Who would you pick? Seems like that’s becoming the big questions of this season.
1. Wayne Rooney. For a long time is looked very likely that he’d be heading town to London and pulling on a blue shirt. Now? He’s potentially going to take the captain’s armband (from a departing Vidic and aging Evra)
2. Juan Mata. Was one of the best performing players (and fantasy players for that matter) last season for Chelsea. He simply couldn’t stop scoring and assisting. Then comes Mourinho, benches him, and he hot-tails it up to Manchester and takes over the #8 shirt.
3. Diego Cost. Looks like he’s going to be the next to decide. Should be join a packed attacking lineup at United, but one that could be a lot less packed after this season, depending on what happens to Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez. Or, does he head to the capital and potentially battle for a spot next year with Edinson Cavani (if we’re to believe the monster bid that Abramavich is authorizing to steal him from Paris)?
It is going to be fun to watch it all unfold. Chelsea has been getting younger, and can United follow suit?
