Manchester United will be on a mission this summer to add quality players to their ranks as they look to claw back the gap created between rivals City and themselves.
Manager Jose Mourinho has already acted early, bringing in the likes of Fred and Diogo Dalot already, and there is a growing feeling here in the Tavern that more and more players could be set to walk through the door at Old Trafford.
Our landlord tends to agree, and he thinks that only players of real world class ability will cut the mustard in terms of improving the first eleven.
Those players are out there, and one man our landlord thinks would be a superb addition for the Red Devils is Croatia midfielder Luka Modric, who has once again been showing his talents over in Russia this summer.
Valued at £49.5m by Transfermarkt, the impressive form Spurs man often looks a cut above most other players on the field, and he has been a key man for Real Madrid ever since making the move to the Spanish capital from Spurs.
Classy with the ball, able to create out of nothing, and someone who can win a game with a piece of magic on his own, Modric would be a superb addition at Old Trafford if a deal could be struck.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
