Man United edging closer to sealing deal for striker, talks at advanced stage

vangaal99921Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are very interested in the news filtering in from the Daily Mail – with the publication claiming that United are in talks over a deal to sign Zurich striker Nishan Burkhart.

Metro suggests that United’s deal is advanced, with him more likely to join the Red Devils over Arsenal.

Our resident Manchester United fans here in the Tavern don’t have a clue who Burkhart is, with them all asking the landlord if he has an idea who the striker is!?

Our landlord here in the Tavern has an extensive knowledge of world football, and explains how the striker is 15 years of age, and is of Swiss origin, currently plying his trade at Zurich.

This news has certainly not set the world alight here, with all the United fans arguing that Louis van Gaal should be eyeing players with profound pedigree, who are established in world football, and that can make an immediate impact!

United were booted out of the Champions League on Tuesday night, after failing to beat Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg, in the club’s final group game.

Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Do you know much about Burkhart? Is this the type of player you need to be recruiting? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
