Surely, Man United will be hoping to wrap up some big name signings in the coming weeks as Ole Solskjaer gets to work adding to his squad.
Some players will also inevitably be on their way out of Old Trafford too you would imagine, but getting the recruitment right in terms of incomings is the thing United simply have to ensure they get as close to perfection as possible this summer.
That’s why we here in the Tavern feel a big money move for Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen is something United need to seriously consider, with the Mirror reporting that his ‘dream’ move to Madrid has now collapsed
While Eriksen has been excellent for Spurs during his time there, United simply have to way of signing players who might be only coming along for the ride and a big contract, something we have seen happen far too often at the club in recent times.
If Eriksen’s heart was set as reported on a move to Madrid, then United need to ensure his head is right before committing to what will no doubt be a huge sum to prize him away from the London club.
Too many times in football we see clubs panic buy or not do their due diligence on players who they can attract, and this is the case with United in respect of Eriksen.
The Dane played a massive part for Spurs and their run to the Champions League final last season, but at a time when the focus seems to be on youth and development in terms of the Old Trafford transfer strategy, is signing a 27-year-old who has yet to prove it consistently on the biggest of stages really the wisest move?
Eriksen does, of course, bring with him class on the ball and could well improve further, but United really do need to think this one through before splashing the cash on the Spurs ace.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
