  • has been advised that he can leave Newcastle on a free transfer today.

    Barton is one of the most underrated midfielders in the EPL, and he is the sort of player United need in midfield. He has many years experience in the league, and more consistent than both Anderson and Carrick.

    True, he is not a world class player. But his record, even at struggling Newcastle, is enough to suggest that he will still provide a good service for our attackers.

    Barton obviously has some behavioural issues. But with probably the only manager in the world who can save his career in his corner. I think United should take a punt on him.
