The Daily Mirror have managed to get Chelsea fans looking irate here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think Manchester United are preparing to make a move for Asmir Begovic.
The Stoke City goalkeeper has been identified as Jose Mourinho’s first choice replacement for Petr Cech, but as United face up to losing David De Gea, it seems they could well decide to swoop in on the £8 million bidding war for Begovic.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, the lure of joining United and not Chelsea is obvious – the Blues would only let Begovic sit on the bench, whereas a move to Manchester United would see him installed as the number one keeper and playing week in week out.
Chelsea fans…… Will United manage to land Begovic because they will be able to offer him first team football? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
