Gill's Relief

Gill's Relief

Chief executive David Gill admitted it's a relief for him that the club have finally signed Owen Hargreaves.

It's been a busy week for United: a long, protracted transfer saga has finally come to an end while the club acted lightning fast to secure the signatures of two amazing talents.

It's a bit of a personal triumph for David Gill, United's chief executive who's an ever-present at every negotiation so his happiness over the deals is quite understandable.

'It's a relief for me personally!' he told MUTV. 'It's no secret that we wanted to sign him last summer and we also tried in January, but we weren't able to get him.

'Thankfully everything has been sorted and I think it's good business for ourselves, Bayern Munich and Owen himself. We're delighted and I think he'll be a great signing for us.'

I guess he must be fed up with Uli Hoeness and co.! Concluding the transfers of Anderson and Nani so quickly led me to suspect he wanted desperately to avoid another embarassingly long story...

'We've watched Nani and Anderson for the last year,' he added. 'Carlos has great knowledge of Portuguese football and our scouts have also been watching them for a quite a while as well.

'We're very pleased to have secured their signatures.'

I can't help being optimistic!

Is the length of the Owen Hargreaves transfer saga a record in United's history? Or at least in Gill's career?

must be a record. Gill has also said it might be a end to our spending but im still expecting a striker to arive.
