SUNDERLAND WANT JANUZAJ

Former Manchester United coach David Moyes is hoping to reunite with Red Devils prodigy Adnan Januzaj when he joins Sunderland this summer. The young player is reported to be interested in leaving Old Trafford as he has not been able to establish himself despite his brilliant start. Sunderland have been linked with a lot of Red Devils stars since Moyes took over at the Stadium of Light.

Moyes has confirmed that he is interested in Januzaj and Marouane Fellaini and would want them to join in team as the new campaign kicks off. There are reports that Moyes has doubts over the Fellaini deal due to the release clause of the player from his contractual agreements and there are reports that the Belgium international is not really keen on leaving Manchester United despite the increased competition.

Moyes Planning Luke Shaw Bid

David Moyes, the new boss at Old Trafford is all ready to pay a whooping 75,000 pounds a week to the eighteen year old Luke Shaw to bring him on board. This sum is by far the highest as compared to Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Man United’s Adnan Januzaj, where 60,000 pounds a week deal was signed by both of them as teens. With this, Southampton lad almost quadrupled his Southampton wages.

Shaw made his Debut in England on Wednesday, while the Saints seem ready as well to open talk to bring him on the team. Last July, David signed his 5 year contract, which was his first professional one. Besides United, Shaw was also demanded by Manchester City and Chelsea. Leaving back all, United seems all determined to grab the defender no matter what it takes.

Shaw however is an ardent fan of Chelsea since his folks hail from a place close to Surrey where the Chelsea team trains. It was however reported that Moyes still believes that they are in the top of the list of clubs who can grab Shaw.

Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s manager at the moment seems pretty unwilling to match the sky high quote as given by the Saints. However, Moyes is ready to gamble with Shaw right now, dishing out the staggering amount to bag the hottest young sensation English football has seen in some time. Shaw seems to be a perfect fit for the new United squad Moyes plans to field in the next season.

Old Trafford of late signed an extended contract with Wayne Rooney shedding out a whopping 300,000 pounds a week, while Juan Mara was captured from Chelsea for a staggering 37 million pounds, which is a club record.

WILL UNITED MAKE IT?

Manchester United are in danger of missing out on Champions League football for next season, which could create severe problems for the club on the financial front.

However, Chief Executive Ed Woodward has dismissed such speculation by saying that United will be fine even without the Premier European competition. He also added that the club plan to sign as much as four players in the summer, as they target about rebuilding the squad, which has been exposed by David Moyes taking over the club.

WILKINS BACKS MOYES

Former Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins has said that new manager David Moyes should win at least a trophy in his first season at the club in order to win over the supporters. Moyes comes as the replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson, who managed to get the club to close to 40 trophies during his 26 years at the club. This includes several league titles and two Champions League titles as well. Moyes, however, starts his United regime as a manager who is yet to prove himself when it comes to winning trophies.

Even though he was in charge of Everton for 11 years, he failed to win major trophies. Even though he cannot be expected to win the league with the club like Everton and their limited financial resources, many expect him to have won at least trophies like the FA Cup and League cup. However, Moyes failed to lead the Everton team to success in this competitions. Further, there is a fear amongst United supporters that Moyes may not be able to replicate the brilliant football given by Ferguson over the years.

Moyes’ Everton team are known for their hard-working abilities, but they’re not the best footballing side in the world. Wilkins is of the opinion that a trophy could change everything for Moyes at Old Trafford.

“Everyone has to understand that there will be new players coming in and players will go out and David will have to put his imprint upon Manchester United. But if he can win a cup this season – or even the Premier League – I think the supporters will say ‘good first season, lets crack on. I wouldn’t say anything derogatory on the Capital One Cup because last year we had some fantastic games in it, but Moyes certainly needs to win a trophy,” said Wilkins.
