why are they paying £25m for an unproven youngster who's still a work in progress? He's good, but not £25m good.

Seams like a lot of money, considered they accuse Chelsea for beeing spenders...

I might remember some guys yelling when Rooney was bought from Everton as well... I think Sir Alex Ferguson knows what he is doing:)

... and very rarely do they actually live up to the expectations that come with such a ridiculous price-tag.

Often because they're too immature and not professional enough to behave themselfs like they should when they're off the pitch.

Personally, I think one of the most exceptional and biggest talents on european fields right now is Arsenal's japanese youngster Ryo, who is now on loan at Feyenoord.

"unproven youngster" how long have you been a man utd fan for. clearly not very long.

Sir Alex has an eye for talent. and then he develops that talent. Rolando was not the superstar he is prior to joining man utd. neither is chicharito. but with time, Hernandez will be the next player worth 80mil.

if Sir Alex is spending 25mil, there definitely is something that he can see in Rodwell that makes that seem a fair price.

1. He's not worth that much right now

2. Not a Man Utd fan. I prefer Arsenal and Barcelona, other than that I 'try' to be neutral.
