Manchester United are reportedly ready to join the race to sign Bolton Wanderers centre back Gary Cahill. The Old Trafford boss has watched on as his side have struggled defensively this season and with Rio Ferdinand having recurring injury problems and Jonny Evans struggling for form a move for the England international may be a wise one.
The Reebok Stadium chairman Phil Gartside has admitted that the club will look to accept offers for their star performers in order to cover massive debts and the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal are also very interested, Ferguson hopes to lure the 24 year old former Aston Villa man to Man United.
Cahill has been remarkably consistent over the past two seasons and has garnered a great deal of interest and the fact that Gartside has been so honest about the club’s financial problems the Bolton defender may well end up the subject of a bidding war.
Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to build a new generation of talent and whilst the Scot signed Chris Smalling in the summer he may feel that Cahill is to good a prospect to miss out on. Fabio Capello sees the Sheffield born player as an England regular for the future and it appears the renewed interest in the Bolton man would appear to suggest he has a great deal to offer.
