    Our opportunity for benefiting from the Italian fiasco is closing

    Sometimes I just don't undertand our transfer strategy. Utd's ability to attract top foreign talent is usually hampered by their wish to play in sunnier climes. Yet when RARE chances like Tevez / Adriano come along, we just don't seem to pull the trigger. The situation in Italy was a heaven sent opportunity to bolster our squad (especially considering that UTD have a very attractive team with Rooney and Ronaldo - that's a draw for incoming players) but I fear we are sqaundering the chance. Come one!

    Ronaldo Keen On Milan Move
    Wed 23 Aug, 1:09 PM

    MILAN, August 23 (Serie A) - AC Milan are preparing to take a more serious approach to the transfer market having secured their place in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday night. A 3-1 aggregate success over Red Star Belgrade means the Rossoneri can now count on the added financial bonus of top level European football next season and can splash out accordingly. Topping their wanted list is Real Madrid star Ronaldo and Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani headed to the Spanish capital on Wednesday hoping to return with the Brazilian striker. "We have asked for Ronaldo from Real and the player is keen, but first of all we need to negotiate with Real Madrid," said Galliani after Milan's win in Serbia. Milan have already missed out on the likes of Hernan Crespo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who both joined city rivals Internazionale, due to their reluctant approach to transfer deals because they were unsure if they would qualify for Europe. However, the cheque book can now be opened and Ronaldo is ready to return to the city where he played five seasons with Inter. Carlos Tevez of Corinthians is another Milan target, while many more names will inevitably be linked with the Italian giants between now and August 31, when the transfer window closes. end
