Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott Could Make Move To United
There are things in football that are able to create the most sizable hoo-ha’s for the most bizarre reasons. One such example is a player moving to a rival club, which is exactly the situation Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott could find himself in.
The City defender will be out of contract this summer, a situation United’s Nemanja Vidic will also share. Unfortunately for Manchester United their defender looks as if he will be leaving the club in the summer, and this will leave United a little light in the central defensive position.
Moyes will need to make some very shrewd purchases
This may force David Moyes to make an astute decision to gain the services of Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott. The urgency in acquiring an experienced defender cannot be ignored, since Patrice Evra and even Rio Ferdinand could be leaving Old Trafford this coming summer. This could leave United with a huge void in their central defensive positions, and it is unlikely that the new manager at Old Trafford will be given the funds to purchase the numerous world class players he so obviously needs.
In Moyes favour is the fact that Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott has played for England, and he would be in the running to be in England’s World Cup squad for Brazil. Therefore, getting him for free is an opportunity that cannot be missed and should be taken.
If Joleon Lescott does end up at Manchester United it could add to the intensity in the derby matches between the two Manchester clubs. And with the two teams much closer in terms of quality and aspiration, a move of this kind could instigate higher levels of passion and even better football when the two meet.
