It’s been not been easy for Manchester United supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern lately.
The reigning Premier League champions have looked anything but as new gaffer David Moyes struggles to insert his authority on Sir Alex Ferguson’s team. It’s the end of an era at Old Trafford with Nemanja Vidic announcing his summer departure, with fellow servants Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra set to follow suit.
The January arrival of Juan Mata is likely to give the team a new lease of life heading into the final months of the season but United are already playing catch-up with their main rivals.
This could see the Red Devils missing out a place in the Champions League for the first time in as long as anyone in the tavern can remember.
That could make it very difficult summer for Moyes, who despite having significant funds at his disposal could struggle to attract the player of calibre he may want as he seeks to rebuild his side.
One solution could be looking for players who are available after finishing their contracts elsewhere and could be signed for a bargain fee.
