Luis Suarez Swayed by Man United

 Luis Suarez Swayed by Man United

Controversial World Cup star Luis Suarez has hinted that he will have to leave Ajax if Premier League giants Manchester United come calling. The 23 year old, who misses his country’s vital semifinal with the Netherlands, thanks to his handball against Ghana in the quarter final, has scored an extremely impressive 49 goals in 48 games for the Dutch giants.

Suarez said that despite being happy at Ajax, he believed that an offer from Manchester United would be too good to refuse. Speaking about the elite clubs of Barcelona and Manchester United, the Uruguayan said, “If they call, you listen. I would only leave Ajax for a team in that category.”

Sir Alex Ferguson’s plate is loaded with options in attack at the moment, with Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen, Federico Macheda and new boy Javier Hernandez all vying for places at the Theatre of Dreams. Not only Suarez, but fellow South American striker Luis Fabiano has staked a claim to play for United.

I think the only way Sir Alex will sign Suarez is if he is prepared to sell Dimitar Berbatov. At recent times of adversity, the Manchester United manager has stuck by his misfiring forward. However, he has given Berbatov enough chances to prove himself and the Bulgarian hasn’t cut the grade at Old Trafford. If Berbatov is sold this summer, expect Suarez to be swiftly drafted in. All Manchester United fans will hope that he doesn’t follow his Uruguayan friend Diego Forlan in arriving and producing a dismal 10 goals in 63 first team appearances, like “Diego Forlorn” did.

If Suarez doesn’t go to Old Trafford, then Ferguson will not purchase Fabiano. Fabiano is closing in on 30 and as illustrated in the past, Sir Alex likes to buy youthful players and mould them into greatness e.g. Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. Ferguson looks like he isn’t interested in Suarez, but you never know, he might be hiding all the negotiations under that chewing face of his and we might see something happen once the World Cup is over. Watch this space.

    Suarez is a typical Man Utd player all right… a typical cheat. Exactly the sort of player Ferguson needs to fill Ronaldo’s cheating boots. Sure is fine.

    Uraguay is playing the Netherlands, not Spain in the semi-final. Suarez is a good player, but many players shine in the Dutch League and then stink it up in the Premier League.

  4. LOL says:

    hahaha I wish Spain is playing Uruguay in the semi!!!!

  5. Satan says:

    even if Fergie were interested in him, his hands are tied by the club’s financial situations
    the days of 20m+ players arriving at United are over … at least for the next decade or so lol

  6. Nolly says:

    The guy is very good player i wil luv to at OT nd he also has a very good atacking force but can sir Alex sign him.i think manutd doznt hav money 4 nwo.

  7. Gary Talarino says:

    Two things – first, this guy’s a prolific scorer in the Dutch league. The Dutch league. He’s had a good World Cup, but I don’t see anyone tipping Gyan or Vittek to join Chelsea.

    Second, he’s a diver who complains to the referee every moment he’s on the field. Henceforth, he should be destined for La Liga or Serie A.

    • Dave C says:

      On that basis, Man Utd should never have signed RVN then…he was just a prolific scorer in the Eredivisie too. AND he had dodgy knees.

  8. patrick says:

    Sounds like a player best suited for Spuds… they need an 8th striker

  9. worth says:

    I think man u should sign suarez he is good player and i like to see him at man united next sanson and folan plese and if i can talk feguson now i we tell to sign those two players they can score goal with rooney

  10. Hell of a striker, him and Rooney would be a great combination. Get in Suarez and get rid of Berbaflop i say

  11. Gary says:

    Dimitar Berbatov is awesome, just a terrible fit at Man U.
    Watch him return dividends for any club brave enough to take him and play him in his preferred role and style. Hopefully in the Prem.

  12. riQuelme says:

    He reminds me of tevez, strong, powerful, quick, very good technique and he’s a born finisher. He gets in to goal scoring opportunities every time the ball is in the box he peels away in to space. And he loves to play on the last defender. I think United need him, also hes only 23. And ferguson can mould him in to the complete striker.

  13. yenebilew says:

    oh suarez is the right prson for man.utd . and luv to see him besides rooney this season . he is the perfect striker in the world at this time . so SAF should get him . .

  14. chebii says:

    suarez fits to be at man unuted, no doubt but fergie to play his cards well.
