United's new signing Freddie Veseli

United have signed 19-year-old  Manchester City central defender Freddie Veseli in a surprise move according  to reports.

The Manchester Evening News notes:

The Reds tied up the Swiss starlet, who captained his country to Under-17 World Cup triumph in 2009, yesterday – and Veseli headed into Manchester, dressed in a red jacket, to celebrate.

Veseli was seen as a good prospect at City, but he was frustrated at not making the breakthrough into the first team squad.

That frustration increased recently when the Blues lost skipper Vincent Kompany and drafted 17-year-old defender Karim Rekik into the squad as cover.

Veseli joined City from Lausanne in 2008 and is a composed, ball-playing centre back – he was taken on the Blues’ summer tour of North America, playing in two of the three games.

With the Reds’ injury crisis, there’s no doubt a new defensive addition cannot be a bad thing, although many have been left baffled as to why we’ve bought a defender deemed not good enough for the City side.

Vaseli hasn”t looked like troubling the City starting XI and it seems strange that a deadline day signing- no doubt bought to help with the injury crisis, is a lad with so little experience.

The usual ‘Trust In Fergie’ brigade will no doubt be confident that the United manager has pulled off some form of coup, managing to sign   promisin young defender from our main rivals.

Those more sceptical may wonder how on earth a player obviously not considered good enough for City’s team is somehow good enough for ours. Only time will tell who’s right…..

    He’s not that good tbh and I have seen him a bit, can’t understand why you’re signing him. He’s rated less than Rekik, Wabara, Meppen-Walter and Kennedy in the City youth defensive ranks and has not been able to break through at all unlike the 17 year old Rekik.

    So what would have you rathar have. A bag full of arabic oil money (you don’t even win anything with the best names in the country), or a cabin full of triumps? I know what I’d like.

      Triumps? Wasnt that the name of a car? What ManU have got is the biggest leaches in World football sucking the life blood from the Club and gormless shirt buyer like you swallow it and tell everyone how lucky you are.

      Talk about bitter, deluded and moronic. You sign a player who has failed to make the grade, resign a retired player, have an expensive useless keeper and you some how think the future is yours. Love it. No wonder your CEO says you are not the brightest of fans. No wonder the Glazers mug you,

      Gullible. Real United football fans support FCUM.

    I am not obsessed with City I am just sad and increasingly lonely United fan who hasn’t got a clue what to do with my empty life. Oh where is Manchester by the way? I thought it was in the north somewhere but when me mates took me there there was no sign of the United Meccano Stadium. Anyone heard of a place called Trafford? Never heard of that City have you.
