Manchester United close in on coveted attacker, Chelsea also keen on sealing deal

ardaMetro are the talk of the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Manchester United are closing in on a move for Arda Turan.

The attacking star is set to leave Atletico Madrid this summer and it seems that not only are Barcelona and Chelsea keen on the £25 million rated player, but Manchester United are so keen to land him, they want to get a deal finalised before anyone else can tempt the star.

Arda might be someone who struggles to control his temper at times, seeing red on more than one occasion, not to mention lobbing his boot at officials, but he is a top class player and was vital for Diego Simeone’s side in their title win a couple of seasons ago.

We think his robust nature would make him perfect for the Premier League and would love to see him under Jose Mourinho or Louis van Gaal.

Manchester United fans. Is this the kind of transfer that will win you the title? Let us know your thoughts below.
