Kompany Signs For United In Mega Deal
Manchester United have made the biggest signing of the transfer window yet by pulling off an amazing Player-plus-cash deal for twenty-nine year old Manchester City centre-back Vincent Kompany.
They have paid Manchester City £38,500,000 plus midfielders Andriy Yarmolenko and Xherdan Shaqiri and also out of favour English striker Danny Welbeck.
Kompany was part of the Man City side who were crowned Champions in 2012.
Kompany's arrival has been greeted in Positive fashion, despite being from bitter rivals Manchester City. Supporter spokesman Jamie Rose told the local media the fans recognised that despite being a former City player that he has great determination to play for the best and this will be United's gain and they have got 3 under performing players off there wage bill.
I am delighted to be signing for this great club and I am fully happy with the way that the manager wants to take this side. They won the treble last season and it was the right time for me to move on from City. It was an amazing time I had at City but they are not the same team as I joined seven seasons ago and I can not wait to play here at United next season said Kompany.
A Man City Supporters' spokesman revealed on air of disappointment over Kompany's departure, noting that he was a fan favourite and that he was held in high regard and he would be missed. However the fans do not appreciate the fact that he has left for there rivals United, but will always be a legend to them.
Shaqiri moves as he did not like how much playing time he had
The three moving to City shows just how ruthless Brendan Rodgers can be. Xherdan Shaqiri signed for United two season's ago for £31m but has on the whole been a flop, only making 15 appearances scoring just one goal in that time. Having said that, Benitez will be pleased to have got him.
Yarmolenko was also moved on to City
Andriy Yarmolenko started off as a favourite of Rodgers, but with Townsend and Mirallas performing so well the Ukrainian found it tough to get a spot in the starting XI. He was bought for £26.5m but only made 31 appearances with 26 of them in the first season. He will provide great speed and crossing for Man City.
Welbeck moves to Manchester City as Kompany goes the other way
Danny Welbeck leaves under a big cloud, with many fans thinking that Brendan Rodgers should have gave him a bit more of a chance. Welbeck made 77 appearances for Manchester United over 8 years but was not deemed as good as the impressive Steven Naismith and Jordan Rhodes, so finds himself leaving just like Robin Van Persie did because like Welbeck, he stuggled to get ahead of Steven Naismith.
