Manchester United supporting punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Daily Star via Portuguese newspaper Record with excitement, with the media outlet suggesting that the Red Devils are readying a major £42.4 million January bid for Porto attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi.
The talented 25-year-old has been a standout player for the Portuguese club, and it will be no surprise to see the star join one of the world’s best football clubs.
Our resident Manchester United fans are discussing the news, and are recalling his match he played against Chelsea in the Champions League, where he quite literally obliterated Branislav Ivanovic!
Our landlord feels Brahimi is one hell of a player and would undoubtedly inject an element of pace, and direct play to the Red Devils attacking line – something that Louis van Gaal will no doubt benefit from.
The Algerian international is incredibly versatile and can operate in an array of attacking positions, but is mainly utilised as a winger or as an attacking midfielder.
Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Would this be a good signing for the Red Devils? Is £42.4 million too much? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
