The Manchester United supporters here in the Transfer Tavern have been a miserable bunch this season, as Louis van Gaal struggles to bring the glory days back to Old Trafford.
With the Premier League giants set to stock with the Dutchman as he sees out the final year of his contract, talk as turned towards who might join the club in the summer.
Our landlord is getting his list of questions ready for his football quiz later on this evening, when he spots an article in the Daily Star, who are claiming that Everton midfield maestro Ross Barkley is a summer target for the Red Devils.
Barkley has been in fine form for the Toffees during the current campaign, with United hopeful of stealing a march on Manchester City by signing Barkley ahead of them.
One United fan is sat chatting with his pals by the cocktail bar here in the Tavern and claims to be ecstatic at the prospect of Barkley, stating that he knows the Premier League and could slot right into the Red Devils’ team.
Manchester United fans, would you welcome Barkley to the club? Where would you play him in the side?
