It's not the worst thing to have him (if it were true) but I think we'd be better off concentrating on finding a strong holding midfielder.
No matter what, a world class midfielfer should be number 1 priority if you consider change of formation/tactics.
Assume Rooney is up front with Owen or another out and out striker. Without defensive minded forwards (Rooney and Tevez), we'd need a strong midfield to protect the defence.
with Valencia playing on the right we will immediately have a wide player who can track back and is a good tackler so we will have better cover than with Ronaldo who did the minimum of defending.Fletcher when playing with Carrick gives us quite good defensive cover in midfield and hopefully Hargreaves will return to further bolster the squad.If Rooney is upfront with Berbatov he will also do his share of covering back so i am not really unduly worried about a defensive midfielder.

I think Toure is lined up if/when Barca get The Argie lad from Liverpool. I have no idea why Barca would prefer him, but....
Huntelaar is possible, but do United really need him?
Unless there was truth in the Moutinho swop, I think Fergie will give Nani another year.
