For a long time we have been rumoured to be interested in Miguel Veloso, a 23 year old Portuguese defensive midfielder. Veloso and his club Sporting always maintained that wanted to stay in Lisbon but things have gotten quiet around him.
Veloso was rumoured to be a +£20m target for us.
Anderson hasn’t been too terrific last season, potential is there but often his performance was below par and the question is if Owen Hargreaves will return and reach his peak again. Veloso would be a great reinforcement for the midfield and take work load away from Michael Carrick. And we have seen in the past that ManUtd CAN play with two defensive midfielders. Anderson and Hargreaves have regularly played together and immobilized the Liverpool and Arsenal midfield. Do we need Veloso? Has it become quiet around him because SAF is masterminding another coup?
In ohter news the Diva was presented in front of a record crowd at the Bernabeu yesterday. Being himself he had to hit out at the English Premier League and claim that the Primera Division a better league is… because the players are protected better!
I think La Liga is going to have more quality because of the players that are arriving
All the players have a lot of quality and the referees protect the players.
Gelled tumbler antics. But he also referred to his great time at Old Trafford.
I have to say thank you to all supporters, my boss, my friends and my team-mates because I’d been there six years and I had a good relationship with all people there
