Our resident Manchester United supporting punters are still absolutely livid after their embarrassing 2-1 defeat to FC Midtjylland in the Europa League on Thursday night, though the news in Sport via the Daily Star has somewhat perked them up!
The publication suggests that United are plotting a major deal for Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte in the summer, and he looks set to be Jose Mourinho’s prime target for the Red Devils.
The outlet also claims that Manchester United are set to hand Mourinho a whopping £300 million to spend on transfers, and our resident United fans simply cannot believe what they are reading!
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks the 21-year-old centre-back would be an incredibly shrewd purchase for United, but feels the £38 million valuation is pretty extortionate for the French under-21 international.
Mike, a hardcore United fan over by the pool table, feels that United need to be rejuvenated as soon as possible, and says the club are on a scary decline at the minute!
Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Laporte at Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
