Manchester United supporters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are shellshocked at the news coming in from the Express – with the publication claiming the Red Devils are plotting a £100 million double deal for Everton pair John Stones and Romelu Lukaku.
This news has certainly caused a fracas here in the Transfer Tavern, with United fans here in the Tavern spilling their pints everywhere in sheer delight!
The Red Devils have endured an inconsistent season so far in the Premier League, with their latest 2-1 defeat to AFC Bournemouth, a real blow in their pursuit of the top spot in the Premier League.
Our landlord feels that this would be a sensational bit of business for Louis van Gaal and his team, and would ultimately give them a significantly better chance of launching a serious push for the title.
A handful of United fans here in the Tavern were all calling for Louis van Gaal to be sacked this morning, however this news has somewhat changed their mindset, with them all agreeing this would be fantastic for the club.
Tom, a hardcore United fan by the pool table here in the Tavern had his say: “Lukaku would be incredible for United, I could see him becoming a real legend at Old Trafford – same goes with Stonesy too, the lad looks like a top, top player!”
