“Hello, hello, hey; pay attention to the manager!”
Today, our resident Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are questioning whether Louis van Gaal broke into Sir Alex Ferguson’s old red wine cabinet at Old Trafford following his rather colourful half cut speech at the Red Devils’ player of the season awards yesterday evening.
In incredibly merry spirits, the Dutch tactician was in celebratory mood given United have all but qualified for the Champions League at the first time of asking under his stewardship.
It has been a case of mission accomplished for the Red Devils who by their own admission are more than content with snatching fourth place this term, seen as the ideal foundations from which to mount more of an assault on the Premier League title next season.
With one of the sound bite gems from van Gaal’s speech last night being that United are “very CLOSE” to the likes of Chelsea, in reality, they need to continue with a few more big name arrivals before they can really claim they are an on equal footing with the Blues.
With Memphis Depay already in the bag with the Dutch ace having completed his medical this week, United fans can look forward to another busy summer in the transfer market. Here are five midfielders who could be following Depay into the Theatre of Dreams.
