Why does everyone care about a 7 million pound signing?

Raul Meireless to Liverpool, Rafel van der Vaart to Spurs, Asamoah Gyan to Sunderland, Kenwyne Jones to Stoke City, and Bebe to Manchester United. What do all of these transfer have in common, all of them were for around the same amount of money, approximately 7 million pounds. What is the difference between them: None of them have had the amount of ink written about them then Bebe's move to Manchester United.

I know it comes as kind of a reach for United to spend that type of money on an unproven player. This is what soccernet said about the player in his bio: "When Manchester United announced that they had signed the Portuguese striker for £7.4 million in August 2010, there was confusion aplenty around the football world. Relatively unknown even in his own homeland, Bebe was plucked from obscurity by Sir Alex Ferguson - who admitted that he had never even seen the striker play before agreeing to sign him."

The story is strange I know, a homeless player getting his big shot with United but I like most United fans have faith in Sir Alex. This is not the first time that Mr. Red Nose has taken a shot on a young player like this, Ronaldo and that turned out ok.

In the video you can see his skills, so lets just see what happens before everyone goes nuts about him not being cut out for the EPL.
