The new era has officially begun. Young right-back Guillermo Varela has joined United for a fee believed to be around the £1million mark, potentially rising to £2.5million depending on various add-ons and bonuses. The ex-Atlético Peñarol man undertook a medical today before confirming the move.
You do have to wonder though, who’s signing is this? Is it Moyes’ or has this one come from above? I’ve never seen him play if i’m being honest, in a way its very similar to the Alexander Buttner deal from last season.
Varela will join up with the United squad after featuring for his native Uruguay at the U20 World Championships in Turkey.
