Manchester United continued to keep the pressure on rivals Manchester City this weekend with a resolute display in their 1-0 win at Burnley over the weekend.
The Red Devils have been out done so far by their ‘noisy neighbours’, and manager Jose Mourinho will know deep down that he needs to be doing more at Old Trafford to ensure success comes back to a club which had become so accustomed to winning a Premier League title.
Here at the Tavern, our landlord has been having a few games of pool with some of the United fans this week, and they are adamant that from now on, only world class players will do as they seek to close the gap between themselves and City.
One such player who has been mentioned who could go o to become a great for the Red Devils is Real Madrid defender Rafael Varane, who is developing into one of the top young defenders in world football, with plenty of time ahead of him still to develop his game.
Varane is a supreme athlete, and has pace, class, and strength in abundance, everything that you need in a modern day defender.
With Eric Bailly looking the business before his injury and Phil Jones developing into one of the best in the league, United could give themselves three genuinely world class central defenders with the addition of Varane.
Madrid will not want to sell, but United have big money to spend, and Varane could be the one they look to capture.
