Huntelaar? Torres? Hargreaves? No way! Igor Mitreski knows who we need: himself. A United scout was reportedly in the crowd to watch the performance of Cottbus’ Macedonian defender against Hertha Berlin.

‘I know Manchester United watched me and even (newspaper) ‘Bild’ has written about their interest,’ Mitreski said.

‘I did well and they confirmed their interest after the match. It’s my dream to play in the Premiership.’

I don’t know where this rumour came from. But I wonder if anyone bothered to tell him how many defenders we have in the squad. Jonny Evans, Phil Bardsley, Gerard Pique are all on loan, why would United sign another defender – who plays for a poor Bundesliga side? Transfer rumours, really.
