Man Utd to offer Silvestre in deal for Tottenham's Lennon
tribalfootball.com - February 21, 2006

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to move for Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.
The former Leeds starlet is said to be unsettled in London and keen to return to the Northwest to be closer to family and friends.

The People says Ferguson is lining up a cash-plus-player offer involving Mikael Silvestre to tempt Spurs into parting with Lennon at the end of this season.

Man Utd prepare £5M bid for Tottenham's Lennon
tribalfootball.com - February 23, 2006

Manchester United are ready to offer Tottenham £5 million for winger Aaron Lennon.

The Sun says Lennon's form has caught the eye of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who is keen to inject more pace and width into his team.

Lennon moved to White Hart Lane from Leeds for £1million last July, but has reportedly failed to settle in London - and would jump at the chance of a switch to the North West.

Ferguson is set to make an opening offer of £5million, but with Martin Jol believed to be showing an interest in versatile defender Mikael Silvestre a swap deal could also be in the offing.

Whether Spurs land a Champions League berth for next season could be key to the deal, as Jol would be keen to add Silvestre's European experience to his defence, where Ledley King and Michael Dawson are currently the first-choice centre-backs.

Silvestre :stress: Man Utd should pay us for taking Silvestre. Luckily it's probably just the papers filling time until the summer window.

Ferguson sets Lennon budget
16th Mar 2006

Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly set aside £5 million to capture Spurs winger, Aaron Lennon.

The move is designed to test Spurs resolve for a player they paid only £1 million for just over a year ago and who is reportedly suffering from home sickness and desperate for a move to a more northern club.

Spurs will be desperate to keep Lennon but should they be unable to convince him of the merits of remaining down south then £5 million will help soften the blow of losing one of the country's brightest young talents.

Spurs could also use United's interest in Lennon to leverage their own reported interest in United players, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Mikael Silvestre.

Martin Jol's interest in Van Nistelrooy has been well documented in the last week but the big Dutchman is reportedly also a fan of the versatile Silvestre.
