They completely arsed up trying to sign the original Ronaldinho, but Manchester United have pulled off the first unexpected big signing of the summer by picking up Porto ace Anderson, jumping ahead of rumoured interest from Chelsea and Barcelona previously.
Of all the players who United have been linked with recently, Anderson could arguably have the greatest impact. A player who, if he fulfills his immense potential, could give the club three of the best players in the world joining Rooney and Ronaldo and the fact that all three are under 22 is even scarier for the rest of the Premiership. He’s fast, tricky and…well, everything else that young Brazilian’s tend to be.
If there was ever an indication that Sir Alex plans to manage United until his deathbed, this may be it.
And, of course, the obiligatory YouTube compilation with – for some reason – JT providing the beats.
