Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Transfer Tavern have been in a pretty downbeat mood all season, however, the news in the Sun today has somewhat perked them up!
The publication suggests that the Red Devils have been told that a deal to sign Barcelona’s Neymar is unlikely, whilst a move for Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale is something that could actually happen.
This news has got several United fans over by the pool table in the Tavern dreaming, and it’s hard to blame them, as Bale at Man United would be a pretty mouthwatering prospect for the fans of the Premier League giants.
As our landlord quips, it will be no surprise to see the Manchester club really go for it in the summer transfer window, in a bid to totally rejuvenate the beleaguered side, to ultimately make them prime title contenders once again.
A source told the Sun: “United signing Bale is the more likely deal, and maybe it is time for him to move on from Madrid.
“Bale at Old Trafford seems a more natural fit.”
