United Trio to Gets Middle Eastern Offers, Sun Says: Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Dubai Offers

Manchester United veterans Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville are all expected to receive lucrative offers to finish their careers in the Middle East, the Sun said.

Giggs, 36, will be offered 200,000 pounds ($318,000) a week, while Scholes and Neville, both 35, may also get similar deals, the Sun said without identifying any clubs.

Fabio Cannavaro, captain of Italy’s 2006 World Cup championship team, moved to Al Ahli last summer for 100,000 pounds a week, tax-free, which equates to 200,000 pounds in the U.K., the Sun said.

Fergie’s Targets

United manager Alex Ferguson has put Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger and Tottenham’s Tom Huddleston at the top of his list as he looks to bolster his midfield, the Daily Star said.

Ferguson has turned to Schweinsteiger, whose contract with Bayern expires after the season, after losing out on Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder and believes he can lure the German to Old Trafford during the January transfer period, the Star said.

Chelsea also has an interest in signing Schweinsteiger to a pre-contract in January, the Daily Mirror said.

Two Games

West Ham manager Avram Grant has two games to save his job as the club sits last in the Premier League, the Daily Star said.

The Hammers have just six points from nine games this season and co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold were less than impressed with last weekend’s home loss to Newcastle, the Star said. Grant wouldn’t be fired if West Ham loses at Arsenal tomorrow but defeat Nov. 6 at Birmingham, which Sullivan and Gold once owned, could end Grant’s tenure, the newspaper said.

New Name for Ewood?

The new owners of Blackburn Rovers may sell the naming rights to the club’s Ewood Park stadium, the Daily Telegraph said.

Venky’s (India) Ltd. expects to complete its 46 million- pound purchase of the club within the next two weeks and is investigating the value of selling the naming rights, the Telegraph said. Blackburn has played at Ewood Park since 1890.

Arsenal Interest

Arsenal is following the progress of Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes, the Daily Mail said.

Howedes, 22, has been a starter at the Bundesliga club for five years and can play both fullback and center-half, the Mail said.
