Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are off to the bar to get a round of pints in, after seeing a report in Metro – with the publication suggesting that Manchester United are ready to seal a £37 million deal for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian striker is undoubtedly one of the best forwards currently in the Premier League, and it would be a major coup if Louis van Gaal could lure the 22-year-old to Old Trafford in this January transfer window.
Our landlord pulling pints at the bar feels this would be a magnificent bit of business for the struggling Premier League giants, and argues that this signing would no doubt make the Manchester club prime contenders for the Premier League trophy come the end of the season.
This sentiment is echoed by the resident Red Devils supporters over by the jukebox, with all of them feeling that if United signed Lukaku, he would go on and become a club legend – as he has all the credentials to become the best striker Manchester United has ever seen!
The ex-Chelsea striker has notched an impressive 15 goals in this Premier League campaign, and a handful of Toffees fans here in the Tavern feel that if Lukaku goes, they will seriously struggle to compete in the higher echelons of the division.
Man United fans….. Surely you are excited at this news? Do you agree with the landlord? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
