Manchester United on verge of first summer signing – reports

But keep your wigs on. It’s not a mega bucks move for an imperious midfielder costing £70m. It’s a deal for the little known Uruguayan full back Guillermo Varela. The Daily Mail and Sky, among others, say that the 21 year old is about to fly to England to become David Moyes’ first Manchester United signing. The Penarol player spent time at Old Trafford on trial last season and clearly impressed as United are apparently forking out a million squid for his services.

With Rafael looking as if he will nail down the right back berth for most of the next decade, the left side of the defence still needs work. Patrice Evra has been a Manchester Unired titan but, at 32, his time is sadly coming to an end. Alex Buttner has showed glimpses of exciting form going forward but, if I were a gambling man I’d say that he won’t make the grade as the defensive side of his game leaves a lot to be desired.

Meanwhile soccersweep still holds out hope for Rafa’s twin Fabio but he has a long way to go to be considered a regular in this Manchester United team. So it’s clear that more cover is needed for the full-back areas and Valera will join the reserve team in an effort to make his mark at Manchester United. We wish him all the best.

Manchester United fans, is more investment needed in the defence or should Mr. Moyes be spending his transfer kitty on other areas of the team?

    We need very experienced players who would have immediate impact than young ones. Also we need best mildfielders like Gundogan (B.Dortmund), Fabregas & Alcantara (Barcelona) and Strootman (PSV). Also we need the likes of R.Lewandowski or Ronaldo but not both especially the Polish. We also need wings coz Valencia and A.Young have lost their fitness. We need the liker of Ezequiel Garay this summer. Thnx!
