United to bid for Richard Dunne?

There has been a lot of rumours suggesting that the Red Devils will try to sign Manchester City defender Micah Richards, but that looks very unlikely given that he recently signed a new deal, added to which the Blues would want a lot of money for the young England defender.

However, Richard's team-mate Richard Dunne is available for a reported £5m fee after refusing to sign a new long-term contract.

The 28-year-old was the fans player of the year, but a move to United would be less than popular with the City fans. According to the latest news, Spurs are the favourites to land the player who was once dubbed the 'honey-monster'.

Apart from fearing a fan backlash, would Richards fancy playing second fiddle to Vidic and Ferdinand? My own view is that Richards wouldn't fancy his chances of dislodging either player, and that a regular first-team place would be his preferred option at this stage of his career.

The Irish international would be a great player to have on the bench especially with United just having sold Pique. Silvestre is also expected to leave the club this summer which could leave United short of top quality cover in the centre of the back four.

  1. United are apparently in the lead to pick up Alves.

    Sevilla have stated that they have already rejected offers for twenty-five million euros as they do not 'need the money', but will not reject offers that 'allow them to grow as s squad'.

    I can understand the need to shore up the defensive positions, but this deal looks extremely expensive, and might cost a United player.

    Is Evans on the way out? Along with a big bag of cash?

    What do you think about all of this?

  2. Fergie must have something up his sleeve. He's not that stupid to keep only two main center backs in the team.
