Please Heinze....not Liverpool !!!!

So apparently Liverpool has joined the race to sign Gabby. If your're gonne leave Gabby please don't go to Merseyside....what a disaster that would be.

The uncompromising full-back is currently representing Argentina in Venezuela but on his return to Manchester, it does look likely that he could be set for a move away from Old Trafford.

Heinze has cultivated a cult status amongst the United faithful since arriving at the club from Paris Saint Germain, but last season, was more of a peripheral figure due to Patrice Evra's emergence as first choice left-back.

Juventus and Real Madrid are known to be keen on recruiting him for next season, but it has now emerged that United's Premier League rivals Liverpool are also suitors.

Sir Alex Ferguson would likely be loath to sanction Heinze's departure to Merseyside, but should Rafa Benitez outbid foreign interest then a deal could yet be concluded.

Heinze, though, is concentrating his thoughts on matters on-the-field, rather than off it.

"I know some clubs are interested in me," he told the Sun. "My head is with the Argentina team to play the Copa America.

"After that and a holiday, I will know better where I will play next season."

Eidur once again linked to United

So here we go again....once again the prolific icelandic has been linked, according to media, with a move to Manchester United. Surely he is a good player, but nonetheless he is just not the kind of player United need. What we need is a real old school striker....someone with 20+ goals. No matter how you look at it, Eidur is not that player. He will never be more than a fringe player in the squad.

New Italian hot shot ?

Silvio Pagliari maintains Sir Alex Ferguson made a £10million bid for his client recently and, if the offer still stands, then the Italian international could be on his way to Old Trafford.

Quagliarella has become one of the most in-demand strikers in Serie A since his move to Samp last summer, and the 23-year-old announced his potential to a wider audience with two stunning goals in Italy's recent Euro 2008 qualifier against Lithuania.

After scoring 13 goals in 35 league appearances for Samp last season, his agent has now opened the door to a possible move to England.

"One month ago, Manchester United made a £10million offer," said Pagliari

"We believe Fabio is worth between €15 to €20million (£10 to £13million), hence if the English club's offer still stands, he could probably go abroad."

United chief executive David Gill has previously hinted that the English champions are seeking to purchase a new striker after already reinforcing their squad with the additions of Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson.

Nani excited about United

For most 20-year-olds, an important goal in a UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier would be memorable enough for one week. Or if you need more excitement, how about playing at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship? But Portugal winger Nani is not only doing all that, he has also agreed a dream move to Manchester United FC.

'Very fast'
"It all happened very fast," the former Sporting Clube de Portugal starlet told "It seems the clubs reached an agreement quite rapidly and from then on I knew my career would continue at Manchester United. They are one of the major clubs in Europe. Any player would like to play in Manchester United."

Death of his father helped Ronaldo shine

CRISTIANO Ronaldo has revealed how the death of his father has made him fearless on the pitch.

The United winger's dad Dinis died in September 2005 with a chronic liver condition but his memory has driven the double Player of the Year on to glory.

With the backing of his family and a photograph of his dad the 22-year-old has been able to take England by storm.

"It was a very difficult moment. It's not normal to lose your father at 20 years of age and you learn a great many things about yourself at such times," said Ronaldo.

"One has to be strong. I have changed a lot in the past two years. I certainly don't have any fear when I go out to play now.

United not after Anelka

MANCHESTER UNITED have told Bolton they do not want to sign Nicolas Anelka.

Sir Alex Ferguson was considering a bid for the French striker to boost his squad ahead of United's defence of the Premiership title.

But Bolton chairman Phil Gartside has received reassurance from Red Devils chief executive David Gill that they are not chasing Anelka.

He said: "David Gill has confirmed to me that Manchester United have no interest in Nicolas.

"Sammy Lee is looking to build a squad for next season and we absolutely have no interest in selling any of our better players. Nicolas, of course, is one such player."

Anelka admitted at the weekend that he would jump at the chance to join United.

He said: "There has been no contact with any other club for my signature, none at all.

