It is set to be a busy summer for Manchester United fans and Metro seem determined to keep the ones in the Football Transfer Tavern on their toes after claiming that the Red Devils are being linked with a move for Lars Bender.
The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is someone we expected to be linked with a move to Louis van Gaal’s side and a couple of our punters claim that the £25 million price tag on his head is not actually that much cash for a player of his calibre, and with Van Gaal open about the fact that he is desperate to bring in some reinforcements in the middle of the park, this seems like an ideal solution for both player and club.
Bender would relish the chance to play for a club like United and really have a shot at top trophies and titles and frankly, we do not think Leverkusen would blame him.
Manchester United fans. Do you think Lars Bender is the kind of player who would bring another dimension to your squad? Is he someone who is worth £25 million? Let us know your thoughts below.
