the wake of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's retirement announcement.

Reds fans will no doubt be scratching their collective heads given Giuseppe Rossi was offloaded to Villarreal just a few weeks ago, because it's not as if the club were unaware of Solskjaer's and Saha's recent injury record.

The usual names that have been bandied around are once again appearing in press reports linking them to the Reds Devils. Michael Owen of Newcastle is being linked along with Nicolas Anelka of Bolton, David Trezeguet of Juventus and Adriano of Inter Milan, but it's thought Fergie isn't that keen on any of these names.

Some media pundits suggest that United may well hang on until January, but that would appear to be a very risking strategy. Fergie's long term target is Dimitar Berbatov, but he is commited to Spurs for now.

The Reds currently have just one fit striker in the form of Carlos Tevez, and he has an international date down under when Argentina take on Australia on September 11th, which is just four days before United take on Everton.

Tevez will have to endure a 21,000 mile round trip to Melbourne and then be ready to play for United's as a lone striker against the Toffees.

Fergie couldn't have forseen Rooney's latest foot injury, but United have only got themselves to blame for this shortage of strikers and there's no getting away from that. It is a mess of the manager's own making.

  2. As I have been saying all summer, Manchester United have gotten themselves in Deep Trouble by not SIGNING A NEW STRIKE AND SELLING THEIR BEST PLAYERS! Absolutely ridiculous, any team would like at least four fit strikers at any point of time, we had Rossi, and now we don't. All we have now are, Tevez and Eagles(?). Where does Ferguson expect us to get goals from?
