A few rowdy Manchester United punters have just put a ‘In Moyes we trust’ banner up, right above the snooker table, which can mean only one thing.
It means that Jeremy Cross, from the Daily Star, must be in the Football Transfer Tavern with some gossip.
According to Jeremy, the Red Devils are set to launch a £30 million bid for Real Madrid’s Mesut Ozil, after the La Liga giants made the German international available for transfer.
David Moyes has turned to the 24-year-old after finally accepting his rather ‘clingy’ transfer pursuit of Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas is well and truly over.
Jeremy tells the excited United fans that the former Werder Bremen playmaker knows he will be surplus to requirements when Madrid finally complete a world record deal for Tottenham Hotspurs’ Gareth Bale and Old Trafford is his preferred destination.
Jeremy is just about to give us some more Manchester United transfer news (I imagine on Everton’s Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini) but some Manchester City fans have just turned up, and things started to get heated.
The City fans mocked the ‘In Moyes we trust’ banner but after I offered everyone a free round of shots the tension subsided and a friendly debate began (well, as friendly as it can get between the two sets of fans).
