    Transfers [​IMG]

    Manchester United have given a week long trial to Guillermo Varela, a 20-year-old right back who currently plays for Peñarol in the Uruguayan Primera Division

    He flew into Manchester in the early hours of Thursday morning and will be training with the youth team for a week in the hopes of impressing United enough to be offered a place in the academy.

    Varela, who is capped for Uruguay at U20 level and will represent them in the U20 World Cup this summer, looks to be somewhat of a hot prospect in Uruguay and he is already under a first team contract at Peñarol.

    This year, United have handed out a few trials to promising youngsters including Jurgen Damm of Estudiantes Teco and Jeffrey Schlupp of Leicester.

    Damm spoke highly of his time at the club and hopes to make a return in the future. As for Schlupp, he has romped his way into the Leicester starting XI and is now taking part in the Championship play-offs against Watford.

    The number of youth players United have scouted this season comes as no surprise to United fans given the traditions of the club and it is a tradition that I hope continues under Moyes.

    Uruguayan hotshot Varela enjoys joining up with Manchester United

    Guillermo Varela has returned to Uruguay after having a successful trial with Manchester United this week.
    The 20-year-old right-back came to Carrington after getting permission from his club Penarol to make the trip.
    And he admitted that he enjoyed his surprise trip after having a successful week training with the players.
    Speaking to Tirando Paredes, Varela said: ”I have trained with the first-team. I am very happy and I was received very well.
    “It was a surprise to get the chance to test with Manchester United. I’m glad and happy, and grateful to Penarol who allowed me to travel.
    “I was treated so well and Chicharito [Javier Hernandez] helped me a lot. The work outs were short but very demanding.”
    Varela joins the likes of Jurgen Damm and Jeffrey Schlupp who have all enjoyed successful trials at the club and like his South American counterpart Damm, Varela admitted that Chicharito helped him a lot during the week.
    It is a testament to the approachable attitude of Hernandez who really is a players’ player, happy to help out even with a youngster who is only with the club for one week.
    Considered a real prospect back in Uruguay, Varela is expected to represent his country at the U20 World Cup this summer.
    Diego Forlan is the only other Uruguayan who has played for Manchester United and he didn’t have the most successful time despite scoring some crucial goals, none more so than his winner against Liverpool that ‘made the Scousers cry’.
    But given his prospects, maybe Varela could become the second to represent United under new boss David Moyes when he takes over from the club in the summer.

    Chicharito got to be like the nicest footballer ever. :wub

    Jurgen Damm also mentioned how he helped him out during his trial. Have heard stories even on a Sunderland forum about how he helped someone in a departmental store.

    They want to improve bid for Guillermo Varela

    The leaders decided to continue the negotiations to transfer the juvenile to Manchester United.

    Peñarol's board met on Tuesday at noon and decided to continue negotiations with Manchester United to close the transfer of juvenile Guillermo Varela.

    The footballer was on trial in England and surprised the British by its terms, to the extent that they wondered why it was not in the first team owner mirasol.

    Manchester United proposed to buy the record of juvenile in exchange for 2,300,000 euros, to be paid as follows: 1,500,000 euros for the pass and a bonus of up to € 800,000 if he plays a certain number of games.

    Peñarol leaders aim to bring that offer to 3,000,000 euros and therefore will continue to negotiate.

    The issue is being handled by the entrepreneur Paul Bentancur.

    This looks legit.

    2 sources in Uruguay reporting it now. We have offered 1.5 million Euros rising to 2.3 but they want 3 million.

    Guillermo Varela travelled to England on Wednesday to sign for United, according to El Observador. The 20-year-old right-back is said to be tying up the move from Penarol before representing Uruguay in the Under-20 World Cup. The fee will reportedly rise depending on the number of games he plays in the PL.
