Looks like United is gonna spend money this summer. I hope they keep most of the players. Wouldnt like United become as Chelsea. Buy-buy-buy

RedDevils5049d ago

Spend big, but maybe on some big name but No way this time we would do that cause of the market inflation, player like di maria cost too much, and not worth it, we might buy silva who know but we are gonna buy 1 player only in this summer

if Vida goes, Chiellini would be the perfect replacement. Also, Evans is a good lad and I hope he will get more minutes on the pitch if Rio is injured even more!

RedDevils5049d ago

he too much for the price, we would be signing the dannish defender, if Vidic decide to go and also we would be signing a playmaker to balance the situation
