Fellaini arrival delights Carrick

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick labels Marouane Fellaini’s arrival at Manchester United ‘good news’ even though they’ll be competing for a place in David Moyes’ starting line-up. The Belgian cost United £27.5m on transfer deadline day, and the signing was eventually announced after the 11pm deadline had passed.

The 25-year old Belgian international had been linked with United all summer and its fair to say he divides opinion amongst supporters. Many label him as ‘not a United player’ while others claim he is that defensive midfielder United have been crying out for. Personally I think he’ll prove to be an excellent signing, he’s a player Moyes knows very well, and despite what people say he can play with the ball at his feet.

Carrick said:

“It’s something I welcome.

“The more top quality players you have in your squad, whether it’s in my position or not, the better it is for the team.

“It’s not a case of me thinking ‘I might not be in the team’. I will have to play well to be in it, regardless.”

Hopefully these two will play alongside each other for the most part this season. I think Moyes will adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation with Fellaini and Carrick both in the holding role, allowing the front four to get forward.
