Our Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are already a fair few pints down as they prepare for their clash with St Etienne tonight.
The Red Devils are currently 3-0 up on aggregate, after a convincing win in the first tie at Old Trafford, though face a tricky encounter in France this evening.
However, our landlord has put the game to one side for a minute, having been handed some information from Swedish media outlet HD – which claims that Swedish wonderkid Alex Timossi Andersson is set to arrive at Carrington to undergo a week trial at the Premier League giants.
The gifted young striker has already made his debut for his current club Helsingborg at the tender age of 16, and it’s clear that this boy is a man in demand, with Bavarian powerhouse Bayern Munich also casting eyes over the wonderkid.
The Manchester United fans by the jukebox here in the Tavern admit they are incredibly excited about this news, and hope he turns into the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic if he joins the club!
Our landlord admits he’s hardly seen the prodigy in action, but thinks this is the right move from Man United, and feels the Red Devils are a club that need to be attracting the world’s best young footballers.
United fans…. Excited about this? Let us know your thoughts below!
