Not so HOT: ManU bid for Martins?

August 21 15:05 2007 Print This Article

22-year-old Obafemi Martins is one of a number of frontmen to be linked with the Premier League champions, who have taken just two points from their first three games, which is probably the worst season start for them.

From their last three games, Manchester United have only scored one goal courtesy of Paul Scholes’ strike at Portsmouth, and with Wayne Rooney out for around seven more weeks with a fractured metatarsal and other ex-Toon lad, Louis Saha is still struggling for full fitness, manager Sir Alex Ferguson is being reported have plan to launch a bid for Toon last season top scorer.

Many Toon believer will not buy the story, it is widely believe that Martins is not the type of player in which SAF would intend to buy. Fergusson will look for a more taller and robust striker than the diminutive and pacy Martins, a shape for which either Anelka, Cole or Berbatov would be a better choice.
