The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a busy summer transfer window this year…
However, they were hoping that the majority of their business would be with regards to incoming players. After all, the Red Devils desperately need to upgrade their squad ahead of next season.
Despite this, however, all the talk in the Transfer Tavern at the moment is about a potential outgoing player, and the latest update is a disappointing one for Man Utd fans. According to the Mirror, Real Madrid are reportedly ‘determined’ to secure a deal for David De Gea this summer, having made the Spanish shot-stopper their number one target.
This news will likely delight the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, given that the Mirror have noted that De Gea is now the club’s primary goalkeeping target ahead of Thibaut Courtois, with the Belgian now looking likely to stay in Stamford Bridge this summer. Indeed, the report also mentions that Eden Hazard remains a firm target for Los Blancos, but news that De Gea is their priority target has also given the Blues in the pub hope that Hazard may remain at Chelsea for another year.
The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are pretty concerned about this because De Gea has arguably been their best player this season. An unbelievable shot-stopper, our landlord thinks De Gea would be irreplaceable this summer, and so Jose Mourinho will need to work hard to avoid a disaster at Old Trafford.
Man Utd are reportedly already chasing AC Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma as a potential replacement, but would he be a good fit? Have your say below…
