ABOVE: Guillermo Varela is David Moyes' first signing as Manchester United manager
This is what he deserves. It is a shame to see him go but you can’t deny him this opportunity.
Penarol head coach Jorge Da Silva
DAVID MOYES has completed his first signing as Manchester United boss as the Premier League champions signed Guillermo Varela last night.
United confirmed the arrival of the Uruguayan right-back for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £1m, rising to £2.5m depending on appearances.
Varela, 20, spent a number of weeks on trial at Old Trafford towards the end of the season and impressed coaching staff and outgoing United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
But Moyes gave the go ahead to secure a deal with South American giants Penarol, to sign the defender as cover for Brazilian Rafael.
Penarol head coach Jorge Da Silva said: “This is what he deserves. It is a shame to see him go but you can’t deny him this opportunity.”
