The Football Transfer Tavern has been a hive of activity today.
Metro journalist Bruce Archer nipped by in the afternoon to tell the punters that Real Madrid are plotting a double swoop on Juventus for Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal, the same reported targets as Manchester United manager David Moyes.
Archer suggested to worried punters that the Los Blancos have even made first contact with the Serie A club about the Juve pair as Carlo Ancelotti seeks to freshen up his side during the summer.
According to Italian reports, negotiations between the two club’s took place earlier in the week as the Old Lady’s general manager Beppe Marotta was at the Bernabeu for the international between Spain and Italy.
“Today I did visit Real Madrid,’ Morata told Sky Italia. ‘But even if I had spoken about Pogba and Vidal I wouldn’t tell you.”
If this speculation is indeed true that Madrid are working hard on landing the two midfielders, then it will serve as another blow for David Moyes.
The under-pressure United boss has reportedly outlined an eight-man list as he desperately tries to revive the Red Devils before the start of the new season, with Pogba and Vidal both included.
Who do you think United should target in the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
