It’s been a fantastic summer for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, with champagne on ice ordered aplenty over the past few months.
Jose Mourinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are just some of the names to walk through the door at Old Trafford in recent months, giving the Red Devils their swagger back in spades.
However, the transfer-hogging Manchester titans could yet be further spoiled heading into the final days of the window.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho is prepared to wait until the closing stages of the proverbial silly season in order to make a bid for Southampton captain Jose Fonte.
Despite breaking all manner of spending records already this summer, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is understood to retain an interest in his compatriot.
Though Eric Bailly has arrived at the club, the relatively inexperienced centre-half will be leaving for the African Cup of Nations at the turn of the year.
A deal for the Saints stalwart reportedly depends on whether or not the South Coast outfit will soften their stance before the transfer window slams shut.
Our Southampton supporting punters have tears in their eyes at the mere notion of the former Crystal Palace ace leaving after such a long time at St. Mary’s, but at his age, it could be the best time to sell him.
Would Fonte give Man United the perfect squad to win the league? Let us know below!
