Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful of some big-name signing this summer and they’ve raised their glasses in approval to the latest name touted for a move to Old Trafford.
Spanish outlet Don Balon state Jose Mourinho, widely regarded as the favourite to take over at Manchester United, wants to sign Arda Turan from Catalan giants Barcelona.
Turn only joined Barcelona from fellow La Liga giants Atletico Madrid last summer and was unable to feature until January due to the club’s registration ban. However, since then, he’s struggled to secure regular first-team football.
The Turkish international was previously a target of Mourinho’s during the Portuguese boss’s reign at Real Madrid, although a transfer was never likely to be completed due to the intense rivalry between Real and city-rivals Atletico.
Manchester United, however, have a genuine chance of landing the signature of the experienced 29-year-old and Mourinho is looking to complete a deal which our landlord believes would be a tremendous piece of business.
United fans, would Turan be a good signing for your club? Let us know in the comments below!
