Just heard on the BBC WS, that Lens officials have not yet responded to
the increased bid of  5 million pounds, and that United officials have
insisted that this is their final bid.

From: Mike Keeley Subject: United link to Yugoslav keeper; Ole in demand Man United linked to Yugoslav keeper Copyright 1998 Nando.net Copyright 1998 Agence France-Presse BELGRADE (May 20, 1998 - 10:26 EDT) - English Premiership runner-up Manchester United has made an approach for Yugoslavia's World Cup goalkeeper Ivica Kralj, the Sport daily said Wednesday. Man United manager Alex Fergusson was expected to run the rule over the Partizan Belgrade keeper when Yugoslavia plays Nigeria in a World Cup warm-up match on May 29. ========= Man. United's Solskjaer in demand LONDON (May 20, 1998 - 10:56 EDT) - Manchester United are determined to hold on to Norwegian striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is wanted by either Valencia or Atletico Madrid of Spain. Solskjaer, training with Norway's World Cup squad in Oslo, signed a seven- year contract only last year which ties him to United until 2004, and he says he is happy to stay at Old Trafford. Chairman Martin Edwards says United want to keep him and that they have not heard from either Spanish side. "We see his future at Old Trafford," Edwards said. "We've not had any contact from the two clubs mentioned and I can only assume that it is speculation." The 25-year-old took the Premiership by storm in his first season in England in 1996-97 when he scored 19 goals to finish as United's top marksman. Injuries dogged him for part of the campaign which has just finished, but he still managed to score nine times. Solskjaer cost United 1.5 million pounds when they bought him from Norwegian side Molde in July 1996.

United appear to have failed in their last-gasp 5 million bid to sign Cameroon midfielder Marc-Vivien Foe from Lens, after the French champions kept the club waiting on a final deadline decision. United were hoping to tie a deal up quickly after Alex Ferguson watched him in action at the end of the season, but chairman Martin Edwards is not confident the deal will come off. Edwards said: "We will not be improving our offer. I doubt now that we will be able to proceed with Foe's transfer." Italian striker snub ? French media reports on Wednesday claim Paris Saint Germain striker Marco Simone had been in contact with United before signing a one year extension to his contract in the French capital. The 29-year-old former AC Milan striker had spoken to representatives of the Reds, Parma and his old club but opted to remain in Paris where he enjoys the lifestyle. Meanwhile, Gabriel Batistuta was in action for Argentina again overnight where he scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Chile. The striker, however, travelled to the game in a private jet owned by Parmalat - the sponsors of Serie A's Parma - increasing speculation that the Fiorentina ace is on his way there. Solskjaer swap link The rest of the British media has caught up with TEAMtalk over the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Spanish interest stories, now suggesting United would be willing to do a swap deal with Valencia for Ariel Ortega. The Argentinian is known to be at odds with his coach in Spain but United club officials have denied there has been any contact between the clubs, or Atletico Madrid, over Solskjaer. Alex Ferguson, on holiday this week, wants to tie up another major signing before he jets off to the World Cup finals although it is unlikely Ortega's situation can be resolved before then. Solskjaer does not want to leave Old Trafford and club officials have strenuously denied the speculation which has emerged. Yorke linked again Dwight Yorke has again been linked to United in the morning newspapers - but the 12 million price-tag quoted remains unrealistic. The Trinidad and Tobago internatuional was the subject of an enquiry from Old Trafford last summer, sparking widespread speculation. Despite a proven track record in this country, fans will prefer the club to go all out for Gabriel Batistuta rather than settle for Yorke. Cantona farewell fears Fears are growing about Eric Cantona's farewell appearance at Old Trafford. The Frenchman was due back in February when he planned to bring a European All-star side to play in a testimonial game to raise cash for the Munich disaster fund. Eric: farewell fears The showpiece clash was cancelled back in February because of United's involvement in the FA Cup fifth round replay and then further complicated by Cantona's filming trip to Mexico. The club are still keen to stage the match and coincide it with Eric's return but the prospects took another turn for the worse when United were booked in for the Charity Shield clash against Arsenal in August.

As an ex Durbanite myself its great to hear about another Durbanite being successful with his trials at OT. Any other South African included.:) My son will enjoy hearing about other South Africans getting a trial at OT, he is only 11 right now but a huge Manchester United fan and he would love to go for trials when he's older, can't afford to send him though as his Mom won't let me send her son to England alone ;) He plays his heart out every week for his Under 12 Premier side. Can play left/right back, sweeper and midfield.
