Manchester United's New Signings

Source: The Busby Babe

Manchester United's early swoop for two of the game’s brightest talents along with the acquisition of a proven performer in Hargreaves would have really put the rest of Europe’s major football clubs on the back foot.

Ferguson’s ability to spot the future stars of the game has been a decisive factor in the prolonged dominance that United has had over the last decade. It started with the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, continued with Ronaldo and Rooney and has reached a new level with the likes of Nani and Anderson.

Nani and Anderson were on the radar of many of the big clubs in Europe, namely Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea. They are going to be the next super stars of world soccer and in many pundits eyes, including mine, will surpass the likes of Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. This is a major statement, but these two at their tender young age have already done enough to suggest that they can do this.


Anderson the 19 year old Brazilian was one of FC Porto’s main players this year. His game against Arsenal in the Champions League was nothing short of superb, his flair on the ball coupled with his crisp passing and deadly shots on goal were simply mouth watering and enough for him to gain praise from Arsene Wenger, one of the hardest managers to please in world football. This form continued through out the season and it was only a matter of time before the big clubs of Europe came knocking on his door. Thankfully for us United fans, we got their first. His flair, skill, talent and Brazilian-ness is sure to add another dimension to the United team and with the guidance of one of the best managers in the world along with superstars like Ronaldo, Scholes and Giggs, he is sure to blossom even further and become on of the greats of the game.

If Anderson has got flair, then there would be no word to describe Nani. His use of the ball is absolutely sublime, his trickery is getting to the Ronaldo standard and he has all the other great attributes that you would expect of a super star midfielder. Coming from Sporting Lisbon, the former club of Ronaldo, the 21 year old Nani is sure to delight United fans just the way Ronaldo has done.

The scary thought for oppositions clubs is that these two are still only young at 19 and 21 and will be given some time to develop under the guidance of the pros that current occupy United’s midfield. People often talk about Barcelona’s forward structure with the likes of Ronaldinho, Messi and Eto'o when he was playing well, but in a few years time it will be Manchester United with a midfield comprising of Ronaldo, Hargreaves, Anderson and Nani, with the likes of Carrick to fill in whenever needed.

Things are good at United at the moment, but mark my word, they are only going to get better.

Finally one of you writes about soccer...and an interesting article too. Although Ronaldinho is one of the greatest, he will eventually be past his prime, making way for newcomers to shine on the world stage.
Back to the new recruits, who cost a total of about 50million pounds!! United have stocked up their defence and midfield so the next step would be to look at a possible striker. Rumour has it that's not the end of Fergie's spending spree. Samuel Eto'o, Dimitar Berbatov and Fernando Torres are all players of interest...with sizeable fees! Ferguson would need to look at selling current players in order to add players of such high caliber to the squad...Gabriele Heinze might be next to go with Barcelona and Real Madrid both vying for him.
It's going to be an interesting summer for United but it's definitely a mighty start to the next season.

Top effort X, good prediction. Although, I had predicted at the start of the just concluded season that we were a sure thing for the treble. We all know what happened, but this season provided the clearest sign that another treble and total domination of Europe is just around the corner.

SS,
I really hope we see Eto'o in Man U colours next season, or soon. The guy is an absolute gun, and not just on Fifa 07. :>

Good summary of the other prospects on Fergie's list, we might just follow up on them in the near future.

As an aside, good to see you taking part on this forum. :>


Huz,
You need to start an award for the most controversial DC Sports writers. I'm sure we'll take it out without too much trouble. :>

Word has just got to me that Heinze if he moves could be going to Juventus, lets not forget that they are back in the Serie A and will be looking for some big signings, they had already shown interest in Heinze during the January transfer window.

I agree everything you said made so much sense to me.I think over time Anderson and Nani will be uniteds best players for sure and obviously Tevez too and Hargreaves and maybe their new signing that african chap. He scored an amazing goal in the African cup of nations. Anyway peace out
