It’s been an interesting summer for Man Utd so far. They’ve bagged a few signings already, with Fred undoubtedly the most high-profile, and given Jose Mourinho’s recent spending habits, it seems likely that a few more will join before the summer ends.
According to the Sun, one player that Man Utd would like to see join the club this summer is Swiss attacker Xherdan Shaqiri. Shaqiri got relegated with Stoke City last season, and he was undoubtedly the Potters’ best player during an otherwise poor campaign.
His solid form continued into the World Cup this summer, and though Switzerland were knocked out by Sweden in the round of 16, Shaqiri had a decent tournament. He bagged 1 goal and 1 assist, and he was one of his countries’ best performers.
Unsurprisingly, then, his future is a big topic of debate at the moment, and it’s fair to say that he’s popular amongst Man Utd fans.
In response to the report from the Sun, fans have taken to Twitter to talk about him, and many would like to see him join the club, it seems.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Xherdan Shaqiri for £12m is a dream Glazer transfer. Quality player for low money. I could see this one happening as Glazers will rubber stamp that transfer in a nano second. #MUFC

If Liverpool get Shaqiri for 12m I’ll be so annoyed! We need a right sided player and he’s a bargain at that price we should be all over it!! #Mufc
