This is the week that I've been waiting for since the end of last season. I knew that sooner or later, the journalists would get fed up of referring to the Champions League final and start 'making' their own news in the name of transfer speculation. Come to think of it, it's funny how some of these papers had quotes from players who were God knows where on this planet.
This week however, the majority will return to their clubs for pre-season and you think that if anything like a transfer is going to happen, it will. We can now get things moving faster.
The press has wasted no time at all. Antonio Valencia is already being rumoured to have flown in last night for a medical at Old Trafford! Right now, I'd think that United fans would welcome any news like that given the club's silence as far as arrivals are concerned. I mean just about every player thinks Madrid are in for the treble next year so they want to be a part of it. That means that if your scouts are not up to the mark, there is pretty much no business going to be done this summer. This is where I think Fergie is coming form. I mean the likes of Evra, Vidic, Ronaldo and the like were got from efficient scouting and not big money moves. His transfer kitty will make it difficult for him to buy from big clubs as they all want a 'share' of the Ronaldo transfer... as though we shared him on pitch!
Anyhow,watch this space from now on as we get into the groove of transfers.
Wayne Rooney reckons that if he plays centre forward, United will not miss Ron and Tevez. He's been singing that tune for quite a while now, maybe Fergie will read this morning's paper today and then maybe, just maybe...you never know!
