Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have moved into the bar for the week, as they await confirmation of a deal that’s reported to be imminent.
Metro cite claims that state United are deep in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain over the weekend for Ezequiel Lavezzi, who the French giants are happy to sell for the bargain price of just £6.1m.
United enjoyed a revitalising victory over arch-rivals Liverpool on Sunday and are now kicking on with their quest to land a top-four finish, which would ensure the Red Devils remain in the Champions League next term.
Argentine international Lavezzi would add a significant boost to United’s struggling forward line, though rival interest could makes things complicated for the Premier League side- as the forward is said to favour a return to Italy.
However, United are hopeful of reaching a deal imminently and PSG will not stand in their way as Lavezzi has just one-year remaining on his contract and he’s played second-fiddle since Angel Di Maria’s arrival in the summer.
Our landlord believes the wealth of experience that Lavezzi would offer will be extremely beneficial to United’s ambitions this term.
