The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few weeks discussing who might be the next superstar to move to Old Trafford…
Last season cemented Man Utd as an irresistible outfit in Europe, with top players like Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic opting to move to Manchester in spite of the lack of Champions League football.
Of course, the chances of Man Utd reaching Europe’s golden land of the Champions League this season is looking increasingly likely, and that could mean that even more top players move to Manchester.
Indeed, it would appear as though Mourinho is preparing for that eventuality – with Yahoo Sport reporting that Chelsea star Willian and Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld are on his radar ahead of a potential move this summer.
This news has got the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern drooling into their pint glasses, with both players arguably amongst the best in the Premier League.
Toby Alderweireld has been a vital part of the Tottenham defence this season, offering dominant, dynamic and direct defensive stability – whilst Willian, who reportedly earns £110,000-per-week, has continually made an impact whenever Antonio Conte has opted to utilise him in the Chelsea attack.
Our landlord thinks that a move for Willian could actually happen, with the Brazilian often used sparingly behind Pedro. Indeed, given Mourinho’s relationship with his old player, he thinks that Willian could even be tempted by the move.
