The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are relishing the start of the Jose Mourinho era, and their supporters are eagerly anticipating which players will join the recently signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.
The former Paris Saint-Germain man has signed a one-year deal with the Manchester giants and will link up with the Red Devils following Euro 2016.
Our landlord has spotted some pretty exciting transfer news in his copy of the Daily Mail, who are suggesting that the new United boss is exploring the potential of bringing in sensational Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.
The report claims that the Red Devils have made two approaches in the last three weeks in an attempt to figure out whether a move for the superstar would be possible.
One Manchester United fan here in the Tavern has nearly choked on his pint of bitter at the prospect of this news and he thinks that the club would struggle to sign Messi this season, due to the lack of Champions League football.
Manchester United fans, what do you make to this news? Can United secure Messi next season?
