Old Trafford boss interested in Mexican international.
Manchester United are considering a move for highly rated Mexican international Andres Guardado as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to bring in more creativity to his Old Trafford midfield. The Deportivo La Coruna winger had a good World Cup and has apparently been highlighted as a potential addition to the squad by the club’s scouting network who have been monitoring the youngster for a while now.
The playmaker had been linked with a move to the Premier League side back in 2007 before he made the move from Atlas to La Liga but could now be back on the United radar, not least because of the way in which he links up with his international teammate Javier Hernandez.
Guardado has had three solid seasons with La Coruna and is a key attacking source for the mid table side for whom he has become a crucial member. The likes of Real Madrid and Benfica have been linked with a move for the pint sized talent since the World Cup and it could be that Ferguson deems a move for the player as worth making before the transfer window shuts.
Given that the likes of Anderson and Michael Carrick have seen their form dip dramatically over the past year and that Gabriel Obertan has never really got going, a move for Guardado may well make a great deal of sense as he appears to have the talent to make it in the English top tier and wouldn’t be a signing that would break the bank.
