Manchester United want £14m fantastic forward: Could be perfect partner for Rooney!

Posted by

As Sir Alex Ferguson continues to chase strikers left right and centre, the latest speculation links Manchester United with a damn fine forward!

This is the first instance in which Pavlyuchenko, 26, has been linked with the Red Devils, and according to The Daily Star, the interest comes off the back of an impressive Euro 2008 campaign with Russia, in which he scored three goals and exhibited tremendous movement and energy.

Such a style would be well-suited to United’s style of play, but the Russian’s occasional waywardness in front of goal is one thing counting against him, while his 6’2 stature would make him an aerial threat in a United side currently somewhat lacking in that department. (

£14m-rated Roman Pavlyuchenko is a fascinating player to watch, always full of determination and plays with a smile on his face. He is also in many ways ideally suited to Premier League football. Another plus for the Russian target man is that even though he takes his fair share of digs and scrapes from centre backs, he tends not to collapse in a heap and writhe in agony at the merest touch from an opponent (something other front men find hard to refrain from, naming no names, Didier Drogba).

It would be a brave move to make, given Roman’s relative lack of top level experience, but Sir Alex has never been afraid to take a risk so maybe it would pay off to put in a bid for the Euro 2008 star. Do United fans like the look of the Russian striker?
