Man United Transfer Round up – 22/05/12

Uniteds first sign this season is Bebe the wonder hobo is back from besiktas….I couldn’t resist

22/05/2012 according to the daily mail united have been linked to young midfielder Michu who scored 17 goals last season in 36 games he is available for £3 million

22/05/2012 According to respected Irish journalist Miguel Delaney, Who is normally bang on the money, Man United are in the market for two attacking midfielders, a full back, and a striker. In his report in the Irish examiner and again on Twitter he alleges that Kagawa is more or less a done deal and will be announced on his return from Japan. United have apparently decided to press ahead with an offer to Hazard and have approached Tottenham about Luka Modric. He goes on the record as saying that just because United have bid for both it is unlikely they would secure both of them. His opinion on Twitter though is that the club will miss out on both due to finance and reluctance to sell respectively. The full back in question is the widely rumoured Baines from Everton who Fergie is said to admire. In addition he claims that United have had a £15 million bid turned down by Dortmound for Lewandowski. This is apparently from a source close to the United Hierarchy who rarely speaks out.
