Manchester United are ready to allow a bidding war to ensue for their current midfielder Darron Gibson who has not progressed as well as the Old Trafford side would have liked and it seems there will be numerous clubs interested in the 23 year old’s signature.
Both Everton and Sunderland seem keen on Gibson and with Manchester United having dealt with the likes of Steve Bruce and David Moyes on quite a few occasions it looks as though those two clubs would be favourites to land him. Gibson himself has also suggested recently that he would like to work under former United centre-back Bruce should he be informed that he will not be playing more first team football than he did in the 2010/2011 campaign.
Gibson had been seen as the next Paul Scholes at one stage with the Irishman able to unleash a vicious shot from distance however the last 12 months has seen Gibson fail to make the grade and United are ready to allow the highest bidding team win the chase with Sunderland the most likely, due to the Stadium of Light side having just accrued £20m from Liverpool for Jordan Henderson.
However Everton also remain keen on Gibson although Moyes will know the Toffees will not be able to compete with the likes of Sunderland with regards to a transfer fee. Other sides are also going to be interested in the midfielder with Newcastle United and Aston Villa apparently monitoring the situation closely.
Last week saw reports of United possibly allowing the likes of Wes Brown and John O’Shea leave with Gibson however our source has now revealed that neither of those two players shall be on their way this summer, but any bidding for Darron Gibson will apparently begin at around the £6m mark.
