Double blow for Fergie on top striker targets....

Manchester United's top summer priority on incoming transfers is to sign a quality striker and over the last few weeks several names have been strongly linked with the Reds. Lyon's Karim Benzema has been the subject of a lot speculation linking him to United and host of top European clubs. However, at the beginning of this month the player hinted strongly about his desire to play for Real Madrid and today his club president Jean-Michel Aulas has laughed off yet more reports linking with a summer move to United.

One thing is for certain, if United receive no encouragement from the player concerned regarding a desire to play for the Champions they will end their interest quickly. Reading between the lines, it seems that Karim Benzema will not be signing for United this summer and his club Lyon do not seem interested in selling at this moment in time.

There's more bad news to report on another "top target" because Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has also dropped a massive come and get him hint to Real Madrid "It is true that there has been a of of talk about me going to Real Madrid and that would be thrilling because they are such a great club".

Fergie will not be pleased when he reads these quotes from the Dutch striker. It remains to be seen who the Reds will sign with Roque Santa Cruz reportedly figuring highly on Wenger's wanted list.

Finally, injury dogged Louis Saha has today been linked with a move to Bolton Wanderers.

  1. How dumb can you be given the Ronaldo situation. Maybe Huntelaar knows that United aren't interested?
