The difference is, being such a key position United will spend whatever it takes to give ourselves the best opportunity to resolve this. Szceszny is an outstanding prospect, but he would actually benefit from having a top experienced keeper at the club for a couple of seasons.
The fact that Wenger was keen enough on Schwarzer to have actually made a bid, and then refused to pay the extra £0.5m or so that would have landed him, was a concern (hindsight on his poor season notwithstanding). Could well have cost you the title this season.
