Great signing for them. Provides them with a goal threat that Welbeck and Hernandez just can't match. They only lost the league to Man City by 1 goal after all.

Lost his confidence after a miss? Lots of players have missed great chances, it happens. Careers don't go down the pan because of it

He's 29 which is the only worry for them but he's just came off his greatest ever season so it's got to be considered a great deal until proven otherwise.

Andy Carroll & Stewart Downing = £55m

Robin van Persie & Shinji Kagawa = £27m

Gerd Muller? What about Thomas Muller? top goalscorer at the world cup to his credit, Messi has like one goal in two world cups, including countless easy misses in 2010.

Messi will one day be on Muller or Donovan's or Dempsey's level internationally (where it really matters) but he's not there yet.

You can say Messi is better than Muller if you want but you're acting as if Muller is a scrub just stop.
