Fowler linked with Man Utd

Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler is being linked with a multi-million pound move to Manchester United, according to newspaper reports.

Fowler signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool last season after similar stories involving Arsenal.

United have a history of making shock signings up front, after the capture of Eric Cantona and Andy Cole.

If the reports are correct, a switch by Fowler to Liverpool's bitter rivals would be the most sensational deal yet.


Taibi on the move

Manchester United goalkeeper Massimo Taibi could be on his way back to Italy for the rest of the season.

Taibi has yet to establish himself at Old Trafford since his 4.5m move from Venezia at the start of the season.

But he is determined to have another go at making his mark in England once his form has returned.

Taibi said: "In the next 48 hours I should find out if I can move to a Serie A team until June. But make no mistake, I will return to Manchester.

"This could be the best solution for me. If all goes to plan, I will remain in Italy for six months, playing every week, and when I return I'll be that much stronger."


Gillingham snap up Onuora

Gillingham have signed their former striker Iffy Onuora on loan from Swindon with a view to a permanent move.

He replaces striker Robert Taylor, who left for Manchester City in a 1.5m deal five weeks ago.

Onuora's team-mate Ty Gooden has also signed for the Kent club.
