Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are passing the time by playing darts, as they hope for success in their chase of a Premier League star.
It hasn’t got off to the best start, as The Daily Express state Southampton have rejected a £30m bid from the Red Devils for Senegalese forward Sadio Mane.
United are seeking additions in the forward areas this month after an underwhelming first half of the campaign, which has included an early exit from the Champions League and dropping off the pace in the Premier League title charge.
The 23-year-old was dropped for last weekend’s defeat to Norwich City having arrived two hours late to a team meeting, which intensified speculation that he will leave the South Coast, but it’s understood Mane will wait until the summer to land a high-profile transfer.
Mane, who is also attracting the interest of Chelsea and Bayern Munich, has shone in the Premier League since joining the Saints but he is now seeking a move to a bigger club as the next step in his career.
Our landlord believes Mane has made the right call by electing to wait until the summer but our United fans disagree, stating he is needed now and their side should do all they can to land his signature.
United fans, how much would you pay for Sadio Mane? Let us know in the comments below!
