Manchester United suffered a shock loss this weekend at the hands of newly promoted Huddersfield Town, with David Wagner’s men out battling United to a famous 2-1 win.
It was a first defeat of the season for the Red Devils and Jose Mourinho, and the club will be looking to get back to winning ways this week in the Carabao Cup and in Premier League action against Spurs next weekend.
Despite a wealth of money being spent in the summer, the Red Devils would still appear a bit short in certain areas, especially in central midfield, where the loss of Paul Pogba is being felt pretty hard.
Our landlord here in the Tavern has picked up on this, and he believes the club need to go out and splash big money on a new midfielder, and he thinks PSG’s Marco Verratti could be the perfect signing for the Premier League club.
The Italian is a dynamic sort in the middle of the park, and still has his prime years ahead of him, with Verratti still in his early 20’s and looking like being a real world class player in the making.
PSG are a unique project with their riches, but the chance to come to England play for one of the biggest clubs in the world could be something which is too tempting for Verratti to turn down. A classy midfielder, him and Pogba could be the core of United for years to come if given the chance.
United fans, what do you think to Verratti? Give us your thoughts!
