Patrice Evra has spoken of his bromance with former Manchester United team-mate Ji Sung Park. The left-back has revealed he hasn't been able to settle down with a new roommate for away trips since his South Korean buddy departed for QPR last summer. He told the United's official website: "I know a lot of people [.
Queens Park Rangers are on the verge of landing midfielder Esteban Granero after agreeing a
transfer fee with Real Madrid earlier today.
Granero, 25, still needs to agree personal terms and pass a medical at Loftus Road before
completing the switch but given the limited opportunities the Spaniard has had in Madrid, the move
is very likely to be completed before the transfer window shuts.

Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has paid a glowing tribute to outgoing winger Ji-Sung Park,
explaining that the Red Devils will truly miss the new QPR signing.
Ferdinand has played alongside Park during one of United's most successful eras in recent years
and in addition to the South Korea international's demeanor as a "selfless" teammate, Rio believes
that his upbeat attitude was a major asset for the club too.
Following his move to QPR, Ji-Sung Park has spoken with fondness about his time at Manchester
"My time at United will last in my heart for the rest of my life," he told the official
site. "It's been a great privilege to be part of such a great team, to have won so much and to
have played with special teammates and for the greatest manager in the game.
In what could be a briliant piece of business by QPR manager Mark Hughes, it looks as if Man
UnitedÂ´s Ji Sung Park will be heading to the London team in their quest to push up the Premier
League table come the 2012/2013 season.
Park has been a very faithful servant of United, featuring in many of their big games, putting
in some ever reliable performances.

Ian Cooper/London 24 - QPR Q and A: Chief executive on transfers, Hughes, Green and the
Phil Beard answers questions on Rangers' summer of spending, and tells London24 that the focus must
now be on developing the club's own youth policy
Q: With the transfer window now closed, do you feel that QPR have done good business?
Loftus Road phones and faxes have been plenty busy this transfer deadline as Esteban Granero
becomes another victim of Real Madrid's proud cantera system, a homegrown lifeline replenishing the
club with talent before they went Galactico.
QPR show extreme ambition with transer window activity - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
QPR escaped Premier League relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, securing their
top-flight status on the last day of the campaign despite losing 3-2 to Manchester City. The club's
owner Tony Fernandes is obviously keen to avoid such a nail-biting finale to 2012-13, with a very
busy transfer window heralding a number of new players for the Loftus Road outfit.
The plundering of Arsenal's roster by Europe's top teams continued on Saturday as the Gunners
agreed with FC Barcelona on aÂ Â£15 millionÂ to transfer midfielder Alex Song.
Song joins Robin Van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri as top Arsenal stars to leave the
Gunners in the past two summers, though the transfer fees acquired in those deals have left Arsenal
with a sizeable amount of transfer revenue to work with for the second straight summer.

Today's confirmation that Park Ji-Sung has agreed a move from Manchester United to Queens Park

footballer who often was Manchester United's trump card...

elsewhere _________________________________________________________________________________ NEW QPR STADIUM
QPR on Monday are announcing their new Stadium Plans somewhere in West London.
Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung believes that the players that surround him at Old
Trafford form the "biggest club in the world".
Park, 31, arrived at United in 2005 and having enjoyed four Premier League medals, three Carling
Cup trophies, and a Champions League title with some of the players he once only dreamed of playing
with, he has paid a glowing tribute to the global stature of the Red Devils.
Manchester United have announced the team's squad numbers for the 2012-13 campaign. New signings
Robin van Persie gets to wear #20, Shinji Kagawa #26 and Nick Powell #25 on their Manchester United
shirts. Antonio Valencia has moved into the famed #7 jersey vacated by Michael Owen while Anders
Lindegaard replaces Ji-sung Park at #13.
When Queens Park Rangers' eager communications department described new signing Park Ji-Sung as
a "global phenomenon" it was easy to mock. After all, a quick Google search of the phrase mentions
the decline of the honey bee but little of the similarly busy Korean midfielder.
And yet, who hasn't at some time got carried away with outrageous optimism about their club's
Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic has praised former teammate and new Manchester United
midfielder Shinji Kagawa for taking a step forward in his career.
Subotic saw the 23-year old Kagawa quickly transform into a difference-maker during last year's
league and cup double in Dortmund, and is confident that the Japan international can have a similar
impact in the English top flight.
"Defend, defend ... defend, defend, defend," the Manchester United fans cry in unison, as
the opposition launch a counter-attack, outnumbering the United defence by six to one. This is a
re-working of theÂ elaborateÂ "attack, attack, attack" chant that so often boomed out of the stands
in the seasons before, now a humorous, yet slightly concerned response to the signings of Shinji
Kagawa, some Chilean bloke and Robin van Persie from Arsenal.
