Last Minute Bid By Manchester United
29 August 2012
Manchester United last night failed in an eleventh hour bid for Fulham’s supremely talented Moussa Dembele. The Belgian, who ripped Manchester United to pieces at times at the weekend, was the subject of a late bid from Sir Alex Ferguson. Alas, Tottenham offered more, and have all but sealed the deal.
The Guardian reports today that while Manchester United came in for the player, Tottenham clearly wanted him that much more and that the deal is now pretty much done.
Anyone who saw Dembele’s performance against Manchester United at the weekend would have wanted to sign the player for their club there and then. On a pitch full of superstars, Dembele probably shone the brightest of all. Time and again he picked the ball up and simply glided through allcomers. His pace, dribbling ability and shooting quality, combined with a superb physique make him one of the rarest creatures in the league.
We at soccersweep believe that, despite having done some excellent business this summer, Manchester United will live to regret not signing Moussa Dembele when they had the chance at £15m. If he keeps performing like this, that price tag will seem like peanuts in a year.
