Sunderland’s Moyes To Raid His Former Club
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on August 1, 2016
Recently joined Sunderland boss, David Moyes, is expected to act quickly in the transfer market after just over 1 week of settling in to his new surroundings.
Recent reports have found he has an interest in attracting members of his old club to Sunderland. One of these being his personal favourite, Marrouane Fellaini.
Moyes brought the Belgium to Manchester United after leaving long-term employers, Everton. The fee being around 24 million pounds.
He’s had a less than stellar career at the Red Devils so far, with many fans saying they’d be happy to see the back of him. With David Moyes and Sunderland interested, they could yet see that happen. Albeit for a lot less of his original transfer fee.
In his first press conference, the new Sundeland boss said there was some interest in working with him again. Saying he has made bids for two players, with one in advanced stages.
Could Fellaini be on the move to Wearside?
The other player linked, who is suspected to be the second player in that bid list, is Adnan Januzaj, another Belgium.
The youngster made his first appearance and his first mark of quality in the Premier League against Sunderland, scoring 2 fantastic goals, in a 2-1 win at the Stadium Of Light.
He could make a return to that stadium and the manager who helped his form really kick off, and look to re-kindle his fire, which has since almost been extinguished after an unsuccessful loan to Borussia Dortmund.
Reports have been stating it would most likely be a loan move. However, with Jose Mourinho coming in, and a whole lot more quality coming with him, Sunderland could nick a permanent deal for the young attacking midfielder who seems out-of-favour.
TuttoMercatoWeb have been the latest to report on Januzaj, saying that he’s very close to a permanent deal with Sunderland. He could be the one in the ‘advanced stages’.
There has also been whispers of a third, but no real solid reports. Will Keane could be the third player to join David Moyes at Sunderland.
Most likely be it a loan move, the Black Cats need another striker to back -up ageing Defoe, as decent striking targets for a decent price have become all but non-existent in this new-found era of money.
Sunderland need players, and it’s becoming very late in the pre-season to not make very quick movements in the transfer markets, considering they haven’t yet bought anyone.
Players need to be obtained, the club only has 16 first team players, with up to 4 players missing the first game.
Time to get a move-on, David.
