The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been an excitable bunch this weekend, following their team’s 3-2 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon.
Marcus Rashford’s brace and a deflected strike from Ander Herrera handed United victory and left the Gunners’ title quest in tatters.
Our landlord has spotted some news which might keep the United fans’ spirits in today’s Daily Express, who suggest that United are keen on securing the services of Inter Milan defender Miranda.
The Brazilian is highly-rated by ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and with the Portuguese boss likely to take over the Old Trafford reigns in the summer, it is thought that United have opened talks over a transfer for the player.
The central defender is currently on loan at the Serie A side from Atletico Madrid and the Spanish club are likely to be keen to sell the player.
One United fan here in the Tavern is enjoying a pint with the landlord and thinks the Brazilian defender would be a great signing for the club, believing that strengthening the defensive unit must be a priority.
United fans… What do know about Miranda? Would you like to see the player at Old Trafford?
