Manchester United fans are rolling their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim they will miss out on one of their top targets this summer unless they can secure a top four spot in the Premier League, and the return to Champions League football that comes with it.
The player in question is Wolfsburg midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who has seen his reputation skyrocket since his move from Chelsea and would now cost any potential suitors at least £30 million – and will not even consider a move to a club outside the Champions League – which could be an issue for Louis van Gaal and his men.
One of our regulars makes the point that De Bruyne did not exactly shine at Chelsea and despite being given a couple of chances to impress Jose Mourinho, looked like a player who enjoys being a big fish in a small pond and not the other way around – and Old Trafford is a bigger pond than even Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United fans. Will you manage to finish in the top four or will you miss out and see your summer transfers take a hit because of it? Let us know your thoughts below.
