Ok, it’s certainly not the first time that Victor Wanyama’s name has been mentioned in relation to Manchester United and, if the big lad doesn’t leave Celtic this January, then nor will it be the last.
I dont think it’s a wild exaggeration to say that everybody wants The Big Lad. Sure, it’s an exaggeration – Sussex County Cricket Club don’t want The Big Lad for example – but it’s not a ‘wild’ exaggeration. The Big Lad has certainly drawn covetous glances from many of Europe’s top teams after some hum dinging performances for Celtic this season – not least in the Champions League.
If Tom Huddlestone is ‘The Wardrobe’ then Victor Wanyama could perhaps be ‘The Welsh Dresser’ of The Premier League. A sensational specimen of a man whose inordinately sized frame somehow still allows him to be one of the most athletic and energetic players in any team for which he dons the XXXL shirt.
If you were having a youthful kick about in the park with Victor you would probably go home after ten minutes saying ‘it’s not fair mum. He’s taking the fun out of it. He’s just too big. He wins EVERY second ball mum. HE’S RUINING EVERYTHING!’
Rumours abound that Fergie will buy one more player for Manchester United in the winter window and The Big Lad may be that man. A price tag of £10m wont put The Scot off but, with Fergie seemingly opting for a new tiki-taka style midfield with Cleverley, Kagawa and Carrick, does he really want a Welsh dresser in there too? Well, The Independent reports that Fergie personally scouted The Big Lad in Celtic’s victory over Dundee United on Wednesday.
