One Comment to DONE DEAL: Manchester United confirm another transfer

  1. Shame … luved his attitude and loyalty. Not the best footballer on the planet but bloody effective and always going to poach goals. Doesn’t fit in with the new system – these things happen with management changes. Thing is at Real, I really can’t see him dethroning Benzema who is a way more accomplished and talented player. Will go down at Utd as Solskjaer’s successor – but for two things … Ole offered a tad more in general play and unlike Ole he wasn’t content to play every second game !
