Manchester United fans are looking rather excited here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim the club have already secured the signatures of two players.
The Red Devils have of course struggled in a major way this season and now it seems that the club could well witness a turnaround in fortunes.
One of our punters moves away from a game of pool and over to the bar to order another beer, and tells our landlord that the club are in dire need of several players.
Not only is David Moyes facing the loss of Nemanja Vidic, but Robin van Persie and also Patrice Evra could well be on their way out of the club.
This means that the club are in need of both transfer replacements and also for the under performing current crop who are not exactly competing as they would like.
In what has been billed as the worst defence of a Premier League title in recent memory, United have majorly stumbled under Moyes, and the manager has faced an increasing amount of pressure as the season has progressed.
Our landlord thinks that being able to announce the capture of two world class players as soon as the window opens would be a major coup for the manager.
