Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini may claim his side are better than Manchester United based on the current campaign, but Barcelona's ex-United defender Gerard Pique says he would prefer to return Old Trafford than switch to the Etihad if he ever left Spain.
10 Manchester United centre-back targets Here MEN Sport takes a look at 10 central defenders that could fit the bill. 1. Mats Hummels - 25-year-old Borussia Dortmund ace who is an imposing and talented presence at the back. 2. Eliaquim Mangala, Porto - highly rated Frenchman almost joined City in January - everyone will be in for him in summer. 3. Joel Matip - up and coming Schalke player who could star for Cameroon at the World Cup. 4. Gerard Pique - former United man has been at Barca for six years - could he be tempted to return to Old Trafford? 5. Laurent Koscielny - Arsenal man has really found form this season. 5. Daniel Agger - unusual for a player to swap Liverpool for United but he has been linked with a move away from Anfield for a while. 7. Giorgio Chiellini - 29-year-old Juve rock would fit right into Vidic's hard man mould. 8. Pepe, Real Madrid - City have been closely linked with the Bernabeu hard man, but United could offer him an alternative. 9. Raphael Varane - would be tough to get him b ...
United get £25k every time Ravel Morrison plays for West Ham. With former Red Ravel Morrison currently making waves in the Premier League with West Ham, talk has been of another Old Trafford youngster to have slipped through the net. Youth team players Gerard Pique and Paul Pogba have left in recent years before going on to star in Europe, and Morrison has the potential to show Manchester United what they're missing in the same league. Having paid £650,000 to take the youngster to Upton Park last year, West Ham would seem to have a bargain for the talent the player is starting to show. But a report in the Sunday Telegraph says that the Old Trafford club pocket £25,000 whenever the midfielder plays for West Ham, and have already picked up £200,000 this season alone for Morrison's eight appearances for the Hammers. Such a deal is not as rare as it may sound. Chelsea had to pay £500,000 to Manchester City on top of a £3.5m fee for every ten games Daniel Sturridge played for the West London club.
(I have to agree with Robbie Savage here even if Januzaj only played one great game) No offence, but why would Adnan Januzaj want to play for England when the country where he was born could win the World Cup in 2018? Januzaj scored two fantastic goals for Manchester United last weekend and the kid has tremendous potential. But, after just two games for United, the 18-year-old is already facing two big decisions which could shape his whole career as a player – and his national identity. Firstly, should he stay at Old Trafford in the long term? After letting Gerard Pique and Paul Pogba slip through the net, I believe United will make it a priority to keep hold of Januzaj. David Moyes has always been brave enough to give youth its chance, from Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley at Everton to Januzaj at United. Now, he’s got to convince Januzaj he is in the best place to fulfil his potential. Meanwhile, England are among the countries who are jostling to find out whether he can play for them. But if I were Ja ...
Poll of the day : Which player did Manchester United release too soon? The Red Devils have allowed several youngsters to leave Old Trafford in recent seasons, who have gone on to flourish elsewhere, but which one should they have kept hold of? Manchester United look to have another young star in the making in the shape of Adnan Januzaj, who scored twice on Saturday to inspire his side to a comeback victory against Sunderland. The champions are now ramping up the efforts to keep the teenager at the club having seen several other youngsters leave Old Trafford and flourish elsewhere. One such player is Ravel Morrison who hit the headlines on Sunday, scoring a superb individual strike as West Ham thrashed Tottenham 3-0 at White Hart Lane, described as a "genius goal" by manager Sam Allardyce. Elsewhere, Gerard Pique has won the Champions League twice and the Spanish league three times since leaving England and returning to Barcelona. Midfielder Paul Pogba is another who has gone on to enjoy success, helping J ...
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is convinced former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney would be a great fit for the Catalan giants, were he to leave Old Trafford this summer. Speculation surrounding the England international's future has been rife after retired United boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that Rooney had requested a transfer away from the club. The former Everton forward has been linked with a host of suitors, and Pique – who spent four years with Rooney at Old Trafford – is adamant Barcelona would be the perfect destination. “I know he has what's needed to be one of the three best players in the world. He'd fit well with Barcelona,” Pique told Sport. “He can adapt to many positions. He's best as the centre-forward, but we have seen him on the left or right side. “He is very versatile, strong, fast and has great technique. I don't think he would have any problems adapting.” Rooney, who scored 12 league goals in 26 appearances last season, returned to Carrington for pre-seaso ...
Pique could return to the Premier Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says that he could one day make a return to the Premier League. The Spain international started his career in Barca’s youth teams but decided to join Manchester United in 2004, going on to spend four years at Old Trafford interspersed with a loan spell at Real Zaragoza before returning to Barcelona in May 2008. However, in an exclusive interview with El Huffington Post, the 26-year-old did not completely rule out the chance to play in England again. “You never know what happens in life and you can’t say what you are going to do. It depends on a lot of circumstances, but come on, Barca is my life. “I was born in Barcelona, live there, my family is there, my house is there and it’s certainly where I want to stay,” maintained Pique, who also spoke about the recent signing of Brazilian wonderkid Neymar. “He is very good. He comes from having a successful career in his own country and has shown he is a great player, so I think his ...
Evans ready to prove worth to United Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is not kidding himself that he can relax now he has pocketed a four-year contract. The 24-year-old's new deal will keep him at Old Trafford until 2016, with his manager Sir Alex Ferguson predicting Evans will be around a lot longer than that. But the Northern Ireland star has no intention of taking it easy. For he knows if his performances are not up to scratch for the remainder of the campaign, Ferguson would have no hesitation in sending him towards the exit door. "It is nice to get a new contract and it does give you extra security," he said. "But I don't think it means an awful lot these days. The club could still decide to sell me in the summer if they want." That does seem a highly improbably scenario. After all, Ferguson was convinced enough of Evans' talents to let Gerard Pique leave for Barcelona in 2008. And two years later when, by his own admission, the Belfast-born player's performances dipped, Ferguson kept faith, wh ...
