Taking the Mik?

October 1st, 2012

Who is this Manchester United old boy training with the Red Devils on Monday morning? Is Sir Alex Ferguson planning on bolstering his leaky defense with a veteran of almost 250 appearances in a red shirt?

Apparently not. However, observers could be forgiven for double-taking when Mikael Silvestre trotted out to practise with United at Carrington ahead of their Champions League trip to Cluj on Tuesday. The Frenchman is a free agent and training with his former side to keep in shape. But with United’s center-halves dropping like flies, a short-term return would not represent the strangest deal in the Premier League this season.
