I don't mean Galactico signings and I agree with the rest of your post. United spent big money on Keane, Rooney, Ferdinand, Carrick, Van Nistelrooy, Stam, etc. They weren't Galacticos but the club were happy to spend what was necessary because they wanted those players. Not a profile or position but those particular players. They didn't go for David Batty instead of Keane or Vassell instead of Rooney because they were cheaper. If Koulibaly has the talent, mentality and personality the club wants, then he's worth the money. I really hate the stories of "I want a centre back and have given a list of 5 to the board". With that type of recruitment strategy, if you end up with a top class centre back partnership it will be pure luck.
