Ignacio Scocco: Knows of Sunderland's interest

Scocco has been on loan in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys from Al Ain, and he has been in sensational form - finishing the season with 27 goals in 36 games.

Scocco, though, looks set to shun interest from Europe - including from Sunderland, and is set to extend his stay with Newell's.

"Sunderland are interested in Scocco, but they know Nacho's claims," said Scocco's agent Fabian Soldini.

"Nacho thinks that if he has to leave Newell's, where he is happy, he is going to do so to play in the Champions League.

"If there is not anything that is interesting, Ignacio will stay until the end of the year at the club (Newell's)."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
