I don't think this would be a good signing.
Good player but not at all what we need in midfield. I'll also trot out one of my greatest hits and say that he's too old to be worth spending anything significant on.
Can absolutely see where youíre coming from, but anything that removes Schneiderlin and gets a quality DM in the side ASAP is a good use of money, plus 25m euros ainít that much.
Heís a good passing DM and a defensive-minded regista kind of player, not defence splitting passes but just pass pass pass, keep the ball and dictate. Basically what Schneiderlin should be doing.
However, it does raise that question of what the hell are we going to do with Gueye / the other midfield position...
Think rooney has made a really good case for being the 8, his quality on the ball has been evident and heís even getting amongst the Goals (could do with more none pen Goals if possible).
Gueye better as a ball winner, but we seem intent on pushing him up (imo so he can win the ball further up the field and we can use his energy).
Hopefully Gueye / NíZonzi is a better fit than what we have, but I canít shake the feeling itís going to be quite similar, and that his transfer has a SLIGHT air of Alex Song at West Ham about it..
