Deal close: Man United to sign £16m defender today

dragovicManchester United fans burst into the Transfer Tavern at early hours this morning and dived onto the sofas, not moving since, as they await confirmation of a new signing.

The Daily Express, reporting via Sportmediasetstate Manchester United are just hours away from signing Aleksandr Dragovic in a £16m deal from Dynamo Kiev.

24-year-old defender Dragovic is seen as the ideal option to bolster United’s crumbling back-line, with the latest embarrassment seeing the Red Devils throw away a lead twice against a struggling Newcastle United.

Louis Van Gaal is under intense pressure but is pushing on with his transfer business, with central-defender Dragovic set to become his latest attempt to fix a defence that he’s spent millions trying to bolster- so far to no avail.

Our landlord, and the fans, are concerned that United are paying over the odds to land this addition and they aren’t convinced that this signing will solve their problems- and will instead see Van Gaal flush more cash down the drain.

United fans, is it time for Van Gaal to go? Let us know in the comments below!
