Every signing has its advantages and its disadvantages, that’s a given. For example, the deal that brought Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Man Utd offered an obvious immediate impact as well as experience, but those traits came at the cost of longevity. Likewise, Paul Pogba’s arrival demanded a huge financial outlay, but as one of Europe’s best midfielders, it was a risk worth taking.
Particularly at a huge club like Man Utd, it’s important that Red Devils seek to ensure that any deal that they complete has more of the former, rather than the latter.
That’s why, when Man Utd were linked with Bayern Munich star Thiago earlier this week, we immediately got thinking about how this deal could work out for the Red Devils. It’s a deal that could work out wonderfully for the club, but it could also go horribly wrong.
It makes sense, then, to compare both sides of the coin.
