Manchester United have completed the signing of the much-sought after Republic of Ireland teenager Robert Brady.
The 16-year-old winger joins from North Dublin club St Kevins Boys after Sir Alex Ferguson beat off competition from several rival Premier League sides chasing the youngster, who will move to United later this year.

St Kevins Football Director Ken O'Donoghue says United had beaten all of their main rivals to the addition of the Republic of Ireland Under 16 player, who he likened to a current Red Devils superstar.

"All the top clubs were after Robbie," O'Donoghue told setantasports.com.

"You could name any one of fifteen of the top Premier League teams and we've had invitations from them.

"He has gone on trials with Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, as well as West Brom and a couple of other teams.

"He 's a lively wide player. A lot of people have compared him to Liam Brady, but he's more a Ryan Giggs type of player, a fast out and out winger."

Even Djemba-Djemba and Miller were 'packaged' to us as the next Roy Keane when they were first signed. And we went absolutely bonkers.... for not too long.:eek: :eek: :rolleyes:

Lol.

I shall cross my fingers this time.

its all good and well saying hes the "new Ryan Giggs" but despite his age whats wrong with the old Ryan Giggs? i mean yes if this lad as had trials at Arsenal and Chelsea already we had to buy him now but i dont think he will get a run in the st team yet if ever, As when Giggs does retire we have got Nani who i think will be his replacement so im not that bothered if hes the new Ryan Giggs or not as personly i dont think it matters :eek:

Over the years United have signed "dozens" of new George Bests, From Peter Coyne to Andy Ritchie, to some mentioned already. Not one, to date, has even achieved a regular first team place, therefore I wait, and watch ...............

the word, by the way, is break into the first team, not brake, which is what all hopefuls have done to date.
