The Daily Mirror have a claim that has shocked the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern, after they noted that the club have a totally new left back on their radar now.
They are reportedly looking to move for Sevilla full back Alberto Moreno, who is a target of Real Madrid to boot.
As one of our punters quips, quite why anyone would chose to pick Manchester United and more vitally, David Moyes, over Real Madrid at this current time remains to be seen, but that is what the Red Devils will be hoping for.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Leighton Baines, but that does not look like happening, with the Everton player set to pen a new long-term deal with the Toffees.
Interestingly, United were also linked with Fabio Coentrao, who looks set to leave Real Madrid. That, as our landlord points out, is why the Spanish side were looking to bring in left back Moreno.
That would of course pave the way for United to land Coentrao, which according to our regulars over by the pool table, is the more likely option for United.
The former Benfica full back wants a move and sees the chance to move to Old Trafford as a massive chance to reignite his career.
Is it Coentrao and not Moreno who is more likely to sign for United? Let us know your thoughts below.
