Manucho Rejoins Manchester United

With all the attention on the Dimitar Berbatov saga, little has been made of 25 year old Angolan national, Manucho, who has rejoined Manchester United after finally securing a UK work permit. Manucho signed a three year contract with United last December, but was forced out on loan to Panathinaikos FC after he was unable to obtain a UK work permit.

It became obvious just how good of a prospect Manucho was after his spectacular showing at this years' African Cup of Nations. During the Cup of Nations he scored four goals in three games and was named honored with a "Best XI of the Cup" award. Now the real question will be, how does Ferguson balance the likes of Berbatov, Rooney, Tevez and Manucho?
