Unsurprisingly, our Manchester United supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been on the double spirits lately to ease their pain of a quite simply horrible week.
Heading out of the Champions League last Tuesday evening ahead of going under 2-1 at AFC Bournemouth on the weekend, today’s Europa League tie with FC Midtjylland was hardly inspiring either and surely not what Louis van Gaal would’ve had in mind at the start of the campaign.
But if only Manchester United could call upon a certain Pep Guardiola right now?
According to today’s copy of the Daily Star, the reports claim United chiefs are growing increasingly confident that they can do a deal for the top class Spanish manager once he decides to move on from Bayern Munich.
Quite rightly, Louis van Gaal is on the rocks at the minute and a fair few of our Red Devils regulars are truly questioning whether the club are actually even closer to winning the Premier League compared to the spell of David Moyes before him.
The problem is that van Gaal has splashed an incredible £250 million on this team and rival fans have been poking fun that there isn’t a single world class outfield player in the team outside David De Gea of course!
You could forgive our United supporters for daydreaming given the current mess they find themselves within and that’s why today, we’ve produced a five-man shortlist of players who could potentially follow Guardiola to Old Trafford, if appointed in the coming seasons.
