Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern simply cannot believe the news they’re reading in the Daily Star, with the media outlet suggesting that Mourinho is keen to launch a sensational £138 million move for Bundesliga duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Thomas Muller.
Talk in the Tavern is that Jose Mourinho will take over from Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, and will ultimately be given a huge sum of money to bring in the players he wants, to help rejuvenate the former Premier League champions, and subsequently bring back the glory days to the Red Devils.
A large group of Manchester United fans over by the pool table here in the Tavern feel that if United somehow pulled off this sensational double deal, they would undoubtedly be prime contenders for the Premier League trophy next season.
Meanwhile, our landlord is somewhat sceptical about this piece of gossip, and argues that United could potentially sign Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang, but a move for Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller is far from likely to happen!
