Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping there will be a lot of movement going in and out the Old Trafford door before the window slams shut in August, as they are in desperate need of a huge re-jig of the squad.
Jose Mourinho, it seemed, had surely signed one the stars of the Premier League in the last window, and many of our regulars certainly didn’t see it coming. However, there is still much talk about outgoings needing to happen to balance the books after a fair few windows of heavy spending.
With United looking very strong and have had undoubtedly their best season in the post-Fergie era, Mourinho will have to step up his ruthless game in order to keep things fresh and vibrant. If he has ambitions of winning the Premier League, certain players need to pull their socks up or ship out before the start of next season
With that in mind, our landlord takes a better look at this one flop of a player that he thinks should be moved on this summer window…
OUR VERDICT – Matteo Darmian
The Italian fullback hasn’t really found his feet at United. He was brought in under ex-boss Louis Van Gaal and, since then, has slowly declined. He’s struggling for bench time never mind the first-team action and, with United looking to get even stronger, it’s hard to see where the break for Darmian is going to be.
His best bet at this stage would be to cut ties and force a move out as soon as possible in order to re-find his form and confidence.
