Sinclair did not travel with Roberto Mancini's squad to face his former club Swansea after being taken ill during training on Friday but is understood to be in a comfortable condition.

He moved to Manchester from the Liberty Stadium last summer but has made only two Premier League starts.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
