Metro have caused all kinds of controversy here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that James Milner has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
The Manchester City midfielder is leaving the club this summer after running down his contract and refusing to pen a new deal, and it had been thought that Liverpool were leading the race for the player – until Manchester United and Louis van Gaal showed an interest in Milner.
Now as one of our punters notes over a pint, this would not go down well at all in the blue half of Manchester – or the red of Merseyside, and we think that United would love to not only sign a quality player on a free, but also annoy their rivals to boot.
Milner could be just the kind of player manager Louis van Gaal wants given his defensive minded play, and we cannot wait to see how this one plays out.
Manchester United fans. Is Milner the man for you? Let us know your thoughts below.
