Manchester United

Classy £27m-rated defensive midfielder can be the perfect summer signing for Manchester United

Manchester United cruised into the FA Cup last eight this weekend with a comfortable win over Huddersfield, as Romelu Lukaku showed his worth with both goals for the Red Devils.

This result sparked an influx of United fans into the Tavern this weekend, with plenty of their loyal fanbase enjoying a fair few beers with our landlord in celebration of their win this weekend.

A lot of banter was flying around, but talk soon turned to who the club should look to sign in the summer, with some United fans clearly concerned that rivals City are streaking ahead of them in the Premier League and Europe.

One player who was brought up was Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl, who has been putting in some excellent performances for the yellow army this season, and is valued on Transfermarkt at a cool £27m.

The German, who is still only 22-years-old, has been a consistent performer for the German giants this term, putting in excellent performances once after another to really see his stock raise in terms of his value across the continent.

A move to a so called elite club will no doubt be on the cards for Weigl sooner or later, and with United needed assistance in the middle and the impending retirement of Michael Carrick also bound to impact proceedings in the middle of the park, Weigl would be the perfect signing.

Good on the ball, with a fantastic engine, he would be the ideal sort of player to line up alongside Paul Pogba for years to come at Old Trafford.

United fans, what do you think? Good move? Let us know in the comments!
