Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to the news of a further two players getting one-year contract deals.
Ashley Young and Daley Blind follow Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Luke Shaw in getting one-year deals to take them to 2019 with the club. Our regulars can’t weigh up if this is a good thing or not just yet. With Michael Carrick retiring, Zlatan Ibrahimovic possibly moving on and Fellaini looking likely to leave on a free, there seems to be plenty of movement in and around Old Trafford.
However, Jose Mourinho will be delighted to secure two further players for next season, as he bids to hunt down the pack to win his first Premier League title during his time at the Red Devils.
Indeed, the majority of the pub seems okay with the decision to extend the latest two’s contracts, but our landlord thinks that United have made a mistake and may come to regret the decision further down the line…
