Manchester United edging close to Portuguese capture?

Fabio CoentraoThey are one half of the game of the weekend and Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are eagerly crowding around the bar to hear about the latest claim from our landlord.

The boss has heard some rather juicy gossip that has emerged from talkSPORT.

The publication claim that David Moyes and his board are finally closing in on one of their top transfer targets after Real Madrid moved closer to one of theirs.

Our punters note that it is not just a managerial merry-go-round that we are faced with as football fans, but also a player one.

The fact that Los Blancos have moved closer to one of their main targets, Sevilla full back Alberto Moreno, this means that United can now seriously make a move to finally land long-term target Fabio Coentrao.

The full back has never settled in Spain and has seen the Spanish press vilify him time and time again. Carlo Ancelotti has made it perfectly clear that he does not see a long-term future for Coentrao at the club, and the player getting himself sent off in the one chance Ancelotti gave him in the Copa Del Rey victory has not helped matters.

Moyes meanwhile is very keen on adding to his squad and is aware that landing Coentrao, even on loan, is a far easier option than Everton’s Leighton Baines.

Does Real Madrid signing Alberto Moreno mean United will finally capture Coentrao? Let us know your thoughts below.
