Abdisalam Ibrahim: Norway Under-21 international

Norway Under-21 international midfielder Ibrahim is understood to have been told that he can leave the Etihad Stadium in January.

The talented 22-year-old has been on loan at Norwegian outfit Stromsgodset since last year and with one game left in the current Tippeligaen season, Ibrahim has helped the club to the brink of their first domestic title in 43 years.

Despite interest from rival Premier League sides and other clubs across Europe, he might yet be tempted to stay at the Drammen outfit when his loan contract expires at the end of the season.

"I will have a meeting with (Manchester) City in two or three weeks and then we will probably hear more.

"He is on loan with us until the end of the year, but we would like to keep him."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

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.
