Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are incredibly intrigued at the news in the Daily Star – with the publication claiming that United are stepping up their interest in Portuguese midfielder Rafa Silva.
Silva, 22, currently plies his trade for Braga and it seems that Louis van Gaal is keen on luring the gifted midfielder to Old Trafford, with the gaffer sending scouts out to watch the star.
Our resident Manchester United fans enjoying a pint of the Transfer Tavern’s finest ale admit they have never actually seen the 22-year-old play, with them all hoping he can be a sensation at United, just like a certain Cristiano Ronaldo!
Meanwhile, our landlord here in the Tavern is raving about Silva, having watched the starlet play on the flatscreen TV in the pub many times – with the star impressing our landlord every time he plays!
A handful of Man United fans over in the corner of the Tavern are somewhat disgruntled at this transfer news, and would rather see the side go for players who are established, and are world-class – rather than young prodigies who have the potential to become great.
Manchester United fans……. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Rafa Silva at Old Trafford? Do you know much about him? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
