Manchester United fans are able to take some heart from the latest claim from Metro here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
This is after the publication claimed that they have been handed a huge boost in their race for Cagliari’s Davide Astori.
The Italian defender is hot property at the minute and has not only United chasing after him, but also Serie A giants Roma and AC Milan.
One of our punters notes that given the form of United this season, we would not exactly be rushing to join the club in the summer, but Astori seems to be keen on a move to England – and the Red Devils themselves.
The player was asked about his future, and he claimed: “I am very attracted to the Premier League.
“It’s a beautiful league with many great teams. I would like to play there certainly.”
There is a £10 million price tag on the head of the player – but as our punters note over a game of pool, it is a very reasonable one, and we think that for that money, United should certainly take a chance on the Serie A star.
Given their current skipper Nemanja Vidic is leaving in the summer, and there are big questions over the future of the rest of the back four, a defender incoming is a must.
If you were David Moyes, would you splash £10 million on Davide Astori? Let us know your thoughts below.
