Old Trafford boss eyes up Danish international.
Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently considering a move for Palermo’s impressive young centre back Simon Kjaer this summer. The Manchester United boss is intent on bringing in defensive additions to give his Old Traffor side more strength in depth and has earmarked a move for the Danish international who seems set to leave his Serie A over achievers.
Since his arrival in Serie A two seasons ago 21 Kjaer has risen to prominence with the Sicilian club helping them to eighth and fifth placed finishes in the process and developing a reputation for himself as one of the best young talents in the Italian leagues.
Tottenham have reportedly been monitoring the youngster’s progress and could well also make a move for the former Midtjylland man but Ferguson is lining up a move to trump Harry Redknapp for his services. With Rio Ferdinand appearing to be a shadow of his former self and with Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling both fast improving but maybe not ready to be first choice regulars a move for new centre backs may be a wise decision for the Scot to make.
Kjaer is set for World Cup action later this month and could well see interest in his services increase in demand if he puts on a good show.
