Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are licking their lips in excitement, partly due to our new pulled pork burger but mostly down to the fact they’re extremely excited by a staggering report from the continent.
German media outlet Bild states Manchester United are looking to raid Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen, as they seek to sign a defender, midfielder and a striker from the Champions League outfit.
The Red Devils, who infamously sold Javier Hernandez to the German outfit last summer, are eyeing moves for defender Omer Toprak, midfield sensation Hakan Calhanoglu and pacy forward Karim Bellarabi.
Of the trio, Calhanoglu is the most exciting as the Turkish dead-ball specialist has attracted big clubs from around Europe and he’s even been compared to Arsenal’s Premier League superstar Mesut Ozil.
Topeka would also bolster a United defence that’s been leaky at stages this season, whilst German international Bellarabi could add a new dimension to the Red Devils attack and create a deadly forward trio alongside Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay.
Our landlord, however, doesn’t feel United will be able to snatch the full set from Leverkusen and suggests it’s likely to be just one or two- and he knows who his favourite would be!
United fans, which of these three would you pick as a priority? Let us know in the comments below!
