Is Manchester United’s spending good for the long run?

The rumours have no started flying out from people who are supposedly “in the know” about Manchester United signing (insert superstar name here), but could they mess up all these transfers?

Surely not, considering that Louis Van Gaal is at the helm? Well, maybe some of the transfers could be to appease the stockholders, and even the fans. Here’s what I think about the mega business United have pulled off.

Firstly, I will say that Manchester United’s business has been nothing short of extraordinary recently, and I actually expect it to continue. With David De Gea and Angel Di Maria reportedly on their way out soon, they will need to bring in some replacements, and don’t forget that Robin Van Persie has left as well, so that leaves room for another striker since Radamel Falcao wont be returning. So maybe, as the rumours have predicted, Angel Di Maria could be the key for a new striker.

If Di Maria decides to go to Paris and join PSG, then United will look to snap up Edison Cavani, who some view as never really settling in at PSG, but the presence of a certain Zlatan wouldn’t have helped. However, Cavani is likely to be the successor to the goal scoring throne at Paris Saint Germain when Zlatan decides to leave.

Bayern Munich have been touted as looking to make a bid for Di Maria, which United responded with an enquiry about Robert Lewandowski. I would usually think that this deal would be out of this world, but when Pep Guardiola is happy to get rid of a Bavarian God such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, anything can happen.

Amazing business, right? Well, it doesn’t stop there! Late last night, United announced that Morgan Schneiderlin had joined from Southampton and was the latest edition to the suddenly strong United midfield. United had managed to capture a World Cup winner and German legend in Schweinsteiger and the most coveted midfielder in the whole Premier League for under £50 Million. Surely this ends the midfield worries that Manchester United have been dogged with since the departure of Paul Scholes?

Well, not quite. It could be, but at the moment, it looks like United are buying players, simply because they can. Yes, Schneiderlin is a great investment, but what is the real need to buy Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has had injury after injury recently, when he isn’t going to be around for many more years meaning Man United will have to spend big again on a player they could buy now.

Louis Van Gaal worked with Schweinsteiger at Bayern Munich a few years ago, and he could get the best out of him, proving me wrong. Or, its Van Gaal’s way of having someone in the dressing room that is on his side. Either way, I still think it is a risk on United’s part to sign him, as well as a catastrophic error on Munich’s part to let him go. Did I also mention that Schweinsteiger didn’t actually want to leave Bayern Munich, he felt like he was being edged out by the manager, the same man who eventually wants to become the manager of Manchester United Pep Guardiola, meaning Schweinsteiger wont be sticking around for a while.
