Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are getting extremely excited by a rumour that’s emerged today, which suggests one of the biggest player’s in European football could be lured to Old Trafford.
The Daily Mirror state United are readying a move for Bayern Munich ace Arjen Robben, following reports that the Dutchman has fallen out with team-mate Robert Lewandowski and could leave Bavaria.
With Lewandowski declaring Robben is too selfish, preferring instead to play alongside Douglas Costa and Kingsley Comen, and the former Chelsea and Real Madrid star is not happy with those comments.
Manchester United are now looking to reunite Robben with his former Holland coach, Louis Van Gaal, with the player fitting the Red Devils boss criteria as he looks for a talented wide-man to bolster his squad in their pursuit of the Premier League title.
Robben will not come cheaply but there’s not many wingers better in world football than the Dutch star, so fans at the bar are delighted with these links.
United fans, is Robben a player you should be pursuing in January? Let us know in the comments below!
