Manchester United’s day in terms of transfers couldn’t have got any worse. Earlier on, Nicolas Otamendi sealed a move to Manchester City, and in the last few moments Pedro Rodrigez has completed his move to Chelsea – despite United being heavily linked with both recently.
This is obviously a major disappointment for the fans of Manchester United across the globe. Not only are these two great players, but both of which play in areas United desperately need to strengthen.
United’s best centre-back at the moment is Chris Smalling, and alongside Nicolas Otamendi, they could’ve formed a formidable duo.
Pedro on the other hand would’ve been the perfect Angel di Maria replacement. He has bags of pace, football intelligence and he is extremely versatile. All at £21.4million its an absolute bargain.
United’s reported interest in Sadio Mane doesn’t fill me with confidence either, so lets hope The Iron Tulip has something big up his sleeve…
