Another Day, Another Player!

Ever since Man United announced that they have accepted an £80 million offer for Cristiano Ronaldo, a different player has been linked with a move to Old Trafford each day.

Today it is Nilmar Honorato da Silva's turn to be linked with a move to Man United. The Daily Mirror are saying that Man United are set to bid £20 million for the 24-year-old.
