Loan Deals On The Cards For Kuszczak And Diouf

published :

According to the latest gossip, Tomasz Kuszczak and Mame Diouf are still in line with a move out of Old Trafford this summer, with the loan window due to open this Thursday.

Despite both players being named in Manchester United’s Champions League group-stages squad, there is alot of speculation around that both players will be moving out on loan with view to permanent deals being struck in January.

Kuszczak is being linked with a move to Russian side CSKA Moscow, who are in the Champions League this season after their regular first choice keeper and club captain Igor Akinfeev (who has been linked with a move to United in the past) suffered a knee injury a fortnight ago which could rule the player out for the best part of five to six months.

There are doubts though as to whether CSKA would be interested in the Polish stopper as they did bring in a keeper on loan from Anzhi Makhachkala (yes, the side who signed Samuel Eto’o) recently to cover for Akinfeev and have another keeper on their books already.

Kuszczak is certainly too good a player to play in the reserves and sit in the stands until January, so if someone were to come in for him on-loan it would be great for him, as clearly he must have grown very frustrated at not being out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans this season or being able to secure a move out of the club before now.

As for Diouf, despite having a good pre-season in which he scored three goals (including a double in Paul Scholes’ testimonial against the New York Cosmos) the best thing this season for him is to play games on a regular basis which in all fairness he won’t do at United this season.

There were rumours that Ian Holloway was interested in signing him in a permanent deal for Blackpool at the start of August and a move to anyone in the Championship would be a good opportunity for the forward to prove himself in English football and perhaps increase his price value for the club, if he is to be sold when the transfer-window opens up again in January.
