The Daily Express have managed to get Manchester United fans looking over to the bar with unhappy expressions on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the club are set to miss out on Thomas Muller.
The Bayern Munich forward had been linked with a mega £50 million move to United, but it seems he will snub the chance to link up with Louis van Gaal and wait it out at the club, despite rumours of a rift with manager Pep Guardiola.
Now as our landlord quips by the pool table while enjoying a game with our punters, United do need a forward this summer, and should they allow Robin van Persie to leave, they will need at least two strikers to come in, so this is a blow to their plans – and they will need to move quickly to find an alternative.
Manchester United fans. How big of a blow is this to you? Would you liked to have seen Muller at Old Trafford next season? Let us know your thoughts below!
