I really fan of Man United since 1999. I'm Brazilian and when Manchester United won Palmeiras in the FIFA world of clubs in 1999. Then I became a fan this club.
My favorite player is Wayne Rooney.
I remember of the game against Chelsea in the final Champions League. When Cristiano Ronaldo score in the penalty kick and after lose yours penalty kick this was very exciting.
I love this club and one day I have sure I'll watch one game at Old Trafford.

Hi Davilillons and welcome to Premier Skills English!

Thanks for your comment, I hope it's the first of many! Your English is very good and using phrases like 'in fact' show that you have a good understanding of the language. However, there are a couple of things I could help you with:

1) 'I think as Jane' is incorrect. You could say: I think the same as Jane.

2) When you say 'they have signed to other defender and other midfielder' you say this as a fact but it hasn't happened yet, so it would be better to say: 'they need to sign another defender or another midfielder'  or 'they have to sign another defender or midfielder'.

Hope that helps!

Manchester United have already bought Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan(rumours that Pogba will reinforce their midfield become louder) and with new pragmatist manager- Jose Mourinho, they will definitely be one of the pretenders on the title. Very difficult task is making prediction, especially after previous amazing season, let say that Manchester United will be at the third position at the end.
