Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are very excited at the news they’re reading in Sport Bild (via the Express) – with the publication suggesting that United are closing in on a £30 million deal to sign Wolfsburg defender Ricardo Rodriguez.
The 23-year-old is one of the most accomplished left-backs in world football, and it would no doubt be a major coup if the Red Devils could secure his signature – and our landlord here in the Tavern feels the club should do everything possible to land the Swiss star.
Our landlord feels that it is essential Louis van Gaal signs cover for defender Luke Shaw, and feels Rodriguez would be a seriously astute addition for the club, and would enhance their backline considerably.
The large contingent of Manchester United fans in the corner of the Tavern also feel this would be a fantastic signing for the club, and feel he is worth the £30 million price-tag, as it is clear he is one of the best defenders in that position in Europe as it stands.
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Rodriguez at Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
