January 24, 2014, remarked the significant transfer record for a player by Manchester United.
The English Champions suffered a bad run in the first half of the season, losing the momentum of victories.The end of 26 years of reign, by the great Sir Alex, and the void left by the greatest red, Paul Scholes, had kept the reds stumble with the start of the 2013/14 season forcing the successor, David Moyes to spend in January.
Needless to say, media is a warehouse of speculations. Various players being linked with the move, not until the two parties broke the speculation into a happening. The player of the season for two consecutive seasons at the London club is preparing a record move to the Manchester arena, Old Trafford.
A top, top class player, who is sidelined with the advent of the special one, not fitting into his game strategy, who is sorry for not making the best outta the Spanish play maker. So is the question looming over the pundits, whether he will be able to fit in to the philosophy of the current champions. The Spanish origin, is nothing short of creativity. That’s for sure.
Not very long before the headlines around the world read the ‘transfer’ to Manchester United for the club record money. 37 million Quid. It’s a lot of money.What a nice surprise ! Finally, the happy new year is at Old Trafford, at the end of the first month. That’s certainly one of the good things I would expect to happen, along with the rest of the fans.
No doubt the move will bring home the lost enthusiasm and confidence with the addition to the struggling squad. Alongside Wayne, Robin, Adnan, Shinji, some to mention, the Spaniard will be a worthy inclusion. Hope the 25 year old player will stand up to the expectation. The fingers are crossed.
He dons the shirt with no.8 and goes by the name – Juan Mata, the one that matters !
