Manchester United’s owners promised Wayne Rooney an entire new team - which could include Franck Ribery and Gareth Bale - to persuade him to stay at the club, according to the newspapers.
First they conned the bank, coz they couldnt afford Man United. As a result, for years whatever profit Man United acquires go into servicing the debt Man Utd doesnt need. Yes, servicing. Paying interest.
Now the Glazers are going to spend some cool hundred million pound on new signings.
11 new signings. Yes. Eleven.
Sjneider and what not will come in droves to OT.
The People make the bold claim that 11 signings have been promised in the next year while citing Wesley Sneijder as Alex Ferguson's number one target. The Mail on Sunday also report that the Dutch star could be on his way to Old Trafford after contract talks with Internazionale again broke down.
United apparently launched a £50 million-plus bid in the summer to sign wingers Bale and Ribery. Bayern Munich turned down £30m for the Frenchman while Spurs did not want to know despite £22m being on the table for Wales’ Bale. (Sunday Mirror) This is why Ferguson was bemused by accusations of a lack of ambition, and will again make a move for the duo in January.
The Sunday Express reckon he will splash £100m on players in the next 12 months, with a world-class goalkeeper, driving midfielder, winger and striker topping the list.
