I really dont see the appeal with this player, not up to the quality of Real Madrid...

KingPin3079d ago

actually he is...thats the reason im so confused as a united fan how does he start behind welbeck and an under-performing van persie.

he has scored some important goals for united since he joined. he's quick and a quality finisher. substitute him in place of benzema and madrid will be doing damage.

That is true- he's quite the poacher and yes no doubt his pace will suit a less physical league like La Liga.

The 'problem' he has, is that Fergie saw him as the 'super-sub / impact player. The type you bring on when the opposition defence is mentally and physically tiring, rather than the starting type, especially with Rooney, RVP and Welbeck in front of him.
Personally, I can appreciate his value in this role but equally, I can appreciate just how frustrating it must be for him.
Didn't his National manager recently urge him to make a move to Juventus for regular starts?. I think he's a cracking footballer and amongst the best in regards movement and finding space.
But now, on the face of it, it seems he will be in a similar position as understudy to Benzema
