  • Riquelme backs Senna move

    <P class=big>Villarreal playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme has backed Marcos Senna's proposed move to Manchester United.

    The Argentina star, one of the best players on view at the World Cup finals, revealed during the tournament that Sir Alex Ferguson had tabled a sizeable offer for his services.

    With the Yellow Submarines determined to retain their star man, United have looked instead to his industrious team-mate as an option to help solve Ferguson's midfield problems.

    A deal has been set up for some time and progress appears to be being made with regards the switch to Old Trafford.

    "I value it as being very good," Riquelme informed As about the transfer. "Because Marcos has done it right and, when he leaves for a great club like Manchester United, he deserves it for everything he has done here."

    Villarreal have stressed they will be pleased if the South American stays at El Madrigal, but they are willing to let him join The Red Devils if the price is right.
