Definitely a panic buy. Why are we sending Januzaj away for a fucking nobody who might or might not come good? Well at least its not fucking Charlie Austin.

Listen to this clip,

http://talksport.com/football/anthony-m ... -superstar

Sounds just like Nani

Heres what Sky say about him-

It wasn't all positives from Karlsen. "On the flip side there are issues about consistency, ability to impose himself physically and possibly a certain lack of determination," he wrote on Twitter.

That would appear to be backed up by the views of former Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri who worked with Martial during the teenager's difficult first season at the club.

"He is a great youngster with a great future, but he must change his mind-set," the Italian told a press conference in 2013. "Sometimes the French mentality is, 'Today I play well, maybe I'll play well tomorrow'. No, you must work hard to do your best every day."


I can imagine the rows he's going to have with LVG....

Sounds like they're describing Depay, Januzaj or any other young player who needs grooming on how to be professional.

Watched a clip of him...

Strenths... acceleration, running off the ball...

Weaknesses... passing...

We should have just signed Bolt...

£35mill...

I'd assume Man Utd are using more extensive sources than Youtube or whoscored.com

He seems to have lovely close ball control, and seems like a winger to me. I don't think he'll play as a no 9 although Van Gaal could play him there. He's seems to have the control, pace to do the job.
