You get the feeling that this summer will be one of upheaval at Manchester United. In the wake of sacrificing their Premier League crown to noisy neighbours City the rumours have cultivated that Sir Alex Ferguson is planning a major overhaul in an effort to wrestle the title away from their rivals next season. Some of the names being linked with transfer to Old Trafford are enough to make any football fan salivate and if theres anyone that can persuaded them to leave their respective clubs to join the club then it’s Ferguson. As the Eden Hazard saga begins to pick up speed the 70-year-old has turned his attentions to other targets as the highly-rated Belgian mulls over which English side he’ll eventually pitch up at. In the meantime the United chief has set his signs on midfielders Shinji Kagawa and Kevin Strootman along with Leighton Baines. Both positions let the Red Devils down last season and Ferguson knows strengthening them will give his side a fighting chance of knocking City off their perch next season.
This week on FFC is United’s resident Bulgarian set to quit the club and is the pursuit of Hazard even worth the time and effort for Sir Alex?

“I think I did well in the few opportunities that I received. I am a little frustrated by the way this happened, I do not think I deserved it. But I have dignity and I stopped going to such meetings, it is clear that I’m leaving United. It’s obvious that I have to leave.
