Sky Sports News have announced this morning that Man Utd have signed Villarreal's holding midfielder and Spanish international, Marcos Senna for Ã‚Â£8.2m
Reports in the Spanish media are claiming Manchester United are closing on a deal for Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna. The Spain international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for much of the summer, but it appeared a deal had been ruled out when The Red Devils stepped in for Michael Carrick. Tottenham Hotspur star Carrick is expected to complete his move to United early next week and his arrival will go some way to beefing up a midfield which has looked stretched in the last six months.
The former West Ham United man has looked comfortable in the holding role for England, but is not in the same ilk as United legend Roy Keane. Senna, though, has won many fans for the way he has bossed the engine room for Villarreal and he could slot into the enforcer role in The Premiership. The 30-year-old said recently that he was flattered to be linked with a move to Old Trafford, but favoured inking a new deal at Villarreal. Sky Sports News
As i understand it, Senna can play in the Champions League this season.Red Rob said:Hope United have done their homework on this lad. He has already played this summer for Villarreal in the Intertoto Cup, so that could mean he's not eligible for any Champions League games. Rob
