According to Spanish media reports on Monday, Manchester United have been linked with Atlético Madrid striker Fernando Torres, apparently tabling a bid of 21 million euros plus Ruud van Nistelrooy.

The deal, which is worth close to 40 million euros in total, falls some way short of the symbolic 90 million euro buy-out clause in the contract of 'El Niño'. It runs out in 2008.
The only official bid so far is from Newcastle United for 38 million euros, with a further four depending upon performances.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been said to be preparing bids before this summer's World Cup. Chelsea would go as high as Newcastle, but Spurs and Arsenal value the Spanish international, who has repeatedly denied that he is leaving his childhood club, at closer to 30 million. Spurs' failure on Sunday to qualify for next season's Champions League could put such a splurge on hold.

I have heard so many things about this deal. It would be a poor deal if it goes through what they have reported. they say a Ruud for Torres exchange plus United pay 14.5 million quid on top of it all. I think that is the most pathetic thing ever

Have to agree cause that a shite deal if it went through. Still though I think its baseless rumours to sell papers. Making it look shocking sales more.

Summertime and the rumours are flying
Summertime and the patience is dying
Summertime and the World Cup is nigh
Summertime and who will we buy?

I think Fergie will watch the WC before any decisions, unless he really does move for Berbatov. We shall see.

Yup Berbatov will certainly be a steal.

This is the one player who keeps coming up in speculation again and again. Even BBC radio today were on about him saying that he would be an excellent buy for any Premiership club. However, if United are interested, then they are keeping it very quiet a la Kenyon getting his dirty nose into the deal.

You may well be right, I simply do not know. But, according to the so called experts, he would do "very well". Anyway, even if he were on a 20 goal man, how many will others get like Rooney. Saha and even Rossi if he plays regularly. Not forgetting our (hopefully) goals from midfield.

While he may not be a 25+ goal a season player, he may allow the midfield to score more than when we just hit the ball to Ruud. Quite frankly Ruud limits our play severely.

on the topic of 25+ a year strikers, we've never really had that in the past and it's never debilitated us cos most of our players would wade in with goals throughout the season... even Schmeichal! But in the early nineties and mid nineties we had likes of Hughes, McClair, Cantona and everyone wading in with 15 goals a season or so rather than one scoring them all. Very much like Chelsea at the moment in fact.
