Manchester United set to beat rival to ex-Chelsea attacking midfielder?

de bruyneManchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are loving the beer and burger special today, but their mood has increased even more with the news from Metro – with the publication claiming that United are ‘clear to sign’ Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

The former Chelsea player has gone on to become one of the most wanted attacking midfielders in world football of late, and his name has popped up near enough everyday among the punters here inside the Tavern.

Manchester City are the club who have been heavily linked with a move for the Belgian starlet, but it seems that Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United could be set to rival the Citizens for the signature of the talented midfielder.

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern had his say on the matter as per usual, “De Bruyne is a very, very talented player don’t get me wrong, but I watched him play for Wolfsburg against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup last weekend on the TV here in the Tavern, and he was far from impressive, If i’m honest, I’m not convinced he can hack it in the Premier League.”

A small group of United fans by the bar here in the Tavern are excited about the prospect of KDB at Old Trafford next season, and to beat Manchester City to his signature would make the deal all the more sweeter!

Red Devils fans…. What do you make of this news? Would KDB be a good fit at Old Trafford next season? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
