Manchester United plot contentious Liverpool playmaker raid

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are being linked with a contentious transfer move for Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin.

The Turkish international is currently plying his trade on loan at Liverpool, scoring three goals in four matches in all competitions for the Reds.

Brendan Rodgers intimated that he’d be interested in bringing the player to Anfield on a permanent deal after the 5-2 win against Norwich last weekend, but had to admit that availability and price would be two factors which affect the potential length of his stay on Merseyside.

That could all change if Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson attempts to make in January though, with the Daily Stay claiming the player could be in the plans of the Red Devils as part of a swap-deal for Javier Hernandez.

The same report mentions a number of players from Madrid who could be on the Old Trafford radar, with Kaka, Sergio Ramos, Raul Albiol and Raphael Varane all named as part of a potential deal.

It’s a move for Sahin that would cause most controversy though, with the 24-year-old appearing to be well settled at Liverpool under the style of Rodgers.

However, Manchester United are said to be ‘tempted’ by the possibility of getting one over on their great rivals, and his recent performances have done little to put last season’s Premier League runners-up off a move.
