    Questions for Eric 'The Birdie' Cantona..............

    Man U have signed Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini from Everton for £27.5m, £4.5M over his original buyout clause, according to BBC Sport.

    Here are the glaring questions for our Birdie board user - why wasn't this deal done as soon as Moyes took over, why didn't Man U pay the release clause of £23m as confirmed by Everton's chairman Bill Kenwright in early part of the transfer window, why made a derisory offer to buy both Baines and Fellaini for £28m? Why has the overall transfer policy been a farce? Did Moyes panic at the closing seconds to pay the full asking price Everton wanted for a midfielder Man U don't really need in their squad?
