Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up after Metro claimed that Manchester United have moved closer to signing one of their top targets after a strop was thrown.
As our landlord leans over the bar, he notes that United seem to be profiting from these ‘strops’ that their targets seem to be throwing after being subbed, with Juan Mata also throwing a paddy that was the final straw in his Chelsea career under Jose Mourinho.
The new star man has already made an impact at the club and as our punters note, Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos would be expected to do the same thing.
The German international has shown interest in moving to the Premier League and after falling down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola, not to mention seeing his position filled by a host of other talented players, the call from Old Trafford could well prove to be too strong.
Our regulars who wear the red of United make it very clear that they would be more than happy to see him at Old Trafford and our landlord even makes the point that the summer may have been a massive disappointment for United fans, but this winter could well turn out to be a season changer.
Is Toni Kroos to Manchester United going to be one of the biggest stories this transfer deadline day? Let us know your thoughts below.
