Manchester United Message Board
"Manchester United have confirmed the signing of young defender [right back] Guillermo Varela from Uruguayan club Atletico Penarol. The two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee [£2m I think] for 20-year-old, who spent the final few weeks of last season on trial with the Premier League champions.
Varela will join up with the United squad after featuring for Uruguay in the forthcoming FIFA U20 World Championship in Turkey."
Good news as sometimes we were short of defenders last season and might stop Rafael becoming too hot-headed if he knows he has a challenger.
When news broken that Man U have signed Varela, I thought that they were referring to the Portugal International who plays for Porto, the better of the two Varelas. Confusing eh! Anyone on here seen this Varela in action before?

If you haven't seen utd's latest signing play how can you say that the other Varela is the better of the two players? There is the world of different between an assumption made because you are an abu and a realistic assessment based on watching - on a regular basis - both players play.
"the better of the two Varelas" - Stop trying to be clever, Slayer, with yet another feeble dig at United. One Varelas is a 28-year old winger, the other a 20-year old fullback. Not at all confusing
