Darren Fletcher has done well for Manchester United and he probably still has a job to do for us, but for his career’s sake and for the sake of the younger players at Manchester United it might be time for him to leave.
I don’t think SAF would part with Fletcher just yet though – the gaffer has a habit of hanging on to players he likes for a season too long, and Fletch could stay on this season and then be forced to leave through a stiffling lack of first-team opportunities after that.
In any case, there are rumours that clubs are sniffing around Manchester United’s front door in case Fletcher is available for a transfer and if Ferguson plays it right, United could not only make a few bucks off this deal but also help Fletcher’s career on.
Sunderland need a central midfielder, Manchester City are looking for one but are unlikely to sign a United player, Newcastle are reported to be interested but they already have enough in midfield (unless they want him to play right-back, which is a bit stupid) and Tottenham need a central midfielder as well but Fletcher is probably not what they have in mind when they dream about the Champions League.
Anyone else that you think would be interested in Fletcher in the Premier League (don’t see him moving to the SPL at this point)?
And while we’re at it, do you think Fletcher should stay or move on for regular football?
