They hear the latest gossip from the Daily Star, who seem to be under the impression that the club are stepping up their search to find a new centre back.
As one of our punters note, it is no small task to replace the outgoing legend that is Nemanja Vidic, even if the player’s form has taken a hit with injuries in recent seasons.
When on song, Vidic is unstoppable and we know that he has formed one of, if not the best central defensive partnership of the Premier League era with Rio Ferdinand, whose future is also in doubt.
Now, David Moyes is determined to land Porto’s Eliaquim Mangala, who is one of the hottest properties in Europe at the minute.
The French international defender is world class, and as we know, he is being chased by not just United but a host of other top sides as well.
One of our more amorous punters moves away from the pool table to make the quip that Moyes would have a tough job on his hands to land the defender if he fails to make the Champions League – when the likes of Chelsea do, and come knocking.
Do you think Mangala will snub United? Let us know your thoughts below.
