Manchester United have reportedly allowed Gaby Heinze to fly to Madrid to discuss terms with Bernabeu officials.

The player himself is quoted as saying ‘if a good offer comes in, I’m sure United will let me go.’ Of course, you never know what’s the truth in these news but it’s very widely reported now.

I’d be sad to see him go, for we all remember his excellent first season at the club where he impressed everyone. However, he hasn’t been the same since recovering from that horrible cruciate injury. His attitude and determination are still exemplary but lost a yard of pace and sometimes looked out of his depth.

I think it’d be better to let Silvestre go and keep Heinze as a normal, calm summer preparation, without a World Cup could do wonders with him. But if he leaves, my favourite Spanish team will be previously hated Real Madrid. With Becks, Ruud and Gaby there it’d be fantastic to meet them in next year’s Champions League final.
