Manchester United fans are rolling their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as we hear the latest news from Metro who seem to think they may have hit a brick wall in their chase for Nathaniel Clyne.
The England international defender has become a top priority for United this season but given how well Southampton are doing yet again this term, we are pretty sure that they will not be so keen to sell their best players.
In fact, a new deal has even been mooted as being in the pipeline for Clyne and it seems that current manager Ronald Koeman is pretty relaxed about the situation.
Southampton boss Koeman claimed: “If I have to be worried about those kind of rumours, then I will be worried every day and I don’t like that,’ the Dutchman said. ‘I like my life and I like to be positive. It’s no issue.”
Of course as one of our punters notes, the ongoing feud between Louis van Gaal and Koeman certainly wont help matters during the negotiation phase and we think the Saints will be even more determined to keep one of their best players in light of that.
Manchester United fans. Do you think you have a hope in hell of landing Clyne this winter or will a deal have to wait until the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
