Man U transfer policy?

While there has been loads of talk of RVP to Man United – is there really a need for a striker over a midfielder?

– RVP and Rooney could both play in the 4-4-1-1 formation.

– The goal scoring burden on Rooney would be lifted.

– However no decent CM – besides a 37 year old Paul Scholes.

While a serious question is raised over Sir Alex Ferguson’s transfer policy.

Important Points:

– Since 2007 United have spent £198m on 26 players

– Net spend of £47m, (however this figure is inflated by the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80m)

– Anderson has yet to really perform. The article states his transfer value at £17m however the Porto website claims Euro 30 million instead.

– Some good signings include Hernandez, Valencia, Nani and De Gea. (my personal opinion is that while both Hernandez and Welbeck are good they aren’t United level yet – hence looking at RVP)

– No replacement for Scholes, Giggs, Hargreaves, Nevile.

However dont bet against Fergie….ever!
