Manchester United fans are full of hope in the Football Transfer Tavern after finding out that their manager hopes to use his new summer signings to help lure in Real Madrid’s out of favour defender.
According to The Express, Louis van Gaal hopes to use Angel Di Maria and Ramadel Falcao to help him attract Fabio Coentrao from the Champions League winners.
The sturdy full back has recently become available with Carlo Ancelotti hoping to sign a new left back with Coentrao set to be sacrificed to make way for the newcomer.
Some punters ask ‘Where do Di Maria and Falcao come into the equation?’
Well; it is because they all share the same agent – Jorge Mendes – and van Gaal hopes this link will help him sign the experienced defender.
Fellow team-mate Marcelo has been preferred to the Portuguese international with the latter only appearing three times this season and van Gaal is hoping he can take advantage of this situation.
Despite Coentrao being a good player, some punters see the Red Devils’ interest as madness as they have already spent a whopping £30 million on England international Luke Shaw.
After Shaw’s arrival at Old Trafford however, Louis van Gaal slammed the 19-year-old, claiming he was unfit after returning from a summer holiday.
Manchester United fans. Should you sign Coentrao or should you put your faith in Luke Shaw long-term? Let us know your thoughts below.
