Manchester United and Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are somewhat annoyed, after the landlord showed them an article from the Daily Star, which says Valencia are set to swoop for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
The 22-year-old defensive midfielder has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, however he now looks set for a switch to La Liga outfit Valencia.
The publication claims that Valencia have held talks with Carvalho’s agent Jorge Mendes to try and force through a move.
A large amount of Manchester United fans over by the dartboard in the Tavern feel that the midfielder would be an astute purchase, but are uncertain whether the young midfielder can play in the top-flight of English football.
United fans are well aware of players failing to adapt to life in the Premier League, with Angel Di Maria and Falcao failing to live up to the hype at Old Trafford.
Liverpool and United fans inside the Tavern are clinging on to some sort of hope, with the midfielder admitting he would love to play in England.
“My dream is to play in England, said Carvalho to the Daily Star.
“I know some clubs are interested but my agent, Jorge, is looking after it and I am relaxed.
“Now my mission is to work in Sporting and they will be in charge of any transfer and my future.
Man United and Liverpool fans… Would you be gutted to lose out on this promising defensive midfielder? Or are there better options out there? Let us know your opinion in the comments below!
