Sir Alex Ferguson has kicked off the January transfer-window action by bidding for Benfica winger Angel Di Maria.
has reacted to Manchester United's stuttering defence of their title by
offering £9million plus Nani for the 21-year-old Argentina

Benfica winger Angel Di Maria is next on Sir Alex Ferguson's list

The United manager witnessed Di Maria's scintillating form at first
hand when he was at Goodison Park for the second leg of Benfica's
Europa League rout of Everton recently.
Yet it seems football is finally feeling the pinch this winter.
The Premier League may have its nouveaux
riches in Birmingham City and Manchester City, or relative warhorses in
United and Chelsea, but there will be few grand unveilings over the
next four weeks.
Indeed, we should not be surprised if to loan, beg, borrow or steal becomes the motto of this January window.

In demand: Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero is a target for both Chelsea and Manchester City

Business will be busy but bargains in the shape of swaps, loans and free transfers will be the trend.
move for Di Maria doesn't end Fergie's interest in a defender or
left-sided midfielder but he would prefer to delay further recruitment
until the summer. And he is not alone.
Arsene Wenger has
often been tied by Arsenal's purse strings but he reasons it is not so
easy to find what you want. 'Let's not dream. You must be a magician to
go out today and buy a player who can play in the Champions League, who
is free and who has world-class quality,' he said.
haven't found what we want but there is money there. Ideally, I would
just like our injured players back. I always said I would not buy any
players if we had no injuries.'The main focus is on Chelsea.
Transfer embargo permitting, they are the main attraction. Being based
in London, top of the league and blessed with a rich benefactor will
appeal to the twinkling toes of Atletico Madrid's Sergio Aguero and the
brawn of Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko.
For Manchester City,
transition is not as attractive to the world's elite stars as being an
established Champions League contender. Roberto Mancini will certainly
be a draw but defensive recruits could be where he has greatest
Alex McLeish will find Carson Yeung's £40m budget
a whole new experience but even he is mindful of upsetting his
improving side with any 'big-time Charlies'.
He said: 'I think if Lionel Messi was coming, the players might just accept that one. We want to maintain the spirit.'


He looks like a good player but I can't see this happening really.
