Rodgers: They Had To Be Sold
Fallaini's stint at United lasted one painful season
In a move that will be scrutinized for probably the whole season Brendan Rodgers speaks out at why he has sold Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini for a combined fee of £29m.
Mata was no longer wanted by rodgers and leaves for old club Chelsea
I actually wanted to keep hold of Juan, but he made it perfectly clear he wanted out. We have such a talented squad of players, that we do not want the harmony broken by one of two whinging players who think they are more important than Manchester United itself so I have sold him back to Chelsea for a small loss of £19m. This is not a huge loss and nothing like the loss we have made on Fallaini. Marouane is a player who had so much promise but has failed to deliver so he has been sold to Everton for just £10m. I believe in the long run that people will see this has been the complete right decision.
United Send Youngsters On Loan
Januzaj has landed a big loan move to France
Manchester United also can announce that five
of our brightest young talents are going on loan to gain valuable playing time. First out is very highly rated attacking midfielder Adnan Januzaj. He has moved to PSG on a season's loan and manager Laurent Blanc thinks a season with promising wonder-kid could bring his side bridge the gap that Monaco has had last season. This is a good deal for Manchester United and for PSG. In Adnan, we have a player who wants to make it at United but needs to show there manager he can cut it on the biggest stage. If he can then he will help us win the title and also help himself for next season.
Gould to get Premiership action this season
Promising Scottish midfielder Ryan Gould will get Premier League experiance this season with Swansea. The midfielder, a £11.75m signing will go to the Welsh club as a first choice in the terms of his loan and Brendan Rodgers thinks this will help the youngster. Ryan has a fantastic attitude and this move is going to help both United and himself. If Ryan has a good period on loan he will come back after one season and slot into the team I am planning, if it is necessary we will look to loan him for a second season, but his long term future is here at Old Trafford.
Young Croatian Allen Halilovic is also going out on loan
Young Croatian midfielder Allen Halilovic has moved to Holland to play for Fayenoord in the Eredivisie. He needs the first team exposure and when he returns, it will be as a better player. Allen was excited at the opportunity.
Ja sam vrlo sretan da se ide u Nizozemsku za sezonu. Moj dugoročno budućnost je u Engleskoj s Manchester Unitedom, ali za sada moram ići i dobiti neku prvu momčad nogomet. Ja očekujem nakon ove sezone biti spreman za ići na dobivanje na početne
I am very happy to be going to Holland for a season. My long term future is in England with Manchester United but for now I need to go and get some first team football. I expect after this season to be ready for a go at getting into the starting.
The other player going out on loan so far is the £3.7m signing from PSV Zakaria Bakkali to Lille in France.
The future is definitely bright for Manchester United.
