Perhaps United's Nemanja Vidic will be the most sought after defender from Premier League this season with likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and AC Milan expressing interests in Manchester United's no-nonsense defender.
His superb performances for the Red Devils' has earned him serious attention from top European clubs and he is likely to be the subject of a massive bidding war among his suitors.
Although Vidic has quashed all rumours of his possible exit from Old Trafford this summer yet some mouth watering bids and lucrative offers may force him and his club a re-think.
Reports suggest that Real Madrid are ready to swap their out-of-favor striker Karim Benzema in exchange for the Serb.
As Ferguson looks to bring in a new strike-partner for Rooney such an offer may seem a good bargain for him.
It has been in the news recently that Italian giants Juventus are ready to offer Manchester United their talisman goalie Gianluigi Buffon along with cash to land themselves Nemanja Vidic.
The Buffon-deal may solve Ferguson's goalkeeping problems and also help him earn some extra cash.
The San Siro giants AC Milan who are looking to revamp their aging squad next season have reportedly made Vidic their top transfer target this summer and are said to be lining up a over-£20 million bid to secure the services of United's impressive defender.
Although nothing has been confirmed as yet but if United get a good bargain for their Serbian centre-back it may well see Vidic leave United.
But these are mere speculations and nothing can be conformed as yet till the summer transfer window opens.
But one thing is sure. Vidic will be the most in-demand Premier League defenders during the upcoming transfer season.
