Manchester United to swoop for Ghana's Sulley Muntari

Published on: 19 May 2010

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is attemping a cheeky move to bring Ghanaian international Sulley Muntari to Old Trafford, according to the English press.

Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly pondering a move for Inter Milan’s Ghanaian international Sulley Muntari to boost his squad ahead of next season.

The Manchester United boss believes that uncertainty over Jose Mourinho’s future at the San Siro could help the Premier League club in their attempts in a proposed swoop for the former Portsmouth man.

The 25 year old central midfielder is by no means a first team regular at the Serie A title winners having made just 22 starts out of a possible 53.

He would no doubt welcome a move to Man United, especially if he was guaranteed more of a shot at regular first team football.

    I hope this worked out for Muntari. But Sulley has to pick up his game and improve on self desciplne and, the sky would be his limit. Good luck dan'uwa

    Ghanasoccernet, can you make available credits to the news you put here? If you are reporting from another source please credit it to the source. This sounds quite doubtful.

    This is good news. I believe Sulley's abilities and style of play will make a big difference in the strength of the midfield of Man U. I have a little doubt however - I don't know Man U. to be very enthusiastic about African players, and I don't know why they should sommersault this time because of Sulley.

    I dont believe this is true,wish it was for sulley's sake but this is being reported by a newspaper here(england) just to sell papers,nobody takes them seriously. It's not even being reported on skysports news.

    every1 know that sir alex does not fancy the African players, so firstly that completely rules out this BOGUS NEWS.

    We've been hearing this for the past four years and i agree with Man T that you should double check or at least credit your source.

    THIS IS THE BIGGEST LIE I HAVE READ ON THIS NETWORK.SULLEYS STYLE OF PLAY IS SOO DIFFERENT THAT HE CANNOT FIT INTO A MANCHESTER UNITED TEAM.EVEN IF IT IS TRUE AND I WERE SULLEY I WOULDNT TAKE THIS CHANCE BECAUSE IT MAY END MY CARRER. IF GHANASOCCERNET CANNOT SUBSTANTIATE THIS STORY I SUGGEST WE MAKE A LITTLE PROTEST TO SHOW THEM THAT WE ARE NOT SOO IGNORANT OF THE GAME.

    people should saying that sir Alex does not fancy African players,he is now having an African player in his team and has also had some in the past but they dont justify theirselfs well.if the swoop for sulley is true which i doubt then sulley must work hard in order to be able to gain a first team place.ghanasoccernet please i want to double check so what is the source since i have not seen it at man utd web site.

    I have just read through the link papa0078 provided and i think the story is true.But am not certain about it yet,if the deal goes through i wont be surprised at all cuz Muntari plays with a lot of flair and the EPL suits his type of play.Despite the fact that he's been poor this season for the Nerazzuri (Inter Milan).It will be great if Muntari joins my favorite club United,Man u 4life.

    Well the source is from ManU's fanzone website spot. Of course its a gossip and any fan can say whatever he likes but I can assure you Sulley Muntari himself knows he cannot stand the scrutiny and discipline required by Sir AF. It will forever remain a gossip because he is not up to the standards of ManU. Pure and simple.
  • TheBroker

    Even if he is given to ManU for free and they add plea money Sir AF will not take him.

    I did not imply earlier that Sulley is not good for Man U. I only wanted the source of that info. However Sulley is capable of being in Man utd. Despite his track record. can u believe the Fergie wants to buy Balotelli? Balo and Sulley who is more discipline. Cantona was even part of Man U's squad. Was he not ousted from the French team because of indiscipline. Going on to have a fight with a fan? Can u imagine Sulley doing that? Sulley is good, for that i am sure otherwise Inter will not continue paying about $70,000 a week for him. The problem is that soccernet only has to substantiate some of these stories with the sources so that we their loyal readers will not be dessuaded from following their news. Thanks
