With Sir Alex reportedly keen to bring in another midfielder to Old Trafford.
Rennes midfielder Stephane M’Bia has dealt Arsenal and Everton a blow with the admission that his ‘dream’ is to sign for Premier League rivals Manchester United.
As reported by Goal.com’s Mark Hinton on Saturday, it appeared that the Cameroon international would remain in France for a further year before completing a move either to the Emirates Stadium or Goodison Park.
However, having signed a 12-month extension with Rennes to remain at the club until next summer, the 22-year old has now gone back on his initial words by admitting he would even reject the advances of Real Madrid in order to complete a switch to Old Trafford.
“Who could be better than Real Madrid or Arsenal? Manchester United? It is my dream to play for them,” he told the News of the World. (Goal.com)
£12million-rated M’Bia is a much sought-after target and during the summer it looked like a move to Everton was on the cards but the deal failed to materialise. Some critics feel that Ferguson could well do with signing another midfielder but I am not sure this Rennes man is quite ready for a jump to the Champions League level. Do Man United fans feel that the likes of Owen Hargreaves are good enough for the club?
