    He's already played for Barca...so we can at least be safe in the knowledge if he's a big success...he won't cry about playing for them :)

    I was winding people up being unfunny and not bothered throughout the Hazard saga because he wasn't my choice, but losing out on this one would have devastated me. Absolutely delighted.

    Happy with whatever we do now the rest of the summer.

    ability-wise he's a very good signing. but i like how the transfer was conducted. no media whoring, no unnecessary drama.

    Happy i am.

    Hell yeah. Fantastic signing, but surely we shouldnt be confirming it until the medical and work permit is sorted? Maybe just formalities but still...

    Nothing is so common as the wish to be remarkable.
    Its always great when its done early and not left to the last date. Next to sort out Pogba's situation one way or the other.

    Very good, exciting player.

    I'll update the transfer's thread a bit later, any mention of a fee?

    This will be one of our better transfers in recent years. Up there with the likes of Vidic and Evra in terms of long term value.

    Is he our first ever Japanese player? I'm struggling to think of another. Anyway to the Martinez thread :drool:

    He'll be an awesome asset to our squad. Rooney (26), Welbeck (21), Nani (25), Valencia (26), Young (26), Kagawa (23), Hernandez (24).... pace, skills, movement, goal threat, now that is some forward line to pick! (and incredibly young as well)

    Can't wait to see him in action for us :cool:

    I am looking forward to seeing him in action. I have only seen him live on TV for 1 and a 1/2 games and seen all the You Tube footage.

    He really does look impressive. But I do think it will take a while to find his feet at the club.

    He looks a bit light weight and may be forced off the ball quite easily. But no reason why he cannot adapt.
