Liverpool and Man United target defender

March 23, 2011 | by | 1 Comment

Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne could be a summer target for Manchester United and Liverpool.

The Irish international is in the bad books at Villa Park following two embarrassing off-the-field incidents.

He was recently fined two weeks wages for his drunken antics on a recent training camp and nearly came to blows with assistant manager Gary McAllister last year in an argument over tactics.

With the tough-tackling former Man City man expected to be shown the door this summer, his talent is likely to catch the eye of United and Liverpool who will be looking to bolster their defences.

Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is having to contend with the perennially crocked Rio Ferdinand while Nemanja Vidic tends to miss a number of matches each season through injury and suspension.

It’s a similar situation across the M62 at Anfield with Jamie Carragher no longer his indestructible self and Daniel Agger a regular in the treatment room.

Greek defender Soto Kyrgiakos is a risky selection choice owing to his lack of pace and susceptibility to making rash challenges.

The addition of the experienced Dunne to either defences could be a shrewd choice for Dalglish or Ferguson with the 31-year-old a proven top-class centre-back.
