This week in the Football Transfer Tavern, our resident Manchester United fans have been swotting up on incoming arrival Matteo Darmian so that our landlord can’t make jibes that they’re simply jumping on the bandwagon in pretending to know all there is to know about the Italian international.
Darmian is arriving from Torino and will undoubtedly be Louis van Gaal’s first choice selection at right back and if the truth be told, Manchester United fans were starting to get worried regarding the Red Devils’ lack of arrivals so far this summer.
With numerous positions yet to strengthen and the likes of Robin van Persie departing to Fenerbahce, on the face of it right now, United need another centre back, another centre midfielder and probably two strikers.
We had thought that United would be in for a goalkeeper too to replace the departing David De Gea but it is increasingly looking like Victor Valdes will be their new number one for the forthcoming 2015/16 campaign.
So with quite a lot of transfer activity expected at Old Trafford yet, our landlord has been talking to United fans regarding who exactly they’d like to see fill those aforementioned areas before the window slams shut at the start of September.
Here’s the missing jigsaw piece-type signings that United fans came up with. Do you agree with their selections?
