Man United lead chase for highly-coveted African striker

Slimani.jpgManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are having a strike by the pool tables, as they demand changes from their underperforming side.

With the striking areas of the team needing big changes, our fans are pleased to hear The Sun state their side is leading the chase for Algerian hotshot Islam Slimani.

United have struggled in front of goal this season, though Wayne Rooney has finally found his feet in the attack, and Louis Van Gaal has quickly joined the pursuit of Sporting Lisbon’s Slimani- who’s valued at around £12m.

Slimani has attracted vast interest from across Europe this season with his spectacular performances for the Portuguese side, with a phenomenal record of 13 goals in 16 league games so far this term.

His record on the international stage is thoroughly impressive too, scoring 21 goals in 41 appearances for Algeria, and the player is understood to be keen on making the move to the Premier League.

Our landlord believes that with Anthony Martial impressing and Rooney starting to shine, United can afford to take a risk with Slimani and he’d love to see the Algerian in the Premier League.

United fans, is this a striker you want to see at your club? Let us know in the comments below!
