Man Utd's Wayne Rooney fluffs his lines as Swansea go back to basics

ESPN FC's Craig Burley dissects Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Swansea City, and notes United's glaring need for transfer reinforcements.
Swansea City Manager Garry Monk was very pleased with his team's performance in a 2-1 home win against Manchester United.

Garry Monk outfoxed Louis van Gaal once again as his switch of formation helped Bafetimbi Gomis and Andre Ayew overturn Juan Mata's opener in Swansea's 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday.

The Swansea boss changed from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-1-2 early in the second half, prompting a short spell that Van Gaal later claimed cost United the game. "It is a big lesson for us," the Dutchman said. "We have to adapt much more quickly than we have done."

David De Gea's Manchester United future unknown to Louis van Gaal

ESPN FC's Craig Burley dissects Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Swansea City, and notes United's glaring need for transfer reinforcements.
Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata shared his feelings after his squad lost 2-1 against Swansea City.

Louis van Gaal has said he is unsure if David De Gea will still be a Manchester United player when the La Liga transfer window shuts on Monday.

De Gea, 24, has been linked to Real Madrid all summer long and Van Gaal, who omitted the goalkeeper from the United squad for their first six games of the season amid concerns about his state of mind, claimed to be in the dark if the club's reigning Player of the Year will still be at his disposal after the international break.

Indeed, the United manager...

Bayern, Bundesliga can't match Premier League cash - Wolfsburg chief

The 24-year old Belgium midfielder joins Manchester City from the german side of Wolfsburg for a reported £54m.

Bundesliga clubs, including German giants and reigning champions Bayern Munich, have been powerless to compete with the Premier League, according to Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn.

Winterkorn, 68, has been CEO at the German car manufacturer since 2007 and has interests in VW-owned Wolfsburg, while he also has a seat on Bayern's supervisory board.

This weekend, Wolfsburg midfielder Kevin De Bruyne joined Manchester City for around €75 million, reportedly earning him up to €20m per year,...

Benzema snubs Arsenal but Wenger must react and land a striker

The ESPN FC crew debate whether Edinson Cavani would fit in at Arsenal amid renewed transfer speculation.

It was kind of Theo Walcott to make the point so eloquently and equally kind of Olivier Giroud to really drive it home. If nothing else, Arsenal's 1-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday proved beyond any reasonable doubt that Arsene Wenger must use what little time he has remaining in the transfer window to obtain a new striker, if it is not too late already.

It wasn't the strikers' glaring misses which confirmed the suspicions of most Arsenal watchers regarding the need for improvement up front, but...

Is Kevin De Bruyne the final piece of the puzzle for Manchester City?

The 24-year old Belgium midfielder joins Manchester City from the german side of Wolfsburg for a reported £54m.

Spending £54 million on Wolfsburg's Kevin De Bruyne is small change for Manchester City's owners and -- although he arrives with an abundance of talent and a raft of recommendations from across the Bundesliga -- his move to the Etihad raises a few pertinent questions.

Firstly, what will happen to Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas? The Frenchman in particular is likely to see his place in jeopardy following the Belgian's arrival, whose move to Manchester was the culmination of months of transfer talk,...
