Manchester United

11-goal winger shows Mourinho exactly what he’s missed out on

Fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern love to see a good goal, especially from a young talent, but one doing the rounds in the bar today is making Manchester United fans dream of what they could have had.

Wind back around a month and United boss Jose Mourinho was being linked with a move for compatriot and Portugal U21 international Bruma.

However, the Galatasaray winger, who bagged 11 goals for the Turkish side last season, ended up signing for the Bundesliga surprise of the year RB Leipzig.

The German outfit, who stunned everyone in finishing second behind Bayern Munich in their first top flight season, have a penchant for working with young talent and giving them the stage to thrive, something Mourinho is not overly known for.

At the time there weren’t too many here in the bar that were concerned having lost Bruma to the Germans, that was until they saw his goal for Portugal at the U21 European Championships…

The United fans are now taking jokes from all sides of the Tavern, especially the lone hipster Leipzig fan in the corner.

United fans, we want to hear from you! Will Mourinho rue not signing Bruma this summer? Let us know in the comments below…
