Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are in an awful mood after they were downed 1-0 by West Brom on Sunday, but the news coming in from French outlet Le Sport 10 has caused a fracas!
The publication claims that Mourinho has contacted PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic regarding a potential free transfer to Manchester United, and this is something that our Red Devils fans think is an unbelievable proposition.
As our landlord quips, the Swedish striker is reaching the latter stages of his career in football at the age of 34, but he is still banging in the goals, having scored 31 goals in all competitions so far this season.
The majority of the United punters here in the Tavern think this would be a sensational bit of business if they could get him on a free transfer, and feel they could get at least one good season out of the prolific frontman.
United face a tricky match with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in the Europa League on Thursday evening, in what is the first clash between the two in a European competition.
Man United fans….. What do you make of this news? Could you envisage seeing Ibra at Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
