In celebratory mood after achieving an opening day win, not to mention watching both Arsenal and Chelsea drop some early points, our Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are loving life right now.
They’re mood has been improved even further however with the news in Metro today that claims Lazio’s Argentine international midfielder Lucas Biglia has agreed terms on a switch to Old Trafford.
At this point, our resident Red Devils fans are wondering whether Louis van Gaal has designs on playing Biglia as a centre back given the embarrassment of riches United boast in central midfield right now.
At present, United can call upon Michael Carrick, Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera in the middle of the park and now it looks as if Biglia will be joining them.
United fans are of course very happy because the Argentine is a quality player but in the back of their minds, they’re wondering just when van Gaal is going to address his striker shortfall, issues at central defence and potentially a new signing to cover for David De Gea.
We suppose it is a sign of the times that despite having already signed five players this summer, United appear as if they’re in no mood to cease their spending at present.
With this in mind, we’ve devised a list of five players who could end up following Lucas Biglia to Old Trafford in the remainder of the transfer window.
