UNITED IN TALKS OVER BRADY
Championship side Hull city have opened the transfer talks with Manchester United over the future of winger Robbie Brady. The future of Robbie Brady has come under intense speculation recently after the winger has been performing excellently at the KC Stadium.
However, caretaker manager Nick Barmby has already said that the future of the winger does not remain within the club and that it will depend upon the decisions of a number of other people. Now they have taken the first step by opening talks with his parent club at Manchester United over the possibility of a potential permanent move.
Hull City have expressed concerns that a number of other clubs like Premiership new-boys Norwich City could come in for the winger, who has excelled in the Championship of late. The loan spell for the 19-year-old will come to an end at the end of this season. Clubs like Manchester City and Sunderland have been linked with the youngster in the past, but Hull city are keen to make the youngster as a part of their future. Due to impressive performances the season, Hull city are very close towards securing an automatic promotion spot. Only clubs like Middlesbrough, West Ham and Southampton are ahead of Hull City in the Championship table.
Manchester United have had a miserable season so far, crashing out of the Champions League and struggling to set fire to the Premiership. That said, they remain one of the favourites on the Europa League betting exchanges, and trail by just three points in the league. Brady was always picked as one for the future at United, but with Sir Alex keen to bring in new faces in the January transfer window, he might be willing to accept some cash up-front from Hull for Brady.
In recent weeks Brady has fallen even firther down the pecking order at Old trafford, with Paul Scholes opting to return to first team football after getting bored in retirement - something that no-one would have put a Man Utd bet on at the start of the season.
"We've been in dialogue with Manchester United over Robbie and we obviously want to do something and keep him at the club. But the thing is when you do well when you're out on loan there's obviously other clubs that will be alerted, and Manchester United can also call him back. That's not our decision because ultimately he's not our player, but we keep talking to Man United all the time," Barmby told the Mail. Robbie Brady has been out with a suspension, but he will return to the first-team squad for the match against Millwall.
