Man United have started the season in good form but still look some way off toppling Man City, who seem to be a cut above the rest at the moment in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have managed to get their heads down and pick up results despite City’s start, but there is still some way to go to best their rivals this season.
Our landlord here in the Tavern has been impressed with United though in the main, but he still thinks the club should go out and make a huge splash in the transfer market to send a message to the rest of the Premier League and Europe that they mean business.
One player he thinks would tick all the boxes and come at a hefty price is current Real Madrid star and Spanish wonderkid Marco Asensio. The attacking midfielder has really developed this season and appears to be a world class talent in the making, with Zinedine Zidane more than happy to put his faith in the youngster in crucial games for Los Blancos.
His ability to score the spectacular makes him an eye catching player, but it’s not just this which makes him a top player, and Man United don’t currently have anyone like him in their squad at the moment.
Asensio will undoubtedly go on to be a world renowned talent and name in football, and if United were to swoop now and splash the big bucks, they could well have a star for years to come.
United fans, what do you make of Asensio? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
