The Manchester United supporters who can regularly be found here in the Transfer Tavern are extremely excited for the 2016/17 campaign, with the Jose Mourinho era set to kick off in August.
The ex-Chelsea manager has already delighted the Red Devils’ faithful with a series of quality signings and it is unlikely that his summer spending has ended just yet.
Our landlord has spotted some rather interesting news in the South Wales Evening Post today that suggests Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is a target for the Manchester United manager.
Defensive midfield is an area which the new boss is keen to strengthen and an interest in Allen has surfaced following his impressive displays for Wales in Euro 2016.
The Red Devils’ rivalry with Liverpool could be a stumbling block on any deal taking place, although the possibility of the 26-year-old leaving Anfield this summer is high considering that he has just 12-months to run on his current deal.
One Manchester United fan is sat with his pals over by the beer garden and he doesn’t believe that the Liverpool man has the required quality to improve the current Manchester United squad.
Manchester United fans, would you like to see the club sign Allen? Would he be a good signing or a panic signing? Who else should Mourinho target?
