Manchester United are the current Premier League champions but despite this, there have been calls in the Football Transfer Tavern all summer for David Moyes to spend and it’s not like he hasn’t been trying.
A few weeks back, a punter walked in with ‘Thiago’ on the back of his United shirt and don’t worry, the punters tore into him but it is always only friendly banter in the tavern. Obviously, the Red Devils missed out on the Barcelona midfielder who eventually joined Bayern Munich.
Anyway, you won’t believe this next bit; the same guy was in a week or so ago with his brand new United shirt but only this time with ‘Fabregas’ on the back. Some people never learn do they?
Marouane Fellaini is now the man Moyes wants to fill the ‘unfillable’ hole left by Paul Scholes and Everton have seemingly been refusing to even open negotiations with their Premier League rivals all summer long, however reports in today’s Metro suggest a deal may well be close.
During last night’s lock-in, I asked the guys if there is anyone else they’d like to see join United if they fail in their pursuit of Marouane Fellaini. Here’s what they suggested in the gallery below.
