If you’re tired of looking up every tiny bit of ridiculous speculation, you’re at the best place, for I’ve tried to round them up for you.

Of course, I’ve devoted a whole article to Owen Hargreaves so let’s proceed to more urgent issues.

First, Torres arrives at Old Trafford in February for a trial. You wonder why it ain’t a headline in the Sun? Well, this is not that Torres, this kid is from Panama and he’s said to be a tremendous talent. Yeah, we’ll see.

Sir Alex clearly stated he would not buy any strikers in January but it does not disturb the tabloids who keep on linking United with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar of Ajax and Miroslav Klose of Werder Bremen.

Southampton’s Gareth Bale could be added to the club’s army of left-backs, according to several sources. United have to face competition from Arsenal if they are to sign the teenager.

Manuel Fernandes of Portsmouth is another player for whom United and Arsenal could battle it out, especially after ‘Arry Redknapp confirmed he would not sign the midfielder on a permanent basis from Benfica. Many people feel he would be a great addition but I’m not convinced to be honest.

And finally, the magically named Dieudonne Mbokani of Anderlecht stated he would love to play for a club like Barcelona and Manchester United. An owner of such a name, you would not expect him to be some sort of down-to-earth person but he reckons he needs to do considerable amount of hard work before he could realize his dreams. Keep on, lad.
