Football Transfer Do Come Cheap Afterall...

While the giants are sleeping during pre-transfer window in the summer, Numancia midfielder Cedrick Mabwati has signed for Real Betis for a fee of 1.2 euros (approx. SGD$2.01) What can we get here in my country with an amount of $2 nowadays?! Also, Mabwati is tipped to be a hot prospect for future. Hands down, to date this is really a mother of all bargains. So damn lucky, Betis!


Robert Lewandowski has been told by his parent club that he would not be sold to their rival, Bayern Munich. Such drama and intensity in the German league. However Lewi is determined that he will play for Bayern Munich next season. With this piece of news, I doubt he is coming to Manchester United. Anyway I don’t think United would be needing another striker. RVP is still hot favourite to start first eleven for all United upcoming season matches. Like it or not by United fans, Wayne Rooney is still a Manchester United player. I don’t care what others negatives think about Rooney but I hope he’ll stay a United player till he hangs his boots. There are also the likes of the reborn baby-faced assassin from Mexico. Danny Welbeck, this lad is cracking Real Madrid defence like no one have done during the Champions League last season, only to be outdone by a referee’s horrific decision. Well, money speaks in all languages and anything can happen in football. I am not surprise if within weeks R. Lewandowski ends up in Bayern Munich soon..!

Let’s make our way back to Old Trafford (as if….) and we welcome the newest member of Manchester United- Guillermo Varela. A young 20 year old Uruguayan right full back from Penarol. I have never seen him played before but I hope is really good but he will definitely have to compete with Rafael and also his other twin Fabio who has coming back a season long. Isn’t this guy was on trial when Sir Alex Ferguson was still Man United’s boss? As much as I hate to admit it but I seriously think that Ferguson is still overshadowing players purchase and not David Moyes. C’mon Sir Alex, move on already! Let the new boss do his work!!!

Cesc Fabregas would be an excellent addition to any European club. However this particular United target…it won’t happen. Even Fabregas himself has spoken that he will not be joining Manchester United. He has the chance to reunite with his partner RVP. Imagine the formidable force it will become. Still as I have mentioned numerous times before, it has been season in, season out, United midfield looked absolutely vulnerable. Easily exposed and often terrorised by most opponents. The last game of the season against West Bromwich is a perfect example. No matter how well United capitalised the game, West Brom managed to claw back and level the game to 5-5. Even if United were already declared championship with games in hand, they should have played as per normal. Pity those who bought season tickets and those who travel across the world only to watch their favourite team played like that.
