Many names — big and small — have been linked with United ahead of the transfer window, which will open next Tuesday. It’s the silly season, though, and most “negotiations” are agents promoting their clients through the media. The latest gossip involved a pair of Guatemalan defenders and a German defender. United does plan to invite additional trialists in the coming weeks, adding to a list of hopefuls that began to mount in May. Defender O’Brian Woodbine, from Jamaica’s national team, has come and gone but remains a signing possibility down the road.
As for Diego Forlan, the Uruguayan superstar who has whet the appetite of desperate DCU supporters, I hear if he ends up in MLS this summer, Toronto FC is primed to sign him. Stay tuned for more details on this developing angle…..
