Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern stayed in the bar for a lock-in last night, as they drank until the early hours of the morning to sink their sorrows after suffering an early exit from the Champions League.
Now with the hangover of a lifetime, they’re discussing what sort of players need to come in during the window and have declared their excitement as this potential deal.
The Mail states Louis Van Gaal sent scouts to watch Marseille’s Benjamin Mendy in action against Rennes last week, as he looks to solve his full-back crisis with an experienced addition in the New Year.
United are keen to bring in defensive reinforcements after seeing Luke Shaw suffer a horrific injury in the opening match of their ill-fated Champions League campaign and Mendy appears to be top of Van Gaal’s wish-list.
Mendy, an extremely promising 21-year-old, has been linked with Arsenal in the past but United are now looking to seal the deal in the New Year.
United fans, is this a signing you desperately need or do other areas take priority? Let us know in the comments below!
