The hardest man in all the town could soon be on his way to the Reebok according to the Manchester Evening News.
The M.E.N notes: “Wes Brown could kick-start a transfer merry-go-round which would help City land Bolton’s England defender Gary Cahill!
“Sunderland have been in pole position to lure the 31-year-old United defender to the Stadium of Light.
“But £5m-rated Mancunian Brown is reluctant to uproot his family from Cheshire to Wearside and would find a switch to Bolton more favourable.
“M.E.N. Sport understands Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is close to giving up hope of signing Brown, whose 13-year Old Trafford first-team career petered out this season following an alleged bust-up with Sir Alex Ferguson.
“That has alerted Bolton boss Owen Coyle, and if he can land Brown it will pave the way for Cahill to leave, with several clubs joining City in the race for the defender.”
I’d actually welcome Brown moving to Bolton, not because I don’t rate him or feel he’s not up to the job at Old Trafford, simply due to the fact it pains me to see such a loyal servant hardly getting a chance anymore.
Brown didn’t even qualify for a Premier League winner’s medal last season, due to lack of games and even when the likes of Rafael, John O’Shea and Rio Ferdinand are all injured he still struggles to get a game.
Seeing a player I’ve loved for the past 13 years, turning out for the reserves after sacrificing his England career to focus on his United one, is a sad affair.
I wish Wes all the best -funny how it feels appropriate using his first name, even though I don’t know him- and am sure where ever he goes, he’ll be putting attackers in the stands just as he’s done for United over the years.
Altogether now. “he’s big he’s bad he’s Wesley Brown….”
