A move to Old Trafford on the cards?
Various reports are claiming that David Moyes is worried that someone may sooner or later poach one of Everton’s prized assets in the form of teenage sensation Jack Rodwell. The 18 year old midfielder has seamlessly moved through the ranks at Goodison Park and has fought his way into the first team squad and appears more than able to step into Premier League football and shows maturity beyond his years.
With a good range of ability that has shown his ability to put in strong intelligent challenges as well as being able to spray out long and short passes, one can see what Moyes might be wary of the attention the youngster is getting. It is of course looking similar to the situation the Merseyside club found themselves in when a certain young Wayne Rooney was wowing the masses before he left the club for Old Trafford in a move that greatly irritated all and sundry at Everton.
Jack Rodwell seems to love life as a Toffee but will it become inevitable that he will one day move on from the steady top six side to a team challenging for the major honours? Worryingly for Everton it does seem very likely that one day a bid will come in that club and the player will find very hard to turn down and one can only hope that such a deal doesn’t turn as sour as the recent move that saw Joleon Lescott become enemy number one when he moved to Manchester City.
Sir Alex will be looking for the next generation of midfielder to help his continuing success at Man United and who knows, perhaps he sees a midfield combination that would include Rodwell alongside the likes of Anderson as something he can not resist.
