Manchester United fans occupying the sofas by the bar are praying for brilliant additions to the squad before the window slams shut next week and they seem to have been given exactly what they requested.
The Sun cite reports from Tribal Football that state Manchester United have accelerated their interest in Sevilla ace Ever Banega, keen to push through a transfer before the window closes on Monday evening.
26-year-old Banega has been in fine-form for the Andalusian side this season, scoring six goals in 16 appearances, but he could be forced out of the club as the back-to-back Europa League winners are struggling in La Liga.
United have been extremely quiet so far this window but a swoop for Banega would represent significant business for Louis Van Gaal’s side, who are in desperate need of improvements to bolster their chances of landing a top-four finish.
Saturday’s defeat to Southampton left United five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and increase speculation on Van Gaal’s future, with the club starting to turn against him.
Our landlord believes Banega would be a good purchase but doesn’t believe only one addition will fix United’s problems and has urged the board to get stuck-in.
United fans, how many signings do you want this week? Let us know in the comments below!
