Michael Carrick completes Manchester United move

Tottenham midfielder Michael Carrick has completed his move to Manchester United for an estimated fee of 13 million pounds. The fee could rise to 18.6 million pounds,which would make him the fifth most expensive player to wear the sacred jersey of the Red Devils.

Carrick was targeted by Sir Alex Ferguson as a replacement for the legendary Roy Keane whose abrupt departure last season left United with a gaping hole to fill in midfield. Tottenham have made a clean profit from the sale of Carrick whom they acquired from West Ham for 2.75 million pounds.They have also signed a replacement in the form of Ivory Coast midfielder Didier Zokora.

Many pundits feel that United have paid a little too much for Carrick,which I second.He is nowhere in the league of Keane,although Sir Alex could make him one.
