The Daily Star have certainly placed a couple of smiles on the faces of Manchester United fans as they claim a £20 million move for Miranda is getting closer and closer.
Our punters cannot help but make the point that Louis van Gaal is desperate for a centre back but also that given the right amount of cash on offer, Atletico Madrid can be prone to selling their best players.
Given Miranda has a £24 million release clause in his current deal, we actually think that the bigger issue for van Gaal and United would be convincing the star to move to England.
The Brazilian international’s young family is happy and settled in Madrid and that is something the defender has spoken about previously.
To land a player like the Brazilian would not only be a huge coup for United but it would be a massive boost for the back line with Miranda not only a fantastic player but also a winner.
He can defend well, score goals and marshal a team – everything that Louis van Gaal needs in his side at the minute.
Manchester United fans. Would this be a dream move that you would be willing to wait until the summer for if needs be? Let us know your thoughts below.
