A miserable week here in the Transfer Tavern for our Manchester United fans, who saw their team crash out of the Champions League to Sevilla, while manager Jose Mourinho appeared to somewhat lose his head following the game.
The Red Devils’ exit puts more pressure on the club to win the FA Cup as they look to bring silverware to the club once more, with the Premier League title out of reach thanks to neighbours City.
Our landlord has been scratching his head at what went wrong in midweek, but one thing he is certain of is that the club need to add some genuine world class talent to the squad this summer if they are to even think about wrestling the title back from City.
One such player who he’s been harping on about for some time now is Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, who continues to have a rather uncertain future at the Spanish giants.
However, Bale would slot in perfectly at United down the right hand side, and would be the sort of world class talent who’d excite the United fans by signing.
Bale is a player of tremendous ability and is proven on the big stage, is a big character, and crucially, is a winner. He can win a game with a moment of magic on his own, while his presence in the team will no doubt lift the performances of those around him.
If United want to make a big market splash, then Bale is their man this summer.
