Yes, you guessed it…a Dodo!
Jonny Evans: Ready, willing and able.
Manchester United have pulled the plug on a deal for Corinthians defender Dodo.
The Times says United have decided not to sanction a £5.5 million deal to sign Dodô, the Corinthians defender, in the immediate future but will continue to monitor the 17-year-old Brazilian after he spent two weeks on trial recently.

It appears the headline makers dream move will not after all be completed this summer. The much vaunted Brazilian youngster seemed likely to be the latest member of the club’s Samba club, but the deal appears to have turned sour. Should United fans be worried about the centre of their defence? Well as a fan, I can tell you I am not worried, not one little bit.
If the unthinkable does happen, and Vidic and Ferdinand find themselves out of action at the exact same time then we may have a little trouble, but that can be said of any club who loses the heart of their defence. However Jonny Evans is ready, willing and able to fill in if needed. Then of course Wes Brown is a capable centre back, hell even Gary Neville can be called upon to cover the breach. We also have the likes of youngsters James Chester and Craig Cathcart to revert to if the club is struck down by a huge injury disaster. To be honest our squad is almost TOO big, so no need to bring in yet more mouths to feed.
