if true, move to the front of the list

While Man City has been very vocal with its intent on acquisitions, Sir Alex Ferguson of cross-town Manchester United have taken a strong stance that they will not be making material changes to his championship squad.

However if the Daily Express is correct with one situation in particular, this will raise an extraordinary opportunity that Mark Hughes must act on swifty. This past November Manchester United announced a deal to bring FK Partizan’s brilliant playmaker Zoran Tošić and Serbian international was in the works with additional reports suggesting a further move on the clubs seventeen year-old midfield sensation Adem Ljajić was in the offing. The Daily Express is now reporting the deal to bring in young Mr. Tošić in has how died and opened the door for another club to move in.

Although the Daily Express’ report is not confirmed, if it is true, Man City (and any financially secure club) needs to act on this situation fast and not only look to secure the services of both standouts but attempt to establish a strong relationship with FK Partizan. The Belgrade club is a hot-bed of brilliant young talent (i.e. Nenad Adamović, Ivan Obradović, Marko Jovanović, Ljubomir Fejsa, Aleksandar Miljković) that gets little notice in the media but in time will excel on the international stage.

Updates to follow on this very exciting situation.
