Garay - The First Signing?

Today is the first day, officially, of the managerial reign of David Moyes.

Having not officially welcomed David to Old Trafford I guess now is the ideal time.

With his feet under the table, as they say, speculation is bound to increase as to who will be his first signing.

Today also marks the official opening of the transfer window, although I doubt whether any ceremony aided by a fanfare of brass instruments heralds the occurrence.

But, it`ll be interesting to see if Moyes does land Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Leighton Baines or any of the other names mentioned in the previous weeks.

However, good money is going on Ezequiel Garay as being the first signing of the Moyes era with it being mentioned that Benfica, having signed his successor - Lisandro Ezequiel Lopez from Arsenal de Sarandi are now ready to do business.

The Argentine centre-back is valued at 17 million and has been linked with a move to Old Trafford on numerous occasions in the last six months, it just remains to be seen whether a deal will be struck or whether the media have been playing us for fools all along!

Really don't see why we're signing another cb we have plenty of cover there. Unless the stories of Vidic being on the way are true but we'd be idiots to sell him!

17 mil for CB?! Is this for real? We don't need another CB. Not one who would demand a place in the first team anyway and certainly not one who couldn't cut it at Madrid yet expects to make it in England on the back of a decent stint in a very poor Portuguese league. I've always been of the opinion we could do with an up and coming young CB, like Varane previously, just to add depth in the event the injury crisis at the back began to crop up again. Someone who can't yet demand a first team place ahead of what we've already got but is certainly capable in the event they are drafted in. Someone we could loan out with an option to recall to other Premier League clubs with the potential to truly replace Vidic or Ferdinand.

Seriously? A centre back, there is a gaping hole in our team and its not at the centre back position, it's 4 seasons now of this crap, buy a quality centre midfielder already.
