Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was a player who topped many United fans’ wishlists for years, although his big move to Real Madrid seemed to signal the end of any possibility of him coming to United. If we were going to get him, then surely it had to be when he made his first big move away from [...]
Alberto Massacci is the latest young Italian talent to join Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson convinced him to come.
