New striker talk returns...

The Red Devils are once again being link with Ajax star Klaas Jan Huntelaar. The latest rumours suggest that United could be forced to buy a new striker due to fears over Louis Saha and his appalling injury record. Fans favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to retire only a few weeks into the season and this has left United short of quality forwards. The talk is that United will offer the Dutch club £12m for their prized asset, if a deal could be done for that price it would be excellent business.

Nicolas Anelka has been linked quite strongly with a move to the Reds, but he has now joined Chelsea, this latest move means that the Frenchman is according to Sky Sports News the most expensive football ever following his £15m switch to the West London club. Anelka's many transfers have cost in total over £87m. Some fans have been speculating that the former Bolton star is destined for life on the Chelsea bench, but the clever money is on Didier Drogba joining AC Milan in the summer. Watch this space on that score.

  1. Not sure what's the pblm: Saha is perpetually injured, lost all form if and when on the pitch rarely and Utd has just revealed record figures! SAF should not waste more time, go get Huntelaar if Berba is too costly. Lost Anelka to Chelsea and don't lose another good one a rival.

  2. I think Saha is a good impact substitute and what we have will do until the summer, when it is easier to get someone. Ronaldo and Giggs can always play as strikers if needed. I believe that its our midfield that we need to bolster this transfer window, as i don't think the likes of fletcher and o'shea are good enough.

  3. Saha can b gud when not all in casts sitting on the bench. I reckon a more clinical and accurate striker than Wazza. Huntelaar would be a massive boost to the frontline but dont think Ajax wud let him go w/o a fight
