Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern playing a game of beer pong are excitedly discussing reports of the club making their first moves to land significant summer transfer business.
Italian publication ITA Sport Press have revealed Manchester United are ready to offer Sevilla defender Ever Banega wages of £3.5m-a-year to convince the Argentine international to swap Andalusia for the North West of England.
27-year-old midfielder Banega has been identified as a top-target for Manchester United, who are looking to invest significantly in a squad overhaul this summer to fight back from another disappointing campaign.
United will face stiff competition for Ever Banega, with the report stating Inter Milan are also keen on his services, but the wages offered by the Premier League giants are significantly higher than that of their Serie A counterparts.
Banega first emerged as a target for Manchester United in January but a move never materialised.
Our landlord isn’t taking these reports at face value though, as he believes no deal will be approved until United have their next long-term manager in place.
United fans, would Banega be an upgrade to your midfield options? Let us know in the comments below!
