Sol Campbell is being lined up as surprise defensive cover for Manchester United’s decimated back line after the 35 year old has finally sorted out his registration problems with Notts County.
United’s title challenge could be derailed by the lack of fit defenders and last night against Wolfsburg, Patrice Evra was the only recognised defender with Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher playing at centre half and Park Ji Sung at right back.
Nemanja Vidic should be back for Saturday’s visit from Aston Villa but that still leaves Jonny Evans, John O’Shea, Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown and Gary Neville out.
The Sun claim United are looking into how quickly he can play if he is signed with a debut in the New Year on the cards if the deal goes through.
[Is there any substance to this and should this rumour Fly or Die?]
