Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly pondering a move for Inter Milan’s Ghanaian international Sulley Muntari. 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, and would no doubt welcome a move to Man United, especially if he was guaranteed more of a shot at regular first team football.
Ferguson is looking for new central midfield options after seeing Michael Carrick struggle this season as well as wondering how badly effected Owen Hargreaves is after his lengthy injury lay-off. With Paul Scholes getting nearer to retirement and Anderson being a shadow of the player that first burst onto the scene, Man United could well do with a player like Muntari.
The £19m rated battler is a great distributor of the ball and rarely loses possession and could well be just the kind of player Sir Alex is looking for.
