Daily Mirror says today that United are going to buy Johnny Heitinga from Ajax in the January transfer window. He's a very good defender but I believe he'll be cup tied for Europe, considering Ajax were in the Champions League Qualifying Rounds and are now in the UEFA Cup.

Not too bothered about the Mascherano deal now that Gill has said that Ferguson watched him for several games and decided that we didn't need him. If we can't trust the manager's opinion then what can we trust :p:

Heitinga can also play defensive midfeild though. I'd love it if we signed him :yy:

John Heitinga would be cheaper if cup-tied. While I believe we have enough central defenders, I think such a signing would make use of his ability in midfield and as cover in right back. But I think it's a BS rumour.

I don't understand the story behind that, from what I gathered, some club got relegated for fielding an ineligble player so how does that affect Porto and Benfica? :confused:

Like someone said before, he's very versatile and can play as a defensive midfielder if we have problems with injuries. He's a great defender though, I remember writing about him on the United website during Euro 2004 and they were asking which players you recommended.

i don't think utd need him. We dont need someone who is versatile we need a good midfielder. the way heitinga is described reminds me of O'shea.
