Will United be able to resist a £7m Spurs bid?

Football FanCast guest columnist Dee White feels that Frazier
Campbell has played his last game in a Man United shirt and wonders if Sir Alex
will be able to resist a potential January bid from Tottenham Hotspur.

When Dimitar Berbatov signed for United, I know many Spurs fans that were
somewhat perturbed. It wasn't so much the player leaving, which most expected,
but the very fact that United were seemingly throwing in one of their kids as a
makeweight to the deal. I know the very name Frazier Campbell was hardly going
to get the pulses racing, in light of losing the Bulgarian, but I wonder in the
past few weeks whether the player has finally started to win some supporters

Fraizer Campbell is an excellent talent and certainly has the abilities to
play Premier League football, but can he at United? Sir Alex indicated at the
time that any such move to Tottenham will only be a temporary arrangement, as
the youngster is still very much a part of his plans, but I just wonder if that
really will prove the case given the likes of Berbatov, Rooney, Tevez, Manucho
in his way and as we have witnessed in the last week the emergence of Danny

The problem we have at United and that is why, to a certain degree, I'm also
fearful about Welbeck's prospects is that are we any longer in a financial state
where we can blood an array of youngsters like we did in the mid 90s. Back then
the Premier League was a different ball game altogether and the pressure to
succeed wasn't as high and there wasn't so much of a financial burden over the
football club. With the top four currently as competitive as it is the need to
remain competitive in order to get the rewards that come both domestically and
in Europe is of paramount importance. I believe it has dictated a large part of
our spending where we pretty much need to go out and bring in the finished
product and why we could hope to see Campbell and Welbeck lead our frontline,
the bottom line is should we secure a deal for Tevez, then there is £90m worth
of strikers that stand in their way.

So do United fans agree with my thinking and do you believe that United will
be prepared to sell if a suitable offer of around £7m was to come in for
Campbell? I can never see the player wearing the red of United again and
personally I feel he is at the perfect club with Spurs as they can provide him
with the platform to develop into one of the country's top goal scorers, of
which I'm sure in time, he will be.
