Ustari middle-fingers Manchester United and Barcelona, Signs With Getafe

Ahmed…I wrote this for you, knowing that you have secretly wanted Oscar Ustari to sign with Manchester United.

Well, it’s probably old news by now, but Oscar Ustari, the super Argentinian goalkeeping prodigy signed with Getafe CF under Michael Laudrup a few days back. It’s a significant period in this young guys development, and the more I look at his goalkeeping ability, the more he reminds me of Casillas (just call it goalkeeping intuition). The young Argentine has shown some great presence in goal over a pretty well pronounced career.

Ustari’s 6 year deal will really bolster his ability in the La Liga, and I feel that his goalkeeping skills will truly become uncanny over the coming few seasons (he has brilliant presence).

Overall, it is a better move for the young guy than signing with Manchester United, where I feel he would have had to have fought hard to pry open his chance to prove his worth against Van der Saar. Here is a video preview of a goalkeeper I feel will be one of the best in the coming few years.

Ed’s Note: So what do you guys think? Should Manchester United have moved for Oscar Ustari or are Manchester United’s current crop of young keepers (Foster and Kuszczak) better than Ustari? Or should Barca have snapped him up as a long-term replacement for Valdes?

Discuss away.
