The Manchester United supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are expecting big things to come from the summer transfer window, with the club hoping to secure a place among the Premier League’s top four.
United are unlikely to be in the Champions League next season and that could make life difficult when it comes to trying to sign players.
Some news has emerged courtesy of The Sun, via reports in Portugal, which suggest that the Red Devils have been scouting Sporting Lisbon duo William Carvalho and Joao Mario, ahead of summer moves.
Defensive midfielder Carvalho has been scouted on several occasions by Premier League clubs whilst Mario is primarily a left-winger who has an eye for goal.
Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho could take over the managerial position at Old Trafford in the summer, with the report suggesting that the ex-Chelsea boss has sanctioned the move for the Sporting pair.
One United fan is sat playing on the fruit machine here in the Tavern and he is convinced that the pair will sign for United, stating that they seem like the type of players the club will be forced to sign, with no offer of Champions League football.
Manchester United fans, would you welcome this duo? Who else should the club sign?
