Arnau Puigmal has finally completed his planned move to Spain after leaving Manchester United. And there is a very familiar face in his new club.
Almeria signed Largie Ramazani after the winger left at Old Trafford and now they have added Puigmal to their squad.
Both players were predicted for big things at United. But neither have reached the heights and they will have a point to prove next season.
Ramazani turned down a new deal with United last summer. In 29 games he scored five goals and prepared one for the La Liga 2 team, which justified his decision.
Instead of being loaned out or settling for a few cup games in England, the Belgian is now an integral part of his new team after a surge in the late season. And Puigmal will hope to follow suit.

The Spanish midfielder came to United with a great reputation. But he goes by his name without a first team outing.
He was released after making it clear that he would not sign a new contract, according to the Manchester Evening News. In short, he made the same call as Ramazani.
Players have to be brave sometimes. And that is what the former United brochures certainly did.
They turned down new deals at one of the biggest clubs in the world because they wanted to play.
For that they deserve a lot of credit and it will be interesting to see what the next season has in store.
Time to prove its worth
Puigmal and Ramazani are both 20 and have their entire careers ahead of them. Having played regularly for United youth teams, they can now thrive in senior football.
Your first task is to pull Almeria from the second row. From there they could play against some of the best clubs in Europe.
It’s a move similar to where Angel Gomes United traded for Lille.
The competition for seats is tougher than ever, with only the very best of prospects breaking through at Old Trafford. And only then with a little luck.
Now Puigmal is joining Ramazani to prove that there is life after United. And every Red Devils fan will wish them the best.