"But if there was, I couldn't say no to a club like United.

"I have to find out what Bolton want to do first. I don't want to leave and it's their decision."

United have already spent £50million this summer on Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson.

Hammers after Richardson

West Ham are reportedly set to make a bid for Manchester United winger Kieron Richardson.

The 22-year-old has endured a frustrating season at Old Trafford after turning down a permanent deal with West Brom last summer to try and become a regular in Sir Alex Ferguson's plans.

Richardson dazzled in a loan spell with the Baggies during the 2005-06 campaign and even forced his way into the England squad.

But his decision to stay at United backfired badly last season, as he fell behind Gabriel Heinze and Patrice Evra in the left-back slot - and failed to dislodge Ryan Giggs from his left-wing berth.

Richardson shone in a central midfield role at The Hawthorns, and the Sun reports that it is his versatility that appeals to Hammers boss Alan Curbishley as well as a number of other top-flight managers.

His first-team chances suffered a further setback this week when Ferguson all-but wrapped deals for midfield trio Nani, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves.

And the United boss may be happy to cash in on him as he bids to generate transfer funds for a new striker.

Former Red Devils defender Steve Bruce is believed to be keen on luring Richardson to Birmingham, and Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has money to burn and feels the United star could form a lethal left-sided partnership with Matt Taylor at Fratton Park.

United after Saviola?

Manchester United are reportedly on the trail of Barcelona striker Javier Saviola.

Saviola, 25, has already confirmed he will leave the Spanish champions when his contract expires this summer, meaning he can move for no transfer fee.

According to The Sun, the Argentine has made it clear Old Trafford is his preferred destination after three years at Barca, despite interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, Bolton, Valencia and Real Madrid.

He said: "I consider my career at Barcelona is finished. There are several offers on the table."

Saviola moved to Spain from River Plate in 2001 but despite an impressive goalscoring ratio, he never really established himself in the first-team.

He was shipped out on loan to Monaco for the 2004-05 season and then to Sevilla last year where he helped the club win the UEFA Cup.

Earlier this season he scored 8 goals in 6 matches in the absence of star striker Samuel Eto'o, but again found himself benched when the Cameroonian returned.

United have been linked with a host of strikers since the end of the season including Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Nicolas Anelka.

Keano bids on Scholes

ROY KEANE has made a shock £2million bid for Paul Scholes.

Sunderland boss Keano is out to make an impact on the Black Cats’ return to the Premiership.

And with midfielders Anderson, Nani and Owen Hargreaves on their way to Manchester United, Scholes faces being squeezed out.

Keane will try to tempt his former team-mate into a final challenge before he retires.

Scholes, 32, has just enjoyed a stunning season and finished third in the voting for the PFA Player of the Year awards but that has not stopped Keane from testing the resolve of boss Alex Ferguson.

Keane may also move for another old team-mate with Newcastle midfielder Nicky Butt, 32, on his wish-list.

Ronaldo salutes the arrival of Nani and Anderson

Manchester United have agreed to pay a massive £17million for Anderson, 19, while Nani, 20, is a £14m capture.

And Ronaldo, 22, is convinced the young guns will justify their price tags by taking the champions up another level.

He said: “I can only say that United will be stronger because they have signed two great players.

“Anderson and Nani are phenomenons and the side will be improved a lot by their participation.”

Nani and Anderson have both agreed five-year United deals, which will earn each player £26,000 a week as they bid to follow Ronaldo to stardom.

United boss Alex Ferguson will look to Portuguese wing king Ronaldo to be a mentor for the new boys, who, like Ron, are without their fathers.

Ronaldo was devastated when his dad passed away in 2005, while Anderson’s father died five years ago and Nani has not seen his for years.

Nani’s mother Maria do Ceu was left alone to raise him and his EIGHT brothers after her husband went home to the Cape Verde Islands on holiday 15 years ago and never returned.

And Ronaldo has already vowed to make sure Anderson and Nani feel right at home alongside him with their new United family.
