Our resident Manchester United fans have been getting extremely excited about the increasing speculation linking Mourinho with the top job at Old Trafford, however, their dreams look set to be dashed, according to this….
Respected Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan is reporting via Dutch outlet De Telegraaf that Louis van Gaal is staying at United, and will be given ‘100 million euros’ to spend on attacking talent in the summer.
This news has certainly caused a fracas here in the Transfer Tavern, with the majority of Manchester United fans feeling that LVG simply has to go, after a disappointing season which will see the club not pick up any silverware again.
Meanwhile, a minority of United fans here in the Tavern are incredibly pleased about this news, with them all admitting they feel the Dutchman has been made the scapegoat week in week out, and it’s the players’ fault for the lack of success at Old Trafford.
De Telegraaf reports that Everton forward Romelu Lukaku is a prime target for the Red Devils in the summer, and our landlord feels he would be the perfect striker for the club, and would ultimately provide the firepower they need to seriously compete for the Premier League title.
United fans….. What do you make of this news? Is LVG staying a good or bad thing? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
