Nemanja Vidic agrees to new deal

Posted on July 23, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Man United News, Players   3 Comments »

Following Wayne Rooney’s recent contract extension Manchester United confirmed that Nemanja Vidic has agreed to a new long-term deal at the club. This comes straight from David Gill on the official site and MUTV, so this should put an end to the uncertainty surrounding the player the past 24 hours. The deal has been verbally agreed, and the Serbian centre back will put pen to paper when he returns from holiday at the beginning of August.

Usually I would post a poll here, but “Are you pleased that Vidic is staying?” doesn’t seem like a worthwhile question.

This has easily been the slowest day for Manchester United news since I started writing the Stretty Stories. The big news is United’s plans to offer Vidic a new deal in order to secure his Old Trafford future. Also in the news is Sir Alex’s rumored interest in Steven Defour and Welbeck being linked with a Sunderland loan.

Despite Sir Alex insisting he is happy with the squad, United continues to be linked with players. I’m curious to see how many of you think there is still some business to be done.

Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverly to be sent out on loan?

Posted on July 22, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Man United News, Players, Premier League, Press   4 Comments »

Sir Alex made it clear today he is planning to send Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverly out on loan for the upcoming season. While both were loaned to Championship clubs last season, this season Sir Alex intends to send the duo to Premier League clubs. Keeping them in the top flight is a clear sign of the high expectations he has for these two.

Nemanja Vidic Transfer News: Sir Alex Ferguson is uncertain

Posted on July 22, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Man United News, Players, Press   5 Comments »

For the past few transfer windows there has been an air of uncertainty surrounding Nemanja Vidic, but thus far we’ve managed to retain his services. It seems his future has grown even more uncertain. When asked about Vidic’s future, Sir Alex simply responded, “I can’t clarify it at all.” He did go on to state he believe Vidic would play for United this season, but it is hardly the reassuring response fans are looking for. The vultures from Real Madrid are surely circling above Old Trafford ready to make their move should Vidic’s United career come to a figurative death.

Surely Mesut Ozil is value for money Fergie?

Mesut Ozil

For the regular readers of the blog you will be well aware that I am a realist, rather than a fantasist who loses himself in endless transfer possibilities. When I was younger, maybe I thought “Could we sign a Roberto Baggio or a Marco Van Basten?” – which at the time was ludicrous, considering the attraction of Italy – however, with Manchester City signing David Silva and David Villa moving to Barcelona before the World Cup, surely there is potential to add to this already impressive squad so that United can challenge both domestically and on a European front?
