Sir Alex Ferguson wants to bring Argentine to Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly interested in signing Inter Milan’s massively experienced Argentine midfielder Esteban Cambiasso. The Manchester United boss is looking to bring in defensive minded midfield options as he considers alternative to injury prone Owen Hargreaves who himself may be on his way to an Old Trafford exit.
Reports from Italy suggest that if San Siro boss Jose Mourinho decides to make a much speculated move to Real Madrid, who are apparently about to sack Manuel Pellegrini, then a number of Inter Milan players could be set to leave the club. Esteban Cambiasso was surprisingly left out of Diego Maradona’s Argentine World Cup squad but picked himself up to help Inter to yet another Serie A title.
Ferguson is known to be a fan of the former Real Madrid and River Plate man and the 29 year old may feel that the time is right for a new challenge after six seasons, and five titles, in Serie A. If the defensive midfielder manages to net the Champions League next week then he may feel a departure even more timely.
Manchester United have been linked with a number of midfielders after seeing players like Michael Carrick and Anderson put in a fairly average seasons. Add to that the fact that Paul Scholes is nearing the end of his glittering career at the club and the signs point to the need for reinforcements. Cambiasso is a vastly experienced performer and is extremely fit and has many seasons left in the tank and could well be a smart signing.
