  1. Nigel De Jong is old and he is injury prone,we should go for young and vibrant players.
    And again we should to to offload offload those we want to offload and buy quality players.
    We should also remember that Rio,Vidic and Giggs need replacements.

  2. I think this guy is old and weak, u can easily figure it out when looking through his injuries record and also don’t think he can resist injuries in the Premiership and even will not recuperate so quickly when he sustains .
    In summary ,L V G should think of other young guys rather

  3. I guess Nigel is the best choice ever. Man united need heros in this stage not talented and unknown players. Good luck Nigel
