“We have certain targets in mind and I think two or three will be fulfilled, the Glazer family have always been supportive of our desires to improve the team.” A good test as to the value of Sir Alex Ferguson’s words is well on the cards.
Arsenal and Manchester United have both scouted Jan Vertonghen and it is the Red Devils that are now preparing a bid of some €17M to lure the player to Old Trafford.
The defender has sent out mixed messages, stating he wants to help Ajax be champions yet expressing a desire to play in the Premiership. A footballer with a forked tongue. Wow. Hold the front page.
Arsenal’s attentions meanwhile are focused upon Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld. The player is highly rated – De Boor said of him recently, “Toby is an important player for us, especially since some important moments he managed to find the net.” If Arsene could land him for just €11M it would not only be good for the strengthening of his squad but it would be a coup.
There must be a limit to how many players will be prepared to sell, surely?
