Sir Alex’s other bargain this summer is flying under the radar

Javier Hernandez has stolen the headlines from Dimitar Berbatov as flavour of the month. His goals against Chelsea, Valencia, Stoke and last night against Wolves have endeared him to all United fans and have the papers praising Sir Alex for what appears to have been a coup in getting the young Mexican so cheap before the World Cup rather than paying an inflated fee after.

Yet whilst Hernandez is stealing the headlines, and rightly so, another of Sir Alex’s signings is slowly building a reputation for himself waiting for his chance to burst into the limelight.

When we signed Chris Smalling last season, it raised more than a few eyebrows. The fact he had just broken into the Fulham team having been a non league player certainly surrounded the move in controversy and the fact his end of season performances weren’t the strongest either meant many believed we had over spent or even wasted money full stop on the young defender.

Javier Hernandez Chicharito

But since joining United, I have seen nothing from him to make me think that.

On the club’s US tour he showed glimpses of what he was about and although I won’t see he totally won over all his doubters, he did enough to make us optimistic about his future. From there he has gone from strength to strength building on each performance and slowly growing into his role as a United player.
