Manchester United can almost call it a day in terms of winning the Premier League title this season as neighbours Man City run away with the Premier League in supreme fashion.
As much as it will pain United fans and Jose Mourinho to admit, the Red Devils can simply not get near City in terms of quality of performances this season, and our landlord here in the Tavern is growing increasingly concerned about the gap which is developing between the two.
With the January window approaching and Mourinho making no secret of the fact he thinks his club need to spend even more money, our landlord thinks they should revisit a big summer transfer target and try and get him in before the end of the winter window. That player? Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.
The Croatian has really developed over the last few years into one of the few genuine world class wingers in world football, and despite United being blessed with the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in wide areas, they do lack a genuine wide-man.
Perisic fits the mould perfectly, and once again this season he has been in excellent form, knocking in seven goals already and laying on another six for his teammates.
Pacey, powerful, and with a real eye for goal, the Croat would be a superb addition at Old Trafford as he begins to enter what should be his prime years at 28-years-old.
If Mourinho wants real difference makers in his team, then Perisic is the sort of player he needs to be looking to sign.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
