The summer so far - Manchester United
The race for this trophy next year feels like its been on ever since the season ended. No time for Sir Alex Ferguson to celebrate another Premier League trophy for Manchester United, as the race heats up to snap up all the available top quality players to improve every single squad in the league. United seem to be on top again, being the first of the top teams to invest money in signing 3 quality players. First in the door was young Phil Jones from Blackburn, who I believe has the potential to be a high quality center back for years to come. With Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic to look up to and emulate, Jones will only get better and better as long as he gets his first team opportunities. Next up Ashley Young. Importantly another young English player who has now established himself in the England team as a regular and a vital member of the team. Consistently improving, I believe another great signing from Ferguson, and a long term replacement to the ageing Ryan Giggs. Lastly David De Gea. Youth again seems the key for Ferguson, and what a keeper this guy is. He has made an astonishing start to his career becoming a first team regular at Athletico Madrid at just 18 years of age. Two full successful seasons and I believe a great long term replacement for Van Der Saar at just 20 years of age. A fantastic start to the summer for Sir Alex Ferguson.
Man United fan's what do you think about the summer so far for your team?
