London:

With Manchester United in danger of missing out on the Champions League next season, Juan Mata's arrival at Old Trafford for a club record fee of 37.1 million pounds ($61.2 million) is certainly an emergency move. But it also marks the first step in the rebuilding process of England's most titled club.

After a botched transfer campaign last summer that led to the club's lackluster first half of the season, United now looks determined to allow manager David Moyes the opportunity to build his own team.
